The police and the H fountT authorities havo been doing svery thing H la their power to unravel the mystery surround- H f th murder of Bridget Hayes In the house ot B ker emploTer. L. Krerett Carpenter, at Balm- U T(, suburb of Newburg, on Wednesday HJ n jht. The; ore exactly where they were when H they started. Ther know now that the woman H wn murdered, though there were times yester- HH j,, when they were half Inclined to think that BJ ,he had committed suicide. Ther know how the (u murdered, and that's all that ther do know. H j-ot one particle ot evidence did the murderer H jelTe behind that would lead to his detection. HB rfi,, rel motive for the crime la a mystery. It H i, almost certain that the assault was an after thought. It Is almost certain, too, that the murderer was not only acquainted with the H woman, but was acquainted with the house fl -there the murder was done as well. J BalmTtUe Is the home of wealthy persons el- Jl most exclusively. It overlooks the Hudson bH Klter and is one of the most beautiful towns on Jj th west side ot the rlTer. While it is not with- fl in the cltr limits of Newburg, It Is generally M counted a part ot the cltr, because the people Jj to lira there are all Newburg people. The town gets its name from a huge Balm of Oilead HH trf. with a trunk more than sis feet thick, that stands In a squaront the crossroads. Be- H cause it ts not in the cltr limits It has no police I protection. Hut few crimes hare been commit- HI there and there has never been anr demand HH ori police force in consequence. Tho home of I. Krerett Carpenter, where Bridget Hayes was murdered and assaulted, is J the second house across the hill from Newburg. H Dr. V celey Walt's housu Is the first. The Carpenter house is a threc-etorr brick and is one ot the handsomest houses in the neighborhood outeido the magnificent man- sons that nro built along the bluff just over BJ the river. It is about 300 yards from tho trailer line which connects tho village and Newburg. Bh It Isle's than f. rty feet from Dr. Wait's house. flB Next to it. on the othor aide, about the same BJ distance away. Is the residence ot George BB Jieyers, the head ot the Washington Baking anaH pnwrfer ComnanT. Back ot It. hardly seventy- BJ lire feet away, is still another house. It Is oo- BB copied by a florist. BJ The whole village la built on a slope, so that this house In the rear of the Carpenter house Is BH conslders-My higher, and from the windows on BB tie first floor one can see Into the windows ot fll tie toD floor ot the Carpenter house. Along the BB road on which the Carpenter house fronts BB there are electric lights, which are kept Bh lighted all night, and at no time is it dark or BH lonesome in tho neighborhood. The fact that a, B murder such as this one could hare been com- BB mitted in a house so surrounded by other houses BB that were occupied has frightened the peoole, HH particularly the women folks, half to death. Bridget Hayes, as The Sun stated yesterday, HHj vent to the Carpenter house, where she was HH employed, at ti o'clock in the morning on Wed- HH nesday. The neighbors say that they saw her HH there soon after that hour: that during the HH morning and the early part of the afternoon she HJ s out in the yard no lets than halt a dozen HH times hanging ud clothes which she had been HH ashing. To reach the yard she went HH out ot the back door, which, when she HH was found murdered, was closed and HH locked and barred with a heavy wooden bar HH that stretched clear across the door from case to HH case. Later in the afternoon these neighbors HH say they saw the woman washing windows on HH the first and second floors of the house. Ther HH remember this distinctly, because the house had HH een vacant for two months, the Carpenter HH fsiully being away for the summer, and tney H remarked to themselves that Mrs. Carpenter HH oust be coming home or the girl wouldn't be Hi cleaning the windows. HH The last time anybody saw the woman allvo HH1 was somewhere in the nelghborboodof4o'elock. HH e WRS then still cleaning the windows. About HJ ts hour later some members of the Carpenter H family, who bad returned to town, but who are temporarily stopping; with friends until the rest HH t lhe family get back, passed the house to go to H th trolley .line. Tho cars run, Infrequently, HH a-v. as there was none In sight, ther walked H but. went Into the yard and sat on the front HH steep of the house. Ther did not try the doors. HH They did not suppose anybody was in the house. HH Nobody was in sight while they were there, and HH they were there about fifteen minutes. Cer- HH talnly If Bridget Uayes had seen them she HH would