Mr EAMES gave a dog poisoned with strychnine a dose of chloroform to allay its pain, or technically to control by relaxing its muscular contractions; he then gave it strong dose of chloral, and later, to put it out of its misery, a dose of prussic acid. But to his surprise and delight the dog gradually recovered. Chloral is, I believe the antidote for strychnine.

REDFERN, ALEXANDER and Co's Suspension

The person, whose death and withdrawal of capital is alleged to have caused the suspension of the well known London firm of REDFERN, ALEXANDER and C o, was Mr Philip VANDERBYL. He was the principal partner in the firm, and was also concerned in several colonial institutions which are also connected commercially with the firm in question.

The late Mr VANDERBYL was formerly a London physician of great eminence, and the author of several medical books which are regarded as standard works on the subjects treated. He relinquished his profession to become a London merchant. He was very wealthy, and a very able man of business, and sat in Parliament for some years for a Somersetshire constituency.

Messrs REDFERN, ALEXANDER and Co were the LONDON house of some important NEW ZEALAND firms, as well as agents for individuals, and a good deal of anxiety is felt here until a further information is received.

HBH 1892 September 5

A fire took place early yesterday morning, and resulted in the total destruction of a house on the Bungalow-hill in the occupation of Mr J.K. GOUDY. The house a seven-roomed building, the property of Mr B.A.FERARD, was an old one, and went like tinder when once fairly alight. The usual residents are Miss GOUDY, Messrs GOUDY and GRAVES, and the housekeeper, Mrs TROY. Miss GOUDY is away on a trip, however, and Mr GOUDY has gone on business to BLACKHEAD, so that at the time of the fire the only occupants were Mr GRAVES and Mrs TROY. Mr GRAVES was awakened shortly after 3 o'clock by a crackling noise and upon hastily rising found the front door on fire. Very shortly afterwards the flames broke through, and were seen by the night watchman, Mr ROBSON, who at once raised the alarm. Owing to the difficulty in arousing anyone at the 'Bus Company's stables, and consequently of getting horses, it was some time before the brigade (which mustered well) got any plant on the ground, and nothing could be saved. Mr GRAVES tried, as soon as he discovered the fire to save some of the furniture, but the spread of the flames were so rapid that practically everything was consumed, and the house had collapsed by the time the brigade reached it. The cause of the fire was caused by the chimney so remarkably unfit to act as a chimney that it is a wonder that the house was not destroyed years ago. The lower part was composed of a mixture of pumice, cobble stones, and bricks. At a place just above the top of the opening arch a hole as large as a man's fist existed. The fire when discovered was burning from this spot as a centre, and there appears no possible room for doubt as to the cause of the fire. We have not learned whether the furniture was insured.

Inquest SUICIDE
An inquest was held at the Albion Hotel on Saturday night, before Mr F. SUTTON J.P., acting coroner, and the following jury: - Messrs P. GLEN (foreman), Matthew SPRINGGS, Benjamin WATSON, Harry SHEFFIELD, Joseph WEBB, and J. LEIVESLEY.

An inquiry into the circumstances attending the death of George WATTS, a man apparently under 20 years of age, who was found on Saturday forenoon dead with his throat cut, in a room at the Albion Hotel.

Deposed:

Dr de LISLE.more

John NEILSON, jeweller and watchmaker, deposed that he had known the deceased for the last fifteen years. He had lately been living at Temuka, Canterbury, and arrived in Hawke's Bay by the evening train on Thursday, September 1st.

He came to Hawke's Bay to fill an appointment in connection with the co-operative store and he was to commence work on Friday morning, but excused himself from doing so on the ground that he wanted to get lodgings and look around the town. He was thoroughly sober on Friday night at 10 o'clock, but seemed very melancholy. Witness attributed this to the fact that his wife had died within the previous six months. Deceased was a member of the Anglican Church and took an active part in choir and other church matters in Temuka.

Cornelius O'DRISCOLL, licensee of the Albion Hotel.more.and he saw a letter on the table which read : -

"Dear Father and Mother, if it possible to forgive me do so, but life in me is robbed of all its pleasures." No signature was attached.

