      Capt. Harry Tyrle of the stm. PENNSYLVANIA was arraigned before police magistrate Logan at Fort Erie yesterday on a charge of violating the Provincial law of Ontario, known as the Lord's Day act, in running excursions to Port Colborne on Sunday. J.F. Green, M.P. appeared for the captain, John A. Paterson of Toronto, for the Lord's Day Alliance, and T.D. Cowper of Welland for the King.
      It was contended on the part of the defense, admitting the facts of the landing of the boat, that the Dominion law granted the boat the right to land and that a Provincial law could not take precedence. A decision is expected on Tuesday.
