POLICE ROUND UP ALLEGED BURGLARS
Two Men Accused of Robbing Geneva Home Caught With Goods
Geneva - July 5 - The residence of William DELAMARTER was entered by burglars at an early hour this morning. Mr. DELAMARTER was awakened at 2 o'clock by the sound of some one down stairs, but did not think that the house was being
burglarized. A short time after she went down stairs and found the back door open, the window screen cut out and the window raised. She examined the room and found things in disorder and a silver watch and $2 gone.
This morning the police were notified and Chief KANE sent Policemen HAWKINS and KINNEY on the case. About 9 o'clock HAWKINS got a line on a man who was trying to dispose of a meerschaum pipe in the McAuliffe saloon on Exchange
street. Policeman KINNEY who was working the case farther down the street discovered a suspicious character in T. F. BRENNEN'S cafe near the Central depot. The fellow was in the act of pouring out a drink when KINNEY entered the place.
The policeman grabbed the bottle from his hand and immediately put the irons on his wrists before the fellow knew what was going on. He attempted to put up a fight but the arrival of HAWKINS soon put that idea from his mind. He did, however, make resistance and it was necessary for the policemen to drag him part way to the station, where he gave his name as Ryan.
When searched the watch which was stolen from the DELAMARTER home was found on him, also a dozen silver spoons, a berry spoon, a clinical thermometer and several other articles. The man was locked up pending further investigation.

This Was A Family Affair-
Joseph TANTALO lives at No. 16 Platt street. With him boards his son in law, Joseph MASTRALLA. Yesterday the Italians indulged in a drinking feast, in which a number of their kind participated . Family jangles and other things served to cause bad blood among the Italians and at length MASTRALLA attacked his father in law with his fists. The men had a lively battle and there was great excitement in the house. MASTRALLA left the house but vowed he would return and do things that would not please TANTALO.
Sergeant KLEIN and Patrolman IRELAND were in State street, when a boy ran up to them and said that an Italian was about to shoot his father. The policemen went to Platt street on a run. When the arrived at the TANTALO house, MASTRALLA and his brother, Nicholas had departed. KLEIN and IRELAND separated and started to find the pair. While the policemen were searching for the two, the latter returned to the house.
Joseph MASTRALLA drew a long bread knife and slashed his father in law across the right cheek, making a wound three inches in length.
Ran Away, But Were Caught - TANTALO emitted a shriek that could be heard a block away. Other Italians in the house and neighborhood thought murder had been done and soon the street in front of the house was filled with a mass of Italians of all grades. The MASTRALLAS escaped by leaping a rear fence. The police summoned a surgeon and the gash in TANTALO's cheek was sown up. Five stitches were necessary to close it. After the doctor had been called the policeman resumed the search for the knife artist.
Patrolman IRELAND went to Mill street. He had barely reached Brown street when he met the two MASTRALLAS, in company with Dominick TANTALO, a brother to the man who was cut. IRELAND promptly held up the three. He led them to State street and summoned a patrol wagon. They were taken to headquarters. Joseph MASTRALLA was charged with assault in the second degree and the other two with intoxication. No dangerous weapons were found on any of the men.

DOG CATCHER ON A VACATION
Geneva - Feb. 19 - For the next month the untagged dogs of the city will have free access to the streets and back yards of the city, for the reason that Dog Catcher HART left to-day for a month's vacation. Officer HART stated before leaving that the dog owners have been either keeping their pets at home or else most of the dogs of the city have been tagged, for those without the license tag have been extremely scarce during the past two weeks and as a result he decided to take a vacation. Mr. HART said that this does not mean that he has suspended operations for the season, but he intends to return when least expected. So far this season 860 tags have been sold, while last year, 480 were sold.

