most Improbable character.
In every precinct, too, throughout tbe city
the police have been warned to keep on the
lookost for any one who answers to the dr.
scrlptlon of the supposed murderer which baa
been famished by Mary Mlulter, tbe house
keeper of the botel.
That they are on tho alert U shown by the
taot that one arrest baa already been made In

This srrest waa made about 1 o'clock this

The others were Willi itn Bcklr, Mary ltellly,

Alice Sullivan.
At 10.30 this morning Capt. O'Connor ap.

Florence May was discharged, however.
Most of them were picked op by the police
and the detectives In tbe wretched dive which
abound in the neighborhood of Cherry and
Water itreets.
It la said that the man William flekle la a
sailor, and was arrested on board ot one of tbe
vessels lying along South atreet. lie wa seen
with "Old Shakespeare" within the past two
or three days.
Francis or Freno iy " Is a well-known char
acter In tbe neighborhood, and Is sa d to be a
desperate man. He la described by Bartender
Thompson, of the But Hirer Hotel, aa a dark,
swartliy-tklnne man, of medium height, and
Is snppo.cd to be half negro and bait Spaniard.
He csme from Cuba, and has recently occu
pied rooms at the "botel" on seeral occa
sions witb different women, of tbe most aban
doned class. He wss there nn Wednesday
night, and nn Thursday night bad a room
alone on the top floor, adjoining the one occu
pied by "Old Shakespeare "and the supposed
"Jack the Hipper."
William C. Mannlx, a coat bearer, wbo
works at the South street coal docks, and who"
jays be has lived with his wife at the East Side
Hotel during the paat week, told an Evening
Would reporter thla morning that "Frenchy."
who had a room on tho earns floor with him,
had on Wedneaday morning tried to break Into
his wife's room after he had gone to work.
He had threatened his wlfo wltn terrible
comeqneuces If she did not let him In, but she
refused to open the door, and ue finally went
away breathing vengeance. Mannlx ssys he
saw Frenchy lying drnnk In the narrow hall.
way on the top floor late on Thursday night,
when be went to his room.
Tbe description of tbe murderer upon which
the police are working was given by Mary
Mlnlter, the assistant housekeeper, who was
the only person who saw the old woman snd
ber compsnlon come in Thursday night and
go npatairs together.
She says he was abont 5 feet 8 lnehea In
height and was lightly built. Ills festnres
were sharp and bis nose was long and came
down to a sharp point.
Ills ninitache was brown and hoary, and tne
ends, which were long, neither curled nor
drooped, but seemed to stand out perfectly
strslght, like the whiskcra of a cat.
Ills clothing was dnsty snd well worn, and
be wore a derby hat thst waa broken and
dented at the top, whloh be pulled down over
his eyes.
Ilia ooat was of the cutaway pattern, and,
like bit tronsers, was made of dark-colored
cloth. He wore a cotton shirt and a lOllarthat
wss muoh soiled.
Despite the horror of the tragedy, which oc
curred there only twenty-four hours before,
the wretched rooms ot the 'hotel" were ap
parent!? In as much deman I aa ever last night.
When a reporter of Ins Evem.w Woiii.d
called there about 0 o'cloik, tnu morning toe
transient tenants of tbe old rookery werejuit
beginning to turn out.
Clear-eyed, painted old bags, accompanied
by rough-looking sallormen, Btraxuled at In
tervals down the narrow wooden stairway.
Tue clerk In the barroom said that mo.t of
the rooms o the top floor had been occupied
during the ht.
The door ot the little room where "Old
Shskeipeara" was bntciierel stood wide open.
One ol her shoes, which had been used to prop
up the window, was still in Its place.
The blood-taakrd isattreaa lay nn the floor,
and a pile or fllthr beJ-clothtng ameared with
gore bad been thrown Into the corner.
Tbe great patch of clotted li'ood which bad
dripped over the edge of the bed on the mlddlo
of the floor bad not yet been removed. Tne
stench In tbe plsoe wsa horrible and sleksnlng.
AI tbe end ol the narrow passageway lined
on each side with these miserable little rooms
and Just over the bead ot the stslrs Is a scuttle
opening on the roof. It can be reached by a
small Iron ladder.
One of tne theories advanced to aeoonnt for
the escape of the murderer without being seeu
as bo pasted out, Is Hi at he climbed up through
this scuttle and pasacd oierto a neighboring
Toe only roof which be could have reached,
for all tbe adjo'nlng buildings but one are con
alderauly lower than tho East Hirer lintel, was
that of the furnished-room house at SSJ Water
street. This 1 next door to tho hotel and Is
kept by a man narard llerlincr.
It wa said at tins place thla morning that
the scuttle on the root was alwsys kept fast
ened on the Inside and no one could possibly
get Into the house In that way.
On the other hand, if the murderer bad fin
ished bis bloody work before 1 o'clock In the
morning, be conld hare gone down the stair
way and pssaed oot Into the atreet through the
prlrste drlnklng-room, witboutattractlng any
attontlon Irom thoao In the banoom adjoining.
Many were In tbe habit ot doing tbls every
evening, Ilartender bhlne said, and nnless
some ono had happened to step Into the pas
sageway at the time a person going out would
escspe notice entirely.
Alter one o'clock tne door trading from the
hallway Into the private room is locked and the
key Is taken by the night bartender. This door
is not opened again nntll five o'clock In the
morning. Tbe ball door opening Into Ibe
atreet It kept looked all night long and the key
Is taken from the lock.
It Is barely possli le that the murderer mlcbt
have waited until B o'clock before he left the
pi ice, but this Is oot regarded as prohable by
the pollc, as he would have had fully two
hours In which to complete his work and then
get away before the door was closed at 1

