 Princess beloved
by people of Crete
f<i/**<* /7a&£
Many ships have a way of
winning the affections of those
who travel in them regularly,
and this could be said particularly of the CPR Princesses
that plied our coastal routes for
many years.
During her long career on this
coast, notably on the Prince
Rupert run and the night run to
Victoria, the Princess Adelaide
was a steady reliable ship that
won many friends. She was sold
to Greek owners in 1949, and
since then has built up the same
degree of affection that she won
f\m B.C.
For 16 years she ran on the
regular run between Piraeus,
Greece, and the island of Crete,
being the principal mail and
passenger vessel on the run. She
was recently retired from this
service, which evoked a sentimental burst of affection from
the people of Crete.
Her present owners, Typaldos
Brothers Steamship Co. Ltd. of
Piraeus, recently sent' a translation of a letter which appeared
in the Candia, Crete, newspaper, to Harry Tyson, marine
superintendent of the CPR coast
service here, bearing a tribute
to the Princess Adelaide, or
Angelika, as she was renamed
in Greece.
The letter says in part:
"When a ship serves an island
for 16 years, ready to take
people wherever their business
or their needs call them, then
this ship becomes an inseparable part of the island she has
so faithfully and successfully
'Nothing has ever contributed
more to the development of
tourism in Crete than the heavy
| and tireless engines of -poorj;
Angelika, that has bid us a
discreet farewell, without fuss
or tears, after having conscientiously worked with us,
shared our troubles, heard our
heart-beats, known our love, as
we got to know her warmth and
"The Angelika had a heart
and soul, full of life, the ageless
md free  and  heavy  heart  of
rete itself, which would never
accept the yoke of bondage. She
was a part of our island, and
she served the island faithfully.
"And Crete loved Angelika so
much, that should the island be
transformed for one minute to a
flesh-and-blood   mermaid,   and
raise herself in the middle of
the white foaming sea, her first
and only question would be:
'Where is my Angelika? What's
happened to her?'
"The Angelika must be
honored. Let the authorities find
the way."
After that touching tribute to
the old Princess Adelaide, it is
pleasant to report that the 55-
year-old ship still has a few
years of life in her, and is now
sailing in intercoastal voyages
between the Greek island for
Typaldos Brothers.

and Prank Reynolds were absent when the picture was
A trip to the capital city earlier in the year attracted
a total of 170 carriers and was enjoyed by the boys to
such an extent that a second trip was arranged. The
Dominion Hotel, which last year housed the party,
was headquarters again this yearo During the two
days the boys were in Victoria, they visited the Parliament Buildings and Museum and took a sightseeing
tour in and around* the city. The workings of the
largest telescope in the British Empire were explained
by Mr. W. Pierce of the observatory staff, and an evening was spent at the Crystal Pool.
Three members of the circulation department staff,
Mr. C. K Henry, R. Howatson and R Pierrot, are in
charge of the party.

Later Skookum No. 2 of the Van**

the tug Lome of the Pacific (Coyle)
Navigation Co. Ltd. also went out.
The Princess -Adelaide was delayed
by fog fifteen minutes in her daily
departure this morning and did not
leave until 10:45 o'clock. She had a
light passenger list.
Many of the tugs which were
anchored in English Bay had tows of
logs and barges.
The fog, which is general on thV
Pacific Coast, has held up the movement of many vessels. In addition to
those waiting in English Bay to enter
port, there are several seeking a ehanca
to move. This condition exists at all
ports adjacent to the Gulf of Georgia.
The following inbound ships were in
English Bay at dawn awaiting clearer
weather: SS. Yomei Mam; fogbound
since Tuesday afternoon; SS. Ontario-
lite; ss. Regulus with South American
sugar; SS/ Vera Radcliffe for wheat:
SS. Hampholm for wheat; SS. Great

The weather forecasts promise no
relief from the present condition for
at least thirty-six hours. They state
that the- present low temperatures will
continue, with cloudiness and osca«

high, and cold, overcast skies will prevail throughout the province, according
to the predictions.

