Full Text

The Queen of the Lakes steamer United Empire of the Sarnia Line left the swift old steamer Spartan of the Owen Sound Line a long way astern coming up last trip. As the Empire was approaching Hilton, the Spartan was leaving again the same thing happened at Richards Landing. After landing her mails and freight the Empire proceeded to follow the old racer whose reputation for speed is pretty well known and it was soon observed that she was not match for the boat now in her wake, which carrying 60 pounds of steam soon left the famous steamer of other days far behind. The owners of the Beatty boats have strictly prohibited their captains from racing, otherwise the Owen Sounder might have been passed in one half the time. Score on for the Queen of the Lakes.
