Mr. Wilton Hack, formerly a well-known resident of Glenelg, died at Beverley, Western Australia, on Tuesday. He was born at Echunga on May 21, 1843, and wa? a son of the late Mr. Stephen Hack, who arrived in South Australia in 1837. He was educated at the Sandbach Grammar School in Cheshire, and at the Heidelberg University, Germany. He then joined his father. Mr. Stephen Hack, at his station. The Long Desert, and afterwards took up country as a station-owner between the Long Desert and North-West Bend, River Murray, which he named Pinnaroo. He was forced to relinquish his holding owing to the drought of 1867. He next became drawing master at Prince Alfred College, and Mr. Caterer's Grammar School, Nor   wood. Shortly after he married Miss   Anna Stonehouse, a daughter of the Rev.   George Stonehouse, he entered the Bap- tist ministry, and as chaplain at the Yatala Labor Prison. He sailed for Japan as a missionary in 1873, and acted as such for five years. Lack of funds led to his having to abandon mission work. Coming     back to Australia be engaged in mining in New South Wales. He successfully floated the Foley mine at Bowling Alley Point, Mr. Richard Hamilton, of the Great Boulder mine, being the first manager. He also floated the Anderson's Flat alluvial mine, the Golden Chance at Hanging Rock, and the Pine Ridge Diamond mine in New South Wales. He started the Village Settlement at Mount Remarkable   in 1893. Mr. Hack later became greatly interested in Theosophical work, and jour- neyed several times to India and Ceylon, studying the religions of the East, gaining a fund of knowledge and writing exten- sively on the subject. At the time of the Western Australian gold rush he went   to England, and was appointed manager of the East Murchison Gold Mining Syndi- cate, which took over the old Eagle's Nest mine in the Mount Margaret dis- trict, which proved a failure. He was a most interesting lecturer, and up to the last year or two of his life delivered ad-   dresses upon Japan and the East with great success. He could converse on many subjects with ability, and owing to his   many travels and varied experiences was a   most interesting companion. He had a special gift in art. and painted beautiful pictures both in oils and watercolors. His collection of paintings has been distributed   amongst his children, of whom four are living, namely Mr. M. S. Hack of Upper Blackwood, Western Australia; Mr. C. C. Hack of Bokarup.
