MRS. WATT AND LADY VIOLET. RETRIAL OF THE LIBEL ACTSON. In the Court of King's Bench, on Tuesday, before Mr. Justice Bigham and a jury, the case of Watt v. Watt came on fer re-hearipg. On the original trial of this case a verdict was given for the plaintiff of £5,000, and after being carried to the Court of Appeal and the House of Londe, was eventually sent back for retrial. .:K.C., in opening the case for the plaintiff, stated that she was the wiie of Mr. Hugh Watt, at one time M.P. for the Camlachie Division of Glasgow, and the defendant was Lady Violet Watt, or Beauchamp. He had no doubt the tragic relations of the parties would be fresh in the minds of the jury. He traced the social acquaintance of Mr. and Mrs. Watt and Sir Reginald and Lady Violet Beauchamp until the middle of the year 1900, when Mrs. Watt observed something in Lady Violet's conduct towards her husband which induced her to -refet the matter to Sir Reginald Beauchamp. In the same year, during a visit to Dieppe with her husband, Mrs. Watt discovered a letter in Lady Violet's handwriting, which contained, among other things, the following sentenoe: Do, darling, take care of yourself. I shall never be happy till you are quite away from that creature. I look on her as a real devil and criminal in human form. We must make the most of the future." The learned counsel said the suit was founded upon that parage. Mrs. Julia Watt. dressed in a fur-trimmed hat and cape, gave evidence on her own behalf. She stated that she observed, in tho conduct of Ladv Violet towards her husband, familiarities which led her to say to Lady Violet that she thought that lady would be better employed in looking after her own husband, and leaving witness's alone. She also wrote to Sir Reginald, asking him to take his wife away. She gave evidence as to the finding of the letter at Dieppe, and stated that her husband left her in August, in Paris. After hearing evidenoe, the jury found a ver- dict for plaintiff. Damages, £ 2,000.
