One of the two steamers that are building at the Cleveland works of the American Ship Building Co. for transatlantic service, and which are to be of 7,000 tons capacity each on ocean draught, was launched on Saturday last and named MINNETONKA. It is expected that the MINNETONKA will be taken down to the seaboard in two parts before the close of canal navigation, but the second ship will not go down until next spring. The MINNETONKA was christened by Miss Marion Wetmore, daughter of Mr. R. C. Wetmore, secretary of the ship building company. Chas. E. & W. F. Peck, insurance brokers of New York, represent the principal stockholders in the American Navigation Co., which is to own and operate these ships.
