p.3 Marine - Last week Chicago vessel owners held a meeting, with Geo. C. Finney as chairman, to devise some way by which vessels can be made to clear expenses. One plan proposed was to form an international board of vessel owners; a local board, and the employment of a disinterested man at each port to make charters. Another was permanent organization, with a penalty provision which should be vigorously enforced to maintain standard rates. It was decided to prepare a circular to distribute along the lakes.
