A WOMAN'S DEATH.

BAILIFF NOT RESPONSIBLE

AUCKLAND, February 13 The adjourned inquest on the; death of Catherine Heron, who died soon after an altercation with a bailiff who was ,renioving'some furniture from the woman's residence, has concluded. The' Coroner (Mr Ouften, S.M.) found that death was due to heart failure following a miscarriage. He said the evidence showed that deceased was in a very serious state of ill-health, and that she was roughly handled while the furniture was being removed, but the latter statement was contradicted by other witnesses. There was not the slightest doubt that deceased was much upset by what took place, and this, iii her extremely delicate health, caused a miscarriage, which led to her death; but he was unable to find that blame was-attachable to anyone. Such a finding would amount to a recommendation that criminal proceedings be taken, and h.e' did not think the evidence justified such a recommendation.
