THE DOUGLAS TRAGEDY. COOPER IN THE WEENEgS-BOX. , HIS STORY OF THE FATAL QUAKSEL, The resumption, of tbe enquiry into the dwaun-rtanees attending the tragic death of Edith Annie Cooper, who is supposed to have been murdered by her husband, Georjje Barker James Cooper, at the Recent Hotel, Douglas, on September 3, was resumed before Ileemster Drmkwater and a jury at Douglas at eleven o'clock yesterday morning. The court was again thronged, among the audience being some of the most jnfiuentialpeopleinthe island. The father, sister and brother of the debased were again present. The Manx Attorney-General (Sir James GeU) and Mr. James Gell prosecuted and Mr. G. A. Ring and Mr. T. Knew defended. Mr. Ring resumed the case for the defence by eaU:ng as witness the prisoner, GT Barker James Cooper, wbo was sworn stand-mpr in the dock. In answer to Mr. Ring, prisoner said I came over to the Isle of Man witil my Sbyhe Fleetwood route on 2nd September. We fiad a private cabin, and were together a good deal during the passage! bat not constantly. There was no quarrel er dispute of sny description, and we were on qnite affectionate terms. I ordered and sent things mto the private cabin, and took her into the dining-saloon to see if she would have dinner, but she was unable through sea-sickness to do so. On onr arrival we went, as on former occasions, to tbe Resent Hotel, and my wife went upstairs to her room I stayed in the hall for a time. I went to bed acout nine o'clock, and I resrained in the room until eight o clock next morning, with one exception. (At this point counsel complained of inconvenience through examining the prisoner in the dock, and he was placed in the witess-box.) Prisoner, continuing, said, "I went downstairs once during the night, at my wife's request, to get her some champagne, as she felt -rery ill. Not being able to tret coampagiia I brought har a bottle of soda water. We vent to sleep again, and nothing eke occurred until rooming, at eight o'clock, when I went downstairs. I had some rum and milk, one class. It is an unos-al thing for me to take. I breakfasted, tat my wife had nothing at ail. She refused to take anything to eat, feeling too ill. I gave orders for a small bottle of champagne between 9.30 and 10, as she asked for it, and it was brought to her by O'Brien, the chambermaid. My ! wife drank one glass, and the remainder was put on the washstand. I drank none. Then I went ont on to tbe landing, and shortly afterwards took a trap fromi the front door and drove to Mr. 'Bra-Shaw's, X Went' with him to Dumbell's Bank, stayed there for a few minutes, and drove slowly back to the Regent I asked ' Bradshaw to come in and have some champagne. He went in the smoke-room, and I, having paid the cabman, went upstairs. I wanted to see if my wife was up, because I intended taking her to the north of the island for the week end. My father has a house at Sulby, and I was under the belief that my sister was staying there Bt the time. In going up the stairs my intention was to return at once to Bradshaw. When I got into the bedroom I found my wife still in bed. (At this point tbe Attorney-General asked that the prisoner should tell his own story, and not be led by counsel) Prisonerwent on : My wife was lying on ber back in the centre of the bed ; she was awake. I spoke first, and asked her when sbe was going to get up, as I wished to go over to the north to spend the day with my sister. I asked her how. she felt. She said she felt very ill. . Referring to the I visit to Sulby, she said she had nothing to go in, as she had not come prepared to pay visits, and that I should not care if she went in rags. That remark irritated me very much. What reply did you make? I told her I never grudged her anything, and it was not just to make a remark of that sort. She said, "You needn't brag about what you have given roe." My temper is very tasty, as everybody knows, and I was worked up by these words until I became very much annoyed, and other words passed. I can't remember what tbey were ; I was too much excited. We were both at it. Mr. Ring : What kind of words were they ? They were hot words, Had you done anything after coming into tbe room? Yea; I washed my hands. I had left the door open, and closed it at her request. You know the knife that has been shown? Yes. Where was that knife when you came into the room ? On the dressing-table. Was it closed or open ? Closed. Did you take that knife into your hands? I did, after wishing my hands, to clean and pare my nails. Didyo-takeitrayotir hands for any other purpose whatever ? Not the slightest. After our hot words there was a kind of lull What did you do then ? I came and sat on the side of tbe bed next tho door. My wife was just then lying on my right side. What took place then? I asked her if she would take some breakfast in bed. as she could not dt up. She refused. I said, "You know you have had nothing to take since leaving Manchester on Friday' morning, except champagne and brandy, and, with sailing, you may well feel ill. Get something on your stomach." She made a very nasty speech to this effect, " Do you call me a drunkard':" As that was said Tery sharply, and I thought she was in a very nasty temper, I said, " I did