We much regret having to announce the passing of Mr. A.G Bruce at the
local hospital which occurred on Tuesday whilst he was asleep.
In the passing of Mr. Bruce Whitehorse loses one who has resided in this community for many years.
In the early days he was in the Kootenay country and many years ago came in from Ashcroft over seldom trodden trails into the Yukon, being employed on construction work when the telegraph line was laid into this territory. When the stampede took place into Bullion creek in 1903 he was among those who left to try his luck with no particular success.
The late Mr. Bruce was of a pleasing personality and possessed a retiring
disposition. On November 12th last he celebrated his 86th birthday. He was a familiar figure around town and known to young and old alike in this community. His passing is a distinct loss which will be mourned by a large number of friends.
The funeral took place at 2 p.m. today. Mr. G. C. Dingle, in the absence
of a resident clergyman at the present time, reading the burial service of the Church of England.
