THE GLASGOW HERALD, MOIXAY, SEPTEMBER W . 1888. OBB LONDON COEBESPONDEICE, 65 Flset Steeet, Sunday Night. THoh since the assassination of Mr Briggs on the North London Kailway, 24 years ago, has the mind of the metropolis been so greatly disturbed as it is to-day over the occur ence o the fourth of what may now be called the Whitechapel tragedies. The crimes of Vainwrigbt and Leiroy created notbirjg like the sensation whioh prevails ia connection with the murder oE the woman Chapman. In itself the murder is j ghastly enough, but following as it has the doing to death of the other unfortunate women in the same district and under nearly similar .circumstances, it ia calculated to excite terror as much as it occasions disgust. What description f i6 be who perpetrates these outrages, for it is nearly certain that the same hand has been engaged in them all ? The answer has not been given at the time I write, and the police, who were helpless to find the murderer of Nicholb a week ago, are now, it " to be feared, far from getting at the origin of the even more sickening tragedy of which Chapman has been the victim. It must be said in their favour that the task of detecting crime in East London is not an easy one. In the vast districts which lie beyond the city there are opportunities to a criminal for escaping discovery which exists in no ether part of the British islands. The owners of common lodging-houses, of which there are hundreds in Whitechapel and Poplar, are so accustomed to irregular habits on the part ot their customers that they take no cote of what would be the detective's best clue when a case of this kind occurs. It was shown in the Lsfroy case, too, that the keepers of private lodgings in these districts are so little acquainted with what is passing in the metropolis that the echoes of a great crime reach them weeks fter they have been heard in the remotest parts of the kingdom. Newspapers, even of the Polks 2?ews stamp, are an unattainable luxury to the famine-stricken wretches who drag out a miserable existence in the squalid tenements of Bethnal Green, and such people may even now be sheltering the murderer of Nicholls and Chapman without having heard of the crimes for which he is wanted. At the time I write the police have made an arrest, but th importance of it i3 not greatly to be relied upon. Driven to do something, they will probably take a number of persons into custody before they light on the actual criminal. In he meantime all kinds of theories are about as to who that criminal is. The popular mind in Whitsehapel has created for its own satisfaction a mysterious being, who is supposed to be a Polish Jew, and whose hideous features have been the terror of both men and women for months past. This monster ia evidently a myth of the imagination ; at all ovents the police have not found him in the flesh, It is much more likely that the real murderer is a luaatic.'with all the cunning of self-carefulness which mentally-diseased persous frequently possess. According to Dr Forbes "Winslow at least 50 murders and suicides a week arecommitted by lunatics at large in England. The present fearful tragedy, if it is ever cleared up, will no doubt be found to coma within Dr Winslow's category; Unless we presume a brute of the kind created by Mr Louis Stevenson in "The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde," we must needs think that a lunatic is responsible for the series ef outrages which have so greatly shocked and terrorised the community of East London. The Duke of Cambridge is expected shortly to visit Scotland, and will be the guest of the Marquis and Marchioness of Breadalbano at Tayn-.outh Castle for a, few days' shooting. According to private letters which have been received from Teheran in London, Sir Henry Drummond Wolff ia not proving by any means the success it was anticipated he would bo when he went thither. The writers of these letters allow both that Sir Henry has an uphill task, owing to the enormous influence which has been acquired over the raiud o the Shah by the Russian envoy, and that he has exhibited no little energy in endeavouring to restore British diplomatic prestige. The only fault found with him is that he has shown a little too much activity in endeavouring to get the Shah to fall in with his railway schemes, and that the latter is, in consequence, already somewhat tired of him. It is not improbable that ere very long Sir Henry will exchange a diplomatic life for a coloaial or Indian Governorship. While Lord Lytton's visit to London may bo explained adequately enough by domestic reasons, it will probably be found in the long run not to be destitute of political significance. It is in no way connected with the Egyptian question or anything of a diplomatic character calculated to lead to strain in the relations between France and Great Britain, for, in that case, Lord Lytton would not have required to cross the Channel in search of the head of the Foreign Office. The Admiralty, it is hinted, is the Mecca of our Ambassador's present pilgrimage; he is believed to have some interesting, not to say alarming, information to give as to the strength of the French navy. The Japanese and Chinese pictures in the White Gallery in the British Museum will, I understand, be succeeded by a number of British plate3 and drawings arranged from the Museum collections, but the Oriental exhibition will not be removed for some time to come. I have every reason to believe that there is no truth in the rumour that Lord Keay is in indifferent health, and intends to return from India before the usual term expires. On the contrary, Lord Eeay will remain his full time, and the question of who is to be his successor dew not yet been so much as considered. The new Bishop of Chester is Canon Jayne, vicar of Leeds. Five