Along the Docks

Many sailors were on a strike this morning for $1.50 per day. The rate is set established, for while some vessels paid the out-side figure, others shipped crews at $1.25.

The schooner Annie Minnes, Captain Clark, which arrived in port yesterday afternoon, from Port Hope, ran down in nine hours, one of the best passages on record. Skimming over the water at the rate of twelve miles per hour, is pretty smart sailing.

A large fleet left port this morning, many of the captains preferring to go light, rather than take coal at the low figure offered.

The tug Crusader, which left this port last night, for Duncan City, will be employed in towing rafts and harbor towing, and also will be in readiness to assist disabled vessels, as a steam pump and large hawser will be at her disposal.
