ARRESTED FOR ASSAULT
The notorious Tom
COLLINS, who is a shoemaker by trade, but whose occupation
is that of hanger-in in the low Bowery resorts, was again
placed behind the bars last night. About 10:15 o'clock the
lusty cries of Patrick J. CURTIS called Officer HETZLER to
the corner of Front and Mumford streets. The man said that
he and COLLINS had become embroiled in a difficulty, and
that the other man had struck him. He asked the officer to
arrest him, and HETZLER sent COLLINS to headquarters in a
patrol wagon. CURTIS and Hugh DOUGHERTY, who claims to have
witnessed the alleged assault, promised to be in police
court at 9 o'clock this morning.
WHO IS BRIDGET
The ambulance of
the City Hospital was called to the Center Park station of
the Central-Hudson railroad yesterday afternoon about 4
o'clock. An aged woman had fallen down in the street,
apparently from exhaustion. She was removed to the hospital,
where she gave her name as Bridget QUIGLEY. She muttered
something about waiting for a train to take her to
Churchville, but that was all that could be gotten out of
her. It is thought that she lives in Churchville, and that
she came to Rochester yesterday to do some trading. As she
is apparently 80 years of age she succumbed to weariness and
fell as stated. The physicians at the hospital believe
that the woman will be able to leave the institution this
morning, as she was much improved at a late hour last night.
MEETING OF THE
The regular monthly
meeting of the Practitioners' Club was held last evening at
the residence of Dr. Louis A. WEIGEL, corner of East

with radiographic pictures. After the business session those
present were served with lunch by Mrs. WEIGEL.

Spencerport Yesterday Morning - House Owned by James Hickok
About 7:30 o'clock
yesterday morning a farm house about three miles east
of Spencerport was burned to the ground together with the
contents. The house was owned by James HICKOK, of Rochester,
and was occupied by a family by the name of HOGAN. The
family lost all their furniture and most of their clothing,
and had no insurance. The house was insured for nearly
enough to cover the loss to Mr. HICKOK.

CLAIMS HER OWN
The mother of the
baby girl, which was left on the door steps of the
Delmonico hotel at Corning a couple of weeks ago, has at
last been discovered. Yesterday a letter addressed to Mrs.
Rusco DELMONICO, Hotel Delmonico, Corning, N. Y., was
received by Mrs. Homer RUSCO, wife of the proprietor of
the hotel where the baby was found, reading as follows:
Cross Fork, Pa., April 14, 1898
Dear Madam: In regard to the child that was left on your
doorstep, I myself am the mother, and I also must claim my
own. I will come and get it and settle for its keeping.
Please let me know at once. I can't rest until I have my
child. Please do not let any one have it. I will come soon
as you let me know.
Let me know at once.
Cross Fork, Potter Co., Pa.
Mr. and Mrs. RUSCO will probably do nothing in
regard to the young woman's request as the matter has
really passed out of their hands. The child was placed in
the hands of J. Amasa STANTON, of Bath, the county
poormaster, who made a formal transfer of the child to Mr.
and Mrs. P. J. MORGAN, of Corning. They now have the
child. Mrs. RUSCO has addressed a note to the mother,

injury to the fruit crop by the late cold weather seems to
be groundless, so far as the belt along Lake Ontario is
concerned. Owners of the big peach orchards north of
Morton have examined the buds within a day or two and find
them all right. A full crop is anticipated. Small fruits
are also uninjured. Apple buds are sound, and so thick
that many growers are beginning to worry over a repetition
of the overplus of 1896.
Le Roy Farmer to
Try Sugar Beet Culture This Fall - Factory May Result
in the town of Le Roy will this summer test the
adaptability of their farms for growing sugar beets. The
seed will be furnished by the United States department of
agriculture. The crop will be grown under the special
supervision and instruction of the New York state
experimental station at Geneva. A representative from the
station will visit the farms upon which the beets are
being grown, at different intervals during the season to
note the conditions that prevail, give verbal instructions
to the experimenters and observe how the work is done.
With the exception of a sample for analysis the crop will
remain the property of the grower.
By conducting these experiments all over Genesee county it
can be determined whether or not it would pay to erect a
sugar factory in the county.

McCarthy Took an Ounce of Oil of Cedar But Will Recover
McCARTHY, 49 years of age, who is employed as a
stableman at the livery stables of H. D. HEDDITCH, No.
434 Lyell avenue, attempted to end his existence about 1
o'clock yesterday afternoon by swallowing an ounce of
oil of cedar. He was removed to the City Hospital, where
prompt measures restored him to consciousness. The
physicians at the hospital say that he will recover.
McCARTHY had been employed by HEDDITCH for some time. He
had been drinking heavily of late and this, in addition
to other troubles, made him despondent. McCARTHY boards
with HEDDITCH, who went to the barn yesterday afternoon
to give the man instructions regarding work about the
barn. He could not find McCARTHY and thinking that he
might be asleep upstairs he went to call him.
He found McCARTHY lying on a lounge in a stupor. He
attempted to arouse the man and failing to do so he
looked about the room. His eyes rested on a bottle
labeled "poison." He examined the label and
saw that the bottle had contained oil of cedar. HEDDITCH
then made all haste to secure a physician and Dr. W. J.
BURDEN, of No. 418 Lyell avenue, but a short distance
away, was sent for. The physician found the man in so
serious a condition that he deemed it best to send him
to the City Hospital, and the ambulance of that
institution was sent for.
McCARTHY readily responded to heroic treatment and after
an hour's work the hospital physicians pronounced him
out of danger.
The peculiar feature connected with the case is the
poison taken by McCARTHY. Oil of cedar is used for
reducing inflammation in wounds such as blisters,
abrasions and the like. Its effect is not so deadly as
laudanum and similar poisons and its use is seldom
resorted to by would-be suicides. McCARTHY refuses to
talk regarding his act of folly.

