JACK THE RIPPER
The Inquest on Deeming's Murdered Wife Makes Him Laugh.

Melbourne, April 5.
The inquest upon the body of Deeming's murdered wife began today. The body was identified and Deeming was identified as the husband and as the man who under the name of Droin rented the house in which the body was found. A witness named Hirschfield, who was on the steamer with Deeming between Perth and Melbourne, told of remarks by Deeming indicating his guilt.

Deeming affected a careless air during the inquest and even laughed aloud at times. It transpired that when Deeming was arrested in the gold fields he was arranging to marry Miss Rounseville of Bathurst, who was soon to join him. He had taken a house and bought a barrel of cement with which he had laid the floor of the main room. When arrested he was reading a newspaper containing a brief account of the discovery of Miss Mather's body at Windsor when a constable suddenly entered and, without the least warning, arrested him on the charge of murder. For the moment Deeming was dumbfounded, but he quickly recovered his self-possession and pointing to the paragraph asked the constable if that was the murder of which he was accused, adding: "I think I know the party who was murdered. She was a good little thing and I cannot believe that any one would hurt her."
