      FATAL SHORT CUT.
      The Accident to Irish Harvesters.
      The inquest was opened at Medge Hall, near Doncaster, yesterday, on Michael Moran, of Kilkenny, Michael Moran, of Kilmovel, cousins, and Patrick Horan, the latter place, who were killed through being run down by the fish express at Medge Hall, London and North-Eastern main line, between Grimsby and Doncaster, Saturday night.
      It was stated that the men were taking a short cut across the railway to reach farm which they were engaged harvesters, for the potato crop.
      They stood aside for one train to pass, and did not notice the approach of the fish express. They were caught by this train and killed outright, two of their companionhaving narrow escapes.
      John Connor, a man who escaped, that he shouted to his companions to clear, but it was too late.
      The inquest was adjourned*
