RICHELIEU DIRECTORS MEET.
A meeting of the directors of the Richelieu & Ontario navigation company was held this forenoon. As a result of the meeting it is understood that Julien Chabot, general manager of the company, will sever his connection with it at the end of the present week. Nothing definite has yet been arranged as to the appointment of a successor to Mr. Chabot, but as there are a number of applicants the place will soon be filled. It was finally decided to place the steamer Columbian to run in connection with the Niagara Falls electric railroad between Chippewa, Ont., and Buffalo, N.Y. As this road carried 120,000 passengers during four months of last year the company look for good results from the change. The Magnet as usual will run between Hamilton, Toronto and Montreal via the Bay of Quinte, both ways.
