Burgho And Barnaby In NY

TWO FAMOUS BLOODHOUNDS.

Arrival of the Dogs Used in Hunting "Jack the Ripper."

Not the least interesting passengers on the National steamship Holland, which arrived in New York from London early today, were two valuable English bloodhounds, formerly the property of Sir Charles Warren, the late Chief of the London Police. These two animals were used some time ago by Sir Charles in an effort to trace the whereabouts of the Whitechapel fiend, "Jack the Ripper." The dogs were purchased for John I. Winchell, of Fair Haven, Vt. They are valued at $1,000 each. They are of a black and tan color and about the height of a mastiff, with smooth glistening coats and long heads and ears.
As both the National Line piers are at present in use the Holland will lay out in the stream opposite Fifty-ninth street, North River, until Sunday. The animals will probably be taken off the ship tonight and placed on exhibition for a day or two.
