New York, Nov. 20.–A man shouted that he was “Roaring Bill” Kennedy, the terror of Middletown, Connecticut, fired three shots at the elevated railroad structure in front of No. 10 Bowery, today, and was about the fire again when he was arrested.
When arrested and taken before Sergt. Murtha, he lost his blustering manner, and said in a weak voice:
“I’m nothing but a poor steamfitter, from Middletown, Conn. You can telephone up there and get my character.”
He was locked up.
