DEATH OF MK. C. W. DUTTON. I We deeply regret to announce the death I which occurred at noon on Tuesday, at his residence at Guilden Sutton, of Mr. Charles William Dutton, corn factor, of this city. Mr. Dutton, who was in his 45th year, had been ailing about a fortnight, suffering from jaundice. He was attended by Dr. Parry, and some days ago Dr. Duff was called in consulta- tion. Despite the efforts of those gentlemen, however, he passed away. The sixth son of the late Mr. John Rowe Dutton, wine merchant, of this city, who resided at Saughall, the deceased was a member of the old Cheshire family of De Dutton. His genial disposition won him host of friends, and the courage and independence with which he always expressed his views gained him the admiration even of those who disagreed with him. He was well known and extremely popular among agriculturists in this part of the county, and for several years held the appoint- ment of hon. secretary to the Chester Farmers' Club, from which he only retired at the appoint- ment some months ago of Mr. A. P. Smith to the secretaryship. Mr. Dutton was an enthusiastic Oddfellow, and as hon. secretary to the Guilden Sutton Lodge of the Order he had been the means of raising it to a position of financial prosperity. For a number of years Mr. Dutton discharged the duties of churchwarden at Guilden Sutton Church, and he ever took a practical interest in parochial matters.. Almost one of his last acts of parochial service was in connection with a concert recently held at Guilden Sutton on behalf of the school fund. It is no exaggeration to say that his death will leave a blank in the parish that it will be almost impossible to fill. Mr. Dutton's career in public life was, though short, one of great usefulness. He three times contested seats on the Town Council, on one of those occasions being defeated. He was first elected in 1897 to fill the vacancy in St. John's Ward caused by the elevation of Mr. Williams to the aldermancy, his rival being Mr. J. W. Huke. His term of office expired last November, when he was re-elected, being second on the poll. Mr. Dutton leaves a widow and five children, whose ages range from three to sixteen years, and for whom the greatest sympathy is felt. The deceased also leaves two surviving brothers, Mr. Arthur Dutton, of London, and Mr. T. J. Dutton, The Beeches, Saltney, and two sisters, Miss Dutton and Mrs. James Storrar, junr.
