THE WHITECHAPEL MURDERS
ARREST OF A MEDICAL MAN
(BY TELEGRAPH)

LONDON, SUNDAY

The London police received yesterday afternoon a communication from the Birmingham detectives to the effect that a man suspected of being concerned in the Whtiechapel murders had left Birmingham by train to London. Acting on this information, Detectives Leach and White, of the Criminal Investigation Department, proceeded to Willesden Junction and Euston respectively, and at the latter station Inspector White, on the arrival of the Birmingham train, arrested the suspected individual and conveyed him to Scotland Yard. It is stated that the man under arrest has been staying at a common lodging-house in Birmingham since Monday last. The prisoner is a medical man who was some years ago practicing in London with another gentleman of some repute. He is of gentlemanly appearance and manners, and is declared to resemble the man described by witnesses at the inquest as having been seen in company with Maria Jeannette Kelly early on the morning that she was murdered. On being questioned he gave a satisfactory account of himself, and was liberated. No more arrests had been made in Whitechapel up to an early hour this (Sunday) morning.

It is believed that the police authorities have received information to the effect that the Whitechapel murderer is supposed to travel up from Manchester, Birmingham, or some other town in the Midlands for the purpose of committing the crimes. Detectives have been engaged at Willesdon and Euston watching the arrival of trains from the Midlands and the North, and looking for any suspicious passenger, but their efforts up to the present have not met with success.
