Sir Charles's Successes and Failures

Post by Karen on Sun 1 Apr 2012 - 5:50


Will not the editor of the Pall-Mall Gazette come to the defense of the Whitechapel street-walkers? Plainly, Scotland Yard is unequal to finding the mysterious murderer. In the United States we have learned that reporters are the best detectives. The Gazette is the most enterprising paper in Europe, and one of Mr. Stead's commissioners might succeed where the runners and plain-clothes men have failed utterly.
The most conspicuous failure of the lot is their chief, Sir Charles Warren. When he succeeded Sir E. Henderson a few years ago, the Londoners thought he was just the man to suppress the cockney rough, because he had slaughtered a good many more or less clothes savages in his time. Sir Charles conducted a series of explorations in Palestine, arranged the Orange Free State boundary, settled the land question Grequaland West, and was commander of the Gequa and Bechuanaland campaigns in 1878. In 1882 he went to Egypt to restore the authority of Khedive in the desert and punish the murderers of Prof. Hamer. He commanded the Bechuanaland expedition which added a territory as large as Spain to the British Empire in Central South Africa. He ran for Sheffield in the Liberal interest in the election before the last, was defeated, and went to Suakim to take command of the forces in that district. He was there only two months before being sent to his present command.
Sir Charles is in more danger of deposition now than is his master, the Home Secretary. Mr. Henry Matthews overrode the odium of the Regent-street case, in which a moral principle was involved, and he is not so closely connected with the protection of life in the metropolis as is the Commissioner of Police.
It is the more remarkable that the murderer has not been taken because a consensus of newspaper opinion sets "him" down as a maniac. Perhaps that pronoun is wrong, for the Toronto Globe has convinced itself that the assassin is a woman. We are inclined to think, however, that this slayer and mutilator is a mad man bent on revenging himself on the class of beings which has destroyed him, mentally and physically. It may be that all surmises are far from right.
