Martin Welch,
whose home is in the town of Phelps, about three miles north of Geneva, was in the city last Monday, driving a white horse hitched to a Democrat wagon. He was driving out from hitching sheds of A. E. Smith, and when opposite Kelleher & Malone's new barn, the horse became frightened at the sudden starting up of the concrete mixer and dashed out of the alley. When at the center of Seneca street, the horse swerved and Welch was thrown out of the wagon, landing on his head and shoulders on the railroad track and hard asphalt near Sweet's corner. A crowd assembled in a half minute and he was borne senseless into the drug store. There a brief examination disclosed that his collar bone and an arm were broken and he was fearfully injured about the head. A little later he was taken to the hospital in the ambulance where his injuries were attended to by one of the hospital corps. Dr. Sweet says he was badly injured, but thought not beyond recovery. We trust it may so prove.

Yesterday afternoon at 3 o'clock Rice McCauley, of Stanley, was driving from Potter with Edward McAllister's horse and buggy, when at Holbrook's Corners, the horse started to run and Mr. McCauley was unable to control him. He did not stop until the buggy hit the lamp post at the town pump. He cleared himself of it and went on to the barn. Mr. McCauley was thrown some twenty feet, striking his head and shoulders. He received severe injuries. The buggy was a complete wreck. The horse has been known to run away several times before this.

Saturday, while Charles Maine was returning home from delivering a load of potatoes at the New York Central yards, the kingbolt of the wagon reach broke as he was driving down Exchange street hill. As the tongue dropped, the horses freed themselves from the wagon and Mr. Maine jumped. The wagon by this time had gained considerable headway and a moment after Maine jumped the tongue ran into an obstruction and threw the wagon twenty feet in the air. It landed bottom side up. Had Mr. Maine remained in the wagon he would have been undoubtedly killed or at least severely injured. The horses ran but a short distance before they were captured. The harness was slightly damaged.

Michael "Strong Arm" Ford,
45 years old, and the father of a large family, was struck by a freight engine near the State street  crossing of the New York Central at noon today, and strange to relate he escaped with but a few bruises. According to witnesses of the affair, Ford was intoxicated and was walking along the tracks towards the State street crossing from the direction of Exchange street when the freight train, moving slowly, approached from the rear. Ford did not heed the warnings of Flagman Vanderbilt and others, but stubbornly stood his ground until the pilot beams on the engine caught him in the small of the back and he was thrown thirty feet across some semaphore wires. He lay as if dead. Efforts were being made to summon the City Hospital ambulance and some surgeons, and after a furor of excitement had been created in the neighborhood, Ford arose, shook himself, mopped the perspiration off his forehead with his hand and shuffled up State street in the direction of Genesee. As far as can be ascertained he was not injured.

One of the oddest experiences on record happened to Mr. Fred Appleton, a resident of Gorham street, recently. Some time ago Mrs. Appleton lost a valuable diamond from her ring and failed to recover it, although she searched in every corner. The stone had been given up as lost, until recently while visiting at Sodus, Mr. Appleton felt something hard in his shoe and removing the shoe, he found the diamond. It is probable that the stone fastened on his stocking and from there it was transferred to the shoe.

of No. 313 Lake street had two ribs on his right side fractured and was otherwise severely injured late yesterday afternoon as the result of an unusual accident. Arnold is employed by O. Goodelle and was driving a team along Preemption street towards the Goodelle farm, north of the Driving park. Two other horses walked in the rear of the wagon, a rope attached to their heads being tied about Arnold's waist. Near the Driving park the horses suddenly jumped from the right to the left side of the wagon, pulling Arnold backwards into the box. He struck on his right side. Some farmers witnessed the accident. Arnold was able to go home and it was not until after 7 o'clock last evening that Dr. H. D. Weyburn was called to attend to his injuries.

Mrs. John E. Brennan,
of No. 93 Exchange street, sustained a broken left forearm yesterday afternoon in a peculiar manner. Her husband, ex-Fire Commissioner Brennan, was sitting in a hammock on the front porch and Mrs. Brennan started to sit in it also. The combined weights broke a rope on one end and the occupants fell about a foot. In falling Mrs. Brennan put both hands back of her for protection. She careened on her left side, falling on her arm. Drs. C. C. Lytle and G. B. Young were summoned and reduced the break.



James Stapleton,
the 10-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Patrick Stapleton, of the corner of Lewis and Main streets, is at the city hospital minus his right foot as the result of an accident Saturday afternoon.

