    July 1889

    July of 1889 began with the umpteenth report of some drunk making gestures...and going off to four bare walls and one cold floor for a fortnight.
    Didn't these yahoos know what happened to those who committed the same stupid offenses ? This is a very common theme throughout late 1888 all the way into the upcoming decade.
    Just as a personal observation, I don't recall whether any of the men who perpetrated these shenanigans ever had their act backfire on them and wind up being killed themselves.

    This Mancunian paper asks the question...
    ....within just a few weeks, it would be answered with the MacKenzie murder.

    In a few newspapers which appeared less than a week before the following excerpt,one finds that the police were said to have dismissed this Torso from consideration as a Ripper murder.
    However, the CNA had this to say about the matter.....

    Snafu

    A kupla days ago, I put up a brief article mentioning a Bishop who made remarks alluding to sweeping changes and improvements in Whitechapel in 1889 as a result of Jack's skein.

    Reynold's saw things differently :

    Posted only as an example of it being one of several instances where an article mentioning Florence Maybrick or James Maybrick appeared along articles on the Ripper either in direct or peripheral connectivity.

    Of course,since the WM and the Maybrick case appeared during the same decade as each other, we would expect that to be the norm. That goes without saying.

    However, in the future decades ahead, newspapers that I trawl and of course that other researchers trawl as well, we see that occurring on more than a few occasions.
