I am a widow, of 28, Church Street, Rotherhithe—I was present at St. Andrew's Church, Holborn, on 4th March, 1872, when my daughter was married to the prisoner—the banns had been previously published—this is the certificate of the marriage (
<hi rend="italic">read</hi>)—they lived together about three months afterwards; there was then a separation—since then I have seen the prisoner, but not spoken to him.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined</hi>. The prisoner was not living at my house before his marriage—he was 16 years of age, but he deceived me as to that; he told me he was 20—he never slept at my house before his marriage—I don't know where he lived—I knew where his father lived—he was not living there—my daughter was pregnant before her marriage—I gave him money to keep him after his marriage, not before—I don't know that he was married without his father's consent—he did not warn me against the marriage; he did not say his son was under age, he said he was very young—he came to me with the Relieving Officer one Saturday, a week or two before the marriage, and he said whatever might occur he would not be answerable—I was not keeping the prisoner at that time—I went with him and my daughter to put up the banns, I forget whether I paid for it—my daughter was confined about six weeks after her marriage—after living with the prisoner three months she went away and lived with another man, and has been living with him ever since, and had children by him—she is not the prosecutrix—she is about 12 months older than the prisoner.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">Re-examined</hi>. She left him because he did not use her right; he did not keep her, and I found he was very young.</p>

<p>him on 7th May, 1876, at St. James's Church, Bethnal Green—this is the certificate (
<hi rend="italic">read</hi>)—he told me that he was a married man, but that his wife was dead, and also two children, and that he had been a widower two years—I first heard a rumour of his wife being alive about 12 months after our marriage, and I said to him "William, have you got another wife alive?"—he said "No, my wife is dead; if you were to travel all round London you would not find another wife alive belonging to me"—I afterwards found out where his wife was, and in consequence of what she told me he was given into custody.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined</hi>. I turned him out of the house about four months ago, because he did not maintain me or his child—I was not told by Wilson, a cabman, before I married him that he was a married man, or I would not have had him—I did not say if the first wife did not mind I did not care—his brother did not tell me he was married—I was a servant at the Express coffee-house before my marriage—I have drank with the prisoner since those proceedings, but not at his expense; he ran after me and spoke to me when he was out on bail—I did not say I would go back and live with him.</p>

I am the prisoner's cousin, and live at 78, Oxford Terrace—on this Wednesday morning I met him between 10 and 11 a.m.—he was very excited relating to a telegram which he had in his hand—I did not read it—he presumed that it was from a man of whom he felt very jealous and said that he intended to take two or three persons' advice—I advised him not to do anything rash—he came to my house that evening still more excited—he produced a knife and said that he had the instrument he meant to deal with—I took it away from him, and on my giving him a sovereign he left and promised me not to go near his wife, but to go and get work.</p>

<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined</hi>. You made a great many statements—I told you in the morning that you were either half drunk or mad, and you threw your hat on the pavement and kicked it—you are peculiar tempered and very violent if anything offends you.</p>

<hi rend="italic">The Prisoner's Statement before the Magistrate</hi>. "What my wife has said is untrue." She did it herself. I said, 'I'll go to Mr. Rayner's and inquire where you've been to all night,' as she told me on the previous day, when she came home in the afternoon, that she was going to take two young ladies to the Kensington Museum and then go to Hengler's in the evening. I helped dress her, put on a clean chemise. She washed herself right down to the bottom, and I rubbed her back per
<lb/>fectly dry. She said, 'I can never get it done like that unless you're at home.' I said, 'Anything else can I do for you.' She said, 'I wish you would go and fetch a drop of beer.' She gave me some money to get some porter. I fetched the porter and had half a pint myself. I</p>

<p>went with her as far as the Royal Oak, and she asked me whether I would go in, and I declined and said I could not afford it. I said, 'Very well, what time shall you be home.' She said, 'Nine o'clock to a minute.' She didn't come home at nine, and I was anxiously waiting up all night for her. I laid down on the bed about five o'clock, and got up about seven and cut off a piece of bread and meat and went out with the knife eating it. That's how I came with the knife all day. When I came home at night she was at home. When I took the knife from my pocket she tried to take it from me, and said she did cut herself so that she could give me in charge, as she had heard I had been inquiring where she had been. So she did cut herself, and then called Mrs. Johns.</p>

<p>when I saw a cab come from Effingham Street—it was coming fast, I could not tell the rate—the horse seemed to go at a very furious rate—as soon as I saw it I halloed out to my father—before I had time to get out of the road the horse kicked me in the leg and I fell backward in the road, and the wheel went over my stomach—after the cab went over me I turned and saw my father 3 or 4 yards away from me—I halloed "Murder"—some people came and lifted me up and put me on a doorstep—there was another cab behind the one that ran over me—I spoke to that cabman; he did not drive after the other, he went in the other direction—I did not hear any one call out before I was knocked down—the horse was about a yard from me when I first saw it; the driver could see us perfectly well, there was a very good light from the public-house—we were taken to the hospital—I left the hospital that evening, I left my father there, he was insensible; he died on the 29th, Tuesday—I did not see the driver's face, only his back—the prisoner appears to be about the size of the man.</p>

