! & They trlcl to render tho woman uneomeloui by
; m. menus of ether, and when she struggled they at-
. Br, tacked her with n knlfo. The fact that a knotted
ftf piece of clothes line about Ave fcot long was
t j ' found In tho pockot of one of them led to the
W supposition that perhaps they had something to
JF do with recent murders of dissolute women,
S' . $; most of which wero accomplished by strangling,
6 ' JS Although thcro is little to support the theory
jfr B that Weiss and FlUslmmons havo been Impll-
J- ft" rated In murders, tho confosslon of one of them
L , f reveals a startling depth of depravity, Fitxslnv
$ mons told the detectives that Weiss and he had
1 planned to rob women of tho town by means of
j? L ether or chloroform. Weiss, who is tho older

' ' m trato's story. ', .
?' i g Fannto Vogcl occnplos n, rear room on the
ra jj. ground floor of an Allen street tenement. Weiss
. I and Fltrslmmons called upon hor at midnight.
r. J They say that sho accosted them from the stoop
', f of her house Suddenly tho wholo tenement was
f ? nrrouscd by an uproar in tho woman's room.
2 Whllo Abraham Goldberg, who lives In the
Y neighborhood, was standing near tho tenement
i. ?" entrnnco Weiss and Fitzslmmons rushed out.
y ; f Ooldberg grabbed Weiss, who had an open
; l knlfo In his hand, but Weiss broke away and
J ,ij ran toward Hester strcot. Detectives Monahan
. ' i and McGownn of tho Eldridgo strcot station,
t ? who bad been Btanding on tho corner, hoard tho
i , outcry and started after Weiss, catching him on
". I J the next block. Fltzslmmons got away.
Jy ,, f. Meantime tho sixteen families who live in
A tho tenement had becotao panic-stricken, and
,; I,i rushodout to tho strcot in various styles of un
g ' tlress, yelling "Flrol" and "Murdert" The
! ' wholo block was In an uproar for an hour. Tho
y $ pollco took tho Vogel woman to tho station
' X houso to uiako a complaint, and somo ono lm-
2 proved tho opportunity to ransack her room and
M. Bteal her cheap Jowelrynnd $30 that she had
2 hidden away.
' S- At tho station houso tho woman said that sho
' ), had never seen Woiss or Fltzslromons until they
55 .J tV rntercd her room. Whilo Bho was talking to
S.v "x & FlUslmmons, sho Baid, Weiss crept np nnd
r t : pressed a wet handkerchief to her face. Sho
Sfc ; struggled to tear It nway, and Fltzsimmons tried
S ! f- to hold her arms. She screamed and fought so
if ' 'i hard that they let her go and started to run out.
fc I i Then, sho Bays, she tried to bold Weiss, and he
V, 1 struck and kicked her and stabbed her with a
, knife. There were bruises on the woman's body
f, I ; and she was cut in hnlf a dozen places. No
IB t n wound, howevor, was serious.
it ; & Tho pollco searched Welsa and found on him a
i'f a big knlfo with fresh blood stains on It, a whlskoy
I, flask half full of ether and the rope, it was this
R' f Inst that caused them to open their eyes and to
(L- III S. Indulge in tho theory that perhaps they had tho
(? UTt man who bad been strangling women. In his
S i root pocket were found letters addressed to
ji It Jnmes Fltz8lmmons,T3 liowcry. Tho prisoner had
S' I f'' said that his name was Weiss. It then dovel-
ij '& oped thnt they had accidentally exchanged coats
' r u In their hurry to lcavo tho w Oman's room. To
f- i -f this fact is duo Fitzslmmons's capture. Oeteo-
h ' ( tlve Cohen went to 73 Ilowcrr, a lodging house,
. 1 ' ft and found the youth in bed. lie took him to the
S 1 ;V: police station.
t S Thcro Fltzsimmons said that he had known
g '5 $. . Weiss for somo time. Thoy wero together in
ff t Lawrence, Mass., where they wero each sen-
-: J jjfc fenced to throe months' imprisonment in tho
:"' ji p House of Correction for defrauding a boarding-
I bouso keeper. After serving their term thoy
ft !( camo to this city, and Weiss proposed to Fitz-
.; I a Simmons, so tho latter Bald, a scheme whoreby
it? a y they could rob dissolute women. Tho ether was
K I X to render tho women unconscious, and tho ropo
ii w as to bind them in coso they recovered con-
& 1 ',-' sclousness too soon. He said It wasn't so much
f& S J plunder they wanted as to cheat the women.
Jf 1 j 1 Weiss denied tho wholo Btory. He said that ho
i & hod bought the ether for toothache, but offered
4 2 no explanation for his possession of the ropo.
i The prisoners wero taken to Police Ilondquar-
S X, e tcrs, where their descriptions were addod to the
-fl, 3 , Itogucs' Gallery. When they wero arraigned In
M'i ' ,nB EflSex Market Police Court they waived ex-
Vm.i Y amlnatlon and wero committed for trial.
1m S 3'ax Zcllner, tho Iiowery druggist who sold
m'A r tho ether to Wcl&s, was summoned to tho pollco
&wA A court. Ho admitted tho sale, but asserted that
' Jj K ho had violated no law in Belling It without
J :, 1?' registering tho buyer's name. Magistrate Went-
ff fit worth dlHcliarged him.
41J j Jacob Tolker. who was arrested after n chase
A'S'-' J' 'n Central Park on Tuesday on tho complaint of
Wt Paulino Harriott, a woman of the tovin, who said
'w& h ho luul choked hor ana robbed her of diamonds

