      DEATH OF MR. C. P. MARTYR.
      The intelligence of the death of Mr. C. P. Martyr, manager of Kilcummin Station, in the Peak Downs district, which occurred on Sunday afternoon, will be received with widespread regret in this division. To Mr. Martyr's many friends the news will not be unexpected; for he has been ill for some months past, and it was almost as a last hope that he was brought down to town two weeks ago. Two or three days ago all hope may be said to have fled, and be passed away quietly on Sunday afternoon about half past four o'clock. Mr Martyr was a son of the late Mr. J. J. Martyr, surveyor and architect, Goulburn, New South Wales, and was born there in 1845. He was thus forty-eight years of age. He was educated at Goulburn, and on leaving school in 1860, he went to Bland Station in the Young district, then the property of Messrs. Gibson Brothers, of Tirranna Station. He remained there for sixteen or eighteen years, acquiring a thorough knowledge of the pastoral business. Abont 1878 he came to Waroo Station in the Warwick district of this colony, where he remained a year two, and where he found his wife. Miss Bracker, of Waroo Station. Some where about 1880 he came up to the Peak Downs district as manager of Craven Station, and in that district he ever after remained. Mr. Martyr was not long at Craven, leaving it about twelve years ago to take up the managership of the extensive property known as Kilcummin. At that time the property was of much smaller area than it is now, when it includes not only Kilcummin proper, but also Avon Downs, Diamond Plains, and Diamond Downs. All that great area of country, which now carries about a quarter of a million of sheep, and 4000 or 5000 cattle, besides a fine stud of horses, was under his personal management. Under his direction costly improvements were carried out ; country which formerly carried cattle was placed under sheep, and the carrying capacity of the whole property greatly increased. Mr. Martyr was one of the most prominent and also one of the most popular men in the Peak Downs district. He was known from one end to the other of all that wide territory, and everywhere within it he was held in the highest esteem. Compelled by his position, no less than by his force of character, to take a leading part in the shearing strike, be yet even in that embittered time never lost the respect of those who were opposed to him. He was for many years a member of the Belyando Divisional Board, and several times was elected chairman. He was also a mem- ber and chairman of the Marsupial Board, a prominent man on the Hospital Committee, and a leading member of the pastoral andFix this text racing clubs. In a word Mr. Martyr was long and intimately, and honourably con- nected with the public life of the Peak Downs. He had been a widower for the last six years, and be leaves a family of three sons, all of whom are at school in Clermont. The funeral took place on Monday afternoon, burial being made in the Rockhampton Cemetery.
