Brings Six People's Voyage To Sudden End.

Detroit, Sept. 17th - A Chicago despatch says: "The lack of reciprocity arrangements between the American and Canadian governments, in regard to shipping on the great lakes, has brought to a sudden termination the voyage of six passengers on the Canadian steamer Arabian. Rather than put the owners to the expense of the inspection necessary to allow the vessel to carry passengers out of an American port, the people decided to return to their homes by rail. In the past, American vessels, regularly inspected at their home ports, were allowed to carry passengers to any port on the lakes, but in 1898 a Canadian law was passed decreeing that an American steamer carrying passengers to or from a Canadian port, must pass a Canadian inspection, in addtion to that received at home. In retaliation, the Washington government adopted a similar rule, and the Arabian now receives a dose of the medicine prepared in Canada.
