Cardinal Gi'o-bon delivered a sermon to ifly upon the result of irs observations during his te- :eiit trip to Kurope.

On the contrary be found the peo-le comf'.i tably triad t.v-1 ha; i v and contented, in spite of h heavy burden of taxation. One reason for tiiis. in the Cardinal's opinion. Is the fact that the ajiricuiiiirai districts have not been aban.lone i tor the cities. "The people of tne atricul.-ura' district -3," he exclaimed, "are not jet infected with the fever that burrs in the liearts o cur firmer?, of hurrying froo ;h eorntrj- to the city, and hastening- to st rich. This i3 a serious mis-fortorie with us. Our farmers are abandoning the lands for ihe towns. "In makinpr thee comparisons between our European brothers and ourselves," said the Crardinai, in conclusion, "it cannot be denied that we have yet some lessons to be learned from our older brothers In Europe; ther'; ate evils to be redressed, some aouscs to ccrrcct. and that there are some vulnerable spots in our political anrt social armor. Mot, after makir.e these admissions, we rave reason to be proud cf our nation's past and hopeful of our nation's future.

The senator, speaking of personal liberty, said: "The trend of the age is towards the largest liberty in every 'hing- in conduct, traoe, commerce, invention, governmental affairs, theories, thought and action. The spirit of proarress is abroad everywhere, and the restraints which prevailed in the past axes are being: cist aside.

S. Fire broke j out yesterday afternoon in the shaft of toe Osceola copper mine. Tr.e lire is still b'jrriitia, and it is believed that from 4U to 50 miners are entombed, without any possible hope of recovery. Those now known to ho among1 the missing are: Trembath, mine boss; Richard Bicket, Michael Johnson, Kichard Gren-fe!l, -Michael Schulte, John Matzcn, Wm. Bryant, Francis Landes, Alex Danft U, j John Codiip, Thomas Curtis, Robert 1 Johns, Peter Martin, Joseph Saghte, Ja. I Harrington, Wi'.liam Donald, Barney IUt-pore, Artone Scesweak, Peter Stangard and Walter Dohle, Frederick Reardon, Isaac Harlow, Mike Yoke, Isaac Mattt-?nn, Andrew Rossawick, Jame3 Wins, M. Cook, Samuel Williams. Five Poles, whose names are unknown, are also amour the missing. The fire started in shaft No. 3, on a 1-eVi.I 2,703 feet beiow the suiface. This is the fchaft used to carry the men to the surface. Ail the 2iK miners made a rush tor the lifts, but the tire was too quick for them, raid all chance of escape by that way weie cut off by fire and smoke. liuae volumes of smoke are still issuing forth from the mouths of shafts N'os. 1. 2 and 3, which shows that the awful lire is still raglngr fiercely, and the bodies if the 40 miners entombed are still lvin somewhere below tne surface without a doubt dead, suffocated by smoke and gas. Capt. P. Richards, with a gang of se ven men, went down shaft No. 5 and went about 700 feet toward No. 4 shaft, when thev had to turn and bee for their lives on account of the smoke and gas. Some of these men were very nearly overcome, only reaching the surface in time to save their lives. It is learned that the piaee where the fire caught was the worst place that it could have 'furght in the whole none, and the only place in the mine where fire of any extent could have caught. Mary of the men tlnt were working; several levels below the twenty-seventh, which placs! the fire cauidit, were Feen as far up as the eighteenth level, working thir way . up, .Several of the men '.-.o ts-caijed, claim to have iassed mi.ers on the ladders that were unable to pnveed further -n account of being pyiercome with smoke and gap. '' ' .At the lime the slurm was sounded over 2iui were undr ground, and alU ccuid bave escaped had they cse! proper precaution. se-era! n;in-trs in their flight passed-a j,roup jj seven or c:ght W10 boa SLopped to rest aua were utex - Uuretr -ptnes. i ,hx-y--eTed' " b fir r-r hurry j-t Udak X ..laaser '.to -taW to As;-ry to tne s:.iri'5u-e tbey rematked that they brtu plenty of time, au-i not oan of tiiem reached the surface. The tkips were kept running up arid down all day Saturday in order to give y r.f the entombed miuers a chfcBCe to escape if they contd reach rhe baip alive, but none esme up. Another fctteiiipt will be made to reach the men to-n".ori-ow. There is no dnnger of the be.