The ADMIRAL FARRAGUT after being at the yards of the Seattle Construction & Dry Dock Co for several weeks was delivered to her owners last week, practically rebuilt. She was converted into an oil burner and her upper works rebuilt and cargo gear renewed. Staterooms for 112 first cabin and 48-second cabin passengers have been provided. With new furnishings, first-class accommodations and modern cargo facilities, the FARRAGUT is excellently equipped for the coastwise business for which she was purchased. The vessel was formerly operated on the Atlantic by the American Mail Steamship Co and arrived in Seattle several months ago. She will prove one of the most popular vessels on the Seattle-San Francisco route."
