Detroit Advertiser and Tribune (Detroit, MI), 17 Jul, 1877
- Full Text
Previous to being changed from a propeller to a schooner barge, the Thomas A. Scott carried one thousand tons of freight. Now she carries 1,320 tons, or 320 tons more than formerly. This will give a fair idea of the weight of a propeller's machinery, together with the coal necessary for consumption, to say nothing of the space occupied. It is considered altogether probable that the Gordon Campbell will also be converted into a schooner barge, with proportionate gain in carrying capacity.
