HAVE THEY GOT HIM NOW?

A Doctor Arrested by Scotland Yard Detectives

IS HE THE WHITECHAPEL FIEND?

He Resembles the Gentleman Seen With the Latest Victim

London, Nov.19--[Special]--Over London the Whitechapel murders wtill hang like a pall. Arrests of suspect have ben numerous, but one after another they have been discharged. Great importance, however is attached to an arrest made on Saturday. The Birmingham police have lately watched a man whom they suspected because of his habit of travelling to London on Saturdays. On the arrival of the train at Euston station he stepped out of the carriage briskly and was at once arrested and taken to Scotland Yard for examination. What gives particular force to the suspicion is that the prisoner is a doctor formerly holding a good position and large practice, but recently living in lodging houses. He greatly resembles the "gentleman" seen in company with the latest victim on the morning of the murder. Should he prove to be the criminal, the police will at once be rehabilitated.
