    • Another person (William Cooke), while employed at Meteor Downs, died suddenly. It was thought possible some unfair means might have been used in this case, and in order to ascertain the correctness or incorrectness of this suspicion a post-mortem examination was ordered, but after examination the doctor stated there had been no foul play-that death was the result of long-standing diseases.
