Dead in his Bunk.


Dead in his Bunk. INCUEST AND VERDICT, On Friday afternoon, at the Penarth Police Station Mr Reece held an inquest on the body of Peklin, a Finn, who died as reported in another column. The master of the Longuiel, John Frederick Williamson, deposed to deceased being shipped at Drammen, Norway, on the 5th ult. He was a fairly looking strong man, but it was impossible to tell what was the matter with him as he spoke English very imperfectly. He, however, the man suffered from rheumatics, as he moved about very slowly; com- bined with this was a nasty racking cough, with ex- pectoration. One could not tell from his face if he were ill, as it was so disty. When found dead he was lying on his back in his bunk he had not been on duty for two or three days. James Martin, steward, stated he gave deceased a cough pill last Sunday night, and the cook gave hm some arrowroot about two hours before his death. By Dr Rees The expectoration was rusty-lookinc C, and streaked with blood he was also rather short of bieath at times. Dr Rees, examined, said he I ad examined the body, but failed to discover any marks of violence. The lower part of the body was quite bloodless- Death resulted from inflammation of the lungs. The jury returned a verdict of "Death from natural causee."
