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

afternoon had visited the i-ast Biae

After pomo tluio In tho ponltontlary
