James Schrigley (Propeller), 9 Apr 1881


Description
Full Text

Two launches took place at Milwaukee on Saturday afternoon, the steam-barge J. H. SCHRIGLEY at the Milwaukee Company's yard, and the tug W. H. WOLF at Wolf & Davidson's. Both launches were attended with success, though the latter was marred by an almost fatal accident. As the tug started down the ways Captain James McGinn, her master and part owner, was thrown from the deck by a sudden jerk and landed head first on the dock among a lot of timber, sustaining an ugly scalp wound which extended from the forehead to the back of the skull. If care is taken of the injured man the doctor who dressed the wound says nothing serious will result.
