Tri County Clippings- Troy Gazette Register 1913 - Yesterday's News
|These clippings from ancient
and fragile newspapers stored above the Troy Gazette-Register office are
being typed by Tri-County volunteers for presentation on site. Primarily
we are preserving the neighborhood news columns and the obituary, marriage
and birth information included in them. I intend also to include articles
that show the influences on the lives and attitudes of our local populations
at the time, and I will also illustrate the individual pages with ads from
the era. Nothing is more revealing of lifestyle than the goods and services
The TGR covers the area of all townships surrounding Troy and many neighborhoods have a local column submitted, but not necessarily every week or even every year.
Our thanks goes to the staff of the Troy Gazette-Register for giving us access to this valuable old news so that we can share it with you. There is no better way to understand the culture and customs of our old communities than by sifting through these clippings. Even the names of some of these old communities have ceased to exist in today's world, but we have them captured and preserved here. If you do not have the time to enjoy the luxury of sifting through clippings, these will be included in the Search Engine which you can reach from the "Front Door" of the Tri-County Genealogy & Historysites by Joyce M. Tice.

John COLLINS, Troy boy who is studying pharmacy in Philadelphia, was the hero of a fire in that city Sunday morning in which one perished and fourteen persons barely escaped with their lives. Collins easily could have reached safety with the others, but for his heroic efforts to save a fellow boarder, Miss Lyall, a stenographer, aged 38, who suffocated in her room. When finally he was forced to flee or be burned to death he dropped forty feet from a third story window. Landing on his feet his life was spared though he was badly bruised. The Philadelphia papers of Monday which printed long accounts of the fire, all dwell at length upon Collins’ heroism. All of his clothing was consumed.
John Collins is a son of the late Mr. and Mrs. John Collins of Troy and a brother of Misses Margaret and Josephine Collins of this boro.

D. B. YORK WINS SUIT AGAINST R. R.
An important case was yesterday decided by Arbitrators at Lewisburg, Union County, in which D. B. YORK the well known cattle dealer was awarded $1301. Mr. York in March 1912, shipped from Columbia X Roads to Chalfont, Pa., consigned to himself a car load of cows and calves. There was a delay at Milton after being received by the Philadelphia and Reading road for about twenty-seven hours. One cow and one calf were dead when the car arrived at its destination. Later two cows and seven calves died. The condition of the stock was such, owing to delay and exposure that Mr. York refused to accept it, and brought suit for its value with the result above stated.
Hon. Harold M. McClure and Hon. A. C. Fanning represented Mr. York, and Andrew A. Leiser of the Pennsylvania Railroad and Erwin M. Beale of the Philadelphia & Reading, the defendant company.

FIRE DAMAGES DR. BARKER HOME
About 11 o’clock yesterday morning fire broke out in the back stairway of the Dr. P. N. BARKER home in Canton street and spreading through the upper rooms did much damage to house and contents. Firemen and neighbors were early on the ground and saved considerable of the first floor furnishings in a more or less damaged condition from smoke and water. It was after quite a fight and the whole house had been deluged that the blaze was finally put out. The loss is covered by insurance. Dr. Barker and family will occupy the Joseph Joralemon house until their home is restored.
H. P. DAVIDSON’S HOME DESTROYED BY FIRE
Last Wednesday fire destroyed the $100,000 country home of Henry P. DAVISON, FORMERLY OF Troy, at Peacock Point, Glen Cove, overlooking Long Island Sound. The fire started from a defective chimney. But little was saved of the valuable contents. Mrs. DAVISON, their two sons and tree of their social friends had motored down from New York for the day and were there when the fire broke out. The house was insured and will be rebuilt.
Mr. Davison bought the estate several years ago from Mrs. Charles O. Gates. He remodeled the house, laid out sunken gardens and terraces and made other improvements which were finished last year.

FIRE CONSUMES SIX HOMES AT SNEDEKERS
Fire at Snedekerville last Friday destroyed six dwelling houses owned
by W. H. Snedeker. They were occupied by R, Charles, Adelbert and Millard
PORTER, Frank AVERY, Lloyd WHITE and John STRONG. Two mills owned respectively
by C. W. Mitchell of Troy and by Mr.Snedeker, and other buildings were
saved with difficulty. Fire apparatus was sent from Elmira by the LaFrance
Company and by the Northern Central Railroad, and a number of Troy firemen
responded to the call for outside aid. All were factors in confining the
flames to the row of dwelling houses. Most of the contents was saved except
the one in which the fire started. There was no insurance on the buildings
consumed, and little if any on contents.

