A NEW JACK THE RIPPER

San Francisco, Feb. 13.
The police are inclined to believe there is a stranger in this city, whose mania is to equal, or possibly eclipse the record of London's notorious Jack the Ripper. Within the last few days a young girl on Morton street has been strangled to death by an unknown assassin, and several other women in the same vicinity have been beaten, stabbed and strangled, in each of the latter cases the assailant escaping without leaving a trace by which he could be detected.

The night prior to the murder of "Little May Smith," a man bearing the appearance of a thug entered the room of a young girl who had assumed the name of Lulu Taber on Morton street, but she raised the alarm and he escaped.
