But what if there was a third survivor? Tommy Smith is an orphan, working atthe stables in Collingwood, Ontario. A bit of a mischievous boy, who sometimessteals to get warmer clothes, he witnesses the president of the shippingcompany, his henchman, and a shareholder arguing, an argument that results inthe shareholder’s death. Unfortunately for Tommy, he is discovered. In hiseffort to get away from the president’s henchman, Harry Jones, he sneaksaboard the Asia. Tommy miraculously survives, and is found washed up on shore bytwo natives, who care for him for six months or so, before taking him to thetown of Midland. There, Tommy reads the papers and discovers he is being blamedfor the death of the shareholder and that he is also presumed dead.
