    Jerry Dunlop located this one by William Thackeray...refers to a Guzzling Jimmy and a Gorging Jack..

    HERE were three sailors of Bristol City
    Who took a boat and went to sea,
    But first with beef and captain's biscuits,
    And pickled pork they loaded she.


    There was a gorging Jack, and guzzling Jimmy,
    And the youngest he was little Billee.
    Now when they'd got as far as the Equator,
    They'd nothing left but one split pea.


    Says gorging Jack to guzzling Jimmy,
    "I am extremely hungaree."
    To gorging Jack says guzzling Jimmy,
    "We've nothing left, us must eat we."

    Says gorging Jack to guzzling Jimmy,
    "With one another we shouldn't agree!
    There's little Bill, he's young and tender,
    We're old and tough, so let's eat he."

    "O Billy! we're going to kill and eat you,
    So undo the button of your chemie."
    When Bill received this information,
    He used his pocket-handkerchief.

    "First let me say my catechism,
    Which my poor mother taught me."
    "Make haste! make haste!" says guzzling Jimmy,
    While Jack pulled on his snicker-snee.


    Then Bill went up to the main-top-gallant-mast,
    And down he fell on his bended knee,
    He scarce had come to the Twelfth Commandment
    When up he jumps--"There's land I see!"

    "Jerusalem and Madagascar,
    And North and South Amerikee,
    There's the British flag a-riding at anchor,
    With Admiral Napier, K.C.B."

    So when they got aboard of the Admiral's,
    He hanged fat Jack and flogged Jimmee,
    But as for little Bill, he made him
    The captain of a Seventy-three.

    Thanks How,

    The article mentions two men who were being tailed as ripper suspects as late as September 1889. I wonder how many police officials, doctors etc. truly believed Mary Jane Kelly was the last victim?

    The Story of "Guzzling Jim"

    Howard mentioned Guzzling Jim in post #171 of this thread. I found a lengthy news clip about GJ. He was tracked for eighteen months. Some of the clipping is unreadable but you can get the idea.

    This guy had a hard head and a soft butt it seems.
    Arrested three times...I wonder if he got in trouble again down the road.

    Something from a paper we here on the Forums have seldom used.
    Notice the remarks about the odor emanating from the poor woman's torso.
    The perp in the Pinchin Street Torso crime was pretty lucky no one smelled him & his ill-gotten load,eh ?

    The name Elizabeth Roberts caught my eye.
    Wasn't this the name of the woman who was murdered by her sister ( Kate Marshall ) in 1898 in Dorset Street ??

    That covers most of what one might find ( at least in the source I used) using only 1 search term word...."Ripper"...for the year 1889. From William Bury all the way to Frederick Brett on the last day of the year.

    Up next, 1890 In The News...again using the same single search term.
