Marriage Ceremony in City Hall Office of the Health Bureau

Just before the Fourth everybody relaxes except the employees in the health Bureau office. They have things to do. Yesterday afternoon Registrar of Vital Statistics HITCHCOCK peered above his ponderous tomes at a comely young woman who asked if that was the place where people were married. In a few moments a civil marriage had been performed by Mr. HITCHCOCK in due form under legal authority.

Philip BROWN and Miss Carmela SERPICA were the groom and bride. The best man was Captain C. A. SIMMONS, chief clerk of the Department of Public Safety and military instructor of the police department.

The bridesmaid was Miss Florence VOGEL, of the Department of Public Safety, who wore a gown which matched the sky blue necktie of the groom. The bride was attired in a green dress, with gold belt, white waist and a Neapolitan hat. Not much attention was paid to the groom.

The groom previous to the ceremony deposited a fat fee on the table in the office, but Registrar HITCHCOCK will never see it. It was converted into a wedding feast of ice cream, wafers and Turkish cigarettes. The bride and groom took things as a matter of course, but were manifestly impressed with the hospitality of the City Hall people.

After the ceremony Registrar HITCHCOCK announced that the merry month of June had broken the record for weddings. According to his estimates, there were 375 weddings performed in June, and all the ????? are not in yet.

In police court yesterday the prosecution was unable to connect Eugene PETREOSEMOLO with the disappearance of $30 that had been concealed in Frank CLEMENTI's truck, and the Italian was discharged. The theft occurred about a month ago. CLEMENTI roomed in State street. One Sunday while he was absent the trunk was broken into and the money taken.

Coroner KLEINDIENST yesterday issued a certificate of death from natural causes in the case of Luke ARMSTRONG, who was found dead in a cell at police headquarters on Sunday night. It was shown at the inquest that the man was ill as well as intoxicated when arrested. He had chronic kidney ailment although he did not tell the police physician of this. The physician did not think at the time ARMSTRONG was arrested that he was ill enough to go to a hospital.

A musical was given on Saturday night at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Paul ELLIOTT in honor of the birthday anniversary of Mrs. ELLIOTT. Miss Elizabeth ELLIOTT will soon sail for Italy, where she will continue her musical studies. Her teacher, Miss N. P. WILDER, arranged a programme for the evening, in which Mrs. CLARK, Miss McCLANDESH, Mrs. H. Carrie MOULTON and Will GERSTNER participated. Refreshments were served.

A reception for Miss Thelma BROWN was given at the home of Miss Etta GUTTENBERG, No. 82 Nassau street, on Sunday night. There were violin solos by Louis MOSCOV and Matthew ALDERS, a piano solo by Miss Thelma BROWN and a duet by the Misses Sadie and Etta GUTTENBERG. Out-of-town guest were Roy SILVERS and Ben LEVY, of New York, and George MOSCOV, Louis MOSCOV and Adelle KAPLAN, of Elmira.

A burglar entered the home of Mrs. Catherine BLAM, of No. 37 Miller street, on Monday afternoon. The screen door had been left unlocked and the man entered without trouble. From a bureau he took $55 in bills and gold. He left as easily as he entered, and so far the police have been unable to obtain any trace of the man.

Ward K. ANGEVINE, Jr., aged 10 years, fell over a box at his home in Garson avenue yesterday afternoon and suffered severe injury. Dr. Nathan W. NOBLE found that the child had received a compound comminuted fracture of the right forearm.

The case of Isaac J. DEPUY, as committee of Melissa J. DEPUY, his mother, adjudged insane, against Hattie Burge MYERS, of Geneseo, to set aside a deed executed by Mrs. DEPUY, occupied the entire day in Equity Term of Supreme Court yesterday. Judge J. W. DUNWELL presided. Several witnesses were heard. The case will probably last the remainder of the week.

The cases of Cecile RINGE and "Bill" WILSON, the former indicted for forgery and the latter for keeping a disorderly house, are scheduled for trial to-morrow in County Court, and the District-Attorney's office has made preparations for the prosecution. Both "patients," are apparently somewhat improved, but it is intimated that Mrs. RINGE is still too ill to permit of trial.

Lockport, July 3 - Word comes from Hartland that the little five-year-old son of Frank HAWLEY, residing on the Town Line road, 1 ½ miles south of Barker, narrowly escaped death by hanging by playmates.

It seems that HAWLEY'S lad was playing with the children of George SHERWOOD, a neighbor. The ordinary games of childhood grew stale to the enterprising little folks and one of them suggested a hanging scene. The little HAWLEY boy consented to play the role of the victim.

A box was placed under the convenient limb of a tree and he took his stand thereon. One of the other children acted the part of the hangman, tying one end of the rope about the boy's neck and the other to the limb of the tree. At a given signal the box was kicked from under young HAWLEY and he was kicking and writhing at the end of the rope in a jiffy. The sight frightened the youngsters and they fled in a panic.

As good luck would have it, Mrs SHERWOOD happened to glance out of the window just as the boy was swung off. She seized a knife, raced to the tree and severed the rope on which the boy was slowly choking to death. She dashed water in his face and to her intense relief he opened his eyes and was soon himself again.

Miss Pearl Van Scoter the Bride of a Hornell Man

Bath, July 3 - The wedding of Miss Pearl, younger daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Wilson P. VAN SCOTER, of this village, and Frederick SHUTE of Hornell, was celebrated at 4 o'clock this afternoon, at the home of the bride's parents, in Haverling street. The house was elaborate in its floral decorations and the marriage ceremony was performed in a bower of oriental palms.

Rev. Henry Clay WOODS, pastor of the Centenary Methodist Church, officiated, in the presence of the immediate relatives. The bride wore a gown of white silk mull, was unattended, and carried a bouquet of white sweet peas. Following the ceremony refreshments were served.

While Looking for Him Sheriff Found an Unknown Insane Man

Batavia, July 3 - Edward CLARK, of Alexander, a farmer, has disappeared from home, and is said to be wandering around the country in a demented condition. He left home June 25th(?) He was last reported as having been seen several miles from home and in the woods. He is 55 years old, sober and industrious, and for a long time had thought that he was going insane. Up to the present time no trace of him has been found, although the sheriff has run down every clue.

While searching for CLARK, Sheriff WILLIAMS took into custody an unknown insane man in Bethany. The man cannot give his name or age. He is about 30 years old, five feet eight inches in height, and weighs about 165 pounds. He has black hair, blue eyes and a full, round face. He is confined in jail. It is thought that he may have escaped from Rochester, as that is about the only name he speaks.

