      The report that a body supposed to be that of either Miss Ida May or Miss Jane Corrigan had been found near Willoughby yesterday is believed to have been started by some joker or by an ignorant person. Capt. Motley and several members of the life saving crew went to the place where the body was said to have been seen floating, but could not find either the body or the person who reported the finding to the county morgue by telephone yesterday morning.

     The beach between here and Willoughby will be patrolled by Capt. Motley and his men again today. The tug George C. Lutz, with Capts. James and John Corrigan aboard started out early yesterday morning to drag the lake near the scene of the disaster in the hopes of finding one of the two bodies still unrecovered. All day the crew dragged, but with no results. A number of cartridges of dynamite were exploded under water in the attempt to release the bodies that might be fast in the muddy lake bottom, but no bodies came up. The dragging will probably be tried again today.

     The remains of Baby Rieley were placed in the vault at Lake View cemetery beside the remains of its mother. yesterday. A brief service was held at the vault. conducted by Rev. Abel P. Buel, a retired Baptist minister and friend of the Corrigan family. It is the intention of Capt. James Corrigan to wait until all of the bodies of his family are found before any of the remains are placed in their permanent resting place.

     It was expected that the coroner would begin his inquest into the disaster Tuesday, but he said yesterday that the inquest would be postponed to a later day in the week, perhaps Thursday. In explanation the coroner said he was waiting for the other bodies to be recovered. The crew of the Idler will be subpoenaed. Providing Mrs. John Corrigan and Capt. Holmes are in condition they will also be examined.

     Many people called yesterday at the Shipowners'drydock to view the yacht.
