The death occurred at 6.35 on Saturday morning of Mr Hugh Moore, J.P., part owner of Barambah, Tantitha, and Kenil- worth stations. He enjoyed a wide popu- larity in pastoral circles by his good na-
ture, as also an excellent reputation for his knowledge of stock, particularly in the Wide Bay and Burnett districts. Born in Victoria, he lived nearly all his life in Queensland, being but an infant when his parents came to the State. He was the eldest son of the late Mr Isaac Moore, who predeceased him about six and a half years. After some years of private tuition, he completed his educa- tion at the Brisbane Grammar School, and received five years of commercial training in Brisbane ere assisting his father in the management of Barambah. On the death of his father he was joined in these duties by his brother, Mr Isaac J. Moore. Only 46 years of ago, the de-
ceased was unmarried. Since his health broke down about 10 years ago he has been more or less of an invalid, latterly, being confined to his room at "Killearn,"
Windermere-road, Hamilton, the residence of his mother and sister. Under the best medical and nursing attention he has lin- gered for several months, passing away peacefully with but little suffering. In previous years he took considerable in- terest in local government affairs, being a member of the Nanango and Kilkivan Shire Councils since their existence as divisional boards, and for a term acted as chairman of the latter body. His general knowledge and natural ability not only accounted for his success in pastoral pursuits, but rendered his services in this direction specially valuable. The remains were interred in the Toowong Cemetery yerterday afternoon, impressive services being conducted by Canon Osborn, and the funeral being largely attended. The relatives present were Messrs. Isaac J. Moore, J. F. and H. P. Bergin, and A. S. Gerrand ; while amongst other mourn-
ers were the Hons. J. T. Annear and P.
Murphy, M.M.L.C., and Messrs. W. H.

The late Mr. Samuel Duesbury, who died at his residence, 107 Quay-street, North Quay, on Thursday afternoon, was well known in Brisbane since 1865, when he landed with his family and set up a photographic business in the Valley.
Those were the days of "land orders." Mr. Duesbury had 150 acres granted at 8 Mile Plains, which he promptly sold. The Valley was a struggling hamlet then, and after some years he started business in Queen and Edward streets, his eldest son Horace assisting him. This son after- wards went to America, where he has since died. Some years ago Mr. Duesbury took a trip to England, accompanied by his wife and son. At the time of his death he was aged 88 years all but three
months. He leaves a widow (to whom he was married for 59 years) and four sons, Messrs. Lewis Duesbury (of Camden, N.S.W.), Edwin Duesbury (Western Aus- tralia), Fred. Duesbury (Brisbane G.P.O.), and the Rev. Frank Duesbury (superinten- dent of the Ipswich Methodist Circuit). The family came from Sheffield, in the West Riding of Yorkshire, England.