Le Roy, July 3 - To-day, at high noon, at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Frank HOUSTON, on Gilbert street, was solemnized the marriage of their eldest daughter, Miss ???? Sarah HOUSTON, to Arepus BURROUGHS, of Cattaraugus. The wedding was a very quite one. Rev. Pierre CUSHING, rector of the St. Mark's Episcopal Church, performed the ceremony. The bride was unattended and wore a going away gown of blue voile with hat to match. After the ceremony a wedding luncheon was served. Mr. and Mrs. BURROUGHS left on (didn't get the rest)

Le Roy, July 3 - Last night, at the home of her mother, on Clay street, the death of Miss Anna DELEVAN occurred quite unexpectedly. Miss DELEVAN had never been strong and for the past week she had been declining, but her death was not looked for. She passed away while seated in a chair, death resulting from heart failure. Miss DELEVAN was 29 years old and her entire life had been passed in Le Roy. She is survived by her mother.

A horse attached to a delivery wagon ran away on Front street yesterday morning. It probably would have damaged some things in Main street had it not collided with a big auto belonging to the ADAMS Express Company. The horse crashed into the auto in Main at the intersection of Front, and both shafts of the wagon were broken. The horse stopped, and its owner caught it before it had time to get another start. The auto was not injured.


Bert GALLOWAY was brought to police headquarters last night by Walter MYKINS, his bondsman, who turned him over to Sergeant SHEPARD. MYKINS would not say what induced him to surrender the young man. GALLOWAY is to have a hearing this week on a charge of petit larceny. He is accused by his sister, Mrs. WHITLOCK, of No. 164 Tremont street, of having stolen her pet bulldog, valued at $20.

By act of the Board of Supervisors John MAHAR has been made an attendant at the morgue at a salary of $720 a year. MAHAR has been assisting Superintendent BENNETT for some time. Robert STONE, regular morgue attendant, obtained an increase of $120 a year.

Theft of Bicycle Charged Against Youngsters of 10 and 15

Boys of 10 and 15 years were arrested last night by Detective SPILLINGS, who locked them up at the Shelter on a charge of petit larceny. The boys are accused of having stolen a bicycle from a Plymouth avenue man some time ago. The bicycle was taken to the river bank, where its parts were separated and all but the wheels thrown into the water. The thieves made their way to an Exchange street shop, where they sold the wheels, getting a small sum for them.

Complaint was made to Chief HAYDEN relative to the theft. Several other complaints of similar thefts were made about the same time. Detective LEGLER and McDONALD were detailed on the case. SPILLINGS knew the boys were wanted and seeing them together at Caledonia avenue and Glasgow street arrested them.

The younger boy cried as he was led away to the Shelter for the night. He lives in Troup street. The other boy lives on the East side.

The American navy will not stand for everything. If a man develops the fact that he has little Americanism in him, the naval authorities soon know it and are glad to be rid of him. Albert JOHNSON was arrested in Main street early yesterday afternoon by Patrolman KIRBY on a charge of vagrancy. He admitted that he was a deserter from the League Island naval yard. The navy officials wired last night that they did not want the man. A harness and other articles were found in his possessions.

Harry STANLEY, an actor, will spend fifteen days in the Erie county penitentiary because of vagrancy. STANLEY wrote to George RAINES, of this city, asking him to send him (unreadable) dollars. He told the police justice in Buffalo that he had read in the newspapers that Mr. RAINES was a "good fellow" and that he expected the money by return mail. He said he was an actor, and was awaiting an engagement. His record will be looked into.

Joseph PELLOW was sent to the penitentiary for six months after he had pleaded guilty to larceny in police court yesterday. PELLOW was arrested in an Allen street building one day last week, while he and a pal were ransacking rooms occupied by different boarders. PELLOW, it is said, was getting into another man's suit of clothes when a woman discovered him. Chief HAYDEN was notified and sent policemen there. PELLOW was arrested, but his partner got away.

In the suit of Kate H. COX against Thomas DRANSFIELD, as tax collector, Justice FOOTE, in the Supreme Court, yesterday dismissed the complaint. The action, it appears, was brought to test the validity of an assessment upon the plaintiff's real estate in connection with the building of the West Side sewer. The dismissal of the complaint places the payment of the assessments upon the plaintiff in the action. The allegation is made that the plaintiff in purchasing the land, assumed the payment of the sewer assessment.

Death in Rose of Woman Whose Family Goes Back to Witchcraft Days

Rose, July 4 - The death of Mrs. Mary TOWNE, wife of Joel LEE, one of the prominent farmers in this section, occurred yesterday after a brief illness. Her age was about 80 years. Mrs. LEE was a daughter of Silas and Polly SEELYE TOWNE who came to this section from Paris, Oneida county, but who were natives of Worcester, Mass. They were of the very straightest sect of Puritans and were from a long lived ancestry. Their father was Absalom TOWNE and nearly all of the children were given Bible names. An ancestor of the TOWNES lived in Salem, Mass., and there in the troublous days of the witchcraft, two of his sisters were hanged as witches, another was accused and escaped only by the allaying of the delusion which had so long possessed the people.

The TOWNES were often told stories of witchery. Absalom TOWNE'S mother died at the age of 106 and was born in 1747. Her childhood was within sixty years of the excitement itself and eye witnesses of the Gallows Hill must have narrated to her the infamies of the Cotton Matthers day.
Mrs. LEE leaves two sisters, Mrs. Lucy HOWLAND, of Clyde, and Mrs. Asa PLUMB, of Macedon, besides her husband, Joel LEE.

Property Destroyed and Lives of Persons in the Streets Placed in Jeopardy

Canandaigua, July 4 - "The Glorious Fourth" in Canandaigua has been characterized by some of the most flagrant displays of hoodlumism ever seen here. Boys and men passed along the streets firing revolvers loaded with blank cartridges at the feet of other pedestrians; giant crackers were thrown beneath horses that were passing on the street; some one for whom the officials of the Rochester & Eastern Company are searching, and who will be severely dealt with, threw a giant cracker against one of the large plate glass windows on the north side of the office, completely shattering the glass which reached from floor to ceiling.

One man was seen to place a sky-rocket on the broad pavement last night, and lighting it, allowed the missile to shoot down through the crowded street among the teams. Others lighted roman candles and pointing them at passing teams, shot the colored fireballs into carriages and at automobiles.

A new invention, called a "go-devil," was the favorite weapon of many individuals, and when lighted on the sidewalk - invariably at a time when women were passing, the affair would shoot in every direction, traveling long distances and throwing fire against the skirts of the frightened feminine pedestrians.

Fortunately no serious accidents were reported. The hospitals were not called upon to attend to any catastrophes, and the village surgeons had only a small number of minor injuries to care for, usually in the case of the irrepressible small boy or the careless adults who held firecrackers in their hands to shoot them.


