SHOCKING MURDER AND SUICIDE. IN THE ISLE OF MAN. A report of another dreadful tragedy has come to band from the Isle of Man. A young man named Wil iams, who, it is said, was connected with a well-to-do English family, visited the island some time ago, and became attached to a barmaid a the Castle Mona Hotel, Douglas, and to whom he was recently married in Manchester. On Tues- day week they went to the Isle of Man after their wed ling tour, and it was alleged that during the next two days Williams drank heavily, and was very eccentric in his manner. On Thursday he was conveyed home in a state of intoxication and on Thursday night, having partly shaken off the effects of the morning's debauch, he went to the Derby Hotel, and condu ted himself in a violent manner, threatening to shoot the barmaid. In his frenzy he seems to have formed a determination to murder somebody, and Mr. John Gold, the land- lord of the Derby Hotel, was unfortunately marked out as his victim. Williams was armed with a re- volver, and with this weapon he fired at Mr. Gold, the ball penetrating the brain. In the panic which ensued Williams rushed from the hotel, and got away unmolested. Medical aid was procured as promptly as possible for Mr. Gold, but it was wholly unavailing, death resulting in a few mo- ments. After leaving the Derby Hotel Williams seems to have gone straight to his lodgings, situate at a distance of about a quarter of a mile from the hotel, and there he destroyed his own life by shoot- inw himself with the revolver with which he had killed Mr. Gold. An official investigation into all circumstances of the tragedy has been instituted.
