A Showman's Death at Rhos. "THE END OF DADDY" Mr Coroner Kenrick held an inques at Ruabon on Tuesday on the body of a man who, until he met with the injury which resulted in his death, was known to his employer and associates only by the name of "Daddy" He was in the ser- vice of Mr William Davies, amusement caterer, Stoke on Trent, who was last week at Rhos with his roundabouts and other entertainments. Early on Monday Mr Davies gave orders for the removal of his vans and other stock to the railway station Ruabon, and in descending Brook street Hill I I Daddy who was the engine driver, and had nothing to do with the re- moval of the vans, gave assistance and took charge of the brake at the back of the first van. At the bottom of the hill, the horses attached to the second van be- gan to trot to gain impetus to ascend the next hill. The first van did not increase its speed, and being overtaken Daddy" was crushed between the two corners of the vans. In falling, he said, My name is William Anderson I am all right leave me alone." Dr Dallas was passing, and he at once took him in his trap to Ruabon Hospital, where he died ten minutes after admission. Dr Dallas said there were no external marks of injury, and he thought death was due to internal hemorrage. <- Mr Joseph Owen was foreman of the jury, and evidence was given by Mr Davies, who said Anderson was 4c or 50, had been in his service for six months. He only knew him as Daddy.' John Marshall, a fellow workman, and J Jones, Penycae, described the accident, and, without retiring, the jury returned a verdict of "Accidental death," and ex- pressed satis faction with the prompt as- sistance given by Dr Dallas.
