The Intercolonial Railway will have this year a first-class service.
From the 1st of July next, two luxurious trains will leave Montreal every day, except Saturday, for Sydney and Halifax.
The maritime express, which under present arrangements, leaves at noon, will steam out at eight o'clock in the morning. As for the additional train, the Ocean Limited, it will leave at eight o'clock in the evening and reach its destination within twenty-four hours. The latter service will, no doubt, be very well received by the travelling public. The trip will be shorter, as the night train does not stop at all stations. Besides, passengers will for the first time view in broad day-light the magnificent scenery of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia.
Numerous visitors are expected this year. However, it is possible that the St. Louis exhibition and the presidential election may divert from the maritime provinces a goodly
proportloin of the tourists who visited them last year.
By this announcement we are told that there will be every day two express trains leaving Montreal, one in the morning and one in the evening, except on Saturday. I would like to know the reason why, if two trains are to leave Montreal on the Intercolonial Railway every day, we are not to have a service in our district on Saturday.
