The cabin and partitions on the main deck will be removed to furnish additional space on the upper and lower decks. A railing will be placed around the hurricane deck. Several thousand dollars will be expended. The Unique has been a success. Since her first trip, June 24th, 22,000 passengers have been carried, a daily average of about 400. [Ogdensburg Journal]
