EXPLORING THE WORLD OF SHERLOCK HOLMES
No arrest in connexion with the atrocious murders at the East-end had been reported up to a late hour last night either at Scotland-yard or at any of the City police-stations, and although elaborate investigations have been made no further clue has yet been discovered.
The funeral of Catherine Eddowes, the victim of the Mitre-square murder, took place yesterday at Ilford Cemetery. The body was removed shortly after 1 oclock from the mortuary in Golden-lane, where a vast concourse of people had assembled. A strong force of the City Police, under Mr. Superintendent Foster, was present, and conducted the cortege to the City boundary. At Old-street a large number of the Metropolitan Police were present under Inspector Barnham. The cortege passed Whitechapel parish church, and along Mile-end-road, through Bow and Stratford to the cemetery. The sisters of the ill-fated woman and the man Kelly, with whom she had lived for seven years, attended the funeral. Along the whole route great sympathy was expressed for the relatives.
It is stated by a news agency that definite
instructions have been issued to the police that in the event of any person being found
murdered under circumstances similar to those of the recent crimes, they are
not to remove the body of the
victim, but to send notice immediately to a veterinary surgeon in the
South-west District, who holds several trained blood- hounds in readiness to be taken to
the spot where the body may be found, and to be at
once put on the scent.
At the Marylebone Police-court, on Monday, Edward Kenealy, twenty-five, wheelwright, was charged with rescuing a prisoner from the custody of the police, and assaulting the officer; and Bridgett Matron, thirty-eight, was charged with assaulting the same person. Police-constable Haycroft, 311 of the D Division, said he was conveying a woman to the station on Saturday night when the male defendant struck him on the ear and kicked him, and was so violent that witness lost his prisoner. He blew his whistle for assistance, when the woman pulled the whistle out of his mouth, and damaged three of his teeth. Police-constable 88 D gave corroborative evidence. The prisoner alleged that Haycroft used great violence towards his wife, and that she now bore marks of it. The female prisoner denied the charge and said the officer must have made a mistake. She heard the officer's whistle blown, and she and others ran up to see what was the matter. Mr De Ruizen remanded the male prisoner until a summons was to be heard against Mrs Kenealy.
A Magistrate's Advice Sought
A pale, thin young man was among the applicants at the Westminster Police Court to-day, his complaint being that he had been discharged without notice from his employment as a ghost in one of the side shows at the Earls-court Exhibition. - Mr Marsham told the applicant that he ought to have sought advice at the West London Court, but perhaps it was hardly worthwhile going there, as a man who took the part of a ghost would probably be considered as an artiste outside the Employers' and Workmen's Act. Did not the applicant regard his share in the illusion as a work of art?
Not a Work of Art
The applicant did not think so, considering that he was at work
from the early afternoon till the exhibition closed for £1 a week. He asked for a little
extra remuneration for his heavy labour on a Sunday, when he helped to move the show from
one part of the grounds to another, and instead of getting it he was discharged.
George Yates was remanded at Heywood to-day on a charge of breaking into St James's Church, Heywood, and stealing the contents of the poor-box and sacramental wine. The accused was seen in the locality without stockings on, and when arrested he had a number of threepenny pieces in his pockets.
THE QUEEN AND THE "SOCIETY" PAPERS
THE QUEEN, it is said, is very indignant at the intrusions upon her private life made by certain society journalists. Mr Labouchere is the greatest sinner, for, while playing the part of Court newsman in one column, he is an unscrupulous Court critic in another. "Society" journalists in England and America are very much exercised to find a bride for Prince Edward of Wales. At home, the editors have quarrelled among themselves as to what German Princess the heir-apparent will marry. In America it has been settled that he is to find a wife in the States. As a wag has put it, "he is to go into the United States to get into the united state". All this is offensive to her Majesty, and, in consequence, the Court chroniclers are in future to be deprived of much of their inspiration. It was nearly time.

Oh! the gladness of a woman when she's glad!
But the gladness of her gladness,
And the sadness of her sadness,
Are nothing to her badness -
She: Why do you love me dearest?"
