Description
Full Text

The magnificent floating palace METROPOLIS, came in today, Thursday, at 12:10, thus making a trip in 14 hours and 10 minutes. But this time is made on the score of economy, because Capt. Pheatt has a regard for the Company's coal. The METROPOLIS is allowed to carry 50 lbs. of steam, which it is granted she can always do safely; but she only uses about 30, rather under than over. Captain Pheatt says that he can just as well be here every day at 11:00 as at 12 only it is a little more economical to run the boat slow. She brought in today some 80 or 90 passengers. - Toledo Blade.
