Sad and Fatal Accident.
Three Young Fishermen Drowned.
How It Occurred.

From Great St. Lawrence we get particulars of a sad and fatal accident which occurred there on Tuesday last. Writing under date of the 3rd instant, our special correspondent says: - "One of the most unfortunate disasters we have had to lament for a long time happened here two days ago. It was caused by the capsizing of a dory in the harbor. The boat was manned by three fine young fishermen, named, respectively, John Carpenter, of Keels, Bonavista Bay; Henry Duffitt, of Smith's Sound, Trinity Bay, and William Sutton, also of the latter place. The bodies were recovered shortly after the accident, and, having received careful attention at the hands of the kind-hearted people who had charge of them, were interred in the Church of England Cemetery."

CARROLL, Mrs. Mary Ann
Evening Telegram March 25, 1927 (Friday)

On Saturday, March 12th, there occurred at Holyrood the death of a citizen known by many and loved and respected by all, Mrs. Mary Ann Carroll, relict of the late James Carroll, who predeceased her ten years ago, having been called to her reward. The deceased lady who was 63 years old was of a kind and jovial disposition and a cheery smile always illumined her happy countenance. She had been enjoying good health up to a few weeks of her demise, when she was stricken with paralysis. All that medical skill could do to check its in-roads was done, but God willed otherwise and having been fortified with the last rites of her holy church by Rev. Fr. Dinn, her soul winged its flight. Now that her life work is o'er, her dear hands at rest, her relatives and friends one and all will raise their hearts in loving supplication to Our dear Lord that she may be close to His Sacred Heart, receiving from Him, the smile given to a beloved child who served him, faithfully.
Left to mourn are two sons, John J. the well known merchant of Holyrood and Albert J. of New York, also one sister, Mrs. Thomas Ezekiel of New York. Her funeral which was largely attended took place on Monday from her late home to the South Side Cemetery, where her mortal remains were committed to mother earth to await the final summons.
Farewell! And till we meet -
Like star gleams - where no parting comes, or ill,
Spirit of love and life, oh, mother sweet
Be near us still! COM.

CHRISTIAN, Alexander
Daily News    September 8, 1910 (Thursday)

Obituary. There passed away at 2.15 yesterday afternoon at the General Hospital, one of St. John's most respected citizens, Alexander Christian, salesman at Henry Blair's. Mr. Christian was born at Old Perlican fifty-seven years ago, one of a large family, of which only two now survive, Mrs. Pelley of Chicago, and Mr. Arch. Christian of Bowring Bros. staff. His father, the venerable William Christian, J.P. was for many years Stipendiary Magistrate for Southern Trinity Bay, with Old Perlican as his headquarters.
Mr. Alexander Christian was for many years engaged with the old firms of Goodfellow and Blackwood and Blair, but almost throughout his life his health has been far from robust. A quarter of a century ago he was told by a New York specialist that he could live but a few years, yet despite sickness and suffering he remained in harness until a few months ago, when he grew worse, and the only hope seemed to be hospital treatment. Thither at his request he was conveyed, but neither skill nor science could save him. For some weeks he lingered without visible change for better or worse, until a few days ago when he commenced sinking rapidly. Yesterday afternoon the final summons came, and he quietly and peacefully passed away.
Alexander Christian was a good man in the best sense of the word, honest, charitable, sincere. By his death the Methodist Church has lost one of its most faithful and devoted members, St. John's a worthy Christian and citizen, and Old Perlican one of her most worthy sons. His exemplary life is his noblest monument. The funeral takes place on Friday next, from the residence of his niece, Mrs. J.S. Currie, Freshwater Road.
"The memory of the just is blessed."

