  • 31 May 1886, Death of father: STEWART.—On the 29th inst, on board the s.s. Taiwan, returning from New Guinea, and within a few miles of Melbourne, Charles James Stewart, aged 31, only son of the late hon. James Stewart M.L.C., and brother of Mrs Farquharson, 28 Queen Street.8
  • 5 Jun 1886, Death of father: DEATH OF A NEW GUINEA PIONEER.
    The China steamer Taiwan arrived in the Bay on Saturday afternoon, with her flag at half-mas, in consequence of the death of one of her passengers, Charles James Stewart, who expired at 9 o'clock on Saturday morning from the effects of fever, caught whist in New Guinea. He had come directly from New Guinea to Thursday Island, where he joined the vessel. He was then in very bad health. Whilst on board the Taiwan everything was done on board that could alleviate Mr. Stewart's suffering, and at every port of call a medical man was asked to attend upon him. Sometime ago the deceased man joined an expedition to New Guinea, and whilst there marked a cedar forest with the intention of returning aud obtaining a licence to cut it. Unfortunately on his return there he found that someone had been before him and had taken all the timber. The deceased leaves a wife and family, who reside in Havelock street, St. Kilda to mourn his loss. Mr. Stewart will be remembered as the naturalist of an expedition sent to New Guinea some time since.9
  • 3 Aug 1901, Death of brother: STEWART.—On the 12th July, at South Africa, Trooper Leslie Robert Stewart, Tullibardine's Scottish Horse, beloved second son of Clementina and the late Charles Stewart, aged 19 years. For so He giveth His beloved sleep.10
  • 17 Mar 1902, A ST. KILDA MEMORIAL. SOME QUESTIONS RAISED. Mr Cecil Stewart writes:—
    A little incident occurred a few weeks ago, which demands prompt attention. I refer to the erection of a monumcut to the memory of the late Trooper Edwin Knox prominently placed near the Esplanade, St. Kilda, on what I believe to be public land. There is great disatisfaction amongst St. Kilda residents and ratepayers, inasmuch as no recognition has been made of those who have fallen in the struggle with the Boer, other than the soldier already mentioned. I would like to know whether the monument is the outcome of private or partial public subscription, and if the latter, how it come about that the whole of the inhabitants of this suburb have not been taken into the confidence of the local council and invited to co-operate in what should have been a representative memorial to the several brave who left St. Kilda to fight the cause of the Outlander, and now sleep under the veldt.
    There is one other phase of the matter that calls for discussion, and that is, that current report say that Trooper Knox met with accidental death whilst filling a civil appointment, yet no honor has been tendered to the memory of those who died fighting for the honor of the flag. In conclusion, I hold the opinion that the action of the mayor and councillors is reprehensible for permitting what appears to be a private monument to occupy public property.
    What the Mayor says:
    A representative of "The Herald" saw the Mayor of St. Kilda in reference to the matter.
    "There is a lot of truth in what you say," said Cr O'Donnel, the Mayor, "but what can you say?"
    "Well, you can say whether it is a fair thing to erect a monument on public lands to the memory of a citizen who met his death accidentally while in civil employment."
