St. Catharines lost a valued servant and a loyal citizen in the sudden death on Friday morning of Assessment Commissioner James W. Young. A citizen of the city for the past 30 years and an employee of the city for 20 years, the sudden passing of Mr. Young came as a severe shock to his wide circle of friends and acquaintances and to his fellow employees at the city hall. A sufferer from heart disease for years, Mr. Young had, however, been in fairly good health of late and had been at his desk daily. His final act at the city hall was in reading a presentation address Friday afternoon to deputy clerk Max Peart, who left the employ of the city to become the clerk and treasurer of Port Colborne.

Mr. Young, accompanied by his granddaughter, Betty Wills, left his home for an Easter trip to Brantford. The two had walked to the Union Bus terminal on St. Paul street and Mr. Young has asked for tickets when he suddenly crumpled to the floor. Medical aid was immediately called but life was extinct.

His only daughter, Mrs. Clara V. Wills, predeceased him in 1928, leaving to survive his wife and granddaughter.

The funeral service was held Monday afternoon from his late home, 23 Gerrard Street, to Queen St. Baptist Church, and thence to Victoria Lawn Cemetery.
