S. Murphy in the romantic Irish drama entitled -*K rry (Jjwr." I hose, who did not go missed the richest dramatic treat OF the season, those who did go were delighted, and there was every reason for their being so. The greatest players are those who are the most natural. Straining after effect is rarely rewarded. At least, if 00 2 tO 2 00 200 2 00 2 00 2 00 2 there is straining in acquir­ ing power, there must he no apparent straining when the actor or speaker is before the public. No doubt Mr. Murphy has worked carefully to master and perfect the character and that lie has succeeded, crowded houses and financial prosperity testify. "Kerry GOW" opened a new path in a rich lield of fancy, which has only yet been partially explored.

In the unfolding of the plot we learn .™a« pTi„„ HN'T tvnH HCRO' to the "light of as the needle to the pole.

Her victims were all men, ifturdered for money, but the corpses were mutilated, and as the excised portions were never found, the people of the vicinity came to tbe conclusion that they were used in some of the heathenish ceremonies performed by the thoroughly abandoned woman. Tbe nnmo of Patty Cannon was one of horror to a whole generation of Americans She kept a coun ry hotel in eastern Pennsylvania, and after murdering several persons for money, appears to have killed from mere hatred of mankind. In her case sexual perversion undoubtedly had much to do with it. The life of Sophia Hamilton, who kept a hotel on one of tbe roads from New York into Canada, was very similar. The recent cases of Uuiteau and Jesse Pomeroy are familiar to all. THE BUBKE AND BABE KVBDEBS. "Burking" is an adjective in our language which immortalizes the infamy of one man nnd so strong an effect did his crimes have upon the popular mind that after the lapse of sixty years one may still hear occasionally of a ner'vpus and ignorant person who is afraid of being "killed and cut up by the doctors^' Among the southern negroes this fear at tijries rises to a regular panic. Williapi Burke was of County Tyrone, Ireland, an4- VViUiam Hare, a smotuered in the early morning in the usual way, with a heavy feather pillow, and that night the body was taken to Dr. Knox, who paid the usual Bum for it. Margaret Patterson, a young and exceedingly haudsome girl, was decoyed to the home of Burke's brother, and there dispatched. She was carried four hours after death to Dr. LLiiox, who paid £8 for the body. Aa old womau and her grandson, a deaf mute were tho nest victims. Dr. Knox paid the assassins £10 for the two subjects. As chance customers at this time became rare, the regular lodgers were now requisitionized, and a man known as "Joseph the Miller,' who was well connected and had once possessed considerable means, was smothered during the night and his body sold for £10 to. the omnivorous Dr. Knox. Shortly afterwards Hare fell in with a woman of the town, enticed her to bis house, murdered her single handed and carried tho body round to the doctor, who gave him £8 for it. A cinder gatherer known as "Effy" was induced by Durke to enter a stable occupied by Hare. Here she was dosed with whisky. She fell asleep on a truss of hay and the two villains smothered her in the usual way. For this body they received £10. One night Burke encountered a policeman dragging a half drunken woman to the lock up. He induced the officer to release her, promising to see her safe home to her lodgings. The wretch took her round to Hare's house, where they speedily smothered her and sold the body for £10. Their next victim was a half witted boy. I And then, horrible to relate, they murdered Ann MacDougal, who had come on a visit to her cousin Helen, Burke's pretended wife. They next killed two poor women, Mrs. Haldane and her daughter Peggy then Mrs. Hoster, their washerwoman then a country woman named Hurd, and finally Mrs. Docherty. And only one of the four fiends was banged. Hare and his wife managed to get out ot the country alive, though bands of the poorer sort of people were on the watch to kill them they went to Australia, where she die| a natural death, and in 1855 he RETURNED the value of true love, and how the "IAN,1TOTALLV »BL' TO ENIUL TO Edinburgh, A broken down old BUND- IT WAFR yirfT 4 movMnents that TM arrest for a long time, creating a regular panic. The villain who threw vitriol some years ago, and the men or boys who slyly pinch, or scratch or cut when they can encape arrest, are well known cases, and it is more than likely that this frenzy also jrows by indulgence, and that if undetected tbe perpetrator would go from wounding to murder I THE ONCE NOTED BENDERS OF KANSAS. Scoumnan latter hajl a wife, and the former JJVed with a woman named Helen MacDougaKand these 1 four kept'ft low lodging house in outskirts of Edintjirrgh. An old man died while a lodger in their hotel I