The new steel steamer KANAWHA known as No. 17 was successfully launched at the yards of the Jenks Ship Building Co. shortly after 2 o'clock this afternoon. The ice in the river had been broken by the steamer CONGER during the week. The KANAWHA is modeled after the steamer KENNEBEC which was built about two year ago. The launch was witnessed by a large number of people as it was the first winter affair of the kind ever known in Port Huron. The boat will be completed for the opening of navigation. The KANAWHA was built for F.A. Cheesebrough of Bay City.
