Full Text

Through its negotiations with Eddy Bros. and John Shaw of Bay City for new vessels, the Detroit Dry Dock Company a short time ago secured control of the steamer JOHN F. EDDY and consort JOHN SHAW, at a price, according to reports, of $118,700, $85,000 for the EDDY and $33,700 for the SHAW. The dry dock company in turn sold the boats to the International Sulphite Fiber Company of Detroit for $116,250. This latter company also owns the propeller A.G. LINDSAY. Capt. M.W. Humphrey will manage the boats.
