QUEEN CHARLOTTE, B.C. MONDAY, JANUARY 20, 1913

A sad drowning fatility occurred on
Wednesday night at Aliford Bay, when
two fishermen, Percy Graham and Fred
Newman, . employed with the British
Columbian Fisheries, lost their lives
while following their vocation.
It seems that the men were fishing in
their own time, and after supper went
out to haul in their lines. Fraser Bros,
towed the men out to where their lines
were set, and were wailing in the
v'einity to take them ashore when the
unfortunate accident happened, which
was about seven o'clock. After leaving the men at work, Frasers' boat had
drifted some distance away. Hearing
cries of distress, and noticing that the
light on board the fishing boat had disappeared, Fraser Bros, immediately
started up their engine and headed
towards where they had left the men.
They could see no trace of them and
the boat, a flat-bottom, which they
were using, was found half full of
water. Fraser Bros, at once vent
ashore for assistance and before many
minutes had passed several boats were
on the scene searching for the bodies.
About nine o'clock, Joseph Molitor and
Robert Green found Graham's body,
the fishing lines being entangled around
it when brought to the surface. The
body was immediately taken ashore and
artificial respiration applied for two
hours, but without success.
Newman's body has not been recovered yet, although the search has
been continued daily by boats with
trawls.
As far as can be ascertained the accident happened while the men were
hauling in their lines. The surmise is
that one of the men slipped causing the
boat to heel over, throwing them into
the water. The night was extremely
cold, and with their heavy clothing and
boots, they had very little chance of
saving themselves.
Percy Graham was 26 years of age and
a native of Grimsby, Eng., where he
leaves a wife and two children. He
came out on*the trawler Canada, which
arrived at Aliford Bay a few months,
ago. Latterly he was employed as net
boss at the fishing station.
Fred Newman was 32 years of age,
and leaves a wife and four children.
He was a native of Grimsby, England,
and came out on the trawler Triumph
as mate.
INQUEST HELD
Coroner Sandilands held an inquest
on Thursday in the office of the B. C.
Fisheries at Aliford Bay. The jury
empanelled were B. J. Russell (foreman), C. E. Putman, J. Moore, H. H.
Cullis, R. L. Horanby and Peter Currie.
Evidence was given by Wm. Fraser,
Duncan Fraser, J. Molitor and Robert
Green as to the finding of Graham's
body. The jury returned a verdict of
accidentally drowned while fishing.
The funeral of Percy Graham took
place yesterday and was largely attended. The body was interred at
Queen Charlotte cemetery.

was thought that the - building was
doomed and all the furniture was removed to a place of safety. Once the
hose got playing it did not take long to
extinguish the blaze.

