BOY LOSES LIFE IN UPPER RIVER
SAID TO HAVE LEAPED ON ICE FROM BANK
COMPANIONS SEE HIM SINK
Two Stories as to How Youngster Came to Get Into the Water.
Coroner will Begin Dragging River in Genesee Valley Park To-Day.
Harry WILSON, aged 9, was drowned in the Genesee river opposite Genesee Valley
Park late yesterday afternoon. His body was not recovered, but this morning
men from the morgue will begin dragging the river where the boy sank. The boy
was in the company of two others of his age. There were powerless to aid him,
and ran from the river bank to their homes.
From reports obtained by the police, the boy leaped from the bank of
the river upon the thin ice. He was a son of James WILSON, a cooper, of No.
433 1-2 Jefferson avenue.
The WILSON boy, accompanied by Milton SCHOENHEIDT, aged 9, of No. 601 Seward
street, and Robert INGERSOLL, aged 12, of No. 155 Cottage street, started for
the river. The boys followed the Pennsylvania tracks on the west side of the
river to a point near the roundhouse, opposite the park. None of the boys had
skates, according to SCHOENHEIDT, who told his story to Patrolman WIRTH. All
three stopped near the roundhouse.
The ice that covered the river there seemed to be thick enough, although
young SCHOENHEIDT said it was dirty. He said the WILSON boy suddenly yelled,
and, running at top speed, leaped from the bank out upon the ice. The boy sprang
a considerable distance. Young SCHOENHEIDT said he had started after WILSON
intending also to jump on the ice, but when his companion struck he saw the
ice give way beneath him. He checked himself at the edge of the bank, but almost
The WILSON boy cried out and sank. He came up, and his companions ran up
and down the bank, looking for something they could shove out to him. They cried
out in the meantime. No one came, and at length the struggling boy sank from
sight for the last time. As the water closed over him the boys ran to their
homes and reported the incident. The Bronson avenue police station was notified,
and Patrolman WIRTH was detailed by Captain McDERMOTT to inves- (didn't get

NEARLY CAUGHT A SWINDLER
Collector ROTH Too Big a Man for Sprinting Purposes.
A man who represented himself to have been authorized by the labor unions
of the city to solicit subscriptions for a reading room for the benefit of workingmen
called on Collector of Customs George F. ROTH, in the Federal building, yesterday.
He had visited Mr. ROTH before, at which time Mr. ROTH told him that he would
see about the matter, and invited him to call again. Yesterday he made his second
call, and but for Mr. ROTH's generous size and the swing doors in the postoffice
entrances, the solicitor would now be a prisoner at police headquarters. Mr.
ROTH tried to arrest him, and succeeded in giving the fellow a good scare.
Yesterday, when the fellow showed up at Mr. ROTH's office he had a paper
bearing the names of Charles J. BROWN, J. B. PERKINS, Hiram W. SIBLEY, H.C.
BREWSTER, W. BAUSCH and T.B. DUNN. All were down for $10 subscriptions ex- (didn't
