      A meeting of the stock holders of the Buffalo & Lake Erie Excursion Co, was called for Saturday afternoon and the following officers elected for the ensuing year.
      President - Howard H. Baker
      Secretary and Treasurer - Alex Cordes
      Executive Committee - Capt. M.M. Drake, Capt. Thomas Maytham, H.H. Baker.
      Directors R.R. Hefford, Capt. M.M. Drake, Capt. Thomas Maytham, H.H. Baker., Alex Cordes, Capt. Lyman Hunt, Capt. Walter Robinson and Capt. A.B. Drake.
      Some alterations on the PERIWINKLE for the convenience of passengers were proposed and adopted. The most important of these will be the addition of an upper deck, extending aft from the pilot house. The lifeboats will then be placed on this deck, thus giving the passengers unobstructed room on the main and promenade decks, and will also afford shelter from bad weather. Capt. A.B. Drake will command the vessel.
