London, 12th July. 10 a.m.
The London Daily Telegraph publishes an article today demanding prompt and effective reorganisation of the Scotland Yard Detective Force. The failure to trace the perpetrator of the recent Whitechapel murders, and other similar miscarriages of justice are referred to, and it is declared that the public will not any longer tolerate the present state of inefficiency.
London, 11th September.
The man who was arrested on suspicion of having committed the Whitechapel murders is elderly and insane, and his complicity in the affair is uncertain.
