      BUFFALO MEN GUESTS ON NEW STEAMER ROCHESTER
      A score of marine and railroad men from Buffalo journeyed to Charlotte yesterday afternoon and enjoyed an afternoon aboard the new steamer ROCHESTER as the guests of the Richelieu & Ontario Navigation Company. The purpose of the entertainment was to give the buffalonians and some 500 other guests, including many Rochester men, an opportunity of inspecting the ship, and they did so to their hearts' content. The ROCHESTER is the newest and most complete passenger boat on Lake Ontario. She is 256 feet over all, with 43 feet 3 inches beam and 9 feet 6 inches draft. She has 134 staterooms, all of the "outside" type. Her speed is 18 miles an hour. The ROCHESTER will run between Lewiston and Prescott, where she will deliver passengers to connect with the Rapids steamers for Montreal and Quebec. The Gorge Routs is running through cars from Niagara Falls to connect with the boat. Among the railroad men from Buffalo who enjoyed the ride on the ROCHESTER were: J.A. Fellows, division freight agent, Pennsylvania R. R. ; S.B. Newton, traveling passenger agent, Pennsylvania Railroad; John Condon, city passenger agent, Erie Railroad; John Edbauer of the Gorge Routs; James Martin, traveling passenger agent, New York Central; and J. Fitzpatrick of the Chicago & Alton.
