I THE SCHAETON TRIBUNE TUESDAY MORNING. DECEMBEK 11, 1894. WOMAN STAB IN BLACK London Is Terrorized by Another Blood-thirsty Lunatic. 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 in black. 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 .Tuesday. BROKER KELLAM CONFESSES. lie F.xpluins How lie Disposed of Numcr. ous nig Securities. 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. FROM SYMPATHY TO WRATH. Two .Men Who Told a raise Story of Mis cry Arrested. By the United Press. Wllkes-Barre, Pa., Dee. 10. Superin tendent Lawall, of the Lehigh and Wilkes-Barre Coal company, was vic timized by two miners who said their children were dead at home, and that they had no money to bury them. The men wanted the money to have some fun. Lawall became Indignant when he found out the truth, and at once caused the men's arrest. INDUSTRIAL TOPICS. i 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 Bnrre, Is busy writing his annual report. He will be a candidate for re-election. The new culm breaker at the Oxford shaft is fast aproachlng completion. The machinery is being placed theiMn and Will be in operation Jan. 1. At a directors' meeting of the Lehigh Coal and Navigation company, held at llaueh Chunk yesterday afternoon, K. W. Clark was elocted president of the com pany, all the other candidates having withdrawn. 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 iams, of Wilkes-Barre, will soon be one of the biggest of the individual operutors if GOUT, RHEUMATISM, 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, he keeps on organizing new plants. His Pottsvtlle investment is said to be a One one. The superintendent, V. T. Bmythe, In the Record's opinion, Is one of the keen est to be had in the whole anthracite coal ftelds. 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 ter market, 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 this connection. 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 sengers killed was 299, being a decrease of 77; the number injured was 3,229, being a decrease of only 2 over tho previous year. The interstate commerce commission, In Its report Issued yesterday, makes these recommendations for amendment to the present statute: That power be conferred upon the commission to pre scribe minimum as well us maximum rates; that the commission be dlrecetcd to prescribe a uniform classification for freights and change tho same rrom time to time as, after Investigation, may ap pear necessary, anM that the curriers be required by suitable provision to con form to such classification; that ror the purposo of preventing overcharges and undercharges for Interstate transporta tton the act be amended so as to connect the contract of shipment and Its perform ance by tho carriers with their duty to charge or receive only such rates as have beon put in forco according to law; that the provisions of the act be made to apply to all transportation or interstate com mcrce over rail or rail and water lines, and to all common carriers, corporations, companies, firms and persons in anywise emcaeod in such transportation, or own Ing lines, cars, yards, or properties used In connection therewith; am) mat corpor atlons subject to the act be made liable to Indictment for offenses against tho statute; and that the present provisions subjecting Individuals engaged In railway service to punishment by fine or impris onment forprohlblted acts be retained, but that shippers, consignees, and individuals not connected with railway employment be relieved from liability to fine and Im prisonment, except for such fraudulent nets as raise billing, raise ciassincuiion false weighing, false representation of the contents of Us package or false report of weight.

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 ing inside Interests. The rumors that 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 weakened to 90, form 93 earlier In tho Session, the decline being due to the cut In the price of relined of ',4 of a cent a pound in all grades except cut, crushed and domlnos, which were reduced c. per pound. Today's cut by tho trust was a surprise to the outside reriners, who claim that there is Ho profit In refining at the figures now being quoted. The general list was adversely affected; by the fur ther rlno In sterling exchange, posted rates having been advnnced to 489 and 190. The anthracite coalers were notably heavy and broko H to 2'i per cent. Lako Shoro sold down 1 to 134. In the clos ing trading In Sugar was, weak, and the general market steady. Net changes show losses of 'i to 1? per cent. The Bales were'.! 12,037 shares. The range of today' prices for tho ac tive stocks of tho New York stock mar ket aro given below.
