On Saturday night after a short illness, one of our best known men passed away in the person of James C. TESSIER, who was for many years one of the foremost business men of the city. In '93 he contested the district of St. John's West in the General Election as a candidate of the Whiteway party and was elected. Again in '97 he contested the same district being again returned, Mr. TESSIER had been sick but a few days and his demise was unexpected. He was born in London, January 18th, 1842, and came to Newfoundland in 1853, as assistant in the dry goods business, but shortly after entered the employ of P. & L. TESSIER whom he served for 38 years, holding various positions of responsibility. Joining Sir R. THORNBURN in '88 he carried on business under the style of THORNBURN & TESSIER until 1894. During his time he had charge of veritable armies of workmen who always had the good word for him, and no man knew how to manage them better than he. Yesterday when his death was made known, the whole community was shocked, as some days before he appeared in good health. In the death of James C. TESSIER, the country loses one of its best men, a patriotic Englishman and a good citizen to the country of his adoption. He leaves two sons, a wife, and a daughter to mourn their loss, to whom the "News" tenders its sympathy.
