Obituary. MR P. J. WHELDON. One of the mcst prominent public men in Wales has passed away in the death of Mr P. J. Wheldon, which took plaoce at his resi- dence in King street early on Friday morning. b "Wheldon had only been absent from his duties for a few days when he succumbed to an attack of pneumonia. The deceased who was 63 years of age was a native of North Wales, being a. son of the Late Mr John WheMon, of Llwyncelyn, Llan- beris. He had spent the greater part of his life in the service of the National Provincial Bank, and had been manager of the Carmar- then Branch since the year 1904. He was a most active public man. He was one of the pioneers of the Alltymynydd Sanatorium, which may be said to have given the inspira- tion to the King Edward1 Memorial Scheme, and in the early days of the movement did more perhaps than any one man to awaken public opinion on the subject. He was an enthusiastic Welshman, and was one of the founders of the Carmarthen Cymmrodorion Society, which did so much to bring about the popular observance of the Welsh National Festival at Carmarthen. He was one of the committee of the National Eisteddfod held at Carmarthen in he year 1911 and rendered excellent service on the Musical Sub-Oom- mittee. He was Borough treasurer, treasurer of the Carmarthenshire Infirmary, member of the Oamarthensibire Antiquarian Society, a member of the Executive of the Welsh National Memorial, and a governor of Aber- vstwvth College. The deceased who was a member of Zion Presbyterian Church, is survived by a widow, a son, and a daughter. His brother, the Rev T. J. Wheldon, Calvinistic Methodist minis- ter, Bangor, also survives him. The' funepall took place on Tuesday after- noon; Practically aill business was suspended in Carmarthen, and an immense crowd atten- ded the funeral. Zion Presbyterian Church was unable to hold the large congregation which sought admission to the first part of the service. The fallowing: ministers took part in the laervice at Zion: Revs W. D. Rowlands, pastor of Water st. C.M. Church, Carmarthen; G. A. Edwards, Oswestry; Arthur Hughes, pastor of Zion Church; and J. M. Jones, Merthyr Tydvil. A funeral march was played by Mr Harold Malkin, F.R.C.O. The Rev Arthur Hughes said: My duty is not easy this afternoon. I take it what I am expected to do is to express what our presence really means. I take it our presence this afternoon is a tribute to the memory of our late friend, Mr Wheldon, and in expressing what that tribute really means I fear there is no danger of anythring like exaggeration. At times like these there is a great danger of exaggeration in what one says, but I feet sincerely to-day, however strongly one may express oneself, there is no danger of any- thing of the kind. We come here with a great sense of sorrow and loss—sorrow and loss which none of us can ever measure. But our sorrow is not: untempered, for Mr Whel- don has left a memory which is rich and fair. He has left among us and throughout our country much evidence of a rich and truly wonderful life. He was, as we all know, a man of large dimensions—(physically fine, a man of strong intellect, but above all a man with a, large and tender heart. And all this was consecrated to fine and notble purposes. We can judge a man by the fruits of his life, and the fruits are still with us. As evidence of his activities let me briefly mention some of the work with which he was associated. He was treasurer of the Borough Corporation, Bn active member of our Infirmary Committee, a member of the Magisterial Bench, one of the most active members of the Cymmrodorion Society, of which he was a former president; president of the Chamber of Commerce, and, J Union, one of the most active members of the District Nunsimg Association, the Mayor's Relief Committee, and of the Farmers' Society. These and others are some of the interests he had in this town, to say nothing of the wider and national interests, of which his work for the West Wales Sanatorium and in connection with the King Edward Memorial and also the University Court, are examples. He was not merely associated with these in name, but he was one of the prime and most active workers in everything. These Are evi- dences of the life of the man whose memory to-day we are revering, and there are other evidences as well. Many to-day are mourning the loss of a good and true friend: with manv men who work ba,rd we ceannot always make friends, but here was a man, not only a, public worker, but a friend of the individual, and a vast number of individuals. How many are there who have known his help in dierent ways? how many are there throughout this country, and in parts of England, whom he ¡ has comforted, consoled and assisted in the dark days? I venture to say no genuine appeal for help, no sight of need, has ever left Mr Wheldon untouched. He was It man who responded quicker and more readily than anyone I have known. It was thus he Jived— giving his life, giving his body-and it was because he gave his life, his intellect, his re- sources, and his sympathy that he ended his (life at a, comparatively early age. Another