Intimation has been received in Whitehead of the death at Chefoo, China, of Mr. Henry B. Niblock, a director of the well-established firm of Messrs. James M'Mullan & Co. The deceased was a native of Whitehead, and at an early age he entered the linen business in Belfast, and for upwards of a quarter of a century he was prominently identified with the staple industry of the city. He was a liberal yet unostentatious supporter of various philanthropic agencies in the city, and for many years he acted as one of the hon. secretaries of the Qua Iboe Mission; and while resident in China he continued his practical interest in the religious and philanthropic affairs of his native land. About fifteen years ago the deceased was induced to transfer his business activities to the East, and there his sterling integrity and splendid grasp of business affairs commanded him an acknowledged position, in the commercial life of that well-known port of Chefoo. From letters received during the summer by his friends in Whitehead it transpired that the late Mr. Niblock was contemplating retiring from business in order to come home to spend the evening of his life upon his native heath. The intimation of his death, after a few days' illness, has, therefore, caused much heartfelt regret among a large circle of friends and relatives. The deceased, who was a devoted member of the Presbyterian Church, was unmarried.

Needless to state, many were driven with vigour and energy. Several wounded soldiers were present during the afternoon, and took an active part in the various amusements.

Sir James H. Stronge, Bart., D.L., Grand Master of Ireland, continues to receive from Orangemen in all parts of the Empire fraternal congratulations in the important part taken by Irish Orangemen in the war. Peculiar satisfaction. arises from the eloquent appreciation contained in a resolution of an important representative meeting held on the 4th August in Hamilton, Ontario, under the auspices of Victoria L.O.L. 779, congratulating the Orange Institution upon the magnificent discipline and unflinching heroism of the Ulster Division in the unparalleled fighting on the 1st July, winning afresh undying glory and pride for the Ulster race. The Hamilton brethren express deep sympathy with the gallant wounded and fervent solicitation for the sorrowing and bereaved. Messages such as these indicate the virility of the unitive spirit of Orangemen in Canada with those in Ireland.



Possible Reopening of Negotiations

The Central News says that it understands there is every likelihood of the negotiations for an Irish settlement being resumed during the Parliamentary recess. Neither Sir E. Carson nor Mr. John. Redmond is discouraged by recent disappointments. In well-informed Irish political circles it is believed that Mr. Duke is exercising the influences of his office to bring about a satisfactory arrangement in the near future. He has made a favourable impression in Dublin, and his keen desire to improve the administration of Irish affairs has not escaped popular attention. A disquieting report has been in circulation with regard to a possible reconstruction of the official character of the Nationalist party, but, though certain changes may take place, it may be definitely stated that Mr. Redmond will still retain the leadership.



"There's no mistake, one does meet some pretty sporting padres at the front. Near H------ I met one who was a sort of a Knight Templar; he seemed to be a kind of free lance. Battalions came and went, but he stayed on in his dugout in the second line, as if he'd settled there for life. He knew that part of the line better than any man living; every nook and cranny in it; and when any party got fogged and wanted a guide, nobody could help them so Well as the padre. And I'm bound to say nobody could have been more willing to help. He labelled his dug-out 'The Vicarage.' One day two men belonging to a draft fresh out from home -- Cockneys they were -- came along that trench. "Look here, Bill, blimey if 'ere ain't a blooming vicarage!' said one to the other. Out pops the padre at that, with half his face lathered, as he was having a shave at the time. 'Yes,' said he, 'and here's the blooming vicar. What can I do for you?' Imagine how the Tommies looked! They say that padre applied officially to be appointed 'Chaplain of the Trenches.' Well, he was one of us all right."

Damage Estimated at £100,000.

The most extensive fire in Londonderry for over a generation occurred early on Sabbath morning at the patent still distillery of David Watt & Co., Ltd. The distillery is the second largest in Ireland. The first intimation of the fire was a terrific explosion, which was heard over the whole city, and smashed many windows in the neighbourhood. A wall was blown down, and later the body of a baker named Burns was found in the ruins. He was passing home from work when the wall collapsed. The explosion is attributed to accumulation of vapour. Almost immediately the larger part of the works section was in flames. The explosion roused the works manager, Mr. Isaac Rudd, who lives quite close by. He ran down and organised the distillery's fire brigade, and had three lines of hose playing when the Derry Brigade arrived. At his request the police called out 300 Inniskilling Fusiliers with the military hose. All day twelve lines of hose were playing on the building. The damage is estimated at £100,000. The destroyed part of the building includes the still houses, the mill, mash house, wash charger house, and engines. Several hundred tons of grain were burned, but owing to the promptness with which the water was got on and to the good direction of the firemen by Mr. Rudd the warehouses containing nearly 100,000 casks of spirits were saved, also the grain store containing several thousand tons of grain. The yeast house was also saved in addition to about 2,000 tons of coal. Two enormous vats of spirits were run off into more distant vats in time to save the contents. Three hundred men have been thrown out of employment as the result of the fires.


It was mentioned at Belfast Corporation meeting that the Tramways and Electricity Committee had contributed £75,200 towards an investment by the Finance Committee in Treasury Bills. On the Public Health Committee's report, Alderman Dr. King Kerr remarked that the deathrate from typhoid, 0.2, was the lowest on record.



