While tho authorl- (les In Barro bellcvo they are narrowing down the facts connected with tho mur der of Mrs. Harry E. Broadwell thus far they have not given out much Infor mation on the subject and persons who havo been taken In custody have been released after they havo been closely questioned. Thero wero reports, very general in nature, to-day that two per sons had been arrested In Barre and tho statement even wont so far as to locate tho houso where the crlmo was committed. The actions of a stone-cutter and two women In Barro are being closely watched and It Is understood that detectives are working on the case. Tho Boston Post, Boston Traveler and Boston American have special representa tives of their papers In Barre who are giving considerable Information to the officers which may materially help In the solving of the murder problem. One man taken Into custody at Bethel was released for lack of evidence to hold him. The report of Dr. B. H. Stone that no alcohol was found In the woman's stom ach Indicated that a Becond supper prob ably wns not eaten. The fact that death was due to strangulation was substan tiated by the report of Dr. Stone. The food In the stomach shows that It was eaten four hours before the murder occurred. If that Is tho case, Jlrs. Broadwell was slain about 9:30 o'clock, which substantiates the theory that the woman was planning to go to her home about the time tho moving pictures wero closed. It Is said she was seen allvo after 9.30. Jtuch of tho Information given to tho authorities Is by a woman who, it Is claimed, was in company with Jlrs. Broadwell the night of tho murder and who left her at some time before mid night. The authorities are satisfied that whoever drow the handkerchief about tho woman's nock did not Intend to commit murder, but to restrain tho woman from making too much noise. Waterbury, Jlay 7. Some excitement was created In town Tuesday over the taking to Barre by Deputy Sheriff H. J. Parchcr of a Rlcker mountain resident who, It was felt, could give some light on the Broadwell murder. The young man confesses to having been In Barro that night and while It Is not thought ho was Implicated ill the crlmo It Is intimated that ho knows something of the where abouts of a suspect. Officers hero are on the lookout for any clue that will help In the unravelling of this mystery. LADIES' SEWING CIRCLE IS INCORPORATED Jlontpeller, Jlay 7.
