HRANGELL NARROWS
'
A watchman named Yahr was shot
dead by an Indian named Shorty No. 2 at
a saltery near Tonka, in Wrangell nar
rows, last Sunday morning at 3:30
o'clock. The story of the tragedy is
told by the wife of the murdered watch
man, a bride of a year, who ran for six
miles through the wilderness of trees
and swamp lands in her bare feet and
nightdress and without covering for her
head to a point opposite Tonka, from
where she attracted the attention of
the cannerymen.
Mrs. Yahr t?lls the story of the mur
der. Shorty No. 2 and another Indian
came to the >altery where lived Yahr,
both in liquor. They wanted more
j liquor. Yahr was accustomed to sell
ing it to Indians. They got it, and
' were finally put to bed up stairs in the i
j loft. At about 3 o'clock in the morn
I ing thev quarrellel and began lighting.
| Yahr went up stairs and put Shorty out
of the house. The latter went down to
| his boat, got his rifle, returned and shot
Yahr in the forehead, killing
him instantly. He then went in
the bedroom searching for Mrs,
Yahr. She was under the bed,
but had previously left the win
dow open. Shorty thinking she
had escaped went outside, she then got
out through the wicdow and without
clothing made inU{the night.
Marshal Grant was at Tonka, and
with a posse, he went to the scene of
the tragedy. The two Indians were
found in hiding on an island seven '
miles away.
Mrs. Yahr and the murderer came
to Juneau on the Dirigo. The corpse
was taken to Wrangel.
The dead man and his wife were from
