      Hi George,

      Once again, it's Michael Richards's theory that Schwartz narrated his story as part of a conspiracy to pervert the course of justice, by implicating a Gentile [just the one] he claimed had assaulted Stride out on the street. It's also worth noting that Schwartz put the assault a full fifteen minutes before the time Louis D had already given for his discovery of her body on the club's premises.

      But once again, Schwartz did not implicate a Gentile with his initial statement. Not even close. He presumed the assailant had called out "Lipski" to an accomplice of that name, who had then chased him from the scene. He implicated an assailant with a Jewish accomplice. It was down to Abberline to reinterpret this as most probably one Gentile assailant acting alone, who used "Lipski" as an anti-Semitic insult aimed at the obviously Jewish Schwartz, while the third man - Pipeman - was just another innocent witness caught up in the situation.

      I think most of us who believe the assault happened have accepted Abberline's reinterpretation as the correct one, and that therefore Schwartz himself was confused over the dynamics of the situation and read it the wrong way. Under further questioning he admitted as much, which makes no sense if he saw it Abberline's way to begin with.

      In short, Schwartz didn't set out to implicate a Gentile with his story, as Michael Richards has repeatedly insisted. That only happened through Abberline's intervention.

      I apologise if you were not wrong-footed by anything posted by Michael Richards. It just looked that way, from the similar difficulty you had with how Schwartz originally reported the incident.

      Love,

      Caz

      Ive mentioned so many times I should just save the post and re-post it for all the challenged readers, the fact that at one point Israel said he thought that the man was calling to Pipeman calling him Lipski is likely a reference to Israel suddenly on the scene. The authorities saw it as an antisemitic remark to Israel, but what could they possibly know Caz? Oh yeah, they also erased actual evidence they felt was antisemitic that same night. Coincidinky eh?

        I thought the same thing, Gary.

        Equally, if the killer was still in the yard to hear the pony and cart, he couldn't have afforded to assume it was going to go straight on past, and he'd have been wrong if he had done so. Surely he'd have erred on the side of caution and ducked out of sight if he might have been visible from the entrance.

        Having said that, the place was busy enough in any case to have sent the killer packing - whoever he was - as soon as the deed was done. The knife and the fatal wound are enough proof of his intention to silence this woman for good, regardless of the risks of being seen there.

        Love,

        Sent the killer packing? Why? He could just plop his knife into the soapy water in the kitchen, whose door was ajar, and head upstairs with the rest of the men. It was a single slice, there would be very little on that blade anyway.

          Thames Tunnel.

          Reckon it was still used by horse and cart at night.

          Here is the route referred to by Varqm.

                That was the original plan, but I think only the pedestrian stairway access made it off of the drawing board - access for vehicles was never built (at least, not until it was turned into a train tunnel).

                • Reckon the cart was led through the tunnel in the dark.

                  He could have used 5 different bridges.

                  He could have swum for all I care.

                        We'll knowing about the possible route Diemschutz took from Crystal Palace, knowing the bridges and tunnel that worked in 1888, is more important than the The Five .

                            I really don't know what you were trying to say here, Michael.

                            The point is surely why Schwartz would have said anything about initially thinking Pipeman was an accomplice called Lipski, if you believe his remit was to give the police 'another' murder by a lone maniac, who was neither Jewish nor associated with the club?? Why introduce the idea of an accomplice to begin with, and then make it ambiguous as to whom the name Lipski may have been addressed?

                            The interpretation Abberline [the 'authorities'] arrived at may or may not have been the correct one. I don't give a rat's arse either way. But it wasn't Schwartz's when he made his statement.

                            How hard can this be to grasp?

                              personally I've always assumed they opened inwards, as outwards seems to me very unusual in a well-regulated city - gates opening outwards would obstruct the passage along the buildings.

                              The pertinent testimony seems to be the following:

                              The first witness called was William West, of 40, Berner-street, Commercial-road, printer. He said:-I live on the premises. It is the International Working Men's Club. There are two windows on the ground floor facing the street, and the door opens into the same street.

                              Coroner.-At the side of the house there is a passage into a yard?

                              Witness.-Yes, sir.

                              There are two wooden gates at the entrance to the yard?-Yes, sir; they open into the street. The first passage into the club leads into a room, and the door opens out of this passage.

                              Are the gates ever closed?-They are open at all hours of the day, but are mostly closed at night.

                              Is the door generally closed?-Not till the members leave.
                              While this could be understood to mean they physically swing into the street, I suggest it means - as it does in the description about the door - that passing through the open gates, one enters the street. The gates themselves would be opened by pushing them inwards, towards the yard.

                              This is also the case in the illustration in the Illustrated Police News October 6th drawing, entitled The Fifth victim of the Whitechapel Fiend (bottom left on the page)

                              Also the inquest testimony of PC Lamb states "The feet of the deceased extended just to the swing of the gate, so that the barrier could be closed without disturbing the body"

                              It's relevant, as you mention, when thinking about which direction the murderer could have fled - if the gates opened inwards, as I'm sure they did, theoretically he could have hid pressed up between the wall and the gate.

                              It's also relevant to note Lamb's comment, as it perhaps implies that the murderer opened the gates himself, pushing Stride's legs aside perhaps. At least, as NBFN remarked some time ago, it does not look like a coincidence that the gate swings exactly clear of her legs.

                              • "There are two wooden gates at the entrance to the yard?-Yes, sir; they open into the street. The first passage into the club leads into a room, and the door opens out of this passage."

                                Its referring to access, not the way the gates swing - giving direct access to the street.
                                Other accounts tell that the gates open back, meaning back to the wall. Gates were not allowed to swing across the sidewalk/footpath as that obstructs the right of way.
                                In many reports we read the gates were often left open, especially when Diemschitz was out on his cart.
