LONDON, Nov. 25.—Through tlio
columns o)' the Times and other
papers there has recently been a
concerted attack upon what is
called municipal socialism, it is
claimed to he unfair competition,
and to he largtly responsible for
present commercial dullness in this
country. Influential English and
American company promoters are
fighting municipal socialism in
(/very possible way. Qas, electric
and street car stock is depreciated
in value because so many English
nnd Scotch cities have taken this
business into their own hands and
either bought out or fro/en out tho

asked for the formation of a com

and decide on a plan of campaign,
and offered to such committee the
services of a well-known lawyer,
who will undertake to conduct the
legal side of the undertaking with

Dr. Lambert followed with an ef
fective speech, urging business men
to come forward and take up the
cudgels. "You don't want preach

A discussion arose as to whether
the future sessions of the league
should be executive or not.
There were no specific reasons

some discussion a motion was put

A FIEND WORSE THAN
"JACK THE RIPPER/*
A FRENCH . VILLAGE HAS BEEN TERRORIZED BY A MYSTERI
OUS MURDERER, WHO ONLY ATTACKS WOMEN—ELEVEN
HAVE BEEN ASSAULTED IN FOUR MONTHS.
PARIS, Nov. 25.—The dark deeds
of "Jack the Ripper" seem to have
been outdone in atrociottsness by
the fiendish hand of some mysteri
ous murderer in and around the
villnge of Bour-la-Reine. The re
cent murder of an officer's wife lias
redoubled the alertness of the po
lice officials of the district In their
effort to solve the mystery. The
fiend has frequented the neighbor
hood for several months, and it has
become absolutely unsafe for wom
en to venture out unattended after
nightfall. Men are never molested,
and the victims, both old ami
young, are handled alike.
The monster has made no less
than 11 attacks upon defenseless
women since last July. He rushes
up to his victims, clutches them by
the throat, pushes a sop of chloro
form under their nose and then
robs them and maltreats them.
They are invariably found with
their clothing almost entirely torn
from their bodies, and the Crimea
are without exception committed
on Thursday nights, which also
adds mystery to the affair.
The lirst case of assault occurred
June 7, on the person of Mme. Li
billois, a maiden lady over (W years
of age, who was returning home.

PHILANTHROPIST PASSES THE
NEW YORK, Nov. 25.—1t is just
(!"> years today since a baby t>oy
destined to become world famous
as a philanthropist first saw tho
light of day at the little town of
Dumferline, Scotland. The boy was
Andrew Carnegie. His parents
brought him to this country while
he was still a mere child ami at 10
years of age he began his career in
the blue uniform of a district mes
senger boy in Pittsburg, a city
which has since benefited incalcul
ably through his benefactions.
In must of his biographies the
date of Mr. Carnegie's birth is
given as 1S:15, which would make
him <w years old today, but Mr.
Carnegie himself is authority for
the assertion that he Is but 65. As
a matter of fact the lord of SklbO
is as sensitive regarding his age
as he is concerning the subject of
death. Those most intimately ac
quainted with him aver that the
mention of either subject in hbs
presence is offensive to him. How
ever true this may be a number
of his friends and business associ
ates of this city made bold today
to cable their congratulations on
the occasion of his birthday, Mr.
Carnegie is now in London recov
ering from a slighl Illness. With
in a fortnight he Is expected to re
turn here and take up his residence

WASHINGTON. Nov. 25.—The
presence of numerous army officers
in full dress uniform gave a pretty
setting today to the wedding of
Miss (Catherine Craig, daughter of
Lieutenant Colonel and Mrs. Uobert
Craig, and Harold Williams. .Jr., of
Boston. Tlie ceremony was per
formed at noon in the historic St.
John's church, Lafayette square.
The maid of honor was Miss Mary
Kendall of this city and the brides
maids the Misses Lillian and lOlva
King of Irvington. N. Y. Miss Sara
Turner of New York city. Miss M.
C. Williams. Miss Agnes Lincoln
and Miss Grace Dabney of Huston.
George McClure Sargent of Boston
acted as best man. Following the
ceremony at the church there was
a large and brilliant reception at
the Craig residence.
Quite a romance attaches to to
(lay's wedding. At the time of the
Windsor hotel lire in New York
city Miss Craig was visiting rela
tives in the hotel and was In the
pallor entertaining Mr. Williams.
The lire had penetrated to the very
door of the drawing-room before the
young people discovered their dan
ger. Mr. Williams, seeing no aid
at hand, took ...lss Craig in his
arms ami fought his way through
the flames to a small veranda,
where both were brought to the
pavement by firemen. The engage
ment was announced about a year
after the tire.
