Occupation of Accountant, and Pastoralist Resided Rosebank, Adelaide and Kensington
Death of a Pioneer.—Mr. George Alston, sen., one of the pioneer settlers of South Australia, died on Sunday morning at the residence of his son-in-law (Mir. G. W. Gleeson), Woodville, aged 90. The deceased gentleman (the Advertiser reports) had been 53 years in the colony, and with his son (Mr. GeorgeAlston, jun., of Blakiston) camped in a tent for twelve months on the town acre upon which the Plough and Harrow Hotel, Adelaide, now stands, before any permanent residences had been erected. 'When the lands were thrown open to selectors he took up a section at Hope Valley. He did not confine himself to agricultural pursuits, but. was intimately connected with all the early movements for' the advancement of the province.' He was the first accountant for the Bank of South Australia and was at one time secretary to the S.A. Agricultural Society. While he occupied this position he was interested with a number of other colonists in importing the first Shipment of horses into South Australia. Of late years he had retired from active life.

Early Days at Crafers A. T. Saunders, North Adelaide: "The South Australian" of October 6, 1840, recorded that DavidCrafers had opened the Norfolk Hotel at Stringy Bark Forest, now known as Crafers. On November 27, 1840, the paper announced that Crafer's Hotel was to be auctioned, and on May 14, 1841, that Crafer's Norfolk Arms, Old Tiers (as the vicinity was then known) was to be a township and market.
News Monday 03 September 1928 page 6
Crafers, in the hills, keeps green the name of Mr. DavidCrafer, who conducted a bush inn at the locality, when the hills were known as the Tiers. He took out his licence on March 22 1839, and the hotel was known as the Sawyers Arms. He was an early land-lord of the Norfolk Arms Hotel, Rundle street. Mr. Crafer came here in the ship Lord Roderick in 1838, and went into Emigration square. Mr. Thomas Hardeman says in his colonial recollections:—"Crafers made money fairiy fast. Many worked at high wages for three or four months, and then came to Crafers to knock it down. The Tiers at that time were inhabited by a very low class of men, mostly 'old hands' from New South Wales and Tasmania, and some of them arrant thieves, who robbed the teams that stayed there for one night laden with food. The writer goes on to say that Mr. Crafer was much annoyed at the existence of sly grog shanties that abounded in the hills at that time and did all he could to suppress them. That is just what a legitimate publican would do. J. W. Bull, in bis early recollections relates bow he arrived at Crafers' "Old Bush Pub" to find it in the possession of bushrangers, who had bailed up Mrs Crafers and the servants, and were treating themselves and a bar full of tiersmen to the best in the house. A party of mounted police were sent for, and arrived to find the lawbreakers helplessly drunk, and they were easily handcuffed. Two were afterwards executed.

Born Surrey England Son of John and Mary DAVIS We regret to announce the death of another of the pioneers of the colony— Mr. A. H. Davis— who expired on Monday at the Reedbeds, after a prolonged illness. Mr. Davis has been more or less identified with the history of the colony almost from its commencement, and for a long time took a leading part in public affairs. He arrived in 1838 by the Lord Goderich, Mr. Justice Gwynne and a number of well-known colonists being passengers by the same vessel. After bis arrival he commenced business as a merchant, and his talents and active habits of mind soon pointed him out as eminently qualified to take a prominent part in the affairs of the infant colony. In the various discussions that took place during the first few years of our settlement respecting the treatment of the natives, he always appeared as the warm advocate of merciful and generous treatment of the aborigines. He was also conspicuous in meetings called to consider the alarming financial position of the colony during Governor Gawler's, and the early part of Governor Grey's Administrations. Mr. Davis was elected an Alderman of the first Corporation with the late Mr. G. Stevenson, Smillie, and others, Sir James Fisher being Mayor. This institution was abolished in 1843 as too costly and cumbrous for the circumstances of the colony. Mr. Davis had a great taste for horticulture and rural pursuits, and not very long after his arrival commenced farming, and laid the foundation of the Moore Farm Garden that has attained such celebrity. Next to the late Mr. George Stevenson, probably there is no one to whom horticulture in South Australia owes so much as to the subject of this notice. After the commercial crisis of 1841-2, Mr. Davis, having gone with the general crash, retired altogether to his sections at the Reedbeds, where he devoted himself to his favorite occupation, and acquired a competence. For many years he was known as one of the most successful exhibitors at our shows of horticultural produce. He did not, however, abandon public affairs, but was always among the foremost in any movement having for its object the good of the colony, and the maintenance of the principles upon which it was founded. In 1846 he took an active part in the agitation against State aid to religion. Having been one of those who were attracted to the colony by the principle recognised in its foundation that religion should be perfectly independent of the State, he felt strongly the attempt to interfere with what he considered a distinct understanding between the British Government and the founders of the colony, and entered with the utmost earnestness into the contest that arose. He was present at the memorable meeting at the Court-House, when the colonists, by an overwhelming majority, declared against the grant : he wrote with great power against the innovation, and was one of the four secretaries to the Anti-State Aid League, the other three being the present Chief Justice, Mr. John Brown, and Mr. Win. Bakewell. He was a member of the Central Road Board during the fierce agitation against the dray and land taxes in 1849-50, both of which the Government were obliged to abandon. People were about this time looking forward to representative government, and naturally, Mr. Davis took a warm interest in the subject. In 1849, he attended a meeting upon the question, and denounced the attempt of some of the officials and politicians of the day, to establish a peerage, whether life or hereditary, in a speech replete with cogent argument, colony received its first constitution, by which two thirds of the members of the Council were to be elective, and Mr. Davis was at once looked to as one of the most fit men for a seat in the new Parliament. Accordingly, upon invitation, he stood for West Torrens, but was defeated by Mr. Charles Simeon Hare, professing the same principles, by a majority of two. After this, Mr. Davis resolved never again to woo the sweet voices of the multitude, and nothing could induce him to alter his decision ; and not even after our new Constitution was granted would he stand for either House. He was, however, for some years Chairman of the District Council of West Torrens, and, with his duties as a member of the Central Road Board, and as a Magistrate, much of his time was given to the public. In 53-4 there was a fresh agitation respecting the new Constitution, to supplant the mixed one we had received as an instalment of our rights ; and Mr. Davis showed that his opinion had become very much modified on political matters, and he appeared as a Conservative, advocating an Upper House of nominees for life. His letters under the signature of ' Vigil' will be remembered by many. The Council and he agreed on this matter, but the remonstrances of the colonists induced the Home Government to return the Constitution framed by the Council as disapproved, and the result was eventually our present system of representative Government inaugurated in 1857. From this time Mr. Davis did not appear so much in public affairs till in 1859 he started the Thursday Review, for the advocacy of more Conservative opinions than were popular with the colonists. This periodical did not, however, meet with a very large support, and was subsequently dropped. Mr. Davis's political history ends here, and though in his writings he displayed some want of respect for the opinions of others, and although many complained of a bitterness of manner in dealing with political questions and political men, all acknowledged his sincerity, and respected his never-failing moral courage. He was throughout his colonial life a contributor to the press, and many of his literary efforts live in the memory of old colonists. He was also a member of the Linnsean Society, and an ardent lover of natural history. For the last year or two, Mr. Davis has suffered from failing health, and a severe attack of illness some time ago, warned his friends of the uncertain tenure of his life. It is not without feelings of sorrow, that we record the loss of one whose name is inseparably associated with the early history of the colony, who has been one of our most useful colonists, whose opinions, whether popular or unpopular, were always advanced with sincerity, and defended with earnestness, and who, in his various public positions, displayed the qualities of an able man and a good citizen.

