Organization of the Great Lakes Transit Company, to control 85 per cent of the passenger, packet, freight, and grain steamships navigating the Great Lakes, is announced. The company's fleet will comprise thirty-five vessels with a freight capacity of 150,000 tons. They are steamers that six railroad companies were compelled to relinquish, under the section of the Panama Canal act forbidding rail lines to own competing water routes. The capitalization of the company, it is announced, will be $20,000,000. The ships purchased by the company include all except six of those which have been operated on the lakes by the Pennsylvania, New York Central, Erie, Delaware & Lackawanna, Lehigh Valley, and Rutland Railroads. The history of lake navigation in connection with trunk railroads dates back to 1852, when the Erie started a line of steamships from Cleveland to Toledo, Ohio, Detroit, Mich., and Dunkirk, N. Y.