The evidence was concluded with the hearing of the witness and verdict was "that the deceased had committed suicide while in a state of insanity."

We have received from Messrs WHYTOCK and Co., Hastings a brochure entitled "Ayont the Seas; or Fourteen Months Abroad." It is a pleasantly written narrative, and describes the experiences of the author (who ingenuously states that he is a young man) during a trip to and fro about Great Britain.

WELLINGTON

The Naval and Military Settlers' Committee have not yet decided the question of extending the time for receiving applications

The clause of the Land Bill providing that married women should not have the right to take up land under special terms is considered to be unjust by several members. The Minister of Lands, however, claims that the clause is absolutely necessary, as also does Mr ROLLESTON

The ex-Minister for Lands (the Hon. G. F.RICHARDSON) stated in the House on Friday night that he was somewhat astonished at the audacity of the legislation that the House was drifting to. They had recently gone back about 5600 years and amended the creation by giving the franchise to women, and now the Minister for Lands was taking them 999 years ahead by his lease in perpetuity.

I understand that steps are being taken by some of the women in Wellington for getting up a largely signed petition to the Legislative Council, urging the council to pass the female franchise clause in the electoral Bill.

Amongst the passengers for Sydney by the steamer Hauroto are Mr and Mrs D.M.LUCKIE, who have received news by cable that their third son, Mr Frank LUCKIE is dangerously ill.

The ten youths charged at the R M Court yesterday with black-guardism at Clive on the 18th of August on evidence of person officiating Mr OSBORNE. His Worship stated that there was not sufficient evidence to convict more than those who had pleaded guilty, who were each fined 5s and costs.

He considered, however, that all of them were more or less implicated, and said that those not fined should assist in paying the fines of those who were. No one suggested that the decision sounded as if from Gilberd and Sullivan.

James M'EWAN-for connecting a private drain with the public drains without a formal authorisation to do so. Fined ?1 and costs.

T.GOULDING fined for allowing a horse to stray fined ?1 and costs.

J.HATWELL and J PEACOCK-each of whom allowed a cow wander at its own sweet will, each fined ?1 and costs.

J.JENSEN for allowing six cows to be on the roads fined 6s and costs

W.BLACK, two of whose cows were found on the Railway line, fined 6s and costs-Probably a very severe treatment meted out to him-2s 6d per head as opposed to 1s

A sling of two bales of woolpacks was being lowered, and having bumped against the ship both bales fell out of the sling, one striking HARRIS.

The injured man was at once sent ashore in a boat and was taken in an express from the wharf to his home. He appeared to be badly shaken.

Subsequently a doctor was summoned examine the sufferer, and on arrival found him so seriously injured he ordered him off to hospital.

We regret to learn that one of the poor fellow's thighs is broken, and that his condition is very serious.

The Navals were then put through some useful drill by Lieutenant GOOCH in command. The Rifles were under command of Lieutenant SWAN, who put them through some useful drill in skirmishing, manual exercise, &c.

The late visit of Captain FOX has undoubtedly impressed the officers and non-coms, with the necessity for improvements in all their movements, with a hope in the near future of their capitation being raised, of uniforms being imported duty free, and an encampment annually.

Mr John BUCHANAN, at one time one of the best known figures in connection with Hawke's Bay Politics, died at a very early hour yesterday morning (between 1 o'clock and 2 o'clock) in his 73rd year.

The deceased was among the very earliest settlers in the district. When he first came to the colonies he landed in New South Wales, where he stayed for a time. Owing to himself and wife being stuck up by bushrangers, which caused Mrs Buchanan to lose her reason, he came over to New Zealand.

He settled in Hawke's Bay about the year 1855, and from that time until quite recently he took a very active interest in all the concerns of the province. He sat in the Hawke's Bay Provincial Council for several years, and at one time was Speaker of the Council.

He unsuccessfully contested the Napier seat when the representation of the town was linked up with the court districts, but in 1881,, the town by that time being entitled to a member of its own, he was returned and sat in the House as member for Napier for three sessions.

Recently Mr Buchanan suffered much in consequence of a tumor or similar growth upon the cranium, and for this he underwent an operation. Since that time he has been in very failing health, and the end came not unexpectedly, although suddenly.

