OHRISTCBURCK, May 6. The inquest on.the late David Henderson Brown, who died, at the hospital on Friday last from injuries received through hie being knocked down by a motor-ear in North Road Papanui, on the previous evening, was resumed before the Coroner, Mr S. E. McCarthy, yesterday. The Coroner stated that he had ordered a post mortem, to enable the doctors to ascertain the exact nature of the deceased's injuries, but by some mistake the body had been buried before the post-mortem examination could be held. He .would therefore record a verdict, having heard the evidence at the opening of the inquest, that de-. ceased died from injuries received from being run'over by a' motor-car driven by C. M. Barnett, there being no evidence of negligent driving.