Worthy S.A. Pioneer A PROPOS the centenary of the Adelaide City Council, I had an entertaining chat yesterday with Mr. E. H. D. Davis, of Davenport terrace, Ovingham, grandson of Abraham Hopkins Davis, one of Adelaide's first aldermen in 1840. and a man with a fine record of-public service. Born in Surrey in 1796, A. H. Davis arrived here in the ship Lord Goderich on April 15. 1838. He lived at first in a tent in Rundle street, on the site of the Myer Emporium, and later at Gilles Arcade, Waymouth street west, and had a store in Grenfell street, opposite the Y.uM.C-A. Before he left London, by the way. Mr. Davis was a publisher and bookseller. Buying land at Fulham, which he named Moore Farm, Mr. Davis became the first chairman of the West Torrens District Council, with which he was connected until his death in 1866. Moore Farm (now Kidman) bridge, over Breakout Creek, Fulham. was named in recognition of his services, and he gave portion of his land for the road through to Henley Beach. The old homestead, on the south-west side of the bridge, still stands. Abraham Hopkins Davis was chair man of the Royal Agricultural and Horticultural Society of SA in 1850-51

Death of Mr. Dehane.—We have to record the decease of another old colonist—Mr. George Dehane, of King William-street. As early as 1839 Mr. Dehane was engaged in business here as a printer and stationer. By his diligence and probity he soon achieved a respectable position, and eventually acquired a competency. When the Adelaide Observer was started Mr. Dehane undertook to print it at his office in Morphett-street, and continued to do so until the first proprietor had provided his own type and presses. Mr. Dehane was well known and much esteemed by those of his fellow-colonists who had witnessed the untiring, industry of his early career. He leaves a sorrowing widow, who has been unremitting in her attentions, and ably managed his affairs during his protracted illness, and one daughter, who is married to an eminent manufacturer in England.

South Australian Advertiser Saturday 29 December 1860 page 2
Death from Drowning.—On Thursday Mr. Simon Fairlie, the well-known auctioneer and appraiser, left town by the 11 o'clock omnibus for Glenelg. On his arrival he went into the Pier Hotel for a glass of ale, and, remarking that it was very hot, said he should go and bathe. This was the last that was seen of him alive. Some persons having noticed a bundle of clothes lying for some time on the beach feared that all was not right, and on giving an alarm two boats were put off which, after a while, succeeding in recovering Mr. Fairlie's body shortly after 1 o'clock. It Is conjectured that he must either have been seized with cramp or have been sunstruck, or that probably the sudden chill arising from bathing while he was violently heated caused him to lose his life. The deceased was a very old colonist, having arrived by the LordGoderich in April, 1838. We regret to say that he leaves a widow and several children to lament their loss. An inquest on the body was held at the Pier Hotel before John Woodforde, Esq., J.P., Coroner, at 7 o'clock John Monk being foreman. Mrs. Mary Price said she came down in the same omnibus as deceased at 11 o'clock. Afterwards saw deceased come down on the beach. He undressed and went into the sea. Her husband was bathing at the same time, but lower down on the beach. Saw a head disappear, and became alarmed thinking it was her husband. Henry Francis Price said he went to the Bay that morning with deceased. He was very cheerful. Did not see him afterwards. Francis Gubbins, fisherman, said he was told at half-past 1 this day that there were some clothes on the beach, but no swimmer in sight, flurried down to the pier, and assisted by James Tostevin put off a boat and picked op the body of deceased, recognised it as the body of Simon Fairlie. The deceased was floating with his face down. He was quite dead when found. Frederic Wicksteed said—I knew the deceased intimately. He was a very expert swimmer. I have frequently cautioned him against proceeding out to sea so far. Alfred Thorpe, barman, said — I last saw deceased this day at half-past 12. I served him with only one small glass of brandy and ice. He seamen very cheerful. He went down to the beach but old not say he was going to bathe. The Jury fined a verdict of accidental death. The body, which was placed at Moseley's private house, was unchanged.

Sir — It may promote the object of life assurance by the fact being made known to the public that our regretted townsman, Mr. Simon Fairlie, had insured his life for £500, which sum will be duly paid by the Church of England Life Assurance Office. As the assurance is effected in another office, I feel no scruple iu bringing this fact before you. Yours, &c, K. B. COLLEY. King William-street, December 31.
FENN, Charles 1819 - 17 February 1873 at North Adelaide, SA
Occupation of Lawyer, Solicitor and MP Resided Kensington Buried North Road Cemetery, Nailsworth
A day or two since we announced the dangerous illness of Mr. Charles Fenn, solicitor, of Adelaide. We have now to announce his death, which occurred on Monday, 17th February, at the age of 56 years. For some months past it has been evident that his health was fast failing, and an accident which he met with a short time ago at the new Court Houses probably hastened his end, as, although the deceased gentleman was about town subsequently, he complained a good deal of the effects of the injuries he then received. Mr. Fenn was a South Australian of some 33 years standing. In the early days of the colony he was in partnership as a solicitor with Mr. Johnson. Afterwards, this connection being dissolved, he took into partnership Mr. Wearing, the present Third Judge, and the well known firm of Fenn & Wearing lasted till some time after the junior partner received the appointment of Crown Solicitor. The late Mr. T. B. Bruce, who was articled to Mr. Fenn, became his partner, and remained in that position for some years, when he joined Mr. K. L Stow. Mr. Fenn for many years had a very large solicitor's practice, and enjoyed an excellent position in the colony. He was remarkably clearheaded, and as a sound lawyer he was considered second to none. The funeral took place on Wednesday afternoon, February 19. His remains were interred in the North-road Cemetery, the service at the grave being conducted by Archdeacon Marryat. Amongst those present were Mr. C. F. Fenn, Mr. J. B. Fenn, and three younger brothers (sons of the deceased gentlemen), Mr. D. G. Gosse (son-in-law), the Acting Chief Justice (Mr. Justice Gwynne), Mr. Justice Wearing, the Hon. Geo. Stevenson, H.P. (Attorney-General), Messrs. R. L Stow, Q.C., S. J. Way, Q.C., W. O. Belt, J. P.

