"Possibly the inquiry would cl-velop into a serious one; it depended on the view the jury took of th? evidence. Tho Foreman: Do you think then will bo any move evidence? It looks to me to be a simple case. The Coroner: Tbsre may or may not. be. I will have to put. several points of law to you which I don't want to open to you to-day. Possibly there might be questions of legal l'e- sponsibility for the death of the child outside the question of the driver, so that I don't wish to go into that. Tho Foreman: The facts seem to me very simple. The Coroner: Well, I am afraid you will have to allow me to be the judgo of how thfe) inquest is to be conducted. I wish to meet you in every way I can, but I don't feel I should be acting rightly as coroner if we dis- posed of the raise to-day. and I propewe to adjourn it to another day. and with ix>gar<l to that, I will meot you gentleman all I can. lire Foreman Well, it is a very busy time- just now, you know, for country psoplc and farmers. The Coroner: That is why I wa.nt to nwt your convenience. The Foreman: It rneaas a lot of ns being brought here again another day. A Juror: How would Sunday do? Couldn't we hold it then? The Coioner: Sunday is a dies non in law. How would six o'clock next Monday do? A Juror: Six in the morning. (Laughter.) I'm sure it would suit, very well. The Coroner: I would liko to try to oblige you by coming at six o'clock in tlio morning, but you see I live at Tattenliall. (Laughter.)
