      One of the most highly esteemed and popu-
      lar residents of North Richmond, Henry Ste-;
      venson, passed away on Saturday night, at
      the age of 68 years, after some ten years'
      of suffering from rheumatism, during the
      greater portion of which time he was unable
      to move from his bed. The late Henry Ste-
      venson took a keen interest in matters for
      the welfare of the district. He was for many
      years an active worker on the Council of the
      H.D.A. Association, and his advice in matters
      pertaining to the fruit sections at the Show
      was often sought and invariably adopted.
      In politics he was most enthusiastic in the
      bitter struggles of days gone by. He was a
      staunch supporter of the Bowman party, and'
      carried a great deal of weight and influence.
      When the Liberal Party formed he was one of
      its most energetic supporters, and took a
      keen interest in political matters generally.
      For a number of years the late Henry Stev-
      enson was the licensee of the Travellers'
      Rest (now the Riverview) Hotel at North
      Richmond. He was a model publican and
      a genial host. He leaves a widow, who is
      a daughter of the late William Penton, one
      son and one daughter. His son, William,
      who is a prosperous agent in the Sydney
      Fruit Markets, is widely known and highly
      respected throughout this district. He was
      formerly a keen cricketer, and, like his father,
      a thorough gentleman. The daughter, Miss
      Bessie Stevenson, lives at home. Mr. Ed-
      ward Stevenson and Mrs. William Biddle
      of Richmond, are brother and sister of de-
      ceased. The funeral took place on Monday,
      and was one of the largest seen in Kurra-
      jong, which bore eloquent testimony to the
      great respect in which the late Mr. Steven-
      son was held, and of the sympathy the peo- ,
      ple of the district had for the bereaved
      wife and family. The remains were buried
      in the Church of England cemetery at Rich-
      mond. Rev. Stanley Best (Rector) assist-
      ed by Rev. H. Tate, of Kurrajong, conducted
      the last sad rites at the grave. Mr. Tate
      paid an eloquent tribute to the life of the
      deceased, whom he had known for many
      years, and expressed his sincere sympathy
      with the bereaved family. The members of
      the M.U. Order of Oddfellows, Richmond, of
      which lodge deceased was a member, march-
      ed in the procession. The funeral was con-
      ducted by Mr. A. Price.