The funeral will take place this day, in the Napier cemetery.

THE JACOBSEN CASE

Messrs SAINSBURY and LOGAN, solicitors to the Board, wrote in reply to questions put to them in connection with a case raised at the preceding meeting of the Board by Mr S.JOHNSON, almoner for the Board at WAIPAWA. It appeared that a man named JACOBSEN, a widower with several children, and the owner of a farm section and a house at NORSEWOOD, some time ago started from the latter place to go to PAHIATUA, to fell bush. He had money in the bank, and was said to have ?30 sewn into the lining of his waistcoat.

One of the children could not support herself, and he left her with a Mrs CHRISTIANSEN at NORSEWOOD, promising to send money for the child's support. He was never heard of again, and did not reach PAHIATUA, nor could he be traced to any other place.

Somebody had put it about that the man had gone back to DENMARK, or which country he was a relative, but a letter written to a relative in that country dissipated that view, and the general opinion was that he was be dead.

Prior to leaving Norsewood he locked up his household furniture and other belongings in one of the four rooms his house contained, and gave authority to a man named WINGER to let the house. The woman with whom the child was left could not afford to keep it, and applied to Mr JOHNSON for relief, when the above facts were elicited.

The question submitted to the Board's solicitors was as to the property owned by JACOBSEN could be made to contribute towards the support of his child. The reply was to the effect that the case was provided for in the Destitute Persons Act, 1887, and that a magistrate could issue a summons under that Act which need not necessarily be served upon the parent if he could not be found. All other necessary proceedings were provided for.

It was decided to refer the reply of the Board's solicitors to Mr JOHNSON, for him to take the necessary proceedings.

Waipawa

The man Edward DOWNES, who met with an accident on Monday, died at the hospital last night. An inquest will be held in the morning as witnesses reside at a distance, and the police are today making the requisite inquiries.

The principal facts, so far as I can learn, care these:

Deceased was out of work, and had been about town for a few days, having come from OTAGO in search of employment. He met with a man who had taken out a bush-felling contract somewhere beyond Hampden. His employer went on horseback, but whether at the same time it is not known.

A dray containing goods, including a large packing case, and driven by Richard STAUNTON, was going to Hampden, and deceased was allowed to travel by it, sitting on top of the big case. Somewhere on the road the dray went into a deep rut and jolted the man off, and he fell in front of the wheels, which passed over him, inflicting severe internal injuries, and he bled freely.

The driver conveyed him to the Hampden Hotel, and Dr. GODFRAY was sent for, and on seeing the state he was in ordered him to be taken to the hospital, which was done, but the poor man succumbed last night. It is a serious coincidence that the accident occurred on the same road as a recent similar case, when a bullock-driver of Mr. HASTIE'S fell off a dray and was fatally injured, and STAUNTON was present on that occasion and saw the accident from a short distance.

The following team has been chosen to represent the PAKI PAKI Football Club in their match against the Napier Football Club on Saturday next: -

ARMIT Thomas
Inquest

The inquest on the body of a man supposed to be Thomas ARMIT, late chief of the Vacuna, was held at the Shakespeare Hotel last evening before Mr F.SUTTON, J.P., and the following jury: -

Messrs COGSWELL (foreman), FABLING, WILLIAMS, MUIR, STACK, and DOYLE.

Claude COLHOUN, a small lad 10 years old, residing at the Spit, deposed yesterday that "he saw a dead man lying on a flat piece of concrete on the south side of the breakwater. The body had no head on and was nearly naked. He met another boy named John FRANKLIN, and told him what he had seen, and then showed him the body. He and FRANKLIN then told a man named TAYLOR who was working at the breakwater, and TAYLOR sent word to the police."

Thomas TAYLOR a labourer, stated that after being shown the body by the two boys he told Mr MILLER, who communicated with the Sergeant of Police.

Constable HARVEY deposed to finding the body, which was heedless, had both arms broken, and was otherwise much cut about. He knew Thomas ARMIT, late chief mate of the Vacuna, who had shown him certain tattoo marks on his arms, and he felt no doubt that the body found was that of ARMIT.