NO TRACE OBTAINED OF LOUIS STAUFF SR. - Nester Estate Awards Reward of $100 - Geneva, Feb 25 - The search for Louis Stauff Sr. continued today, but without result. The searchers went over practically the same ground as before in their effort to discover the whereabouts of the missing man. Nothing has been learned about his movements since he was last seen in front of his place of business Monday night, and his disappearance remains as much a mystery as it was at first. Some persons think that Mr. STAUFF has carried out an often repeated wish to visit his old home in Wilkes-Barre, PA, but inquires at the railroad station give no information as to his purchasing a ticket or having been seen around the stations. It is also thought that he might have taken a train to New York, there he could have passage to Germany, where his parents reside. His father was formerly a brewer in Wilkes-Barre, but sold out some years ago and returned to Germany. In an effort to get some trace of the man, the executors of the S.K. NESTER estate, by whom Mr. STAUFF was employed for thirty-three years as foreman and superintendent, this afternoon announced a reward of $100 for any information that would lead to the located of Mr. STAUFF or the recovery of his body. Mr. STAUFF is described as being a man about 49 years of age; about 5 feet 8 and 1/2 inches tall; weight about 165 pounds, round, smooth face, with a cast in the right eye; wearing gold rimmed spectacles; bald head; walks with a shuffling gait; stooped shoulders. It is said that when he left home he wore a dark brown suit, black derby hat, grey cardigan jacket, white shirt and collar and necktie. He also has a signet ring, with the initials " L S " and a silver watch and gold chain.

Geneva - Rocco MUNDIZZO, the Italian who is said to have shot and killed his wife and sister in law, Saturday night, is still at large and the police can not find any trace of him.
The Post Standard, Tuesday Morning April 20, 1909 by Dianne Thomas
MUNDIZZO TAKES HIS OWN LIFE
Italian Murderer Commits Suicide in Jail at Geneva
Special to the Post Standard
Geneva, April 19 - Rocco MUNDIZZO, the Italian who shot his wife and her sister and injured three others Saturday night, completed his work by hanging himself in the cell at the Geneva jail at noon today. MUNDIZZO was captured at Canandaigua last night and was brought to Geneva this morning. He was lodged in one of the steel cells at the jail.
Coroner EISELINE of Shortsville came on to Geneva, accompanied by District Attorney SHORT this morning to arrange for the inquest in the cases and also for the arraignment of MUNDIZZO. The officials, accompanied by Chief of Police KANE and Superintendent of the Poor, BRODERICK, who desired some information in regard to the children left orphans by the tragedy, called at the jail. All of the officials went to the cell which the man occupied and talked with him for half an hour.
MUNDIZZO had little to say about the shooting He declared that hew as very drunk Saturday night and that he remembered nothing about what he had done. He claimed he was jealous of his wife because members of the DeFLEET family had been telling stories about her and that BELSETTO, or the baker, was implicated. MUNDIZZO told Chief KANE that DeFLEET had him drink a lot of beer.
He seemed anxious to see his children and he asked for them several times. He appeared worried, but in fairly good spirits when the officials left him at 12 o'clock. He had been searched at Canandaigua and after being brought here, when put in the cell, all he had with him was the clothes he wore. Hs trousers were supported by a belt in place of suspenders.
At 12:30 o'clock, Officer J. McNEARNY went to the jail with dinner for some of the other prisoners. The officer passed MUNDIZZO's cell and saw him hanging by the wall, under the bed. This bed is made of straps of steel, and hangs about half way between the floor and the ceiling of the cell. The bed is about three feet from the floor of the cell. The officer went into the cell and found MUNDIZZO hanging by a strap about his neck. He cut him down and called Dr. H. D. WEYBURN.
MUNDIZZO was dead. He had taken the stout leather strap, which he wore about his waist and formed a noose with it. After putting the noose about his neck he had tied the loose end to the end of the bed and then allowed himself to drop down so that his face was toward the floor and the weight of his body was upon the strap about his neck. It is the opinion of the physician that it only took about three minutes for the man to strangle himself this way.