-bes "oeinjf brrrnr, as it Is s.eneially rhoucht I ha' the ea-captd from the burnins; shafc to some of ihe drifts le-idinij to :-ihei s'rafrs, and were overcome by vas and rinnke before they cu)d reach a place of safety- This belmr the case the bodies will be recovered as soon as the fire is gotten under control and the a:--s leave the mine. The shafr his been surrounded all day by thousands of i-eople, a"! h-pmg that some sit;n or word world be irotten fr'.m the men, but have now alt returned to their tomes, fearicc the worst. All hope 1ms been gderi up by the oificlals of ever rescuing any of the men alive. The majority of the miners ho escaped dr-3 so by feeing through, a cross-cut, and in this way managed to reach another shaft, from which they were taken to the top. vyithin n short time after they had reached the surface, smcUe began r-'rlni? from, all the shafts, and i e-ir oi the m, below was entirely cot oft. The scene at the Oiieech shaft, wliere many of the men came 110, ,,as ilepiy i.i.rr-rendmg:, thousands liavinpr gathered around tin., mouth of this snai't, many women and clsU-oren staridln around lockini." for their husbands ac.d fathers. Seairchinir parties were sent down in numbers one and two shafts, tryimt to reach the men by the drift ledxe atiove the twenty-seventh level, but were cn-Rucoesslul. The mouths of th? shafts have now been a'd batteopd up to stop all drafts. When the tire started Charles Weare, a drill boy, went to the bottom of the burning shar'i and told the miners of their da titter. They iid not think it was so bad, end some of them came up the ladders to the seventeenth level, where they ibouirhr they would have time to eat lunch. They were there only three minutes when the sm became intensely dense. M'rhaei ilarririKton took out some matches to relight the candies which had core out. and the oxygen had been consumed and the candles Would not burn. Gropfner their wav in the dark they went up about 2o. feet more, when they lost hope, br.t one cf the miners, crawling- on hand:' and knees, reached the belt wire and signalled to lower the skip. Ky the sou;. 3 they knew when It was near and sitrna'led for it to stop. Then they climbed Into it, and ram? for the enyln'-er to hoist They reached the tsurface almost so Treated. Capt. P.

"I was on guard duty at the entrance to th barracks ou Flushing avenue, about a quarter past 5 o'clock in the evenina,'-' said Corporal Anthony to ii'e yesterdiv, " vhen there was a blinding flash of lightning, which was accompanied by a ter.ibla Clap of thunder.

Penalties Wilt Be Collected. Washington, T. C, Sept. S. "Yes," said Secretary Herbert yesterday, "it is true that I have given order) that work on vessels under eer.sti uction for the navy shall be expedited. The order embraces not only, the work on navy yard ships, but also the work on vessels being- built under contract. Alt have Deer, urged to Increased tiiiiKence." Cotitimilnsr, the secretary said: "The thips building- in the navy yards have b-'-ren hiKing- for years, fror a long' time Use deiay was for wai.t of-armor, but armor is row being' furnished prorupuy. Tne Texas and tne Maine, the former of which has .lust been put in cornmi.Sfc.ion, and the latter of which will be in a lew lays, reaily ought to have been in service months aso. Officials at the navy yards naturally desire to keep a regular iorce steadily employed, and the disposition is to take workmen from the ships that are building- and do repair work with them, putting them back when the repair work is comiieted. Not only have the Texas and Maine been dt'ayfd by tb's practice, br.t also the monitors, the Terror, the Monadnoek and the Pari tan. Ail these ships onpht to be now in commission, and I have ordered that they be pushed to completion. Precisely the same reasons which have operated to delay tne building of ih.ips at navy yards naturally irdur-eno-'s cor; t j a 1 i nrs. TV.ey are sometimes ieuipted to nciic'rt government work and use p?rt of the force on the government snips to do outside work as it corses in." The secretary deprecates the practice which ooiisrress .as fallen irto of relie.--insr sbip buil ieis of penalties incurred. "The contracts," he said, ".til provide penalties for failure to completo work in time. Penalties for delay have frequently been impeded upon contractors 'by the navy department, but, unfortunately, con-eress has in almost every instance, y. hen it was asked, relieved against these penalties.

