LONDON , Nov. 'J. [ Now York Herald
Cubic Special to THE lli.i'.l The Prince of
Wales' biithdayand lord major's day this
morning opened with a ghastly act of cele
bration. While Sandlnghain and Mnrlbor-
ough houses were illled with Joyous echoes
Whltcchapel was again suffering hoirors.
While the lord major was paiading the
streets with gorgeous surroundings , his po-
Inc were again around the wretched sham
bles wherein lav the body of another muti
lated , hapless woman , the seventh victim.
I visited the fateful locality at noon. Strong
bodies patrolled the neighborhood , "locking
the stable door after the horse was stolen. "
Why were they not r.bout last night , and the
night before , and every night since the last
imudcrl was a common expression of the
cxeltcd crowds whom the cordon of
constables kept from the wi etched
little eul do sac in which
had lived Marv Jane Kelly , alias
Tisher , alias Ginger , for months past. Not
oven icporters were allowed within the po
lice line. It was determined this time to
keep the clues fiom being effaced , tampered
with or distorted. Moreover , bloodhounds
weio to be cmnloicd and the scent must not
bo obliterated.
All kinds of conflicting and conttadictory
stories were ado it. The loc.ile of these inui-
dercrs1 streets , ono culled Hamburg and an
other Pi inccs , run to a point like Seventh
avenue and Broadway run together ntrorty-
third street. Having reference to this paral
lel the scene of the present murder would bens
ns if it had occuircd in a stable > aril on
stron between those two
Thirty-fifth ave
nues. So limited is the whole sanguinary all those slaughter spots arc
only a gunshot from the great London hospi
tal. Dr. Gnbc , of Mecklenburg square , ex-
mcdical official , was fresh from the horuble
sight in the bqualid apai tiucnt , immediately
oft the wretched court , and which had for
fuinitl'ro ' an oil stove , tvvo rickety chairs and
a squalid bedstead , at the head of which
was a plcco of looking glass , such as
ono buje in Petticoat lane for a half penny.
Ho said that in all his experience in dissect
ing rooms never had he seen such ghastli-
ness. What could be i ccallcd of the corpse
laid , as ho saw it , nearly naked on a blood
engorged woolen mattress. The victim's
hair was Hunt : upvv ard on a pillow matted
with gore , as If the murderer had there llrst
wiped his hands and threaded his telltale
fingers. The nose and ears were sliced
away. The tin oat was cut from loft to light ,
so that the alone prevented n
headsman-like severance , Below the neck
was an appeal ante such ns the caicassofa
bhccp presents in an abattoir with libs and
backbone exposed and cleaicd of stomach ,
entrails , heal t and liver. These thico organs -
gans were placed cat ofnlly beside the muti
lated trunk after the fashion of a butcher
shop. As on the picvious occasions , tlio
ntcius and ovarian adjuncts v.'cro missing
The fleih on each side of a cut on the medinn
line was carefully folded un inch or tun
uuaj from the cut. It must been the woik
of peihaps a full half hour , said the phy
sician. Hljior moitls was Just beginning
when the body was dlscoveied. The poor
crcatuie , at 5 In the moining , had been by a
fellow lodger hemd tioonlngadi unkcn song ,
pailiaps to tlin inunloicr. I'loni that hour
till 1030 this moinlng nil Is as a hidcrus
blank. Then ti ioung man who Is n neigh
bor knocked at the door. It was locked.

Pu'Vlous to. the post-nioi torn examination

of the atmocphcio was unfortunately not
iavertible to good results The nhotofi apher ,
however , succeeded In securing several nega
tives. Tl.o post-moitem examination lusted

