Death of a Well-known Citizen.
Very many Tasmanians will regret to hear of the death of John Russell, who expired, after some weeks' illness, at 6 p.m. yesterday. Until lately he had enjoyed almost robust health, but complications, arising primarily from a severe chill, set in, and his condition latterly caused grave apprehensions. Under the care of Drs. Drake and Sprott he, for a little time, rallied, but a relapse set in, and yesterday he passed away peacefully. He was well known throughout the southern part of the island, and more recently on the East Coast. Coming here with other early settlers in the good ship Ocean Chief he entered into farming and storekeeping in the Huon district, with fair success. The fast diminishing band of "Ocean Chiefs" who were wont to meet once a year to celebrate the anniversary of their landing, and among whom he was ever a genial soul, will sadly miss him. Later on he left the Huon and became host of the All Nations Hotel, which he occupied for several years. He then took up finance and land agency business, and during the mining boom entered extensively into many promising ventures, and, like others, sank thousands of pounds in building up the mining industry of Tasmania, but with poor personal requital. He was a plucky speculator in other ways, and though not always fortunate, he took his losses unrepiningly, and concerning his gains was never boastful. During the last few years, as managing partner in the firm of McMichael & Co., doing extensive business at St. Helen's and other centres on the East Coast, he found ample scope for his energies. As one of the directors of the Cascade Brewery he also found his time well filled, and in losing him shareholders will miss one whose practical experience had often safeguarded their interests. In the heyday of Tasmanian politics he was oftentimes a tower of strength to the cause he espoused. He was a native of Kilrush, County Clare, Ireland, and came to Tasmania with his parents when quite a youth. His age at time of death was 63. The funeral is announced to take place to-morrow after- noon, starting from Cromwell-street, Battery Point.

William Patrick Crick was born in South Australia. His father is an Englishman, and his mother an Irishwoman (county Clare). When Crick was a barefooted stripling, his parents took up a selection in Wentworth. He used to help his father on the selection, and an old grey-bearded farmer who called at the Catholic Press office, Sydney, recently gave a picture of Paddy shepherding sheep with a book in his pocket-"a wild, but brave lad." When Crick was about 15, the "Very Rev. W. Dunne, V.G., now Administrator of the Diocese of Bathurst, advised his parents to send him to St, Stanislau's College, Bathurst. Father Dunne recognised Crick's ability. For 18 months Paddy was a student at St. Stanislau's, and then he returned to his father's selection, where he did the ordinary work of a farmer. In his spare time he studied. Eventually he was articled to Mr. Ryan, a solicitor in Dubbo. He joined the Selectors' Association, and was the guide, philosopher, and friend of the local farmers. It was in connection with this Association that he made his first appearance in public.
A free selectors' conference was held in Sydney, and Crick, who was only 19 at the time, was one of the delegates. His ability was so conspicuous that the press were unanimous in declaring that he was the shining light of the conference. Later on his articles were assigned to Messrs. Slattery and Heydon, of Sydney. He was defeated twice before he entered Parliament - at Wellington and East Macquarie. At the time he contested Wellington be was 21. In 1899 he was elected for West Macquarie, defeating Attorney-General Wise. During his first week of Parliamentary life he received the following letter from Sir George Dibbs-
" Friday night.
My Dear Crick,-Admitted by those out- side the bar, as well as by very many of us inside, that your speech is one of the best delivered here for a very long time past, and the best by any new member for many years. Let me congratulate you on your first Parliamentary effort.- Yours sincerely, GEORGE R. DIBBS."
Crick got into trouble in the House once or twice, and was expelled. In those days he was the, fighting machine for the Assembly. '…

WALLAN WALLAN. -(From a correspondent.) Gradually the old landmarks of this district are passing away to that land whence no traveller returns. On this occasion I allude to the demise of Mr-M. Normoyle, who peacefully passed away on the morning of the 27th ultimo, fortified by the rites of his Holy Church. Deceased had been in declining health for the past few years, and not- withstanding the efforts of his medical adviser, Dr Dowling, died as above stated. Mr Normoyle was a native of Kilshanny, County Clare, Ireland. He landed in Australia in the year 1855, thus being a colonist of 46 years, most of the time being spent in Wallan, where he followed the occupations of farmer and shire contractor. Previous to settling down as a farmer, he kept the old Broadmeadows toll, where he became well known, and was a general favorite through his kindly actions to the travelling public. The takings at this toll have amounted to as much as L2528 in one year. Deceased leaves a widow and grown up family of two sons and two daughters, one of the latter being the wife of Mr P. Green, of Gobur. Much sympathy is expressed for the bereaved family. The funeral took place on Wednesday, 29th ult., a large number of vehicles and horsemen following the remains to the grave. The Rev. Father M Carter read the burial service, Mr O M'Breen having charge of the mortuary arrangements.

