p.2 Steamboat Captains Unite - A meeting of local licensed steamboat captains was held Tuesday to discuss an important matter. It appears that incompetent men have been given certificates entitling them to command steamers. Nominally they have charge of steamers, but invariably some hireling performs the navigating. It is to rectify this evil that the competent captains seek to unite. With this end in view they will form an association, on lines similar to those existing in Toronto, Windsor, and elsewhere. They have sent for organizer Wilson, of Toronto, who will be here next week to effect an organization.