I live at 5, Box Street, Bow Common, and am a ship's caulker—on Wednesday, 6th February, I was at the Moor's Arms, Bow Common, with Henry Dean—the prisoner was there—there was some quarrelling about donkey racing—the prisoner said to Dean "I have got you set," and I saw him shove a sharp instrument into him in the lower part of the stomach and run out at the door—Dean said "Oh, he has stabbed me"—I took hold of him and took him to the doctor's, and after
<lb/>wards to the London Hospital—I afterwards saw him dead.</p>

<lb/>nite symptoms of any special poison—I was told it had had belladonna liniment given to it, and upon that I sent it to the hospital—the pupils were a little dilated, but nothing more than you ordinarily see in children—dilatation of the pupils is a symptom of belladonna—1 did not see the child at the hospital, I have seen it once or twice since—this bottle was shown to me by Marriott, it contained about 20 or 30 drops of belladonna liniment; I did not analyse it—belladonna is calculated to endanger life, it would depend upon the quantity—I have no doubt the child had very little, not sufficient to poison it; if it had swallowed a poisonous dose there would have been more decided symptoms—the child is only 3 years old—I can't say that it would not have developed symptoms of poison had not the emetic been given immediately, but from the subsequent history I cannot think that it had sufficient to poison it—I afterwards went to the station to see the prisoner—he was in a state of great misery, crying, and very tremulous, and nearly on the verge of
<hi rend="italic">delirium tremens</hi>; he had been drinking a good deal—he said "I gave the child this liniment"—I asked him if he knew it was poison—he said "Yes, it was belladonna," and he assigned as a reason for giving it that the child's mother was very ill in the hospital, and that he was out of work and not able to look after the children—he said he was particularly fond of this child, more so than the other; that he thought the best thing was to put it out of this world's misery, and as he had not the heart to strike it he thought it was most</p>

On 18th February I saw the prisoners with a third man in Brick Lane, about eighty yards from Osborne Street—Donovan had half a sheep's head in his hand eating it, it was cooked—they went towards Osborne Street, and in about ten minutes I heard a scream and saw the prosecutrix lying on the pavement—she complained to me and I saw two persons running away, but did not pursue them at that time—about five or eight minutes afterwards I took Donovan about ten yards from where the assault took place—he said "It was not me, sir, I had no half sheep's head"—I am quite sure he is the person who had the sheep's head—I took him to the station.</p>

On 18th February I saw the prisoners and a third man going up Brick Lane towards Osborne Street, but did not notice that either of them was carrying anything—shortly afterwards I saw Donovan in Inhof's custody—on the 20th I saw Callaghan in a public house and told him I should take him on suspicion of being concerned with a man in custody and a man not in custody in assaulting and robbing a woman on the 18th; he made no reply—I took him to the station, placed him with other men, and the prosecutrix picked him out.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">Donovan's Defence</hi>. I was with four men, and the prosecutrix asked me for a bit of my sheep's head. I refused, and she called me a greedy little *. I said that if she said that again I would smack her face. Callaghan told her to mind her own business. She began screaming and</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="187803110028"/>
<p>a constable came up, and she gave me in charge for kicking her and knock
<lb/>ing her down, but nothing was said about any shilling. Is it likely that if I stole a shilling from a prostitute I should come back to the spot? She never mentioned the shilling till afterwards. She has given a wrong name; she cohabits with a man and goes out to keep him. The detective can speak for me if he likes.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">Callaghan's Defence</hi>. We came out of the public-house and she was going in with three men. She said to Donovan "Give me a bit of that sheep's head." He told her to go and buy one. She called him a s—, and he said that he would punch her in the jaw. When we got down Osborne Street we heard her screaming. When the constable asked her if she had lost anything she said "No;" he said "Will you charge him with kicking you?" she said "Yes." The man she cohabits with had a

