HAZED LOVER'S DEED
Horrible Double Tragedy in Southeast Washington. CAUSED BY JEALOUSY GEORGE LONG ILLS SWEET HEART WITH A RAZOR. then Cuts His Own Throat and Dies by Her Side-Inquest Unnecessary. A horrible double tragedy was enacted at the home of Frederick Woodsum. 1106 4th street southeast, last n'ght, shortly before 7 o'clock. and claimed the attention of the police and coroner. George M. Long. a Spanish war veteran, committed the double crime. He first cut the throat of Miss Nora Adams and then ended his own life with the razor he had used on his sweetheart. It is said Miss Adams had promised to be come his wife next month. Miss Adams was twenty-three years old and her parents live at Malcolm. Charles county. Md. Long was ten years older than Miss Adams. He was a native of Quebec. and until a few days ago had been employed as a laborer in the navy yard. This position he surrendered last week in order to accept a better situation at the fil tration plant. A seven-year-old son of the Woodsums was the only person in the house besides those who figured in the trag edy at the time the murder was committed. He was so badly frightened that he is un able to give an Intelligent account of what really occurred. From what the police were able to learn of the couple and the crime they are satis fled that the motive was jealousy. The couple boarded with the Woodsums. and it was in their home that Miss Adams met and fell in love with the Canadian. She had come here from her country home only a few months ago and had obtained em ployment at the jewelry counter at the Palais Royal. Recently she went home to spend a short vacation, and while she was there Long corresponded with her. She had told the people at home of her intended marriage, for a letter found among the dead man's effects showed that Miss Adams' sister was aware of the relations which existed between the two. When about the house the couple were together most of the time, and the man showed signs of jealousy when Miss Adams had friends call to see her. They had had lovers' quarrels, the police were told, but their disagreements had never passed be yond that stage: No threatening language had ever been heard and there was nothing in Lang's conduct to give their friends an idea that such a deed as that committeti yesterday was contemplated. Regarded as Member of Family. Miss Adams and Mr. Long. while board ers in the Woodsum home, were more liKe members of the family than boarders, and made themselves perfectly at home at all times. Miss Adams was so familiar in the family that she sometimes relieved Mrs. Woodsum of work about the house. Yes terday she consented to wash the dishes after the evening meal, in order that Mrs. Woodsum might be able to go to her lodge meeting early. About the time Mrs. Woodsum went out of the house to attend the lodge meeting her husband went to a neighboring store to purchase smoking material. This left the couple and the young son of the Wood sums to take care of the house. Miss Adams was in the kitchen washing the dishes when the deadly attack was made upon her by her jealous lover. What words, if any, passed between them will never be known. The frightened boy s3ys he heard nothing said before Long walked up from behind the young woman, grabbed her hands and began using the razor. WIth her head severed almost from her body she ran from the house to the shed in the rear and fell dead. Long pursued her to the shed and just what happened there is not known. It is thought that he renewed his attack upon the woman before he cut his own throat and wrists. The self-inflicted wounds eaused his death before anything could be done for him. The position of his body showed that he was anxious to be with her in death for he had put his head under her arm and rested it upon her chest. It was in this position that he died. Young Woodsum ran from the house when he realized the seriousness of the affair and shouted for assistance. He mgt his father, who was returning from the cigar store, and the latter hurried to his home to make an investigation and have the police take charge of the case. Policemen came in a short time and so did hundreds of curious people from the neighborhood in which the crime had been committed. It was as much as the police could do to keep the crowd from taking possession of the pretn l'ees. When a physician stated that Long and his victim were dead the police remain. ed on guard and did not permit the bodies to be touched until the arrival of Acting 'oroner Glazebrook. Detectives Burrows and Trumbo had ar rived from police headquarters in the mean time andt questioned witnesses regarding the coruple. The acting coroner was shown the razor that had been found behind the doot by Detective Trumbo. He questioned the bo)y and others and concluded that it 'would be unnecessary to hold an inquest. In the case of the young woman the certificate sets . u briefly the nature of her wounds and - gives the addItional information that she was murdered. The certificate in Long's ' case shows that he committed suicide. Prompted by Jealousy. - There seems to be no question that jeal ousy prompted the crime. Last week. wher he resigned his position in the navy yard and accepted another one at the filtratior plant he notified Mr. Woodsum that he would move from the latter's house. He had made arrangements to board wi G.eorge Brown. at 7th and R streets, he stated, and Miss Adama said he tried t< persuade her to go t'o the 7th street house to board. It is believed that Long made the move for the purpose of getting Misa Adams out of the southeast section of the city, where she would probably not see s< much of the man of whom he was jealous Tis man, it is stated, is a street car con* ductor. who formerly lived in the neighbor, hood of Malcolm. He was merely a friend of the Adams family. it Is said, and had given the Canadian no cause to become jeal ouls. He hsd visited Miss Adams severa time., and she had gone out with him for a stroll. Papers found in Long's room show tha he served in the Philippines with the 7t Infantry and was discharged September 17 11102. on acAnt of heart trouble. He waa in the service for about eighteen months A fter receiving his discharge he came hern and succeeded in getting through a clain for a pension of 812 a month. Then he re nmalned here and 'obtained the ponsltion in th. navy yard. Disposing of the Bodies. A fter the coroner hail disposed of th case yesterday the bodies were remove to the morgue. Mrs. Clarke. an aunt o Miss Adams. had the latter's body remove to the undertaking establishment o Thomas R. Nalley. 12S0 11th street south enst, this morning. Mr. Nailey sent a mes sage to the father of the young womari telling him of her death, and he is expectei here this afternoon. The body of MIs Adams will probably he taken to Charle county tomorrow for interment. An effort is being made to locate relative of Long. U'nless his body is claimed by rel atives it will probably he interred at Ar ington. Frightened Team Buns Away. Two horses attached to a carriage be longing to Ernest Burgdorf and driven b: John Hall. colored, of ildB Kingman place became frightened and ran away at ths corner of 13th street and Massachuaett avenue northwest about 10 o'clock las night. The frensied animaals collided wit] a tree, the force being ao great that one o the horses was killed instantly. Mrs. Hall who was in the vehicle with her husband jumped, and was hurt about the head. He injury was dressed at the Emaergencoy Ho. ital. CAMPAIGN COMMITTEE TAGGART NA2 DNOCBATIC EXECUTIVE OFICEBS. Tickets Nominated by State Conven tions Yesterday-Bryan to Support Parker and Davis.
