London, Nov. 14.
In the House of Commons yesterday the home secretary stated that the resignation of General Sir Charles Warren, as chief of the metropolitan police, was due to his refusal to submit to the rule which forbids officials to publicly criticise a government servant. The police are confident they are on the right track of the Whitechapel murderer. Two persons have been found who saw the man that accompanied the last victim to her room on the night that she was murdered. Their descriptions of the man tally in every respect.
