THE ALDGATE MURDER.

INTERVIEWED by a reporter concerning the kidney that was sent to the Vigilance Committee, Dr. Sedgwick Saunders says: "Taking the discovery of the half of a kidney, and supposing it to be human, my opinion is that it was a student's antic. It is quite possible for any student to obtain a kidney for the purpose." The curator of the pathological museum of the London Hospital says: "Until a more minute examination, it is almost impossible to say whether the liver [sic] has been abstracted from the body of a male or female." Extra police precautions are still in force.
