This volume was some time the property of Mr. W. ALEXANDER, of Bonavista, whose name appears on it with the date 1816. He states PYNN was a native of St. John's and an employee of Elms. The fact is that he was born at Bristol's Hope (Mosquito).

He was a relative of the McBRIDES, of the firm of McBRIDE & KERR, after whom McBride's Hill is named. Others mentioned are Capt. LeLIEVE, Capt. MOCKLER, aide-de-Camp, Lieut.

About 60 Newfoundlanders all told, took part in the engagement and the despatch (1812) says, "The detachment of the Royal Newfoundland Regiment behaved with great gallantry." In the discussion which followed the reading of the extracts, reference was made to Captain (afterward Colonel) SKINNER, whose tablet is to be seen on the walls of St. Thomas Church . He lived about the period of 1813 and owned property on Bell Island, extending from the Beach to its eastern end.

Non- Residents
London, April 5th 1920

The Editor Daily News.

Dear Sir:- There will no doubt be a considerable number of your readers interested to know the recommendations of the Royal Commission on the Income Tax which have recently been published in so far as they affect those who come within the term "non residents" and possibly entitle such person who have British Income to some reduction from the highest rate in force.

According to the present law no persons who are residence outside the United Kingdom are entitles to any rebate of British Income tax unless they can bring themselves within certain well defined expressions such as (a) Crown Service, (b) Ex-Crown Service (C) Widows of Ex-Crown Servants, (d) Missionaries (e) Resident abroad for reasons of health (f) Residence in the Isle of Man or the Channel Island. The Royal Commission have recommended that any relief that would be granted to a British subject resident in the United Kingdom should equally be granted to a British subject residence abroad, and that the relief should be calculated by relation to real total

Income (including foreign and colonial Income), any relief given being in the proportion that the Income subject to United Kingdom Income Tax bears to the total Income at the effective rate that would be charged if the total Income (including income not subject to United Kingdom Income Tax, but computed as far as possible as it would be if were so subject), were assessable in this country.

Yours Faithfully

Two Newfoundlanders, Michael DRAKE, of St. Lawrence, and F. TIPPLE of this city, belonging to the crew of the Nova Scotia steamer trawler M. F. B are missing and believed lost since the sinking of that ship off Halifax a fortnight ago.

The M. F. B. left Liverpool N. S. on Monday afternoon, March 29th, for the Banks. Arriving on the Banks she met with success until the following Monday, when she left the Banks for Halifax to take on bunker coal. About 80,000 pounds of fresh fish were on board. the results of the six days fishing. About 5.30 p.m. Monday, when she was 35 miles from Halifax the trawler was found to be leaking aft. Immediately the pumps were put into use and it was found that they could not control the incoming water. An attempt was also made to bale the water out, with no success. Towards 8 o'clock the water the water reached the engine room putting out the fires out, and continued rising. Capt. KRAMP then decided that it was useless to stand by the ship, as he did not think she would remain afloat another two hours. Preparations were made to abandon the trawler. Two lifeboats were launched, as well as the dory, food and rockets being placed in them.

Before leaving the ship between 8.30 and 8.45 o'clock efforts were made by flares and rockets to attract attention of other craft, and when his men took to the boats the trawler's decks were almost awash. The weather began to become stormy and the three boats hauled away, and headed for land. In each of the two lifeboats there were eight men, Capt. KRAMP being in charge of one, and First Officer TURNER of the other, the four men leaving in a dory. The three boats kept together for several hours and Capt. KRAMP says that he last saw the other lifeboat about ten o'clock. She has not since been heard of and is given over for lost. The two Newfoundlanders above named were aboard her. Another Newfoundlander John BURTON of St. Lawrence was a member of the crew, but he was saved.

"She dwells where fragrant flowers bloom,
And joy supreme is given,
Where God's own presence can alone,
Make all serene - in Heaven"

Entered into rest on Wednesday May 5th in her 38th year, Alice Catherine, beloved wife of Mr. Wallace R. GOOBIE and the youngest daughter of Mrs. Mary and the late William H. COOK. Mrs. GOOBIE leaves to mourn her husband and five young children, besides a mother, and three sisters Mrs. Jacob CHAFE, Mrs. Levi CHAFE, and Mrs. George RIDEOUT. Although the shadow of death had long been imminent, yet Mrs. GOOBIE regarded the grim specter without either fear or dismay. Calmly during her long and trying illness she had made all possible preparation for the material comfort for her husband and five children and fully realizing that her strength was waning, she fought with supreme courage that which she knew to be a losing fight, and thus did the valiant spirit of this frail woman triumph over bodily suffering. Shortly before the end she called her little ones to her beside and bade them not to cry and mourn because she was leaving them to go to Heaven, where they would all meet again. After having said good bye to her dear ones, she passed quietly into the sleep which knows no waking.