Watkins, July 4 - Llewellyn O. SMITH, son of Mrs. Seward SMITH, of Odessa, met his death in Watkins Glen this afternoon. The fatality occurred at Rainbow Falls after a heavy shower, when the stream was a raging torrent.

Young SMITH, who was with a party of friends, attempted to jump over a deep chasm, but missed his foothold and fell into the stream, being swept into a deep pool.

The body was recovered an hour later and brought to the Haas undertaking rooms in the village. SMITH was 23 years of age and unmarried. He lived with his widowed mother near Odessa.

James Donovan Had to be Told the Names of His Own Children - Sues for $20,000.

Claiming that his client has been rendered into a being whose memory is lost, who does not know the names of any of his nine children unless they are told to him, that parts of his skull are gone and the shock to his brain such that he will eventually become an epileptic, mentally deranged, incompetent and a care upon his family, Attorney F. L. DUTCHER served papers yesterday afternoon in a suit for $20,000 damages in the interests of James E. DONOVAN, of this city, against Hiram H. EDGERTON, and the John SIDDONS Company, contractors.

Mr. DUTCHER claims that for nine days after his client had been removed from beside the Buffalo, Rochester & Pittsburg Railway Company's office building, upon which he was working. DONOVAN lay unconscious in St. Mary's Hospital, absolutely devoid of feeling, speech or reason. His case proved a rare study for the surgeons, who, after consultations, decided that the only means of saving the man's life, with a possible chance of restoring his faculties, was to remove a portion of the skull bones, which were fractured and pierced the brain.

DONOVAN, it is alleged, was struck on the head by a brick which fell seventy feet. The mishap occurred on November 25th last, at the southwest corner of Main street west and Washington street, while the plaintiff was employed on the building as a metal worked by the John SIDDONS Company.

It is alleged that one of the workmen knocked off the missile which caused such disastrous results to DONOVAN, and several who witnessed the accident thought the victim dead.

A peculiar feature of the case is that the man has apparently lost his memory and has been obliged to virtually to learn how t talk again. His vocabulary was diminished to a few simple words such as "yes" and "no." Even his own children, when pointed out to him, were as strangers and their names were repeated to him over and over before he could remember how to address them. When he comes downtown on a car, it is said, he cannot recall the names of the streets, and his recollection of all important matters is vague and indistinct.

Tailor, Who Sued Former Employer, Has No Cause of Action

Hornell, July 5 - A law suit somewhat out of the ordinary has occupied the attention of the Justice court for the last five days, but was brought to a close at a late hour Tuesday afternoon. James MURPHY, a tailor, applied for and was given a position some time ago by the Ryan tailoring establishment. After working seven weeks he left the employ of the Ryan establishment and opened a place of business for himself. He at once began a suit against his former employer, claiming that the amount of $150 was due him in addition to what he had already paid, as agreed when he began work.

Justice C. E. BEARD and a jury of five have listened to the evidence for five days, a large number of witnesses being sworn in MURPHY'S behalf. The manager of the Ryan establishment, Mr. HILLMAN, was the only witness for the defense. The jury returned a verdict of no cause of action.

Wayland, July 5 - Anthony WESTBROOK, of Garlinghouse, which is about seven miles northeast of this village, died very suddenly some time early this morning at the home of John KLINES, in this village, aged about 80 years. Mr. WESTBROOK was on the streets last evening and was feeling well. This morning as he did not get up at his usual time, KLINES went to his room and found him dead in bed.

Bath, July 5 - The examination of Miles McDONALD, who was arrested Tuesday night for an alleged violation of the excise law, has been set by Justice DUDLEY, before whom McDONALD was arraigned, for Monday next.

Two Men Accused of Robbing Geneva Home Caught With Goods

Geneva, July 5 - The residence of William DELAMARTER was entered by burglars at an early hour this morning. Mr. DELAMARTER was awakened at 2 o'clock by the sound of some one down stairs, but did not think that the house was being burglarized. A short time after she went down stairs and found the back door open, the window screen cut out and the window raised. She examined the room and found things in disorder and a silver watch and $2 gone.

This morning the police were notified and Chief KANE sent Policemen HAWKINS and KINNEY on the case. About 9 o'clock HAWKINS got a line on a man who was trying to dispose of a meerschaum pipe in the McAuliffe saloon on Exchange street. Policeman KINNEY who was working the case farther down the street discovered a suspicious character in T. F. BRENNEN'S cafe near the Central depot. The fellow was in the act of pouring out a drink when KINNEY entered the place.

The policeman grabbed the bottle from his hand and immediately put the irons on his wrists before the fellow knew what was going on. He attempted to put up a fight but the arrival of HAWKINS soon put that idea from his mind. He did, however, make resistance and it was necessary for the policemen to drag him part way to the station, where he gave his name as Ryan.

When searched the watch which was stolen from the DELAMARTER home was found on him, also a dozen silver spoons, a berry spoon, a clinical thermometer and several other articles. The man was locked up pending further investigation.

Man from West Came to Start Big Cafe, Fleecing New Found Friends
Burnett G. STOKES came to Rochester a week ago from the West. He had a breezy style, talked like a man of means and wore the best of clothes. Representing himself to have been, previous to the earthquake and fire in San Francisco, the owner of a large and profitable liquor cafe in Market street in that city, and possessing various letters from business houses, he proceeded to "locate" in Rochester.
    The man from the West was not long in forming the acquaintance of a well known man connected with a brewing company, whom he generously took into his confidence to the extent of informing him that he was here for the purpose of finding a suitable place in which to establish a first-class cafe. The brewing company agent was pleased to be able to show him any courtesy. Before long the man from the West had made up his mind that he would purchase the building formerly occupied by the Commercial Bank in Main street east.
     After a dinner Mr. STOKES showed some insurance papers, or what were assumed to be insurance papers, without a very critical examination. He had been informed that his claims would be settled by the first of the month, but there had been a little delay and he had learned later that checks would be mailed on the 21st. He would feel greatly accommodated if the brewing company agent would advance him some money, a mere trifle, two or three hundred dollars, perhaps.
     The money obtained, so it is alleged, STOKES had more visions. He visited a tailor and told of the glories of the Pacific coast, finally departing with two suits. No mention of money. He didn't forget to add, however, that he was going to open a cafe that would be the finest ever.
     How many others Mr. STOKES did business with it would be difficult to determine. Those who fell prey to his plausible tales are saying very little about their experiences. Mr. STOKES can't be interviewed, because he has gone.

