BADGER STATE'S NEW JOB
WILL ENGAGE IN LEGITMATE BUSINESS ONCE MORE
The steamer Badger State has been remeasured by Deputy Collector of Customs D. C. Brawn. This steamer, which was converted into a floating pool room at Detroit when the lid was put on pool rooms; thence taken to Chicago, where she was utilized for the same purpose, eluding the utmost vigilance of the officials, has now been purchased by H. M. Loud's Sons Co. at Au Sable, been rebuilt there and converted into lumber carrier, in which service she will be more remunerative to her owners and a business more creditable than dodging the law.