Identified and Is now trap the murderer than anything else. out of harm's vay in an insane asyium, Upon this I stake my reputation as an in sanity expert, but professional reasons make it Impossible for me to reveal to the world the name or identity of the murderer." Dr. Forbes Winslow stands at the head of Btlilsh medical specialists. He is .in the medical world what Fiison is in the realm of electricity, or Hemeshoft' among yachting experts. These positive and unqualihed statements from the foremost insanily specialist of Furope at last put an end to the mystery of the Whitechapel horrors. Dr. Forbes Winslow is now in New York city attending- the International Medico-Legal congress. By special appointment he gave his entire evening; last Wednesday to a lepresentative of the World, and at his apartments in the Westminster hotel detailed the. history of his long and patient study of the murder mysteries. The distinguished specialist was called 'con to advise as to the manner of man whey was so cunningly outwitting the police day after day, and he at once determined that the Whitechapel butcheries were the ! work of a madmannot a wild-eyed maniac, but a monstor of shrewdness, caution and Inteoig-. pee. But' the murders were, as Pr. Winslow clearly pointed out, the -aork of an insane mind. He analyzed the methods, the motives and the attending cfT-cumsfar ces, and bnaily presented to the tendon police a carefully and scien tifically constructed mental picture of the man they must search for. fcOmtiu?.. Intensely. l'rtrested in the lield of research, before birr., the doctor gav his whole heart and soul to the study of the mystery, and as each fresh victim was discovered he strengthened and completed his theories as to the Olseaed mind which had perpetrated the butcheries. But the great specialist became more than a builder of scientific theories he found himself pursuing clews and searching for facts to prove 1.1s soieio.itic . 'leuuciious. He was at once a medical theorist and a practical de tcrctive. Day after day and night after night the Joe tor spent in the Whitechapel slums. Tiie detectives knew him. the lodeing- i house keepers welcomed him, and at last tne poor creatures ot tne streets came to know him. i;i terror they rusiied to him with every scrap of informs tlon which might to bis mind be of value. To him the frigtened women lexked for hope. In the presence of this great specialist they felt reassured, and they welcomed him to their dens and eagerly obeyed his commands and found for him the bits of information he wanted. It is not. therefore, surprising that it was Dr. Forbes Winslow and not the detectives of Scotland Yard who rea- ; eoned out an accurate scientific mental j picture of the Whitechapel murderer and I then stamped beyond a doubt the actual lentiucation or tire monster nimseii. To teeall the histof-5- c.f the famoo Ji the Ripper murders in the London slums it should be remembered thad there were in all ight victims. There is good reason to believe that the hand of the murderer was stayed by the revelations of Dr. Win-slow before he had finished his contemplated crusade. The first r-jirder was committed on April ::, Be. ' when Emma Elizabeth Smith 45 years of age, was found dead with an iron stake thrust through her body. This was near Osborn street, Whitechapel. No particular attention was attached to this murder except for the unspeakable mutilation committed after the victim's death. On Aug. 7, of the same year, Martha. Tabiam was murdered in George yard buildings. Commercial street, Spitaliiblda. Her body was stabbed ard cut in tbirty-r.ine places, the method of kiiling being the same rs in the first, murder. This butchery was followed in quick succession by the murder of. Mary Ann Nrchois, who was found in a court in Bucko Row. Whitechapel, v.uh her throat cut and her body partly m itriated. In all the succeeding- murders the throat of the victim was cut and the body mutilated in the san e horrible manner. The next victim of the fiendish murderer il: I.'fAl oi 10 :ni,u:.