The steambarge Edward Buckley, Capt. Thos. Peterson, got away from the shipyard Friday and the following day loaded hardwood lumber at Empire, Mich., for delivery at Chicago. The Buckley is in fine shape after receiving a rebuild at the yards of Rieboldt & Wolter this winter and Capt. Peterson is to be congratulated on her fine appearance and general seaworthiness. Many changes were made in the cabin and sleeping quarters for'ard, and without exception the Buckley is one of the most comfortable and commodious lumber boats on the lakes. The Buckley will continue in the trade between Empire and Chicago for the Wiltse Lumber Co.
