    The IPN article is dated July 7th, 1883.
    However, the incident occurred on June 16th ( a Saturday ) in Liverpool.

      Thanks, Howard. I'm thinking there will be a follow-up report on their actual trial.

        If so, I was unable to find it in the Liverpool Mercury.

            Thanks, How. This has all been very interesting. I wonder if the poor chap ever got compensated for the damage?

                Cheers, How, but that one's already been posted on this thread! Different paper, different date, exactly the same text.

                    Yeah, How, it's entirely your fault that articles were syndicated in the 1890s, dammit.

                      Phil:

                      I'll keep an eye out for any stories in this vein in the future.

                        The Star, Largest Circulation of Any Evening Paper in the Kingdom.
                        LONDON. SATURDAY, 17 NOVEMBER, 1888.

                        Revenged on "Jack the Ripper."

                        At Liverpool yesterday a young man named Bramwell was charged with damaging a wax figure at an exhibition. Mr. Raffles asked what the figure was, and he was informed that it was the figure of "Jack the Ripper." Bramwell had only landed in Liverpool two days previously from Canada, and on seeing the figure at the exhibition he expressed a determination to smash it. - He was ordered to pay the damage and costs.
