An inquest on the body was held at tho Morgue this afternoon by the district coroner (Mr C. C. Graham, S.M.). George Edward Taylor, son of deceased, said that of late his Tather had not been in a very good stale of health, having complained of pain in his chest and shortness of breath. He had also complained of pains in the region of his heart. About 18 months ago he ha'd consulted Dr Lindon, who told him he was suffering from heart disease. Dr Linden said deceased attended hk* in January of last year, and he found him to be suffering from serious heart trouble. At the time he did not make any note that ho anticipated an immediate death.
