p.6 Purchases Interest In Beatty Line - Toronto, April 4th - James Scott, president of the Northern navigation company, announced tonight that the company had purchased a controlling interest in the Beatty line of Sarnia, and that the vessels of this line will be hereafter operated as a part of the northern system, which, with the exception of the C.P.R. steamships out of Owen Sound, is the only line operating from Georgian bay and Lake Huron ports on the Canadian side. In an interview, Mr. Scott said the trade was but in its infancy and developments would be very rapid. Plans were in preparation for a new steamer to be built on the Georgian bay, and would be ready in a few days. At least two new steamers he considered would be required in the near future.
