LOST SONS' CANOE
Only Hope Now IsThat Brown and
Jordan Were Picked Up
Keyport, N J., April 1 Thoina? I'.
Jordan and Police Berg-tat Edmund
Brown, of Brooklyn, came hero to-day
and identified a canoe as the craft in
which their t-ons had left Bath Beach
last Sunday. Their only hope now is
that the youths were picked up by
eome outgoing vessel. Lift-saving sta?
tions and revenue I utters, however,
ha\e been askexl to watch for bodies.
The canoe was washed ashore at
Union, a suburb of Kejpot't, last Mon?
day and was pi? ked up by t.'harles
A? ker at a point about thirty miles
from Bath Beach, whence Thomas
Jordan, of No. 14?) T.'ith street. Brooklyn,
and Clarence, Brown ventured on Sun?
day in the teeth of a dangerous squall.
Nothing has been beard from the boys
since then, and Acker was in ignorance
that the canoe he picked up had prob?
ably lost two lives on lis way across
from Bath Beach to the Jersey shore.
A newspaper story of the probable
death of the canoeists attracted Acker's
attention, and he sent r registered let?
ter to Mr. Jordan. The latter onmmu
nteatOd with Sergeant Brown at the
Fort Hamilton station, and to-day the
two fathers arrived lure.
The'young victims of the overturned
canoe were employed by the New York
Life insurance Company. Jordan was
also studying law at a night school.
