George Stevens Drowning in 1901

As a point of interest, the information below is from a newspaper article from the Semi-Weekly Klondike Nugget:
A Watery Grave – Drowning in the Yukon and Alaska by Murray Lundberg.
Early October 1901, Tracy Roberson, of Seattle and Capt. George Stevens, of the steamer “ Prosper”, were drowned at Nome while trying to land from the Abbie M. Deering. They had been warned by friends on the schooner against making the attempt in rough seas and high winds. The bodies were washed up on the beach the next day.
Does anyone have any additional info. on this incident
