Speaking to Stewart today, he thought there was a link between Parnell and the Fenians involved in the Phoenix Park murders.

Anyone for a talk on the similarity of the knives used in those 1884 political crimes and the Ripper murders and the whole idea of a Irish nationalist conspiracy to commit the Whitechapel crimes to shame the British government?

Of course there's Alan Sharp's London Correspondence: Jack the Ripper and the Irish Press.

The idea of W. T. Stead going down on the Belfast-built Titanic could be the basis of a talk on Stead and White Slavery.

It's perhaps not well known that Stead's accusation that Jews were to blame for prostitution in the East End led in 1885 to enlightened Anglo-Jews such as Constance Rothschild, Lady Battersea (1843-1931) forming the Jewish Association for the Protection of Girls and Women (JAPGW).

The JAPWG was the liberal Jewish establishment's response to Stead's anti-White Slavery campaign and was created to fight those elements who exploited recently arrived Eastern European females and forced them into prostitution or sent them on to brothels in North and South America. This is something I cover in my upcoming book, A to Z of Jack the Ripper and the Jews: Aarons to Zverieff.

Baron Russell of Killowen (1832-1900), defense counsel for Florence Maybrick and also Attorney General under Gladstone, was born in Newry and lived in the Rostrevor area of Northern Ireland, in the Mountains of Mourne. If we ran a bus tour down there, I could also show folks the monument on the shoreline of Carlingford Lough to Major General Robert Ross who burned the White House in 1814.

Too cool for school

I, for one wish I had made that conference as it is not often that two of my interests collide like this. Titanic and Jack The Ripper meet up, fancy that.

Of course it is second hand I guess unless the real JTR was actually on the Titanic when it sank. Now there is a thought or theory that I thought (lol) that I would throw out there. Wish I had seen this a whole lot sooner.

George - I'm only commenting on your post without seeing if you're referring to anything else but - it never happened. There has not been a Conference in Belfast. This year's one is being held by the Whitechapel Society 1888 in London and there's more speakers than you can shake a walking stick with a demon head at.

Thank You, I wondered why I never heard anything of the said conference on the Titanic forums. Now I know.

Thanks Nemo for the information. Hopefully I can save up my pennies for that.
