|HBH 1890 July 21 Power John-ELLIS- and
Captain PREECE, Coroner, held an inquest on Saturday afternoon at the Ferry Hotel, Western Spit, on the body of John POWER, whose drowning on Friday night was reported in Saturday's issue.
Mr James NORTHE-foreman of the jury and constable HARVEY conducted the inquiry.
From the evidence it appeared that the deceased had been a shepherd at Messrs DOLBEL Bros, station near PETANE, and that he had been drinking rather freely the last few days, but was very quiet and not all a man who would be likely to commit suicide. He called at the FERRY Hotel on Friday afternoon and had a glass of beer,.....more.and it was supposed that in the dark he tumbled into the water.....more..jury returned a verdict of "Found Drowned." Police have received information to the effect that a lad named ELLIS, about 12 years of age, was killed at WAINUI on Saturday by the falling of a tree.
The race at the rink on Saturday night was a keenly contested one, and resulted in such a close finish between PARKINS and HERON that Mr FOLEY decided to give each a silver medal.

THE POVERTY BAY MURDER
At the R.M. Court this morning William BLACK was charged with the murder of Robert STREETER about March last. Mr A.M. NOLAN appeared for the Crown and Mr Lincoln REES for the accused.
Dr INNES gave evidence as to the identification of the body and finding gunshot wounds in the head and lead in the brain
Elizabeth STREETER, wife of the deceased deposed that the prisoner had been staying at her house the past twelve months. STREETER and BLACK took a fencing contract in February last and they left town. Since then she had received letters every week from BLACK which had been burned after reading. The prisoner came back to town and lodged at her house.
At the end of March BLACK said that STREETER had left to come to town a fortnight before. That was the only conversation she had ever had with BLACK about her husband.. When the police interviewed her she sent immediately for BLACK, who came to town, and gave her a horse in payment for his board in case he should be arrested.
BLACK gave her a wedding ring on July 9th. She suggested he should give her the ring as it was an old one, won out. Prior to STREETER's disappearance the letters from BLACK came addressed to Mrs WILLS. Afterwards he addressed her as Mrs STREETER. She had received various sums of money from BLACK for board.
Mrs PRICE came to her place when BLACK was present and said "What about Bob?" meaning (STREETER). "What would he say if he came in now?" BLACK replied "No fear of his coming." STREETER had left her twice before, 12 or 16 years since, for short periods, and her idea was that he would not bother about BLACK much.
Charles PRICE, a son of Mr s STREETER's first husband, was the next witness and was frequently cautioned for withholding evidence......more
Mary PRICE deposed........more
The body of John HAWKINS, a steady lad employed for some time past in Mr CRERAR's shop, and who has been confined to bed with "La Grippe" for some days, was yesterday washed up by the surf near the ALBION Hotel.
Deceased was being attended to by Dr. MOORE at the house of Mr FULLER, where he boarded, and was apparently progressing favourably towards recovery. Mrs FULLER left his bedside at 1 o'clock yesterday morning, after watching him for several hours, and on returning about 7 o'clock found that he had disappeared. It transpired that some little boys named TRONSON saw deceased enter the surf, which was fairly heavy, early yesterday morning. He was at once caught up and was probably killed instantly by being thrown violently against the shingle. A watch was kept on the beach all day, and his body was recovered at 3 p.m. and taken to the FULLER residence.
Deceased was an orphan, and was a very trustworthy youth. It is supposed
that he became delirious, as his disorder had turned to congestion of
the lungs, and that in his frenzy he had rushed into the surf. When found
the only clothing on the body was a pair of trousers.

About fifty members were enrolled.
A very successful concert was held in St Patrick's Hall, Hastings, and last Friday evening in aid of the building fund of the infant school, which is now being built, and which will accommodate about fifty scholars. The hall was crowded. Father PRATIER took the chair and chief items on the programmes were songs and a well written comedy, which the management, profiting by past experience, wisely substituted for the "historical tragedies in seven acts," produced on former occasions.
The piece was "My Aunt's Heiress," and being within the powers of the pupils, it was very creditably performed by Misses DANVERS, MADDISON, HEWITSON, SHANLEY, HASTINGS, Mc NAMARA, LIVESEY, KINGSWELL, LILLEY, and WINTON.
In the vocal department I may bracket Miss ALDRIDGE and Miss WINTON as singing their respective songs with distinction which older singers might imitate with advantage.
R, SHANLEY, and N. CAULTON, on two pianos, had a very good effect.
Miss FLYNN did good service in accompaniments for the songs. Taken as
a whole, the entertainment reflected great credit on the good sisters
who taught the children. After the concert Father SMYTHE, in a brief address
thanked the audience for their attendance, paid a graceful tribute to
the sisters who exertions had so promoted the efficiency of the school,
and announced the welcome news that a short holiday was granted to the