GWYNNE, Edward Castres Gordon Died 10 June 1888 at Glynde, SA
Courtesy of the State Library of South Australia B860
Mr. Justice Edward Castres Gwynne (grandfather of the present Owner) built the place. He came from Glynde, Sussex, England, on the ship Lord Goderich, arriving in South Australia in 1838. He named the localities of Glynde and Firle. Mr. Justice Gwynne died in 1888. His original property comprised 500 acres, on which he first built 90 years ago. Twenty years later he added to the front part of the residence. The entailed estate. was 35 acres and the house, which passed into the hands of his son, the late Mr. Edward Castres Gwynne. When the present owner, inherited control, in 1905, he found that the property surrounding the house was becoming a severe financial drain on the estate. For the most part the area was planted with beautiful English trees, which made it impossible for the ground to be cultivated. He obtained permission through the court for 30 acres to be sold. The property then became a trust estate, under which the inheritance will be continued in accordance with the wish of the founder. The rear portion of the house was remodelled by the present owner. It is interesting to note that the name of the estate is pronounced to rhyme with "blind." Mr. Gwynne asserts that the subdivision of Glynde and Glynde road should be spoken similarly. The names were given originally by his grandfather and were named after his home, which was pronounced in that way. Modern homes do not appeal to Mr. Gwynne, although he favors the use of modern facilities. For that reason he has added an electrically equipped kitchen to the house. The room adjoins the old kitchen, the walls of which are of cobble stones. When it was in operation the old kitchen contained a bread oven, as well as a wood fire range.

How Glynde Came Into Being By Lucy Maymon Hines Glynde is now a prosperous suburb of Adelaide. This article tells how it came into existence, and something about the man who founded it. Edward Castres Gwynne, a young lawyer of 27, came to south Australia through an engagement to the Government under Captain Hindmarsh in 1838. He sailed in the Lord Goderich with a letter of introduction to Judge Jeffcott from Edward Gibbon Wakefleld, founder of the Wakefield colonisation scheme. The letter was an interesting sidelight on the young province of those now far off days. A valuable possession of the Archives, presented by Mrs. Edward Castres Gwynne, sen., it reads: -- 'London, Oct. 9th, 1837. Dear Jeffcott — Mr. Gwynne, about whom I have written to you twice before, will deliver this. I hope and trust that he will give you satisfaction. He was a good deal bothered about being unacknowledged as an officer, but will tell you all particulars. South Australia is suffering greatly in England for want of information. We really know but little of what has happened there, and that little not favorable — chiefly of complaints and charges by the Governor against the Commissioners, officers, and the site of the town. I have seen one letter from an officer of the Buffalo, and heard of another, representing the Governor to be of opinion that Adelaide is in a wretched situation. People are asking where is the much promised news paper, and an opinion prevails that the Governor and the people about him have a bad opinion of the colony. Yet there is a strong predisposition to think well of South Australia, and if good and full accounts should arrive by the end of 1837 you will have an emigration of thousands next year. This year emigration has been checked by the almost total want of intelligence respecting the place and the doings of the colonists. News! News! News! Regular and plentiful. This is the one thing needful to make yours a great colony very soon.' Wakefield concludes by saying, 'I shall probably go south next year, and shall take a peep at you.' This letter was never delivered, for Judge Jeffcott, Captain Blenkinsop, and his crew were drowned while trying to navigate the Murray Mouth in an open boat late in 1837. Nor did Wakefield ever pay his promised visit. A fortnight after arriving in Adelaide Mr. Gwynne was admitted to the bar, presided over by Mr. Justice Jickling. He gave up his official position with the Government, and started in practice at the west end of North terrace. In 1840 Mr W. Bartley was a partner. Mr. Gwynne was appointed legal adviser to the South Australian Mining Association, which began to develop Burra Burra mines in 1845. He joined the militia as lieutenant in 1845. He lived at Parrot Cottage, Kermode street, for a year, in 1839 he purchased 500 acres of virgin country in the Payneham district. A four roomed pesey brick cottage had been erected by a former owner. To this he added four substantial rooms, with walls two feet thick, and a spacious entrance hall. Like all pioneers his heart was still in the motherland, and he named his home Glynde, after a town in Sussex, the county in which he was born in 1811. He perpetuated the memory of his wife (Miss Marian Borrow, third daughter of Richard Eals Borrow, of the 'Glen,' now Stonyfel) by naming Marian road. Firle he named after another Sussex town; Hampton street after Lord Hampton, a neighbor in Firle who had in his gift the parish of Lewes; Gage road after Lord Gage of Firle; and Shelley street after another friend. There is a Gwynne road at Burnside on the original boundary of the estate, and a Mount Gwynne in the north. Glynde road is an important thoroughfare in the eastern suburbs. The most picturesque part of the old house at the Glynde is the wall of the kitchen. It was built of pebbles from the river 90 years ago, every pebble of uniform size, with lines of plaster. With age the wall has mellowed to the lovely sienna shade it presents today. The holding is new a network of streets and avenues, with modern bungalows everywhere. 'Glynde' It self is an old house set in an old garden, its serene face turned to the hills. A green velvet drive bordered with japonica, orange tecoma, pink roses, and blue plumbago, wind round to the mansion dignified and remote in its old-world charm. A great Moreton Bay fig tree spreads its branches over the house, casting a cool shade on the hottest day. Two iron rings set in the trunks of cedar trees have been used for hitching horses ever since the judge fastened his favorite white horse there over 80 years ago. Great Aladdin jars under the trees, and a bird fountain, add to the charm. The house was added to as years went on and the family increased. In 1907 seven more rooms were built, including a wide hall and vestibule. The new building covered the well that was the chief source of water supply in the old days. Between the old and new building a quaint cedar corkscrew staircase with carved posts leads up to the roof. In the days of shingle roofs and box gutters, the water overflowed after heavy rain, and spoilt the ceilings, and constant attention was necessary. Four great cellars under the house were used for storing wine made at the homestead for private and commercial purposes. Some old labels are still to be found there. The old kitchen had a bread oven, later converted into a wash boiler, and an enormous box to hold the home-made bread. Off that was a bacon-curing room. Nowadays, a fully equipped electric kitchen is used. The large drawing room, built for entertainment as well as domestic use, saw many happy gatherings in the sixties and seventies, when Adelaide's crinolined ladies and be-whiskered gentlemen made social life so full of gaiety. On one memorable occasion the Duke of Edinburgh made a surprise visit to Glynde to find the family away from home. The domestic staff, in great trepidation, did their best to entertain him. He sat on an iron verandah chair on the lawn, had a drink from the well, ate fruit from the garden, and asked to be allowed to wash his hands. After his departure the maids cut the towel he used into four pieces, and each kept a piece for a souvenir. The chair is still the 'Duke of Edinburgh's chair.' Glynde has many lovely old treasures. The most prized one is a group of General Gordon and his wife and family, three sons and two daughters. The sons were officers who fought in the Crimea, and all three went through the Charge of the Light Brigade. Charles became the famous General Gordon, of Khartoum, and Judge Gwynne's mother was aunt to this famous soldier. The judge had thirteen children, a large family to be waited on at meal times. A large two handled wicker basket, lined with metal, was used by the maids to carry away the china after each course. Three brothers— Dr. Gordon Gwynne, Captains William and Richard Gwynne— came out to New South Wales in charge of convicts. Dr. Gwynne sent orange trees to Adelaide from Paramatta, which Judge Gwynne planted on 25 acres. They were the first oranges in South Australia. As a public man, Judge Gwynne had a brilliant career. He was appointed third judge of the Supreme Court in 1859, under Chief Justice Sir C. Cooper: second Judge in 1867, and Acting Chief Justice during the absence of Sir R.D. Hanson, 1872-3. He retired in 1881 with a pension of £1,300 a year. As a politician he was elected one of the non-official members of the first Legislative Council. In 1854 he championed the cause of a girl who was charged with a criminal action, and defended her so eloquently that he became immensely popular with the public. This probably had a great deal to do with his election to the Legislative Council under the new Constitution, without his once addressing the electors. There was on one occasion, however, opposition to his election to office in the person of J. B. Hughes. The banners carried in the streets bore the slogan: — Vote for Gwynne you win. Vote for Hughes you lose. Unfortunately for Mr. Gwynne and the slogan, Mr. Hughes won. During his legal career the name of Judge Gwynne was associated with the following partners — Gwynne and Hartley, in 1840, Gwynne and Matthew Smith, Gwynne and Mann, and Gwynne and Lawrence. The firm eventually became Knox, Gwynne and Hargraves. Judge Gwynne was of fine stature, On the occasion of his death, June 10, 1888, it was said of him:— 'His unimpeachable integrity secured to him the confidence alike of bar and public. It can justly be said of him that he was thoroughly courageous and impartial, an upright judge and an honorable gentleman.'

