Celebrated by Mr. and Mrs. Gardner Sebring

Dundee, March 2 - Mr. and Mrs. Gardner SEBRING celebrated their fiftieth wedding anniversary at their home, between this village and the hamlet of Tyrone. The affair was enjoyable for all of the seventy-two assembled relatives and lifelong friends who gathered there. Mr. and Mrs. Gardner received many useful and beautiful presents of linen and china, besides a number of pieces of gold in commemoration of the day.

The SEBRING family is one of the oldest in this section of the state, and for more than one hundred years members of the family have been among the most prominent farmers and citizens of this section. The father of Mr. SEBRING came to this section from Lodi in the spring of 1810 and settled on the old homestead farm.

At that time there were but three farm-houses between the farm and the village of Watkins, ten miles east, and there were also but three houses in that village at that time. It was on this farm that Mr. SEBRING was born and where he spent the whole of his life.

February 27, 1861, Mr. SEBRING was married to Miss Nancy HORN, of the town of Starkey, who is thirteen years his junior, and who, with her husband, is still hale and hearty. They had only one daughter, who was married to Newton HOWELL and who died about six years ago. It is a curious fact that in the families of both Mr. SEBRING and his wife there were four brothers and three sisters, and they are now the only surviving members of their families.

Rev. M. D. YOUNGS, of the Methodist Church of Tyrone, who was present, addressed those assembled when the dinner was finished, making a few appropriate remarks in regard to the two lives that have been spared so long and that have both been so usefully lived.

Death of Well-Known Fowlerville Man at Avon

Avon, March 2 - John HUNTER, of Fowlerville, died at the home of his nephew, Mrs. Jesse C. WALLISS(?), Genesee street, in this village, yesterday afternoon about 3 o'clock, aged 91 years and 10 months.

Mr. HUNTER was born in Yorkshire, England, and with his wife and two children came to the United States in 1806. He came at once to the Genesee valley, and shortly afterwards located in Littleville, in this town, where for a time he conducted a shoe repairing shop. Later he purchased a farm a couple of miles west of Fowlerville, and he operated this farm up to about three years ago, when his wife died and he came to Avon to live with Mrs. WALLISS. Despite his four-score years and ten, Mr. HUNTER enjoyed good health up to a few weeks ago, when the breakdown that caused his death began.

The remains are to be taken to Fowlerville for burial.

Fiftieth Anniversary of Mr. and Mrs. John Barry

Victor, March 2 - The fiftieth wedding anniversary of Mr. and Mrs. John BARRY, who reside in Cherry street, about two miles south of this village, was celebrated Tuesday evening at the home of Mr. and Mrs. William H. TURNER, three miles south of here, Mrs. TURNER being a daughter of the aged couple. The house was prettily decorated, the color scheme being gold and white. The guests numbered seventy-five, and were from Owego, Pa., Rochester, Canandaigua, Waverly and this town.

Music was furnished during the evening by an orchestra and several solos were rendered by Edward J. RYAN, of Victor. There were dancing and card playing, and the aged couple entered into the pleasures of the evening.

A special feature was the serving of a seven-course wedding dinner. The dining room presented a pretty appearance. The tables were attractive with daffodils and ferns as the favored flowers. The place cards were dainty, hand-painted in yellow and white. Eighteen were seated at the bride's table. The huge wedding cake was decorated with golden flowers and leaves. A feature of the decorations was the fact that they had been used before, at the fiftieth wedding anniversary of Mr. and Mrs. Henry ELLIS, in 1872. Mr. and Mrs. ELLIS were grandparents of Mr. and Mrs. TURNER, at whose home last night's festivities took place.

Mr. and Mrs. BARRY were married in Ireland in 1861, and came to this country soon afterwards. They have been residents here for many years. They have seven children, all of whom were at the anniversary last evening, and with members of their family were seated at the brides table. With wives and husbands, they are: Mr. and Mrs. John DONOGHUE, of Rochester; Mr. and Mrs. John V. BARRY, Mr. and Mrs. William H. TURNER, Mr. and Mrs. William LYONS, Michael and Richard BARRY, all of this town, and William BARRY, of Owego, Pa.

Mr. and Mrs. BARRY received some beautiful gifts, including $50 in gold, given by the children; two gold- handled spoons, given by Mrs. Frank HAMLIN, of Canandaigua; pair of gold candlesticks, from Mr. and Mrs. Joel BENEDICT, of Michigan, and a gold clock given by Mr. and Mrs. Peter McMAHON and Mr. and Mrs. James McNAMARA.

Geneva Dealer Pays $5. Crusade Begun

Geneva, March 3 - James DAMICK, an Italian fruit candy and tobacco dealer, who conducts a place at No. 310 exchange street, was before Judge KEYES this morning on a charge that he had sold cigarettes to boys under 16 years of age.

FILKINS, one of the oldest residents of the town of Sodus, occurred last night at her late home about three miles south of this village, where she had lived with her son, Fraser FILKINS, since her husband's death in 1896.

Mrs. FILKINS had been a member of the First Methodist Episcopal Church here for nearly seventy years. Feeble health for a number of years prevented her from being active in social or church work, but her interest in all good things never slackened.

Y. she came to Sodus with her parents in 1833, and was married to William J. FILKINS in 1844.

Death of Trained Nurse at East Rochester Quite Unexpected

East Rochester, March 3 - Miss Harriet L. NEWCOMB, of East Rochester, died last Tuesday evening about 8:30 o'clock. She had been suffering from neurasthenia for nearly fifteen years, and had been confined to her bed since last November, at which time she had a severe nervous collapse.

Miss NEWCOMB had been under the treatment of her own physician, who resided in the West, and was then left to the care of her brother, a trained nurse, who had also nursed for the physician referred to. Miss NEWCOMB died very suddenly. Her death was entirely unlooked for, hence the non-attendance of a resident physician. Miss NEWCOMB was a trained nurse, a graduate of the Rochester City Hospital, of about twenty-five years standing. Her health was broken down in the service of others, and she never fully recovered from her first collapse of fifteen years ago.

One of Oldest Practicing Attorneys in Rochester

John C. O'BRIEN, one of the oldest practicing attorneys in Rochester, died at his home, No. 1,159 Lake avenue shortly after noon yesterday. He was born in Rochester, May 8, 1834, the son of Thomas O'BRIEN and Mary CARROLL. After his father's death, which occurred while he was still a youth, his mother moved to Geneva, where Mr. O'BRIEN received his early education. He attended Hobart College, from which he was graduated in 1856 with the degree of Bachelor of Arts. In 1871 e received the honorary degree of Master of Arts from the same institution.

Mr. O'BRIEN studied law in the University of Albany and received the degree of Bachelor of Laws in 1863 and in the same year was admitted to the bar. Since then he continuously practiced his profession in Rochester. In 1866 he formed a partnership with the late D. C. FEELY, under the firm name of O'BRIEN & FEELY which continued for several years. Thereafter, and in 1889 he formed a partnership with Irving PAINE. After this partnership was dissolved he took his eldest son, John T. O'BRIEN into partnership with him. John T. O'BRIEN died early in 1898 and in the same year Mr. O'BRIEN formed a partnership with Charles J. MADDEN, which continued until 1900, when Mr. O'BRIEN associated with him Hugh J. O'BRIEN, his third son, in the practice of law in a partnership, which continued until his death.