CHRISTIAN, Archibald H. L.
Daily News September 10, 1936 (Thursday)

At an early hour yesterday death came suddenly to Archibald H. Christian, at his home, Pleasant Street. During the previous evening he had been feeling well as ever, and when he retired there was nothing to indicate that it was for the last time. He had been in bed but an hour or two, however, when he was stricken and in a very short while passed away. It was in the way he expected and wished to die. For some time he had been suffering from a heart affection, and he had been warned that the end might come at an unexpected moment.
The late Archibald Christian was the son of the late William Christian, for some years Magistrate at Old Perlican. When a young man he moved to St. John's and found employment with the firm of Blackwood and Blair with whom he worked until about 1895, when he entered the employ of Bowring Brothers, remaining with that firm until he was pensioned a few years ago. All through the years he served his employers faithfully and efficiently, and was highly regarded by them. His few years of retirement were spent in the companionship of his children and grandchildren.
For years deceased was closely identified with the active and official life of George Street Church. He was a member of its various Boards and his seat in the choir gallery was rarely unoccupied. In his earlier years he was also actively identified with Masonry, and held in high esteem by his brethren of Avalon Lodge. Advancing years - he would have been 78 in April next - necessitated retirement from some of those activities, but his interest in his church never waned. He was a loyal and exemplary citizen, a good man and true, and surely no more honourable sentence could be written on the tomb of any mortal.
Mr. Christian is survived by his wife, one son, Mr. Gordon Christian, who has established himself an enviable position in the local musical world, and four daughters, Mrs. Max Parsons at Montreal, Mrs. F. Peach at Bay Roberts, Mrs. C.M. Williams in the city, and Bessie at home. The funeral will take place to-morrow, Friday, afternoon at 2.30 p.m.

Obituary. Trinity has lost a worthy and honoured son in Mr. George Christian, whose death took place on Thursday. Mr. Christian occupied the position of Sub-Collector at Trinity for several years, retiring about four years ago. In earlier years he played a part in the public life of the Colony, and was a candidate for his native district. At the time, there was considerable bitterness about, and Mr. Christian was on the losing side. It speaks well for his kindness of heart and broadness of spirit, that he always retained the respect and even affection of opponents, as well as friends. As Sub-Collector at Trinity he was zealous, painstaking and courteous, always ready to help those who needed help, and with a cheery word and a ready smile for all. His home was hospitality itself, and if ever a man's heart beat in sympathy with his fellows, and in line of what things make for righteousness, it was that of George Christian. Trinity will greatly miss him, and through his passing, Newfoundland has sustained the loss of one of her worthiest citizens. Mr. Christian leaves a widow and one daughter, Mrs. (Rev.) G.B. Pickering, Sound Island, Placentia Bay.
May the Easter Message of the Resurrection come to them, rich in consolation.

Obituary. There passed peacefully away at Brooklyn, Bonavista Bay, in the home of her only son, Dr. Geo. B. Cross, on the 4th inst., widow Geo. Christian. Deceased was born at Lower Island Cove November 29th, 1846, was the daughter of John Louis, Esq., J.P., of that place where she spent the last four years of her life with her younger sister, the late Mrs. A.G. Hudson. When her son, the doctor, who had been overseas with the Canadian Army returned home and made his home in Brooklyn, he took his mother to whom he was greatly attached, to live with him, but before a month of reunited and contented peaceful life had been lived together the reaper death entered the new home and severed the bond that binds so dear. Mrs. Christian spent the greater part of her life in Trinity where she married first John Cross, Esq., Dr. Cross's father, who for many years occupied the position of book-keeper in the firm of the Messrs. Bremner and was a man respected, and beloved by all who knew him; as was also her second husband, Geo. Christian, Esq., who was customs official at Trinity until his death about 10 years ago.
Deceased was a member of a large family of six sisters and two brothers, John and Herbert Louis, now living at Island Cove, are her brothers. The late Mrs. Alex Marshall of St. John's with whom she spent most of the early part of her life, was a sister. The Marshall family, to whom she became endeared and respected till the last loved their Aunt Christian. She was an excellent woman in her day, a good neighbour and a Christian lady, not only in name but in very deed. According to her earnest desire and entreaty her remains will be taken to Trinity on Thursday, the 7th inst., and interred in the Methodist Cemetery, there to await the morning call of the resurrection. Our sympathies go out to the young doctor and mourning relations and friends, among whom are her step children, Mr. Ronald Cross of St. John's, Mrs. (Rev.) Geo. Pickering of Lower Island Cove, and Mr. Gilbert Christian of Trinity.

