EXCITEMENT AT PUEBLO.
frequent .Hurderous Assaults Upon Women
Pueblo, Colo., Cvt. 8. This city
is in great excitement over n series
of murderous assaults upon - women
and girls. From what can be learned
they seem to have been committed
by the same iierson, a .Negro or a very
dark white man with his face black'
oned. Last night Mrs. J. P. Hen.
derson was a victim, being half killed
with a club while alone in her home,
the assailant having induced her to
admit him by protending he had a
telegram. He stole a revolver when
he departed. Later, a girl in a fam
ily named Hamilton was terribly
choked by a man who had forced his
way in. He left on the bed where the
girl had been sleeping, the same re
volver stolen at the other place. Mrs.
Hickey, who was struck down while
riding a bicycle two nights ago is
still at the point of death with a frac
tured skull and can give no clear ac
count of what occurred. Two very
voting girls have recently leen victims
of aseAtilts of the most atrocious des
cription. In another case a egro
who seized a young lady on the
porch of her home, was chased two
blocks by a young man who came
out, but escaped. The police have
been unable to get any definite infor
mation. Keport comes late tonight
of another case, which is now being
INSPECTION IS FAULTY.
Engineering Expert! Report on Condition of
New York, Oct. 8. District attor
ney Philbin has made public the re
port of fcuwin Duryea and Joseph
Maycr.the special engineering experts
appointed by him to look into the
condition of the Brooklyn bridge after
the breaking of several suspender rods
and suspender bands July 24 last.
These experts were appointed to
make this report with a view to pre
senting tjie matter to the grand jury,
if it shoiild lie found that the bridge
department had been negligent. The
experts found that the inspection of
the structure, as maintained by the
bridge department is faulty, but that
the bridge is now practically as strong
as when completed. One trouble is
that the moving loads which cross
the bridge have increased so rapidly
that tho structure must be strength
ened. The accident of July 24 is
found to have been due to the 'wind
pressure blowing against the plat
form cars, causing a pressure trans
verse to the bridge, thus causing tho
rods to bend. Had careful inspection
been maintained, the bending and
breaking would have been prevented
The experts maintain that tho in
spection of tho brigde should bo done
by engineers, and not by mechanics,
as at present. They find that the
safety of tho bridge can bo increased
by remedying the certain defects in
the design. They hasten to say, how
ever, that they do not criticise tho
designer, and call attention to the
fact that since his structure was de
signed, great advancement has been
made in such work.

KRUGER GROWING WEAKER.
Only Held Up By His Interne Hatred ol
The Hague, Oct. 7. A. D. W. Wol
marans, one of the Boer envoys who
has been visiting Mr. Kruger, found
the mental condition pf the ex-Presi
dent of the lrnnsvaal to be by no
means satisfactory. Mr. Kruger is
slowly growing weaker, physically
His slowness in reaching a decision
on important questions is found to
be a serious hindrance to those work
ing in Europe in behalf of the Boer
cause. At tho slightest question re.
garding lus health, Mr. Kruger ex
hibits intense irritation and ve
hemently denies that anything is
wrong. The approach of winter
causes anxiety, as Mr. Kruger refuses
to leave Holland. According to
remark made by a prominent Boer,
the ex-presidonts' condition would
long since have been much worse if
hatred of Great Britaiin did not
nerve him to continue.
