One suit for demurrage has been commenced at Buffalo. Capt. James Davidson of West Bay City libeled the grain cargo of the steamer CITY OF PARIS, because his boat was not unloaded within five days after arrival in port. Some delay must, of course, be expected in handling Buffalo's big grain receipts from this time on, and it is difficult to collect demurrage under such circumstances, but it is certainly unfair to the vessel owner that railway elevators like the Erie and others should take more vessels than they can care for while other houses are idle.