The death of Mr. H. Gordon Christian, L.R.A.M., one of St. John's most outstanding musicians occurred at his residence, 173 LeMarchant Rd., Tuesday night after a short illness. Mr. Christian was 47 years old. About two weeks ago he was taken ill with influenza and was unable to be present at the closing exercises of the Prince of Wales College on December 23rd, when he was to have conducted the opera, The Gondoliers, in the Pitts Memorial Hall. It was little thought at the time that his illness would prove fatal, but as he failed to improve and pneumonia set in, grave fears were held for his recovery. On Monday night last he lapsed into unconsciousness but rallied slightly yesterday morning. The end came peacefully shortly after 9 o'clock last night.
The late Mr. Christian was a gifted son of Newfoundland. He early developed a love for the piano and organ and his talent was soon recognized by those under whom he studied. In 1911 he proceeded to England where he studied for two years. On his return to Newfoundland twenty-three years ago he accepted the post as head of the music department of the Methodist College and at about the same time re received the appointment of organist and choirmaster of George Street Methodist Church. Those who witnessed the annual productions in the Pitts Memorial Hall of the operas performed by the scholars under his care, and staged and conducted by him, will realize the loss the community has sustained in his passing. Of the operas he produced the following are the outstanding ones: - Pepin the Pippim, 1930; Boojum of Bagore, 1931; Swami of Bagdad, 1932; H.M.S. Pinafore, 1933; Iolanthe, 1934; The Mikado, 1935 and The Gondoliers, 1936.
Mr. Christian's ability was not only available to "the College" but also to many philanthropic causes. He was the accompanist for the St. John's Male Octette, a group of well-known citizens who raised large sums for charitable purposes a few years ago. He also staged and produced the "Mixed Grill" for Lady Allardyce when a handsome sum was raised for the Girl Guide and Boy Scouts' Association of Newfoundland. As organist and choirmaster of George Street Church his work was outstanding and many have been the occasions on which the congregation of that church have been helped by the beautiful renditions of the choir at the regular services of the church and at other special times. His efforts in raising funds for the church were also well rewarded in the staging of the Jolly Minstrels and the China Shop.
Surviving are his wife, one daughter, Betty; mother; four sisters, Mrs. Max Parsons, Montreal; Mrs. F. Peach, Bay Roberts; Mrs. C.M. Williams, St. John's, and Miss Bessie also residing here to whom much sympathy will be tendered. A funerals service was held at p.m. [sic] Thursday, which was attended by a vast crowd. Interment took place at the General Protestant cemetery.