Alfred H. Ashton Meets Death While on His Vacation at Maine Summer Resort
Word was received yesterday by John H. ASHTON, former alderman and supervisor of the Tenth ward, that his son, Alfred H. ASHTON, of No. 4, Brooklyn street, had been drowned at York, Me. Mr. ASHTON left immediately to bring the body to Rochester.
     Alfred H. ASHTON, who was 29 years old, was a bookkeeper for Michaels, Stern & Company, Clinton avenue north. He left with his wife several days ago to spend his vacation in the east, going by way of the St. Lawrence river. The trip was taken largely for the benefit of Mrs. ASHTON's health.
     The message telling of the drowning came by telephone to Edmund T. ANDERSON, a neighbor of young ASHTON in Brooklyn street. Mr. ANDERSON immediately communicated with the father, who started for York Beach on the next train. A second message was for relatives of Mrs. ASHTON, who was Miss Mamie GREEN, saying that she was all right.
     No details of the drowning were received in the message to Mr. ANDERSON. An Associated Press dispatch to the Democrat and Chronicle from York, Me., were that Mr. ASHTON was a guest at the Hotel Hiawatha and died while bathing in the surf. It further says that physicians who examined the body declared that death was due to heart trouble. Relatives of Mr. ASHTON in Rochester, however, say that he had no heart trouble so far as they knew, but that he had been a sufferer from muscular rheumatism, and may have been seized with a cramp while bathing.
     The drowned man had a great many friends in Rochester by whom he was highly esteemed. At his place of business he was being rapidly advanced.
     Besides his father and stepmother, young ASHTON leaves three sisters, Mrs. James A. OLIVER, of No. 125 Dewey avenue; Mrs. Alfred G. RICHMOND, of No. 371 Glenwood avenue, and Miss Laura ASHTON, who lives at the family home, No. 227 Glenwood avenue, also one brother, Elmer ASHTON, of No. 227 Glenwood avenue.
     A coincidence noted by friends of Mr. ASHTON is that two young men living in the same neighborhood have met sudden deaths within a few weeks. On June 10th last Arthur WRIGHT, aged 26, who lived at No. 296 Glenwood avenue, was drowned in upper Genesee river by falling from a canoe. On June 23d, Charles F. KERN, aged 25, of No. 255 Glenwood avenue, died of heart disease in a Pullman sleeper between Rochester and New York. Both WRIGHT and KERN were friends of ASHTON.
                                                  Special Dispatch to the Democrat and Chronicle
     York Beach, Me., July 15 - A. H. ASHTON, of Rochester, N. Y., a guest at the Hiawatha Hotel at Long Beach here, was drowned while bathing off the beach this noon (unreadable). Mr. ASHTON was with a party of friends. He was an expert swimmer and went out some little distance from shore. He had started back when he became exhausted, and, realizing his weakening condition, he called for help while still some distance out. Patrick E. MORAN, who was on the beach, started to his rescue, but before he reached him ASHTON sank. MORAN dived for his body and brought it ashore, where every effort was made to revive him. Mrs. ASHTON, who is at the beach for her health, was on the piazza of the hotel and saw her husband drown. This evening she is in a serious condition from the shock.
Body of Man Found in Canal at Lock 64
The body of a man was found in the canal near the pier of lock 64 early yesterday morning by one of the locktenders. Coroner KILLIP was notified and the body was taken to the morgue, where it awaits identification.
     Later in the day a coat and vest that without doubt belonged to the dead man were found on the canal bank midway between locks 64 and 65. Special Policeman McKELVEY found the clothing and sent it to the morgue. The finding of the clothes leads the Coroner and the morgue attendants to believe that it is a case of suicide. Morgue Superintendent BENNETT, who took the body from the canal, is of the opinion that it had not been in the water to exceed five hours, which strengthens the suicide theory.
     The man in life was about 60 years old and weighed 145 pounds. He was five feet eight inches tall and had light gray hair and mustache and blue eyes. The coat was black and the vest was of dark material with blue stripes running through it. The trousers were of gray material and striped. He wore a white shirt and a 15 1/2 white collar. He had no undershirt, but wore white underdrawers and blue stockings. The shoes were black and of the button variety. In the pockets of the clothing were six handkerchiefs, three bow ties, a pair of steel-bowed glasses, pipe and tobacco, a needle and thread, and several buttons.
     The fact that the man carried all these things indicated that he was a traveler. He may have come to the city from a distance, become tired of wandering and ended his career by jumping into the canal. The clothing is in good condition, indicating that the man was not a tramp. He had no money, however. The body had found lodgement against a suction pipe attached to the lock, which caused it to float on the surface of the water.
James V. LEWIS, of No. 605 Richmond avenue, Buffalo, has been spending a few days with Mr. and Mrs. C. T. BEDELL, of No. 1252 Main street east.
Mrs. William CLIFTON, of No. 242 Troup street, and Mrs. Jeffery QUINN, of No. 229 Brown street, have returned home after visiting their brother, John ERTH, in Ohio, and relative in Buffalo.
Rev. A. D. D. FRASER, pastor of the East Side Presbyterian Church, and Mrs. FRASER will leave the city to-day for a four weeks vacation at Ocean Grove. The pulpit will be supplied by Rev. Caleb RODNEY during Mr. FRASER's absence.
Miss Mellie K. ROBBINS, of New Bedford, Mass., is visiting her brother, Luther ROBBINS, and Mrs. ROBBINS, of No. 14 Winthrop street. Later in the month she will accompany Mr. and Mrs. ROBBINS to points on the coast of Maine, where they will spend their vacation.

