♦ The London correspondent of the " New Zealand Times'* cays: "One suggestion made for the upprehension of the murder fiend ia a good one. It is proposed to get a few muEcular young men, of medium height, dress them as women, and have them well armed, to act as 1 decoys ' m the East End, say m Aldgat", the Whitechapel and Commercial roads, a-i well as m tho neighborhood of tho Winoriea and Ifadcliff Higway. Theso 1 decoye,' it is thought, may be a le m ' time to meet tne fiend, and then if ho attempted any of his peculiar tactics they ' could fire upon him, bo as to lead to his arrest. I hear on very good authority that several young medical students, prompted by the spirit of adventure so [ Btrong m this clasß, as well as for tho ; substantial reward offered, have for ; several nights past promenaded the above localities, thoroughly well difguiaed and I above all well armed, but at iho time of writing, beyond ordinary adventures, they have not had much success. The theory that wild harum-scarum medical students were hoaxing tho public by thus disposing of female ' tubjectp/ is exploded by the fact that m almost each case the victim has been identified.'
