Was Chapman Jack the Ripper The police are forming some strange theories as to the antecedent history of the condemned criminal Chapman. These theories are not unconnected with the Wrhitechapel atrocities. which were attributed to "Jack the Ripper." T;> police have found that at the time of the perpetration of the first two murders Klosowski was, undoubtedly, occupying a lodging in George-yard, Whitechapel-road. where the first murder was committed. More- over, he always carried a black bag, and wore a "P. and 0." cap. The man who was "wanted" in connection with the Whitechapel murders always wore a "P. and 0." cap. and carried a black bag, according to the tale of some of the women who escaped him bv the merest chance. The London detectives have found that he went to New Jersey City soon after the Whitechapel atrocities ceased, and that he opened a barber s shop there. It will be remembered that soon after the murders ceased in London crimes of a similar character began to be perpetrated in America.
