REVOLVER HELD TO HIS HEAD
The Pastor of Calvary Baptist Church and
His Family Were at Divine Eervics
Wbea the Attempt Wai Hade Their
Work Was Done Boldly and Expedi
tiously Hissed a Large Sum of Honey.
Another Sanday evening robbery was
committed last night, two unknown white
men entering tbe bouse of Rev. S. H.
Greonc, No. 1322 Q street northwesti while
tbe family was at church, and nltliough the
plunder dW not exceed ?5, tbe boldness
of tbe attempt places it on a par witb any
As in tbe case of Rev. Dr. Butler a few
weeks ago, Dr. Greene and tbe entire
family werea t church and tbe servant away.
The robbers, after trying vainly to get in
through the front window, forced open the
baseaent door, and proceeded to make a
systematic search of tbe premises.
Mr. J. M. Buzzfll, Dr. Greene's brother-in-law,
returned borne before the rest of
tbe party, and upon entering tbe bouse
beard some one moving around on the sec
ond floor, bat supposing that it was Dr.
Greene's eon and a friend, paid no attention
to tbe noise.
SAW THEY WERE STRANGERS.
He moved around down stairs for a few
minutes, when he beard some one coming
down tbe steps, and turning to look saw
that they were strangers.
He started towards them to ask them
what tbey -wauted, but the men bad reached
tbe first floor, and one of them drawing a
revolver covered Mr. Buzzill witb it,
backing slowly out of tbe front door, while
tbe otlier one ran down tbe steps and out
into the street.
As soon as the one with the revolver got
outside both men took to their heels,
running down Kingman place, which
opens on Q street a few doorb from Mr.
Mr. Buzzill's cries for the police soon
drew a large crowd, and several started in
pursuit, but the men had too much of a
start, and soon disappeared. A couple of
policemen from tbe Eighth precinct came
np a few minutes after the men got away,
and upon investigating the affair, arrived
at tbe conclusion that they were the same
men wlio robbed Dr. Butler's residence
several Sundays ago.
MISSED A LARGE SUM.
Mr. Buzzfll said that the men wore white
and were rathor young looking, loth about
medium h eighth. He could give no better
description of thorn and does not think he
could identify them, as the affair took place
in so short a time.
Dr. Greene says that there hapiiencd to
be a large sum of monoy ami n quantity of
valuables in the bouse, which, fortunately,
tbe ttivQS did not get track of. They had,
evidently, been iu the house only a short

According to the story of James Martin,
an Anaootlia boy who witnessed the acci

Murder of a Woman -That Re
calls Jack the Ripper.
BLEEDING IN A HALLWAY
Post-mortem Examination Disclosed the
Shocking Fact that the Poor Creature
Had Been Inhumanly Beaten and
Stamped Upon and Internally Mutilated
Hemorrhase Waa the Cause of Her Beath.
-"New York, April 21. A murder was
brought to light in Bellevue Hospital this
a f tenioon, which is suggestive in some
of its details or the White Chapel crimes
in London, that made "Jack, the Ripper"
notorious. The victim is a woman of the
lowest class. Her name was Alice Walsh
and she was welL known in the resorts in
the neighborhoodofBIeecker and Thompson
When the autopsy was performed upon
her body, it was discovered that certain
mutilations had been made which dis
tinguished the White Chapel murders,
although not of so serious a character.
Up to a late hour the murderer had not been
arrested, but one man who is thought to
bave some kuowledge of the matter was
held ou suspicion.
The circumstances of the killing of Alice
Walsh are peculiar in almost every aspect.
About 5 o'clock this morning a woman was
found in the hallway of No. 1-13 Thompson
6treet half unconscious and bleeding.
The woman was conveyed to St. Vin
cent's Hospital and inquiries instituted
at the tenement. No one who was there
knew the name of the woman, butthe night
clerk ot a restaurant readily identified
ber as Alice Walsh.
NEVER REGAINED CONSCIOUSNESS.
Every effort of the physicians to stop
the blood proved futile, and the patient
expired at 11:15 o'clock, having been in
tho institution less than four hours. During
that period she showed no signs of returning
consciousness, and diqd without indicating
in any way how she met with the circum
stances which resulted In her death.
In the course of the afternoon Dr. Phillip
O. llanlon, coroner's physician, made a
tiosjt-mortem examination of the body and
discovered the real cause of death. He
found that the woman was bruised and
black and blue iu almost every part of
He found also that she had been bru
tnlly mutilated with a knife or dagger, and
thnt the wounds thus resulting had started
the hemorrhage which bad terminated
After much searching about the neigh
borhood the police found that the woman,
iu company with a tall, broad-shouldered
man, who looked like an Italian, a wo
man, known as "Girnpy" Amanda, a girl
called "Teenic," and another man, had
spent a portion of the early morning hours

they went during tho Intervening two hours

It is surmised that the man who killed

pany sho was in Garlavd's saloon.
A womau iu Bellevue Hospital, who had
met her whilo serving a term on the island,
said that she had been living with a man
named Terence Collins, who, a short time
ago, was sent to the Elmira Reformatory.
After hor lover had been sent away, Alico
took up with an Italian, or a Spaniard, so
the woman said.
