SUPERIOR HEADS PORTS
Shows Greatest Volume of Traffic for Six Months
Milwaukee, Wis., August 30. - A report has been compiled by Harry Plumb, secretary of the Chamber of Commerce, showing the incoming and outgoing tonnage at the six principal lake ports for the first six months of the year.
Milwaukee stands fifth, the aggregate tonnage received and sent out being 2,634,492 tons. Superior leads with 5,214,051 tons; Duluth is second with 3,356,908 tons; Buffalo third with 3,085,955 tons; Chicago fourth with 2,933,740 tons, and Cleveland sixth with 2,442,132 tons. The lead by Superior and Duluth is accounted for by ore shipments.
When grain shipments are received and sent from Milwaukee this fall, it is expected that this port will take the lead for the remaining six months of the year.
