A fatal accident happened yesterday jnear Waimate, to a member of a | motor-cycle party which- started from Timaru in the morning for a run to | Oamaru and back. I The party passed through Waimate,, and some of them missed the, main road, and had to get back to it by traversing a cross road that passed Knottingly Park. Among them was William George Forter, of St. Andrews-, a man about 30, an employee of J, ilvellahan, chaff-cutter, of Kingsdown. This smaller section of the party traversed the cross road, some htmdreds of yards apart. One of them, James King, of Waimate, came upon Foster j lying on the road, evdently seriously hurt. The next rider, to come up, Mr ! James, had a side chair,, and, Messrs' King and James placed the injured man in the chair and took him to the' Waimate Hospital.
