The Demise of John Doherty
John Doherty succumbed to his injuries, received while at work on February 28th in the Nettie L. Mine, this morning. such was the sad news conveyed to Fergusonians on Friday morning. Everything in man and money's power was done to ave him, but the shock was fatal as the poor suffering man seemed to realize. the expressions of sympathy and bereavement were many and haertfelt. Mr. Doherty had not an enemy in the camp, and was respected by all.
All the miners at the Nettie L. laid off as soon as the word reached them, to attend the funeral of their late foreman, who was thought the world of by all his comrades. He was a man among men, whose honest and upright qualities endeared him not only to his immediate comrades, but to everyone in the camp.
He was at all times respected and loved by his many social and business acquaintances and friends, and his untimely death is deeply regretted by all. The EAGLE can only extend its sincere sympathy to his poor old lone mother in Ireland in her sad loss, and may peace that passeth all knwledge and understanding be with and sustain her in this sad afflication. His death has created a void in this camp which the long lapse of time can alone efface.
The funeral, the first in the district, took place at 10 a.m. on Saturday from the residence of Frank Thomas Abey(1875-1947) at Trout Lake, when nearly everyone in the camp paid their respects by following the remains to their last resting place, Rev. Father Thayer of Revelstoke, conducting the burial rites.
NOTE: F.T. Abey was the druggist at Trout Lake City. The mine is commonly known as the Nettie L. mine, but really it is the Nettie Lee Mine.
Wow, unbelievable how a river can be cleaned within a city. Wonderful!!!
Here in Brazil, the rivers are used for storage of sewage and garbage, revolting.
