Thomas Aram Drowaed.
A Iriglitfiil accident accurred at the
Clearwater ferry yesterday. Thomas
Aram, a stock grower from Camas
prairie lost his life. He was a passen
ger on the bout when it sank from au
over load of cattle; and becoming dis
engaged from tlie eraft lie drowned iu
mid stream.
The unfortunate man and his associ
ates were transporting a shipment of
cattle and tlie last tsiat load was a
large one. Tlie stock tiecame restless
and crowded to one end. sinking it
under water. As tlie boat sank Mr.
Aram jumped off on tlie upper river
side and grasped one of the heavy
ropes. He had evidently calculated
that lie would lie safe if lie held to the
line with a liriti hold. In this lie was
deceived. When tlie wire cable t liât
spans the river gHve way from tlie
force of tlie current upon the sunKeu
imat tile line to which the desperate
man was clinging sank to tlie bottom.
He let go ot tlie nqie and tried to swill
hut tlie current bore him on. He
struggled liant to keep a flout hut be
fore help could nrri vc lie sank t> tlie
lint tom.
Soon after tlie boat left tlie shore it
became apparent that- tiiere was dan
ger of its sinking. Mr. Brown the
ferryman coolly warned those on hoard
to hold to tlie boat in case of accident.
Mr. Arum discussed tlie subject
and did not seem to display any ex
citement,. But when tlie boat began
to sink lie deliberately jumped off. He
evidently had calculated that he would
he safe if he secured a hold on the
bridle rope which extended from tlie
cable to the boat. This would have
iieeu a safe position Had not the cable
fallen and carried tlie bridle rope to tlie
bottom. He was seen to grasp tins
rope firmly und apparently deliber
ately and it is believed he had planned
that movement to escape possible dun
get from tlie overturning of tlie boat.

without any support and when he |

Hi. u
arose he was far out of reach ot the 1
bout. If he had been a good swinttm r
lie could have caught some Hunting
object or |>eriiapg n horse which swum
by. While lie could keep himself
afloat he could not pro|>el himself in
the water. He flouted 300 or 400 feet
in tlie swift current liefere lie sank.
He became exhausted in tlie cold
water and sank without a word or a
cry—sank to rise no more—with a
hundred friends so near and yet pow
erless to aid.
Mr. Arum was 38 years old. He
leaves u wife and two children at
Grungeville and a father and mother
in tills city. He also l as other rela
tives some of whom were dependant
upon him for support. He was an ex

and guardian. He was well known
throughout this and Idaho counties,
and all who knew him honor his
memory and mourn his death.
