Annual Meeting

The annual meeting of the stockholders of the Bay of Quinte and Oswego Navigation Company was held at the office of Downey & Pope, on Wednesday last, and was largely attended.

The report of Mr. R. Downey, managing director and treasurer, was brought before the meeting, and unanimously approved of.

It was decided to fit out the Kincardine and Oswego Belle in first-class style in every respect, and place them on the Oswego route the coming season.

A vote of thanks was passed to Mr. Downey for the able manner in which he had managed the affairs of the Company and the judgement and taste displayed by him in the fitting out of the new steamer Oswego Belle.

The following named gentlemen were chosen directors for the ensuing year: C. Allison, of Oswego; E.W. Rathbun, of Mill Point; R. Downey and W.S. Williams, of Napanee; W.H. Campbell and Geo. H. Pope, of Belleville, and Mr. Simpson, of St. Catharines.

At a subsequent meeting of the directors Mr. E.W. Rathbun was re-elected President, Mr. C. Allison, Vice-President, and Mr. R. Downey, Managing Director and Treasurer.

A cordial vote of thanks was tendered to the President for the able manner in which he had presided over the deliberations of the Board and the interest taken by him in the prosperity of the Company. The Board then adjourned to meet in Napanee in March.
