T-, Nor. 18. Fred Barber, of Sheffield, England, who committed suicide at , Suspension Bridge on Friday night, came to the Prospect Hotel on the 14th inai. with a . woman giving the name of Mary Pattison Hill, ' and, later in the evening, was married to her by the Ber. Mr. Slowitts, a Presbyterian clergy- ' man, of the Falls. They were believed to hare then gone to Hamilton, from which place Barber returned to the bridge alone on Friday night and shot himself as reported. The fol lowing letter, wnicn . waa xouna in us saonst and which was produced at the Coroner's inquest on Saturday, shows that Barber waa infatuated with the woman, and that he could not legally marry her.

Up tq my landing in this country I was an honorable man. Since then I hare been a ; dishonorable fool in my intercourse with you. Had I the sense to see the drift of your letters I would have realized that you wished to put something to ' me, . and make me ' understand that- what we : wished for could not be.

Fnnx Some Toronto gentlemen who hare known Barber for a veer rt&jit and who. nmii tr tho bridge after the suicide, thought him a widower, but Coroner Cornell understands that he had a wife living in England. This view is consistent with the foregoing letter which was not mailed, and it is believed that his remorse over being lured into a marriage with the Hill woman impelled him to suicide. The Hill woman has disappeared and no one at the bridge knows anything about her. BHS IS JPOIXY BXXDDt Toboitto. Ontario. ov. 19.

" Brooklyn Tim: The general demand for the return of Warner Miller to the United States Senate need surprise nobody. It waa the general verdict of friends and enemies alike that Miller waa one of the best Senators that ever represented the State of New York is the United States Senate. A good, effective speaker when speech was necessary, but not a showy man, he was above all a hard worker in the committees, where the real work of the Senate is dona, and he was constant, aaaiduous and conscientious in his attention to the interests -of his constituents. Two clans have been suggested to .facilitate the return of Warner Miller to the Senate. One is the promotion of benator Hisoock to the Cabinet. The F.mpire tstate is entitled 'to representation in the Cabinet and it would be difficult to find a statesman better fitted for such a position, or a safer and more conservative adviser for the President than Frank His-eock, of Onondaga. Another suggestion involves the retirement of Jndge BtatcUford from the Supreme Court of the United States and the anpointment of Senator Evarts in his place. The fitness of such an appointment would be universally recognised. As an authority on constitutional law William M. Evarta has no superior in the United States, and it can readily be believed that he is more than willing to retire from active participation in- politics to the dignified seclusion of the Supreme Court bench. If the return of Warner Miller to the Senate should prove to be one of the consequences of his defeat in the Gubernatorial fight, the Timtm will be ready to aocept that defeat aa, to some extent, a blessing in disguise. FEI1XK FACTOBT IXSPECTOES. New York Tribune: One or the bills to be introduced in that new Republican Legislature will be that providing for eight female factory inspectors. The bill takes the appointment of these inspectreeaes out of the hands of Ia-S spector Connolly and gives tho patronage to the Governor, therebv incurring the inspector's hostility. General Hasted and Fremont Cole are both in favor of the bill and will support it in the Assembly, and Senator Fassett will do likewise iu the Sonata Governor Hill has signified his willingness to sign such a bill for tne benefit of tne factory workingwomen of tho State. The New York Working Women's Society will present ths measure. IS HE TIIE BUTCIIEE?

