DEATH OF MR. COWARD. His Public Career. It is with mueh regret that we chronicle the death of our respected townsman, Mr W. H. Coward, J.P., which took place at his residence, Rose Mount, Prestatyn, on Monday. Mr Coward had been in indifferent health for a long time, but in November last he had to take to his bed, so that his illness has been a lingering one. He bad been in a very weak state for weeks past, therefore the end did not come unexpectedly. Mr Coward was 59 years of age, and up to the time of his last illness was to all ap- pearances a robust, healthy man. The death of their eldest son some time ago was a Bad blow to both Mr and Mrs Coward, from which the deceased gentleman did not appear to recover. Having resided at Prestatyn for the past 20 years. Mr Coward became closely associated with local public affairs, being made a member of the Urban Council at its formation in 189(3. He was the second chairman of this body, and continued to be a member till his death. When in good health, he took an active part in all the doings of the Council, and was looked upon as a most useful member, gaining the highest esteem of his colleagues. In the days of the old School Board, Mr Coward was a member of this body. He was a Churchman, and held the Office of Vicar's Warden for the past three years his practi- cal knowledge being of great value during the carrying out of extensions to Christ Church. In politics he was a Conservative, and held the post of Chairman of the loeal Constitu- tional Club for 8 or 9 years. He was made a Justice of the Peace for the County of Flint in 1899. Through his long connection with Prestatyn, he had become well-known, and his genial manner had won him many friends. He was highly respected and much esteemed by all with whom he had come in contact. He owned a considerable amount of property in Prestatyn, and was also proprietor of a successful plumber's, etc., business in Lodge Lane, Liverpool. Mr Coward leaves a widow and family of eleven to mourn his loss, and much sympathy is extended to them in their bereavement. The interment will take place at Smithdown Road Cemetery, Liverpool, on Saturday afternoon. The cortege will leave the house at 11-15, a service being held at Christ Church at 11-30, and the remains will be con- veyed to Liverpool by the 12-23 train.
