Morning Star (Barge), 1 Mar 1874
- Full Text
THE SIAMESE TWINS
Two Schooner Barges, named respectively CHANG and ENG. were sucessfully launched from the shipyard of W. Crossthwaite in East Saginaw on Friday. They clear for Buffalo with lumber, load with coal at that port and come to Chicago, to enter the grain trade. Their aggregate carrying capacity is about 100,000 bushels of wheat.
The Saginaw reporters have gone into the baptizing business, but their work dosentt stick. One of them named the two vessels launched from the Crossthwaite yard, CHANG and ENG. but the owners call them the NORTH STAR and the EVENING STAR.
NOTE Both the above reports are wrong, the barges were the MORNING STAR and EVENING STAR, McN.