Amongst the recent arrivals by the R.M.S. 'Sonama' from England, via America, was the Rev. Barnard Keenan, J.P., who is well and familiarly known in Windsor, and who for many years successfully conducted the Windsor Grammar School. Mr. Keenan has been absent from the State for upwards of 15 months, and during that time has visited all the important towns in the United States and in Europe, and was received with unbounded hospitality. Mr. Keenan left by the 'Mariposa' for America in July last year, and had the honor of dining at White House with the late President McKinley. While in New York he was the guest of Sir Roderick Cameron. In Denver city he was entertained by the Hon. J. Johnston, the .Mayor. In Jersey City he was hospitably received, and was driven to see all the sights by Colonel Stevens. On arrival in Ireland he was specially invited to dine with the Lord Mayor of Dublin, the Right Hon. J. Pile. In Ireland he spent upwards of four months, and during the principal portion of that time he was the guest of the Hon. Mayor Studdard, of Kilkishaw, county Clare. After a pleasant sojourn in Ireland he went across to England, where he experienced a most enjoyable time, He spent a week with Lord and Lady Carrington at their beautiful castle residence, High Wycombe. Whilst, there he attended many functions with them, including the large review at Wycombe Park, which has been referred to in a previous issue. With Lord Carrington he attended at Windsor Castle, and was presented to her present Majesty the Queen. He was also introduced by Lord Carrington to Earl Roberts. After leaving High Wycombe he was the guest of Lord and Lady Jersey. He also spent a pleasant time as the guest of Sir Daniel and Lady Cooper, Sir Edward Hutton and Sir Henry Norman. He spent three days at the residence of the Right Hon. Sir John Broderick, Minister for War. He was entertained by the Right Hon. Joseph Chamberlain, and the Lord Mayor of London, and had a dinner given in his honor by the American Ambassador, at which were present the Hon, Henry Copeland, Agent General and many leading Australians in 'the old Country. He returned home by the s.s Sonama, and became such a favorite as chairman of the Entertainment Committee, that at the conclusion of the voyage, he was presented by Senator Laud, of the American Senate (who was also a passenger) on behalf of his fellow passengers with an illuminated address. Altogether the Rev. Mr. Keenan has had an enjoyable trip, and speaks in glowing terms of the hospitable way in which Australians are received and entertained abroad.

By the English mail, which arrived yesterday morning, I received a very interesting letter from Mr. Pat Talty, who, with his better half, is at pre- sent on a trip to his native land. The letter is dated 12th November, and is written from Spanish Town, Milltown-Mal bay, County Clare, Ireland. It reads : " Just a line to let you know we are in the land of the living. We have been on the war path ever since we left Brisbane until about a fortnight ago. I have taken a lodge here for the winter. I have been to most of the big race, meetings in England and Ireland, and have had fairly good luck. The last meeting was at Macroom, when I picked every winner, but I could not get a decent bet. The biggest wager I could get was £10 to £5. They have some fine horses both in England and Ireland, but they cannot teach us anything in racing; in fact, we can teach them. The Dublin horse show was the best thing I have ever seen. I never thought there were such fine horses in the 'world as I saw there. The Irish hunters are magnificent animals. We have booked to return by the Omrah, which is timed to leave on 1st February, so that all going well we hope to be in Brisbane about April next. The genial Hibernian concludes his letter with seasonable greetings to all his friends in Queensland, and wishes to be remembered to Billy Mooney, Abe Barrington, and all the boys."

A HALE OLD DAME. The "Camperdown Chronicle" in referring to old age pension applicants in that district says: "One of the most interesting of the group was a little old lady, of 102 years of age, named Mrs. Annie Hehir. She was born in County Clare, Ireland, in 1790, and has thus lived in three centuries. There can be no question of her constitution, as she has lived in Mortlake for 40 years, and has had only two day's sickness in that time, and one can quite believe the in formation of her great-granddaughter. She is very deaf, observed the lady, but can walk about more actively than a great many at sixty, can still see fairly well, and is able to read without spectacles. She was quite an old lady when she left the town of her birth 40 years ago. Dr. Sweetman, of Mortlake, who takes a great interest in the old lady, says it would not surprise him if she lived to see 120 years. Mrs. Hehir is grandmother of Mr. J. West, of Minyip.

LONDON, March 10.
A remarkable outrage is reported from Kilrush, a town in the county Clare, Ire land. Some mounted men, with masked faces, rode up to the house of a Mrs. M'Inerney, near the town, and fired their revolvers through the windows, fortunately without injuring anyone. A police patrol arrived on the scene in time to see the "moonlighters" disappearing. The officers demanded their surrender, and fired shots after them but the miscreants escaped in the darkness.
Inquiries made by the police induced them to arrest two young farmers, named Eustace and Crowley respectively, as being the principals in the outrage.
The origin of the vendetta against Mrs. M'Inerney is supposed to be the fact that she purchased some hay from a farmer named Cunningham, who had been censured by the United Irish League for occupying an evicted tenant's farm.

