More Testimony Taken on Coroner's Inquest The Jury's Report. Poiitkand. Nov.4. Tue liody which embraced the corpse of Charles Albee Is supposed to bo that of the missing man Peterson, alleged to have been ou the car when it made lis disastrous plunge. WhoPeterson Is no one seems to kuow. Coroner Hughes, oven, can not give any information regarding him; he does not know oven who re ported Peterson as belug missing. The remains of Charley were accom panied to the morgue by the sorrowing father, who seems almost overcome with the loss he sustained. The boy'a face bore no trace of suffering, but It was marked rather by a serene placid ity, as if the unfortunate child hid crmm in n nleasaut dreamless Bleep. After tbo coroner's Jury yesterday afternoon had visited the i-ast Biae scene of the Madison-street bridge ac cident, thoy resumed examining wit nesses lu tho coroner's office adjoining t ho morgue. Cain is atlll dragging for the boay that slipped away into the water as the remaluB of Charley Albee were being raised.
