Missing Articles of 1889

Post by Karen on Tue 24 Jan 2012 - 8:58

March 30, 1889

We are continually hearing of cranks who, afflicted with some delusion, feel compelled to do something or other that may or may not be within the bounds of reason. Twelve good men true have declared McDermott, the author of the Swanson-street tragedy, to be a crank. Very few people would have much hesitation in describing "Jack the Ripper" to be a crank, though a very dangerous one. But the crank that takes the cake is a mysterious being of the masculine gender who haunts, or rather a few weeks back did haunt, St. Louis, and who was in the habit of kissing every pretty woman he met, and then giving her a card having the following inscription:

COMPLIMENTS OF JACK THE KISSER.

Any lady who has been kissed three times
by Jack and retains this card is entitled to membership in the Grand Army of the Redeemed.
Jack's kiss purifies, but never defiles.
His mission is divine, and his kiss devoid of sensuality.
[Over.]

On the reverse side of the card are these two verses:

Some seek for fame on crimson field,
With flashing blade and battered shield;
But with arm as strong - heart as bold,
I lust not for blood nor kill for gold.
But when the gaslights dimly shine,
I seek from women's lips divine
A solace for this soul of mine,
As Bacchus did from rosy wine.

Unto this breast I fold the fair,
And kiss each shining lock of hair,
While on their lips a seal I press
With all a lover's tenderness.
My mission truly is inspired,
And by no base passion fed or fired,
When maid is marked I never miss her,
Sooner or later I surely kiss her.

Fervently yours, JACK THE KISSER.

"Jack" must have had some pleasant times, but he must also have proved such an objectionable character that I have no doubt that long ere this the good citizens of St. Louis have tarred and feathered him.

HAMBURG, April 10.

The body of a boy, horribly mutilated and evidently murdered, has been found in a back street in this city. The circumstances strongly resemble those of the Whitechapel murders, the mutilations having evidently been done by a practised hand. There is no clue to the murderer.

JACK THE RIPPER STYLE.

Mobile (Ala.) dispatch: Captain Jones, of the schooner Arthur, arrived today from Bay Islands and reports that at Ruatan, last month, Rev. Henry Hobson, wife and her companion, a young girl, all of Jamaica, were murdered by Joseph Bures. Bures, discovering that Mrs. Hobson had money, entered the house at night and cut the throats of all three persons. He robbed them of what money and valuables they possessed. The next day Bures was arrested, and he made a full confession of guilt. Captain Jones says that the butchery of the three persons and the mutilation of the bodies of both women bore a strange resemblance to the murders committed by the Whitechapel murderer in England.

A Minister and Family Butchered.

A dispatch from Mobile, Ala, says: Capt. R. Jones, of the schooner Arthur, arrived last week from Bay Islands, and reports that at Ruatan last month Rev. Henry Hobson, his wife and her companion, a young girl, all natives of Jamaica, were foully murdered by Joseph Bures. The family were preparing to leave there for Batisee and Bures was helping. Discovering that Mrs. Hobson had money, Bures at night entered the house and cut the throats of all three persons. He then robbed them of what money and valuables they possessed, including a watch, was arrested and made a confession of his guilt. Capt. Jones says the butchery of the three persons and the mutilation of the bodies of both women bore strong resemblance to the murders committed by the Whitechapel murderer in England.

Ed. Newton's pony which he recently bought, came by a very mysterious death last Friday. He rode out in the country, as usual, and put his pony in the barn and on going to start for home, found it dead with its throat cut, with all appearances with a knife, as no nail or anything could be found which could be the means of inflicting the wound. Surely no "Jack the Ripper" is practicing on horses in this vicinity.

The Difference.

