Mr Pelham Jones, who sustained severe injuries by the fall of the horse Monteagle, which he was riding in the Hurdle Race at the Forbury yesterday, died at 11.20 p.m., never having recovered consciousness. An inquest was held at the Racecourse Hotel at 1 p.m. to-day, before Mr Coroner Carew and a jury of eix, of whom Mr J. D. Hutton was chosen foreman. Evidence having been given by Fred Tuggood (trainer of Monteagle, who identified the body), Dr Ogston (who attended the deceased immediately after the accident), and Trooper Brennan (who witnessed the accident), the jury returned a verdiot of "Accidentally killed." The deceased, a single man, and a farmer by occupation, lived with his sister at Makikihi.
