Thomas Ryan of Warren Street Dies of a Wound Inflicted by Salvado Rossi. STORIES OF THE MURDER CONFLICT Rossi Says His Victim Struck Him Twice Before He Drew His Pistol. Salvador Rossi, twenty-six years old, »f No. 245 Mulberry street, New York, last night shot and killed Thomas Ryan, »f No. 278 Warren street, in the ladies’ tabin of the Pennsylvania ferry boat Baltimore of the Dehrossee street route, while the boat was fast in her slip on this side of the river. It was about 9.50 o'clock and passen gers were going aboard and coming off the boat in more or less confusion. The shooting created a panic. Ryan had one of his children with him. He was also accompanied by his. brother, William who had his child with him. The quarrel started over Rossi jostling Kyan's child. Rossi nearly knocked the thild down. The statements concerning the quarrel and the shooting are some what conflicting, but it appears that Ryan railed Rossi “a Sheeoey son of a -” and struck Rossi. Ryan was about six feet from Rossi, when the latter pulled put a 38-calibre revolver and fired at Ryan. The bullet struck him in the left breast and grazed his heart. Ryan was falling with blood flowing from his mouth bad nose when his brother William taught-fcim in his arms. "The Dago shot me,” was almost his last-expression. He died on his way to the City "Hospital. Reasi was accompanied' by Antonio Rpiatto, a New York friend. The two. had been visiting Policeman Caprio at the latter’s home in this city. The quar tel and fight between the two men cre Ited much excitement among the passen gers, but when Rossi drew his revolver leveral women screamed with fright Men nearby rushed to Ryan’s assistance. Few cared to risk a shot from Rossi’s pistol and he had reached the stairway leading to the upper saloon of the boat following in the wake of Spiatto, when John Sinnott, g deck hand, caught him near the top of the stairway Pilot James B. Elder held Spiatto. The upper deck bridges had been hastily hoisted through an order given by someone in authority below in order to prevent Rossi from leaving the boat from the upper deck. Patrolman Entwistle and Detective Gallagher had been summoned immed iately after tbe shooting. They took Rossi and his friend to the Gregory street police station. It was found that Spiatto also carried a revolver. In a statement made in Police Head auarters to Chief Murphy Rossi said:— “I got on the ferryboat and -was pushed by some man. He grabbed me and I asked, ‘What is the matter?’ I said, ‘Excuse me.’ The man called me ‘a Sheeney son of a-,’ and struck me in the face. I had on a pair of eye-glasses, and the glasses fell off when he punched me. The man hit me again, and I pulled my gun and lost my brain and shot him. Humors of all kinds are prolific of worse troubles. They may be entirelv expelled by a thorough course of Hood’s sarsaparilla. THe Jersey City News* Job Printing.

I bought the revolver in Park Row several months ago.” Asked by the Chief why he carried the revolver. Rossi said:— / “Because several times some one has punched me. I told the man to let me go two or three times before I shot him.” William Ryan, the brother of the dead man, said he had his baby by the hand and Thomas had his. He said he was behind. He saw the two Italians brush against his brother’s baby, and heard angry words between his brother and one of the Italians. He reached his brother just in time to prevent his falling to the floor. Both Rossi and his friend Spiatto were arraigned in the First Criminal Court this morning. Rossi was not represent ed by counsel. He was held without bail. Spiatto was fined $25 for carrying n concealed weapon. He was also held in $300 bail as a witness and subsequent ly furinshed bail.
