THE WHITECHAPEL MURDERS.
The detective officers continued their investigations yesterday, but up to a late hour last night no arrest had been made, neither is there any prospect of an arrest being effected. The public of the neighbourhood continue to make statements, which are committed to writing at Commercial street station, and in several instances the police have been made cognisant of what the informants consider to be suspicious movements of individuals whose appearance is supposed to tall with that of the man wanted. Every clue given by the public in their zeal to assist the police has been followed up, but without success, and the lapse of time, it is feared, will lessen the chances of discovering the perpetrator of the crime.
ONE HUNDRED POUNDS REWARD - The Whitechapel Murder
The proprietor of the Illustrated Police News offers the above reward to any person who will give information as to the perpetrator of the crime of the murder of Mrs. Chapman. The above reward will be paid upon conviction of the murderer. Office, No. 286, Strand.
