+  The residence of the late Frank H. HAMLIN, in Canandaigua, was slightly damaged Monday, by fire, which broke out in oils and paints left by workmen who are redecorating the house.  The property was recently purchased by J. M. STEVENSON of Rochester. 

+  For the second time in a few days the New York Central station in Canandaigua caught fire, Saturday.  Passengers in the waiting room noticed smoke arising from the boards of the floor and notified railroad employees who promptly entered the cellar, where they found a small fire.  The origin of the fire was not known, but it is said some partly burned matches were found in the basement, which led the railroad men to believe that fire may have been on incendiary origin.

Many Hurt in Auto Accidents - Over Weekend - Sunday Afternoon Rains made Roads Slippery -  Eleven people were hurt in automobile accidents in this vicinity over the weekend.  A slow falling rain Sunday afternoon made the roads slippery and this doubtless contributed greatly to the increase of accidents over the usual number for a like period. 

Mrs. Charles FREED, Fort Hill avenue, received cuts and bruises about the head and face and shock; her daughter, Miss Lillian, received lesser cuts and bruises and Mrs. FREED'S brother, Benjamin MOORE, was bruised when the car Mr. MOORE was driving with them as passengers, overturned Sunday night on Centerfield Hill.  Mr. MOORE reported he had to jam on his brakes to avoid striking a horse drawn vehicle on which there was no light and as a consequence, on the slippery road, his car overturned.

 

Mr. and Mrs. Melvin HATHAWAY of West Bloomfield and two children, were shaken up and bruised when the care in which they were riding, driven by Fred HATHAWAY, was in collision with a truck owned by Salami SALAMIE of Buffalo on the hill near Centerfield.  

Fred HATHAWAY works the KNAPP farm near that place.  It was first reported that HATHAWAY was to blame and that he had been arrested.  Knapp & Henry, who have been retained by HATHAWAY to bring suit for damages against SALAMIE, state that SALAMIE'S truck had been backed part way down the hill and left in the road in such a way that HATHAWAY coming over the hill, could not avoid striking it. 

Several colored persons were injured and received treatment after the car in which they were riding was in collision with another car, on the Palmyra road, Saturday night.

JUDSON H. PRATT MURDERED IN N. Y. 
 Was the Husband of a Canandaigua Girl
 
Judson H. Pratt, 28 years of age, of Brooklyn, a son-in-law of Mr. and Mrs. Charles H. Brockelbank, Howell Street, this city, was shot and instantly killed Saturday morning in East Fifty-Second street, New York city, about 150 feet from a construction job, where he was to pay off some employees of the J. H. Rhoades company, for whom he was paymaster.   The body was found about eleven o'clock in the Bronx in his car. The investigation that followed showed that he had been shot in the head, and the $4,700 pay roll was missing. Patrolman Daniel J. Graham, Jr., has been arrested on the charge of committing the crime.
The story as given out by the police was in effect that Graham, who for some time had been appointed to accompany Mr. Pratt on his trips, had sent in word Monday that he was ill, and again Saturday morning he had phoned in that he could not accompany Pratt. The police allege they have witnesses who saw Graham meet Pratt near the construction, and the conclusion is that after shooting him, he pushed the body aside and got in the car and drove away and that after leaving the car with the body in it in the Bronx, he went down town and purchased a new car and drove to Coney Island where he indulged in a night of debauchery, spending money lavishly. When arrested in front of his home the next morning he was in an intoxicated condition. Graham
denied he had committed the crime and said he had been to Albany where he had secured a large legacy left by an aunt, but his parents deny that he had an aunt in Albany.

Immediately upon receiving word of the death of her son-in-law, Mrs. Brockelbank left by fast train for New York. The funeral services were held at the home of Mr. Pratt's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Carol Pratt, in Brooklyn, and the body was brought to Canandaigua, this morning, and after services in Woodlawn chapel the remains were interred in the cemetery. 

Mr. Pratt was a frequent visitor in Canandaigua and vicinity several years ago, coming here to visit relatives of his mother, whose

maiden name was Hewitt, in Rushville. He was well acquainted with the young people of the summer colonies on the east lake shore. Five years ago he was married to Miss Margaret Brockelbank, and they went to Brooklyn to reside. Besides his parents and his wife he is survived by one sister.

Mrs. William S. McKechnie 
In the death of Mrs. Elida Cameron Mckechnie, which occurred suddenly at an early hour on Monday morning, at her home on Main Street North, there passed from this city one of those true gentlewomen of the old school, for which Canandaigua has long been noted. The immediate cause of death was heart trouble. 
She was born in Palmyra on January 9, 1855, and was a daughter of the late Andrew and Eunice Cameron McKechnie. She was a student at the then famous institution of learning, the Ontario Female Seminary, and afterward married a cousin, William S. McKechnie, and came to reside in Canandaigua in the house on Main Street North, which for fifty years has been her home. 
For the last fifteen years she has been an invalid, bearing the consequent suffering and deprivation with a patience, serenity and
fortitude that won the admiration of all who knew her. 
An exceptionally lovely and loving character, her life exerted a beneficent influence on all with whom she came in contact. Though of late years her increasing infirmities prevented her attendance at its services, her devotion and allegiance to St. John's Church never wavered, and her interest in all its activities was unfailing. Her generous gifts to the philanthropic organizations of the city were many and her kindness in individual cases of need will long be remembered by the recipients. 
She leaves one brother, Stuart C. McKechnie, who has lived with her for the past twenty-five years. 
The funeral will be held at the home this afternoon, the Rev. H. L. Gaylord officiating. The burial will be in Woodlawn Cemetery.  Bearers will be George T. Thompson, Browning Crowell, Charles M. Finley, Edward Sick, Marion I. Case, and William Curtice.
