warfare will bo wager against the
blackhand societies by the police oi I
this and it Is hoped other cities as a j
result of tljc murder ol Lieutenant
Joseph Pctrosino the noted detective
in Palermo For years Petroslno had I
been active in his work to bring to
Justice members of his own race who I
carried on blackmailing operations in
this country through threats of murder
made in the name of the blackhand
It is believed that his murder was the
result of a plot thai had its conception
In the United States and the persons
indirectly responsible for his death
are still within the reach of the Amer I
ican police
Deputy Commissioner Woods upon
receipt of notice of Potroslnls death I
issued a statement in which he said
It would He hard to overestimate I
the value of Lieut Pctrosluls work
Besides being a skilful detective he
was an honest reliable man and had
the full respect of everyone Devotion
to duty and utter disregard ot per
sonal consequences have always been
characteristic of him
It is hoped that the assassination
of this faithful servant of New York
City may bring home to the pcopio
somn idea of the seriousness of tne
blackhand situation Although the
number of blackhand crimes have
boon decreased about 50 per cent in
the last few months it IB impossible
to make any radical move against the
outlaws until police departments can
have the use of the secret service fund
provided by the city and until con
gress will pass immigration laws
which will keep criminals out and
jnako ILpossiblOrtoput Dotany that
limy slip In
The Immigration laws today as
far as they effect that entry ol crim
inals to this country go such a short
way that they almost cntlrely fail in
accomplishing the object intended
If we are going to allow Into this
country men who by breeding and in
heiltance arc accustomed to take the
law into their own hands we must I
expect them to keep up their tactics
when they come here
New York March HA special ca
ble dispatch to the Herald from Paler
mo Sicily says
Lieut Joseph Petroslni of the Now
York police department was shot
don and killed early this evening I
near his hotel I
His assassins are unknown He had I
come here on an Important mission
which had for Its object the protection I
of peaceful Italians of America
Joseph Pctrosini was the black
baud expert of the New York police
department and a terror to Italian
criminals It is said that ho had more
convictions for murder to his credit
than and five policemen connected
with the detective bureau In his
work It is believed he incurred the
enmity of all Italian criminals and his
L death In Italy leads to the belief that
ho at last fell a victim to those whom
ii hq had so relentlessly prosecuted He
to
went to Italy more than a year ago
1 to work on a plan suggested by Police
Commissioner BIngham to check the
L tide of undesirable Italians and Sicil
ians to this country and particularly
to New York City A native of Italy
ir and a man of great experience on the
IL local force Petroslnl was the best all
around man to accomplish the mis
sion A priato subscription was
started and 30000 was raised With I
this to defray the expense of the un
l dertaking Pctroaini left for his na
I tive land to establish bureaus through
which It was hoped to keep such com
plete records that the news of the de
el parture from Italy or Sicily of any
crimmal could bo flashed to this coun
ri try almost Immediately no that the
sJi authoriUpB could be on the alert and
1M provenCjIlieir landing or place them
under arrest I
Pctrofllnl was so accustomed to re
ceiving threatening communication
and of hearing of threats against his
lICe that ho paid little attention to
them It is said that ho had been
warned against going to Palermo I
where hlls reported to have boon ae
BasfilnatOd but that he ignored tho
threat and scoffed at the Idea of bcing
killed
Prominent Italians in the city arc
of the opinion that the detective met
I death among his countrymen as si di
rect temilt of his untiring effort to
suppress the Mafia tho Camorra and
the blackhand but they think his
sudden death will only servo to kin
dIe anew the feeling against these
f rlminalH which will bring about oven I
a moro drastic crusade against them
than has heretofore been conducted

local merchant was shot by police offi I
cers here early today while trying to
escape when caught In tho act ol
drilling intojhesafe or the Citizens J
bank He will recover
Davis was shot In the groin I
Davis has always enjoyed a good
reputation and the police today ex
pressed the belief that his mind had
become affected I
In a statement today Davis said his I
motive In attempting the robbery was
a desire to get money to branch out
in business I had a crazy notion I
he said that I coma easily get what
money there was in the bank and was
prompted In the attempt by a run of
hard luck 1
Hard circumstances forced me Into
the job and there Is no use crying I
because I was caught I will have to
take my medicine What I think more
of than anything else is my family
my five children I wish to God the
officers had shot me through the heart
instead of the groin II

