Anastasia Throwden deposed that the body just viewed by the jury was that of her late husband ; he was a native of Windsor, New South Wales, and was 42 years of age ; last saw deceased alive on Friday morning; he was then going to Parramatta; did not see him again till she viewed the dead body at the hospital ; deceased had been very sober during the past few weeks ; he left a family of eight children. James Chin, railway porter, deposed that he was on the Harris Park platform at the time of the accident; he had just alighted from the 7.30 train from Parramatta to Sydney; saw deceased jump off the train on to the platform after the train had started; deceased lost his footing, and fell between the moving train and the platform ; at once gave the alarm to the guard to stop the train, and then jumped on one of the cars, and cut off the air ; the train was brought to a standstill before the last carriage had left the end of the platform ; went back with the guard and the driver, and found the deceased, quite dead, with severe injuries to the head and body; deceased was lying between the rails and the platform ; the body was put into the train and taken to Granville, from whence it was removed by the first train to the Parramatta Hospital. William Clissold deposed, to receiving the alarm from Chin, and, after stopping the train, going back and finding the deceased quite dead, and mutilated by the train passing over the head and body. Thomns Throwden, brother of deceased, deposed to seeing deceased at Parramatta at about 6.30 on Friday night ; deceased was then quite sober, and had arranged to come to Parramatta on Saturday morning.