MURDER TRIAL IS PROGRESSING RAPIDLY
Rapid progress is being made at Towanda in the trial of Jerry KINNER charged with the murder of his father-in-law, Nathan WOOD at East Athens on Jan. 17th. The work of securing a jury was taken up Tuesday afternoon and 7 out of 26 called were accepted before adjournment. Wednesday morning fourteen had been examined before the remaining five were secured. The only juror from this section is Ralph Young of Springfield.
At 10:45 District Attorney CULVER opened the case for the Commonwealth. During the day Dr. Badger, Chief of Police Mulligan of Athens, Dr. T. Bea Johnson, Constable Fred Burns of Athens, Jesse Leonard and Mrs. Wanda Allen, the housekeeper at the Wood home who was on the stand more than two hours were called as witnesses as were also Alma Kendall and Lena Wood, a daughter of the murdered man, and his son, Clarence Wood. The direct examination of all witnesses was conducted by District Attorney Culver, while Senator Mills conducted the cross examination, assisted by Attorney Schrier.
Kinner appeared in court in a new black suit, black bow tie, white shirt and collar and new black shoes. He carried a soft gray hat in his hand, and there was no hint of nervousness in his manner as he took his seat with his attorneys, Messrs. Mills and Schrier. In a firm voice he entered a plea of not guilty to the indictment.

JURY FINDS JERRY KINNER GUILTY IN SECOND DEGREE
In the Jerry Kinner case which occupied the attention of court at Towanda all of last week, the jury at 5:40 Saturday afternoon returned a verdict of guilty of murder in the second degree.
The jury were out about three hours and a half. An incident of the trial was the devotion of the prisoner’s father, John Kinner, 72 years old, to his son. He is much respected by his neighbors and is said to have sold his little farm in Pleasant Valley to raise funds for the defense. He stood just back of Jerry when the verdict was rendered.
The charge against Kinner was murder in the first degree. To this the jury said "not guilty." There was an interval of time between this announcement and the return of the real verdict in writing during which the faces of the father and son lit up with joy. It lasted but a moment. Then came over the faces of both the shadow of disappointment.

SHOT BROTHER’S WIFE THEN HIMSELF
Crandall Hollow, Canton township, made a sensation Saturday afternoon when Asa L. FLEMING an invalid 62 years old, wounded his sister-in-law, Mrs. Frank FLEMING, and then turned the revolver on himself. Fortunately Mrs. Fleming will recover.
FLEMING had been cared for in his brother’s home a long time. He was able to sit up only occasionally. Saturday afternoon Mrs. Fleming had just entered her brother-in-laws room in response to his call when he pointed the revolver at her and fired. The bullet missed its mark. Failing to get possession of the revolver, she ran from the room, slamming the door behind her.
The next bullet passed through the door and took effect in her hip. Two more shots followed in quick succession. Then all was still. Investigation showed that Fleming had placed the revolver to his left breast and sent two bullets through his own hear.
An inquest was held Sunday by Justice of the Peace, J. B. BUTLER of Canton. Before his health gave way, Fleming was a watchmaker. He leaves a number of brothers.

TROY MAN SHOOTS HIMSELF
With a 32 calibre hammerless revolver which he bought at the Beardsley & Colony hardware store about 8:30 Wednesday evening, Leal G. PALMER shot himself twice at 1:50 o’clock Thursday morning in room 55 of the Updegraff hotel in Williamsport.
He told salesman Percy King that he was going woodchucking, and wanted the revolver for that purpose. He was at the hotel Welsh and the Troy House during the evening, leaving the later about 11:30 for the railroad station. In taking leave of friends he shook hands saying they might not see him again. He never drank to excess and was to all appearance in his usual cheerful frame of mind when he boarded the midnight train.
In Williamsport he went directly from the train to the Updegraff and the clerk noticed nothing unusual in his manner when he registered. He asked the leaving time of a morning train for Philadelphia. Half an hour after he entered room 55 on the third floor, four shots were heard. Two only took effect. One bullet entered behind the right ear and passed close to the temple. The other entered lower and lodged in the left eye. The clerk and the coroner found Palmer sitting on the edge of his bed moaning with pain. The coroner asked why he had shot himself, but got no reply that he could understand. The revolver lay in a pool of blood beside him on the bed. He was taken to the City hospital and about 4 o’clock his friends were notified. His wife, brother-in-law, L. L. Alexander and parents, Mr. and Mrs. Charles Palmer of Sylvania, responded to the call, leaving for Williamsport by automobile about 6 o’clock.
Palmer’s condition when our forms close is critical but not necessarily without hope.
No satisfactory explanation is given for the shooting. He is 22 years old a young man of good habits and more than ordinary intelligence and promise.
For two years he has been employed in the Troy creamery. He was married last fall to Miss Cecil Alexander whom he had known from childhood. They had lately begun housekeeping in the Heywood house across the street from the Gazette-Register office. Since marriage he had had his life insured. He is said to have mailed a letter to his mother before leaving Troy. He had a letter in his hand when officer Costello took a lot of mail from the Troy House to the late train but declined his offer to receive it, saying he did not want it to go out until morning. He told Mr. Costello that he was coming back from Williamsport Thursday afternoon or evening.
NOTE: At 8:40 this morning (Friday) Williamsport hospital says Palmer is resting quietly—critical but may recover.

