FATAL ACCIDENTS AT WELLINGTON.

(by telegraph. ) Wellington, May 24

A fatal accident occurred at the Upper Hutt this afternoon. A man named George Gilchrist- was shot dead by another man who was practising rifle shooting. An inquest will be held to-morrow. A man named William Kemp, a sawmill hand, was killed on the Wellington - Greytown railway on Saturday. It appears the man was intoxicated, and sitting asleep on the platform of the Silverstream station. The steps of a first-class carriage caught his legs, and throwing him under the wheels, both legs were broken, and the body fearfully mangled. No blame is attached to the driver of the engine.
