Pretoria Tragedy.
Business Man Found Shot
Pretoria, Saturday
When a native caretaker entered the office of Mr. Jos. H. MARKS, at 7 o'clock this morning, he found lying huddled up on the floor the body of a man who but last evening was seen calmly writing business letters at his desk.
MARKS, a well-built man of about 50, for the past few months has been engaged here in various occupations of a clerical nature.  Some letters were found making it clear that it was a case of suicide.  The deceased had shot himself with a small revolver through the mouth.  No reason for the act is ascertainable at the moment, but financial embarrassment is suspected.
MARKS was spoken to late yesterday evening, and he was apparently quite cheerful.  He leaves a wife and family who live on the East Rand. – Reuter.

Sportman's Tragic Death.

The news of the tragic death of Mr. Sidney W.S. COLLINS on the tennis courts at the Wanderers, Johannesburg, on Saturday afternoon, will be learned with the deepest feelings of regret by the older sportsmen in Queenstown and along the Border.  A Johannesburg message says the tragic affair occurred during a league match between Turffontein and Wanderers, and caused a painful sensation among both players and spectators.  S.W.S. COLLINS, of Donnelly Street, Kenilworth, and exceedingly well-known figure in Johannesburg sporting circles, was playing for the Turffontein Club, and had completed nine games, and he had just changed over and was about to serve in the tenth when he dropped dead.  He collapse was entirely unexpected.  He had left home apparently in best of health at 2 p.m., and there had never been the slightest indication of any organic trouble to suggest that he might die suddenly.  Mr. COLLINS was forty-nine years of age, and was employed by the Municipality as sub-accountant in the Town Treasurer's Department.  In his earlier days he was prominent both as a soccer player and a cricketer, at both of which he had played for South Africa.  Mr. Sid. COLLINS was a leading light in Queenstown sport for several years in the nineties.  Besides being a great tennis player, he captained the Folkestone Lodge soccer team, and as a centre forward was unequalled in South Africa.  He was chosen to represent South Africa against visiting English teams on several occasions, and many times represented Queenstown and the Border in big matches.  When the Boer War broke out, Mr. COLLINS was given a commission in the Q.R.V., and served throughout the war.  HE did not return to Queenstown.  Besides being a good all-round athlete, Mr. COLLINS was in every sense a true sportsman.

The Late Justice LANGE
A Wise and Upright Judge
Tributes from Bench & Bar
Grahamstown, Friday.
In the Supreme Court to-day, Judge HUTTON made appreciative reference to the late Justice LANGE.  He said as that was the first occasion on which that Court had sat since they received the sad intelligence of the death of Mr. Justice LANGE, he should like, on behalf of the Bench of that Court, to take the opportunity  of expressing their deep sense of the loss which the country had sustained by his death, and also their respectful sympathy to his widow and family in their bereavement.  He had been closely associated  with the late Judge in the performance of many public duties, first as prosecutor for a period extending over two years in the Special Treason Court which was constituted in 1900 after the Anglo-Boer War, of which Court he was a member, again as a member of the Special Treason Court which was constituted in 1915, of which he was President, and again as a member of the Rebellion Inquiry Commission in 1916, of which he was Chairman.  He had therefore had special opportunity of observing and appreciating his many estimable qualities, both of head and heart, and he should like more especially to testify to the thoroughly painstaking and conscientious manner in which he performed every duty which he was called upon to undertake.  Since his duties as Judge-President of the Supreme Court at Kimberley did not occupy all his time, he had frequently been called upon to perform very special work of an important and onerous character, and in the performance of that work, he rendered very signal and lasting service to his country.  He was indeed a wise and upright Judge, and in those days, when so many of their older judges were being removed by death and retirement, they could only hope and trust that those who would follow them might be guided by the same high ideals of duty as animated the learned Judge whose loss the Judge whose loss they deplored that day.
The Solicitor-General (Mr. W.S. BIGBY, K.S.), on behalf of the Bar, associated himself with his Lordship's remarks.
During the sitting, which was a provisional day, no fewer than seven applications were heard for the voluntary surrender of estates in various parts of the Eastern Districts, and one application for compulsory sequestration.  There were also two company liquidations. – Reuter.

Fatalities on the Railway.

Two distressing fatalities occurred this week in the Benoni area.  The first took place near Modera Station on the Geduld railway line between No. 3 and 4 shafts of the State Mine.  A young man names John Edward BEVAN, aged 21, an apprenticed fitter on the State Mines, was working at the crusher station, and it is surmised that he must have attempted to jump on to a passing goods train and in doing so slipped and fell on to the line. The other fatality occurred on the railway deviation.  A young man of 17, named R. PIGG, was knocked down and run over by an engine.  He was removed with all haste to Kleinfontein Hospital, but died a few hours later.
