    • "Found in Faversham Creek.
      Need of a Public Mortuary.

      Mr. C. B. Harris, county coroner, and a jury,
      of which Mr. W. H. Ost was foreman, held an
      inquest at the Guildhall, Faverhsma on Thurs-
      day afternoon, on the body of Henry Amos
      Goatham, labourer, of 5, Minster-road, Faver-
      sham, which was found in the Faversham Creek
      the previous morning.
      Edwin CHarles Goatham, 40, Westgate-road,
      Faversham, identified the body as that of his
      brother, who was 40 years of age. He last saw
      him alive on the 4th instant, and he had been
      missing since the 6th. As a rule deceased was
      a sober man, and so far as he knew there was
      no reason whatever for him to have taken his
      life.
      George Henry Pack, bricklayer, 87, Abbey-
      street Faversham, said he had known deceased
      for seven or eight years. He was with him in the
      Red Lion public house on Tuesday evening,
      when he had two glasses of beer. They left to-
      gether at nine o'clock, and deceased told him he
      was going across to the Brents to have a sleep.
      Deceased was not drunk, and when he left wit-
      ness he said, "Good night; will meet you in the
      morning." They were going cherry picking to-
      gether the next morning. Tuesday was a very
      dark night and it started to rain when he left
      deceased.
      Sergeant William Dowsing, 9th Battalian,
      Royal Sussex Regiment, said he found the body
      about 8.30 on the morning of 14th July in the
      back water of the creek. It was between theC
      barge Perseverance and the dock wall, lying on
      its back bedded in the mud. The body was
      fully clothed, and appeared to have been in the
      water three or four days. The body could have
      been hidden by the barge and not seen for days.
      Police-constable Burgess said he was informed
      of the finding of the body the previous morn-
      ing, and he had it removed to a shed. There
      were no marks of violence on the body. The
      Police had received no report of deceased being
      missing. On the 6th July it was high water at
      7.30 p.m., when there would be 8ft of water at
      the bridge  At 9.30 there would be 3ft. of water
      both in the Creek and the back water.
      Dr. Gange said he had examined the body, and
      found no external marks of violence. The ap-
      pearance of the body was consistent with death
      from suffocation by drowning, and death had
      probably taken place some days previously.
      The jury returned a verdict of "Found
      Drowned," and added that in their opinion a
      public mortuary was urgently needed for the
      Borough."