A man was arrested here to-dsy in connection with the Whitechapel crimes. : He gave his name as Doctor Kum-blety, of New York. ; He could not be held on suspicion, but the police succeeded in getting him held under the special Hw passed, soon after the "Modern Babylon exposures. , KNOWN IN NEW YORK. NrwYo&x, Nov. 19. Doctor Kumblety is well known In this city. His name, however, is Twomblety. Twenty-four year ago he made his advent in this city, end was since then known only" as : "Doctor . Twomblety, a most eccentrlo man. He formerly resided in Nova Scotia, where he practiced medicine under the name of Dr. Sullivan. About the time of his appearance in this dry he was a fugitive from justice,- having fled from Nova Scotia to : escape punishment for ' malpractice. Ever since his identity became known . here he has been ' under the surveillance of Inspector Byrnes, officers, who rarely lose sight of him or knowledge of his whereabouts. During the past few years Twomblety has opened a branch office in London, and has been making regular trips across the ocean at intervals of five or six months. He was last seen here about five months ago. ' i ' .'- BILLT PINKERTON'S POINTS. ; Billy Pinkerton, whose mind is a store house of facta, that the rushing world quickly forgets when removed from the immediate arena of its hfe,late yesterday af temoon,suddenlyfnd without any explanatory 1 introduction, unless a rapt gaae at - ansvening paper which be had jnat bought, could be .. called an . introduction, exclaimed - as . he walked along Clark street with a reporter of Ths IstexOckam: "Peculiar Dr.. Tumblery (looking at the paper, and the description of the . supposed Whitechapel murderer.) Tumble ty! No, that's not it. Something like that, though. Tumbledy. Nol Twombleyt . That's more like it . "What's mora like it," aaked the surprised reporter; astonished at Billy's evolution of the printed murderer's name as given in the London cablegram, into some other name, leas peculiar and more directory-form. Y , "What? Why it'a the aame man. The very same man that I met in Washington' long ago. . "Well, but what man, . What can your Waah-ington man of long ago have to do with the Whitechapel murderer? ' ;" '' ' - ; ' . I'LL B&OW TOTJ, A3TD TBAIL. HT down, too, for yon from that long ago, and then yon can judge for yourself whether or not it is not the same man. ; I first knew that man thia Dr. TambUty or Tumbledy or Jwombly, (I think that last is it) in Washington during the latter part of 6L He was then a man of about 3U years of age, six fast high, well buQt; had very dark hair, and very long mnetaohe dyed coal-black. In fact his mustaches grew into his beard, or rather the beard . lengthened ont his mustaches until the latter - spread down over ' his ' - shoulders. The - natural color of his hair was dark brown. He waa, in abort, a Tory conspicuous figure all over. He was a splendidly built man, and made his aress add to his attractions. He wore a sort of military) dress.' He made himself as conspicuous by his dress aa be did by his immense coal-black mustache. He wore a military cap, a black velvet mat, and lavender colored pants. ' On his feet he had moroooo top boots, and silver or gold spurs on the boqts, and rode a pie-bald horse, caparisoned a good deal like a circus horse. He would he taken anywhere for .: '' " - ;"-Y- ' a awaxr. akmt owuaa. ' ''V At that time my duties in Washington were connected with the secret service of the army, and my attention was naturally drawn to him a good deal by his military appearance. But had that not been the case I could not have failed to notice him, or had my attention drawn to him, for be was the talk of the whole etty, and nil Washington aeemad to know him. In passing up and down Pennsylvania, avenue, -hs was the most conspicuous figure on the street - 1 soon found out that bs was a quack doctor, and that he was scattering broadcast his advertisements of a cure for a certain olass of complaints. A little inquiry soon showed that he had flooded the army with his handbills and witn objectionable books, so much so that General McClellan issued strict orders that ths circulation of these books in the army should be suppressed, on the ground that many of the books were calculated to debase the soldiers, their contents being of an immoral character and their illustrations a till more so. Of course this military acknowledgement that the doctor existed only caused a still mora wide attention to be turned upon him. He was watched with closer scrutiny, and, st laat. it became known that he waa in the habit of indulging in oertain vices that finally resulted in his being driven from the city. The next time I met uim was in Baltimore. Then I MET HIM IX nV TOSX ' " - and in different other cities throughout the country and aa far West as San Fraaoiaco even. In Chicago, along about '69, he was detected in Indulging in the vices to which I havs referred, and he had to fly that city. The next time I saw him was ' in England, in 187-4. I ran across' him then, accidentally, in Liverpool, and again in London. In the latter city he made - a complaint ' to. the police that a boy whom he had employed aa an office boy, had stolen his watch and chain. The Iwatcn, as it turned out afterward, was a very large, flashy gold watch, and the chain waa a very heavy neck chain, goiug twioe around his neck. When I met brm in London, he was dressed about ths same as he had been in Washington wbon I first aaw him. The boy who stole the watch from him had been picked- ap by him in Liverpool, . and taken along to London. The police " instituted a search after him. They fonnd that the watch had been pawned, and recovered it, and afterward suooeeded ia - arresting the boy. When