Mr. H. Hunt, Superintendent, Great Central Railway, has been appointed secretary and general manager of the Lough Swilly Railway.

It is officially announced that an explosion occurred on Tuesday morning in a small explosives factory in South London. Seventeen persons were slightly injured.

At the annual meeting of the Clyde Navigation Trust, held in Glasgow, it was reported that the revenue for the year amounted to almost £706,000, an increase of £58,000 on last year.

The Exchequer returns from 1st April to 2nd September show that the receipts were £133,268,826 and the expenditure £754,391,748. For the corresponding period of last year the receipts, were £86,318,131 and the expenditure £534,325,822.

The meeting of the .British Association at Newcastle-on-Tyne was, inaugurated on Tuesday night with the presidential address by Arthur Evans, who dealt with the origins of civilisations as revealed by archaeological research. The Honourable Sir C. A. Parsons has been nominated by the council as president next year.

The rapid passage of the Eight Hours Bill and its signing by the President has saved the United States from the calamitous railway strike threatened. It is pointed out, however, that the affair is merely postponed until it is seen by the men's delegates how completely the good will of the President towards causing an adjustment of differences can be carried out.

Russian subjects of military age in this country are permitted by their Government to serve in the British army, and are invited to enlist directly for immediate service or by attestation until September 30. After that date the question whether it is necessary to adopt further measures to deal with the Russian subjects in Great Britain who do not enlist or attest will be considered.

Addressing representatives of workmen on the Clyde at Glasgow, Mr. Balfour eulogised the efforts which had been made by shipyard workers and others in that district who were engaged in war work. He called, however, for still greater efforts in the production both of warships and ships of commerce. Mr. Sharpe, of the Boilermakers' Society, said Mr. Balfour's words would not fall on deaf ears. They would endeavour to double their efforts.

Great animation and occasional scenes marked the proceedings of the Trades Union Congress at Birmingham. The principal discussion arose out of a reference in the Parliamentary Committee's report to correspondence with the president of the American Federation of Labour, and to a recommendation that British trades unionists should co-operate in holding an international congress at the same time and place as the meeting of the plenipotentiaries who will be arranging the terms of peace. Several delegates entered vigorous protests against any conference with German democrats until German methods of warfare had been disavowed and atonement made for the violation of the usages of civilised warfare. After some recrimination and a good deal of uproar a motion to delete the words contained in the report was carried by 1,485,000 against 723,000.


Rev. Wm. M'Nutt, Hillhall, Lisburn, who has seen considerable active service, has relinquished his commission as temporary chaplain, and has returned home.

The death, aged seventy-three, has occurred at British Columbia, of Mr. J. M. Barkley, who was formerly a member of the firm of W. M. Barkley & Sons, Belfast.

About £12,000 have been expended by the Great Northern Railway Co. in renovating and improving Portadown passenger station, which is now one of the finest in the Kingdom.

The death has occurred at Templeport Rectory, Bawnboy, of the Rev. W.A. Roe. Prior to his appointment in 1907? to Bawnboy, he held curacies at Carlingford, Belfast, and Killinkere.

A meeting of flax mill owners of the Newry and Rathfriland districts fixed 9d per stone as the price to be paid to scutchers in the season now opening, and agreed that 1s 9d per stone be charged to growers.

While the Rev. J. H. Lucas, rector of Kilchiney, County Armagh, was cycling home after service on Sabbath he fell off his machine and received serious injuries to his head. He was promptly conveyed home, where he received medical treatment.

Rev. J. Crozier, M.A., son of the Lord Primate, has returned from Salonica, where he has been acting as chaplain, and will shortly return to his parish work at Celbridge. Mr. Crozier took part in the Dardanelles campaign, and has been at Salonica during the spring and summer.

Captain Wm. A. Redmond, M.P., is in a London hospital disabled, from the front. While going to the trenches he missed his footing in the dark, and fell eight or ten feet into a communication trench, dislocating his shoulder, breaking his collar bone, and hurting his ankle. He is likely to be unfit for active service for some weeks.

The Lord Lieutenant has intimated to the North Down Agricultural Committee that he has received with much satisfaction their resolution expressing the hope that his re-appointment is a token of the prospect of the complete restoration of law and order in Ireland, and that he would be able to afford that practical interest in the prosperity of the country which he had already displayed.

Mr. W. A. Kearney, naval warrant officer, son of Mr. W. Kearney, Cliftonville, Belfast, while attempting to recover his cap, which had blown off, overbalanced and fell from the North Bridge, Edinburgh, to the pavement below, a distance of fifty feet. Death was instantaneous. Mr. Kearney served in the Battle of Jutland, and had a fine service record.

Belfast Chamber of Commerce Council has passed a resolution asking that an essential condition of peace should he the surrender of Germany of a ton per ton of merchant shipping of equal value as a compensation for vessels of the British mercantile marine destroyed by German warcraft. The Council tendered thanks to Sir E. Carson for his influence in the passage of the Uniform Time Bill.

