A London special to the Times says : The White Chapel murder mystery transcends anything known in the annals of hor rible crime. It is "Poe's Murder of Rue Morgue," and the mystery of "Marie Rogel" rolled into one story. It '. is nothing less than a midnight murderer whose step is noiseless, whose strike is so deadly and whose cunning is so great that he leaves no trace whatever of his work and no clew to his identity. When the mur der of Mary Ann Nopelis, who was cut into ribbons last Friday night, was investigated, it became evident that the murder was the work of some hand that committed the two preced ing ones'. Detectives are now looking for one man whom they believe to be guilty of all' three crimes. This man is called "Leather Apron," and no body knows him by any other name. He is a character half way between Dickens' 'Quilp" and Poe's "Baboon." He is short, stunted and thick set. He has small, wicked black eyes and is half crazy. He is always hanging about in the deep shadows that fall in the net work of court passages, and always in the White Chapel. He does not walk, but always moves on a sharp or queer run and never makes any noise with his feet. In addition to the three women he is believed to have murdered, he has scared a hun dred more of them nearly to death, Every street walker in White Chapel has her own story to tell of him. He lives by robbing them late at night. He is suspected ot having done three murders, in fact that he has frequently drawn a knife on a woman accom panied by some threats which have been carried out on the dead women The story of Mrs. Colwall, who heard the screams of the woman as she was being murdered, is to the effect that she was clearly running away irom somebody who was murdering her, and yet she could hear no other footsteps Dead for Love. Dallas, Sept. 4. John Dal ton, a young man 01 23 years, commiueu suicide last night, by taking an over dose- of morphine. The cause as DAYS WILL VINDICATE THE signed for this act is disappointment in love, his sweetheart having rejected him Sunday. The young man was a native of Tarrant county.

Representa tive Elliott of South Carolina, who has deeply interested himself in devising some means for the relief of farmers from the cotton bagging trust, yester day had the state department wire Mr. Russell, the United States consul at Liverpool, to ascertain if cotton heeting would be acceptable as a sub stitute for jute bagging cotton. Mr. Russell replied to-day: "I inter viewed the leading merchants and prejudice favors jute bagging: how ever, as a covering lawful and accep table the merchants suggest cotton sheeting as a substitute." Mr. J. L. Rives, acting secretary of state, writes to Col W.

O'Dell was sitting on the gallery at his home, on avenue VLy, between Twenty-sixth and Twenty-seventh streets, a man, whom he says is well known to him, attempted to assassinate him, the ball, a 33-calibre, hitting him in the right hip and ranging toward the spinal column. Physicians say he is not necessarily fattally wounded. Dr. Alice Vickery, of England, al leges that France must be the hap piest country in Europe. She says that while the surplus in women in Great Britain and Germany amounts to nearly 750,000 and 1,000,000 res pectively, France in 1881 had a sur plus of only 92,000 women, and mar riages are more prevalent in propor tion to the population in France than elsewhere. She also alleges that France has the smallest proportion of illegitimate births. From 1825 to 1867 the percentage of all illegitimate births was 7.2 in France, 8.2 in Prussia 10 in Sweden, 11 in Austrsa, and 22 in Bavaria. France has the lowest birth rate of all European countries, 23.8 to a thousand, against 31 for Great Britain and 38 for Germany? The average number of children in a French family is now 3.2, against 4.6 in England and Wales, 5.25 in Scot land, and s.4 in Ireland. Germany has nearly 5 to a family. France has a greater proportion of grown up per sons than anv other nation in Europe, the number of persons in each 10,000 between the ages of 15 and 60 being in France 5373, in Holland 4964, in Sweeden 4954, in Great Britain 4732, in the United States 4396. France has the highest average ages of the livintj, 31.06, years, against Holland 27.76, Sweden 27.66, Great Britain 26.5, the United States 23.1. In France out of every 100 deaths those of persons over the age of 60 are 26, in Switzerland 33, England 30, Bel gium 28, WurtembUrg 21, Prussia 19, Austria 17. uniR GHAT THIS WEEIC P. News!
