She left this port at 2 a.m. Friday, light for Whitehall, to load lumber and got within 10 miles of the latter port when the gale struck her, when in mid-lake Saturday evening, at half past six Gabriel Gabrielson, one of her crew was washed overboard by a heavy sea and drowned. he was about 29 years of age and resided at Whitehall, and leaves a widow and one child. The same sea that washed poor Gabrielson overboard also stove in the cabin windows and a portion of the bulwarks and washed overboard all the ropes which were on top of the cabin.