At Tuesday's meeting of the Belfast Harbour Board, the Right Hon. Robert Thompson, M.P., chairman, announced that negotiations had been completed with Messrs. Harland & Wolff for the letting of over forty-one acres of additional land for shipbuilding purposes and other kindred works. This would increase the revenue of the Board by £2,500 a year. Negotiations were proceeding with Messrs. Workman, Clark, & Co., who desire additional land to increase their shipbuilding.

Mr. William Mackenzie, of Victoria Terrace, Downpatrick, third officer of the Harrison liner Collegian, has been awarded a silver medal by the President of the French Republic in recognition of his services assisting in the lifeboat work performed at the rescue of the passengers and crew of the French liner Euphiate, which went ashore on the island of Socotra on 11th September last. Mr. Mackenzie handled the boat of which he was in charge with great skill in a heavy sea, and was instrumental in saving many lives.

The high price of coal and its detrimental influence upon industries and gas production was under consideration at the meeting of the Antrim County Council on Tuesday, when the following resolution on the subject, to be forwarded to the Board of Trade, was passed -- "That we view with the gravest apprehension the present condition of the coal supply to Ireland, being convinced that unless some means of obtaining a proper supply at reasonable prices, including carriage, can be discovered, serious inconvenience and distress will be sustained by the poorer classes throughout the country during the coming winter, and many industries will be obliged to shut down. We urge upon the Government the extreme and immediate necessity for regulating price of coal and of coal freights."



At Tuesday's meeting of the Antrim County Council a discussion was inaugurated on this subject, Mr. Barbour emphasising the pressing importance of giving it immediate practical attention. The country, he stated, was almost denuded of timber, and few trees were being planted to meet future demands. In view of this fact he thought that Council should take steps to bring the matter before the Rural District Councils, who in turn would urge upon the people in their respective areas the necessity of planting trees on their properties. Mr. Miscampbell remarked that the shortage of timber was becoming a serious problem, and one which they should face and solve by carrying out a general reafforestation scheme. It was finally decided to forward to the different Rural Councils a letter bearing on the subject.



Mr. James Knox Anderson Robb, of Charleville, Bushey Bark, Ballyskeagh, County Down, merchant, who died on the 23rd March last, left personal estate in the United Kingdom valued at £19,427 8s 8d, of which £1,216 10s 3d is in England.

The remains of the late Mr. Samuel Jameson, who died from the effects of the motor accident in Dublin on last Saturday, were removed from his residence, Franshaw, Crumlin, on Tuesday, for interment in the Crumlin Churchyard. The Rev. J. C. Johnston, M.A., of whose church deceased was senior elder; Rev. Dr. Phipps, Rector of the parish; Rev. J. L. Morrow, M.A., and Rev. G. T. C. Clements, B.A., conducted the funeral service. At the graveside Rev. J. C. Johnston gave a brief address. The sudden and startling and hard manner of their friend's death was for the glory of God, for the service and help of His Kingdom, to teach its lessons. They all knew the indefatigable industry of the man in all matters connected with the labour and service of this present life. He illustrated the obedience of that command, "Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might." God will have no slackers, nor will He bless the wasteful or the indolent. But the most remarkable thing about their deceased friend was that he was equally diligent, energetic, earnest, and punctual in the service of God. Although residing four miles from the House of God, he allowed no weariness of body and no adverseness of weather to hinder him from being present twice every Lord's Day to worship God. Surely this was and is both reasonable and right. If we believe in God at all, and in the soul, and in the here-! after, surely we should give to the service of God, at least as much diligence as we give to the service of the. world, as much I care to the health and nourishment of the soul as to the body, as much forethought and provision for eternity as we do for time, The last trait of his character was his kindliness and gentleness. He spent his last earthly Sabbath in the House of God, and his last act there was to guide the feet of a blind man, the way out to the street.

The entire session and almost all the office-bearers of Lower Abbey Street Presbyterian Church, Dublin, were present at the funeral.



On Wednesday, the 23rd ult., Mr. Dunn, the popular and much-respected principal teacher of Wilson N.S., Raphoe, was made the recipient of a handsome presentation. His numerous friends in the locality seized the opportunity, on the occasion of his removal to a new sphere of labour, to present him with a slight token of their esteem. A deputation of gentlemen -- Messrs. Whyte, Russell, and Kilpatrick -- waited at Mr. Dunn's residence on that evening, and in the presence of a few friends presented him with a cheque. Mr. Kilpatrick, in a few well-chosen remarks, stated briefly for what purpose they had met, and expressed his sorrow at Mr. Dunn's departure. He then called upon Mr. Russell to make the presentation, and that gentleman having fulfilled this pleasant duty, Mr. Whyte next made a neat and happy speech, in which he referred to his close friendship with Mr. Dunn. He ably voiced the sentiments of all his well-wishers when he expressed his deep regret at the departure of Mr. Dunn and his family from Raphoe. Mr. Whyte, concluded by wishing them all success and prosperity in their new home. Mr. Dunn suitably replied in a few words, thanking the deputation for their presentation, and saying that he valued the gift more for the motives prompting the givers than for the actual monetary value. He also spoke of his sorrow at parting from so many true and tried friends in Raphoe. Mr. and Mrs. Dunn then entertained their friends to supper, and at a late hour they separated, after having spent a most enjoyable evening.



