      Hawgood & Canfield, Cleveland vessel brokers, have sold the lumber schooner LITTLE JAKE to J. V. Lutts of Port Clinton, O., for $5,000. The boat was owned by the Hawgood & Avery Transit Company. J. J. Ward, who recently purchased one of the old steamers of the Goodrich Transportation Company and has just paid $100,000 to Comstock & Churchill of Alpena for the steamer NIKO and consort CHURCHILL, is a Chicago distiller. The boats have a combined carrying capacity of about 2,500 tons and their insurance valuation is $112, 000. G. G. Hadley of Toledo now owns two-thirds of the big wooden steamer bearing his name, having purchased G. H. Ketchum's interest, the price being reported at $50,000. Capt. M. J. Galvin of Buffalo has bought three-fourths of the steamer J. H. SHRIGLY of Barber, Scully & Co. of Dunkirk. Her engine is being changed into a compound, 20 and 40 by 30 inches, and she is getting a new steel boiler.
