Part In Killing Auto
TAKEN INTO CUSTODY
NEW YOHK, Sept. 13. That
.7. Fitzpatrick, federal narcotic
was murdered in the washroom
Atlantic avenue ferryhouse last
morning four hours after the spectacular
drug and liquor . raid on the steamship
King Alexander, was the opinion ex
pressed yesterday by Wallace K. J. Col
lins. . I'nitod States attorney in ltrooklyn.
The murder theory is based on the be
lief that two shots were fired at Fitzpat
rick. the lirst bullet missing him and go
ing through a thin partition. The second
bullet passed through his heart and was
found lodged in his back. The first bul
let has not yet been found.
Directly opposite where Fitzpatrick's
body was discovered there is an open
window, the sill of which is about four
feet from the floor, leading to a blind
passageway from the washroom. The
'shots could easily have been tired through
this window, according to Mr. Collins
"I do not believe that Fitzpatrick com
mitted suicide." said Mr. Collins. "I be
lieve the lirst bullet was lired at him
while he was passing the window and he
drew back when he saw a revolver thrust
at him. the hrst bullet missed, but the
second went through b ltzpatrick's heart.

strenuously objecting to the proposed
change of the afternoon train from Rrat
tleboro south ever the Central Vermont
road. Mr. Hopkins also wired General
Passenger Agent Grant of the Boston' &
Maine in protest against the proposed
Roston & Maine schedule.
Persons familiar with the plight of the
railroads realize that their tables of oper
ating costs and revenue returns form a
strong argument in behalf of curtail
ment, but. they contend, if there are to
be fewer trains it is all the more impor
tant that those trains best meet the con
venience of the traveling public. In the
case of the proitoscd schedules for Rrat
tleboro and vicinity the general opinion
seems to be that railroad officials have
given the public scant consideration.
There seems to be no good reason why
Rrattleboro should not have a morning
train from the south at an hour early
enough to bring New York and Boston
mail here in time for consideration before
dinner, and an afternoon train going south
at an hour late enough to enable subur
banites to spend most of the afternoon
here and still reach their homes by sup-Ir-time.
So far as service on the' West
River line i.s concerned it is ridiculous to
think of any -arrangement that does not
provide a morning train south and a late
afternoon train north.
