PARLIAMENT.
HOUSE OF COMMONS.
THURSDAY, July 18.

THE WHITECHAPEL MURDERS.

Mr. MONTAGU asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he would offer a substantial reward, accompanied by a free pardon, to anyone not in the police force and not the actual perpetrator of the recent crime in Whitechapel who would give such information as would lead to the conviction of the murderer; and whether he would sufficiently increase the number of detectives so as to prevent, if possible, further atrocities in East London.

Mr. MATTHEWS. - I have consulted the Commissioner of Police, and he informs me that he has no reason to believe that the offer of a reward now would be productive of any good result, and he does not recommend any departure from the policy resolved on last year, and fully explained by me to the House. Since the occurrence of the outrages in the East-end a large number of men in plain clothes have been employed there, and I yesterday sanctioned an arrangement for still further increasing the number of detectives available for duty in Whitechapel.