successive vicars of Leeds, commencing with Dr Hook, have now received high preferment in the form of bishoprics or deaneries is the Church. Mr Jayne is not a particularly distinguished man. He is a High Churchman, and has filled the position of tutor of Keble College, Oxford, and principal of St David's College, Lampeter. He is jaid to be a good preacher and worker. He was ordained in 1S70, and is not much over forty years old. It is a little difficult to understand the principle on which Lord Salisbury is guided in his ecclesiastical appointments. Talking of bishops, Dr Kyle, of Liverpool, is being very severely handled ia the press on account of his preference for the Presbyterian form of worship when In Scotland. He has been spending his holidays ia Perthshire, and some inquisitive person has discovered that his Lordship's episcopal gaiters and apron have been seen Sunday after Sunday in the Established Church. Is it not natural, however, that one for whom an Establishment uas done so much should be eager to express hia ipproval ef the principle of establishment in the most practical way ? The Bishop of Truro has been so fortunate as to find himself the inheritor ai a considerable sum of money by the death of a relative. It iB probable that he may now find his way back to hia diocese at an early date. The lay mhffl in England w a good deal exercised just aow by the discovery that dioceses seem to get sr with wonderfully little episcopal supervision. What with octogenarian bishops and long absences from illness and other caus3 several English sees ate apparently reduced to the con-iition in which the American colonies languished iuring the last century. It is, I am told, diffiaalfc to; decide whether th Church suffers Most from new-broom fussinesa or from neglect. !&The part takes by the ' brothers Bramwell " iu the British Association hail caused very great pleasure to their numerous friends. The sngineer, Sir F. Bramwell, is an able man in his profession ; whilst Lord Bramwell as a lawyer U thoroughly reliable and sound. It is not Jitea that brothers cjnw ft the froBt.HsaultSBe ously as these two distinguished men have done. The two books of a' very different kind that are at present most the vogue in Paris are M. Adolph Burdo's " Life and Adventures of Stanley," and M. Vladimir Soloviev's " L'Idit Russe." The former, Besides giving many new details about Stanley has au additional Interest as being the work of a man who is also an African traveller, and who was abo one o the famous American's most intimate colleagues at the Congo. The latter is a thorough-going specimen of the most justifiable kind of Russian jingoism. 1 hear that both books are -shortly to appear in English translations. M. Kenan's new work will shortly be published under the title Di-ames Philosoyhiques. The preface opens thus : " This volume is the direct mental successor of my Philosophical Dialogues. The form of the dialogue is, in the present state de I'esprii humain, the only ona that, with me at least, can convey aright the lucid exposition of philosophical ideas." Nevertheless, it may be doubted if the dialogue is any more popular in France than it is here ; and it may well be that even so consummate a literary artist as M. B6nan will find that he has toe heavily handicapped the latest outcome of his intellectual life. THE THREE CHOIRS FESTIVAL. DRLANGDON COLBORNE'S " SAMUEL." (FB03I OUK SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT. ) Hereford Sunday Night. Hereford has put on holiday attire for its triennial festival. The pretty little city on the Wye makes a great show of flags of all nations, of triumphal arches, and of masts and garlands f evergreens strung across the streets. This morning the Castle walks were crowded with Hereford folk, the ladies dressed in their best, and all being anxious to welcome their musical visitors, for as the Sunday trains to Hereford are notori ously alow, and as rehearsals begin scon after nine o'clock to-morrow morning, nearly all the artistes have already arrived. Madame Albani, while walking about the streets this afternoon, narrowly escaped a well-bred mobbing. A more than usually large number of musical visitors and nearly all the critics have also arrived, for this evening, in the Cathedral, one of the festival novelties to wit Dr Langdon Colborne's oratorio " Samuel " was produced. The work was given as a portion of the evening's service at the place at which " in choirs and places where they sing" the anthem is usually found. The service muaic likewise included the evening service in B flat by Dr Colborne, Handel's "Occasional" overture, the "Hallelujah" chorus, and other things, supported by a small string baud led by Mr Zerbini, and the three choirs of Hereford, Gloucester, and Worcester, reinforced by drafts from Bristol, Trinity College, Cambridge; St George's Chapel, Windsor ; and the Hereford Choral Society. Hereafter, at the festival proper, a force oi 50 picked singers from the Leeds Festival Choir will assist, under the command of Mr Alfred Broughton, who has arrived. In his oratorio or sacred cantata, " Samuel," Dr Langdon Colborne has modestly but wisely written well witmn tne means or ordinary charcb. eiioirs. His choruses present no difficulties ; his airs can be sung by average vocalists, and he has interspersed the whole with chorales set to well-known hymn tunes, and intended to be sung by the congregation in unison, ine words are taken trom jttoiy Writ, and have been deftly put together by the Rev. J. R. G. Taylor in such a manner that they form a story of the prophet's early career, from his birth .to the time when Samuel was unanimously recognised as a prophet in Israel. The plan adopted is a simpliSedforra of that made familiar to us by Sebastian Bach. The bass plays the part