In connection with the Grant Fox inquest the following from theTlmes-Star, is of interest: 'In a 'seance' at Hamilton last Thnrs day night, the participants were startled by the Information imparted by the spirit of Grant Fox, the Port Union sa loonkeeper, who was killed at a dog fight the night of December 10. The spirit said 'the accusation of Reuttinger is false, ani the guilty party is a well known Hamilton sport, described as follows: An Irishman, about five and a half feet high. He is seen everyday on the streets of Hamilton and as yet has not besn identified as one of the participants in tbe fight just before the killing.' The seance, conducted by Mrs. Barrett, formerly of Price Hill, was attended by a wef known city official .and a prominent •squire.- lately a hotelkeeper on Fifth street.

The spirit is said to have told a certain member of the circle to send word to his wife and inform her tha her father is not the gnllty person."
