OBITUARY

MRS. T. CHAPMAN

News has been received by cable of the death in Cardiff, on February 25th, of Mrs. T. CHAPMAN, mother of the Rev. T. CHAPMAN, of the Baptist Church, and of the Rev. A.H. CHAPMAN, B.Sc., also a former Baptist Minister of this City.
Born in 1840, Mrs. CHAPMAN had reached the ripe age of 77 years, and this, seeing she had never enjoyed robust health, is a cause for much gratitude to God.
Four years ago a cable was received announcing the unexpected death of Mr. T. CHAPMAN. Owing to the kindness of the Church members, it was arranged for the Pastor and his family to visit the Homeland.
It is given to few mothers to supply a Church with two Pastors, as in this case. The ministry of the Rev. A.H. CHAPMAN, B.Sc., was highly appreciated, and that of his brother, the Rev. T. CHAPMAN, has extended into a period of nine years.
Mrs. CHAPMAN possessed an exceptionally Christian character, strong in faith, and calm in her spirit. Her memory will ever be honoured by her children as the one who lived for Christ, and through whose life and prayers they have also been led to follow and to serve Him as their Lord and Saviour.

OBITUARY

REV. FATHER DE LACEY
From Our Own Correspondent.
ESTCOURT, February 28
The passing of the Rev. Father John DE LACEY, O.M.I. (briefly reported in the "Witness" yesterday), marks the closing of a career of great activity and usefulness in his Church.
He will be remembered with kindliest feelings by many old pupils as the founder of St. Charles' College, where the MARIST Brothers are today continuing the fine work which owes its inception to him.
Born of sturdy Tiperary stock, he came to South Africa as a deacon forty-nine years ago, and was ordained by Bishop JOLIVET.
In 1876 he laboured in Pretoria; thence he was transferred to Johannesburg in 1887, where he started the flourishing mission of to-day.
During the Boer War he was removed to Pretoria by the Dutch military authorities, and in "Pretoria from Within" (H.J. BATTS), the following mention of him is found:- "Father DE LACEY, of the Roman Catholic Church, managed to get out (to the camp at Watervall) more often, and on other days than Sundays.
He simply insisted on going, and more than once went out without a pass. He was able now and again to bluff the guards, in order to get in to minister the sick and dying.
His opportunities, however, were short-lived, but as long as he could he did grand service, though, to his horror, many Roman Catholics were allowed to died and be buried without the attendance of a clergyman, either during their dying moments or at the internments in the burial plot.
The (Dutch) Government committed the grave mistake of sending the eminent Father over the border. They saw it when too late, and wiring to Delagoa Bay, whither he had gone, offered him permission to return, which he declined."
He was the "Prefect Apostolique" of the Church, and the Father Superior of the Johannesburg Mission from 1897 to 1902, and laboured also at Pietersberg, Klerksdorp, and Potchefstroom.
Failing health compelled the relinquishment of his more active work, and about eighteen months ago he came to the Augustinian Convent in Estcourt. He was stricken down last Friday, and from Sunday was unconscious until the end came on Tuesday evening last, when, after great suffering, borne with fortitude and resignation, and closely clasping his beloved crucifix, he calmly passed away to "where, beyond these voices, there is peace."
The funeral obsequies were attended by all the Sisters of the Convent, with the pupils and staff of the school, and several residents of the town, and were conducted by Father SCHAVE, the Superior from Johannesburg, assisted by Father BOLD.
Beautiful floral tributes were sent from Mr. and Mrs. SOUFFERT and Philippe, Mrs. Edwin WOODS, Mr. and Mrs. F. HAMM, Mr. and Mrs. DRUMMOND, and Mr. and Mrs. PETTERVILLE.
The coffin was of solid oak, with silver fittings, and bore the inscription, "Father John DE LACEY, 72 years."
He was laid to rest in the lovely little cemetery of the Convent with every manifestation of sorrow and deep respect.
To his surviving sisters in Ireland the sympathy of all who knew and honoured their revered brother is extended in their loss.

MRS. J.J. HODSON

As already reported in the "Witness" on Friday last, one of our oldest colonists passed peacefully away on Thursday afternoon at Caversham - Mrs. HODSON, the wife of Mr. J.J. HODSON, J.P., of Caversham, Lidgetton. To very many the news will come as a great shock, for of her it may truly be said that she was beloved by all who knew her.
Her health for some time has not been good, and her advanced age - well into the eighties - made it clear lately that the end would not be far off.
It will be remembered that about two years ago he had pleasure in recording the celebration of the diamond wedding of Mr. and Mrs. HODSON. Of over fifty descendants, three only have pre-deceased them - the last being a grandson killed in Flanders, whose death we noted a few months ago.
Their eleven children are all living. Their eldest son is farming in the Free State, another in Rhodesia, and the remainder of the family is scattered about in various parts of Natal - one being Magistrate at Mpofana.
The funeral took place at Caversham on Friday afternoon, and was largely attended by relatives and friends.
To Mr. HODSON and the sorrowing children and grandchildren we beg to offer our sincere sympathy.

MR. PAUL WOLHUTER

We regret to announce the death, which occurred suddenly near Greytown on Saturday morning, of Mr. Paul WOLHUTER, an old and respected resident of the district.
Mr. WOLHUTER, who had reached the aged of 65, appeared to be in his customary good health and spirits when he retired on Friday night, but was found dead in his bed by his wife on Saturday morning.
The deceased was the fourth son of the late Mr. F.M. WOLHUTER, one of the original Voortrekkers, who, it is interesting to remember, was the owner of the site on which the present General Post Office in Maritzburg is situated.
The deceased leaves a wife and son, and his sister is Mrs. G. LAMOND, of this City. His son, Mr. Louis WOLHUTER, of the Resident Magistrate's Staff at Vryheid, left that town for Greytown immediately on hearing of his father's death, but unfortunately he missed the railway connection, and was compelled to remain in Maritzburg yesterday.
The remains were removed from the deceased's farm "Kleinfontein", to Greytown, and were buried from the Dutch Reformed Church yesterday afternoon.

News was received by the last European mail of the death, in London, of Mr. William CALDER, at one time Head Master of the Maritzburg College, and afterwards of the Ladies' College, Edinburgh, Scotland. The late Mr. CALDER will doubtless be remembered by many of the older colonists of Natal, who will be interested to know that he lived the last few years of his life in London, and was highly respected by his friends as a man of fine sympathies and genial disposition.

OBITUARY

MR. JAMES HOOPER
From Our Own Correspondent.
GREYTOWN, March 25.
The many friends of Mr. James HOOPER, or as he was more familiarly called "Jim," will learn with deep regret of his sudden death yesterday. It appears he was in his usual health, and had not yet risen, when he called to his wife that he was feeling faint, and on reaching his side, she found he had fainted. On recovering he fainted again, and shortly afterwards passed peacefully away, death being due to a clot of blood on the heart.
The funeral took place at Greytown yesterday afternoon, being largely attended.
Rev. E.W. COOMBE ptrformed the last sad rites, and the cortege was a large and representative one. The coffin was covered with beautiful floral tributes.
The deceased leaves a widow and four children to mourn their loss.