Death of Sir Daniel Cooper.
(See Portrait on this page.)
By cable, on June 6, from our London correspondent, we learnt of the death of Sir Daniel Cooper.
Sir Daniel Cooper, Bart., G.C.M.G., was born at Bolton-le-Moors, Lancashire, on July 1, 1821, and was, therefore, very nearly 81 years of age at the time of his death. His father, Mr. Thomas Cooper, came to Australia when the son was very young, and Daniel Cooper, until he was 14 years of age, was educated at one of the best schools which the colony at that time afforded. In 1835 he returned to England to finish his scholastic training, and studied for four years at the University College, London. In 1841 he took up a position in a mercantile house at Havre, but did not remain there long. Returning to England, he entered the employment of his uncle, a merchant. At this time, however, Mr. Cooper's health was very uncertain, and, after remaining in England a little over a year longer, he sailed for Sydney again in 1843, and became interested in the firm of Holt and Cooper, which subsequently, in 1852, became D. Cooper and Company, one of the most extensive mercantile houses in Australia.
In 1846, three years after his return to the colony.Mr. Cooper married Miss Elizabeth Hill In 1847 he was appointed a director of the Bank of New South Wales, of which he became president in 1855, an office which he resigned in 1861. In 1849 he was elected to the Legislative Council, then the only legislative body in the colony, and in 1853 he was re-elected to that body. Two years afterwards the act was passed which gave the colony a constitution modelled on that of the British Parliament, and Mr. Cooper became the first Speaker of the new Parliament. He filled the Speaker's chair of the Legislative Assembly from May 22, 1856, to January 31, 1860, having been twice re-elected-on March 23, 1858, and August 31, 1859. In 1853 he received the honor of Knighthood.
His resignation of the office of Speaker was due to ill-health, and the same cause pre vented him from accepting an invitation on the defeat of the Forster Government to form a new Ministry. In 1861 he returned to England, and in 1863 was made a baronet. From that time until the time of his death Sir Daniel, who still held large interests in New South Wales, took a prominent part in every movement for the advancement and welfare of the Australian colonies.
In October, 1880, for his services in connection with the Sydney Exhibition, he was created C.M.G., and in 1888 was raised to Grand Cross of the same Order-G.C.M.G. The honors conferred upon the deceased gentleman in earlier life were mainly due to the spirited course of action which he took in subscribing towards the relief of sufferers by the Crimean war and the Lancashire cotton famine. During the Crimean war he exerted himself in raising subscriptions for the widows and orphans of those who had fallen in battle, and himself sub scribed £1000, and £500 per annum during the continuance of the war.
At the great exhibitions held in Europe and America during the last generation, Sir Daniel was frequently the representative of New South Wales. During his time of residence in England, too, he did much to advance the wool industry, by exerting himself to put the warehousing and sale of wool upon a better and more equitable basis.
Sir Daniel acted as Agent-General for New South Wales from the time of the late Sir Saul Samuel's death, in 1897, until 1899.
Sir Daniel leaves issue surviving two sons and four daughters. The eldest son, Mr. Daniel Cooper, who succeeds to the Baronetcy, was born November 15, 1848; and married, in 1886, Harriet, daughter of Sir James Grant-Suttie, Baronet, and sister of Viscountess Dalrymple, and-has issue two daughters. He resides chiefly at Warren Tower, Newmarket. He has been a member of the English Jockey Club since 1894, and his colors, orange and white hoops, with white cap, are very popular on all old country racecourses. He is also a member of the Carlton, Marlborough, and Turf Clubs. The second son, Mr. William Charles Cooper, was born in 1851, and married, in 1876, Alice Helen, daughter of the late Mr. George Hill, of Surry Hills, and has issue three sons, viz., Lieu tenant William George Daniel Cooper, of the 7th Hussars; Lieutenant Arthur Hamilton Cooper, of the 1st Dragoons; and Gerald Melbourne Cooper; and one daughter. He is a member of the St. James's and Windham Clubs. Sir Daniel's eldest daughter, Ellen Sophia, is unmarried; the second, Alice Jane, married, in 1868, Mr. Frederick Green, of "Hainault Lodge," near Chigwell, Essex, a member of the great shipping firm; the third, Mary Elizabeth, married, in 1886, Mr. William Palfrey Burrell, M.A., of Camden House-road, Kensington, formerly Consul at Port Said and Acting Judge at Alexandria; the fourth daughter, Florence Eva, married, in 1882, Mr. Hugh Arundel Trevarnon (nephew of the Earl of Strathmore and Kinghorne), from whom she obtained a divorce on her own petition in 1887, and whom she re married in July, 1900. The youngest daughter, Elizabeth Edith, married, in 1883, Mr. Henry Valentine Macnamara, J.P., D.L.., of Ennistymore and Doolin, County Clare.
The late Sir Daniel Cooper was the largest ground landlord in the metropolis, owning extensive properties in George, Market, and Pitt streets, a very large part of Surry Hills, Redfern, and Waterloo, as well as many country estates.
The Woollahra and Rose Bay Estates belong to the new Baronet.
Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal (NSW : 1851 - 1904) Monday 21 July 1902 p 2 Article
The late Constable Guilfoyle was 43 years of age, and a native of Ireland. He was born at Scariff in County Clare. Landing in Sydney in 1885, he joined the police force in November of that year, and, after being trained at the old Belmore Barracks, was sent to Bathurst where he remained for about two years. He was transferred to Redfern in 1887, and had been attached to that station (now known as No. 7) until the time of his murder. He was a very powerful, muscular man, and weighed nearly 17st. Among his comrades at Redfern and generally throughout the metropolitan police force he was exceptionally well liked. Of late the deceased constable had had a good deal of hard luck, On the day of the landing of the first Governor General (Lord Hopetoun) in Sydney, he made a plucky attempt to stop a runaway in the Domain, but was knocked over, very severely injured, and had to be taken to the hospital. His condition on that occasion incapacitated him from doing duty for five or six weeks. He also had the misfortune to recently lose three of his children, one of them being a girl 12 years old. Although he could have retired from the service on half pay, he insisted upon keeping on duty, and had lately been doing street duty in Redfern and Darlington.