There passed peacefully away to her eternal home on the 23rd of April Lillian, the beloved wife of Capt. Samuel GOSSE of Spaniard's Bay and daughter of Mrs. George ADAMS, of Harbor Grace at the age of twenty-seven years.

The deceased lady was greatly esteemed and much respected by a large circle of friends for her many good and truly Christian qualities. Her demise will be deeply regretted by all who knew her. Her patient resignation to the All-wise decrees of Providence and the fortitude with which she bore a painful and lingering illness, marked the true Christian spirit of the deceased, she has now obtained the life of rest in joy and gladness, where pain is unknown. Besides her sorrowing husband there are left to mourn their sad loss one daughter, Dorothy, her mother, 3 sisters and 2 brothers, to whom is extended sincere sympathy.

A large mill at Benton, through unused for some time, was destroyed by fire on Thursday night. The mill was recently purchased by Storm and Strong, and the intention was to operate it the present seasons. Some very valuable machinery was installed in the building by the former owners, and it is believed that the whole has been practically rendered unfit for further use. The building was totally consumed as the fire occurred as a time when the people of the place were asleep. The origin of the fire is unknown, and it is said no insurance was carried on either building and machinery.

There passed away at 7 o'clock last evening, Bride, the eldest daughter of Mary and the late James JACKMAN, at the early age of 17 years. The sad news of her passing will be received with deep regret by all who knew her and particularly by her classmates and teachers at the Mercy Convent and St. Brides Academy to whom she had endeared herself by her ever gentle and winning manner. In April last she became ill that she had to discontinue her studies in which she had made marked progress, but up to the end maintained a cheerful disposition. Despite the best medial attendance and the loving care of a devoted mother, the end came at the hour mentioned. Gently she passed away. To the sorrowing mother, brothers and sisters sincere sympathy is extended.

She had been suffering for some time past with heart trouble but recently appeared to be regaining her health. She reached St. John's on Tuesday of last week and was feeling fairly well. On Saturday morning as she was rising she died. A priest and doctor were promptly called but she had passed away before their arrival. The funeral took place yesterday at Carbonear. To her father, three sisters and three brothers we extended sympathy in their seep sorrow.

The passing of John GRIFFIN at the Escasoni Hospital last evening, after a protracted illness, will be deeply regretted by many friends. "Jack" as he was familiarly called, was one of those who went over when the great world war was on. Having been rejected in the Regiment he joined up in the Foresters and served the full period in Scotland, and held the respect of not only the Newfoundlanders but the others Colonials who were giving like service. For many years he was trusted employee of the Boot and Shoe Factory but was capable of other work and occasionally visited the ice fields, always with success. In the T. A. Club Rooms he was a welcome member and those who took part in the various games in which he always led will sincerely regret his early passing at 42 years. A loyal companion, honest in all his undertakings, he made an impression on those who were closely associated with him including the writer. His widow and five orphans, his two brothers, Lawrence of Garden Aerated Water Works, Patrick of the Newfoundland Boot and Shoe Factory, his sister Mrs. WALL and his mother, will have the sympathy of their numerous friends in their bereavement. Interment takes place tomorrow Wednesday from his late residence Goodview Street.

The sudden passing of dear Miss Anna KENEALLY, daughter of Capt. John KENEALLY, at St. John's, came as a terrible blow to her father, brothers, sisters, relatives and friends here and elsewhere. When the sad news reached over the wire the right Rev. Monsignor McCARTHY visited the home of Captain KENEALLY to sympathize and console with him on the very sad occasion.

On Tuesday morning she took passage by the train for the city, intending to return the week end and feeling fairly well during the first three days, or rather improving, until Friday when a change came, and on Saturday morning at 11 o'clock she passed to her eternal reward. A Priest and Doctor were promptly called, but she had passed before their arrival. Unstinted praise in due Miss DUNNE of the hotel, in taking the whole responsibility in the selecting of the casket and in preparing all that was necessary for the deer departed. The undertaker, Mr. MARTIN, is well deserving of praise for his promptitude in having the remains placed on the train in good time, arriving at Carbonear at 10.30 p.m. The casket, enclosing the dear deceased lady, was removed from the train and placed tenderly on the hearse and conveyed to the old homestead, Patrick Place. Her popularity and the high esteem in which she was held was noticeable in the great stream of people visiting the home to take a farewell glance. When the sad news of her passing reached here, it was with deepest regret by all who knew her particularly with her class and schoolmates to whom she had endeared herself by her ever gentle and winning manner.