they sold bis body to t#» medical college I £7 tor 10s., and this suggested such an easy way 1 of making money that in a lew months they murdered and disposed of no less than sixteen I persons. After the natjfl^l death and disposal of the lodger BurJra'used to frequent tbe low public houses of np neighborhood, and when he found some fljhfarer without a home or the means of oifaining a shelter he would offer a lodging. The victim was industriously plied with liquor till he or she became unconscious. Then'the two would fall upon the victim and Hare usually choked the poor wretch to death. The two women were undoubtedly privy to the crimes, but they invariably left the room while the murders were being perpetrated. TBE F1BST OF THE CRIHES. The first of the series of sixteen murders was committed in January, 1838, and the last, that of an old woman, Mary Docherty, in October of the same year. This last crime led 1 to the detection of the murderers, their arrest and the trial, conviction and execution of Burke. The woman MacOragal was acquitted. Hare saved his neck by turning king's evidence, and his wife also was used as a witness in the case. The murder of ili-s. Docherty was discovered by a Mr. and Mrs. Gray, who lodged in Hare's house." They heard a noise as of quarreling and lighting after they had retired one night and the next day Mrs. Gray found Mary Docherty's body concealed under a heap of straw in the Hare's bedroom. After Burke's conviction he made a full confession. The first victim was one Abigail Simpson, a aged woman, enticed to the house by Hare's wife. She was induced to drink, went off'in a dead sleep and wus suffocated in the early morning. Then followed an Englishman, name unknown, who came to lodge at Hare's, The body, liko the preceding one, was sold to Dr. Knox for £10. Then came a nameless old womau who took a night's lodging by chance in the murderer's den. She .was SOME years be- E, and carrying a tin cup to receive the contri- his eye" butions of the benevolent When he found his head as a fast trotter in this community for the last century, behaved with the dignity of an old' circus horse.

Even old "Romeo," who lias held up UOVER set upon lie would in any city smith shop".

J* «v for ur totally devoid or ail ooneiaeooe end of every moral TRYING THE BLOODHOUNDS. Sir Charles Wanm Lets the Dogs Chaee Him as aa Hsperlment. The London police have engaged In what looks to Americans much like comedy, that Is in "testing* the bloodhounds. The correspondent of The Mew York Bun gives this aocount of It: was barely daybreak, and the frost lay thick upon the grass, when War ren's stalwart form showed the way f) the place of trial, followed by a few experts, one holding a pair of dogs in the leash. SIB CHARLES' ENTHUSIASM. Sir Charles, in a lit of enthusiasm, offered himself for a quarry, and started off at a good swinging trot. He was soon lost to sight, and then different policemen crossed bis track. The dogs were laid on, a worked surely but slowly along until they arrived at the spot where the first policeman had crossed the traiL Here the doge were at fault for a time, but soon took up (be scent again, the ®urSh®» wbo start. The dogs did well for a while, but finally were halBed, owing to the number of people who crossed the traiL Three more courses were tried, but in only one did the hounds succeed in catching their BLOOD ATONEMENT. "The law of blood atonement is written on the constitution of the human when utterly perverted by a sense of intolerable wrong makes of the man such an ogre as this slayer of women. There are many kinds of vampirism, but they all cluster around this one idea of motiveless mutilation of bodies, No one would do the deeds of this monster unless dominated by the law ot blood atonement mingled with an evil principle that then takes the form of demoniacal possession. "The law must furnish by punishment some motive for the man to resist. The taking possession of a mind is a gradual process, a consequence of willful sin against nature's law, or weak yielding. Tbe whole opens up such a wide field of metaphysical study and religions suggestion that you not answer any question in one word, yes or no. It is yes up to a certain point and no beyond it." Dr. Hammond is also emphatic in bis opinion that such murderers should be executed, and alienists generally are adopting the view that a monomaniao is often morally responsible for his condition and that the responsibility can be fixed. And, adopting the opinion of medical men, the London police now have a theory that satisfies them and claim to have a particular individual in view, and to possess corroborative evMeooe In support of their theory. He hju MSB repeatedly tracked and traosd, and is a well known and wealthy resident of Urosvsnor square, the most fashionable quarter of London.

