There is no longer any question concerning the identity of the remains found floating at the mouth of West Point Creek last week. They were those of John Anderson, a native of Sweden, who had been in the employ of the Frank Tanning Company for nearly three years. Of late he had drank considerably and, no doubt, he wandered away while intoxicated and was drowned. His daughter, who is a domestic at San Leandro, positively identified the remains and the coroner's jury bought a verdict accordingly. The remains were interred in Union Cemetery, at the expense of his fellow workmen at the tannery.