evidence of the man was his range of friend- ships; with ease and grace he moved among the greatest, and wiwth equal ease and grace he was loved by and moved among the low- liest and the poorest. But primarily I think Mr Wheldon was a religious man-that was the prime note of his life. Amid all his many activities I think I can sincerely say that he gave his very best and his greatest to this little church here since he has been associated with it. He gave his best always to the ser- vice of God and the extension of His King- dom a Sunday School teacher, and deeply loved by his class, constantly at the prayer meetings and inspiring us with his prayers, controlling the music of the church, and giving himself in every way where the church showed a need. Truly I think it can be fiaid that our late friend was a man of God. Our tosa can never be measured; At was a loss to the nation, we can say that without exaggera- tion it is certainly a loss to our town, a great loss to his friends, and a deep and irreparable Joss to this little church. But I am sure we to-day feel for those whoso loss is greatest, and that our sympathy will not end with our attendance at this service. The work to which Mr Wheldon devoted himself has still to be carried on, and if we are to be true friends of his wo ighelf give ourselves in this town and throughout the country to the work for which he lived and an which he died. The Rev J. 31. Jones, M.A., Merthyr Tydfil then delivered a short sermon from Job xiv., 14-15, "If a man die shall he live again ? All the days of my appointed time will I wait till my change come. Thou shall call and I will answer thee; thou wilt have a desire to the work of thy hands." These, lie said, were the pantings of a great spirit, wrestling with the powers of destiny; not of sad resignation, but a man fighting bravely for his life, for his soul, People were too prone to look upon Job as a type of patient suffering, but Job was more than that. It was not the patience of mere I resignation, but of unbending, unyielding, undaunted /resolution :and perseverance. It was the brave and patient struggle of a human I soul for its right, for its freedom. There was no trace of pessimism in this chapter; it was strong sorrow, deep and strong. It was true that human life was transitory, short and batiated with trouble, but at he same time it was not insignificant. God watched man closely, remembered his cteps, and when man fell God made up for it. Human life had divine interest—it was a wiarfare for God, for humanity and for the value which God saw in history. It was a period cf military service in which the Almighty fixed the length ot months and days, and it was for man to ve- main in the ranks, facing the foe, enduring, unyielding, undaunted until the word of com- mand came to retire, and make room for someone else. This was religion, true religion Concluding, Mr Jones said: Of my friend Pierce Wheldon, a friend of nearly thirty years, I cannot-trust myself to say m'ic beyond this, that he fought the good fight he finished his course to the very end, :J¡.](l he kept the faith. All the days of his appointed time he waited to the last week. Now God has called him, and he has answered; for God had a longing for the work of his hands. We are proud of it; we are proud of the memory of it-God was pleased with it, and in due time He called it." The interment took place at the Cemetery, where the Rev J. M. Jones officiated, and the hymn "Wrth gofio'r Jerusalem fry" was sung by a joint choir of Water street and Zion The chief mourners were Miss Enid Whel- don (daughter), Miss G. Wheldon (niece), Lieut.

At the annual meeting of the Carmarthen Lite/ary and Scientific Institute on Tuesday evening the Chairman, Mr Henry Howell, J.P., fcaid he thought it would be fitting if the meet ng passed a vote of condolence with the fam'ly of their late treasurer, Mr Wheldon, who, had been so suddenly and unexpectedly called away. They all knew that Mr WheLdon was a very busy man. and occupied with a great number of matters in which he took a deep interest, and the att-en-tiont o which necessarily t-cok up a great deal of his time. In consequence of these many engagements Mr Wheldon was not able to be with them as often as they would have liked, or as often as he would have wished. The Secretary (Mr A. J. Evans) was in- structed to convey the vote of sympathy to the family, the members standing in silence. A vote of condolence was also sent from the Borough Bench, on the proposition of the Mayor. A similar vote has been passed by < the Carmarthen Chamber of Commerce, of which deceased was president. the greatest, and with equal ease and grace MR H. LL. LEWIS. Mr Henry Llewelyn Lewis died 011 Friday at the residence of his parents, Morfa House, Carmarthen. The deceased who was the third son of Mr B. A. Lewis, the manager and secretary of the Carmarthen Gas Co., was 26 years of age. He had been an invxAd for years, and had to undergo several operations.

He was Assistant-Scoutmaster of the Carmarthen Troop, a member of the choir of Christ Churoh, and a member of the Church of England Men's Society.
