Yesterday evening the bodies of the naval officers were removed from the morgue to the Council Chambers of the city and the funeral will take place from there this morning. [His] Excellency the Governor and party left by H.M.S. "Swisteria" last evening on a visit to sections of the Colony. Sept. 19: Funeral obsequies of victims of Monday night's motor accident were marked by unusual display of public sympathy. Large concourses of citizens followed bodies to the grave side while the streets were lined by thousands of people who stood in sympathetic silence. The naval funeral in the morning was particularly impressing, the bodies being carried on gun carriages and followed by large numbers of sailors from the ship bearing arms. Gloucester schooner "Anita and Bernice" is given up as lost. One of her men, Joseph TARGETT is a Newfoundlander. Sept. 20: The Special Service Squadron leaves for England tomorrow afternoon. In a letter [to] His Excellency the Governor, Admiral Field expresses appreciation of the hospitality extended all ranks during the visit. Sept. 22: The Special Service Squadron which for the past ten days has been anchored off Topsail in Conception Bay weighed anchor at 5:15 yesterday afternoon and started homeward, passing down the north side of the bay. Sept. 23: Walter MCFATRIDGE, struck by the east-bound Express [train] on Sunday evening near Deer Lake, was so badly injured that he died at the hospital there yesterday morning. The [paper mill?] Company at Corner Brook are making further enquiries for axemen to go in the woods. The position at the present time is that men must be procured at once to cut the timber in the Deer Lake area. If they are not available much valuable timber will be lost or the completion of the big dam delayed for another year. Employment can be found for a large number of axemen. Sept. 24: Capt. Richard GOSSE of Gosse Milard Company of Vancouver, a Newfoundlander who has made good in the canning industry in British Columbia, gave an excellent address before the Board of Trade yesterday, on the industry.
