Dr.s MdiMC" , la. , Oct. 7. [ Special toTun
Hut : . ] The supreme court opened last week
with n largo amount of worlc before it. The
most important matters to bo triad this term
are tlio railroad cases , the Fall-all Injunction
and the schedule ease. The appeal from the
Fairall injunction will come up on the ! iJd ,
and both sides will bo argued by able
lawyers. The state will bo represented by
Attorney General Hukor , Judge Notirsc , of
this city , and James T. Lane , of Davenport.
The railroads will bo represented by Thomas
F. Witlirow , general solicitor of the Uock
Island ; T. S. Wright , of this city , and a
number of lesser lights. Tlio effect of sus
taining this injunction would bo to compjl
the state to guarantee to tlio railroads such
rates as would pay their running expenses
and a fair interest on tlieir stock and bonds.
Fairall held that the power of the legislature
to fix rates for the transportation of freight
and passengers was limited to the difference
between a reasonable and an unreasonable
rate. That tlio question of a reasonable rate
was u matter to bo determined by the courts ,
and is not subject to the discretion of the
Although this exact point has never been
tiassed upon it is not thought for a moment
tiiat the supreme court will sustain the in
junction. To do so would paralyze all the
fforts now being made for railroad control ,
special schedule for every road in the state
vould have to bo made , and the railroads , by
( verting their earnings and watering tlieir
lock , could snap their fingers at any legisla-
ive enactment calculated to curb their
tower , or reduce their extortionate charges.
: 'he question whether the schedule estab-
ished by the railroad commissioners early in
ho summer is legal and binding upon the
oiuls will bo hotly contested and will hardly
10 decided this term. The railroads have
uoirn disregarding the rates fixed by this
schedule and have laid themselves liable to
tines amounting to millions of dollars. Sev
eral sharp attorneys at various points in the
state have been collecting testimony and pre
aring to pounce upon tlio roads in the event
of a favorable decision. Should tlio court
'ail to sustain the schedule , the railroads arc
: mt yet "through the woods" by any mean * .
The present commissioners would immcdi-
iitcly RO to work and form another , which in
nil probability will not bo us favorable to
the roads as the present schedule.
The cry of the railroads that to adopt the
rates established by the commissioners would
bankrupt them has been proven to bo false
ami without the slightest foundation. In
tlio recent searching investigation nt Daven-
) ort high officials of the Uock Island were
lorced to admit that the difference between
these rates arid tlio rates the road was actu-
: illy charging would only amount to n little
over $ AX > .lUO ) annually , and they would still
o enabled to make their S per cent dividends
upon tlieir capital , which represents twice
: ho cost of the road. They frankly confessed
t was not the amount of the reductions they
cared for so much as the principle of legisla-
ivo supervision and control. They argued
hat if they admitted the right of tlio legisla
ture to arbitrarily reduce their earnings
f00,000 that the whole battle was lost and
hat the control of their business would prao-
ically bo taken out of their hands. The
railroads fully reuli/o that they are in n very
ticklish position , and hardly hope to impress
their view of the case upon the courts.
A pliant railroad commission , with
sort of superstitious reverence for
vested rights , " would bo more to
tlieir liking , and their chief energies
are being bent in this direction.
Hon. 1'eter A. Dey , who 1ms been the rep-
csentativo of the democratic party upon the
board of commissioners for ten years past ,
and signaiifled himself by a passive subservi
ence to tlio interests of the corporations , has
at last been smoked out , and compelled to
make a record. Ho filed his tirst dissenting
opinion a few days ago , taking ground-in
opposition to his republican colleagues.
Smith and Campbell that railroads could
not transport material for building churches
at reduced rates under the charity clause of
the law. This decision will hardly commend
itself to the church going people of the state
as the essence of wisdom , and if Mr. Dey is
basing his prospects for republican votes
upon this opinion ho will bovoofully disap
pointed. In fact , since-it was discovered that
ho advised and to some extent engineereil
the disgraceful railroad combine , his election
has ceased to bo among the possibilities.
Not a single anti-monopoly republican paper
in the state is supporting him and the independent
pendent press that is giving him half-hearted
encouragement , only does so that it maj
mnko votes for Smith and Campbell ; that is ,
that they are willing to help elect Dey , whc
would bo in a powerless minority provided
such a move would insure the success of
Smith and Campbell. Hon. John Muliin of
Muscatino , the republican nominee whom it
would bo necessary to defeat in order to elect
Dey , is making n rattling canvass and meet
ing with warm support. An investigation ol
his record proves that ho is not only cml
nently qualified for the position but that he
has been a radical and consistent anti-monop
olist all his life. His paper , the Muscatinc
Journal , warmly supported Governor Larnv
bco last winter , and specially commended his
recommendations in regard to railroad legis

Special to THE Hia',1 It looks ns if Mrs.
