DEATH OF MR. H. L. SHARPE.
Many of our readers will remember Mr. H. L.
Sharpe who, some years since, was engaged in the
flour and grain trade, and whose transactions
with Adelaide were at one time very considerable.
His friends will regret to learn that he was found
dead in his bedroom at the Post-office Club hotel,
corner of Elizabeth street and Post-office place,
on Monday morning. It will be recollected that
stairs at the Union Club hotel, in Collins street,
living at the residence of Mr. Fleetwood, the
solicitor, at Kew. Previous to the accident he
was a hale hearty man, but he never recovered
he had no less than twenty-seven fits. About a
week ago he went to stay at the Post-office Club
be better than usual, being more than ordinarily
lively in his conversation, but yesterday morning
he was discovered dead under the following cir-
cumstances :—Shortly after 11 o'clock the house-
maid on going to clean the room occupied by Mr.
Sharpe found the door closed, and as it was later
than usual for him to be in bed, she mentioned
the fact to Mr. Pear, the landlord. A suspicion
crossed Mr. Pear's mind that his lodger might
have committed suicide, and he at once
sent for Dr. Moloney and for a constable.
On their arrival a ladder was procured,
and an entrance was effected into the
room occupied by Mr. Sharpe on the upper
was found lying dead with his head against the
dooor. On a table beside the bed was a tumbler
in an inverted position, and on the floor were a
book, and a candle and candlestick, and it is sup-
posed that the deceased must have been reading,
bed and rushed to the door to give the alarm,
but fell dead just as he reached the door.
The city coroner, Dr. Youl, held an inquest
on Tuesday morning, at the Melbourne Hospital,
the deceased was about forty-one years of age, a
single man, and much addicted to drinking. He
was acquainted with the deceased for about fifteen
years, during which time he was a corn and flour
merchant. About four years ago he fell down stairs
at the Union hotel, but although he recovered,
he was never the same man again, and was much
subject to epileptic fits, he having known him to
have no less than twenty-seven in succession.
Mr. Pear, of the Post-office Club hotel, said that
the deceased had been lodging with him since
Sunday night week. He had been very temperate,
drinking nothing else but tonic ; but as his room
was found to be locked about 11 o'clock on
Monday morning, admission was obtained to it
through the window. The deceased was found
dead on the floor by his bedside, and was re-
moved to the Melbourne Hospital. Dr. Annand
made a post-mortem examination of the body,
and said that the cause of death was sanguineous
apoplexy. The jury returned, a verdict in ac-
cordance with the medical testimony.

MR. SHARPE AT BENALLA.
[BY ELECTRIC TELEGRAPH.]
[FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.]
BENALLA, 15th JULY.
Mr. George Sharpe, who is opposing the Post-
master-General, Mr. H. Bolton, addressed the
electors in the Rechabite Hall to-night. The
hall was crowded to excess, there being about
400 electors present. Mr. Sharpe obtained a very
good hearing. Mr. R. Roe, the president of the
Mr. Sharpe said he would not have stood
at the present juncture only that there was no
other Liberal candidate in the field. He desired
to show the detestation he felt for the manner in
which the present Ministry had jumped the Tea-
Mr. Murray Smith, Mr. Ramsay and other
to give them any assistance. He was
of opinion that the best way to put
a stop to place jumping, such as shown by Sit
Ministers' salaries considerably. As soon as
a Ministry was formed and went into power
it took them all their time to keep
there, and they were not allowed to
do any practical legislation. The Victorian
Parliament ought to take a pattern by Disraeli
and Gladstone. He was in favor of putting £1
per head on all stock crossing the Murray, and
thought that a commission ought to be appointed
to properly deal with the tariff. Some articles
ought to be admitted free, and others
taxed. He was in favor of the sub-
sidy being continued to shire and borough
councils. Seeing that nearly £1,000,000
per annum was sent from the country districts
from the land, there ought to be some return
for that. He would support a royal commission
on the Education Act, if for the purpose of re-
ducing the large cost, and for giving higher
schools to the up-country centres, but any
approach to denominationalism he would oppose
strongly. (Loud applause.) He would not criti-
cise the Ministerial policy, as he did not think
they would ever have a chance of carrying it out.
He was in favor of water supply for country dis-
tricts. He had been the means of having the
Broken Creek Diversion scheme carried out. He
for carriage on the railways.
In answer to questions, the candidate said he
was not in favor of taking the tax off beer
and tobacco, but he was in favor of
taking it off tea and sugar. He objected to
the civil service dismissals, but thought there
should be no new appointments. He was in
favor of admitting freezing appliances free. He
