MR. R.J. MARKS

Mr. Robert J. Marks, who in the last 50 years attended and reported many thousands of inquests in and around London, has died in a London hospital at the age of 76. In his younger days he also attended the big trials at the Central Criminal Court, and he had traveled all over the country reporting Assize cases for the London Press. He was probably the last of the band of reporters who in 1878 were rushed to Woolwich following the sinking of the pleasure steamer Princess Alice with the loss of hundreds of lives. He reported the inquests which followed the death of one of Jack the Ripper's victims, the first fatal motor-car accident, and the first fatal motor-omnibus and taxicab accidents. When Mme. Rachel, the notorious beauty parlour swindler, was sentenced he was present, and later attended the inquest after she had poisoned herself in gaol. Shortly afterwards he attended the coroner's inquiry into the death of a woman who had shot herself in a cab. It was Mme. Rachel's daughter.
