THE BODY EXHUMED. DOCTORS FIND THAT MRS. M'KEE'S NECK WAS BROKEN. Coroner Gamble Act« by Order of Attor ney-General Biggs—Drs. Fahey and Manll Hold an Autopsy on the Body. Witnesses to be Examined. Public gossip has at last found its victim, and the mutilated body of Mrs. Anna McKee, wife of Tax Collector George W. McKee, testifies to its power. Acting upon instructions from Attor ney General Biggs, Coroner Kevin C. Gamble went before Justice Bertolette yesterday morning, and asked for a writ, recommending that he exhume the body of Mrs. KcKee from its resting place in the Wilmington and Brandywine Ceme tery, for the purpose of holding an in quest over it. Justice Berto lette issued him the following writ, after a consultation with the attorney-gen eral : "Wilmington, Delaware, "August 20, A. D., 1890. "To Nevin C. Gamble, Coroner. " I hereby recommend that the body of Mrs. Anna McKee be disinterred to hold an inquest thereon." "Levi A. Bertolette, "Justice of the Peace. " The Grave Opened. Coroner Gamble at once went to Super intendent S. C. Penrose of the ceme tery in which Mrs. McKee was buried and ordered him to open the grave that the post mortem might be held at 3 o'clock. He immediately called as bis as sistants Charles Brown, Alexander Pike, and Hugh Farra. and sometime before any action was taken J>y either the jury or the physicians the grave had been opened aud nothing but the board con cealed the handsome black cloth casket from view. The Coroner Selects a Jury. Earlier in the day Coroner Gamble had selected his jury as folio ws : Robert D. Morrow, George D. Cleland. Joseph J. Dugan, Peter A. Fagan, Thomas Mc Corkle, H T. Price of the Morning News, William R. Long of the Republi can, Frank W. Harold of the Every Evening aud George Carter of the Evening Journal. In order to avoid the publicity that would attend the matter ia case the jury went to the cemetery in a body, each juryman was requested by the coroner to meet at the office of the cemetery at about 3 55 o'clock, and Chief of Police Swiggelt, at the request of Superinten dent Penrose, placed an officer at the en trance to the cemetery for the purpose of keeping those persons out who were attracted to the place by morbid curl osity. , The grave is situated on the slope of the bill at the north side of the cemetery aud the romantic Brandywine could be seen from the spot where the body of the unfortunate woman was to undergo examination, The following persons were present in addition to the jurymen' Coroner Gam ble, Detectives Jones and Vandegrift, Superintendent S. C. Penrose, Chief of Police W. Y, Swiggett, E. M. Hoopes, Funeral Director J. A. Wilson aud his assistants. The jury waited some time for the arrival of Drs. Mauil and Fahey, the physicians who were to perform the autopsy, but after waiting for some time the c vroner ordered that the body be taken up, the jury sworn iu aud the autopsy held afterwards. Accordingly Jhe lid of the cedar box encasing the casket was raised, disclosing the casket, which was very dry and well preserved, considering the wet weather that has prevailed since the Funeral Direc body was interred, tor Wilson and his assistants then carefully raised the casket from the grave and placed it upon the stretcher. It was then carried to the waik a few feet from the grave, aud after a screen had been erected by tieing an awning from trees on opposite sides of the path to hide the operations from the eyes of a crowd rf curious people who had congre gated on the Adams street side of the cemetery, the lid of the coffin was re moved. When the burial cloth was pulled from over the lifeless form a horrible sight was presented to those assembled. The body was in an advanced state of decomposition, as it had not beeu em balmed, and there was not a man there who did not turn his head away from the sickening sight. The Jury Sworn. Coroner Gamble called the jury and they formed in a circle around the coffin, holding the Bible over the corpse, each juror having his right hand upon :the book. After they were sworn they hastily left the casket and assembled at a point several yards away, where they organized by electing Thomas McCorkle as foreman, and H. T. Price, secretary. After the organization had been effected, a motion was made and carried that "the jury do now adjourn, subject to the call of the coroner, and that an effort be made to secure the use of the grand jury rooms In the Court House for the meetings of the jury." The Autopsy Held At about 8.15 o'clock Dr.John C.Fahey, the coroner's physician, '.ad Dr D. Mauil ,wbo was to assist him in the post mortem, arrived, proceedings several of the party left, but a majority stayed to see the result of the examination that was to determine the causa of death. As the w. At this stage of the K cians progressed with the lade explanations as to the cause and effeot of the various bruises and wounds upon the body. First, the scalp aud peri cranium were removed and the skull eiposed to view. This disclosed the fact that while there were cuts upon the head there was no fracture of the skull ; nor were the wounds upon the head such as would have been made by • black-jack or any other Instru ment. They were evidently pro duced by the fall, and would not have produced instantaneous death. The top of the skull was then taken off revealing the brain. There was no congestion of the brain nor were the membranes cover ing it in the least affected. The bruise was up on the frutal bone of the skull, but there was some slight discoloration upon the side of the head In neither case had it affected the interior lining of the skull. The Neck Broken Dr. Fahey then made an incieion run ning from the base of the ekul! several inches down the back and exposed the vertebra». This explained the cause of death, for the neck was found to be broken at the first bone of the vertebral column. What the Doctors Say. Drs. Fahey and Mauil said: "That was the prime cause of death and she could not have lived more thgn two or three minutes under ordinary circumstances. The wounds upon the head might have caused death in some cases, out it would not have been instan taneous The cause of her death was due to the fall and not to a blow in flicted by any instrument in the hands of man. We came cut here perfectly un biased, but do not death was the result of anything but ac cident. The cranium does not show any indentation as if it had been struck by a black-jack or any other instrument. The prime cause of death was the broken neck, the second cause might, under cer tain conditions have been the wounds on the head ; but would not have been in stantaneous, and the third might have been drowning. In this case the cause of death was the dislocation at the base of the skull." think the The Body Again Burled. After the examination the body was again placed in its grave, and the party left the cemetery. Between twenty and thirty witnesses will be called before the jury. It is not known when it will meet, but some very conflicting testimony Is expected. NEW ACADEMY OF MUSIC. The Opening Night ol the Season Fixed for Thursday, August «8.