Death Of Joseph W. H. Havens, Of Benton
A Son Of The Revolution
His Father Was One of the Minute Men - Mr. Havens Lived in Benton
Practically All His Life -- Remembered When Deer Were Plenty
Penn Yan, July 16, The death of Joseph William Harrison HAVENS, which occurred yesterday in the town of Benton, removes from Yates county one of its oldest pioneers. He was born December 19, 1815, in a log cabin in that town, on property owned by Alfred BECKER, and at that time a part of Ontario county.
     In 1818 Mr. HAVENS's parents moved to the farm where he resided at his death, with his daughter, Miss M. M. HAVENS. With the exception of about two years spent in Buffalo in a wholesale and retail grocery, and a year in the West, Mr. HAVENS had always resided there.
     The parents of Mr. HAVENS settled in Benton in 1806. His father was a soldier in the Revolutionary war, belonging to what were known as "Minute Men." In one of the campaigns when Andrew JACKSON was a candidate for president, Joseph HAVENS, Sr., built a hickory cart, leaving the bark on the wood, and with a horse drove to Washington and gave the vehicle to President JACKSON. The cart is now in the Smithsonian Institute in that city.
     Mr. HAVENS remembered __, deer, wild oats, and bears were numerous in this section, Benton Center's business section consisted of four corners surrounded by woods. He was the last of a family of thirteen children, five sons and eight daughters. He was married November 9, 1853, at Fort Plains, N. Y. Four children were born of this union, Mary, Jennie, Charles and Frank. He cast his first presidential vote in the VAN BUREN campaign in 1837. He was named after William Henry HARRISON, a general in the war of 1812, afterwards president.
     Mr. HAVENS could recall when the first cast-iron plow share was brought to this section. Wooden plows had been in use, and when his father brought home an iron one the neighbors were suspicious of it and feared that it might poison the land.
     Mr. HAVENS's mother's name was Mary WEED. She was born on the day General CORNWALLIS surrendered. She lived to be 96 years old.
Cheshire Storekeeper Went to New York and Has Not Returned Home
Canandaigua, July 16 - William C. PHILLIPS, a storekeeper in Cheshire, in the western part of the town of Canandaigua, has left his home and his whereabouts are unknown. PHILLIPS, who is aged about 27 years, is married and has a small son. He has conducted a general store at Cheshire, and ran a road wagon, supplying farmers for many miles around with groceries and other goods.
     It is thought he became worried over outstanding accounts, as he had a large number of them on his books. He was enterprising and ambitious. He went away from home on Saturday, July 7th, giving New York city as his destination and saying he would be gone about a week on business. His wife has heard from him once or twice and in the last letter he wrote despondently. He bade her good-by and told her to take good care of the boy, saying he had not the courage to return and face his financial troubles.
     PHILLIPS was well liked and had friends in Cheshire and this village who regret to learn of his trouble and who state that they would willingly have aided him to adjust his financial difficulties, which are not very serious so far as has yet been discovered. He has book accounts and other assets which it is thought will be sufficient to satisfy all his creditors.
     In the meantime his relatives and friends are making every effort to locate his whereabouts, hoping to get him to return to his family.

Two Railroad Accidents, One of Unusual Violence, Within City Limits
An Italian, unknown to the authorities, met a horrible death yesterday afternoon at the Union street crossing of the New York Central, when he fell beneath a fast freight and was cut in two, the wheels passing over his body just above the waist. It is expected that identity will be established to-day, as two countrymen of the decedent called at the morgue last night and said they recognized the face.
      They told Coroner KLEINDIENST that the foreigner had no particular home, stopping all over the city, perhaps not two nights in the same place. The unknown did not look like a laborer. He was dressed in light summer clothing and his hands were soft. He had no money.
     There were witnesses to the fatality. The Italian was riding on the freight, it is said, when the wind carried off his hat. He jumped from the train to recover it and then tried to regain his perch. He jumped for it and missed. His body fell across one track and life was instantly crushed out.
     The victim was about 5 feet 6 inches tall. He had a heavy growth of black hair and was shaved. He weighed about 160 pounds in life.
     Barth KENNEDY, about 45 years old, said to have been employed by the Yates Coal Company, is supposed to have been instantly killed last night by being hit by a Buffalo, Rochester & Pittsburg train leaving the West avenue station at 9:15 o'clock. The body was found just above Saxton street crossing.
      KENNEDY boarded with a Mrs. GLEASON, at No. 139 York street. How he came to be on the tracks is not known. The body was found after the train had passed by a man who rushed up to three men at the corner of Saxton and Tonawanda streets, with the statement that a man was lying near the tracks a short distance above the crossing.
     The three men, T. H. ROBISON, of No. 369 West avenue; William HINDSD, No. 174 Silver street, and George KARST, No. 67 Orchard street, went up the track and found the body of KENNEDY. He was dead. They went back to a telephone and notified. Coroner KLEINDIENST, and Morgue Attendant BENNETT was sent out for the body.
     KENNEDY was fairly well dressed. He had no money. His injuries as far as could be ascertained by a hasty examination, consisted of a fractured skull, a broken jaw and a crushed foot.

Wife of Pavilion Farmer Takes Her Life
Mrs. Mary QUINLAN, Suffering from Dementia, Drinks Carbolic Acid at Avon Institution.
Avon, July 21 - Mrs. Mary QUINLAN, wife of a prosperous farmer at Pavilion, N. Y., committed suicide by taking carbolic acid at the Avon Springs Sanitarium, this morning at shortly after 9 o'clock.
     Mrs. QUINLAN came to Avon yesterday morning, with her husband. She had undergone several operations during the recent few months, which left her in a serious mental condition, bordering almost upon dementia. After seeing her safely at the sanitarium, where she was to have several weeks' treatment, her husband left her, and went back to Pavilion.
     This morning Mrs. QUINLAN arose shortly after 5 o'clock and went down to the Erie tracks. When train 113 from the East, in charge of Engineer Timothy WELCH, arrived here at 8:00, Mrs. QUINLAN made (line unreadable) the wheels. The flagman, Christopher McNALLY, had noticed her standing around, and was watching her, and when she made an effort to get in front of the engine he detained her. Asking her what she was trying to do, she admitted that she wanted to commit suicide.
     Mrs. QUINLAN must have gone straight to the drug store of William H. FARNUM, where the acid was purchased. She told Frances COONAN, the clerk, that it was for medicinal purposes. She went to her room in the sanitarium.
     It was only a very few minutes later that an attendant heart groans coming from her room. The alarm was given, and the doctor and others entered the room, and found the woman upon the bed, suffering in agony, while a broken bottle which bore the label "carbolic acid," lay but a few feet from her. The doctor administered antidotes, and dispatched a (line unreadable) on the scene, but nothing could be done for her, and she passed away, without speaking.
     Dr. J. C. PRESTON, coroner, was summoned, and viewed the remains, but he has not as yet rendered a verdict. The dead woman's husband came to Avon in an auto this morning. The remains will probably be taken to Pavilion some time to-night.

George SIMONDS, who Married Here, Ended Life in Seattle
Boston, July 21, George SIMONDS, the agent for a Boston and New York excursion agency, who committed suicide at Seattle yesterday, by shooting himself, leaves a wife in Rochester, N. Y., whom he married two years ago. She always stayed with her family in Rochester when SIMONDS was traveling.
     SIMONDS was between 35 and 40 years of age, and was reputed to be a little odd. He was a native of South Acton, and his father, Calvin SIMONDS, died in an insane asylum at Westboro about a year ago.

An alarm of fire shortly before 2 o'clock this morning called companies to the home of Policeman Edward BURKE, No. 183 Atkinson street. A kerosene lamp had exploded. The flames were quickly extinguished. The loss was about $25.

