"Jack the Ripper's" Whereabouts
London, Dec. 31.
The police have received and traced to their origin letters which lead them to believe that "Jack the Ripper" is living in the vicinity of Dury (sic) Lane. They do not accept the theory that the Whitechapel fiend had anything to do with the murder of little John Gill, of Bradford, and seem confident that the clew upon which they are now working will result in the murderer's capture in London.
