-w- LORD KENSINGTON DEAD. SUDDENLY EXPIRED WHILST SHOOT- j INC. Lord Kensmgt-on, who was on a visit f.n Floors Castle, Roxburghshire, died very sud- danly on Wednesday aitarneon wbi^st shooting at Crooked&ha-ks. Yetiioim. his lore ship, i v, ho appeared tc be in his usual health, drove 01_:t with a shooting party in the mor'iin^ and UJ tue afternoon vrnne crossing a fence, tie suddenly dropped down and expired, f;ü snd- den the fatal y.izure that bis lordyup had breathed Lis la.-it almost before tliose inline [ liately following him could get to his sida. Dr. Rutherford, of Kelso, has viewed the bodj. ⢠anc is uuaertsiood to have no doubt that deatu was due to heart dijse&se. Telegraphing later, the Kei.&o conespctdeat i of the Cenciai News says :âJ he death of Loru Kensington has caused a painfui sensation in the district It appears that his lordship had crossed the fence, and had walked a few paces away, when he was seen to "wgger and fail to the ground. So sudden v. as the fatal seizure thai- his lordship had breathed his last air-iost be;those immediately following hirr; could get to his side. Dr. Rutherford, of Kelso, has viewed the rutly, and is understood to have no doubt that death was due to hccirt disease, as first stated. Lord Kensington sat for many years in the House of Commons, having been returned in until 1885, He was unsuccessful m a ~o.utfc.-t ior die Hornsey Division cf Middlesex in that year, and upon Mr. Gladstone re-gaining ( O-.ver for a few months in lLkib he was made fc peer of the tinted Kingdom and given offics as a Jjord-in-Waiting to her Majcst-. He wa,«. indeed, a Groom-in-Waiting as long ago as 1873, and in the Parliament of 183J-5 served as Controller of the Queens Household. It is. nowever, thieiiy as a Liberal Whip, which otfice he served in virtue of his Court wand, that he will be remembered by our older Par- liamentary hands. He was bracketed with Mr. Adam in all the divisions which closed Mr. Gladstone's Government- cf 12b3.74 and in the Conservative Parliament of 1S74-80- Lord Kensington wa-' a man of extraordinary per- sonal energy, and. in one sense, a serious poli- tician. It may be said of him that., with Sir Cnarles Dilke and Mr. Thomas Ellis, the present Liberal hip, he WM one of the three most rapid walkers known at Westminster in' the last 25 years. To those he liked Lord Kensington was geniality itself. As a rule, he was a severe disciplinarian, and took but unkindly to the gos?ip and social life of the, lobby. He took. for example, an austere view of the duties of a Whip, and on one occasion whiie doing patrol serivce. had a rencontrc' with a well-known follower of Mr. Gladstone, a Welsh representative, though not strictly Welshman, in the present House. The hou. member wished to leave the House. Lord: Kensington declined to allow him to pass through the door. The hon. gentleman con- tested the way, and the Whip had to surrender the road. Lord Kensington seldom re-viute'd ° the House of Commons after his elevation t i the peerage, but one night last session, when the crisis on the Irish Land Bill seemed to be acute, he looked down from the Peers' Gallery He remained faithful to Mr. Gladstone on Home Rule, and died a Libel al. In appearance Ms lordship was not a n an of whom sudden death would be expected, and he will be a disunct loss, to his leader in the t pper House, whom he served as a Whip. The la.te Lord Kensington's famjly name was William Edwardes. title was bestowed in 1776. He was the eldest- son of William, the third lord, by Laura Jane, daughter of the late Cutbbert Eilison, of Hey burn Hall, in the county cf Durham. He was born in 1335, and was. ti.cre.fore, 61 years of age. He suc- ceedfd to the title in 187¿. and married in 1S67 his present wife. Grace Elizabeth, the eldest daughter of the late Robert Johnstone Douglas, of Loc-herbie. Dumfries-shire. Edu- cated at Eton. he was a. PrivyCoum liior.a lord- lieutenant of the Coanty of Pembroke, and a magistrate for Carmarthenshire. He was fa: merl, a lieutenant-colonel in the Coldstream Guards, and his heir, the present lord, who was educated at Eton, is an officer in the Second Life Guards and a deputy-lieutenant for the County of Pembroke Born in 1S68, he is 28 years of age.
