MR. JOHN BOLGER

THE late . Mr. John Bolger, who passed away recently at the age of 73 years, was a former. councillor and president of the Morwell Shire. The late Mr. Bolger was born at "The Terricks" near Echuca, and in his youth went to Kalgoorlie, Western Australia, where he was employed at a mine managed by his grandfather. He returned to Echuca and forty years ago came to Yinnar and shortly afterwards took up residence in Morwell. He was employed by the late Mr. E. Kleine and the late Mr. G. Billingsley, senr., and in 1919 took over the latter's carrier undertaking business, which he conducted up to the time of his death.

He was intensively interested in local affairs, and took an active part in all matters connected with Morwell. He was a member of the Morwell Shire Council for a period, and served .one term as president; his interest in the Morwell. Shire-Maryvale Band was keen and he assisted in placing the band on a solid foundation. He fought hard to have a swimming pool established in Morwell: he was an office-bearer of the Australian Natives Association: a member of the St. Patrick's Race Club; a member of the Morwell Waterworks Trust and Sewerage Authority; of the old Mechanics Institute. Practically every organisation in Morwell received the. benefit of his advice and assistance, and he was a staunch worker for the Morwell Sacred Heart Church. He is survived by his widow, Jane. Mary, to whom he was married in 1914 at Morwell: Thomas (Rosedale), Agatha (Mrs. Haines, Eltham), Mary (Mrs. O'Bryan, Morwell) and Roger (Morwell). A son, Mar tin, predeceased him. He is survived by thirteen grandchildren.

OBITUARY.

M. Bolger.
Another link with the past has snapped in the lamented death of Mr Martin Bolger, at the age of 59, on Wednesday last, from hemorrhage of the brain. Deceased had been ailing for about 12 months, but the end came so suddenly as to cause a great shock to the family and his many friends. He was paying a visit to Mr Grimison, at whose residence the death occurred, without any warning. Mr Bolger was a native of Geelong, and after carrying on business at Moama for many years as representative of Watson and Co., Bendigo, stock and station agents, he migrated to the Balranald district some six years ago, first residing at Emu Park, and afterwards moving to Condoulpe, from which place the funeral started on Friday. Deceased was very-popular with all classes, and deep sympathy, will be felt for his widow and, family of five sons and four daughters, whose loss is a heavy one. He also leaves a sister (Mrs Sprewan, of Echuca) and two nieces, Mesdames McBean and McVean, late of Moulamein, and another relative is Mr P. Byrne, first cousin. Mr Bolger took an active interest in all local matters, and was a member of the P. and A. Society committee. He was, without doubt, "a good sort", and his absence will be keenly felt for many years.