character. Hvcry Indication as to the man

fort to break the police cordon. The crowd
was of the very humblest class. Hnggcd
caps were doffed nud slatternly looking
women shtd tears as the shell , covered with
a ragged looking cloth , wci placed in the
van The remains were taken to the Shore-
ditch mortuary , whore they will remain until
viewed by the coroner's Jury. The Inquest
will open Mondaj morning.
John McCarthy , landlord of the place ,
gives this interview :
"When I looked through the window the
sight 1 saw was moie ghastly even than 1 had
prepared myself for. On the Ved lay the
body. A white tnblo was covered with
lumps of ilesh. Soon Superintendent Ar
nold arrived and Instructions wcro Riven to
burst open the door , I at once foiccd It
with n pick ax , and we entered. The sight
looked more like the vv oik of a devil. The
poor woman had been completely disembow
eled , and the entrails placed on n table. It
was thcso that 1 had seen when I looked
through the window and took to bo picc s of
llcsh. The woman's uosc had been cut off ,
and her face gashed and mutilated so that
she was a sight bejonil recognition. Uoth
her hi easts had been cut nway and
placed by the side of her liver and
other 01 gnus on the table. I had
heard a great deal about the White-Chapel
murder , but 1 had never expected to sec
such a sight. The body was cov crcd vv ith
blood , and also the bed. The whole scene is
more than I can dcscilbc. I hope I mav
never sec such a sight again. "
"It is most extraordinary that nothing was
heard by the neighbors , as there nre people
passing backwards and forwards at all hours
of the night , but no one heard so mneh as n
sci cam. A woman tells mo that she heard
Kelly singing 'Sweet Violets' at ono o'clock
this morning , so up to that time , at all
events , she was nllvo and well. So far as I
can ascertain , no ono saw her take a man
into the house with her last night. "
lr Korbcs Winslow says it is the work of
some homicidal lunatic who has committed
the other crimes in Whitcchapel. The
harovving details point to this conclusion.
The way in which the murder was done , and
the stiango state In which the body was left ,
is not consistent with sanity. The theory I
stated some time ago lias como true to the
letter. This was , that the muulerer had
lucid Intervals , and would recommence
directly thin state had passed away. It ap
pears that the authorities are forgetting this
theory , and tliat some ono had been poruad -
ing thorn that from the fact that so long a
time intervened between the murdeis ho
could not be a homicidal maniac. I desire ,
ns personally ongiimlly responsible for
the theory to tlatly deny this , and state more
emphatically than over that thomurdeiei is
one and the same person , and that he is a
lunatic suffering from homicidal monomania ,
who , during lucid intervals , is calm and for
getful of what ho has being doing.
Unless those in authority take the pi oper
steps and drop the red tapism surrounding
the governmentoflice , such crimes will con
tinue in our metropolis to the tei lor of Lon
don. It appears to uie a burning question of
the hour.
It is only necessary to add that no possible
clue exists. Arrests aio being made of inno
cent persons as before , end the oddest stories
are started by repoiters for sensational
papers. The police are said to be reticent of
their course.

Opinions o-Interested ! I'ermniH on the
Probable HfTcct.
Cinctoo , Nov. 10 ( Special Tclcpram to
Tin : IJi.n 1 The morning papers to-daj pre
dict n general freight war among the western
roads on account of the Northwcstcrn's cut
of .vestcrctny between here and Omaha. The
situation , however , In western freight mat
ters is not ns serious as hnq been icportcd.
The freight complication has grown out of
contracts on packing house products from
the Missouri to Chlcopo made bv the Alton ,
which nre so much lower than the regular
27J cent rate that other roads , to
save their business , must meet the
list. This contract rate of the
Alton lasts until January 1 , nftor which no
disagreement is anticipated. President
Hewitt , of the Northwestern declares that
there is nothing sensational in the notice of
the reduction on packing house products ,
cattle aud hogs from the Missouri rivur to
"Our proposition is Just this , " he said.
"The Hurlington nnd other loads have made
a reduction from 2Jj cents to 1'J cents on
packing liouso piodilets. The Illinois Cen
tral has made a corresponding reduction from
Sioux City. It is the determination of the
Northwestern to have this rate adjusted
fairly. Under the rule's of the association , of
which the Northwestern is a member ,
ten days notice of n change of
rates and a like notice of the
piobablc into to be made is required. In
naming thai5 cent into we have only named
the minimum rate. It can be made ns much
higher ns we can agree upon. In other
w ords , wo have no new rates. It is simply a
notice that we want the rate adjusted on n
fairer basis It Is manifest that the reduc
tion on dressed meats to IB cents Instead of
! i7' ' cents is a ve'rj unequal nnd unjust ap
portionment of the i ate. I do not think that
there is any immediate probability of afreight
war among western roads. "
P I ) Armour knew llttlo nnd apparently
cared less about the cut In freight rates "It
is a matter that concerns us but little , if
any , " said he. "Our packing liouso products
are all shipped cost from heie. Any reduc
tion in rates vv ill hardly affect us. ns there
will ben corresponding reduction in livestock
rates. "
Assistant General Freight Agent Hose , of
the Hut ling-ton , said tlio i eduction to 12 cents
was made on account of the Alton cut.
The Alton rate has been In force
for some time , nnd we were compelled to
meet it , so that the packing houses in the
upper Missouri points , which bought hogs on
the same teriltoiy west of the Missouri
river , could eompctcwith the southwest Mis
souri liver points. Every effort was made
to get the Alton to rcstoro its rate , but In
fluences beiond the contiol of the Alton
load made the attempt unsuccessful. The
Alton contract only lasts to December. ) , and
rates will piobably be ic established January
I. The i ate is one of the results of the in
discriminate cutting going on during the
summer mouths.

