Collingwood, Ont. Aug. 20. -- The Collingwood Shipbuilding Company yesterday launched from their yards one of the largest steel steamships ever built in Canada. The launching was witnessed by 500 people, and as the big boat glided down the ways, Mrs. Fetherstonhaugh, wife of her prospective commander, with the usual ceremony, named the boat "MIDLAND KING." She will be put on the upper lakes route, carrying grain and ore.
