13 April 1893
Halifax, N.S., April 13.
Deeming, the Australian and Liverpool murderer, was here a few years ago on alleged gold mining business. He showed a gentleman whom he met here a letter he had received from Kate L'Edowes (sic), one of the women who was subsequently murdered in Whitechapel. The letter revealed a motive for the murder of the girl. Deeming went under two or more aliases in Canada, one of which was Ruel. He impressed those as being a thoroughly conscienceless wretch.
