27 April 1891
New York, April 27.
There seems at last to be no doubt but that the old woman killed by the suspected "Jack the Ripper" was Carrie Brown. John F. Flower, in whose family she worked two years ago, identified the body. She told him she was born in Canada and married a sea captain named Charles Brown. Two women employed in Belleview Hospital also identified the body. Another arrest has been made that tallies with the description of the supposed Jack the Ripper. Two park policemen found the man in City Hall Park. He wore a sand colored coat and blue trousers, and, if any thing, was scarcely shabby enough for the companion of the degraded victim at the slum lodging house what fatal night. The man, whose name is said to be Henry Young, was examined at the Oak Street station, confronted with "Frenchy's" cousin, and later taken to police headquarters. The newspaper men were meanwhile driven out of the station house, so great was the desire to keep quiet the actual bent of the police work and the facts learned thereby.
The territory of the precinct where the butchery occurred is simply swarming with detectives. Their actual work, whatever it is, is enveloped in clouds. At 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon Inspector Byrnes arrested the second engineer of the Red "D" Line steamer Philadelphia at her pier on the est river and turned him over to his men and had him taken to police headquarters. The name of the man could not be learned but he answered almost perfectly to the description as given by Mary Miniter, housekeeper of the East river hotel. The inspector himself made the arrest.
