After viewing the body the inquest was adjourned to 1pm on Wednesday, the foreman having intimated that the jury wished to have a post mortem held. It had been rumored that the deceased died from poison.
Deposed:
Charles FRY : Blacksmith, Danevirke in the employment of Mr ELMBRANCH. The deceased lived in a house, the property of his employer. A man had come looking for the deceased and the witness tried the doors and found them locked and the keys inside. He got a ladder and looked through the window. He saw the deceased lying dead inside on a box. He got down and told Mr GRONNEBAK that the woman was dead, so he went for the constable. The constable came and they took the latch off the back door. The body was kneeling on a box and the face was black and fly blown. The constable and him carried the body into the front room. He thought he had seen the deceased alive about a fortnight ago.
Mary HENDERSON : Resided with her father at Danevirke and that the deceased worked for her father, as a cook. She had last seen the deceased on Saturday 10th in the deceased's kitchen. Deceased had told her she was ill and if someone did not come to see her she woud die. The witness had gone home and told her mother and Mrs LUKE what the deceased had said. When witness last saw the deceased she was lying on a box inside the kitchen door on her side. When the deceased lived at her fathers house she sometimes took schnapps.

Death of Roderick MATHIESON
Roderick MATHIESON, Head Shepherd at MOORE's Station, Pohui is thought to have been murdered. Mr PREECE, Coroner held the inquest, Inspector KELLY the enquiry and Captain FOSTER took the depositions.
The jury returned a verdict to the ffect that the deceased met his death through being wounded with a sharp instrument, but who inflicted the wound , there is no evidence to show.
The stationhands, ANDERSON & LOPDELL, had thought he had met his death by a kick of a horse and nobody thought otherwise until Constable LEITCH arrived. The constable saw a long deep wound over the right ear which showed the wound must have been inflicted by means of a sharp instrument and this was borne out by Dr CARO's evidence.
AS CHADWICK has disappeared suspicion fell on him. Constables LEITCH, GANTLEY and Detective GRACE are now out scouring the bush for him
CHADWICK is from 45 - 50 years. Married to a maori woman by whom he has a number of children and his family live in a house three miles from the station. We believe that CHADWICK had been living and working in the area of Pohui for the last 15 - 20 years
