The Canadian Pacific Railway haslately acquired possession of fourteensteamships belonging to the Elder-Demster Line, the aggregate deadweight tonnage of which amountsto about 130,000 tons. It is believedthat about $8,000,000 was the purchaseprice. These vessels will be used largelyin the North Atlantic trade.