HOWELL-WOODFIELD-On July 16th by the Rev S DOUGLAS,
Wanganui papers please copy.
Deceased was an old settler of the WAIROA, having arrived here in 1869, when he commenced business as a saddler.
About 12 years ago he married the widow of the late John GRAY, blacksmith of this place, by whom he received a considerable accession to his means. Subsequently he took up the business of bookseller and General storekeeper, which he carried on successfully. He also acquired a good deal of landed property, and his life was insured for a considerable amount, so the widow and family (three children of PARKER, and two by her former husband) are well provided for.
Messrs W MOLONEY and John BLACK are the executors under the will.
The late Mr PARKER took an active interest in local affairs, having been chairman of the WAIROA Harbor Board and of the CLYDE Town Board, member of the County council, hospital committee, And other local institutions.
The funeral took place yesterday afternoon, and was very largely attended, both by townspeople and country settlers.
The Foresters, which deceased was a member of, appeared in regalia and carried the coffin up the hill from the gate of the cemetery to the grave. Mr W MOLONEY read the burial service of the Roman Catholic Church to which the deceased belonged, and Mr G B FLINT read that of the Foresters.
Deceased who was a nephew of Mr Thomas MORRISON, formerly one of the
proprietors of the HERALD, was much respected as a straightforward and
honourable man of business, and his demise at the early age of 38 years
is much regretted.

Obituary and inquest details
I observe by last Saturday's Herald that my telegram to you with reference to the lamentable sudden death of Mr John GLENDINNING, of Waihua, a well known settler of this district, was published in a form different from the message wire to you. The words wrongly put before the name of deceased were liable to be construed as wanting in due respect to the late John Glendinning, he being such a well-known settler and known all over Hawke's Bay.
The inquest was held on Saturday last at deceased's residence, Waihua, at 2 p.m. before Mr POWDRELL, J.P., acting coroner, and a jury of six, of whom Mr Neil WALKER was foreman, Laura Sarah GLENDINNING, widow of deceased, gave evidence to the effect that after deceased had done some work he returned to the house, went into the bedroom, complained of weight about the region of the heart, vomited frequently, subsequently went into convulsions, and died in about an hour after being taken bad. Andrew Mc MAHON gave very similar evidence, with the addition that deceased vomited some blood. Both witnesses stated that deceased had often complained of symptoms which pointed to disease of the heart. Dr. ROSS said that from the evidence given by the witnesses he was satisfied that deceased died from heart disease, aggravated by exertion.
The jury being satisfied as to the cause of death returned a verdict in accordance with the evidence.
The remains were brought into town yesterday and placed in St. Paul's Church, a number of country settlers and townspeople forming a funeral cortege.
The body will be conveyed to NAPIER by the s.s. Te KAPU tomorrow, and thence be forwarded to DUNEDIN by the boat going South next Saturday for interment in DUNEDIN.
The late John GLENDINNING came to this district about five years ago, having purchased Mr HASSELL'S interest in the WAIHUA run. He was elected a member of the County Council two years ago, which position he held till his death.
At the Council meeting last Saturday a motion conveying votes of condolence to the widows of the late Councillors Thomas PARKER and John GLENDINNING was passed unanimously. The Council also adjourned till the evening, the members paying a tribute to the memory of deceased, and expressing sympathy with his family in feeling terms.
The Rev. Mr WELSH also in Sunday night's service alluded to the sudden death, and spoke in impressive language of the sad event.
Much regret is expressed here, and deep sympathy for the widow and family of five children, two of whom are grown up.
Deceased was 47 years of age at the time of his death.
There was a good attendance at the special congregational meeting in St Paul's Church last evening. The Rev. J.G. PATERSON presided.
Business taking place was the nomination of three members as elders and the annual presentation of prizes to the members of the Choir.
For the position of elder those nominated were: -
Messrs J W CRAIG
Prizes were distributed to members of the choir for attendance and proficiency in the knowledge and practice of music as follows: -
Following four were equal:
The choir sang three anthems, and solos were given by the following members
of the choir: -
Reihi te OMAHUMORE, a Maori woman aged 80 years, was found dead in the Te HAUKE swamp on the 1st inst.
The deceased left her whare at Te Hauke about noon on Thursday to obtain "Maori cabbage" from the swamp.
As she did not return a search was made next day, and Keita KEREAMA, a grand-daughter of the deceased found her body in the swamp with the head partly under water.
The body was brought to the pa and buried next day. It is believed that deceased, who was very infirm, must have lost her way in the raupo, and falling in the water was drowned.
The matter having been reported to the police the body is to be exhumed,
and an inquest will be held at Te Hauke today, before Mr H.S. WARDELL,
Richard LEE was fined 5s and costs for drunkenness.

