Only a Hoax

London, Oct. 5.
A sensation was caused by the publication in a special edition of a prominent morning paper of the details of another horrible murder supposed to have been committed by the Whitechapel fiend.

Inquiry at Scotland Yard elicited the information, however, that the story was entirely untrue and that the paper had probably been hoaxed.
