FRIGHTFUL ACCIDENT BY MACHINERY

About eleven o'clock on Monday morning a frightful accident occurred at the works of Messrs. Hutton and Son, silver platers, Sheffield, to a young woman named Emma Memmott, who was employed as a slver polisher. The young women employed in silver polishing stand at a workboard, about four feet apart, and underneath each board, at about 18 inches from the floor, runs the shaft from the steam-engine by which the polishing spindles are propelled. An iron bar is fixed on a level with the front of each workbench, to protect the clothes of the young women from the shaft. This precautionary measure, however, proved ineffectual in the case of Memmott, for while she was at work on Monday morning her clothes, from some unknown cause, became entangled with the coupling box of the shaft. Feeling the drag at her clothes, she screamed out for assistance, and a man named Birks under whom she worked, ran to her assistance, and, seizing her under the arms, endeavoured to drag her from the spot, both he and she screaming all the while to the persons in care of the engine in a lower room to stop it. The engine was not stopped, and the machinery gradually wound up the young woman's clothes, dragging her down at every moment, despite the efforts of Birks, who, finding it useless further to contend against the force of the machinery himself ran into the lower room and instantly stopped the engine. When he returned to the poor young woman he found all her clothes torn off, and her body mutilated in the most shocking manner; it was literally crushed to pieces. She was quite dead. It is supposed that an iron bar connected with the shaft was loose, and caused the accident, for so great was the force of the machinery, that the bar, though of considerable thickness, was found wrapped round the shaft, as though it had been a piece of cord.

JAMES HUTTON

Image

The late James Hutton, Montreal, was born in Birmingham, Eng., March 25th, 1812. He was the son of William and Catherine Hutton, and was educated in Birmingham. His elder brother, W. Carr Hutton, having established some years previously in Sheffield, an electroplating business, Mr. Hutton joined him, remaining until 1841. He then came to Montreal, to represent Messrs. Marsh Bros., of Sheffield, in the cutlery and hardware trade. On their retirement from business, in Montreal, Mr. Hutton represented several leading houses in Sheffield, Wolverhampton and other places. In 1856, he admitted his nephew, Mr. W. H. Hutton, as a partner, when the firm became James Hutton & Co., under which name it still exists. In 1884, he withdrew from active business, feeling the weight of increasing years; after his retirement, the business was carried on by his nephew, until his death in 1893, and is now continued under Mr. Hutton's successors. He was a Liberal in politics, but took no active part in either political or public life. He was a member of the Church of England, and was identified with St. George's Church, Montreal, from its erection, April 23rd, 1843, until his death. He was also one of its lay delegates to both the Diocesan and Provincial Synods for several years, and filled the responsible office of treasurer (honorary), to the Diocese of Montreal, and to the Provincial Synod up to the time of his death. Mr. Hutton was a man of unblemished character, and of the strictest integrity, and high moral rectitude. He always took an active interest in religious work, and was deeply interested in the establishment of the Montreal Diocesan College, to which he contributed, and of which he was a life governor. In 1843, Mr. Hutton married the only daughter of Mr. Wm. Ludlam, of Montreal, who survives him. His death occurred August 23rd, 1889, in his 77th year, and was mourned by a large circle of friends who were connected with him in business and social circles.

William Henry Hutton

William Henry Hutton of the firm of James Hutton & Co., Montreal, Que., was born in Sheffield, Eng., October 8th, 1834. He is the son of William Carr and Mary Anne (Hinchcliffe) Hutton, of that city. His father was the original maker of nickel silver goods, and one of the pioneers of the electro plate trade. Mr. Hutton was educated at the Pension " Sillig," at Vevey, on the Lake of Geneva, Switzerland. As soon as his education was completed, he entered the hardware trade, and has continued in that calling. He came to Canada in 1856, to join his uncle, the late James Hutton, who was then the head of the firm of which the subject of this sketch is now sole proprietor. They represent in this country the celebrated houses of Thomas Firth & Son, limited ; Joseph Rodgers & Son, limited ; William Hutton & Sons ; Steel, Peech & Tozer, limited, and other well-known firms. In religion, Mr. Hutton is an Episcopalian. He is a member of the A. F. & A. M., and was worshipful master of St. Paul's Lodge, No. 374, E.R., from 1867 to 1870. He has been deputy district grand master in charge of the Montreal district of English masonry since 1886. He joined the Victoria Rifles of Canada at their formation in 1862, and served as adjutant of the first administrative battalion on the Western frontier, from December, 1864 to May, 1865. In the year 1868, he was made lieutenant-colonel of the Victoria Rifles, and seven years later, after thirteen years of service, he retired, retaining rank. In politics, Mr. Hutton is a Liberal-Conservative. In 1872, he was appointed Justice of the Peace in Montreal. Whether as a business man in charge of very important interests as a prominent member and office bearer of the masonic fraternity, as a soldier, a Justice of the Peace, or as a private citizen, Mr. Hutton is a decided success. He married Cornelia Middagh, daughter of the late Joseph Henshaw, of Brooklyn, New York, 1862, and two daughters have been born to them.
