An Agent of the High Art Portrait Company Held for Trial

William SPORT, the agent of the High Art Portrait Company, against whom the
charge of petit larceny was made by a woman who claimed that he had obtained
25 cents from her on false representations as to the cost of enlarging a
portrait, was arrested yesterday morning on a warrant issued by Judge KEELER on
Tuesday. He was taken before the judge, who decided to postpone the case until
November 6th, when he will be tried by a jury. Although the amount of money
secured by SPORT, as the agent calls himself, is small, the case is one of
considerable importance, as a large number of Germans claim to have been
victimized in the same manner as was the woman at whose instigation the prisoner was
Patrick POWERS, of Avon, who drank about a quart of whisky while taking
a short ride Tuesday evening, and was locked up very much under the
influence of the liquor inside of him, was paroled, as he was known to be ordinarily
a sober man.
William FLAHERTY and Peter DOYLE, tramps from Mt. Morris and Nunda,
arrested early yesterday morning, when they were found sleeping in Reynolds
Arcade, were paroled upon promising to select less conspicuous resting places
during the remainder of their sojourn in Rochester.

John Rosenbauer Instantly Killed by a Central-Hudson Locomotive

John ROSENBAUER, whose home is at No. 373 West Maple street, was struck and
instantly killed by the engine of a gravel train while he was walking on the
track of the Falls road, near the Hague street crossing, last evening, on his
way home from work.
The train was in charge of Conductor POTTER and the engine was driven
by Engineer John RISING. It was moving slowly westward at the time,
preparatory to backing in on the branch. ROSENBAUER was walking ahead of the train, but
the engineer supposing that he would step from the track did not stop his
engine. ROSENBAUER was thrown directly in front of the engine, and the driving
wheels passed over his neck, severing the head from the body.
ROSENBAUER was 70 years old. Coroner GRAHAM was called and will hold an
inquest this afternoon.

Sunday evening, at Washington Rink Miss Anna Eva FAY, a spiritualistic
medium of remarkable powers and great reputation will give a seance at Washington
Rink Sunday evening. Her manifestations are described by those who have
witnessed them as of the most interesting nature and quite inexplicable on any
non-spiritualistic theory. Miss Eva FAY herself is a sincere spiritualist. Her
manager does not pretend to advance any theory as to how her feats are
performed, but simply challenges any one, however skillful in legerderrain, or well
acquainted with necromantic machinery to equal or explain them. Miss FAY had
been in Europe, up to last January, where she attracted a great deal of
attention. In the house of William CROOKES, F. R. S., editor of the Quarterly
Journal of Science, she gave a remarkable exhibition of her powers, since famous
throughout the scientific world under test conditions such as, probably, have
never been submitted to by any other medium. Her seance here will excite the
greatest interest both among spiritualists and scientific men.

witch the world with them in a week or two.

--The foot-ball team did not go to Ithaca yesterday. The look of the weather
in the morning was so discouraging that the Cornell manager did not feel
justified in even guaranteeing the Rochester team's expenses.

--Each of the under classes has a wholesome dread of coming in hostile
contact with the other and the result is that the cane rush will be omitted, from
the curriculum this year. There is talk of substituting a series of base ball
and foot-ball games.
