The new Anchor Line steamer DELAWARE is launched this afternoon at the Ecorse yard of the American Shipbuilding Company at Detroit. A party from Buffalo went up last night to witness the launching, and included Mr. & Mrs. James Cary Evans, Charles L. Fox, Chief Engineer of the Line, and Mr. & Mrs. Letchworth. Mrs James C. Evans christens the ship. The DELAWARE is of steel and a sister ship of the MUNCY. She replaces the old wooden arch DELAWARE, which, together with other similar boats of this line, have been replaced with steel steamers.
