Wednesday afternoon June 4th, about half past four o'clock, near Zed Wilson's saw mill, as Dan Waugh and Hugh Campbell, engaged in sawing in two a large tree which they had just felled and stripped of its branches, and had just completed dividing it, the former stepped back to avoid coming in contact with a portion of it, but unfortunately his foot became entangled in underbrush and he fell and the log rolled over his entire body, inflicting such injuries that the suffering victim died before medical attention could reach him, although Dr. Robinson, who had been at once sent for, arrived within less than half an hour after the accident.

Deceased was a Nova Scotian by birth, and was only about twenty-three years of age, and had been but little more than one year in the Territory.

He was interred on June 5th, at 4 p.m., from Randall's undertaking establishment.