not say so." She said, u Then you thialc me as big & liar yixirself." There were other passionate words a good maiiv on both sides and then I got a stingi-tr blow in the face from my poor wife. She struck me on the right cheek with her fist ; off went my. glasses, and I struck her back again. I was not looking at her when the struck. At the moment I struck I hadn't the slightest thought of the knife, which had been all the time in my hand. She gave a slight scream, and said, " George, you have cut me.' She said nothing more. I saw then there was a wound with blood corning from it, I steeped a towel in water- and bathed the wound. Did it occur to you that it was serious ? No ; I thought it was only a okia wound. She seemed to be fainting. What did you do ? I moved her. I lifted her bodily towards the washstand, putting my arms round her. My object was to get her close to the wter and bathe her. When I took her off the bed she c juld not stand. Her feat fell very heavily on the floor, oad I concluded that she bad fainted. 1 put her on the ground, cut her nightdress (partly in order to get it oS), and continued to bathe her with water, with anything I could lay my hands on sheets, linen, towels, anything that was about. I still never thought it serious or fatal, but thought she was in a dead faint. She had been in them before, and took some time to get out. I recollect the knocking at the door, and Mr. Weldon asking me to open it. I can't remember any prior knocking, for I was so bewildered that I did not know what to do or think. The door was not locked before the injury was inflicted, I am quite certain. It was when I had to lift her out of oed that I looked it, fearing lest anyone might come in and see her while she was undressed. I opened tbe door as soon as I could lav her down and get to it. I heard Mr, Weldon and Connock say that she was dead, but I hardly credited it. I can't remember anything else I said, or what was said to me ; I was quite dazed. Cross-examined by the Attorney-General, tbe prisoner said : We were on good terms during the passage to the inland, and all during that nigtit. When I got up at about eight o'clock she was not properly awake. I told her I was going to the bank to do what I had come across for, to settle with Mr. Bradshaw. That was all I came for. I have never been away without her yet : wo always went tocetber. We were to return either on the Monday or Saturday. It was arranged that we were to eome to the island perhaps three months ago. I gave a three months bill, and it was understood that we were to come when it was due. She knew three months before. When I returned with Bradshaw I did not enter the room untill about 11 o'clock, but I cannot fix the exact time. You have given us an account of what took place. Is that a trae and correct account ? Entirely bo. And you cannot remember any other words said by yon or her ? No. When did you form the idea of going north ? Coming over on the boat we had discussed it. but on this morning there was nothing said except what I have told vou. I spoke a little sharply to her about getting np. I do not mean that I spoke offensively, but quickly. I swear there was nothing in my tone or manner to give her offence. I really believed she was unwell, and had not got over the effects of gea sickness. She had not vomited in the night. On the previous day she had not objected in the slightest to going to the north of the island, or of having no olothes. We were both becoming angry, but I can remember no more words. I used no epithets to her. Having washed my bands. I took up the knife, and was paring my nails with it when sitting on the edge of the bed. It was the knife I generally used for the purpose, and I took it from my dressing-case the first mg in tbe morning, and used it alter the first washing. The blow I got on the face was a left-banded one. The knife was in my right hand, and when I got the blow I struck back, forgetting the fc-ife. When yon found that she was cut you merely thought it a surface cut? That is so. I have heard tbe description of the wound, and I am not at all conscious of tbe knife having entered her body in the way spoken of. I was dazed, and just knew enough to try and bring her round. When I struck at her she was lying half raised on the pillows. She had her ni-htdress on, and the knife, if it cut her, cut through her nightdress. After that I am in entire ignorance of what took place except with regard to my efforts to bring her round. When the doctor told me she was dead. I acted like a machine. I bathed the wound and her forehead. There was not much blood came from the wound. W by did iron take the nightdress off her ? Because it was wet Sert I used. I don't know whether she bad any other clothing on. After her faintms I taedto J.ft her again, and got my cuffs soiled, so I took my shirt off. I do not know, what became of xhe coUar Which I was wearing. I put the shirt into a drawer in the wardrobe as soraxas I took it off liter Mr. Weldon went out. and before others ?L fnl dressed mvself.Why did you take Mrs. Ccer out ofted ? It was to ge her near to the wasb-fiSn to batbe ber. 'I can give you no idea oi the time which elapsed from her saying she was cut until Mr. Wldonrame.