have spoken to them, and the last seen of HH k"' u,t "ttle while before that, she was H waihing the windows in the front. HH There was no sign of life about the house after H these members of the Carpenter family went H sway until 10 o'clock at night, as far as The H Be reporter could learn yesterday. At 10 HH s'clock tho domestic employed in Mr. Meyer's H family, accompanied oy another girl em- HH ployed In the neighborhood, passed the house H m lhelr mJ home from Kewburg, where H ther had spent the evening. These girls H both say that they saw a light in the room on H the top floor, where, later, it was found that HH Bridget Hayes had been murdered. Tbey are H certain about tho light, because ther remarked that they guessed Mrs. Carpenter must have got HI hack, for Bridget Hayes never would star in H ths house alone at night, and that room was Bridget Hayes's room. Nooody else baa been found who saw the light, and nobody has been M found who passed the house after the hour pete girls went by. The folks in Dr. Walt's boa'4 and In Mr. Meyer's house and Mr. Carter's house were all of them awake until between half past 10 and 11 o'clock, and they Jl heard no unusual noises and nothing to HJ vtract their attention to the Carpenter saV house. Yet it is almost certain that soma HI Sme daring the evening, beforo 11 o'clock, Hsl prllget Hayes was attacked, and after some HH. Uttle struggle waa assaulted and killed, and, HJH ss stated before, it la almost certain the assault was not the only motive for the crime. HH. condition of things in the house when the HH woman s body was found on Thursday indicated fll i"1 the greatest deliberation. HI Bridget Hayes didn't go to the house of her Hsl riend.wberehe had been living, for lunch on MB Wednesday, bhe hod bad nothing to eat since MB corning. She had been working all day, and HH ue family was expected home the next day. MB There was a great deal of work to be done, and U is more than likely that she found it neces- H 51 t0 8ta at the house until after ,:t ! complete it. When she was H work she wore working clothes, having BB cjangedher clothing when she went there In BH the morning. It is altogether likely that sho ' HI , ala changing her clothing in the H li ?"

Perhaps it was then that he picked up the hand glass from tho dresser and looked at himself, to sco If he was palo or showed evidences ot the fright that he felt after the deed. There were blood stains on the back and front of the glass and on both sides of IL He set to work to clean tho carpet. Ho found he could not do It, and he gave up trying. Of course with this evidence of tho crime In the room, disposing of the body would bo use less. He wanted no one to know that a murder had been committed, and here the marks wero indelible. There was ono course left for him, that was to make It appear that the woman had committed suicide. There is evidence ot the fact that he did trr to make It so appear, for tho bo ty was lying In the bathroom in such a position that, without other evidence, any one who looked at it would say that she had gone In there herself alone, hod fallen on tho ilbnj, and no ono had been In tho room afterward until the men who found her went In. The door opened inward. Shewns lying so that sho blocked tho door. Iter head was against it. It could not bo opened without pushing her aside. If the wo man was dead when Uken to tho bathroom tho body could only have got into that position by carefully placing It against the door, so that when the door closed It would slip down and block It. As a further evidence ot suicide, the murderer placed n box ot rat poison on the bed in the room. Ho meant to make It appear that sho had taken poison, that it had not killed her quick enuugu, that she had then cut her throat and walked downstairs to tho b.ithroom, where she had fallen. Unfortunately for him, how over, the erldence ot his crimo could not be offaced. That evidenco tho doctors discovered when they made the autopsy. If the murderer knew the woman, what could haro been his motive in killing hert Sho was 08 rears old. Assault was not the motive. Sho had no enemies as far ns is known, so that re venge could not be a motive. She cared nothing for men, and had no mnlo friends to speak ot. Sho had no one paying attention to her; so jeslously could not have been tho motive. '1 here remains but one other; that is robbery. She hud worked all her life; she hud spent little money, nnd she must have hail money. The murderer must have been a man who knew that sho had uioney. for no man would murder n woman In her position in life to rub her unless he knew that she had money to mitko it an ob ject for htm to kill