Full Text

The first launch of the several steel tow barges that have been under way at the yards of the Chicago Ship Building Co. during the winter took place on Saturday last. The vessel is the CARRINGTON, 386 feet long, 44 feet beam and 26 feet depth of hold. She is named for Mr. Carrington of the Chicago grain firm of Carrington, Hannah & Co., who is interested in her, as well as in one or two other vessels built of late in Chicago. The CARRINGTON will be owned by C. W. Elphicke and others and will be commanded by Capt. Geo. Trotter. She will tow behind the steamer GEORGE N. ORR, which is also managed in the office of C. W. Elphicke & Co., Chicago. Although it seems only a short time since the Chicago Ship Building Co. was organized, this vessel is the twenty sixth on the company's list of new ships. Such a record certainly speaks well for the management.