The floral offerings were many and grand, fully covering the casket. The funeral took place on Monday, the 23rd at 3 o'clock from the old homestead, Patrick Place. When arriving at St. Patrick's Church, the Rev. Father Cullen officiated, as also at the cemetery graveside, where the deceased was interred in the family plot. The afflicted family and sorrowing friends consoled by the recollection of her saintly life. Let us hope her soul rests in the bosom of god. Praying the eternal re-union words, "I am the resurrection and the life, he that believeth in me, through he be dead, shall live."

, aged 24 years, beloved daughter of James and Priscilla SNOW of North River, passed peacefully away on the 15th of September, leaving her aged parents, two sisters and one brother to mourn her loss.
"To-day we laid her beneath the sod,
And gazed on the new made grave
We know she has passed through the pearly gates
Far over the chilly wave
Beyond the cold damp mist of death
She saw the summer land,
In the valley of shadow she feared not to tread
While Jesus held her hand.
Loved once came down to the river's brink
But they could not cross the tide,
'I'll be watching for you,' were the words she said,
As she passed to the other side.
In her earthly home is a vacant chair,
and a Dear one gone for aye,
But we'll meet her where our Lord's own hands,
Shall wipe all tears away.

Two St. John's Men Have Very Trying Time

Being in a 16-foot disable motor boat without food or water for 60 hours, and driving about on the ocean in sight of land, and with their appeals for help unnoticed such is the experience of two well-known residents of the West End, who were picked up yesterday morning about four miles off Cape Spear by the schooner Vivian Ruth, bound to this port from Halifax. It seems that on Sunday night James BRACE and Richard COADY visited some friends on board the American steamer Tulsa, which was anchored in the stream. After being on board for several hours they bade their friends goodnight, and at 11 o'clock got into their motor boat and started for the shore. After pushing off from the steamer it was found that the engine would not work and although every effort was made to effect repairs and get the engine working, it was of no avail. To make matters worse, there was neither sails nor oars in the boat and they soon found themselves drifting out the narrows. Several attempts were made to land on the South Side, but in the darkness and with no means of propulsion, it was useless. A flare-up was lighted out of a handkerchief, but this was not seen by anyone on shore, and gradually the boat and its two occupants slowly drifted to sea. The weather was fine, and the sea comparatively calm and all night the boat drifted helplessly about. When daylight broke they were about five miles off Cape Spear, the houses and Blockhouse being very plainly seen. A distress signal was hoisted on one of the seats but there was not response, and all day they drifted about with the wind and tide. On Monday night the wind freshened up somewhat and blew off the land, and they spent a very uneasy time of it, but being old sea dogs and having been up against it before they did not lose heart, but hoped for the best. The weather was very cold and to keep themselves warm they got into the "cuddy" and lay close to one another. On Tuesday morning they were out of sight of land, and having not food, with no sail or smoke in sight, and the boat shipping water, it looked as if fate was not going to be kind to the two castaways. During the day some rain water was caught in a piece of canvas which was in the boat, and this helped to appease the hungry and thirsty men. All day Tuesday and all night the boat drifted about and at daylight yesterday morning the land was once again in sight. Repeated efforts were made to get Cape Spear or the Cabot Tower to see their signal, but with the high sea running and the small object they did not notice their plight. Yesterday morning a heavy wind raged outside and the boat was continually shipping water, it being impossible to keep her face. A heavy sea was running and every minute threatened to swamp the tiny boat, but Providence was looking after the missing ones and at 10 o'clock they were gladdened by the sight of a schooner bearing down on them. Their signals of distress were seen by the crew of the schooner, which proved to be the Vivian Ruth bound inward with oil cargo for the Imperial Oil Co. and after skillfully maneuvering the vessel, the castaways were taken on board. The Captain and crew treated them with every kindness, providing them with hot food and doing everything possible under the circumstances. Both men are of the opinion that if they had not been rescued yesterday morning that their boat could not survived much longer in the weather that was raging and they are thankful to be on dry land once again. They both suffered for the want of food and the hardship of being adrift in an open boat for 60 hours at this season of the year, but last night after having a much needed rest, they were none the worse for their trying experience.

