The large steel steamer CHRISTOPHER recently completed at West Superior for the Milwaukee Tugboat Line Syndicate made her first appearance here yesterday with a cargo of nearly 6,100 tons of coal, which is now being discharged at the Northwestern Fuel Company's lower yard. In general appearance, construction and finish the CHRISTOPHER bears out all that has been claimed for her. The appointments of the craft are perfect throughout, and her chief officers rank with the very best on the lakes. She ought to, and no doubt will, prove a money-maker for her owners, chief among whom is the veteran Com. C.H. Starke.
