Expect the Smith Photographs to Reach Belleville on Monday

Secretary George Dulmage Believes Dead Man was former Bellevillian The photography of the late captain John Smith are not yet in Belleville but should be on Monday. A long distance call to Horrah Oklahoma yesterday elicited the information that good photographs had been secured of the dead man in that they are already in the mail. The body has been buried. Horace Smith is still in this city and will likely remain until Monday. He left Mrs Birds home, 67 South Church Street, last Thursday with the intension of going to Toronto but failed to carry out his plans.

Mr George Dulmage, secretary of Moira Lodge, who is keeping in close touch with Horrah Mason's says that there is only one year's discrepancy between the date of captain Smiths disappearance from his wrecked vessel and the arrival of the Smith in the Oklahoma home city. Mr. Ben Wilson master of the Harrah Lodge says the dead man appeared there first in 1916 but this may easily be an error in memory.

A Kingston man, prominent in marine matters has stated that in his belief Captain Smith was not on the George E. Marsh when she foundered when she left Sodus Point.
