POLICE VERY ACTIVE IN THE WHITECHAPEL DISTRICT

GREAT BRITAIN
the Whitehall Mystery.

LONDON, Oct. 6--At the inquest on the trunk of a woman found in a cellar in Whitehall on Tuesday last, surgeons who examined the remains testified that they were those of an unusually fine woman, who had probably occupied a good social position.


The Active Police

Saturday's Telegraph published two sketch portraits from the descripotions of the man last seen in company of the woman named Stride, one for the victims of the Whitechapel murder fiend. The result has been the using any resemblance to the pictures and a great deal of discomfort has been caused by thes new phase of police activity. Many of the arrests are made by self-constituted detectives or ambitious vigilance committe men. The victims are generally discharged from custody as soon as brought before a magistrate, but some are unlucky enough not to be able to satisfy the officials of their rectitude and are subjected to moreor less annoying detention. ONe of the men arrested carried a bag in which was found a razor. The suspect is still held and will have to give a very good account of himself and his razor. Another perplexity attending the Whitechapel muddle is due to the fact that the regular police do not know by sight the various amateur detectives, and the latter are occasionally help up andput to the embarassment of explaining their presence and mysterious movements in the much-watched district.