OBITUARY. DEATH OF MR. JUSTICE GWYNNE. Death has removed from our midst another of those who, having laid the foundations of the colony, have lived to see a stable and prosperous community established. The now little band is rapidly becoming smaller, and soon none will be left to tell the tale of the trials encountered and the hardships endured during the first five years of the colony's existence. Few of those now remaining had a longer experience than the Hon. Edward Castres Gwynne, who died at his residence at the Glynde on Sunday morning. The deceased, the son of the Rev. William Gwynne, rector of St. Anne's Church, in Lewes, Sussex, was born in February, 1811, so that at the time of his death he was little over 77 years of age. His primary education was received at St. Anne's Grammar School, in his native town. Thence he went to the establishment of the Rev. George Evans, near Sheffield, Yorkshire. When he left that institution he was articled to Mr. Charles Willis, an attorney of Cranbrook, in Kent, with whom he studied the law for three years. He finished his articles with Messrs. Few & Co., of the Strand, London. Mr, Gwynne practised as an attorney until 1837. As that memorable year grew old the accounts began to arrive in England of the new colony—South Australia. Among the many who were willing to embark their fortunes in the young country was Mr. Gwynne, at that time nearly 27 years of age. Towards the end of 1837 he took his passage in the barque LordGoderich, and on April 15,1838, landed at Port Adelaide. The new colonist lost no time in getting up an office at the west-end of North-terrace. Before he had been settled a fortnight Mr. Gwynne applied for admission to the Bar, presided over at that time by Mr. Justice Jickling. In due time Mr. Gwynne was given permission to practise as a barrister, and before long he had earned for himself a prominent position in the settlement. Six months after his arrival came the advent of Colonel Gawler as Governor of the Province, and Mr. Gwynne was one of those who signed the address welcoming him. Amongst those signatures attached to the document were Messrs. G. S. Kingston, J. H. Fisher, J. Brown, J. Morphett, J. B. Hack, T. Gilbert, W. Wyatt, J. Hallett, C. G. Everard, B. T. Finniss, A, Hardy, J. Newman. F. Wicksteed, T, Y, Cotter, H. R, Wigley, Y. B. Hutchinson, J. B. Shepherd son, W. C. Cox, H. Mildred, S. Hack, G. 'White, E. B, Gleeson, and W, K. Thomas. The next two years was a period of financial embarrassment for the colony, but Mr. Gwynne made his way despite all obstacles. In 1810 he be came a partner with Mr. William Bartley. Afterwards Mr. Gwynne joined with Mr. Charles Mann, father of the present Crown Solicitor, the Hon. C. Mann, Q C, The new firm enjoyed a prosperous career. Later on Mr. Gwynne took into partnership Mr, Lawrence, and they worked together until 1859, The senior partner attained a reputation for his knowledge of equity law, a knowledge only equalled by that of Mr., afterwards Sir Richard Hanson, with whom later on Mr. Gwynne was associated judicially. Although he took no active part in the development of the copper industry, which was initiated here during the fifth decade of the present century, he was still concerned in it, for he was legal adviser to the South Australian Mining Association, which in 1815 began to develop the famous Burra Burra Mine. When in 1846 a remark able agitation was carried on in Adelaide with the view of having the Constitution altered so that the State would acknowledge the Established Church Mr. Gwynne was found taking a part. Mr. Gwynne continued to practise his profession successfully, and in 1851 was appointed a non-official member of the Legislative Council. Mr. Gwynne lost no time in testing the feeling of the members with regard to State aid to religion, for eleven days after taking his seat he brought in a measure affirming the principle. Sir Richard Hanson, the then Advocate-General, was one of the most bitter opponents of that measure, which was rejected. In the succeeding year a committee was appointed, the practical result of whose deliberations was the new Constitution Act, which came into force in 1857. The Legislative Council under the new Constitution consisted of eighteen members selected by the whole colony. Mr. Gwynne, who' had retired from the Council in 1854, was one of the first to announce his candidature. Just about that time be interested himself with regard to a criminal action brought against a girl, and he defended her so eloquently and with such whole-hearted earnestness that he became immensely popular with a sympathetic public. This probably had a good deal to do with his election, which was obtained remarkably easily—in fact, he did not once address the electors. Of the seventeen other gentlemen who formed that historical body only five now survive, viz., Sir Henry Ayers, Sir John Morphett, Sir Samuel Davenport, Mr. Abraham Scott, and Mr. Anthony Forster. Mr, Gwynne did not take an absorbing interest in politics at this time, and his voice was seldom raised in the Council Chamber. Still, when Mr. John Baker formed a Ministry at a period of crisis on August 20,1855, Mr. Gwynne was chosen as Attorney-General, With him were associated besides the Premier, Messrs. J. Hart (Treasurer), W. Milne (Commissioner of Crown Lands), A. BIyth (Commissioner of Public Works), and J. T, Bagot (Solicitor General). That Ministry has since been known as the " Ten Days' Ministry." They were referred to in the no-confidence debate which took place with regard to their policy, as a "combination of heterogeneous materials," and were ousted from office by the Assembly by an overwhelming majority, the voting being 24 against 7. Mr. Gwynne's political career was short. It had scarcely extended over two years, when in February, 1853, he was raised to the Bench as Third Judge, the Chief Justice being Sir Charles Cooper, while Mr. Justice Boothby was the Second Judge. During the many years he served as Judge Mr. Gwynne had an unusual number of Associates. Sir Charles Cooper retired on November 19,1861, and on the next day Sir R, D. Hanson, his old rival at the Bar, was appointed to the vacant position. When the Equity Act became law in 1866 Mr. Justice Gwynne was appointed Primary Judge. One of the most important rulings Mr. Gwynne had to give was as to whether the Chief Justice was entitled to open the Criminal Sittings by Commission in 1887. Mr. Justice Boothby having raised the issue that the Colonial Commission upon which Sir Richard held his Judge ship was Invalid. Mr. Gwynne had, as it were, to give his casting-vote, and as his opinion was favourable to Sir Richard Hanson Mr. Boothby's action came to nought. That was in the month of February. In the middle of that year affairs judicial came to a deadlock owing to the attitude assumed by Mr. Justice Boothby, who in June was charged by the then Attorney-General, Mr. J. P. Boucant, with disrespect of the Court of Appeals, with refusal to recognise the authority of Parliament, with insulting the Legislature, the Government, the institutions of the country and the other Judges when on the Bench, and with allowing private and personal feeling to interfere with his administration of Justice. The Executive Council, after lengthily considering those serions charges, removed Mr. Boothby, and appointed in his stead Mr. Justice Gwynne, while Mr. W. A, Wearing, Q.C., was made third Judge. In February, 1869, the Chief Justice left for England on a holiday tour and during his absence the duties of the office were performed by Mr. Justice Gwynne for a little over twelve months. The wreck of the steamer Gothenburg on the Barrier Reefs in 1875, robbed the Bench of Mr. Justice Wearing, who with his associate, Mr. L. J. Pelham, Mr, J. J, Whitby, Acting Crown Solicitor, the Hon. T. Reynolds, and other leading citizens met a watery grave. Mr. R. L Stow was appointed to the vacancy. The next year saw yet another change, as on March 4 Sir Richard Hanson died, and the Present Chief Justice took his place, a 1878, on the death of Mr. Stow, Mr. J. P. Boucaut was appointed Third Judge. Then on February 28, 1881, after exactly twenty two years' service, Mr. Gwynne himself retired, and was succeeded by the late Mr. Justice Andrews. His term of service had been valuable and interesting. He served with seven other gentlemen, and through out the whole period had maintained a high position in the estimation of the public, and no one begrudged him the pension of £1.300 per annum to which he was entitled on his retirement. Mr. Justice Bundey when as Attorney-General in 1880 be spoke on the second reading of the Judges Retiring Bill referred in high terms of Mr. Justice Gwynne. Said Mr. Bundey—"His Honor had never striven to make himself popular, but a more upright Judge they had not seen on this side of the Line. . . . He had done his duty without fear or favour." His judgments were generally respected, and stood the test of an appeal to the Privy Council. One cause that hastened Mr. Gwynne's retirement was the Act passed in 1878 providing for the "better administration of justice," which made it necessary for him to work far harder than at his age he was able in order to give effect to the new procedure. Rest was soon found to be necessary, and when he left the Bench he retired to the comparative seclusion of his own estates. Only once during his long public career did he leave the colony for a lengthened period, and that was in 1877, when he received the necessary leave of absence to enable him to visit the old country. Before he left for England he was entertained at dinner by members of the Bar in the Town Hall, when many complimentary things were said about the guest of the evening. During the judicial period of his career Mr. Gwynne lived a quiet home life. Before his elevation to the Bench he took a lively interest in racing, having kept a number of well-known and successful race horses. He had a stud farm on the River Inman, on which he bred both blood and draught stock and cattle. The farm, which he kept possession of, is now let out to farmers. He was a well-known cultivator of the orange, his orangery at the Glynde being one of the largest and best in the colonies. He also took a deep interest in viticulture, and his vineyard contained about 25 acres of vines. Although of recent years Mr. Gwynne has not been seen much in public his death will be felt, especially by the older colonists. All who knew him could not but respect him for his quiet, dignified bearing. He generally had the reputation of being reserved, but one who was associated with him from the earliest days says that he never more enjoyed a chat than with him. His memory was remarkably well preserved, and he could speak of his early and continued relations with all the enthusiasm and more than the usual vigour of a pioneer. His spare time was devoted to his estate, in which he took a pardonable pride. He was a fine horseman, and his splendid carriage even in his later days was noticeable. He had, indeed, had a taste of military life early in the fifties, when he was captain of a cavalry troop, of which the Hon. John Baker was lieutenant, and which included in its ranks some of the foremost citizens of the day. Mr. Gwynne, who, by-the-way, was a full cousin of the lamented "Chinese Gordon," married the fourth daughter of the late Mr. R. E, Borrow, of the firm of Messrs. Borrow and Goodiar, the well-known contractors, and leaves four daughters and four sons. One daughter married Mr. N. A. Knox, and another Mr. Frederick Bethell. The sons are—Mr. E. C. Gwynne (of Messrs. Knox, Gwynne, & Hargrave), Mr. Roland Gwynne (Chief Clerk in Patent Office), Mr. Richard Gwynne (Assistant Accountant to Messrs. Elder, Smith, & Co.), and Mr. Illtyd Gwynne (articled to Messrs, Knox, Gwynne, and Hargrave). A very representative gathering of mourners followed the remains of the late Mr. Justice Gwynne to the Payneham Cemetery, where the deceased pioneer colonist was buried on Monday afternoon. 'Widely known and closely identified as he was with the concerns of the colony for nearly half a century, the death of the late Mr. Gwynne detaches another link from the fast shortening chain that connects the colonists of the present with the earliest days of the province. It would have been surprising indeed if the assemblage of people at his funeral had not been thoroughly representative. A large number of the leading members of the legal profession attended to pay a tribute to the memory of one who had been one of the first members of the South Australian Bar, and there were several old colonists, amongst them being a few who had been associated with the deceased gentleman in his political career and life as a colonist. The Government Offices were closed to allow the members of the Civil Service an opportunity of attending, and members of the different departments were there. The service at the grave was conducted by Archdeacon Farr. The funeral arrangements were carried out by Mr. Gay. The cortege left the Glynde at 3.30 for the pretty little graveyard of Payneham, which is not far distant from the late Judge's residence. The Glynde is named after General Trevors' property in the native county of the late Judge Gwynne, whose father was rector of Firle-cum-Bettingham, in Sussex, a living in the gift of the Trevors.

