Special to the Star by Staff Reporter

Bradford, April 20.—After hearing evidence lasting an hour and three-quarters, and deliberating half an hour, the coroner's jury under Dr. James A. Cummings of Bondhead, inquiring into the death of J.W. Brooks, engineer on the C.N.R. train which was wrecked at Bradford last Saturday, returned the following verdict:

"We find death was caused by suffocation, scalding and shock, resulting from derailment of C.N.R. train No. 4, of which he was engineer. For lack of sufficient evidence we are unable to determine exact cause of derailment. Great credit is due to deceased for staying at his post and doing all possible for the safety of his train and passengers."
