THE Great Lakes route is the route of history. Five
years before the Pilgrim Fathers landed at Plymouth
Rock, Samuel Champlain—having reached Georgian
Bay from the St. Lawrence river by what nowadays would be
called the "air-line" via the Ottawa River, Lake Nipissing,and
French River—began the exploration of Lake Huron. Fourteen years after the same fateful event, Jean Nicollet of Cherbourg in France paddled through the Strait of Michilimackinac into Lake Michigan. The story goes that he attired himself in an embroidered robe of Chinese damask, because he
thought he was nearing China.
Later, the dauntless Father Marquette struck through the
gap, dipped south to camp on the site of the present Chicago,
and returned in 1668 to start a mission at Sault Sainte Marie,
close to the site of the present canal; Later again La Salle, the
most famous and intrepid of them all, built his Griffon, the
first ship to spread canvas on the Great Lakes—some sixty
tons in displacement, admired and dreaded by the Indians for
its huge, billowing sails, but lost on its maiden voyage and
buried no one knows where.
From the time of the French-Canadian fur trader, with his
flotilla of birch-bark canoes, to the present era of grain-laden
whalebacks, the Great Lakes have been one of the main arteries
of mercantile communication between eastern and western
Canada. Down this broad highway floats every year by far the
greater part of Canada's huge wheat contribution to the feeding of the world. Down it, too, float flour, iron and lumber in
vast quantities; and in the opposite directions go coal and
those manufactured articles for which the west exchanges its
wheat with the east. Flags of two countries flutter to its
breezes; American and Canadian ships plough its waters to
each other's ports, and use each other's canals impartially and
without tolls.
(Printed in Canada)
But the Great Lakes have yet another interest. Situated
as they are in the heart of the continent—Port McNicoll, for
example, is almost a thousand miles by water from tidal influences^—they form inland oceans across which luxurious
modern steamships carry holiday-making passengers. Lake
Superior is the largest body of fresh water in the world. It is
over 350 miles long, 160 miles wide, with an area of 31,800
square miles and in places a depth of 600 feet. Lake Huron
has an area of 23,200 square miles.
Across these lakes the Canadian Pacific Railway maintains a summer tri-weekly steamship service that has every
fascination of ocean travel with none of its discomforts. This
journey across the Great Lakes offers, as a round trip complete
in itself, or as a break in an across-continent railway trip,
one of the most delightful excursions, full of the most agreeable recreations, and circumstanced by the most health-giving
qualities, that could be found anywhere.
The traveller has his choice of three sailings a week, two
from Port McNicoll and one from Owen Sound. The westbound route is across the Georgian Bay into Lake Huron,
past that lake's numerous islands, of which Manitoulin is the
largest, through the Soo Canal, and thence across Lake
Superior to Fort William and Port Arthur. The time occupied
in the journey is a little less than two days; and on the
eastbound journey there are similar sailings.
[Page   One] Great lakes Steamship Service
Leaving Toronto by Canadian
Pacific Railway, a rapid transfer is
made at the port to the steamer. The
atmosphere teems with memories as we
slip away. What would La Salle have
said to this splendid steamer, with its
broad decks, comfortable berths, and
unexcelled cuisine?
Sit on deck in the long throbbing
twilight. You are in the north here,
and you can read at nine o'clock at
night. You can watch the past slip by
in its canoe, dodging behind the dark L*
islands of Georgian Bay.
You can smell miles of water in the breeze, and miles of
northern lands beyond again. You can listen to the strange
cries of the wheeling birds, the lingering liquid lap of the waves
against the boat side, the sub-audible converse of the Cana-j
dian past. For it is over these great lakes that the names of
those hero explorers and missionaries who established New;
France are most profusely scattered—Joliet, Marquette, La
Salle, Hennepin, Radisson, Cadillac and the rest of that brave
But perhaps you are not so much interested in the pastor even in the future—as in the present. For such a mundane,
person there are diversions limited only by your own capacity.
There is the novelty of ship life and the comfort of luxurious
accommodation. There is the chumming up, the making of
new acquaintances, the deck conversations upon everything
under the sun, even the flirtations under the moon. There isj
either lounging in Sunny corners, or promenades on the upper
deck in the tang of the healthy lake breezes. At night there is
your choice of concert or card party, or—hastily clearing away j
the chairs^a dance in the verandah cafe. There is the pleasure of solicitous service and of an unsurpassed cuisine that
provides for ravenous appetites (for what makes even the
dyspeptic so hungry as sea breezes?) real ship's meals of the
real and famous marine excellence and quantity.
