Masters Cut Union Ranks.

Detroit, Mich., June 7th - Fifteen members of the local harbor of the Masters' and Pilots' Association wrote their resignations from the association yesterday in the office of Captain J.W. Westcott, local agent for the Steel Trust fleet and sent them to the offices of the harbor. "The deadlock on the lakes is broken," said Captain Westcott after the masters had finished their writing. "The local harbor is broken up now, and I heard from Cleveland on the long distance telephone that twenty-two members of the Cleveland harbour had resigned their membership."
