Inquest held before Mr J.M. Twomey, J.P., at Waitohi on Wednesday touching the death of Eli Mitchell, a well-known farmer of Waitohi, who came by his death the previous day. G. Davis, shepherd, said the deceased was driving home from Temuka through the Arowhenua Estate, in a spring cart in which he had a bale of cornsacks, on which he was sitting. Deceased was not sober, and had tied the reins to the side of the cart, trusting to the horse to keep the road. It appeared the horse went to one side and running one wheel up a bank overturned the vehicle on its side. Bale of sacks pinned him down. The witness and with the assistance of a neighbour R.J. McCallum, righted the horse and trap and took the accused home, where he died an hour or two later, just before the doctor arrived.

A farmer named Eli Mitchell, residing at Waitohi Flat, Temuka, met with a fatal accident on Tuesday evening near the Arowhenua Homestead. He was taking home a bale of cornsacks, and at a newly made crossing through an old gorse fence his trap was capsized, and the weight of the cornsacks crushed him to the ground. Several persons went to the rescue, and Mr Mitchell was driven to his home, a distance o£ about three miles. He was conscious during the journey, but died before medical assistance could be procured. At an inquest held yesterday a verdict of " Accidental death " was rejourned.

TAYLOR. At the Timaru Hospital on Thursday March 3rd, Robert Taylor, aged 85 years. Deeply regretted.

Evening Post, 4 March 1898, Page 5 Timaru, This Day.
An old identity, Mr. Robert Taylor, died in the Hospital today, aged 87. He came from Hobart to Wellington early in the forties, and thence to Lyttelton before the first four ships. He was a builder, and helped to build early Wellington and Lyttelton. He was an old Freemason, and the father of Foresters here.

Timaru Herald, 4 March 1898, Page 3 OBITUARY.
Robert Taylor, better known to old residents of South Canterbury as "Bobby" Taylor, died at the Hospital yesterday morning, at the ripe age of 85. He was one of the pioneers of the colony in a wider sense than usual, as he took part in the establishment of three centres of settlement. He crossed from Tasmania to Wellington in the early forties, and, a builder and joiner by trade, he helped to build up the first wooden Wellington, which was founded in 1840. He next came down to Lyttelton to assist in preparing for the arrival of the pioneer immigrants to Canterbury, who arrived in December, 1850, and he remained there, following his trade and helping to build the first township on Port Cooper. He was a good and ingenious tradesman, and we learn that he was a general adviser or amateur practical architect in those days. In 1859 he removed to Timaru, in the early days of the town, but after the arrival of the Strathallan. He commenced business as builder, contractor, and undertaker, and many of the old structures in Timaru bear the marks of his tools. After some years he tried hotel keeping, in a small house in Beswick Street called the Square and Compass (Mr Taylor was a Mason), but he was burned out of this in a fire which destroyed the original Ship Hotel and South Canterbury Times office. The building now occupied by Mr J. S. Bennett in Beswick Street then belonged to Mr Taylor, and was used as a workshop. It was scorched by the fire but escaped destruction, and this the deceased converted into a general dealer's shop. Later on he transferred his business to a shop in Grey Road, where he carried it on until increasing infirmity compelled him to relinquish it. The deceased was known to everybody in the early days. He was respected for his uprightness, and extremely popular for his quaint humour. He was like Yorick, a fellow of infinite jest. He was one of the oldest Masons and Foresters in Canterbury, and the father of the Foresters' Lodge in Timaru, and both of these orders did their duty by him m his declining years. He leaves seven daughters, all married, many grand children and some great grand-children, most of them in South Canterbury, others at Christchurch and Lyttelton. The funeral takes place on Sunday, and there will no doubt be a very large attendance of the old identities of Timaru and its neighbourhood. Notice is given in another column requesting the brethren of St, John's Lodge to attend the funeral on Sunday, and it is expected that there will be a large attendance of the craft at the funeral of such an old and eminent brother. The deceased was one of the founders of Lodge Unanimity, Lyttelton, the first lodge m Canterbury, and of St. John's Lodge, Timaru.

[Timaru Herald, 3 April 1899, Page 2
Our Winchester correspondent writes The sad news which reached Winchester on Thursday morning of the sudden death of Mrs James Austin (formerly Miss Stewart) was received with profound regret. Mr and Mrs Austin had spent the greater part of their lives in this district, and their marriage rather more than twelve months ago united two of the oldest and most respected families in the district. A little one arrived a week ago to complete the happiness of the young couple, but sudden failure of the heart's action laid the happy young wife into her last sleep and broke up the united family. The funeral of the late Mrs Austin took place at Temuka on Friday, when friends and relatives from far and near assembled to pay the last token of respect to the deceased, and express their deep sympathy for the bereaved husband and sorrowing friends. The Rev. John Dickson conducted the funeral service at the grave in a most impressive manner, and endeavoured to impress upon young and old the divine command "Be ye also ready, for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of Man cometh," ]

THE LATE MR BARCLAY. The funeral of the late Mr George Baker Barclay took place at Waimate on Monday and was largely attended, mourners attending from all parts of the county to pay a last tribute of respect to the memory of one who was so well known and universally respected. The deceased was the son of the Rev G. Barclay, who is well known in South Canterbury. He was born in Ireland, and came to the colony with his parents when very young.

The harbour flags were flying at halfmast yesterday, for the death of "old George" Sunnaway, an old boatman of Timaru. The deceased came to Timaru from the West Coast, and had been connected ever since with the working of the harbour. His name is recorded on the Wreck Monument as one of those who survived the perils of the fatal 14th of May, and he was honourably mentioned for his share in that day's work. He suffered a good deal more than one man's share of injuries from accidents, some of them serious ones that would have killed most men. He had reached a good age, and leaves a widow and grown up family.

It is confidently expected that his leg will soon be us strong at ever.

We are very glad to see that Mr George Sunnaway, who some weeks ago broke his thigh when working onboard the Wakatipu, is about again, though still obliged to use crutches. The limb was moat skillfully set by Dr Lovegrove, assisted by other medical gentlemen, and the patient will, we believe, suffer no permanent injury from his unfortunate accident. Mr Sunnaway speaks in the highest terms of the skill, attention, and kindness, which he uniformly experienced in the hospital, and expresses himself as very much pleased with all the arrangements in the institution.

An accident occurred between 5 and 6 o'clock o'clock last evening to Messrs Lapthorn and Sunnaway on board the steamer Taviuni, which was lying at the main wharf. The men were in the hold assisting in stowing cargo when a sling full of 50 1b bags of flour slipped when about to be lowered, and the bags struck the two men, knocking them over. Sunnaway escaped with a few bruises, but Laplhorn's leg was so much injured that he bad to be lifted on to the wharf. Dr Hogg, who was on the spot at the time, did all he could for the sufferer, and recommended his removal, and he was taken home in an express.
