Ship Manifest to Canada - "Assiste"?

I'm trying to decipher a word that appears to be "assiste" on a ship manifest. The ship is the Canadian which arrived Quebec Canada 22 June 1879.

By the name John Carruthers and 3 others the word appears written across the columns for Infant and Occupation. It also looks like in the first column, Port of Embarkation, an orignal check mark was crossed out then a second check mark made and the word 'Assiste' or 'Asst' or 'Asste' was written in.

Would anyone have a suggestion what this word might mean?

thanks.
