Niagara Falls, Ont., March 7 - Major J.A. Vanderluys, a lifelong resident of Niagara Falls and a man who took a great and active part in civic and military affairs, passed away today at the age of 75 years.

The news of his demise came as a great shock to the citizens, because it was thought that the Major, who had been in the hospital for two weeks less a day, was on the mend. Despite his 75 years he enjoyed excellent health, and took and active and keen interest in affairs.

He was born in the Vanderluys' homestead on River Road, and in the troublous times of the earlier settlers joined the old 19th Battalion at the time of the Fenian Raid. This was later organized as the 44th, and at the time of his death the Major was attached to the corps reserves. His military career was an interesting one and in 1914, when the Great War broke out, he did his bit in home service, and was Paymaster on the Welland Canal Force.

Mr. Vanderluys was a member of the Queen Victoria Park police force, and during the years 1895,1896 and 1898 was a member of the Municipal Council. Besides his wife, he leaves four sons, Jack and Lieut.-Col. Charles of this city, Richard of California, and Roger, of Chippawa; a daughter, Mrs. May Lewis of New York City, and a brother Harmonious, of this city.
