p.2 A Capable Manager - Capt. Craig was in Ogdensburg, N.Y., the other day arranging for an excursion here on May 24th. The steamer Columbian will bring up a large crowd on that date. Referring to him, the Ogdensburg News says: "Capt. T.J. Craig, of Kingston, was in the city with George H. Phillips, general travelling passenger agent of the R. & O. line here. Capt. Craig is now in charge of the company's Thousand Island business. He is a capable man and well qualified to handle his portion of the business." True words, every one of them. The captain says that the Canadian line is fully prepared to make things hum this season, and river traffic will undoubtedly be very lively.
