"MONEY OR YOUR LIFE."

On Wednesday morning a desperate attempt to murder a young dressmaker was made at Bow. Screams for help were heard proceeding from a small thoroughfare lying midway between the East India Dock and Bow roads, and a couple of young women rushed up to two police-constables, and said that a woman was being murdered. The two constables immediately ran to the house indicated, and there found a young woman, named Ada Wilson, lying in the passage, bleeding profusely from a fearful wound in the throat. A doctor was instantly sent for, who, after binding up the woman's wounds, sent her to the hospital, where it was ascertained that she was in a most dangerous condition. She, however, so far recovered that she was able to state what had occurred, and gave a description of the would-be murderer. She heard a knock at the door, and upon going there found a total stranger waiting, who demanded money from her, adding that if she did not at once produce the cash she had but a few moments to live. She refused to give the money, and the man drew from his pocket a clasp knife, with which he stabbed her twice in the throat, and immediately made off.
