The prop. Glengarry is being relieved of her cargo of damaged wheat. Mr. Chapman, Toronto, representing the Western British American insurance company, an expert in the examination of grain, is present at the unloading. He is unable to give any information about the grain and does not know whether it had protection from fire. The best of the grain will be removed to Montreal by barges and the damaged sold here.

Serious Accident - Fairhaven, June 4th - Capt. Hugh Rooney of the schr. Jessie Drummond was run down by a coal train on the trestle at this place. He attempted to cross the track as a run of coal was being backed up and was struck by a car and knocked down in a coal pocket full of coal, cutting his head badly also bruising his back and dislocating his collar bone. One or more cars ran over his foot so that amputation of the great toe is necessary.

The Jewellery Found - jewellery of late Mary Lamb found in wreckage of steamer Glengarry.