Notwithstanding the fact that Mr. O'BRIEN became blind in the latter part of the year 1896, he continued the active practice of law without intermission, visiting his offices daily, consulting with clients and attending to his general practice until a few months before his death. In his active practice, which continued for nearly forty-eight years, Mr. O'BRIEN represented many of the large corporate interests of Rochester and especially ecclesiastical and religious institutions of his own faith. He was counsel for the late Bishop McQuaid from the time of his consecration, for St. Mary's Hospital, for the Catholic Orphan Asylums and for many of the priests and churches of the diocese, a number of which were Incorporated under his supervision.

In 1869 he was married to Agnes E. O'LEARY. Eight children were born to them, four of which, with his window, are living, three sons, Francis J. O'BRIEN, Hugh J. O'BRIEN and James C. O'BRIEN, and one daughter, Agnes M. O'BRIEN.

Inquiry into Death of Two Children and Mother

Given Concentrated Lye

Reason Gone When Mrs. Emma Lutz Administered Poison to Her Two Babes and Herself -
Is Decision of Coroner Kleindienst

The former inquiry was made yesterday by Coroner KLEINDIENST into the deaths of Mrs. Emma LUTZ, 38 years old, and her two children, Norbert and Margaret, 4 ½ and 2 ½ years old, who died early in the week from the effects of concentrated lye, administered by Mrs. LUTZ. The funeral of mother and children will be held this morning at 8:30 o'clock at Miller's undertaking rooms, and at 9 o'clock from Holy Redeemer Church. Interment will be in Holy Sepulchre cemetery.

Charles LUTZ, of No. 122 Cady street, husband of the dead woman, was first sworn. He said he had been married nearly ten years, and that for a year past his wife had been ill and nervous. Last Sunday, he said, she became angry at her little boy, Norbert, and struck him with a small broom. LUTZ said he interfered and took the broom away from his wife. Enraged she turned on him and struck at him several times. "I'll kill you before the day is over," he alleged the woman shrieked. The little boy was afraid to remain in the house with his mother, and LUTZ started to take him away. His wife objected and the trip was abandoned.

When LUTZ was leaving for work on Monday, he said his wife addressed him and said "Good-by forever." He thought nothing of the matter. At 5:45 o'clock that afternoon his son, George, 8 years old, met him on his way home from work and said he couldn't get into the house. He hurried to the house where his wife opened the door and let him in. As she did so, she pointed to the sitting room, where lay the two children on pillows on the floor. The little ones were dead.

LUTZ told the coroner that before the woman had forced the children to drink the lye, she had pinned slips of paper on all of the household effects and her clothing. The slips bore the names of persons to whom she wished to have them given.

Dr. T. T. MOONEY testified as to the autopsy on Mrs. LUTZ's body. She died at the General Hospital on Wednesday morning.

Mrs. Katherine GRABENSTETTER, of No. 250 Berlin street, mother of the dead woman said her daughter had acted strangely before she was married. She said there had been insanity in the family, and that her father and brother had died in the State Hospital. She said her daughter had suffered several strokes of paralysis, but had recovered.

George LUTZ, 8 years old, told of how his mother had abused him, and that on Monday, when he started for the New York Central station to meet his grandmother, his mother bade him good-by.

Mrs. Elizabeth KLEIN, a sister of the dead woman, told of her sister's strange actions. She said with advancing years her condition seemed to become worse.

"It is very evident," observed the coroner, "that this woman was insane. I shall render a verdict that these children came to their death from poison administered by the mother while insane and that she came to her death at the General Hospital from the effects of caustic potash or lye, self administered while insane."

Through Attorney Enters Plea of Not Guilty

Rosalino IPPOLITO, 30 years old, had recovered from his hysterical state sufficiently to be able to appear in police court yesterday and plead to the charge of murder, first degree. The man is accused of having killed Antonio OLLIS, his brother-in-law, in a barn in the rear of the premises at Portland avenue and Bay street a week ago last night. He was arrested at the conclusion of the inquest Thursday afternoon. He collapsed in his cell that night and was removed to the County Hospital, where he has since been under the eye of Patrolman DISPENCE.

IPPOLITO was represented in court by Charles B. BECHTOLD, formerly an assistant district-attorney, and J. Russel BORZILIERI. Mr. BECHTOLD entered a plea of not guilty and asked for an adjournment. He said that in all probability he would ask for a preliminary examination in police court. The hearing was set down for Thursday.

In court IPPOLITO appeared to be nervous. He listened intently to the charge as it was translated by Court Interpreter George CASOLARE. A number of relatives who were in court were allowed to follow IPPOLITO into the ante-room, where they consulted with his attorneys.

The county and police officials think they have a strong chain of evidence against IPPOLITO. His statements made at police headquarters on two days and before Coroner KILLIP at the inquest Thursday are believed to have been sufficient ground for his arrest.

Arthur Augustus MYHILL and Miss Helen THOMPSON INNES THOM, both of this city, were married Friday evening at the home of Mr. and Mrs. George MUTCH, No. 9 Berkshire street. The ceremony was performed by Dr. G. B. F. HALLOCK, of Brick Church, in the presence of a large company of invited guests. Miss Isabelle McADAMS was bridesmaid and James K. BROWN was best man. The bride was given away by Mr. MUTCH. Following the ceremony an elaborate wedding supper was served. Mr. and Mrs. MYHILL will reside on the Summerville boulevard.

Was Organizer of Heman Glass Seed Company

Served In State Assembly

Respected Resident of Greece Succumbs to Illness of Three Years Duration
Partner in Hardware Business at Four Corners Years Ago

Heman GLASS, formerly proprietor of the GLASS Seed Company, of Greece, and a well-known and highly respected man, died yesterday noon at his home, No. 335 (line unreadable) Greece.

Mr. GLASS was born in Stephentown, N. Y., on October 1, 183(0 or 9) When a young boy his parents moved to Lima and there he received his early education, attending the public schools and later being graduated from Lima Seminary, after leaving which he matriculated at Williams College, where he spent three years. He was graduated at Amherst College with Phi Betta Kappa honors in 1854.

After leaving college Mr. GLASS went immediately to New York city, where he taught school for a time. From there he went to Nebraska and engaged in law practice in Omaha. In that city he married Miss Lucy A. GOODWILL on May 10, 1859. A few years later, in 1865, he moved to Rochester and became a partner in a new hardware firm called Glass & Phillips, which conducted a store in Main street near the Four Corners. Mr. GLASS'S connection with the hardware business was short, lasting a little less than two years, but in that time he invented and patented an improvement for the clothes wringer that had just come into notice, and sold his invention for a considerable sum.

On account of failing health, Mr. GLASS was advised by his physicians to move to the country, and in 1866 he purchased the site of his present home and 150 acres of the surrounding land. Selling his interest in the hardware business, he moved into the country, intending to engage in farming. He became intensely interested in outdoor life and made a particular study of seeds and fruit culture. He gradually sold much of his farm land until in 1881 he discontinued farming and organized the Heman GLASS Seed Company. He was the head of this concern until five years ago, when he sold out his interest and retired from active business.

Mr. GLASS was elected to the New York Assembly and served during the term of 1875-76. He was admired by his associates and respected for his broad-minded and conservative views and his unfailing amiability and patience. In 1865 he became a member of Central Presbyterian Church of this city and had been actively interested in that institution ever since. For the past thirty-two years he had instructed the Friendship Class of Central Church, one of the largest Bible classes in the city, and one of the pioneer classes of organized Sunday school work. Mr. GLASS was a man of culture, well versed in literature and art, and his high ideals have had a permanent influence on many of his former Sunday school pupils.

