p.8 A Popular Start - The steamship Turbinia has been placed successfully upon the route from Hamilton and Toronto, to Lewiston, making a speedy trip across the lake. Besides being commodious, and the fastest boat on these waters, she has been elegantly fitted up, and can take even a great crowd with comfort. The manager, Alfred Goodearle, is making an undoubted success of his mission to turn the ill-luck of the boat in the earning line into prosperity. The managers of the rival Niagara lines are Kingstonians.
