MOBILE TUG BOAT
CAPTAIN DROWNED
THOMAS BENTON ONE OF THE
BEST KNOWN CAPTAINS IN
THE PORT FELL OVER
BOARD
1
Mobile Jan 9 The Item says
Captain Thomas Benton one of the
widest known tugboat captains in the
port was drowned at an early hour
last night in Mobile bay between the
mouth of Fish river and Mullet Point
He was on the tugboat Eleanor com
ing to this city with a barge in tow
The crew of the boat missed him from
the pilot house and a search of the
tug was made but without success
The supposition is that he accidentally
fell overboard while standing near the
rail and went down before any of the
crew knew that he was drowned
Captain Benton had been in the em
ploy of Lyons Swift of Bon Secour
for many years and he was held in
high esteem by every one who knew
him The news of bis untimely death
was received with regret this morning
The dead captain was a jolly fellow
and was open hearted and kind to
every one
The flags on the pilots office and lit i
the tugboats are flying at half mast i
today out of respect to the well known
captain and master I
Captain Benton was fifty years of
age and is survived by his wife anl
several children
