May Be Pardoned

New York, Aug. 17.
The movement looking to the securing of a pardon for Ameer Ben Ali, better known as "Frenchy", who was recently convicted of the murder of a woman in the slums, and sentenced to imprisonment for life, has gained strength since the latest ripper crime in London, and which demonstrated that "Frenchy" is not, as is often claimed, the criminal Jack the Ripper. "Frenchy" is now employed in the ? making department of Auburn Penitentiary. He has found it pretty hard to learn the trade, but is very attentive to his work. The prison officials have had no trouble with him, and Warden Durston says that he is as quiet as a kitten. The keepers who are brought into contact with him every day say that they believe he is entirely innocent of the crime of which he was convicted.
