Milwaukee, Wis., Dec. 24.- As an outcome of the grain blockade at Buffalo, suit has been instituted by the Wolf & Davidson Steamship Company against the St. Paul, Minneapolis & Sault Ste. Marie Railway Company to recover in the neighborhood of $4,000 for demurrage and incidental expenses incurred through delay in the delivery of grain cargoes of the steamers FRED PABST and THOMAS DAVIDSON. The grain was shipped from Gladstone to Buffalo on a through rate to the seaboard made by the railway company, and consigned to elevators at the last named port which were unable to handle it promptly when the steamers arrived. Com. Wolf preferred proceeding against the railway company to attaching the grain in the elevator at Buffalo, and has placed an embargo upon a sum of money remaining in the hands of agents of the railway people here, which amounts to considerably more than the steamship company's claim.
