NRW YORK. Aug. 18. Coming as a
climax to a long series of crimes of
violence and craft , the kidnapping of
8-year-old Antonio Manlno from his
home in Brooklyn by a band of Hal-
Han desperadoes has aroused a pitch
of Interest seldom evinced In this
community , where HO much lawless
ness picturesque or sordid Is dally
chronicled. Rverywhoro that men and
women meet It Is a chief topic of con
It Is not so much the settling of the
crime , though that Is sulllclently the
atrical , nor the widespread sympathy
for the boy and his bereft parents ,
that has caused the unusual public In
terest In the case. It Is the wonder-
whore nil this imported criminality
Is leading to , and the half fear that
the bands of "Black Hands" and the
Mafia , emboldened by the failure of
pollen efforts to suppress them or
protect tholr homes , may widen their
fields of operation , heretofore restrict
ed to their own countrymen.
It seems to the average New York
er as If the worst feature of Italy's
most lawless districts were to be
grafted upon orderly Now York ,
which Is unable to deal with this
growth of exotic crime.
The offenses that hnvo been com
mitted of late by organized bands of
Italians here are not all crimes of ox-
tortlon. Besides , kidnapping and
threats of murder , counterfeiting and
the stealing or forging of thousands
of citizenship papers are laid to
them. The result has been a great
and unjust cry against Italians In
general. Nobody feels this moro
keenly than do the many law-abiding
Italians who live In the city and Its
Immediate vicinity.
Washington Is to be appealed to ,
There Is a clamor that the immigra
tion laws bo more rigidly enforced ,
and Ellis Island authorities will be
asked to scrutinize moro carefully the
papers of the Italians who come to
this country to seek permanent homes.
That many convicts have been able
to enter this country there can bo no
doubt. For this , congress will be ap-
appealed to to enact now laws which
It la hoped will prevent the Importa
tion of criminal aliens.
While Captain Roonoy and the de
tectives who have been at work on
the Mnnlo kidnapping case from the
beginning , will not say openly that
they bollovo the hey will never bo
restored to his parents alive , yet
among themselves they do not hesi
tate to whisper their ftjars. Nobody
knows hotter than do captnln Roe
noy and Detective Sergeant Antonio
Vachrls the desperate character of
the kidnappers.
