Little Italy Is Afraid Of Vendetta New "York, Aug. 20 A curiously mixed emotional atmosphere hovered over the many Italian sections of New York today dread, shame, and red hot indignation. There are as many reasons as there are reactions from the various phases of two sensational murder cases, in which the all-overshadowing spectre is "Vendetta." One reached a climax in the ver dict of guilty of murder in the first degree against Roberto Rafaelo, one of a band of seven kidnappers who snatched five year old Giuseppe Verotti from his mother's arms, held him for weeks for ransom and, being defied by the parents, throttled the boy and tossed his body into the Hud son river. Four others of the gang are yet to be tried. Two are still at large. The other case resembles a grue some octopus, whose tenacles reach ing out to many cities, including De troit, Pittsburgh. Buffalo and Bridge port have snuffed out at least 125 lives without leaving the slightest clue until someone "squealed," thus breaking the first commandment of the Camorra. The authorities today redoubled their vigilance in the vicinity of the Variotta home on Thirteenth street. Further developments in the es tablishments of connections between New York Camorrists and five mys terious murders in this city are toeing eagerly awaited. The New York au thorities have little to say on the matter, beyond the fact that "addi tional arrests are pending that may have an important .bearing on sev eral murders in Bridgeport, Pitts burgh and Buffalo. An investigation of several Italians suspected of Camorristic tendencies in connection with incendiary fires in this city in the past several months is quietly under way. Upon the verifi cations of the suspicions, additional charges of arson may be preferred against certain members of the Ital ian organization. APPROVE BIG LOAN.
