The Result of Drink

Post by Karen on Tue 26 Jul 2011 - 2:18

THE RESULT OF DRINK.

Yesterday afternoon Mr. George Collier held an inquiry at the Hope tavern, Banner-street, St. Luke's, concerning the death of George Shenston, aged 25, of 224, Goswell-road. The mother of the deceased said the latter had given way to habits of intoxication, and had lived on her for nearly three years. Alma Shenstone stated that at half-past 12 on Sunday morning, the 7th instant, he was standing at the door, according to his custom, to give his dog a run, when his brother, who was very drunk, suddenly came up and challenged him to fight. He seized witness by the throat with both hands, and tore his tie and collar off. Witness closed with him to save himself, and they both fell on to the pavement and rolled into the gutter, deceased undermost. As soon as he could he disengaged himself, when the deceased followed him, challenging him to fight, and then turned his attention to a man in the crowd. During the whole transaction witness never struck him, although deceased hit him on the nose and made it bleed, and renewed his offer to fight when they got upstairs. Mr. Bruce, M.R.C.S., said that when called in he found deceased suffering from drink, and partly delirious. Death ensued on Wednesday. The result of a post-mortem showed an extensive scalp wound, caused by a fall. All the vessels were diseased through excessive drinking, including the coats of the stomach, and death arose from concussion of the brain, caused by a fall, largely accelerated by drink. A verdict was returned accordingly.
