IS HE "JACK THE RIPPER"?

A Young Aristocrat Accused of Murdering a Scarlet Woman

London, Dec. 5.
On Nov. 26 it was announced that a mysterious murder had been committed in Kensington, a western suburb of this metropolis. The body of a comely woman of the unfortunate class, about 30, was found in a frequented thoroughfare, Holland Vila's (sic) road, Kensington, with ther throat cut. Some of the London newspapers claimed that this murder seemed to be a crime of the class committed by "Jack the Ripper". It is announced that a young man named Reginald Saunderson, son of Mr. Llewellyn Saunderson, a prominent gentleman of the county of Dublin, has been arrested and charged with the crime.

It has transpired that one of the places visited by Saunderson was Monckstown. While there he wrote an unsigned letter in which he admitted his guilt. This letter fell into the hands of the Scotland Yard authorities and was one of the clews that led to his arrest.
