16 November 1888

An open verdict was returned at the inquest on the last victim of the Whitechapel murders. The police and other people continue to receive letters signed "Jack the Ripper", admitting the murders and threatening more shortly. The Home Secretary, Mr. Matthews, in reply to a question in the House of Commons, reiterated the refusal by the Government to offer a reward for the apprehension of the murderer.

The police have made what they consider an important arrest. The suspected person has the appearance of being a well-dressed man about town, and is said to be identical with the man observed about the scenes of the previous murders immediately preceding their commission.

ANOTHER WHITECHAPEL MURDER

Another murder has been committed in the neighbourhood of Whitechapel. A woman occupying a house of ill-fame on the previous night (the 8th.) took to her house a male friend. Next morning her nude body was found in bed with the head completely severed from the body. The bowels and breasts were removed, and the limbs terribly hacked about.

Although the limbs were so terribly hacked, the cuts were done in a professional manner, and leaves but little doubt that a surgeon had been at work. This murder is the most atrocious of the series which has taken place lately, and tremendous excitement prevails in Whitechapel. The police are using bloodhounds to track the murderer.

A free pardon has been offered to anyone concerned in the Whitechapel murders, excepting the actual murderer, for such information as will lead to conviction. A sailor lately returned from Sydney has been arrested on suspicion.

The police have not the slightest clue to the Whitechapel murders.
