FOUR SOLDIERS DROWNED. A boating accident, entailing the loss of four lives on Sunday, is reported from Queenstown. Four gunners of the Royal Artillery, named Barrett, Browne, Croyan, and Friend, who have been stationed at Fort Westmoreland, took their departure from the island on Sunday after- noon, about four p.m., in a small boat, and rowed in the direction of Fort Carlisle, some two miles distant, to meet a number of comrades. They reached their destination safely, and left again at 9.30 on their return journey. They did not, how- ever, arrive, and on Tuesday one body was dis- covered lying on the strand at Whitogate. A vigilant search resulted in the discovery of the boat lying bottom-upwards at Cork Beg, the island home of Sir R. U. Penrose Fitzgerald. M.P. Telegraphing later, a Queenstown correspondent states that Corporal McCarthy, of the Royal Artillery, had re- ceived information at the garrison office, Queenstown, that the first body recovered bad been identified, and that two more bodies were also recovered close to the scene of the accident. Their names are Croyan, Barrett, and Browne, and the other one, who is still missing, is named Friend. The bodies have been sent to Carlisle, where the inquest will be held. Barrett belongs to Killorglin. and Croyan is a native of Blackrcek, co. Cork. Barrett, who had seen much service, wore the Egyptian and two good conduct medals. Croyan and Browne were also possessed of good conduct medals.
