MURDERS - Our Victoria contemporaries state that a Scotchman
named Fisher, who belonged to the Sappers and Miners, and was
employed on the Boundary Commission under Col. Hawkins, was shot
by Bella Coola Indians near their settlement at Bentink Arm. They
also report the finding of the body of a miner on the beach, who,
having unfortunately been induced to take the Bentink route
from Cariboo, in all probability came to his end by Indians.
