FISHING- BOAT DISASTER, I One of the most seriOtfS 8ccidents that have over taken the St. Andrews fishing boats for many years occurred on Monday afternoon about halt- past 4, resulting in the drowning of five persons. The weather on Monday was bright, but a stormy north-easterly wind blew with heavy squalls at tiipes; the St. Aiidrewi; fishing boats, however, worked in the bay, and all returned home in safety, with the exception of the yawl belonging to James Gourlay Grieve. It is surmised that the boat, which was carrying full sail, was caught In a sudden squall and had filled and sunk. Seeing that the beat had disappeared, and no signs of it could be observed near where it was last seen, the worst forebodings were entertained. The alarm was at cnee given, and five fishing ooats put off from the shore. Several fishermen, noticing the disappearance of the boat. iaimedi- afely put out from the harbour. They discovered the yawl, but lID trace of the crew could be seen except several caps floating in the water. The yawl was taken in tow and brought to the West sands, where it was beached. The names of those who are drowned are James Gourlay Grieve, shipper, married, with a family of five; two of his sons, Fred Gourlay, 17, and Bruce Gourlay, 16; Alex. Burns Slater, 36, married, with a family of five and Alex. Greig Slater, a young lad 15 years of age. James Grieve was for many years coxswain of the Boarhilis lifeboat, and several years ago distinguished himself by his bravery at the wreck of the Francis, of Drammon, and was specially recognised by the Norwegian Govern"¡' mcnt. The disaster naturaUy created great excite- ment on Monday night in St. Andrews, and much sympathy was expresn?d for the rülatives of hOSÐ who had so suddenly perished.
