General Passenger Agent W. F. Herman of the Cleveland and Buffalo Transit Co., who has long been famous among railroad and steamship agents for the novelty and artistic excellence of his circulars and announcements of various kinds, has outdone former efforts in a neat little folder announcing a reduction in berth and stateroom rates between Cleveland eland and Buffalo. According to the new schedule, which will go into operation with the opening of the season, prices will be as follows: Outside rooms, $2; inside rooms, $1.75; parlors, $2.50 to $5; parlors with bath, $6; upper berths, 75 cents; lower berths, $1 to $1.25. The range of price varies according to location. During the season soon to open the company's steamers CITY OF ERIE and CITY OF BUFFALO, which are characterized in the circular the fastest, staunchest and throughout the best of any plying the waters of the great lakes," will leave Cleveland every evening at 8 P.M. central standard time and Buffalo at 9 P.M., eastern standard time, making the run of 183 miles in ten hours.
