: Butte. : ' . DROWNED IN THE YUKON. jj '.Correspondence Intermountain Catholic.) I Dutte, Mont., Nov. 2S. On Oct. 5, Tom and Dan MeNamara' left " their home at 1429 North Main street. Waikerville, to join their two brothers, John and Michael, who are working rk h property at Dawson, N. W. T. ' : Before plaiting-., both young "men I received hoiy communion and made I every.- spiritual preparation necessary . I for their hazardous trip. The brothers j left Seattle on Oct. 7, on the steamer ! : Topeka,' and departed over the pass I , 1mm Skagway on the 12th. They Mere lat heard of hv- letter! i from White Horse, under date of Oct. '. 35, staling thai on the following day j ihoy would take passage on the. Vilio I Krvin and li".-pe,l to reach Dawson J.y j t on. The young men promised to I i wrv mvu iiioiner irom .Dawson on i their arrival. .?o if, delayed, would i doubtless- have risked almost anything .) to reneh a wire and thus relieve the anxiety of those at home. As the days passed end no telegram came the nuxiety of mother and sisters became I disircrflrtr and reached a climax on the f morning of Nov. 24, when a dispatch jj appeared in a daily paper stating that ? live people had been drowned in the 1 Yuknn about sixty miles from Dawson I f and that the MeNamara brothers of j i Butte were beheved to be among the s i -.umber. Mr. W. H. Merrirnan, a friend of the family here, wired to Seattle" for particulars and received the following message in reply: ' Seattle. Nov. 25. 1SP9. To W. H. Merriman, Butte: Tour; wire slenjlay no one seems to k'nnw full names of MeNamara Brothers . drwiied in the Yukon. : ; We can get no definite information , ( xi t ) t that they were brothers and j ! r!;i-y with two women and another I v'HU were drowned accident happened sifter the people who lx-ought the j tifu s had passed the place where the 'I accident occurred ' and l.honly , in-for- J niation ohtninr-d was by telegraph U through the operator at.

I Tracers have been sent from Seattle but may not be heard from for weeks. I The disconsolate mother and sorrow-"I sorrow-"I ing sisters cling to the ray of hopo i? that the drowned men may be others 'j than their loved ones. ' ' j; As the boys left the rapids nearly one month before the drowning it is ) possible" that they may have reached some landing in safety but are unable to communicate with any point.- i It does not seem possible that a party of five persons could start on a six day journey and be missing for so 1 ' long a time without the fact being dis- : covered. In this- rests the hope that the dispatch refers to some other. Mc-I Mc-I Namara brothers. : 1 A Seattle- paper states that the I drowning took place on the Yukon I above Ogilvie. Two reports are given ! as to the manner of the accident. , One is that the party sought to board a scow bound for Dawson and r-that floating ice swept down upon dhem and capsized their boat. Another- is that all were on the scow., which - .cot caught in the ice and sank. The dead j are. two MeNamara brothers; ' f Kelly; Mrs. Drumbolton, .and Mrs. itubdall." . . '- I Besides their mother.

Nov.. four years ago and are highly respected by l, all S who know them. 'Dan.' the younger of i K missing men. was a bright, ener- getic young fellow of 23 years. His j ambition was to educate himself for one (if the professions, j Thomas MeNamara, the eider, was years of age, and a widower. His wife died in Virginia City, New, about ! two years ago. He leaves three orphan children with his mother and I sisters. Their ages are ::. 5 and 8 I curs. Since her sons departure, Mrs. j MeNamara has m ved to 022 Maryland avenue, Butte, where she at present resides. On Nov. 27. Mrs. MeNamara received re-ceived lettcis fnm her sons in Dawson I under date of Oct. G and 8. They speak I very brightly of their prospects and ! - are all icady to receive their brothers. The letter?" state that those letters j 1 would likely be tha last mail to leive j ! Dawson tlos season. The same boat j I that lirought down these letters brought the news of the drowning- to the bereaved family. The Y. L. I. Exception.
