Herbert Binns Pilkington and John Edgar Pilkington claimed on behalf of property with a rental of 130 per year. The Conservatives objected to one of the claimants, on the ground that both of them could not claim an ownership vote on one holding. Mr. S.J.

After consultation, the left leg was amputated at the knee-joint, and the bones of the right leg were re-sected. The woman died on Tuesday afternoon from loss of blood and consequent exhaustion. Replying to Mr. Holmes, witness said the loss of blood from which deceased died resulted from the injuries she had received. He did not think she lost an ounce of blood during the operation at the hospital.
