FLINT. DEPRESSION IN THE CHEMICAL TRADE.—The United Alkali Company have caused notices to be published at their works in Flint stating that a number of the men will be discharged at the end of this week and others put on half-time. MILITARY FUNERAL.-—The remains of John Davies, the young man who was killed at Flint station last week were interred on Saturday in the Flint cemetery with military honours. The deceased was a member of E Company, 2nd Battalion R.W.F., and a large number of volunteers, under the command of Major Dyson, and headed by the Flint Volunteer Band, who played the Dead March,' were in attendance. CYCLE RoBBERY. — On Friday evening a respectable-looking young man, who gave an address in Chester, entered into negotiations with Mr. F. L. Swindels, of Flint, for the purchase of a bicycle. Ultimately he asked permission to give it a trial, and then rode it up Church-street in the direction of Northop. Seeing him rather long in returning, Mr. Swindels procured another bicycle and went in pursuit of the would-be purchaser, and traced him as far as Buckley, but as it was getting dark he lost trace of him there. He gave information to the police, and a warrant has been issued for his apprehension. SAD RAILWAY FATALITY.—A sad accident occurred at the Flint Station on Wednesday morning. A porter named John Davies, about 22 years of age, who resided with his parents in Upper Queen-street, was in the act of crossing the line with a box, to meet the 7.50 p.m. pas- senger train, when he was caught by a ballast train which was approaching on the down line. He was found lying in the six-foot in a terribly bruised condition, and before Dr. Robert Jones, who was immediately sent for, arrived, he expired. Much sympathy ia felt for the decoased's parents. Another porter who was crossing at the same time had a very narrow escape.—-Mr. R. Bromley, coroner for Flintshire, held an inquest at Flint on Friday on the body. Mr. G. W. Taylor, stationmaster, said the deceased had been in the employment of the company only three months, and he warned him in the usual manner as to the precautions he was to take.—Hugh Williams, Bangor, driver of a ballast train, said he blew his whistle some distance before entering the station, and kept it blowing while he went through. A passenger train was in the station, and he saw deceased make a rush from the platform to cross the line, but did not see him struck. He drew his train up within a length and a half.—John Thomas Roberts, stoker of the ballast train, said he saw deceased struck by the buffer of the engine, and he was afterwards caught, by the side bar and knocked into the six-foot.—The jury returned a verdict of 'Accidental Death.'—Mr. Fenna watched the case on behalf of the railway com- pany, and said the deceased's father would be entitled to JE80 as compensation from the company's insurance fund.
