While this examination nr. M. .!!..,,.
Las been proceeding the london police lia3
been busy getting at the ends of the,
tangled clue that pointed to Deeming
being the notorious "Jack the Riper,"
who murdered half a dozen or more of the
depraved women of the Whitechapel dis
trict in l!ivS; and though the evidence is
not conclusive it presents many facts that
ieem to indicate that Deeming and "Jack ;
the Kipper" are identical. Deeming was '
In London during the autumn of lRss, '
when several of the Whitechapel murders
occurred. On the 7th of August in that
year, Martha Turner was fouud dead with
thirty-nine stab wounds, on a landing in
the model dwellings known as Geroege
Yard buildings, Commercial street, Spital
fields. On Alter 81 nnntl.iT u-r..u.. 1....
longing also to the unfortunate class, and
known as Mrs. Nichols, was murdered and
mutilated in Muck's Iiow, Whitechapel.
The Story of Dressmaker.
And iust here it will hewell to intrnilin
the fact that a dressmaker living in the'
East end of London has recognized a por-'
trait of Deeming as that of a man who'
courted her under the name of Iawaoii in,
the autumn of 1SS. On Sept. 7 came a'
murder with which the dressmaker con
nects Detuning. Mrs. Chapman was the'
fourth victim, and her body was found
after daylight on the morning of Sept. S. j
Her throat had been cut from ear to ear
and the body cut open as if by a dissector. !
The heart lay on the -.round, and a por-!
tion of the remains had lieen tied around
the neck. Like the other women tilleil '
he was a dissolute character, and lived in
wretched aud densely populated part of
Deeming' Significant Remark.
The dressmaker snvsthkt she met lUm.
lng or Lawson, as he was known to Ler, !
on the afternoon of Sept. 30. They had a
long conversation on the subject of the '
Whitechapel murders, and Deeming'
showed that he was conversant with every '
one of the horrible details. A remark '
was made concerning a suggestion in a
newspaper that the murders were com-'
mltted shortly after midnight. Deeming '
earned to forget to whom he was talkiug, '
and said to the girl; Ixxk at the time: I
couia not nave committed tbe murders."
The girl was very much struck by this uncalled-for
remark, and she has often since
thought of it.
Bad an Hour for the Work.
dropped by Deeming, and his subsequent
actions, aroused a suspicion in the girl's
mlttM that Deeming perhaps was the mur- I
ierer, she did not until now oommunicate
her suspicions to the police. The dress
maker says that t he time Deeming left her 1
company on tbe evening of Sept. 7 was
about au hour before the time at which
medical testimony at the inminst i
that the Chapman woman was probably
murdered. A few days after the crime the
man she believed was Deeming disap
peared, and she never saw him again.
RECORD OF THE MURDERER.
Deeming In London When the Crimes '
The dressmaker's staten.ent shows that '
fop part of the time, at toast, he was in 1
London, and this again arouses the sus- J
plcion that be was there at the time the
other murders or that year were com
mitted. There was nothing to prevent
htm from being there from April to
November, inss, during which time seven
of the murders were committed. Th
chronology of Deeming's record, so far as 1
ascertained, aereea with tlm itmnti.t..'.!
story. It is as follows: Frederick Bailey
Deeming marries Miss Mary James, leaves
England for Cape Town 18S0. Deeming
joined by his wife (now identified as Alary
James), in Sydney 18S2. Deeming re
ceived Bix weeks imprisonment for theft
1882. ' Absconded from Sydney on charge
of fraudulent insolvency JSSfl. Returns
to England (11th of August) and to Birk
enshead, leaving that place and his wife
after the birth of his fourth child, about
four months afterwards 1889.
Kept aa.Mortment of Knives.
Deeming returned from South Africa In
the spring of 1M. He had a formidable
assortment of knives. Samuel Mercer, of
Kainhill, who was well acquainted with
Deeming, says: '"Deeming represented him
self to me to be a military man, and said
hs had fourteen scars on him. lie went
onto talk very glibly as to the engage
ments and hand-to-hand encounters which
be had gone through as Inspector In the
army, lis would not call himself a soldier
altogetherpalthough he had said that he
&d been under fire. Deeming showed me
various wei.pons, including sWorus, fcniven,
spears, and an assegai, which he said he
bad got from Zuzuhmd.
l'ron I of a Handsome Sword.
"He particularly dwelt on a very hand
ome sworn, which was adorned with sil
ver and a b.tnd of gold, and which he said
lie had fought two hours for. He next
allowed me h beautiful knife with a sheath
made of woven silver wire, aud said it had
belonged to Cetewayo." The opinion that
Deeming committed several of the Kipper
murders is t uvnut .netted in public opinion
by the dressmaker's siaieiiieui,.

hilation of the Robbers Expected, but
a Gory Fight Certain.
Helena, Mont., April 8. The first re
sults of the war looking to the extermina
tion of horse thieves in eastern Montana
and Wyoming came to light yesterday
when the body of a man was found on Al
kali creek, about ten miles from Billings.
He had been shot through the head, and
had iK'en dead for several days. The man
has not. been ident ified, but is supposed to
be a Wyoming rustler en route to Canada.
Two other men suspected to lie in com
munication with horse thieves have mys
teriously disappeared within the past few
days. This is only the beginning of the
end. Two parties are now out after the
rustlers, who are located at the Jackson
Hole, in Wyoming, with a thousand stole
horses in their possession.
Kept Their departure a Secret.

Win Kobcrts, 1, ft liig Timber, in i'.is;eni

pack nninnls, guns, Hiii.nuni' ion ;..:,1
I grub. Their departure was kept a w. tvt
lis tar as possible, newspap -rs being
nsked to withhold all information for the.
pl.sent. As the party his prolnidv
reached its destination and will rsol per
mit any of t he numerous sympathizers of
the kiang to precede them, tiie news cannot
reach the camp where the thieves are
"Holed l'p" in the Basin.
Another party under the lead of the
Chapman brothers is also out after the
thieves, and the latter party expects to
reach the north end of the basin in which
the thieves are "holed up" about the time
Roberts' party reaches the southern end,
when the work of ridding the country of
these bold thieves will begin. The party
organized in Montana will, by an under
standing, meet other parties along the
route and make a rush for the den of the
thieves with enough men to accomplish
the capture of the entire outfit. It is un
derstood that the cattle companies raised
930,000 for the purpose of apprehending
these horse thieves.
Desperate Men to Capture.
The thieves have many sympathizers,
and there are also a numlierof men in
Wyoming who are afraid to give informa
tion that wiU lead to the capture of any of
these men: li.it when they seethe formida
ble array of men engaged in hunting down
the rustlers it is probable that they will
take couragi aud impart the information
required. It is evident that there will lie
some bloody work in Wyoming in a few
days, as the thieves from the nature of
their calling and the success which has at
tended them are desperate men, who go
armed to the tteth night and day. It is
not probable that they willsubmit quietly
A Bold Clang of Scoundrels.
There is still a great deal of snow on tl e
mountains and it may be slow work fix
the cattle men to reach their quarry, but
they have the satisfaction of knowing that
the thieves will have no opportunity of
getting away from their mountain fast
ness and snow-liound basin. The depre
dations of these thieves are t he boldest
ever recorded. They have extended their
operations t the very edge of the Missotu I
river, and have stolen ho.. ses in towns as
well as upon ranges. In the winter the
main body remains in camp and plans the
summer's campaign, when the party is
divided and works in different directions.