Frightened to Death.
LA Cno .sr , Wis , Nov. 10. [ Special Telegram -
gram toTniI3ct. : ] Mis. Dell Gurley , of Ln
Crossc , Minn. , died suddenly of heart dis
ease Wednesday night and the attendant
circumstances , as learned to day , disclose
something of the tragic nature. Mr. Piek-
ar < 3 , who boards at Gurloy's had a dispute
about politics with D. U. Cameron during
the day , and in the evening Cameron came to
the house to settle it. Pickard tried to per
suade him to let the matter lest until the
next day , nnd meet him at some ether place ,
but Cameron would not wait and struek
him , whcieupon Pickard gave Cameron n
tcrnblc thmshing , breaking his arm and
drawing so much blood as to smear the floor
and porch. Mrs. Gurloy was neross the
street at a neighbors , and on returning the
sight of the blood , together with the terror
ol the affair , gave a terrible fright. She
seemed to recove-r from this , but half an hour
after she died. The report is that Cauiero'i
is badly injured and may not iccovcr. This
statement is from n disinterested patty , and
is no doubt substantially correct.

Special to Tun Bnn.l The cold Novem

Prado , the presidential elections in Amer

questions about her elder sistci ,
Helene , I am enabled to an
swer-these inquiries by the follow Ing au
thentic details plcanc"d , ns Mr. Mtcavvber
would sav , "on the ttpot. " Mile. Helene
Houlangcr is not so gooa looking as Mine.
Drinnt. She lives with her mother on a
quiet street in Versailles. Mile. Helene
wanted to become a sister of chanty nnd the
gencinl did not oppose tils daughter until ho
became minister of war. Then ho took
fright nnd changed Ins views. Mile. Helcno
has not became a nun after all , but she is and
will try to icmain ft kind of spiritual old
maid. She may be seen any morning praying
at a side altar in the cathedral
of Versailles. She believes in her father's
high dcstiuv nnd like Joan of Ate she hopes
some day to give him the oriilammo when ,
like Napoleon , ho crowns himself at Notre
Dime. The ioung lady has had what may
be called a political love , story , . tlio hero off
which is M. La Guerre , the barrister deputy
nnd follower of General Boulangor , . Ho was
anxious to marry her but unfortunately tnoro
is n Mine. La Guerrb aliVe and Mile. Uoulun-
gcr , as a devout Catholic , docs not believe in
Prince Victor Nnpolpon's letter to the im
perialist committees , represented by M. Kob-
eit Mitchell , shows that ho is beginning to
chafe in the not unpleasing exile of Brussels.
Not that the undutiful son of Plon Plan con
demns himself to remain in the rather quaint
looking house in Iho Avenue Louise. Tvvo
days ago ho was seen taking a Turkish bath
at the Dalncum. His bathing companions
were three diplomatists from the celestial
legation. The i oung hope of the French em
pire , surrounded by the pig tails and the
Hhavcn polls of these unpronounceable pleni
potentiaries from the very far east was
woi thy the brush of a painter of the "im
pressionist" school.
Squaring the circle is generally looked
upon as sheer lunacy or unprofitable figur
ing. It appears , however , that Mr. W. J.
13ainalla , wonderously clever mathemati
cian and the oiganlst of the East Hundicd in
Berkshire , England , has really hit upon
some feasible scheme , which ho has laid before -
fore the French neudemy of science. His
formula consists of eight figures which , in a
concrete shone , form a perfect cyclometer.
The discovery has taken fifteen i ears hard
work. What may bolts practical results it
is hard to say , but an architect tells mo that
if Mr. Uarnall has really worked out the
long-talked of quadrature , ho bus discovered
another philosopher's stone and left hopes
that perpetual motion may follow.

Prince Bismarck has again sei/cd the oe-

A Mozambique dispatch to night announces
the departure of the Italian cruiser Doiiali

will irritate the Arabs and render thorn inoro

from Zan/ibar says : "Tho sud