Virginia, November 24.
The death is announced of Mr. M. Sheedy, an old colonist, and resident of this locality. He left his native land, county Clare, Ireland, in 1848, for the Cape of Good Hope. On arrival in that country the Kaffirs were giving the Cape Government trouble, and he joined the volunteers, who were at once marched as far as the Orange River, with the result that the Kaffirs were soon subdued. The deceased left the Cape, and took a passage for Swan River, Perth, but finding it a convict settlement he soon left for South Australia, which at that time was little spoken of. He arrived here in 1852, at the time the Victorian diggings started. With his brother Edmund, who died 20 years ago, he went to the Forest Creek and Bendigo diggings, and they were moderately successful. Upon returning they took up land in this neighborhood, which was then known as Peachey Belt, a dense scrub, which extended from St. Kilda to Smithfield, and spent some years of hard work in reclaiming and clearing a small portion of the land.

'Yes,' shouted- the witness across the court at the prisoner, 'you deliberately murdered Patrick, the best son father ever reared.' The prisoner was committed for trial.

The deceased was a son of Matthew Kelly, merchant and shipowner, Kilrush, County Clare, Ireland, and a cousin of General Kelly Kenny, of South African fame. He landed at Melbourne, Victoria, in 1856, and had, therefore, 48 years Colonial experience. During late years he was tortured by rheumatism, and was released from his sufferings by a merciful death. The old people of Dunwich appreciate with gratitude FIGARO'S sympathy with them, and are thankful that when the inevitable hour strikes for any of them, FIGARO is as ready to implore the passing tribute of a sigh for the dead one as for a lord of many lands. May the Great Creator treat Mortimer Kelly's human imperfections with the tenderness of a God of love, is the prayer of his old comrades, Why should the spirit of mortal be proud.-(CORRESPONDENT).

Commander Ernest Frederick Augustus Gaunt, C.M.G., is a son of his Honor William Henry Gaunt, judge of County Courts, Victoria, and the elder of two brothers who have greatly distinguished themselves in the Navy. He was born in 1865, educated at Melbourne Church of England Grammar School, and entered the Royal Navy as a naval cadet in January, 1878, becoming midshipman 1880, sub-lieutenant in 1884, lieutenant in 1886, and commander 1898. He was first lieutenant of the Narcissus in 1896, when Captain Lang was drowned at Grosvitcha Bay. On the occasion the Commander reported that -'the manner in which Lieutenant Gaunt handled the cutter -when the galley was lost saved five lives; with less skilful handling, the cutter would also probably have swamped. He was Commissioner for Wei-hai-wei and Administrator for Liu-kung-tao from September 1, 1898, to October 1, 1899, and, in July 1900, became Commissioner and Superintendent Transport Officer at Wei hai-Wei. His services were mentioned in General Gazalee's despatches of May, 1900, and he received the thanks of the Austrian; and German Commanders-in-Chief for his services during the Boxer outbreak. For: his work hi China during both, these, periods Commander Gaunt received frequent acknowledgments from the Admiralty, and: was rewarded with the C.M.G. June 26, 1902. On February 13 last year he -was appointed to the command of the cruiser Mohawk. In December last. Commander Gaunt went, to Fort Durbo, in the Italian Somaliland Protectorate, to inquire as to the death of an Italian officer, Lieutenant-. Commander Charles Grabau. The native chief declined to 'plaver,' and expressed his determination 'to fight it out.' In the affair, Commander Gaunt was' severely wounded, receiving a compound fracture of the thigh. The Italian Parliament thanked Commander Gaunt for his action, and King Victor Emmanuel presented him with' a silver medal. When the Mohawk was recently at Aden a number of Italian sea men rowed round the British warship, and serenaded them. Commander Gaunt married, in 1899, Louise Geraldine, daughter of the late Mr. John Martyn, of Gregans Castle, Ballyvaughan, County Clare, Ire land. Commander Guy Gaunt, who .recently distinguished himself during the operations at Samoa, in 1899, is now commander of the Vengeance, first-class cruiser, on the China station.

On Thursday, by letter from Chinchilla, says the "Warwick Argus" of the 11th instant, we received news of the death of Mr. Patrick Kelly, manager of Brunette Downs, Northern Territory. The first information received was a telegram addressed to the dead man's father at Chinchilla, to the effect that his son had been accidentally killed on a cattle camp. Subsequent information disclosed the fact that Kelly was engaged in mustering on a camp forty miles from Brunette Station and was endeavoring to cut-out a beast when his horse collided with the bullock and both were thrown to the ground. Kelly received severe internal injuries, became unconscious, and died ten hours later. The deceased was a native of County Clare, Ireland, and was in his forty-fifth year. He arrived in Warwick in 1876, and shortly after entered the service of 'the late Hon. J. D. Macansh, of Canning Downs, where he worked until 1881. On the 3rd of May of that year he accompanied Mr. T. W. Macansh, of this town, on a trip overland to Brunette Downs, then the property of the late Hon. J. D. Macansh. He was present with Mr. Macansh when the party was reported to have been murdered by the blacks; but after a considerable lapse of time, and after many search parties had been organised, the party arrived safely at Brunette. On Mr. Macansh's return Kelly remained at Brunette, and subsequently took charge of several big droving expeditions. The excellent conduct of his operations gained for him the utmost confidence of his employers, and about three years ago he succeeded Mr. J. C. Hutton in the management of the run, and he was retained in that capacity when the station passed into the hands of the pre- sent owner, Mr. White. Mr. Kelly will be remembered by many Warwick people with whom he became associated during his connection with Canning Downs, and many will sorrow at the news it is our painful duty to place before the public this morning. Mr. Kelly was unmarried. He is survived by his aged parents (who reside at Chinchilla), four brothers, and four sisters, to whom we extend our sincere sympathy, in their sad bereavement.