When you go back on deck in the morning the sun is there
before you, and the rollicking wind is tamed to a soft whistle
by the still, green banks of the St. Mary's River, gay with cottages. Soon you enter the St. Mary's Channel and reach |
Sault Ste Marie, otherwise and better known as the Soo,
identified with the far-famed canal that some years has a
larger traffic than either the Suez or Panama.
The original passageway was dug by the North-west Company,those jolly traders who carved a kingdom out of northern
[Page Two]
British Columbia and skinned the ancestors of every Canadian animal that
now wears fur. In 1797 they dredged
their baby canal. Its lock was 38 feet
long, 8 feet 9 inches wide, and had a lift
of 9 whole feet! Doubtless the Scotch
factor then carrying the sceptre in his
kitbag considered it an engineering
achievement to put beside the Pyramids. But today it's a little, lonesome
trout pond; and few there are that
find it.
In 1853 the Americans built their
first canal, with two tandem locks of
masonry each 350 feet long by 70 wide. But in 1888 they put
the thing in the scrap heap and built on its wreckage the
present 800-foot Poe Lock which had been preceded by the
515-foot Weitzel, both still in use.
Then Canada got busy. The Canadian Pacific Railway
was thundering westward. The plains were waking up. From
1888 to 1895 the engineers dug in at the Soo, with the result
that the world's finest 900-foot lock was opened, to the tune of
"The Maple Leaf Forever."
Then it was the turn of the States again, and a 1350-foot
lock was the outcome, with the fourth and biggest of the
family just through blasting itself out of the picturesque red
rock of the district. Altogether the two Governments have
spent $25,000,000 at the Soo, not counting this fourth lock.
The length of the Canadian canal is nearly 1J4 miles.
There is only one lock, 900 feet long, and the difference in
water levels between which it affords the means of rise is
eighteen feet. In the year 1920, 18,848 vessels passed through
the Canadian and American canals, with a net tonnage of
But here we are at last drawn up in front of the Canadian
lock. Canada pays no tolls to the States, nor does Uncle Sam
have to tip our lockmen, but we remain loyal and help to
swell the Canadian statistics!
What's that against the skyline, like black-barred skeleton
hands playing "Simon says Thumbs Up"? That's the Canadian Pacific Railway bascule bridge, if you want technicality.
Our boat is too heavy to get out of the water and climb over it,
and too tall to go under, so the bridge just splits accommodatingly in the middle, using its wonderful thousand-ton side-
weights, and up sails the cartback a hundred and sixty-eight
feet in the air. Truly a strange town, this Soo, where boats
walk upstairs in canal locks and bridges go jack-knifing against
Owen Sound Harbor

the horizon. It lies, too, in two countries
—one half of it in Ontario, Canada, and
the other in Michigan, U.S.A.
But it has a right to be an original town
if it wishes, since, besides having great
steel yards employing several thousand
men, it is the pulse of the wheat traffic.
See that weird boat yonder, like a whale
with its head and tail out of the water?
It's an Alice in Wonderland boat, so don't
laugh at its pulled-out proportions. It
carries a little machinery in one end and
a little crew in the other. In between—
which is anything from four to six hundred feet—it's just a series of grain bins,
tied together with steel. The whaleback
fleet, it is stated, can simultaneously move
eight million bushels of wheat in one
The traveller who has time at his disposal will find the
Algoma district, of which Sault Ste. Marie is the headquarters, a fascinating one. East, west and north of the city
stretches a vast forest noted for the excellence of its fishing,
hunting and camping. The labyrinth of islands near Desbarats, thirty miles from Sault Ste. Marie, provides wonderful scenery and every means of enjoyment known to campers.
The deeply indented shore-line of upper Lake Huron and
Manitoulin Island, with the towns of Bruce Mines, Thessalon,
Blind River, Little Current and Gore Bay as supply depots,
provide an unequalled playground for either the sportsman
or the summer idler. In the rapids of Sault Ste. Marie,
the rainbow trout is to be had by the angler whose skill is
cultivated, while the countless streams and small lakes of
the district abound in speckled trout, bass, pickerel, maskinonge and pike. Moose, red deer, caribou and bear are to be
found in the more secluded areas, and, with smaller game,
partridge, ducks and geese, prove an irresistible attraction
to sportsmen.
