p.2 Supposed Accident - A telegram from Toronto in the Hamilton Times says: "The yacht Foam, which left Toronto for Niagara on Saturday with seven gentlemen of this city on board, has not been heard of, and grave fears are entertained of disaster, and there is much anxiety in consequence. Among those on board were R.C. Henderson, of the firm of J. & R.C. Henderson, barristers; two sons of Weir Anderson, Commissioner of Trust and Loan Company; Mr. Vernon, clerk in same office; William Richards, son of Chief Justice Richards teller of Quebec Bank; James Murray, son of the late Alex. Murray, of Moffatt, Murray & Co. The tug Lion started at 2 a.m. in search and proceeded to Port Dalhousie, thence to Beamsville, and called at every place till she reached Oakville, whence telegraphed "No tidings obtained." It is said the yacht was seen seven or eight miles from Niagara on Sunday morning. The United States Revenue Cutter in this port has also started to aid in the search." The Foam will be better known to Kingston readers as the John Power, built here by Mr. Power and sailed around here for many years.
