[Montreal Star]

The Richelieu and Ontario Navigation Company have purchased the steamer Prince Arthur from the Rome and Watertown R.R., and will run her every Monday morning from Kingston upon the arrival of the C.P.R. and G.T.R. trains through to Montreal, calling at Clayton and all the Canadian ports. This will give an every day service through the Thousand Islands to the city.

Mr. F.E. Gilman, who was vice-president of the St. Lawrence Steamboat Company, was asked this morning if they had given up the St. Lawrence route entirely to their rivals, the R. & O. "Not by any means," he replied, "we can't run Canadian bottoms and carry American passengers between their ports owing to the retaliatory legislation passed by Congress a few days ago, and which is meant as a hit at Canada for her seizure of American fishing vessels, but we are building three steamers at Charlotte. These will be American bottoms and will be able to touch at all the American as well as Canadian ports. The boats are being built by a large railroad company, but they will not be ready for this season's business.
