INDIAN 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.
