| HE Metagama, Melita and Minnedosa
are steamers carrying cabin and third
class, and were built to take care of a
growing demand for passages at a reasonable rate.
Numbers of passengers do not care to
travel second class on a steamer carrying three classes, owing to the dividing
line on the decks, the difference in food and service, and the
various other distinctions separating the first and second
class.
The   C.P.O.S.   gave   careful   consideration   to   the   best
type of boat to take care of the demand, with the result

that  the  Missanabie  and  Metagama  were  designed.    The
former was launched in 1914 and the latter in 1915.
Both steamers were taken over by the Government, and
the Missanabie was torpedoed off the coast of Ireland while
doing her "bit." Two other steamers, the S.S. Melita and
S.S. Minnedosa, were being built at the commencement of
the war and were completed in 1917 and 1918 respectively.
They were requisitioned for war purposes, but in 1919,
together with the S.S. Metagama, were handed back to the
C.P.O.S.  by  the  Government,  and  after  being  thoroughly

overhauled and reconditioned were placed on the Montreal-
Liverpool Service.
The Metagama is a steel twin-screw steamer of 12,420
tons, 500 feet long, 64 feet beam, with a depth of 38 feet.
The Melita and Minnedosa are steel triple-screw steamers
of 14,000 tons, 546 feet long, 67 feet beam, with a depth
of 46 feet from the bridge to keel. The engines of the
Melita and Minnedosa are a combination of turbine and
reciprocating, while those of the Metagama are reciprocating.

 ^HE comfort of passengers has been especially
studied in the equipment
of these ships. The public
rooms situated on the
upper promenade deck
are tastefully decorated,
and include a general
lounge, a drawing room
and writing room, and a
smoking room.
 Drawing Room on S.S. Metagama
CTTIE comment of those who have travelled on or have
seen the Metagama, Melita or Minnedosa is that they
are the finest one-class cabin ships on the Atlantic
Ocean. The high standard of equipment in these
steamers is typical of the policy of the Canadian
Pacific Ocean Services, Limited, which prefers not to
do anything unless it can do it well. One innovation
is the breaking away from the old hidebound traditions of naval architecture which insisted on making
the interior of a ship look like the interior of a ship
and nothing more. The interiors of the Metagama,
Melita and Minnedosa are furnished to look like a
home.

 ^HE cruiser stern is the most characteristic external feature.
This has proved such a success on the Empress of Russia and
Empress of Asia, of the Pacific Service, that it was adopted for
the Metagama, Melita and Minnedosa. It provides more room
on the various decks and steadies the ship in a rolling sea.
In addition to the Melita, Minnedosa and Metagama, the C.P.O.S.
cabin fleet consists of the Victorian, Corsican, Scandinavian, Scotian,
Tunisian, Sicilian, Pretorian and Grampian, ranging from 7,000 to 12,100
tons, operating to Liverpool, Glasgow, London, Southampton, Havre and
Antwerp, and the same popular service is maintained as that on the
Melita, Minnedosa and Metagama.
The Montcalm, 16,200 tons, 566 feet long, 70 feet broad, a new addition to the fleet, has been launched, and will be placed in the Montreal-
Liverpool service as soon as completed.
A service carrying three classes of passengers is maintained by the
Empress of France and Empress of Britain, sailing from Quebec in summer
and St. John in winter.
The C.P.O.S. also maintains a Trans-Pacific service from Vancouver
via Victoria to Yokohama, Kobe, Moji, Nagasaki, Shanghai, Manila and
Hong Kong. The steamers Empress of Russia and Empress of Asia,
16,850 tons, make the quickest time across the Pacific. Other steamers
in the service are the Empress of Japan and Monteagle.
A new steamer, the Empress of Canada, 22,000 tons, has been launched
and will be placed in the Trans-Pacific service when completed.
