MYSTKKIES OF MURDERS.
THE 3EST DETECTIVES ARE POW
ERLESS WITHOUT A CLEW.
Bow the O'Connor Murder Mystery Was
8olved by avn Accident Caaea That Bare
Kemaloed I'nsohed for Many Tears and
Probably Atwuya Will.
A&Lttant Suirin ndont of Police Roger
O'Mara Ls pcrhups one of the best known
police ofllcial in America. It is, therefore,
nothiug to be wonU red at that The Times ro
ct'ived a roiitiost to have bka givo his views in
regard to myHtorio is murdsrs, with especial
reference to tlio U't itechapel umrdors.
"There aro three pUas.s of rourdor, each
one peculiar -in itedlf, and not ullied to the
other. The fSrst on j is the disappearance of
a person who has baen raurdersd, and j"et no
proof can be fKtabli ;hcd that tho person has
really boen inurdori'd.
"An Illustration of this can bo found in
the London crimtuil records of livl'J, whon
Cutotn House Oilicer OHTonnor was missed
from his desk and never showed up again. It
was supposed for s me time thut ho had de
campod with some of tho government funds,
but his accounts being correct aud he having
been sceu tho cvoa ng previous to his disap
pearance, in gixxl 1 eiilth, It was supposed by
soldo personB thut Ue might have bson mur
dered. Vet tho detective ability of London,
at that time thob-stlu the wrirld, was for
soma days doubtful concerning tho fate of
O'Connor. Each mombur of tho detoctivo
agoncios aud ea.'h f litir had his own peculiar
theory of what ha 1 bnpponed to O'Connor.
Some siiKictod suicide in tho rirer Thames;
sorao suggpstod sudden majital absrration,
through which he aad -wand-sred out of the
city nnd di'id from exposure and privation.
Some stiftjstod or urdor, but could givo no
thoory of why he :hould bo mitrdornd, as he
hud htlle or no mont-y on his parson.. Tho
murder theory hml boon opjiose'l by a largo
majority of tho tk-otland Yai-d d'teoUve.5
and ediiors of japi rs. and also by tho public
at lurge, as no hod." had been found.
rorso BY ACCtDEST.
'In the rcurse ot a few dnys," said Super
intendent O'Mara. "It was discovered that
O'Connor had been carrying on. a criminal
intimacy with a narried lady, Mrs. Maria
Manning, wife of I red Oeorge Manning, both
husband and wife occupying a good position
la society Tho su pariatMndent of the Scot
land Yard detect ve agency vlsitod Mau-
ning's house, and bad uu interview with Mrs.
Mannuvr. Sho was quite cool and self not
sensed, and readily admitted that she had
known O'Connor well, but had not seen bun
tor somo tune, i.er uusnanu also made a
similar statement, and O'Connor's disappear
ance remained unaccouutable for some days
longer. Cut, as t.o Insane man was found
wandering either In the city or In the
Thames, the murder atheory was strain
adopted, and the detectives called at Man
ning s house one morning and told Mrs. Man'
nine they wished to search the house. She
was cooking a goote on a spit at the time, and
most obligingly s 30 wed them through the
house from the cedar to the attic, searching
trunks, presses, cupboards, etc., without
avail. The detect ves concluded that the
Mannings had no tuowledge of the disappear'
anoe of O'Connor, and exonerated them, but
as they were leaving the house and passing
through the kitd.on one of the detectives
by accident ploctd his foot on the flag in
front of the fire, above which Mrs. Manning
was cooking tho t oose. 7 ho flag sunk a lit
tle under tho pross iro of his foot, and he bad
it removed, aud underneath the flag, at the
depth of throo ftet, O'Connor's body was
found hi full dress just as be bad been mur
"O'Connor was a bachelor, 43 years of age,
and occupied a slitpmg room hi a tenement
house, and bad a hirge amount of his savings
in a bank in his room. Mrs. Manning and
bur husband knew this, and conspired to
murder O'Connor, and when he privately
visited the liouso Sio shot him and Manning
bunou him under ihe uag in the kitchen.
"If tho dctectiv had not, by pure chance,
happened to step on the flag, O'Connor's
murder would never have boen discovered.
Thus an accidental incident furnished a clow
that was all that was noocssary to unearth
the bloodv mystery.
"Mrs. Manning took his Latch key and the
keys to his desks, Tent to Lis room and ob
tained all tho money ha posseted, Both
Mr and Mrs. Manning were banged In front
of iiorscuiongcr Lono Jail in lb4H.
A PEXN8TLVAK1A STtTRDCR.
"Another caso of mysterious disappear-
anee," continued Bunerintflndent O'Mara,
"afterward found to bo adoublo murder, was
that of tho two grandchildren of William
Showers, oged fW yenrs, who murdered both
children nnd burh d tiiem iu the garden. The
difficulty was to e-toblisb that a murder hod
boen committed, iut when tho bodies were
found there was n j difficulty In placing the
guilt on Showers. Uo was executed in Lmba
non county, Pa., list month.
"Another phut of murder is where the
dead bodyisfouni and mutilated so there
could be no doubt thnt a murder has been
committed, yet no available clew to the mur
derer. Tho murdor of Dr. B uracil, at Ita 81
Bond street, Kew York, in ltS7, comes under
this hood, as also docs the Nathan murder,
In each of these ct scs it was self evident that a
murder had been committed, but, us no clew
had been left, no s-nglo starting link on which
to found a clow as to who perpetrated the
deed could be found, and the murders re
mained and ever will remain a mystery.
"Yet anotbur k nd of murder is where tho
murder Is estabdshed and tho murderer
fcuown, yet no trace of him Is to be found.
"Why the detectives were untblo to fathom
the mystery of th Nathan and Eurdell mur
ders was because 1 be murderers in both cases
left no clows to .heir identification. In the
case of Maxwell, alios Hugh M. Brooks, who
murdered C. Artjur I "roller and concealed
his body in a tn.nl:, the murderer was well
known, and by leaving a singlo clew that he
hod started on t. west bound train, every
other link was eaiiiy found. If the first link
in the chain had loon undiscovered Maxwell
would never hn o been brought to -justice.
My impression in tho Liurdell end ftatbon
murders." Mr. O'Mara said, "is that both
were perpetrated by jiersons Living in tho
samo Louses with tho murdered men. ''Pitts

