Mattila, Hjalmar Fri 13 Nov 1931 Fort William Daily Times Journal
Lying sick and unable to work, in a cabin near Finmark, loaned to him by a friend, Hjalmar Mattila was the victim of a fire which destroyed the residence sometime Tuesday, Provincial Police state as a result of investigation. The cause of the fire, or exact cause of the man's death probably will never be determined. When the tragedy was discovered by Waino Salo about four o'clock Wednesday afternoon, the ruins of the cabin were cold, except for a few tiny wisps of smoke, and the body of the man was charred to ashes. Mattila, who was 27, had been employed until about six weeks ago at the Moss Mines. His father, E. Mattila, and a friend, Laurie Wourela, also were working at the mine. The younger Mattila became ill, and Wourela gave him the use of his cabin, located on Lot 7, Con 3, Goldie township, so that he could rest and treat his ailment . All of the neighbors within three miles of the Wourela homestead were working on the road so Mattila had no one near him to whom he could turn if he required quick aid. Swinging along the trail from the road camp on his way to see if his home, located about a mile from the Wourela homestead, was all right, Waino Salo suddenly came upon the ruins of the cabin Wednesday afternoon. Upon investigation, he found the body in the ruins, and notified police. Constable H. Cole said Coroner J.W. Cook went to the scene Thursday morning and after investigating, ordered the body buried where it lay, in the ruins of the building. Nothing was found indicating any foul play. The authorities are inclined to regard the tragedy as a cause of accidental death.

Mrs. George McCall, who was injured in an automobile accident on the Hymers hill at 9 o'clock Sunday evening, died at 11 o'clock this morning at McKellar Hospital. Partial concussion of the brain and shock, were according to Dr. Spence, attending physician, the causes of death. The accident occurred when the brakes of the car which was being driven the hill leading out of Hymers, refused to hold near the top of the incline. The car, which besides containing Mr. and Mrs. McCall, held Mr. and Mrs. F.A. Holmes, and two children and Miss Ina McCall, moved backward down the hill. Mr. Holmes who was in the front seat, jumped from the car with the children and the Ford quickly gathering speed left the roadway and plunged backward down the hill. Although the ground is rough and covered with boulders, the car remained upright until it reached the bottom of the hill and was stopped by running into a culvert. The sudden jar caused Mrs.McCall to strike the back of her head against the rear edge of the tonneau seat. The party was picked up a few minutes after the accident by George Hymers who was following along behind them in a larger car, and were taken back to Hymers.

McCluskey, Clifford Jarvis Mon 26 Aug 1940 Fort William Daily Times Journal
Clifford Jarvis McCluskey, of Paipoonge township, was killed instantly before nine o'clock this morning when he fell 20 feet to the pavement of the International highway. He was working on a telephone pole when the pole broke off at the ground level. He was held to the pole by a safety belt which he was unable to loosen in the fall. The pole fell across one side of the body, crushing him. He would have been 29 years old next month. The accident occurred at the intersection of the International highway and the Tenth side road of Paipoonge Township, about one mile east of McCluskey's Corner. Members of the well-known McCluskey family of Slate River area, Clifford was employed in the removal of the north and south line of the Paipoonge municipal telephone system. The pole apparently had rotted in the ground. The young man was working at the top, 20 feet above the ground, releasing the telephone wire. The pole broke off with his weight and toppled down onto the pavement. The pole landed within two feet of Charles P. Bliss, operator of the telephone system, known as the Slate River Exchange and superintending the removal of the north and south line now suspended by a line running east and west through the township. Mr. Bliss was chatting with a friend who was passing by in an auto. Also at the scene and working with Clifford was an older brother Harry. An ambulance was called and arrived shortly after the mishap. Provincial Constable Kenneth Patterson also went to the accident scene. When the ambulance arrived the accident victim was passed medical attention. He is believed to have died instantly. He had been working for more than a month on the job of taking down the poles and wire of the old line. Another three or four days would have seen the work completed, Mr. Bliss had said this afternoon. Word of the tragedy travelled quickly through the rural area and the lakehead, and friends in both the cities and district were shocked at the news. Born in Oliver township, Clifford had moved to Paipoonge township nine years ago and had established a home on land about one quarter mile west of the McCluskey store, where is his parents reside. He was a member of the Anglican Church and also Fort William Orange Lodge No. 1093. He is survived by his widow, formerly Mabel Pettit, and two children, Joyce age 6, and Allan age four. Also surviving are his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Alex McCluskey, and six brothers. The brothers are Bernard, Harry, Roy, Almer, Harvey, all residing in the district here, and Percy, whose residence is with his parents at the store. Several aunts and uncles reside in Fort William and Port Arthur. Clifford was the youngest member of the family. The body is resting at the Blake Funeral Home pending completion of funeral arrangements.
