CROSSED IN LOVE.
Miss Caroline 1". Marker Leaa Into
the Willamette River.
Disappointed in love and despondent,
Miss Caroline P. Harker ended her life
at 5 :30 last evening by jumping from
the Stark-street ferry into the waters of
the Willamette river.
She left her home at No. 153 Thir
teenth street about 4 o'clock yesterday
afternoon, leaving a note for her sister,
"I can't withstand the impulse.
She boarded the ferry at the West
Side approach, and walked nervously
up and down inside the north rail of
the ferry until a little past the mid
dle of the stream, when she leaped over
board. L. L. Flynn, an extraman in truck
company No. 7, who was on the boat,
was the first to collect himself and offer
assistance. Flynn jumped overboard
and caught the girl before she had sank.
He succeeded in holding her head out of
the water for several minutes, while a
rowboat from the shore was rapidly pro
ceeding to the rescue. While the row
boat was yet quite a distance from
them Flynn sank with the girl, but a
moment later arose, still holding to his
burden. Finally, however, becoming
exhausted, the body of the girl slipped
from hia clutches, and Flynn himself
was only saved by a man named Daniels
jumping from the rowboat and catching
him as he sank.
The body of the girl sank to the bot
tom, and although the rowboat was
kept in the vicinity for several minutes
it did not rise to the surface. Return
ing to the shore, a party with grap
pling irons went out, followed shortly
after by Hugh Brady, the most success
ful grappler in Portland. He grappled
from 6 o'clock to 10 last night without
success, and returned to the work
shortly after daylight this morning. At
8 :45 his efforts were rewarded and the
body of the unfortunate young lady was
recovered. The body was found within
a few yards of the spot where it sunk
the last time. One of the grappling
hooks caught in her hair, another in her
coat and one in her open umbrella,
which she still clutched in her hand.
The remains were brought to the west
shore and Coroner Hughes notified.
The body was at once removed to the
morgue where an inquest Vas held at 11
o'clock this morning.
Miss Harker was 22 years of age, and
was engaged to marry a gentleman re
aiding in California, named James T.
Burtchaell. Mr. Burtchaell was here
two years ago, but the young people
were not engaged until after that time.
Since about April 1st, Miss Harker has
been very nervous and melancholy.
The verdict waa to the effect that she
came to her death by drowning in the
Willamette river and that she com
mitted auicide in a fit of despondency.
There was no evidence before the jury
to justify an official censure of any one
on the ferry for not taking more active
measures to rescue the young lady.
