- Full Text
Wheeler & Co. of West Bay City on Saturday launched the steamer YU LU, owned by George D. Emory of Boston, Mass. She is a twin screw steamer, 140 feet in length, with 26 feet beam and 9 feet depth of hold. She is intended for the mahogany trade at Nicaragua, her name signifying "mahogany."
There is little doubt that Capt. James Davidson will build one or two more big wooden boats during the coming winter. He builds on his own account and has money to carry on work at all times. Moreover he has on hand a very large quantity of oak timber, 8,000 pieces, which he is desirous of working off.