Sir Charles again huntod nwm, taking 1,200 yards m»n, ALTOGETHER the aiM then they licked and fondled him as an old .friend. KOT D»SATISFACTORY. Considering that the dogs were following the soent of a man alone, and that the moratag was extremely had for following any trwl, the result was not altogether unsatitfactory. If the Whitechapel murderer, on itfS8 next crime, smears himself cwTies off any portion Of the body, it is believed thtdogs will hunt him down. Sir Charles WarrenjJi his tight military dress, and puffing and-Wowing with his exertions, did not look scvery dignified Commissioner, but if faffwent back to ScotIftlMI Vatwl AilAva •. ... land Yard hot and with the most novel made a good start wii was very mad when came out with reports ings, which doubtless noted by the murderer. it was certainly that he had y's work. He -ening newspapers his morning's doalso read and PROBABLY A LUNATIC. The Opinions Law of of Experts—The Atonement, Professor Ordronaux, of Columbia College Law school, author of standard works on the legal bearings of insanity, and for nine yean state commissioner of lhnacy for New York, gives this opinion: IS THE LONDON HEBD HBUimf "The murderer is a lunatic, of course. There is no doubt of that,. His very cleverness in eluding the police might be a proof of it- ®e devilish cunning and resource of some maniacs is marvelous. The question is, what frightful nightmare of fg thi» that possesses himf When he is caught he will speak out he wont hesitate to give reasons as far as he is able. "Meanwhile, we can only guess. But cases of the kind have not been so rare that we need guess at random. The vampires of the middle ages that haunted the cemeteries and dug up the bodies of women to tear the flesh ftom their bones were doubtless men of his caliber. They were a very real terror to their time, not at all creatures of an excited fancy. At times their madness became fairly epidemic on the continent of Europe. The reason whv the nevchology of the middle ages presents many more such cases than our day is that then they ran about unhindered, while nowadays such lunatics would be veiy soon arrested. "Science may ridicule the idea of cal possession. Those who deny that there is anything but matter will aee no proof to the contrary. Proof expires with the conditions of matter you are examining, and whan you drop the subject as a mental and take it up as amoral question you tread on ground in a senses It is true that you cannot find a demon with a microscope or figure it out by tables of logarithms: and yet it is not irrational to suppose that a distinct evil agency does dominate the human mind under circumstances when it is overthrown to the last degree and has lost its personal and subjective identity. When insanity, originating in a perversion of the sexual instinct, passes beyond bounds within which it can be explained on conditions of physical deterioration, it is permissible to recognise a superhuman cause as tbe controlling power in the domination of human conduct This is demoniacal possession. Granted that the only foundation for belief in it is the utterly man and illogical conduct of the victim, yet if he alone of ten thousand lunatics similarly affected goes this length, we shall have to assume either that be Is a being differently formed, which we cannot do, or that some uew agency is discovered in his case, as in that of this London murderer. Here is where 'possession of an evil spirit' steps in to supply the explanation. It seems to ms as admisible in this last emergency as Ahe law of gravitation. Nobody sees it, yet nobody doubts it. We all see its results/ •it*- W THE TIMES. THE LOI His Ninth and Latest Horrible and Fiendish Murder. STILL BUTCHERING FALLEN WOMEN The Murder Is Continuation of the Series Whleh for aWhile Was Interrupted for Isok of Opportunity or Inclination- There Seems to Be No Question as Regards the Insanity of This Whitechapel Murderer—He Is Evidently Making War Upon tr-Uversal Evil by Insane Methods, Another horrible murder has occurred in the East end of London. A woman's body, hacked and cut intopieoes, was found in Dorset street at 11 a. m., Nov. 9. The appearance of the remains was frightful, and the mutilation was even greater than in the previous cases. The head had been severed and placed beneath one of the arms. The ears and nose had been cut off. The body had been disemboweled, and the flesh was torn ftom the thighs. The womb and other organs were missing. The skin liad been torn off the forehead and cheeks. One hand had been pushed into the stomach. The victim of tbe Spitalfields murder was. like the rest of the Whitechapel victims, an abandoned woman. She