Have yon say doubt about erring them to he? ? Prisoner : It W useless asking m I bad bad too much absinthe, and knew nothing. I think I was not intoxicated on Tatas-day. On the Friday she told me that I bad blackened her. eyes the other night. I had no reason for disbelieving her ; she. always spoke the truth tome. She' did not mention any other marks. The only explanation I can give of the marks on tbe arms is that I gripped her tightly m assisting her upstairs on the Friday night I suppose that what my brother-in-law and sister-in-law have said about my treatment of my wife is true. Do you know a lady called Mrs. Hunt ? Has it aoythingito do with the case ? Hi3 Honour : For all I know, it may have. Prisoner : We had a lady of that name in oar employ ; previous to that she married a bank clerk named Hdat,.: in Liverpool, who spent all her savings and then she had to-do the best she could for herself, and came to us. That was in 1885. I had heard that she left Hunt fram himself, and from bis solicitor. ', The Attorney-General : Have you not heard it from herself? Prisoner (after hesitation) : I have ; she lived with Hunt while in our employ. Mr. Ring objected to this as irrelevant; and meant to prejudice the prisoner in regard to another case, 'that of divorce. The Attorney-General : I have a right to put these questions, and prisoner has a right to say that ho refuses to answer. His Honour held that the questions might be put to test the credit of the witness, and the Attorney-General said the prisoner's relations with Mrs. Hunt bore on the question of motive in this ease. Prisoner : Mrs. Hunt wsb in onr employ some eight years ago, when she told me she bad left her husband. Did you take a furnished house at Matlock Bath, and. live there with her ? That is a question for divorce proceedings". I refuse to say when I saw ber Jast.No. further cross-examination was made. By the Jury: When I went upstairs to wash my hands I took my coat off. I never attempted to remove the bloodstains from the bedclothes, I was not under the influence of drink in any way when this ocenrred. I don't think it' is a. fact I horsewhipped my wife, ias I stated to Miss Yeainan, 3y tbe Judga : Is it a fact that yon told ber yon had. horsewhipped your wife? I really can't remember. Is it a tact you told Miss Yeaman that yon would "pay the little devil out?" I don't remember that. Is it true you said yoa had an awful time with your wife, who had been "boozing?" I don't remember the conversation. I had bad quite enough to drink, but it is not very likely that I should speak like that to a barmaid about ray wife. Is it true that yon gave her a good borsewhiprjing tbe night before ? I have no recollection of doing it. Is it true that you bad "an awful tithe" with ber, and that she had been "boozing for a fortnight"? I am afraid the "boozing" was on my side. Had she been ' ' boozing " ? I don't wish to say so, The examination of tbe prisoner, which bad lasted three hours, then concluded, and tbe Court adjourned for lunch. On resuming, Frederick W. Friend, physician and surgeon, was called for tbe defence. He spoke to being present at the earlier portion of the past mortem examination of the body of 'Mrs. Cooper. As regarded the superficial wounds he in the main agreed with Dr.. Buston's evidence. He virtually accepted the definition pf the penetrating wound as given by Dr. Buxton. The puncture m the pulmonary artery was so small that there was a difficulty in making a probe enter it, and from such a puncture the bleeding would not be continuous. The first effect of such a wound be shock and fainting; the pulsation of the heart would not be so strong, and the bleeding would be slower. The collapse of tbe left lung indicated that Mrs. Cooper must have breathed some time after receiving the wound. Her dying would be a very gradual process, and it would be very difficult for a person outside the medical profession to distinguish when she ceased to exist. He tbooght tbat tbe prisoner was quite justified in assuming that she was stpll alive wben she was dead for some time. Witness had seen the knife and had heard tne prisoner's statement as to how the wound was caused. Mr. Kneen : Is it a reasonable