Funeral of the Latest Victim of Jack the Ripper

THE FUNERAL OF CARROTY NELL

London, Feb. 26.
The city was yesterday the scene of a most remarkable spectacle in the funeral of the Coles woman, otherwise known as Carroty Nell, whose murder has created such excitement. The woman, who could not have mustered half a dozen friends before the tragedy, was followed to the grave by an enormous multitude of mourners. The crowds made angry demonstrations against the police, whom they seemed to regard in some way responsible for the crime or at least for not having captured Jack the Ripper before he had claimed so many victims. Most of the crowd dropped off on the way, but a straggling procession continued for four miles as far as the East End cemetery. The woman's coffin was deluged with flowers. It was with difficulty that the police prevented a serious demonstration of popular anger.