In the olden days, when the wives thought nothing of going into the fields to sow and reap and mow, the subject of this notice did her share of hard manual work to help her husband in the battle of life. Of late years her lot had not been a very happy one, and she had sore trials to contend with, but some of her kin, with true filial affection, remained loyal to the old lady all through her trials. The interment took place on Thursday afternoon, the remains being laid to rest in the R. C. Cemetery. Rev. Father McDonnell performed the last rites, and Mr. T. Primrose was the undertaker.

An Irish family of the name of O'Keefe are reported to have proved their claim to a fortune of £2,300,000, writes the Chicago correspondent of the London "Express." The story of how the fortune was made is a most romantic one. In 1804 Dennis O'Keefe, of Kilkee. County Clare, left his Irish home and shipped as a sailor. He wandered over the, world, went through many thrilling adventures, and finally decided to settle in Texas. Nobody knows what business he pursued there, but before his death he acquired thousands of acres of land, which he must have bought for a mere song. Many years after Dennis O'Keefe's death oil was discovered on his property in Texas, and from almost worthless land it sprang into property of priceless value. Search was made far and wide for O'Keefe's relatives, but it was not until a few months ago that a lawyer named Hildreth discovered a woman who is said to be one of the three heirs to the estate. She was Mrs. Maria O'Keefe Fennell, of Kilkee. Ireland, who had almost forgotten Dennis O'Keefe's existence. Mrs. Fennell immediately notified her two brothers, who are joint heirs to the fortune. One is Patrick McGuire O'Keefe, who also lives in Ireland, and the other Thomas O'Keefe, who was formerly a foreman platelayer on the Long Island railway, and is now living on a six acre farm near Woodlawn, Long Island. As soon as he was notified of his good fortune, Thomas O'Keefe had the matter investigated by lawyers, who declared that the unexpected windfall was genuine. O'Keefe is a married man with seven children, and he and his wife were amazed when the letter came telling them they were millionaires. His income, which was only a modest £85 a year, will now be increased to no less than £30,000.

The Queenslander (Brisbane, Qld. : 1866 - 1939) Saturday 2 December 1905 p 29 ArticleA RETIRED POLICE OFFICER.
Sub-inspector Martin Breene, who recently retired from the Queensland Police, after thirty-seven years' service, is a native of county Clare, Ireland. He landed in Brisbane by the ship Sunday in May, 1865; thence he went to Ipswich, worked on the railway and in other capacities up to 1868, when he joined the Police Force at Brisbane as constable. He was appointed to Roma, and travelled with Superintendent Browne, until 1875, all over Queensland. In that year he was promoted to the rank of acting sergeant, and was transferred from Bowen to Mackay, where he did excellent work while in charge of that station, resulting in his promotion to the rank of sergeant in 1878, with transfer to Georgetown. He was in charge at Thornborough in 1879, and Herberton in 1882, and was transferred to Townsville in 1886. In 1888 he was promoted to senior sergeant in charge of Townsville station. He was sent to Torrens Creek in 1891 after the throats of five head of Mr. Jardine's horses had been cut. The shearers' strike being in full swing, he was instrumental in arresting two unionists for setting fire to grass at Lamnermoor, and the man he followed, if alive to-day, does not forget the fright he got from the sergeant's bullet, which, as he thought, grazed his scalp. Both unionists were sentenced to seven years each. This practically put an end to the 1891 strike, and in 1891, a further strike occurring at Hughenden, he was transferred there, and promoted to the rank of acting sub-inspector. In 1895 he was transferred to Thargomindah, and while there was successful in getting rid of a gang of forgers, sheep, cattle, and horse stealers. In 1900 he was sent back to Townsville, and from there to the C.I. Branch, Brisbane, in 1902, and thence to Roma in 1903 to replace Acting Inspector Fitzgerald. In February, 1904, he was promoted to sub-inspector, but, owing to retrenchment, did not receive the salary appertaining to the rank. In July, 1905, he was transferred to charge of Ipswich and stations in the West Moreton sub-district; but having met with an injury to his knee while at Thargomindah, which went against him at Ipswich, he was compelled to tender his resignation, and retire on an allowance of £250, after a service of thirty-seven years and seven or eight months. Mr. Breene has had to do with several difficult cases in Townsville, in which sentences ranging from six months to five years were imposed. He was also successful in bringing to justice three murderers at Ayr, and two at Ingham, and recently took part in clearing up a case of murder at Lowood.

