IS IT THE RIPPER?
A Curious Story from Tunis About the Whitechapel Murder.
[BY CABLE TO THE HERALD.]

Tunis, Jan. 15, 1889-The police have captured a gang of robbers and assassins. Among the members of the gang is a man who is believed to have perpetrated the recent revolting murders of a number of women in the Whitechapel district of London.

The British Consul has forwarded to his government all the details connected with the arrests. The supposed Whitechapel murderer is charged with having committed in Tunis a murder similar to those committed in Whitechapel. The man has confessed that he recently lived in Whitechapel.

NOT VERY LIKELY.

London, Jan. 15, 1889.-A dispatch from Tunis states that no importance is attached to the report that one of the robbers arrested there to-day is "Jack the Ripper."
