DRINK AND SUICIDE

Watchmaker's Sad End.

SCENE AT THE INQUEST

WITNESS REPROVED FOR LAUGHING.

A JUROR'S SEARCHING QUESTIONS.

Painful disclosures of intemperance and domestic unhappiness were made on Saturday afternoon, when the East Sussex Coroner (Dr. G. Vere Benson, of Lewes, held an inquest at the Leaf Hall, Eastbourne, on the body of Samuel Pollard, a journeyman watchmaker, of 7, Willowfield-road.

Mr Frank Sogno was chosen as foreman of the jury which also included Mr. A. Riddle, Mr. J.E. Wadey, Mr. F. Featherston, Mr. W.R. Whiting, Mr. C. Whiting, Mr. W.R. Mockett, Mr. Cris. H. Moorton, Mr. R. Dyer, Mr. F. Pattenden, Mr. Goddard, Mr. J.W. Hobbs and Mr. L.V. Hobbs. The police were represented by Inspector C. Miles and Constable R. King.

DELIRIUM DURING THE NIGHT.

Jane Rosina Pollard, widow of deceased, was the first witness. She is a middle aged woman with light brown hair and a florid complexion and she wears spectacles (pince-nez).

Replying to the Coroner, she said—My husband, who was sixty years of age, was a watchmaker by trade. I last saw him alive at nine o'clock yesterday morning when he was in the kitchen. He came down brushing the case of a watch, and he had a glass of stout.

Was it his habit to take stout so early?—Unfortunately—lately.

Has he been taking more than he ought lately?—Yes; I think so.

That would go a long way to account for this dreadful act of his. Has he been exceeding to a great extent? Has be been taking spirits, or beer, or stout?—Well, he took a little of each.

Where did he get it?—He brought in spirits, but I hid it away from him. He did not obtain the drink from any of the houses around here as I had stopped it.

I suppose he was subject to occasional breaking out in regard to drink?—Yes. At other times he would be as good as gold.

When did he have the last breaking out?—Quite a month ago, I should think.

Was he obliged to have the doctor then?—I doctored him myself. I did not bring the doctor in more than I could help because it made so much expense.

I daresay you did it as well as any other doctor?—I gave him as much nourishment as I could to stop his craving for drink.

Was he delirious?—Through the night. After taking the stout he went upstairs. I was busy, and when I went up I saw him hanging in front of the door. I had not heard a sound. His face was as black as coal. It gave me a shock, I can assure you. He had driven the nail into the cupboard door.

PREVIOUS ATTEMPTS AT SUICIDE.

Mrs. Pollard, further questioned by the Coroner, said—He (deceased) tried to do it twice before. The second time he woke me up in the night and said, "Jenny, take this cord off my neck. It won't hold me. I shall have to get one. I shall not do it now." That was about two months ago.

How long ago was the first attempt made?—Well, of course I could not tell you. This has all occurred during the past year. We were married in December. The time he was in bed he had a cord with a loose knot. He put it on to strangle himself. (Witness concluded her remarks with a laugh).

The Coroner (gravely)—I don't think it was a laughing matter.

Mrs. Pollard—I thought it was a laughing matter at the time, when he woke me up out of my sleep. If he wanted to do it, why didn't he do it?

The Coroner—It is no laughing matter now he has taken his life. What he tried to do on the other occasions was to commit a very serious crime.

Mrs. Pollard—Yes; it is a serious crime.

Mr J.W. Hobbs—If I were a wife I should not make it a laughing matter at an inquest.

Mr. Sogno (to witness)—Your domestic relations have been unhappy since the time of your marriage? You have not lived happily with your husband?

Mrs. Pollard—On account of his drinking.

Mr. Sogno—He was not a drunkard before you married him. I have known him for thirty years.

Mrs. Pollard—I cannot say anything.

Mr. Cris. Moorton—I am not acquainted with the procedure of coroner's inquests, and, being somewhat nervous, I have written down some questions. I have known Mr. Pollard for some twenty-six or twenty-seven years and I should like to ask these questions. Of course they have not been prompted. They have formed themselves in my mind since I was summoned to serve on the jury. You say he was delirious the night previous to his death?

Mrs. Pollard—No, I did not.

The Coroner—I understood you to say so.

Mrs. Pollard—He had no sleep all the night and I know I was kept awake.

Mr. Moorton—Do you think you did the right thing the next morning in going out to get drink?

Mrs. Pollard—Well, if I had not got it he would have gone out himself. Then he would have stopped out the whole of the day. No one would have brought him home.

Mr. Moorton—Would not it have been the right course to have fetched the doctor?

