SOUTHAMPTON MAN KILLED

The motor-car in which Mr. Ernest Hall, the head of the well-known firm of auctioneers, Messrs. Hall, Pain and Foster, of Portsmouth, Fareham, and Petersfield, was riding in Southampton on Tuesday, was concerned in a fatal accident.

Mr. Hall was being driven by his chauffeur to the Southampton County Ground, where Hampshire were playing Kent. He is the father of P. M. Hall, the Hampshire amateur.

The car was travelling down The Avenue when Mr. Albert Haines, of Grosvenor Road, Portswood, apparently went to cross the road. He came into collision with the car and was killed. Haines was 58 years of age, married, and had one son aged 16 years.
