The stm. BADGER STATE has been remeasured by Deputy Collector of Customs, D.C. Brawn. This steamer which was converted into a floating poolroom at Detroit when the lid was put upon poolrooms; thence taken around the lake to Chicago where she was utilized for the same purpose, eluding the utmost vigilance of the officials, has now been purchased by H.M. Loud's Sons Co. at Au Sable, been rebuilt and converted into lumber carrier, in which service she will be more remunerative to her owner and a business more creditable than dodging the law.

For the past two years the boat has been a lumber carrier and previous to that time had been fitted up as a floating poolroom, operating near Detroit, but the scheme proved unsuccessful. Capt. George Recor of Detroit will be in command.