the boy was in custody he oonfessed the theft, but also made a statement to the polios which caused a warrant to be issued for the Doctor's arrest The fallow claimed tu be an American citizen. .. - . - .. . - - , ' StrPatBISTkNDKT BHAW - ' aaked me about him. I told him that the boy had undoubtedly told the troth, aa tho vile character the boy gave of the Doctor waa just the character that he had a reputation for in tne United States. Up to the time I left London some three months after that incident the Doctor had refused to cslL or, at least, neglected to call for his watch and chain, though they were very valuable. It was finally discovered that be had gone to Paris, his property being left in the hands of the polios. "And what did people who came in eon tact with this doctor think of his general charao-terr "People familiar with the history of the man always talked of him as a brute, and as brutal in his actions. He was known as a thorough woman-hater 5 and as a man who never associated with or mixed wfttOromen of any kind. It is claimed tnat he was educated as a surgeon in Canada, and he was said to have been quite an expert m surgical operations. I have not heard his name mentioned in tea years. "- "And what do you think are the probabilities of his being the man who committed the Whitechapel murders murders committed, apparently, without any object in view? Do you consider that ths Doctor was insane?" "Yes. 1 da. I think a man gudty of such practices as those I have referred to must be insane; and Dr. Hammond burgeon General Hammond some time ago. when avked as to whether or not he thought that the Whitechapel murderer was an insane man, said that when tho murdnrer of those women waa discovered he would undoubtodly be found to be a woman-hater and a man guilty of ttie same practices which X hare described Dr. j Twoinbley, or Tumblety,-as- being guilty of, and tbat such men were crazy and as likely as not to murdor women.",-- ' - , ; ONE WHO KNOWS .THE GROUND. j "Mr.. James Maltland, aa old-time Chicago re porter, and twelve yeara ago'-potioe reporter for Ths Ihtbs Ocxax, who- has recently . arrived from England after a five years' stay there, waa interviewed last evening aa to the Whitechapel murders and the latest arrest He had this to say: ' ; " " . .' "What do yon know of the Whitechapel murders?" : . ,t ' "Nothing whatever In the nature of tangible evidence. But I went over the whole ground (it is not very big) and I know every inch of it The territory in which the murderer has done his work I can well describe. Take the section from State street to Fifth av-onue ' . and from Randolph to . Adams, run one main : street diagonally across the same and another on the north or south side of tt and yon have the slaughter-field of the Whitechapel murderer." ; , "Can yon give us any Idea of the location of the murders?" , . "Simply this. Spitaiflolds, Bethnal Green, Whitechapel, and the adjoining neighborhoods were all settled np by ths French refugees after the revocation of the Ediot of Nantes. These people, silk weavers by trade, transferred their industry to London, and in every room established . a , loom. - With . the introduction of steam power their . influence departed, and the old-time mansions became tenements. Such they are to-day, and their occupants are of ,the class who readily lend themselves to the machinations of the East End murderer. What was once the habitation pf respectable work-people is now the haunt of women of ill fame." - ' . . "Yon aay that yon have been through Spltal-fields and WhltechapeL What are the characteristics of those quarters?" ' "They are aui generis. ' Nothing like them ia to be found in any civilised city. ' There are thousands of Jews who run the business end of the trade. Then there are thousands mora of thugs and thieves who hang on to the skirts. . "What do yon know of the location?" Simply this. Two great thoroughfares run through a lot of eluma. The Mile End road and the Commercial road east ont np this inferno. It is a torritorv into which no policeman dare venture aingle-hanned, and none risk it The old bouses, built for occupancy by merchants or adapted for the needs of weavers, have been transferred into tenements or worse." "Than the neighborhood haa retrograded?" ' "Certainly; it haa fallen from the very beat to the vary worst When I went through it three montha ago 1 was astonished . to see the changes which even a few years bad made In it The old-time houses, once the habitation of city magnates, had become degraded to tenomeots of the lowest order. - Where onoe the leaders of faabion and society held - sway, now nothing is fonnd but tilth and misery Perhape if . you ' were - to take - what wss the old Ninth Ward, abutting upon the river, make its tenements two hundred years old, build them of brick instead of frame and piaster them over with the associations of long time, yon might reproduce ia Chicago the East End of London." - "There is another point to consider." said Mr. Mattland; "the East End is the butchers' department of London. ' It is the stock varda. as well ss the Petticoat Lane and Cloth Fair of the great city. There are- ltt.OOO slaughtermen employed in the abbatoira. This takes no account of the laborers and market -an en. The neighborhood ia infested by the lowest class of foreigners, .- largely composed of Polish and Buaaiaa Jews, who are- held in high despite by their so-called Cbnatian neighbors. . "What about the buildings? asked the reporter. ' - ' " - "The buildings are of long aca In all Spitaiflolds and Bethnal Green there is snaroelv a house but dates back 2O0 yeara. There ia a labyrinth of oo irta and alleys, of cul-da-saos and mains not to be found anywhere else In the world.

