Canadian-Australian Steamship Line

Canadian-Australian Steamship Line.

The establishment of the Canadian-Australian Steamship Company has been of incalculable benefit in working up reciprocal and increasing trade between Canada and the Australasian Colonies, in which New Zealand is participating.

My attention was directed to the limited cold-storage capacity on the steamers "Miowera," "Aorangi," and "Warrimoo," now in the trade. This I represented to the company at Vancouver, and I was informed that instructions had already been given to increase the cold-storage on the "Aorangi" from 2,500 to 7,000 carcases. It is also confidently expected that a better class of steamers will soon replace the present fleet.