The coroner (Mr. T. Hall, J.P.) held an inquiry, at the Courthouse to-day into the cause of the death of John Dillon, who was found dead in his hut at the rear of Harding's boarding house, Crystal-street, on Christmas morning.
John Harding said deceased boarded with him, and slept in a hut of his own; witness saw deceased several times during the past week; deceased was drinking all through last week and did not eat regularly; he had been , boarding with witness for eight or nine years; witness believed deceased had a married sister in Victoria; deceased was a regular drinker but did not often go "on a spree" such as the one which apparently caused his death; he last saw him on Friday when he was under the influence of drink.
Joseph Mason, laborer, said he met deceased on the afternoon of Xmas Eve in his room; deceased had been drinking heavily, and was not in a fit state to go into the street, so witness took him drink-English ale and whisky ; he left deceased on Xmas Eve in his hut, he thought about mid - night; he also had been drinking when he left deceased he (Dillon) was talking about old times and appeared to be well; witness had known him for about 11 years, and had been friendly with him during that period; when he went to deceased's hut the next morning to get him a drink, deceased was lying on his side; he thought de ceased was pretending sleep, but when he couldn't get an answer from him a creepy feeling came over him (witness), and he then thought he was dead; witness informed the police; deceased was a single man, and witness thought he was born in County Clare, Ireland.
Dr. Bartley, Government medical officer, said there were several empty whisky and beer bottles lying about Dillon's room when he visited it; from information given him and from the appearance of the body deceased possibly died from alcoholism, accelerated by the excessive heat of the previous day or two.
James Attrill and Senior-constable Murray also gave evidence. Attrill said he looked into deceased's hut at about 11 o'clock on Xmas Eve and saw deceased lying as if asleep.
The coroner returned a verdict that deceased died from the effects of alcohol, accelerated by the heat.

An Old and Respected Resident
Last Saturday afternoon Mrs Patrick Doohan, Senr., an old and respected resident, expired at the residence of one of her daughters, Mrs. Foster, of Redbournberry. The deceased was 71 years of age at the time of her demise, and her husband had predeceased her some 16 years ago. For some years the late Mrs Doohan had suffered from an internal complaint, which- she bore with exemplary Christian fortitude, but, latterly, it-was evident to her bereaved relatives that the inevitable end was approaching, and the deceased passed peacefully away about 2.30 p.m. on Saturday last. The deceased, who was a native of County Clare, Ireland, came out to this State some 48 years ago, and during her lengthy residence in this district was noted for her genuine sympathy with the afflicted and distressed, while she was a devoted attendant of the Catholic Church, when her health permitted her. She was a most affectionate mother, and the grief of her bereaved children remains as a silent tribute to her maternal care, for they realise with the poet that -. . "A mother is a mother still, Tho holiest thing alive." Deceased's many friends, some of long-standing, regret her loss, and there is general sympathy evinced for the bereaved relatives. Deceased leaves six sons and three daughters (living) to lament the loss, of an affectionate mother, while one son and two daughters died some time ago. Of the six sons, Messrs P. and M. Doohan reside in Singleton; John Doohan, Tamworth; Denis Doohan, Cobar; Thomas Doohan, Sydney; and James Doohan, Ballina; while the daughters living are Mesdames W. Foster, Single ton; M.P. Ryan, Singleton; and F. Bakewell, Scone. The funeral, which took place yesterday afternoon, was largely attended by many old residents and friends of the deceased and family, the remains being interred in the Catholic cemetery; the Rev. Father Kilgallin conducting the funeral service.

Melbourne, March 21.
Mr. John Lynch, one of the pioneers of Ballarat, and the last of the captains who fought under Peter Lalor at the Eureka Stockade, died to-day at his residence at Smythdale. The deceased, who was a native of County Clare, was 80 years of age. He was a member of one of the oldest and most influential families in the South of Ireland, and arrived in Victoria in 1852. He worked as a digger at Bendigo for some time, but the prospects of Ballarat proved more alluring, and he finally set out for Eureka. In the fight at the stockade be- tween the British soldiers, and the diggers he was in command of the Pikemen, and was among those who were subsequently arrested for resisting the supremacy of the law, but he was not included among the thirteen insurgents who were conveyed to Melbourne to stand their trial for high treason on the conclusion of peace. With the termination of the State trials Mr. Lynch, who was a first-class mathematician, and a classical scholar, adopted the profession of a surveyor, and on settling in the Smythesdale district, he engaged largely in the work of surveying the surrounding gold- fields. For nearly 50 years he acted as Government surveyor in the district, and was professionally associated with the Grand Trunk, the Reform, and other well known mining properties. The deceased was a fluent speaker, and on the occasion of public gatherings in connection with the Eureka Stockade his utterances were always heard with great interest, he was a widower, and left a family of four sons and one daughter. His sons are Captain Lynch (chairman of the Country Fire Brigades Board), Dr. Peter Lynch (of Carlton), Dr. Maurice Lynch, and Mr. Arthur Lynch, M.A., M.B., who fought with the Boers against the British in the South African campaign, and was subsequently elected to the British House of Commons by an Irish constituency. The deceased some years ago sustained a severe bereavement by the death of seven of his children from diarrhera within a few days.
The death occurred to-day of another pioneer of Ballarat, Mr. Richard Septimus Mitchell, well known as the owner of valuable Sturt-street properties. The deceased, who was 78 years of age, arrived in Victoria in 1852. He was a native of Northumberland.