Ouray Solid Muldoon: John Arkins' attempt to belittle Murat Halstead is on a par with all that corporate-job-work-schemer's efforts - d--n small. When the day rolls around that Jack, the Ripper, can wield his caustic pen or equal in brains the Ohio editor, it will be a legal holiday for the Arkins family. One thing that can be said for Halstead is that he is a Republican for principle's sake, while the Denver man is simply a tool in the hands of Republicans. One edits a bitterly Republican sheet with brains back of it, the other a so-called Democratic sheet with job work as its incentive. Halstead is a journalist; Arkins a journalistic fraud; hence, the difference.

May 8, 1889

The reporter is the backbone of the newspaper - its chronicler in chief, in fact - and whether he be shorthand writer or descriptive reporter, must have high intelligence and great judgement. Sometimes, as in Parliament, he has more to do than report; he has to improve the utterances of speakers. How nicely the sentences are constructed in a Parliamentary report. If they were to listen to a debate after reading one, they must think the speakers not quite up to their usual literary form, or else that much of the artistic merit of the speeches is supplied by the reporter.
The reporter has now a recognised position, and goes everywhere in search of news. There was a touch of genius about that gentleman who went in search of Jack the Ripper in petticoats, and the incident illustrates the demand for sensation. In the silly season, when editors are in search of something novel to tickle the ears of the public, happy is the man who asks "Is marriage a failure?" and the reporter with a new sensation is worth his weight in bank cheques. Below the reporter comes the penny-a-liner, who has a monopoly of terrible fires, alarming accidents, romantic suicides, and similar items. A coroner's inquest is a godsend to him, and he narrates the bursting of a boiler in language that would do justice to an earthquake. Sometimes the "liner" has a stroke of luck, as in the case of the one who followed the Duke of Wellington as he left the House of Lords, and overheard a State secret disclosed in conversation.

May 10, 1889

SUMMARY VENGEANCE. - According to the Cape Argus of March 20, a Dutch farmer, who arrived at Barberton, on horseback, from the neighbourhood of Standerton, in the Transvaal, states that a few days previously, while he was in the town, a Dutch woman of the district was the victim of a terrible outrage, the details of which are of the Whitechapel murders description. A Kaffir, it is stated, outraged the woman, and afterwards horribly mutilated her. The Kaffir was secured, and lodged in gaol at Standerton, but shortly afterwards a party of Boers arrived on the scene, and demanded that the prisoner should be given up to them. This being, of course, refused, they proceeded to break open the "tronk" or gaol, and laying violent hands upon the Kaffir, made short work of him, and literally cut him to pieces. The informant states that it was intended to hush the matter up as much as possible; but it is thought the Government will be obliged to take cognisance of the affair. Public sympathy will, of course, it is added, be with the participators in this act of vengeance.

A WHITECHAPEL VICTIM.
The Story of Annie Chapman, as Told by Her Sister.

LONDON, May 22. - The history of one of the Whitechapel victims of Jack the Ripper is a sad illustration of the fearful power of inherited alcoholism. It appears that there were four or five children in the family. The parents were intemperate. It is the sister of the poor creature who tells the rest. The unhappy woman had unfortunately inherited the craving, and before she was 14 had taken to drink. The others became converted, and did all in their power to cure their sister, but it was of no use. The sister at length married comfortably and children were born. But the craving for drink grew greater and greater and at length she was sent to a home for inebriates, where she stayed for a year. She left apparently, said the sister, a changed woman.
Soon after, however, her husband caught a severe cold and before going out one morning drank a glass of hot whiskey - taking care, however, not to do so in the presence of his wife. Then, as was his custom, before leaving he kissed his wife. At once the fumes of alcohol passed into her, and in an hour she was a drunk and roaring woman. She went from bad to worse, and at last left her husband and children, one of them a cripple through her drunkenness. The husband died two years ago a white-haired and broken-hearted man, though only 45 years of age. "Need I add," said the sister in a letter, "what became of her? Her story is that of Annie Chapman, one of the recent Whitechapel victims. That was my sister."

Jack the Ripper in Melbourne.
By Electric Telegraph - Copyright.

[PER UNITED PRESS ASSOCIATION.]
MELBOURNE, May 21.

