      The Duluth & Iron Range Railway Co., which controls the movement of vast quantities of ore from Two Harbors, Minn., will have in the steel tug EDNA G., launched at the yard of the Cleveland Ship Building Co. Saturday, the finest craft of her kind on the lakes. The tug sustained some little damage in launching, but the injuries were not serious. This tug will be worth about $40,000 when completed. She is 100 feet over all, 23 feet beam and 13 feet depth, and has engines of 18 and 40 inches
cylinder diameters, by 30 inches stroke. Steam will be furnished by a Babcock & Wilcox water tube boiler. The pilot house and quarters forward will be. patterned after the houses of seagoing tugs, and the finish and furnishing of the cabin and officers ' quarters will be as elaborate as that of the best freight vessel.
