Shop 33 the late Catharine Street horror inspector Byrnes does not believe the current rumours. New York april 26, 1891. Dear Gazette a to Day on fifth and sixth avenues upper Broadway and other popular thoroughfares the chief topic of conversation with Church going Folk As Well As others was the recent murder and mutilation of Carrie Brown otherwise known As Shakespeare in the East Side hotel a notorious dive in Catharine Street which has. Been the scene of crimes innumerable. By most of these people the crime was attributed to the Whitechapel fiend known on both sides the Atlantic As a Jack the Ripper a but who had transferred his base of operations from London to new York. If this were indeed True there would be a fruitful Field for the villains operations in various East Side localities of this great town which Are quite As foul and inaccessible As any in the Vicinity of St. Giles or the seven dials in London. To Day new York with its More than a million and a half of population offers for the time being Safe Asylum within its Down town precincts especially to the renegades from foreign countries. But with this far from homogeneous population to Deal with new York has the Best detective Force in the world headed just now by a Man who will not rest until every resource has been exhausted iii the attempt to capture poor Shakespeare a murderer. Neither inspector Byrnes nor any of his subordinates partakes of the popular apprehension that the London fiend is really on this Side of the Atlantic and entered upon another series of blood curdling murders and mutilations. They give reasons for their belief which to those who have Given them any thought Are convincing but need not be dwelt upon at length in this letter. I will refer to one thing however one distinguishing Mark of every murder committed by Jack the Ripper which was conspicuously absent in this Case. Every London victim was found with Throat Cut and in every instance the fiend had grasped the victim with 3ns�?Tright hand and had drawn the knife across the Throat from right to left. Carrie Browne a Throat was not Cut neither was her person mutilated in the precise manner characteristic of Jack the Ripper. To Day i ascertained at police Headquarters in Mulberry Street that the detectives have Learned to a certainty who the murderer is and believe him to be in hiding in Brooklyn. As he had no Money when last seen it is not believed he can go far before being captured. The murdered woman was the widow of a sea Captain. She was born in Salem mass., where her two accomplished daughters still reside. Her husband left her a Small Fortune but soon after his death she plunged into vice and for about fifteen years has been notorious even among the most notorious characters in lower new York. P. Another Villa. Carmi Hubbell has closed a contract with builder s. B. Wilson for the erection of a Beautiful Villa residence on his romantic lot on St. John place and the cellar has already been staked out. Or. Wilson Drew the accepted plans and has secured the contract for its erection. Few builders indeed can compete with him on prices for the erection of dwellings As he is in the Street vernacular a a a Hustler and makes Money by his push and drive while others lose by the slower and More easy going methods of working. The general design of the House resembles quite closely the one the contractor has so recently built and rented to sex Burgess Jones on Cross Street. There will be some important changes in the Interior designs but As a whole there will be few if any dwellings in Norwalk of moderate Cost that will vie with it in Harmony of exterior architectural design or Interior Beauty of finish and convenience of arrangement. Our p. Deserves a Good House and an attractive Home and he will a get there.�?�. Burnes Mclaughlin. A delightful wedding was solemnized by Rev. Father Dugan last evening at the parochial residence after which a reception was Given at the Home of the Bride on Chapel Street. A Large company of friends were present.
