THE SCHAETON TRIBUNE TUESDAY MORNING. DECEMBEK 11, 1894.
WOMAN STAB IN BLACK
London Is Terrorized by Another
A VEILED FEMALE AT LARGE
Tho Mysterious Person Has ' Already
Wounded Several Ladies at Dusk-Ex-perlenec
of Two American Women
Who Sought Information.
By the United Press.
London, Dec. 10. A literal reign of
terror prevails In one of the most
fashionable quarters of London by rea
son of a series of strange crimes com
mitted by a mysterious veiled woman
She has a mania to stab othors of
her sex, and has appeared no less than
five times within a week In a district
less than half a mile square. Although
scores of detectives are lying in wait
for her, she is still at large. In each
case she approaches her victim with an
Inquiry about a certain street. Her
Hist victim lost an eye and the second
iwas stubbed in the neck, narrowly es
caping a fatal wound.
The fear of her is now widespread,
bo that others she accosted fled before
she could strike. Every stranger who
now shows herself In that vicinity be
comes an object of fright. Two Ameri
can women who were making calls just
after dusk yesterday stopped to in
quire their way of four women who
were approaching. Before they had
time to utter two words of their ques
tion the four women turned and lied.
This extraordinary power to put Brit
ish maids and matrons to flight by a
word so amused the American women
that they tested it once or twice more,
With the same result.
Some believe that this mysterious wo
man stabber ja a small man in disguise,
as all describu her voice as gruff, but
the police believe her to be a woman
undoubterly insane. There is no dlrec t
connection between these crimes and
young Saunderson's murder of an aban
doned woman In the same Kensington
district, but certain experts in mental
diseases believe tho epidemic of violent
crime in London can be traced to a
single source the great public agita
Ition over the mysterious South End
murder for which Read was hanged
BROKER KELLAM CONFESSES.

By the United Press.
New York, Dec. 10. Broker David L.
Kellam, who, with Henry M. Halgh, a
Bowery lawyer, was arrested on com
plaint of H. E. Simmons, of Tacoma,
Wash., for fraud In note transactions
Involving $S5,00l, has made ft confession.
He said that a Mrs. Schneider, of Coro
na, had fonty-clghtlotsin Newark, N. J.,
which he traded for $6,000 worth of the
motes, and the Pan-American company
got two notes for $3,500, which it traded
for $35,000 worth of its stock.
Kellam further claimed that he met
Simmons in July, and an agreement was
entered into between them by which
$100,000 was to be raised on Simmons'
notes, payable to him, and as security
for which he was to give Simmons a
mortgage of $150,000 on 40,000 acres of
land in West Virginia.
The two men under arrest were
charged, on complaint of Simmons, with
changing the dates in several of -the
notes, and with having conspired to de
fraud the complainant. They were
held in heavy bail for trial.

Wllkes-Barre, Pa., Dee. 10. Superin

Wilkes-Barre Coal company, was vic

children were dead at home, and that
they had no money to bury them. The
men wanted the money to have some
Lawall became Indignant when he
found out the truth, and at once caused
the men's arrest.
The average freight rate per ton per
mile In 1888 viaa 1.001 cents, while for the
year ended June 30, 1894, it was .8(10 cents.
Mine Inspector Williams, of Wllkes

He will be a candidate for re-election.

On June 30, 1894, there were 156 railroads
In the hands of receivers. The mileage
operated by these companies was about
39,000 miles, representing a capitalization
of upward of $2,500,000,000, or 25 per cent.
Of the total railway capital of the country.
The Record claims that Senator Will

the biggest of the individual operutors if
rheumatic gout, or any gouty or rhcu
matic affection whatever, has its surest
remedy in the Carlsbad Sprudcl Salt
There's nothing so successful in clear
ing out the excess of uric acid in the
blood. That has been proved in hun
dreds of years and in thousands of
cases at Carlsbad.
So with any of the ailments brought
on by sedentary habitsdyspepsia, in
digestion, perverted nutrition, constipa
tion, Carlsbad cures them, and cures
them permanently. '
But the best way is to prevent them.
A little Carlsbad Sprudel Salt taken
when you suspect any trouble, will
keep your stomach and liver and bowels
and kidneys in perfect order.
Take only the genuine imported
Carlsbad Salt solidified and bottled
at the Sprudel Spring with signature
of "Eisner & Mendclson Co., Sole
Agents, New York," on every bottle,

