Mt. Clemens (Mich.) is rapidly making a name for herself as a lake shipbuilding port. The yard of Wm. Dulac annually turns out from three to five vessels which are filling no inconsiderable niche the lake carrying trade. In the past few years he has built the A. Weston, Canisteo, Annabel Wilson, F. R. Buell, T. D. Stimpson*, J. B. Lozen, Ben Harrison and many others. The barge now on the stocks for Whitaker and Son, of this city, will be the largest thus far built at this yard, and will carry over 1,800 tons of ore.** From the shipyard to the mouth of the river, dredges are busily at work deepening the channel and cutting off abrupt angles in the course of the river. . When the work is completed, Capt. Dulac will have plenty of room and water to launch a boat 300 feet in length.
