A man named PATRICK HANLON, of St. Mary's, was killed at Bell Island on Friday last. He was at work on the surface in the Scotia mines operating an electric plow when some earth loosened quickly and fell on him fracturing his shoulder, breaking both legs above the knees and the left leg below the knees, while he received other internal injuries.
