HISTORIC PEERLESS SOLD.
Chicago, July 18. -- The sale at Marshall's sale yesterday of the old steamer PEERLESS, formerly the flagship of the Lake Michigan and Lake Superior Line, practically marks the end of the line which in years past was the only means of communication between Chicago and the copper district of Michigan. When the PEERLESS was built at Cleveland in 1872 she cost $125,000 and among lake vessels was all that her name indicated. Today she sold for $2,000. Louis B. Clarke of the Hibernian Bank, holding the mortgage against the fleet, bid her in.
