The gathering of representatives of the railway and steamboat companies running services between New York and Montreal in Canada met in Burlington, Vermont to set and confirm schedules. Service on Lake Champlaign, for example, was set to begin immediately, organized to meet trains from Ogdenburgh and Montreal at one end and Troy, Albany, and New York at the other. (By John Osborne)