LIVING '-ON SUPERSTITION.
Peeple Who Support Soothaayera, Fortune
Teller and Astrologers.
There are in this, as there are in all Largs
cities, individuals who Live because of tb
superstitions of others. The "fortune tollers.''
"astrologers," . "clalrvoyanU'' and "sooth-
yers" flourish the year round. It would b
a surprise if .the List of people who visit these
places should become known. They are not
ignorant victims ail of them, either, but men
and women of bright minds and great intelli
gence. But from servant girls, many of
whom aro ignorant, tho fortune tollers reap a
harvest, and much of their scanty earnings
go to the "soothsayer's" purse in exchange
for a few words of comfortinc; rubbish that a
schoolboy could chatter as well.
On Blank street stands a certain little frame
house. It is old and weather beaten, aud a
window with varicolored gloss would make
it on object of curiosity. It does not look like
a place where uncanny spirits abide, neither
does it have a supernatural appearance. Jut
ting out from above the door is a sign: "Mad
am Blank, Artxologist and Fortune Teilor.
Gives satisfaction." Resting against the side
of the house is another sign, worn and old,
which informs the passer by that the madam
is a iortune teller, who works charts of luck
and brings back absent friends.
A reporter's ring at the door brought a
woman about thirty-five years old with
raven hair and black piercing eyes. She was
weu areseea, and informed the visitor with
slight French accent that she was tho
madam Two middle aged and well dressed
Ladies were in the room, and the reporter
was ushered into a back room to wait until
the madam bad read the fortunes of the two
ladies. He did not have long to wait, and
soon he was within the "Inner Temple of tho

furnished; a few chairs, a bureau, a dresser.

the future Lifted, the visitor banded over the
requisite fee fifty cents and seated himself
in a chair beside the table. Madam took up
a well thumbed and rather dirty deck of
cards, save that they bad pictures of different
kinds, numliers and hieroglyphics that mad

ago, youth, a letter, sickness, good luck, bad
The cards wore shuffled once, the visitor
was told to make a mental wish, after which
he cut the cards four times. Then they were
spread out on the table. Of course the visitor
would get his wish, the cards said so. He
will be fortunate in business, will live to
ripe old age, have a great deal of wealth; in
fact, according to the cards, be had a won
"But will I marry the girl I lover asked
the visitor, with a deep sigh.
Madam gathered up the cards again, and
while shuffling them kept a running fire of
questions, all shrewdly worded, to which, of
course, proper answers were made, and she
then discovered that the Lady whom the vis
itor wanted to marry was fair haired and
blue eyed, had red cheeks, and was perfectly
"Y es" said madam, "she loves you dearlv.
and Lf you don't marry her it's vour own

you for a gift,' and she will accept u at

and don't love her, but when you ask her to
marry you she will know better. Do what I
tell you, and you will be bappv. There Is

lady, but you must not mind anything she

For half an hour or more mnrinrp continued
on this strain, and offered to sell for $2.00 loss

blue silk which If carried in the visitor's
pocket would Insure a speedy marriage with

with servant girls and girls who work. She
would have nothing to do with disreputable
characters, and as far as she knew none ever
came to see her. While the reporter was
"having bis fortune told" two stylishly
dressed young ladies, both veiled, came in
and were sent to the back room to wait until
madam was 'ready for them. Indianapolis
Inherited a Dealre to Steal.
Judge Egbert Jamieson tells a curious starv
of a young culprit who has been before him
in the criminal court several times. It Is the
judge's desire, In all cases where it is possible
and advisable, to deal leniently with the very
young prisoners brought before him. The
boy in question was charged with hor. j steal
ing. It was not bis first offense. He bad
been arrested many times before on the same
charge. Judge Jameison made inquiries
about the young fellow, and learned that a
few months before he was born his father
had been arrested for horse stealing, con
victed and sentenced to a term of years in
the penitentiary. The blow fell with crush'
lug torce upon tbe poor wile. A child was
born. It was a boy, and ever since he reached
the age of 8 years, he has felt impelled to
steal every horse he sees. The judge believes
it was a case of pre-natal influence. He sent
the boy to the Bridewell until he shall be
come of age. Chicago Herald.

"Because a feeling of repugnance comes
over me whenever I think of a person being
buried beneath tbe ground and becoming an
object of repulsion which is very revolting to
contemplate. I certainly shall be cremated

Some savage tribes think books speak to
tbe readers. Caribs and Guiana Indians so
believed, and same Esquimaux, seeing a priest
read from the Evangelists, thought that he
heard tbe voice of the book and repeated it to
them. Tribes in Africa, South America and
Oceanica thought the reader was conversing
with the book, and Weddall said a Fuegian
put tbe book to his ear in order to hear the
sound of the voice that spoke to the reader.
In West Australia books and letters are
thought to reveal hidden secrets, and are
called "speaking papers." Canadian Indians,
BraziUana and Peruvians thought books and
