An inquest was held at the Hutt yesterday afternoon, before the District Coroner (Mr. Ashcroft), on the death of the late Mr. George Mudgway. Evidence was given that the deceased rose shortly after 4 o'clock yesterday morning, and about two hours later was found hanging by the neck outside a shed near his house, and it was evident that he had committed suicide. He was to have been examined by Dr. M'Arthur, S.M., yesterday relative to his old-age pension and his connection with the transfer of some property. He had only a life interest in the cottage in which he lived. A verdict of Suicide while Temporarily Insane was returned.
