WHITECHAPEL MURDERS

London Nov. 30. (sic)
The funeral of the recent victim of the Whitechapel murderer was followed by thousands. The large attendance was regarded as a protest against the supineness of the authorities in allowing the murderer to remain at large.

Nov. 21.
Another woman has been murdered in the vicinity of Whitechapel. The body was mutilated in a similar manner to the bodies of the previous victims. This is the ninth murder of the kind up to date.

Later.

The last victim of the Whitechapel atrocities is still living, her wounds being not so serious as was at first supposed. She has made a statement to the effect that she was drinking in the evening with a man whom she met, and who subsequently accompanied her to her lodgings. The fellow suddenly turned upon and attacked her but she struggled violently and screamed, and the would-be murderer became alarmed and desisted. He succeeded in making his escape good, though pursued for 300 yards. The woman has furnished an accurate description of her assailant, and his arrest is expected hourly. He is not believed to have any connection with the previous murders.

Nov. 22.

A man was arrested in Whitechapel early to-day, after a furious resistance, who is suspected to be identical with the assassin who attempted the life of a woman on Tuesday.
