Looking After Yankee Captains.

Hamilto, April 7th - Capt. Manson, of the schr. Erie Belle, arrived here this morning to look after his vessel, which wintered here. The captain is a good grit, and a staunch loyalist, and he proposes to get after the captains sailing Canadian vessels who hold American papers. A regulation was made against it last year, but it has not been enforced to any extent. What Capt. Manson objects to principally, is that most of these captains are Canadians who have forsworn their allegiance. He has told the Toronto harbor master that he will prosecute him if he gives any of these Canadian-Yankee skippers a clearance. Canadian captains cannot sail American vessels.

Cannot Go This Year To Hamilton - The Richelieu and Ontario navigation company has decided that it cannot, during the approaching season, extend the trips of its steamers to Hamilton, but, as it intends to add another boat to its fleet, will probably make Hamilton a terminus in 1894.

The New Landing Waiter - Capt. Geohegan had been sailing for 35 years, worked for M.T. Co. for eleven years.