I'aran Stevens would have abundant cause
to remember her experience in Kuropo this
summer. She has been robbcrt of a fortune
in family jewels , and she has an unpleasant
conviction that she has been shamefully be
trayed by a person whom she had befriended
and trusted. Then unregcncrato tradesmen
have been pestering her with their bills , the
sheriffs have refused to leave her in peace ,
the newspapers have spun yarns about her ,
and she has had to hobnob from morning till
night with lawyers and police officers in
stead of being fitted with new gowns
and driving in thcHoisdoHouIognc. Finally ,
a day or two ago , on entering her room she
found relentless officers of the law In posses
sion of la r trunks. Now she is in despair.
This Is undoubtedly an exciting way of
spending one's vacation , but it is
also one in which the elements
of joy are sadly wanted. Since the story of
Mrs. Stevens' misfortunes was published in
the Herald of September S'J ' nnd headed ' 'A
Diamond Kobbery , " this lady's cup of tribu
lation has been gradually getting fuller and
fuller. First , she caused her Italian maid
to bo arrested on the charge of theft. This
young woman , who Is at present enjoying
life behind prison bars , has a soft voice ana
a pretty face and these count with the solemn
Judges. She has succeeded in gaining the sym
pathy of some of the French authorities , who
do not like to bclicvo Anita capable of such
Improper behavior. They nro giving her all
the benefit of doubt. This is gallant , but it
irritates Mrs. Stevens. Anita declared she
had not been paid hur salary and straightway
the powerful arm of the law reached out and
seized Mrs. Stevens' trunks. It must bo a
novel sensation in the experience of a Now
YorK millionaire to have her trunks attached
for a servant's paltry wages , yet such is the
state of affairs at present in Mrs. Stevens'
apartments at the Continental hotel. On
Wednesday next the whole affair will come
to a head. Mistress and maid will stanu
face to face before the French judges. Mrs.
Stevens does not deny owing the u'irl some
pay , but she clailns to have kept the money
so that it would not escape from her. Anita
tells a different story. The sequel to all this.
will bo given aftertho examination. Hesides
Stevens and her maid there is another woman
who has mixed herself up in the case. This
third lady is the unknown. She lives at the
Continental hotel , and has been angry lately
because she thought she was the person re
ferred to in the Heraldjs article of Septem
ber U'.t ns having possessed a disreputable
husband and a shady reputation. No one
knows why she thought so , but it appears
that she did. What is more , she thought
Mrs. Stevens had given her this unsatisfac
tory character necdlesly and states that both
those assumptions were purely gratuitous.
All the same , the unknown entertained them
sincerely , as Mrs. Pnrun Stevens discovered
last Friday evening , flu this occasion the
unknown confronted Mrs. Stevens publicly
in the Continental hotel , gkarging her with
slander. Mrs. Stcvcns'vnras first astonished
and then angry. The ynknqwn was angry
also and if looks coulct'klll there would have
been a double death OIL the spot. However ,
both ladies survived tlio encounter and are
doing well. The guests in the hotel await

Theory ol' an l-ingUsh Olllcoi-
Concerning the Murders.
Nnw YOIIK , Oct. 7. [ Special Cablegram
to Tin : HII : . ] Colonel J. C. Hughcs-Hallott ,
of London , formerly of the Hoyal artillery ,
and an M. P. , is in this city , lie says that
ho disguised himself and investigated the
Whltechapel murder case just after the
the second murder that of Martha Turner.
Ho said to-day :
"I had made up my mind , and I IIMS'O seen
since no reason to change it , that the perpe
trator of the atiocities is a Uest lind man , a
gentleman and a person of wealth and cul
ture , perhaps , but certainly of intellectual
( | imlities , finesse and keen discrimination. 1
was convinced that my man loft his club , as
I was then ooing , disguised hiniseli for his
hidcouii nocturnal revel , as 1 was then
about to do. My theory is that
the Whitoehupel murderer is an army doctor
or medical student , or a gentleman who has
read medicine and is a student of anatomy ,
as a fad , or simply as a part of a liberal edu
cation. I have no idea that ho is a practicing
physician or hospital student. I believe him
to bo n gentleman and a man of leisure , or ,
perhaps a retired army surgeon. Ho is a
man of the world. His homicidal mania , it
seems to mo , is probably tlio result of the
effect on the brain of a malady that ho ac
quired from some woman of the class ho has
now taken , or , perhaps , only begun taking ,
liis vengeance on. 'llio mental distress pro
duced by such a malady is freipiently , author
ities say , inconceivable. It might readily
breed such a butcher's mania as this. The
mutilation of the bodies , parts of
them removed by the avenger's lnire ; ,
point to this idea moro btrongly ,
and just thereby I would detect
him , although it is likely as not that ho will
never bo caught. He , very likely , preserves
the parts ho removes from his victims , to
gloat over them at his leisure. He may bur.\
them prescrve.d in alcohol , but put under the
ground to avoid detection , or ho way bun :
them In his chamber , dancing around the
sacrifice , lint ho has them in all probability ,
and by them ho should bo caught. I do not
bclicvo that the police will find him bj
seaiching Whltcchupui , or even the West
End. They must branch out and look where
suspicion has never , heretofore , pointed.
They must find these viscera , or at all events ,
trace them. "
