As the marine editor of the Detroit Free Press seems to be so well posted about the steamer SUSQUEHANNA's engines not working well, claiming that they will be rebuilt at Detroit this winter, he may also be able to explain why she has sailed for Chicago to go into winter quarters there.

The Detroit Free Press persists in claiming that the steamer SUSQUEHANNA's engines will be rebuilt during the coming winter, while Buffalo people, who are in a position to know, claim that the boat is doing good work and that her engines will not be rebuilt. It is difficult to understand the reason for such a claim in Detroit when no authority is given for it.