-'i i,i Miittn ri . ... , . was Annie Chapman, who was Killed atel .,,,,,1-10 ,-r iia.K -.j orptt .nifirieid on Sept. 8. Three weeks later E.iaabeth chapel. The throat was cut, but the body i not nttitnated. tne si. yer navmg evidently been disturbed in bis horrible work. On the same night, in Miitre Square. Aldgate, Gatberine JEddowes was killed and mutilated. The next murder on the ghastly record was on Nov. , when .Mary Jane Kelly was found dead in Miller's court, Dorset street, with her throat cut and body hor-rlbiv mutilated. No m'ore murders were committed for seme months, and the community was hoping that the mnrtierei's hand had been stayed for good, when Lot o'kn was again convulsed by the slaughter and subsequent mutilation of Alice MctCenzie, in Castle alley, Whitechapel. The police were completely dazed, and despitj the precautious taken and traps laid, the murderer escaped them ail. After the teccid murder Dr. Forbes Winslow formed the theory that the two murders had been committed by an epileptic maniac. . He gtiil held to his theory unfil tbe fo'.rtn, murder, basing his conclusions moon the fact that in this disease the paroxysms only occur at Intervals, and that they leave the person subject to them Id f'.ill possession of his faculties. He would thus bo able to control his diabolical impuise until a safe opportunity presented itself. Moreover, epileptic, seizures of this description are frequently accompanied bv a form of erotic frenzy, and this would account tor tho particular cla1-' of women w hich the murderer selected f -. r his victims. After the fourth murder public opinion became intensely excited over the White-shape 1 murders, and little else was talked about for days after each murder. Lr. Winslow determined to throw himself heart and soul into the matter, and wrote a letter to the press in which he set forth his theory that a dangerous hoirrt-ci-'ial Intuitu: v,as prowlme- about London. Arrests were made- by the score, principally cf people of a low- class v. ho in-bibifed the locality where the murders ! were committed. Pr. Winslow, however, refused to believe that the murders were, committed by one Of the lower clashes. lie gave R as his opinion that the murderer was In ail probability a man ot jrood position and perhaps living in the west end of London. When the paroxysm wnrcu promptvu ami 10 rus leinui ueeos had passed he most likely returue t to the bosom of his fami'y. After the fifth nnd sixth mtirders, however, he changed his views. Tim exact similarity in the method of murder and the horrible evisceration of the body fahowed too much of a methodical nature ever to beloutr to a man who committed the deeds in a fit of ep'.lept! - furor. Considerable- anatomical knowledge was displayed by the murderer, which would seem to Indicate that his occupation was that of a butcher or a surgeon. Takintr all these things trto consideration the Insanity expert concluded that the perpetrator was a homicidal lunatic goaded on to his dreadful worn by a sone of duty. Religious mania was evidently closely allied with his nomiciuai instincts, because his efforts were solely directed against fallen women, whose extermination he probabiy considered was his mission. Many homicidal lunatics -onstder murder to lie their duty. "Jack the Ripper" possibly imagined that he received his commands from God. Or. Forbes Winslow communicated his lieas to the anthorities at Scotland rd. and expressed his opinion that he would run down the murderer with the. co-opers- 1 tion of the police. He explained that luna-. t tics can frequently be caught in their own trap by humoring- their ideas. If opposed, '.owever, they bring a devilish cunntntt to bear, which effectually frustrates all efforts to thwart their designs. The expert proposed to insert an advertisement in a prominent position In all the papers, reading comewhat like this; "A gentleman who is strongly oppo.-.ed to the presence of fallen women In the streets of London would like to t o-uptrate with some one wi;h a view to their suppression." Tiie doctor proposed to have a half dozen detectives at the place of appointment, and seize and rigidly examine every one that replied to the. advertisement tor the diabolical cunning: of a homicidal lui atic. who conceives be has a mision, lenders his capture red-handed extreme-y problematical. Dr, Winslow ciaimed that a loan of this nature would be sure to lead the newspajters carefully and gloat over the resuit.i of his crime. The sav-at;e hacking and cutting of some of his victims showed that he was under the influence of religious frenzy, and every horrible detail he probably consideied redounded to his credit and proved that he was performing his mission- faithfully. About this time rumors grew