      Amherstburg, April 10 - The Northern Steamship Company is hard hit in the result of the schooner FAYETTE BROWN case, which was made public today. Some 3 years ago the FAYETTE BROWN was sunk on Lake Erie by one of the company's steamers. F.B. Hackett last fall undertook the job of wrecking. The steamship Co, sued Hackett last fall and the case was tried before Justice Falconbridge at Sandwich. The Justice referred it to J.E. Marcon of Windsor to ascertain what amount was due Hackett for services in connection with the wreck. The master's report has just been made and awards Hackett $8,408. This will throw the cost of the references on the Northern Steamship Co. also, which will be between $7,000 and $8,000 more.
