                                  AN ACT

     Relating to coroners and the holding of post-mortems, in the
        several counties of the Commonwealth.

        Compiler's Note:  Section 2901 of Act 130 of 1955 provided
            that Act 288 is repealed insofar as it relates to
            counties of the third through eighth class.
        Compiler's Note:  Section 3301 of Act 230 of 1953 provided
            that Act 288 is repealed insofar as it relates to
            counties of the second class.
        Section 1.  Be it enacted, &c., That in counties of this
     Commonwealth, where there shall be no morgue owned or maintained
     by the county, the coroner may remove or cause to be removed all
     dead bodies that may be found in any public place, or the body
     of any unknown deceased person found within the county, or the
     body of any other deceased person on which it may be necessary
     to hold a post-mortem or inquest, to any private morgue within
     the county, as to him may seem most convenient for the purpose
     of holding such post-mortem or inquest.
        Section 2.  That for the use of any private morgue for post-
     mortems or inquests, the owner thereof shall be entitled to
     receive as compensation a sum to be fixed by the Salary Board of
     the proper county, to be paid in the same manner that the fees
     of coroner's jurors are now paid.
