Around the Great Lakes. The Cuthbert Shipbuilding Co. at South Chicago has petitioned the Illinois legislature for permission to erect a line of docks around the island at the foot of Ninety-second street. This island was a disused strip of sand in the Calumet river until the organization of the shipbuilding company last January. At that time a building, 120 by 30 feet was erected, and under its roof work was begun on the racing craft designed to compete for the Canadian cup in the races this summer. Yachtsmen believe that in the Veva, A. G. Cuthbert, designer, has placed in the water one of the fastest yachts of its class. The Cuthbert company will enlarge its plant and build racing and pleasure yachts on a more pretentious scale. For this more dock room is required. The Veva will make a trial trip for its owners, George H. Lytton, George R. Pierce and S. N. Smith, in the near future.
