Items of Local Interest. The Cecelia Hill was laid up at Fish Creek last week, having stopped running on the 17th on account of the ice which bothered her a good deal during the last two trips, which was made with fish to Menominee. The season's business has been so satisfactory that the owners will make a number of needed improvements in and about the craft during the ensuing season of inactivity. It is possible that an entire new hull may be constructed to which to transfer the machinery. The Marquette, which is also the property of the Hill Bros., will continue to run on the Chicago-Kenosha route, having developed such a business that this is absolutely essential. She makes one round trip each day, the run including a stop at Waukegan. The distance between the points first named is 52 miles, and the traffic comprises freight altogether manufactured articles south and merchandise north. Capt. L. L. Hill is in command with Engineer Dan. McLennen at the after end of the craft. The route has been developed and worked up entirely by this craft, which has now been on that line for about a year.
