SHOCKING STREET SCENE AT SHEFFIELD. TWO CHILDREN KILLED. children lost their lives at Sheffield on Monday during the ]-regress of a Baudot Hope j procession through the streets. An empty dray was standing in a side street, and a number of children got on to it to watch the procession. Some of them were forced uff by the pressure from behind, and fell upon the horse. This caused the animal to take fright, and it dashed among the crowd of spectators. For. time there was a tr- rible panic, and men, women, and children were throw n down and trodden upon. Many persons wcre inj med, The "Press Association," telegraphing later, says :—Thousands of children took part in the procession, and tens of thousands lined the route to the. gar-lens. A Midland Railway dray was standing in the street, and, notwithstanding the remonstrances of the drayman,it soon became crow-leu with children, who tuok this means of unserving better the gaily-decorated waggons competing for prizes. As one particularly elegant waggon passed the children applauded loudly, and the horse, taking fright, attempted to bolt, dragging the dray along and throwing most of the children upon the road. A panic instantly oc- curred; m'lny of the children were trodden upon by the horse or run over by the dray, and the spedators increased the panic by rushing blindly about and crushing each other, some falling down in a heap. When the excite- ment had somewhat subsided, it was found that a score of persons had been severely injured. Two children died almost immediately. Their names are Frederick Lawless, four. years old, who lived in Sarah-street, and John Chunes Summers, two years old, of Jericho-street. About ten eases of more or leas serious injury were attended to at the Jubilee Hospital, whilst many of the sufferers were removed immediately to houses of surgeons in the immediate neighbourhood. The accident has occasioned a very painful feeling in the town.