Funeral Service Largely Attended. Late H.G. Christian Laid to Rest on Thursday
.
One of the largest funerals seen in the city for some time took place on Thursday afternoon when the late H. Gordon Christian, L.R.A.M., one of Newfoundland's gifted sons and leading musicians, was laid to rest at the General Protestant cemetery, following a burial service at George Street United Church where for twenty-three years he served as organist and choirmaster. The church was crowded with citizens representative of all classes who paid their last tribute to a man whom they loved.
At 2.15 p.m. a brief service was held at the home, 173 LeMarchant Road, which was conducted by Rev. A. Allison Rogers, with Rev. G.B. Pickering assisting. The hymn "Abide With Me" was sung to piano accompaniment by Mr. Harry Smith, Mus. Bac., organist of St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church.
The funeral arrangements were in charge of Undertaker Geoffrey Carnell. The route from the home to the church was by way of Patrick Street, Pleasant Street, New Gower Street and Buchanan Street. Leading the procession were the boys of Prince of Wales College, in charge of Mr. J. A. Cochrane, the Principal, and the teaching staff. A hearse banked with beautiful wreaths and flowers followed and immediately behind came the hearse with the casket covered in floral tributes. Six members of the 6th St. John's Troop of Boy Scouts, U.C. College, of which the deceased was Assistant Scoutmaster, attended as a guard of honour, and they walked on either side of the hearse. Then came the chief mourners, and behind were a large concourse of people representative of all walks of life. Along the funeral route many sympathizers assembled at places of vantage to watch the cortege pass.
Impressive Service at Church.
When the funeral arrived at the church, all the pews in the edifice were occupied except those in the centre which had been reserved for the family, relatives of the deceased, and citizens who attended the obsequies. The members of the choir, deeply affected over the sudden passing of their organist, occupied the choir gallery. Mr. H. Smith, Mus. Bac., a close companion of the late Mr. Christian presided at the organ. Members from the Kirk choir assisted in the singing. As the casket was taken into the church and placed in front of the Rostrum the congregation stood with bowed heads.
The burial service was conducted by Rev. A. Allison Rogers, and the assisting clergyman was Rev. S.G. Garland. The opening sentences were read by Rev. A.A. Rogers, and were followed by the singing of the hymn "Jesu, Lover of My Soul". Following prayer by the Rev. S.G. Garland, and the Lord's Prayer, the choir rendered very effectively the anthem , "What are these that are arrayed in white robes." Rev. Mr. Rogers then delivered the following address: "There are times when the spoken word is a mighty power. There are other times when the word of man seems impotent, futile. Such a time is this. Yet this afternoon we would endeavour to utter some word, praying that thereupon the Divine blessing might rest."Another member of God's family has been called home. Once more the heavenly hand has beckoned. Once more the summons has been answered. Once more the feeling as of an aching void. "But we would seek a clearer vision, and there comes to our ears this great word of the great Apostle - 'All things work together for good to them that love God.' Therefore, we bid those who mourn to take heart, to realise, that, by the grace of God, the word of the Psalmist is true: 'The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: He leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me: thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.' We extend our sincere sympathy this day to those 'whose joy is turned into mourning'. We would seek to enter into their sufferings. May the words of the Master be fulfilled, when He said, 'Blessed are they that mourn, for
they shall be comforted.'.
The morning shall awaken
The shadows shall decay
And each true-hearted servant
Shall shine as doth the day.
There God, our King and Portion
In fullness of His grace
Shall we behold forever
And worship face to face.
"In the death of Mr. Christian, Newfoundland has lost a gifted son. This city in particular has lost a master musician and a warm friend. Others are in a better position than I to speak of the service rendered during a period of twenty-three years, to the students at the U.C. College, and to the musical life of the community at large. Of his value as organist and choirmaster of this church, I am able to speak with knowledge. For over two decades it was his duty and joy to preside at this organ, to train this choir, to lead this congregation in the service of song. His death leaves a vacancy that will be difficult to fill, and takes from this church family a tried, trusted, and beloved friend.
"May I speak a brief personal word? When I became minister of this church five months ago, it was with untold joy that I found in my colleague a congenial spirit. I love music, and on each recurring Lord's day I felt myself most fortunate in having Mr. Christian associated with me in conducting public worship. We 'hit it off' - if I may be allowed the phrase - from the very first, and each of us had plans in the making for the future weeks and months. That he will come into my vestry for his usual chat and preside at his beloved instrument no more, seems to me well nigh unbelievable. But he has gone: gone to a Home made by no human hands,
eternal to the heavens.
To an open house in the evening;
Home shall men come -
To an older place than Eden
To a taller than Rome.
To the end of the way of the wandering star,
To the things that cannot be - and that are!
"As we think on these things this afternoon there comes to us a God-given challenge. One of our number has passed away, but it is for us to hold high the torch that, in falling, has been flung behind. Or to change the figure, though the musician has gone, it is for us to see to it that the music still goes on. God grant that we may prove ourselves worthy of this challenge.
"Did we say there was a feeling as of an aching void? Ah, yes! But, men and women, let us not mourn too much lest we thereby displease the dead, for 'Death is swallowed up in victory.' 'For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with Him.' In a few moments this form shall forever disappear from view. Yet, by the grace and in the Providence of God, it is not the end: it is only the beginning. It is not the climax: it is but the introduction to realms where god rules and reigns forevermore. Though here may sometimes be the darkness of night, yonder there is the light of God's eternal day. And even now the clouds are parted: the gates are open: the Master Musician of the universe is welcoming His beloved pupil to his heavenly Home." The concluding hymn was "Abide With Me", and was followed by the playing of the Dead March in Saul, and the Benediction by Rev. Mr. Rogers. The funeral then wended its way to the General Protestant cemetery where the final commitment was read by Rev. A. Rogers. with Rev. Garland assisting.

