      Chicago Lake Interests - Never, perhaps, in the history of the package freight traffic has there been such a rush as at present. The loss to the Union Line by reason of the CHEMUNG losing her rudder will be most serious, as it will interfere with all the plans of handling its share of the great traffic. Some of the lines have been endeavoring to secure outside boats to carry package freight for the balance of the season, but they have not met with success. It is quite likely, however, that the Ogdensburg Transit Company's steamers, which are to winter here, will make a trip to Buffalo and return for some of the other lines, when the time is too short for a round trip to Ogdensburg.