It was believed that ARMIT had deserted from the Vacuna. ARMIT had told witness that the "captain was a very hard man top get on with." The body seemed to have been in the water about two or three weeks and did not know of any rows having taken place.

Michael WIIG, sail maker, residing at NAPIER,, testified that he knew a man named Thomas ARMIT, and he and ARMIT had sailed together in the Pendle Hill for three or four months and "he knew that ARMIT had a tattoo mark on the inside of his right arm. The mark was the English navy flag, with a red cross, and the stars and stripes. ARMIT was a man of about 5 feet 8 inches in height, and as far as witness knew a temperate man. When he was working with ARMIT on the Pendle Hill the latter had a go ashore suit dark in color and similar to the remains of trousers found on the body. ARMIT also wore elastic-side boots when going ashore." He had seen the body found that day, and "to the best of his belief it was that of Thomas ARMIT."

Hrry MASON, seaman, late of the Vacuna, also gave evidence identifying the body from the marks upon it and from the remains of the clothes found upon it as Thomas ARMIT. MASON "last saw ARMIT alive on the Vacuna on Sunday morning, August 28th, at about 8 o'clock."

Mary MILLER, who had washed clothes for Thomas ARMIT, said that the "socks and trousers produced were similar to those she had washed."

Harry BROWN, seaman, residing at the Spit, also testified and stated that ARMIT was quite sober when he last saw him and he could not identify the body found.

The jury returned a verdict that "they believed the body to be that of Thomas ARMIT, and that he had met his death by drowning, but whether accidental or otherwise, or when death occurred, there was no evidence to show, and the jury could not determine."

Thomas ARMIT, whose body was found yesterday, was a man about 38 or 40 years of age, and is believed to have some relatives in Wellington. It appears strange that on his sudden disappearance no effort was made to find out what had happened to him.

His letters, discharges, and photographs were left behind in his bunk on the Vacuna (late Flying Scud), and this seemed evidence to many at the port that he could not have run away from the ship, for no matter how much of a hurry an officer may be in he generally takes with him his papers, as they are necessary to his getting another ship.

WATERWORTH

Mr WATERWORTH is making arrangements for improving the method of laying down tar pavements in the town. A large boiler is being erected in the Corporation yards, so that all the tar used can be not only well boiled, but also deprived of substances which, while valuable in themselves, yet prevent the tar drying quickly.

These products are eliminated by distillation, which gives a compound of naphthalene, ammonia, and crude carbolic acid. These being taken from the tar leaves the latter better than before as a footpath-forming material, and Mr WATERWORTH hopes to still further utilise the compound by separating the carbolic acid, with which to manufacture a cheap disinfecting

WOMAN FRANCHISE

A most absurd fiasco has occurred in the legislative Council in connection with woman franchise. After all the tremendous fire and fury which certain Councillors have fulminated over this question they actually allowed the obnoxious provision to pass twice over without noticing it or voting on it.

The interpretation clause which enacts that "person" includes woman slipped through this evening without its scope being observed by the hostile Councillors, some of whom (notably Sir George WHITMORE) were away, but who came back rampant with indignation when they discovered what had happened, and threatened all sorts of reprisals, but then they found to their horror that they had actually enacted female franchise previously without being aware of the fact, by passing clause 6, which defines the qualifications of male or female voters, specifying every person having of "his or her" own right a freehold, &c,; "and every person who has resided for one year in the electoral district for which "he or she" claims to vote.

A regular row ensued on this discovery, Sir George WHITMORE threatening to stonewall the bill line by line to vote on the question, and sir Patrick BUCKLEY implied that he would take similar action as to the electoral right amendment. In the end it was agreed to take the question as to woman franchise again tomorrow.

PORT DISTRICT SCHOOL

The report of the Inspector on the examination of the Port School was forwarded to the committee yesterday. The following abstract will doubtless be gratifying both to the teachers and to the parents of the children: -
Number on roll 165 boys, and 141 girls;
Number examined in standards 103 boys, 88 girls, total 191.
Number passed 96 boys, 77 girls, total 173 being 55.9 per cent of the number on the roll, and 90.5 per cent of those presented in standards.

