Death of a Well-Known Vessel Man.

Buffalo, October 8. - Capt. Thomas Maytham, one of the best-known vessel owners of the lakes, died suddenly from unexplained bowel trouble last night. He was 53 years old. Few men had more friends among navigators and vessel men. He washearty, upright and outspoken. Nobody mourns his loss more sencerely than the host of men who have learned to handle craft of his ownership. He is best known as manager of the harbor tug line bearing his name, but he was in many branches of business and leaves a large fortune.
