Detroit Harbor. Fishing from Detroit Harbor has become quite an industry of late, up till about five years ago, when the Hill Bros. began operations here, there were none. Since then Capt. Jno. Cornell, tug Unknown; Capt. Uls. Cornell, tug Welcome; Capt. P.M. Chambers, tug L. B. Hill; and lately the Duclon Bros. have brought their new tug , the Pilgrim, here. Harry Chambers and Louis Johnson and some others have sail boats. Louis Johnson has a large, roomy boat, built especially for the business last winter, and Harry Chambers is getting new canvass [sic] all around on his packet so he will be ready to scrape the flies off the weather side of any boat happening along his way. Capt. Pete Jordan, of the tug Truscott, in company with Mr. Freyberg and others are to operate out of West Harbor this fall. West Harbor for fall fishing reminds the writer of Geo. Peck's rotten eggs, 5c a small and one smell is enough.