The death of Mr. James Carr, senior director of the Ulster Bank, Ltd., occurred on Friday at his residence, Rathowen, 35, Windsor Avenue, Belfast, in his 88th year. The sad event removes a distinguished figure in Irish banking circles. Mr. Carr was for more than seventy years associated with the Ulster Bank, and was the oldest bank director in Ireland. He came to Belfast in his seventeenth year from Killyleagh, where his father was a gentleman farmer, and entered the service of the Ulster Bank, which at that time had only been established about ten years, and was not the prosperous concern it now is, with branches in all parts of Ireland. He showed remarkable aptitude for banking affairs, and his career was marked by quick promotion. He was appointed secretary in 1862, and six years later became general manager. He was appointed a director in 1873, as successor to Mr. Thomas Ringland, his brother-in-law, and he retained his position on the directorate for a period of no less than forty-three years. He was keenly inte-. rested in the progress and development of the commercial life not only of Belfast, but of the whole of Ireland; yet he took no prominent part in public affairs. He was a member of the Unitarian Church. He is survived by four sons and four daughters.



The funeral took place on Tuesday of Mr. David Rea, when his remains were interred in Portadown Cemetery. The deceased, whose home was at Parkview Villas, Sydenham, spent practically all his lifetime in preaching the Gospel to the people in tents and halls and in the open air, and his labours were attended with great success. He was a ready speaker, and possessed a very intimate knowledge of the Scriptures. Mr. Rea was born in Portadown district, and he is survived by two sons, one of whom is engaged in evangelistic work in the West of Ireland. The deceased died on Saturday at Spa, Ballynahinch, and the funeral, which was by motor, arrived in Belfast from the Spa at 11-45, making,a stop at his son's residence, 88, Ravenscroft Avenue, where a service was held. A very large gathering of mourners followed in the cortege through the city, and many tokens of respect were also observable at Lisburn, Lurgan, and Portadown. The funeral arrangements were in the hands of Messrs. Melville & Co., Townsend Street, Belfast, and were admirably carried out.



The death has occurred, at his residence, Ardcarne, Donemana, of Dr. Andrew Woods Smyth, in his eighty-fourth year. Born at Castlederg, Dr. Smyth settled in New Orleans in 1849, where he practised for over forty years. On his retirement twenty-two years ago he returned to his native land. He was widely known throughout the medical world, being the author of a couple of medical books -- "Collateral Circulation of Aneurism" and "Structure and Function of the Kidney." Appleton's Cyclopaedia of American Biography, in a tribute to his eminence as a surgeon, mentions that in 1864 he performed the first and only recorded operation of tieing successfully the alteria innominta for sub-clavian aneurism. He also made the first reduction of a dislocation of the femur of over nine months' duration. Other notable operations in connection with the kidney are recorded. Dr. Smyth married in New Orleans Miss Nathalie Bouligny, of Louisiana. He leaves one daughter, the wife of the Rev. D. Hay, M.A., the Manse, Donemana.




The street improvement scheme carried out by the Belfast Corporation has given a stimulus to enterprise and an enhanced beauty to our leading thoroughfares. The Cromac Street area, once narrow and congested, will soon be a wide and spacious avenue. Mr. J. B. Skelly's new and imposing drapery premises in this leading street at once arrest the admiration of the architectural connoisseur and the interest of the discreet domestic speculator. It is an emporium worthy of new Belfast, and commensurate with the requirements of a community where the up-to-date is appreciated, and where specialisation is valued at its true worth. Mr. Skelly is no exponent of antiquated commercial fictions. He has a modern and a master mind, with an outlook unfettered by prejudice, and, accordingly, he is always aiming after something better than has been hitherto achieved. The new premises, appropriately designated "Victoria Buildings," are the embodiment of his own idea, and visitors to the establishment will agree that the scheme is an excellent one. There are five distinct "shops" within the domain of this large drapery house, each allocated to a particular section, and the whole embracing a range of personal and household requisites adequate for any and every purpose. This departmental system commends itself for many reasons, but preeminently for the fact that each department had its own line of goods. To be more specific -- ladies' outfitting, dresses and drapery, gentlemen's outfitting, house furnishings, and boots are carried on within separate spheres, so that none of the misconceptions and disappointments arise which have often been a subject of satire or rebuke. You know where to go, you give your order, and, after having your demand satisfied, you pass out or on to the next department, as the case may be. The new shop has features both exceptional and attractive. The windows, magnified by an elaborate utilisation of mirrors, show off the goods to perfection; the artificial lighting, throughout the day and the electric lighting at night are all that could be desired; and there is a roominess about the place which is accentuated by the glass roofs and the internal loftiness of the structure. In addition to those and other characteristics, Victoria Buildings has suites of both fitting-rooms and offices, and the house altogether is entitled to a leading place in the category of our chief business concerns.

