JACK THE RIPPER
New York Police Think They Have the "Only Original" Under Arrest

New York, March 23.
The police of this city are inclined to think they have the elusive Ripper in their clutches. A woman was ripped up her side on Sunday night and a big knife left sticking in the wound. The knife was traced to Frank Castellano, an Italian barber whose record has been under a police torch light. They have discovered that until recently he was a fireman on one the transatlantic steamers.

There are circumstances connected with the case that lead the police to believe that Castellano is none other than the mysterious Jack the Ripper who put London in terror for two years.
