The Lakeside Navigation Co. has been unable to handle all the business which came their way part of the season, so popular has the St. Catharines route become. Next season they will be prepared for a big increase. It is their intention to build a new steel vessel after the model of the LAKESIDE, at a cost of between $35,000 and $40,000. She will be 165 ft. long, and thoroughly modern in all appointments. The contract has not been let yet, but estimates are being prepared, and she will likely be built either in Toronto or Hamilton. It is intended to make a vessel capable of going 17 miles per hour, and that she will be ready to go into commission on the 24th of May. The stm. LINCOLN will be taken off the route as she is too small, and the LAKESIDE will be lengthened 25 ft. making her the same size as the new boat.
