p.2 Police Court - Three young men from Montreal were brought to the police station this morning by Capt. Farrell, charged with having got on board the Corinthian at Toronto and swindled the Navigation Company out of their fare. Capt. Farrell tied them up with tarred ropes, which left their marks on their arms and legs. The Mayor, who is a tender-hearted Irishman, was overcome by the tale of their sufferings and on their promise of better behaviour in future discharged them.
