The SIMCOE. -- This new steamer built here during this winteris nearly completed. She appears strong and fully able to weather the storms of the upper lakes. The building of this steamer has given employment to a large number of our citizens at a time when employment is not generally plentiful. The Georgian Bay Transportation Co. deserves the thanks of the people of Collingwood.