Coroner EISELINE was again notified, and after viewing the remains he ordered them removed to the undertaking rooms of Devaney & Fletcher, where they were placed on a slab beside the bodies of MUNDIZZO's wife and sister in law, whom he had murdered Saturday night. An inquest in all three cases will be held tomorrow.
Coroner finds that MUNDIZZO Intended to Kill When He Fired at his Victims
Several witnesses of the shooting were called and after their testimony had been taken, Coroner ELSELINE decided that the women came to their deaths from wounds caused by bullets fired by a revolver in the hands of Rocco MUNDIZZO and that MUNDIZZO intended to kill the women when he fired the shots.
Superintendent of the Poor Broderick took to the Auburn Orphanage Asylum today, two of the MUNDIZZO children, aged 2 and 4 years, respectively. The other child, aged 2 months, is being cared for at the Italian colony. The eight children of the DeFLEET family, will be taken care of by their father, who, it is expected, will recover from the bullet wound in his head.

Local Institution to House Victims of Geneva's Triple Tragedy
When Rocco MUNDIZZIO committed suicide at Geneva Monday, after killing his wife and her sister on Saturday night, he left three young children orphans. Yesterday Superintendent of the Poor Broderick of Geneva, brought two of the children, aged 2 and 4 years respectively, to the Auburn Orphan asylum. The other child, a baby 2 months old, is still at the colony where it is being cared for by Italian neighbors.
Mrs. DeFELICA, who was shot by MUNDIZZIO, left a family of eight children. The DeFELICAS were in better circumstances than the MUNDIZZIOS and it is believed that the family be kept together and that the father will look after them.
Coroner EISELINE of Geneva conducted the inquest into the causes of the deaths of Mrs. MUNDIZZIO and Mrs. DeFELICA at the City Hall there yesterday. Owing to the suicide of MUNDIZZIO the inquest was largely informal, in which only sufficient fact to satisfy the law were sought. Only eye witnesses were sworn and the motive for the shooting was not gone into at all. After hearing the evidence Coroner EISELINE declared that it showed that the women came to their deaths by wounds caused by bullets fired from a gun in the hands of Rocco MUNDIZZIO and that he fired them with the intention of killing the women. An inquest will be held later in the week in the case of MUDIZZIO,

POLICEMAN ON SICK LEAVE KILLS WIFE; WOUNDS HER SISTER [surname listed as NILAND in 1910 census]
Fatality at Home of Timothy F. NYHAN, Who Once Attached Police Surgeon
Laboring under the illusion that a burglar had entered his house, Timothy NYHAN, 45 years old, a member of the police department, attacked his wife in her bedroom on the second floor of the house at No. 4 Lee place at 11 o'clock last night, and after a terrific struggle succeeded in killing her. The unfortunate woman fought desperately but was overpowered and her head beaten in with the butt end of a revolver.
After killing his wife, NYHAN put on his hat and coat and calmly went to the home of his sister in law, Mrs. Michael SEGRUE, 30 years old of No. 5 Day place. Telling her that her sister was seriously ill, he accompanied her back to the house. Once at the top of the stairway leading to the death chamber, NYHAN attacked Mrs. SEGRUE. He shot her through the face and tried to strangle her. The woman escaped from the house and gave the alarm. She is in the St. Mary's Hospital. NYHAN shortly after was taken into custody by policemen from the Bronson avenue station. He is believed to have been insane.
Develops Queer Traits - NYHAN was a giant when appointed a patrolman on the police force on December 15, 1905. He was assigned to the Lyell avenue station and remained there until May 1914, when he was transferred to the traffic squad. He was detailed to duty at Main and Fitzhugh streets.
