Death of Mr. Harry Clegg. The death ooourredi, at his residence. Plas Llanfair, Anglesey, on Friday night, of Mr. Harry Clegg, in his 67th year. Mr. Clegg was out and about a few days before, but was un- expectedly taken ÜI" and pneumonia set in. Mr. Clegg was a son of the late Mr. Kay OLegg, of Oldham, and was at one time clerk to the magistrates in his native town. Retiring; from practice many years ago, he purohasedl the beautifully situated estate of Plas Llanfair, Anglesey, from the late Lord Clarence Paget, and since then has resided there. He was a justice of the peace for the counties of Lan- caster, Carnarvonshire, and Anglesey, and D.L. for the last county. In 1892 he was High Sheriff of Anglesey. At the time of his death- he was Chairman of the Carnarvon Harbour Tiusti and President of the Carnarvonshire and Anglesey Infirmary, in which he evinced the greatest interest. At the annual meeting of this institution, which was held on Monday, Mr. Clegg s annual report (which would have been read by himself) was presented. The con- cluding paragraph reads:—"I trust the sub- scribers will appoint a President in my place, as I feel I must cease to act in that capacity, and would urge the advisability of having a yearly change in that office as heretofore, and thus enlisting the active interest of others." Mr. Clegg took an active general interest in public affairs. He was an alderman of the- Anglesey County Council, an ex-officio member of the Bangor and Beaumaris Guardians and of the Finance Committee, of which he was chair- man, and was a member of the North Wales Counties Lunatic Asylum Visiting; Committee. His legal knowledge was very heLpful on the various local benches. He leaves a widow and family. Mr. Harry Clegg (a Carnarvon correspondent writes) was, by reason of the prominent part he took in the public life of the district, a well- known figure in Carnarvon, and the new of his, death came as a painful surprise. Mr. Clegg was most conscientious in all that he took up on behalf of the public, and in no position did he show this trait more thoroughly than as Chairman of the Carnarvon Harbour Trust, of which he had been a member for many years. He was a member of the Royal Welsh Yacht: Ciub and a k,een, supporter of the yachting fix- tures of that club and likewise of the other Menai Straits regattas.