To few indeed is given the privilege of enjoying the confidence and esteem of so large a circle of loyal friends and admirers as were numbered among the life long associates of the late William H. Christian, widely known and respected public accountant of this city, who passed away at the Grace Hospital on May 17th last. Born at Trinity, T. B. some 73 years ago, William H. Christian remained in his home town until he grew to manhood and began a business career with the old firm of R.S. Bremner of that place. Up to that point his life may be said to have been uneventful, but very soon he wished for a wider field of endeavor, and when only a little more than 20 years of age set out to see what the world had to offer a young man with ambition and the will to succeed. He chose accountancy as his life work and in that capacity for over twenty years he traveled throughout Canada and the United States, holding responsible positions during the time in numerous places as widely separated as Sydney and Vancouver in Canada, and Boston and Minnesota in the United States.
Returning to St. John's at the beginning of the first war, he entered the firm of G.N. Read, Son and Watson, Chartered Accountants, and later began business on his own account. The younger generation will best remember him in this latter capacity as he operated for nearly 30 years under the caption of William H. Christian, Public Accountant, with offices in The Royal Bank Chambers on Water Street. The broadening influence of his years of experience coupled with his extended knowledge of local conditions were factors which made him stand out pre-eminently in his chosen profession. All whose good fortune it was to seek his advice will have learned with regret that his wise counsel is no longer available.
About a year ago he decided to retire from active participation in business but almost up to his last illness his opinions were freely given to those who sought him out. The passing of such a man as William H. Christian severs another link with the glorious travelers of the past. His was a generation which placed love of home and family above all else, whose generosity and charity strove at all times to make the world a better place for those who came after them. The remains were conveyed to Trinity for interment in the United Church Cemetery beside his wife, who predeceased him many years ago. Being a long member of Avalon Lodge, A.F. & A.M., a special deputation of the membership accompanied the funeral cortege to the Railway Station. The following lines by him seem a fitting tribute to his character: "Do what thy manhood bids thee do, from none but self expect applause, He noblest lives and noblest dies who makes and keeps his self made laws." He leaves to mourn the loss of a loving and devoted father, two daughters, Gladys (Mrs. J. Gordon Howell) and Muriel (Mrs. H. G. Macdonald) , both of St. John's. He is also survived by his brother, Arch, residing at Trinity. - G.G.C.

CHRISTIAN, Corporal William
Daily News    November 4, 1918 (Monday)

"Died of Wounds". Thus briefly did the official casualty list record the passing of another gallant lad of "Ours", Corporal William Christian, son of Mr. and Mrs. W. Christian, Hayward Avenue. As to many of our boys, the call to service came to him long before he had reached his eighteenth birthday, and he was underage when he left here January last. Previous efforts had been made by him to get on drafts, but permission was refused until his enthusiasm would admit of no further denial. Having received early training in the Church Lads Brigade he had quickly adapted himself to the life of a soldier, and after a few months won a corporal's stripes. His record at the armoury here was that of a faithful, earnest soldier, and that record he held until the end. After six months additional training he crossed to France, and was almost at once drafted to guard German prisoners on the front. Toward the end of September he rejoined the battalion, and met his death wound in the fighting which has redeemed a large part of Belgium.
Willie Christian's death occurred at a hospital overlooking the English Channel, and his youthful body now lies in a military cemetery within sight of the shores of Mother England, in whose service, and for the principles for which the Empire stands he willingly gave all. Death ever brings sorrow in its train; but while the eyes are dimmed with tears, and the heart is almost breaking, may we not thank God that our brave and noble lads have been true to their better selves, faithful to ideals which are highest and best. They have died heroes in a noble cause, and while we shall miss them here, they have joined the Great White Throng, their souls have entered the portals of the life elysian, and gained the reward of service well done. To them the path of duty has been the way to Eternal Glory.

