WOMEN KILLED IN NEW YORK CITY
AND THEIR SLAYERS NEVER FOUND.
Tho Pretty Cigar Girl Whose Story Foe
Made the Basia of a Novel Murders
Without Apparent Motive The Polios
New York l as produced as many mysteri
ous murders it which women Lave beta vic
tim? as London. Many of them were quite
as atrocious as the famous Whitechapel
crimes and as full of mystery as the murder
of Eva Mitchell or Amelia Olsea in Chicago.
Not all the m irders of women in this town
have remained mysteries, but there are ten
or a dozeu no .able cases in which the stories
of the crimes have never been revealed and
probably never will lt Tho story of New
York's iuexpl cable murders of women begins
way back it. 183o. April 9 of that year
Dorcas Biyni , alias Helen Jo wit t, was found
with her throat cut. Her murderer was
never captured or even known. The old
residents of New York can still recall the
sensation cau;d at the time by the murder.
This case was simply the beginning. It
was followed six years later by what is still
known as tho "Ciar Girl Mystery," which
i ; ono of New York's most famous crimes.
Pretty Mary Rogers sold ei-rcvs at a little
stcro on Broa iway. She was bright and vi
vacious and I opular uith the customers who
thronged the little store. Among all her ac
quaintances there was none who could name
au enemy, nor was she known to have been
tind;:ly intimate with any man. One day in
ISi'i she wns found murdered. The news of
the crimocatised the greatest sensation New
York had experienced since her evacuation
by the Brit sh soldiery. The girl was so
widely known and so universally liked that
the whole population was interested in find
ing tho murd ;rer, but, tho name of the per
son who com nitted the crime and the cause
of it remain as much a mystery today as
ever. IJUa. Allan Poe perpetuated the
dreadful story by making it the basis of his
novel, ''The Mystery of Marie Roget," and
there is no Js ew Yorker who has not heard
of Mary Rog ?rs' murder.
THE CARLTON HOUSE CASE.
Women n urder mysteries have become
more frequert in recent years. The famous
Carlton house murder was the most sensa
tional within the last decade. In December,
two me j were removing some debris in
the subceilar of tho Carlton house. From
beneath a quantity of loose dirt a well shaped
woman's hand was first exposed. Then the
body of is g jod looking woman was found.
She was clad in a maroon colored dress, but
there was no mark on her person or clothing
by which she cou'.d be identified. Everything
which could possibly lt-nd to the diseoveiy of
who she was had been removed. The peison
or persons inrerested in getting her out of the
way were ei linontly success!":!, not only in
that, but in onceoling their own or her iden
tity. Even the time when the murder was
committed r when she was probably con
cealed in the cellar was never approximately
fixed. The police believe that Benjamin
Grau, who it now serving a ten year sen
tence, in the Trenton penitentiary.'tiad some
thing to do -ith the crime, and will try to
fasten it on 1 im when his time of imprison
ment expires, but there is little chance that
THE RYAN MCRDKR.
The crime which most nearly resembles
those of the Wtiitecbapel fiend was the mur
der of Mary Ryan and her brother Nicholas
Ryan, at No. 1204 Broorpo street, in December,
1S73. Three lives were really taken, because
Mary Ryan was found to lie enceinte. The
murder of this sister and brother was a most
bloody ono, und, like the one which costZora
Burns her lue at Lincoln, Ills., in 1SS3, was
probably committed to shield the poor girl's
lietrayer. Undoubtedly the brother was
killed while crying to avenge bis sister. He
engaged his slayer in a tremendous struggle.
Mary was found lying with her face on the
bed mattrest with her throat cut from ear to
ear. Iler brother's body lay in the hallway.
His throat was also cut, but the floor and
walls were bespattered with blood, and there
were signs of a desperate struggle. The
brother's lio ly was clothed in night attire,
and it was evident that he had been awak
ened by the struggle which cost bis sister her
life, and in coins to her assistance had lost
his own. T to name of Mary Ryan's betrayer
and the slay ir of her.wlf, her brother and her
unborn infu it has remained a secret for fif
Annio Do'vney was a flower g;rl and was
well known about town in 18TU and 1SS0.
