DEATH OF LORD ST. HELIER. A DISTINGUISHED CAREER. Great grief has been occasioned by the death of Lord St. Helier, the distinguished ex-President of the Probate, Divorce and Admiralty Division of the High Court, at his London residence, Harley- street. He had been ailing for some time, and he passed peacefully away at 3.15 on Sunday morning. Lady St. Helier being present at the end. The latepeer was born in 1843, eldest son of Bishop Jeung (of Peterborough). He was educated at Harrow and elected to a scholarship at Balliol College, Oxford, where he obtained two firsts. He also won the Stanhope Prize in 1863, and the Arnold j Prize in 1867. A few years later he became a Fellow of Hertford College. He was called to the Bar at the Inner Temple in 1868, and in connection with the civil action of the Tichborne claimant he act as junior counsel. In ecclesiastical practice he soon enjoyed a high reputation. He appeared in the famous Lincoln case in 1890, having been ap- pointed a Q.C. in 1885, and having received appoint- ment as Chancellor for seven dioceses. He was made a judge of the Probate, Divorce, and Ad- miralty Division in 1891 and knighted, and was appointed President of the Division in the year fol- lowing. He afterwards also acted as Judge Advo- cate-General, and for services in that office he was in 1897 made K.C.B. and raised in 1892 to G.C.B. He married in 1881 (her second husband) the Ron. Mrs. Stanley, who has been prominent in philanthropic and social work in conjunction with her distinguished husband. The latter, on account of his failing health, retired from the judicial bench a few months ago, and was created a peer. Lord St. Helier was a member of the Ritual Commission appointed last year, but his illness had prevented him attending any of the meetings of the Commission since his elevation to the peerage. The intelligence of the death of Lord St. Helier was received with deep regret at his Berkshire seat, Arlington Manor, and also in the town of Newbury. Lord and Lady St. Helier during their occupancy of Arlington Manor, which was pur- chased by the late Mrs. Jeune, widow of the Bishop of Peterborough, had- taken the greatest possible interest in all local institutions of a deserving character, and had endeared themselves to the people of the district. Much sympathy is everywhere expressed with Lady St. Helier and her daughters, the Hon. Mrs. 'St. John Brodrick and Mrs. Allhusen.