Loss of the Ocean Friend. Feelings of Sadness in Carbonear. (To the Editor of the Colonist). Carbonear, Sept. 23rd, 1887.
Sir, - You will, no doubt, be sorry to learn that a feeling of sad gloom hangs over our town, owing to the loss of the Ocean Friend - a schr. of some 80 tons. The vessel, which was only a little over six years old, and of American build, left for the bank fishery about eight weeks ago, having on board fourteen men and a boy (not sixteen as reported in your columns Wednesday). ...
On the 15th inst., a telegram was received from Burin by the owner, W. Duff, Esq., of the firm Messers Duff & Balmer [sic], stating that the schooner was lost on the Grand Bank. This report was confirmed on the 21st, by Capt. Moore, of the schooner Lizzie, of Heart's Content, who stated he was on board the wreck on the 6th; but no bodies were to be seen. ...
In consequence of this calamity, ten poor women are left widows, and twenty-four children fatherless. ...
The names of the crew are as follows: - Robert Wareham, of Salmon Cove, Conception bay, who leaves an aged mother, a wife and six children. This man's brother was lost with wife and family on the White Bear Islands, two years ago. Simon Luther, of Carbonear, leaves a widow and three children. Robert Penny (Carbonear), a widow and five children. His son, a boy of fourteen, was also lost. Thomas Howell (Carbonear), a widow and two children; Thomas Clark (Carbonear), a widow and four children; Reubin Pike (Carbonear), a widow and two children; Jourdain Pike (Carbonear), a widow and one child; Richard Penny (Carbonear), a widow and one child; William Penny (Carbonear), and Noah Hull, of Trinity Bay, each leaves a widow. Reubin French, Thomas Power, Nehemiah Ash, and Edward Penny (captain), all of Carbonear, were unmarried.
To add to the sadness of this recital, two of these poor women are shortly expecting an addition to their poor fatherless families. The eldest of the children is not more than twelve years of age. ...

Terrible Accident on Railway Track. A Man and Woman Lose Their Lives.
A sad accident occurred on the railway track yesterday afternoon, by which a man and a woman lost their lives. The following facts of the case were ascertained from Captain Nobel, at the Fort William Depot this morning: "Yesterday was apy day for the section hands on the road, and a special train was sent out with the paymaster. The train went right through to Harbour Grace, and was returning when the accident occurred. The hour Was 3.25 p.m., and the place was near Cat Hills - about three miles from Brigus Junction. When rounding a curve, on an up-grade, the train conductor saw a trolly approaching, with five persons on board. The brakes were applied to the train as quickly as possible; and it slowed up considerably; but the trolly could not be stopped, coming down the grade, and dashed into the train with frightful force.
Previous to the collision three persons on the trolly jumped off, but the remaining two were so paralyzed by fear that they could not summon courage enough to jump. When the collision occurred the trolly was smashed to atoms, and the two unfortunate persons on board were thrown high into the air. They struck on their heads some distance away. The fall caused concussion of the brain, from which they have both since died. One was a man, the other a woman. The former was William Kennedy, of Salmon Cove; the latter, Mary Conners [sic], of Conception Harbour. The train was stopped and both taken on board, to be brought to the hospital. Poor Kennedy died before reaching St. John's, but the woman lived until this morning, when she died in the hospital. Both were unmarried, and were under twenty years of age. The other three persons who jumped the trolly escaped with slight injury. The men were section hands, and, having overtaken Miss Connors [sic] on the road, were giving her a lift towards home. The trollys are being constantly used by the section hands, in moving from station to station. No blame attaches anywhere. Simply a special train was not expected at the hour, nothing more."

Drowned in a Freshet.

