River Teify Tragedy
River Teify Tragedy. PENARTH AND HIS NEPHEW DROWNED. There was a double bathiug fatality in the river Teify at Liandyfriog, Newcastle Emlyn, on W ednesday afternoon, the victims being John Frederick P. Evans (only son of Mr Roy Evans, solicitor, Newcastle Emlyn, who would have been nine years of age on Thursday) and his uncle. Mi- Guy Nell, of Cilrhedyn, Stan- well road, Penarth, and of the Cardiff Channel Mills, Cardiff. They went to bathe in the river a. few yards above Liandyfriog railway bridge, accompanied by the boy's governess, Miiss Hind. The boy suddenly got into diffi- culties in a deep pool, and Mr Nell went to his assistance. Both went under. Miss Hind tried to effect a .rescue, but failed, and ran for assistance. Several persons raced to the scene but were too late. Dr Powell, Newcastle Emlyn, was among the first to arrive, and when Mr Nell was brought up to the bank by Mr Daniel Davies life was extinct. Tho body of the boy was found also by Mr Daniel Davies about an hour afterwards. Both bodies were conveyed to the residence of Mr and Mrs Roy Evans. The tragedy has cast a gloom over the whole district. •Mr rSell. who was spending his holidays with his brother-in-law, Mr Roy Evans, was en- gaged at the Cardiff Channel Mills. He was the son of the late Dr R. F. Nell, who far many years was the Medical Officer for Penarth- Mr Nell has two brothers serving in his Majesty's Forces, namely Gunne Arthur Nell, who is with the R.F.A. in France, and Mr Hubert Nell, who is with the H.A.C. The deceased was a member of the Penarth Yacht Club, and some years ago played an excellent game at lull-back for the Penarth Wednesday Associa- tion Football Club.
The Churches. Public recognition of a brave deed rendered by Dr D. R. Thomas, of Taff's Well, one of the medical officers in the service of the Cardiff Board of Guardians, once resident doctor at the Carmarthenshire Infirmary, was made at a well-attended meeting at Tongwyn a s last Monday. Dr Thomas last March rescued thrc." invalids who happened to be in a room belong- ing to the Tymynydd Laundry at Radyr when a lamp exploycd. and secured their safety. UI one side of the medal is engraved a represen- tation of a man rescuing mother and children from fire. On the other side are the, words "Honour and Duty," with a record of Uio doctor's action. The presentation was mado by Lord Pontypridd. Dr Thomas is the only son af the Rev Issac Thomas, Ferryside. **» New Inn and Pencader C.M. churches have been greatly disappointed beoüausc the Rev antlais Williams, Ammanford, failed to comply with their request and become their minister. The fiasco and dismal ending of the endeaviur undertaken by the District meeting on behalf of the churches was received with sadness far and near, because he was considered to be the right man in the right place if he were to take the reins in his hand, which have been hanging loosely for too long a time. Mr M. Edwards, C,M.. whose two sons are in the Army, has been doing the work of a pastor. The denominational colleges have not yet decided what classes will be held during the next session because they do not know what number of students will be able or allowed to attend the lectures. In fact it has not been officially announced that entrance examina- tions will be held this year in some. There will be a. test at Carmarthen vPresbyterian) a.nd probably at Aberystwyth and Brecon, but all candidates, we are told, are supposed to have been exempted by the tribunals before entering. A meeting of the South Wales C.M. Associa- tion was held last week under the presidency of Dr D. H. Will iams, Newport, assisted by the Secretary, the Rev B. T. Jones, Neath, and supported by many ex-officers. At the Thurs- day Conference on the prpoosition of the Rev J. Morgan Jones, Cardiff, Principal Prys, of Aberystwyth, was appointed moderator for the ensuing year. The following candidates were accepted for ordination at the October meet- ing: Messrs D. J. Evans, R. Elias Jones, Robert T. Davies, Tom Beynon, D. J. Owen. Sidney Evans, Morgan J. Rees. D. Brynmor Jones, James Deans. T. Ivor Jones. W. Ed- wards, and J. Timothy Davies, Myddtai. «** The i-opoit of the 20th Century Collection of the Calvinistic Methodists which was started at the close of the last century and soon com- pleted in the new. is now published in a hand- somely bound volume at (3d, and may be ob- tained from the C.M. Bookroom. Carnarvon. It contains a detailed account of the magnifi- cent effort of which any connexion might well be proud of. Forward Movement celebration meetings have been arranged by various district meet- ings in Glamorganshire and Carmarthenshire. They will be held in all centres already estab- lished and also in areas where it is felt such facilities are now much needed.

