NOTES FROM LAKE SHIP YARDS.
The new passenger steamer PITTSBURG, building at Collingwood, Ont., for the Windsor, Detroit & Sault line will leave Collingwood in about two weeks to receive cabin and stateroom outfit. The Pittsburg is built of wood and is strengthened by 25 tons of steel strapping and the Canadian inspectors have pronounced the hull one of the strongest in Canadian waters. The new boat is 232 feet length at water line 212 feet over all 45 feet beans to the guards and 13 feet depth. She has two decks and her 125 staterooms will carry 26.5 persons. The dining room and main saloon will be on the main deck. The vessel is designed to develop a speed of 13 knots. Her first trip will be made June 18.