her. Sho vtn a woinun who kept her business to herself, so the circle of persons who knew that she had money must certainly bo very limited. It Is known that she had two bank accounts. One vtus in Brooklyn and ono in Newburg. The Newburg account is a small one. She drew her money from the Brooklyn bank. It Is said, soma tlino agu. Tho man who murdered her must have known that sho drew It, and tho circle of men who would have thnt Information must certainly bo extr mely limited. One erldence that the robbery was the motive Is the fact that her bank boot on the Newburg bunk Is missing. Where she kept the book nobody knows, but she must hare kept it cither at the Carpenter house or at Mrs. Mapicton's. It was not at Mrs. Stapleton's, nnd the Carpen ter house was searched yesterday from iod to bottom without bringing It to light. It wus kuuuKUb tuni t.c, turn -oh.u uitu urcu siutcu but this was found yesterday In a little box In the bottom ot her trunk In the room in which she was murdered. The trunk contained other things, keepsakes and the like, and it is lust the place where she would have kept her bank book, but the book wasn't there. It is possible that this book may lead to the dlscorerr of her murderer. The persons who would be most likely to hear that Bridget Hayes bad money, and most likely to hear that she bad drawn money from the bank, would bo persons Hrinir in tho neigh borhood of Mrs. Stwpleton. Mrs. Stapleton lives in North Water street. North Water street contains a good many pretty tough people. A nephew ot Mist Hayes once lived in that neighborhood. This nephew was arrested once accused of murderldg a man, but he wasn't in dicted, lie lives in Newburg still, or. at least, was there early in the summer. The reporter didn't get any trace of him yesfrdny. As bus been pointed out. the murderer must have known something about the Carpenter house, as well as about Bridget Hayes's money. He found tho knife with which he killed her in a drawer in n sideboard. Ha armed himself with that knife beforo he went upstairs to her room. If he had been an ordi nary thief he wonld have taken a large quan tity of solid silverware that was In nnd on the sideboard where this knife was kept. Not a piece Is missing nor was a piece tound dis turbed. It the man was an acquaintance of Mrs. Hares thatmigbt explain how be got into the bouse, for every door and window was locked and barre.L He must have gotten into the house through the front door. Lnless he went In the houso in the daytime and concealed himself there he must have been admitted by the woman. Tho door has a spring Io k. It closes itself and tho lock snaps, unlcssacatch that holds it Is sprung. If be was an acquaintance, perhaps he stopped. 5avo her some excuse for stopping, said ns It was ark he would take ber home or something of that kind, and she asked him to wait until she had changed her dress. He secured the knife, followed her upstairs, nntt there killed her. The police to-day will begin to make a thorough investigation to ascertain who knew Bridget Hayes well enough to know that she had some money. Bridget Hayes's body will be burled to-morrow. ZUXTGKIiT PROSECUTIOX JSyBlXO. Resume er the Testimony Hade by the state's tvilneeeee. CniCAOO. Sept. 17. There was a sort of cleaning up by the State in the Luctgert w if o murder trial to-day. All the witnesses for the prosecution, so for as Is known, have been heard and tho expert testimony Is all in. It onlr remained, according to tho belief of tho State Attorney and his assistants to connect the material erldence Introduced with the crime of which Adolpn I.uetgcrt Is accused. With this end In view the experts were re called: to testify bow and from whom they re ceived the bones, linger rings, and other arti cles subjected by them to microscopical or other expert examination; police ohicers told of the places in which these bits of evidenco wero found, how they wero found, and whot wai done with them after they were found. In this manner, tho State's lawyers say. tho neces srry corpus delicti has been established, and they think a conviction of murder in tho Urst degree should follow. All of the witnesses beard to-day had testified before. The defence will probablr begin on Monday. One of the theories on which Luetgert s coun sel will work Is that a police conspiracy exists, the purpo&e of which is to convict the prisoner. It is said that If Luctgcrt's lawyers fall to weaken the testimony thai the bones found are human, tbey will make a charge that emis saries of the police disintegrated tho skeleton of a small woman In caustic potanh and then filaced rings and fragments of bone and flesh n the vat nnd bones