I X s, Nor. 10, mado what Capt. O'Brien called a
a A Oh " confession " yesterday and admitted that ho
k 5 3- hod calleil on the woman, but denied tho rob
?, s flL bery. Not Batisllcd with this "confession,"
6 S, s Capt. O'llrlen tried to implicate him In the niur
U i Ji der of Annlo Bock, a w oman of tho town, who
Si 's was found dead on the morning of Aug.
, S 4 last year. Ab she had evidently bocn
3 A ff choked ODricn concluded that Tolkor might
S 'S t have choked her, as ho did tho Barnett woman,
g fi W so ho corrnllod Bomo of her woman friends to
? A S identify him an the man who had been seen with
J SS her in East Fourteenth street not long beforo
a jp St Bhe went home. Two of them thought he wna
i g T. tho man, but weren't Biire. O'Brien will. If he
3Srai uui, get other friends of the murdered woman
; Is who saw her In Fourteenth street with a man,
' fl in tho hono of proving Tolker her murderer.
' J? f The ordeal to which Tolker was subjected ap
' fi parently caused him to make his " confession."

DELIVERED A DEAD rillSOITEIt.
Deputy RhrriiT Handera Obeyed the Commit
ment Literally and Brought In a Body.
Baltimohe, Md May 13. For the first time
in the history of tho Maryland penitentiary a
dead man has been delivered to tho prison, en
tered on tho books as n convict, with his name,
ago, description of crime and torm of sentence,
and then sont to the morgue. The dead convict
was John A. Color, who killed himself by jump
ing from a moving train on Tuesday.
A commitment to any prison directs the
Warden or officer in chargo to "recelvo tho
body." It is supposed to mean tho llvo body,
but it does not say so. Deputy Sheriff Sanders,
who brought Calor to Baltimore, therefore de
cided to obey tho instructions of the court nnd de
livered his body at theprleon last night. Warden
Weylor gave him n receipt for "tbe dead body
of a man supposed to be John A.Calcr." The
body will be burled at the city's expense.

The reactionary tendency of tho stock market
was accentuated to-day by advices from Wash
lngton indicating a more serious phnso of tho
general situation in Cuba in ho fur ns this coun
try moybocomo involved. Tho ndicosin this
respoct wero not rcccivod until tho afternoon,
but upon their general dissemination tho mar
ket sold off rapidly and rallied very feebly at
theclose. Thcro was practically no other Influ
ence In the day's market, for with tho correction
of the extravagant estimates as to tho shipments
of gold on Saturday tho bear room traders wero
left without much speculative ammunition,
which probably accounts for tho avidity with
which thoy seized upon tbo revival of tho Cuban
question. Gold to tho amount of $1,000,000
was engnged for export on Saturdny, and at
loust as much In addition Is expected to bo taken
to-morrow, but tho actual shipments will still
fall far below tho general Stock Exchange
estimates of the week. At tho opening of busi
ness tho tone of tho market wns fairly steady
on a renowal of purchases for foreign account,
and tho general London markot was roported
Arm, a reduction in tho discount rate
of tho Dank of Kngland to 2 V cent,
indicating tho final disappearanco of any
dlsquietudo In regard to tho Kuropcan po
litical situation. Beyond tho publication of n
few interesting statements of railway earnings
thoday was bare of nous or of nny additions to
tho situation, oxcept for the revival of tho Cu
ban question ns a Btock market factor, Tho
transactions wero upon a somewhat larger scale
than on yestordny nnd wore rntber better dis
tributed. Sugar Refining rontinuod In tho lead
of tho market, and, together with United States
Leather preferred, suffered tho greatest net loss
of the active stocks. Western Union and Man
hattan wero comporntivoly steady, tho firmness
of tho last nnmod being refcrnblo to tho good
stntcment of comings for tho llrat qunrtcr of tho
year.

onlr to reiterate what we have so frequently written
of late. Tne petition of wheat to us seems strong,
and we feel that It warrants higher prices before
another crop. Corn and oats were up to-day, partly
In sympathy with wheat, bnt largely on amount of
continued light receipts, and. In the case or oats, on
account of an active shipping demand. Crop condi
tions are all right, but light arrivals make shorts un

The cotton market to-day waa absolutely featureless.
Tho trading, what ther was of it, was conOned to lo
cal scaliers, and tho fluctuation. In prloos were few
and unimportant. Llrcrixjl waa dull and Irregular
and the Aveather llurcau reported good general rains
in the cotton belt, but there waa a good demand here
for spot cotton, which had a sustaining effect upon
futures. Tho receipts were light and the Southern
.pot markets, though qub t, wero nrm. A despatch
from southeastern Texas said tbst the outlook
for the crop in that Htato was tho liest
in fifteen years. Alwrtleen, May 8. "Slnco our
last report the weather has been dry, but
temperature below the normal. Fair progress has
Wrn made sowing seed, but the soil has beeu so cool
that germination has b-en very Imperfect. In many
Itxalltlrs tbe ool north wind has killed the young
planta In tho bud; In other cases seed has rotted In
the ground. In some sections cut worms have done
great damage. Tho stand of cotton Is the poorest In
many years and much replanting Is In progress.
w arm, seasonable weather is needed, which would
destroy the cut worm. The crop hail a late start, and
has been further retarded on account of Imperfect
germination." Mobile, Ala., Jlay 11. "Season la tbe
most backward for years. Stands are poor; in fact.
Is difficult In a great many places to obtain stand yet.
A large percentage Is not yet up. Cool nights and
north winds killed out a great deal of cotton and
