p.1 New Freight Line A Go - Windsor, Feb. 25th - It is definitely announced that the new Fort William package freight line is a go, and the steamers that are to form it are the Eber Ward, John M. Nicol, and the old Anchor liner Juanita, which has been renamed the Winnipeg. The eastern terminal will be at Buffalo, and stops will be at Cleveland, and perhaps on two other Lake Erie ports, before Detroit is reached. It will be impossible to stop at Canadian way ports, the tariff regulations forbidding it, so the course will be direct to Fort William, from the Soo river.
