195. Michael P Chalker

MR. MICHAEL CHALKER Mr. Michael Chalker, of Bolong Station, in the Taralga district, died at Crookwell District Hospital last night after a lengthy illness. He was 63 years of age. A son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Chalker, of Taralga, and a grandson of the late, John Chalker, who was the first settler in the Wom- beyan Caves district, Mr. Michael Chalker succeeded, the late Thomas Fitzgibbon as overseer of Bolong station. He was a fine stockman and a keen judge of Durham cattle. The wide reputation of the Bolong cattle was ably carried on by Mr. Chalker, who gave his entire attention and services to the management of the estate. At Taralga and all district shows the cattle exhibited from Bolong always attracted admiration be cause of their exceptional breeding and quality, whilst bullocks sent to Homebush were invariably among the top lines. The late Mr. Chalker is survived by a widow, who is a daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. T. Fitzgibbon, of Bolong. He also leaves two brothers, Joseph and John (Condobolin), and five sisters, among whom are Mrs. Lenane (Goulburn), Mrs. W. James (Goulburn), Mrs. Phil Charles (Tar- alga) and Miss Eva Chalker (Tar- alga). The interment will be at Stone- quarry. The remains will be taken to-day from Crookwell to the Roman Catholic Church at Taralga. Rev. Fr. O'Sullivan, who attended Mr. Chalker during his illness, will con duct the services at the church and cemetery.

209. William Ernest Chalker

TARALGA. (From Our Correspondent.) THE RECENT SAD FATALITY. The Coroner (Mr. C. Ross, T.P.) held an inquiry at Byrne's Hotel on Thursday after- noon into the circumstances surrounding the death of Mr. William Chalker, junior, who was killed the previous night by a fall from his vehicle on the Goulburn Road. From the evi- dence it appears that the deceased, accompanied by his brother Leonard and James Keough, a neighbour, left Taralga between 6 and 7 o'clock to go to Myrtleville. They were driving a waggonette drawn by a pair of horses, and Wil liam Chalker and James Keough sat on the front seat, and Leonard in the body of the vehicle. When passing the showground at a trotting pace the pole suddenly pulled out, and, William Chalker and Keough were thrown violently to the ground, Leonard remaining in the vehicle unhurt. Jumping out, he found Mr. Keough partly stunned and his brother apparently dead. Luckily, Mr. Keough came round quickly, and Leonard, after placing his brother in Keough's arms, ran for medical assistance and help to Taralga, the nearest place. The deceased, however, showed no signs of life, and there is no doubt he was killed instantane ously, either from dislocation of the neck or rupture of the heart, as there were no marks of violence visible on his body. The only medical evidence available was that of Mr. Clifton, chemist, who saw the deceased. The Coroner recorded a finding that the deceased was acci dentally killed by a fall from a vehicle driven by himself. The sad accident has cast a gloom over the district, and the deepest sympathy is felt on  all hands for the family and friends in their sad trouble. He was only 25 years of age, and was the second son of Mr. W. Chalker of Myrtleville. He was married, and leaves a widow in a delicate state of health and two young children. His father, who has been laid up in bed for some time, is completely prostrated through the sad occurrence. The deceased was a steady and industrious young fellow, and at the time of the accident was returning from Taralga with his waggonette, his intention being to buy rabbits and convey them to the freezing works. He was unable to have the repairs to the vehicle effected, and had to delay on that account. The funeral took place on Friday afternoon, and was one of the most largely attended I have seen here. The remains were interred in the Church of England cemetery at Stonequarry. The Oddfellows Lodge, which the deceased recently joined, marched in procession in front of the hearse, being marshalled by Bro. Maguire. At the graveside the church burial service was read by the Rev. Mr. Coverdale, and at the conclusion of that Bro. H. J. Dawson read the burial ritual according to the Oddfellows.

Catherine Mary J Muller

MRS. CATHERINE MARY CHALKER.
The death occurred at the Sacred Heart Hospital, Cootamundra, on the 9th inst. of Mrs. Catherine Mary Chalker, aged 72 years. Though the deceased lady had not enjoyed good health for some time, her collapse came unexpectedly. The Rosary was recited at her bedside by members of the family and the Sisters of Mercy. Wearing the emblem of the Sacred Heart, in which sodality she had sought and found spiritual comfort for 63 years, Mrs. Chalker died. Almost 70 years ago, the late Mrs. Chalker, with her parents, settled in the Jindaleo Valley, and since then had resided almost continuously in that district. In those days conditions were much more arduous than they were for settlers of a later date, and as the eldest of a settler's family, deceased passed many a day on horseback, and in the dairy, or later, provisioning an outback selection, taken up by her father, in the Temora district. . Married in 1892 to Mr. A. A. Chalker. who survives her, she moved nearer to Wallendbeen, and there the family of three sons and five daughters, who survive her, were reared. Two daughters, Sister M. Regis and Sister M. Aqjiinas, B.A, Dip.Ed., are members of the Congregation of the Sisters of Mercy, and were present with their mother in her last hours. Rev. Fathers J. J. McKenna, P.P., and P. J. Ooffey attended her regularly during her illness, and the former officiated at the grave side, after a Requiem Mass. Deceased is survived by Mr. A. A. Chalker; five daughters, Mrs. J. Harrold (Cootamundra), Sister M. Regis, Sister M. Aquinas, Mrs. P. Lynch (Wellington), Mrs.. P. E.
