On the morning of May 18 Harry
Jeffries, formerly of Winnipeg, but of
late residing at Seattle, perished from
cold and exposure in the channel near
Iceberg point, near Richardson. It
seems that Jeffries, in company with
one John Kelly, had started from
Roche Harbor to Seattle, in a small
sailboat. When near Richardson a
squall struck the boat.capsizing it. Both
men clung to the boat, and as they
drifted by a reef Jeffries stripped him
self, with the idea of swimming to
it. He gave this up, but in his
attempt he became so chilled that he
died about*7 o'clock in the morning, or
at about the time they were picked up
by the tug Beaver. They were upset
about 3 o'clock in the morning. Jeffries
was about 18 years old.
On Thursday morning last a boat
containing three persons was pulled in
to a little bay on this side of Shaw isl
and, near Theodore Tharold's home,and
after the men got considerable
shooting was : heard by Mr. - Tharold
and ' Charles Tift, who went tto the
water front to : see what ; was up. Mr.
Tharold went out onto a point, and as
soon as the men saw - him they shot at
him, but he thought nothing of it in
particular until he left them and went
out onto i another £ point, : nearer the
strangers, when he called to them and
asked what they were doing Vi He says |
I that one of the men stepped behind; a
tree, ] raised 1 his rifle ? and deliberately
shot at him, when he considered it
as being time sto v get out of that, and
went bick to his house. He did not
know any of them and is at a loss to
kSow?heir purpose in dicing their
shots at him. Such men should be ar
rested and dealt with severely. . . . -
Thompson Bros, expect to have their
new steamer, the Auce G«rtrude,j on
this run by Monday next and will
keeD her here for a month or so, or
until the steamer Lydia Thompson can
be overhauled, painted and ***«} «P "J
fine style. For the past month the
people of this county have had toput
ud with a few inconveniences, oocas
toned by break-downs.it is true, but
they must remember that these trou
ble? cost *he owners large sums of
money and are not at all Pjf*f nt for
them. And again, boate Jhat could
make the run for her are net to be had
at any reasonable price, every boat on
the Sound having all it can do. The
people of this county should not fail to
give credit to whom credit is due, and
most certainly this company deserve it.
For four years they have given us the
best : service on the Sound, and as : a
mail steamer, the Lydia Thompson has
lost less trip and made more mileage
than any boat on Puget Sound, save
one, The Flyer, running between Seat
tle and Tacoma. It: has been a com
mon saying, when a person looked at
his timepiece, "It is time we heard the
Thompson's whistle," and in almost
every instance she would not miss by
very many minutes. There are few
railroads that give a better service.
The worst luck we can wish them is
that Thompson Bros', new boat will
serve them as well. The next time the
Lydia is a few hours late don't kick,
but remember the past. Her future
will be just as good, as soon as she un
dergoes her overhauling.
