London, 9th.--The mysterious murderer has butchered another unfortunate without being captured. This morning the body of a dissolute woman was found in a house on Dorset street, Spitalfields. The remains were mutilated in the same horrible manner as were those of the women assassinated at Whitechapel. The appearance of the remains was frightful, and the mutilation was even greater than in the previous cases, the head being severed and placed beneath one of the arms. The ears and nose had been cut off, the body had been disembowelled and the flesh was torn from the thighs. The skin had been torn off the forehead and cheeks. One handhad been pushed into the stomach.
like all the others, was a prostitute. She was married and her husband was a porter, and they had lived together at spasmodic intervals. He name is believed to have been Lizzie Fisher, but to most of the habitues of the haunts she visited she was known as "Mary Jane." She had a room in the house where she was murdered, and carried a latch-key. No one knows at what hour she entered the house last night and probably no one saw the man who accompanied her, therefore it is hardly likely that he will ever be identified. He might easily have left the house at any time between one and six o'clock this morning, without attracting attention. The doctors, who have examined the remains, refuse to make any statement until the inquest is held.
told a companion last evening that she was without money and unless she obtained a supply would commit suicide. It has been learned that a man respectfully dressed accosted the victim and offered her money. They went to her lodgings on the second floor of the Dorset street house. Ho noise was heard during the night and nothing was known of the murder until the landlady went to the room in the morning to ask for her rent. The first thing she saw on entering the the room were the woman's mutilated remains lying on a table. Dorset street is short and narrow and is situated close to Mitre's Square and Hanbury street.
London, 9th--In the House of Commons to-day Mr. Conybeare adked the question whether if it was true that another woman had been mudered in London, Gen. Warren, the Cheif of the Metropolitan Police, ought not to be superceded by an officer accustomed to investigate crime. The question was greeted with cries of "Oh, oh." The Speaker called "Order, order," and said that notice must be given of the question in the normal way. Mr. Conybeare replied, "I have given private notice." The Speaker--The notice must be made in writing. Mr. Cunningham-Graham then asked whether General Warren had already resigned. Mr. Smith, the Government leader, replied, "No." [A full account of the previous Whitechapel murder appeared in THE CITIZEN of the 23rd October.]
