DEATH OF MR. WILLIAM KAY.—Very general surprise and widespread regret will be felt at the announcement published in our obituary column of the death of Mr. William Kay, J.P. Mr. Kay was inthe city on Tuesday, and intended to take his place at a Board meeting, but feeling very ill he called upon his medical adviser, Dr. Gardner, who forbade him to attend to any business, and advised him to go home at once. The doctor's examination showed him that the action of the heart was failing. Mr. Kay immediately went home, and inthe evening his condition seemed to have somewhat improved. On Wednesday morning, however, symptoms set in which pointed to the clotting of the blood inthe large vessel leading to the lungs, and death gradually approached, taking place at 4 p.m. Mr. Kay, who was in his sixtieth year, was a native of Newcastle-on-Tyne. He arrivedinthecolony by the barque Sea Queen on March 25, 1850, and with the exception of one visit to England and occasional trips to the other colonies he spent the whole of his life after that date in South Australia. For some years Mr. Kay was inthe land office of Mr. George Green who is now residing in England. He was then with the firm of Sampson, Wicksteed, & Co., auctioneers, and afterwards joined a new firm which was established under the name of Townsend, Bottine, & Kay. As will be remembered by most of our readers, the other members of this prominent auctioneering business were the late Mr. William Townsend, M.P., and Mr. F. J. Bottine, who now occupies the mart in which the business of the old firm was carried on. Mr. Kay retired from the partnership in 1869, having devoted his great energy and business ability to its interests for a period of ten years. He had a very brief experience of active political life. He was returned for East Adelaide in 1875, and sat during, the currency of the Parliament which was then elected. It is no secret in political circles that he was more than once offered a place inthe Ministry, and that he had the opportunity of taking the position of Treasurer, for which his financial knowledge and general business talents eminently fitted him. He refused, however, to accept Ministerial work, and on the expiry of his term of election for East Adelaide he definitely and finally retired from politics. During the three years, however, in which he occupied a seat inthe Assembly Mr. Kay showed a mastery of public business and power as a debater which made it a matter of general regret that he did not seek re-election. He was a man of strong convictions, and a singularly felicitous speaker, and his keen intellect and wide range of information made him a delightful companion to those like-minded with himself. In 1878 he paid a brief visit to England, but was only absent from thecolony for a few months. The deceased gentleman occupied a very prominent position in financial circles inthe city. He was a Director of the English, Scottish, and Australian Chartered-Bank, of the Mercantile Marine Insurance Company, of the Mortgage Company of South Australia, of the Trustee, Executor, and Agency Company and of the Australian Mutual Provident Society. He also devoted much of his time to serving the public in honorary capacities. He was for some time a member of the Board of Management of the Adelaide Hospital, and he was one of the Commissioners of Public Charity in connection with the Hospital, having held that position ever since the Commission was established. He was for four years a Visiting Justice to the Dry Creek Labour Prison, and took an active part inthe management of the Deaf and Dumb and Blind Asylum from the time of its establishment. He was attorney for several absent colonists, including Sir Arthur Blyth, C.B., K.C.M.G., Agent- General for South Australia In London, Mr. Neville Blyth, Mr. Thomas Cox, and others. He was also a trustee in several Important estates. Mr. Kay was one of the founders of the Unitarian Christian Church in Wakefield-street, in which he took an active interest up to the last. He leaves a widow, four sons —Messrs. Edward, R. H., Herbert, and F. W. Kay—and four daughters. Mr. Robert Kay, the Director and Secretary of the Public Library, is his brother. It will be seen from the brief sketch which we have thus given of his life that Mr. Kay has been a valuable member of the community and that his absence will be felt in many directions. The funeral will leave the Unitarian Church at 11 o clock to-morrow morning for the West terrace Cemetery.