Astrsnge thing about the case is thst no

turo of the room or on the door knob or wood
How a man conld accomplish such a fearful
butchery without having the marks of It npon
blm Is a mystery which is not yet explained.
Daring tbe morning Detective Dorsu and
Policeman Cunningham, of the Oak street sta
tion, were stationed at the house. They were
on ihe lookout for people wbo might visit the
place, and who might be able to give some in
formation regarding "Old Shakespeare" or
ber companion.
lbere was considerable excitement at tbe
botel Juit before daybreak this morning. A
lamp in the housekeeper's room on the third
floor waa overturned, and It set Are to tbe bed
clothing npon which It fell.
It waa knooked over by a flapolng window
curtain when no one was In the room snd It
bad smouldered for some time before It waa
discovered, 'the hallways were filled with
smoke and an alarm was sent out.
The Are was extinguished, however, before
the nre-englnes arrived.
Inspcctoi Dyrnes declined to say this morn
ing whether be thought tbe mnrdertr ot "Old
Shakespeare" was resliy "Jack the Ripper"
or only an ImRator of the notorlons White
Cbspel butcher ot London.
He denied, however, thst he bad ever orltl
claed the work of the London police, or
boasted that such crimes could not be com
mitted In New York without a speedy arrested
of tho murderer.
Tbe general opinion among tbe members of
the force who are working npon tne
case Is that If the slayer of "Old
bhakeipcare" It not really "Jack the
Hipper," be Is a person wbo bos followed
the blstory of the crimes of tbe Ixjnilon mur
derer very closely, and bas followed bis
methods alraont identically.
"Jack tbe Hipper "usually cnt tbe throats
ol lil victim before be disembowelled them
andcirvrd them up, and In the ptesent case
the evidence shows that th woman was stran
gled aw.
Dr. Wlllam T. Jenkins, Deputy Coroner,
whose skill brings him Into requisition for all
the difficult autopsies coming to tbe Depart
ment, went to Ilellevue thla morning and
mods an autopsy on the body of the victim.
'Ihe mutilated form ot the old woman was
brought Into one ot tbe little post-mortem ex
amination rooms of tbe Morgue, and, in tbe
ptesesce of seven doctors from Ilellevue and
an Evenimi Woki r reporter alone, Dr. Jenkins
made his examination.
He found that death was probably caused by
strangulation, the murderer having probably
first choked tho woman and then
while tho body was yet warm, mutilated It with
Ms big knife.
He found, however, a cut on tho right ear,
from which blood had flowed, and wblcb Is
evtdenoe that a struggle took place between
tne murderer and bis victim before tbe Hipper
accomplished btspurpone.
The autopsy showed thit the first cut msde
with the knife was a downward thrust near the
nvel, with the kntlo held perpendicularly.
from that there was a Jigged cut four Inches
deep and nhlch wai carrlttl round to Ihe back
ol the body, ending one Inch above the tcrml
natlonof theaplnal column.
Toe two cnta lu the oticrlor reglin forming
tbe murderer's cro.s were six Inches long and
one Inch deep.
1'artof the Intestines were minting snd the
left ovary waa completely torn away.
Ou the woman's neck were three abrasions,
taused when Ihe woman wss cooked.
The Brooklyn police evidently obtained
a cine to the murderer, as Cllef of I'ollco
Campbell sent out to all the siatlon-housca in
llrioklyn a description of a msn wanted In
conuectmo vtlth the murdsr. Ths message