or probable statement ? Witness : Reasonable. Is the knife such an instrument as with one hlow in the chest would be likely to cause death ? .Certainly not, unless it struck the heart or one of the large blood vessels. If it had only penetrated the lung it would not have caused death. Continuing, witness said that with a random blow of such a kpife the chances of a wound proving fatal were, very small. John Alfred Dearden, physician and . surgeon, . gave corroborative evidence. He agreed that it was most probable that the wound was inflicted in tbe way described by prisoner. The knife was a very improbable instrument to cause death with. In cross-examination by the Attorney-General: Witness Faid that the prisoner's account of the way the wound was inflicted was a most probable one. Ho assumed that the prisoner's story was true. Thomas Arthur Wood, physician and surgeon, also gave corroborative evidence. This closed tbe case, and the court adjourned -until this morning for the advocates' addresses and the summing Qp. - "JACK THE RIPPER" AGAIN. A STRANGE STORY PROM VIENNA. It seems that the veritable " Whitechapel murderer " has been discovered again. Unfortunately, or fortunately, however, the man is dead. The StamianPs Vienna correspondent writes : " With every precaution warranted by the circumstances, I take note of the tact' tbat in police circles in Vienna and Pesth it is considered very probable tbat Alois Szemeredy, tihe Vienna murderer, who committed suicide two days ago in Pressburs, is likely to be regarded in .England as likewise the perpetrator of all tbe ' Whitecbapel murders.' In July, 1876, at a bouse of ill-fame at Buenos Ayres, , Szemeredy mnrdered a girl named Carolina Mete by stabbing her. It is worth noting tbat even at that time he passed as a military surgeon. That he had some surgical experience seems to be undoubted. It is said by those who knew him at tbe time that he despatched many an undo whose nephews were impatient to succeed to their heritage. In one description of him it is said that 'a series of tombstones marked his path through Southern America.' To return to the murder in Buenos Ayres, there is a significant detail about that case yet to be mentioned. He managed to get away to Rio de Janeiro, and from this city be wrote anonymous letters to tbe authorities of Buenos Ayres, which remind the reader of the alleged lettorsof the Whitechapel murderer to Scotland Yard. Szemeredy, moreover, owned to having committed murders, but he called himself an insane man. He was .sentenced to death. . Nat only was the Austrian Legation moved to intervene on his behalf, but public opinion was excited, and denounced the execution of 'an insane man.' ." For five years the Argentine courts were occupied with him, until at length, in 1881, be was finally acquitted of the charge of murder, but sentenced to two-and-a-half years' imprisonment for theft previous to tbe murder. On his return to Hungary he was imprisonod as a deserter, and sent first to the Military ABylam, -and finally to the State Asylum near Pesth. He was released from the latter as cured in 1886. Between thiB date arid March, 1890, when he made the acquaintance of a widow who afterwards ived with him m Pesth, he is only known to have been away in North America. Early . in 1886, prior to leaving Hungary, he offered his memoirs to a Pesth newspaper, tbe Hgyetertts. A subeditor of that journal who received -him describes bim as 'a tali, thin man, about forty-five, with bronzed complexion, brown smooth hair, bushy moustache of peculiar form (which covered bis whole mouth), sensual, unsteady, small eyes, large muscular bands, and a habit of wearing his coat buttoned up to the chin in military fashion. About six months ago that is, during the erst aenes of tbe Vienna murders and the second the Pesth. police and newspapers received letters signed Jack the Ripper,' which at the time were considered a hoax., &meredy, like the Whitechapel murderer, came to Vienna to commit a crime and suddenly disappeared, coming again when the interest in tbe former case had died out. The disappearance of Szemeredy between 1886 and 1890 covers the time of 'the 'Whitechapel murders.' " n Woekhoos CoKMiTEKft.

