Pilley's Island

Apr 15th - The back, as it is said, of one of the severest winters on record, is now broken. These few days the pumps are kept going to keep the water out of the mine. Over 15,000 tons of good pyrites are on the surface, and the ore is still increasing in bulk. It is confidently expected to ship fully 60,000 tons over last year. A payday will be welcomed the 20 th inst.

At a meeting held in the school-room last evening it was decided, for the first time, by the Roman Catholic ladies of Pilley's Island to hold a sociable or tea party about the first or second week in May - the proceeds to be devoted to the painting and finishing touches of the new parochial residence. Vocal and instrumental music, etc, will form a very acceptable feature of the affair, which, it is hoped, will prove to be very enjoyable. A new Roman Catholic schoolhouse is wanted here badly. Scribe.

 

Personal

In Memoriam Josiah COLBOURNE, Esq., J.P.

At early morning of April 14th, the above named gentleman passed from Twillingate to his Eternal Rest, at the venerable age of 77 years, and thus another link is broken in the chain of worthy men and women of the older class, who are passing away one after anther, leaving blanks in the home, and community, hard to fill. Mr. COLBOURNE had an honorable career, his earlier life being devoted to commercial pursuits, but for many years he has been a faithful public official, an honorary Justice of the Peace, Relieving Officer and Post Master, and certainly no servant of the Crown did more faithful work, for he verily gave the maximum work for the minimum pay and only a few months ago was he allowed to take a well earned retirement on a very small allowance. His wife predeceased him several years, but three sisters remain, Mrs. J. B. BLANDFORD (S.M)) 74 years; Mrs. Chas. EDWARDS (England) 82 years, and widow Samuel BAIRD (Twillingate) aged 87 years. Nine children and 36 grandchildren are the descendants, so that the name is not likely to die, especially with such a record of long lives in the family tree.

The funeral took place on Sunday afternoon, and the Loyal Orange Association, of which he was a useful member and for several years a responsible official, attended, among the largest rally seen at a funeral for years. The bearers were selected from the Royal Scarlet Chapter of which deceased was a worthy companion, and were - Worthy Companions, William HUGHES, G. ROBERTS, J.W. ROBERTS, G. GARD, I. CHURCHILL and W.J. SCOTT, J.P. St. Peter's Church was crowded, and the very impressive service was conducted by Rev. Canon TEMPLE, R.D., who delivered a touching and appropriate address, paying a well-merited tribute of respect to one, whom (he said) for many years he had known as a loyal churchman, a zealous warden, and true friend, - "Let me die the death of the righteous; and let my last end be like his." Appropriate hymns were heartily sung, the one at the graveside being, "Oh, God, our help in ages past," after which the Orange brethren passed around the grave and dropped the "last token" on the coffin of a departed brother.

"Life is real, life is earnest,
And the grave is not its goal,
Dust thou art; to dust returnest,
Was not spoken of the soul." W.J.S.

 

The City

Little Jack MCCONBREY, aged one year and nine months, son of Mr. and Mrs. A. G. MCCONBREY, was fatally burnt on Tuesday last. How he caught on fire is unknown, but as he was playing in a room, in which was an open grate, he must have gone too near it, and his clothing caught. His screams brought his mother to his side, and in her endeavor to extinguish the flames she was badly burned herself. The little fellow suffered intensely until nine o'clock in the evening, when death mercifully relieved him.

 

The Districts

Eleven men of Conception Bay had Captain Henry DAWE, of the s.s. Grand Lake before the Supreme Court on Circuit at Harbor Grace on Friday, claiming damages for being refused berths to the ice after being promised them. Eight of the men received verdicts for $50 each.

Channel

Apr 29, 1904 - Schooners May Queen, G.S. Jubilee, and Swan have arrived from the frozen pans, but unfortunately with very poor trips. The Gulf seal fishery has therefore been nil so far as the West Coast is concerned.

Schooner Atlanta , from Louisburg , C.B., with general cargo arrive don 20th . This vesslel left Halifax in January, but having put into Louisburg for small quantity of coal was frozen up all winter.

S.S. Mary Hough arrived from St. John's and intermediate ports at 2 a.m. today and sails at 9 a.m. She has been delayed unnecessarily at every port since leaving Burin owing to crew's inexperience of this work, or negligence in performing it. Correspondent.

Alexander Bay

Apr 28th, 1904 - Mr. Louis BRIFFETT lost a fine horse last week, on his way from the railway station. When in the act of crossing the bridge by Mr. BURRY's mill, the sleigh slipped over, taking the horse with it and killing him instantly on the ice. This must be a heavy loss to Mr. BRIFFETT as he lost a horse last fall, and only had this one a few months. It seems that such accidents might be avoided if our road board would take proper interest in things, and see that the bridges were made safe by having them railed. In some places they are not safe for persons to cross in a dark night.

