Affects Lake Steamers - Rochester, N.Y., May 20th - The effects of the coal strike are being felt seriously by the steamship captains on Lake Ontario, the situation becoming more critical hourly, and many lake sailors say that unless the strike is broken in a few days steam transportation on the lakes will be practically at a standstill. There are a large number of steamers, many of which never before have put into this port, now lying in Charlotte harbor waiting to be coaled. The coal supply at Oswego is exhausted, and the chutes of the Delaware, Lackawanna & Western railway company are all boarded and nailed up in readiness for a long strike. The statement is made that the coal supply at Charlotte is practically exhausted.
