He Is Jack the Ripper

London, March 23.
The police have unearthed circumstantial evidence, a story printed here relates, tending to prove that George Chapman, convicted of murder last Thursday, is Jack the Ripper, the mysterious perpetrator of the revolting Whitechapel murders of 1888. Chapman, it is shown, is really a Pole named Klosowski. The discovery has been made that Klosowski soon after the Whitechapel atrocities ceased, went to Jersey City and opened a barber shop and that while there several mysterious murders of women occurred. It is stated that Klosowski's real wife informed the police that he, after a quarrel, tried to murder her in a bedroom back of the barber shop in Jersey City.
