      New Management Buys SOO CITY
      A new company has been organized under the charter of Georgian Bay Navigation Company which will operate the steamer SOO CITY this year. The sale of the vessel was made on Friday and the new management has taken charge of the vessel and will rent her and put her in shape to go on due notice about the first of June. The vessel will be in command of Capt. Wm. Curry who was mate of her last year, and will make two trips a week from Owen Sound touching at the ports along the south shore of the Manitoulin Island, also Meaford, Thornbury and Collingwood. It is the intention to run a Saturday night trip to Parry Sound and Byng Inlet in addition to the regular sailings. Several of the residents of Providence Bay, Lion's Head, Owen Sound, Thornbury and other Georgian Bay ports are interested and have stock in the company.
      Capt. Curry who has also an interest in the boat is a well known and popular mariner, who enjoys in a large measure the confidence of the public.