Tlie Drowning Fatility.
The regrettable drowning fatility
last Wednesday night is deeply deplored
by all residents in this neighborhood.
The young men had only left England a
few months ago with the object of
bettering their conditions in this country
and it is said it was their intention of
sending for their wives and families
soon. It is a sad blow for the dear
ones left in the Old Country, and who,
perhaps, are not too well off. Both
3SOO left little ones and the struggle
for existence for the bereaved mothers
vail be a hard one. We are glad to say
that arrangement have been made to
hold a benefit concert at Queen Charlotte on Friday, Jan. 31. The entire
proceeds of the concert will be devoted
to a fund for the wives and families,
and we are sure that all who can will
attend to help this worthy cause. Mr.
P. S. Jack, secretary, will acknowledge
donations towards the concert fund
in both local papers.
The Captain Aed Crew
Settle Their Differences
-o-
Etitzt Steamer Service For
The Islands Next. Summer.
Mr. Charles M. Wilson of Massett is
authority for the statement that the
coming summer will see a direct boat
service between Vancouver and the
Queen Charlotte Islands.
Mr. McMaster, general agent of the
G. T. P., on being questioned about the
matter, states that he has received no
information from the head offices of
the G. T. P. steamship service to that
effect. He stated, however, that he
expected an improved service between
Prince Rupert and the islands in effect
this coming summer.
 -o	
School For Skidegate.
At a meeting held at Skidegate last
week, Messrs. E. Valentine, George
Carmichael and Norman Fraser were
elected to serve as School Trustees.
The necessary number of children having been secured, it is hoped to open
school about the - beginning of next
n.onth.
The following report of police court
proceedings at Prince Rupert in which
the Captain and crew of the P. C.
Fisheries trawler Canada were involved,
is taken from the Daily News:
"Magistrate Carss presided yesterday
over what might be termed an Admiralty Court to adjudicate between the
captain bold and the crew of the trawler
Canada, in their little differences arising
out of the Xmas and New-Year's
celebrations.
"The first act was played to an appreciative audience the day before when
the charge of assault against Capt.
Quinn made by Tommy White, the chief
engineer, vvas dismissed. Yesterday
the parts were transposed, Torn my
White being the defendant in a charge
of assault on the 'Doughty* Skipper.
All hands were on deck, the mate, the
midshipmite, the bos'un tight and the
crew of the captain's gig. From the
evidence adduced it was pretty clear
that tv/o distinct blows were struck.
It is probable that the first one was by
the engineer, who took objection to the
captain's remarks anent Scotsmen, he
being himself a son of the 'country of
the thistle and hergew. : The captain
plainly came back, as the swollen ear
of the engineer' testified. They both
roiled in the mud in the vicinity of the
Central Hotel, where the fracas occurred. Immediately upon recovering
their feet, the engineer returned to the
ship, whilst the captain hied himself to
the police station," where he asked for
protection from the crew. Constable
Cargill was detailed to accompany him
on board his ship. Upon going on board
and calling down the hatchway, announcing his arrival, Tommy White,
who had arrived ahead of him, eame on
deck and rushing at the skipper, seized
him by the throat, making a pretty good
attempt at throttling. Apparently after
this nothing further happened and the
constable left the ship, no charge being
preferred.
Capt. Quinn in giving his evidence,
remarked that "he was a sort of
foreigner aboard his ship, all the rest
of the crew being Scotsmen." On board
ship he said "I am the supreme being."
He is a bluff and hearty looking old sea
dog, who hails from Grimsby. Lincolnshire, England, but has a distinct Irish
streak as his name would proclaim.
The  assertion by the crew   that he
was gradually starving them to 'da'ajt^'
was somewhat ludicrous in the light of
the fat and healthy appearance pjv^g
men who made the assertion.
Finally, after magistrate and counsel
had sifted the matter to the bottom it
resolved itself into more or less of a
drunken brawl, the defendant, Tommy j
White being fined five dollars and costs.
The Magistrate lectured the members
of the crew upon the seriousness of not
subjecting themselves to discipline on
board a ship, End showed how they laid
themselves open to a serious charge, !
punishable with imprisonment for assault upon a superior officer.

COAL NOTICES
(Continued from page 3)
Sometimes permission was granted to
souls in the clouds to revisit the earth.
Then they could only be seen by the Sa-
ag-ga, who described them as destitute
of all clothing, weary and forlorn.
They were looked upon as wicked and
treacherous spirits, and the medicine
man's duty was to prevent them entering any of the houses ; and not only so,
but a« soon as the Sa-ag-ga made the
announcement that a certain soul or
spirit had descended from the clouds,
no one could be tempted to leave their
homes because the sight of a -'ickeJ
soul would cause sickness and tiouble,
and his touch, death. Now it sometimes happened that the souls in the
Domain of Death were sufficiently pure
and holy to remain longer than twelve
months in his kingdom, yet when their
bodies died they were not wicked enough
to be captured by Chief Cloud. Then
it became necessary that the less sanctified souls had to return immediately to
earth and a further chance was given
to them to become regenerated. Every
soul therefore that was not worthy of
entering heaven and not wicked enough
for the lower regions was sent back to
his friends and reborn at the first opportunity. As was customary the Sa-ag-
ga entered the house to see the newly
born baby, and his attendent spirits
would announce to him that in that
child was the soul of one of their departed friends who had died during the
preceeding year. Their new life had to
be such as would suject them to retribution for the misdeeds of their former life, and thus the purgation of
souls had to be carried on in successive
migrations until they were good enough
and made suitable to enter the region
of eternal life. Likewise it sometimes
happened that some souls were too depraved and wicked after twelve months
sojourn in the clouds to be conducted to
Chief Het-gwau-lan-a, and these also
were sent back to earth; but were never
again allowed to re-enter mankind.
They were commanded and allowed to
enter the bodies of animals, fish and
birds, and compelled to undergo great
torture.
