A tragic accident took place at the plant of the Eastern Car Works which brought death to

William Murray, a foreman and a well known and liked resident of the steel town. It was quite an

extraordinary accident. The previous Saturday evening a gondola car had been partly loaded with

large sheets of steel plate intended for shipment. The plates were loaded on the one side of the

car. His weight destroyed the balance of the car and it toppled over and caught him. He was

removed as rapidly as possible but died at the first aid station. He resided on Rose Ave., Trenton,

and leaves a wife and five small children to mourn the loss of a loving husband and father. Later

yesterday, Coroner Dr. Robbins summoned a jury and evidence regarding the accident was taken.

A verdict of accidental death was rendered. It was established that the twelve plates had been

loaded on Saturday and all being on the one side unbalanced the car so that the mere addition of

Mr. Murray's weight upset the large railway car. Mr. Murray attempted to mount the car to load

still furthur plates. Grief over the death of their fellow workman and the unusual nature of the

affair stunned the many workers at the plant and their full sympathywent to the bereaved

members of the family so suddenly bereft of the head of their home.

Robert Jannex, 36 year old employee of the Pictou County Power Board, was killed yesterday

when he came in contact with a high tension wire on the New Glasgow side of the railroad

bridge. Mr. Jannex was up a pole in the town dump area examining the wires preparatory to

moving them and making ready for a new pole. The old pole he was up had been on fire, catching

from a fire burning the side of the dump. The Board had figured the base of the pole had been

burned and that a new pole would be desirale. Mr. Jannex was investigating. Just what happened

while up the pole is not clear. It is believed that his spur slipped, bringing him against a wire

carrying 2200 volts of electricity. In any case death was instantaneous and he was beyond

medical aid when a doctor got there. No inquest was called since the verdict was "purely

accidental". It happened about 4 in the afternoon. Mr. Jannex is survived by his wife and a

daughter, as well as by his parents and brothers and sisters in Jeddore, Halifax county, where he

formerly lived before coming here. The tragedy is particularly shocking to his wife, a sister of the

late Parker Gratto who was killed in much the same way about three years ago. Another brother,

Homer, is also with the Power Board staff. Mr. Jannex was a highly valued member of the staff

and his death is deeply regretted by that organization. A member of the Orange Lodge, Mr.

the community and a particularly active part in the life of both the Masonic and Oddfellow

Lodges. He was one of the oldest members and Past Masters of Queen Lodge and his active

participation in its affairs dates back for over half a century. Two weeks ago he was a visitor to

Masonic Lodges in New Glasgow. Now, he is numbered among those who have gone before. His

fellow members of Queen's Lodge and every resident of the beautiful St. Mary's will mourn the

passing of this respected citizen. To the bereaved members of his family, to the immediate

friends in Sherbrooke, we of this old paper who had known him from early life extend to them

medical practitioners and oldest graduate of the Dalhousie Medical School, is dead. In his 90th

year, Dr. MacMillan passed away at his home in Sheet Harbour on Monday morning after a

gradual failing in health, due to his advanced years. Born of Pictou county parentage on

December 24, 1842, Finlay MacMillan enrolled in the first class to graduate from the medical

school at Halifax and soon after receiving his degree came to this district, where he spent all his

years since his graduation, building up a reputation that installed him in high standing among the

fellow practitioners and residents of the community. About 10 years ago, Dr. MacMillan ceased

active practice and since then had resided here with his wife and a son, Earl. On many occasions

he was the subject of tribute paid him by members of the profession, perhaps the greatest to him,

being on the occasion of the golden jubilee of the Dalhousie Medical School a few years ago

when he received the honorary degree of Doctor of Medicine from his alma mater. During the

absence from the village, of the community doctor, Dr. MacMillan emerged from retirement on

one occasion nine years ago to usher twins into the world. On his 80th birthday the physician

responded to this call, and since that time he had taken considerable interest in the lives of the

pair. Last week one of the twins passed away. Besides his widow, who was Amelia Hall, daughter

of the late William and Sarah Hall, and sister of Capt. Neil Hall, and former Sheriff Hall of

Toronto-(CP)- John Keiller MacKAY, former lieutenant- governor of Ontario, died Friday at his

home. He was 81. Mr. MacKay had suffered a heart attack May 16. To some Canadians he was

known for his distinguished military record, to others as an Ontario Supreme Court justice and to

many a defender of the rights of the individual in society. "The state is made for the individual,

not the individual for the state", he once said. "All the powers of government are founded solely

upon the premise that the people are supreme", he told a grand jury. He had been president of the


