Carew Gardner and asst death of the Hon. James Swan. A Cable message was received at the of Ioe of messes. Wilson Newman Wilson and hem Ming yesterday conveying the intelligence that the Hon. James Swan ,had died in the Mediterranean sea on Board the . Jel Unga on the 2gth May. Or. Swan waa with his wife on his Way to England where he in tended staying for some Tolyo months. The deceased gentleman was in feeble health when he left Brisbane and Many old friends who bade him Good Bye were doubtful As to whether they would see him again. On reach ing thursday Island however mrs. Swan wired that her husband was very much better and quite himself again. No particulars As to the cause of death have been received but doubtless his advanced age for or. Swan had reached his 80th year together with the Oli Matio changes experienced on the voyage wore in some measure the cause of his death. Or. Swap though not the oldest resident of Brisbane is truly one of its pioneers he having in 1846 taken up his abode Here and with the exception of two occasions when he visited Scotland has resided Here continuously up to the time when to boarded the Jel Unga. His first acquaintance with Australia dates from the year 1837, when the Rev. Or. Lang brought him to Sydney from Glasgow. Or. Swan had at that time been apprenticed to the printing Trado in Glasgow and on his arrival in Sydney was looked upon As a decided acquisition to the staff of the colonist of which paper or. Lang was the proprietor. One of or. Swan s i colleagues on the colonist was or. T. W. Hill who was for Many years Printer and publisher of the Brisbane courier but who lately retired from that position on account of failing health. In 1841, when the colonist ceased i publication or. Swan joined the staff of Tho by ency Herald. He did not remain there Long however. To took to farming pursuits though experience proved to him that to Start at a time when the condition of the Solo ii was so Low As it was in the Early forties was a mistake and a Money losing affair. When in 181g or. Sidney Lyons started the Afore ii Bay courier he prevailed upon or. Swan to publish the Poper and it was under these that the deceased gentleman made his acquaintance with Brisbane. Or. Lyons getting into monetary difficulties some eighteen months later the Plant became the property of or. Swan who continued the proprietorship until 1859, when the paper was purchased by the late Hon. T. B. Stephens and Beamo the Brisbane courier. Or. Lyons having in 1850 squared his finances established the free press but it was Short lived the experience of or. Swan and the policy of the courier Seo Rod for it a Victory Over its opponent and the free press soon died. As old residents know anti transportation and separation wore in the Early Days the two questions which almost alone agitated the minds of the Brisbane Folk on Ono Side and Tho squatters on the other and in Rospert of both or. Swan identified himself most prominently " with the popular Side. He was also an ardent Baptist being a member of what was known As or. Lang s Church now the official Resi Dence of Tho government Printer in William Street and when the presbyterians congregationalists and baptists separated for those three bodies formed or. Lang s Oliu Rotor. Swan was Ono of the few Mon who brought about the erection of the old Baptist of Huron in wharf Stroot. The deceased gentleman also took considerable interest in Public affairs. He for some years filled an Aldermani chair and Throe times that of mayor. During his torm of office he did Nuol to bring about the erection of Victoria Bridge a work which if costly in the extreme was one of absolute necessity. In 1878 he was called to Tho upper House where he has continued to sit As a stanch Liberal and an admirer of sir s. W. Griffith. Tho deceased gentleman was born in Glasgow in 1811, and was therefore 80 years of age.? social gathering at the Centennial Hall. A social gathering of members of the Church of England waa hold last opening at the Cen Tennial Hall a a sort of inauguration of the annual synodical mooting which takes place to Day. The Obj oot of this social congregation was mainly to introduce to metropolitan synods men their Brethren from Tho Outor world of Queensland and in a Largo degree it was sumo Essul. A very Large number of ladies and gentlemen assembled including his Excel Lency the governor lady Norman miss Norman Misa Grace Norman and Captain Strachey aide de Camp. The proceedings throughout Wero informal in character. The ladies and gentlemen As they arrived took their scats in any part of the Hall which they desired to select or drifted round from group to group of their acquaintance conversing merrily and helping each other to enjoy the time they were to spend together. It waa in All to spots a social evening. For the amusement of those who were not Dis posed for conversation Signor Giuseppe Truda s string band had bean engaged and these musicians performed a number of selections in oboe Lent style. There Wero Only two speeches. The first was made by the Bishop of Brisbane or. Webbe who con tented himself with welcoming in the most cordial terms the country members of