Conn., Feb. lU.-Snma of J ', the mystery surrounding the murder of tho I f young Itnllan woman lime body was found on ' tlie tracks of the New Vor, New Haven and ' Hartford llnllrond between Kail Norwalk nnd I Weslport on Wednesday night has been cleared I: y up. Tho woman's Identity. however, has not I yet been established, nnd until that la done : there U llttlo llkelllmoil of discovering thamur- ) fitter. Itdnr not seem possible, however, that I :' the woman' Identity ran lung remain ft rays- - tery. At A result of thelrciny' work Coroner Doten, I Medical F.xamlner llurk. nnd Chief of Tollce Vollmer were abto to toy that the murdered wo man. In company with two men. left btamford on theeast.bound train nt iii'-'l l'.M. Wednesday. The three left the train nl KastNornnlk at I): 1 1 o'clock. The woninb was not se en nllvo nf ler that. The two men. however, boarded n trolley car at Kaat Norwalk nt lOt.'H o'clock, rode to Month Norwalk, left tho trolley there, and walked to tho South Norwalk rallroitd station. They left rlouth Norwalk for Stamford at 12:5:1. The Uit teen of tho men wa when they left the train nt Stamford. The authorl tie alio obtained accurate description i )f the men and obtained nn Identification, so i far as a comparison of appearances goes, of the 1 woman. Notwithstanding tho fact that the ; woman came from Stamford, no one has been found there, thus far, who can tell who she la. h This leads to tho belief that both the woman i and tho men were strangers In Htamford. ? Tho Coroner's Inquest was resumed at the office nf Medical Kxntnlncr llurk this morning. 4 The first Important tottlmony was Riven by Kobert M. Itusel. n trainman on the New York, New Haven and Hartford road, attaohed v to east-bound train No. TO. whloh left New York at H o'clock on Wednesday night. In F testifying before tho Coroner, he said: " When the train readied Stamford at Pi3l 1'. M. on Wednesday three Italians boarded the train. Klnt n woman cot on and Y took tho first seat In the car directly behind tho smoker. Tho woman Is tho ono whose body wn K found on tho tracks near F.ast Norwalk. I can g not be mistaken ns to Its Identity. ft "Just before tho train pulled out of the station f at Slumlord two Italian men cot aboard and tok seats In the emoker. Ono man was coll ie aldernbly shorter than the other. The short 3 man was about B feet 6 Inches tall, about -'7 jcarsohl, nnd thick-sot, He had n slight mm- I tache, wore a smnll, black soft hat 7 nnd a short, square-cut. double-breasted ' coat, and wns smoking a short clay pine. ki Tlientlur man was thrienr four Inches taller, i , and no older. II" was darker In complexion. t aiid much more slender, lie worn n small round ; cap. and weighed nboul 1"0 pounds. Neither Ir man wore Mi overcoat. i "My attention wan attracted to the woman, y because she would frequently leave lief seat, , step out Imn tho nlslc. and look at the two men In the forward car. After a time I nsked her , where she wanted to go, and pointing to tho 1 smoker she said: 'Seemnn. see man.' f J list after we left I1nway ton, the llrst station t wesiof south Norwalk. the shorter of the two f, men asked me. In broken Knillsh. If the train K stopped at the next station, ami I told him that t the next station whs south Norwalk and I t lint u stopped there. then ho asked what J, was the station beyond that. I told dim Kaat I Norwalk, and he nodded his head nnd said: J, "We pay. How much?' I told him fire rent. k and ho handed out three ticket" for South Nor- walk nnd lllteen cents. Indlcatlnc that ha paid ,' for the woman In the car behind. t "At Host Norwalk the two men got out and $ atooii on the stntlnn platform. The woman re. L' nialned on the platform of the car as If unwill- ;V Ingtuget off. The men beckoned to her. but P still sho stood there. Then I said to her: fr 'Here's where ou ttet off. This Is your i station.' Then she left the train, but re- K matned standing rery near It. The two men had L. uiosed down the platform and were tnlklnz f earnestly tneether. .lust then the train pulled r out of the stntlon and 1 saw no more of them." ft John Leslie, n tnotorman runnlnc a trolley car !