But now we're through the locks at Sault Ste Marie, and
we swing out into White Fish Bay. The winds of Superior
dance over the waves to us, the north shore fades into mystery,
and we're glad indeed to see the cups of hot bovril and the
plates of biscuits that the attentive stewards hand round for
our delectation. Superior is an appetite-generator of the first
magnitude, and we need the three upstairs as well as the
three downstairs meals that are provided. When the lunch
hour arrives it finds us half way to meet it, and whatever we
eat or don't eat, let's not forget the Lake Superior whitefish
that the cook declares follow along behind
the ship crying to come on board.
By afternoon we might as well be in
the middle of the Atlantic for all the land
we see. The old voyageurs hugged the
stern cliffs. We know the cliffs are there,
copper-filled, gemmed with oglorastrolites
and veined with silver. But we fling ourselves straight into the west with never
a smell of shore.
At four o'clock the deck drifts backward
to the verandah cafe.    All of us find ourselves under the awnings where the little
blue teapots circulate cheerfully  and  the
talk turns on how cool it is.    You may
have  yearned for Eden  clothes in  town;
here  on the lakes you  pull  your  sweater
out of your suitcase and revel in a breeze
that calls for a hairnet and two hatpins.
Dinner tonight—strange how mundane and appetiteful
we become in the air!—dinner is a joyful procession straight
through the menu, even with the sneaking remembrance that
somebody said there'd be more bovril at ten.
The next day, passing the magnificent Thunder Cape that
towers out across the water, we're at Fort William, Elevator-
town, that is to say. At Fort William and Port Arthur,
"Twin Cities" that touch each other, there are thirty of these
huge wheat banks, each looking like a collection of spent
shells from some giant mortar, triumphantly up-ended in the
service of mankind and the grain trade.
Wheat has the right of way. It is the aristocrat and yet
the unit of lake traffic. Collected at Western Canada's three
thousand elevators, it finds its way eventually, assembled,,
inspected, graded and standardized to the Twin Cities; and
as fast as possible each carload—anywhere from ten to
fifteen hundred bushels per box car—that is dumped into the
forty-six million bushel capacity terminals at Fort William
and Port Arthur is cleared out again in the holds of the
whalebacks. It is shipped variously to ports on the Georgian
Bay, on Lakes Erie and Ontario, to far-off Montreal via the
Welland and St. Lawrence canals, and to Buffalo.
The passenger who isn't interested in the cascading wheat
that runs into the hold through the long feed pipes, nor the
bags of flour that climb up out of the abyss of the elevator's
insides and romp down the chute, may go for a walk into
the town to see the collections of agates, amethysts, chrol-
astrolites and thomsonites with which the jewellery stores
fill their cases.   All of these stones are found in the district

in such profusion that only the finest
specimens pay for the cutting.
Fort William is an exceedingly
busy city. The new million-dollar coal
dock of the Canadian Pacific on the
McKellar River is one of the best
equipped structures of its kind on the
continent. The river has been dredged
out so that the largest freighters plying
the Great Lakes can have easy access
to the dock, which has a storage capacity of 800,000 tons of coal. The
machinery, operated by electricity, is
capable of unloading a ten-thousand-
ton freight steamer in ten hours, and
the coal can be transferred to cars for
shipment in equally fast time.   The city is also the terminus
of the western division of the Canadian Pacific Railway.
Nor will the history-hunter be disappointed in Fort
William. In 1804 a trading post of the Nor'westers was
located on the site of the present town, which was named in
1807 in honor of William McGillivray, a notable man of the
company. It became then what it is today, the coupling
pin between the hungry east and the plentiful west. In
those days the commodity of exchange was furs, and it was
at Fort William, that the Montreal mangeurs de lard turned I
back to their homes with full packs, and the trappers set out
again into the sunset. Today, fruit of the Okanagan comes
to Fort William, salmon from the Fraser, wheat, oats, barley
and flax from the vast plains. The grain cars reach Winnipeg,
and Winnipeg shoots them through to the twin ports at the
rate of one a minute every day for two straight months.
