New Haven. March 20.- Three
brutal crimes within 10 days, crimes
among- the most brutal in Connecti
cut history, set criminologists to
thinking, today. The murder at
Branford. of Christopher "Wood, and
son, Valdemar. the suicide of Mrs.
Wood, who slew the others, March 9,
was followed by the disappearance of
Martha, the 4 years old daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. Feltdrappie, of Clinton,
March 13. Later the insane mother
confessed to wringing the child's neck
and throwing her into the flames of
their home. Yesterday, in Ansonia.
Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Fitzgibbons
were found with their skulls crushed
in and their house on fire.
Within the memory of the old resi
dents ,.of Connecticut, three such
crimes have not occurred so near to
gether. The Feltdrappie case at Clinton is
not yet settled and Mrs. Feltdrappie
is held awaiting the action of Coroner
Davia,, of Middletown. A triple fu
neral closed the Wood tragedy. The
Ansonia double murder coming yes
terday . the investigation was on in
full blast, today.

Ansonia, March 20. The coroner
started an investigation, today, in the
deaths of Thomas Fitzgibbons, Sr.,
and his wife, Nora, who were found
in their home on Division street, yes
terday, with their skulls crushed in
with an axe and the house on fire.
Thomas Fitzgibbons, Jr!, son of the
murdered couple and aged 32, is held
by the police in connection with the
According to the son's story to the
police his father killed his mother
and he then killed his father. The
authorities believe that the son killed
both parents., The fire appears; to
have started from the overturning of
a lamp . and stove, whether to con
ceal the crime as some suggest or as
the result of a struggle- as young Fitz
gibbons claims has not'yet been set
tled. The son was caught hacking his
father with an axe, by a neighbor,
Edward Fogarty who was attracted
to the house by the flames. Fogarty
held him for the police.
Young .Fitzgibbons was . released
from the state asylum for the Insane
a year ago- and only returned to .his
parents' home from Schenectady N.
Y., last Thursday. According to his
story the couple had a violent quar
rel which ended in the husband
throwing a lamp at his wife and at
tacking her with an axe. The son
claims he went to help his mother
and sustained cuts on the head In
the struggle for the axe. Overcoming
his father. -young Fitzgibbons .said he
struck him on the head with the axe.
The police openly state they do not
credit - the son's story and claim he
killed the couple in a fit of insanity.

NDUSTRWtS GET t
A COUPLE MORE
OF GOOD TEAMS
Perhaps it is. not well known, but
the scouts of both the Industrial and
Factory league "have been doing a
little gum-shoe work during" the past
several weeks in the quest of , teams
to make up their 1911 circuit. Any
factory where there was a club or a
semblance of a team, was" approach
ed by representatives of -both leagues,
who in glowing ' terms extolled the
many good features of their league,
showing wherein the . one had it on
The Whiting Manufacturing Co.,
represented by a snappy independent
team last season, has been one . big
bone of contention between the two
leagues. The Industrials won out,
for at a meeting of. the league held
Saturday evening the Whitings ' were
admitted to membership, as were also
the Singers,J ' who had also been ap
proached by the Factory league rep
resentatives. These two are about the
strongest clubs, representing the larg
est factories, which were outside either
fold, and are a big feather in the
Industrials' head gear.
The addition of the two above men
tioned clubs, makes a seven club cir
cuit, and will set the scouts ascurry
ing for another club to make the cir
cuit evenly balanced. It is said that
the league has . two other applications
on hand, ready to be acted upon, but"
this is believed, to be tmly a feeler to
lead the Factory leaguers on a bit.
Besides admitting the two clubs, the
league elected Tom McCann super
visor of umpires for the fourth con
secutive season and Francis Dunni
gan, supervisor of .scorers. Arrange
ments are now being made for the
automobile ride to be given the play
ers" the night before the opening of
the league season. '
The Factory leaguers are not hang
ing by idly, and will meet this even
ing to act upon the application of the
Harvey Hubbell Co. team. The lat
ter company has had a club in the
field for several seasons past, but are
now tired of playing independent' ball.
The team will be managed by Harry
Arnoldsky, who so successfully man
aged the Western football team dur
ing the past season. The new team
has every assurance that it will be
fully supported by the factory offi
cials. " '

Business Men Suspicious of
Drummer Who Carries
"Has the Japanese government i
spy at work in this city to ascertain
the sentiment here toward Japan?" is
the question being asked today by a
number of - local business men who
were interviewed t this morning by a
dapper Japanese drummer who insist
ed on sending his goods to local houses
on trial whether ' they wanted to buy
or not. He showed no samples.
"I am selling typewriter ribbons and
carbon paper at one half what you
can buy them for in this country,"
said the salesman, "the goods are a
Japanese product with the exception
that they are inked in New York by
One man listened with patience to
the Jap who talked glibly of the vir
tues of his Japanese products. "We
send them to you and if you don't
like them you throw them under the
table and we will send an expressman
for them," replied the Jap. "
"I have all the ribbons I will need
until Jan. 1, 1912." said the merchant.
"Very well. How many ribbons will
you need then?" said the Jap as he
commenced to write in his note book.
"Don't you put my name down for
anything,". : said the merchant. "There
is a factory here in town that makes
good ribbons. They spend their money
- "Reciprocity is a good thing," said
the jap, "but you would not pay twice
the price you should for Reciprocity's
sake?" The business" man said he
would and the Jap lost his temper and
stamped his way out of the office
muttering in Japanese.
The same agent presented himself to
Town Clerk William Thomas and in
sisted upon getting an order for his
ribbons from the city. He was indig
nant when the town clerk would not
let him send a shipment of his rib
bons. He had his pencil out taking
the order and it was only after he
was told that any shipment he sent
would be returned that he left the
