MONDAY, JUNE 20, 1910. Hougkton Department TELEPHONE SOUTH 19i CHICAGO COMMERCIAL CREW CAPTURES COPPER COUNTRY Beautiful Boat Brings Business Boosters to Besiege Pros pective Buyers. MAKE HIT WITH CUSTOMERS The beautiful steamer Theodore ' Roosevelt, bearing the half hundred en ergetic business men of the trade ex tension committee of the Chicago As sociation of Commerce, quietly slipped down Portage lake at the hour of mid. night Saturday and continued Us homeward trip after treating about two thousand copper country people to o most enjoyable moonlight excursion out into Luke Superior at the upper end of the Portage lake ship canal. Since 9 o'clock In the morning the boat had been in or near this port but the boosters who came with her spent lit tle time about the craft until the time set for the evening trip, utilizing ev ery minute nt their disposal for the purpose of meeting the merchants of the towns of the copper country, shak. lng hands with them, telling them sto ries and saying nice things about their towns, their scenery, their stores and the stocks therein and, sometimes, mentioning Chicago. Those who had tho pleasure of mak ing the trip out Into the lake in the evening were a fortunate, and admitted It. there being many expressions of gladness forthcoming from these dur ing nnd after the trip. On the freight deck of the boat there was music by an orchestra composed of players from the famous Theodore Thomas orches tra to which those who wished might dance. As the dancing space was lim lted. tb room was emptied occasional ly and others permitted to dance a few times. On another part of the deck una h -mrhjinlcnl department of the Daily Log. the newspaper pub lished aboard the boat, while the "of flee of publication" was in tho ladies' cabin on an upper deck. In the main cabin a Vlctrola furnished all kinds of music from grand opera to ragtime and this department was well patron ized. The wireless station wns anoth er object of great Interest and there were other amusements in various parts of the big craft.' After n cruise of nearly three hours duration, the boat again approached the dock In Houghton while the calliope played many tunes nnd a number of explod ing bombs were flred. causing the hiUs on cither side of the lake to reverberate the Bound. While the local people had passed a most enjoyable evening at tho "hand of their Chicago hosts, these same hosts declared that the evening trip was among the most enjoyable that they have had since they left their own town on this cruise a week ago. Many of them declared they were sorry ' that they had not so planned their Itin erary as to enable them to lay ovvr In, this port for Sunday. Among those of the Junketers who would liked to have had a little more time here Is Oeorge C. Ebeling of Cage Rrothers & Co., who when interviewed by The Calumet News man aboard the boat said: "It has been a great privilege for us to have visited the copper county and seen for ourselves the progress which you have made during the last f-w yeirs. You have merchants whose stocks compare favorably with any of those In cities of greater size, great in dustries which offer employment for your citizens and a climate whose vir tue Is shown In the ho;ilth of your people. We regret that we have so short a time to spend with you and all of us feel the necessity of coming again when we shall be at liberty to spend the time necessary to become better acquainted with you." Another of the Chlcagoans who wa much Impressed with Houghton and the entire copper country is C R. Mil ler of Carson, pirle. Seott & Company. Mr. Miller Is one of the liveliest and most aggressive of the men aboard the Roosevelt. lie said: "ThI section seems not only blesed with innumerable natural resources, but without exception with splendid energetic and broad-minded citizens untiring In their efforts to co-operate In developing vat Industries. I am delighted at our splendid reception and am Indeed pleased that our mission Is so well understood. We shall never forget the.-e splendid people and the sT'lendld manner In which they have FORTAGE LAKE GIVES UP FLOATER THIS MORNING The badly decomposed body of Rar tholemew Harrington, nged til, was found iloatlng In Portage Lake, near the foot of Huron street Houghton, this morning and was removed to tho Kn Units morgue.
