THE WHITECHAPEL MURDERS.
_______

A CLEW THAT LEADS TO AN AMERICAN..
_______

AN INTERESTING STATEMENT MADE BEFORE THE CORONER'S JURY IN LONDON.

London, Sept. 26.--The coroner in summing up at the inquest in the case of the last woman found murdered in Whitechapel stated to the jury that shortly after the details of the last sitting of the jury had been published, the sub-curator of the English Pathological Museum had informed him that some months ago an American had visited him and asked him (the sub-curator) to procure a number of specimens of a certain part of a woman's body. The visitor stated that he would willingly pay 20 pounds each for specimens, his object being to issue an actual specimen with each copy of a book, upon which he was then engaged. The sub-curator promptly informed the applicant that it would be imposible to comply with his request. The American still urged the feasibility of procuring the specimens, and said he wanted them preserved in glycerine, instead of spirits, in order to keep them flaccid. The request had been repeated at another institute. The sub-curator had promptly informed the Scotland Yard authorities of the facts in his possession. The coroner expressed the hope that greater publicity would tend to elucidate the mystery, and that the publication of these facts in the American press would assist in throwing light on the subject.
