The St. Lawrence Route.

Chicago, Oct. 13th - Two grain charters on the board of trade yesterday called attention to the great decline in the popularity of the Canadian route for exporting grain from this country. The charters were of the Vail and the Baltic, for corn to Prescott at six cents per bushel. They are the first boats since last spring to take grain from here for export via the St. Lawrence and Montreal. Once this great route did a fair proportion of the business, not only from Chicago, but from all upper lake ports. But for months shippers have not sent a single bushel of grain except that being carried by the regular Rutland line to Ogdensburg. The usual difference in the past in rates between Buffalo and Lake Ontario has been one and a quarter cents a bushel, but the difference in yesterday's charters is two and a half cents, indicating it was only because of the urgent need of shippers to get grain forwarded that these two boats were taken.

p.6 Damage In a Canal - Montreal, Oct. 13th - a washout occurred in the Beauharnois canal that will take several days to repair.
