MR. DAN PH8fLL8PS, I DEATH Or WELL-KNOWN FIGURE I IN LOCAL SHIPPING CIRCLES. Tho news will be received with genuine I regret by his many friends at the Swan- sea Docks or the death of Mr. Daniel Phillips, the well-known marine surveyor. Last Thursday afternoon Mr. Phiilips left his home at nü, Hawthorne-avenue, and cycled to Langland Bay. There he took the opportunity of hathiv; and I went into the water on two occasions. Tho exertion proved too much for him, and he found in a state of collapse, and was conveyed home in a cab by Mr. D. C. Jonps, of Castle-square. He was at- tended by Dr. Collins Lewis and Dr. Ar- bour Stephens, but passed awav .without regaining consciousness, about 10 o'clock on Friday evening. A remarkable feature in connection with the 6ad event is that Mr. Phillips's gold watch and a Ii wim. of iiloiiey was taken, and his bicycle was also missing. Wo understand, how- I ever, thai, the bicycle has since beert* i-e- | covered. No one had undergone greater domestic I bereavement than Mr. Phillips, lw I having lost through consumption his" wife and all his children, numbering 11, tho last child having died recently. A few months ago he met wIth a motor accident, from which he mads a remark- able recovery. I Mr. HnUips was ono of the bef 1 known ana most familiar figures in ? ?,;ii-ail-,?tr iigiires ill W a 1 û s shipping centres, and there was no important mercantile action connected with these ports where his ex- I pert • c idence w-as not adduced. j When twelve years of ago he was ar- I pTpnticed to Messrs. j Harries Bros., ci the Dry D?ck, and re- j ■ mained with that firm up to the time ùf his death; Lat- terly, however, he had been. doipc a jjreat I deal cf marine surveying for insur- ance companies and other parties. I « He wa probably, it' not ab- solutely, the best known man at the docks." was the remark heard by a "Herald representative vl on he called on Messrs. Harris Bros. this morning. 31 r. Phillips had a kind work for everybody. 1 He always did his best to find people em- ployment when they were out oi work, and many men have lost in a good friend. ?lr. Phillips, who was 6* years of age. had been in the service of Messrs. Harris Bros. >r 52 \ears. I The Funeral. I The funeral took place on Tuesday. The cortege left ti e house, 19, Haw- thorne-avenue, shortly after noon, a shorl: srvice baving previously been conducted thero.
