THE DEATH OF ROBERT SHIELDS
Robert SHIELDS, who died on
Monday last, was one of the oldest residents of Rochester, being 90
years of age at the time of his death. He was familiar with the
early history of Rochester, having come here when quite a young man.
He was a clothing cutter and saw the business grow from small
beginnings to its present colossal proportions. He built in East
avenue when that portion of the city was woods and commons. He was
one of the oldest exempt firemen in Rochester, and often told
anecdotes of the fires he attended when the department was but
poorly equipped. He had seven children, one only of whom survives,
Mrs. Col. John McMAHON of this city. He enjoyed good health to the
last, and was about until within a few days of his death. He was
much respected. His funeral will be held from his late residence,
with Henry C. TAILLEE, No. 6 Hanover street, to-morrow at 2:30 p.m.
WILLIAM BUCKHOLZ DEATH
Evidence Taken on the
Inquest at Brighton To-Day
Coroner GRAHAM convened the
inquest in the case of Wm. BUCKHOLZ, whose body was found in the
canal near lock 63, in Temperance Hall, Brighton, at 10 a.m. to-day.
George J. BENDER of Rochester testified that he buried BUCKHOLZ, and
that there were cuts over the eye and back of head, and bruise on
the left arm. The cuts might have been from books.
William FREER, tender at lock 63, Brighton, said he saw BUCKHOLZ on
the towpath east of the lock about 2 a.m. Sunday, May 17th. He
inquired if the grocery was open and on receiving a negative answer
went west along the towpath.
Andrew JOHNSON of Brighton saw BUCKHOLZ on Monroe avenue, near the
bridge, about midnight May 16th. Two men were standing talking with
him. JOHNSON did not stop. BURKHOLZ appeared to be intoxicated. The
two with BUCKHOLZ were strangers to the witness.
Peter FLEGER of Brighton, the next witness, corroborated JOHNSON's
testimony, JOHNSON and he were returning from Rochester.
Miller HORTON of Brighton, lock tender of 63, testified that he
thought he heard BUCKHOLZ trying to wake John BURLEY, the grocer, to
get a drink. BURLEY however, refused to respond to his request.
John BURLEY, who keeps a grocery and saloon on the towpath in
Brighton, near lock 63, saw BUCKHOLZ alive at 4 p.m., May 16th, at
Brighton Corners. He was coming from the north. He was not in the
saloon that day to BURLEY's knowledge. He had been there one day
during the week. He bought neither groceries nor drink. He stayed
about half an hour. "The only thing he ever bought in the line
of groceries from me was a piece of pork. He has drunk ale in my
place. I never saw him drink whiskey. I never saw him full in my
place or anywhere. I have known BUCKHOLZ ten or twelve years. I have
heard BUCKHOLZ was a drinking man. I never had a drunken row in my
place. I know of no one who has any ill will against BUCKHOLZ. He
was a quiet, inoffensive man. I close my saloon at 12 o'clock every
D. MANNING saw BUCKHOLZ alive May 16th, about 7:30 p.m., on the
street car bound for Rochester. I got off at St. Paul street;
BUCKHOLZ went on.
John CORTEVILLE saw BUCKHOLZ alive the evening of May 16th in a
saloon on Front street. He was eating a sandwich and drinking a
glass of something - the witness did not know what. BUCKHOLZ was not
intoxicated when witness saw him.
William EICHHORST, brother-in-law of BUCKHOLZ, last saw deceased
alive the evening of May 17th. He was standing in front of BURLEY'S
on the tow path. Witness did not know how long BUCKHOLZ had been
standing there. BUCKHOLZ did not seem to be under the influence of
Mrs. BUCKHOLZ, wife of the dead man, testified to going with her
husband to Rochester the evening of May 16th, and buying some things
for the house. She left her husband in the city behind her and never
saw him again alive.
After hearing several more witnesses, who gave unimportant
testimony, the jury rendered a verdict of accidental drowning.
There seems to be an idea abroad in Brighton that BUCKHOLZ met his
death by foul play, but no evidence was adduced at the inquest to
bear out such an opinion.

will return to Wheatland and begin preparations for their journey to
Alaska, where Mr. WARNE has a government commission and also one
from the Presbyterian Board of Missions to teach. Mrs. WARNE will
prove an efficient co-worker and helpmate in this far-away field of
labor, as she has had considerable experience as a teacher and has
been actively engaged in church work as a member of the Scottsville
Presbyterian Church and at other places. Rev. Mr. BRISTOL, of

interspersed was of finest quality, particularly Mrs. J. H. SNOW's
lullaby solo, and the duet sung by Mesdames BRIGGS and HARRIS.
Something over $20 was realized as profits of the occasion for
W. C. T. U. work.

WILLIAM BUCHOLZ'S DEATH
Alleged Rumors of Foul
Play Not Supported at the Inquest
Nothing was brought out
at the coroner's inquest yesterday in the case of William BUCHOLZ,
whose body was found in the Erie canal near lock No. 63 last
Thursday, to substantiate the theory that BUCHOLZ was foully dealt
with. The inquest was held at Temperance Hall in Brighton and was
conducted by Coroner GRAHAM.
Mrs. BUCHOLZ testified that she came to Rochester with her husband
on the evening of May 16th. After making some purchases she
returned home leaving him in the city. That was the last she saw
of her husband alive.
E. M. HORTON, the locktender, said that BUCHOLZ came down the
tow-path late Saturday night in an intoxicated condition and
attempted to arouse John BURLEY, a saloon keeper, near the lock.
BURLEY refused to let him in and BUCHOLZ declared that he would go
back to the city after another drink. The jury gave a verdict of
death by drowning, under unknown circumstances.
