BUFFERS.
A RAILWAY MAN KILLED.
FATHER OF EIGHT.
About one o'clock on Friday afternoon
the permanent way between the pas-
senger and goods platforms on the Wo-
donga Railway Station was the scene of a
shocking accident which within half-an-
hour ,was unhappily, attended with the
death of the unfortunate victim.
George Sutton —probably the best
known and most highly respected man
on the permanent way staff—was, with
Dan. Cullen, S. Benson, and W. Jenvey,
engaged during the forenoon at work
near the Murray, and shortly before one
day trollied to the station. Friday was
pay day, and on arrival at the goods
shed, Cullen, who was acting ganger,
draw their wages. On No. 3 line—the
line next the goods shed —were two lots
of tracks–one of 14, the other a 8—with
about 4 feet of space between them.
Cullen and Benson "ducked" under a
track, while Jenvey went through the
rear, followed Jenvey, and was almost
through, the trucks closed, a stifled
"Oh!" followed the crash, and with the
rebound the body of George Sutton, who
any instant before was full of life and
vigor, fell in to the 6 feet practically a
dead man.
Shunter Con. Fitzpatrick was directing
operations in the shouting up trucks at
the western end. Driver-in-charge T.
Fireman W. Parker on the foot plate. At
Ryan being on the pilot engine, with
the fatal moment the engine had
"kicked" a truck from the Barnawartha
end of the station along the line which
Sutton was crossing. The trucks came
along to quickly for poor Sutton to get
clear, and he was caught in the cruel grip
between the buffers.A
witnessed the tragedy. The victim's
companions were almost stepping on
the platform, but Jenvey was the first to
to his mates, and they picked up the
almost lifeless form of their comrade.
Mr. J. Trembath, train examiner, and
Shunter Fitzpatrick arrived simul-
taneously on the scene. Shunter Fitz-
patrick, recognising that an accident had
signalled to Driver Ryan, who
quickly ran his engine along. In the
meantime, a messenger was sent for Dr.
Schlink, who was out of town pro-
fessionally. An ambulance was proc-
cured, and the dying man was tenderly
placed on the van, for removal to
Albury, Dr O'Shaughnessy being
requisitioned on the telephone. The
dictor met the train, but the injured
man had passed beyond medical aid, so
the train which brought it across. On
the arrival of the train at Wodonga, the
of the deceased.
The melancholy duty of "breakling the
news" to Mrs Sutton was discharged by
Mrs G. Smith, her sister-in-law. Need-
prostrated by her terrible loss.
George Sutton was 40 years of ago last
September, and was the youngest son of
the late William Sutton, of Fell Timber
Creek. The farm on which the deceased
was born had passed into the latter's
possession, and was owned by him at the
time of his death. Deceased was a very
hard-working, industrious, sober men,
and evaded every spare moment of his
time to the improvement of his farm,
which had become a valuable little pro-
perty. He resided at the southern end of
the town, where evidence of his thrift ad
industry is to be found in another
highly-improved holding and comfortable
home. It is stated that deceased contem-
plated retiring from the railways service
before the end of the year, and giving his
undivided attention to his land. He was
a man of extremely careful habits, and,
minding his own affairs, never worried
himself about the concerns of other
out an accident policy in the Australian
Widows' Fund, by which his widow ad
family will benefit to the extent of £250.
There are eight children, all but the
eldest being boys, and ages their run
from 8 months to 14 years. Deceased
late sister (Mrs. Watson), who resides
in the Rutherglen district.
The sad news cast quite a gloom over
the town, and on Friday afternoon and
all day Saturday and Sunday nothing else
was spoken of in Wodonga. The sym-
pathy with the bereaved widow and
children in the loss of an ideal husband
and father was general and genuine.
Sergeant Simpson telegraphed a re-
port of the circumstances to the coroner,
at Beechworth. Mr Rowan did not
consider an inquiry necessary, and
directed that the body might be buried.
The order for burial was accordingly
signed on Saturday by Mr H. Harkin, J.P.
afternoon. Although heavy rain com-
menced to fall about an hour before the
time appointed for starting —3 p.m. —and
continued for the remainder of the after-
Noone, the the cortege was very lengthy. The
breakthrough of the Loyal Belvoir Lodge,
I.O.O.F., of which deceased was a mem-
ber, and the brethren of the Albury
Lodge, I.O.O.F., followed by about 50 of
deceased's comrades in the Victorian
hearse to the cemetery, braving the dis-
comfort of the wet afternoon. Over 60
vehicles were included in the procession,
besides several horsemen. At the grave-
side, while the rain descended, Rev. R.
M. Jennings read the service for the
dead, which was followed by a short
Oddfellows service by Br J. Whan. The
scene at the grave was most affecting.
