p.3 A Veteran Pilot Dead - Death has removed one of the first settlers at Portage-du-Fort in the person of James Coyne, who for upwards of a quarter of a century piloted the boats of the Union Forwarding Co. on the Chats Lake. The deceased was an Irishman with the qualities of the Canny Scot, sober, keen and attentive to whatever he had on hand. He retained the confidence of his employers throughout the long period. His death took place on Monday morning last. [Pembroke Observer]
