William Moore, Aged 50, Carried Down the Shetucket
- and Then Swam Out Into the Harbor Where He
Was Rescued Frank Petrofski Rowed Out and
Caught Him .as He Was About to Sink.
Bridge jumping has appealed to but
few in the past several years, although
some years ago as a sport it got a
hold on a few of the local daredevils,
and furnished plenty of excitement.
There was a repetition of it Monday
afternoon about 4.15 o'clock when Wil
liam Moore of No. 278 West Thames
street, a papermaker, with a different
object in view, jumped headfirst off
the bridge into the Shetucket river,
keeping afloat until nearly to the
freight house and from that point to
the center of the harbor he swam un
til rescued by Frank. Petrofsky, who
rowed out to him and took him into
the boat Just aa he was giving up.
Many saw him in his helpless position,
but could do nothing, and had not Mr.
Petrofsky gone to his aid, which he
did at a big risk, he would have gone
to. the bottom. .
Moore had been at the almshouse,
where on Saturday he caused quite a
little trouble while under the Influence
of liquor, and he was taken to the
police station. He remained there un
til Monday morning, when he was pre
sented before Deputy Judge Barnes
in the city court. On his plea that
he could get work in Montville if giv
en a chance, he was placedon proba
tion until the first of February and al
lowed to go. .
He did not go to Montville and dur
ing the day had been drinking more.
During the afternoon he was at the se
lectmen's office. He was told to come
back later, as those in the office at
the time were busy, and he went
away. He must have gone almost di
rectly to Laurel Hill bridge for the
purpose of ending his life. He was
seen to walk on the bridse from twen
ty to thirty feet and jump headfirst
into the river. .
Charles E. Brady was just driving
on the bridge from Talman street
when he heard someone holler and
he saw Moore's feet as he was dis
appearing downward. It is believed he
landed on his back and did not go very
deep into the water. The indications
are that he was slightly stunned by
the cold plunge and the force with
which he struck the water, so that,
partially submerged, he was carried
by the current until he had nearly
reached the freight house., when he
seemed to recover himsslf and began
to swim. ' From that point he was
carried by the current and by his
swimming out into the harbor, cover

from his family for the council cham
ber's gallery of the city's mayors, has
been shown since Saturday in the win

Paid in Full.
The presentation of Eugene Walter's
powerful play of American life, enti
tled Paid in Full, waa given a capital
presentation by Poll's Players at Po
ll's Monday afternoon und evening.
The four acts wore well staged, the
settings being excellent and adding
much to the success of the production.
As Joe Brooks, Robert LeSueur play
ed the part of the young man who
took the earnings of the company by
which he was employed and spent
them in his own behalf and then
sought to have his wife atone for hfs
wrongdoings. His work was, as usual,
of a high order, and at various points
throughout the play the-audience ac
corded the players much applause. ,
Gertrude Perry, as the wife of Joe
Brooks, played the role in a most ef
fective manner. Particularly fine was
she In the scene at Captain Williams'
quurters, while equally strong was her
work in the closing scene when she
laid before hef husband his faults and
failure. S. F. Cairns as Captain Will
iams was fitted for the role and his
work was excellent throughout, while
Laurence Dunbar as Jimsy was like
wise clever as a friend of the family.
J.'A. Rbb as the servant made a good
impression, while Ernna Hayner- aa
Mrs. Harris, and Sue Fisher as Beth
Harris, -wan much favor.

Frank Petrofsky of West Thames
street was 'told that it was his boy,
and he hustled to the river and cast
ing off a skirt began te row out to the
man in the water. There is loe on
the harbor, so that he was obliged to
row down toward the McCrum-How-ell
foundry in order to get around this
and then' up stream again to reach
the man. i re was none, too soon, as
Moore was Just barely a'ole to make his
hands go and his head was wobbling
when Mr. Petrofsky got hold of him.
Then came a hard and dangerous task,
the hauling into the boat of an almost
helpless yet thoroughly frightened
man. This was accomplished after a
hard struggle in which the boat was
half- filled with water. Mr. Petrofsky
had exerted himself to his limit In
rowing out to the center of the har
bor, believing that it was his boy
who had gotten overboard, which, to
gether with his efforts to get the man
into the boat at the great risk of tap
setting, had him about exhausted. He
was, however, able to row ashore, but
could give little help in getting Moore
from the boat to the shore. Michael
Murphy took Moore from the boat
and carried him on his back to his
saloon in West Thames street, where
his wet clothes were replaced by a
blanket, and he was given a hard rub
bing with dry towels by direction of
Dr. Higgins, who had been called.
Moore was unconscious when taken
from the boat, but under the brisk
rubbing he soon revived.
Tho nmhnlAnre was called and he
was taken to the almshouse by Policed
man Henderson. He was in a hyster
ical state in the ambulance and there
were times when the policeman had
all he could do to restrain him. He
complained of cramps every little
while, but it was thought that he
would have no serious effects from his
experience. There was a large num
ber attracted to the river bank. Al
though he went overboard evidently
intentionally he made a hard fight to
get out of the water, although he was
swimming away from the nearest
docks all the time. He la married
and has a family. For many years he
resided in Greeneville and Is an ex
pert papermaker.
The distance from the rail of the
bridge to the water is between thirty
and forty feet.' He was apparent
uninjured by the Jump. ' . -

the running of two boats instead of
one. I -

upon the support given it toy the mer
chants and manufacturers of Groton
end Stonington.' The -project, is being
advanced by the trolley company and
has received the. support of the Nor
wich and New York propeller line, but
the electric road will have to show
business for the freight steamers three
times as large as tliey are now getting.
At present there is a working- plan
between the G. and 8. trolley express
and the propeller line of freight terniFi.
AH the freight to and from New York
which each company can secure is
bandied on a 50 ,per cent, basis, but
there are drawback to the methods
that have to be employed.
Tills freight is landed at the dock
of the. Propeller line at the foot of
Federal street, and ha to be trucked
to- the. ferry boat and then transferred
across the river. As many as five
double loards are carried each day and
besides being an inconvenience, the
pspense of trucking amounts to a lar-je
In view of this extra expense the G.
and S. trollev line has advanced the
nlnn or building a dock on the Groton
side of the river, the dock to be erect
ed on the Susan tilorsan property,
alongside of Captain Chipnmn's fish
market. The plan meftts with tho
epproval of the Norwich and New
York line, which has expressed Its
willingness to load and unload' freight
thre if the flock ia built.
The freight boat fc carrying from
15 to 25 tons of freight eaoh day for
the trolley express, and if this can ho
increased to 50 or 75 tons a day th
projecit will twwSoufcedly go through.
For some time past the G. and 3.
officials have -been making endeavors
to secure the promises of freight for
this line from the merchants and man
ufacturers, and it is generally under
stood that their efforts have been so
far successful that ft is said the Gro
ton dock is about to be bultt.
In the winter the Propeller 'line runs
but one Iboat: In summer two. Should
the deal go through two boats will be
used all the year around.