had a husband who was a porter but she lived with him only at times. Her name is believed to be Lizzie Fisher, and she was nicknamed Mary Jane. The physicians who viewed the corpse reserve their statements for the inquest which will follow. The murder is undeniably a continuation of the series which was for awhile interrupted for the want of opportunity or inclination. In. this case, the murderer worked surely, as is made evident by the fact that the killing was done in a room fronting on the street, on the ground floor, and within a few yards of a temporary police station, whence officers issued hourly to patrol the district. The most annoying feature of the case is that the arrest of a number of innocent persons on suspicion will have to be repeated. The opinion of Archibald Forbes and Mr. Window that the assassin is a homicidal maniac is confirmed by the latest murder and the prediction has become general that another murder will soon follow. The brutality of the mutilation to which the last body was subjected surpassed all the others. There is, of course, no question as regards the insanity of the Whitechapel murderer. In the time of the bitter vendettas of the Middle Ages, in savage border wars between the whites and Indians and among the cannibalistic Polynesians similar murders halve been committed with equally cruel mutilation by men whose sanity could not be questioned. But in this age and in the very center of modern civilization there could be no incentive to such horrible crimes in the breasta of sane men, however unruly their passionB Semonstrate i- or revengeful their na tures. The methods of homicidal madness are very diverse, and often difficult of analysis. Sometimes it is a melancholy mother who destroys her children under the delusion that she saves them from some threatening disaster, or because a voice commands her to sacrifice them. Sometimes it is some moral imbecile who delights in torturing innocent people to death. Often it is the victim of aicohol who "runs amuck," stabbing right and left through a crowded thoroughfare. The Whitechapel murderer is actuated lw one of two motives. He inn* to satisfy a religious fanaticism or because of a perverted sexual instinct, or there may be a combination of the two impulses. The fact that his victims have been selected from the lowest classes of immoral women in London certainly in clines one to the opinion that his desire is to immolate these creatures upon the altar of religion, his delusion being that they are the chief emmisaries of the devil in the Bpread of evil. Under the fiendish penal code which he has established it seems necessary to kill and mutilate these poor creatures. If this be really his sole imperative idea, however, it wul be the Only example of its kind in history. The religious paranoiac is not so apt to concentrate ms reforms upon one vice alone. He usually makes war upon universal evil, but bv insane methods. He harangues audiences, announces himself as a prophet perhaps, is constantly quoting the Bible to his associates, and orten incites rebellion and riot, John Thorn, who caused the bloody Canterbury riots in 1883, is an example in point of a religious paranoiac. The fact that women of this class are selected should not be taken too seriously. That he selects women is a more important point. That they should be of abase type is quite as likely to be due to the necessities of the ewe. They are the only women hew induce to follow him into dark corners ln the dead of night. When, on the other hand, the motive is excited by pervemon of the sexual instinct with canmbalistic or similar insane propensities, the crimes are limited to women, and ttie lunatic is more secretive. Andreas Bichel murdered young girls, cut open their warm bodies, and ate their quiver mg flesh. The Westphalia murders, a few years ago, with most shocking mutilation of the bodies, of which more roan twenty young women were the victims, ate of similar origin. Only recently in Texas there was a series of butcheries of young women, all perpetrated under circumstances so peculiar as to point to a homicidal lunatic as their author. The remarkable cunning of the Umdon paranoiac, his secretiveneas, his ability to elude the vigilant officers of justice in one of the most crowded quarters of the globe, his careful selection of victims of one sex, the singular mutilation to which he subjects them, all indicate that he is actuated by a motive partly religious perhape, but more than likely for the devilish gratification of erverted instincts, and at the mm* «ma him to be one of the most daring and atrocious homicidal lunatics of which medical jurisprudence has any record.
