ORIGINAL JACK THE RIPPER
Under Sentence of Death in London for Killing Women

New York, March 23.
A London dispatch was printed here today alleging that George Chapman, who was convicted of the murder of several women in London, was the original Jack the Ripper. It was further stated that Chapman had opened a barber shop in Jersey City some years ago and that soon after his arrival there a repetition of these Jack the Ripper murders occurred in Jersey City. According to the dispatch, he was a Pole, his real name being Klosowski. Investigation by the Jersey City police today failed to show any trace of Klosowski or Chapman.
