What It Means - The masters of vessels in the Chicago and Lake Ontario trade, and the owners of these vessels, are wondering what the prosecution of Superintendent Bodwell, of the Welland Canal, means, all testifying to the fact that there was never a man in that position before him who did half so well as Mr. Bodwell did. Well, we will tell them. Mr. Bodwell was appointed by the last Administration, and the party at present in power want some excuse to remove Mr. Bodwell. [Chicago Inter-Ocean]
