Cr. Josiah J. W. Flintoft, of South Yarra, Victoria, who died on Monday, at the age of 69 years, was mayor of Prahran three times (during which he received H.R.H. the Duke of York), and was a member for the Prahran Council for 28 years. For 15 years he was a Com- missioner of the Melbourne Metropolitan Board of Works, and was president of the South Yarra branch of the National Federation, a member of the advisory   boards of the Prahran Technical School, and the Melbourne High School, and a member of the St. Kilda Cemetery Trust. He was one of the founders of the Vic- torian Authorized News Agents' Asso- ciation, and the first president. Cr. Flintoft was a native of Collingwood, and was in business in Toorak road for about 40 years. He has left a widow and two sons—Messrs. J. and W. Flintoft, the latter a Melbourne cricketer and former Melbourne footballer. The widow was   formerly Miss Fanny Michell, of North Adalaide, a sister of Mr. G. F. Michell, a well-known Adelaide solicitor. Mr. John William Baddams, who. died at Croydon on Tuesday at the age of 80 years, was a well-known police constable who retired in 1917, having reached the age limit. He performed good service in Port Adelaide on water police duty. He was born in London in 1847, and educated at the Commercial Travellers' School, near Harrow. At 14 years of age he entered a sailing ship as an apprentice, and     worked his way up the seafaring ladder until he obtained his master's certificate. In 1882, when he first made arrangements to enter the police force, he was mate of the Adelaide Steamship Company's vessel Franklin. Two years later he resigned from the police force and entered the Governor Musgrave as mate. In 1886, when the little steamer's permanent crew were paid off, he rejoined the police force. Constable Baddams was brought pro- minently into public notice in 1910 on account of the valour he displayed in con- nection with the fire on the steamer South African, for which he was awarded the King's Medal. He has left a widow.
