ARMIDALE, Thursday.

Last night E. M, Fisher, employed at the Lands Office, was riding a motor bicycle along Barney-street. He turned a corner and ran into a cab coming from the opposite direction. Fisher was conveyed to the hospital in an unconscious condition, the base of his skull being fractured. He never regained consciousness, and died at 2 o’clock this morning. At an inquest held to-day, before Mr. C. A. Jackes, a verdict of accidental death was returned. Deceased was 25 years old, and son of Mr. H. Fisher, licensed surveyor, in the Kempsey district.