Three years ago Mr. GLASS had a serious illness, from the effects of which he never entirely recovered. Two months ago he was attacked by the same complaint. He recovered slightly and was able to be around until two days prior to his death, when the illness became acute.

Mr. GLASS leaves his wife, three sons, Willard L., H. Sanford and Professor James M. GLASS, two daughters, Mrs. Mor? O. SLOCUM and Mrs. H. Guy HOIT, and seven grandchildren.

No Evidence Against Man Arrested in Ollis Case

Rosalino IPPOLITO had a hearing in police court yesterday on the charge of having murdered Antonio OLLIS, a fruit peddler, on the night of February 25th. Some of the witnesses in the case changed their testimony when they reached police court, and Justice CHADSEY had no alternative but to discharge the defendant.

Relatives recited the details of the finding of OLLIS's body in the barn at Portland avenue and Bay street, and said that IPPOLITO had been with his brother-in-law during the evening of the murder. Charles B. BECHTOLD, appearing for IPPOLITO, declared that the accused man had made a mistake in lying to the police at the start, but had done this to protect others. He said there had been the best of feeling between IPPOLITO and his brother-in- law.

Guiseppe OLLIS, father of the dead man, contradicted himself on the stand, and weakened the prosecution's case in doing so.

"The man has admitted that he lied," observed Justice CHADSEY at the conclusion of the hearing. :These lies are of small consequence." The only question to be considered here is: Did this man commit the crime and is the evidence conclusive on that point? There has been no evidence produced by the prosecution to show that this man is in any way connected with the crime. I dismiss the charge."

The Body of Frank Porcelli Found in the Woodshed of His Boarding House -
Police and County Officials Looking for His Companion

Albion, March 12 - The police officials of Orleans county, assisted by those of surrounding counties, have a tireless search to-day, without result, in endeavoring to secure light on the death of Frank PORCELLI, a resident of Medina, employed as an upholsterer at the furniture factory of S. A. Cook and Company. In East Center street.

The place is conducted by an Italian and a short time ago was raided for being a "speak easy."

From the information furnished by police, it appears that PORCELLI and DODDOZZI left the place about 5 o'clock this morning and the police are unable to learn of any one who saw PORCELLI until about 7 o'clock, when a small girl whose parents conduct the Italian boarding house in a grove fronting on Center and State street in what is known as the Chamberlain homestead, which is the house where PORCELLI roomed, opened the kitchen and stepped into the woodshed for some kindling wood.

The door leading from a veranda on the west side of the house was found to be open and laying on his back on the inside of the door with his feet just inside the door, was the lifeless body of PORCELLI. Not a spot of blood was to be found in the room.

Chief of Police John STORK, of Medina, was notified and with Patrolmen Thomas CLEARY, Henry FULLER and John MOONEY went to the place where PORCELLI was found. The eighteen occupants of the house all claimed not to have heard any shooting or to know anything of the crime. A watchman at the Cook Factory, which is just across the Oak Orchard creek ravine, which is only about fifty feet west of the house is said to have heard shooting in that vicinity about 7 o'clock this morning. The body was cold when found and fully dressed even to the cap which PORCELLI wore when leaving Glenwood avenue, about one-half mile distance.

At 10:30 o'clock Deputy Sheriff Edward McGURN, in Medina; learned of the case and notified Sheriff William M. KENYOU, of this village. Under-sheriff William REDDY and Jailer DANIEL DRENNAN were detailed to Medina to assist in unraveling the mystery. Coroner Dr. Charles FAIRMAN, of Lyndonville, was notified and with Dr. ROGAN, of Medina, examined the dead man and his effects, consisting of letters, etc., but none of which showed a motive for the crime.

PORCELLI was not murdered for his money as over $37 was found in his pocket. His son, Frank PORCELLI, 21 years old, who roomed with his father, was unable to give any information about the matter. He informed the police that his father and he came to the United States four years ago, from Pamermo, Italy, leaving behind his mother, four daughters, and three other sons. He said his father was 48 years old ans had no trouble with anyone that he knew of.

DODDOZZI, the companion of the dead man, could not be located by the police to-day but is said to have a wife and two children living in lower town, Lockport. District-Attorney John C. KNICKERBOCKER, of Albion, was notified about 2 o'clock this afternoon and went to Medina to gather evidence.

Coroner FAIRMAN ordered the body of the dead man taken to the O'REILLY undertaking rooms, Medina, where an inquest will be held Wednesday.

To-night the police were informed that an Italian about 35 years old, 5 feet 1 inches tall, weighing about 140 pounds, with black hair, black mustache, black overcoat and light colored soft hat, which tallies exactly with the description of the man wanted, boarded the 8 o'clock east-bound trolley car at Medina and came to Albion.

The Charge Made by William Appleton

Canandaigua, March 12 - Struck over the head with a club by the man he was befriending, was the recompense received by William APPLETON, a highly respected and prosperous farmer, well past middle age, who resides at Centerfield, about four miles west of this village. According to Mr. APPLETON's story the assault was committed yesterday afternoon after he had allowed John MARINER, who resides but a short distance from APPLETON'S residence to ride home with him.

Mr. APPLETON came to this village with a big load of potatoes and disposed of the tubers. When ready to start for home, MARINER, who knew APPLETON well, accosted the farmer and asked for a ride home. APPLETON readily allowed the man to ride and MARINER got into the rear part of the lumber wagon. When they had proceeded about a mile on their way, Mr. APPLETON states, MARINER suddenly struck him over the head with some instrument, probably a club. The blow produced a large abrasion of the scalp which bled freely but failed to knock APPLETON senseless.

The elder man quickly grappled with his assailant and a tussle ensued with the result that MARINER either fell or was thrown from the wagon. The assailant ran away rapidly and APPLETON returned to this village for the purpose of complaining of the assault and receiving medical treatment. Justice of the Peace Thomas C. PARKHURST listened to an account of the affair and issued a warrant for assault in the third degree.

Mr. APPLETON was wearing a fur cap when the blow was struck and that deadened the force of the blow. Officers are looking for MARINER but he has not as yet been apprehended. It is supposed that the motive for the attack was robbery.

Avon, March 12 - Charles F. HOUSE, of this place, a farmer who owns between 700 and 800 acres of land across the river, is the first of the Western New York agriculturists to introduce Western methods. He has just received a new steam plow. Six plows are suspended from a steel frame, on which is a platform from which the plows are worked. This is dragged by a new gasoline traction engine, which Mr. HOUSE secured last fall. If the outfit does as well as it does on the prairies of the West, he will probably hook on a drag and roller, and a couple of grain drills behind, and do the whole job of breaking the land and sowing at once.

Death of Charles N. Berry - Drafted as a Soldier

Seneca Falls, March 12 - Tyre lost one of its most widely known residents in the death of Charles N. BERRY, familiarly known to hundreds of people in the county as Judge BERRY.

Mr. BERRY was a life long Democrat and several times he was elected a justice of the peace on that ticket. He was an industrious student and was well informed upon many subjects. He was drafted during the Civil war but was rejected by the examining physician at Albany. Nevertheless his name appeared all through the records of the regiment to which he was to have belonged.

