London, Sept. 30.
At twenty minutes past two this morning the body of a woman, aged about thirty five, was discovered murdered and completely disembowelled near the junction of Leadenhall and Fenchurch streets, Aldgate. The woman's nose was severed from the face. An hour earlier the body of another woman, with her throat cut, had been discovered in a back yard in Berner street, but as the body was not mutilated in any other way it is not thought a murder of the same class as those reported lately. In consequence of the discovery of the mutilated body in Leadenhall street there is great excitement in the city to-day. Up to the present no arrests have been made.
It is said that the mutilation of the body of the murdered woman in the Aldgate district eclipses the horrors in connection with similar outrages in Whitechapel.