Last year the percentage of passes on the whole school was 53.7 and 83.1 per cent of those presented in standards. This shows a substantial improvement for the year's work.

The following are the Inspector's remarks on the examination: -"The infant department under the charge of Miss MURRAY, the mistress, and the Misses PRENTICE and LINDSAY, pupil teachers. The work is much more advanced than at the date of my examination last year, and the department as a whole is in better working order. The teaching is in earnest, and the style of work shows careful supervision and guidance. The progress in each class is satisfactory."

"Standard I.-Teacher in charge, Miss REDWARD, number examined 41, passed 40. The pass work has been well prepared, and much of the work is of high order of merit, arithmetic, spelling, and writing being particularly good. The class and additional subjects were well prepared, and the style of the work in the exercise and copy books gave evidence of careful supervision."

"Standard II.- Teacher in charge Miss GODDRD, number examined 45, passed 45. In all the pass subjects the work is of a high order of merit, the reading, writing, and spelling mostly excellent."

"Standard III.-Teacher in charge Miss SPILLER, number examined 38, excepts 2, failed 1, passed 35. The results in this standard are highly satisfactory, and good progress has been made in a wide syllabus of instructions."

"Standard IV.-Teacher in charge, Mr J.H.TRIMMER. Number examined 33, passed 27. Very commendable progress has been made by this standard, and the results are on the whole satisfactory. This standard is always a very difficult one to prepare, and the progress made shows that good work has been done. The style of the work throughout is good and the improvement in reading is marked."

"Standard V.-Number examined 23, excepted 1, passed 18. Standard VI.-Number examined 11, passed 8. These standards are under the immediate training of the head-master Mr WOLSTENHOLME. They have done exceedingly well, and in some cases the work is of a high order of merit. In arithmetic every pupil, excluding one except, gained pass marks, and a similar remark applies to reading, spelling, and dictation. In the class and additional subjects the work is very good, especially history, in which the class obtained full marks."

"It will thus be seen that the School has passed a highly satisfactory examination, and I have to commend the master and his staff upon the fine tone existing in the school and the excellent progress made during the past year."

He was subsequently placed in a cab and sent home. The horse was no stopped, and has probably found its way towards the Shamrock.

Any personal that will be unable to play are requested to inform at once the Secretary, Mr R.C.TYLEE.

An accident of a serious kind happened yesterday afternoon, the result of which at this time of writing is still uncertain.

A little boy named David MOLE, aged about five years, residing in the White Road was playing near his parent's house as the afternoon train was passing, he ran suddenly into the road, with a view to get nearer to the railway line, and was knocked down by a horse and trap being driven by Mr J. LOPDELL, Junr.

The occurrence is purely accidental and reflects no blame upon the driver of the trap, as the poor little fellow ran out into the road so suddenly, in the excitement of watching the train, that it was impossible to stop the trap in time. The wheels, however, did not pass over the child, who was knocked down by the horse.

Constable WARD, finding that the child was unconscious, had him conveyed to the hospital, where he was attended to. Later his parents took the child home, where he is now under the care of Dr. INNES. The poor little fellow had not recovered consciousness up till a late hour last night, but a fatal termination is not anticipated.

Messrs MOFFATT and PAIGE, the well known educational publishers, of Paternoster row, London, have sent us a specimen of a wooden set square scale, and protractor combined, for school work. It is a most useful little article.

Householders will note that Mr A. MOODY, of Milton Road Napier, desires a share of the public patronage as a chimney sweeper. Mr Moody states that he prides himself on doing the work in a cleanly manner, and leaving no mess to be cleaned up after his departure, a point that will no doubt interest housewives.

The Supreme Court was formally opened for business yesterday morning in order to release the sureties of the Maori, KURIPAPANGA. This young native was committed for trial for larceny and allowed out on bail. The theft alleged against him consisted of taking of a number of articles and a horse from a relative at MOAWHANGA, and the defence at the preliminary hearing of the case was that the defendant was not guilty of larceny according to Maori custom.

Under the circumstances the Crown decided not to present an indictment, and hence the necessity of the application for the release of the sureties. This was ordered, and the Court rose.

