Buffalo, March 30 - The sensation of the week in marine circles is the withdrawal of the Lackawanna line from the lake trade. This move was not thought of here last week and it had been announced as late as Thursday that the line would without doubt be made up as last season, from the LACKAWANNA and SCRANTON, which had been built for the line, and the leased boats AMERICA, BRAZIL and GOULD. During the meetings of the lake dine managers with the trunk lines in New York last week, it was given out that President Truesdale of the Lackawanna railroad did not want the lake line kept up, as it had never made any money and was more in arrears last season than ever. It was then arranged that the Anchor line should carry the Lackawanna freight, the line office being kept as before. The boats, LACKAWANNA and SCRANTON, have been turned over to Capt. M.M. Drake. who will probably put them into the ore trade. He had previously chartered the RUSSIA of the line, together with the CUBA of the Mills interest, for the Lackawanna-Green Bay line, which he will keep up as usual.