At 5 o'clock last evening, at the North Arm of Holyrood, Edward Corbett, third hand on No. 6 section of the Newfoundland Railway Company, and four other men, were engaged clearing ice on the North Arm River, about 200 feet above the bridge. They stood on ice near the bank, and sufficiently heavy to carry them. They went on prizing and poking pans of ice, sending them floating down the river. The work was of a very exhilarating nature, and much enjoyed. But it was more fraught with danger than supposed. Soon there was a break away of ice far up the river, admitting of an extra surge of water. Down it came unexpectedly, taking a body of loose ice beyond the men. The rapidity of the flow was something marvelous. The men had not time to make the bank. The ice on which they stood was swept from beneath them by the heavy impact, and the five men went floundering in the seething, rapidly careering waters. A man named O'Neil showed his strength and rapidity by being the first to get to terra firma. He then heroically strove to save his companions in peril. He bounded to a boulder, lay flat on it, breasting himself out over, and extending an end of the stick he had to Corbett, who was in great danger. Corbett caught the stick with both his hands, and held on with the tenacity of a man olding to save his precious life, to be still the guide and guardian of wife and children, for all that life holds bright. But, alas! For poor Corbett. The struggle was in vain. For two long minutes, seeming in duration an approach to an eternity of time, he held on, but he had to relax his hold his muscles refusing to longer act. The current was too strong. Away the unhappy man was sent whirling down the river, and the last sight seen of him was the dashing of his body against the bridge. He was swept down into the North Arm - drowned. His soul passed through the portals of death. Meanwhile, the other men gained safe footing, and offered thanks for their escape from untimely death, in the shadow of which they had lingered. The water rose so rapidly in this course yesterday that it ran over the girders of the bridge. This will give an idea of the freshet, and its great power. The deceased, Corbett, was a native of Chapel's Cove, C.B., was about 28 years of age, and has left a widow and two children - 3 years, and 1½ years old, respectively - to go through life lamenting his death, a great loss to them - loss of his support and affection.

Death at Chapel's Cove. There passed peacefully away at Chapel's Cove, on the 1st inst., an old and much respected resident in the person of Mr. Edward Corbett. The deceased was born in this little settlement seventy-one years ago, and spent the greater part of his life in the prosecution of the fishery on Labrador. These late years he became a victim to internal disorders, which, in spite of medical treatment, developed into consumption. Three months ago the fangs of this dread disease got hold of him; that his life was despaired of, and having settled all worldly affairs, and fortified by the holy sacraments he became fully reconciled to the Will of the Almighty. His remains were taken on Saturday to Harbor Main church, where solemn requiem mass was offered for the repose of his soul by the Rev. Father Roe, his spiritual attendant. After mass the remains, followed by a large concourse of people, were taken to Chapel's Cove cemetery, where interment took place.

Laid To Rest. Harbour Main, October 4th - Death makes no distinction with humanity. This statement was undoubtedly verified, when on Sept. 2nd of this year, this place lost one of its most beloved citizens in the person of Charles Costigan at the age of seventy-three years. He died as he had lived fortified by the rites of the Catholic Church, of which he was a most devout member. His death did not happen unexpectedly in view of the fact that he was known to suffer physically for the past ten years. Despite this, however, he worked willingly at the various tasks which God had allotted to him. Honesty and thoroughness were characteristic of his labours, which go to indicate what type of man he was. His removal from our midst is indeed a severe loss to both church and state and, consequently, the people, with whom he had intercourse, have reason to mourn his loss.
The funeral arrangements were looked after by undertaker Dunphy of Holyrood, who carried them out in his usual good style. A large throng of people followed the remains to the Church where the obsequies were recited by Rev. M.P. Dwyer, P.P., subsequent to the finalization of the obsequies, the hearse with the remains moved on to the graveyard near Avondale, where the customary sadness characterized the feeling of the very near relatives at the time of interment in Mother Earth. He leaves to mourn his loss his wife, Agnes; two sons, Joseph in New York and John at home; two daughters, Mrs. Thomas McGee and Mrs. Michael Willimas [sic], both of Everett, Mass., U.S.A., and several grandchildren, to all of whom we extend our sincere sympathy.
May his soul rest in peace.    AMICUS.

CROCKER, Patrick
Evening Telegram   November 13, 1920 (Saturday)
Trinity.

