SOUTHSIDE HIGH STUDENT KILLED BY ACCIDENTAL DISCHARGE OF SHOTGUN.
Accidental discharge of a long unused shotgun Sunday afternoon brought death to 17-year-old Robert G. Collier of 305 West Ave., popular Southside High School Senior.
The youth was wounded at 12:25 p.m. He died at 2:51 at St. Joseph’s Hospital.
The accident occurred as Robert and his 8-year-old cousin, John Osborne, also of 305 West Ave., were scraping the varnish from the gun’s stock in preparation for refinishing in the cellar of the Collier home.
The victim was to have been graduated in January from the Southside High School.
From accounts given by young Osborne and the victim’s 13-year-old sister, Joyce, Detective Peter C. Curley reconstructed the accident as follows:
Having an opportunity to sell the gun, Robert decided to refinish the stock and went to the cellar with his cousin. Joyce, who was in the cellar when the descended, saw Robert pick up the gun which was lying on a chair.
“Be careful! Is that loaded?” she asked.
“No”, Robert replied, “It isn’t loaded. I haven’t used it in a long, long time.”
Reassured, Joyce went upstairs in a few minutes and Robert, kneeling with the muzzle against his abdomen and John holding the stock, began to remove the finish.
“Then,” John told Detective Curley, “I heard a big noise and Robert made a grab for me and fell over on the floor.”
The victim’s father, Grant E. Collier, an interior decorator, ran downstairs. He found his son lying wounded and notified the police. Capt. James F. Hennessy, Lieut. Francis J. Bastilla and Patrolmen John M. Hurley, Richard J. Connelly, Jr. and John J. Murray and Detective Curley took the youth to the hospital without regaining full consciousness.
Young Osborne, whose mother, Mrs. Geraldine M. Osborne, is a sister of the victim’s mother, told Detective Curley he was not certain how the gun was discharged.

JOHN CAUSER DEAD AT 74; RETIRED HOTEL OWNER RAN LANGWELL FOR 43 YEARS.
John Harland Causer of 405 Maple Ave., dean of Elmira’s hotel men and one of the city’s most popular residents, died at 4:45 a.m. today at St. Joseph’s Hospital. He was 74.
Mr. Causer became ill and entered the hospital last Tuesday. He was to have undergone an operation, but his condition did not improve enough to permit it.
Until he was stricken Tuesday, Mr. Causer took almost daily walks to the Hotel Langwell, which he had operated for 43 years before his retirement. He also called n friends, and was a regular attendant at meetings of the Cold Brook Club of which he only recently had been made an honorary member. He attended the weekly meeting of the Club April 17th , and paid his last visit to the Langwell last Monday, the day before he was taken ill.
Mr. Causer was injured seriously when struck by an automobile last September, but these injuries are not believed to have contributed to his death.
Mr. Causer’s son, Jack, was notified of his father’s illness and arrived here from his home in Coral Gables, Fla., Wednesday night.
John Causer was born in Elmira Jan. 9, 1872, the son of Joseph and Margaret Freeborn Causer. His father was superintendent of the former Elmira Rolling Mills.
John attended the old School 4 for one year but when he was seven, his family left Elmira for Springfield, Pa., where his father operated a hotel and a farm. They remained there until 1888, when his father returned to Elmira and bought the old Elmira Hotel on State St., across from the Peck hardware store. After returning to Elmira, John attended the Warner Business College, then helped his father run the hotel.
In 1895 Joseph Causer began construction of the present Hotel Langwell. It was ready for occupancy in 1896, and Mr. Causer gave it to his son John and James to operate. The hotel was named after John Causer’s maternal grandmother.
In 1900 the Causers built an annex to the original structure on the west, and in 1908 build another annex on the State St. side.
In 1921 the family acquired the former YMCA building on the northwest corner of State and Market and operated it as a Langwell annex until 1929, when it was sold. It is now a New York State Electric & Gas Corp. office building.
John and his brother, the late James A. Causer, also were partners in the Ithaca Hotel, Ithaca, which they bought in 1903. They continued the partnership until 1919, when it was dissolved. John Causer took the Langwell and James Causer the Ithaca Hotel.
In 1939 Mr. Causer sold the Hotel Langwell to a newly-formed corporation and retired.
Mr. Causer was a life member of the New York State Hotel Association, and was also an active clubman in Elmira. He was a life member of the Elmira Elks Lodge, as well as the Cold Brook Club and Flat Tires until his death and a former member of the City Club, Country Club and Lake Keuka Club. He also belong to several clubs in Coral Gables, Fla., where he lived for several years.
Traveling and golfing were among his hobbies. In 1925, with Dr. and Mrs. Woodford J. Copeland and their son, Irving, he made a world cruise touching 22 countries.
Mr. Causer was a member of the First Presbyterian Church.