The forty-third annual Commencement of the High School was held in the Presbyterian church on Friday evening. The interior was prettily decorated with laurel and green foliage. The hall was well filled with relatives and friends of the graduates, when Dales (?) orchestra of Elmira, struck the initial chord of the march, "School Life," and the graduates took their places on the platform. They were:

VETERANS’ DEPARTURE FOR GETTYSBURG WAS IMPRESSIVE
A sight that made many forgotten memories come surging back, bringing tears to some and a great pride to others was the departure of the Civil War veterans for Gettysburg Monday.
The older residents recalled when Troy was a recruiting station during the war and squads of soldiers were leaving almost daily, some of them never to return.
Headed by the Troy Engine & Machine band, the grizzled soldiers marched to the station, some erect and strong but many leaning heavily on their canes. DeWitt LAMPMAN was the sole representative of the famous "Bucktail Regiment" and E. F. LILLEY and James VanBUSKIRK were the last survivors of Capt. B. B. MITCHELL’s Company. At the station many comrades joined the marchers. Two sections went through before the train for the Troy veterans came and as they passed the station the windows were lined with grizzled faces. Hats were waved and greetings called back and forth, much as it must have been in wartime. The section for Gustin Post, G.A.R. came at 1:10 p.m., and cheered by the crowd of friends and relatives, about fifty three veterans left for the great reunion.
Among those who went were:
Maj. J. CL ROBINSON, L. J. BALLARD, E. C. BRINK, P.A. DARROW, G. L. GATES, L. J. BRADFORD, J. N. LAKE, E. F. LILLEY, O.C. HILFIGER, E.T. BUFFUM, John CANEDY, E. C. ELY, D. C. NEWELL, A. A.

ULSTER MAN DIES IN CANOE RACE FOR WEALTH
More details have been received regarding the drowning in the Athabasca river, Canada, of the late Edward McQUEEN of Ulster, a former well known athlete and base ball player.
Edward and Frank McQUEEN had been located in Emonton, Can., for a number of years, and had been successful. They and their wives had planned to come to Ulster this summer, the young men wishing to play on the Ulster base ball nine by way of a vacation diversion.
When ready to start home, Edward learned of some rumored valuable ore deposits near Fort Murray, about 400 miles from Edmonton, which would be the property of the first man who reached there and staked out a claim. McQUEEN organized a party as did several and the race was on.
Rather than carry their canoe many miles through the wilderness, McQUEEN and his two companions decided to risk shooting the rapids in their canoe. It was a fatal hour. Many weeks later their canoe was found with a large hole stove in it. The bodies of the three men were found afterwards by Northwest mounted police who made the search.

BOY LIVES WITH HALF OF BULLET IN HEAD
A family gathering at the home of Milan PUTNAM near Granville Center on the Fourth of July, broke up tragically just before dinner.
Oakley SHEDDEN, 13 year old son of John Shedden of Granville, and his cousin, Lawrence Shedden, were playing in the yard when they were called to dinner. They entered the washroom together and while Oakley was bending over the wash basin, Lawrence picked up a 22 calibre double action revolver from a shelf and with boyish curiosity began fingering it. The weapon had been used for shooting crows and was loaded. Lawrence did not know this and when relatives rushed in after the report of a second later, they found Oakley clasping an ugly wound just over the right eye. Dr. P. N. barker of Troy, was rushed to the scene and the boy was taken immediately to the Sayre hospital, arriving at 4 o’clock, just three hours after the shooting.
An examination by X Ray showed that the bullet had splintered the frontal bone and split into two parts. One part had plowed in under the skin, while the other had entered the brain four or five inches. Young Shedden was given Tetanus antitoxin to ward off lock jaw and at last reports is doing nicely. Two different versions of the shooting are being circulated, but we are assured that the above report is nearly correct.

JEWELER SHOOTS AT FATHER-IN-LAW
Homer J. SHARPE, aged twenty-five years, a former Troy jeweler, is under arrest at Binghamton on a charge of assault in the second degree.
Sharpe has been employed in a jewelry store at Binghamton, but did not live with his wife, who had returned to the home of her father, Mr. Rech, who resides on Tremont avenue, in that city.
It is alleged by the Binghamton police that Sharpe had a grievance against his father-in-law, alleging that his influence was the cause of the young wife leaving her husband and returning to her home.
Last night, it is alleged, Sharpe was intoxicated and went to the Roch home where he fired shots from a 42 calibre revolver through a window at his father-in-law. Fortunately none of the shots struck Mr. Rech and Sharpe returned to the business part of the city and stood out on a public square.
He was seen by a policeman to be acting in a peculiar manner and the policeman started an investigation and relived Sharpe of two loaded revolvers, one being a 42 calibre revolver which was about a foot long, and the other an ugly looking weapon of the "bull dog" variety. He wore a diamond valued at $600 which he had borrowed from his employer.
The young man was arraigned in police court at Binghamton this morning on a charge of assault in the second degree. He was remanded for examination to a later date.
Charles F. Sharpe, father of the defendant, is a resident of Elmira and is employed as an automobile varnisher and finisher.
About ten years ago another son was shot and killed at Salamanca by a former Erie Railroad detective named Perry. The Sharpe boy and a companion were riding on an Erie freight train when they sighted the detective, and jumping from the train they started to run. The detective fired a shot which killed the Sharpe boy. The detective was placed on trial for manslaughter but was not convicted.