of narrator, the chorus skigs comments on the text, while the chorales indicate the reflections of the congregation. The tenor has only one song a beautiful air at the commencement of the oratorio, and before the narrative begins while ths contralto, sung by a boy to-night, is used only in a dnet with the bass set to the words, " Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth," sung immediately after the passage whieh speaks of tho growth of the .child.,, 'aa favour both with the Lord and also with men." The soprano, also undertaken by a boy to-night, has two songs. It was, however, the chorales which made most effect, adapted as they are to hymn tunes which must have been familiar to every member of the vast congregation. " St Annes," which follows the first tenor solo, is indeed of quite respectable antiquity, for traces of it are to be found in a motet by Palestrina, and it was harmonised as we now have it as long ago as the days of Dr Croft. It has often been introduced into sacred compositions, though by none with bettsr results than by Sir Arthur Sullivan in the "Te Deum" performed at St Paul's to celebrate the recovery oi the Prince of Wales. The tune "Hanover" too was used by Sir George Macfarren as a fugue subject in " St John the Baptist," and Dr Langdon Colborns employs it a3 a chorale to conclude his present oratorio. Among the other hymn tunes used in " Samuel " are those known as " Bedford " and "Narenza," and a hallelujah by Mr Hopkins. Although commendably devoidof ambition, the sacred cantata will probably become very popu-lar among church choirs, for which it avowedly is intended. the first work of consequence which Dr Colborne has yet given us, for although he is upwards of 50, and has for more than a quarter of a century been associated as organist with first-class churches, such as St Michael's College, Tenbnry, Beverley Minster, Wigan, and Dorking, and ha3 for 11 years, since the death of Mr Townsend Smith, been conductor of the Hereford festival, his compositions have hitherto been confined to church services, anthems, and part songs, ihe performance this evening was not very good, and the Cathedral was overcrowded, even to the point of danger, every gangway being blocked up, while only two of the four exits were open. GLASGOW INTERNATIONAL EXHIBITION, The total attendance at the Exhibition on Saturday was the largest which has yet been registered. The figures reached were 77,556, which overtops the records of 20th August and 16th June by 2416 and 12,676, and surpasses the highest attendance at Manchesterby nearlySOOO. The number of adults paying at the gates was 35,098, as against 19,71S on 20th August, and the number of season ticket holders 27,502, against 26,440. On the former occasion the extra attendance was chiefly made up by children, admitted at a reduced rate, and the cash receipts on ' Saturday were therefore very much larger than a comparison of the total figures for the two days would suggest. Even in the early hours of the day the building was pretty well crowded, and as the day advanced the visitors poured in at all the entrances in almost unbroken streams. There was an exceptionally large number of excursions. Special trains carrying passengers at reduced rates were run from Liverpool, Manchester, Leeds, Bradford, Carlisle, tea., besides a number of smaller towns ia both England and Scotland. Among the excursionists were the employes of the Whitehaven Colliery Company and of Sir James Bain & Co., iron and coal masters, Harrington, Cumberland. They were conveyed to the city in three special trains, and altogether numbered about 1500 persous. On arriving at the Exhibition the .party was conducted to the wnere sir jsmes isatn, TtiVtnn'c Palace Cafe ., .h!f nartner of the two companies, had caused breakfast to be provided. The whole of Supply Company, Museum Street, Bloomsbury, ANOTHER LONDON . " TRAGEDY. SHOCKING MUTILATION OF; A WOMAN, mm FOR THE MJR8ERER EXCITEMENT IN VJHiTEGHAPEL Another horrible murder ia the East of London has been added to the swelling list of brutal outrages which have been perpetrated within the last few weeks, and all of which are buried in profoucd mystery. In each ease the victim has been a woman ef the class known as s unfortunates," and the circumstances of each murder must have been of the most ferocious nature. The victim in this case was discovered about a quarter to four o'clock on Saturday morning, lying in a back yard, at the foot of a passage loading into the lodging-house, No. 29 Hanbury Street, formerly Old Brown's Lane, Spitalfields. The houso is occupied by a Mrs Emilia Richardson, who lets it out to various lodgers ; and it seems that the door which admits into this passage, at tho foot o which lies ths yard where the body was found, was always open for the convenience of the lodgers. A Mr and Mrs Davis occupy the upper storey (the house consisting of three storeys), and as Mr Davis was going down to work, at the time mentioned, he found a woman lying on her back, close up to the flight of ateps leading into the yard. Her throat was cut open in a fearful manner so deep, in fact, that the murderer, evidently thinking that he had severed the head from the body, tied a handkerchief round it so as to keep it on. It was also found that her body had been completely ripped open, and her bowels, heart, and other entrails were lying at her side. The nenaish wore was completed ;by the murderer tying part of the entrails round the poor victim's neck and head. The place on which she was lying was found covered with clots of thick blood. 