Mrs. Pollard—I have often fetched the doctor. That is where £9 is owing now.

A JUROR'S QUESTIONS RESENTED.

Mr. Moorton—Since you were married has your conduct been perfectly moral?

The Coroner—I don't think you had better ask that question.

Mr. Moorton—As regards domestic trouble has Mr. Pollard had no cause for suspicion as to your moral conduct?

Mrs. Pollard—I am not obliged to answer you on an untruth! No, I will have no more of it. I am before judge and jury. You mind your business!

Mr. Moorton—It is my business as a juror. Of course if I am out of order the Coroner will rule that I am.

Mrs. Pollard—He told you so just now.

The Coroner (to Mr. Moorton)—I don't think you can ask this witness to make admissions of that sort. She has refused to answer. You must be satisfied with that.

Mr. Moorton—I think there have been frequent quarrels?

Mrs. Pollard—Of course you don't mind your own business.

Mr. Moorton—I am minding my business as a juryman.

Mr. J.W. Hobbs—Quite right.

The Coroner—It is a simple question. Have there been frequent quarrels?

Mrs. Pollard—Yes, on and off.

Mr. Moorton—Will you tell the jury what have been the causes of these quarrels?

Mrs. Pollard—The majority have been due to drink and my jealousy. I will tell you straight.

Mr. Moorton—Was Mr. Pollard a drunkard before his marriage?

Mrs. Pollard—According to what I can hear of it. I shall not say what I don't know. I do not know that he was a moderate drinker.

Mr. Moorton—Recently he has given way to drink a great deal?

Mrs. Pollard—That is not my fault.

Mr. Moorton—Don't you think the trouble has arisen in consequence of Mr. Pollard gaining the knowledge of your going to public-houses with other men?

Mrs. Pollard—Certainly not! No!

"HOW DARE YOU?"

Mr. Moorton—Have you been cautioned?

Mrs. Pollard (angrily)—You dare to say such a thing against my character! How dare you!

Mr. Moorton—I do dare to do my duty as a juryman.

Mrs. Pollard—I say you tell an untruth then. I have myself to speak up for, and you have no right to say such a thing against me.

The Coroner—If you asked what is untrue you can deny it.

Mrs. Pollard—Yes. I do deny it.

The Coroner—I think you will serve your interest best by denying it firmly, and not by losing your temper.

Mr. Moorton—Have you been cautioned in any public-house?

Mrs. Pollard—I suppose I can go in with a relation?

Mr. Moorton—Mrs. Pollard, this was not a relation. Have you been cautioned about going into a public-house with strange men?

Mrs. Pollard—By whom? You have never seen me in a public-house with strange men. What you accuse me of is going to a public-house with my old "guv'nor," to whom I was housekeeper for twelve months at Waldron.

Mr. Moorton—Is that the only occasion?

Mrs. Pollard—Since I have been a married woman. Never mind what I did before. That has nothing to do with you. I suppose that when I am letting rooms I can admit to my house anyone I like.

A QUESTION DISALLOWED.

Mr. Moorton—This is the last and most important question. Before you were married did Mr. Pollard know——

Mr. Riddle—I don't think he can put that at all. I think that is unfair.

The Coroner—I don't see the bearing on our enquiry. Our object is to ascertain how deceased came by his death. In the second place if there is any obvious reason, it is right it should be brought up. I think it is quite enough to have the admission of the wife that the relations were not happy. She says they were due to his drinking and her jealousy of him. There may have been jealousy on both sides. It is quite fair, perhaps, to suggest that he had reasons for jealousy; but I do not think you can ask this witness to give an account of her previous life.

STATEMENTS BY JURORS.

Mr. J.W. Hobbs—I knew Mr. Pollard for twenty years, and never saw him the worse for drink.

Mr. Riddle—I knew him for 23 years. I was a personal friend for ten years, and as far as I knew he was a very abstemious man. For the last twelve months I think that he has probably taken occasionally a little more than has been good for him. He knew him when he was at Walkers's.

MRS. POLLARD FURTHER QUESTIONS.

Mr. Goddard (to witness)—Have you been in the habit of accompanying your husband on his drinking bouts?

Mrs. Pollard—Well, to take care of him.

Mr. Goddard—Oh; to take care of him.

Mrs. Pollard—Yes, to take care of him.

Mr. C. Whiting put a question as to deceased's alleged first attempt to commit suicide.

Mrs. Pollard—I took a nail out, and he knocked another in at the same place. He said, "I am going to hang myself. I don't think the nail would have been strong enough for me."

By the Coroner—When I found deceased hanging yesterday I ran out and called Mr. Sympson.