found an old man on Exchange street yesterday afternoon,
who did not know where he was. The man was taken to
headquarters where he spent several hours chatting with
Turnkey STRUBLE. He said that his name was Michael
MARTIN and that he was born in 1818. He said he owned a
farm on a railroad entering the city but he did not know
which line he came to the city on. He had been in the
city several weeks and during that time had been living
with one of his sons.
MARTIN said that he had an attack of malaria fever,
which caused him to lose his memory at times. Early last
evening MARTIN's son called at police headquarters and
told Captain McDERMOTT that his father was missing and
that he would like to have the officers instructed to
look for him, as he was not very well acquainted with
the city. Great was his surprise when the captain led
him to Turnkey STRUBLE's apartment and there showed him
his father sitting complacently in an easy chair. A few
minutes later the elder MARTIN was seen walking toward
the Four Corners leaning on his son's arm.

Fictitious Names and Addresses and Claims She Was
woman, having the appearance of having spent the best
part of her youthful days in dissipation, is confined
at St. Mary's Hospital, to which institution she was
brought from Charlotte Saturday morning. She has given
several fictitious names and addresses and her
identity remains unknown at the present time. About
1:30 o'clock Saturday morning the wife of Edward
DORSEY, who lives on the boulevard, just south of
Charlotte village, was awakened by hearing groans
apparently coming from the front porch of the house.
Mr. DORSEY hastily dressed himself to investigate, and
when he opened the front door he was greatly startled
to find the almost senseless form of a young woman
lying prone upon the porch. He carried her inside and
Mrs. DORSEY succeeded in restoring the woman to
consciousness, whereupon she began to cry bitterly.
She said that she had been brutally assaulted by a
young man, who had left her where she was found.
When DORSEY heard this he at once went to Charlotte
and informed Chief of Police DENNIS, who accompanied
him back to the house. The chief decided to remove the
woman to the Craig hotel, and this was done. She was
closely questioned, and her replies were to the effect
that she accompanied two young men to Charlotte Friday
afternoon. The men had an open buggy drawn by a single
horse. They visited various hotels and had several
drinks. The woman was taken ill and in the evening she
fainted, so she alleges.
The men then placed her in the buggy and started in
the direction of the city. When they reached the
outskirts of the village the woman claims that one of
the young men attempted to assault her. He then forced
her to get out of the buggy and she succeeded in
staggering to the place where she was found. The girl
also stated that when she resisted the young men, one
of them struck her a violent blow in the face.
Chief DENNIS had Dr. SULLIVAN attend the woman at the
hotel, but she grew rapidly worse, and in the
afternoon she was brought to St. Mary's Hospital. She
gave her name as Fannie BROCK, and said that she was
employed at the Franklin hotel. Chief DENNIS
ascertained that no such person had been employed
there, and when he again tried to obtain her name, she
said that she was Mary LEARY, of No. 247 Exchange
street. This name and address was also found to be
When Dr. SULLIVAN was called to treat her the woman
told him that she had given birth to a child Friday
morning. After her removal to the hospital the
physicians found evidence of a criminal operation
having been performed upon her, probably Friday
morning, and they discredit her story in its entirety.
Chief DENNIS's theory is that after the young men
drove away from Charlotte they became alarmed when
they saw that the woman did not recover from her
stupor, and that for this reason they did not care to
take her with them to the city. So they took her out
of the buggy and carried her to the place where she
This theory is substantiated by the fact that several
hours before she heard the woman's groans, Mrs. DORSEY
heard two young men talking in low tones in front of
her house. As no marks were found on the girl's face
or body, her story of attempted violence is
discredited. The police of this city have had nothing
to do with the case. It is said that Chief DENNIS has
in his possession the names of the two young men who
were with the woman Friday evening, but as she
communicated them to him, it is thought that they are

Raymond Wood, 20
Years Old, Will Face a Serious Charge in Police Court
aged 20 years, will face a very serious charge in
police court this morning. The lad lives at No. 58
Fourth street. Complaint was recently made to Chief of
Police CLEARY that young WOOD had been annoying women
in the neighborhood for some time past by exposing his
person. Last night, Officers PEARSON and NAGLE
were detailed by the chief to investigate the matter.
About 9 o'clock last evening several ladies, who were
walking along Fourth street, were badly frightened by
WOOD. Several minutes later a woman, who lives next
door to the WOODS, was also frightened by the lad. She
started to run into her house, and WOOD followed her.
Officers NAGLE and PEARSON arrived just in time to
save WOOD from the rude clutches of several indignant
neighbors who had been attracted to the scene by the
woman's cries for assistance.
WOOD was arrested and sent to the police station. He
is a nice looking young fellow, and it is thought
that his mind has been affected by excesses. His
parents are both deaf and dumb. He claims to have
attacks of major hysteria about once in three months
and at such times is not responsible for his actions.
