(To the Editor) BURIAL WITHOUT INQUIRY Sir,-You are to be commended for your out-spoken article "Burial Without Inquiry" , in your last is sue, and the perfunctory manner in which the thing has been carried out deserves "inquiring into.' Knowing as I did that the police had been communicated with and (teeming that an inquiry would be held I was astonished when I heard that the Police Magistrate had issued an order for burial and did not deem an inquiry necessary.
