An inquest touching the death of Frederick E. Fynmore, whose body was found last Monday in the Saltwater Creek, was held yester day morning in the Court, before B. Woollcombe, Esq., Coroner, and a jury, of whom Robert Webster was foreman. The following evidence was taken : — Henry Martin : I am a laborer, working at the tannery near Cabot's. Yesterday morning I observed a man's.
Detective Neil afterwards got the body out of the water. Where the body was found the water is about 16 feet deep. The body was fully dressed, except that it had no hat on. John Neil : I am a detective, stationed at Timaru. Inspector Pender. Searched its pockets. We found the two letters produced and a bottle labelled "chlorel." One letter was addressed to Mrs Fynmore, the other addressed to Mr Fynmore. I examined the body and found no marks of violence. He has resided in Timaru about six months, and has been missing since the 10th of this month.
John Eric Davidson : I have known the deceased for some years. He lately came from Nelson to Timaru. His wife Fanny Fynmore is here. I know the deceased's handwriting. The letter addressed to his wife is in his handwriting. He expected £1750 from England. I saw the letter stating his father was dead, and the money was coming out. I saw the death of his father cut out of a paper. Deceased was a commissioned officer in the Royal Marine Artillery. He had made arrangements to go Home. I know he took stimulants to make him sleep. He bought, a bottle of chlorel from Mr Watkins like the bottle produced. Deceased was sometimes in high spirits, and sometimes despondent.
Thomas Hall: I am a commission agent, and know deceased. We have been trying to get some money out from Home for him. He has had money remitted to him from Home previously.
Patrick Macintyre : I am a duly qualified medical practitioner. I consider, was caused by drowning. The chlorel moderately taken would produce sleep. The deceased was under my care, and I observed lately that there was something peculiar about him.
This completed the evidence, And the jury, after some deliberation, returned the following verdict: "That the deceased drowned himself on the 10th day of July, 1878, in the Saltwater Creek, while suffering under temporary insanity."
