Inquest at Acton.
In consequence of a suspicion having arisen among the friends of the deceased Miss Lozier, that her death had been occasioned by poison, which might have been administered to her by Drumgole, who had attended and administered medicine to her for six nights before her death, an inquest was convened. The coroner was Dr. Clarkson Freeman, of Milton. Dr. Freeman of Georgetown, performed the post mortem examination, and Dr. McGarvin acted as medical witness. The inquest was very lengthy, lasting from 6 o'clock Monday evening till 3 o'clock of the following morning. The body, which had been lain eleven days in the grave, was exhumed, and although the medical men present thought there was no evidence of poison, but that she died a natural death, the jury decided by a vote of 10 to 2, to send her stomach to Dr. Croft, of Toronto, for analysis.
Mr. Storey, whose name appeared in our account of last week, as one of the three who so carelessly guarded the murderer, states that he guarded him until he delivered him up to the constable. Mr. Storey states that he is not a constable.
