-The prop. California is now en route from Chicago to Montreal with a cargo of 18,000 bushels of corn, at the exceptionally low rate of 4 cents per bushel. This is the lowest through lake and river freight ever taken via the St. Lawrence route, and it is doubtful if Erie can go one lower. The lowest rate previously recorded from Chicago to Montreal was 5 cents per bushel on a propellor load of wheat.