The roll of old colonists is gradually thinning out. On Mouday evening Mrs. J. F. Schmidt, of Goodwood, passed away at the age of 85 years. She was born in Middlesex. England in October 1826 and arrived here with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. G. Hardeman. in the ship Lord Godridge, 11 1/2 years later. After a few days in Adelaide the family travelled to Victor Harbor in a bullock dray, and Mr. Hardeman took up land in the vicinity and farmed it. After a few years at Victor Harbor they returned to the city, and Miss Hardeman met and married Mr. Schmidt, who was then the licensee of the Queen's Head Hotel North Adelaide. From the Queen's Head Mr. and Mrs. Schmidt moved to the Dauphin Hotel, Rundle street (now the Bijou). And from there to the Golden Fleece, in Currie-street, near where Gilles' Arcade (formerly Boase's Ar- cade) now stands. In those days that was the site of the first theatre built in Adelaide. From the Golden Fleece Mr. Schmidt purchased the lease of the Exchange Hotel Hindley-street, when there were pines growing in the street, and his pigs, running loose, used to find their way into Government House. In the early fifties Mr. Schmidt was caught in the flood of gold-seekers, and went over to the Bendigo diggings to try his fortune, leaving his wife in charge at the Exchange. After a few years there he returned and sold out at the Exchange to Mr. G. Bunn. He then moved to Salisbury, where he engaged in farming. He was successful in this, and in his first year on the land won a bet of £100 that he would have the first thousand bushels of wheat of the season in at the Port Adelaide market. But the gold fever was strong in his veins, and shortly afterwards he returned again to Bendigo where he died. His wife moved to Goodwood, and had lived there ever since. She left four sons and two daughters - Messrs. J. F. Schmidt of Mannum: H. G. Schmidt, of Perth: W. R. Schmidt. 30 years ago manager of the railway ticket office and now in America as a musician: and F. Schmidt, of Adelaide: Mrs. W. Spooner, of Mile End: and Mrs. M. M Schmidt, of Goodwood. The late Mr. A. Schmidt, who was for 12 1/2 years with H L. Vosz & Co., was also a son.

