WANT TOO MUCH WATER
CHICAGO PEOPLE WOULD LOWER PRESENT LAKE LEVELS
President Livingstone, of the Lake Carriers Association, will be present today at a meeting of the International Deep Waterways commission at Buffalo. One of the principal questions to be discussed will be that of the Chicago drainage cut, which is proposed to be made available as a navigation canal.
The Lake Carriers are opposed to this proposition, and president Livingston will again so state to the commission.
"We are willing that the city of Chicago should have all the water necessary for health and sanitary purposes," said Mr. Livingstone, "but to make a navigation canal in the drainage cut would materially reduce the lake level, and this plan we shall oppose."
