However, 011 Thursday last h" had serious relapse, to which he succumbed. His death is deeply deplored in the town a,, I district, and a familiar figure is removed from the county and loeal public bodies. Mr An- thony was a member of the Board of Guard- ians for nearly 40 years, trustee cf the Aids- worth Charity and the St. C'enydd Lodge of Oddfellows, Caerphiily; and trustee, secretary, and deacon of Bethel Independent Church, Caerphilly.

He was elected a councillor of the County 'Coun- cil 12 years ago, and was subsequently made an alderman, which position he held for 9 years When the Urban District Council Act came into force he was elected a member for the Caerphilly Town Ward, and was made chair- man of the Council, and occupied the chair with great fidelity for six years. For many years he sat as a commissioner of taxes up to his death. On the retirement of his father from the flannel trade he succeeded in the business, and kept the Pandy and Tonyvelin factories, where he employed a. number of men, women, and children weaving Welsh flannels and cloths. He relinquished the busi. ness after the death of his father many years ago. In politics Mr Anthony was a Liberal, and took a very active part during the cam- paign of Mr Alfred Thomas in East Glamor- gan. The funeral will place on Saturday. Before the commencement of the ordinary business at the Caerphilly Police Court on Tuesday, Mr W. W. Leigh, the presiding magistrate, said that upon his arrival at Caer- philly that morning, he was surprised and shocked to hear of the death of their esteemed friend and colleague, Mr Henry Anthony,J.P., and on behalf of his brother magistrates he desired to express their sincere sympathy to the family in their bereavement. They had requested their clerk to convey their sympathy to the family. Mr W. H. Beddoe, on behalf of the solicitors practising in that Court, said that the chair- man's remarks were appreciated equally by them, and tho solicitors felt that by his death they had a lot to grieve over in losing his familiar face on tha Bench. Every person brought before him, whatever the fine or sen- tence, always felt that he had had justice meted out. to him. In moving a vote of sympathy with the re- latives of the late Mr Anthony, Mr James Richards, at the Guardians on Wednesday, said he remembered the time when Mr An- thony was an active and faithful member of the Board. Mr Brinson seconded, and the chairman supported. The vote was carried in siler.ce.
