A serious Accident was narrowly averted at the stove works monday Forenoon. An Iron girder supporting the cupola platform gave Way precipitating a Workman along wit i a Quantity of Firebrick some eight or ten feet below striking another Workman. The two Young men who figured in the Accident were Arthur Walker and Frank Montague both of whom escaped with slight injuries. Or. Walker was Wheeling a Load of waste castings out of the foundry to the elevator. The wheelbarrow had just reached tie cleaning room door when the Young Man heard the floor above giving Way. With the wheelbarrow in front of him it was impossible to wholly escape the Brick and debris which rained Down upon him. I sustain of a Scalp wound which required several stitches besides an injury upon his hand and right leg. As a result of the girder breaking Only a Section of the floor above some by eight feet gave Way. Frank Montague was standing squarely upon tie portion which came Down and was unable to save himself. He got a dangerous fall but beyond a wrench in the Back he does not seem to he much injured. The girder was supposed to be perfectly sound and gave was without the least warning. The platform above frequently supports a weight of a ton or More. Yesterday it was not taxed to anything like its full capacity Aud contained Only a few fire Brick. A Workman had just dumped a wheelbarrow Load of soft Coal upon the platform beside the cupola. The slight Jar it seemed was sufficient to snap the girder in two and thus the Accident occurred. It is regarded As a very singular circumstance. The damage wrought was very slight. A portion of the blast pipe of the cupola was carried away but this could have been easily repaired Aud a heat could have been run yesterday afternoon but the Accident caused some delay and confusion in the foundry and at the request of the moulders it was decided to Knock Oft for the Dav.

Owing to tie building operations at the canal where tie Stone Culvert is in process of erection both Farmers and patrons Are put to no Little inconvenience at present All of which however Are As nothing compared with Fiat must follow when Street paving and the building of the trolley line get under Way. It seems to 1hi a settled question with Council that other quarters will have to to selected for the Market at least while the system of improvements contemplated Are under Way. Whether when All is finished Mill Street will he found available for a Market is a fact which will develop later. Something will have to be done very quickly and just How to meet the emergency is one of the problems that Council has on its hands at present. Some of tie Farmers do not take very kindly to ferry Street As a site for tie Market on account of the exposed condition which affords vendors no shelter in Case of Stormy weather.
