THE GREAT LAUNCH - The Collingwood `Messenger' gets off the following:- "We notice by the `Times' that the people of Owen Sound took a temporary fit of lunacy over the launching of the steamer MANITOULIN last week, The day was proclaimed a holiday, business men wended their way towards the Dry Dock turning hand springs, and hundreds of country people came in to see the "fun". It don't take much to excite those Owen Sound people. Here in Collingwood, the Georgian Bay Transportation Company have about completed a large steamer for the Chicago trade and we say very little about it, but then, they are not used to these things in Owen Sound."
      Wiarton Echo
