BEEZIE WHITE:S BODY FOUND.
Clothing Became Entangled in a Piece
ot Timber In the River at
The dead body of a woman was ob
served in tbe Lackawanna river, under
tbe bridge near the National breaker
of William Connell & Co., yesterday
morning at 7 o'clock.
A grappling iron attache 1 to a long
rope was entangled in the dress of tbe
corpse after which the rope was fast
ened to tbe underwork of the bridire to
prevent the remains from floating down
the stream. In this manner the body
was left uutil tha arrival of Coroner
Kelly. When he reached the place he
ordered that the body be removed from
the water, but there were uo friends of
the dead there to undertake the task.
A bystander. Martin Pnllbin, of
Minooka, volunteered to go into tbe
river, which was very high, A long
rope was fastened to the sleepers ou
top of tho bridgo and he slid down on
it to the river forty feet below. He
then tied the rope around tbe body and
it was drawn up and removed to a
spot near the weigh office of the Na
The coroner had by this time em
paueled a jury, consisting of Thotuae
J. Flanuery, Michael T. Howley, Mar
tin Philbiu, James C. Beamish, Patrick
F. O'Hara, and C. J. Evang. The re
mains wera viewed, and W. D. Ken

His testimony was to the effect that
tbe body was that of Miss Beezie A
White, the domestic who lived with
him up to the uight of March 11 at
1717 Washington aveuue.
It will be remembered that the pa
pers at that time contained an account
of the disappearance of Miss White
and tbe fact that she left a note stating
that they could look for her body iu
the Lackawanna river.
Mr. Kennedy identified the remains
as those of Beezie White, from the
plush sacque, wine colored dress, gait
ers, and uppsr false teeth. The corpse
was so badly decomposed that her fea
tures were unrecognizable.
Coroner Kelly notified Undertaker
Uwen Cusick and the body was con
veyed to bis establishment late in the
afternoon. Miss Whitd is supposed to
havo been demented when she left
Kennedy's residence on March 11, The
river in the vicinity of Providence was
immediately dragged, but no trace of
her could be fonnd
The jury last night returned a ver
dict to the effect that Miss White
drowned herself while suffering from