Canadian Civil Liberties Association. Although a fifth-generation Canadian, he was proud of his

Scottish heritage and as chieftain of the Clan MacKay in Canada often wore the kilt to formal

functions. Born in Plainfield in Pictou County, N.S., he graduated from St.Francis Xavier College

in Antigonish and enlisted in the Canadian Artillery in the militia at Pictou. He went overseas

with the 6th Brigade in the First World War and, as major at 26, commanded the Brigade's second

battery. He was wounded in France in 1916, but returned to the front as Lt. Col. MacKay,

attached to the 7th Brigade. He was awarded the Distinguished service Order in 1916. After the

war, he graduated in law from Dalhousie University in Halifax in 1922 and the next year moved

to Ontario. Mr. MacKay was appointed a justice of the Ontario Supreme Court in 1935 and to the

Ontario Court of Appeal in 1950. He remained a bachelor until 1943 when he married Katherine

J. MacLeod, a

clergyman's daughter, at Kentville, N.S.. She survives with three sons: Ian Reay, Donald Alastair

and James Keiller. When J. Keiller MacKay was appointed lieutenant- governor in 1957, 1,500

persons turned up for the traditional New Year's Day levee- a crowd believed to be a 30-year

record. After his retirement, he served as chairman of the committee on teaching religion in

public schools in Ontario. The committee reported to the legislature in 1969, recommending that

religious instruction as it is now taught in schools be replaced with building character and moral

values through incidental teaching and study.

in her home when I was a young lad. It was my privilege two years ago to visit her at the home

of her daughter, Mrs. Cameron, Stellarton, our first meeting in more than half a century, and it

was some minutes before she could recognize her visitor, and what a reception I received from

her when she identified her caller. I had to make a promise of a return visit, which I fully intended

to do but unfortunatley I kept putting it off until it was too late. Now the dear old lady has passed

away beyond the vail of tears where there is no more sorrow or sighing. Her memory will be

cherished by all who had the pleasure of her acquaintance. To the members of the family in the

homeland and those in strange lands and distant states, I extend the deepest sympathy in the death

of their devoted mother.

Sorrow at parting with a friend so interesting and loyal, and sympathy for those in the home-

whose sorrow and loss are greatest spread throughout New Glasgow as it was learned that Miss

Nan MARSHALL, of Maple Ave., after a very brief illness, was taken out of the sphere where a

large section of her life's ministry was so unselfishly given- to her rest, in large measure because

of her capacity- was the labor of love in caring for her mother, Mrs. William Marshall, during her

illness of the past 18 years- when suddenly, and without long notice- she was relived of the

responsibility and to other hands there was committed the trust she so faithfully and persistently

carried In earlier life she devoted herself to buisness, and as a bookeeper and executive of

buisness houses in New Glasgow, she gave leadership; but had eventually to choose between

buisness and the home, and the home won her support and supervision, and with uncommon

fidelity she carried on through the years. It is such lives that lift life for us all out of its

narrowness and selfishness, and puts the hall mark of superior dignity on the common round of

human life. She was a great friend, a great sister and a great daughter. The funeral service was

held Saturday afternoon, July 4, at 2:30 o;clock from the family residence. Maple Ave, and here

again earnest and sympathetic throngs assembled to show concern. Rev. C. R. F. MacLennan,

minister of Trinity Church conducted the service and gave the address. The committal service at

Riverside cemetery was conducted by Rev.C.R.F. MacLennan, her pastor. While the casket was

being gently lowered into its resting place an aeroplane moved across the cemetery, close to


where the group were standing, and on its onward and upward flight suggested the future

immortality of the brave spirit of the one being silently laid to rest. She leaves to cherish her life

and mourn her passing, a brother, Keith Marshall, now of 721 Adams St., Gary, Indiana, two

sisters, Isabel, nurse in brooklyn, N.Y., and Ena connected with the buisness office of the Halifax

Herald, and her mother. Mr. William Marshall, the father, predeceased her quite a number of

OBIT # 6369 – EASTERN CHRONICLE – 13 JAN 1920

All that was mortal of the late Prof. Eben MacKay, of Dalhousie University, whose death has

caused general lamentation was Friday reverently laid to rest in Brookside Cemetery, New

Glasgow. The remains were brought here from Halifax yesterday and taken to the residence of his

brother, Charles MacKay, East River Road. There a private service was held in the morning at

which Rev. George Farquhar, pastor of St. Andrew's Church, officiated. Shortly before one

o'clock the body was conveyed to St. Andrew's Church where a public service was held. The

church was well filled and it was noticeable that the audience was largely composed of those who

knew and loved Eben MacKay when he was principal of the New Glasgow High School. Their

memories went back twenty-eight years ago, when the scholar and gentleman now dead before

them was a part of the official life of New Glasgow and commanded, by his dignity, his honesty

of purpose, and his faithful performance of duties, the love and respect of the townspeople.