He was generally looked upon as a good officer but in the summer developed peculiar traits and did queer things about the assembly room at headquarters that canned comment among his brother officers. Later he was reported to be ill and went home on a leave of absence. He was attended by his family physician and Dr. John A. STAPLETON, the department physician, called at the house to see him one day in the fall. NYHAN complained at the time that he was not being treated right, and followed the physician to the door. As Dr. STAPLETON was walking out of the yard, NYHAN fired two shots at him. The physician is a pretty good sized man and it was considered as remarkable that neither bullet struck him. One embedded itself in a tree and the other went wild.
Condition Worse of Late - Since last time NYHAN had kept to the house, rarely showing himself about the premises. His faithful wife, who was Miss Mary F. DWYER, looked after the premises, did all the errands and collected his pay until that source of income was shut off. Persons in the neighborhood of the NYHAN home, suspected that the man was insane and feared that something one day would happen.
Of late, neighbors say NYHAN had made a great deal of trouble for his wife. He talked constantly and sometimes yelled. To strangers the sounds would have indicated the couple quarreling, and for that reason little attention was given to the noises when NYHAN attacked his wife last night. Persons living on either side of the NYHAN house say the voices in the upper part of the house were unusually loud last night and it was evident that the two were fighting. The tramping and running of the Policeman and his wife about the house was plainly heard. Despite that condition no complaint was made to the police.
Desperate Struggle Indicated -
From conditions in the room it is evident that Mrs. NYHAN had retired for the night. She was garbed only in her night gown. NYHAN was fully clothed, and in his crazed moments he imagined a burglar had entered the house. It is believed the men sought for his revolver, which had not been taken from his possession. His wife had probably hidden the gun somewhere at the house, as four beds in as many rooms, were found turned upside down when police officials entered the house later in the night.
It is thought that Mr. NYHAN finally secured the gun, and made a desperate effort to escape from her husband by leaping out of one of the bedroom windows. The window pane was broken and the broken glass had cut jagged wounds in her hands and arms. The woman fought desperately but her husband, reinforced by a fury and strength seems to endow insane persons at such times, eventually beat her down and into insensibility. Once on the floor, he reigned blow after blow with the butt of a heavy revolver on her head. The top and back of her skull were literally crushed in.
Attacks Sister In Law - After the killing had been accomplished, NYHAN donned his coat and hat and went to the home of Mrs. SEGRUE. Entering the house without knocking he quietly informed Mrs. SEGRUE that her sister was very ill and wanted her to come over at once. Mrs. SEGRUE accompanied NYHAN to the house. They entered by the back door and as soon as they had reached the top landing of the stairwell, Mrs. SEGRUE saw the body of her sister on the floor. With a shriek she turned about and saw the glaring eyes and great hands of her brother in law were raised against her.
What transpired in the next few seconds has not been reined and will not be until Mrs. SEGRUE is able to talk. When the woman started to turn back NYHAN barred the way. She cried for help when the powerful man seized her. In shaking from his grasp, her forehead was cut. NYHAN then brought the revolver into play. He had broken the handle from the gun in pounding his wife to death, but the barrel and trigger intact, he fired two shots at Mrs. SEGRUE. One entered one side of her cheek and it is said is lodged in the bone of the face. The other bullet grazed the top of her head, making a scalp wound.
Says Burglar Killed Her - Mrs. SEGRUE was able to tear herself from NYHAN's grasp. In doing so she fell over and rolled down the entire length of the stairway. She rolled out onto the stoop and fell over into the backyard. NYHAN too fell down the stairway, but was so stunned for the moment that Mrs. SEGRUE was able to make her escape. She ran through the backyard and climbing the rear fence hurried out into the adjoining street. Then she screamed and fell in a faint.
By this time the entire neighborhood had aroused and it realized that at last the expected tragedy had occurred. While a number of men had watched the house, word was telephoned to police headquarters and the Bronson avenue station. Patrolman McGEE, Joseph CULHANE and William CHRISTIE Jr. hurried to Lee place, and found NYHAN had left the house. About a block distant in Columbus avenue, they found him, sauntering along in an unconcerned manner.
When he saw the three policemen hurrying in his direction NYHAN had started to run. The men called out to stop.
