When Alice McKenzie, the last of the Whitechapel victims of Jack the Ripper, was found murdered on the morning of the 17th ult., her body was discovered on a spot which two constables had passed within twenty five minutes of each other. The constabulary, detectives and police have been so long at fault in discovering the perpetrator of this famous series of crimes that one begins to think of looking for Jack in uniform or wearing some badge of authority. Alice McKenzie was last seen on the street by a woman between 11:30 and 12 o'clock at night. At 12:15 o'clock a constable had his supper under the very lamp where the victim was afterwards found, and at the time the constable was so occupied no one was near. Another constable was there at 12:25 o'clock, and the place was then all right. The officer next entered the alley at 12:50 o'clock and it was between those times that the murder must have been done. When the body was discovered no one was about and nothing suspicious had been seen. The conviction is growing that either Jack wears an invisible coat or a blue one, or possible a gingham dress and a bonnet, by means of which he can walk about with impunity and seek his opportunities for murder unobserved.
