WILL COST $50,000TO REPAIR STR ZIMMERMAN.
Cleveland, June 9. -- It will take at least two months for the Lake Shipyards to complete repairs on the steel vessels now lined up waiting to go into drydocks. The steamer ZIMMERMAN, which was sunk in collision with the SAXONA in the Soo Passage on her first trip, will be at the local shipyard for seven or eight weeks, and the repair bill will be between $50,000 and $60,000. The steamer CRESCENT CITY and barge MANILA, recently released from the beach near Duluth, will be repaired at Ohio ports and they will both be big jobs.
The MANILA will be converted into a steamer, but the change will not be made until next winter. Repairs on the MATAAFA will probably be made at Superior. Little will be known regarding the condition of the EDENBORN until she has been released at Split Rock. The steamers ROMAN, recently released, and the GRECIAN, now sunk at Detour, will have to go into drydock for repairs.
