Horse Released but Was So Badly Burned That Flesh Dropped Off.
Special Dispatch to Union and Advertiser.
SENECA FALLS, June 13. The fire department was called out
last night to the barn of Norman BEACH in Garden street. The flames,
which started from overheated hay in the loft, had gained such headway
that nothing could be saved and building and contents were destroyed.
A horse was the only thing taken from the building and was
turned loose. It was found later about half a mile from the building,
but so badly burned that great pieces of flesh had dropped from its body
and it was at once shot.
Mr. BEACH's loss will reach $400 with no insurance.

WESTCOTT BITTEN BY A MAD DOG
Dr. GOLER Will Send Him to Pasteur Institute.
Stray Cur With Rabies Said to Have Been Harbored by J.H. McQUAIN of
Bit Several Dogs Before Attacking WESTCOTT and All Became Violent and
William B. WESTCOTT of 51 Brooks avenue will be sent to Pasteur
Institute in New York City by Health Officer GOLER to-night because it
has been discovered that he was bitten on Tuesday of last week by a
setter dog, which has since been killed and pronounced by a veterinary
surgeon to have been suffering with rabies.
The dog, it is alleged by Dr. GOLER, had been harbored for
several weeks previous to attacking WESTCOTT by J.H. McQUAIN of 47
Brooks avenue, and had bitten at least three other dogs in the
neighborhood, all of which became violent after being bitten and were
killed by their owners. On Tuesday of last week, after the three dogs
had been killed, the animal attacked WESTCOTT, who lives next door to
McQUAIN, and bit him in the hand.
Word was then sent to the health office, and, in the absence of
Dr. GOLER from the city, Commissioner CULTER took the case in hand.
DAMAGES ASKED FOR LOST HAND

Jacob SALMON Asks Damages Against Village of Brighton
Several interesting actions are ready for trial in Supreme
Court to-day. Justices DAVY and DUNWELL are both holding court and are
rapidly disposing of the causes submitted to them.
The case of Mary MULL against CURTICE Brothers Company, was
placed on trial before Justice DAVY. The plaintiff is a young woman who
at one time was employed in the canning factory of CURTICE Brothers.
On the 9th of December last the plaintiff was injured while in
the employ of the plaintiff. She was working among the machinery and in
some way her hand was caught in the machinery. The hand was cut off.
She seeks $5,000 damages from the canning company. The defense is that
the plaintiff was negligent, and that had she exercised ordinary caution
the accident would not have occurred. Charles ROE is attorney for the
plaintiff and C.D. KIEHEL for the defendant.
The case of Jacob SALMON against the village of Brighton, was
placed on trial before Justice DUNWELL. SALMON lives at 16 Cole street
in this city; Abraham BENEDICT is his attorney. Five thousand dollars

workmen had left open. SALMON drove into this hole, and he was quite
badly hurt. William N. COGSWELL appears for the village of Brighton.
Frank ANSENBERG Injured Sunday Night on Lyell Avenue.
Unconscious in the Roadway Several Hours Before Being Discovered.
Died Yesterday Afternoon at St. Mary's Hospital Coroner SIBLEY
Investigating the Case.
Coroner Wallace SIBLEY is to-day investigating the death of
Frank ANSENBERG which occurred yesterday afternoon at St. Mary's
Hospital, and was caused by falling from his wheel on Lyell avenue, near
Otis station, Sunday night.
ANSENBERG lived at Tony LAUER's hotel, corner of Vincent and
St. Paul streets, where he was employed as a stableman. He borrowed a
wheel at 11 o'clock Sunday evening and started for a ride towards
Gates. When near Otis station, while on his way home, about 11 o'clock,
the wheel struck a stone in the cinder path, and the rider was thrown
over the handle bars, the fall rendering him unconscious.
ANSENBERG lay in the roadway alongside of the cinder path, in
an unconscious condition, until he was discovered at 2 o'clock Monday
morning by some farmers who were driving to the city. Water was thrown
on him and he recovered his senses in a short time. He was taken to
The only ill effects which ANSENBERG felt as a result of his
fall were pains in the stomach. Monday afternoon he went to the office
of Dr. Hedley C.W. GRAHAM, 545 St. Paul street. He was advised by Dr.
GRAHAM to go to his home and rest. ANSENBERG did this, and his condition
remained the same until yesterday afternoon, when he had a hemorrhage.
Dr. GRAHAM was then summoned, and seeing that ANSENBERG's condition was
serious had him removed to St. Mary's Hospital early yesterday
afternoon. His death occurred at 5 o'clock in the afternoon.
Dr. GRAHAM informed Coroner SIBLEY of the case. After viewing
the remains the coroner had the body removed to the morgue. An autopsy
will be performed this afternoon by West Side Coroner's (didn't get rest
Position in the Line Changed by Marshal GRAHAM.
Was Intended to Have the City's Guest in Middle of Marching Column.
Col. GRAHAM Gives Reasons for Change Column Will Move at 2 o'clock
Chief Marshal James S. GRAHAM, in charge of the OTIS day
parade, announced this morning that it had been decided to change the
position in line assigned to Maj.-Gen OTIS, the honored guest of the
city, from the center to the head of the column. The 140th Regiment,
which was Maj.-Gen OTIS' regiment in the Civil war and will be his
personal guard of honor Friday, will also be with the general at the
head of the line.
It was intended and decided a few days ago to have Maj.-Gen
OTIS ride in the center of the column with his guard of honor. But it
has occurred to Marshal GRAHAM that if Gen. OTIS rode in the center of
the line that when the head of the column reached the reviewing stand on
Plymouth avenue it would be necessary to go back and pick him up and
cause a serious delay. For this reason it has been decided to have
Maj.-Gen. OTIS at the head of the column. The marshal and staff will
come first, of course, and directly following will be Maj.-Gen OTIS and
the 140th Regiment.
Marshal GRAHAM said this morning that the column would move
promptly at 2 p.m. Friday, and that if the organizations were not in
line they would be left behind. Because of the fact that Plymouth
avenue narrows just south of Atkinson street, it has been decided to
have the reviewing stand at the head of Atkinson instead of just south
of there as at first proposed. The line of march has not been changed.
The column, as stated yesterday, will go down State street to Brown, to
enable more people to see the parade.

Feared That Engineer JOHNSON Will Lose His Mind Assailants Under
Edward A. JOHNSON, the Lehigh Valley engineer who was brutally
assaulted at Rochester Junction last Thursday night by four men, is very
ill and from the fact that at times his mind is a blank it is feared
that the beating he was given by his assailants will cause him to lose
his mind. The assailants of the engineer have been held for the grand
jury. They are Peter MORRISON, Patrick O'BRIEN, Henry VERNEY and
William BENZEL. They were arrested by Deputy Sheriffs ABBOTT and
POLLOCK. Bail has been furnished in the sum of $300 each and they have
The assault on JOHNSON was brutal and unprovoked, the object of
the assailants being robbery. As the engineer stepped from the cab he
was pounced upon by four men. He was beaten over the head with a blunt
instrument and his watch and chain and money were stolen. O'BRIEN was
arrested soon after the assault was committed and the arrest of the
others by the sheriff's deputies followed.

Four truants escaped from the Truant school on North street
last Monday night. The boys were on the second floor of the building
and with a rope made of blankets and sheets they let themselves down to
the ground. Then they scaled the fence and got away. Charles COLLISTER,
Charles YEARDON, Willie McDONALD and Timothy ELLIOTT are the youths who
got away. YEARDON and McDONALD have since been captured and returned to
