Feeling Against Police

London, March 4.
Popular indignation against the police authorities runs very high and the feeling is not confined to the lower classes. Sir Edward Bradford's failure to detect the Whitechapel assassin has had a discouraging influence in public opinion as to his capability. Much was expected of him at the time of his appointment, and the revulsion from the former estimate is serious. The failure of the police also to arrest the man who robbed a bank clerk in broad daylight of nearly £15,000 arouses apprehension in breasts not affected by the Whitechapel murders. It is said there are gangs of men in London who make it their business to become intimately acquainted with the inner working of every bank and the movements of every clerk who is in the habit of handling large amounts in coins or notes. "Why are these gangs not broken up?" the people are asking, and comparisons are drawn up to Paris and New York, unfavorable to the London police.
