Kingston, May 29. - Capt. Crawford, commander of the ferry Fawcett, owned by the city council of Wolfe Island, is now engaged in a life and death struggle for the dignity of his profession. Capt. Crawford allowed that it is beneath his station as a commander of a steamboat to truck freight when his vessel lay at dock. When Capt. Crawford refused flatly to man a truck, he was summarily discharged by the councilmen. He then engaged a lawyer and has begun suit. The outcome will be watched with interest by mariners as fixing the limits to which a ship's commander may go in his official duties.