into loud complaints against the liietficiency of the London police, and scores of .private citizens disguised themselves and patrolled ail night the streets of Whltecjiapel, hoping to catch the murderer. Among them v, as no less a personatre titan a director of the Bank of Fnglaml, who whs so possessed by a special theory of his own that be disguised himself as an ordinary day laborer and started exploring- the common lodging houses on the ea-r't side, clad in navvy boots, a fustian jacket with a r-d handkerchief around his seek and a pickaxe. During the month of August, is, a man was seen whose description a then given corresponds with, the murderer now in an asylum, writing on the wall under an archway. The Inscription read: "Jack the Ripper will never commit another mur ler. ' Chi October 4 Dr. Winslow received a letter purporting to come from Jack the Ripper and expressing an insane alee over t'.in hideous work he was carijiug out. Thla letter was In the same handwriting s the 'writing found under the archway J Another letter was received by ha'doeur 011 tVtober 1. also lit the same iuuntwrit- intf. whkh Informed him that the next j murder would be committed on N ivein- j ber 9. - , i In London, Mavtinler f. Is 1 .01 i Mj'ra Day, when the incoming ma-yor gives a" precession, or, as it is called, the Lord Mayor's show. The day i3 pretty generally kept as a holiday, and thousands throng the streets to look at the entertainment which the new lord mayor has provided. ' Whilo the throng was at Its thickest the. yells of the newsboys wre suddenly heard: "Another Whitecliapel murder: horrible mutilation " etc. Tha murder had been fore-told in the letter. but no clue could be obtained aa to the writer. The police worked night and day, found theories, acted upon all sorts of .suggestions, but all without avail. The thought of the fiend silently carving up his victim in the midst of a crowded neighborhood, reflecting with joy upon the righteousness of his work, when the v, hole city was engaged in feastlngs and processions of the day, caused almost a panic in the city. The mutilation of the corpse surpassed In brutality and presented a more sickening spectacle than any of the rest. The murder this time was committed In a room on the ground floor with a window in front by which a passer-by might have seen the mangled inuiy lying upon the bed. No more murdfrs occurring, the excitement gradually died away until on July 17, 1883, a woman named Alice McKenzle was found mutilated in the usual manner in a dark Whitechapel alley. The boa. -hPn found showed that the fiend had been disturbed io -... i,- - - .1 the policeman who discovered it blew bis whistle and every constable on duty in the neighborhood blocked up every opening, thus forming a cordon through which no one was allowed to pass. All contained in the cordon were examined and a house-to-house search conducted. It was all in vain. The murderer had disappeared as completely as though he ha j vanished from the earth. Letters had been received by ihe police in the early part of the year warning them that the murderous Murk would be resumed in .July. No clews, however, were obtainable from them, and the murder remained shroudcil in mystery, as -ue the others. The l"ng Interval between tbe murder of November 9. 1SS5. and July 17, 1SS!. Or. Winslow accounted for by saying that the lunatic had undoubtedly had a lucid interval, during which he was quite un-cons-ious of the horrible crimes he bad previously committed. After each mur ler had been carried out are! the lu.-t for blood appeased, the lunatic changed at once from a homicidal religious maniac into a quiet man with a perfect knowledge of wnat be was doing.

Winslow says this Is very common among lunatics of tills description, ! and the fiendish Jack the iiiplc-r probably real the accounts of the murders iu the morning papers and was as much horrified as anybody. Tbe doctor still held firmly to his theory that the assassin was a well-to-do man suffering from religious mania. Many theories had been staited and met with more or less favor. The general opinion was that the murderer was a cattle butcher visiting the slums of Whit'Hrlianel nn l committing ti murder every time; his ship came in. On the body ,f Mary Jane K-'d'y, who was murdered November 9, a woman's hat Mas found in addition !' her own. Everybody then said that ne "Ripper" was a woman.