HAMLEY BRIDGE. April 30.-In the person of Mrs. Anne Robinson, who passed over to the great majority last week, we have lost a distinguished resident and an ideal Irish lady, who lived to the age of 96. Mrs. Robinson was the widow of the late Mr. Thomas Robinson, who was in his day a somewhat remarkable man, as all old residents of Kapunda and this district will remember. Mr. Robinson died 24 years since. Mr. and Mrs. Robinson left Ennis, County Clare. Ireland, in 1857 and at first started farming on the Light, near Kapunda, where, by dint of that remarkable industry for which they were renowned, they succeeded, in spite of drought and other great difficulties, fairly well. In a few years they removed to a larger farm near Hamley Bridge. They had six sons and four daughters, of whom all are living, except one daughter— the late Mrs. John Mclnerney.

Besides Empire and State builders there are those who fill the less distinguished, but certainly not less useful, part of district builders, and among the latter the late Mr. John Sexton (whose death was recorded in Monday's paper) had well performed his part. Mr. Sexton, who was born near Ennis, County Clare, Ireland, emigrated to Australia in 1856, landing in South Australia, where he first engaged in farming work and harvesting the wheat crops in the Kapunda district. Those were palmy days for alluvial mining in Victoria and Bendigo and Ballarat were names that acted like lodestones to attract people from every part of the globe. He soon communicated with his brothers and sisters left in the old land, with the offer to provide them the means to come out also, if they wanted to do so. This led to his brothers Patrick and Thomas (now well known Lismore citizens) with their two sisters, also emigrating and rejoining their brother in Melbourne, when they landed on January 1, 1858, and were met there by him. The sisters having obtained employment, the brothers went to Geelong, and thence to Ballarat, where the newly-arrived brothers having secured work Mr. John Sexton returned to his mates at Bendigo, where he was engaged mining. The three brothers, some time afterwards, in company, went over to New Zealand, where they engaged in mining with a fair amount of success. In 1863 they came to New South Wales, and visited the Clarence, where they intended giving the Cung- lebung field a trial, but good news having come from New Zealand of a field they had visited, they went back there in 1864, making their way to the Buller River field, and put in about two years mining on New Zealand gold fields. There must even then have been some attraction in these districts for the brothers returned to the Clarence, visiting in turn the diggings at Pretty Gully, Tooloom, McLeod's Creek, and Timbarra. Subsequently, after searching on the Lower Clarence for suitable land for a home, Mr. John Sexton, who had married some time previously, selected in July, 1866, the land at Gundurimba, which has since been his home. His brother, Mr. Thomas Sexton, selected alongside him, and Mr. P. Sexton, who had gone into contracting work in other parts of the district, subsequently made his home at Goonellabah. The brothers conjointly and on their own account then entered into road contracting, and some of the earliest and most important works of this character were carried out by them. Mr. John Sexton, for example, made the large and extensive cutting for the approach to the Lismore Public Wharf, and was wont to relate that for filling up Molesworth-st. opposite the Post Office the Lismore Council was fairly indebted to him £100. He made the road along Uralha-street to the Postman's Ridge, a veritable Chat Moss in those days, which had no bottom, and he had recourse to the branches of trees to get a foundation for filling. The Monaltrie swamp was another of his contracts, and another long and difficult work was the road to Ballina across the swamps between Emigrant and Fishery Creeks. The traveller or contractor to-day has no idea of the difficulties which confronted the road contractor in those days, and it needed a man of indomitable energy and fertility of resources to carry on work under conditions that then existed, when rations even were only obtained with much difficulty. To carry out this work Mr. Sexton, aided by his brother Patrick designed a tramway, with truck, for carrying on the earth work where horses could not stand, let alone pull a load. Tea-tree branches was again successfully used for a foundation, and the work successfully completed. Extensive works were also carried on up Wilson's Creek and in other parts of the district, and it is an interesting fact that numbers of later successful contractors got their training under Mr. John Sexton. Among these may be mentioned Messrs. M. Donoghue, P. and T. Wilson, Denis Mahoney, and John Finn, most, if not all, of whom assembled around his grave on Monday to pay their last tribute of respect to one who had been not only a good "boss," but a real good friend as well. Over a long series of years, during which he had employed many hundreds of men, he always paid the best wages going, and in no single instance had one of his men ever occasion to summon him for claim or dispute of wages. When cutting prices came into vogue for road work he abandoned it, holding that unless prices would admit of good wages, good work could not be done, and at the same time meet other engagements. Mr. Sexton grew sugar-cane extensively for some years, and then when dairying made its great expansion here he became a supplier to the N.S.W. Creamery Butter Company. Many will remember his terse, pithy speech at the opening of the South Lismore creamery, when he told his hearers that the mine of golden butter was a more lasting and surer one than the golden claims of Ballarat and Bendigo, of which he had seen the richest and witnessed them being worked out. "I tell you," he said, the golden butter mines will never be worked out." He was a man possessed of indomitable energy and a full measure of the characteristic generosity of his countrymen, and fortunate is the country that has men like him in its early history to push on the wheels of progress. His age, we are told, was 72, and up till a short time ago he had enjoyed excellent health, and up till the last he believed that his health was improving. Of the family who emigrated nearly fifty years ago his death is the first inroad, and his sister, Mrs. Griffin, of Bendigo, the eldest of the family, visited her relatives here only a couple of months ago. His other sister is Mrs. P. McNamarra, of South Lismore. He leaves a widow and grown up family of four sons and four daughters, all of whom were present when the last summons came. The funeral on Monday afternoon formed a very large procession, of which 100 vehicles formed part, making it one of the longest ever seen here, and had the news of the death been more widely known many more would have been present. We tender our sincere sympathy to the widow and relatives in their bereavement, and we feel that we lose one whose hearty greeting was always of a cheering nature. The interment took place in the Roman Catholic Cemetery, Mr. B. Klein conducting the funeral.

