BLAENGARW, A Receiving Order in Bankruptcy has been made in the matter of John Lambert, 10 James-road, Blaengarw, tipper. In Bankruptcy.—Illness and heavy family to keep were the causes to which d ohn Trigg, collier, Nanthir-road, Blaengarw, alleged his failure, at Cardiff Bankruptcy Court on Tuesday, with liabilities £198, and deficiency 1185. The examination was closed. Social.—On Saturday afternoon all busi- ness at the Blaengarw Co-Operative Stores was suspended and the employees assembled' at the Workmen's-hall, and, together with several local ministers and other inhabitants, sat down to a good spread. The tea was succeeded by a miscellaneous concert, in which some of the chief local vocalists parti- cipated. Several of the leading members of the stores spoke on the principles of co-oper- ation. CRUSHED BY A FALL. At the Workmen's Institute, Blaengarw, on Monday afternoon, Mr. W. A. Williams (deputy coroner) held an inquiry into the circumstances attending the death of Wm. Gould, 42 King Edward-street, Blaengarw, a collier. Alderman John Thomas (miners' agent) watched the proceedings on behalf of the relatives. Evidence of identification was given by Willie Gould -imaged 19), a son of' deceased. His father, he said, was 59 years of age, and was a collier at the International Colliery. On Friday his father, a son named Francis, and witness were working together at the main heading of the Caedefaid Seam. About 8.30 a.m. his father was filling a tram, and witness was standing near by, when there was a fall from the side, and his father was partly under it. Witness went to him and at the same time shouted for help. He suc- ceeded in freeing deceased, who was uncon- scious. He appeared to be very badly in- jured. and died on the way to the pit bottom. By Mr. R. G. M. Pritchard (inspector of mines) They had been pulling down the side that morning—from the middle of the road. There were about six posts under the part that came down. No one had been working at the place during the night. There was no shortage of timber in fact, there were I some spare posts at the place. His father had tried the side in the morning. Francis James Gould, 2"0 Waun Bant, collier, another son of deceased, said he came on the scene almost immediately after the accident, and assisted the previous witness in liberating his father from the fall. He was then alive, but died soon afterwards. Witness was working near the place. By Mr. Pritchard: He was in the place where the accident occurred at 7.30 that morning, and tried the side which came down. It then appeared all right. His father told him that he was going to put up some timber later on, but witness did not see any necessity for double timbering. The supply of timber was good. David Morris Evans, residing at 08 Miriam-street, Blaengarw, a haulier, deposed -that he saw the accident, and gave a similar description to that of the first witness. This was all the evidence, and the jury re- turned a verdict of "Accidental Death."