Before his father could stop the horses, the boy's right foot, near the ankle, had been terribly lacerated. Assistance was speedily summoned and the injured lad was hurried to the City Hospital. Dr. C. D. McCarthy, who was in attendance, found that nothing could be done to save the foot and it was amputated near the ankle. The boy is resting comfortably today and is expected to fully recover from the shock occasioned by the terrible accident.



From Geneva Daily Times 11 July 1905

A number of residents of Little Italy in Torrey Park are much agitated just now over the case of Peter Mungro, who is wanted by police for discharging a revolver within the city limits. Mungro is in hiding and his wife and small five children are badly in need of his aid in securing the sustenance that life requires. Mungro got drunk on the afternoon of Sunday, June 25, and started to clean up several residents of the colony. He created a disturbance at the home of Dominick Versaci, on North Sherrill street and in an altercation that followed he fired four shots from a revolver at the owner of the house. Chief Kane was called to quell the disturbance. He couldn't find Mungro and arrested Versaci charged with intoxication. The prisoner acknowledged to the chief that he had been a target for Mungro's bullets, but when he was asked to make a complaint he declared before the court that he knew nothing of the shooting. Several friends endeavored to have him make a complaint but he refused. Judge Wyckoff was disgusted with his actions and fined him $10 for intoxication. He then issued a warrant charging Mungro with violating a city ordinance in discharging a firearm.

The Italians in the colony misinterpreted the action of the judge and thought that a warrant had been issued charging Mungro with an attempt to kill Versaci and that in the event of his capture he faced a long term of imprisonment. Mungro stayed away from his home for about a week and the matter appeared to have been forgotten. One night about a week ago he returned but was informed of the existence of the warrant and again disappeared. Several times since then in the dead of night, he is known to have visited his family, all the time fearful of arrest. Chief Kane was of the opinion that the man was really in hiding in the colony, but a thorough search failed to reveal him. His friends always asserted that he was not in the city. The case reached a climax this morning when Mungro's mother and Joseph Madia, an interpreter, appeared in court and tried to have the man tried without his being present in court. Chief Kane informed them that such a course was impossible. He tried to make the Italians believe that the charge against Mungro was not a serious one and he could only be fined $50 for the offense, but the woman was suspicious that there was something back of it all and she pleaded that the trial be held without the man. Finally Madia told Chief Kane that he would make an effort to have Mungro appear in court and be sentenced. He was not sure that the man would consent to give himself up, fearing that what his friends told him about the long sentence might prove true. The offense with which Mungro is charged is punishable under the provisions of the city charter by a fine of not less than $1 and not more than $50 and imprisonment in the Ontario County jail one day for every dollar of fine imposed providing that the fine is not paid. Mungro's friends will pay his fine if he will only give himself up.

George Franklin,
an Italian, twenty-three years old, residing at the corner of Jackson and Center streets was arrested at 7:45 last night by Policeman McNerney, charged with attempting to shoot John Taney of No. 52 Center street. His case will be disposed of some time during this afternoon. According to the story told the police by Taney, he, Thomas Murray and Daniel Claffey were crossing Lewis street near Exchange when Franklin passed. He bumped against Taney, the act seemingly being with intent. An argument followed and Franklin threatened Taney. The latter in self defense struck the Italian in the face. Franklin then rushed towards his boarding house on Jackson street and Taney returned to the Park hotel. Very soon Franklin appeared on the east side of Exchange street opposite the Park hotel. He had his hand in right coat pocket, and sneeringly dared any man in the big crowd that had collected across the street to come over and fight him. No one seemed inclined to accept the challenge. Patrick Cass of Clinton street who was standing nearby called to Policeman McNerney, who was at the Central station. Franklin saw the policeman coming and he started to run with the officer in hot pursuit. Franklin dashed through Jackson street and was out of sight when the policeman arrived there. After a search of twenty minutes, Franklin was found under a bed tick in a small clothes press in what is known as the "Poor House," block on Jackson street. He was badly frightened. McNerney handcuffed that man and took him to the station. The prisoner's resemblance to Tony Scotzo, the murderer of Rocco Sereva, caused a big crowd to congregate at the station and rumors gained in circulation that the murderer had been captured. When searched no weapons of any nature were found on Franklin. He was locked up. This morning subpoenas were issued for a number of men who were witnesses of the affair. When examined none of them would swear that they saw the Italian have any weapon in his hand. Taney has no charge to make against him, but because of a reputation the man is alleged to have earned for bothering women and girls in the eastern part of the city he will be arraigned, charged with using abusive language in that he used vile names in addressing the crowd in front of the Park hotel last night.

