Five Days of .Aivful Suspense
Unremitting Search for the Miss
ing. Alfred Osier is Found. Dead Accidently
' ' Shot by his ova Hand. ' -
3Lilaa.g-erln.gr ZDeatlx.
Alfred Osier, Louis Lyons, Rudolph
Lewis, William Kalambaeh and Duncan
Currie left Cheboygan on last Saturday
for a still hunt next day. Their stopping
place wa9 Elliott's old camp, five miles
from town. After nn early breakfast
they separated, agreeing to return for
dinner, and did so. About haJf-past three
they sauntered ou another drive, with
the understanding that they were to
start from the camps for town before
dark. Lyons,Kalambach and Currie were
tirst to face homeward, thinking that
the others would naturally follow. All
got back but Alfred Osier. Ou Monday
morning Frank Osier took alarm at the
absence of his brother, and with several
friends went in his wagon to Bearch,
supposing an accident caused his dis
appearance. 4Ie was unsuccessful.
Tuesday he repeated the search. Wednes
day the alarm 9pread, and parties speed
ily organized, It beiug generally be
lieved Uiat the missing man had met
with a sad fate. Thursday the parties
increased, it being a settled conviction
that he was dead, and returned in the
cveuinsr, but with no better success. Ou
Friday the interest grew to discover tho
m-isaing man's fute. The surmises vere
uuuiy. Swum, imagining U..'U hijyight
have been shot through a mistake in the
dusk. Iu the afternoon of Friday Char
les Leclerc'saw his gun lying in an old
road, about two miles east from the El
liott camp, and near by, between several
stumps and a log, Alfred Osier was found
dead, at half-past four o'clock.
The right hand was shot ., through the
palm, the end of the left thumb carried
away. Irspection showed that east of
tho road ho was restiug his chin on his
hands which covered the muzzle of the
riile, the stock making a dent on the beech
log. Taking alarm its seems at some
object, the stock slid down the side of
the log; the trigger was forced, discharg
ing the rifle, the bullet passing through
the palm of the right and taking the
tip of the thumb of the left hand, rang
ing up under the chin, escaping above
the ear in its fatal errand. . , ,..
showed the hardest struggle to signal
his misfortunes nod make known his
helpless misery. Near by was an old
pine stump; it was polished by his
fingernails endeavoring; to ascend it
that he might bo seen. Refore ho be
came conscious for this effort he must
have lain all night or nearly so, motion
less, senseless. This presumption is
probable from the large blood pool stains
iu the sand.
he seems to have calmly surveyed his
fate. To afford a clue to his discovery
now worked a super human energy. 'lie
therefore moved acoss the Jnear by road,
the prints of his left hand, his knee and
feet being marked la the dust, the trail
of the gun, which he still clung to, tes
tifying the heroic pluck and calmness
of despair of the man to ultimate in
his discovery, for crossing the road he
placed his gun, a mute but eloquent
witness that his body was not far dis
tant. He must have realized the anxie
ty of his wife and brothers, and how
anxious they should be to explore the
woods to ascertain the history of his dis
was a little beyond the road. Several
stumps, standing on an angle with a log
invited him to shelter from the cold and
the frost of the night, for he must have
lived 40 or 50 hours. Here he rested.
Here he breathed his last, at what hour
the angels only know. Here
he was found lying a little
sideways, the left foot arched a little on
the right leg above the ankle, the body
otherwise in full length, and wounded
hand across his breast, the head thrown
back in repose,the hat closely drawn over
the eyes. . . j -
and the instances of struggle all around
betokeae a presence of mind. His own
fate, the alarm of friends, and, above
all, his wife and children, most have, in
rapid saccessIon,pas'sed in review,bnt,in-
6tead of paralizing the mind, it only
emboldened the soul of the sturdy man,
that if dead, and perhaps eaten by the
wolves, traces were left behind to prove
that death and he grappled, but
that death, as it always does, triumphed.'
: ALFRED OSIER; .' i ,
is one of five brothers, four of whom
have resided in Cheboygan. The deceas
ed with Chris, came here five years since
from Pottsdani, N. Y., where they were
born. Frank came here about fifteen
years and is very popular. Will
came here last year and returned to his
father a few weeks since.' They are re
spectable with several prominent con
nections by marriage. Alfred was 32
years old, a carpenter by trade. He
leaves a wife and three children, the old
est being seven and the yonugest child
two years of age.Q Cheerful, of good
humor, polite, honest, he leaves many
friends to regret his being cut down so
suddenly. The community is la deep
sympathy with the bereaved.
One of n party of Ohio gentlemen who
were deer hunting was up a tree watch,
lug for game, near the dead. He could
have,see it at a glance. Ouly when
found dhl he realize the whtrt tragedy .

Frank Osier aud Chris Osier tender

continued it until found. Grateful they

"Democrats rejoice, but with trem
bling for fear that while malaria Is
overcome that a worse trouble threatens
them in their opportunity to make a
record in Ohio on the liquor question,
and other matters," says the Cheboygan
Tribune, but there is no question as to
the Democratic position,; or the Demo , j
cratle record on the question , or prohU, ,
bition iu Ohio or , any other state. The ' '
Democracy oppose prohibition as they
oppose all legislation of a sentimental
nature, because It is impracticable, has
proved a failure wherever it has been '
attempted, and has never effected what
its advocates, have claimed for it In' re-
straining the liquor traffic toy City '
Call. . ' - ,' . . j
The Call uses the Democratic phrase kii
ology, so meaningless beyond mere comv4
plaint Findingfault with, prohibition, j
on 'excessive priuoiple, is not defining , a ,
positive attitude toward the liquor ques
tion. The Scott .law projected , in J
Ohio by Republicans . was a , :
mild license Iaw Democrats denounced
it. Many Democrats voted for prohi
bition, an insincere act, in keeping with
Democratic cunning, to secure votes for
lioadly.; In Maine, Democrats are pro-; ;
hibitionidts. Republicans gave- the
people in Ohio and Iowa the privilege of
declaring themselves ou this extreme ,
measure, but it has not been declared,
neither is it considered In any sense that
prohibition is a Republican party test.