We deeply regret to chronicle the passing away of one of the most esteemed citizens of Toowoomba, Alderman Edmund Boland, which sad event took place at his residence, "Boland Park,'' Drayton-road, about half-past nine o'clock last evening, says the "Toowoomba Crhronicle" of the 8th instant. The deceased gentleman had not been in good health for some time, and about two months, ago his life was despaired of. It was his intention to proceed to Sydney to see his gifted daughter. Miss Eugenie Boland, Toowoomba's great contralto, take her departure for England; but sudden illness intervened. For some weeks he hovered between life and death; but the assiduous attentions of his medical adviser, Dr. Freshney aided by the most careful nursing of his relatives, pulled him through the ordeal. He was then staying with his daughter, Mrs. W. Clark, at their then resident in Herries street West, and after he became convalescent some weeks ago, he was removed to his own residence at "Boland Park." His condition was so satisfactory then that the most sanguine hopes were entertained of his early restoration to his usual vigorous state of health. Last week, however, he suffered a sudden relapse, and sank rapidly day by day, passing away quietly last night at the hour stated.
Mr. Boland was a native of County Clare, Ireland, where he was born in 1840, so that he was in his sixty-sixth year at the time of his death. He came to Queensland at the age of fourteen years and mainly resided in this district ever after. His father, the late Mr. J. E. Boland, was for many years one of the most respected citizens of Drayton, and when that town was a municipality Mr. Boland, senr., occupied the Mayoral chair on two occasions, one being at the time of Governor Black all's visit. His son, Mr. Edmund Boland, entered municipal life in Toowoomba in 1886, on which occasion he was elected as an alderman of the Toowoomba Municipal Council. He soon won his spurs as an alderman, and three years later (1889) he was unanimously elected Mayor of Toowoomba in succession to the late Mr. T. Trevethan. He made a most capable chief magistrate. For a few years he then retired from municipal life, but re-entered the Council in 1895, and in 1897, the late Queen's Jubilee year, He was for the second time elected Mayor of Toowoomba. He fulfilled his duties as Mayor that year in a manner worthy of the best municipal traditions of Toowoomba. After a short interregnum, he again came forward for the West Ward, which he represented until the day of his death. He was a most painstaking, energetic alderman, one who always had the courage of his opinions, and who never hesitated lo express them.
Mr. Boland was a most successful business man in Toowoomba. For many years he was identified with the butchering business in partnership with Mr. John M'Hugh, with his sons, and by himself. He had a large interest in the town and district, and in 1893 made an excellent fight for the representation of Cambooya in the Legislative Assembly. He was a magistrate of the territory, for many years. He was prominently identified with every movement having for its object the welfare of Toowoomba and the Darling Downs, and was in every respect one of our most valued and useful citizens. By his death Toowoomba loses a good man in every respect. The deceased has left a widow, five sons, and two daughters. The daughters are Mrs. W. Clark, of Toowoomba, and Miss Eugenie Boland, who is now in London. The sons are Messrs. D. J. Boland (Toowoomba). R. C. Boland (the well-known Rockhampton solicitor), J. M. Boland (Rockhampton), Captain S. B. Boland, D..S.O. (Brisbane), and Frank and Redmond Boland (Toowoomba). He has left a number of grandchildren. It is noteworthy of mention that his aged mother, who is now over ninety years of age, is still hale and hearty, and residing in our midst. The sorrowing relatives will have the sympathy of all today in their hour of sorrow.

FIRE.-A fire broke out on Saturday evening in a small cottage occupied by an old lady named Mrs. Parsons, situated at the rear of Hill and Co.'s butcher shop. It appears that the occupant was about to retire for the night, and. with, a lighted candle in her hand was searching for some matches. She placed the candle on a sideboard and a piece of drapery caught alight, the flames soon spreading to the window curtains. While attempting to put the flames out, Mrs. Parsons' clothes caught fire, and had it not been for Mr Geo. Simmons, who noticed smoke issuing from the cottage and carried Mrs Parsons out, the result would have been serious. Messrs. Fowles and Ross extinguished the fire and after the rubbish had been cleared, Mrs. Parsons retired. The following morning Mrs. Fowles noticed a queer look about the old lady, and being unable to get her to speak summoned medical assistance. It was then ascertained that Mrs. Parsons had been stricken with paralysis as a result of the shock of the-previous night. She never regained consciousness and died on Monday morning. Her age was 75. The funeral took place yesterday, the arrangements being carried out by Mr. C. F. Layton. Deceased was born in County Clare, Ireland in June, 1831. She sailed for Western Australia in the ship Subrina, landing at Fremantle in 1852, and came on to-Albany a few days later. She had resided here ever since, being a resident of Albany for 54 years.