Through the many years since the affection has continued and strengthened , and today strong

men were not ashamed to shed a tear at the bier of their friend. The service was conducted by

Rev. George Farquhar, assisted by Rev. E.H. Ramsay, who read the scripture lesson, Rev. C.C.

McIntosh, who led in prayer and Rev. Robert Johnson ,M.A., who delivered the address. The

tribute Mr. Johnson paid to the deceased was couched in simple language, but carried with it a

tenderness of expression that reached deep into the hearts of his hearers.The speaker told that

when he reached Halifax from the Old Country, sixteen years ago, the first friendship he formed

was with Prof. Eben MacKay. It was a friendship that ripened thriugh the intervening years, and

what the Professor had been to him , he had been to many other strangers who had gone to

Halifax to him. He particularly dwelt upon the sincerity which was so prominent in the character

of Prof. MacKay. There was no sham or humbug about him, nor could he abide it in anyone else.

His determination and willingness to help and to be of service to others was only second to his

sincerity. The eulogy of his friend by reverend gentleman befitted not only the time and place, but

was remarkable for its exacititude and completeness of the outstanding features of the walk and

life of Eben MacKay. The cortege from the church to the graveyard was a large one, and

representative was the delegation from Dalhousie University, his late scene of labor. Representing

the Governors were Dr. A.H. MacKay and Mr. G. Fred Pearson; the Senate, Dr. Howard Murray,

Mr. Justice Russell, Dr. Archibald MacMechan, Dr. Howard Bronson, and Dr. Murdock

Chisholm; the Alumni Association, Mr. H.E. Mahon, the President and Mr. Theodore Ross; the

student body, D.W. Hoare and A.D. Ross, from Executive of Student's Council,; A.R. Reid,

President Student's Medical Society; George H. McLeave, President Students' Art and Science

Societies; and W.R. McLelland, President Students' Engineering Society. The pallbearers were

Judge George Patterson, who was succeeded as principal of New Glasgow High School by Dr.

MacKay in

1886; Mr. H.K. Fitzpatrick, K.C., Dr. MacKay's oldest friend; Hon. R.M. Macgregor, who

entered the High School as pupil when Dr. MacKay became Principal and left when the latter

resigned to pursue his studies at college; Mr. J.T. MacLeod, Principal of Schools; Mr. H.T.

Sutherland, who was School Commissioner during the years the deceased was principal of the

New Glasgow Schools; and Mr. Don F. Fraser, the present chairman of the Commissioners of

Schools. There was a touch of fitness in the final scene. From Pictou County Eben MacKay went

away with the high promise of youth to fit himself for his life's work. Friday of last week his

body was returned to its native soil, his spirit having departed bearing an honorable record of

faithful and useful service to the people of the province, there to rest in its last long sleep.

MacINNIS, Elizabeth Clare - 47, Harbourside Lodge, Yarmouth, formerly of 322 Shelburne St.,

surrounded by family members. Born in New Glasgow, June 16, 1957, she was the youngest

child of the late Alexander (1989) and Mary Gladys (Mullins) (2004) MacInnis. With her birth,

God placed an angel in waiting into our family. In the early 60's, Elizabeth's parents were part of

a committee who formed the first special education class in Pictou County. This class, with

Elizabeth as one of its first students, opened in the Carmichael Building, George Street, New

Glasgow. She remained in the special education system until the age of twenty one. She then

entered the adult educational workshop programs, which has evolved into what is known today as

Summer Street Industries. She left Summer Street Industries in June, 2002, due to ill health. At

this time, she became a resident of Harbourside Adult Residential Living in Yarmouth. This is a

home where special needs adults receive professional care. Her family appreciates the caring,

love and professional service given to their angel in her final years with us. Elizabeth loved life

and partaking in family and community functions. She was a member of St. John the Baptist

