STRANGE RIVER CRAFT
GOES ON LONG JOURNEY
A boat has recently been completed
aft Chicago for use on a I'razilian
river, and has been taken by its own
er on a trip of several thousands of
miles via the drainage canal, the Illi
nois andi Mississippi rivers, (Julf of
Mexico, Caribbean sea and Atlantic
ocean to its destination. The craft
and the fact of its being built at this
point so remote from the place where
it will be used furnishes the best jhs-
sible evidence of the lack of develojv
inent in manufacturing lines in the
south. The boat, which has been
christened' the Kuo Salvador, tied upat
St. Louis on the way down and is de
scribed by the (;iobe-lemocrat :
"The Sao Salvador, Ihe queerest
craft 1hat has anchored at St. Louis
in yearss was tied up yesterday at the
harbor office, foot of Market street.
The boat is owned by Kobert Wall, a
Brazilian trader, who is" taking her
to the state of Maranham, Brazil,
through which the Itapicura river
flows, ami, which she will navigate.
"A crowd of rivermen and wharf
loungers collected yesterday to view
the boat. The most interesting fact
connected' with the Sao Salvador is
that she is on one of the longest voy
ages ever launched upon by a vessel
of her kind. The Sao Salvador is rad
ically different from anything ye.t
seen around St. Louis. One riverman
remarked yesterday that she resem
bleL more than anything else- he
knew of, the old'style shingle boats
which plied the river 25 years ago.
"The boat is flat-bottomed, and has
a length of 1)0 feet, with a beam of
162 feet. Her light draught is 3'.
inches aft, by 2 feet forward, and
loaded to her full capacity, she draws
only 4 feet of water. The hull is en
tirely of steel plates, and all her other
stays and permanent parts are of
"Mr. Wall is one of the most ex
tensive traders in the state of Maran
ham. He owns several boats which
ply the Itapicura river a distance of
270 miles from its outlet into the At
lantic ocean. On his trijs he collects
principally hides, cotton, goat skins
ami rubber, all of which he exports to
airents in either New York or some
