TURNOUT OF BUFFALO MILLIONAIRES.
A large number of millionaires of Buffalo and some equally rich people of the Empire State, had an outing last month. The aggregate amount of capital represented on the occasion was some $15,000,000. It was called the fifteenth annual river trip of the Alte Gard German Millionaires’ Combination. The thing was a great success from beginning to end, and it is said that the amount of saner kraut and beer that each individual put away would do credit to members of larger and more experienced associations. The strange part of the affair is that Ike Markevstein, of New York, and the chief of the fire department of Buffalo, one Maconneldacks, were amongst the wealthy coterie. Perhaps, the presence of these distinguished visitors may account for the fact that upon the return of the members of the party to Buffalo they did not look only like thirty cents, and considerable difficulty was experienced in raising this amount to pay the street car fares of the indiscreet gold bricks.
