Capt. Green, of the prop. Lake Michigan, in port, hailing from Toledo, claims to be the victim of international jealousy. He ran into the harbour of Toledo on Monday, with colors flying, and proudly blowing his steam whistle. Upon landing he was arrested by an Irish policeman for violating the steam-whistle ordinance.
