The smelters were the scene of another fearful accident on Thursday morning last, when a young man named It. R. F. Sinclair, 23, was drawn into the cap of the ball mill at the
H.H. plant, and so terribly tangled that he died an hour afterwards. No One was near at hand to witness the
occurrence, but his mate, hearing his screams, had the machinery stopped, and it took about half an hour to extricate him from the machine. In ?October last H. S. Fraser was killed in the cogs of the Dwight Lloyd plant,
being badly crushed. Accidents of tills description are perhaps inseparable from the carrying on of big
The smelters have been closed down for the past three weeks, and the town is dull in consequence. It is stated on good authority, however, that the lead furnace will be in commission on Monday next, and the copper furnace
shortly after. Shipments of ore have increased so much recently that difficulty is being experienced in placing
it convenient to the furnaces.

On Thursday last t#o enquiries were held at the local Court House before, warden Tregear, into accidents that have occurred recently at the Reduction works. The first was
the case of Patrick Moroney, who was seriously injured on 22 February last. He was climbing on the bank at the back of the ore bins when he fell and broke his leg badly.
The second enquiry was into the case of the death of Robert Reotor Sinclair, which occurred on April l0th. The evidence was to the effect that Sinclair was taken from the rock breaker of the H.H. plant, on that date in a terribly mangled condition. No one could say how he got in and his mate had the machinery stopped on account of hearing his screams of distress. As usual in these enquiries the findings are nor made public but are sent to the mining mines Department.
