WAS HE JACK THE RIPPER?
ALLEGED WHITECHAPEL FIEND HANGED IN LONDON - DISTRESSING SCENE AT HANGING

London, April 7.
George Chapman, a Southwark saloon keeper, recently convicted of the murder of his wife by poisoning, and thought by some to be the mysterious Jack the Ripper, who, in 1888 terrorized the Whitechapel district, was hanged today. The scene at the hanging was most painful. The murderer completely lost his nerve and had to be fairly dragged to the place of execution. The look on his face before the black cap was adjusted was one to chill the blood of spectators. Chapman was arrested early in January. The technical charge against him was that of poisoning a young woman who lived with him as his wife. Two other wives both dies under suspicious circumstances and an autopsy on their bodies revealed the presence of poison.
