had been recovered. A govern
ment launch is trying" to recover
the bodies of the three still miss

took out the boat and-24 recruits
yesterday without notifying the
officer of the day. He gave his
life for his mistake. He saved the
lives of two of the boys who
could not swim and was drowned
while going back for more.
The 24 recruits begged Negus
to take them out in the-boat yes
terday. Negus did not want to
do it, but all the boys were ex
perienced, and he finally yielded.
A strong gale was blowing, and
there was a heavy sea. Some of
the boys became seasick. Negus
turned the boat, and started for
shore. A wave struck the 'boat.
Two of the boys, frightened,
jumped overboard. In doing so,
they capsized the boat.
