Federal agents found evidence of stowaways last night in a ship that arrived in Baltimore from the port of Le Havre, France, in what they believe is part of a smuggling ring that is using this city as its destination point.Agents from the Immigration and Naturalization Service and the U.S. Customs Service targeted the MSC Rita, which is docked at Dundalk Marine Terminal, because it fit the profile of three ships in which stowaways or evidence of stowaways have been found in the past month, said Stephen Fickett, deputy director of the INS Baltimore District.

Havre de Grace was able to pull together a respectable version of its Lafayette Trail, just in time for the bicentennial celebration of a British sacking of the city during the War of 1812. The trail is named for Marie Joseph Paul Yves Roche Gilbert du Motie, a French military advisor sent by the French crown, who became a hero of the American Revolution, then returned to his native land and became a hero of the French Revolution. Possibly because his name is a bit a mouthful, he is better known by his title, the Marquis de Lafayette.

THE mood about cruises out of Baltimore is quite upbeat, according to Harriet Segal, head of the port's customer relations, with cruises scheduled for departure to Bermuda, the Caribbean, Canada and South America. Indeed, more passenger ships are scheduled to call at the Port of Baltimore this season than at any time in the past 15 years, say port officials. But the port will have to beef up its passenger business a whole lot to match or surpass the volume before World War II.In 1930, you could go direct weekly from Pier 11 in Canton to Le Havre, France.

In a recent speech to a French audience, Claude Abraham,president of CGM, a large French steamship and transport company, gave his audience a history lesson. Mr. Abraham, who spent a number of years as a professor, is an educator at heart. He maintains that maritime history is in the process of repeating itself. The port of Baltimore should take heed.His premise is persuasive. During the 1990s we will witness the swelling of one of those waves of international trade that have risen periodically over the centuries.

When you're born in paradise, there's no reason to ever leave." That's the sentiment of David Craig, mayor of Havre de Grace, a scenic waterfront community on the Susquehanna River with a rich history that inspires fierce loyalty in longtime residents and newcomers alike. "It's the land that time forgot," joked Craig, whose family has lived in Havre de Grace since the 1600s. "Houses here are passed on from generation to generation," he said. He and his wife, Melinda, live in a 160-year-old house within blocks of two of their three children.
