SHOOTING ACCIDENT AT MOMBA Word reached town on Tuesday evening that a young man named Jack Stanley, nephew of Mr Joseph Timms, owner of Momba station, had that day shot himself dead at the homestead. The Coroner (Mr F. W. Smith) went out Wednesday, and held an inquiry the same evening. From the evidence it appears the deceased went to his room soon after the dinner hour, and it is supposed that, as he was to leave shortly on a visit to his parents in Melbourne, he was putting his belongings together
and while handling a revolver it exploded, the bullet entering his head, no doubt death being instantaneous. He was in his 18th year, and was well-liked on the station. The coroner's verdict was to the effect that the deceased died from a bullet wound accidentally inflicted by himself. The body was interred in the station cemetery near the homestead, Mr W.
Robbins, undertaker from Wilcannia, carrying out funeral arrangements.
