Duluth's second shipyard is about to be started. It will turn out wooden vessels, the first order having been given by Captain Yocum to Napoleon Grignon for an 800 ton tow barge designed for carrying lumber. Its measurements are 140 feet keel and 32 feet beam, and the launching will occur next spring. This will be the largest wooden vessel ever turned out on Lake Superior. It is expected that Capt. McDougall's shipyard will be running full time before many days.
