RAILWAY ACCIDENT.
AN OLD RESIDENT KILLED.
OTHERS INJURED.
The town was thrown into a com
motion on Saturday evening last
when it became known that a railway
accident had occurred at Stanwell
Park by which Mrs Morris, a well
known and highly respected resident
of Wollongong, had met her death,
and a number of others were in
jured. The news first came through to
Inspector Pountney, who quickly con
veyed the sad news to Mr J. Brook
Tozer, son-in-law of the deceased,
with whom the lady resided. The
news obtainable was of a very mea
gre description, and it was not
known for several hours who
the other sufferers were. The train
was running as a relief train, and
left Wollongong ahead of the ordin
ary 3.30 p.m. train. The accident was
caused by the left front wheel of the
front bogey of an American first
class car leaving the rail about fifty
chains south of the Stanwell Park
railway station. After travelling in
this manner for some distance the
whole bogey left the line, and foul
ing the points was capsized within a
chain or two of the platform. The
car contained a number of passen
gers, amongst whom were Mrs Mor
ris' two grand-children named West,
and her friend Mrs Ward, who suffer
ed the fracture of a leg, while one
of the children was badly cut. Mrs
W. S. Brown, of Parramatta, who had
been spending some weeks in Wollon
gong, with her two children, were in
the carriage, but escaped injury, as
also did Mr Garlick, of Woonona,
and Mr. L. F. White, of the Bank
of New South Wales, Wollongong.
Another passenger named Harold Al
cock, received cuts on the legs. The
injured were taken on to Sydney
after receiving first aid from some,
members of the Wollongong Fire Bri
gade, who happened to be on board
the train. The body of Mrs Morris
was brought back to Wollongong for
interment, but it was not until 10.30
p.m. that the remains arrived, and
were conveyed to the residence of Mr
Tozer. The funeral took place yester
day afternoon, the coffin being taken
into St. Michael's Church. The church
service was conducted by the Rev.
Edward Lampard, assisted by the
Rev. R. Hunter. Mr Lampard de
livered an appropriate address, in
which he expressed his deep sym
pathy with the bereaved relatives.
He referred to the very excellent char
acter borne by the deceased lady,
who had for a number of years offi
ciated as organist of the church, and
had ever taken an interest in church
work. As the procession left the
church for the cemetery, the Dead
March in Saul was played by Mr
C. A. Jarman. The deceased lady
was a daughter of the late Mr
Daniel Griflin, of Wollongong. Her
husband died several years ago, leav
ing his widow with a family of five
children, all of whom, survive her,
viz., Mr G. H. Morris, of Sydney,
Mr R. E. Morris, of Coonamble, Mrs
C. H. West, Mrs A. E. Grgnge, and
Mrs J. BrookTozer, Wollongong.
She was also a sister-in-law of Mr
Richardson, Commissioner for Rail
ways. She was of a gentle, retiring
disposition, and was very much be
loved by all who knew her. The
deepest sympathy is felt, for the be
reaved family.
