Death Thought by Physician to Have Been Due to Alcoholic Poisoning

William Hanna, a stone mason residing on the Laughlin Elliott farm, back of Smith's Ferry, died suddenly at 1 o'clock yesterday afternoon (Sept. 17, 1906) in John Hayes' blacksmith shop at Esther, Pa. The deceased was 50 years of age, a widower, and he leaves a son and a daughter, both living at home.

Hanna went to the Hayes blacksmith shop in the forenoon to have some picks dressed. He appeared at the shop again just before noon, and as Mr. Hayes had not had time to do the work he went to his dinner.

Mr. Hayes noticed when he left that Hanna was under the influence of liquor. When he returned after dinner Mr. Hayes discovered Hanna in a crouched position in a corner of the shop. He approached and spoke to Hanna. Receiving no reply Mr. Hayes took hold of his arm and shook him. The man fell forward on his face, apparently lifeless.

Mr. Dawson was summoned and Hanna died shortly after his arrival. On inquiry it was learned that Hanna had been drinking heavily for several days, and from the symptoms manifest Dr. Dawson gave it as his opinion that his death was due to alcoholic poison.

The coroner was notified, as was a brother of the deceased, Harvey H. Hanna, residing in Dewey avenue, East End, East Liverpool.