Mr. J. B. Skelly, whose name is not infrequently abbreviated to the two initials, "J. B." (especially in trade circles, where his popularity is pronounced), has assimilated the attributes of a shrewd, far-seeing business director. After some experience in the Primatial City, where he carried on business in conjunction with his brother, he came to Belfast. Here the family trade alliance was perpetuated at 42 and 48, Great Edward street, until fifteen years ago, when the partnership was mutually dissolved. Mr. J. B. Skelly continued to carry on the business, and his opportunity for expansion came with the acquisition of the ground on which he built his present fine house, If "'tis not in mortals to command success," Mr. Skelly at least deserves it. He has the accommodation and the goods; he is surrounded by a bevy of assistants alert, courteous, and obliging, and, within sight of the city markets, the entire rural population of the district come within the zone of his activities.

It is a fact of national as well as of local interest that Mr. Skelly is one of those who believes thoroughly in the pre-eminence of Irish manufacture and in the policy of supporting home industry to the fullest extent possible. His buying is done, not with foreign countries, where distance lends an often spurious enchantment to the view, but in the capital of the North or the metropolis of Ireland. He buys, too, in the best markets, and the retail customer shares the advantage that necessarily results from such judicious investment. The pioneers of the industrial movement in this country have always advocate the giving of priority to the native article where price and quality justify the preference, and this is undoubtedly one sure way of creating employment at home and stimulating the manufacturing activities within the four provinces of Ireland. The interests of the business community and the welfare of those engaged in its operations have never escape the solicitude of Mr. Skelly, who was one of the original founders of the Chamber of Trade, and is the present vice-president of that organisation which was instrumental in securing the weekly half-holiday and other ameliorations. In addition to all these many-sided duties in the public weal, our enterprise citizen is on the directorate of one of the most flourishing manufacturing concerns in the North.

Three Awarded V.C.


Amongst the twenty heroes who have been awarded the Victoria Cross, three were connected with the Ulster Division, but, unfortunately, two of the recipients have not lived to receive the rewards of their valour. The names are:--

Lieut. Geoffrey St. George Shillington Cather, late Royal Irish Fusiliers, for most conspicuous bravery. From 7 p.m. till midnight he searched "No Man's Land," and brought in three wounded men. Next morning, at 8 a.m., he continued his search, brought in another wounded man, and gave water to others, arranging for their rescue later. Finally, at 10-30 a.m., he took out water to another man, and was proceeding further on when he was himself killed. All this was carried out in full view of the enemy, and under direct machine gun fire and intermittent artillery fire. He set a splendid example of courage and self-sacrifice.

No. 14/18278 Pte. William Frederick M'Fadzean, late Royal Irish Rifles. For most conspicuous bravery. While in a concentration trench and opening a box of bombs for distribution prior to an attack, the box slipped down into the trench, which was crowded with men, and two of the safety pins fell out. Private M'Fadzean, instantly realising the danger to his comrades, with heroic courage threw himself on the top of the bombs. The bombs exploded, blowing him to pieces, but only one other man was injured. He well knew his danger, being himself a bomber, but without a moment's hesitation he gave his life for his comrades.

No. 12/18645 Pte. Robert Quigg, Royal Irish Rifles. For most conspicuous bravery. He advanced to the assault with his platoon three times. Early next morning, hearing a rumour that his platoon officer was lying out wounded, he went out seven times to look for him under heavy shell and machine gun fire, each time bringing back a wounded man. The last man he dragged in on a waterproof sheet from within a few yards of the enemy's wire. He was seven hours engaged in this most gallant work, and finally was so exhausted that he had to give it up.


Lieutenant Cather was an Ulsterman by descent, his parents being North of Ireland people, although he himself was born in London twenty-five years ago. He was a son of the late Mr. R. G. Cather, of Limpsfield, Surrey, and Mrs. Cather, who reside at Priory Park, Hampstead, and is a daughter of the late Mr. Thomas Shillington, J.P., Tavanagh House, Portadown. Mr. Cather's father, the late Rev. Robert Cather, LL.D., was a prominent Methodist minister in Belfast and other centres in the last century.

The late Private M'Fadzean was a son of Mr. Wm. M'Fadzean, Rubicon, Cregagh (of Messrs. Johnston, Allen's), and was born at Lurgan on 9th October, 1895. He came to Belfast in infancy, and was educated at Mountpottinger National School, and the Trade Preparatory School of the Municipal Technical Institute, and entered the services of Messrs. Spence, Bryson, & Co., Ltd., linen manufacturers, Great Victoria Street, from which he joined the Army in September, 1914. He was a member of the 1st Batt. East Belfast Regiment Ulster Volunteer Force, and passed from it into one of the battalions of the Royal Irish Rifles raised in response to the call to the Volunteers to join a division. Rugby football was one of his favourite recreations, Collegians being his club. He was a member of Newtownbreda Presbyterian Church (Rev. Dr. Workman's), which has now one V.C. and four Military Crosses to its credit, and was also a member of the Central Presbyterian Association.

Rev. Dr. Workman, referring to deceased's bravery at the morning service in Newtownbreda Church last Sabbath, said the public recognised that William M'Fadzean was a distinguished soldier of the splendid Ulster Division. "But we have," he added, "the comfort and joy of knowing that he was a good soldier of Jesus Christ. He was a lad endowed with great natural ability, and of a most genial and lovable disposition. God placed him in a home where he was brought up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. Before leaving that home he professed his faith in Christ, and sat down with his people at the Lord's table. His mother had given him a soldier's Testament, which he kept always in his tunic, and from which he and his like-minded chum regularly read a portion nightly."

