SUICIDE OF A BARMAN, ENOUGH POISON TO KILL A THOUSAND PEOPLE. In connection with the death of William James Phillips, barman, 9, Richmond-street. Plymouth, Mr. R. B. Johns held an inquiry on Monday evening at the London Mail, Mr. W. J. Carling being the foreman.—The evidence of Jacob Henry Phillips, plumber, brother of deceased, showed that for some months deceased had been depressed. Witness had occasion to meet his brother about eleven a.m. on Sunday, and on asking the servant if she knew whether he had gone out, the girl replied that he was upstairs. Witness went upstairs to find his spectacles some time, later, and on knocking at deceased'^ door got no answer. He then attempted to open the door, but could not. It was eventually forced, and deceased was found lying upon the floor to all appearances dead. On a chest of drawers he found a bottle, half full of cyanide of potas- sium. Some years ago witness and his brother used to go in for photography, and that was the reason of the poison being in the house.—Police-constable Luggar gave evi- dence of receiving the poison—enough ,o kill half the inhabitants of Ply- mouth—whilst Dr. Parsloe attributed death to loisoning through cyanide of potassium. He stated that when he first saw deceased he was dead, lying on the floor, with his feet under- neath a couch. Deceased had not been dead very long—probably about two hours-the body being warm, and there were no marks of. vlo- ence. When he opened the body he imme- diately detected signs of prussic acid, and he found that deceased had taken enough to Ifill quite a thousand peopie. Death, was probably 'nstantaneous.—A verdict of "Suicide whilst temporarily insane" was returned.
