In an Insane Asylum

New York, Sept. 2.
Dr. Forbes Winslow, of London, a well known specialist on suicide and insanity, says that Jack the Ripper, who by his crimes terrorized London a few years ago, is incarcerated in a county lunatic asylum in England. Dr. Winslow says this fact is known to the authorities, but they have hushed up the case. The doctor has come to New York to attend the medico legal congress, which will be held Sept. 4, 5 and 6. Jack the Ripper was a medical student of good family. He was a young man, of slight build with light hair and blue eyes. He studied very hard, and his mind, being naturally very weak, gave way. He became a religious enthusiast, and his religious fervour resulted in homicidal mania toward the women of the street.
