THE WHITECHAPEL MURDERS

Bloodhounds to Be Employed - A Clew to the Criminal

London, Oct. 5.
Sir Charles Warren, chief of the Metropolitan police force, has decided to employ bloodhounds in his efforts to discover the perpetrator of the Whitechapel murders. The police place confidence in the story of George M. Hodge, a seaman, who states that in August last he met a Malay cook named Alask, with whom he had previously been acquainted on ship-board, in a music hall in London, and that Alask told him he had been robbed of all he had by a woman of the town and threatened that unless he found the woman and recovered his money he would kill and mutilate every Whitechapel woman he met. Acting on information which has been furnished them the police who are investigating the Whitechapel murders have seized and occupied several houses in that section.
