Decatur Saturday Herald
Decatur, Illinois, U.S.A.
22 December 1888

At Montreal a crank whose real name is John Laughon was arrested. He claims to be Jack the Ripper and says he is the White Chapel murderer. He is a great liar. When he was searched his pockets were found to contain 25 cents and a very blunt pocket knife.
