Chief Crowley's Account of
His Career in San Francisco.
Chief Crowley has exchanged considerable correspondence with the Scotland Yard officials in reference to "Dr. Tumblety" who is under arrest on suspicion of being implicated in the Whitechapel murders. Chief Crowley sent a telegram on the 19th inst. to the London detectives, informing them that he could furnish specimens of Tumblety's hand-writing, and yesterday received the following answer from the Chief of the Scotland Yard detectives: "Thanks; send writing and all details you can in relation to him. - Anderson."
Chief Crowley has discovered that Tumblety still has a balance in the Hibernia Bank, which he left there when he disappeared from the city, and which never since has been drawn upon. Tumblety came here from Toronto in March 1870, and rented an office at No. 20 Montgomery street, where he remained until the following September. He then disappeared as suddenly as he came, and in 1871 turned up in New York.
