was wrecked in Lake Pontehartrain and all
cn board were drowued. The body of the
master, Miles Lee. was found a few days
ago and towed to the shore, and the coro
ner notified. As no coroner responded,
somebody kindly buried the body. Later
the body of one" of the sailors was recov
ered, biit still no coroner held an inquest,
and the corpse festered in the sun until it
was unendurable. The family of Captain
Lee, residing on Deiord street, was aware
ot the circumstance, and have been greatly
grieved over it. Last nigbt his little son
was at police headquarters, and made a
statement of the case, and if somebody has
not been derelict there is a terrible mistake.
Tim matter will have a thorough investiga
tion. _ __
