A magisterial inquiry was held at the Police Court yesterday afternoon, before Captain W.C. SARGANT, J.P., to ascertain the cause of death of a married woman names Mary Ann LINNETT, who was killed at Enoggera on the 17th January. The following evidence was taken:-- James LINNETT, the husband of the deceased, deposed that about 6 a.m. on the 17th January he left his home, near Poultney's saw-mills, Enoggera, and went away about two miles, where he was felling timber; at about 11 o'clock his wife and two children came in a spring cart with his dinner; shortly after 5 o'clock he had felled two trees, and was in the act of felling the third, when his wife whom he had told to stand in a safe place, on hearing the tree crack, looked up at it, and then ran in that direction in which the tree was falling; witness told her to stop but she was so confused that she did not know what she was doing; the tree struck her violently across the stomach and tied her to the ground; witness at first thought she was killed outright and she lay on the ground for a few minutes, but soon afterwards he heard her asking him to pull her up; he at once extricated her, when he found both of her legs broken, and from the knees to the feet they were reduced almost to a pulp; three men afterwards came and she was placed on the dray and taken to the hospital in about an hour's time. Dr. JACKSON said the deceased was received into the institution about 6p.m. on the 17th January when he found her suffering great pain, but conscious, her left thigh was severely fractured, and she was also suffering from lacerated wound of the right leg, and other injuries, beside a very severe shock; to all appearances she was dying when brought in; she gradually sank and died in about an hour; the cause of death a shock consequent upon injuries received, the manner described by the first witness at the inquiry, which was in charge of.......? constable FAY, then closed.
