in Crab Creek.
Jordan, an ironworker, of Sharon, was drowned in Crab Creek, near
Youngstown, early Sunday morning, presumably while intoxicated. The
Vindicator says it is supposed that Jordan was walking along the Lake
Shore railroad siding occupied by a draft of cars and lost his footing and
fell into the creek bed below, a distance of 20 feet His jaw was fractured
in several places and the side of his face badly lacerated. Jordan had
been in Sharon, Saturday, and left for Youngstown in the afternoon. He
displayed a roll of bills in the latter place amounting to $25. When found
there was $1.85 in his pockets. The coroner is investigating the case.
