According to reports from St. Louis,
there is trouble for the colored roust
.Huts that do duty on the packets
1hat ply on the "father of waters" on
the upper and lower rivers. The
"roosters," as they are known in the
parlance of the river, have had their
day, so to speak, and now the man
agers of the steamboa't lines propose
to have their inning. In other words,
instead of having the roustabouts
strike, the packets hae struck. This
is something of an innovation, and its
outcome will 1m awaited with interest
by all the towns alcng the river.
As the plot has been unfolded thus
far, it seems to run in this wise: The
Eagle Packet company is one of the
leading river interests which make St.
Louis their headquarters. During the
week just closed it started the war
fare on the colored roustabouts by
turning all its negro employes adrift
and filling their places with white
men. The reason was plain. The ne
groes had been engaged by the mate
for one of the steamers en a basis of
$-13 a month', and then shortly before
the mailing of the steamer on which
thev were to serve thev made a sud
den and peremptory demand for $7.1 a
month. This was startling and
eclipsed the most radical demand ever
made by any labor union. The com
pany would not stand for it. The
cargo and pnssenger list would not
admit of the expense, and Capt. Henry
Ley he went up town to look for an
other crew. At a large agency he
found -to Austria ns who were glad to
ship at $15 a m nth and their board,
and the Gray Eagle got out with little
According to rivermen. this marks
the beginning of an innovation in
steamboating. Other packet lines will
follow the Eagle company's lead and
try out white crews.
The roustabout question has grown
to be very serious on the river as the
negroes have been supported and- in
cited to demand excessive wages, it is
said by rivermen, by the lower class
of St. Louis letee saloonkeepers.
Capt. Henry W. Ley he. passenger
agent of the Kagle Packet company,
savs that thev an erv well pleased
with the work of the Austrians, who
are doing better work than the ne
groes, lie says tnat J- of the white
men will do more work than double
the number of bla ks and with less
The wages, $45 a month and board
is better. Capt. Ley he says, than la
borers ashore get. and the move oi
the packet lines toward white labor
means the extinction of the negroes
on the river unless thev get down 'to
a different working basis.
In I'Maeocrr Trade.
The old upper iher rafter which
bears the n.mantic name of Mountain
PcIIe, will no longer plv the waters
of the upper Mississippi behind Ion
Mrmg of logs, as she lias done in
past season. The rafter was pur
chased recently by a La Crosse con
tern by the name of the Exposition
transportation company, and gets in
to the passenger trade on the upper
river as soon as the ice is gone.
The Mountain P.elle will scarcely b
recognized when she comes down the
river in the spring. A new cabin has
been built on her decks, in which a
large numln?r of staterooms are par
titioned off. The craft is adorned with
a coat of white paint, and she will
have in tow a large barge of the
same hue. The boat has an electric
light plant of her own, and will be
one of the finesflittle passenger lioats
on the upper river. A crew of 14 nun
have been at work on the steamer
making the repairs and alterations.
Notea of Klrer.
The F.art E. Linehan, which boat
was formerly one of the upper Mis
sissippi rafters, is now running on the
Cumberland river. The Waterways
Journal say she is now going down
the river w'ith &OO.00O feet of lnmler
for the Nashille market. This is the
biggest tow ever taken down the Cum
berland. I-ast year the Linehan made
the record tow, 700,000 feet for a single

As is well known, the boat was re
modeled last year, and converted in
to a handsome passenger steamer, and
will be in the St. Louis trade on the
lower river this season.

port of Dubuque has been sold by
