In the case of Leduc vs. the Montreal Transportation company, in Montreal, the plaintiff claimed salary and an indemnity for having been dismissed from the position of captain of a barge plying between Montreal and Kingston. The defence was that the dismissal was justified as the plaintiff had not fulfilled the terms of his contract. The superior court maintained the action, and the court of appeal confirmed that judgement.

Three barges belonging to the Ogdensburg coal company - the England, the Ireland, and the Argo - bound from Ogdensburg to Montreal, with cargoes of coal, ran ashore at Cardinal, Ont., on Tuesday last. These vessels bring the number which have gone ashore at this point within the past few months up to ten. The underwriters claim that owing to the dangerous condition of the waterway at this particular point they are obliged to charge exceptionally high rates of insurance.
