HE IS A FUGITIVE FROM JUSTICE IN ENGLAND BUT CANNOT BE ARRESTED.
NEW YORK, Dec. 3.--"Doctor" Tumblety, who was suspected of being connected in some way with the Whitechapel murders in London, arrived in this city yesterday on board the steamer La Bretagne. Police Inspector Byrnes said this morning that although Tumblety was a fugitive from justice and under $1,500 bail for a nominal offense in England, he could not be arrested here. The inspector added that in case Tumblety was wanted he knew where to lay his hand upon him.