"Hold on Tim", called out one of the coppers, "wait a minute".
"I'm with ye", he replied as he stopped and waived for the officers to come up to him. "Ye know a burglar just killed my wife. I had a tough battle with him, but he got away."
Rooms in Confusion - The officers had no trouble in leading NYHAN to the Brannan avenue station and soon after he was transferred to police headquarters. He constantly spike of "burglars" and seemed intent of finding what became of them.
So soon as a report of the murder was given to the police, the heads of the department were notified. The ambulance of St. Mary's Hospital was called and Mrs. SEGRUE was hurried to that institution. Chief QUIGLEY, Deputy Chief ZIMMERMAN, Detective Captain WHALEY and Coroner Frederick R. SMITH, went to the NYHAN home in Lee place. The eight there was a sickening one. The unfortunate woman lay on the floor in a pool of blood. Great splashes of blood were seen upon the walls, on the bed clothing, on the curtains about the window and about the broken glass and the window sills besides. On the floor lay the broken butt of the gun.
The rooms were in terrible confusion. The contents of four beds had been thrown over the floor and the beds overturned. Chairs had been overturned, probably by the wife while trying to evade the blows of her husband.
Man Apparently Insane - Coroner SMITH caused the body to be removed to the morgue and a guard was placed over the premises. The Coroner, Chief QUIGLEY and Captain WHALEY then went to the hospital where they were able to obtain a little information from Mrs. SEGRUE. Coroner SMITH said Mrs. SEGRUE probably would recover, but that she had suffered severely from the gunshot wound, her other injuries and the terrible shock.
It was long past midnight when the police officials, Coroner SMITH and William F. LOVE, assistant district attorney, began an examination of NYHAN in Captain WHALEY's office. He probably will be locked up on a charge of murder, and later in the day examined as to his sanity. There is apparently no question as to his mental condition.
About midnight, Patrolman BAKER found the gun barrel - the missing part of NYHAN's gun, between two fence pickets in front of a Columbia avenue house.
It is said that the friends of Mrs. NYHAN took steps last summer to have NYHAN examined and committed to an institution. Mrs. NAHAN is said to have frowned on the proposition, saying that she could get strong with her husband and that she was not in fear of him.

He then turned on his wife's sister, Mrs. Michael F. SUGRUE, of 5 Day pl., shot her and clubbed her brutally. Mrs. SUGRUE is in St. Mary's hospital. It is not know whether she will live.
For more than a year, NYHAN has been known to be a dangerous lunatic, ever since he stood on the porch of his home one day last February and shot at the retreating form of Police Surgeon John A. STAPLETON, who had been at the house to call upon the man. NYHAN'S madness culminated in the murder last night. He ran amuck with revolver and club at 11 o'clock.
Despite the terrific beating which she had received at the hands of the crazed man, Mrs. SUGRUE tore herself from his clutches and escaped from the house. She staggered to the stairway, the affair having taken place in an upper bedroom, got out of the house, made her way over two fences and through deep snow to home of Mrs. Anna GUINAN of 2 Lee place, where she told her story and from where she was sent to the hospital.

NYHAN HAD TOLD HIS WIFE'S SISTER THAT HE HAD KILLED HER
Fact Brought Out in Mrs. SEGRUE'S Statement
MRS. SEGRUE RECOVERING
But Will Be Unable To Leave Hospital For Some Time - Describes How Policemen Attacked Her - No New Development Since Monday
The fact that Timothy F. NYHAN on the night his wife was murdered, told his wife's sister, Mrs. Michael F. SEGRUE that he had killed her sister was brought out in a statement made on Monday at St. Marys' Hospital by Mrs. SEGRUE to Detective-Captain WHALEY and Assistant District Attorney William F. LOVE.
