Early Opening of Navigation

Chicago, March 3.--The first boat to reach Chicago from the east shore of Lake Michigan this spring was the Edward Buckley, which has just arrived from Manistee. She has a cargo of 1,000 tons of salt.

It is said the early opening of navigation at Chicago is due to the efforts of the salt combination in getting its product to the market promptly. The Buckley reported but little trouble in getting through the ice.