Her body was disoovered in the back yard of No. 29 il an bury street lOO yards from the place where the Nichols woman a remains were found.

On Sunday, Sept. 23, a young woman was murdered at Gateshead, near New-oaetle-on-Tyae, ia the north of England.

Ma K On O t 2 tha highly decomposed remains of a woman, shockingly mutilated, and giving evidence of having been killed by the Whitechapel murderer, was found on the site of the projected Metropolitan Opera Honse, on the Thames embankment Thia was evidently one of the "fire" to which the fiend referred when he chalked the legend over the body of Annie Chapman in Danbury street on Sept 8.

Superintendent Jeffery Honored-Congregational Club Apollo Council Reception. MRS. ADAMS' RECEPTION. It' waa a happy throng that crowed the Adams mansion, on Balden avenue, yesterday afternoon and evening, and yet withal there was a breath of sadness in tho air, for the pop alar Congressmen and his charming wifa had summoned their friends to a parting reception, aa they return to Washington . within a few days. Nearly everybody . belonging to the favored few of the North Side -was there, besides a large number of the fashionable people from the other sections of the dry. Six hundred Invitations were issued, ' and as few find it ' impossible to ' attend a reception tendered by Mrs. Adams, neirly six hundred guests ware present So the spacious drawing-rooms at No, 03O Balden avenue were crowded to overflowing, and the large halls were pressed into the service of receiving the guest. The house throughout was beautifully decorated with . flowers. Heliotropes, chrysanthemums and hibiscus blossoms vied ia their general loveliness with tuberoses and tulips. Tbe air was laden with the fragrance of a thousand roses, and hers aod there the delicate perfume of the violet crept forward from some quiet niche. Chrysanthemums, begonias, panaies, magnolia blossoms, primroses, and a dozen other varieties of tha goddess Flora's lovely children made the drawing-rooms look like a bower of flowers. Wreaths of amiiax made a fitting background for bads of tho choicest exotica, and shrubs of evergreen formed a fitting contrast to the delicate coloring of the lily of tbe valley and the hyacinths, Mrs. Adams received her guests in the afternoon between 4 and 0 o'clock, and in the evening between 8 o'clock and lOt.

Congressman Adams was the hardest worked of all, and he mnat have found the ponition of a popular Congressman among his friends hardly a sineeure.iae everybody insisted on shaking hands vigorously. - Tbe dining-room of the house was taken possession of by about ' a doawn of Kinsley's men who served an exosllent collation, while the Florentine Mandolin orchestra discoursed sweet music from behind a breastwork of aver-greenn Among those present at the reception were: Mr. and Mrs O.

To Mr. Vliet's notioo in tho programme waa appended the following, applied to Dr. Leach: "A haDpy lot be thine, for thou hast bound thy will In cheerful h omasa to tha rnla of right, Asdlovest ail, and doast good for ill. - Then Dr. Leach, replying to the toast, "The Order, B. P. tt E.," said, among other things: "My welcome is lies the sentiment of Chicago Ton ascertain here what ia beat, and then you outdo it I had no idea that I would be greeted with such a hurricane of courtesy. I must be in the very storm-couter of brotherly esteem. I am almost at a loss how best to respond to your beautiful toast. But I would say . to - the ladiea that while ' they may have some feeling against the order of Elks, fof taking thoir loved ones from the fireeide on lodge nights, they should roraembor that those lodge nights are the times when the welfare of the home is best considered.

CONORBOATIONAL CLUB. : -Romanism in America" was the theme of aa interesting discussion among the 200 members of the Congregational Club, who, instead of dining at their homes laat night, ate their monthly banquet at the Grand Paoiflo Hotel.

M. 8oott read a scholarly paper upon the Roman Catholia Church luatory, beginning with tho origin of tha church and tracing its development down to modern' timss. Mr. G. C Bnunsy then spoke on the "Catholic Church in America: Its Place, Inflnanoe, and Future, In - tha providence of Uod, he said, many things were permitted in this world which were apparently eviL - The wnoit and the tares grow together. Tbe realized Chnroh of Christ , consisted of divine things, not human opinions regarding them. Bnt regarding the Catholic Church grave questions had arisen as tf its place, influence, and future. On tho one aide it waa contended that tbe Catholia Church seriously threatened our free schools, free praes, free churches, free government, and. free opinion.- On the other hand, the Caiholie Church oontrol classes no other can reach; maintained belief , in tho miracles of Christianity; exalted religion above all earthly things; waa ths foremost foe of intemperance and held tho highest doctrine of the sanctity of marriag a. "Tne truth ia." said Mr. Bouney. "that, uncontrolled by sovereign provideoew of Uod, all evils f oared would follow, bnt He who makes even the wrath of man to praise Him has mads and will continue to make the Catholic Cuurch m America serve Hia purpoaa aod do His will. He who declared He -would make all things new did not . except even the Catholio Charch, From the Cathoiio Church must be expelled every error and falsity and oorrnpt practice, Tho parity and simplicity of apostolic days mnat bo restored. - In free America wa need not fear the threatened ids, not because the "wickedneea of the human heart would nol produoo them, nf it could, but because tha great army of the Protestant faith ia arrayed against them. The struggle to regain the temporal power ia Italy will continue to fait perhaps before the close of the present oentury tne Lord of Lords wiU, decree that tue Catholic Chnroh shall lose its temporal power and the chnroh shall find ita plaoe where the despised shadows lie. The influence of the church in America is in favor of law aod order, temperance aud morality, religion and faith, and a tendency to certain error which it is the duty of Protestant Churches to resist." . In conclusion Mr. Bonney argued for- the cooperation, as far as may be, of Protestants and Catholics. Ex-Governor bhninan, C H. Carse, U. F.

