Death of hon. j. w.
CULMLR
II was a shock to tbiscommuni-
(y, when it became known that
Captain Culmer, as he was famili-
arly known, had suddenly passed
way.
The deceased gentleman atten-
ded the evening service at Trinity
yesterday, and we are told that he
dressed himself, and started as
usual to go to his office when he
fell down in the hallway,overtaken
by death.
Death is at all times shocking
but when there is a siquence of
deaths, one close to the other as
the death of Mr Culmer follows
that of Dr. Holmes and his that of
Messrs, Hilton anil Fletcher Alburn
it becomes rather more than a
shock.
In his early life the lion. J. \V.
Culmer followed the sen for a stvrt
time, hence the title 1 aptain ; he
then went into the cultivation of
pine-apples and became probably
the most extensiveplanter and the
largest exporter of that fruit, rind
in connection with that business
owned at different limes numlxr
of vessels some of tlwrn the finest
built in the colony At the time of
Itis death lie was President of the
flank of Nassau, President of the
Nassau Fire And Marine Insurance
Co. and also amtnectcd with vari-
ous others of the business 111< r-
prises of the Colony.

He was a member of the House
of Assembly for the District of
Kleuthera which heJias represented
for a period upward of 40 years ;
he was also a member of the Hon.
Executive Council for seven years.
He was also a member of the
Masonic Fraternity ir, Victoria
Lodge No 443,0' winch he was one
of the oldest past matters, J
He was a member and Office
beaier of Trinity Wesleyan Church.
Mr. Cubner's name was widely
known throughout the Colony, and
Ins death removes a promi-
n"nt figure in the business life of
the Colony.
The Tribune respectfully tenders
its sympathy to the bereaved
family.
The funeral will take place at
4 o clock to mm row afternoon, the
body will be laid in the Mortuary
W'esteinCemetery.until later when
it will be taken to TarpumBay for
final interment.
The "Pi ize giving" at the farm
has been postponed until Monday
afternoon next.
"Cl listmas Music", which was
to have been given in Trinity, to-
ntghtj his been postponed until
M'-ndny evening nex'.
It is rumoured 1 lint \V. C. P.
Johnson, Esq.. has been offered a
seat on the Executive Count il in
the room of the Hon James \Y.
Culmer, deceased, and that Mr
Johnson has declined the honour.
J
The Police force under Com
mandment Crawford, which went
to Wilson City a few da\s ago in
the yacht "Ranger" returned this
morning in the tug "Admiral
Dewey" ; it is said that the going
of the Police has in all probability
averted a serious disturbance.
At Fox Hill last night, Mr.
George Weech, a road maker, died
suddenly at his home. He had
been complaining for some time,
but was out yesterday, in the ^err-
ing he stalled from his home to go
to service, but on a threatening ap
parance of rain be returned home,
where be died soon alter.
plumber, was found dead on the
Western bach in the neighbour-
hood of Nassau Street.
The body was taken to the Hos-
pital where a Coronersinquest will
be held.
It appears that this morning
Minns and a friend, Fountain,went
on the beach to make some repairs
to. a boat, both went away for
some purpose, Minns returned first
and on Fount.lin's return he found
Minns lying on the sand dead.

We would direct attention lo
the advertisement of a Bazaar to
be held in St. Matthews School-
room to-morrow (Tuesday) after-
noon.
The Imperial is giving a good
show as usual, this evening. Don't
miss it.
