He Had an Accomplice, Who Him Disap peared. Nkw York, March 30.— District Attor ney Fitzgerald, of Richmond county, said last uight that the mystery of the murder of Carl E. Ruttinger, whose body was found in the water off Tottenville, traten Island, on Wednesday of last week, was in a fair way of being solved, and that one of the murderers would probably be captured. He came to this conclusion yesterday from evidence that was given to the Staten Isi and authorities by a young Englishman who was a fellow passenger of Wright and Ruttinger on the steamship City of Chi cago, which arrived on Jan. 10. This young Englishman »uid he had lived near Wright in England and knew him well. Wright, he said, was a man of bod moral character. On the voyage over the young Englishman saw a good ileal of Wright, aud Ruttinger. Ruttinger had a big roll of money, but Wright apparently had none. Ruttinger paid for everything. Wright and the young Englishman often t alked t ogether. "Once Wright told the young English man t hat Rut tinger had 115,000 in cash in his possession uud that he was a laee man ufacturer. The tariff bill hod ruined bis business and he had sold out for the $15, 000 and was corning to America to start a new laee factory. Ruttinger acted very roughly toward Wright, and ordered him around. Once on the voyage over he had heard himcall Wriglitavilename. Wright had said to him that If he had any one to help him he would throw Ruttinger over board. It is believed that Wright plotted with one of his bad companions to kill Ituttin ger and rob him of the $15,000 he had re alized from the sale of his business. The confederate came to America on the steam er ahead of Ruttinger. Wright then in duced Ruttinger to go wit h him to Totten ville, possibly to look at a site on which u laee factory might tie built. After getting him down there he drugged him or the confederate sandbagged him and robbed him, and then Wright returned to New York and killed himself. When tile young Englishman was asked by the authorit ies how it was that such an apparently weak man us Wright could not only arrange such a plot but assist in carrying It. out, he replied that Wright was not such a weak young man as he looked. He had on one occasion whipped a London "bobby," who was a good deal bigger than himself and who was armed wit h a club besides. When he was arrest ed, though, his nerve gave out. He paced up and down iu Ids cell and cried and screamed like a ernzy man. It was argued from this Mint he might have the courage to plot the murder of Ruttiuger, but, that after the deed was done it was very natural that he should come back to New York, anil in a moment of fear or remorse commit suicide. The young Englishmen gave a picture of their confederate to the authorities and told them that the man was still iu Mus couutry, that lie was a robber by occupa tion, aud that he had a police record in London as a thoroughly I cut man. Dist rict Attorney Fitzgerald balievea the young Englishman's statement. a THE NEWS IN BRIEF. Condensed Telegram» Gathered at Kaa dom from Varlou» Flare».
