TRAGIC SUICIDE IN DUBLIN, In Dublin, on Wednesday, an inquest was held as to the death of Count" Jattka, who shot himself the previous day in Sheriff-Street. Mrs. Inglis, the occu- I pant of the house in which he lodged., and whose daughter he was to marry, deposed to the fact of his coming to the house as a lodger in February last and falling in love with her daughter.. She refused to let her daughter marry him unless be gave a satisfactory account of who he was and made a proper settlement upon her. On Tuesday morning, about 9 o'clock, he sent for her, and told her he was about to draw £ 6000 out of the bank, X1000 for travelling expenses after marriage and £ 5000 to settle on her daughter. He asked her to let her daughter talk with him for an hour, as he had some time to wait before the bank opened. She sent her daughter up to him. Five or six minutes afterwards she heard the shots. The deceased would not tell who he was and where he came from, and the only reason he gave for not doing so was that he was about to marry out of his own rank. Miss Inglis said that when she went up to the deceased on Wednesday morning lie asked her to hand him some documents out of his valise. The first thing which met her hand was a photograph of herself and deceased which he had told her he sent to Berlin. She accused him of tolling untruths, and he then caught hold of her by the shoulders, put his hand into the valise, and, pulling out a revolver, placed the muzzle at her back and fired. She was not wounded, though her dress was torn by the bullet. She rushed out of the room, and then heard another shot. Dr. Chance, the resi- dent medical officer of the hospital, deposed that he found two bullet wounds in deceased's heart, which were evidently self-inflicted. He did not say who or what he was, but said he wished to die quietly. A German named Louis Khors deposed that about eleven months ago he saw the deceased sitting in witness's shop (a small eating house) eating his supper. He told witness that he was the son of a gentleman in Amsterdam, and on the death of his father was entitled to S1200 a year. He also said he was travelling for a silk house in Hamburg. He did not say that he was a count, but that his name was Jottka. The coroner expressed his belief that deceased was an adventurer, who laid a trap for Miss Inglis, and, failing in his intentions, took his own life. The jury returned a verdict to the effect that the deceased committed suicide while he was in a state of temporary insanity.
