LONG LIST OF CRIMES
Horrible Record of Ruffino, Black Hand Leader. IN CUSTODY IN CHICAGO Bomb Manufacturer, Murderer and White Slave Agent. HE-IS A NATIVE OF ITALV Police Have Long Been Searching for Him?Woman Victim Furnishes Information. CHICAGO. July 28.?The police believe they have at last In custody one of the lonriorc rtf Hie "Black Hand Society." who Is also accused of being a manufacturer of bombs, a muw^erer and a white slave agent. The suspect Is Joseph Rufflno, announcement of whose capture at Milwaukee was made yesterday. Ruffino's wife. Sardlno, also was arrested. Rufflno, who Is a native of Italy, is said to be wanted by the pqllce of many cities in this country and-Italy. Information leading to the arrest was furnished to the police of Milwaukee by Chicago detectlvea.who had been, searching for Rufflno and his wife since July 15. At that time Francisco Rufflno. a brother of Joseph, took Enrlchetta Vaccarlna, twenty-one years old, to Rochester, N. Y., and threatened to murder her, it is alleged, because she-knew too much about "their "black hand" dealings. Was a "White Slave." The woman ^was a "white slave" brought to this country months ago, after the Rufflno brothers, according to the police, had killed a wealthy Italian at San Giuseppe Jato, a Sicilian city, because he refused to submit to blackmail. The woman was brought to Chicago and placed In a resort, where she remained until July 10, when she went to Rochester with Francisco Rufflno. Soon afterward Joseph Rufflno, It is charged, wrote to his brother to "do away" with the woman, "because she knew too much." Francisco threatened to cut her throat, but before he could accomplish the crime she fled to a police station. He left Rochester and has not been captured. The Vaccarina woman revealed many "Black Hand" plots and the murder alleged to have been committed by the brothers in Italy. When the detectives searched two trunks which Joseph Rufflno left they found two revolvers, several stilettos, three pairs of brass knuckles, pieces of gas pipe, about twenty bottles filled with various ingredients used In making bombs and dies and cfomna hv tVio "Rlftnk TTan r1" )n signing threatening letters. Record in Rochester. ROCHESTER, N. Y., July 18.?The police here s^y regarding the arrest at Milwaukee of Joseph Ruffleo that while he brought Euriahita Yaccarina to this city, he. did not cut her throat, but only made threats that he would do so. The woman appealed to the police for protection and when search was made for Rufflno he had disappeared. Dufflno once kept a questioned resort here. He was arreeted for this and was put under $1,500 bail. The Vaccarina woman is still here under a holding charge o& vagrancy preferred by the police. The police say that she has made many statements revealing alleged Black Hand plots. The police here have communicated with the Chicago authorities and allege that they have evidence partially Incriminating Rufflno with the facts as told by the Chicago police. TWO WOMEN DROWNED. Steering1 Gear of Motor Boat Breaks. OSWEGO. N. Y., July 28.?Two young women. Miss Theresa Parker of Oswego and Miss Millie Sutton of Newark, N. J., were drowned in the Oswego river here last night as the result of a peculiar boat accident. The young women who lost their lives were of a party of seven, three men and four women, who went out on the river in & motor boat owned by P. G. Campbell. The party were enjoying a splendid ride When the boat was caught In a swift current. To avoid it the steersman made a quick turn and the^strain presumably broke the steering gear, for the boat suddenly veered violently about, at the same time hurling Miss Parker and Miss Sutton into the water. They were drowned before the others could assist them. The boat fortunately was not capsized and the dthers were rescued from the disabled craft by persons who witnessed the accident. Loses Girl, Also $600. SHAMOKIN, Pa., July 28?Mary VIBock left home suddenly yesterday and jblned her lover, John Rocheski.