Mr. BERRY within the last few years has made his home with his daughter, Mrs. Eugene GREEN. He was married in 1855 to Eliza J. NORTON and they had two daughters, Mrs. GREEN and Mrs. Stuart HILL, of this place. Mrs. BERRY died thirty-two years ago.

Description of Body at Cuylerville

Mount Morris, March 12 - All efforts to locate any relatives of James BALAR, whose body was found at Cuylerville, have proven fruitless, and Coroner BOWEN has given out a description of the man for publication in hopes that some of his family or friends will see it.

The dead man was a Hungarian, apparently about 43 years of age, and had been in this country three years. He was five feet three inches tall, thick-chested and the estimated weight is 155 pounds. He had good teeth, brown eyes, thin dark hair, no beard, wart on the left forefinger, mole on right side of neck, and on his left forearm in India ink the figures "1888" and below this the picture of a heart enclosing the letters "B. J & F. C."

Persons at Cuylerville who were slightly acquainted with BALAR state that he had told them he had a wife and three children, but did not say where they were: also that he had two brothers-in-law residing at Clarena, Erie county.

Located on the Hollenbeck Farm Near Caledonia.

Caledonia, March 12 - Fire was discovered about 4 o'clock this morning in a strawstack on the Andrew HOLLENBECK farm, four miles southeast of this village, on the state road to Avon. An attack was made by George CAMPBELL and his hired men to put the fire out but without success, and the flames were soon communicated to the large barn adjoining.

The basement of the barn was used as a stable for forty milch cows and the efforts of the men and neighbors who had gathered were directed to removing the animals to a place of safety. This was done without accident. The only animal to perish was one pig.

The barn was one of the largest and most complete in Livingston county and was built about fifteen years ago. It contained about fifty tons of hay and a large amount of grain and feed. The buildings was worth about $5,000. The buildings and contents were partly insured.

Clyde, March 12 - Yesterday afternoon Arthur ROGERS, who resides on the William LaRUE farm, two miles north of this village, was in Clyde exhibiting a bottle filled with grasshoppers. The insects were fully developed, very active, and attracted considerable attention, as every person who saw them considered it remarkable that they should make their appearance so early in the season. Mr. ROGERS states that the field near his home where he gathered these grasshoppers was literally "alive" with them.

Bath, March 12 - Following a short illness the death of Mrs. Chester BRUNDAGE occurred last night at her home near this village.

BISBEE, pastor of the First Presbyterian Church, of which the bride is a member. Mr. and Mrs. BREWER will continue to reside in this village.

Farmington Man's Flock Attacked in the Fold

Shortsville, March 12 - It is said to be an unusual thing for dogs to molest sheep when these animals are in the fold in winter quarters, their ravages usually occurring when the sheep are in the pasture, during the spring and summer months, but at an early hour Saturday morning, the flock belonging to Samuel D. YOUNGS, of Farmington, was attacked, and two sheep killed outright, while thirteen other were badly mutilated.

Mr. YOUNGS does not live on the same farm where his sheep are kept, but so did not know of the trouble until aroused by his neighbors, whom the barking of the dogs had awakened. When they reached the place they could plainly see two large dogs in the moonlight, both of the shepherd breed, one yellow and the other black. The sheep had been driven from their shelter to an adjoining lot and were nearly dead from fright. The town will of course pay for the damage done, but the owner will still be a heavy loser, as the sheep were so thoroughly frightened that they will never be as valuable again.

Morris Melman, Angered by Coldness of Object of His Love, Miss Sophia Laffer,
Fails to Accomplish All of Murderous Plan

Mortal Wound In His Own Head;
Woman Not Seriously Injured

Angered because his offer of marriage was refused and despairing of remaining upon terms of friendship with his former sweetheart, Morris MELMAN, 26 years old, of No. 561 East Fifth street, New York, last night shot and seriously wounded Miss Sophia LAFFER, aged 20 years, and then turned the weapon upon himself, firing two shots. MELMAN died shortly after 1 o'clock this morning at the Homeopathic Hospital.

The assault took place on the porch of Miss LAFFER'S home at No. 82 Chatham street shortly after 8 o'clock, Four shots were fired, two taking effect in Miss LAFFER'S cheek and two striking in MELMAN'S head just above the base of the brain. The weapon from which they were fired is a small vest-pocket .22 caliber revolver shown in the accompanying illustration. That Miss LAFFER is still alive is due to the fact that MELMAN aimed in haste and in almost complete darkness.

Following an X-ray examination at the Homeopathic Hospital, where MELMAN was taken immediately after the tragedy, it was given out that he would die within a few hours, as one of the bullets penetrated his brain. He lapsed into unconsciousness after firing the fourth shot.


MELMAN'S victim, Miss LAFFER, was able to tell the story of the affair last night to the police, although one bullet is still lodged in her face. She will bear the marks of the wounds forever, according to physicians who attended her.
(PHOTO - Miss Sophia LAFFER)
According to the story told by Miss LAFFER and information gained from her friends, she became acquainted with MELMAN about a year ago while he was employed by the Meyer & Simon Clothing company as a garment cutter, Miss LAFFER was employed at that time by the Louis Black company. She has two brothers, Z. LAFFER, of No. 140 Vienna street, and Jacob LAFFER, of Seneca Falls.

MELMAN speedily became infatuated with the young woman, who is good-looking and is popular with her acquaintances. He several times asked her to marry him, but was refused, and he left his position in Rochester to go to New York about seven months ago. He wrote regularly to Miss LAFFER, but received no answers to his letters.

This picture is one of two found in MELMAN's pockets after his removal to the hospital. The other shows him seated, his head resting upon right hand and his appearance ?etckening a melancholy frame of mind. The pistol with which he did the shooting is lying on a table in front of him directly before his eyes, the pose conveying the idea that he contemplated its use as a means of ending his life.
(Couple lines blanked out)
woman's face on the right side. He then held the muzzle of the little weapon against his head and fired two more shots, one plowing a furror along the skull and the other entering the head at the base of the brain.

The shots were heard by a number of persons within the house, all of whom rushed to the porch, where Miss LAFFER was found lying across the doorsill, unconscious, and MELMAN crumpled in a heap beside her, blood from the wounds of both forming a dark pool on the steps.

Abraham COPELAND, owner of the house, carried the young woman to her room on the second floor, where his wife and some of the neighbors attempted to stanch the flow of blood. The Homeopathic Hospital ambulance was called and removed MELMAN to the hospital, hospital physicians and Dr. John ZIMMER attending to the wounds of Miss LAFFER.

A detail f policemen from the Second precinct, under the direction of Sergeant William SULLIVAN was on the scene within a few minutes after the tragedy. Detectives WIEDMAN and CHRISTIE were also detailed on the case and conducted an investigation, questioning the girl and some of the neighbors.


Miss LAFFER as soon as she recovered consciousness, told the facts given in the foregoing paragraphs. She said she had never encouraged MELMAN's attentions and had been greatly annoyed by his persistence in pressing his suit. According to Mr. COPELAND, she is an unusually quiet girl and is regarded as a model boarder, seldom having callers or going to the theater or parties with friends.

Little is known of MELMAN by the persons living at the COPELAND house, as he was seen there only at long intervals. He is said to have a number of friends among employees of the Simon company and to have been a steady worker, with no exceptionally bad habits. No traces of liquor were detected by the physicians who examined him at the hospital.

