In 1900, Arthur was witness to an accidental shooting in which a friend he was with used the butt of a rifle to move a boat into the bank of a creek. It discharged and wounded him in the thigh. The young man bled to death before reaching hospital. There is a fuller explanation in a newspaper report here.