Following cases were heard at the Bankruptcy Court-

CHISSELL BROS - Application for discharged-granted
James IRVINE-Granted but suspended for three months for failure to keep books
William MAYO-no opposition and discharge granted
RONBERG and CLAUSEN-postponed to allow of a statement being submitted by the assignee.

HBH 1892 Oct 17 MACKINTOSH James

INQUEST REPORT

An inquest was held at the London Hotel on Saturday, before Mr F.SUTTON, J.P., and the following jury: -

Messrs F.E.SAUNDERS (foreman), T.T. M'CARTHY, J.YOUNGHUSBAND, C.ROBJOHNS, M.ROLLS, A.DOBBIE. Sergeant CULLEN conducted the inquiry on behalf of the police.

The reasons for holding the inquest were a somewhat peculiar one. On Wednesday last, the 12th instant, John Colin MACKINTOSH, a youth 15 years and one month attending the Marist-Brothers' school, went home complaining of pains in the head. He got worse on Thursday and Friday, and on the latter day the parents called in a gentleman who advertised himself as "Dr, J. MACLEOD, C.M., M.D., M.C.P., et L.C.S.," and offers to provide advice and medicine for 5s.

The lad died, but the authorities could not take a certificate of the cause of death from the medical attendant, because he was not on the register of persons authorised to prescribe as legally qualified practitioners, and hence an inquest was rendered necessary.

James MACKINTOSH, father of the lad gave evidence as to deceased coming home from school on Wednesday last complaining of pains in the head. His mother gave him some aperient medicine, but as deceased got worse they sent for "Dr. MACLEOD" on Friday. The deceased died at midnight on Friday.

John MACLEOD deposed that he had resided in NAPIER ten weeks. He was called in to attend the deceased on Friday, the 14th inst. He was unconscious and had convulsions. Witness applied cold water to deceased's head, and ordered ice to be procured for that purpose. Also applied mustard poultices to the calves of the legs, and ordered a mustard poultice to the nape of deceased's neck. The boy was seriously ill, and witness told his parents that another doctor should be called in. Witness was not present when the boy died.

By Sergeant CULLEN: Objected to state whether he was a legally-qualified medical practitioner. He would answer nothing except as to the death of deceased. (Gazette notice of medical practitioners of New Zealand shown to witness.)

The Coroner, to witness: Sergeant CULLEN'S question is a very proper one and must be answered.

The witness stated that he was not aware until a few days ago that he was not on the register, and that he had taken steps to have himself placed on it. He had received a telegram from the Registrar-General a telegram informing him that the Napier Registrar had been instructed to provisionally recognize witness's certificates.

The Coroner objected to take that statement as evidence unless the telegram from the Registrar-General was produced. The witness produced the telegram, and stated that it was the telegram he referred to.

The Coroner: Then it becomes my duty to read that telegram to the jury (Telegram read.)

The Coroner to witness: Do you still say this telegram authorised you to practise as a legally-qualified medical practitioner? Witness said he did regard the telegram in that light.

The Coroner: I am surprised at you attempting to mislead the jury in this way. The Registrar-General says distinctly that your name was removed from the register by his predecessor, and that he will leave it so, and that you are not a duly-qualified medical practitioner.

The witness admitted that his name was not on the list of practitioners, but said that it was once on the list. His qualifications to be placed on the roll were sufficient.

Dr. JARVIS gave evidence as to a post-mortem examination of deceased by himself and Dr. MOORE. Death was due to inflammation of the brain. In reply to a question he said that the treatment of the case by Dr. MACLEOD was suitable.

The coroner in summing up said that the evidence plainly pointed to death from natural causes. In reference to the long cross-examination of the witness MACLEOD by Sergeant CULLEN, he was of the opinion that the questions asked were pertinent, for had the witness MACLEOD'S name been amongst those medical men on the list in the Gazette, a certificate of the cause of death would have been accepted from him, and there would have been no need for the inquest.

The jury at once brought in a verdict of "Death from natural causes."

FLEMING Funeral

A large number of friends and those connected with athletics attended the funeral of the late Mr J. FLEMING yesterday. The deceased was universally popular, and many came in from the country to pay the last tribute in his memory. A number of very handsome wreaths were placed upon the coffin of the deceased.
