William Shaw was seen acting in a strange manner at about 6.30am on the Thursday by a man that he lodged with in the street.

A doctor was later called and William Shaw was taken to the infirmary.

When William Shaw had arrived at the millwrights' shop where he worked he was seen to have a bruised eye and to have dust and dirt on his overcoat. He denied that he had fallen.

He was also seen to be adding brass shavings in with his tobacco and put it in his pipe and smoking it.

An open verdict was returned.
