FRENCHY'S KNIFE

A Black Outlook for New York's Ripper

HE USED IT WHEN HE WAS IN JAIL

New York, May 2.
Inspector Byrnes has established the identity of the knife with which Carrie Brown was murdered in the East River hotel. Frenchy No. 1 owned it. He had it while in jail in Queen's county and assaulted two other prisoners with it.

He Assaulted Fellow Prisoners

When the details of the horrible murder were printed the two prisoners who had been assaulted by Frenchy No. 1 told the sheriff of the assaults made upon them and said he had a knife at the time which answered the description of the one found in Carrie Brown's room. Two of Byrnes' men went to the Queens county jail with the knife. Both prisoners gave an exact description of it and Inspector Byrnes says that the chain of circumstantial evidence against Frenchy No 1 is now complete.

The prisoner was transferred from the police headquarters to the Tombs. His counsel, E. M. Friend, was allowed to see him there and had a long interview with him, conducted with the aid of an interpreter. Frenchy declares he is an Algerian. He was born on the Zarbary (sic) coast thirty five years ago. He said that he served with the Germans in the Franco Prussian war, and in proof of this exhibited two scars on his body made by bullets. Frenchy says that his name is George Frank and that he has been but a short time in this country. Mr. Friend is of the opinion that no case can be made against the alleged Jack the Ripper.
