FRENCH JACK THE RIPPER. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 7 April 1898

FRENCH JACK THE RIPPER. I A telegram. from Lyons stated: tb« police at Belley had arrested a murder er whose crimes, owing to the circum- stances attending them, recall those ol Jack the Ripper. The man, who is a shepherd named Joseph Vacher, has confessed to having killed 8 persons, three of whom wern young shepherd», three others girls, and the remaining two old women. ' The series of crimes date from 1894. The last of these murders was pcr|telrated at Ooiuzicu, a small villiage near Lyons, on 10th Dec- ember of the last year. A young shepherd boy was found in a field with his throat cut and the body hacked and dreadfully mutilated. The description of a stranger who had been noticed in that part of the country, tallied with that of the author of a similar crime at Benouces, in the Ain, in August. About a month ago a man was sen- tenced at Tournon, in the Ardpche, for an aggravated assault on a woman and committed to prison. The examining magistrate, was struck with the resem b'anc...

A HUMAN FISH CAUGHT! [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 7 April 1898

A HUMAN FISH CAU3HT! Charles Osborne, a mining man. from Shasta, had his pocket picked of two gold pieces while in San Francisco, and deter- mined 'to try his lack as a thief-catcher, He secured half-a-dozen big fishhooks- to the right-hand pocket of his stont corduroy trousers in such fashion that the hand could be easily iuserted in the pocket, hut would be caught by the hooks as it was being withdrawn. Then he wandered in- to a crowd : that . had gathered round a Salvation Army exhorter, jingled a couple of twenties in his hand and ostentatiously dropped them into his pre- pared pocket. In a few moments he.felt a hand going his pocket slowly and carefully. Pretty soon Mr Osborne felt he had a man at his elbow who was doing some deep thinking, He said nothing, but he knew something was going to : happen. It did when a voice said, '.' Say, mister, I' ve got my band in your pocket !". " " What have you got your handln ¿ny pocket for !" said Osborne cheerfully. " Why . don't yon take...

" MORNING POST." "Neither by fear nor by favor, but by Truth alone." Thursday Morning, April 7th, 1898. ECONOMIC RAILWAYS. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 7 April 1898

" MORNING POST." "Neither by fear nor by favor, but by Truth alone." Thursday Morning. April 7th, 1898. ECONOMIC RAILWAYS. Referring to the . railway lately authorised by Parliament from Mareeba to Chillagoe and to the future of rail- way building in Queensland, there are certain matters worth considering which are not generally known     Economic railways are those which best answer the purposes for which they are constructed. They may be either very heavy or very light, ac- cording to the circumstances. They may cost £50,000 a mile or £500 a mile, and will in both cases be econo- mical if they answer their object without waste in construction or maintenance. The Festiniog 2ft, gauge railway in Wales was originally laid with 15lb rails, which in the course of sixty years, as the traffic in- creased have been gradually increased to rails weighing 50b. per yard. This line has a heavy mineral and general traffic, is one of the most profitable in existence, an...

THE KLONDIKE GOLDFIELD. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 14 April 1898

THE KLONDIKE GOLDFIELD. The American newspapers to hand by the Mariposa, which arrived from San Francisco, did not contain much additional information respecting the gold deposits from Klondike, a cir- cumstance due doubtless to the fact that the passes are frozen up and al- most impassable. The Pomona cor- respondent of the San Francisco Call writing on February 15, states: ' Three brothers-James, William and Albert - Hohn-were among the first to strike it rich there last August. They went to Dawson from Ventura, California, where they were very poor, and eked out a livelihood by bee raising. It is stated that together they have already over 160,000 dol. in gold stored in oil cans and sacks of skins ready for shipment ' to San Francisco. Their claim is worth easily 600,000 do], more. They found I bedrock about 14 ft. below the surface, and in one month they took out from a hole lift, square over 50,000 dol. worth of gold.

RONTGEN Rm AGAIN. At tlie atmual meeting of the trus- tees of the Royal Southern Hospital, | Liverpool, the president alluded to the continued success of the Rontgen rays. The room and apparatus at the hospital had been used for fifty-seven cases from March last to the close of the present year, some being police cases. The Royal Southern Hospital was the pioneer in the country, and the first general hospital in the world that practiced the strengthening of hunchbacks and spinal curvature. Over sixty operations had been per- formed, inclusive, of cases done a second time, and the results were most encouraging. It uaw Kopod-that by this method persons might riot only bc rescued from deformity, but from early death. A large number of hunchbacks awaited treatment at the hospital, and it seemed that the age of miracles had not ended. He had been permitted to wn.tch one of these operations, and from the time the patient left his bed títere appeared to be no pain whatever, either before, ...
