On Saturday of this week F. W. Wheeler & Co., West Bay City, Mich., will launch two ore-carrying steamers of the largest class, one for the Roby Transportation Co. of Detroit, to be named L.C. WALDO, and the other for the Eddy-Shaw company of Bay City, to be named CITY OF BANGOR. Double launches have become quite common on the lakes of late, but no such ships as these have up to this time been launched from one yard on the same day.
