Marine City, June 10. -- The new steamer ALVIN CHISHOLM, which was launched at Anderson's ship yard at Marine City, Mich., Saturday, will go to work on the contract for the government piers at Kelly's island as soon as she is completed. She was ordered by John Corrigan, of Cleveland, last fall and he sold her while on the stocks to the Kelly Island Lime Company. She will be commanded by capt. Dan henderson. The steamer measures 152 feet keel, 165 feet over all, 35 feet beam and 9 feet depth of hold. The propelling power is gained from twin screws and the steamer has the largest sand pump on the lakes, with the latest machinery and an electric light plant.