This photograph of the latest addition to the C. P. B.'s fine fleet of ferry steamers was taken yesterday
afternoon, a few hours before the vessel left on her maiden   trip  in  the  Victoria-Vancouver    service.
She arrives back here at six o'clock to-day.
Arrives Back Here at 6 o'Clock
—Cuts Considerable Time
Off the Schedule
Carrying- a full list of pessengers,
many of whom were prominent Victorians invited by officials-of the B. C.
Coast Service to make the inaugural
trip of the new steamer on the Victoria-Vancouver run, the palatial ac-
quition to the C. P. R. fleet, the Princess Adelaide, with Capt. Hunter,
formerly master of the Charmer in
command, left port last night at 11.45
o'clock on her first inter-city run to
the Terminal city, where she arrived
this morning at 6 o'clock.
The Adelaide represents the very last
word in construction and equipment,
and her accommodation and convenience for travelling are of the most up-
to-date type to be found on any vessel
of her class in the world. Her 118
staterooms were well filled last night
and the comfort provided the passen
gers in these commodious, well-lighted
and well-ventilated rooms met with
warm praise. For those who were un
fortunate in not securing berths they
reposed upon the soft chairs, lounges
and settees found in the spacious saloons, smoking and observation rooms. I
A feature of the new vessel which is
bound to prove popular with the great-,
er part of the travelling public is the
restaurant on the deck, in addition to
the elegant dining-room below. It is
fitted up as finely as any grill room on
land, while the dining-room is beautifully finished in walnut with gold fittings. At the after end of the promenade deck is the smoking room, which
is handsomely done in solid oak with
panels of ancient hammered brass, and
is probably the most artistic room on
the ship.
The new Princess made one of the
fastest night passages to Vancouver
that has been accomplished for some
time. She cut considerable time off
the performances of the boats that
have been on the run prior to her arrival. Although only built under contract to make seventeen knots, on her
trial trips she successfully reeled of 18
1-2 knots. The Adelaide is driven by a
single screw and is equipped with four
boilers 15 feet 3 inches in diameter by
12 feet long, with forced draught on
the closed stokehold system. Her engine is of the four-cylinder triple-expansion type, balanced on the Schlick-
Tweedy system. The cylinders are 27-
inch, 42-inch, 48 1-2-inch by 39-inch
stroke. The steam pressure is 180
pounds, and the auxiliaries, in the way
of pumps, heaters, etc., are of the verv
latest type. She is lighted throughout
by electricity, the dynamos being capable of furnishing current for 1,500
sixteen-candle-power lamps. The Adelaide is steam-heated throughout and
has a splendid system of ventilation.
She has also patent stockless anchors
and the latest type of winches.
Her dimensions are as follows:
Length of 290 feet between perpendiculars; beam of 46 feet and 17 feet
depth. She is constructed of steel with
cellular double bottom, seven transverse bulkheads, two watertight flats,
and is otherwise as nearly unsinkable
as possible. She has ample cargo ca-
pacicy for any of the C. P. R.'s local or
northern services, and is a very useful
addition to the fleet on the coast^
Many Speakers   at   Informal
Dinner Eulogize the Enterprise of C, Pi R,
teaching Victoria yesterday afternoon- at 5.30 o.'clock, the Princess Adelaide, Capt. Hunter, completed her first
round trip to Vancouver. On her return passage from the mainland the
steamer proved her neetness by making the run in four hours and a half,
a performance which has never been
equalled by any of the C. P. R. boats,
excepting the three funnel vessels.
She was not forced at any time during
the trip, and it is expected by Capt.
Troup, the energetic and indefatigable
manager of the B. C. coast service,
that when the newness of her machinery has worked off she will come close
to the four hour mark.
Although the engines were running
at 142 revolutions per minute, the
Adelaide was free from vibration of
any kind. Her powerful engines responded without a hitch 'to the will of
the engineers, and the ease with which
they discharged their duty was* a liberal , education to all who visited the
spacious and well equipped engine
room. Those in charge of the machinery are waiting the opportunity to
line up against the larger Princesses
and see just how much they are-lacking.  .
Prior to the departure of the steamer
on Tuesday night a dinner was served,
to which the guests of the C. P. R. on
the inaugural trip were invited. On
the return voyage, however, a much
more * elaborate dinner was held, over
wltich Capt. Troup presided, and many
little anecdotes of bygone and present
days were told by the guests.
Capt. Troup, on rising to entertain
the guests with one of his characteristic speeches, was loudly applauded.
He gave a brief review of his experiences since he entered the employ of
the C. P. N. until he had obtained his
present position as head of the B. C.
coast service. In 1885 he was engaged
by Capt. John Irving, then manager
of the old Canadian Navigation Company, to make a trip to Port Moody
for the purpose of meeting the first
train that came over the C. P. R. on
its completion. He was in command
of many river steamers in the early
days of the province and navigated
vessels to the north and to Vancouver.
Ten years ago he was appointed to
manage the B. C. coast service Rafter
the C. P. N. fleet had been purchased,
and from that time to now he had been
trying to bring the service up to the
highest pitch of excellence. His address was interspersed with many little humorous  stories  of his  career.
P. W. Peters, assistant to the second
vice-president, in his address dwelt on
the fact that Capt. Troup had impressed upon the C. P. R. the necessity of
providing such fine steamers as they
now possess for the coast routes. They
thought at first that the smaller vessels then operated were sufficient to
handle the traffic, but now they had
found where the foresight of Capt.
Troup has saved the company considerable. He further stated that the C.
P. R. had always attempted to meet
the requirements of the people of the
Pacific coast, and the service now
maintained was equal to that of any
other steamship company in the world.
H. W. Brodie, general passenger
agent* for the C, P. R., who arranged
the excursion, stated in his remarks
that the C. P. R. ferry fleet far sur
passed that of. the renowned Channel
fleet of steamers. The boats are larger,
more finely fitted up and speedier
than any of those operated between
Dover and Calais. More passengers
are carried between Victoria and Van
cbuver by the C. P. R. steamers than
by all the Channel steamers. He re
ferred to the three times a" day service which will be inaugurated with
the arrival of the sister ship to the
Adelaide  from  the   builders'   yards.
A well known pioneer of Victoria and
one who remembers the hardships and
trials the first steamers" on this coast
had to contend witn, C. E. Redfern,
made an interesting speech. He spoke
in laudable terms of the C. P. R., statp-"
ing that this great company now has
a fleet which stretches around the
world, and nowhere is there a fleet
which can compare with it. Probably
the best part of the fleet is on the Pacific, and- Victorians and Vancouver-
ites are securing the full benefit of it.
Among; the party who made the trip
were the following, including many
newspapermen: Capt. J. W. Troup,
manager of the B. C. coast service and
designer of the new steamer; F. W.
Peters, assistant to the second vice-
president of the C. P. R., "Winnipeg;
H. W. J3rodie, general passenger agent
of the C. P. R.; W. McGown, superintending engineer; P. W. Clendenning,
assistant general freight agent; I_. D.
Chetham, local passenger agent; C. H.
Bowes, assistant general passenger
agent at Vancouver; J. Jones, claims
agent; Capt. John Irving, formerly
commodore of the C. P. N. Co.; C. E.
Redfern, Holt, R. Dunn, manager of
the Times; W. Blakemore, editor of
the Week; Gordon Smith, Colonist; B.