Mr. R.B. STROUD is gone to Glenwood to make a purchase of some oxen or horses for future profit. Mr. STROUD has also made a start on his new shop, which we believe will be a great luxury here. Correspondent.

In Memoriam

It is with deep regret that we announce the death of a dearly beloved friend and neighbor in the person of Mary A., beloved wife of Allan LINAHAN, of North Harbour St. Mary's Bay, which sad event occurred at the residence of her father Mr. Joseph DAVID, of Colinet, on the 7th inst. Deceased is another victim claimed by the great white plague, consumption, from which disease she has suffered much during the past year. Under the care of Dr. MCKENDRICK of Placentia she spent a few months of the winter trusting that medical attendance and change of air would bring relief, but as time passed she learned the worst to which she resigned herself with a courage which only true virtue and religion could produce. At the early age of 32, when life was filled with all that makes it dear ‘twas hard to break its sweetest ties, and return home to die.

Deceased was educated at the Convent, Placentia , and for nine years held the position of teacher at North Harbor . During those days she won by her virtue and kindness the warmest love, that only such true hearted people can give. Her husband is a respected young man of North Harbour and for him in the hour of his sorrow much heartfelt sympathy is given.........Colinet, May 12, 1904

 

The Districts

The little four year old son of Alan BLUNDEN, of Hickman's Harbor, T.B., was drowned there on the 21st inst. Unnoticed by his mother he got out of the house and going to a pond nearby evidently jumped into his father's boat. In some way or other he fell overboard, and after a time when search was made for him, he was found a considerable distance away, floating on the water dead.

Mate GALLACHER of the wrecked Hibernian is reported missing since the storm on Friday and it is thought he has committed suicide. He was in charge of the steamer when she struck, and the thought that he was responsible for the disaster had been preying on his mind, though the Captain and other officers tried to make light of it. Evidently fearing the consequences it is supposed that on Friday night he jumped overboard and ended his life. His body has not yet been recovered.

Quite a large fire occurred at Bell Island on Thursday last, when the large building used by the workmen as a bunkhouse and owned by Mr. W. SHIRRAN was destroyed. It was erected only a few years ago at a coast of $3,000, and at times was occupied by as many as 200 men. At the time of the conflagration 70 men were living in it, and it must have been through some carelessness that the fire occurred. The loss to Mr. SHIRRAN is a heavy one as he had only very little insurance on it.

John O'NEIL, his son Owen, and Richard PENDER, shipped man, were drowned at Renews on Wednesday last. They had left early in the morning to overhaul their traps, and being caught in the storm their boat was upset, and all three met a watery grave. O'NEIL was an elderly man and a dealer of long standing with Messrs. A. GOODRIDGE & Sons. For years he had a schooner of his own, but gave her up this year to go trapping. PENDER belonged to this city and was 25 years of age, his mother, a widow, living on Plank Road.

On Apr 7th Mr. Joseph COLEMAN, together with Messrs. A. JACKAMN, T. DEAN, PITTMAN and another man belonging to Bonne Bay boarded the American schr. Nicholson off Green Point, with the hope of safely navigating her to port either on the Newfoundland or Cape Breton coast. Owing to the vessel being stripped of some of her gear, and the men having but a small supply of provisions, grave fears are entertained for their safety as no tidings have been received of their whereabouts for over a month. All kinds of rumors are afloat. But it was to be hoped nothing of a serious nature may have happened - Western Star.

Charles MUSSIEU, who was for some time sexton of St. Mary's Church, and mail courier between the Post Office and trains, met a very sudden death last Wednesday night. He had conveyed the mail from the east-bound express to the Post Office, and had gone to the Post master's residence, where he expired as soon as he had seated himself. Heart failure is supposed to have been the cause of his death. The deceased, who was 60 years of age, was a native of Port-aux-Basques and came by Bay of Islands about nine years ago. He leaves a wife, three sons and three daughters to mourn their loss. - Western Star.

Mr. And Mrs. G. CURNEW, of Main River , Bay St. George, are mourning the death of their little 5 year old by, who was drowned on Thursday last. The little fellow left home at noon while the family were at dinner, and untied a dory from the shore, and getting into it, it is supposed, became frightened when the dory started drifting with the tide, and must have tumbled overboard. A diligent search was made as soon as the boy was missed, but nothing was found, excepting his boots and cap. Mrs. CURNEW, who is in delicate health, is almost heartbroken over the loss of her child who was a promising little boy. - Western Star.