'Che supposition was that the poor woman was murdered outside and taken into this yard by those who knew the place well. This is upheld by the fact that spots of blood were lying thick in the narrow passage leading trom ttie street into tae yard, ana tne blood marks around where the body was found must have been caused by its being deposited there, there being no signs of aDy struggle having tasen place m tne vicinity. Davis (the lodger who found the body) imme diately communicated with the police at Com mercial Street Station, and Inspector Chandler and several constables arrived on the scene in a short time, when they found the woman in the condition described. Even at this early hour the news spread quickly, and great excitement prevailed among the occupants of the adjoining houses. An ercited crowd gathered in front of Mrs Richardson's house and also around the' mortuary in Old Montagu Street, where the body was quickly removed. As the corpse lay in the rough coffin, in which it had been placed in the i mortuary, the same coffin in which the unfortunate Mrs Nicholls was put, it presented an appearance which could not but evoke pity for the victim andiudignation at the brutal murder to an extreme degree. The body is that of a woman about 45 years of age. The height is five feet exactly. The complexion is fair, with wavy, dirk browa hair. The eves are blue, and two teeth have been knocked out in the lower jaw. The nose is rather large and prominent. The third finger of the left hand bore signs of rings having been wrenched off it, and the hands and arms were considerably bruised. Emilia Richardson, the woman who rents the house, stated in an ; interview with a reporter that the murder was beyond all description in its horrible details. Deceased had laced-up boots and gstriped stockings. She had on two cotton petticoats, and was Otherwise respectably dressed. Nothing was found in-her pockets but a handkerchief and two small combs. The excitement in the vicinity is intense, and innumerable rumours are fljing about. One report has it that a leather apron and a long knife lias been found near the place where tho body was, belonging, it is said, to a man whose name is unknown, but who is surnamed "Leather Aprou," and evidently known in the district. A further report states that another woman was nearly murdered early in the morning, and was taken to the hospital in a dying condition. Several persons who were lodging in the house and who were found in the vicinity when the body was found were taken to the Commercial Street Station, and were closely examined, especially the women who were last with deceased. The police authorities are extremely reticent, owing to the fact that any statement might get out which would help the murderer to elude detection. There can be little doubt now that this latest murder is one of tho series of fiendish atrocities on women which have been going ou within the past few months, this making the fourth case in this short time in the same district. It is thought that in this case the victim must. have been murdered outside or in a neighbouring house, and carried into this dark yard, where the murderer evidently thought the body was safe from discovery for some time. There is little evidence to show that the murder was committed on the premises where the body was found, as the marks of blood were all found in one place viz., where the police discovered the body. The only ether marks are those found in the passage close to the Sight of steps, and these may have been caused in removing the body to the mortuary. The police, however, ia this case have more facts and evidence to go on, and they are sanguine that the murderer will be soon found. Looking at the corpse, ao one could think otherwise than that tho murder had been committed by a maniac or wretch ef the lowest type of humanity ; indeed, we should have to go to the wilds of Hungary er searoh the records of i rench lower peasant lite before a more siciu-ing and revolting tragedy could be told. The woman was known among her coiapaniens as Dark Annie, and gave her name as Emily Annie Shifney, but it is not yet known whether this was her correct name. She was a prostitute, and had been recently living at a common lodging-house at Dorset Street, which is near by the scene of last night's atrocious crime. Deceased formerly lived with a sieve maker in the East End of London as his wife. The advisability of employing bloodhounds to trace the perpetrator of the crime has been eagerly discussed 'by the inhabitants ef the district. It is considered, however by experts that the time has gone by for such an experiment, and it is pointed out also that in the case or the Blackburn murderer, who was discovered by such means, the circumstances were different, and that the present case does not admit of that. Mrs Tiddymont, wife of the landlord of the Prince Albert public-house, states that at seven o'clock this morning she was standing in the bar talking with another woman when there came in a man whose rough appearance frightened her. His hat wae over hia eyes, and he asked for half a pint of ale. As soon as he saw the woman in the other compartment watching him he turned his back. MrsTiddymont then noticed that there were blood spots on the back of his i right hand, sue also noticed tnat his snirt was torn. As soon as he had drunk the ale, which he swallowed at a gulp, he went at. It was currently reported in Hanbury Street that on Saturday morning the following paragraph, written in chalk, was seen upon the wall of one of the back gardens there, and four persons distinctly stated they had actually seea tho writing. The words are : " I have now done three, and intend to do nine more and give myself up, and at the same time give my reasoas for doing the murders." Whether there is any truth in the matter remains to be seen. James Wiltshire and Alfred Henry Gun-tborpe, two milkmen in the employ of the Dairy whether he has any connection with the murder is slippsrmaker by trade, but . does not work.