Within easy reach of Fort William by either rail or automobile road are the Kakabeka Falls, where the Kaministiquia
leaps from a height greater than that of Niagara. An automobile road has now been completed through to Duluth. If
time permits, a visit should be paid to Silver Island, a very
popular summer resort for Fort William people twenty miles
east in the Thunder Bay district. The shore-line is dotted by
hundreds of summer cottages, and a first-class boat service
is maintained between Fort William and the island.
The Twin Cities are the gateway to a vast area of almost
unexplored wilderness wherein the sportsman will find everything that his heart craves—some caribou, bear and red deer,
shooting in season, and trout fishing of the finest kind. Three
hours' railway journey will bring one to Nipigon, whose red
speckled trout are famous the world over for their size and
fighting qualities. Nipigon, 70 miles east of Fort William by
Canadian Pacific Railway, is the largest and clearest river
flowing into Lake Superior, 42 miles long, with numerous
lake-like expansions and surging rapids, and is the only outlet
[Page Six]
from Lake Nipigon, forty miles to the
north. The lake is nearly seventy
miles in length by about thirty-nine in
width, and because of its numerous and
deeply indented bays has a shore-line
of nearly 600 miles. It is the world's
greatest breeding ground of that king
of fish, the speckled trout. No more
enjoyable outing, no more thorough
excursion into the wilds, could be imagined than a fishing trip at Nipigon,
accompanied into the wilderness by
Indian guides.
From Fort Willian the main line of
the Canadian Pacific Railway is taken
to Winnipeg, a distance of 419 miles.
Convenient connections are made with the steamers, and
parlor cars are reserved on day trains and sleeping cars on
night trains for steamship passengers. Leaving Fort William,
the railway traverses a wild, broken region of primeval beauty,
with many rapids and lakes, but uncultivated. It is a country,
however, that is rich in mineral possibilities, with valuable
areas of timber and pulpwood. Kenora, about halfway to
Winnipeg, is a highly popular summer resort on Lake of the
Woods, which is dotted with hundreds of islands. Later, the
character of the country changes; the rocks and lumber give
place to the beginning of the great prairie region of western
Canada, and shortly afterwards Winnipeg is reached—the
Metropolis of the Prairies, the third largest city of Canada.

and Keewa tin. The last two, built on the Clyde, are amongst
the finest steamships plying the Great Lakes.

The Great Lakes steamships of the
Canadian Pacific Railway Company
were constructed to withstand voyage
across the Atlantic Ocean, four of them
having been built on the Clyde. The
latest additions to the fleet, the Assiniboia and Keewatin, are very much like
ocean liners, but with four decks—main,
awning, promenade and hurricane.
They stand far higher out of the water
for their size than the ordinary liner.
They each have accommodation for
300 passengers. Their gross tonnage is
3,880 tons, their principal dimensions
being: Length, 336 feet; breadth, 43
feet, 8 inches; depth, 26 feet, 6 inches.
They are divided into eight watertight
No ocean vessels, not even the best of the big liners, have
more luxurious accommodations than those provided on the
Keewatin and Assiniboia. Spacious decks, large and airy
cabins, a delightful ladies' ordinary, large and finely-fitted-up
smoking rooms and verandah cafe, where afternoon tea is
served, are features of these vessels. There is also a big dining
room on each vessel, capable of accommodating over 100 at
one sitting and equal in appearance to that of the ocean liner.
A number of the rooms are fitted with shower baths, and thus
heighten the effect of a floating hotel.
The passenger equipment is of the
most sumptuous character. The main
and upper decks are furnished for the
accommodation of 300 first-class passengers, fitted in the latest style with
patent folding berths, and aft of the
main entrance in each ship are five
cabins-de-luxe, panelled in mahogany,
maple and basswood, each with large
brass bedstead and folding sofa. The
drawing rooms are tastefully finished in
white enamel and gold, while the dining-rooms are framed in American
walnut with Circassian walnut panels.
The huge rectangular bevelled glass
windows, with large dome skylight
overhead, give excellent light and ventilation. The smoking rooms on the
after end of the deck-house are tastefully designed and framed
in light natural oak, with carved panels. The other equipment is of an equally elaborate and artistic character.
The ships are equipped with wireless telegraphic apparatus,
and, in fact, they may be said to be an advanced type of steamship for the Great Lakes service,while their superb finish and
up-to-date equipment has made them popular on this route
and a source of no little pride to the great transportation company to which they belong.
