Full Text

At the plant of the Great Lakes Engineering Works at Port Huron, work on the new Gilchrist steamer GEORGE H. RUSSEL, is being pushed to completion with dispatch. It is hoped to get the RUSSEL ready in ten days, when she will go to Lake Superior for ore. The steamer HECKER, also building at this yard for the Gilchrist Company is getting along nicely, and will probably be ready to sail by the first of September.
