London, Nov. 12.
Sir Charles Warren's resignation was due to attacks which have been made upon him by the newspapers in consequence of the helplessness of the police with regard to the recent murders. He had also been officially censured for writing an article in Murray's Magazine defending the department. An open verdict was returned at the inquest on the last victim of the Whitechapel murders. The police and other people continue to receive letters signed "Jack the Ripper", admitting the murders and threatening more shortly.
