Struck By a Raft - On Monday night a raft of timber belonging to the Calvin company ran plump upon a dredge owned by McMahon & Co., St. Catharines, used in connection with their contract at Manchester to build the C.P.R. line into Valleyfield, including the bridge across the St. Lawrence to Coteau to Clarke's Island. The dredge was worth $50,000. Although everything was done to save her, in less than half an hour she was at the bottom of the river in a current of seven miles an hour. Should it be possible to raise her it will cost about $2,000, but there is an enormous weight of machinery on board.
