A marine man draws attention to the heavy sentence imposed last week upon a member of the crew of the steamer Harmonic, of the Northern Navigation company. This man was sentenced to fifteen years in penitentiary for heading and leading an attack upon the captain. It seems that going up Lake Huron the firemen mutinied. The captain went down in the hold to warn the men to return to work. He was attacked there and passengers had to rescue him. At Sault Ste. Marie the mutineers were placed under arrest and they were tried at Fort William, the ringleader getting the extreme penalty as provided for mutiny on the high seas. This law applies also to fresh water. The other firemen received shorter terms. The marine man quotes this case as a warning to sailors to beware of taking hot headed action aboard a vessel.
