BLOODHOUNDS WILL BE USED

To track the Author of the Whitechapel Horrors - Hunting Up a Malay

London, Oct. 5.
Since Sunday the evening papers have been busy contradicting the stories of the morning papers about the Whitechapel murders and the next day's morning papers return the compliment in kind. Except that the mutilated bodies have been found and identified, no fact throwing light upon the deed or the murderer has transpired, and at the present moment there is not one person under detention. The American arrested on suspicion of being the Whitechapel murderer was released to-day. It was a case of delirium tremens, and as the prisoner gave a satisfactory account of his past conduct the police had to discharge him. The accused tendered his name and address to the police on the understanding that they were not to be known. There is absolutely no clue whatever, and the Scotland Yard officials are frightfully at sea, while the public mind is considerably agitated.

Sir Charles Warren, commissioner of the metropolitan police, has decided to adopt one of the many suggestions offered in reference to the Whitechapel murders, and employ bloodhounds in the district frequented by the murderer to aid in the search for him. The police have adopted the story that a sailor, George Dodge, relates about a Malay cook, who as a revenge for being robbed by a woman with whom he had consorted, threatened to murder and mutilate every Whitechapel woman he met until he found the guilty one. Acting upon this clue, the police are hunting everywhere for the Malay.
