Mr Patrick Kearney, an old servant of the Corporation, died suddenly early this morning at his resident Tinakori road. Yesterday he was at work in the yards as usual, but last evening he complained to his wife of feeling unwell, having pains about his body, and he accordingly went to bed. Later on in the evening Mrs Kearney despatched her son with a message to Dr Cahill. The doctor attended at 5 o'clock this morning and found that Mr Kearney was then dead. The presumed cause of death is heart disease. The Coroner is holding an inquest at the Karori Hotel as we go to Press.

Richard Kearney, son of the deceased, was examined, and the enquiry was then adjourned until 9 o'clock this morning to enable Dr Cahill to make a post mortem examination of the body.