Father Almost Kills Himself After Watching Boy Disappear.
     Buffalo, July 22 - James CRAID sat fishing on a dock on the Niagara river to-day, with his little son, Marvin, 10 years old. Suddenly the boy toppled into the water and was drowned.
     The father, crazed with grief, watched in vain for his little boy to rise to the surface, and when he did not appear, in a frenzy he drew a large knife and attempted to commit suicide.
     A sailor sitting on the rail of a vessel moored to the dock leaped to where CRAID sat and wrested the knife from him before he had seriously injured himself.
Binghamton, N. Y., July 22 - William H. BROOKINS, of Syracuse, an inmate of the Women's Relief Corps home, at Oxford, shot himself through the head and killed himself instantly at that institution this morning.

Chicago, July 23 - John Alexander DOWIE held his first meeting in the Tabernacle at Zion City to-day since the meeting which broke up in a riot six weeks ago.

His Body Was Found Sunday Morning -- He Had Taken Carbolic Acid-
Also Shot Himself Through the Head -- Worry the Supposed Cause
Auburn, July 22 - W. Parry KENNARD, was found dead in his barn, at Kenwood farm, just outside the city limits. There was no doubt as to how death had come, as one side of his face was terribly burned by carbolic acid, while a bullet from a revolver, which lay by his side, had entered the right side of his head, coming out on the left side above the temple.
     He was 43 years of age and is survived by his widow and two sons, the eldest of whom is 14.
     Mr. KENNARD was a scientific farmer and breeder of fancy stock. He was connected with the most prominent families, socially, in the city and was very highly esteemed. Worry is believed to have causes him to commit the act. To friends he had recently confided that the continual illness of his wife worried him greatly, and it is also known that he was anxious in regard to the outcome of several business transactions. Mrs. KENNARD is at present at Fourth lake, in the Adirondacks, where she went some weeks ago in search of health. Mr. KENNARD left a long letter for her, the contents of which have not been made public.
     Mr. KENNARD dined at the Auburn City Club, of which he was a member, last night, and seemed somewhat preoccupied, but otherwise normal. He went home early and is known to have been alive at 10 o'clock.
    Sometime during the night he went to the barn and drank an unknown quantity of carbolic acid. He also shot himself through the head. The body, when found at 8 o'clock this morning, showed that death had taken place several hours previously. Coroner O'NEILL gave permission to Judge George UNDERWOOD, Mr. KENNARD's brother-in-law, to take charge of the remains. They were taken to Tallman's undertaking rooms, to await the arrival of Mrs. KENNARD.

Sank While Swimming with Companion in Fifteen feet of Water
James DONNELLY, 28 years old, of No. 40 Huntington street, was drowned early yesterday morning while swimming in Irondequoit bay with a companion named Charles BROOKS. The two men were to spend the day in Dunbar Hollow, on the bay. At about 6:30 o'clock they went for a swim. The water there is about fifteen feet deep.
     After swimming around for a while DONNELLY suddenly sank as if taken with cramps and was drowned before his companion could go to his assistance. William COTTREL secured the body with a fishpole and drew it to the shore. Coroner KILLIP was notified and removed the body to the morgue.
     DONNELLY was a son of Michael and the late Margaret DONNELLY. He leaves his father, three brothers, John, Frank and Harold DONNELLY, and four sisters, Mamie, Anna, Alice and Loretta DONNELLY. The body was taken to the home, No. 40 Huntington street. DONNELLY was employed by the Stecher Lithographic Company. BROOKS works for the same firm.
Killed By Train When About To Flee The City
The police of the Fifth precinct are satisfied that the Italian who assaulted Antonio PERRA with a razor on Wednesday afternoon in Haidt place, was the same man who was killed by the freight train near Union street crossing later that day.
     Yesterday morning Sergeant COLLINS, of the Fifth precinct, who has been working on the case since the assault, came across an Italian who told him he thought the man killed at Union street was the same man who cut PERRA. Sergeant COLLINS went to St. Mary's Hospital and took PERRA, who has been there since the assault, to Strauchen's undertaking rooms, where the body is being prepared for burial.
     PERRA positively identified the body as that of the man who had met him in the street last Wednesday and demanded money. When PERRA refused to give him any, it is said, he drew a razor and slashed him over the heart and about the head.
     When PERRA was assaulted he fell and his assailant fled. The assault took place at about 4 o'clock. The man managed to avoid the police until after dark, when fearing he would be arrested, perhaps for murder, he attempted to leave the city on a freight, and was ground beneath the wheels.
     At the time PERRA was assaulted he told the police that he did not know who had attacked him. The police were doubtful of the story. A man named Sambatello REGGIO called at the morgue Thursday and identified the body as that of Carmelo GRANITO, who had worked at the Foster-Armstrong Piano Company's factory in Despatch.
     The suicide theory is not given much credence by the police, as witnesses at the inquest told the coroner that the man had got off the train to get his hat, which had blown off, and in attempting to get on the cars again had missed his hold and fallen. The coroner's verdict was accidental death due to the victim's own carelessness.

Sparks in Miller Planing Mill Quickly Suppressed
Saw dust in the wooden chute in the rear of a boiler in the planing mill at John MILLER's lumber yard, No. 691 Exchange street, caught fire yesterday afternoon, and from the amount of smoke that arose a serious fire was anticipated. An alarm was sent in from box 73, which summoned Assistant Chief JAYNES, Battalion Chief CREEGAN and several companies. The firemen quickly suppressed the fire. The damage was trifling.
     The chute is a long wooden affair that conveys sawdust from the buzz saws in the planing mill proper. The dust is forced through the chute by air pressure. In places an accumulation occurs, and in this instance one of the accumulations happened to be close in the rear of the boiler room. The fires under the boiler are fed with shavings from the mill. There is a strong draught back of the boiler, and during the afternoon flames from the burning shavings burst out in the rear of the boiler and set fire to some of the dust adhering to the chute or box. Sparks flew along the line of the chute, and smoke began to arise in quantities, which caused much alarm.
     When the firemen arrived they turned the contents of a small chemical on the sparks and used a stream from a small line of hose connected with the boiler room. The danger was soon over. Mr. MILLER suffered from a severe fire upon the same premises something more than a year ago.

