WREXHAM I WREXHAM&RHOSELECTRICjTRAMWAY. Great interest was manifested on baturday by the residents of these towns, in the formal opening of the electric tramway system from Johnstown to Wrexham. The system adopted is the "overhead one, and the whole distance of the line is 41 miles; the scheme has been promoted by the British Electric Traction Company, London. The head- quarters are at Johnstown, where a large shed, workshops, and offices have been erected on the site formerly occupied by the old tram shed. We learn that it 13 intended shortly to extend the system to Brymbo and Coedpoeth, and also to Llangollen, via Ruabon. COLLIERY ACCIDENT. On Saturday an alarming accident happened at the Wrexham and Acton Colliery. It seems that as the carrier, containing twenty men, was being lowered down the shaft, the brake refused to act, and the men were dashed with terrific force into the sump. The scene which ensued, as described by an eye-witness, was an awful one, and many of the men received terrible injuries. Dr. J Drmkwater was quickly on the scene, and three of the worst cases were taken in ambulances to the Wrexham Infirmarv. while the others were carried home. Inquiries at the Wrexham. Infirmary elicited the in- formation that the three men taken there are James Phoenix, Rhosnessney, William Parry, Rhos- robin, and J no. Roberts, New Rhosrobin. Parry and Roberts are seriously injured. Work at the colliery was at once suspended for the day, those who were already down the pit being brought up another way.