Early on Sunday morning last, Patrick Crocker was called to his eternal rest, aged 79 years. His body was laid to rest in the Church of England Cemetery on Tuesday - till the resurrection morning. He was a member of the Royal Albert Lodge, L.O.A., and the brethren attended the funeral. Patrick Crocker, son of Stephen and Catherine Crocker, was one of a family of fourteen children. Four are still living, viz., Aubrey, William, Ellen and Chrissey. He was born in June, 1841, and baptized in old St. Paul's on September 5th, 1841, by Rev. David Martin. He was married to Miriam Morris on January 2nd, 1866, by Rev. Benjamin Smith. In view of this event of nearly fifty-five years ago, it may be of interest to some, to know that the witnesses to the marriage were: James Morris, Margaret Crocker, Joseph Morris, Louisa Green, Jacob Crocker, Phoebe Ann Morris, Henry Charles Morris and Christianna Crocker. For over twenty years as "Skipper Pat" he was in charge of a schooner in the prosecution of the Labrador fishery; and for sixteen years he occupied the same position in connection with the Bank fishery. He was an industrious man, with a quiet disposition, and a reverent appreciation of his duty to God and man. He was always in his place in church on Sundays as a worshipper. On Sunday week, the Eve of All Saints' Day, he listened reverently, and intelligently to the sermon on the position and work of souls in the Paradise of God, and our duties towards them; and on the next Sunday morning his own soul was sharing in that intermediate life. May he rest in peace. His widow and three children survive him. The facts, that at one time there were fifty-six Crockers living on the North West shore of the South West Arm, and that to-day there is not one of the name there, will give me an inspiration for remarks on the subject next week. - W.J.L.

A Tribute. Mrs. J.S. Currie
.
There passed peacefully away Tuesday afternoon at her home, Winter Place one of the most highly respected and dearly loved ladies of this city in the person of Laura, beloved wife of Hon. J.S. Currie. The late Mrs. Currie had been in failing health for several months and her passing was not unexpected, but her loss is none-the-less a severe one, not only to the immediate family but to a wide circle of friends as well. The late Mrs. Currie was a loyal and devoted member of Gower St. United Church, to which she gave her time and talents unstintedly through the years. She was active in both the Woman's Missionary Society and the Woman's Association, and every good work sponsored by the Church found in her an enthusiastic and generous supporter. This is equally true of her work for the Cowan Mission, which is responsible for the operation of the Old Ladies' Home. In this work in the interest of women in the evening of life, she was for many years a tireless worker, and some years previous to her death held the office of vice-President of the Association. It was, however, in her home that her gracious personality was most in evidence. She was an exemplary wife and mother to her family and she delighted in bringing others into its circle. Many recall with gratitude her kind hospitality. Truly it can be said of her, she rests from her labours and her works do follow her. She leaves to mourn their sad loss, her husband, Hon. J.S. Currie, a daughter, Mrs. Flora Chafe, a son, Chancey, a sister, Miss Marie Christian, a brother, William L. Christian, four grandchildren and one great grandchild, to all of whom deepest sympathy is extended. L.A.D.C.

At 4 o'clock this morning, passed peacefully away, Naomi, widow of the late Rev. John G. Currie, in her eightieth year.

CURRIE, Naomi
Daily News February 14, 1916 (Monday)

At 4 o'clock on Saturday morning Mrs. Naomi Currie entered into rest. For over three years she had been confined to her bed, patiently waiting the call to her eternal home. When after days of suffering it came, she fell peacefully on sleep. Mrs. Currie was the widow of the Rev. John Gibson Currie and survived him for nearly forty years. Until about twenty years ago she resided in Carbonear, where her activities as a class leader and church worker were well remembered. In 1895 she came to St. John's, where until the infirmities of age prevented, she continued her labours of love, rendering valued service to the Ladies' College Aid, and in other matters connected with the religious and educational life of the Methodist Church of which she was an almost life-long member. She leaves to mourn their loss, two daughters, Mrs. J. Alex. Robinson of this city, and Mrs. Rhoda E. Peach of Carbonear, also two sons, Mr. J. S. Currie, M.H.A., and Mr. W. G. Currie, Accountant at the Newfoundland Savings Bank. Interment takes place this afternoon at Carbonear, the remains and relatives having gone thither by Saturday evening's train. News of her death will evoke sympathetic interest in the hearts of many Ministers of the Methodist Church in this and other lands. To the younger men, she may have been a stranger, but those who laboured here in the eighties and nineties will remember Mrs. Currie as a Mother in Israel, whose home had no more welcome guests than those whose pride and privilege it was to preach the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.

CURRIE, Robert Richard
