"Jack the Ripper Company, Ltd."

Post by Karen on Thu 16 May 2013 - 18:23


LONDON, January 17.

A delightful illustration of the pleasant methods adopted by a peculiar class of workmen is provided by a case which was heard at Church, near Accrington, yesterday. Albert Bushion, a weaver, was committed for trial on a charge of breaking into Providence Mill and Church Tanpits Mill, and maliciously damaging 621 warps. Bushion, it was stated, was formerly employed at Providence Mill, and the outrage was committed after his discharge. The damage amounted to 690 pounds. The following extraordinary letter, which prisoner had sent to the firm, was read in court: - "Jack the Ripper Company, Ltd. Dear Sir, - We regret for the outrage, but it had to be done under captain's orders of our little band of Textile Jack the Ripper Company, Ltd. We received complaints from your weavers about sticking to wages. Don't push about drawing the beams in, for we will give you another call before long. We will burn the place next time. You must beware, we are armed with revolvers. If any arrest is made we will blow out your brains. There is a few more mills already in our list. If any policeman dare to arrest our little band he will be killed on the spot. - Yours truly, The Textile Jack the Ripper Company, Ltd., with a few shares for sale." On the back was drawn a pistol, and beneath it was written the word "warning." The prisoner reserved his defence. Are such threats to murder permitted to be made with impunity? The event will show. If so, we seem to be in for something like a "Reign of Terror," as various other labour troubles are said to be impending.
