HIS STORY DISPROVED
The Man Who Is Accused of Killing Carrotty Nell
He Sold a Knife to a Seaman

London, Feb 24.
A statement by Sadler, the man who is charged with having murdered Carrotty Nell in the Whitechapel district ten days ago, was read at the coroner's inquest in the case Tuesday. In his statement Sadler gives a coherent account of his doings between the time pf his leaving the woman in a lodging house and the time of his arrest.

Denied Selling the Knife

As far as his drunken condition that night permits him to recollect, at the moment of the murder he was going to a hospital to get wounds dressed that he received in a row at the docks. He denied selling a knife on the day following the murder, and said that he had not had such a knife in several years. A seaman identified Sadler as a man who had come to the Sailors' Home on the morning the crime was committed and sold him a big bladed clasp knife, saying he had cut many a model with the knife.
