The City of Evanston, although located on the shores of Lake Michigan, has for the first time an enrolled vessel claiming it for a port of hail. The steam yacht OLLIE was yesterday transferred at the Custom-House from J.H. Jackson to C.W. Hawthorne of Evanston. The consideration was $900. This yacht, which is to claim the peaceful town of Evanston for its home port, has had rather an exciting life on the lakes. The OLLIE was brought up from salt water in 1893, and was sunk by collision with the steam yacht VOLANTA, off the foot of Randolph Street. It was raised and finally purchased by George Warrington, who sailed it for several years.
