[[39968]] McGREGOR, David, parents James McGREGOR and Margaret BUCHAN
The late David Macgregor.

The funeral of the late David Macgregor, took place on Saturday last, a large number of friends in buggies, on horseback and on foot following the remains to the grave. The service was read by the Rev. O. E. Hill in a very impressive manner, the reverend gentleman offering up a touching prayer for the widow and the fatherless at its conclusion. In our last issue we omitted mentioning that the deceased, among other good work, was for most in inaugurating the Black- fellows, Creek School, and the schools at Kamerunga and Welcome Pocket, and his efforts in this respect alone should make his memory green. Like many others who strive for the public good he left his wife and five little children hostages to fortune, but we are happy to say, the people of the district have responded nobly to an appeal for aid, and a modest sum has already been subscribed. This, it is expected, will be supplemented by the railway line and the Mulgrave road. With regard to the selection, efforts are being made through Mr. Hartley to induce the Lands Department to relax the rigour of the residence clause, it being actually impossible for Mrs. Macgregor to live there and feed her children. Blacks are still a nuisance in the neighbourhood, but apart from the aboriginals the unfortunate lady must go forth to seek a living unless she is content to sit down and see her children starve. It is certainly a case where the Department could gracefully exercise leniency.

The late David Macgregor,

Another old identity of Cairns, one of the earliest pioneers of the district, has passed away in David Macgregor, who expired in the Hospital yesterday morning. He had suffered for some time with a disorder of the kidneys, and after being in the Hospital, where he had every attention, for a week or two he succumbed in spite of the skill of Dr. Koch. David Macgregor arrived in Cairns by the steamer Lord Ashley in October, 1876, and being of a strongly argumentive turn of mind he soon became a factor in the future destinies of the town. He was a member of the Pioneer Road Board of the early days, and afterwards a member of the Cairns Divisional Board in its iufaucy. He did active service in the Railway League for Cairns in the fight for the Herberton Railway against Port Douglas and Mourilyan, and in other ways proved himself an energe- tic and valuable citizen. He was not in the habit of hatching out a brood laid by someone else, and then crowing over them as if the chicks were his own, as is too often the custom now-a-days. In the early days of Cairns David Macgregor, in partnership with Bill Innis, had the contract for the erection of the first Post-office in Cairns, and also the joy of transporting to and re-erect- ing that valuable edifice in fort Douglas. For some time he carried on the business of baker in the town of Cairns, and only abandoned the trade to save himself and family from being baked as well as the bread. We allude to the first fire in Abbott-street, the result of which destroyed what little property he had, and compelled him to seek fresh fields and pastures new. Lately David had been living on his selection at Myola, but we are afraid be left very little behind him of worldly goods, unless a wife and several young children can be reckoned us valuable commodities, when the bread- winner vanishes never to return. It is to the credit of his old friends and to the people of Cairns that all trouble of putting poor David to his last rest in God's acre has been taken from the widow's hands, an the remains of the poor troubled, turburlent political, Sir Samuel Griffith loving spirit will be buried with all honour. The remains leave St. John's Church to-day at 12 o'clock.

ELMS.—In loving remembrance of Samuel Elms, who died on the 15th November, 1893, aged 21 years.
We miss thee from our home, dear,
We miss thee front thy place.
A shadow o'er our life is cast ;
We miss the sunshine of thy face.
We miss thy kind and willing hand,
Thy fond and earnest care,
Our home is dark without thee ;
We miss thee everywhere.
[Inserted by his affectionate mother-in-law, Mrs. Donald McNeill.]


ELMS.—In loving memory of my dear husband, Samuel Elms. who departed this life on November 15, 1893, aged 21 years.
I'm lonely since my husband died ;
My heart is filled with pain.
And oh ! the dreary night of woe—
I ne'er shall see his face again.
I loved him ; oh ! so tenderly,
And many a bitter tear I've shed ;
For now I hear his voice no more—
He's sleeping with the silent dead.
The face I loved it now lies low ;
Thy fond, true heart is still ;
The hand that often clasped in mine
Lies low in death's cold chill.
Thy will be done, O Lord.
[Inserted by his loving widow, Ellen Elms.]
