ANDASTE and CHOCTAW are the names to be given to the steamers of monitor type now under construction at the yard of the Cleveland. Ship Building Company for the Lake Superior Iron Company. It is remarkable that the names of all the Lake Superior company's, steamers excepting the JOLIET contain just seven letters and an additional "1" will be added to the JOLIET this year to make the names of this fleet uniform.