During the recent manoeuvres at Freasham consider able darn3ge was done by the military to the roads in the district of Farnham Highway Board, and representations were made on the subject to the War Office. At a meeting of the Highway Board on Thursday, a letter was read offering 60. in settlement of any claim.' The Board, while accepting the money, directed a iep!y to be sent pointing out that that sum did not by any means cover tbe damage. At Blantyre, last week, a new smokeless fuel was tried. Beginning with the raw material coke-breeze, a hitherto waste product, obtainable in vast 'quantities the process of marruf acture was followed till tbe material appeared as tenacious blocks, capable of railway or ocean transport to any part of the world. The briquettes were used in the boiler raising steam for tbe machine, and burned with a brilliant flame, completely smokeless and of intense heat. The Rev.

There is in John Street Wesleyan Church, New York (tbe first built in the United States), the old clock presented by John Wesley. It keeps good time, and the old weights are still attached to it. Mr. H. O. Warrant applied to Mr. Justice Barnes in Chambers, oa Thursday, on behalf of the Hon. John Scott Montaeu, tbe Conservative member for the New Forest Division of Hampshire, for an order firing leave to. pay a barred and a disputed cialm in connection with tbe election expenses of that division ; and also for an order allowing an authorised excuse for the non-filing of certain vouchers by Ins election agent. The orders asked for were granted by tbe learned jndge. At Boston, on Thursday, William Barnsdale was charged with attempting to upset certain trains on the Great Northern Railway, by placing obstructions on the line at Swinesbead. Tbe driver of a goods train said that on the 12th inst. his engine gave a lurch, and: be discovered an iron bolt on the rails.

Six years ago a Wesleyan local preacher and bootmaker of Thetford named Fleet was found drowned in the river and a verdict of accidental death was returned at the inquest. A bottle, which had evidently been embedded in the weeds since July, 1886, has now been found, -and contains the following message : ' ' Whoever finds, please to tell my friends tbafrT am going-to drown myself, as Kfe is not fit for me, and trade is bad. Perhaps they will say I am not right, but I am. James Fjlsst." Millet, the elderly man who was arrested on a charge of having killed bis paramour in a place called the " Lions' Den,"' Paris, has been discharged from custody. It has been ascertained that Millet and the woman were both hopelessly intoxicated when they quarrelled, and that the latter really died from tbe effects of drink. The neiehbonrs declared that tbe parr had a fearful anarreL but whatever injuries were received by the deceased were attributable to tho fact that she fell and cut' herself severely. - A distressing ease of suicide was discovered at Hastings on Thursday. Two boots were found on the beach at St. Leonards by a man, wbo, on looking about, saw the body of a single woman, named Lois Davies, who had been living with her parents at 8, Mercatoria. Pinned to ber clothing was the following note: "Dear Somebody, May Uod forgive me for what I am doing. I am tired of my life, God love you ail, and dear mother. It is no one's fault bnt my own. lots Davies, 8, Mercatoria. Don't grieve for me ; I don't deserve it." At Royton, near Oldham, on Thursday, Joel Butter-worth, a "minder, was brought up under a warrant charged with maliciously damaging and spoilingyarn in process of manufacture . and machinery, at tha Shaw Spinning Compauy's mill. For some months there were continuous breakdowns at the mill, and the cause could not be solved until-, tbe prisoner was detected placing large bobbins amongst the wheels. No reason was given for the extraordinary act, by which great expense was incurred. The accused was committed to the assizes for trial. ' rv : The sequel is announced to a strange experiment lately tried atrerpignan, in the south of France. ; Two or three years ago that little town elected a Socialist Town Council, who were pledged to create public workshops and to make all -other sorts of innovations for the amelioration of the condition of the poor. XTnfortuhateiy tbe Council behaved with more zeal than, prudence, and tbey got tbe finances-of the municipality into a very bad state. They have given place to a new Council of more moderate views, leaving to tbeir individualistic eacces-Bors-th&taskof paying the piper for the tones tbey had called for The result is that the new Council have' had to raise a, loan of 550,000 francs to meet thevdefici6 that had been created.
