Towhey had time to lifive jumped and left his train, but instead he jumped back into his cab and put on every brake before he thought of himself. He died for his train, as the couple of seconds riec cssary for applying the brakes would have put him out of danger. Nichol- son had almost the same chance as Towhey. Both engines after the wreck showed all brakes applied. Both died at their pnstj rather .than jump to save themselves Thompson, although scalded- refused help until he could stand ;i no longer.

DECIDE NOT TO HOLD AN INQUEST Death of Men at the Bridge Decided as Purely Accidental Inquiries have been frequent as to whether an inquest on the deaths of Rush and Thompson who were killed yesterday would be held or not. Un- der the present law, the coroner has to take an affidavit before ordering in inquest, that he considers an in- quest is necessary because of rea- sonable suspicion of foul play, or cul- pable negligence. In the case of the leceased neither of is appar- ent. The men went into the hole voluntarily and not in the regular ckourse of their work. The boy did lot get in accidentally but- deliberate- ly climbed into the hole after being repeatedly warned away. The hole A-as not on a public highway and inyone except workmen were there as and at their own. risk. Under these circumstances the cor- nier would not be justified in orcler- '.ng an inquest. It is not known whether Rush has my friends in this country or not. He was a membeir of Court Essex, Sons of England, at Oshawa, Out. The funeral of Fred Rush will trV.e jjlace tomorrow (Thursday) evening. i'he funeral arrangements arc in oharge of the local lodge of Sons )f England.