No new developments came yesterday in the case. Practically all the neighbors have been questions by the Captain of Detectives WHALEY and Assistant District Attorney William F. LOVE, and it is probable that the case will rest until NYHAN is arraigned for his hearing in police court on January 18. The matter of an attorney to represent Mr. NYHAN is still unsettled. John J. McINERNEY, who has been mentioned, is to give his decision sometime today.
On Monday afternoon, Captain WHALEY and Mr. LOVE questioned Mrs. Michael F. SEGRUE in her room at St. Mary's Hospital, where she is still suffering from the effects of the wounds inflicted on her by policemen. She is still very weak from the terrible ordeal she passed through, but was able to give a very clear story of the happenings of last Thursday night.
Says He Killed Wife - "NYHAN came to our house," said Mrs. SEGRUE, "and said that he wanted me to come over to his house, as my sister, Mary, was sick. I asked my husband to care for the baby while I was gone. I got ready as quickly as possible and went along with NYHAN. He walked ahead of me all the way.
We went into the house by the rear door and he went up to the head of the stairs and stopped when he reached there. I followed, and when I was at the head of the stairs he suddenly turned on me and said, "I have killed your sister; now I'm going to finish you."
"I was startled for an instant, but tried to wretch my wrists free from NYHAM'S clasp." As I was struggling to free myself I received a staggered blow on the head. I was determined to get away so I rolled to the front door and out into the street."
Wife Left Him Once - It was learned that NYHAN had been on unfriendly terms with the SEGRUE'S, for some time past. NYHAN had never visited them while Mrs. SEGRUE had advised her sister to leave NYHAN. It is said that at one times Mrs. NYHAN did actually leave husband, stayed five or six days with the SEGRUE'S, but this was some time ago.
The funeral of Mrs. NYHAN was held yesterday morning from the home of her sister, No. 5 Day Place, at 8:45 AM and from the Immaculate Conception Church at 9 o'clock. Requiem Mass was sung by Rev. A.M. O'NEILL . Nephews of the murdered woman were the bearers. Interment was made in the family lot in Seneca Falls.

NYHAN'S ACTIONS ON FATAL NIGHT TOLD AT INQUEST
Neighbors Heard Sounds and Saw Him Leave House
POLICE TELL OF HIS ARREST
And of Finding Mrs. NYHAN Alive but Near Death - Bartender in Saloon Says NYHAN Left Money with Him and Asked for a Drink
Testimony given before Coroner Frederick R. SMITH yesterday indicted, that neighbors knew of previous trouble in the home of Timothy F. NYHAN of No. 4 Lee place, the policeman who is believed to have shot and pounded his wife, Mary F. NYHAN, to death on the night of January 3d last. William F. LOVE, assistant district attorney, assisted in the examination of the witness at the inquest, Charles E. CALLAHAN appeared in the interests of NYHAN, who is now awaiting the action of the February Grand Jury.
Brother In Law Testifies - Michael SUGRUE of No. 5 Day place, brother in law to Mrs. NYHAN and husband of Mary SUGRUE, who was attacked by NYHAN after his murderous assault on his wife, was the first witness. He said he had not been in the NYHAN house since June 1916. It was about 10:30 o'clock on the night of January 3d, when he heard a knock at the front door of his home, he said, and going to the door he inquired who was there.
"Tim NYHAN", was the reply. "What do you want?" SUGRUE asked.
"Come over right away," NYHAN had replied. "Mary is pretty sick. "
SUGRUE said he told NYHAN some one would go to the house right off and NYHAN started away. He said he and his wife discussed the matter and his wife decided to go. She donned her coat and leaving their baby in his charge, she left the house.
About ten minutes later SUGRUE testified that he heard the cries of a woman. He opened the front door and ran out into the night. He realized there was a commotion in the NYHAN dwelling and he hurried over there. He went to the home of a neighbor, where he found his wife. She had been attacked and badly hurt. SUGRUE then told of his wife being removed to St. Mary's Hospital and said she had only been brought home on Wednesday afternoon. She will be confined to her bed several weeks more.
