      The New Boat CHIPPEWA Made Her First Trip Across Lake Ontaro Yesterday.

      The new steamboat CHIPPEWA, one of the finest boats, if not the finest, on the Great Lakes, made her first appearance at Lewiston yesterday morning. Shewas hailed with enthusiasm and inspected by the people of the village with great curiosity and admiration.
      She is a sidewheeler of trim and stately lines, and is expected to prove a fast traveler. She is 311 feet long, or 90 feet longer than the CHICORA. She was built at Hamilton, Ont.
      The CHIPPEWA will hereafter make regular trips across the lake to Toronto in connection with the CHICORA and CIBOLA of the Niagara Navigation Company.

      Niagara Falls, Aug, 5. - The fastest time ever made on water between Toronto and Lewiston was accomplished this week by the Niagara Navigation Company's new side-wheel steamer CHIPPEWA. She made the run, a distance of 40 miles in 2:15, including one stop. The average speed of the boat was 20 milea an hour, and it is expected that this record will be broken before the season is over.
