Pembrokeshire Brothers Killed. Trehafod Colliery Victims. A distressing double fatality occurred at the Trevor pit, Lewis Merthyr Collieries, Trehafod, on Monday night, the victims being two brothers, James and George Morgan, Wayne-street, Trehafod, sons of Mr Thomas Morgan, who is a brother to Mr William Morgan, Parkymorfa, Fishguard, and Mr David Morgan, Middle Mill, Solva. The two brothers were regular visitors to Fishguard, and on the occasion of their last visit, were staying with Mrs Rees, at Jubilee Terrace. The deceased, who were engaged as colliers, had completed their day's shift, and had left their working places to proceed to the bottom of the pit, when suddenly a heavy fall of roof took place and overwhelmed both men. Two other workmen were approaching the spot at the time, and narrowly escaped a similar fate. These men raised the alarm, and a large body of miners immediately set to work to remove the debris from the im- prisoned men. Their efforts were speedily rewarded by the recovery of George Morgan, who was still alive, but he succumbed in a few minutes. The arduous task of removing-tons of stone and earth-which was not unattended by risks owing to the unsafe condition of the disturbed roof-was prosecuted with all vigour by the workmen in their endeavour to reach the other brother, but when his body was extricated from the centre of the fall' life was extinct. Both bodies were conveyed to the home of the grief-stricken father on an ambulance, preceded by a large number of workmen. The night shift at both Trevor pits and the night shift of the adjoining colliery, the Bertie, as a mark of sympathy, customary on these occasions, did not descend the mines on Monday night.