Although Miss LAFFER said that no hint of suicide if his suit was rejected had ever entered into his conversation, his attitude in the accompanying illustration would seem to ludicate(?) a morbid tendency of mind that might indicate possible attack of insanity when the crime was committed. He was of a highly nervous temperament according to the description given by Miss LAFFER, and was an inveterate smoker.

The MELMAN case has a striking similarity to the DEISINGER tragedy of a few days ago, when Miss Frances DEISINGER was shot and killed by Joseph M. BRYERE, whose advances she repulsed. The police, however, ---- no connection between the -----.

Hyronimus MAGIN- Died yesterday at the home of his son, George MAGIN, No. 22 Gilmore street, aged 68 years. He leaves two sons, Charles and George; one daughter, Agnes, and seven grandchildren. Deceased was a member of the Bavarian Benevolent Society and of Branch No. 58, C. M. B. A., of Holy Redeemer Church.

Lucille Agnes ENGLERT, daughter of Edward J. and Pauline WINFIELD ENGLERT, died at the family home, No. 85 Miller street, last night, aged 9 years.

Benjamin SCHERNI?EF, alias Charles FREESE, was arrested yesterday afternoon in a Joseph avenue poolroom at the resident of the Brooklyn chief of police. FREESE as he was known here, is wanted in Brooklyn on a charge of grand larceny. Detective BARNETT and SEINER made the arrest.

Youngster Receives Voltage from Wire Used for lighting

George CARTER, a 12-year-old boy living at No. 554 Smith street, was shocked into unconsciousness early last evening by an electric current that in some manner passed through a guy wire against which he was leaning. The guy wire became entangled with a wire carrying current for an electric light and thus CARTER received the force of the strong voltage, being knocked to the ground by the shock.

A call was turned in for St. Mary's Hospital ambulance, but before it arrived Patrolman James MURPHY had revived the boy by the use of the method taught to members of the police force. CARTER was able to go to his home, although suffering from the effects of the accident.

Former Rochester Man Dies Here After Long Illness

Edward Lovett FAVOUR died in this city Saturday, aged 37 years. He leaves his wife, Gertrude FAVOUR; one sister, Louise FAVOUR, and a brother, Myron HEATH. The funeral will take place from the family home, No. 85 Cameron street, to-morrow afternoon at 2:30 o'clock.

When Mr. FAVOUR was a boy his father lost his life in an accident in Palmyra. After his mother's second marriage he and his step-brother, Myron HEATH, accompanied the father and mother on a trip into Kansas where the father proposed to bring the boys up together on a farm. But Kansas at that time was passing through a period of depression, and Mr. HEATH lost his property. It was then that the family moved back East and Edward, still a boy, entered the store of H. ? Edwards & Company, in St. Paul street, as an office boy, where he remained for some time.

Later he learned the printer's trade in the composing room of the Democrat and Chronicle, where he remained about eight years, eventually becoming a proficient linotype operator. While in Rochester he married, and then moved to Chicago, where he was employed on one of the daily journals. He was taken with tuberculosis while in that city and was sent to the hospital of the International Typographical Union near Denver. But the disease had reached too advanced a stage for his life to be saved.

Harold F. Haywood, Real Estate Dealer, Caught in Flood of Water Pouring
Over Dam When Thrown into Oatka Creek from Boat


Companion Manages To Get Ashore

As the result of the capsizing of a canoe in which he and a companion were making a trip from Mumford to Rochester by way of Oatka creek and the Genesee river, Harold F. HAYWOOD , of the firm of Haywood & Haisted; real estate dealers, was drowned shortly before noon yesterday near the Consolidated Plaster Company's dam at Wheatland Center, formerly called Smith's Mills. His companion, Frank CLARK, of No. 391 Garson avenue, was able to save himself with difficulty, but suffered severely from shock and exposure.

The body of HAYWOOD had not been recovered up to a late hour last night and probably will not appear for several days, as it is thought that an undercurrent carried it beneath the dam and wedged it firmly enough to hold it until the fall of the creek, which is now at high water. Practically all of the town's population, which consists chiefly of miners, searched along the banks of the creek during the greater part of the afternoon and evening.

According to information gathered from the family and friends of the drowned man, the two young men had been fast friends for some time. CLARK was told by his physician that canoeing was an available means of recovering his health, which has been bad for some time. CLARK is 23 years old and HAYWOOD is 29.

Owing to the fact that CLARK is employed during the week, the exercise prescribed for him must of necessity come on Sunday, and yesterday was the first of a number of trips planned by the young men. With the canoe, they boarded a Lehigh Valley train early yesterday morning and were taken to Caledonia, where they left the train and hired a conveyance to take them to Mumford, a distance of little more than a mile.

At the latter place they began their water journey, placing the canoe in Oatka creek just east of the village at a point three miles from where the accident occurred. From the story told by CLARK, it appears that the men floated with the current to within a short distance of the plaster company's dam, when they disembarked and carried the light canoe around the obstruction, placing it in the water below the dam and between it and the bridge running from the plaster mill across the creek to the Wheatland mines.

The craft capsized as soon as the two men again occupied their places and was carried beneath the wall of water which rushes over the dam at this season. From that moment CLARK remembers seeing nothing of his companion, with the greatest difficulty drawing himself out on the bank by means of some shrubbery growing close to the edge. His cries brought assistance from near-by houses and he was carried to the home of Levi PECKINS, where restoratives were administered. He is still in a serious condition.

HAYWOOD is thought to have been forced beneath the surface long enough to produce unconsciousness, as he was an unusually strong swimmer and ordinarily could have covered the short distance to the shore with ease. He wore somewhat heavy clothing, but this would not have hampered him to a dangerous extent.

At this season, the creek at Wheatland as well as at points nearer its outlet, is unusually high, and the current is fully as swift as that of the river. While its width below the dam is only about a hundred yards, it is studded with rocks which would imperil the safety of a swimmer.

Mrs. Edward HARRINGTON, wife of the local superintendent of the plaster company's interests, notified Chief QUIGLEY of the accident shortly before noon, and through him, communicated with Coroner KLEINDIENST. The coroner will take steps to-day for the recovery of the body. Ralph E. HAYWOOD, brother of the drowned man, went to Wheatland with a friend as soon as the news of the accident reached the family, but could find no trace of the body.

Harold HEYWOOD possessed a large number of friends among Rochester business men. He is a son of Dr. Julius F. HAYWOOD, of No. 612 West avenue, where he, with his wife, who was formerly Miss Louise ROCKWOOD, made his home. Besides the relatives mentioned, he leaves one sister, Miss Gladys HAYWOOD.

Picked Up by Detective in Minneapolis - Penniless in Dangerous Quarter of City

Minneapolis, Minn. March 12 - Two 16-year-old girls whose homes are in Rochester, N. Y., were probably snatched from the jaws of moral death by Detective Joe BRUNDAGE to-day. They are now in the care of the matron of the city jail, while the police are endeavoring to find their parents to learn just why they left home and how they got so far away.

The girls are Gladys GARNACHY and Anna STREBER. They were robbed on a train near Fargo and were shipped here, it is said by the ---------, while penniless, to become a burden on Minneapolis.

