The well known lake steamer Toiler is now in the yards of the Montreal Shipbuilding company at Windmill Point, as the result of a slight accident she met with when coming down the canal. Thomas Hall, managing director of the company, stated that the Toiler had been in danger of running into the wall of the canal, and, to prevent this, the captain had reversed his engines and dropped an anchor. The collision was avoided by the means adopted, but the Toiler ran over the flukes of her anchor, with the result that one of the plates of her forepeak was pierced, the hole measuring about six by eight inches.
