Death ' of Two Colored Citizens by
Floating: Under a Scow.
George Washington Turner and hi9
wifej well known colored -people of The
Dulles, who have been in the laundry
business for some time.were drowned
about 4 o'clock: yesterday afternoon.
With another colored man known as
Jenkins, they had been fishing above
the rapids. They had hauled in their
sturgeon line, getting about 300 pounds
of fish, which was deposited in the bot
tom of the boat along with a . salmon
they had procured. In the boat, also,
was their dog, a small yellow pug. Jen
kins, who was the only survivor of the
occupants of the boat, and .who" is the
only living witness of the tragic occur
rence, tells the following particulars.
The boat, after receiving its load of fish,
was rowed down over the rapids, and
was heading directly for the bow
of ' Davis' scow, - which is anchored
across the river about a mile and a half
distant, Jenkins who is a proficient
oarsman, saw the danger, and shouted
to Turner to row with his shore oar.
Turner was nnskilled in the nee of oars,
and becoming frightened, accidentally
knocked out Jenkins' oarlock with his
oar. There remained one other lock on
that side of the boat, but this also was
in some manner knocked out' through
the hurry and agitation of Turner. In
another moment the boat had drifted
to the scow and was at once submerged
with all its occupants, except - Jenkins.
By standing up in the boat be in some
manner grasped a ehore line which helps
fasten the fish boat steadily in the river,
and climbed, hand over hand to it.
But Turner and his wife sank to rise no
more. Their four-footed companion al
so drowned with them.
The small boat came up a short dis
tance down the river badly batterred
and a greet hole stove in its side near
the bottom, but it was tenantless. The
current flows very swift where the acci
dent occurred, and it is scarcely prob
able the bodies will be found, though
efforts have been made today to do bo.
Turner was a son of Mrs. Whitaker,
who died hot long ago at the Portland
hospital; ' '
Turner and Jenkins had but just
formed a partnership in the sturgeon
fishing bussness and this was their
first day's work fishing. ' Mrs. Turner
had expressed a wish to go out with
them in the boat, a"hd had almost been
dissuaded by friends to whom she tstd
spoken, but ' unfortunately their advice
had not prevailed. '- She was the first to
sink out of sight beneath the scow,
holding her dog in her arms. Her hus
band, followed directly. , s
In the boat was a "sturgeon weighing
250 pounds. The same sturgeon was re
covered this morning and brought to the
express office. . The sturgeon lines and
hooks were lost.
Mr. H. Herbrihg, who is now in New
York, has just sent to Mr. Carl Gott
fried 'specimens' of the new issues of (1,
$2 and $5 bills, issued according to the
act of August 4, 1S96. They are by far
the handsomest "greenbacks" ever is
sued by. the government, and remind
one of the. artistic Columbian stamps is
sued, during 1893. The one-dollar bill
has a central picture entitled "History
Instructing Youth," representing a wo
man pointing a youth to a panoramic
view of Washington City, with the
Washington monument and the Poto
mac river in the foreground. Around
the picture are grouped twenty-three
illustrious names, each in a laurel
wreath, famous in science, art, poetry
literature,, statesmanship or ' warfare.
On the reverse side are large "portraits
of George and Martha Washington.
The $2 bill represents "Science pre
senting steam and electricity to com
merce and manufacture." Here the
five characters are again impersonated
by beautiful women and youths.
"Electricity" has a, wire-enveloped
armature in his hand, while "Steam"
controls a iever attached to machinery.
On the reverse 'side are excellent like
nesses of Morse, the inventor of telegra
phy, and Fulton, of steamboat fame.
The $5 bill has a central figure of
great beauty, which is unnamed. "Col
umbia," standing upon that part of the
globe allotted to the United States, holds
aloft an electric light, while another
female figure at her feet has a horn to
her lips. On the left appears fierce
browed War driving a chariot, her right
band hurling thunderbolts, her left
holding the reins of her horses. At the
left of the picture ife an angel, above
whose head flutter a number of. doves.
On the opposite side are the familiar
faces of Grant and Sheridan.
A suite of rooms, nicely furnished.
suitable for two students, centrally lo
cated below the bluff. For particulars