People familiarly spoke of her nt "Blonde
Annie," or "Curley Tom," the flower girL
In personal .appearance she was attractive.
Early in ISsJ she was found dend in a house
kept by a woman named Bundt in Prince
street. Not e of the Whiteclmpol crimes ex
eeedi'd this one in atrocity. Tho girl's head
was tied Grt.ily to tho bod on which she lay,
and she was cut in sevoral places. Who did
itf That' what tho New York police tried
to find out and couldn't, nor did they ever
discover who shot Josephine Fortella, aged
23, at No. 77 James street, in September,
1S84. v Equally mysterious was the death of
BBUhknown woman whose body was found
at the cor.ier of Elizabeth and Bleeckar
streets in IS TO. The murdvr of Mary Howard
in East Eighty-first street about ten years
ago was n!Ver satisfactorily explained. It
was supposed that her husband killed her,
but that f a t was never fully established, and
he has so far eluded the vigilant police. New

Tiie Cnsu-diana of Ancient Rome.
There were in ancient Rome 7,500 con
stables, and as tho streets were unligbted at
night, and as beggars and brigands were
even more sturdy and energetic thau they
have ever t een in the Rome of later years, as
tho elder brother of the London Mohawk, the
drunken pitrician, was very unscrupulous,
uid as ev.jry Roman citizen evaded every
police regulation with the greatest ingenuity,
7,500 were none too many. Moreover, the
streets werj so narrow that, although nobody
but the vstals, members of the imperial
family anil a few others were allowed to
drive throjgh them, quarrels and disturs
ances were incessant, even in the hours of
daylight, und a Roman Gilbert, had there
licen such a creature, would have found a
delighted Learer in the person of every con
stable Btt their woes were unsung; and so
wero those of the firemen, although the lat
ter seem t ) have had enough to do; for, in
spito of beiug "fireproof," ancient Rume was
remarkable for stu')cndous coiifhtgratious.
Some were willfully caused, as when Nero
burned the city in order to rebuild it on a
better plan, but accidental tires occurred fre
quently, ai d 7,000 firemen were necessary to
aid the po ice. Recently discovered inscrip
tions have revealed all the details of their
organization, but the only detail in it which
would be of great service nowadays is that

K 'FRISCO TRAGEDY RECALLED.
Oow Jim Dobson, tho Terror. Came Near
Dying with Bis I toots On.
"This is the man who killed Jim Dobson,"
said my friend, as we crossed Twenty-third
street at tho junction of Broadway and Fifth
avenue the other afternoon.
This recalled the life and death of one of
the worst men that ever set foot on the Pa
Every town in California, Nevada and
Colorado, especially in their early days, has
had its terror. J im Dobson was for many
years the "terror" of San Francisco. Ha
was a hydra headed "terror," too. Wher
ever there were races, fairs, billiard matches,
prize fights or excitement of any kind, Jim
Dobson was there. He had killed several
men and at torn pted to kill many more. He
never paid for anything, and was generally
well supplied with funds, although he never
did a stroke of work. Honest men shunned
him, and many of those who knew him feared
him. His associates were of the lowest of
In one of his shooting scrapes, during a
debauch some twenty years ago, his aim was
so inaccurate that he emptied the seven
chnnilers of his revolver in trying to kill his
adversary, without hitting him. Throwing
his revolver ou tho floor be exclaimed:
"Hero, you , you shoot. I'll
bo if 1 can."
When Rudolph went to San Francisco,
about nineteen years ago, to play John Deery
for tho billiard championship of America,
an audience of nearly 8,000 pei-sons gathered
iu the Mechanics' pavilion to witness the
game. Of course Dobson was there. He had
bet heavily on Deery. 'Then -it becatno ap
parent that Rudolph would win he having
but 10 to go, with the tails in band, to
Deery's 103 Dobson stepped tip to the table
just as Rudolph was about to shoot, and,
grabbing o::o of tho object bolls, threw it at
randem among the audience. Some one
caught it on tho nose. Although Deery was
tho favorite the audience wanted fair play.
