Peerless (Propeller), U20470, 1 Aug 1877
- Full Text
THE PROPELLER PEERLESS.--- During the excitement following the late disaster to this propeller the deck hands became unmanageable, and the persuasive pistol was called into execution by the officers and passengers. The deck hands were mutinous because they were not furnished with life-preservers when the vessel was in danger. A passenger on the PEERLESS stated that the situation was very precarious at one time, but the vessel rode the heavy sea well until the propeller SCOTIA came to her aid. Capt. Holland, of the latter craft, is to receive a handsome present from the PEERLESS passengers, for his kind and manly conduct on the occasion. It will require some five or six days to repair the injury to the PEERLESS. She will lose one trip by this delay.
