BELFAST OFFICE TRAGEDY. When Henry Geeran Workman, emltoywl in a tile merchant's yard at Earl-street. Be^ast* entered the premises in the morning he s&w a light in the office window. Going into the office he found his employer, Mr. John Leeh»rn, aged 37, lying behind the door apparently dftad, while on a chair, near a gas stove, was a woman unconscious. Assistance was at once procured, and the couple were conveyed to one of the hospitals, but it was found that the man was dead. The woman, whose name is Annie Adair, aged 32, soon recovered consciousness. It is stirmis ;d that the couple were overcome by the fumes of the gas, the office being a very small room, and the fact that the man's oody was found behind the door suggests that he was in the act of opening the door to cool the office when he collapsed. In the course of a statement the woman said that some time after she entered the office Mr. Leeburn "took a weak turn," and a few mimitetf later she became unconscious. Mr. Leeburn was well-known in business circles.
