ACCIDENTS AND FATALITIES SUDDEN DEATH IN THE PUBLIC LIBRARY.
Mr. John Williams, an old settler and well known in the city and suburbs, died suddenly in the magazine reading room in the Free Public Library this morning. Mr Williams was an old subscriber to the library, and this morning after changing a book he went into the reading-room, and was reading there when (at about 11.30 o''clock) a fellow-reader noticed him start and full back in his chair. The attendant (Mr. E. Perry) was called, and he did what he could to relieve Mr. Williams, who appeared to be in a faint. Several medical men were rung up by telephone, but none were at home. Within a short time of the attack, however, Dr. Fyffe, who was passing by, was called in, but on examination he declared life to be extinct. Deceased did not recover consciousness from the time of his attack. Mr. and Mrs. Williams some eight years ago kept the Taita Hotel, and they also were in the Kilbirnie Hotel for some time. As a young man the deceased was a member of a British cavalry regiment, which he left to emigrate in the early days to Victoria, where he married and came on to Wellington.