Several precinct detectives were cslled to
Drooklrn I'ollce Uea 'quarters this morning
and sent on a special mUilon. When asked If
they were working on the murder osse they
declined to speak on tbe subject.
J. F. Devoe, night clerk at the llatflcM
House, 40 and 48 Hidge street, told the police'
thst he believed that a man who answers the
description sent out by Inspector Byrnes
stopped at bis plsce on Thursday last.
When Devoe came on duty on Thursday
night he aavs be saw written on a slate a mes
sage left for Blm by the day olerk. It read:
1 Wake up lodger In room 63 at 9. BO. Ssys bo
bss got Important business"
At that honr Dcroo entered room No. W and
awoke the lodgor. Ue shook him by the arm.
Tne man Jumped out of bed and looked fright
ened. Ho dl I not say a word, and Devoe took
a good look at him.
Devoe saya that he learned that tho man en
tered tho lodilng-house about 11 o'tlock ou
Thnrsday morning, and said mat he was going
to sleep. He asked the clerk to waku blm op
at 9. 80 tbe tame night, aa he had an appoint
ment to meet a noman. He gavo the name of
Itaao Dcrrlger. All the Bowery lodclng-nousis
are being searched for a man named Dcrrlger.
All the remarks msde by the heads of the
New York Police Department aoout the failure
of the London police to discover "Jack the
Ripper " are recoiling like a boomerang.
It was Ibe day alter the murder ot the Rip
per's ninth victim, Nov. v, lSbS, that Superin
tendent Murray sild:
" I presnme that the London pollco are doing
the very beet they can, and will ultimately un
ravel the mysterr. It would not be fair to
draw any comparison betweeu onr policemen
and loose QfLopdon in the ess, becausejl
have been Informed that New York bas no lo
cality that corresponds In misery and crime
with the Whltcchspcl district. I am cotiddcnt,
though, thst no sue i ctlracs could contliiuo un

