WITH ALL THE WEDDING SPIRIT
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.
LARCENY CHARGE NOT PROVED
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.
DEATH DUE TO NATURAL CAUSES
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.
MUSICAL IN HONOR OF BIRTHDAY

that Mrs. RINGE is still too ill to permit of trial.
CHILD HANGED BY PLAYMATES, BUT RESCUED IN TIME TO SAVE LIFE
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.

Bath, July 3 - The wedding of Miss Pearl, younger daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Wilson P. VAN SCOTER, of this village,

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. Mr. and Mrs. SHUTE left on an evening train to spend a few days in New York
city. They will reside in Hornell.

29 years old and her entire life had been passed in Le Roy. She is survived by her mother.
AUTOMOBILE STOPPED RUNAWAY
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

stopped, and its owner caught it before it had time to get another start. The auto was not injured.

BOYS ACCUSED OF STEALING
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.

water. The thieves made their way to an Exchange street shop, where they sold the wheels, getting a small sum for

and seeing them together at Caledonia avenue and Glasgow street arrested them.

lives on the East side.
NAVY DOESN'T WANT HIM
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.

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.
SIX MONTHS FOR PELLOW
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
PLAINTIFF MUST PAY ASSESSMENT
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.

TWO ANCESTORS WERE HANGED
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,
HOODLUMISM DISPLAYED IN CANANDAIGUA CELEBRATION
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.
MEETS DEATH TRYING TO LEAP OVER CHASM AT WATKINS GLEN
Watkins, July 4 - Llewellyn O. SMITH, son of Mrs. Seward SMITH, of Odessa, met his death in Watkins Glen this afternoon.

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.

HIT ON HEAD BY A BRICK, VICTIM LOST BOTH MEMORY AND SPEECH
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.
HIS COMPLAINT DISMISSED
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.
FOUND DEAD IN BED
Wayland, July 5 - Anthony WESTBROOK, of Garlinghouse, which is about seven miles northeast of this village, died

POLICE ROUND UP ALLEGED BURGLARS
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 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.

LEFT MANY VICTIMS BEHIND
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.
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.
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.
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.

ROCHESTER MAN DROWNED WHILE BATHING
IN SURF AT YORK BEACH
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.
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.
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
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.
man had a great many friends in Rochester by whom he was highly esteemed. At
his place of business he was being rapidly advanced.
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.
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,

Special Dispatch to the Democrat and Chronicle
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.
MAY HAVE BEEN CASE OF SUICIDE
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.
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
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.

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.
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.
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
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.
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.
HAVENS's mother's name was Mary WEED. She was born on the day General
CORNWALLIS surrendered. She lived to be 96 years old.

authorities, met a horrible death yesterday afternoon at the Union
street crossing of the New York Central, when he fell beneath a fast

WOMAN SUICIDES AT
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,
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.

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.

STOCK FARMER COMMITTED SUICIDE IN HIS BARN
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.

MAN DROWNED IN THE
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

MAN WANTED BY POLICE
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
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.

SAW DUST FIRE
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.

WOMAN FELL OFF
STEAM TUG AND WAS DROWNED NEAR PALMYRA
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.
STEALING TRUNK CONTAINING VALUABLE PAPERS
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.
MAN WAS AMONG THE VICTIMS OF A R. R. DISASTER
Webster, July 24
- G. Howard CURTICE of Spokane, Wash., who was among those
killed in the wreck on the Great Northern road, near
Camden, Wash., was a former resident of this village. He
was a lumber dealer and was about 35 years of age.
Mr. CURTICE went West a few years ago. His father-in-law,
George PEACOCK, who lives in this village has been
endeavoring to get into communication with Mrs. CURTICE by
telephone, but she was away from home visiting and he has
not yet heard from her. Mr. CURTICE was a distant relative
of the CURTICE family, of Rochester.

LITTLE BOY, MISSING THREE YEARS, FOUND IN NEWBURG GAS
the Clothing Identified by Mother
Mystery As To
The Way Boy Met Death
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
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
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.
INVESTS TWO CENTS MAKES $27,024 ON HIS VENTURE.
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

the Family History
Thomas Edmonds Hayward)
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
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.
ELEVATOR IN DEPARTMENT STORE CRUSHES OUT LIFE
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 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.
