WHOISTHEfMit? WALMER MYSTERY DEVELOPS. Commercial Traveller's Dramatic Arrest. —~ The mysterious shooting tragedy at Wal- Eier on Saturday, when a strange man entered the residence of Mr. Gould, of Seachlanas House, and shot at him five times with a revolver, has had (as briefly reported last night) a startling sequel. Lato on Sunday night Patrick Edward Trainor, a commercial traveller, was arrested in London outside a tobacconist's shop in Waterloo-road on a charge of being concerned in the outrage, and was conveyed to Deal yesterday. The arrest is described as a smart piece of work. The suspicion of the Dover police fell upon Mr. Trainor, who, they ascer- tained, had two addresses—one in Vauxhall Bridge-road, and the other at 91, Waterloo- road. This last address is the shop of a newsagent and tobacconist, and is directly opposite the suburban approach to Waterloo Station. Mr. Rogers, who manages the business, has been receiving letters for Trainor during two or three years, and knows him as a man of gentlemanly, 2 ehned habits, always well-dressed, and affable. His business as a commercial traveller led him all over the. south coast. One week he would be etaying- in Southampton, and another he might be at Hastings. Mr. Rogen; used often to receive wires asking for letters to be forwarded to such and such a place, and lat week they were sent en to Brighton. From Brighton he went on to Margate, and meanwhile the letters were accumulating for him at 91, Waterloo-road, until by Sunday 'night there were about 40. Mr. Rogers understood that he lived in Tr-dding-ton—where, however, he gave up his house recently—and that he left before the posi, arrived, and made this arrangement so aa to get his letters early. On Sunday, from the early morning, detec- tives watched the shop, while one made in- quiries respecting Trainor of Ur. Rogers. Shortly after half-past ten, when Mr. Rogers vae behind the eountcr, and the detective was standing idly in. the shop, Trainor entered. "Any letters?" he asked, in his usual way. ^r. Itogers handed him the bundle, and Trainor said: "I'll look through these, and bring one or two back for you to keep." Have a Cigar P" I Meianwhile Trainor had observed the stranger in the shop, and nodded Good evening" to hdm. "Have a cigar?" said Trainor to the tobacconist, and, turning to the stranger, added, Perhaps your friend will have one, too." But the stranger did net smoke. Then fr. Trainor gathered up his letters and prepared to leave. Before he passed the door, however, the detective over- took him, and signalled to the others, who closed round Trainor and arrested him. Trainer, whose age is estimated at 50, is married and the father of several children. Mrs. Trainor and family have occupied apartments at Folkestone for some time, and Mr. Trainor visited the seaside town when the business engage- ments permitted. He is alleged to have arrived at Folkestone on Saturdav afternoon, and, after partaking of a meal at one of the hotels, drove i;n a cab to Sandgate Station, wnere he caught the quarter to seven train for London. ilfr. Trainor is very well known in Folkestone. Mr. Gould, the wounded man, is critically ill, an-a yesterday an operation was per- formed on him. It is reported locally tha.t Mr. Gould and his aseailaait had an angry dispute over a woman who was seen in Wwlmèr during the morning. Trainor, in conversation with the police, imdioated that there was some domestic trouble, the mature of which, however, he did not disoloee. An excited crowd awaited the arrival of Mr. Trainor at Deal last night. He arrived dressed in a tweed suit and cloth cap, and was handcuffed to Inspector Hayward, of Deal, who came up to London to fetch him. PRISONER IN COURT _I Self Defence Pleaded. At Deal to-day Patrick Edward Tnainor was charged with attempting to murder Alex- ander Augustus Gould at Ileachlamds, Wal- mer, on Saturday. Prisoner, a. well-dressed man of handsome appearance, with grey hair, showed no sign of emotion as the c'harge was read. Inspector Hayward, of Deal, deposed to receiving prisoner into custody on his arrival from London. Tn reply to the charge, the prisoner sada, "What I did was in self defence." Dr. E. A. White stated that Mr. Gould was not yet in a fit condition to attend the court, and The Magistrate consequently ordered a demand until Tuesday next It was stated that every opportunity would to given prisoner to commuiiica-te with a solicitor in the meantime.