A TRIBUTE TO DR. DICKINSON
To The Editor of the Gazette:
It is with the deepest sorrow that we learn of the death of Dr. Dickinson. He lived among us only a short time, but his goodness of heart and encouraging words will never be forgotten by his patients and friends here. He was a faithful physician and gave his life for others. Great will be his reward in heaven. If to every cloud there is a silver lining, then everything must have its sunny side. As we bend in agony over the coffin of our loved ones with heart-breaking grief, we turn and find peace in God. We can remember they died happy and are at rest. It is there we can see the sunny side of our misfortune.

His father owned the Horseheads brickyard now the Consolidated Brick Co., and when “O.D.” left school he went to work for his father.
After a few years with the brick company, he left that business and entered another line, going to work at the Horseheads Creamery. The business prospered and Mr. Eisenhart rose to become a partner with J. Sayre Holbert and Jonas VanDuzer in a company that at one time controlled 27 creameries.
In 1917, when Mr. Eisenhart was president of the company, the Horseheads Creamery was sold to the John Wilder Milk co. Others of the creamery group were disposed of over the years but Mr. Eisenhart retained an interest in the Arkport Creamery until 1941, when it was sold.
After sale of the Horseheads Creamery Mr. Eisenhart became active in banking and upon the death of John Murphy, president of the Horseheads Savings & Loan Association, succeeded to that position. He served as president five years before retiring but continued until his death as a director. He also was active in the organization of the First National Bank of Horseheads and served on the board of directors until the bank was absorbed by the Elmira Bank & Trust Co.
Mr. Eisenhart announced his retirement as mayor of Horseheads in 1919, after serving 10 one-year terms. He said at that time he felt he had done his duty and the village should have a change of administration.
For the past 10 years six different men held the job, but only one or two terms each.
Then in March, 1939, Horseheads residents pulled a surprise while Mr. and Mrs. Eisenhart were spending the winter in St. Petersburg, Fla. On election day, in March they voted Eisenhart president without his knowledge.
Under the management of Ollie Eisenhart—and of Roy D. Martin who served as acting mayor during Eisenhart’s winters in Florida—taxes were cut and cut until they were only $10 a thousand less than when Eisenhart took office.
At the same time the village paid off the bonded indebtedness on its water system, improved the water works, replace 15 miles of cinder roads with macadam and improved the lighting on many of its streets.
Mr. Eisenhart was a member of the First Presbyterian Church of Horseheads, having served several terms as trustee, and a life member of the Elmira Lodge of Elks.
Mr. and Mrs. Eisenhart, who was the former Miss Louisa Bennett of Horseheads, celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary July 8, 1944.
Mrs. Eisenhart and a son, Gilbert, who was with his parents in Florida, left Thursday by airplane for Elmira, but the plane was grounded at Philadelphia by poor weather conditions. They left Philadelphia by train, expecting to reach Elmira this afternoon.
The body of Mr. Eisenhart is en route to Horseheads by train.
