SHROUDED IN MYSTERY
NO FURTHER LIGHT THROWN UPON THE STRANGE MURDERS

New York, September 25. (Special)
The World's copyright cable, dated London, September 24, says Isaac Piser, popularly known by the nickname of Leather Apron, who was arrested at first on suspicion of being the author of the four Whitechapel murders, and who was subsequently released without a stain on his character, has commenced lawsuits against the Daily Telegraph and Mr. T.P. O'Connor of the Evening Star, claiming heavy damages from them for having publicly accused him of those murders at a time when he was confined to is house by illness. It is stated that he has likewise commenced proceedings against a New York newspaper on the same grounds. There is absolutely nothing new in connection with the Whitechapel murders. The police are as much at sea as they were three weeks ago. The most extravagant kind of theories abound, but of actual facts there are none. The murder of the young woman at Gateshead on Saturday night has no possible connection with the Whitechapel crimes, and besides Gateshead is opposite Newcastle on the Scottish border, and as far from Whitechapel as New York is from Boston.
