R. & O. TOURIST TRAFFIC

[Montreal Gazette]

C.J. Smith, general manager of the Richelieu & Ontario Navigation company, has returned from a visit to the west, and says the prospects for the summer tourist season are excellent. The daily service between Toronto and Montreal, via the rapids, has opened and the boats on the line, the Kingston and Toronto, of recent construction, are very popular with American tourists and Canadian travellers. Mr. Smith states that during the past winter the R. & O. added some forty additional staterooms to the Toronto, and changed the location of her dining room forward to the main deck. The dining-room of the Toronto is now the same size as that of her sister steamer, the Kingston. The steamers are met daily at Prescott by the rapids steamers Prescott and Brockville, giving through connection from Toronto to Montreal down the rapids. The boats reach Montreal in time for connections to be made with the Quebec and Saguenay boats.

With a splendid fleet of steamers in their service the Richelieu & Ontario Navigation company is looking forward to a busy season of travel, and Mr. Smith adds that not only is it expected that the American tourist business will be heavy, but the number of Canadians who will this season patronize the scenic route from Niagara to the sea will show a large increase.