Attorney Gen M Carn I
Begins His Final 1
Argument
Nashville March 13Judro Hart
announced to the attorneys today that
ho could not complete his charge m
tho CopperSharpe trial before Mon
day afternoon This delay is due to
the failure of the attorneys on both
sides to submit Instructions There
will be consequently no verdict before
Monday night or Tuesday
Judge Anderson resumed his argu
ment with a promise not to weary tno
jury long
Judge Anderson rapidly sketched
out the main points m the evidence
explained that the state wanted some
of them wiped out uut declared he
wanted them worked out
But there Is one fact in this case
which cannot be controverted ho
said In conclusion And Hiatus that
Senator Carmack drew a revolver first
and fired first It cannot be disputed
that Robin fired only when ho had to I
I feel safe In the result gentlemen
and I leave It to you I
Attorney General McCarn began his
argument at once
I have been assailed and de
nounced said tho speaker but thank
God the sarno tongue which wagged
against mo also assailed Mrs hast
man and I am proud that Washington
assailed me too I havent any time
to shoot at sparrows
They accuse mo of abusing the de
fendants or unjustly prosecuting them
I am responsible for tile conduct of
this office and all the devils In hell
cannot doter me from my duty and
they say the state has no theory WOII
what of It When your old dad took
you out to lick you did you ever
know what his theory was And did
he ask for yours No He just de
cided from tho proof that you were
guilty and lit into you Thats what
we are doing Wo have no theory I
gentlemen we just have the proof
General McCarn continued
They prate of the blue blood and
ancestry of these defendants It al
ways amuses me tho way these tel
lows with blue blood and aneostors
always think of those ancestors when
they are brought face to face with the
law Now a man with blue blood and
ancestors owes something to this blue
blood and those ancestors and no
should think of it before he goes out
to slay r
General McCarn assailed the de
fense for trying to make the case a
1olltical issue and declared that Wasn
Instons entire argument was a poli
tical speech He denounced Washing
ton for assailing Carmacks name ana
declared it must have taken a big foe
to taUt about a dead man that way

Western distributors of dry goods

E H HARRIMAN
IS STRONGER
THAN EVER
1
THIS IS UNQUALIFIED OPINION
OF GEORGE J GOULD
He Says He Has Survived Four Year
of Prosecution and Has Met With
Nothing to His Discredit I
New York March 13B H Harri
man is stronger than ever according
to George J Gould in an interview
published here today I admire Mr
Harriman declared tho head of the
Missouri Pacific and I admire his
courage
For four years he continued the
government devoted all its energies
to attack him and he stood his ground
practically alone Every arm of the
federal law was brought to bear
against him All tho machinery as
set in motion Everything was thrown
into upheaval the entire country was
plunged into the throes of disturbance
even a panic was brought on to
crush him Great fortunes wore lost
and men ruined
Ahdllr Harriman survived
through it all untouched and today
he Is stronger than over 1C ho had
evex done anything wrong he would
svfroly have been made to suffer for
it in tho circumstances But I dont
believe he did anything Willingly un
lawful
His spirit and cpurage aro extra
ordinary Ho has come out ol that
four years of attack and prosecution
victorious without a single thing to
his discredit He has shown the most
wonderful spirit of any man I have
over met Not physically strong he
has an indomitable will and IH afraid
of nothing Ho has unusual capahll
Hies He fought back and won his
battle alone in tho face of misrepre
sentation and the most bitter attacks
When asked If Mr Harriman would
ally himself with any of the Gould
propertIes particularly tho Wabash
system Mr Gould said
No I dont believe he will bO a
director of the Wabash But I know
one man who would welcome him on
the board and that Is myself I now
Mr Harriman very well Ho and 1 are
very good friends Wo ofton meet
and are on tho host of terms
In some quarters Mr Goulds dec
laration of friendship for Mr Harri
man is taken as an indication that
thoro Is no latent feeling of rivalry
or even hostility between tho two
railroad presidents owing to tho fact
