Arrest of a Man in London with Blood Stained Clothes.

IS HE THE WHITECHAPEL FIEND?

Is He the Knifer?

London, 9th.--An arrest, which the police thinks an important one in connection with the series of murders in Whitechapel, has been made. On Wednesday a stranger called at a shop on Gray's Inn Road and left an overcoat and a pair of trousers to be cleaned. The clothes were plentifully spattered with blood stains, especially the pockets, which were almost literally dyed red. The proprietor of the shop thought the incident suspicious and at once informed the police, and detectives were secreted in the premises. The suspect called for his clothing last night and was at once taken into custody. He refused to give any account of himself, or to explain the presence of blood stains on his clothing. He is held a prisoner and a searching investigation is being made.