Synod and with the expression of the Hope that this new departure would to the commence Mont of a Long series of similar social gatherings in tonne option with the work of the Church. The Rev. 3? Whitington following directed his remarks to the furtherance of the Brockhampton Bishopric scheme. To maintained although a new Comer to the Colony that there was no Church movement in Queensland which in importance compared with the establishment of a Bishopric in the Central districts of Queensland. It was not the question of supplying the wants of a particular District merely but the question of establishing a now Centre of Church life and spiritual Energy. It was Felt throughout Tho Church of England that there was a growing need for episcopal supervision and in some places the Bishops had been obliged to Call to their Aid the services of assistant Bishops. To knew comparatively Little of life in Queens land As yet but in. His native Colony South Australia he knew thai no sooner did the Bishop of Adelaide go upon inf necessary visits to the outlying districts of3 his diocese than the clergy in the City Felt that they missed him and that it would be Well if he could always be with them. To under stand that the Bishop of Brisbane was in a somewhat similar position. The proposal was not of an experimental character for he had Learned that the creation of Tho Bishopric of North Queensland had in twelve years in creased the number of clergymen in that diocese fivefold. He maintained that such a j movement was one that called for support from the whole of the Colony. The Bishop of Brisbane had always impressed upon his flock that the spirit and life of the Church was not congregational but diocesan and if members would Only look at the matter from that Point of View and feel that they wore personally and individually responsible for taking up a movement such As the creation of a new Bishopric it would not be Long before it was absolutely in existence. The total sum asked for was �10,000, which would provide but a very slender income for the new Bishop but those Church members who could Rise to the knowledge of what the establishment of this Central Queensland Bishopric would mean to the Church would understand that there was Here presented to them an Opportunity of self sacrifice of which they certainly should Avail themselves. Applause they should feel that this was a great Call made upon the Church to which each member should make an individual response. If they did so he would venture to say it would not be Many months before the amount of Money necessary for the establish ment of the Eoo Hampton Bishopric was an accomplished fact. Cheers after this address refreshments were handed round and the ladies and gentlemen spent / a ?. " after several questions had been answered the meeting closed with the Benediction. The shearers dispute a writing policy. Constitutional measures Best.

In accordance with written instructions from the strike committee the outside Union Campa Are preparing to come into Barcaldine and the whole of the foot Mon at Isis Ford left that Placo this morning. The chairman of the. Strike committee upon hearing the new circulated that a party of horsemen had left Blackall armed and rationed immediately wired to or. Mitchell general Seo rotary of the shearers Union and ascertained that All the Mon Wero in Camp on saturday. Or. Ryan who has resumed the chairmanship of the strike committee informs to and his information has always been reliable that most urgent instructions have been sont to All the Camps not to interfere in any Way Wilt the from labourers or to create any Dis tuba cos. He is convinced that strictly constitutional measures Are the Wisest and Best and that any resort to violence will defeat those Meas pics. He has great influence Over All the unionists and although far away from this Centre some reckless men May do damage to grass or fences it will not be worse than has happened during any previous years. As far As the Groat body of men Are concerned the stations now Are far safer than they were months before the strike commenced at All events so far As All stations on this Side of the Thom son River Are concerned. A Small party of horsemen have been camped at Arri Lalah during the last few Days and it is possible that they May endeavour to interview the Bim Erah free labourers who Start to Morrow for that place but there is not the least danger of any Molesta Tion being resorted to. The fact that these men All of them being new to the Western country were camped within twelve Miles of bar Caldine for three Days without Bein interviewed and that the free labourers for Northampton Downs passed through without the least interference bears out the statement of the labour leaders that no further resistance is intended. Their whole intention is directed to bringing As Many men As possible into the main Camp and to spending their funds economically. Thoy still labour under the impression that the squatters cannot obtain sufficient labour for the general shearing and will be compelled to employ the unionists again on their own terms. �2000 Worth of magnificent Winter suiting May be seen at messes.