Palmyra, July 24 - Mrs. Mima BATES, of Buffalo, fell off a steam tug into the Erie canal, as it was passing Galloway's bridge, about three miles east of this village, this afternoon, and although heroic efforts were made to rescue her, she could not be saved from drowning. Mrs. BATES was walking along the side of the boat when she suddenly lost her balance and fell overboard.
     One of the crew saw her fall and he jumped in. He struck the water nearly as soon as she did, but the suction of the tug carried her to the rear of the boat and she was probably struck by the paddle wheel, for when her body was recovered she had an ugly gash in her forehead.
     Her body was placed in the boat and brought to this village, where Undertaker CADY took charge of it. Coroner CARR, of Williamson, was notified and viewed the remains this evening. The tug was from Erie, Pa., and was hauling four loaded boats to Buffalo.
     Mrs. BATES was 30 years of age and she was the owner of the tug and one of the canal boats. Her husband was captain of the tug.
Penn Yan, July 24 - Some interesting details in regard to the mysterious disappearance of a trunk on May 1, 1905, have come to light, and one man has been held for the Grand Jury and indictment will be made against another, whose present whereabouts are unknown, as a result of the disclosures.
     On May 1st of last year Jerry WILSON was moving from the vicinity of Rumpus Hill to Atlanta, Steuben county where he now lives, conveying his effects in a hay rigging. -- On the wagon was a trunk, containing bank books of Rochester banks, showing deposits of $1,800, bonds and mortgages aggregating $2,000, and promissory notes and other securities, the whole amounting to about $5,000, besides clothing, army discharge papers, pension papers, etc. Stopping that night at a farmhouse on the way, WILSON missed the trunk, and although a thorough search was made, all efforts to obtain any clew to it were without avail.
     Up to a short time ago there lived in the neighborhood of Rumpus Hill a man named William KARNES, whose wife and he recently separated. In a tenant house on the KARNES farm lived Ernest FRIBOLIN. A few days ago Mrs. KARNES came to Penn Yan and gave information to the authorities to the effect that her husband and FRIBOLIN had found the trunk and had brought it home, and that they had burned all papers useless to them.
     Parts of the trunk that did not burn were buried, she says, in a nearby gully. A search warrant was issued, and clothing and other articles Mrs. KARNES says were in the trunk were found in the house occupied by FRIBOLIN. FRIBOLIN waived examination when arraigned before Justice BAKER. Bail was fixed at $1,000, and the bond was signed by Taylor KARNES.

Fragments of the Clothing Identified by Mother
Mystery As To The Way Boy Met Death
Newburgh, N. Y. - July 26, After mourning for over three years for her son, Charles, Mrs. James FLANNIGAN, of Fishkill Landing, was overcome with grief to-day when she identified parts of the clothing of the 3 1/2-year-old boy. He disappeared on the afternoon of February 3, 1903, and nothing had since been heard from him. It was for a time believed the boy was kidnapped, but this theory was abandoned, after thorough investigation.
     The body, in fragments, was discovered last night by mere accident. Superintendent LOISELLE, of the Fishkill & Matteawan Gas Company, with Stephen STOVIE, an employee of the gas plant, was working at one of the three tanks of the works. An iron fitting dropped from the sidewalk to the bottom of the tank. Mr. LOISELLE and his assistant improvised a hook for the purpose of "fishing" it up and in their search for the fitting pulled up a child's overcoat. Further investigation revealed the remains of the little FLANNIGAN boy, who disappeared over three years ago. The flesh was gone and only a few bones remained, but the clothing was still recognizable.
     The mother of the child is employed in a restaurant. She was informed of the discovery and immediately hastened to the gas works. On being shown the overcoat taken from the tank she said it was that worn by her son when she last saw him. She also identified the other remnants of clothing found. The poor woman was greatly overcome by the sight.
     Charles FLANNIGAN was about 3 1/2 years old when he disappeared in February, 1903. His father is a railroad man. The child had evidently fallen from the top of the brick wall when the tank was high and his body was crushed by the heavy weight when the tank was lowered later.
     The FLANNIGAN boy's body was the second found at the bottom of this tank within the past few months. Only a short time ago the remains of an Italian infant were discovered there. It was learned however, that the infant's body had been thrown there by an adult.
    The employees of the gas works are considerably puzzled at these occurrences. The property is carefully guarded, and the tanks are high and not easy of approach. How the FLANNIGAN boy met his death there is a mystery.
New York, July 26 - It was learned to-day that J. S. BACHE & Company, bankers, had purchased the $5,800,000 of Panama canal bonds which were recently allotted by the Treasury Department to Samuel BYERLY, an express company's clerk of this city.
     Bache & Company have in turn disposed of the bonds to Fisk & Robinson, who were the successful bidders for the greater portion of the issue. Through his knowledge of the peculiar status of the money market, BYERLY obtained $5,800,000 of the new Panama canal bonds, and all they cost him was a two-cent postage stamp, which was placed on the letter he sent to Washington bidding for the bonds.
     The price of the bonds already has advanced to 104.40, which means a profit of $27,024 for the clerk.
     In conversation with Secretary SHAW over the long distance telephone BYERLY asked if he was to receive his allotment of the bonds. He was told that he would if he deposited the $5,800,000 by August 1st. The clerk said he would.
     BYERLY put in the bid merely on a speculative deal and expected to be able to sell his allotment before August 1st.