It is reported that when the police were paraded at the barracks this morning the men were warned to be on the alert, as it was believed that Jack the Ripper, the alleged author of the recent Whitechapel horrors, had arrived in the colony, the Police Department having received information that he had been seen in Melbourne. Rumours of the warning were afloat in the city during the day, and caused a great sensation.

May 22.

The police have received letters signed "Jack the Ripper," apprising them of his arrival in Australia, and announcing his intention of opening a career of crime here similar to his performances in London and the West Indies. The writer concludes by telling them to catch him if they can. The police believe the letters to be a hoax, but precautionary measures have been taken in view of possibilities.

HE HUGS WOMEN.
A Detroit Crank Alarms Women on the Street by Embracing Them.

DETROIT, Mich., May 26. - Special Telegram.

- Much excitement has been created among women in various portions of the city by a well-dressed man whose actions to women who are compelled to be out after dark are somewhat too familiar. His operations have been reported on Congress and Rispelle streets and other thoroughfares. The man steals cautiously up behind a woman, seizes her roughly by the waist, and then when she utters a scream turns and disappears at a dog trot. Several complaints have been made to the police. Captain Starkweather had an officer on duty in citizen's clothes, but the officer was not even able to get a glimpse of the man. Captain Starkweather believes the fellow to be a crank afflicted with a mania similar to that which is supposed to be possessed by the Whitechapel murderer, but fortunately less violent.

Some time ago a young girl named Martha McMurrin, of Mullabrack, when in bed was much terrified at seeing standing at the bedside a person dressed as a man, brandishing a weapon, and crying out "I am Jack the Ripper." The girl never mentally recovered from the shock, and the police have just found it necessary to take the poor creature into custody. After being mentally examined she was pronounced to be a dangerous lunatic, and removed to the Downpatrick Asylum. The perpetrator of the "joke" proved to be a female friend of the unfortunate girl.

June 3, 1889

"Jack the Ripper."

A sensational report was circulated in Melbourne on May 21 that the notorious "Jack the Ripper," the Whitechapel murderer, was the latest distinguished visitor to the colony. The origin of the rumour appears to have been that Inspector Kennedy, of the Criminal Investigation department, received a letter, evidently written by some uncommonly vulgar and ignorant larrikin of Melbourne, signed "Jack the Ripper," announcing the presence of the latter in that community, and his intention to make a raid upon the unfortunates of the city at an early date. The wretched communication had no pretention to point or wit, and was, on the face of it, a miserable hoax. Inspector Kennedy treated the letter as undeserving of notice, and did not consider it even necessary to cause it to be read to the police on parade. One of the evening papers gave currency to the incident in a form which was calculated to excite the imaginations of females of a certain temperament and cast of mind, and the result was that at least one woman, a couple of hours after reading this report, felt so convinced that she had had a visit from the Whitechapel murderer that she forthwith communicated with the police at Russell street barracks. This woman, a Mrs. Costelloe, living in Cardigan street, Carlton, near Victoria street, stated that on the afternoon of the 21st, a tall dark man, a foreigner, wearing a long overcoat called at her house and asked for lodgings. She showed him a room where there were three beds, but he stated that he required a room to himself, where he could keep valuable tools safe. He inquired where the back entrance to the premises was, and mentioned that his work kept him out till 3 a.m. and 4 a.m., and he should like to be able to get to his room quietly. Mrs. Costelloe thereupon asked him what business could keep him out at night working with tools, and quickly followed up this question by demanding if he was "Jack the Ripper." The man replied with a sardonic laugh and went his way. Subsequently Mrs. Costelloe got two men who lodged in her house to go to the police and relate the particulars of what she regarded as a suspicious visit from a mysterious visitor. The police attach the same amount of importance to Mrs. Costelloe's disclosure as Inspector Kennedy does to that of "Jack the Ripper" himself.

