DEATH DUE TO SHOCK [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Advertiser — 3 October 1914
DEATI-I DUE TO SHOCK Dr. Thomson yesterday made a post mortem examination of the body of Mr E. Sands I-Ie found the wound inflicted by the bullet was only super ficial and could not cause death, It extended across the left cheek and through the neck, but did not touch a vital part, Further examination led Dr Thorn. son to conclude that death was due to heart failure from shock, the heart being weak. The revolver was a new one worth about a pound, and was loaded in five chambers Examination by the police showed that it was defective and that it had misfired four times before the shot was fired which caused Mr Sands's death. Mr Sands was much upset owing to the fire which consumed his studio and the loss of which was not covered by insurance, the policy having been allowed to lapse It is supposed this fact, coupled with business worries, upset his mind, He was very regular in his conduct as a rule; and his absence from home the day before his death caused much concern in his household...

IMr. Ilick's speech was largely re miniscent, Ile spoke of what he had done 20 odd years ago, and lihe pointed out that thc "Advertiser" had never been included in the list of his admirers, He made a claim to credit for -the establishment of the Beach station, but the claim was contested by Mr. \V. Henderson, who ca:ne forward at tho rrttlost of the meeting, and said Mrr. Evans and himself were the original pro mnoters, Mr, -lick replied to this that he was one of the first council lors to support the project.
