Will Ply Between Salonica and Haifa

A Jewish navigation company to ply steamers between this port and Haifa, Palestine, was formed here today under the name of The Palestine Navigation Company. The firm already has four 18,000-ton steamers and has acquired the services of Jewish captains formerly employed by German marine companies. The steamers, which will be manned entirely by Jewish personnel, will take three days for the trip from Salonica to Haifa.

The new company expects to secure trade from immigrants going to Palestine by way of Salonica.
