"Sir Charles Warren Resigns"
London, Nov. 12-- Gen. Sir Charles Warren, Chief of the Metropolitan Police, has tendered his resignation. It is understood that this action is due to the severe criticisms that have been made upon his efficiency recently in connection with the Whitechapel murders.
In the House of Commons this afternoon Mr. Matthews, the Home Secretary, announced the resignation of Gen. Warren as Chief of the Metropolitan Police. The announcement was greeted with cheers.
Mr. W.H. Smith, the Government leader, said that an extra estimate would be presented to meet the expenses of the Parnell Commission. He also said that application had been made to the Irish Government for access to certain documents, and that leave to examine these documents would be granted to the counsel of both the Times and the Parnellites under certain conditions.
