Peter Syneseal, a Hollander 52 years of
age, died In a choking fit at the home of
John Hendrickaon on Sixth street and
Sixth avenue just after supper last even
ing. A jury was impanelled by Coroner
Hawes, consisting of 8. F. Cooke, fore
man. L. V. Eckhart, Matthias Buncher.
W. J. Zeis. William Eroeger and E. D.
Green, who viewed the remains and af
terward examined a number of witnesses.
The first witness called was Christine
Tage, who testified to the deceased com
ing to Mr. Hendrickson's house and re
questing Mrs. Hendrickaon to get some
beer for him, whicb she refused to do.
Witness further stated that on Mr.
Hendrickson's 8' rival home he invited
Syneseal to hav: supper, which invita
tion the latter ac epted. The next thins;
witness noticed was that Syneseal was
choking aad stv Mr. Hendnckson carry
him out and lay him d jwn outside and
send for a doctor.
John Bohart was then called and tes
tified to having known deceased about
83 years, that he was a Hollander by
birth and had been in this country about
14 years. Witness stated that Synesial
had been working at Atkinson, 111., but
had been drinking heavily for two or
Officer John Schaab was next called
and testified to having known deceased
by sight for about a month past, during
which time he had been, in witness'
opinion, under the influence of liquor.
The last witness examined was John
Hendrickson, who corroborated the testi
taony of the first witness as to the facts
of Syneseal's death and of his having
sent for a doctor. He also testified as to
Dr. Ludewig responding and pronounc
ingtbe man dead.
After hearing the testimony of the dif
ferent witnesses the jury retired and
shortly returned a verdict that "deceased
came to his death by the excessive use
of alcoholic drinks for three weeks."
The remains were taken in charge by

Mtage as This.
It is difficult to imagine, when we
consider the extreme high water of last
June, ihut the river should now be at an
uaufuiliy low stage. Yet it is true
Boats are however, able to navigate with
out the difficulty that in former days was
experienced when the water was low.
The work of the United States engin
eers is apparent at such a stage as this,
Instead of shallow crossings, obstructing
bars and menacing snags and chains.
there is free passage from one end of the
navigable river to the other. Some
times a boat will labor a little in shallow
space, as her wheel digs the water out
from under bottom faster than it can
run into the gap, but there is do such
thing as grounding, and the soucing
pole is not used unless making a 8 trance
landing, or landing in a very ticklish
place where the pilot is sot
real sure of his ground. It is not
many years since the stage that
bow preyails would have amounted
practically to the lying up of river traffic
except in a small local way. There is
no proof of the correctness of a theory
and a system like the demonstration by
application; the actual performance; and
when a pilot takes a deeply laden boat
over places that could not have been
crossed in former times it is fair to con
clude that good work has been done in
keeping the road open. Maj. Macken
zie is especially complimented by the
steamboat men for the work be has done
in keeping their highway open. As long
as he has it in charge they feel that tbev
will have all the advantages that any en
gineer can possibly give them. If they
don't get a clear channel it will be be
cause the water or the money run out.

At tbe meeting of the Second Ward
Cable club at the Phoenix hose house last
night there was a very large attendance,
