The Sloan and Cowles Excursion Co. is doing much to improve
the excursion boat accommodations at this port. As fast as
public patronage has warranted it, new boats have been added to
the fleet which plies to the various resorts on the river and
lake. The PURITAN is the "flag ship" of the fleet. She has 3
decks for passengers, and is fitted with water tight compartments
and twin screws, so that it is almost impossible for her to
become disabled. Other propellers in this fleet at the VISION,
ELDORADO and SLOAN; and there is also the sidewheelers SHREWSBURY
and WILLIAM HARRISON. The PILGRIM is now in drydock, and when
her repairs are completed she will be new from her main deck up.
It is expected that she will begin regular runs to Woodlawn
Beach. There is not a pleasure resort within easy reach of the
city by water to which one of the Sloan & Cowles boats does not
run. They may be chartered also for private parties and