June 12, 1889

Yesterday evening a festival service was held at St. Paul's, in connection with the East London Church Fund, the choir being the combined choirs of the rural deanery of Hackney. The Bishop of Derry preached from 1 Peter i. 8. "The Gospel (he said) appointed by the Church to be read between Easter and Ascension times may be said to form a kind of preparation for the invisible reign of our blessed Lord. With Whitsuntide we seem to enter upon that invisible reign itself. I propose to speak to you tonight something about the present and unseen reign of Christ over our hearts by love. I will speak for a little while of our relations to human love after our disappearance from the earth by death. I will speak briefly, for it is perhaps an unwholesome subject to think about too long. In this matter we have the advantage of having a picture, so to speak, painted for us by the cynical genius of Swift. What a strange pathos very often seems to arise from the touch of that rough humour of his! In France his words were as well known as any in the English language. Swift traces out the lamentation which he supposes to be produced by the news of his own death. He tells us how his friends lament for different lengths of time, according to their different dispositions. One mourns a week, another a month, another only one day, whilst the rest will give a shrug of the shoulders and say, "'Tis pity, but we all must die." Yes; subjective morality is a rampant sort of morality after all. The place occupied by any on the ledge of fame and genius is very narrow indeed. Forgetfulness soon grows over us, and we are less than shadows after the sun has passed. Contrast this with the influence of the unseen Christ. By His death Paul says we see the Resurrection and Ascension. Not only is our Lord Jesus Christ known to countless millions, but He is loved wherever He is known. Amongst those who have never seen Him Christ has power to perpetuate His love through all ages. The first Napoleon, who trusted rather to the effect of his own fascination, awoke to the continued fascination of the love of Christ and said, "I am a judge of men, but I tell you that this was more than a man." We have spoken of the effect of the present reign of the unseen Christ by love. Let me refer to three applications of it. First, the text lies at the heart and root of the whole Christian life. A great writer has told us in his own picturesque way that Antioch was the capital of vice, the shore of all sorts of infamies, the house of moral and spiritual putrefaction. Yet the disciples were called Christians first at Antioch. It is a solemn time when a new influence gets its name, for the name is a distinct sign of separate existence. It may be that, as we have been told, the name was founded upon the misconception that Christ was a proper name. But, at all events, ten years after the Resurrection and Ascension our Lord's disciples called themselves by the name of One Whom they loved, and that Name will never die - that beautiful, that worthy Name by which we are called. Secondly, people are all too ready to put to others trisyllabic questions to which they must have monosyllabic answers. "Are you saved?" "Yes." Another question put in this form is, "Do you love Jesus?" That is a question we should put to ourselves rather than to others. Imitate, brethren, the sensitive delicacy of St. Peter in our text - "Whom, having not seen, we love." Do we love Jesus? Our answer to the question is to be measured, not by what we say, not by what we think we are enabled to do, but why what we do when the hour of trial comes. Lastly, and briefly, the text is a fitting theme for the Bishop of Bedford's East London Church Fund, for which I now plead, What are its wants? The Bishop of Bedford asks you for 20,000 pounds this year. Englishmen have plenty of money to give when their hearts are touched. Shall it be said that there is greater power in the name of a favourite racehorse to stir the hearts of England than there is in the name of Him Whom we all love? For whom is it asked? For a million and a half of souls, 700,000 of whom have been transferred by the Bishop of London, that great athlete for Christ, who never shrinks from any work so far as he is concerned. And think of the services which have been done and are being done by this fund. I believe Bishop Walsham How said the evil one threw down his challenge to the Church in the blood-stained streets of Whitechapel. And well has the gage been taken up and the challenge answered. The fund has already between eighty and ninety fixed clergymen and a much larger number of lay-workers in these various districts. A French writer has spoken of the somewhat coarse texture of English religious philanthropy. Of coarse texture it may be, but look closer and you will find that texture is shot through and through with the golden living of a high enthusiasm. Have any of you looked into the late reports about the halfpenny dinners for children who go to school? If so, you will have seen a woodcut of the man who acts as cook - I believe a man busy in other ways during the day - standing ladle in hand over a hot fire in the little kitchen. And that woodcut has caused more than one to say, "How much more has that man done for the love of Christ than I have done!" Doubt not for a moment that there is fine material among the children of these districts. One who knows such work well is in the habit of going into the large room where the little children are gathered together to play. She observed a little mite of a boy carrying a little baby, whom he held close. The lady asked him, "Would you like to play?" "Yes," was the reply. "Will you give me the baby whilst you go and play?" asked the lady. "No," said the boy; and when asked the reason he said, "Because mother works so hard for us all and takes care of the rest and I take care of baby, and don't think I ought not to." How poor besides this is the philosophy of a splendid man who once gave way to excess for a week, and when the reason came to be sifted it was because he had been disappointed in the arrival of a batch of books upon the criterion of moral duty. I do not want to overcharge the character of the darkness of the East-end. The best and most competent authorities tell us that improvement is spreading year after year. I do not suppose there is a much greater quantity of explosive revolutionary material there than elsewhere, and yet in those unlovely streets there is much misery, sometimes from too much work and sometimes from too little work. We want the magical touch of affection. It is better, after all, than any excursion into the country, beautiful as the country may be. We have learned to love Christ. We once never thought we could love One Who is unseen. But we have learned to know Him now. We love Him because He first loved us, and we rejoice with a joy which is unspeakable and full of glory." The service was then concluded with a hymn, and the Benediction was pronounced by the Bishop of Bedford. The collection was in aid of the East London Church Fund.

