The newspapers have ceased to take an excited view of the recent Whitechapel murders. In commenting upon the failure of the police to find the murderer they do not blame the police for not apprehending the criminal, but rather reproach them for arresting innocent persons, and say that it is another example of Scotland Yard losing its head. This, they claim, is due to Sir Charles Warren's military ways and his ignorance of his professional duties. The police admit that they have not the slightest clew upon which to work.
