Hughes, coroner for West Denbigh- shire held an inquest on the body of Lewis Evans, aged 62, blacksmith, of Graigfechan, who as reported in our last issue, sustained severe injuries on the previous Thursday. Mr, T. P. Roberts, acted as foreman of the jury. Powell Evans, Mwrog Street, identified the body lying at the White Bear Inn, as that of his father, but he knew nothing of the acci- dent. Price Morris, Borough Surveyor, said he was in Well Street, on Thursday, and witnessed the accident. Deceased was leading a pony down the street. He had some Iron in the cart which rattled, and caused the pony to become restive. Deceased in trying to hold the pony, broke the bearing rein, and the pony then made a rush, with the result that the cart came in contact with another conveyance. Deceased fell down. Witness went to him, and he asked him (wit ness) to fetch someone to him. Witness ran for Dr. Hughes. Deceased was then removed to the White Bear, and attended by Dr. Hughes. Dr. J. Medwyn Hughes said he was summoned to deceased at half past three on Thursday afternoon. He examined him, and found three ribs on the left side fractured. Deceased was a weak man, and was suffering from shock, from which he never recovered, dying the fol- lowing day. The jury returned a verdict of accidental death. The foreman moved a vote of thanks to the Coroner for the very impartial and lucid man- ner in which he had conducted the inquiry. Mr. William Thomas, draper, seconded, and it was carried. On the motion of Mr. J. E. Morris, a jury- man, a vote of sympathy with deceased's fa- mily was also carried.
