A magisterial enquiry was held to- day regarding the death of Henry Cox Coytec, one of Sydney's best-known and rising solicitors, whose body was yesterday foiad in a bedroom at his summer resldenca ab Manly under circumstances pointing to suicide by taking ' rough on rats.' A cap was found on the table near the body con taining traces of arsenical poison, andtdere was a partially emptied box of ' rough on rats.' The medical evidence showed that death had resulted from arsenical poison iDg. A letter was read from Mr. Ooyler's medical adviser showing that. the latter had been much worried and overworked lately, and was not in a sound state of mind. The jury found that death was due to a dose of ' rough on rats' self administered. Mr. Ooyler, who was 47 years of age, was most highly respected, and apparently had a brilliant career before him.

XO THE EDITOB. Sir— I have read Dr. Allan Campbell's letter, and thoroughly agree with the senti ments therein contained. But after all it is only sentiment. Why does he not set the example himself and join That grand octogenarian, Dr. Mayo, late colonel of Prince Alfred Eegiment, not only spoke and wrote, but showed his patriotism by work, not talk. We have too much of the latter. Drs. Stewart, Clindening, Popham, Lendon, Symon, Hay ward, Toll, and a lot of other professional i gentlemen have already set the example, and j let Ds. Campbell by personal service show he : Kif.i,ue what be writt* fetoat, It ia bis power, , tt I think it is, let him also do wha he Cfcn to irduce employers of labor to do like wise. For upwards of 30 years I have through evil and good report endeavored to do my duty to my country and family in defence matters, at a cost of time and cash which I do not state for fear I should be considered to be drawing the long bow. I have now four sons employed in office...
