Boat Building at Chicago. A. G. Cuthbert has had a very successful season's work at his new yard on the island at the foot of Ninety-second street in South Chicago. Improvements have been made on the island in the way of putting in buildings and material for doing the work and a number of boats have been built, among them forty for the South Park and a great many punts and other boats for hunting and fishing purposes, as well as several yachts. He is at present engaged in laying up about two-thirds of the fleet of yachts that has been prominent in the basin at the mouth of the river all summer and has still more to bring down for the winter. Some have been run up on the marine railway and will lie on the island all winter, while the others will simply be stripped and anchored in the slip, lying there under the care of a watchman all winter. The prospects for a full run of work next year are very bright.
