Edmund Davis, he had become a Jungle mag-
nate, with large and widely ramifying interests.
Professionally, the late Mr. Tarbutt was most
intimately associated with Mr. Edward Janson,
his partner in the firm of Tarbutt, Son &
Janson, civil engineers.

THOMPSON, W. J., J.P., late of Kippington
Green, Sevenoaks, Kent, founder of the firm
of William James & Henry Thompson, Colonial

Marine Insurance Co. He built the church at
Kippington, of which his son, the Rev. H.
Percy Thompson, is vicar.

TUDHOPE, HON. JOHN, late of Dulwich
Wood Park, Upper Norwood, was of Scottish
birth and parentage, and went to S.A. with his
father and family in 1840. Mr. F. Tudhope
was one of a band of teachers selected from the
Scottish Universities to introduce the Herschell
system of higher education, and was for twenty-
five years the principal of the Public Sch. at
Grahamstown, where his son was educated.
Mr. John Tudhope began his business career
in King Williamstown, then the capital of the
Crown Colony of British Kaffraria, and took
an active part with Col. Schermbrucker, Mr.
Joseph Walker and others in its public affairs.
He was one of the founders of the British
Kaffrarian Bank, the Public Library, and other
local institutions. He afterwards resided in
Port Elizabeth, Aliwal North and Uitenhage,
representing the latter division in the Cape
Parliament for six years, and becoming a mem-
ber of Sir Thomas Uppington's Ministry as
Colonial Secy, in 1885. This post he occupied
for four and a-half years, and during that time
identified himself with educational and agricul-
tural measures of great benefit to the country.
Amongst other things, he introduced, not with-
out considerable opposition, the first Scab Act ;
the Agricultural Coll. at Groot Constantia was
begun under his Ministerial control ; and he was
instrumental in introducing farm schools and
other useful and progressive measures in the
Education Dept. over which he presided.

In 1889 he resigned his position to take up
the important post of General Manager of the
newly formed Johannesburg Consolidated In-



vestment Co., a concern which has grown from
modest beginnings to a financial institution of
the first importance during Mr. Tudhope' s con-
nexion with it. During his residence in Johan-
nesburg he soon became identified with the
political movements then beginning to agitate
the Transvaal xmder the old regime. He was
the first Pres. of the now celebrated Transvaal
National Union, and occupied that position
during two and a-half exciting years, when he
retired in favour of Charles Leonard. He
thoroughly identified himself with the public
life of Johannesburg, taking part in many useful
movements. He was Chairman of the Public
Library for'' four years; on the Managing Com-
mittee of the fine Hospital for a similar period ;
chief of the Caledonian Society for several years,
and belonged to many other bodies of a useful
and philanthropic character. He subsequently
returned to England to take up the manage-
ment of the Johannesburg Consolidated Invest-
ment Co. He contributed articles to the Press,
was a Member of the Council of the Royal
Colonial Institute, and frequently figured on
its platform as a speaker on S.A. subjects. He
died at his residence on Dec. 22, 1903.

UNSWORTH, DR. NOEL, late of the Egyptian
Medical Service, was an English doctor who was
formerly a medical officer in the diseases of the
skin department of St. Thomas' Hospital, and
was also Asst. Medical Officer at Paddington
Infirmary. He received his recent appoint-
ment as Resident Asst. Surgeon at the Kasr-el-
Aini Hospital at Cairo in 1902, and died of
plague at Zagazig July 10, 1904.

VERNON, BREVET MAJOR HUBERT, D.S.O.,
was born in 1867, and was second son of Sir
Harry Foley Vernon, Bart., and Lady Georgina
Vernon, of Hanbury Hall, near Droitwich.
He joined the Rifle Brigade as Second Lieut.
in 1888, and was promoted Lieut, in 1891,
obtaining his company in 1896, and his brevet
majority in 1900. He served with Sir Frederick
Carrington's force in S.A. in 1896, and re-
ceived the D.S.O. During the late Boer War
he was Aide-de-Camp to Major-Gen. F. Howard,
and Deputy Asst. Adjutant -Gen. He met his
death as the result of a polo accident at Pre-
toria in 1902.

co. Kildare, Ireland, and was formerly attached
to the Portsmouth Division of the Submarine
Miners. During the Greco-Turkish War of
1897 and the Sudan campaign, Capt. Weldon
represented the "Morning Post" as one of
their Special Correspondents, contributing a
series of graphic accounts of the scenes of which
he had been a witness. He took part in
the S.A. War, afterwards settling in Pretoria,
where he died.

WARD, CAPT. HON. REGINALD, D.S.O., was
a brother of Earl Dudley, Lord-Lieutenant of
Ireland ; joined the Royal Horse Guards, and
saw service in the S.A. War, being twice men-
tioned in despatches and receiving the D.S.O.
He was an enthusiastic amateur rider, and on
one occasion in 1898 at the Grand Military
Meeting at Sandown Park he steered six horses
to victory out of nine mounts. In the same
year he came in second on his own horse,
Cathal, in the Grand National at Aintree.



WEBLEY, THOMAS W., late of Birmingham,
was senior partner in the firm of the Webley
& Scott Revolver and Arms Co., Ltd., of that
town. He was the son of Philip Webley, by
whom he was thoroughly grounded in the
technical knowledge required in his business.
He visited S.A. on two or three occasions, and
was especially well known in Pretoria, where
he encouraged revolver practice, and founded,
or helped to found, a ladies' shooting club. In
Natal also Mr. Webley was well known. In his
later years he devoted considerable attention
to gardening, and it was one of his greatest
delights to show to what perfection floriculture
could be brought even in Birmingham. He
died on Feb. 13, 1904.

WELL AND, LIEUT. JOSEPH RABOTEATT,
R.A.M.C.,M.B., entered the Army Medical Ser-
vice June 29, 1901, and was killed in action
while serving with the Somaliland Field Force
against the dervishes in Jan., 1904.
