A Blood Stained Overcoat

New York, Oct. 10.
The Morning Journal's special from London says: An arrest, which the police think is important in connection with the series of Whitechapel murders, has been made.

On Wednesday a stranger called at a shop in the Gray's Inn Road with an overcoat to be cleaned. The garment was spattered with blood stains, especially the pockets, which were dyed red. The proprietor of the shop thought the incident suspicious and informed the police. Detectives were secreted in the premises. The suspect called for the clothing and was at once taken into custody. He refused to give an account of himself or explain the presence of the blood stains on his clothing. He was held a prisoner, and a searching investigation is being made.
