MURDERS IN WHITECHAPEL
POLICEMAN BRUTALLY SLAIN IN LONDON

London, Dec. 1.
The recent increased activity of the police here against "Hooliganism" in Whitechapel has been speedily followed by a revengeful murder. Early today Constable Thompson attempted to disperse a band of hooligans when one of the latter turned and stabbed him to death. Thompson was closely connected with the search for the perpetrator of the Jack the Ripper murders. Another band of armed hooligans shot a woman in the Limehouse district last night and a number of other assaults by these rowdies have been chronicled. Inhabitants of the east end of London are becoming panic stricken by the frequency of the outrages.