Church, New Glasgow. With her zest for life and sociable personality, she will be remembered by

many as the young girl arriving at sport pickup games with her baseball glove or hockey stick in

hand, always accepted and allowed to participate by all youth of all ages in our community. This

acceptance helped her grow into the happy, well adjusted lady we all loved. She loved to travel

and crossed the country of Canada more than once to visit with her brothers and sisters. Summer


Street Industries gave her the opportunity to fill each day with positive life experiences. She loved

to participate in the many events of the Special Olympics, bringing home many gold, silver and

bronze medals over the years. Swimming was her main sport, and she felt honoured to be the

swimming poster person on the Special Olympic Michelin poster ad. She attended many summer

camps for special needs, making many friends. Weekly bowling was a must in her life, and she

achieved several awards for her bowling skills. When phase two of the Summer Street Industries

was open, Elizabeth proudly represented the work shop clients as she cut the ribbon at the official

opening. These events and many others were made possible by the staff and volunteers who so

willingly gave of their time and talents to improve the quality of life for special needs children

and adults, and we thank you. She is survived by sisters, Mary Isabel (Adrian) Armsworthy,

his boyhood and received his education in Scotland. He was one of the early pioneers in Nova

Scotia, and came out to Canada on the old side-wheeler "Asia" in the year 1863.In Pictou, along

and J. Yorston operated the marine slip. In 1890 and 91 he was Liberal candidate in the provincial

OBIT # 6395 – EASTERN CHRONICLE – 10 JUL 1917

North Western Saskatchewan lost one of its foremost citizens on the evening of June 10th in the

sudden death of Judge James F. McLEAN, of Battleford in his fifty-sixth year. For many years he

had suffered greatly from asthma and some three years ago complications set in from which he

never fully recovered. At length the strain on the heart proved too great and he peacefully passed

to his rest. The deceased was a son of the manse, his father, Rev. A. MacLean,D.D., of Hopewell,

N.S., one of the honored veterans of our church having predeceased him by less than a year. On

the completion of his course in Dalhousie he began the practise of law in New Glasgow, N.S. In

1898 he came west and practiced his profession successively at Prince Albert, Whitewood and

Yorkton. In the latter town he had a very large clientele and was appointed Crown Prosecutor and

public guardian and administrator. In 1909 he was elevated to the bench being made Judge of the

District Court of Battleford, which position he occupied with distinction until his death. He

cherished with a deep love the church of his fathers, being a faithful member and a constant


attendant at its services as long as he was able. He had a splendid grasp of Bible truth holding

firmly to those fundamental verities on which his own faith rested and deploring any tendency in

the teaching of the church to minimize the signizcance of the life and death of Christ. Trained in

the sifting of evidence , he was always prepared to show the reasonableness of his own

interpretation of Scripture. He was a fluent speaker and his voice was often heard on the public

platform, supporting what he believed to be in the interests of the people of the province. He was

twice married, his first wife being Miss Kate Hyndman, whose mother and brother now reside in

Edmonton; and his second wife who survives him being Miss Grace Fowler, daughter of Rev.

Joseph Fowler, of Chelmsford, Eng. The only daughter Miss Edith is a member of the Saskatoon

teaching staff, while two sons, Lieut. Allister MacLean of the 196th Battalion, and Pte. Frederick

J. MacLean, of the Princess Pats, are on active service. The youngest, Master Courtney is at

home. Mrs. C.S. Lord, Fenelon Falls, Ont., is the only sister. The sympathy of their many friends

East and West will go out to the sorrowing relatives. The above is from the Presbyterian Witness

and will be read with interest by Pictou County people. In the West Judge McLean made a

splendid name for himself.and stood high in the esteem of all who came to know him.

the then distinguished Pictou Academy. Mrs. Moore was also a teacher and educationalist - and

the first bicycle-riding, bloomers-wearing feminist in town. After her marriage to Ervin Murray

and the births of their three children (David, Greg and Janet), Kay Murray became an active

artistic ambitions among her offspring with enthusiasm. She took delight in teaching the names of

Nova Scotian wildflowers to her granddaughters; she loved the vivid colours of nature. As her

family and many friends can attest, Kay was a model of kindness, shy grace and tact: always

loving and much loved. Long after the death of her husband, Ervin, 34 years ago, in recent years

Kay resided in Victoria Hall, Halifax, until she moved to The Glades Nursing Home. She died on
