The Orari "Mystery."

In connection with the death of a man named Thomas Chambers at Orari rectify the Minister of Justice has informed Mr Flatuaan, M.H.E. for Goraldine that a most diligent and exhaustive inquiry shows most conclusively that the case in qnestior. was one of suicide, there being 1 no motive for murder and not the slightest suspicion of foul play. Commenting on the case the " Timaru Herald " says : " The Minister has not explained why medical evidence was not called at the inquest, and that is the sore point with the public. Members of the jury are unanimous that the cut in the man's throat was a deep one, and some even go as far as to say that the head was almost severed. There is still a great deal of talk in the district concerning the cash, and until the body is exhumed the matter will not rest. Mr Flatman has again telegraphed to the department, stating that the general public is not satisfied, and in his opinion the most satisfactory -way of determining the matter for all concerned is to have the body exhumed and medically examined."