I IN FIELD OF AGRICULTURE i Want to Get Most Ont of Soil for the Least Money. ' BEAUTIFUL "TWIN CHURCHES" ' Spires Rise to Height of Two Hundred and Thirty Feet?Old Land Grants. 9 -, v...v; - "The Insurgent."' Statue Erected in Bull Ring Square, Wexford. BY WILLIAM E. CURTIS. Special Correspondence of The Star and the Chicago Record-Herald. WEXFORD, Ireland. July 19, 1908. A deputation of farmers which appeared before Mr. Russell, secretary of agriculture of Dublin, the other day, Asserted that Wexford Is "the most agricultural county in Ireland." For that reason they asked that a school of agriculture be established here to teach their sons and grandsons how to get the most out of the soil with the least expenditure of money and labor. I understand such an institution is to be given them. Agricultural colleges are new to Ireland. Technical training of every sort has been neglected and the people have been farming "by ear rather than by note." Sir Horace Flunkett, who has done more for the good of the farmers of Ireland and the working people generally than any other man of his generation, or for several generations, inaugurated a movement that has led to the establishment of schools of agriculture and technology throughout the island, so that a young man may learn the technical side of farming and any of the trades from experts without serving a long apprenticeship and imitating the tricks and the habits of the careless men he works with. This will do a great deal for Ireland. The next generation of farmers and mechanics will be much better qualified to serve themselves and their country than those who have been puttering along in the past with wasteful methods and indifferent to tbe most important maxims of the economies. Wexford Prosperous. There is every appearance of prosperity about Wexford. The people are well dressed, the cattle are sleek, the horses are the best we have seen, and we are quite prepared to believe the assertion that this is the "Garden of Ireland." There is a good deal of commerce at Wexford, going out as well as coming in from a fine harbor, formed by an estuary of the sea at the entrance to the Irish channel. There is a long breakwater to ! protect the ships against storms, and i quays, 3,000 feet long, with double lines of railway track and modern machinery ! for loading and unloading vessels. There t are steamship lines to Liverpool. Bristol i and other markets in that hated and desnised territory called Eneland. Several sailing ships ure now tied up at the dock, which bring over coal and take back barley to make the British beer, for this is the headquarters of the barley trade in Ireland, Political Disturbance. Wexford has been the syene of much political disturbance. The people are Intense in their hatred of England and every baby in the cradle is a violent home ruler. Perhaps this unanimous sentiment is In a measure due to the Influence of the Redmond family, which belongs here. On the site of an ancient bull ring is a bronze figure of a young man In a belligerent attitude with a long pike. He is called "The Insurgent," and the figures "1798" are on the pedestal?nothing more. "It's one of the patriots of '98," said the jaunting car driver. "They are putting up statues like that everywhere in Ireland now to keep the events of the paBt in the memory of the people." There is a great deal of significance in that statue, and even more in the photographs and post cards of it. which are for sale In the windows of every stationer, newsstand and cigar shop. Under the picture is printed in plain letters the words "Who Fears to Speak of '98?" The Twin Churches. What are called "the twin churches" are two fine Roman Catholic houses of worship?exact duplicates?within two or three blocks of each other, with beautiful spires 2J0 feet high. They cost $250,000 each and were paid for by the congregations of tlUs city. The people of Ireland do not seem to count the money they spend upon their religion and its homes. It may be said also that all of the Roman Catholic churches are crowded Sundays early and late. Not only the churches, but the jails, the poorhouses and the insane asylums in Ireland are always kept in repair. While , those particular buildings are always noA i _U1? nn,l *U^1. J lictraijic iui uicii oim: nuu iiicil ^uuu luiidition. others look quite as prosperous. If, perchance, the poorhouse Is crowded, the Jail is usually empty. There is only one prisoner In the enormous jail of Wexford today and fifty-nine vacant cells. All the rest of the prisoners are out In the country engaged on public works. Abbey of the Holy Sepulchre. At St. Sellskar Church, belonging to the Church of Ireland, we met an old lady who told us of an ancient custom of distributing twenty-five loaves of brfead every Friday afternoon to the poor widows of the parish. She said there are now only four applicants for this bounty in Wexford. There Is another legacy from a man named Tate, who died a hundred years ago or more, under which 7 shillings a week is distributed by the archdeacon to poor families, and there are few applicants for that charity. St. Sellskar"s Church is built on the foundation of the Abbey of the Holy Sepulchre, which was established here a thousand years ago. Within it was signed the first treaty ever made between the English and Irish races. This was signed in 1169 by Dermot MacMurrough, King of Leinster, and Richard de Clare, Earl of Pembroke, better known by C* nama of ' % > ? ?