John FRENCH, well known as a nautical instructor, and son of the late Capt. J. FRENCH was almost burnt to death at his home, 32 King's Road at 1 o'clock this morning. His condition was so bad when rescued from the dwelling that Priest had to be called to offer spiritual help and also a medical doctor. At 1.30 Mr. FRENCH was conveyed to the General Hospital in the ambulance and at press hour the News was informed that his recovery was very doubtful.

From what can be learned it appears that the old man who had been living alone in a downstairs flat in King's Road for several years, was lying awake on the couch reading, a lighted kerosene lamp, resting on a chair close by, affording light. In an attempt to draw the lamp nearer he capsized it, the fuel spilling over the scant bed clothing which covered him igniting. The old gentlemen made an outcry which attracted Mr. Patrick MURRAY who lives in the flat above. The latter hurried to his assistance and when he forced an entrance he found FRENCH lying on the floor, his clothing a mass of flame. Murray, as quickly as he knew how, extinguished the burning clothing and carried the old gentleman to the hallway. In the meantime several persons who were standing near the top of King's Road were approached by the noise and hurried to the scene. Two of the number, Messrs C. BYRNE and C. SPURRELL found the old gentleman postrate in the hallway and immediately removed him to the water shed a few yards distance and summoned Rev. Dr. CARTER and Dr. MacPHERSON by phone, both of whom responded in a few minutes. An alarm had been sent to the central station in the meantime and the fire apparatus was soon on hand. The fire however was not of a serious character and was quenched with the aid of the chemical engine. While the firemen were at work Doctor McPHERSON attended to the injured man and did all possible to alleviate his suffering while Rev. Dr. CARTER offered spiritual consolation and prepared him for death. Mr. FRENCH did not appear to be suffering though he was terribly burned about the abdomen and legs, scarcely a sign of flesh being left on the bones. He retained consciousness however while being treated by the doctor and up to the time he was taken into the ambulance to be conveyed to the hospital, where he now lies in a dying condition.

The unfortunate man was widely known in the east end of the city and for many years taught navigation and a general school in that section. In early life he followed the sea and retired owing to an accident in which he met with serious bodily injury. For some years, against the wishes of many friends, he has been living alone, and for more than a year has been practically unable to get about owing to infirmities, and when the kerosene lamp toppled over this morning he was unable to save himself.

At 9 o'clock Monday night, Miss Emma ALLEN, aged 43 years was found drowned on Topsail Beach by a search party who sought her after she had been missing several hours from her home. Deceased had been suffering from violent headaches for several weeks, and latterly was affected with mental depression. Monday afternoon at about 4:30, she left her father's home with the intention of talking a walk along the road. Not returning for supper, enquires were made at houses nearby but her presence could not be located. A search party was organized and a search made. About 8:30 the body of the missing woman was found on the beach about thirty feet east of the public wharf and appeared as if it had been in the water for some hours. The matter was reported to the police and yesterday Inspector General HUTCHINGS with detective LEE and Dr. TAIT visited Topsail to conduct enquires. The authorities are unable to say whether the woman fell over the public wharf or how the drowning occurred

Ninety of the original draft which left by the Florizel on October 4th 1914, sat down at 8.45 p.m. The gathering was a re-union in the best sense. The absence of long and tiresome speeches was appreciated by all present. The program had but two toasts both proposed by the chairman vis "The King" and "Absent Comrades." The first was honored in the usual way and the response to the second was by standing to attention for a minute by all present.

The menu was served in the style that the well known hostelry "Smithville" is famous for, Miss FURLONG and her aids doing everything for the enjoyment of all present.

Lt.-Col CARTY was chairman, and under his guidance the re-union was carried through successfully. During the evening he read messages from Lt. Col. PATERSON and Capt. T. CONNORS, both of whom regretted their enforced absence from the celebration. After the supper had been thoroughly enjoyed an impromptu concert followed Songs were rendered by Major MARCH and BUTLER and TAIT. Capts. J. SNOW and G. G. BYRNE, Lieut. IRVING, Sergt. MORRISSEY, P. O. Mike SMYTH, Tom NOSEWORTHY and G. JACKMAN; recitations by Capt. H. McNEILL and Sergt. Major F. P. LeGROW. The evening was brought to a fitting close at 11:30 by the National anthem.

