The Latest Whitechapel Case being Heard in Court

London, Feb. 17.
The police say that the circumstances surrounding the arrest of the man Sadler strongly tend to prove him to be the murderer of Carrotty Nell, the last Whitechapel victim. The Stepney police station, where he is detained, was this morning surrounded by a vast crowd, mostly women, who uttered wild threats of lynching and tearing the prisoner to pieces. When he was removed to the police court an immense force of police was employed to keep the mob from doing him harm.

The prisoner was placed in the dock this afternoon. His face was dirty and scratched. He seems utterly careless as to what happens to him and is apparently entirely composed. He kept his hands in his pockets and glanced calmly around him as if he was a disinterested spectator of the proceedings. During the course of the prisoner's examination a man testified to the fact that he had seen Sadler in company with the murdered girl Thursday night. As the witness was making his statement the prisoner watched him sharply and suddenly exclaimed, addressing the man in the witness box, "Be careful about what you are saying."

Continuing, witness described in detail the visit of Sadler to a small coffee shop. Sadler, according to the witness, sat in the coffee shop with the murdered girl and seemed to be quarrelling with her. Sadler, the witness, said, claimed to have been robbed. Finally Sadler and Carrotty Nell left the coffee shop separately.