-. between East Norwalt and .South Norwalk for ? the Norwalk Tramway Company, testified that, ( nt 1U:!I4 o'clock on Wednesday night, two Ital- ' lans camu from the Kast Norwalk railroad tn- ,i tlon. They had dropped from the embankment nbore the railroad tracks, and. hailing the t car, approached It on the run. He took particular notice of tho men and t his description of them corresponded Q to the description of the men who were with the woman nt the East Norwalk station a ; given by ltussell. Howard Wllniot, conductor I nf the trolley car. corroborated Leslie's testl- ' mnny. and added that the two men left the car ut Monroe street. South Norwalk, r Klton II. llaker. night ticket agent at the f South Norwalk station, testlHed that about ' 10:s5 o'clock on Wednesday night two Italians i rntno Into tho stntlon. llaker hero described f the men, and the description tallied ex actly with mat uf the men described by ! Hussell. Leslie, and Wllniot. 1 'lhe shorter t of tho two men asked what time th T next train left for rireuubronk. the first station , east nf Stamford. llaker told him there would be nmnoro trains stopping at Ureenbrook that ' night, but that the Washington express, wnlcli , left South Norwalk nt l',':5.l. stopped at Stam ford. The man then bought two tickets lor Htamford. and the two, sitting apart, waited '' In the station until the train arrived. Con- r durtor O'Neill of the Washington express told lltker to-day that when his train reached Stamford th two men left the train, one going toward tho city and the other toward Uleu , brook. Thomas Foley, a policeman nf Stamford, tes tified that he saw tho men and the woman at ' th station a short time before train TU pulled ' In from the West at Oiill on Wednesday j evening. The woman, however, came to the ' station alono about H:3&. From her ac tions sh bad evidently Intended to catch an east-bound train that had left Stamford a few minutes before sho arrived there. Later i the two men came up. and after the men had s talked to the woman for some ttmo the three ntered the station together. William V, Nevlns. another Stamford police man. Identified the body this morning as that of a woman he bad frequently seen in Stamford ' In company with a tall, dark man. with a black mustache. After he had Identified the body ho V told aHL'N reporter that be had first seen the man t nnd the woman about ten days or two weeks r ago. He had always Been them In the Italian quarter of tho town, the woman Invariably ! walking behind the man and the two neter ' exchanging a word. Nevlnn's attention was first attracted to the , couple by the appearance of the woman. It ' struck him that she was unusually good look- Ing. He tried on several occasions to get ' the man to speak to him, but was nevor i successful. The llrst ttmo he saw them ( was two weeks ago. In front nt Haxhel- tner's aales-stablea In l'aclflo street, near Canal street. The last time he saw them, previous to last Wednesday night, was a week ago tin Thursday night. John Dady. who runs a night lnncb wagon at Main and I'aclfla streets. Stem ford, saw the couple a week ago on Thursday i night In Canal street, between Chapel and Illshon streets, and a man named Spellman. a , coachman In tho employ nf Dr. Nixon of Stani- ' ford, met the two on the same night about H o'clock nt the Junction of Canal and Illshop streets. These two msn give descriptions of the man to tally with one of the two seen on the nlghtof the murdei.uul they havo Identified the body as that of tho woman. lhe Italian quarter of Stamford extends as far east nslllenhrnnk, which Is really n part of Stamford. When the two men askiil for tickets I lor (llrtibrnok at the bouth Norwalk station they did so, probably, because that would land them nearer their abiding place. With these facts In the possession of the poller, It Is ex pected that a search of the Itnllan quarter of Stamford should bring out a clue to tho mys tery. The Stamford police who patrol the Italian quarter sny that they are certain themonnnd the woman w ere stranger there. They fear thut, i If they were not, the Italians, who are loyal tn one another when n crime has been rummittrd i among them, will not try to help them euhe the mystery. 'Ihu person or persons who committed the murder must have been bespattered with blood. 'Ihu murderer was tracked by the blood stains la tho snow to a plaie In front of Hanford's store In Knst Norwalk. Jnnlah Jones, who lives t nbout U'nu arils from whero the body was , toiind, heard a woman scream not far from 10 o'clock.

