He laughed at her fright, assuring her she must be uiictuken, but went himself to inspect, and by tbo light of a lamp he carried he taw the dead body of a woman lying m the closet He was almost as badly frightened as wus his mother, and hastening from the he hurried to the Eldridge street police station and reported the matter to Heigt Creedea, who sent Detectives Reap and Mullane to investigate, and also noting 1 Ihe curjoer's office Mulder Mont Foul Tightly bound around the womau's head with a cord that cut a deep funow into the neck was a faded brown overcoat, ragged and well worn. It was soaked with blood und f 11 stiff The body lay ou its side, cramped and doubled up bdoause of the improvised tomb When the polic-Miim cut the curd about the neck and diew away the faded overcoat from the head and face, murder m ajl itsighastllness confronted them jr The womau's heal was literally crushed as by the blows of a heavy hammer or hatchet. Her face was covered with blood and so swollen from repeated blows that the features were no longer distinguishable A Dastardly Assault On the body were found wounds that plainly told ot a criminal assault and indi- cated the origin of the affray that ended in murder Ttiere were bruises and abrasions along the limbs, the underclothing was torn in many places, the dress wrenched from its band and some buttons torn off Both wrists bore red marks as though a strong man had sought to restrain the desperate womnn's movements That she had strug gled heroically for her Ufa was as evident as that she had been murdered. The coat, Dr Conway thought, was tied around her head after death. He thought the Woman bud bcon dead a week or ten days, but as the body was frozen stiff it may have Ihm there, for three or four weeks "To My Dear Frelda with My" The pockels of the dress were seaiched nnd they gave up a clean large linen hand- kerchief, a door and a trunk key tied to gether with a piece of red ribbon and a km ill scrap of paper The latter appeared to hate boon torn from the top of a. small pad she t, and is the only possible clew to the murder at present In the uppar right hand corner it was doted in a neat English hand, 'Feb 10, aud below was written in Hebrew, To my dear Preida, with mv" ftnd then it ended. The writing was all good and very small coat that had enveloped the head was of brown melton and was an overcoat It had satin lining and was well worn She Was u Hebrew. The woman was evidently of Hebrew origin and as nearly as could be judged from hei batt rtd condition, 26 or 30 years old She was o feet 3 iuches high aud prob- ably weighed 135 pounds. Her form is welt molded and graceful in outline and her hands aud feet are small and shapely, while her hair IK long and black and so curly as to be hist described as "kinky Her clothing, although of poor quality, was clean and neat In her ears she wore a pair of long gold earrings of Russian mako, and a small plain go'd ling encircled the small finger of her left hand. The Crime Was Committed Elsewhere. No weapon was found on the premises that affoided any clew to the murder, and the police are of the opinion that the crime was committed elsewhere and the body carried to the fapot by one or more men familiar with the cellar Was This Jacobs' Murder?

W A8B1NGTON, March 11 the senate a resolution was agreed to instructing the committee on rules to report a rule defining the extent to which senators shall be at lib- erty to revise then: remarks for publication in The Record The bill appropriating for a public building at Salt City, Utah, was passed The bill providing for an inspection of meats for exportation, prohibiting the importation of adulterated articles of food or drink, and authorising the president to make proclamation in cer- tain cases, and for other purposes, was dia- ed aud laid aside without action The educational bill was taken up, and Mr Higginn spoke m support of the bilL The bill was based upon two great illiteracy existed in, the south and that the south was not possasacd of means adequate to meet it Replying to the argument that one eltect of the bill would be to destroy the spirit of the southern people, to take away from them their natural force to emas- culate the south of its strength and vigor, he insisted that experience did not bear out that argument, and pointed to the faot that localities received state aid for common schools, nnd tbat the states themselves had received large aid m public lands from thn general government without any such bad effects following The States and the Schools. If that ai gument were seriously urged, then, in order to be logical and candid, it became incumbent on every state to give tip its school fund and to leave the support of the oommon schools to local taxation alone AH to the question of constitutionality he had no trouble about that From thn north- western ordinance of 1767 to the present time, public lands and the proceeds of pub- lic lands were granted to the new states for educational purposes. Education nnd the Negro. Mr Jones (Ark said the legislature of state had instructed him to vote against the bill and he would do so The question of its pnraage was not one of principle, but of ex- pediency He had hoped that leading negroes might be led to think soberly, to in a dispassionate way, not as the result of going to school, but as the result of oocing that the white people of the south wished to do for the colored people the very best they could Schools and school books would help to solve the race question, but they were not the most powerful agencies There would have to be a moral uplifting Cfic negro, and this would be, of necessity, a slow work For that there would have to be peace, but it seemed that the pretended f i lends of the negio did not intend that there should be peace The Great Race Problem. If the negro could be taught to think, he would learn tnat when he was moderate and conservative hid white neighbors were with him He would learn that those who undertook to incite him to murder and arson were his worst enemies, that his bestf riends were tbose that employed him, but who wuuld not be ruled by him, and that the intelligence of the country must govern it VY hen the negro had been taught that, a great kindness would have boon done him, and he would be shown the only practical way of working out the Interests of both raus at the south. In the House. March house con- curred in the senate resolution pi ovidmg for an investigation by a joint committed of the senate and house committees on immi- gration into the working of the federal and state laws relative to immigration from for- eign countries.
