Ashland, June 8. - The steamer CHEQUAMEGON, of Ashland, now running between Milwaukee and White Fish bay, will leave for Los Angeles the latter part of this month. Besides the owner, Louis Cartier, a few invited guests will take the trip. Coaling stations have been picked out on the South American coasts, and the expenses of the trip are figured at $800.
The CHEQUAMEGON was built at Manitowoc in 1893 for service between Ashland and the Apostle Islands. She is 101 feet long and 22 feet beam. After reaching southern California the CHEQUAMEGON will run to the Catalina Islands. Her long trip around Cape Horn will be watched with great interest.
