business manager of this paper, A. B. McEacheran - "Sam," as he was called by and known to all.

For nine days he suffered but very little pain, as everything known to medical skill and the art of nursing was applied Tuesday night the case assumed a serious
aspect and on Wednesday he was taken to the hospital. What followed has already been stated.
"Sam" learned the printer's trade in his home town in New Brunswick, later going to New York where he was employed three years. In 1898 he joined the great rush North, stopping at Skagway until 1900 when he became associated with A. M. Rousseau in founding the Whitehorse Star, with which he has ever since been connected.

A loving husband, a fond and indulgent father, a prince of a business partner, a noble, upright and honest man, who had not an enemy on God's footstool, has been called to his reward.
"God moves in a mysterious way,
His wonders to perform,"
