Further particulars in regard to the disappearance of Major Jackson show that the steward of the steamer (Hartley) obtained his passenger ticket from him at 7.30 on Saturday evening. Major Jackson was then dozing in the smoking room. At ten o’clock Kerr, the bedroom steward, went to Major Jackson’s bunk in order to see that the cabin porthole was properly secured ; but he heard someone (presumably the major) sleeping in the berth, and did not disturb him. This was the last sign of the unfortunate gentleman. Next morning, at six o’clock, the bedroom steward went to the berth Again to get the occupant’s boots to have them cleaned, but ho found the cabin empty. He thought nothing of the matter, believing that Major Jackson had dressed and gone on deck. About two hours later Major Jackson was missed by the steward, and a thorough search of the ship was made, but without success. The cause of Major Jackal’s mysterious disappearance remains a profound mystery. He leaves a wife but no children.
