THE CORONER'S REPORT. Mr THELWALL, coroner for the Wrexham district, handed in his usual report to the Clerk. In the case of a woman who died in childbirth, at Rhosllanerchrugog, lie stated that she died from want of medical attendance." Sir WATKIN W. WYNNâDoes that statement imply any blame on any medical officer ? The CoronerâIt does not. The fact is the husband went to several medical men and asked them to come and attend his wife, but as he could not pay the u-ual fee of one guinea t'nev all refused to do so, and the woman died soon afterwards, whereas it is highly probable the woman's life would have been saved by the attendance of a medical man. In my opinion the m';n and woman were to be bla.med for not having engaged the services of a medical man previously. During some remarks which followed, Mr WHALLEY found fault with the system adopted hv the coroner in reporting his cases. He urged that Mr Thelwall ought to put in his reports, not his own opinion of the cause of death, but the bona fide verdict of the jury in each case, and the lion, gentleman moved a resolution to that effect, adding that it ought to be publicly known that if in a case of that kind a man was not at the moment prepared to pay the fee, he could call upon the relieving officer, who would give him an order on the medical officer. If the man were in a position to pay afterwards, the relieving officer could call upon him to do so to the union. The Clerk, the Rev. G. LI. Roberts, and other magis- trates defended Mr Thelwall. The CORONER stated it was not the rule now to send the depositions to the assizes, but that he was compelled to keep them in his own custody. On the motion of Mr CHAMBERS it was decided that in future the coroner should bring the depositions with him to the quarter sessions, to be inspected if necessary. Mr THELWALL-I have not the slightest objection. I will do so, but I cannot let them go out of my possession; otherwise the Lord Chancellor might come down upon me. The Coroner then applied for an increase of salary, as the term of five years had expired which was required by the Act under the previous arrangement. The salary for the last five years was C150 a year. It was decided that a committee should consider the application, and report to the next quarter sessions.
