DISORDERLY CONDUCT. - BENJAMIN ISAACS, 40, was charged with this offence. An omnibus conductor in the employ of the London General Omnibus Company said the prisoner got into the omnibus at Highgate. He kept on conversing with himself. He was holding a green umbrella in front of his face, and had a green handkerchief round his neck. When he got to London-bridge, he said he was the Whitechapel murderer, and threatened to rip a lady up who was in the omnibus. Police-constable Charles Coots said that on Thursday evening his attention was called to the prisoner. The conductor told him that accused had threatened to rip a lady up. Witness asked him if it was true, when he replied, "Yes, I am Jack the Ripper." Witness told him to get out of the omnibus, when he became so disorderly that he had to be taken into custody. The Lord Mayor remanded him.
