Two Drownings at Paterson

PATERSON, N. J., June 21.--Two drowning accidents happened in this city to-day. Patrick White, seventeen years old, was bathing in the river near Morlot's dye works and was seized with cramps. Claude Mauzy, twenty years, undertook to swim across the fiver above Lincoln's Bridge, and became exhausted before he reached the eastern bank. He sank within sight of his companions.