The mormng session waa devoted to matters from the committee- on spoeats and grievances. William Gleason had been expelled by 1. A.

Ths -report of the committee waa rejected and the action of the board in ex pulling Bloomer was sustained. Thero was a long dubata on thoss eases, and the v occupied tbe whole morning. . AT THE AVTMXOOJI BESMOS no act rial bnaineaa was oompietod, althouffh a " .lmA Int.i-aU tt.- ,,mTo Varinnfl - nuimportant routine matters wore referred to the proper committee, but the business that took the time of tbe - General. Assembly was of s different character. Laat week Georze F. Det wiler. editor of tne Kmiahlm of Lbor. a Chicago publication, waa in this city in his individual capacity of editor and member of the order, after which - his pp -r is named, aud ot which it ia not the official organ. On his return home Mr. Detwiler wrote as editorial, which appeared in his publication oa Saturday and was read hers to-day. Thia lead ing editorial was an attack oa ins enarscier ano position of this general aaaembly. stating that Powderlvis the ruling mind ; that the conven tion was packed in the interest of the General Master Workman; . and .that Powderly and Latch man were afraid of publicity, ana therefore both of them were ready to make peaoa and promptlv did so at the first chance. Powderlv took the floor and made a vtgoroue denial and denunciation of the whole matter. His speech was pointed and emphatic, and waa greeted with frequent and hearty applanse. He baa introduced and referred to a committee a resolution to the effect that whenever a member of the order shall, through the public press, XAXX ACCUSATIONS of misdemeanor against members and officials of ths order without first having made and sustained tboee accusations before the proper court ajX toe oruJ, no in iiiiw i.. vvs.. ,v "iw- diate expulsion by the general executive board -without trial. Mc Powderly supported this resolution in his speech and explained that ail anch matters should be brought , before the proper tribunal, and not given to ' the public a. a . Ex-Secretary Charles IL Litchraan followed 1 Mr. Powderly in another hearty denunciation of tbe editorial "and denial of iu statements. W. T. Lewie, the Master Workman of the Miners Aaaembly. waq haa been eonaidered aa opponent of and competitor for first place with l ow- derly, was equally prompt and emphatic in hia remarks, John il Lee. of Philadelphia, Master Workman of the railroaders, said that if the ( atones ware true every member of the order j wanted to know it. but they wanted to find it o 4t j in the wav provided by tbe laws of the order, j Others followed, .and all denied and denounced, J while none defended, the editor in hia criticisms. 1 The stand taken by Mr. Lewis in this case is regarded as significant, and Powderly's friends hope it means that the miners will not desert the order. There has been a great fair of that, and it will not be fully aettled until the meeting to be held by the miners at Columbus, Ohio, on Deo. 6. By a secret circular Mr. Powderly haa aaked them to remain in the order and try to add to it those miners who are out. Iu liks manner Mr. Lewis replied to Mr. Powderly. saying tho Knights of Labor mnst do something for them, if they wanted to keep their oreaeut member. .- Thar the matter . , uiuug u au.uv. w stands, aa it has for two weeks, and action here is expected to influence the Co-lumbus meeting next month, Mr. Lewis haa kept quiet and took no stand for or against the charge, but some hope his action to-day is indicative of bis probabls action, Begarding the declarations of the Hon. Thomas B. Barry, sxpeUed member of the General Executive Board, K. B. Elliott, of Bridge, Ont who is secretary of the grievance committee, says that Barry was given an opportunity to make good his assertions before that committee, out refused to avail himself of the privilege. He made a general and strong denial of Barry's statements, and further says that Barry haa not been a member of the order sinoe last April, and he gives ths law to back up his - assertions, . . - v FAILED IX BUSINESS.
