Full Text

DROWNED - Capt. Hurst, a well known lake man among Canadian vessel owners, and master of the schooner UNION JACK, of Kingston, was drowned from that vessel while in Lake Huron on the recent downward passage from Chicago. By a sudden jibing of the mainsail at night he was struck by the mainboom and knocked overboard. All efforts towards his rescue were unavailing. He was a well known and respected resident of Kingston, where his wife and family reside.