I am a jeweller, in partnership with Mr. Lawson at 44, St. Paul's Churchyard—the prisoner was our traveller—last November he was entrusted with jewellery to go round to customers and to dispose of it—we supplied him with this black bag to place it in—we kept a record of the jewellery he took away every morning, and he had to give us an account of what he sold or left on approbation, and it would be charged against the customer and written on his account—on 12th November a new stock book was being prepared at our premises at Hatton Garden, where Mr. Lawson was—I saw the prisoner that morning at St. Paul's Churchyard, and said "I would rather you did not take your out this morning, because we are going to make a new stock book"</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="187803110032"/>
<p>—he said "I have an appointment with Mr. Harnett of Edgware Road and I will be back by 11.30"—he mentioned that more than once and ultimately left the bag—he returned by 4.45 without the bag and rather excited—I think he was the worse for liquor—he said that he had had his bag taken out of the train, at King's Cross railway station by three men. who passed hurriedly by him, who were in the same compartment with him, that his bag was by his side, and that he found something touch him, missed his bag, jumped out of the carriage, called the guard and said he had been robbed of a bag worth 1,500
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>., and asked him to stop the train, but he would not do so, and that he then went to Bagnigge Wells police-station and gave information, and from there came to me—I sent him with my partner's son in a cab to Scotland Yard, and they re
<lb/>turned for a full list of the property, which was made out by Mr. Lawson, jun., and the clerk—Mr. Slade afterwards made a communication to me and I went to his place at Paul's Wharf and saw the bag; it was open and the empty jewellery cases were in it—when the prisoner came to me that evening he showed me the centre of a diamond bracelet with which he had been entrusted, and said "I have found this in my pocket"—this (
<hi rend="italic">produced</hi>) is the case of that bracelet, I found it in the bag at Mr. Slade's—I had looked out an order for the prisoner for some shirt studs for Dr. S. Bridges and handed them to the prisoner with some links and collar studs, and also a pair of earrings for Dr. Bridges' brother—on 14th August the prisoner was entrusted with a single stone diamond ring, No. 1082, value about 12
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>.—I have asked him about that ring since the loss of the bag, and he said that he had never had it—on 9th October he had a diamond gipsy ring, No. 596, value 28
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>.—I have asked him about that, and he said that it was in the bag—he never suggested that he had been robbed of it by a woman—on 16th August he had a silver hunting watch—I asked him for it on several occasions—he said that it was with Mr. Norbury, who was getting up a watch club, he being employed at Ryland's in Wood Street—on 8th December instructions were given to take him in custody and he was taken—the case was investigated from time to time until 9th January, when he was discharged—we had had no information from Mr. Brown then as to where certain pawn tickets were—I have inspected the goods referred to in these six pawn tickets which Mr. Brown snowed me, and find they relate to some diamond earrings, a diamond and turquoise brooch, a pair of gold earrings, and a pair of diamond and turquoise ear tops, which had been entrusted to the prisoner for sale and which should have been in the bag—I had given Mr. Brown certain instructions previously.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined</hi>. The prisoner was in my employ about 6 months, I had a good character with him—he used to carry a stock book in his pocket—somebody in the firm gave him the bag every morning and it was kept in the iron safe at night—we had no other traveller at that house—on one occasion the goods were wrapped in paper and the bag was taken by somebody else—the firm checked his book with the general stock book—he would leave 200
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>. or 300
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>. worth of goods with a customer, and generally for 10 days—I do not know that a warrant is out against Mr. Bridges—the prisoner was charged with a ring and wrote to say that he knew nothing about it—this centre out of a bracelet forms a pendant and can be used separately, he gave me that after he came from Scotland Yard—I believe he drove up to our place in a cab—he was first charged before</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="187803110033"/>
<p>a Magistrate about a fortnight afterwards—there were three or four remands and the Magistrate thought there was not sufficient case—I offered 100

<hi rend="italic">s</hi>. a week—on 12th November at a few minutes to 5 o'clock he came to the warehouse a good deal excited and made a statement, and I accompanied him to Scotland Yard in a cab—we were asked for a complete list of the things stolen and returned to St. Paul's Churchyard, where I called the articles out of the book and he told me whether they were in the bag or not—I called out the various articles mentioned on these pawn tickets, and he said that they were in the bag—I also called out the bracelet, of which he showed me the centre, and he said that it was in the bag—I called out ring No. 1082, he said that he had never had it; but I had given it to him myself and entered it at the time—it was never returned to me—I called out ring 596, and he said that it was in the bag.—he never complained to me that it had been stolen from him by a woman at Liverpool Street station—I called out a silver watch, and he said that Mr. Norbury had it—after the list was made out he said that if he took it to Bow Lane they would be able to communicate with Scotland Yard quicker than we could, that they would telegraph, and he went to Bow Lane for that purpose; he was away about 25 minutes and we left at a few minutes to 7 o'clock to go to Scotland Yard.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined</hi>. He got a good deal excited that night—he told me in the cab that while showing the bracelet to Mr. Barrett it came un
<lb/>fastened, and he put it in his pocket—he asserted frequently that I had not given him one ring, and he had done so before—there had been a dispute about it—I know of things being taken out which were not entered in the stock book in which we kept the account with him—I believe it was an unlocked bag—it was in one instance my fault that he took out articles which were not entered—he was not credited with them though he was debited—that was a pair of ear-rings—there are 39 or 40 articles in this list which we made out—I know of his leaving goods on approba
<lb/>tion with people—that is part of our trade—their names would only some to my knowledge from what he told us—I have no doubt that he returned a 40
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>. ring to the firm a week after the robbery, which had been out on approbation; I was not present, but it is marked in the stock-book—that was a little over three weeks before he was given in custody—he remained in our employ a week or 10 days.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">Re-examined</hi>. The ring he returned was one which had been out on the books to Mr. Cooper—during the five months he was in our employ I never took anything out of his bag and sold it to a customer—Mr. Goddard and Mr. Hitchin could—this entry is my writing—he had ring 1082 and two others.</p>

<p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined</hi>.
