ATTEMPTED MURDER AND SUICIDE AT PLAISTOW. Shortly before one o'clock on Tuesday morning the vicinity of North Woolwich-road, Victoria-dook, Plaistow, was thrown into a state of the utmost ex- citement in consequence of a desperate attempt to murder a woman, aged 40 years, by her husband, John Jjovelace, aged 42 years, who afterwards made a de- termined attempt, on his own life. The brief facts that could be hurriedly collected showed that the man was a journeyman shoemaker, was of rather irregular habits, and lived very un- happily with his wife. He had been out drinking in the evening at a neighbouring public-house, and at about half-past eleven o'clock that night he retired to rest with his wife as usual. There were several children in the room, and about the time above named the elder son, about 14 years of age, was suddenly aroused by hearing his mother calling out, "Murder, help!" He got out of bed and saw his father beating his mother on the head, and blood flowing from the wounds. He called for assistance, when several lodgers and neighbours rushed in, and found that he had nearly killed the woman, and on the floor was a large shoemaker's hammer, bearing portions of human hair and blood. The man Love- lace was laying on the floor near the bedstead with a gash in the throat, and on the arms and body were several large incised wounds or stabs, from which blood was flowing. Both man and woman remain in a critical state. No cause is known as yet for the crime.