Balls had sold the calf to Louis Kroll, of the local firm of Wilkins & Kroll, of Castle street. He was leading it out of the lot when the cow, with head lowered, rushed at him. Balis was taken unawares and before he could jump out of the way was pinioned with much force against a post. Kroll and others drove the cow off and prevented Balis from being more badly injured. The calf was delivered to the butcher all right.

Roy Dunham
and Charles O'Reilly, two well-known young men, had a narrow escape from drowning while sailing on the lake Saturday afternoon. The boat was about at Stony Island when it was struck by a gust of wind and rain capsizing it. The young men clung to the upturned craft until their plight was recognized by lake shore dwellers in the vicinity, who came to their rescue. When taken from the water, although both are good swimmers, they were in an exhausted condition. Dunham and O'Reilly walked back to town.



Sunday evening while driving in Main street, Mrs. T. P. Murray and her sister, Miss Honora McCarthy, had a narrow escape from serious injury. The horse which Mrs. Murray was driving shied slightly at a Rochester & Eastern car and caught the line in some manner. As Mrs. Murray stooped to disengage it, the horse suddenly kicked one hoof, striking her in the left shoulder, inflicting painful bruises but fortunately no serious injury. Miss McCarthy, in attempting to get out of the carriage, fell beneath it and one wheel passed over her neck, causing a painful injury. One thill of the carriage was broken but otherwise no damage was done to the rig. The occurrence is a strange one, as the horse has always been considered absolutely gentle and it is thought sudden fright may have caused it to act as it did. At last reports both ladies were recovering from their injuries and no serious results are anticipated.

Canandaigua, N. Y. - Charles Moore,
of Montana, has been in town the past few days trying to gain some knowledge as the whereabouts of his relatives, if any are living, who were residents of this place when ran away from home about thirteen years ago. Moore has been unable to definitely locate any of them. He was related to John Moore, who died some time ago, and the only clue he has to lead him to believe that any of the latter family are alive is a letter written some months ago by one of Moore's daughters, who lived here only a short time after her father's death. In this letter the young woman wrote of her intention to go to Montana to live. But Moore has never been able to locate her whereabouts if she went to Montana as she expected. Moore is about 22 years of age. He and his family were living in Canandaigua about fourteen years ago, but removed to Buffalo. A short time thereafter, and at the age of 9 years, he started west to seek adventure, and he has found them, having had many interesting experiences in the wilds of Montana.



Gorham, N. Y. - Another runaway occurred here yesterday afternoon. Samuel Perry was driving a horse hitched to a light democrat containing an undertaker's outfit with satchels and blankets.

The horse is owned by C. M. DeGraff. Runaways are getting to be every day occurrences in this village.

Yesterday afternoon a team belonging to William Squiers, Foster street, and attached to a heavy wagon, were left standing in front of his residence by Mr. Squiers while he went into the house for a moment. Some children coming along the street rattling tins frightened the horses, which started to run. Mr. Squiers' little daughter, Mildred, was standing near the wagon and was struck by some portion of the rigging, injuring her about the head. She was removed to the Memorial Hospital, where her injuries were found to be not of a serious nature, consisting mostly of a painfully bruised ear and other bruises. The horses were stopped after running a short distance and little damage was done to the rig.



Last Wednesday, Judson Smith and Benjamin Eberhard, two employees of the Interlake Telephone company, had an experience which they will probably remember for some time and from which they were fortunate to escape with their lives. They were driving on the west lake shore road and when near Freer's Landing started to turn around. The road at that place runs near a deep ravine and in turning the wagon, was backed too far with the result that horse, wagon and men went over the steep bank and rolled nearly fifty feet to the bottom. Mr. Smith sustained a cracked rib and his companion was slightly bruised, while the horse suffered a few slight cuts. The escape of the two men from death or serious injury was little short of miraculous.

The complainant was his wife, Lottie M. Sprague, of this city. Sprague was brought here last night by Policeman Hawkins and was left at the station in the custody of Acting Captain Kuney pending the arrival  of Judge Wyckoff. Sprague was inclined to be "fresh" and curtly informed Kuney that "if the cadi didn't put in an appearance shortly that he wouldn't wait." Kuney replied that he thought he would, gently hinting that the alleged wife-abandoner was under arrest, even if he didn't think he was. When Judge Wyckoff arrived the man pleaded not guilty to the charge of abandoning his wife. He asked permission to see her and the judge gave him one hour in which to have some of his friends bring the wife into court. Upon hearing this Sprague told Judge Wyckoff that he better be careful how he used him and the judge taught the man a lesson by ordering him locked up. This morning Sprague wanted to become reconciled to his wife and a compromise was effected. The man paid $6.90 costs and he promised to take Mrs. Sprague to Rochester with him. In the Flower City Sprague is employed as foreman of the carpenters at work on a tank the Rochester Railway company is having built on the river flats. A dispatch from Rochester says that last night when Sprague was arrested there he made the remark "that he would go to prison before he would support his wife's lazy daughter." From this remark it is inferred that Mr. Sprague married a widow with a daughter and that he and the step-daughter didn't get along very well.

