- Full Text
Edward Smith of Brown & Co., Buffalo vessel agents, has been appointed manager of the steel steamer E. P. WEED, the steamer J. C. PRINGLE and consorts SWEETHEART, HARRISON, and SUNSHINE, of the Hollister Transportation Company's fleet. C. H. Woodruff will act as treasurer of the company. Mr. Woodruff heretofore has had more work to look after than one man could attend to properly, and Mr. Smith is in position to take good care of the charters for the vessels. The Hollister Brothers are principal owners of the big steel steamer being built by Wheeler at West Bay City. Capt. A. Wolvin, vessel agent of Duluth, who has an interest in the ship, probably will be her manager.
