This sounds like the Cutbush connection to me, as it appears that young Thomas' father - Thomas Taylor Cutbush - was in Australia in the period mentioned in the article, and in the cities mentioned as well.
The fact that he deserted Thomas at a very young age, and took another wife whilst still married to Thomas' mother, could be seen as acts which contributed to the murders of 1888.

And is Councillor Tully barking up the wrong tree. . .
Cr Tully is still looking for crucial evidence he believes could establish the Ripper's identity once and for all, a handwriting sample to match with letters believed sent by the Ripper to taunt police during his gruesome killing spree.
"I am hopeful of matching the Ripper's letter with my suspect's handwriting.
"Of course, that will only prove my suspect wrote the letter, which may not have been from the murderer, but it's a pretty distinct connection."