The home is small and unhealthfully situated in a swamp. Last week the dreaded disease of scarlet fever broke out in the home and the baby died.

They were destitute and the poor mother, who was weakened from the loss of food and overwork, was unable to properly care for the sick ones. The town authorities were informed of the terrible condition of the family and immediately took action to relieve the suffering.

Mrs. George Chamberlain,
who resides near Cheshire, attempted suicide last Friday evening by taking a dose of Paris green. Dr. O. J. Hallenbeck was hurriedly summoned by telephone and together with Dr. John Hutchens of Cheshire, succeeded in administering treatment which it is thought will be successful as the young woman who is only twenty-three years of age is still alive and at last reports was progressing favorably. Grief over the death of her husband who succumbed to heart disease the Monday previous while chasing a runaway horse is given as the reason for the attempted suicide.

Roy Noble,
a driver in employ of H. L. McDuffie, of this city, was severely shocked by the electric storm yesterday morning. When the storm broke he was driving a team of horses attached to an empty wagon on a cross road between the Carter road and Exchange street, about three miles from the city. The storm had only been in progress a few minutes when the lightning stuck a telephone pole within  a rodof Noble and his team. Noble was thrown head first out of the wagon and both of the horses were stunned, one of them falling to the ground. It was some minutes before the downpour of rain revived Noble. Upon opening his eyes he saw that one of the horses was down. At first he thought it was dead, but on shaking its head he saw that it was alive. After considerable work he was finally able to get the horse on its feet. After getting his wagon and harness to rights, Noble took notice of the pole which was shattered. It was less than fifteen feet from the wagon and horses.

An exciting runaway occurred in Seneca street shortly before 2 o'clock this afternoon. A team of horses owned by Sidney A. Ritter broke away and ran up Seneca street throwing Mr. Ritter and Harvey Case, who was riding with him. Both men escaped injury. Mr. Case had just accepted an invitation from Mr. Ritter to take a ride and got into the wagon at the lower end of Seneca street. When the team was in front of Fitzwater's shoe store, one of the horses became frightened and kicked over the tongue. With this the horses started to run and both men jumped. Mr. Case was thrown to the pavement but escaped with a few bruises. Ritter landed on his feet. The tongue of the wagon broke, which freed the horses from the wagon. They ran nearly up the hill where they stopped and fell as they turned onto Main street. They were caught shortly after they fell.

Ptomaine poisoning caused, it is thought, by eating cottage cheese which was served at their Sunday dinner, came near causing the death of Mrs. Charles Brocklebank, Main street north, and her two children, Dorothea, 12-years old, and Eliot, 9-years old. Dorothea was taken very sick about five o'clock and shortly afterward Mrs. Brocklebank and Eliot were seized with same symptoms. Mr. Brocklebank, who had not eaten of the cheese, hurriedly summoned Dr. Warner. On arriving at the house, the doctor realized the danger of the case and immediately telephoned for Dr. Armstrong and a nurse. The doctors and the nurse worked steadily until midnight to save the lives of the victims. At one time the pulse of the girl became so weak that injections of nitroglycerine were administered. The sufferers who are reported to be on the road to recovery will be confined to their beds for some time by the severity of the attack.

He was carrying a large roll of wire fencing from the freight house to its destination, when the wagon struck a hollow on Main street, the wire rolled off, the horses became frightened and started up, and Walters was thrown over the front of the wagon, between the whiffletree and the wagon box, in such a way that he was held there. The horses ran as far as the post office, when one of them fell, and bystanders held the other one until Walters was extricated. He was considerably shaken up, but otherwise uninjured. Onlookers expected that he would surely be killed and his escape seems almost miraculous.

While Mr. Raymond, assisted by a couple of young men, were putting the harness on the animal a few days ago, they were given a lively tussle.

After the horse had been harnessed, Mr. Raymond attempted to get into the carriage, but caught his leg on the step which frightened the horse. As it started to run away, Mr. Raymond fell to the ground, both wheels passing over his body. The horse ran but a short distance. Mr. Raymond was considerably shaken up but no bones were broken.
