        Take a look at what http://www.nambour-chronicle.com is doing. It's an archive of the Nambour Chronicle & North Coast Advertiser first published in 1903.

          Hi all,

          From The West Australian News, 2 Oct 1888 in the foreign telegrams section (spelling mistakes and all)

          THE MYSTERIOUS MURDERS IN
          ? ENGLAND.
          TWO MORE VICTIMS.
          London, Sept. 30, 6.30 p.m.
          At 2.20 p.m. to-day, a woman, ap-

          parently abont thirty-five years of age,

          was discovered murdered at the junction

          of Leadenhall and - Feuchurch- streets.
          Her body was completely disembowelled
          and the nose severed from the face.

          About an hour earlier another woman

          was found with her throat cut from> ear

          to .'ear, in the backyard pf a honse in
          Berner streets
          '?"'-'? 03.0 p,m;
          There is .intense excitement in . the
          city concerning the fearful murders re-

          ported to-day. v The horrors of the Ald-

          gate innrder totally eclipse the details

          of those which took place in Whitechapel.

          As yet no arrests have been made. It

          is doubted if the Berner street murder

          belongs to the same class as the others

            Thanks for that stuff. I could be wrong here, but I think that right from the start the British press assumed the two murders were by the same hand, so it's interesting to see doubt expressed.

            This is from the Chronicle Oct 24th 1924, about the retirement of Det-Insp Scholes. Two murders in the same street is a new one on me.
