THE LONDON MURDERS
REPORTED ARREST OF JACK THE RIPPER
London, January 15.
A rumour has obtained currency to the effect that Jack the Ripper, the alleged author of the recent Whitechapel horrors, has been captured, and a wild sensation has been created in the metropolis in consequence. Up to the present, however, the police have received no confirmation of the report, which is generally discredited.