The remains of the late C.H. WEBER will be interred in the Napier cemetery
this afternoon, and the friends of the deceased gentleman are requested
to meet at the cemetery at 3.30 o'clock. It is conjectured that Mr WEBER
must have died from heart disease, some of his relatives having died from
a similar cause, and this theory seems borne out by all the circumstances
attendant upon Mr Weber's disappearance and the finding of his body. The
deceased was a most expert bushman, and could not have lost his way.

Mc KENZIE was desirous of catching the train at 9.30 o'clock, and accordingly started in SNELLING'S cab for the railway station. A few minutes later SNELLING was found unconscious on the road near the corner of Munro and Stations streets. He was taken to Dr de LISLE's surgery, but the doctor being out the unconscious man was taken to Dr CARO'S.
He proved to be badly injured, his wound including a cut on the head which had laid bare the skull, and some severe contusions on the face and Dr CARO ordered his immediate removal to hospital and with Constable FELTON accompanying him thither. SNELLING became partly conscious today but has no recollection of the accident, and the only suggestion he can make is that he must have had a fit and fallen off his cab.
While all that had been related was happening to SNELLING on Saturday night, his horses took the cab on to the railway station, thence into Carlyle Street, round the Hyderabad road, through the Spit, and safely threaded night traffic of the Shakespeare road, until they slackened down to breast the hill.
Mr GILMOUR, of PETANE seeing them pass driverless, got on the box and drove to the company's stables, where he left the vehicle and horses to be found by their owner.
On opening the cab at the stables, the gentleman who was in a hurry to
get to the station was found sleeping peacefully within, blissfully unconscious
of all mundane affairs.

Woodville correspondent writes under yesterday's date: -
Much concern is expressed in Woodville and Palmerston at the disappearance of Mr WALTON, surveyor, of the latter town. He started yesterday from Woodville on horseback, and his horse was afterwards found riderless. A thorough examination of the river and the ground on each side of the road of the Gorge has failed to discover any trace of the missing man.
Lately a man named Charles Ocean THOMPSON, whose name was once familiar
to your Napier readers has attempted to interest Palmerston People in
a copper mine which he claims to have discovered near the bridge at this
end of the Gorge. Mr Walton was interested in ores and in the collection
of specimens. It is thought that perhaps he dismounted and entered the
bush to examine the place, and that some accident has happened to him.

The matter has been reported to the police, and telegrams have been forwarded
to all outlying stations. The father can advance no explanation of the
occurrence, except that he has a married daughter at TAKAPAU whom the
child was anxious to join, and that the latter may have gone out with
some vague idea of finding her way to the bush. The missing girl is very

John TRACEY and George REID gave evidence saying that he saw defendant carting could along the road, but were unable to say of their own knowledge where he had obtained it.
After hearing defendant's statement, which amounted to an admission of the charge and penalty of £30 could be inflicted, but defendant would be fined 13s, witnesses expenses 10s 6d, solicitor's fee £1 1s.

THE DOG CASE
For the defence, George WILLIAMS, who formerly owned the dog, and Bernard O'KANE "who was in the habit of visiting the premises at various hours of the night and day," testified to its harmless character.
Edward BROPHY who described himself as "not an expert in horse-riding," but considered Miss CUNNINGHAM's horse was going as fast as it could;
J MILLER, a boy named CULLEN, Sylvester WOODCOCK, and the defendant himself gave a description of the accident and it appeared that the dog was an angelic and innocent victim of a wicked horse, who behaved as if he wanted to adopt a dog diet, and to start by eating a raw St. Bernard.
Captain PREECE said that the evidence was very contradictory. If he were
sure that the dog had deliberately rushed at the horse he would have inflicted
a severe penalty, as people had no right to keep these dogs without seeing
that they were under adequate control. He dismissed the case.

MR JONES' DEATH
The death of the member for HEATHCOTE this morning was not altogether entirely unexpected, as he had been seriously ill for months past from jaundice and congestion of the liver, which prevented him from taking his seat in the House at all this session.
Mr JONES was a much respected member of the Opposition Party, and he had been paired with Mr James MILLS, a Government supporter, who is at present in ENGLAND.
The deceased gentleman rarely spoke in the House, but he was very seldom absent from his place, and was generally most assiduous in his attention to Parliamentary duties.
The vacancy for Heathcote will not be filled up, as the General elections are held in about eight week's time.

Meeting was to consider punishment administered by Mr CUTHBERT..more..It
was resolved "That as a result of the report bought up by the sub-committee
appointed to investigate the charges against the second-master, no teacher
in the school will be allowed to strike any child either with the hand
or anything else on any pretence whatever; but that whenever a child requires
corporal punishment, the teacher of the class shall take that child to
