North Tonawanda, June 14 - The yacht E. SUTTON owned by Sutton Engine Co. of Buffalo which was badly damaged by the falling of the O'Connor hoist upon her, still lies under the wreck in Tonawanda Creek. The three men who were working on the repair work of the SUTTON when the hoist gave way narrowly escaped being pinioned under the craft. The cabin and stern of the SUTTON are crushed in and the engine and boiler of the craft are also damaged. The damage is estimated at $500.
