Captain Asks Compensation

Capt. Trussel, lately in command of the steamer Wolfe Islander, is asking the Wolfe Island council for compensation for breach of contract. At a recent meeting of the island township council, the matter was discussed, but no definite decision was arrived at. The trouble arises over some hitch in the agreement.

Last summer, after Capt. Crawford resigned from command of the steamer, Capt. Trussel was engaged to fill the position. He was hired for a period of about three months. When his time was up the Council met and reengaged him for this season. Unfortunately the harbour opened when the captain was ill and for that reason the council had to appoint someone to take his place.

Captain Trussel, after recovering from his illness, came to the city expecting to get his position. He was very much surprised upon finding the steamer in command of another man. Some state that the captain was not notified about another man being engagetd.

He now asks the council for one month's pay and all expenses. At the council meeting the members were in favor of paying him that amount under certain conditions. Reeve Spankie will secure legal advice before the money is paid over.
