Ed Scott, a Negro who had been employed by Mr. Ed Johnson at Bon Terra Farms for the past two years, drowned Sunday in the East Coast Canal near the freight dock at that place.

It seems that Scott was some­what intoxicated and had lost a pair of ice hooks which he thought had dropped from the boat in which he was in into the canal. He made an attempt to dive for the hooks but never came up according to witnesses that saw him, and it is believed that his physical condition at the time was the cause of his drowning.

Scott's body was not found until Monday afternoon after several hours had been spent in dragging the bottom of the canal.
