(Canadian Press Dispatch)
Kingston, Sept. 28. - A bad wreck took place on Lake Ontario Sunday morning when the schooner CHEBOYGAN, loaded with feldspar, on her way from Kingston to Buffalo, foundered a few miles off Amherst Island. Five people lost their lives, including Captain MacDonald and wife; W. Joyner, Kingston; J. Lavis, Cobourg, and Robert Milne, Port Hope. One lone spar is sticking up near the scene of the wreck, and Joseph Bray, living on Amherst Island, says he saw the boat go down. It was impossible for a small boat to live in the sea. The CHEBOYGAN had various mishaps this season.
