Front Page TWO RESCUED FROM LAKE DURING STORM - Alderman Thompson and Sister, Jeska, Narrowly Escape Drowning
Alderman Arthur E. Thompson and his 13 year old sister, Jeska, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George T. Thompson, were rescued from the middle of Canandaigua lake during a terrific windstorm Monday night. The couple had clung to their overturned sailboat for more than an hour and were nearly exhausted when a rowboat manned by Louis Dibble and Cecil Quick of Canandaigua reached them. They have practically recovered from the effects of their experience today. The Thompsons left the Canandaigua pier for a trip on the lake about 6:30. They were in a light sailboat which was at the mercy of the wind and waves when a heavy storm blew up about 8 o'clock. The boat was hurled back and forth in the lake, completely beyond the control of its occupants. When it overturned Mr. Thompson was thrown in one direction and his sister in the other. Both managed to reach the boat and after clinging to its sides for about twenty minutes were able to right it. Scarcely had they gotten its keel in the water however, when it again overturned. Shouts for help were drowned in the noise of the wind and waves and served only to use up fastly ebbing strength of the pair in the water. Just before darkness descended the storm began to abate slightly and the Thompsons took advantage of the remaining light to wave their arms in the air in hopes of attracting the attention of cottagers. A small son of Hollis McMaster at Cove Content, east lake shore, was the first to see signs of life on the overturned boat which had been attracting the attention of cottagers for several minutes. At that time the waves were so high that it was impossible to launch a boat from the east shore. When the first signs of abatement in the wind were noticed Mr. Dibble and Mr. Quick put out in a rowboat, each using one oar. Another boat was launched by William Wright of Shortsville and Robert Roodenburg of Rochester, but the Dibble boat reached the couple in the water first. In the interim members of the Thompson family, the Merrill Hose company and other Canandaiguans were scouring both shores of the lake from Canandaigua to Cottage City in an effort to learn what had become of the boat and its occupants, who had nearly recovered before they were found at Cove Content.

FIRE THREATENS IMPERIAL HOTEL - Fire of unknown origin, starting about 11:30 o'clock Monday night in the cellar of the Imperial Hotel on Niagara street, gave the members of the local fire department a stubborn two hour battle, thoroughly frightened guests who occupied all but three of the rooms, and was finally extinguished without having damaged the upper floors excepting by smoke, which swirled in heavy clouds throughout the building. The loss is estimated to be in the neighborhood of $1,000. Michael Flynn, proprietor of the hotel, said that he was about to assign a party of late guests to the three remaining vacant rooms, when he noticed smoke rising from under the door leading to the cellar, and that upon throwing open the door a dense cloud of smoke swirled up into the lobby. Dashing down the cellar stairs, Mr. Flynn found that in a small store room next to the furnace room a quantity of waste paper had in some unaccountable manner caught fire, the flames spreading to a nearby pile of old furniture, chests and boxes. The alarm was immediately turned in, and by the time the apparatus arrived the smoke had driven the guests into a near panic, many of them calling for help from upper windows, while a small group held forth on the balcony over the front veranda. With hand ladders and the giant extension ladder on the truck, the guests were brought safely to the ground, and the fire finally extinguished. Local firemen say that the smoke was the densest they have experienced and that had there been the slightest wind the fire would probably have done considerable damage if not wholly destroying the building.

TWO KILLED WHEN AUTO HITS TROLLEY - James JACKSON, 30 years old of 110 Fort hill avenue, colored, and Elmer FREELAND, 30 years old of 102 Bull's Lane, colored, are dead, and Joseph ROWE, 27 years old of Granger street, colored, sustained a broken nose, minor injuries as a result of an accident which occurred on Main street north near West Gibson street, about 6:15 o'clock Sunday night. With JACKSON at the wheel, and the machine in which the three men were riding, traveling at the rate of 50 miles an hour, going south on Main street, an attempt was made to avoid striking another automobile when the racing vehicle crashed almost head on with a north bound Rochester and Eastern car. JACKSON and FREELAND, the former at the wheel, and the latter accompanying him on the front seat, were thrown with terrific force against the front of the trolley, both men being horribly mutilated and sustaining fractures of the skull which caused their deaths, less than a half hour later. ROWE, whom it is believed was asleep in the rear seat, was thrown from the car, and miraculously escaped the fate of his two companions. H. R. BARRINGER, Albert FABER, Frederick MC CLELLAN and Harry M. SMITH, four doctors in front of whose offices the accident occurred, hurried to the scene and rushed JACKSON and FREELAND to the hospital, where they died a few minutes later. ROWE walked to the offices of Dr. MC CLELLAN, where the wounds about his face and hands were dressed, after which he proceeded to his home. Although it is said that the trolley was fully and properly lighted, apparently the occupants of the fatal machine failed to see its approach. The automobile was reduced to wreckage and the front of the trolley considerably damaged. Charles WATKINS of Canandaigua, motorman, and Fred OTTLEY, conductor, received minor cuts from flying glass.
