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 versation. 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.
