The Chicago Ship Building Co., Globe Iron Works Co. and Detroit Dry Dock Co. are all understood to be figuring on the large sidewheel steamer that is to be built by C. F. Bielman and others of Detroit for the Detroit-Port Huron service. Although the Detroit owners of steamers on this river service are spending about $30,000 in rebuilding the engines of the wrecked GREYHOUND. they are determined upon another side-wheel steamer. which is not to be ready for service, however, until the spring of 1900. She will he a three-decker of very large dimensions with great capacity for excursionists. Engines are to be of the inclined triple expansion type.
