ABORIGINAL'S TRAGIC ADVENTURE Brisbane, Feb. 11. A sensational story of adventure on the part of 22 aboriginals, five of whom, it is feared, have perished, has been received by the Commis sioner of Police from the police offi cer at Thursday Island. It appears the aboriginals form part of the pearling crews of sev eral pearling interests, and deserted in four dinghys. They encountered adverse seas and tides, and one of the dinghya was swamped. An other had previously been abandon ed, and a number of the men then attempted to swim a distance of ten miles in waters which in one place are infected with alligators. The police party, while searching the coast, came across four men who had landed from the dinghy. The fugitives made off, but were pursued, and three were captured. The fourth man escaped. This left 18 still to be accounted for. A fur ther search df the island was made, and fourteen of the deserters were found wandering about in the serub. One who previously escaped was among...
