CABDIFF DROWNING CASE. INQUEST AND VERDICT, At the Cardiff Town-hall on Wednesday night Mr. E. B. Reeca (coroner) held an inquest touch- ing the death of Henry Gillespie (21), a commer- cial traveller in the drapery line, whose body was picked up on Tuesday morning at low tide on a gravel bank at the mouth of the River Taff, near the Windsor Slipway. He was fully dressed when found, and had two stones in the left-hand pocket of his overcoat and another heavy stone in the right-hand pocket.—Henry Gillespie, father of deceased, said he lived in Kirkcudbrightshire. Witness gave evidence or identification, and said his son had been about six weeks in business in Cardiff as a draper. Witness was fairly satisfied that the body he viewed was that of his son. He identified him by means of an old wound in the left thigh, but the face was so discoloured that he only recognised it with difficulty. The Coroner: Do you think deceased was in any trouble?—His last letter home was written in an unsteady hand, which led me to believe that he ha-1 relapsed into his old complaint of S. Vitus' dance. George Mackenzie, a young draper, had known deceased for eleven days, having lodged with him at 3, Fitzhamon-embankment. Deceased had seemed very jolly, but was not strong, and complained of his head. The last time he saw deceased was a quarter past six on Sunday week, when witness went to church and left deceased in the house to open the door for him. On his return he missed him, and the landlord said Jie had gone cut. Had never noticed anything strange in his manner.—John Frazer, draper, carrying on business at 3, Fitz- hamon-embankment, said deceased was in his employ, and had lived with him five or six weeks. He was always sober, and his conduct was exemplary.—The jury returned an open verdict.
