Sudden Death of Mr. Dennis Delaney.

An inquest touching the death of Mr. Dennis Delaney, which occurred suddenly at his residence, Gumly, on Friday night last, was held at Gumly on Saturday morning before Mr. District Coroner Fosbory and a jury of seven.

The only witness examined was Mrs. Delaney, widow of deceased. In her evidence witness stated that her husband appeared to be in his usual good health on Friday, and on that day went into Wagga to transact some business. He returned home in the afternoon, and attended to his work as usual.

He had his tea about dusk and retired to bed about 9 p.m. Witness remained up for some after her husband went to bed, attending to her household duties. About half-past 11 she heard her husband coughing, and went to the bedroom to see what was the matter with him, it being an unusual thing for him to have a cough.

Upon entering the room she found her husband lying on his back, gasping for breath, and quite black in the face. She immediately raised his head, and applied cold water to his forehead, but he only gave a groan and died in her arms. Only a few minutes elapsed from the time she first heard the coughing till he died.

Witness then rushed across the road to a neighbor's, and despatched messenger for Dr. Morgan, who arrived within an hour. Dr. Morgan stated that he was called about midnight on Friday, and at once went lo the residence of deceased. He examined the body the subject of the enquiry immediately on reaching the house, and found life had apparently left the body an hour previous to his arrival.

He had since made a post-mortem examination of the body, and found that the heart was loaded with fat, and the walls, venticles, and valves defective. Death in his opinion must have resulted from engorgement in consequence of enlargement of the heart, and the stoppage of its action.

The jury returned a verdict in accordance with the medical testimony that the cause of death was disease of the heart. Deceased, who was only 44 years of age, was a long resident in the Wagga district, having been in the employ of Messrs Donnelly and Co. for over 30 years.

He was for many years employed on the Borambola station and latterly as overseer on the Gumly Gumly run. He was always looked upon as a sober steady man, and had made a large number of friends in every direction. In his younger years he was a well-known athlete, and held at one time a record for the district as a high jumper.

Only a few days before his death he received a policy from the Widows' Fund Life Assurance Society for £150. He leaves a widow and four young children for whom much regret is felt by their large circle of friends.

The funeral took place on Sunday, and was one of the longest seen in that part of the district for many years. Following the hearse and mourning coach was a procession of 47 vehicles and 80 horsemen. The cortege was a most representative one, and included friends from every direction.

The remains were buried in the Roman Catholic portion of the Wagga Cemetery, the services at the grave being conducted by the Rev. Father McElroy.
