British Whig (Kingston, ON), Nov. 14, 1889
- Full Text
The schr. Isaac May, from Toledo to Kingston with corn, passed Port Colborne last night.
The boiler and machinery of the steamer Quinte has been taken to Deseronto, but will be good for nothing excepting old iron. The boiler is out of shape, and the engine, etc., very much broken up. No traces were discovered of the bodies of the unrecovered victims. All hope is given up of ever finding the same.
The pontoon raised from the Gaskin wreck was badly damaged. There was a dinge on one side nearly twelve feet in length, caused by striking the wreck when being sunk. The rivets which held the steel plates together were drawn, and the plates themselves forced wide apart. An effort is being made to get the pontoon into shallow water.
