NEW YORK'S RIPPER
An Inquest Opened and Important Testimony Presented

A New York despatch says: The inquest on the body of Carrie Brown, or Shakespeare, the victim of Jack the Ripper, was begun today. The inhabitants of Water street were out in force and almost filled the court room in the coroner's office. The eight females who are held as witnesses were also present. Ameer Ben Ali, or Frenchy No. 1, was also there under guard. He was shabbily attired.

Police cap. Connor testified that when he arrested French (sic) No. 1, the latter had blood stains on the front of his shirt, also on the back near the collar. The knife found and Frenchy's shirt were handed around for the jury to look at. The parts of the shirt where the blood stains had been found were cut out, but will be produced later. Frenchy looked on quietly and smiled when his short was exhibited to the jury.
