p.1 Latest News - Capt. Roley, superintendent of pilots, Montreal, is seeking to collect pilotage dues from the American steamer Hinckley, of Oswego, which did not employ a Canadian pilot, and disclaims responsibility for dues. The superintendent claims, however, that an American vessel is as liable for dues in Canadian waters as a Canadian vessel, and he has taken an action to recover the amount claimed. The case will be in the nature of a test one.
