ACCIDENTS AND FATUITIES.
Mr Carew held an inquest yesterday afternoon on the body o! Evelyn Ruth Power; an infant boarded out at Pine Hill. The evidence showed that the child had been attended by a medical man, and died of tubercular meningitis. At the inqueßt on Robertson, the victim of tho bicycle accident at Wellington on Saturday, a verdict of " Accidental death" was returned. The jury added a rider balling the attention of the Telegrapn Department to the dangerous nature of the telegraph pole with which deceased came into collision. This pole has been responsible for thirteen bicycle accidents during tho last nine months, some of them of rather a serious nature. The pole is situated on a nasty curve at the foot of the hill in a direct line with the road. ■"