Accidents at Pembrey
Accidents at Pembrey. ONE MAN KILLED FIVE GIRLS INJURED. An accident at Pembrey on Saturday, which terminated fatally, was quickly followed by another, whereby five persons were injured. The employees of a factory, including Ernest Chester, 2, Als street, Llanelly, were being conveyed to Burry Port in trucks, and when by Derwydd Crossing deceased jumped on to the foothard of a coach of a passenger train which was stationary on the siding. He caught hold of the carriage door which flew open and threw him under the trucks ,some of which passed over him. Both his legs were broken, the left leg being severed. First aid was rendered by Mr John Bevan, High street, Llanelly, who stopped the hemorrhage, after which the lad was attended by Nurse E. Jenkins, hut he succumbed later to his injuries. Deceased was the son of the late Mr Chester, coal merchant, who met with an accident last Christmas, when he fractured his thigh. Soon after the accident happened on Satur- day a collision uccurred between a train con- itaiiiing the employees of a factory and a light engine which was returning ti the works, when five persons were injured—four girls and a nurse. Two of the girls were from Swansea and two from Llanelly, Their injuries were not very serious. THE INQUEST. The inquest was held by Mr W. W. Brodie on Monday. Mr F. N. Powell and Mr J. Lewis Phillips represented interested parties. Fred Chester-, brother of the deceased, gave evidence of identification, and said deceased was a'plumber's assistant. When witness saw him last on July 30th. deceased was in good health and his eye-sight and hearing were good. The Coroner: Was he active on his feet? Witness: Yes. but the injury to his leg, which he sustained last Christmas, may have affected him a bit. The Coroner: What was lie doing then He was being conveyed with other men from work, when owing to the points being wrong the truck got upset. When did he return to work after that r- About three months later. Dr Owen Williams (Burry Port) said lie Raw the deceased at the works at about 2 o'clock o i Saturday, deceased having been taken back there after the accident. The youth, who was very collapsed, suffered from shock, and his left leg was completely severed, while there was a compound fracture of the right. Both thighs were lascerated and deceased died at 2.45 pm. Death was due to shock caused by the injuries. The Coroner: Were the injuries such as might have been caused by trucks passing over him ?—Yes. The Coroner: Is due provision made for attending to injured persons?—Yes. Mr Phillips: Did you see a qualified nurse in attendance ?—Y es. John Henry Jones (14), Temple street, Llan- elly, plumber's assistant, said lie finished work at 12.30 on Saturday, and deceased, who was working in the same place, finished operations at the same time. They then entered trucks on a private railway to bo conveyed to the crossing at Derwydd, where there was a work- man's train waiting. At the end of Derwydd crossing the private line joined the Burry Port and Gwendraeth Valley Railway. When you started, w ha t did the train com- pose of ?-About 25 open trucks. Were there any seats in them?—No sir. Were they drawn by one engiue —Y'es. sir. How did you get into the hucks r-There was a ladder for each truck. How far was it from where you started to Derwydd crossing?—About a mile. Witness said that he and the deceased were in the same truck. On reaching Derwydd' crossing the usual custom was to alight and walk to the G.W.R. station, but on Saturday deceased jumped from the truck on to a passen- ger train which was stationary on the siding. The Coroner: Did the deceased wait until the trucks you were in stopped before jumping out or not? Witness: No; they were travelling at about two miles an hour at the time. Continuing, witness said that deceased had stepped on to the grease box of the truck be- fore jumping on to the footboard of the train. Witness saw deceased catch hold of the handle of the carriage door, and almost immediately afte.r lie heard shouts, and the train brought to a standstill. About 50 men had got down between the two trains. The Coroner: UtcT you see the deceased slip o the footboard? itness No; when I next saw him there was a crowd around him. Is it usual to jump off the train before it has stopped ?—Yes. They do it every day. Have you known any accident happen there before?—Yes, last week a man had his legs off by jumping on when the train was in motion. Do you know anything about the accident I which'happened last Christmas?- Yes, I was in the truck. Someone changed the points, and three trucks, after going off the line, eoliided with some waggons. Replying to Mr Powell, witness said that the ladders were permanently fixed to the trucks, so that the men could get on and off in the same way. Mr Powell: Do you know that this train was only provided for a certain firm's employees? —No all the men use it. Do you know that you and the deceased had no business to be on the train at all r-No. If this boy had remained until the train had stopped he could have come down in perfect safety ?—That is so. Mr Phillips Eact truck had a ladder on each ,icle ?-Yes, sir. So that anyone could get off from the truck on the offside of the stationary train?—Yes, sir. And they would not be in each other's way? —That is so. Haven't you seen notices on the coaches warning everyone that if seen boarding or gett- ing off from a train m motion they would be instantly dismissed?- Yes. Are those notices on the trucks?—No. What is the idea of getting off the trucks in a hurry?—All the men run for the train. Is that because they do not want to stand up in the corridor?—No. there is plenty of room in the train. Does the train wait for them?—Yes. sir. John Bevan, 67, High street, Llanelly, fore- man. said lie was travelling by the train of trucks from the factory to Derwydd crossing- When the train was about to arrive at its destination and steam was being slackened he head someone shout "Stop. stop; there's some one under the trucks." The train was at once brought to a standstill. AYitness jumped out and ran forward to the injured lad. who was lying across the metals. The Coroner: In your opinion do you think the provision of ladders on each side of the trucks is sufficient ? Witness There could be great improvement. The Coroner: If, when the trafh stopped, the men took time to alight from the trucks the ladders would be adequate?—Yes. I suppose that whatever rules and regulft" tions were made there would be a. rush to get away from the train?- Yes, especially whoc amongst 700 men there are a good number oi boys. Replying to a juror, witness said that a large number of men invariably jumped from the trucks before they came to a standstill. A Juror: Has any man been dismissed in accordance with the notices for alighting be, fore the trucks are brought to a standstill?-" Not that I am awa,re of. A Juror: My point is to show the ivortliles-e ness of the notices. Mr Powell: But hey are no posted on tile trucks. The Foreman (,1!r D. Ambrose): Was this latt trespassing by travelling in the truck ? W itness: In my opinion lie was not. Mr Powell That is to say so far as you knotf Witness: Yes. ilr Powell: You know that the running of this train is voluntary by the company in the interests of the mcn? Yes. In your opinion, if the persons only acted reasonably, is there aiiy-reasoii why these acci- dents should happen at all?—No. Witness asked to be allowed to state that by the time the hemorhage was stopped a carriage and engine were prepared, and Nurse JenkiuS arrived.