June 14, 1889

The Melbourne correspondent of a contemporary writes: - A rumor has been current in Melbourne to the effect that "Jack the Ripper," the Whitechapel murderer, is in our midst. What lent color to the report was the fact that the evening papers stated that on the police being paraded at the Russell street Barracks last week a general order was read cautioning them to be doubly vigilant, and describing the appearance of the murderer. Such a rumor was bound to affect a certain class of people; and it is not surprising to hear that an excited female has reported to the police the news that "Jack the Ripper" has paid her the honor of visiting her. She described him as a tall, sallow man, pointed features, and wearing a cape overcoat. He called and asked for lodgings, intimating that he would require a place where he could come in at four in the morning. The lady thereupon boldly said: "You are Jack the Ripper"; upon which the mysterious individual smiled sardonically. The sardonic smile seems to have been proof positive as to the man's identity in the lady's estimation! The origin of the rumour has been traced to an anonymous communication, similar to others that were received by the police some time ago, and is regarded as a hoax.
We are all of us bound to make blunders in this life. Most of our troubles come from trying to uphold them after they are made.

HORSES CRUELLY MAIMED.
A Brute's Fiendish Work at Plymouth - Horses Disfigured.

Special Dispatch to the Sentinel.

PLYMOUTH, June 16. - For several months past some brute has been systematically and wantonly cutting and maiming horses whenever he could get the opportunity, and the fiendish achievements of the unknown wretch have earned him the title of "Jack the Ripper." Last night he was at work again and a valuable horse, owned by William Thiedman, who resides west of the city, was brutally cut while standing in front of a saloon. The animal was cut from mouth to ear on both sides of the head, and terribly slashed in the breast. The animal had bled profusely before its injuries were discovered. This is the seventh horse similarly injured in the city during the past few months, notwithstanding the authorities have offered liberal rewards and detectives have been employed to ferret out the guilty wretch. Whether he is actuated by some personal spite or simply by some maniacal person is not known. If he can be caught he will be summarily dealt with.

A new and popular summer drink is called "strawberry fizz." It is really a thinly disguised "gin fizz," the disguise consisting in a crushed strawberry and the name. One or two drinks serve to invigorate, four will cause you to forget that we all have our troubles, six is an incentive to astronomical investigations, eight drinks will cause you almost to forget you are a gentleman, and ten will bring a scene from "Jack the Ripper" up before your eyes.