THE CONVENTION COMMITTEE NOTIFIES HIM. Organization of the State Contrai Com mittee — Personnel of the Officers. Kent's Convention, September 30. Racfio at the Dover Fair. The extra edition of the Evening Jour nal yesterday contalne d a despatch from Dover an account of the meeting ef Robert J. Reynolds with the committee to notify him of his nomination for governor, A portion of the dispatch is appended : Dover, Del.. August 30.—General B. R Kenney,J. Wilkins Cooch,and Edward Jester, the State Conventiou Committee to notify Robert J. Reynold* of his nomination,met at General Kenney's office at 1 30 this afternoon and officially notified Mr. Reynolds. The notifi cation, which was drafted by General Kenney, was read to the governor by J. Wilkins Gooch. It says: "The singular degree of unanimity with which you were thus selected, In dicates that you were the decided choice of a large majority of the Démocratie people of this state. The mani festations of distress through out the land and the causes leading to such distress being justly at tributable to the gross mismanagement of our public affairs, and the unjust and unequal tax laws that have been made and enforced by a Republican Congress and executive, demand the restoration of the Democratic party to power in the various departments of the Federal government. ' We can overlook the important fact that it would be exceedingly dangerous to commit to the custody of the Repub lican party of Delaware the man agement and control of onr domestic affairs, for if the Republican party should obtain full control of the execu tive and legislative department of the government of the state it would neces cessarily follow that that party would re vive the tax laws of Delaware in com formity with the onerous and iniquitous system of taxation, which the Federal Congress has fastened upon the whole country, which is in favor of monopolies and wealthy manufactures as against the people. "The people* ,fully® believing that you represent their cause as demonstrated by your many years of active service in the Democratic party, through their delegates in Convention assembled, have unanimously tendered yon this nomination,hoping that at your convenience, you will formally accept It in a letter setting forth clearly your views with reference to the political issues upon which the two par ties are divided Mr. Reynolds replied in a few well chosen words, and stated that he would send the committee his reply in a few days. There were present in the room many Democrats, who loudly cheered the prospective governor. STATE CENTRAL COMMITTEE. Colonel Steven« Be-elected 'Chairman. Dome Races far the Dover Fair, Special Correspondence Evening Journal. Dover, Del., August 27.—The Demo cratic State Central Committee organ ized yesterday afternoon by electing Oolenel W. H. Stevens, chairman; R. H Taylor, secretary, and William Herbert, treasurer. It was a deserved tribute to Colonel Stevens, for he has shown himself the right man in the right place during the two years be has occupied the chairmanship of this very important committee. Very few outside the "inner circle" know the amount of werk Colonel Stevens did two years ago as head of the Slate Central Committee. In Bob Taylor the committee has for its secretary, one of the handsomest men in the state, as well as one of the best fellows, socially and politically. He wasn't chaperoned yesterday by Senator Donaboe. It Is well to remark for the benefit of Senator John's Wilmington constituents, that Wilmington's Senator is about the most popmar of al! the pop ular Vv ilmiugton men who drop down to Dover. In "Bill" Herbert for treasurer the committee is all right on its finances. While the State Committee lived up exactly to the predictions made ty the Evening Journal, the County Commit tee aubstitued September 30 as the date on which Kent county's convention is to be held. Kent has a very level beaded county committee, as will be learned by October 1. This com mittee has also al the head of it a young Democrat, who is bouud to loom up one of these days into state notoriety. This is C. L. Williamson. The formal notification of "Governor Bob" of his nomination in General Ken ney's office yesterday was a happy affair. General Kenney has the knack of arrang ings things so that they will be just that way. The General drew tip a "notifica tion" that has a Democratic ring all through it, and be was complimented even by Governor Bob himself. The Evening Journal, which la looked upon down here as the Demo cratic lexion, might make the point that General R R Kenney has a record that makes him a factor not only in county, but in state politics.
