      Milwaukee, Wis., Jan. 7 - Of the intentions of the St. Joseph and Lake Michigan Transportation Company, mentioned in the Marine Review last week, it may be said that Hon. Frank W. Wheeler, during a visit to St. Joseph a week or so ago, intimated that the steamer LORA would probably be run to Chicago and the OSSIFRAGE to Milwaukee, out of that port, in the freight and passenger trade. The LORA is being supplied with a fore-and-aft compound engine and is also having her accommodations for passengers improved, while thirty feet are to be added to the length of the OSSIFRAGE. Should Mr. Wheeler's scheme be carried out, Milwaukee will have two lines of steamers to St. Joseph next season, while still another line from Milwaukee to Michigan City is in embryo, with every prospect of it being established. It remains to be stated that the St. Joseph and Lake Michigan Transportation Company will be operated principally in connection with the Vandalia railway line out of Chicago.
