rFAMIUESERED TERRIBLE BRITISH TRAGEDIES. HOUSEFULS OF CORPSES. Little light could bo I thrown on Saturday morning on the terrible quintuple tragiedy which occurred on Friday night at Harles- den. About 9.60 the police w.ere called to a house in W estgela-roaxi, and there found a tram driver. named Walter Johnson (55), his wife, and tihtree childre.n dead. The wife and the baby had been strangled, the other two children had sitrinig tied round the necks, arid Johnson was hanging by a rope from a gas bracket. The wife bad also a blow on the head. Johnson finished duty on Friday morn- ing at 9.50 and returned his tram to Stono- bfridge Park Depot, afterwards playing a game of billiards in the Athletic Club. Then he went home. Neighbours saw not-h- I ing of ei,thor parents or children durlag Fri- day afternoon. As the evenin.g wore on the occupants of the adjoining flat became euu- picious. Receiving no answer to his knocks, a neighbour foroed open the door, when A TERRIBLE SPECTACLE I met his gaze. The bodies of Mrs. Johnson aind bm, three children were lying either on the floor or across a bed, while the man was hanging froou the gas bracket. They had evidently been dead some hours. The police were informed, and the bodies were removed to the mortuary. The events which led up to the tragedy are shrouded in mystery, but it is thought Johnson sud- denly lost his reason. He was in bright spirits during the morning. Neighbours state the mother and father seemed wraip<ped up in their children. I FATHER AND THREE CHILDREN KILLED. A terrible tragedy was discovered at ion- bridge on Thursday night, a man naaned Stan den, a laundryman, and his three chil- di,eii, aged six, five, and three yeans, being found dead from shot wounds. Standcii had evidently sihot the children as they lay in bed, and then turned the weapon cm him- self. A short time ago he lost his wife, and it is believed that this greatly worried him. He remained in bed a.11 day Friday, stating he was not well.
