LOSS OF A HUSBAND AT BARRY. In the Court of Appeal (before the Master of the Rolls and Lords Justices Cozens-Hardy and Matthew), the hearing took place of an appeal under the Workmen's Compensation Act in the case of Henshaw v. the Barry Railway Company. The appeal was by the Company from the award of the County Court Judge at Pontypridd. The appellant, now the respondent, was Mrs Mary Jane Henshaw, widow of a Barry engine-driver, whose case it was understood was fought by the A.S.R.S. She claimed A300 compensation for tha loss of her husband. The death of the husband, William Henry Henshaw, took place under some. what strange circumstances on October 6th last at Tonteg Junction. Deceased was in charge of an engine drawing an empty train of trucks proceed- ing to Hafod. At the junction the train was allowed on the same line as another train of empties and pitwood going to Treforest Junction. At the time a heavy storm was raging in the Bristol Channel; the wind was blowing with hurricane force, and at the inquest it was said some of the signal lights were blown out. The electric lights in the signal cabin, however, betokening signal lights, were still in. The trains were, as stated, allowed in at the same time, and as a result the driver lost his life. The County Court Judge gave an award in favour of the widow, and the Company now appealed, and asked that the order made by his Honour on January 18th last be set aside, and an award entered for them, on the ground that the learned County Court Judge was wrong in law as to his finding that there was no evidence on which he could make the award and that he was wrong in law in holding that it was unnecessary for the applicant to give any evidence, and it was for the respondents to satisfy him, if they could, that the applicant was not entitled to the award.—The appeal was dismissed with costs.
