A Strike - The schooner Annie Falconer loaded here on Friday, her crew were shipped at $1.35 per day. In the evening, with a tug alongside, and ready to depart, the crew demanded 25 cents extra per day, which being refused they deserted the ship. Rather than suffer a whole night's delay, their demands were aceded to, and the vessel proceeded on her voyage. [Detroit Tribune]
