J NEWPORT. I Acents-Messrs Greenland and Co.. JHews&ients VFRDICT ON AN UNKNOWN SUICIDE. — A verdict of "Suicide" was returned by a Newport jury in an inquiry regarding the death of the unknown man who on Sunday week jumped from the parapet of Newport Bridge. No identification is so far forthcoming. DEATH OF A FORMER HARBOUR MASTER.- The death is announced of Mr. John William Phillips, formerly Deputy Harbour-Master of Newport. The sad event occurred at Abergavenny. Deceased's residence was in Francis-street, Newport. A CARRIAGE ON FIRE.—A curious incident attended the annual outing of the Barry Master Bakers' Association, which took place on Wednesday, to Bath. Special coaches of the Barry Railway Company conveying a party of about 150 were connected to the ordinary train leaving Cardiff at eight a.m. At Roatn Station it was perceived that something was wrong with one of the coaches, but after a delay the train proceeded. At Newport the coach was fouud to be on fire underneath, the outbreak being caused, it is believed, by the friction of the lubricating box. The passengers, numbering about 50, occupying the coach, were ordered to alight, and they were accommodated in other carriages on the train, and the coach was disconnected and transferred to a siding. After ten minutes' delay the train proceeded. The incident created some excitement amongst the passengers in the train and at the station at Newport, THE INFIRMARY.—At a meeting of the directors of the Newport Infirmary on Tuesday, Alderman Henry John Davis presiding, a letter was read from Mr. Edward Coulman, solicitor, stating that the offer which he desired to put forward on behalf of the widow, sons and daughters of the late Mr. Thomas Phillips, other than Messrs. Edward and Fred Phillips, was that they asked the chairman to accept on behalf of the Infirmary a sum of £500, to be placed towards the building fund of the new Hospital and the condition which they would wish to attach to the gift was that some tablet or brass plate should be put up in one of the wards of the new Hospital to identify the gift, and to commemorate the name of the late Mr. Thomas Phillips.—Th« gift was accepted upon the conditions named, and upon the motion of the Chairman, a cordial vote of thanks was passed to the donors for their generosity.
