WANTED TO KILL THE MADAME

Women Terrified by a Supposed Jack the Ripper.

The women in Mme. Isabella Angel's house, at 105 West Thirty Second street, New York, firmly believe that a "Jack the Ripper" was among them last night. There certainly was a wild eyed, queer acting man with an English accent there, who evidently did intend to kill the madame, but was only prevented by another man from the street, whose throat he cut for interfering. Both men are now in the New York hospital, the result of a bloody duel on the sidewalk in front of the house. One of the men is surrounding himself in a wall of secretiveness which the police are making herculean efforts to penetrate.