They are good-looking girls, well educated and neatly dressed. They claim to have left home to visit a relative in Bedford, N. D., but the police place little credence in their story. They assert that after leaving Bedford they were robbed of $20 on a train near Larimore, N. D., and that after describing their experience to the marshal of the town that they were hurried to a train and headed for Minneapolis. They claim that they were on their way back to Rochester and had tired of the journey in the Northwest.

The girls were wandering about the treacherous part of Washington. ----- south, gaping at the lighted saloons and resorts when they were observed by Detective BRUNDAGE. They had already been approached by cadets.

It was evident that the girls were strangers and several persons spoke to them as they walked along the avenue gazing into cafe windows or the gaily illuminated fronts of stores and saloons. The detective, who had watched the movements of the girls, decided that they were lost and when he thought that they were treading on dangerous ground that threatened to engulf them he accosted them. He discovered that they were without means, had not eaten in some time and were ready to accept first offers of assistance that was proffered them, unaware of danger that might follow an acquaintance in that locality. The detective took them to headquarters and they will be held until word is received from their relatives in Rochester.

Miss Sophia Laffer Able to Get About and Talk

With the death early yesterday morning of Morris M. MELMAN, the New York man who attempted to kill pretty Sophia LAFFER, of No. 82 Chatham street, on the porch of her home Sunday evening, the affair is at an end, so far as the police are concerned. MELMAN died without having recovered consciousness after firing two shots into his head at the Chatham street house.

Miss LAFFER is recovering rapidly from the shock and the injuries which she suffered as a result of the shooting. The wounds in her face caused by the two bullets from MELMAN'S gun will cause her no serious inconvenience unless complications set in. She is able to walk about and converse. The bullet that lodged against her cheekbone has been removed.

Those who are familiar with the details of the case are inclined to attribute the crime to a disordered mind. The fact that MELMAN had in his possession photographs of himself and the revolver in suggestive attitudes is considered sufficient proof that his act was the results of a long-considered plan by which he proposed to end his troubles and to satisfy himself that Miss LAFFER would not become the wife of another man.

Many letters that MELMAN wrote to Miss LAFFER are said to have been fervid outpourings of his love for her and vows that she should never give him up for anyone else. All were written in Yiddish, and consequently their contents can not be determined with accuracy.

MELMAN's body has been removed to the morgue by order of Coroner KILLIP and an autopsy will be performed. The inquest will be merely a matter of form, as there is no mystery in the case.

High Water Prevents Work of Dragging Creek

Coroner KLEINDIENST, with several assistants, went to the scene of the HAYWOOD drowning in Wheatland yesterday to conduct a search for the body of the young Rochester real estate dealer. The coroner said last night that nothing could be done at present, as the water is too high and the current too swift to permit of the usual operations for recovering a body.

While the search is given up for the present by the authorities, a number of Wheatland residents are keeping a close watch on the creek. It is the opinion among those who know the creek that the body is wedged beneath the dam or caught between two boulders.

Frank CLARK, of No. 391 Garson avenue, who was with HAYWOOD at the time of the accident and who saved himself by clutching the branches of an overhanging willow tree and drawing himself out on the bank is prostrated with grief over the death of his friend.

The spot where the disaster occurred is one of the most peculiar along the course of the creek. The dam that furnishes power for the plaster company's mill is less than twenty feet high, and in summer the water in the pond above does not approach within several feet of the top. Below the dam, however, is a deep pool studded with rock and half submerged logs, so that in the freshet season a strong swimmer could easily be dashed to death against one of these obstructions. It is thought that HAYWOOD, who was an excellent swimmer, met this fate.

The family is making every effort to recover the body, but so far with no success. The fatal accident has attracted much attention among the friends and business acquaintances of Mr. HAYWOOD.

Claim of Byron Farmer Sustained

Batavia, March 13 - Judge CARTER, of Avon, referee in an action brought by Charles N. GREEN, of Byron, against the Michigan Central Railroad Company, has handed up his decision, awarding GREEN $2,821.22 damages and interest from November 30, 1908, amounting in all to $3,300.13 and against the railroad.

Action was brought by GREEN against the railroad for negligence in the matter of a shipment of lambs on November 18, 1908, from Chicago, Ill., to South Byron. GREEN purchased 970 lambs on the market and contracted with the railroad to ship them. On the day of the shipment a quarantine was established against the foot and mouth disease. The sheep arrived in Detroit, Mich., the next day. GREEN did not learn of their whereabouts until the 24th.

Before that date he secured an order from the state Commissioner of Agriculture permitting the shipment of the sheep and so notified the railroad's agent. On the 25th quarantine was declared in Michigan and it was necessary to sell the sheep and they were sold and slaughtered.

Le Roy, March 13 - Fire damaged the dwelling of Joseph CORCIMIGLIA on North street quite badly last night. The house stands close beside the railroad track. The first indication the family had of the fire was when they heart a crackling sound in the second story. An alarm was immediately turned in and the fire companies responded promptly. When they arrived flames were breaking through the roof, but three streams of water soon had them under control. It is thought the fire started from an overheated stovepipe in the second story. The damage to the house is covered by insurance.

The Trial of Herbert C. Mead in Progress

Judge Thompson Presiding

Defendant Charged with Grand Larceny Alleged to Have Been Committed at Geneva -
The Trial of Don J. Cooper Concluded

Canandaigua, March 13 - At the opening of County Court this morning, sentence was pronounced by County Judge Robert F. THOMPSON on Philip CAVEGLIO, the Geneva Italian, convicted a few days ago by a trial jury of the crime of assault in the second degree. The court sentenced the young man to serve a term at the Elmira Reformatory under the provisions of law governing that institution and its Inmates. CAVAGLIO, if tractable and diligent, can obtain his release in about a year.

The sentence was made to the reformatory instead of to a state prison on account of a recommendation of mercy made by the jury. The members of the jury thought, they said, that the defendant should be punished somewhat for what he had done, but they did not think that he ought to be punished as severely as second degree assault would ordinarily call for. In view of their recommendations, the Court saw fit to impose the lesser sentence.

The trial of Don J. COOPER proceeded to-day with the defendant himself, on the witness stand the greater part of the day District-Attorney SHORT cross-examined the man at much length. From the evidence adduced it appears that COOPER was an unwilling tool in the robbery of the Lehigh Valley Railroad Company, and that COOPER himself did not have anything to do with the actual altering of the time sheets, which he is charged to have forged by altering or changing them so that the time of some men appeared on the sheets, although the men did not perform any work at all. He did, however, receive about $85 of the Monday obtained by the scheme. His colleague in the affair was Thomas RILEY, who has departed for parts unknown, and who has never been arrested, although it is believed that an indictment against the man has been found (didn't get the rest)

Court Ordered Release of Hezekiah Knowles

Poughkeepsie, March 13 - Hezekiah KNOWLES, 41 years old, of Canandaigua, was to-day ordered released from the Matteawan State Hospital for the criminal insane by County Judge HASBROUCK, habeas corpus proceedings having been brought by KNOWLES'S attorney.

The court found that KNOWLES'S sanity had been restored and he is remanded to Ontario county, where he is to be tried for several minor charges. The hospital authorities did not seriously oppose the patient's release. KNOWLES had been an inmate of the institution for two years.