A WITNESS COMMENDED.

Edward Sympson, a middle-aged man, was next called and said—Yesterday morning the last witness told me that her husband was hanging by a rope and that she wanted me to see to him. She was much agitated and excited. I found deceased at the top of his house in a workshop. He was hanging by the neck, his toes almost touching the ground. I cut him down at once. The nail, I should say, was about 7ft. from the ground. Deceased was a very short man—not above 5ft. He put his head in the noose and dropped down. He was a heavy man for his size.

Mr. Sogno—Probably the fall severed the spinal cord.

Witness—The doctor said that deceased's neck was too strong for that. The bed was only about 1 ft. from the wall. Dr. Bailey and Dr. Bryce Maucalay came to the house. Dr Bailey said that it was impossible that the neck could have been broken because deceased fell such a little way. Death was due to suffocation. The rope was embedded in the neck, and I found it a difficult matter to cut deceased down.

Mr. J.W. Hobbs considered that witness' action was very creditable. It often happened that the first person called in went away to get assistance instead of cutting the body down at once.

In reply to a juror, witness said that he got to the house at about ten minutes past ten.

The Coroner remarked that deceased must have been in a condition bordering on delirium tremens, and it was a great pity that the witness did not call in a doctor.

Mr. Goddard—Especially in view of previous attempts.

Mr. Sympson—I should mention that Mr. Paul (a gardener) was with me. As soon as I got the body down I sent for a doctor.

Mr. J.W. Hobbs—I saw deceased the night before. I simply met him in the street.

HER THIRD HUSBAND.

Mr. Sogno—Was he your third husband, Mrs. Pollard?

Mrs. Pollard—Yest.

Mr. C. Whiting—Was he in financial difficulties?

Mrs. Pollard—Yes; decidedly.

The Coroner—He was in work?

Mrs. Pollard—He had not done any for a week.

The Coroner—What was the reason of that?

Mrs Pollard—It was because he had been having a little too much.

VERDICT.

The jury returned a verdict to the effect that deceased committed suicide whilst in a state of temporary insanity.

SCENE AT A FUNERAL.

The funeral of a suicide named Samuel Pollard, at Eastbourne yesterday, was characterised by disgraceful scenes. Great feeling existed against the widow, who came in for loud hisses and booing, both upon leaving the house and on returning. The police kept the crowd back when Mrs. Pollard left the house to enter a carriage, but the booing continued until the hearse had left the road. At the graveside people made obnoxious remarks to Mrs. Pollard, and followed her to the carriage. One woman gathered a handful of gravel and shingle and threw at the widow. Further disturbance took place upon returning home, and the police had to make a passage way for the woman through the crowd, which continued to hoot. Among the things thrown at her was a bag of flour.

PELTED AT A FUNERAL.


GRAVEL AND FLOUR HURLED AT SUICIDE'S WIDOW.

The funeral of a suicide named Samuel Pollard, at Eastbourne yesterday, was characterised by disgraceful scenes. Great feeling existed against the widow, who came in for loud hisses and booing, both upon leaving the house and on returning.

The police kept the crowd back when Mrs. Pollard left the house to enter a carriage, but the booing continued until the hearse had left the road. A portion of the crowd followed on foot to Ocklynge Cemetery, and others filled a motor-'bus going in that direction. On passing the cortege the occupants of the motor-'bus again hooted loudly. At the graveside people made obnoxious remarks to Mrs. Pollard, and followed her to the carriage. One woman gathered a handful of gravel and shingle and threw at the widow.

Further disturbance took place upon returning home, and the police had to make a passage way for the woman through the crowd, which continued to hoot. Among the things thrown at her was a bag of flour. Police were put on special duty outside the house all the evening, and kept moving the crowd away.

SERIOUS CHARGES.—On Saturday, Edwin Pollard, 15 years of age, apprentice to Mr. Adams, jeweller, Half Moon-street, was charged before Mr. E. Benthall, with stealing watches, chains, brooches, and other valuable articles, the property of his master. The prisoner was remanded. The greater portion of the stolen property has been recovered, but one watch and chain, Pollard says, he was robbed of in Bristol.—On Tuesday, before the same magistrate, Samuel Webb, aged 16, apprentice to Mr. Hayward, linendraper, Cheap-street, was charged with having received some of the articles purloined by Pollard, knowing them to have been stolen. He was also remanded, his father-in-law, a respectable dairyman at Haselbury, becoming bail. Webb is said by his associate, Pollard, to have supplied him with collars and shirt fronts, &c., from his mater's shop; and three or four other lads, whose names have not yet transpired, are "mixed up" in the matter.
