Remains of Another Drowning Victim Were Taken From The Red River South of the South Bridge Early This Morning—Is A Stranger Here

The remains of a man, who has been identified as Hans Anderson with address unknown, were taken from the Red river early this morning. The body was found at the foot of Third Street south, south of the south bridge.

As far as can be learned, Anderson had been in the city but a few days and stopped at the Doodge Bug annex on lower Front street. When last seen last night, he was in an intoxicated condition, his face was bleeding and he was heading towards the river. It is supposed that he fell asleep on the bank and rolled into the water. The watch on his person stopped at 9 o'clock.

Very little is known of Anderson or where he came from. He was probably one of the transient laborers that start to arrive in the city about this time of the year. He is about 40 years of age, weighing about 160 pounds and standing some 5 feet 8 inches tall. One finger on his right hand is missing and through this the officials hope to trace him.

The remains are now at the undertaking parlors of B. F. Wasem awaiting their disposition.