Resident of Dansville Who Died in Rochester

Dansville, March 13 - The remains of Mrs. Henrietta WHITE, who died of pneumonia Friday at the Rochester State Hospital, were brought to Dansville and taken to her home on Upper Main street. The funeral was held Sunday afternoon from the house, Rev. W. H. BROWN, of the Baptist Church, officiating. Mrs. WHITE was born in Dansville, May 16, 1850. Early last fall her youngest son, who had been in poor health for a long time and whose mind had become affected, shot himself. The shock was too much for the grief stricken mother who almost idolized her boy, and last November she was taken to the hospital where it was hoped she might recover from the nervous breakdown. She has been improving and the family expected to bring her home soon. Several days ago, she was taken ill with pneumonia and death resulted.

Mrs. WHITE is survived by her husband John F. WHITE; two sons, Samuel and Harry F. WHITE, and one daughter, Mrs. A. J. WERDEIN, all of this village; also by three brothers and two sisters, Wm. H. DREHMER, of Michigan; J. G. DREHMER, of Bradford, Pa. Charles DREHMER, of Hornell; Mrs. Matilda SCHEELEY, of New York city, and Mrs. F. H. GUNTHER, of Los Angeles, Cal.

Lad Plunges over Cliff in Lower River Gorge

Slipping on the icy edge of a twenty-five foot cliff near the Driving Park avenue bridge, William COSTER, of No. 93 Lorimer street, plunged downward to land on his head on a pile of rocks and received injuries that are likely to cause his death. Physicians of St. Mary's Hospital, where he was taken after the accident, say that he is in an extremely critical condition, having a bad fracture of the skull.

COSTER, who is a boy of 13 years, was walking near the bridge late yesterday afternoon and ventured too close to the edge, slipping on a patch of ice and being unable to recover his footing. Before he could drop to the ground he plunged over the edge of the cliff and landed in a thin layer of snow which covered a mass of rocks and boulders below.

The City Hospital ambulance was called from Hose 10's house, boys who witnessed the accident notified the firemen. The boy was found in an unconscious condition from which he has not recovered.

The scene of the accident is near the Glen House on what is called the "old Indian trail," and is a favorite play ground with youths living in the vicinity.

News of Cracking of Safe of Rushville Bank Proves Fatal
to Mrs. W. I. Jones, Wife of Cashier.

Rushville, March 14 - The Rushville Bank was robbed about 2 o'clock this morning, when several persons living near the bank heard muffled explosions. A few minutes later E. F. HAMMER, a baker, saw three men passing by his place of business, one of whom was a large thickset man and carried a bag over his shoulder.

About 6 o'clock it was found that the bank operated by the Rushville Banking Company had been robbed, an entrance having been made through the back door. The safe was shattered by explosives and the contents looted. The company has given out no statement disclosing the amount of booty, but says that the loss is fully covered by insurance.

The robbers escaped. It is thought here that they went to Rochester by way of Canandaigua.

Between 9 and 10 o'clock in the morning, when Mrs. W. I. JONES, wife of the bank cashier, who had been critically ill for several weeks, learned of the crime, she was so overcome by the shock that she died a few minutes later. Of three daughters born to Eliza and Mary LINDSLEY she was the last surviving one. She was married about nineteen years ago, and has lived her entire life in this vicinity.

Those of Michael Gehan and Francis Philip Nash

Canandaigua, March 14 - Two wills were probated in the surrogate's office yesterday. Michael GEHAN, late a resident of the town of Hopewell, who died about October 5, 1910, left a will that named his son, Patrick GEHAN, of Hopewell, executor, and the surrogate entered that letters testamentary be issued to the son. The estate consists of the homestead and some personal property, and the entire estate is bequeathed to Mary GEHAN, widow of the decedent, to be held by her during her life and to go to the son absolutely at her death. The amount of the estate is not mentioned in any of the papers filed with the surrogate.

The will of Francis Philip NASH, who died in the city of Geneva February 5th, was admitted to probate without opposition, and the court ordered that letters testamentary be issued to three exec---- Katherine C. NASH, of Geneva, widow the decedent; Francis Philip NASH, Jr., son of the decedent, of New York city, and Archibald M. HOWE, a friend of Cambridge, Mass., all of whom were named in the will as the persons desired by the testator to carry out the provisions of the instrument. The will divides the property, the amount of which is not given, among the widow, Katherine C. NASH, and three sons, Francis, Arthur C. and Paul NASH.

Tonawanda Man Tries to Hold Him

Is Kept At Orleans Jail

Judge Signor Holds, However, That Warrant Was Not Effective,
and Allows Accused ti Go - Two Confessed Burglars Given Freedom

Albion, March 14 - In County Court, this afternoon Lawrence SMITH, of Ne?son, Pa - who was arrested here last December while attempting to pass a $50 forged check and who confessed to passing several others on which he later returned the money to his victims, changed his plea to one of guilty and was given a suspended sentence by Judge Isaac S. SIGNOR.

As SMITH and his father were leaving the Court House Jailor Daniel DRENNAN placed him under arrest on a warrant sent here from North Tonawanda charging petit larceny. SMITH was detained in the sheriff's office, and Chief of Police John F. RYAN, of North Tonawanda, was notified. The complainant against SMITH was David GARLOCK, a Tonawanda business man, who is said to have cashed a check indorsed by James SIMMONS. SMITH used the name of A. SIMMONS, E. J. HARDING, Harry FRENCH and Fred HAMILTON on his forged checks here.

When Chief RYAN reached Albion at 4 o'clock, Attorney H. T. REED, who represented SMITH, had obtained a writ of habeas corpus ordering Jailor DRENNAN to discharge SMITH from custody.

The writ, however was not served on Mr. DRENNAN until after the warrant had been indorsed by Justice H. C. TUCKER and he had taken possession of SMITH. The writ was made returnable before Judge SIGNOR in Surrogate's Court District-Attorney J. C. KNICKERBOCKER was called into the case to represent the police officials, and Gerald B. FLUHRER was called to assist REED.

The writ of habeas corpus was amended after it was found defective in that Mr. DRENNAN did not have possession of the prisoner, and Judge SIGNOR --ermitted the names of Mr. DRENNAN. (didn't get this part)
bring him out of Pennsylvania if necessary.

Many letters from friends of SMITH were presented to the court asking for a suspension of sentence, and strong influence from other directions were used to effect his freedom.

Harvey McDONALD and Richard LUNDY, the former from the town of Yates and the latter from Brooklyn, each pleaded guilty to the indictment of burglary, third degree, and grand larceny, in stealing $77.88 worth of dried apples from the Kenyon evaporator in Millers, N. Y., last fall while both were employed at the dryer, and each was given a suspended sentence, directing that each should refrain from drinking and keep out of trouble; should make a monthly report to Attorney Thomas A. KIRBY, of Albion, and send him monthly such sums of money as they could spare until they had refunded the price of the fruit they stole.

The two are to appear at the September term of County Court here. If they violate their parole they are to be returned to Albion as soon as located and receive the sentence for their plea at this term of court, which has a limit of not to exceed ten years in the state prison.

The jurors were dismissed and court adjourned at 4 o'clock for the term.

Medina, March 14 - Mrs. Lydia Eliza DAY, an old and respected resident of Millville, passed away this morning at the age of 77 years. She leaves her husband and one son, Frank DAY, of Maple Ridge.

Dansville, March 14 - Wendell LAUTERBORN took a dose of about two ounces of carbolic acid Sunday morning and died at 1 o'clock that day. About six years ago Mr. LAUTERBORN had a sunstroke while shingling a barn and soon after insanity developed. He has been an inmate of the Rochester State Asylum at different times and would improve and return home.

