Last Sunday morning about
7 o'clock the launch Alert with
Captain Ernest Steers, Clarence
Williams, Elmer Perkins, Peter
Hull, James Taylor, 1 and Peter
Johnson aboard left Ketchikan
in search of the Francis R., un
fortunates. At ahout 2 o'clock
of the same day they encountered
some extremely rough weather
in Behm Canal, just off Point
Alva. One heavy sea lifter an
other struck the boat broadside,
kept it at an extreme list until
the water corning in at an open
port hole and over deck filled it
up to the extent that the engine
stopped and the only escape for
the six men aboard was by a
row boat they wee towing,
which after some effort was!
brought alongside and baled out.
Five of the men embarked in the
boat they were towing, while
Captain Steers took to a small
flat bottom skiff, which capsized
with him, and owing to the
rough weather, the other five
men, with only one pair of oars,
experienced great difficulty in
getting to him. On reaching
the beach, a deserted Indian cab
in was found, where a fire was
started, and after spending Sun
day night in the 'cabin, the six
men rowed to Hoe Point, leaving
the scene of the accident about
7:30 Monday morning, and arriv
ing at Roe Point about 10:30 a.
m. of the same day. On leaving
the scene of the accident, only a
small portion of the mast of the
Alert was to be seen above the
The launch Berlin' arrived in
Ketchikan yesterday evening
with the six men, and early to
day preparations were being
made to go back to the scene
with the launch Spray, in the
hope that the ill fated boat
could be found.
In preparing and finally leav
ing the boat, Captain Steers
thought only of the safety of his
companions. He would not get
into the boat with the other five
men, thinking that it would be
too manv. and rather than to
subject the whole party to the
mercy of the rough weather, he
took the - small flat bottomed
skiff, which soon papsized with
him and after his companions
came up to him he still preferred
to take his chance in the water
with his upturned boat, and give
the rest of the party a better
chance of "getting to the beach.
' Captain Steers is to be highly
! praised for his act ih thinking
first of his fellow men and leav
