Matthews, Henry Edenshaw and  'bougiass Edenshaw left the Indian  village shortly after noon on Saturday to transact eome business at  Masset.   Just before reaching the  wharf hereM/xtthews came up from  the cabin, and   in some   way  lost  his   footing   and   fell , overboard.  Henry Edenshnw. who was at the  wheel, heard some one shout thit  there was   a man   overboard   and  immediately put   the boat around.  No one   noticed" Matthews  fall  from the launch, hut seveutl heard  the splash. Matthews came to the  surface once after falling overboard.  He evidently could  not swim and  was threshing the   water with his  hai.ds in an effort to remain afloat.  He was then seen to throw  up his  hands and his body sank.  C. M. Adam of Graham Centre  was just about docking his launch  when the accident occurred. He  got his boat out to where Matthews  had disappeared and after eome  time by the aid of a pike polp, located the body in about eight feet  of water .and brought it to the surface. The body was:, still warm.  Arthur Robertson, James Cauth-  ers, Al Orr, Sam Ives and several  others began tho work of rescusci-  tation and Dr. Graves was at once  summoned. The usual methods  were employed by emptying the  lungs of water and Dr. Graves and  his assistants worked many hours  in an unavailing effort to restore  life.  The relative* of Matthews at the  village were notified and a large  number came from the village.  By this time Dr. Graves was  convinced    thav < Matthews    had  a dinghy with him, but it was  shown that it was the custom of  owners of gasolina launches, plying between the village and Mas-  net, to use their discretion in this  matter. A verdict of accidental  death was returned.  c  ^ The deceased was about 25 years  of age and a stepson of Wm. Matthews, as well, known resident of  Masset reserve/The funeral was  held yesterday afternoon from the  Indian village and was very largely attended.

Emmons.  The same interests, it is also as-  ���������erted, are planning to start operations boring for o:l near the Wil-  eon and Robertaon camps. ,  The Leader hopes that the news  is true and that the capitalists  mean business. We believe that  oil and coal in paying quantities  will be found on Graham Island  but the finding will necessitate the  H celebration   on   the island of  knight; mass. Father McDonald  covered an eloquent sermon on  ^occasion,   taking   for his test  ^birth   of the   child Jesus and  Porting his. hearers to bring up  tar children   in   the fear of the  ^aigh'ty   and   teach   them to be  tore in mind and heart.