About six weeks ago Mr. LAUTERBORN was brought home. For the past few days he had suffered a relapse, and he was to have been returned to the asylum again this morning. He found out that he was to be taken and did not want to go. Yesterday morning while his wife went to a neighbor's on an errand he found the carbolic acid and took a large dose that resulted in death.
Mr. LAUTERBORN was 60 years of age, and had lived all his life in Dansville. He leaves only his wife.

Samuel H. WATKINS handed himself yesterday morning in the barn at the home of his sister-in-law, Mrs. A. V. WATKINS, in South street. Mr. WATKINS had been of a nervous, despondent temperament. About five weeks ago his daughter took him to Rochester to visit her. While there he became ill and he was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced insane. He was then removed to an insane asylum.

For the past three years Mr. WATKINS had made his home with his brother and wife, Dr. and Mrs. A. V. WATKINS. Dr. WATKINS died in August. As soon as Mrs. WATKINS learned that her brother-in-law had been taken to an asylum she went to the city and obtained permission to bring him home, as she felt she was carrying out the wishes of her husband.

Mr. WATKINS had improved since his return, but he had a nervous fear that he would be taken to the asylum again, although his sister-in-law assured him of the contrary. Yesterday morning he seemed to be unusually bright. He went out to the barn in the rear of the house to do the chores. When he did not return between 11 and 12 o'clock Mrs. WATKINS went out to call him. She could not find him on the first floor, so she went upstairs, and there found him hanging to the loft. Life was extinct. Dr. DOOR and the coroner, Dr. DRIESBACK, were summoned and the remains were removed to the house.

Mr. WATKINS was born in Almond, N. Y., and was 61 years of age. He leaves two daughters, Miss Maud WATKINS, of Rochester, and Miss Ina WATKINS BRITTON, of Rushford, and one sister, Mrs. George PAYNE, of Batavia.

David Winchell Takes His Own Life

Clyde, March 14 - David WINCHELL, a prominent farmer 70 years of age, residing three miles northwest of this village, committed suicide this morning by hanging. For the past year Mr. WINCHELL had been very despondent and had frequently threatened to hang himself. Yesterday he was unusually morbid and repeated his determination to end his life by suicide.

This morning at 3:30 o'clock Mr. WINCHELL told his wife that he could not sleep and he would dress himself and attend to his chores. About half an hour later Mrs. WINCHELL went downstairs, but was unable to find her husband. As his coat and hat were lying on a chair in the kitchen she inferred that his threats of yesterday had been put into execution. She went to the barn, and in a shed adjoining she discovered the dead body of her husband suspended from the rafters by a rope.

Coroner ALLEN, of Clyde, and WINCHELL, of Rose, were notified, who verified the facts as given.

The deceased leaves his wife and one son, Charles, of Clyde.

During one of his morbid moods recently the deceased made every preparation for his funeral and interment, such as selecting his bearers, the minister to preside, the funeral director, the hymns to be sung and the quality and expense of the casket and other funeral supplies.

Automobile Goes it Alone in Main Street East

An accident that had its ludicrous as well as its serious side occurred about 10 o'clock yesterday morning at Main and North streets, when an automobile owned by A. W. HOPEMAN, of No. 39 Lake View Park, went on the rampage and; before it cold be subdued, shoved Charles SCHMIDT, of No. 238 Bay street, through one of the plate-glass windows in the new Sibley addition. SCHMIDT escaped with a few small cuts and bruises.

The machine is a small runabout which Mr. HOPEMAN, who is a member of the contracting firm in charge of work on the addition, left standing on the North street side. The engine was not running. (didn't get the rest)

Convicted By Jury Of Murder In The First Degree

To Seek New Trial

Justice Benton Will Impose Sentence Friday

Verdict Reached Quickly

Jury Gets Case at Noon and Reports Agreement at 3:45 -
First Defendant Convicted of Murder in First Degree Since William Brash,
Found Guilty in 1906

Domenico DI PASQUALE, who was on trial all last week in Supreme Court, charged with the shooting of Calogera(?) POLIZZI in Front street on November 13, 1910, was found guilty of murder in the first degree by a verdict of the jury returned at 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon.

From several points of view, the jury's verdict stands without precedent in Monroe county. Never before in this county has a jury convicted a man of a murder to which another had confessed, and the fact that the defendant's brother maintained to the last that he was the guilty man probably places the verdict almost without a precedent in the state. District-Attorney BARRETT maintained that the "confession" was a "frame-up" based on perjured testimony, and the verdict stands as evidence conclusive that the jury took the same view of the case.


Never before in Monroe county has an Italian been found guilty of the crime of murder in the first degree. Not since William BRASCH was convicted on December 20, 1906, of murdering his wife, Roxanna, has any person been adjudged guilty of first-degree murder in this county, although several defendants have been tried on that charge. The last of these was John KLEMA, who was convicted last winter of murdering his wife. In that case, however, the jury found the defendant guilty of murder in the second degree.

Justice BENTON has fixed Friday morning as the time for imposing sentence on DI PASQUALE, and at that time he will hear any motions the defense may desire to make J. Russell BORILLERI, DI PASQUALE's attorney, told the Court yesterday afternoon that he would move for a new trial.

Woman Then Set House on Fire and Vainly Attempted Suicide

Clinton, Conn., March 14 - The mystery surrounding the burning of the home of Alfred FELTDRAPPLE, in Killingworth, yesterday, and the disappearance of his wife and 3-year-old daughter, was cleared up by the finding late to-day of Mrs. FELTDRAPPLE and her confession to the medical examiner that she "had wrung the neck of her daughter and locked her in the house."

She did not remember, she said, anything about setting the house on fire.

After killing her child, she said, she attempted to kill herself by pounding her head with a hammer, and then tried to cut her throat, but her knife was too dull. Failing in these attempts she went to the Hammonasett river and jumped in, but the water was so cold she could not stand it, and she went to the home of friends, three miles away.

A man, who gave the name of George LAGING, undertook to leap into the Genesee river from the Andrews street bridge late yesterday afternoon. But for the promptness of Constable Charles O'LEARY, of the Ninth ward, LAGING would have accomplished his purpose.

O'LEARY was on his way to St. Paul street, and when about half way across the bridge, he saw an elderly man remove his overcoat and throw it upon the walk. Then the man removed his undercoat and vest. O'LEARY realized that something was about to happen and he quickened his pace toward the man. The latter suddenly grasped the iron railing with both hands and started to leap over it. O'LEARY seized the man, just as his body was half over the railing.

Struggling every inch of the way, O'LEARY marched his captive back across the bridge and out Andrews street to St. Paul. There he felt his strength weakening and called for help. Some one ran to the Franklin street station, and Special Policeman LOUTH hurried to St. Paul street. He found O'LEARY in a desperate struggle with the man, who acted as though insane. Together the policeman and constable took the man to the station.

"What were you trying to do?" inquired O'LEARY of LAGING.
"I want to get rid of myself," was the reply.
"What for?"
"Well, I've had trouble with my son, and I'm tired of living," declared the man.
Captain RYAN saw LAGING had been drinking, and that he was evidently in a despondent mood. He summoned a patrol wagon and had LAGING removed to the County Hospital. There he will be treated. LAGING says he is a foreman for a contractor in the city. He is about 65 years old. He declined to say where he lived. A charge of intoxication was made against him at the police station.
