Davis Lester of Marine City was in Detroit Monday, looking after an engine for the steam barge just completed at his yard. He will visit Cleveland before making a purchase. The new craft will be towed as a barge by the steam barge TEMPEST until the machinery is ready. [ C.F. CURTISS]

The barge CURTIS, recently built at Marine City by D. Lester, is now unloading at Bay City the last cargo of lumber that she will take out as a tow barge. She will come to Buffalo with the lumber in tow of the BIRKHEAD and have her machinery put in. Her boiler will be 12 x 18, with a steam dome 5 ¼ X 12, formed of steel that stood a test of 79,000 pounds. Her engine will turn an 11 foot wheel, and is being built at the King iron Works by Mr. H.G. Trant.
