The new steel steamer HUGAMO, built for the Hugamo Steamship Co., composed of H. T. Morley and others, will be launched at the Wyandotte yards of the Detroit Shipbuilding Co., at 3 o'clock this afternoon.
      The new boat was built expressly for salt water trade and will be taken to the coast as soon as she can be finished. She is constructed strictly according to the British Lloyd's classification, and every part of her is son constructed as to give the best and quickest service as a tramp steamer on the ocean.
      The HUGAMO is 250 feet between perpendiculars, 40 feet beam and 26 feet 5 inches molded depth. She will be equipped with triple expansion engines with cylinders 18 x 20, with a 36 inch stroke.
