London, July 17.
One more murder has been added to the long list credited to Jack the Ripper, in Whitechapel. The body of a woman, evidently one of the disreputable frequenters of the district, was found in Castle alley last night, only a short distance from where the other murders were committed. The body was horribly mutilated and bears undoubted evidence of the work of the fiend whose atrocities in Whitechapel have repeatedly terrorized the whole district.
The police are as far as ever from a clue to the identity of the murderer and seem perfectly paralyzed. The excitement throughout Whitechapel, where the news of the discovery of a fresh victim of the Ripper has spread with lightning rapidity, is at fever heat.
