KERR CO. .....RESIDENT MANAGER Toronto, May Dawson City correspondent of The Mail and Empire In a letter telling of the trip of Cor- poral Dempster and his three com ions', who found the bodies of the ill- fated Mounted Police party led by In- spector Fitzgerald, and comprising Constables Kinney. Carter and Taylor, i 11, who were lost some months ago. de- clares that the common opinion in Daw son j? that the Fitzgerald party were lost because of not having an acquaintance with the co.untry and not taking a native guide; and that they perished on the return trip for want of proper equipment for hunting small game. "It now says the writer, "that the Fitzgerald party not only were shy of supplies on starting, but had hoped to make speed by handkerchief over his face. vvx-..

With such a gun they might have killed suf- ficient ptarmigan daily. The party consumed fifteen dogs. Some of the dogs, of course, went to the other dogs. Perhaps Poisoned "At the camp thirty-five miles from MacPherson on the return were found two dog harnesses. Were the men well enough at that point they should have been able to make the finish with the meat of two dogs. But they may have' been reduced and footsore, and probably poisoned from eating dog's liver. Something in their diary, found far back, said the men had become nauseated, and it was supposed to have been dog's liver which was the cause. Desperate Fight "Although the temperature was low and the trail unbroken, the cold and snow probably bothered the men little compared to the want of food. The i desperate fight to the finish shows the men held out against odds that make them heroes to every northerner. "The Dempster party carried three guns, one of which was a shot iiad. all the birds they body was a few feet from where they had built a fire. The men had climbed a little hill for the last camp.