He, however, threw these on one side, fell upon tht woman knife in hand, and inflicted various stabs on her head and her forehead, neck, and fingers before h was again pnKed off. At this juncture the polico arrived, arrested the maG, and after a while had the woman cttnveyed on a stretcher to the polics station in Commercial St-rest, where "she was examined by the . divisional surgeon.

Sha might have served the woman ; indeed, she had bean told by those who know her that sha had, but she had no recollection of it, and certainly could not say whether tha unfortunate creature was accompanied by a man. YESTERDAY IN WHITECHAPEL, The Press Association, telegraphing last night, says: To-nightjHanbury Street, Whitechapel, was in aa all but impassable state owing to the crowds which had assembled in ihe neighbour hood of the scene of the tragedy. - Some thousands of people passed through tbe locality during the early part of the day, and the police authorities at Commercial Street Police Station had a number f conatablee drafted from other parts of the metropolis, and these as eyening advanced were busily occupied in keeping the people moving. The public excitement as the day advanced appeared rather to grow than to diminish, and strong 'evidence of the fact was apparent. Not only did large crowds of the poorer classes loiter in the vicinity of the spot where the murder was committed, but a number of the more well-to-do were to be seen either gazing with awe-stricken faces at Mrs Richardson's house, ia rear of which the body of the victim was found, or endeavouring to glean some additional particulars as to the circumstances of the tragedy. Dp to late iu the even-; ing the police at Commercial Street were unable to say that their investigations had been attended with success. The Deptford police made a communication to the effect fcha.t a man had been arrested by them under suspicions circumstances. On receipt of the information at Commercial Street, Inspector Chandler at once started for Deptford, and at ths time of telegraphing he had not returned with his charge, but was momentarily expected. The lapse of a few hours will suffice to show whether the man ia custody at Deptford is in any way connected with the crime. The police authorities at Scotland Yard' and Whitechapel are fully conscious Qijthe difficult nature of the task they have before them of identifying any particular individual with the series of anoallins crimes. "God knows," said ah official to a-reporter, "but we may have another to-night, though we nave men patrolling tne whole reeion of Whitechapel and Spittalfields." . That the police are putting forth every possible effort there caiba no doubt. To-night there is a larae force on duty. One-third of the men are ia plain clothes, and even these entitled to leave of absence are retained. That the public ; are anxious to second their efforts is testified : by the presence on the record at Commercial Street of no less than 50 personal statements made with the object of assisting in the work of identification. One officer has been occupied many hours in writing these statements, and up to nine o clocE to-nignt taey were oeiug Buppie-raented by others. Xha police are not permitted to make public the written evidence, if evidence it can be called. It is doubtful if it will ultimately prove of much-value ; but our special representative, in pursuing his investigations to-night, heard in presence of the police a statement whieb, per haps, ought noc to ee aitogetner aisinissea unworthy oi notice, in formant was a young woman named Lyons. She stated that at three o'clock this afternoon she met a strange man in Dean Street, one of the worst streets in the Itast Lnd of London. He asked her to go to the Queen's Head Public- house at half-past six and drink with him. Having obtained from the young woman a promise that she would do so he disappeared, but was at the house at the appointed time. While they were conversing Lyons noticed large knife in the mans trousers pocket, and called another woman a at-' tention to tho fact. A moment later Lvons was startled by a remark whieh the stranger addressed to her " You are same style of a woman as the one that's mur dered, for it, and ha was sent up for seven days. He has no settled place of residence, but has slept sftenest in a fourpenny lodging-house of the lowest kind in a disreputable lane leading from Brick Lane. Tha people at this lodging-house denied that hs had been there, and appeared disposed to shield him. " Leather Apron's " pal, "Mickeldy Job," was in the house at the time, and his presence doubtless had something to do with-the unwillingness to give information.