in the ashes under the boiler, to throw suspicion upon tho prisoner. Many witnesses, it is said, will testl'y that the rings in evidence aro not Mrs. I.uetgcrt's, and it will also bo shown that the missing wo man waa of a strongly Jealous disposition, dissatisfied with her lot, and that she had fre quently threatened to leave home, and on one occasion remained away several days. KILLED JIT .4 TAJID ESOIXE. Tanner Uavnrhrrr or Newark Paid If Heed to at Warning Wlilitle. Daniel Kaufherr, a manufacturer of fancy leather, and who operated a big tannery In Oar den street, Newark, was killed by a drill engine at the Centre street station of tho Pennsylvania Railroad In that city yesterdar morning while hurrying to catch a train to this city. Ho stepped In front of the yard ergino Just after an express train whizzed by, and he paid no heed to tho whistle which tho engineer of thodrlllcn clno blew. The englno struck him down, and be was dragged UOO feet. His skull was frac tured and both legs wore broken. Death ensued In fifteen minutes. Mr. Kaufherr was horn in Fuldn. Bavaria, In 1835, and cume to this country when IB years old. He was rated as a wealthy man. While he tanned ox hides and did u general business, he made a specialty of fancy leathers, and boasted that bet ould deliver at the shortest notice the tanned skin of almost any mammal from nn ele phant ton mouse, and the skins of many rep tiles nnd fishes. A large part of the regular business of the tnnnery is the preparation of alligator and crocodile skins. Mr. Kaufherr leaves a widow, thrco sons and ono daughter.

Mrs. Emma Crow, wlfo of a builder living at 427 East l--d street, took her fox terrier, Pearl, to the foot of East liiiid street yesterday for a bath. She sent it Into the water with a long bit of twine fastened to its collar to proveut It swimming too far away. Tho dog started to swim out to a buoy belonging to the Harlem Yacht Club. A rowboat wus fastened to the buoy by h pointer, and tho dog tangled tho bit of twine about tho pulnter und could not free Itself. The dog finally began to tire in Its strug gles to keep ulioat atid yelped for aid. Its mistress did not hesitate to wade In after It. Before she was aware of danger she renched the channel and stepped off beyond her depth. Bhe could not swim, and might have drowned if Policemen Helfiich and McQuade hart not gone to ber rescue. They plunged In and brought her ashore. Then Policeman Hcltrlch rescued the dog. Yellow 'ever Itoes Work on Mobile Harbor Inproienicnls.

Nkw OraEAjjB, Sept. 17,-Tho quarantine sit uation, which has been causing so much trouble In the Southwest over the yellow fever, shows an Improvement to-dar, duo partlallr to the fact that the mnny quarantines now In force) have aroused popular Indignation and protest. The greatest troublo has been the small boards of health which haro sprung up orer tho South west In the past few days, which are without legal authority, but are operating on the Judge Lynch basts that might gives right. Be tween 1,000 and 1,'JOO such boards have recent ly sprung up, most of them Incompetent to pass on quarantine or sanitary matters, and wholly without legal nutborlty, being elected by mass meetings. In somo cases they are whollr self constituted guardians of the publlo health. These boards seem to vie with each other In the radical and absurd character of their quar antines, and the smaller the board the moro power It has usurped. A score of towns has quarantined against tho msils, and no New Orleans or Mobile newspapers are allowed to enter Mississippi or Alabama. This shutting out of the mnll and particularly the newspapers has had a most unfortunate ef fect In increasing tho panic. The people aro left without the nows of the world, and aro a prey to rumors and exaggerations. The height of tho folly was reached In Mis sissippi, where provisions from Now Orleans for Ocean Springs and other Infected towns wore shut out by quarantine, tho people being well nigh reduced to starvation. In many places dis infectants Intended for sanitary purposes wero declared contraband. lu Louisiana as well as in Mississippi Iron ware was shut out. The farmers have been put to considerable Inconvenience by having agri cultural Implements and machinery kept back. In Now Orleans the Fifteenth ward at a mnss meeting yesterday uctuallr attemptod to quar antine against the other sixteen wards of tho city ; but this was going a little further than the people were prepared to stand, and this quaran tine was promptly nullified, Tho quarantines have not been confined to Infected or suspected places, and local spite and prejudice has plajed a large part in many of them.

