Chippewa County News: Some of English nobility were aboard the Campana on her trip down last Sunday. Some of Queen Victoria's German relatives were passengers, and several of the smaller fry, like dukes, duchesses and lords. They were accompanied by a large retinue of servants. Their "royal 'i-nesses" didn't favor the News with a call, but the prince was duly welcomed by Editor Smith, who did the honors on the "canawl."
