p.1 Trial of Alexander McLeod - (cont'd)

p.3 Coroner's Inquests - Another Inquest was held yesterday on the body of Robert Maltman. The deceased was a Fireman on board the Government steam barge Union. It appeared in evidence that the deceased went on board the boat along with the Engineer, the night before, between the hours of 9 and 10 - Engineer told deceased to go below to the engine room and to sleep there. The following morning deceased was not to be found. From his jacket being in the engine room, it was conjectured that having occasion to go on deck during the night, he had fallen overboard. Search was immediately made by the crew of the steamer, and his body was brought up with a boat hook, close along side the vessel. Verdict, "Found drowned."

Tenders called for supplying pine board for Hospital at Kingston Dock Yard.
