Second Fatal Accident Occurs Within Two Days.

The city's second fatal accident within two days claimed the life of ten-year-old William Doran, who died as a result of injuries received while sliding on the Goulds road in the Kilbride area at 4.30 p.m. yesterday. Son of Mr. and Mrs. William Doran, Kilbride, the lad with a companion, eight-year-old John Whelan slid down a lane opposite the Ranger Barracks into the roadway. The driver of the car, James Waddleton, Cornwall Avenue, swerved to avoid hitting the children, but the slide apparently crashed into the front wheel. He immediately rushed the lad to St. Clare's Mercy Hospital, but the boy was dead on arrival. Young Whelan was also taken to the institution where it was found that he was not seriously hurt, and he was later discharged. Neither the slide nor the car was damaged, and it would appear that the unfortunate boy's head took the full impact of the collision. Mr. Doran is employed at the Mental Hospital, and the family formerly resided at Holyrood. Police were notified of the accident immediately after it happened, and C.I.D. officers impounded the car in the course of the usual investigation which will be held into the matter.
On the previous night, at 9 p.m. Thomas Marnell, aged 6, of 9 Cuddihy Street, was fatally injured when run over by a truck on New Gower Street after he had run into the street from the sidewalk between two parked buses.

McNAMARA, Patrick
Harbour Grace Standard   January 23, 1891 (Friday)

Nothing further is known of the drowning casualty at Long Pond on Monday last. The unfortunate man, as soon as he came to the drinking place, laid his load down, took off his cap and cuffs, and knelt on the ice to get a drink. The ice broke under him, and he fell through the hole. This is supposed to have been the way in which the mishap occurred as it is the general way adopted by woodmen to get a drink. The ice was not broken up, showing that the man struggled but little. The body was taken up in 12 feet of water. The deceased's real name was Patrick McNamara, but since he came here he went by the name of O'Neill; he was a native of County Tipperary, Ireland.

A Naval Veteran Makes Anchorage.
A Naval veteran passed away yesterday, after intense suffering, borne with resignation. For many months he had realized that the end was near, but, with true British grit, held out till resistance became impossible. Yesterday the summons came. John E. Mills served his King and Country for 17 years in the Royal Navy. He played his part, and played it as a man and a sailor. True, he was unable to rejoin the service during the present war, but it is to men like him, the gallant lads of the Navy, that the safety of the British Empire is due. Born in Hampshire in England, a veteran in service, he has passed away at a comparatively early age, leaving a widow who, amidst the bitterness of separation, and the sorrow of bereavement, has the comfort of knowing that for him the days of suffering and of anguish are passed. The funeral takes place to-morrow afternoon at 3 o'clock, from his late residence 65 McFarlane Street.

Our Bell Island Budget. ...
Chapel's Cove Resident Dies.

Mrs. Mary Myers. The Grim Reaper garnered another soul into the Harvest on Thursday, the 12th inst., when Mrs. Mary Myers was called into the Great Beyond. Mrs. Myers had been ill for some time, and had secured the very best care. Priest and Doctor were in regular attendance, and the end came with Christian patience and fortitude. Deceased was 71 years of age. The remains were conveyed to St. Michael's Church on Friday morning, when Requiem Mass was celebrated by Rev. G.F. Barrett, after which they were taken by special steamer to Chapel's Cove, Harbour Main District, where interment took place. Messrs. Patrick and Stephen Myers, two well known employees of the Steel Company, are sons of the deceased, and Mrs. Martin Dwyer a daughter, and to these and to all the other relatives, we extend our sincere sympathy.

Errata. Mrs. Mary Myers.
Further particulars with regard to the late Mrs. Mary Myers, whose passing we recorded in our last Budget, have been forwarded to us from an esteemed reader, and are willingly published for the benefit of the many friends of the good lady, whose soul was gently called into the Great Unknown. Mary A. Myers was the relict of Patrick Myers of Chapel's Cove. She was a daughter of the late Denis Doyle of Harbor Main, and in addition to a daughter and two sons living on bell island, is survived by a brother, Mr. Stephen Doyle, and two sisters, Mrs. P.E. Woodford, of Harbour Main, and Mrs. Delorey, residing at New York. The remains were taken by S.S.