Private Robert Quigg, Royal Irish Rifles, is another U.V.F. man. He hails from Carnkirk, Bushmills, and is a son of Mr. Robert Quigg, a guide at the Giant's Causeway. Born on March 1, 1885, he was educated at the local National School, and subsequently worked for local farmers. Enlisting at Ballymoney early in the war, he served with his regiment at Clandeboye and Newtownards before going to the front with the Ulster Division. He is a man of splendid physique and great strength, and the deeds that he performed on the memorable 1st July are still the talk of the regiment. The officer whom he sought to rescue was Sir Harry Macnaghten, who resided in the same district of North Antrim, and to whom he was well known personally. Lady Macnaghten has written his parents that Private Quigg behaved splendidly, bringing in seven wounded men. Quigg was a member of L.O.L. 1195, and a private in the North Antrim Regiment of the Ulster Volunteer Force before he joined the war. He is a member of the Episcopalian Church.

In a letter to Mr. Alexander Dinsmore, Bushmills the company sergeant-major of Private Quigg, V.C., says -- "During the King's visit to France Private Quigg was paraded before his Majesty. The King asked him where he came from, shook him by the hand, and said, "You are a very brave man."


Sir Edward Carson has forwarded the following telegram in appreciation of the three new Ulster V.C.'s:-- "Our hearts beat with pride at the heroism and self-sacrifice of our noble V.C.'s. The whole Empire will deserve to thank them, and all others who have so nobly fought for their beloved country."

Details of his gallant death are in hand in a letter to the bereaved mother from the commanding officer, who wrote "One of the small trenches was hit and the men inside it buried. Your son went to help digging them out, as they were buried in the debris, and succeeded in getting them out, but as he was coming back he saw another trench mortar coming over, and ran for shelter in a mine shaft, which got a direct hit, and he was buried. We dug him out with all speed, but he must have been killed instantaneously. During the short time he was here he was very popular with his men, and had the makings of a most promising soldier. I deeply regret his loss, and wish to add my most sincere sympathy in the very great loss you have sustained, and wish to add that he was performing a gallant deed when it occurred. He was buried this afternoon (25th August), with all military honours which it is possible to give under the circumstances." Rev. J. K.

Dr. Wright, Newtownards), in regard to the death in action of one brother and the wounding of another in the great push at the Somme on the 1st of July:-- "While the South of Ireland, during July, witnessed the execution of Roger Casement on the charge of conspiring with the enemies of Great Britain to forment rebellion in a part of the kingdom, 36,000 men of the Ulster Covenant have been in action. These loyal Irish troops have taken part in the fierce fighting that has been almost continuous for weeks. Widespread sympathy is expressed for Rev. Archibald R. Wright, pastor of the Endeavour Presbyterian Church, of Chicago, whose brothers have fallen in the recent offensive of the Allies on the Somme River. Second-Lieutenant M. J. Wright, of 14th Battalion Royal Irish Rifles, is reported on the list just published as 'killed in action,' and Lieutenant William M. Wright, of the 13th Battalion Royal Irish Rifles, is also reported as 'wounded.' Both officers are sons of Rev. Dr. William Wright, of Newtownards, Co. Down, Ireland, who has two other sons serving in the naval forces of Britain, and so far reported safe."

We regret to announce the death of Mrs. Irwin, widow of the late Mr. Alex. Irwin, of Church Street, Coleraine. The sad event took place suddenly, at her residence, Analone Road, Clones. Though old and frail her general health had been good, and she had been able to be out at church the day before she died. On the Monday she took suddenly ill and passed quietly away as she sat in her armchair. She was a woman of true piety. Greatly did she love and greatly was she loved. She loved God, His Word, and His house. Unable to go to church for some years owing to infirmity, it was a great joy to her when for a few Sundays she was able once again to go up to the house of God. "If it be such a joy," she said, "to worship in the sanctuary below, what must it be in the sanctuary above?" Sooner than she thought she was to be in the upper sanctuary; but the harvest was ripe, and the reaper thrust in his sickle. God's finger touched her and she slept." She is not dead; she lives. We say of her, "She is gone;" others say, "She has come." "Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord, for they rest from their labours anil their works do follow them." The funeral was private, the remains being interred in the family burying-ground at Macosquin, Revs. Samuel Currie (Clones) and W. J. M'Farland (Coleraine) officiating. The chief mourners were Messrs. Alex. Irwin, LL.D. (son); Archibald Irwin (brother-in-law), John Shiels and John R. Martin (nephews), Joseph Marshall, Harry Mitchell, Daniel Cunningham, Samuel Cunningham, and William Cunningham. To the bereaved family we tender our sincere sympathy.