Choate, who appeared for Mr. Rockefeller, told the Court that there were scandalou allegation In the complaint w blch he would ask the Court to order stricken out. Justice Truax handed down yesterday a de cision, saying: "lhe affidavit presented on this motion Is full of scandalous. Irrelevant, and Impertinent mat ter, and I direct that It bo suppressed and not placed upon the die of this court: and, as It was made by an officer of this court, with $10 costs to be paid by such ofUier. The affidavit on w blch the notice of motion Is based Is made by the attorney for the plaintiff, and no reason Is assigned why such affidavit la not made by the plalntllf In person. It Is not even alleged tint he Is not In the county, nor does 11 appear from the affidavit that the attorney had personnl knowl edge of the fact stated In the affidavit.

The business or asi oclato leaders In Tammany who wero expected nnd Intended completely to transform the system of representation In thnt organization nre, practically, things of tho past. It was nt tho lieglnnlng of tho year 1HI11 that tho basis nf organization on the Republican a well as on tho Tammany Hall aide was what wns know nns the district leader. Each assem bly district In town (Ibcro wero then thirty) had a Tammany Hall district leader, and each had a Republican district leader, a con vcnlent and responsible system of executive party management which bad tho support of long nnd successful usage. When the Republican Committee of Thirty prescribed nnd had adopted the present Republican consti tution. It endeavored to do away with district leaders or "bossei," at they were sometime called, substituting for them election district organizations of n dozsn or fewer Individual! In each of the 1,000 or more voting district In town. Hy degrees, however, there has been a gradual return to the former system, and every Assembly district In town has Its Republican leader to-day. Tho Tammany men followed In 1804 the lead of the Republicans to the extent ot doing away with former arbitrary nnd somottmes despotic district leaders. Ilmlllng their power bydlvldlng It with an nssoclato leader. They sought to mlnlmlre tho Influence, to diminish tho respon sibilities, nnd to curb thu exercise of the powers ot the district leaders through tho business lenders, who were to bo their associates nud to ro-operatowilh them, these business leaders vvcrelo be men of affairs, who were tn net, so to speak, as public spirited promoters of political activity, enlisting the sup port of many citizens who had previously tnken no psrt In the routine detail of politics. t hat followed wa what perhaps night have been expected: the business leader became either figureheads, ornamental or generally useless, or they became perniciously active. Interfering with district affair and em hnrrnsslng and sometimes disputing with the regular leaders, There Is Shakespearean author ity for the statement, the obert Atlnn of trery phllo-optier. that when two men ride a horse, one man must needs ride behind. Suit proved In the case of tho duplex leader In Tammany, nnd though not formally abol ished, the business leader have fallen Into a position of nn prominence, nntl the veritable leaders, ns Is tho case with the Republicans, are ngnln nt the helm. A perusal of the names nf these district leader chosen last week for mem bershln In the Tammany Executive Committee shows tlio collapse of th system which was In augurated tn do away with district busies. In five of tho dlstrlots the local Tammany Assem blyman wns rbosen a associate leader, tn onn district tho Tammany member of Congress, In threo other districts the associate leader was either a former Assemblyman or a defeated Tnmtnany catididnte for that office, nnd In three other districts the actual leader rhoehla busi ness partner tn share the responsibilities of poli tics with htm. So far from there twlng any di vision of political authority or responsibility, tho political leader In each rao choso his nsso clnt", nnd thus an end has been put to the ex periment begun on the Democratic aide In 1H04. i.vsm.i'jciamto.v.s of nur.F.ns.