IDENTIFIED BY BODY SCARS.
The Woman Whose Body Was Hacked and Thrown into the Thames Still Thought to be a Victim of Jack the Ripper.

LONDON, June 25. - The name of the woman whose body was cut up and thrown into the Thames recently was Elizabeth Jackson. This fact has been established by scars on the body and by the clothing. She was last seen alive May 31. The theory that she was a victim of Jack the Ripper is again revived.

THE THAMES MYSTERY.
IDENTIFICATION OF THE BODY.

The Metropolitan Police have at length been able to place practically beyond doubt the identity of the woman, portions of whose mutilated remains have been found in the Thames from time to time since the 4th inst. By means of certain scars, and the clothing incautiously or recklessly left by the murderer, a number of persons have been enabled to declare in the most positive manner that she was Elizabeth Jackson, well known in some of the common lodging-houses in the Chelsea district. She was last seen alive on the 31st of May. Since then she has not been in any of her accustomed haunts, and facts in the possession of the police leave little doubt that upon the evening of that day she met her murderer. The police on their part have traced the woman's movements up to the hour almost of her disappearance. She certainly has not since been in any of the many common lodging-houses within the metropolitan area, nor an inmate of any of the casual wards, workhouses, or hospitals in London. Living from hand to mouth she must have been without means to leave London, except on foot, and her physical condition made it practically impossible for her to go on tramp. Among the other evidence of identification was that furnished by a sister of Jackson, who stated that she had a peculiar scar on one of her wrists. The remains in Battersea mortuary were, in consequence of this statement, again examined by Dr. Bond, Dr. Hibbert, and Dr. Felix Kempster. The flesh of the wrists was somewhat decomposed; but on lifting the skin the experts mentioned arrived at the conclusion that a scar similar to that described by the sister had certainly existed. The clue first taken up by the police was that afforded by the name "E.L. Fisher," which was written in marking ink on the linen band of the under garment on the first portion of the body found at Battersea. It was ascertained that the garment originally belonged to a lady in a good position in society, who, upon her marriage some five or six years ago, gave it away with other cast-off underclothing and wearing apparel. The police traced the garments from owner to owner, until they found the person who gave it to the missing woman Elizabeth Jackson. It is noteworthy that the houses in which Elizabeth Jackson lodged from time to time, and the thoroughfares which she used to promenade at night, are all within a short distance of Battersea-bridge, from whence the lighter parts of the body were evidently thrown into the river, and Battersea-park, where the upper portion of the trunk was found. It is further stated that some time ago the woman lived at Ipswich with a millstone dresser named Fairclough, who cannot be traced, and that on his deserting her she returned to London in depressed spirits and needy circumstances.

July 7, 1889

For the Sacramentos, Goodenough, Veach, O'Day and Roberts made the only hits during the whole nine innings. The latter drove out a three-bagger, but "died" on the third corner.
Besides pitching an excellent game, Burke has four put-outs to his credit, all being high fly balls, which were taken in without a "muff." Krehmeyer "bagged" two high fouls, and caught a fine game behind the bat.
Gagus made his debut as Captain and shortstop of the home club, and was enthusiastically received. He fielded his position in admirable style, but did not succeed in placing the ball for a hit. He coached in an able manner, and whenever a "kick" was made by the other side he was always on hand to urge the interests of his nine. Altogether, he made a good impression.
Veach accepted thirteen chances, though an error had to crawl into his score. It was an excusable one, however, being a hot grounder which he neatly stopped, but could not find the ball after he had stopped it - in fact, he was surprised in having stopped the ball at all.
O'Day and McSorley had four and five chances, respectively, which they took in without a "fumble." The latter, in the sixth inning, made a remarkable stop of a "ground-ripper" off Dooley's bat and put the runner out at first.
Roxburg and Goodenough did not have a chance in the field.
A noticeable point of the game was the fact that only once during the contest were there two men on bases at the same time. The few bases stolen supports this fact.
