Fatality at Bynea. I I MAN KILLED AT GLYNEA COLLIERY. I A distressing fatality occurred at the Glynea Colliery on Saturday morning last when John Jones, Cwmfelin Row, met with his death. It appears that the deceased went t) work, accom- panied by his brother, un Saturday morning to a spot known as the bushy vein. They were engaged for some time in filling the trains, and the deceased, after loading three trams, went for some water. He returned again, and in about ten ni-i-iiii'es Iiiter, whilst he and his brother were filling the fourth tram, a "clod" from the loof gave way and feU on deceased's hips. Two of the workmen, named Oliver and Jonah Meredith, hearing the deceased groaning, went to bis assistance and found that the "clod" was n yard square, three inches thick and one cwt. in weight. About 10 nlelock the deceased was removed in an armchair to the house, and on hie way conversed somewhat freely, and it was not believed at the time that he would snccumb to his injuries. Although his brother, Samuel Jones, Penddery, was- woiklng alongside of him, he providentially escaped any injury. Dr. John and Dr. J. L. Davies were immediately in attendance, but the deceased died about 7 o'clock on Saturday evening. At the inquest held at Baron Schoolroom on Tuesday night, only evidence of identification was called, and the inquiry was adjourned until Saturday.
