THE WHITECHAPEL MURDERS

London, Sunday Night

Some of the detective officers who have been engaged in investigating the East End murders returned to headquarters shortly before midnight on Saturday, having just received some important information. What that information was they said they were not at liberty to disclose, but they expressed themselves hopeful of being able to elucidate the mystery.

LATER

The detective officers continued their investigations to-day, but up to a late hour to-night no arrest had been made. Neither is there any immediate prospect of an arrest being made. The public of the neighbourhood continue to make statements, which are committed to writing at Commercial-street Station, and in several instances the police have been made cognisant of what the informants consider to be suspicious movements of individuals whose appearance is thought to resemble the man wanted. The lapse of time, it is feared, will lessen the chances of the perpetrators being discovered.