In the Record's opinion, Is one of the keen

The Carbondale Traction company has
just received four new coaches. In color,
says the Anthracite, the general effect is
of white and yellow. White mahogany
is the woodwork tlnish, and the seats are
of braided rattan, upholstered on the finest
steel springs. The Burgess curtains go
to make up an equipment that is simple,
tasteful and complete.
The general condition of the Iron and
steel trade is about as it was expected
to be during the lust month of the year
dull and monotonous, with some slight
weakening in prices. The feeling in re
gard to the future is hopeful, however,
although there Is an impression that it
may be necessary to wait two or three
months before there is any distinctly bet
The anthracite coal sales agents at their
recent meeting not only agreed to the ad
vance in the price of coal, but also put up
tho price of freight rates on barges. Tills
part of the advance has been kept quiet.
Tho large rate from New York to Boston
is now CT. cents per ton, and from Phila
delphia 90 cents. The price prevailing be
fore the advance was w cents trom JNew
York and 75 cents from Philadelphia.
At the request of stockholders of the
Lehigh Valley railroad who are opposed
to the re-election of President Wilbur, and
who have expressed the intention of nom
inating John Wunamuker for the oliice,
the directors of the company have caUseil
to be prepared a copy of the company's
stock list, which la open to ull stock
holders. The names and addresses of the
stockholders are given, but the amount
of their respective holdings Is not stated.
The Interest In the company of those w ho
are opposing the present management is
not believed to be large, and the re-election
of President Wilbur is generally con
ceded. Mr. Wunamuker liuu not thus far
consented to allow his namo to be used in
The coal trade today Is In much better
condition than some time back," says the
Wllkes-Barre Record, "und though prices
are easily 25 cents less than the circular
there Is every reason to believe that such
will not be the cose after this week un
less, of course, a green Christmas is in
store for us. Tho 'gentlemen s agree
ment' ratified twice in succession is be
ing observed to the letter, though the
presidents huve not openly agreed to
them. There is no cutting and no over
production going on and the new year w 111
open up in pretty good shape. It is said
Mi-. Walker, the new Coxo manager, Is
very conservative. If so, what is to be
como of the recent aggressive spirit? Up
to December the tonnage for 1K1U was
just 1,591,872 behind that of 1893. Let tin
hope the 'better feeling' has come to stay."
Amen, brother; amen!
The Phlludcphla Stockholder is ready
to stake Its reputation on this one pre
diction: "Neither Mr. Klce nor Mr. Wan
amaker, cither singly or by a combina
tion, can defeat Mr. Harris in the coming
election. The latter has the support of
the Olcott committee, which has now de
posited with It upward of 200,000 shares of
the stock. In addition, proxies represent
ing over 100,000 shares have already been
given him; and while it Is possible to give
a later proxy to the opposition, It Is not
likely many stockholders will avail them
selves of the privilege. Mr. Harris,
therefore, could go Into an election for tho
Reading presidency today with at least
300,000 shares, and, we believe, It will be
simply impossible to concentrate any sim
ilar amount of slock against him be
tween now und 'election day.' no matter
whom the opposition might name."
On June 30, . 1893, there were 170,401.07
miles of line In the United States, being
an Increase during the year of 4,897.53
miles. The number of railway corpora
tions was 1,890, being on increase of 8
over the previous year. The tendency to
ward consolidation is shown by the fact
that 28 roads were merged, 20 roads were
reorganized, and 16 rouds consolidated
Into other systems. There were 42 oper
ating companies having a mileage In ex
cess of 1,000 miles. The capitalization of
the roads reporting was $lo,f0j,23a,41o.
equivalent to JI13.421 per mile of line. Tho
number or passengers carried w as b'js.W),-
612, and the number of tonB of freight car
ried was 740,119,482. Tho gross earnings
were $1,220,751,874, the operating expenses
$827,921,299, leaving net earnings of $392,830,
575, which is equivalent to $2,314 per mile
of line. Adding to this the Income from
other sources to the amount of $149,649,615,
gives us te amount available for the pay
ment of fixed charges and dividends $512,
482,190. From this there were paid $131,-
126 as fixed charges; dividends and
other payments from net Income, to the
amount of $102,941,289, leaving a surplus of
$8,11045. The number of employes was
873,602, being an Increase over the pre
vious year .of 52,187. The number of em
ployes killed was 2,727, an Increase of
173. and the number uituiea was 3i,i2S,
an Increase of 3,4(12. The number of pas

New York, Dec. 10. The stock market
opened weak on lower London prices and
selling for foreign account, and the ten
dency continued downward to the close.
Sugar presented a firm front for a time, a
block of the stock having been taken by
brokers generally credited with represent

Standard Oil people had secured control
were not credited, but it was generally
believed that parties identified with the
Standard have acquired a big line of the
stock.' As the day wore along tho price
