Full Text

      On Thursday at Port Dalhousie, as the workmen at Muir's shipyard were hoisting a mast to put in the schr. M.L. BRECK, the line broke, letting the mast fall on the deck. Part of the wire rigging struck a carpenter named James Canning, injuring him so badly that he died in about half an hour. The accident also did considerable damage to the deck and rigging.
