p.3 Notice - To Ship-Carpenters and Caulkers!! - Brother Craftsmen, we have reason to believe that parties are at all the Lake Ports, holding out inducements and trying by false statements to get men to come here. The Facts are: we are now struggling to have our wages paid in cash, some of the Employers refuse to do so, their men are now on strike, and it is to fill the places of these men Carpenters and Caulkers are wanted. We appeal to your sense of justice to uphold us in our moderate and just demands. The Ship-Carpenters and Caulkers of the Welland Canal Protective Association, Port Dalhousie.
