The main portion of this issue's reporting of Whitechapel murder is reproduced in full in "News from Whitechapel" pages 8 - 14.
Another most horrible murder was perpetrated in Whitechapel yesterday morning. At an early hour, as a police-constable was on his beat in an obscure thoroughfare, he came upon the body of a woman, with her throat cut from ear to ear. On the arrival of a doctor she was removed to the mortuary, where an examination revealed the fact that there were many other shocking wounds upon her person. Though lifeless she was not quite cold, showing that the crime had not been long committed. Late in the day she was identified as a woman named Nicholls, who had led a loose and miserable life, and had at one time been an inmate of the Lambeth Workhouse. So far the police have no clue to the murderer.