The Princess Eva, daughter of Dermo< MacMorrough, King of Leinster, who mar ried Strongbow on the field of battle, l! i burled in a stone coffin at Banpow in th< suburbs of Wexford, down by the coast It was formerly a populous and prosperoui city, but no traces can now be seen of i except the ruins of the church that con tains her tomb. The rest of the town has been buried under the encroachments o: the sea, and sand now lies ten and twenty feet deep upon the tops of the houses Until a few years ago Bannow returnei two members of parliament, although foi many generations there was nothing foi them to represent except the ruins or this church and a solitary chimney. However .for the loss of this franchise the Britlsl government paid ?lo,000 to the late Ear of Ely, whose seat is in the neighborhood His ancestor, the Rev. Adam Loftus, was lord high chancellor of Ireland during th< reign of Queen Elizabeth. He was one oi the founders of Trinity College and th< first provost. The romantic story of this extinct city is related in a novel entitles! f"Eva, or the Buried City of Bannow.' and contains a good deal of interesting history mixed with the fiction. Cromwell's Work at Wexford. Cromwell visited Wexford in 1640 j?klo nnlvprsol eviction of Ireland UUIIUB ? " and when the town surrendered to hire he butchered 300 of its defenseless innocent citizens as an example of what might happen if the survivors did not treat him respectfully. A great Celtic cross now stands upon the spot made sacred by their blood. His headquarters were in a house on South Main street that is still standing, owned and occupied by Mr. James Sinnott. An abbey where his convenanters stabled their horses, still remains in ruins. The relics of Cromwell's ferocity may be seen in every direction, graceful arches covered with ivy and other vines, square stubborn looking towers with irregular crests that rise above the foliage: all fragments of ancient monasteries and castles that he destroyed There are so many that some of their names have been forgotten. Wexford is one of the oldest towns in Ireland. It was originally a Gaelic village called by Ptolemy, the Egyptian geographer on his map "Menapla," and upon its site Danish rovers built the present town in the ninth century. And it was their most important shipping center in Ireland. Dermot MacMorrough.

He was a good soldier, but the Christian influences under which he t was educated did not remove all the - savage traits from his system and he 3 was guilty of many wicked, brutal, a treacherous acts of tyranny and vio" lence against his neighbors and his subjects. He kidnaped the wife of s l ernan u nourKe, tving 01 ijeurim, ana t the latter persuaded the other kings in - southern Ireland to Join with him in 5 punishing the insult. MacMorrough f was driven from pillar to post and ; finally fled to the Court of Henry II . in London, where he offered to bei tray Ireland to the English monarch, r The latter declined to give Dermot r any personal assistance, but permitted 3 his vassals to do what they liked, and . a number of British and Welsh barons i of broken fortunes, under the leader1 ship of Richard de Clare, Earl of Pembroke, organized an invasion. Strongbow's Invasion. f In May, 1169, they landed at Wexford 5 with force of 2,000 well armed Nor| mans. Englishmen, Welshmen and renegade Irishmen. Strongbow was r given the leadership of the expedition with a promise of the hand of Dermot's daughter in marriage and the succession of the throne of Leinster, Before . the invaders landed Dermot returned f , quietly to his castle at Ferns, and dur- I inc the winter of 1168-9 nrptonilBH tn . do penance for his sins in the Augustinian monastery he had founded there, in order to throw his Irish enemies off a ; their guard. r The King of Connaught. Roderick b O'Connor, who was the acknowl- 1 edged suzerain of all Ivc.aml at s I that time, collected a large army c and marched against the Invaders, s | and he might easily have crushed c them, but he was a weak and t ' credulous man, without the ability or E ; vigor of Brian Boru, and Dermot fool- t ed him completely, promising to expel ? ' the foreigners provided he was restor- e 1 ed to his kingdom. As soon as Roderick o I had jnarched away, however, and Der- o mot felt himself strong enough to t break his promises, he led allies with a 1 fire and sword into the city of Dublin o .and the English have occupied It .ever ; since. Strongbows wedding with Eva took ! place August 25. 1170, upon the battle- c field near Waterford among the corpses g of "the stain. There's a striking picture of the scene in the.

