New York, Sept. 9 One of the most spectacular drug raids New York has ever known ended today with the mysterious suicide of the chief raider. Frank J. Fitzpatrick, head nar cotic investigator, led thirteen agents in a .gallant charge up the ganir plank o the Greek steamship Kinr Alexander, and engaged in a hand to hand fight :n which volleys of shots were fired, five seamen wounded, $100,000 worth of drugs and whisky seized, and nearly S25 men aboard the vessel rounded up for examina tion. Fires Two Shota in Heart The raid over Fitzpatrick stepped into a wash room on the Brooklyn pier, where the King Alexander was tied up. Two shots rang out. Fitz patrick was found dead, both bullets in his heart. The suicide completely mystified the raiding party. Their only theory was tha their chief, who they said bad been worrying over his health, suddenly had become de mented in the excitement of the fight. Tonight they were awaiting the arriva Ifrom Washington of Col onel Ferrer, executive assistant to the chief of the narcotic division of the Internal Revenue Bureau, order ed to New York to make a thorough investigation. The raid had been elaborately planned by Fitzpatrick. Through stool pigeons he hail arranged for purchase of $20,000 worth of whis key and drugs, which were to be de livered through a port hole. Prelim inary payment of $1,300 to a ship's officer and $300 to a watchman were alleged to have been made. Crew Begins Firing Bright and early Fitzpatrick and his agents showed up approaching the vessel in launches, hut the sus picions of certain members of the crew were aroused and they opened lire as the motorboat drew near. Landing under fire the raiders rushed the gang plank. The fire con tinued as the party jumped on to the deck. Then the fight started. Final'y reinforcements arrived. It took some time to subdue those who resisted but at last fifteen men were arrested on suspicion of being ring leaders of the smuggling gang. It was while he was returning to his headquarters that Fitzpatrick startled his men by committing sui cide. They had no warning of his act for he seemed in high spirits af ter the raid and congratulated his men on their courage under fire.