FATAL ACCIDENT WITH FIREARMS. — On Monday last a young man named William Lawes, son of Mr Peter Lawes, of Sandy Creek, near Lyndoch Valley, was accidentally shot by his brother, and died the following day. It appears that the brothers, with some other young men, were out shooting, and went into a blacksmith's shop to have one of the guns repaired. Whilst there the surviving brother was holding his gun across his arm, with the muzzle pointing behind him, when in consequence of some entanglement of the lock in his dress it went off and lodged the contents in the groin of the deceased. We hope this will be a caution, added to the scores of warnings that have gone before, against the incautious use of firearms.

Another pioneer, Mr. George Malpas, of Noarlunga, son of the late Mr. John Malpas, of St. Bernards, Magill, and brother of Mr. Henry Malpas, J.P., of Willunga, and Mr. William Malpas, of Athelstone, died on July 19 after a short illness, caused by an affection of the heart, at the age of seventy-three years. He arrived in the colony on April 15, 1833, in the barque Lord Goderich, 500 tons, after a most tedious passage of six months. During the voyage considerable difficulty was caused by differences between the captain and the passengers, and in order to settle them the captain put into Bahia, and proceeded to Rio de Janeiro under the charge of Lieutenant Edwards, of H.M.S. Samarang. At Rio the British Consul put the ship and passengers under the superintendence of Mr. Stephen Whettem, R.N., master assistant of H.M.S. Lyra.

Another old colonist has passed away, in the person of Mr. WilliamOldham, who died at his residence, Kapunda. Mr. Oldham was born in Dublin in 1811. and consequently at the time of his death was in. his 7oth year. He was educated at Trinity College. For some time he was employed as confidential clerk in Guiness's brewery. In 1838 he emigrated to South Australia, arriving in the ship Lord Godride, and after his arrival here filled the position for some time of of protector of aborigines. He opened a school in Light-square, Adelaide a year or two subsequently, and in 1842 removed to Gawler, where he continued to conduct a school, afterwards removing to Angaston. In 1846 he relinquished school-teaching to take the position of purser to the Kapunda copper mines under his cousin, Captain C. H. Bagot. After filling this post for two years, and on Captain Bagot visiting England, Mr. Oldham was appointed manager of the mine from then till 1807, when the mine changed hands, he continued as manager, developing the works until nearly four hundred men were employed, and the monthly expenditure amounted to £3,000, and the output of the mines reached 100 tons per month for many years.
He was succeeded as manager under the new company by Captain Osborne. Mr. Oldham was the first bank manager in Kapunda, and subsequently occupied the position of managing director. In his later years he was engaged in business on his own account as a surveyor, architect, &c., and at the same time was clerk to the Kapunda District Council, a position which he held up to the time of his death. Mr. Oldham always took an active interest in the volunteer movement, and organised the well-known Mines Rifle Company, and when the force was revived held the post of captain of the local company, retiring into the reserve with the rank of of major. He was for many years one of the most active magistrates in the district, and principally through his instrumentality the Congregational church was erected the pulpit of which he filled for some years. _ He was a most energetic member of the christian ministry, and filled the pulpit of any denomination which at any time needed his services. He was closely connected with the foundation and subsequent maintenance of most of the institutions in Kapunda and held a very high post in the Masonic Lodge, The illness which resulted in his death was short but severe, and for some days his end was hourly expected. His forty years' residence in Kapunda has been most useful to the town and district, and few could be so ill spared from our midst. He leaves an aged widow, and-the following sons and daughters: —Messrs. E. B. Oldham, Kapunda, and C. C. Oldham, manager National Bank, Willunga; and Mesdames O'Sullivan and E, Salter, Angaston, and W. G. Goodchild.

