DEATH OF CAPTAIN JAMES COPPACK. We regret to record the death of Captain James Coppack, which took place on Sunday morning, about four o'clock, at his residence Nine Houses, Shotton, at the age of 84 years. Captain Coppack had been remarkably healthy and vigorous, and up to the time he was seized with an internal disease, was in the enjoyment of his usual health and activity. His disease was of such a character that he was unable to partake of any nourishment to maintain his strength, and as a result he grew weaker each day till the end coming as above stated. Captain Coppack, although not having the advantage of a modern education, was a man of a high standard of intelligence, he was a close student of theology, English history, and politics, and among his rural neighbours he exercised great influence and was justly respected and esteemed by them. In this village he was well and familiarly known. He had considerable interest in shipping property, being the owner and manager of several fine coasting schooners. He was also a director of the Dee Shipowners' Mutual Insurance Associa- tion, and his practical knowledge of shipping and sound judgment made him a highly valued member of the directorate of this important Association. During his early years he had followed the sea as an occupation, rising rapidly to the command of a ship. He took a deep interest in his work, proved an excellent ship's master, and was so successful in that capacity that he was enabled to retire when in the prime of life. In his later years he took a prominent part in politics, being an ardent Liberal. He was an active member of the Methodist New Connexion Church and a generous supporter of every good movement, and until precluded by advancing years an enthusiastic worker in connection with this cause. Locally bis genial presence will be sadly missed. Flags are at half- mast on the shipping offices and ships in port. Deceased leaves a daughter and three sons, one of the latter being Mr. Samuel Coppack, provision dealer, Chester, a member of the Chester Town Council. The interment of Captain James Coppack took place on Wednesday, amid every manifesta- tion of sorrow. Previous to the cortege leaving the deceased's residence, a short service was conducted by the Rev. J. C. H. Bevington. Along the route to the Methodist New Connexion Chapel blinds were drawn, shutters put up, and the deepest respect shewn. Arriving at the chapel a portion of the burial service was read by the Rev. J. C. H. Bevington, and the deceased's favourite hymn was sung. An impres- sive address was delivered by the Rev. Ezra Johnson, of Chester. Leaving the chapel the cortege proceeded to Hawarden parish church- yard, where the burial took place. The coffin, which was of polished oak with brass furniture, was covered with beautiful floral wreaths. The following was the inscription on the coffin :—" James Ceppack, died January 13th, aged 84 years." The officiating ministers at the graveside were the Revs. J. C. H. Bevington, T. Alty, and Ezra Johnson. The chief mourners were as follows:—Mr. S. Coppack, Captain James Coppack, and Mr. Joseph Coppack (sons), Mrs. J. Green (daughter), Mr. John Coppack (brother), Mr. J.
