SWANSEA FISHERMAN'S SAD CASE. ATTEMPTED SUICIDE: WORRY AND EXPOSURE. At Tenby on Monday William Ellis, a. Swansea fisherman, was charged with at- tempting to commit suicide by cutting bis throat with a table knife on March 3rd. Defendant had been in the Cottage Hos- pital since the date of the injury. Colonel Fitzgerald suggested that it was a case in which defendant should be de- fended, but Eilis said he did not desire pro- fessional advice; he wished the case settled a.t once. It was stated defendant had been depress- ed owing to proceedings for illegal trawl- ing, for which he was heavily fined. Three or four days prior to making the attempt upon his life Ellis left his lodgings at Tenby, where he was putting in drill as a Naval Reservist, and did not return until the end of the week, during which period he had been without food and exposed to the wea- ther. Dr. Drake expressed the opinion that de- fendant was not at the time responsible for the act; he was perfectly sober at the time, and his mentaJ condition was due to worry, want of food, and exposure. The Bench discharged defendant, at the same time asking his brother-in-law to look after him.
