Mutiny on Dundee Steamer

Tally StreetThirteen of the crew of the Dundee steamer 'Auldmuir' were brought before a special sitting of North Shields Magistrates on a charge of disobeying the orders of the master, and ten of them were sent to prison for fourteen days. It appears that the vessel while proceeding down the Tyne collided with the King Edward Bridge. When she got to sea the men demanded that the vessel be put back, as she was taking in water. They refused to work, and the vessel put back to Shields when it was found that she was in every way perfectly seaworthy.

Unomi's Notebook

Dundee's chances at Kilmarnock
Rugby Park has now pleasant memories for Dundee. They were beaten there on a frosty day when well in the running for the flag, and last season it was the same story, so well are the locals doing, that I fancy they will just win for the third time in succession. Falkirk ought to beat St.Mirren, Hibs and Academicals, look like making active fight at Douglas Park, but 3d Lanark will probably win with ease. Partick Thistle should get the better of Raith Rovers, although the Fifers are a much better team than their position on the table indicates.

The King's Theatre

Even in the midst of the turmoil of an election, recreation amusement and fun are needed, and nothing could be a better tonic than next week's programme at the King's Theatre. At the top of the bill appears Horace Hunter and Company in their most entertaining impersonation sketch entitled Mayor von Moltz. This is pronounced to be one of the most interesting and amusing character sketches ever presented to the public. Juggling will be undertaken by Paul Vardy, who is world-famed in the mystic art. The Brothers Werd, a clever pair of novelty acrobats will delight the audience with their comic tricks. As the whole the programme is a delightfully varied one. Something to suit all tastes will be on the board in this popular house of entertainment during next week.
