Death of Mr Jonathan Phillips (FORMERLY OF YSGUBORSTONE). One of the most highly respected residents of Carmarthen has passed aiviay in the pea-son of Mr Jonathan Phillips, who died at 16, Piieton-place, o.n Saturday morning, aged 65 years. Mr Phillips had but lately retired from business as a fanner at \sguborstone, where he had lived the greater part ot his life. He was held in universal respect for his upright and straightforward character. It was an accepted fact aniongst all classes in Carmarthen that Mr Jonathan Phillips would Inot do anything which he did not be- lieve to be honest. He had raised himself to a position., possessing the respect and con- fidence of his fellow townsmen entirely by his own industry and honesty. On several occasions he was returned at the head of the poll for the Board of Guardians. When there were eight to twelve candidates Mr Phillips secured a poll equal to two-thirds of the entiie electorate. In fact, however much ooonle seemed to be divided as to filling the other five placets, they seemed to be prac- tically unamillmous in selecting "Jonathan," as he was familiarly called, for the first. He really was a "Guardian of the Poor," and he knew every poor person in Carmarthen, and pleaded their case before the Board. When he could not persuade hjs fellow- Guardians to put the case o.n the list, he would give the applicant something out of his pocket. This we know him to have done re- peatedly. He was for many years a faithful member .of the Calvinistic Methodist Church at- Water street, a.nd had for some time been a deacon of that chureh. He is survived by a widow and a daughter—Mrs Griffiths, of Manor Farm, Llranllwch. The funeral took place on Wednesday at Water street Chapel. It was the largest public funeral for "men only" seen in the chapel during living memory. The service was conucted by the Rev W. D. Rowlands (pastor). Amongst others talcing part were: Rev Jonathan Marsden., Vicar of Llanllweh Rev Mr Evans, Penygraig; Rev Professor D. E. Jones, Union street; Rev T. N. Phillipson, English Wesileyan; Rev E. B. Lloyd, Bwlch- newydd; Rev H. P. Atkins, Ebenezer; and the Rev iSamuel Evans, Cwmdwyfran. !DI! v j ■*» » ■
