LOCAL OBITUARY NOTICES. EX-COUXCILLOR WHITE, CARDIFF. Regretfully \'e have to announce the death of Mr. Henry White, who for many years was a member of the Cardiff Corporation, and in that capacity did some useful work. Mr. White was born in Cheltenham, and was trained for the law. Some 30 years ago he entered into partnership with Mr. W. H. Cory, and the official name of the firm was Cory and White. Immediately upon his arrival in Cardiff Mr. White identified him- self with the Conservative party. In 1890 he fought Cathayg against Mr. Peter Price and Mr. Alfred Good, and was defeated by the former by 60 votes, Mr. Good being hopelessly left at the bottom of the poll. The following I year Mr. White was returned in the same ward with a majority of 58 over Mr. Merritt, Mr. Good again making a bad third. Three years later Mr. Joseph Henry Jones chal- lenged the scat and, as a previous councillor, his chances were favoured by the Radical party. Some very warm meet- THE LATE MR. HENRY WHITE. I lags were held. The poll was a heavy one, and Mr. White was again triumphantly returned with a majority of 227. In 1897 Mr. White was defeated by Mr. Lloyd Meyrick, aribther solicitor, who, during the time he was a member of the corporation, was one of its most brilliant orators. Mr. White was not discouraged by hie defeat, and last November made a very good fight against Mr. Charles Bird in the Roath Ward. It was shortly after this struggle for political supremacy in a ward which Alderman Rame- dale could only win by three votes that Mr. White was attacked by an insidious disease, similar to that which carried off in the prime of his life Sir Thomas Morel—internal oancer. Dr. Shepherd's well-kno\n medical efficiency oonld not compeite against the disease with success, and Mr. White died on Friday, to the regret of many old and fast friends. He was a trustee of the Young Men's Christian Aesjociation, and held other positions in way that won for him every confidence and respect. For three years he was a member of the school board.
