Recover First Body From Raging River

WEAVERVILLE (Trinity Co.) April 19.—The first body to be recovered from the treacherous waters of the south fork of the Trinity river was that of Jesse Wise of Eureka, who was drowned Saturday. His body was recovered yesterday morning.

Many drowning accidents have occurred in the Trinity river, but the memory of the oldest residents fail to cite an instance in which the body has been recovered.  The remains of Wise were badly battered by the raging waters and rocks of the river, and for this reason Coroner Wallace ordered immediate burial.
