Wasiuxotox, April 2. A sensation
al drowinpr affair occurred in the cast
em branch of the potoraac river yester
day afternoon. Irvinjf Lyles and .Miss
Chase Cantor were out rowing anil
when the boat was off Second street
people on shore saw them standing up
in the boat and apparently quarrelling.
In a few moments the boat upset ami
its occupants were strugg-linjr in the
water. From later developments i.
would appear that Lyles and Miss Can
tor when they stood up in the boad hud
hold of each other. Suddenly Miss
Canton released her grasp on Lyles,
and fell or jumped into the river.
Lyles followed her immediately as if
to rescue her.
They strutftfled together for a moment
and Miss Cantor disappeared. Lyles
caught hold of the boat which was a
large flat bottomed skiff, but despite
the shouts to hold on from the 'occu
pant of a boat rapidly nearing them,
he let go and sank. It is believed that
either Miss Cantor dragged Lyles down
with her or that when he realized that
she was drowning he purposely rel -.cd
his hold upon the bo.it and sank with
her. Lylcs was 20 years of age and
Miss Cantor about IS. They .were en
gaged to be married. They were both
members of the choir of Emanuel Epis
copal church of Anacosta and had par
