Dictator (Propeller), U6208, 15 Apr 1868
- Full Text
The Belle City Propeller Line, 1868 - This line will comprise 4 screw steamers, viz: the DICTATOR, NEPTUNE, CONGRESS, and another boat which will form a tri-weekly line between Buffalo and Racine during the coming navigation season. At Racine close connection will be made with the Western Union Railroad, which affords a short cheap and direct route to Southern and Western Wisconsin, Northern Illinois, Minnesota and Upper Mississippi River. One of the boats of this line will, during the season of navigation, leave the foot of Main St. every Tuesday and Friday
evening, where freight will be received for all points west. T.M. Moore, No. 1, Main St. is the Buffalo agent for this line.
His large experience in the transportation business on the lakes, and his deserved popularity as a genial courteous gentleman, is alone enough to make the Belle City Line a favorite with the public.
