MR PEAIN'S DEATH,

INQUEST ADJOURNED. Having called the evidence of Dr Church (given on another page), which showed that deceased's fall was the result and not tho cause, of the fatal hemorrhage, Chief-detective Herbert said thai he anticipated the Coroner ■would tako the view that there was now sufficient evidence to determine the causo of death, but the polico felt that the whole of the circumstances leading up to deceased's fall should be placed on record in the evidence of those who woto present. It appeared that deceased and tho man in .custody were strangers when they met in the bar of the Gladstone. Deceased had a th& with him with which tho man charged was making himself free, so that deceased 'told him to leave it alone. They seemed to have had a drink later and to have resumed the argument. Both were apparently under the influence of liquor—as near drunk as possible—and they got into holds, and deceased fell on the ground. Several people present said that deceased was not struck, but one man stated that he was Tho Coroner (Mr Graham) said that the doctors evidence showed that he did not think a blow caused death, and the state of the brain was probably the result of excitement. He could only find a verdict ol meningeal hemorrhage, but he would like to have the evidence leading to that excitement and would adjourn tho inquest till 10.30 a.m. on Ihursday.
