THE WHITECHAPEL MURDERS.
_______

SEVERAL ARRESTS BY THE POLICE.
_______

REWARDS OFFERED FOR THE CAPTURE OF THE UKNOWN WOMAN-SLAYER--OPINION OF MEDICAL EXPERTS.

London, Oct. 1.--Several persons have been arrested on suspicion of being the Whitechapel murderer.

"The Financial News" has offered a reward of 300 pounds for the capture of the murderer, andn there was talk on the Stock Exchange of offering a further reward. The Lord Mayor has offered a reward of 500 pounds for the arrest of the murderer.

Dr. Henry Forbes Winslow, Sir Rsdon Bennett and other medical experts are more than ever convinced that the murderer is a homicidal lunatic.

"The Daily Telegraph," commenting on the Whitechapel murders, says: "If the Home Secretary fails to wake up and do his duty, Lord Salisbury will have to dismiss a Minister who has not good sense enough to resign."

_____

WHAT NEW-YORK POLICE OFFICIAL THINK.

Superintendent Murray and other officials at Police Headquarters believe that the murders in Whitechapel London were committed by a lunatic. It would be impossible, they think, for a fiend to commit so many such crimes in this city without detection. Mr. Murray said: "It is plain to me that the murderer is a crazy man, because no sane man would go about such bloody work." Mr. Murray did not care to criticise the London police for their failure to capture the murderer.
