East End News
Friday, 4 January 1889

THE POPLAR TRAGEDY. - Since the mysterious death of the young woman found in Clarke's-yard on the 20th ult., an extra number of police have been put upon duty in the neighbourhood, which has certainly met a long-felt want, and will probably allay the fears entertained that a similar outrage may be perpetrated. The adjourned inquest was held on Wednesday, and the body identified by the mother of the deceased. Mr. Harris, Dr. Brownfield's assistant, gave his opinion that death was by strangulation, and the cause of strangulation was by a piece of string drawn tightly round the throat. Dr. Bond, of Westminster, who had been sent to examine the body by the Assistant-Commissioner of Police, gave it as his opinion that the woman had fallen down while drunk, and that the larynx was compressed against the neck of her jacket, and so caused suffocation. The inquest was again adjourned.


FREE BREAKFASTS AT EAST-END LODGING-HOUSES. - Under the auspices of the East London Evangelisation Society and London Lodging-house Mission, a free breakfast was, on Sunday morning, given to the inmates of a common lodging-house, known as the White House, Flower-and-Dean-street, Spitalfields. The recipients, who numbered between 80 and 90 men, women, and children, appeared very grateful for the meal, which consisted of tea, coffee, bread and butter, and cake. The Society hopes, if the necessary funds are forthcoming, to continue the giving of free breakfasts to the inmates of the whole of the common lodging-houses in London. Subscriptions for this laudable object should be forwarded to the president, Mr. John Lobb, Christian Age, or to the hon. secretary, Mr. John Harvey, 29 Senrab-street, Stepney, E. The Society also holds Gospel services on Sundays in the common lodging-houses of Westminster, Whitechapel, Spitalfields, Ratcliff, Stepney, Poplar, etc.
