DREADFUL ACCIDENT TO A NEW- PORT MASON. On Saturday night, after traffic was stopped, a gang of workmen were repairing the Wye Valley Railway Bridge, which crosses the Wye at Red- brook, near Monmouth, under Mr. Walkely, ganger of the district. About nine p.m. they went up the line to a hut, which is about 40 yards on the Mon- mouth side of the bridge which crosses the road near the Bush Inn, Redbrook. At this place the men had supper, among them being Mr. Snook, foreman mason, who lives at Newport. The night was very dark, and before ten o'clock Mr. Snook walked out with the ganger, speaking of some suggested improvement, when Mr. Snook suddenly disappeared into the darkness. Search was made, and Mr. Snook was found on the high road below, a depth of about 18ft. He had evidently caught his feet in the signal wire and was precipitated to the road, falling on his head, he then being bleeding from the eyes, ears, nose. and mouth. Mr. Arthur Butghan, of Redbrook, with most praiseworthy promptitude, rode into Monmouth for the purpose of obtaining medical aid, and in the meantime the unfortunate man was conveyed to Mr. Jones's, Bush Inn. Dr. Woollett, of Monmouth, was soon in attendance, and whilst he was examining the injured man Mr. Burghan had a horse put into his carriage, in which the unfortunate man was removed to Mon- mouth Hospital in an unconscious state. His friends were communicated with, and several of them drove to Monmouth on Sunday. On Sunday night the poor feilow slightly regained conscious- ness, a.nd on Monday morning there was a slight improvement. Although he is in a most critical condition, the case is not quite hopeless. He has a wife and seven children.
