The Central News is informed that Dr. Forbes Winslow and other leading authorities on mental disorders are still of opinion that the murders in Whitechapel were committed by a homicidal lunatic, notwithstanding that an opinion to the contrary has been expressed by one lunacy specialist whose views were sought by the police authorities. Dr. Forbes Winslow believes that that the murderer has lately been in a "lucid interval." In that condition he would be comparatively rational, and also forgetful of what he had one. As soon as this passes off he will resume his terrible work.
