NO CLUE TO THE MURDER
THE POLICE UNABLE TO LAY THEIR HANDS ON JACK THE RIPPER

London, July 18.
The murder in Whitechapel is far from reviving the excitement occasioned by Jack the Ripper's fiendish work last September. The fact is people have all along settled down to the conviction that the murderer was only taking a vacation, and no one is surprised at the discovery that he has again appeared to indulge in his pastime of murder. Then, too, the prevailing idea that the police are impotent to solve the dread mystery serves to render people callous, as the excitement of the chase after the perpetrator of the crime is entirely missing. The women of Whitechapel, of the class to which all of the murderer's victims belonged, are of course in a perfect frenzy of fear, but otherwise London accepts its last horror as quite a matter of course. Unless the cunning fiend perseveres in his bloody work and fresh victims fall beneath his cruel knife, Englishmen will soon forget the wretch lying mangled old Castle street.

All the persons arrested on suspicion of connection with the Whitechapel murder have been released.

JACK THE RIPPER
CARVES AND SLASHES ANOTHER VICTIM AT WHITECHAPEL

London, July 17.
One more murder has been added to the long list credited to Jack the Ripper in Whitechapel. The body of a woman, evidently on of the disreputable frequenters of the district, was found in Castle alley, only a short distance from where the other murders were committed. The body was horribly mutilated and bears undoubted evidence of the work of the fiend whose atrocities in Whitechapel have terrorized the whole district repeatedly. The police are as far as ever from the identity of the murderer and seem perfectly paralyzed. The excitement throughout Whitechapel, when the news of the discovery of a fresh victim of the mysterious Ripper has spread with lightning rapidity, is at fever heat.