Incidents in the Family History
(photo of Thomas Edmonds Hayward)
Pittsford, July 26 - The latest photograph of Thomas Edmonds HAYWARD, Pittsford's oldest and a highly esteemed resident, taken June 19th, shows him seated in his favorite chair, a Boston rocker. The rose bush at the rear is one of the many bushes, shrubs and trees on his extensive lawn, planted by him fifty-two years ago, when he purchased the property known as Carver's Folly.
     It was owned by the late Dr. Hartwell CARVER, well known in Rochester, and is located on Prospect Hill, Croton street, Pittsford. It was formerly Dr. CARVER's summer residence and why it was termed "Folly" is not known, unless the peculiar style of architecture suggested the term, it being quite unlike any other residence in this section of the state. Less than a quarter of a mile north, on Monroe avenue, was the winter home of Dr. CARVER. Originally it was surrounded by a very high picket fence, which attracted attention.
     Mr. HAYWARD came here many years previous to his purchase of this property from Liecester, Massachusetts, where he was born in 1810, his father being John SARGENT and his grandfather Nathan SARGENT. In the genealogy of this family it is stated that Nathan was an independent farmer, a Whig and a conscientious, com__ man. These qualities of character have been "handed down" as it were, to the generations following, and are prominent in the character of the subject of this sketch.
     Mr. HAYWARD is a man of fine intellect, was a teacher in his young manhood and has been a student all his life. Yesterday afternoon, when your correspondent called on him at his home, he sat in his arm chair reading the Democrat and Chronicle.
                                                                           FIGURE STILL ERECT
     Now, at the age of 96 years, he has a noble, dignified bearing, and converses with an ease and grace possessed by few young men of the present generation. He walks with a firm step and has a figure erect and well proportioned. His eyesight is exceptionally good and from his home he can distinguish parts of the county houses in Rochester, see the fountain at Highland Park, etc. During a stroll around his premises he conversed about the fruit trees in which he has been particularly interested for many years, being a well known horticulturist. He was keen to note and speak of a change in the direction of the wind, which took place quite suddenly, and proved a most interesting and entertaining host.
     The progenitor of his family on his mother's side, as shown by a genealogical chart published in 1851, is William SARGENT who came from England in 1638 and was admitted freeman and member of the church at Charleston, Mass, in 1839, from whence he removed to Walden, where he was a lay-preacher, from 1648 to 1650. JOHNSON in his book, "Wonder Working Providence," mentions him as a "Godly Christian." Mr. HAYWARD is of the sixth generation from William SARGENT, the others intervening included John, who was born in Barnstable, Mass., in 1669. His wife was Lydia CHIPMAN, daughter of Elder John CHIPMAN, and granddaughter of Governor CARVER of Mayflower fame.
                                                                              WAS A MINUTE MAN
     Jonathan was of the next generation, and was representative to the general court for seven years and selectman three years. Samuel was the son of Nathan and served as a member of Captain Seth WASHBURN's company of Minute Men. On the 19th day of April, 1775, the alarm reached Leicester of the advance of the British troops toward Concord. This company on their way to meet them halted in front of Nathan SARGENT's house, when he went out to greet them and inquired of the captain if they were supplied with ammunition. On hearing there was a deficiency in bullets, Mrs. Nathan SARGENT, Mr. HAYWARD's grandmother, whose maiden name was Mary DENNY, went into the house and took the large leaden weights from the grandfather's clock and melted them herself, then cast them into bullets which her husband distributed among the men.
     Mary DENNY SARGENT was born in 1727, a daughter of Daniel DENNY, one of the first settlers of the town of Leicester, and lived to the advanced age of ninety-five years. She was a remarkably intelligent woman, whose memory was stored with interesting local and personal anecdotes; and her recollections, had they been noted, would have furnished an interesting source of the history of the noted old town of Leicester. Age, it is said, hardly impaired the vigor of her mind or body and her grandson has inherited these splendid qualities.
                                                                      FOUGHT AT BUNKER HILL
     Several of this family were in the war of The Revolution and many others have a record of having fought for their country. Samuel SARGENT was with the Continental army at the battle of Bunker Hill and with the militia at the surrender of Burgoyne. In the latter his canteen was perforated by a ball, which he remained unharmed. Nathan SARGENT, the second son of Samuel, held offices of judge of the Court of Common Pleas, sergeant at arms of the House of Representatives, at Washington, D. C., and register general of the United States Land Office.
     Mrs. Romaine LUSK, of Pittsford, only daughter of Mr. HAYWARD, recently received a letter from John S. SARGENT, of Chicago, a cousin, third removed, whom she has never seen and it contained some interesting information regarding the SARGENT family. A photograph of the house in which Nathan SARGENT lived when his wife made the bullets for the soldiers, was inclosed. The house is standing now on Chestnut Hill and is inhabited and in good condition a fine old and imposing structure, partly surrounded by a stone wall.
     There are many other places of interest to this family in the historic town of Leicester, which Mr. HAYWARD left, in company with his only sister, Rebecca, the eldest of a family of six children. He was the youngest. Since they arrived here, in 1830, by packet boat on the Erie canal, he has not resided elsewhere. His sister died many years ago at the advanced age of ninety-seven years. Mr. HAYWARD attributes his long life not only as being of a family noted for its longevity, but to his manner of living.
Employee Caught by Descending Car and Instantly Killed
Michael H. DAVEY, employed for the past six weeks as conductor of an elevator at the store of Burke, FitzSimons, Hone & Company, was crushed to death between the shaft and the roof of the car yesterday afternoon. The man's death was almost instantaneous. He was running an elevator in the rear of the store, and had started down from the second floor. He is said to have leaned out of the doorway as he closed the door, and was caught. An inquest will be held.
     DAVEY was about 60 years old. He boarded at No. 23 Lyndhurst street. He had had previous experience in running elevators, which possibly accounts for his alleged carelessness. DAVEY had just taken a woman to the second floor. He started to run the car back to the basement, and as he did so he leaned out of the doorway just before closing the doors. As the car passed downward his head was caught between the roof of the car and the flooring.
     The accident was witnessed by a Mrs. EMPKE, one of the clerks in the boys' department on the second floor. The woman saw DAVEY as he stood leaning forward, and she warned him that some day he would meet with an accident. Death came so quickly that DAVEY did not have time to cry out. The body was carried down between the car and the wall of the shaft until the first floor was reached. There the body cracked the glass of the door facing the floor.
     The car was stopped and the body fell partially out into the space. A hurry call was sent to the Homeopathic Hospital, and the ambulance made a quick run to the store. Dr. NEWMAN saw that the man was dead, and he notified Coroner KLEINDIENST. The Coroner had the remains removed to the morgue.
     The morgue attendants had considerable difficulty in extricating the body from the shaft, so tightly was it wedged between the car and wall. The head, shoulders and chest were terribly crushed. Many ribs were fractured.
Prominent Architect and at One an Time Officeholder on a Fusion Ticket
After an illness of less than three days, Oscar KNEBEL of No. 17 Martin street, died yesterday at noon, aged 53 years. Mr. KNEBEL was a prominent architect, and a man who was honored by the public with election to a position of responsibility. For years he served as a member of the Executive Board under Mayor George E. WARNER and for two of the three years he was chairman of the board. His colleagues were James WHALEN and James JOHNSON. Mr. KNEBEL was the conservative member of the board.
     Mr. KNEBEL was not a politician in the ordinary sense of the word but was deeply interested in the city government. In the fall of 1896, the Democrats of the city desired him to be their candidate for member of the Executive Board and after much hesitation, he accepted the nomination. He was the only Democratic member of the board elected that year. The following year he was renominated on the fusion ticket of the Democratic and Geed Government parties and again elected by a large plurality.
     Oscar KNEBEL was born in Neheim, Westphalia, Prussia, in 1853, and came to this country with his parents in 1867. The family settled in Rochester and young KNEBEL attended the Free Academy. Later on he took up the study of architecture with his father, the late Christian KNEBEL. After his father's death he continued the business.
     In 1885 Mr. KNEBEL was appointed superintending architect of the Federal building in this city by President CLEVELAND and remained in charge of the work until its completion. He was the architect of St. Joseph's Orphan Asylum, Holy Redeemer Church. The Rochester News Company building and many others in the city and surrounding villages.
     Mr. KNEBEL was a member of Germania Lodge F. and A. M., No. 722. He leaves two sisters, Louisa and Christiana KNEBEL. He was unmarried.