The result of tho quarantine panic has been to compel a dozen railroads to suspend operations, thus stopping the malls, shutting out tho newspapers from n gront part of tho Southwest, anil para lyzing business. Schools and colleges have been closed in many places, and In some places the churches have been prohibited from opening. Moss meetings have beeu prevented and a curfow law entorced. and flnallr liberty of free speech has been Invaded In Mobile and other towns. In these places it is a misdemeanor, subject to fine and imprisonment, to mention any rumor of a suspicious case, except those re ported by tho Board of Health. Tbero is a marke I Improvement to-day. A number of ex cellent modifications were made. Tho quarantine against drugs and disinfect ants was everywhere removed, and most of tho tonus withdrew their quarantine against Iron ware and agricultural implements. Alabama, on the protest of the New Orleans Sanltnry and Commercial Association, withdrew Its quaran tine against Pullman cars passing through the State. Mississippi withdrew Its quarantine against food stuns and provisions for towns In need of them. Most of the towns abolished their quarantine against the mall, and now admit letters, and even new-papers, that nave been disinfected. Many of the Louisiana towns admitted all kinds of goods that are properly disinfected and certi fied to as safo by the United States Marina Hospital service. On the other hand. Shrereport has stopped nearly all trains running through that town. Meridian. Miss., yesterday Slopped the Ala bama and Vlcksburg llatlroad from Vlcksburg nnd prohibited nny ot the trains entering the town. This shuts off all central Mississippi from the north. The Mississippi State Board of Health Is try ing to brlmr Meridian to Its senses. At Little Itock and Hot Springs. Ark., all people register ing from New Orleans bare been compelled to leave town In spite of their protests. Gov. MeUiurln of Mississippi, who has been out of Jackson, had to apply to the quarantine authorities for permission to enter the capital nnd resume his duties. Scranton, Miss., has ap pealed for nid. The Louisiana Board of Health reports nlno new cases of yellow fever to-lay in New Orleans nnuoneucstii. .iiODiie reports two new cases or fever, three suspects, and one death. Ocean Springs reports three new cases. Edwards re ports fifteen coses of ferer. The nine cases reported In New Orleans to-dnv wero very widely scattered, and there are now sixteen localities In which the disease is prevailing. POJTEZT. REWARD DISTRIBUTED.

