DJSATH OF MR. C. EDWARDS. 0 As we go to press we learn with deep regret that Mr. Charles Edwards, the well-known cnief clerk of the Chester District Probate Registry, died yesterday (Tuesday) at his residence, Lavister. Only on Tuesday in last week Mr. Edwards was at the office apparently* in his usual health. The next day he was indisposed, and acute pneu- monia setting in he passed away despite all that medical skill could do for him. Deceased was 52 years ot age, and for about 40 years he had been employed at the probate offices. He was of a genial disposition, and his many sterling qualities were greatly appreciated by a wide circle of friends. Mr. Edwards was an enthusiastic Volun- teer, and for many years waa actively associated with the 2nd (Earl of Chester's) V.B. Cheshire Regiment, in which he attained the rank of Captain-Quartermaster. The ability with which he discharged the duties of this position. led him to be selected for the position of Quarter- master to the Cheshire Brigade, and deceased was promoted to the rank of Lieut.-Colonel. Mr. Edwards waa also a. zealous Freemasotn. He had passed through the chair of the Clarence Lodge, was P.Z. of the Grosvcnor Chapter, was P.M. and treasurer of the Earl of Chester's Mark Lodge and P.P.J.W. of the Prov. Mark. In politics Mr. Edwards was a staunch Conservative, and when he resided at Tattenhall some years ago he lendered yeoman service to his party. He was also a Churchman. He leaves a widow and two young daughter, for whom the utmost sympathy is felt.
