The Murderer Found

London, February 16.
The latest discovery made by the police in connection with the Whitechapel murder bids fair to connect the man Sadler now in custody with this Jack the Ripper crime. The police now have in their possession a sharp, dangerous looking knife stained with blood and showing traces of having recently been washed.

The blood stains were examined microscopically by Dr. Phillips, the police surgeon attached to the Leman street police station. Dr. Phillips has no doubt that the stains are those of human blood. This formidable knife has been traced to the possession of Sadler, who as already stated was a fireman on board a steamer which recently arrived from Turkey. The police have no doubt that Sadler was the murderer of Carrotty Nell. From the time that it became known that Sadler had been arrested and was formally charged with the murder of Carrotty Nell, the greatest excitement has prevailed in and about Whitechapel. The police station where the prisoner is detained is surrounded by a vast crowd of people, mostly women. The women are eager for a sight of the prisoner. Wild threats of lynching and tearing the prisoner to pieces were uttered by the most excited of these females. When the man was removed to the police court an immense force of police was employed and every precaution was necessary in order to prevent the Whitechapel mob from lynching the man.

Opinions differ as to whether the man charged with the murder of Carrotty Nell is the murderer known as Jack the Ripper. The inhabitants of Whitechapel believe that he is, but the police have not committed themselves to an opinion on the subject up to the present time.
