The stm. ISLAND BELLE, which was built in Black Rock and has been running on the Grand Island route for several years, has been sold to a company in Portland, Maine, for a good figure in cash. Charlie Webb will go with her as engineer.
She will leave here today or tomorrow on her journey of 1,600 miles, going through the Welland Canal, along Lake Ontario, down the St. Lawrence River, through the Gulf and along the coast to Portland.
This is the third Buffalo excursion boat to go to Portland, the PILGRIM and VISION being the others.