Wcyler by the extrnordlnnrr nctlvltr of tho insurgent army In tho six prov inces of tho Island to abandon tho Inland of Puerto Pilnclpo and Santiago do Cuba to tho revolutionists and conccntrnto tho Spanish forcosnttho seaports, where ther can bo sup ported by the Spanish navy. Tho Important military station of Purnlo, in Snutingo do Cuba province, has been abandoned by the Spanish troops. Tho Spanish residents of Jlgunnl, llajamo, and Holquln.ln tho samo prov ince, nre greatly alarmed by tho prospect of being left to tho mercy of tho Insurgents. In splto of tho orders ho has received from Mad rid, not to abandon Ilnynmo, tho Captaln-llcn-cral has replied to tho Spanish merchants ot that town that the most ho can promise them Is to do his boat without guaranteeing any thing. Tho convoy that provides Ilnynmo wllh food from Manzanllln twlco a mouth passes between tho towns of Pernlcjos and llarrancos, which nro held by tho Cuban forces of Octi. Knbl, who has strongly fortltlod tho route. Tho 10,000 soldiers that Col. Vara dol Hey deemed ncccis.ary a fow weeks ngo to escort safely with a Spanish convoy to Ilnynmo would not now bo enouuli, 15,000 or '.'0,000 being needed at pres ent. Kven tills forte requires twelve days fur tho trip and Is often cxhmistoil by lighting. Ono of the last escorts lost 500 men. A Cuban writes from Ilnynmo describing the arrival of ono of thero convoys: "It ts 11 wonder how those poor Spanish sol diers cm endure so mnny hardships. Those who are born in Spain and nro not inured to tho cllmulo get hero in a miserable Mnlo of sick ness. Seldom Is one of them ablo tn make this trip twice. Tho burning heut of custom Cuba nnd the hardship of a inarch without halt from Mun7anlllo, with tiring erery hutf hour to answer tho volleys of tho Insurgents, nro enough to ruin the health of the strongest man from liurope. Tho soldlrs have several times protested against the duty Imposed un them.con tending thnt their own lives wero as worthy of consideration as thoso of the Inhabitants of llayamo. Hut after nil, when the order to start Is given them, they tako their places In tho herd with that admirable endurance which makes so remarkable tho unpaid, Ill-fed, and yet blindly loyal Spanish soldier. "A fow days ago a poor private from Gallcta, only IS yoars old. arrived with the Spanish column, and on catering the streets ot llayamo fell senseless to tho ground. He was carried to the little dirty military hospital of tho tor.ii nnd tho next day he died, nfter a tudden at tack of madness. In which, holding n bayonet, iio ran amuck, killing two guards. I asked the surgeon, a sensible Spaniard, what tho sol dier really died of. nnd he answered: "From the crimo which Spain commits in sncrillclng tho best of her youth In this devastating war.' " Hut the crimo cannot bo committed much longer, because the lU,000 soldiers required to maintain tno Spanish tasltlons In tlie cast aro needed by Weyler In tho west. "I ho;vc," said tho Cnptain-fJcneral to tho representatives from Jlguanl, llayamo, and Holguln, "that you will help tho short garrisons 1 will leave there to hold the forts against the ecmy without ex pecting reinforcements. Tho tlmo has arrived in nhtch Spain needs nil hcrbons, soldiers, nnd civilians alike. I will try to tend the convoys, but I will attempt only what ts possible in the circumstances."

The Speaker will publish to-morrow an article dealing with the United Stales and Cuba, In the concluding portion ot which it aajs: " We must not forget that America has per fectly legitimate business Interests in Cuba, Tbe United States Government can And excel lent reasons to Intervene whenever It likes. It cannot stop the supply of arms and men to the Insurgents except by an elaborate policing of a dllllcult coast, which publlo opinion would not stand. " Tho policy of the Insurgents has been to drain tbe Spanish resources. They have been suc cessful. The Spanish defeat at Victoria de las Tunas gives Spain n shock which, it Is hoped, will check her drift toward bankruptcy and civil war. Her first step Is to recall Oen. Wey ler, n step which tho Irrepressible criticisms of his fellow Generals ought to facilitate. The next step Is to arrange terms with the insur gents, perhaps with the aid of the United States. Otherwise Spain may hnvo greater dangers to face utter tho meeting of Congress In December, and certainly sho will bo less able to face them." REVERTER EXC03I3IUXICATED.

The report received from the Halearlc Isles yesterday that the Bishop of Polma had menaced Seflor J.

Tho fab net will discuss the matter to-day, and it is the intention ot the Ministry to appeal to tho Pope against the Bishop's action. Tho Government is especially annoyed by tbe action of the Bishop ot Palma in view ot the re cent disposition displayed by the Bishops nnd clergy to embarrass tho Government and co quette with tho Carlisle.