The almost sudden passing of Mr. John RYAN, City Engineer, will be learnt with deep regret by the whole community. The summons came at 10 o'clock last night following an operation at the General Hospital which took place during the forenoon. The operation was successfully conducted and during the afternoon it looked if the patient would recover. Later compilations set in and very unexpectedly the end came. Mr. RYAN who was widely known in the city had just passed his 73rd year and up to a very short time ago enjoyed excellent health, being able to attend to his duties and be present at Municipal Council. For more that 35 years he had been attached to the council and had been City Engineer since 1896 following the death of Engineer HARVEY. Under his superintendence, the new water system from Windsor Lake was laid and also the new service from George's Pond .The sewerage service and street construction for the past quarter of a century has been under his direction, and all at times he gave his personal attention to the work. Visiting engineers from Canada and the U.S. brought here for consultation always approved of his opinion, and the splendid water supply that the city has today was largely brought about through the effort and recommendations of Mr. RYAN. As an official he stood high in the estimation of the different Councils under which he served, and his good work for the city will be a lasting testimonial to his efficiency. Mr. RYAN, apart from his official duties, was highly esteemed. He was a staunch friend, firm in conviction, honest, and sincere. His passing severs another link in the chain, which bound a fellowship of good and true men of the old school now fast passing away. For many years deceased has been a member of the B. I. S. in which he held several important offices and was also a member of the Knight of Columbus. Left to mourn are three sons, William, Assist. City Engineer, A. J. telegraph operator at Sydney and Stan at home, three daughters Mrs. A. SULLIVAN and Misses Mary and Hannah, to whom the News extends sympathy.

There passed peacefully away at Placentia, after a brief illness, Mrs. Mary GREENE, relict of Robert GREENE. By her genial disposition she had won the friendship of all with whom she had become acquainted. She was a devout catholic, an ideal mother and sincere friend and her passing is deeply regretted. Deceased had reached the ripe old age of 85years, and leaves to mourn five daughters, Mrs. J. T. FLYNN, Mrs. Hugh HARTIGAN, Mrs. Austin COLLINS, Mrs. W. P. MILLER, Mrs. Patrick J. KEEFE, two sons Michael and William and a number of grand children, among then Rev. T. J. FLYNN of the city. Funeral took place from her residence on Wednesday last and was largely attended. R. I.P.

The home of Mr. and Mrs. A. H. CHRISTIAN, 86 Pleasant Street was the scene of a pretty wedding on Monday afternoon, when their daughter Gertrude was united in the bonds of matrimony to Mr. Frederick T. PEACH of the western Union Cable Co., Bay Roberts, and the son of Mr. and Mrs. J. B. PEACH, "Rural Retreat," Carbonear. A little after 3.30 to the accompaniment of the wedding march played by her brother, Mr. Gordon CHRISTIAN, the bride, leaning on the arm of her father, entered the room where the groom, attended my Mr. W. RODGER and the guests were assembled. Attractively gowned and carrying a pretty bouquet of white carnations, the bride was attended by her sister, Miss Bessie CHRISTIAN, with little Betty CHRISTIAN, her niece, acting as flower girl. After the ceremony which was performed by the Rev. D. R. HEMMEON, B.A., the pastor of George St. Church, a social hour was enjoyed and refreshments served following which accompanied by the heartiest congratulations and best wishes, and amid showers of confetti , the bride and groom took sleigh for Waterford Bridge where they joined the train for Holyrood. They return to today and will leave by the Rosalind for an extended honeymoon trip to the United States. On their return they will make their home at Bay Roberts. The bride was the recipient of many beautiful presents, among them one from the choir of George Street Church, of which she has been an active member, and many messages of congratulations poured in from friends outside the city. In the chorus of felicitations the News most heartily joins.

A very pretty wedding took place at the Methodist Church, Old Perlican on Dec. 16th, when Susie, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John T. BARRETT, was united in the holy bonds of matrimony to Mr. Hubert BARTER, of Bay de Verde, the ceremony being performed by Rev. F. H. PHILLIPSON. The bride, who was given away by her father was attired in a dress of blue satin with hat to match and carried a bouquet of roses, pansies, etc. She was attended by her sister Florence, and her niece, Miss Violet BURSEY was flower girl, while the groom was supported by Mr. William RIGGS. After the ceremony a reception was held at the home of bride's parents, where an enjoyable time was spent by friends and relatives. Next day the happy couple left by train for Bay de Verde where they will reside in future. The presents received were many and valuable testifying to the esteem in which both parties were held. We wish Mr. and Mrs. BARTER many years of happy married life.
