Capt. Alexander McDougall's cigar-shaped barge, launched at Duluth last Saturday, is being examined by the committee for a classification in Inland Lloyd's Register. The committee is somewhat puzzled, as the boat is something new in marine architecture and has features not covered in the requirements for a high rating, and some important points are omitted. The Chicago hull pool has taken her insurance, and Capt. Rardon says that is the best proof of his confidence in the new boat's success. He stated that she cannot be sunk by any storm.