( hlef inspector lit rues wsa eiiiully as con

That tho Citct liinpector mil now Acting

when, for the first time (.loco he has been at

Tipsters' Opinions on tbo Various
Winners To-Day.
There sbonld be excellent sport at Gotten
burg to-day. The card Is one of the best ever
put together by Secretary Whitehead, and tbe
racing should bs really brilliant In several of
the events. Tbe Sportiman Handlcsp at seven
furlongs, will undoubtedly prove tbe best race
of the day. Meriden, Belwood, lumnler.
Text, Dslsyrlsn, Iluoy and others are named
to go. The race should be bot from start to
Onlab and the contending horses ought to bs
olose together.
The five furlong dash, Attn on the pro
gramme, abould tnrnlth an excellent race bs
twetn Eclipse, civil Service and Meriden, If
the latter starts In this event The other raeea
are well pnt np and ahonld be Interesting.
The first race Is a maiden affair at aeven
fnrlongs. Kentucky Ban bss been performing
so well lately that his ehanoes look very good
and he abould win. Josephine abould be
second and Wyndham rosy beat Ihe others.
The second race la a dash of five and a half
furlongs. Freedom loots to be well In, and
on the form ahown In bis last rsca he ought to
win. Then his besd stsll slipped early In tbe
race, yet he managed to finish third snd defeat
Censor, Jay Qu El, Harrisburg snd other fast
ones. Lemon should be second and Censor
may beat tbe others.
The third race Is at a mile and a furlong.
Hover's rsce yesterday waa a good one, and be
ought to win to-day. ltnshllgbt may be second
and Oloster may beat the others.
The fourth race la the Sportnnan Handicap,
at seven furlongs. Ilamtler. on the form
showed by him In the last rsce, should win.
Text u said to be In grand condition and may
be second, and Oelwood ahonld beat the
others. Ituby It very fast when right, and If
the betting Indlcatea that ahe Is receiving sup
port she will oe worth taking a onanca on.
The fifth race is at five furlongs. Tbe writer
doubts Civil Ssrvlce's ability to give Kcllpse
twelve pounds and a beating. The lattsr's per
formance ttio other day, with 151 pounds np,
running flre-cljhths in l.OA csnnot be orer
looked. Ith I welre pounds off Kcllpse should
win. Civil Bsrvice msv l seoond, and Men.
den. If she stsrts, should be tblrd.

Tho Flower Market Open Until 8
O'Clock TkiB Morning.
A Thousand People Enjoy tho Scene
During the Last Hour.
Tbe Uuton Square Flower Mart was kept open
till 8 o'i loek for the first time this morning and
lorty florists were Jubllsnt, while not lets than
onr thousand people ahowed their appreciation
of this esrly beanly show by visiting tbe mar
ket during that last honr, between 7 and S
Not all were buyers, to be sure, but there
were so many who did purchase from the
brilliant groups ot flowering plants that In every
street In no neighborhood one might meet
men, women and delighted children, proudly
bearing away prizes secured at the new
market, some of them carrying their arms
full of tbe potted beauties.
Cltlien oeorge Franela Train was there to
enliven the scene, and he waa cnthualastlo
over the new Institution.
"Why.'-ssldthe Citizen, "New York bat
been behind the sge. Tbls it a great stride In
her civilization. There were (lower marts like
this botore tbe beginning of tbe ages, even In
" Darkest Africa. " New York la behindhand,
bnt she will make np fur lost lime. "
John Thorpe, of I'earl Hirer, known as " thi
original chrysanthemum fiend," was at the
market, enthutlastio over toe new departure.
Bald he:
I For years It bat been poislble for the mar
ket florist to come to the New York rosrt only
dnrlng the months of April. May and June, for
the bnyera of the later bloomers would not go
down to that dirty place at Csntl and West
Btrc'ata. Now let ns make the mart a perma
nent thing.
" In July and August we have the asters In a
glorlnua variety of hue from purest white to the
deepest re I, coxcombs geraniums, fnschlae,
zinnias, 'youth and old aje ' and a bott of bed
ding pltnia.
Then, beginning In September, we have
the glorious chrysanthemums, and ro,000 of
them can be told right here in Union Square
every year.
'We can make Union Square a namoot
bloesoms till tbe anow files. Lot nt do IL "
At thlt point tbe old florist espied Citizen
Train, and exclaimed:
" My dearetl friend! I first met my wife at
a leotnre given by Mr. Train at Leicester, Eng
lsnd tbe best tnlng that ever happened to me.
Bnt to return to the mart. It la stlmulst
ing tne love for flowers, and In a lew weeks
the honae that hst not a llitle window garden
will be a rare thing In New York;, The old
market could never have brought that abont."
Charles Diets, tbe North Bergen florist, said:
"Bnslneaa Is bonad to be doable wbst we
conld ever hope for at the old mart. Eaoa new
morning brings a larger crowd' Of buyers.
Besides, pur quarters were to cramped down
there that It a market florist got a place, to
stand hit wsgon be had to drive to town early
In the evening before, and that made a a re Ad
folly long day of It.
II We worked an elgbtten-bonr dty, and got
a mighty scaut living at that. Now we can
come In at a deoent honr after midnight, with,
out fear of being crowded. Down there the
ladles did not dsre to venture In such esrlr
bonra of morning, street cart did not rnn till
past daylight.''
