p.1 Crew Went on Strike - Members of the crew of the steamer Wolfe Islander regarded Thursday as their Jonah day, all right.

This is a very busy day with the veteran steamer, and because the island council refused to give them an extra man to help in the work, the mate, James Davis, and two deck hands, William Armstrong and John Crawford, went on strike. Men were secured to fill their places, and everything is running O.K.

The men claimed that as their work on Thursday was so heavy an extra man should be provided to help, but the council did not see fit to meet their demand.

p.7 I.M.C. - J.B. Merrill.