We regret to announce the recent death of Mr. Charles Stewart, of Greenhill Loughmorne. Deceased, who was known as the Grand Old Man of the district, was in his ninety-ninth year, and was beloved by all who knew him, his eminently Christian character raising him high in the regard and reverence of all. He was at one time precentor in Loughmorne Presbyterian Church; he had been an elder of the church for upwards of half-a-century. He sat under the teachings of the Rev. John Paul, D.D., when the Loughmorne Church was a unit of the Eastern Reformed Presbyterian Church; Rev. Wm. Close, Rev. W. Lundie, and Rev. S. M. Shaw. In the time of the Rev. Wm. Close, when the movement originated to have the congregation taken over by the General Assembly, Mr. Stewart was one who gave hearty support to this step. From early years a sincere Christian, in the year 1859 -- the year of the Irish Revival -- he became more deeply imbued with religious feeling than ever, and he took a more active interest in the work of the church. He took part in the Revival, assisting in the local prayer-meetings, and in every way possible helping in the good work. He devoted much time to visiting the sick, and was especially interested in his old schoolfellows, often going long distances to see them, and to read and pray with them. Right up almost to the end Mr. Stewart continued his exemplary career, always exercising diligence in his own business, and at the same time wielding a useful and beneficial influence in the district. Up till seven weeks ago, when he met with an accident, which eventually resulted, in his death, his intellect remained clear and vigorous. He never relaxed his interest in the affairs of the church, and of the Presbyterian Church generally, and he followed public affairs closely. The funeral, which took place to Loughmorne Graveyard, was largely attended.

A meeting of Court Ward Chrysanthemum Committee was held 127, Old Lodge Road. Mrs. Emily Armstrong, who presided, said with all the war funds very little had been done for our sailors, although these men had stood the brunt of defending our coasts and enabled our supplies to come in regularly. They had also numerous appeals to assist those permanently wounded soldiers who had been so much disfigured that they were past recognition. Various schemes had been got up on the Continent to instruct and teach these men to do something in the shape a trade, so that they might spend the rest of their lives in some secluded spot and have something to occupy their mind. With this object in view, and recollecting the record day established by the Ulster Horticultural Society and its friends in running Chrysanthemum Day last year, the same body had decided to have another Chrysanthemum Day for the sailors and permanently wounded soldiers; and as Court Ward was in he premier position last year, she appealed to those present to make this effort as great a success. (Applause.)

We regret to announce the sudden death of Mr. Samuel Hood, J.P., chairman of the Ballymena Urban Council, which took place at his residence, Mill Street, Ballymena, on Sunday night. The deceased gentleman, who carried on an extensive business as an auctioneer and valuer, took a deep and practical interest in the welfare of the community in which he lived, and was prominently identified with every movement which was calculated to advance the prosperity of the town. He was chairman of the Urban Council for a considerable number of years, and his services in this capacity were greatly appreciated by his fellow-members and the townspeople generally. An uncompromising Unionist, he was a member of the Ulster Unionist Council, and frequently attended the deliberations of that body. He took a prominent part in the formation and organisation of the local regiment of the U.V.F., and since the outbreak of the war worked indefatigably to obtain recruits for the army. The various war funds had in him a liberal supporter and warm advocate. By religion he was a Presbyterian, and was a member of the committee of First Ballymena congregation.

The service in Broadway Presbyterian Church on Sabbath evening was conducted by Captain and Adjutant George Thompson, 12th Battalion R.I.R., in the presence of a very large congregation. Captain Thompson, who was formerly a member of Broadway Church, and was a student for the ministry previous to enlistment, has been two years in the Army. He is at present home on leave, having been wounded in the big push on July 1. In the course of a very interesting address he paid a warm tribute to the heroism of the Ulster Division, and related some marked instances of heroism on the part of the soldiers on July 1 and succeeding days. He strongly appealed to those present who were eligible to come forward and do their duty. The honour of the 1st July attack belonged to the men at the front, and not to those who stayed at home, and, whilst Broadway had sent a good number out, he felt there were still others who should be wearing the King's uniform, and were not.

He would be delighted to welcome them when he went out to still further do his bit for his King and country.



Providing Additional Beds.

The War Office have, as a result of the recent inspection, requested the committee of this hospital to provide additional accommodation for wounded soldiers. The committee have arranged to erect and equip another wing to provide accommodation for 100 beds for ordinary cases and fifty beds for limbless cases. To meet the heavy expenditure incurred the committee will have at an early date to again appeal to the public for their support, and as we are sure the citizens will appreciate the high compliment which has been paid to the hospital, they will come to the aid of the committee in assisting them to carry put the wish of the War Office.

At Coleraine Petty Sessions the Department of Agriculture summoned Murphy Glenn, farmer, Doey Beg, Coleraine, for neglecting to destroy noxious weeds on his lands within the prescribed time for removing them. The allegation was that defendant, had allowed thistles to seed on his land at Windyhall. For the defence, Mr. MacLaughlin contended that the weeds were cut before they had seeded, and that defendant, having taken land for six months' grazing, he was not the legal occupier of the holding. The magistrates were unanimous in imposing a nominal fine of 1s and costs, and the Chairman (Mr. C. J. Dempsey) remarked that some of them were of opinion that the Department was not fully doing its duty in regard to noxious weeds.



