p.2 Police Court - A number of French Canadian bargemen were summoned to appear before the court this afternoon on complaint of Mr. Stewart, for refusing to work in port on other barges belonging to the same firm (J.H. Henderson & Co.) than those on which they were regularly employed. The difficulty was settled almost as soon as the case was stated to the magistrate, the men expressing their willingness to go to work, and Mr. Stewart accepting their promises and declining to proceed further. The men seemed to have a wholesome horror of the police court.