Cries of "Put him outl" proceeded from all
parts of tho halL Turning to the audience,
"Thore ain't a : here who can
put me out. If any oue attempts it I'll put
daylight through him."
No ono attempted it. Tho' ball was brought
back and placed on the table, and Rudolph
ran the gamo out
These are only two instances of many of a
similar naturo, but they will suffice to indi
cate tho man's desperate disposition. It was
about a year later that ho met his death
very unexpectedly, too, for bis slayer was a
quiet, iuoffensive amateur bilhar iist of some
repute. They had met at a fancy ball about
a week previously. Dobson., wio hod been
"backing tho tiger" that night vith indiffer
ent success, asked for a loan o $30, which
was refusoi With an oath the rmf
fian told the man who had dared refuse
to comply with his wishes that ho had better
keep o'-T. of his way ir. the future, as he
would kiil him on sight.
"Oh, 1 guess 'Frisco is large enough to hold
us both," was the calm reply.
On the following Saturday the tjro men
mot on Montgomery street, near Market
Dobson stepped up to the other man and
"I thought I told you to keep out of my
way. Now I'm going to kill you!" And he
made a motion a', if to draw his pistol.
"You wouldu t shoot an unarmed man,
would youf inquired tho bilhardist, calmly.
"Well, if you aist heeled you go and heel
yourself, you ; for the next time
I meet you I'll shoot yon anyhow."
The Ulliardist, knowing the desperate
character of the man whose enmity he had
incurred, procured a pistol forthwith. He
then went to tho Occidental hotel aud played
a few games of billiards. On going out he
saw Dobson half a block distant coming
toward him. Thinking he had been seen, be
know it would be useless to retreat, so ho
awaited Dobson's coming in the hotel vesti
bule. When tho latter had got within a few
foct of Lira the billiardist stepped out and
fired two bullets in quick succession into
Dobson's body before the latter had time to
cock his revolver. Dobson dropped on tho
"I nover thought you'd do this."
"Well," said the other, "I thought you
would, and so I mado up my mind to get
ahead of you if I could."
Dobson wns then carried into a drug store
across tho street.
"Pull my boots off," he said faintly to the
bystanders, and as soon as this was doue he
Ho had often been told that he would "die
with bis boots on." as is generally the case
with desiieradocs of his ilk in the west, but
even in this he cheated publio opinion.
The man who thus rid the community of
Jim Dobsons abnoxious presence was not
only promptly acquitted, but even made a
hero of by many and complimented by some
of tho daily papers. I, who had seen Dobson
on a CalUtoga train compel the conductor to
give him chango for (30, when he had given
him only $10 for his fare, always looked upon
the killiug as an act of self defense and upon
the billiardist as a brave man. New York
Tho Gentle Lizard.
Lizards, says a writer in The Popular
Science Monthly, are the most good natured
little animals possible. "I have often seen,"
said he, "at the old trestle at May's Landing,
a little lizard and sometimes two perch upon
the head and back of an adult, and there be
allowed to sit for fully an hour. The sharp
claws of these youngsters seemed at times
dangerously near tho eyes and ears of the pa
tient old one, but It offered no resistance, and
when I forced such burdened lizards to move,
it was always with a deliberateness that sug
gested that they were really averse to disturb
ing those resting upon them. Again, adults
would often rest upon each other in what ap
peared to be a most uncomfortable manner
for tho ono beneath, often pressing the head
of the latter into the sand aud completely
blinding it for tho time; yet I never saw the
slightest evidence of ill humor, not even
when they were being fed. Often it hap
pened that some sleepy fellow wonld quietly
snap up the fly toward which another lizard
was cautiously crawling, yet no fight en
sued. Anything more trying than this to
humanity cannot be imagined, yet the lizards
took every such occurrence as a matter of
