HE PULLED THE BOX. A Small Boy Summoned the Fire Department to Box 51.
Fire alarm box No. 51, at the corner of East Main and Aqueduct streets, was sounded shortly after 11 o’clock this morning. The box is one to which most of the fire companies respond, and they were on hand in a remarkably short time, only to find that there was no fire. In the meanwhile it was discovered that a small boy had pulled the box, which is one of the new kind, and can be pulled without the use of a key. The boy who was suspected was taken into custody. He gave his name as Walter COLLISTER and denied pulling the box, although several bystanders said he did pull it. At the police station the boy said it was his brother who pulled the box. They were together at the time, he said, and his brother stepped up and gave the handle of the box a pull, not thinking it would send in an alarm. An officer was sent to the boy’s house at 14 Prospect street to get the brother.
VAN VOORHIS ON THE SEA. The Ex-Congressman No Factor in the Present Political Campaign. Hon. John VAN VOORHIS left last night for a trip to Europe. He is subject to hay fever and finds it necessary to go away nearly every year to gain relief. After trying various resorts, he finds that an ocean trip and a stay in England and on the continent are the only sure relief until after the hay fever season is over when he can safely return.
It may be imagined that Mr. VAN VOORHIS also gives a sigh of satisfaction because he can leave the Republicans of Rochester to fight out their battles without him. He has been an embarrassed man for several weeks. With a knife up his sleeve for George W. ALDRIDGE, he found between him and his enemy the stalwart form of his bosom friend, H. H. EDGERTON. Mr. VAN VOORHIS cared nothing for CURRAN, but a great deal for EDGERTON. Revenge prompted him to help CURRAN in order to injure ALDRIDGE. Friendship demanded that he leave ALDRIDGE alone in order not to injure EDGERTON. The ex-congressman wavered and was still in doubt when the approach of the hay fever season showed him an avenue of graceful escape from the dilemma. He went away for an uncertain length of time. He won’t be back until the mayoralty campaign is at an end, so that he will be neutral in the fight, not injuring, even if he cannot help his friend, Mr. EDGERTON. KS