The death of Mrs. W. Oldham at the advanced age of 87 years is announced. She was born in Dublin on October 10, 1814, and came to South Australia with her husband the late Mr. William Oldham, of Kapunda, on the ship Lord Godrich, arriving at Port Adelaide in February, 1838. After a short residence at Gawler and Angaston Mr. and Mrs. Oldham finally settled in Kapunda where Mrs. Oldham's kindness of heart won for her the affection of a large circle of friends. Since Mr. Oldham's death in 1885 she had resided principally with her son-in-law and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. Edward Salter, of Angaston, and it was at their home she peacefully passed away early on Sunday morning, November 17.

Death has claimed another old pioneer in Mr. F. B. Oldham, who died at his home. Miller street, North Unley, on Friday, June 18, in his 83rd year. The late Mr. Oldham was a conspicuous figure at the annual luncheon at Glenelg on Commemoration Day, December 28, at which he has responded several times on behalf of the pioneers. He was born on board the ship LordGoderich. which arrived at Holdfast Bay in 1838, and was carried ashore by the "bosun" of the boat between the site of the present baths and the mouth of the Patawalonga. His early days were spent at Kapunda, and he subsequently was one of the pioneers to try his fortune in the Northern Territory. There survive a widow, who is a sister of the late Sir Edwin Smith's first wife; one son (Mr. Hugh Oldham, who holds a high position in the Western Australian civil service); and four daughters (Mesdames Luttman-Johnson and Garth, both of whom have long been resident in London, and Misses A. and E.

Mr SamuelPayne, late of the Auction Mart Tavern, from which he recently retired, intending shortly to take up his residence upon his country estate at Payneham. Mr Payne had not escaped the attack of the prevalent influenza, but there were no accompanying symptoms which threatened him with consequences more serious than his neighbours, until shortly before he died, when he was found on the bedroom floor in a speechless state, and was supposed to have sustained a concussion of the brain from falling out of bed, during one of the paroxysms of the disorder. The sufferer continued in a state of apparent unconsciousness for some hours, in fact until the moment of decease. Mr Payne arrived in the colony ten years ago, and to an early and most fortunate purchase of town land he superadded such a diligent, successful, and upright career in business, as secured him that general esteem and confidence to which he was so much entitled. Deceased has left a widow and seven children, who will doubtless find ample provision in the handsome property left by our lamented fellow citizen ; but we regret to learn that the ultimate division of the estate is not provided for by any testamentary document. Mr Payne having been a brother of the Order of Oddfellows, the members of the lodges in town will start in procession from the Adelaide Lodge, this day at two o'clock precisely, thence to the Hope Lodge, where its members will join, and proceed to the residence of the decease, and accompany the body to the cemetery.

He was the original owner of the Adelaide town acre on which the Exchange Hotel now stands. Shares were sold by him at £10 each in the 'village of Payneham' 107 years ago. Payneham comprised portion of East Torrens Council until 1856. when Campbelltown. St. Peters, and Payneham formed the District Council of Payneham. The Campbelltown section was severed from Payneham proper in 1868. and the St. Peters Municipality in 1883.

An Old Identity — Referring to the death of Mr. Arthur Payne, which took place at Brisbane, a correspondent has received a letter from his son, which gives some interesting remarks as to an identity of the early days of Adelaide. 'The latter part of his life, I grieve to say, was strewn with thorns, not roses, and, although he has been a burden to his family, in his palmy days he was a good and affectionate father. He was foolish and careless there is no doubt, and so wore many other men of his time. He was honest and straightforward to a degree. His big generous heart and willing hand brought him to grief, and his family along with him but there was not a scrap of evil in his simple life all through. He came out to the colony with his parents (Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Payne, the founders of the famous Exchange Hotel in Hindley-street in the Lord Goderich, ship, and lived at first at Port Adelaide in tents. Then his father lived in Adelaide, and after wards Payneham, which he founded, and lastly Arthur Payne lived at a well-known model farm at Noarlunga. He used to say that he brought the first retriever dog to South Australia, and was the owner of the blood horses Longdog, Whalebone, and Forlorn Hope, and steeplechaser Bay Johnny, also Tom Moody. Every one knew of Arthur Payne's wonderful shooting powers, and in the early days he used to win everything in that line pretty well. He was a member of the Adelaide first Cricket Club, played the game well, and was also as fine a horseman as any in South Australia. Although he lost all himself in Adelaide, others benefited to the tune of nearly £40,000, besides the Payneham and Noarlunga properties. His whole fortune was spent in South Australia, and though an absentee for a good many years past he was a penniless one, and does not even lie in his own burying-ground (the vault of the Payne family is in West-terrace Cemetery). Mr. Payne was married to the daughter of the late Rev. S.Allom, and leaves behind a large family scattered about the colonies. His sisters were married to Mr. J. H. Parr, the late Mr. H. Noltenius, and Mr. Lightfoot. He is the last of his family, as all his sisters, as well as his brothers James and Augustus, have predeceased him. He was the owner of the yacht Coquette, afterwards converted into steam by Mr. Moseley.

