JACK THE RIPPER ARRESTED

Inspector Byrne Nabs a Murderer and Locks Him Up

New York, April 26.

Inspector Byrne, at 3 o'clock this afternoon, arrested the second engineer of the Red D Line steamer Philadelphia, laying at her pier in the East river, and turning his prisoner over to some of his men, had him taken to headquarters. The arrest was made by the Inspector alone and unaided. The description of the man corresponds almost identically with "Jack the Ripper", the murderer of Carrie Brown. The name of the prisoner could not be ascertained. Inspector Byrnes arrested another man besides the engineer as a witness.