Some said that he anded by Hook and some said he landed jy Crook, and that was the origin of the saying that is heard to this day: "either jy hook or crook." Henry II had about 10,000 fighting men ind they were so well organized and irmed that resistance was impossible. Alnost all the Irish kings and chieftains ;ame prompetly to make submission and he Irish bishops, presided over by Lawrence O'Toole, met in synod and acknowl;dged him their sovereign. Their action vas based updh a bull Issued by Pope Ad-ian IV, authorizing Henry II to take possesion of Ireland. Adrian IV was an English monk -named Brakespear, and, t is said, he was influenced by an unfair ind exaggerated account of the influence >f the church in England and by misrepresentations of the state of religion n Ireland. Some historians have quesioned the genuineness o.f this edict; >thers have declared that it was a myth, jut there seems to be no reason to doubt nat Adrian iv aid autnorize Henry it o invade Ireland, believing that a strong :entrallzed government there would be 'or the advancement of religion and for he good of the people.

Troubles with the holy see resulting rom the assassination of Thomas a 3eckett, called the king back to England >efore he had completed his plans of setlement, and he left Ireland in April, 117:1, ifter remaining there less than six nonths. He had intended to erect a tring of Norman castles at frequent inervals throughout the island and garrion them with English troops in order to iverawe the native kings and chieftains, o that his own earls might watch and heck each other. But he left that work to lis subordinates and rewarded them with grants of enormous areas without regard o the rights of the native owners. Leinter was given to Strongbow, with the xception of Dublin and two or three ither towns on the coast; the province if Meath was given to Hugh de Lacy; he province of Ulster to John de Courcy, .nd other tracts to the ancestors of many >f the noble families of Ireland today. End of Strongbow. Ireland fell into a state of anarchy and onfusion after Henry II left, under Itrongbow. He was tyrannical and uneasonable. The native princes rebelled nd almost overcame him. They drove im to Waterford and besieged him there, rhere he was rescued by Raymond le iros. who demanded the hand of his sissr Bassilla as his reward.

He built Christ Church Cathedral and other churches and endowed several large religious establishments, although formerly he had shown very little veneration for the relics of St. Patrick and other Irish saints. In 1176 he died, of a malignant ulcer in his foot, which hi? enemies ascribe to a miracle of the Irish saJnts, whose shrines he had desecrated. His sister Bassilia, who was a woman of strong character, concealed the fact of his death until she could communicate with her husband, Raymond le Qros, who was besieging an Irish king at Limerick, and prepare him to to take advantage of the situation. As a letter might be captured and read she sent him a courier with the message: "The great jaw tooth, which used to trouble me so much, has fallen out; wherefore return with all speed." Raymond understood the meaning and returned to Dublin, took charge of the government and burled Strongbow with great pomp in Christ Church Cathedral, which he had founded. The famous Laurence O'Toole, Archbishop of Ireland, conducted the ceremonies. But King* Henry had enough of the Strongbow family. and when he heard of the great earl's death he appointed William de Burgo. founder of the Burke family, as viceroy. Raymond le Gros. with Bassilia, retired to their castle in Wexford, where he resided quietly until his death in 1182. And that is the story of the way in which the English obtained possession of Ireland. Rebukes Wife Beater. BALTIMORE.