The death of this gentleman, who worthily filled the office of eldership in Pettigo Presbyterian Church for a very considerable number of years, removes from our midst one of the oldest and most respected members. He had been in failing health for some time, and passed peacefully away on the 15th inst. Although seventy-seven years of age, he possessed wonderful strength and vitality until this closing illness came upon him. At the morning service on the following Sabbath the Rev. A. Duff, in referring to his death, said that he (the deceased) had been one of the main instruments in bringing him there; and he had never wavered in his allegiance and support. He was a man who did not like publicity; but there were many little acts of goodness and thoughtfulness which live in the memory, and will sweeten many an hour. He occupied a respectable position in their church as elder, and he (the speaker) had met very few who felt their responsibilities as such, and who discharged them better. His home was a kindly one, full of good cheer and affection. And their hearts went out to her that day who specially mourned his loss, for she will surely miss him. His life was a shining example to his household, and his one aim and desire and prayer for his children was that they might be led into the fold of the Good Shepherd. He was a man who did his business quietly, and surely his record was honourable. Perhaps that was the best way to express it, he was honourable in all, his dealings, and most industrious in all the works of his hands. He earnestly desired the welfare of that congregation, was most regular in his attendance at public worship. His presence cheered them, his word of encouragement gave them new heart. The old story of the Gospel thrilled his soul and as he lived so he died. In his days of weakness he never complained, his faith never wavered; the all sufficiency of the Saviour was his constant theme, and he died as he lived, trusting in Jesus. Just a little before he passed away he expressed a great longing to get home -- to his heavenly home.

The funeral took place on the Monday to Carn burying-ground, when the chief mourners were Quartermaster-Sergeant Geo. Hilliard, R.I.R., and Thos. Hilliard (sons). A third son is in Canada, to whom much sympathy goes out.



The death has occurred at his residence, Grasmere, Holywood, of Mr. Robert Knox Kerr. Deceased, who was seventy-two years of age, was a staunch Presbyterian and a convinced Unionist, although never taking public active concern in politics, preferring the quiet of his home to the turbulence of public life. He was deeply interested in mission work, especially in the foreign field service, and unobtrusively rendered unstinted material assistance to this enterprise, to him an essential unit of successful Church organisation. His health had been somewhat impaired for the past six months. He is survived by his widow, with whom deep sympathy will be felt.

In the death of Mr. Thomas Armstrong, of Eden Hall, Portadown, on the 18th., there has passed away a remarkable man. His intellect and business capacity were of no ordinary type; and notwithstanding his great age (he was in his ninety-eighth year) up to a few weeks before his death he had all the daily papers read to him, and took the keenest interest in all that was going on in the world. His personality was a strong one, upright and dependable in all his dealings. He was a man who feared God, trusting Him with a simple faith, and dying peacefully in that faith.



Berry Street Presbyterian Church has suffered the loss of an elder in the death of Mr. Samuel Diamond, at his residences, Crumlin Terrace. The deceased who was about seventy-five years of age, had been in failing health for the past few weeks, but developing more serious symptoms about ten days ago and passed away peacefully on the evening of Monday last. Mr. Diamond was one of a generation who are all too quickly disappearing. Born in the district of Hillhall, Lisburn, in home typical of that sturdy Presbyterian which has done so much for our Ulster province, he spent his boyhood amid scenes natural and spiritual, which left an abiding impression on his mind and heart. During the greater part of his life until his retirement about ten years ago, he was in the service of the Brookfield Linen Co., Ltd., where his sterling honesty and faithfulness won for his universal esteem. At an early date he became attached to the congregation of Berry Street under the ministry of the late Dr. Crawford and he continued to worship with unfailing regularity till within a few days of his death. Being richly endowed with a fright, amiable disposition, he was one of the most lovable men. For thirty years he filled the office of ruling elder, and faithfully discharged the various duties of his office in private and public. Few men took such an interest in the affairs of his congregation and Church. He was proud of his Church, and never grudged her his service, no matter at what cost. In Berry Street congregation he acted as convener for the Sustentation Fund for about a quarter of a century, and succeeded in awakening and sustaining a general interest in the fund by his unfaltering zeal and perseverance. Predeceased by his wife about eight years ago he is survived by two sons -- Mr. Robt. Diamond and Mr. S. J. Diamond, LL.D., both wellknown solicitors, and three daughters.

The remains of the deceased were laid to rest yesterday afternoon in the family burying-ground, Drumbo, near by the beautifully situated farmstead of Hill Hall, in which he saw first the light of day. At the wish of family the funeral was of a private character. At the home, before the funeral set out for Drumbo, an impressive service was conducted in the presence of a numerous gathering of the relatives by the Rev. Samuel Hanna[?], minister of the Berry Street congregation. The chief mourners were -- Mr. Robert Diamond and Mr. Samuel James Diamond, LL.D. (sons); Messrs. M'Master and Millar (brothers-in-law), Mr. Samuel Dobbin and Mr. Geo. Johnston (sons-in-law), Messrs. Samuel Dobbin and Robert Dobbin (grandsons), Messrs. J. Diamond, Edgar Diamond, Oswald Diamond, James M'Master, Wm. M'Gowan, and Rob M'Comb (nephews). The funeral arrangements were ably carried out by the firm of Messrs. Melville & Co., Ltd., Townsend Street, Belfast.