OBITUARY. Death of Mr. Wicksteed. — Amongst our obituary notices is recorded the death of an old and well-known colonist, Mr. Frederic Wicksteted who expired at his residence. North Adelaide, at 5.30 a.m., on Monday, May 14. Mr. Wicksteed, who was about 63 years of age, has been failing rapidly of late, and for the last five months has been incapacitated from business, so that his death was not unexpected. The deceased gentleman arrived in South Australia by the LordGoderich in the year 1839, and was long connected in business with the late.T. B. Neales. He afterwards became a member of the firm of Samson, Wickstecd, & Co., and later still, in 1856, entered into partnership with Messrs. Townbend & Botting, under the title of Wicksteed, Towusend, Botting, &Co. This partnership expired in 1859 and Mr. Wicksteed then started as an auctioneer on his own account, in the old Pantheon building, King William-street. He was for years Government Auctioneer but in 1862 he retired from the auctioneering pursuits, and became associated with certain business organizations connected with the Church of England in this colony. He was appointed Acting Secretary to the Synod, and Attorney for the S. P. G., and other Church funds, in place of Mr. Pitt Cobbett, who had retired on leave. In 1863 Mr. Wicksteed was fully confirmed in this appointment when Mr. Cobbett resigned it to remain in England. He was also for years City Auditor and Auditor to the Savings Bank. The latter post he only recently resigned. He was identified with the Masonic body and other similar Orders. The deceased gentleman, who leaves a widow and 14 children, was widely known throughout the colony, and as widely respected.
South Australian Register Thursday 17 May 1877 page 6
We regret to have to record the death of another old and a greatly esteemed colonist, Mr. FrederickWicksteed, which occurred at his residence, North Adelaide, on the 14th of May, in his 64th year. For some months past Mr. Wicksteed had been in a feeble state of health, and his medical attendant ordered him to Port Victor about four months ago, hoping that he would derive benefit from the change; but he was obliged to return home after an absence of only about a fortnight. The doctor considers that Mr. Wicksteed's chief complaint has been softening of the posterior portion of the brain, which has also affected the spinal cord. There has been also a general breaking up of the system. Mr. Wicksteed was a native of Shropshire, and arrived in South Australia in the year 1838, by the ship LordGoderich. In the following year he proceeded to the then new settlement of Port Lincoln, in connection with the establishment of Messrs. Smith & Shaen, and on their relinquishing business at that place a year or two after, Mr. Wicksteed returned to Adelaide. Shortly after this he became confidential clerk and assistant auctioneer to the late Mr. John Bentham Neales, with whom he remained for many years. On Mr. Neales giving up the auctioneering business, Mr. Wicksteed succeeded to it, and conducted it for some years with Mr. Wm. Samson. On the latter retiring Mr. Wicksteed entered into partnership with Messrs. Neales, Botting, & Townsend, on May 1, 1856. and at the same time he held the appointment of Government Auctioneer; but after the expiration of the partnership on September 1,1859, he left them and established himself on his own account. For many years he has been the able Secretary to the Church of England Synod; and the Bishop in his recent address to that body made a graceful allusion to the valuable services Mr. Wicksteed had rendered to the Church in this colony. The deceased gentleman was also secretary to the attorneys for the Leigh Endowment, which consisted of property in Leigh-street, settled upon the Church of England. He was an old member of the honorable craft of Freemasons, amongst whom he long held high office, having been W.M. of the Lodge of Truth, North Adelaide, D.G. Senior Warden, and Secretary to the Freemasons'General Committee from its commencement. He was also a member of the Odd fellows' Society. He held for a long time the office of City Auditor, and was also one of the Auditors to the Savings Bank. Mr. Wicksteed married about 28 years ago a daughter of Mr. T. S. Kell, of Morphett Vale, by whom he had a large family of sons and daughters, thirteen of whom are still living. He was best known to old colonists and most liked by those who had known him longest and most intimately. In former days he was an excellent Chairman at the gatherings, both festive and formal, in connection with the Friendly Societies of which he was so prominent and useful a member. His kindly disposition, and genial pleasant manner, at all times made him a favorite with all classes. Latterly, owing to declining health, he had not been seen much in public, but in days gone by there were few faces more familiar, and his decease will cause sincere sorrow to a very large circle of friends, who respected his strict integrity, and to whom he was endeared by his amiability, and general excellence of character. A brother of Mr. Wicksteed is a Unitarian minister of some celebrity.

Inquest into the death of Mrs. ElizabethKnightFidge was held at Mr. Lewis Fidge's residence, Aldinga, on Thursday, September 2, by Mr. Wm. Goode, J.P., and a Jury, of whom Mr. T. Pengilly was chosen Foreman. Eleanor Fidge deposed—Deceased is my mother. She has been ill about five weeks, and was confined to her bed part of that time. During her illnes she ate but little. She had a bad cold. At dinner time yesterday I observed that she was much paler than usual, but she did not complain. She was in bed then, and had not been up during the day. About 2 p.m. I went to Aldinga, and returned at half-past 6. "Went to my mother's room, and spoke to her, but she did not reply. She was awake at the time. I heard her speaking, but could not understand what she said. About half an hour after I went to her bedside to give her a drink of maizana. Spoke to her, but received no answer, lifted her up and found that she was dead. At once sent for assistance, and for Mr. Tripe. No medical man saw her during her last illness, but she had previously been treated for heart disease. She drank a large quantity of water yesterday, but had no other drink that I am aware of. By a Juror—She did not appear to be worse during this illness Until yesterday than I have known her to be before, and ho the doctor was net called in. The servant accompanied me to the room when I found her dead. My father was in the same bed, and had occupied it all day. He was asleep when, we entered the room. He is confined to his bed, and is not able to be present at this enquiry. My mother had taken brandy and water occasionally during her illness. She sometimes kept spirits in her room. She was not of temperate habits. Honorable Murtough said—I have been servant st Mr. Fidge's about five months. Mrs. Fidge has been ill a considerable time: I cannot say how long. I waited upon her. Sometimes gave her brandy and water, and at others water only. She was downstairs on Saturday last, but not since then. She did not complain. She appeared very weak, and did not eat much. Yesterday morning early she called me from my bed and asked for some brandy, which I gave her. About 3 o'clock in the afternoon she asked for some water. She drank three glasses, and I afterwards made some maizena, of which she took two cups, I saw her again when I was going to bed. I went with Miss Fidge and found her dead. By the Foreman—Mr. Fidge was in the same bed. His daughter woke him. He was not sober. I did not give him any brandy yesterday. Mr. Broughton and his daughter got him to leave , the room. By a Juror—She has been in the habit of drinking. By Police trooper McKivor—Deceased and her husband lived in the room for some time past. I don't know how many weeks. They kept spirits in the room—sometimes as much as a gallon. I have seen her tipsy. She was drinking on Tuesday and on several days before. She was in the yard last Saturday. They did not quarrel. I do not consider Mrs. Fidge was of sober habits. Robert Broughton deposed—I have been working for Mr. Fidge about two years, I last saw Mrs. Fidge on Friday, August 28. She was in the garden. She only remained about five or ten minutes. I thought she was very ill that day. That was the last time I saw her alive. I once saw her worse for drink. I have heard that she drank, but it was seldom I saw her. When I first came here she was often out. Mr. Fidge is not about so much as he used to be— from the effects of drink, I think. They did not quarrel. H. K. G. Tripe, duly qualified medical practitioner, said—I was called last night at 10 30, by messenger, who Informed me Mrs. Fidge was dead. I came to the house and found she had been dead some hours. Examined the body I found no external marks. Upon enquiry I was informed she had suddenly taken a large quantity of cold water. This oircumstance, coupled with intemperate habits, I believe caused her death. The fact of a person like deceased drinking a large quantity of cold water would cause congestion, which would produce apoplexy. From what I have heard and know, I consider it is also complicated with disease of the heart. I do not think I could have done any good had I been called before death occurred. . The Jury returned the following verdict :—" That "ElizabethKnight Fidge came to her death by apoplexy, produced by partaking of a large quantity of cold water when her system was much weakened by intemperance." -