Neighbor Hear Noises - Miss Mary STROGEN, of No. 2 Lee place, whose home adjoins the NYHAN premises, testified that she and her mother were home at the time of the murder. About 10 o'clock she was in her room and had occasion to look out the window. She said she heard a woman shriek and cry out as if in distress, and plainly heard the sounds of blows. Then she heard a revolver shot.
Miss STROGEN admitted that she was extremely nervous, because they had feared NYHAN ever since he had shot at Dr. John STAPLETON about a year ago. She said she ran to the front door and called to a neighbor. She asked the latter to summon a policeman.
Returning to her room, Miss STROGEN said that she saw the window in the NYHAN house had been pushed outward and lay in the snow below. The curtain and window were stained with blood. There were no lights in the house, and it remained in darkness until the arrival of policemen. She said she saw NYHAN brought back to the house by policemen. She heard his voice, but could not understand what he had said.
Saw NYHAN Leave House - Charles P. STROGEN of No. 45 Columbia Ave., brother of Miss STROGEN, told of having been in his shop in the rear of No. 2 Lee Place until 9:30 o'clock that night. As he was leaving the shop he heard sounds in the NYHAN house that resembled the breaking of dishes. He looked in the direction of the NYHAN house, but saw nothing of an unusual nature. He went on home.
An hour later, STROGEN said, he was called by a neighbor. Mrs. Elizabeth PORTER of No. 212 Lee Place, who said trouble had taken place at the NYHAN house. He notified the police of the Bronson avenue station. He watched out of a window at the rear of his house and saw two policemen approaching across lots. He saw NYHAN leave his house alone. STROGEN said he left his own house and hurried to the home of his mother. He turned about and saw NYHAN returning toward his house. He saw NYHAN walk upon the porch. Next he saw the man leave the house and walk toward Columbia avenue. As NYHAN by him, STROGEN said he stepped out upon the porch of his mother's house. NYHAN stopped and faced him for a moment, STROGEN testified. NYHAN carried his night stick in one hand. STROGEN said he heard the man say "She don't love me anymore."
STROGEN admitted that he backed away from the porch and ran to the back door. Looking back he saw three policemen in the street. They were some distance from NYHAN. One shouted to NYHAN, STROGEN then said he walked back to the street and saw the three officers take NYHAN into custody. They led the man back to his house. NYHAN talked so rapidly that he was unable to understand what he said.
Left Money in Saloon - Dr. James P. BRADY, informed the Coroner that Mrs. SUGRUE would not be able to attend a session for the inquest for a month. Arrangements will be made to take her testimony at her home.
Austin J. MAHONEY of No. 200 Seward street, is employed in his father's saloon at No. 57 Bartlett street. He was on duty at 10:40 o'clock on the night of the murder. About that hour, NYHAN came to the rear door and knocked. MAHONEY went to the door and met him.
" They are murdering my wife, murdering my brother in law and stealing my property." MAHONEY testified NYHAN said as he opened the door. "Take this money and send it to my mother in the old country."
MAHONEY said NYHAN handed him a roll of bills. NYHAN carried a club in his right hand. MAHONEY said he took the money and before he could engage in conversation with the man, he had turned and started to run away. MAHONEY closed the door and walked to the bar. He counted the money and found there was $340.11 in the roll. NYHAN suddenly entered the saloon, witness testified and walked up to the bar and pleaded for a drink of whiskey. MAHONEY said he refused to give him any liquor.
Another Heard Noises - James. L. BARRY of No. 6 Lee place, testified that he had heard noises in the NYHAN on several occasions on the fatal night, but as he had heard them before, he did not give the matter much attention. Later he heard a woman scream and the crash of breaking glass. A moment after, he saw Mrs. SUGRUE leap from the porch of the NYHAN house and ran between the two dwellings. He saw her make her way to the house of a neighbor.
