    The many friends of Mr. A. A. MacDiarmid will be grieved to hear of his death, which took place at his residence, Bothwell, South Coast Junction, shortly before 11 o'clock on Monday morning. Although Mr. MacDiarmid had been in failing health for some months past, it was only lately that he became so ill as to cause anxiety to his friends, or to lead them to suppose that his illness would be soon have a fatal termination. Acting on medical advice, Mr. MaoDiarmid had arranged to take a long holiday, and, with that object in view, he had converted his insurance business into a limited company. While still young he had for many years been a prominent man in business circles, where his strong individuality and sound com- mon sense gained for him high rank amongst those with whom he was brought into contact. In addition to his business as insurance manager, etc, representing as he did those large and influential companies—the Sun, London and Lancashire, Standard of New Zealand, and Queensland Lloyd's, he was also director of the Queenland Mercantile Company, South Brisbane Gas Company, Scottish Queensland Land Mortgage Company, &c, as well as a member of the Marine Board, and to each of these boards he brought the sound discretion and grasp of business principles for which he was so distinguished. The representatives of the insurance companies doing business in the city not long since unitedly expressed their high appreciation of his shrewdness and unwavering integrity in an address and presen- tation of plate. It was, however, in his private life that he endeared himself to his many friends by his broad sympathies and an ever ready willingness to advise and assist them. In his death they have lost a good counsellor and a true friend. Mr. MacDiarmid has passed away at the early age of 38 years, leaving a sorrowing wife and three children to mourn their loss. His only brother is Mr. D. MacDiarmid, general manager of the Bank of North Queensland. The funeral took place on Monday morning, the cortege moving from the deceased gentleman's late residence for the South Brisbane Cemetery, the Rev. Charles Ogg officiating. The following was a large and representative one, the atten- dance showing the esteem in which Mr. MacDiarmid was held both in a public and private capacity. Amongst those present were Mr. E. J. Holmes, the remaining director of the company of A. A. MacDiarmid and Co., Limited, besides all the officials of the businesses conducted by them. The Marine Board was represented by the chairman and secretary, and the insurance profession by almost the whole of the local managers. The Hons. A. J. Thynne and T. J. Byrnes, and Messrs. Mathieson and Johnson, the Railway Commissioners, were also amongst the assemblage. Flags from the Custom-house and from shipping and mercantile firms were flying at half-mast during the day."
