The little prop. ARUNDELL has been repaired and painted up, and is in fine condition for the new season's work. When this craft first came out, it is currently said she made $49,000 clear during the first 13 months of her exsistence, more than paying for herself. That was on the route between Bay City and Alpena. For a while her owners, Holt & Cole of this city, coined money with her, but when the Detroit, Bay City & Alpena Railroad was built and in operation the coining stopped. When the patronage of the little steamer fell off to the extent that she failed to make her salt her owners took her off and sent her elsewhere. It is any wonder, then, that no love is lost between the vessel owners and the railroads? - Detroit Free Press.
