when a quantity of clay fell from the quarry face and killed him.

Fall of overburden. Deceased had cut a narrow gullett through the overburden about
12 feet deep and was cleaning the place up, when a piece of clay fell and killed him.

A piece of clay fell from the quarry face and struck deceased who was working below.
He died 11th February.

Deceased was driving a wedge in a stone forming a ledge on the quarry face. The stone
gave way and caused him to fall with it to the bottom of the quarry. He died 11th
January, 1906.

A large stone was being pulled over the top of the quarry by means of a crane rope. The
stone broke, and deceased standing between the stone and the edge of the quarry face
the rope struck him over the legs and threw him into the quarry 50 feet below. See page 36.
Deceased fell from a quarry ledge or pathway while commencing to descend for the purpose
of going home for breakfast. He slipped at the top step and fell a distance of 30 feet.
Died two hours later.
