LAWRENCE, September 13.

The body of John Waters, who met his death by the collapse of a wire suspension chair at Roxburgh about a month ago, was found by some boys yesterday on one of the beaches of the Clutha River, at Horseshoe Bend. An inquest was held to-day, when a verdict of " Accidental death" was returned.

A large number of applications for special claims and licensed holdings in the Waipori district were dealt with in the Warden's Court, Lawrence, to-day. The application of the Waipori Alluvial Gold Dredging Company for a special claim of 300 acres, which was adjourned for a survey, was granted, as was the application of R. Pilling and party for a 200-acre special claim. Leslie Norman's and James Taylor's applications were reduced to 100 ajres each. The Gold Dredging Company have accepted a tender for a steel dredgo, which is to be at work in four months' time.

Captain Pearso has Pilling and party's claim under offer to a London syndicate.
