Died of Spasms.
Coroner L. V. Eckhart impanelled
a jury this afternoon to inquire into
the cause of death of an infant child
of lxntie Coonlev, a girl who is stav
ing with Mrs. Wright at 1015 Elev
enth avenue. The young woman
came here from Morrison abou, three
weeks ago. and last Friday gave birth
to a child. This mornini: the babv
was found dead, and Dr. E M. Sala
who was called upon for a certificate
of death, refused to issue it. The
evidence, while not making the cause
of death entirely clear, was of such a
nature as to exonerate the mother
and the verdict was that the child
came to its death from spasms. Ar
ranfjements were made to take the
mother to St. Anthony's hospital.