Lieutenant John E. LANE of the Bronson avenue station, told of being notified of the trouble at the NYHAN home. He detailed Patrolman McGEE and William H. CHRISTIE Jr. and motor cycle officer Joseph P. CULHANE to go to the house. He went there himself a few minutes afterward and found the officers had NYHAN in custody.
Officers Find Body - Officer CULHANE testified that when he and McGEE and CHRISTIE neared the house, they saw NYHAN approaching. When he saw the officers he turned about and started to run away. He called to NYHAN to stop, and he did. When they came up with him, NEHAN said, "I'm with ye; I don't want to have any trouble with my brother officers."
CULHANE said they took NYHAN'S club away from him and then entered the house. Mrs. NEHAN lay on the floor. She was unconscious and breathing with difficulty. She died in a few minutes, witness said. CULHANE said he and the other officers found three bullets in the room where the woman had been killed.
Patrolman McGEE and CHRISTIE corroborated CULHANE'S testimony. The inquest was adjourned to Thursday next.

JOLT FOR YOUNG LOVERS - Elopers Brought Back and Arraigned in City Court Here
When Miss Anna TANTALO, 17 years old, of No. 3 Orange street, and Anthony BARBERITO, 19 years old of No. 159 Brown street, were arraigned in City Court yesterday on charges of vagrancy, Judge Raymond E. WESTBURY learned that a romance and an elopement figured into the arrest. He adjourned the case until Monday, in the belief that relatives would be able to effect an understanding.
A year ago parents of Miss TANTALO and Pietro TESTA arranged for their marriage, without consulting the young folks. Being of American birth, Miss TANTALO objected to the arrangement.
Encouraged by his parents and the girl's as well, TESTA insisted on pressing his suit. The girl received him at her home, but insisted that the marriage would be deferred until after the war. TESTA finally consented and is now fighting with the colors in France.
After TESTA left for the front, Miss TANTALO met BARBERITO, who won her heart, but her parents objected. The young lovers took a train for Syracuse, where they applied for a marriage license, but were disappointed. Then BARBERITO wrote to a friend in Rochester, who informed Miss TANTALO's parents. Her father then hurried to Syracuse, brought his daughter and her fiancé back to Rochester, and handed them over to the police.

+ From Private Citizen to Acting Major in a
Young Geneva Athlete is Appointed to Command of Student Corps. (photo of Captain W. P. Loman)
Geneva, Sept. 24 - An illustration of perseverance, coupled with a natural ability in making a commissioned officer out of a private citizen in about a year, is exemplified in the work of William P. LOMAN, son of Mr. and Mrs. Patrick LOMAN, of No. 311 Pulteney street, who has received the commission of captain and has been appointed an active major. Captain LOMAN is a brother of William LOMAN, athletic director of Hobart College, and his father has been janitor at Hobart College for many years.
Captain LOMAN is an athlete and was one of the leading athletes while a student at St. Francis De Sales and the Geneva high schools, and after
leaving school took up wrestling. On numerous occasions at carnivals and exhibitions he would bob up from the audience and take a fall out of the champion wrestler, who would happen to be traveling with that particular company. He was a member of Company B and went to the border. There he earned the distinction of being one of the best soldiers in the command.
When Company B went into the National army Captain LOMAN, who was married, was discharged on that account. After several attempts to get into the service he secured an appointment to the officers' training camp at Fort Niagara. At Fort Niagara he also won the distinction of being the most proficient in the bayonet exercise of any at the camp and was instructor in that art. He was commissioned first lieutenant last December and was assigned to Camp Upton, where he was placed in command of the 127th Company as acting captain. July last he was sent to New York city to attend the training school of the United States army detachment. He was recommended for a captaincy on July 5th.
Captain LOMAN was home on a brief furlough recently. Captain LOMAN was on his way to Delaware, Ohio, where he is an instructor at the Wesleyan University, in charge of 2,000 men. He will have full command and will rank as a major.