    "This has nothing to do with the council," said the Mayor. "The monument was bought by private subscriptions. The council was asked for a site facing the Esplanade and the council refused. Then another site was suggested, at the corner of Fitzroy street and the Esplanade. That was a site that would not injure the council and would be convenient to the public, and therefore the council
    agreed. It was a public utility, a fountain in a public place which cost us nothing, and we agreed to it, but it is not a memorial of the men who have fallen in South Africa. I intend to move in that matter and I am going to move that we have a memorial."11
  • 21 Mar 1902, ST. KILDA MEMORIAL. SOME EXPLANATIONS. Mr J. M. A. Spottiswood writes;— Sir,—In the absence of Mr A. Apps, the secretary to the movement, I take the liberty of answering Mr Cecil Stewart's letter. Mr C. Stewart is, I presume, the brother of Mr L. Stewart, who, unfortunately, lost his life in South Africa. When the St. Kilda memorial was started, Trooper Knox was the only St. Kilda man who had died. Almost the whole of the money was subscribed within fourteen days of the news reaching here; subscriptions were invited through the press. There was no suggestion of a general memorial, as there were no others from St. Kilda killed, nor has there been any suggestion until now, when it is too late, besides the money was subscribed for a "particular object," and has been used for the object for which it was collected. But it was thought by the committee that it might be made to serve a useful purpose, in fact, supply a long-felt want of St. Kilda beach. Hence the fountain, instead of a monu ment, and as it was for the public use the St. Kilda Council kindly granted the site, the plans being submitted to them for approval. It has since been handed over to the City Council for the use and benefit of the public. The question of a monument in memory of all the St Kilda lads who have lost their lives being thus left to the powers that be to act on when the war is ended. It is quite open for Mr C. Stewart and his friends to erect a memorial to his brother, and I feel sure that the City Council will be only too happy to assist the movement by granting a suitable site. In answer to the other part of Mr Stewart's letter, Trooper Knox was satisfactorily per-forming civil duties under military control or military government, the same as any officer or private who has civil duties to perform. Colonel Morgan, of the Imperial Army, being his superior officer. He was still a trooper in the Victorian Bushmen's Corps, on active service, and receiving military pay to the date of his death, after which the Imperial authorities sent his rifle and bandolier to his father. All over the land in Australia individual monuments have been erected, and in every instance the local authorities have granted prominent positions for their erection, other wise they would not be object lessons, and if a memorial he contemplated for Mr Stewart's brother on the "same lines" as the one now erected, my mite will be forthcoming when required.12
  • 15 Mar 1905, HONOR TO SOLDIERS THE ST. KILDA MEMORIAL. Messrs Jas. C. Whelan, Cecil Stewart and H. M. Knox write:—
    On behalf of the returned St Kilda boys of the various contingents, as well as the relatives of the fallen, we beg to tender to the public our gratitude for erecting the magnificent memorial unveiled on Sunday last on the Alfred Square, St Kilda Esplanade, by His Excellency Sir Reginald Talbot, K.C.B.
    There are many lonely graves of Australians on the South African veldt, some quiet resting places as for away on the Assegal Valley, near Swaziland, quite out of the reach of loved ones, who are thus denied the melancholy satisfaction of tending the graves of the brave dead. We therefore appreciate all the more the splendid effort so successfully accomplished to keep their memory green by placing on unperishable record the approval of the patriotism which prompted the young Australians to offer their lives in defence of the Empire in her hour of need, and in some small measure discharge the debt owed to those who fought, as well as those who fell, and we are proud to know that the people of St. Kilda have shown their admiration of the efforts of our boys in South Africa by erecting a memorial, a credit alike to our city and those connected with the movement, now so happily brought to such a satisfactory termination.
    Every memorial erected in Australia, and there are a good many, will have the effect of further stimulating the patriotic feeling for the mother country in the men of our day, and generations of Australians yet unborn, and lend to show the nations of the world that Australia is ready at any time to send the flower of the land to do battle for the old flag, no matter from what quarter the danger threatens and her people unite in doing honor afterwards to the brave by erecting memorials in their honor and to their memory, showing their entire sympathy with the spirit which induced them to take up arms in defence of the Empire.
    And should the call to arms be again sounded in our fair land, there will be no need for a "Nelson" to exclaim that England expects Australia to do her duty, for she did it before, and will do it again.
    (Mr Whelan and Mr Stewart are brothers to men who fell in South Africa, and Mr Knox is the father of one who similarly gave his life for the flag.)13

  • 8 Mar 1906, A case of considerable interest to auctioneers and estate agents came before the Supreme Court on Tuesday last, when William Brisbane, of Swanston-street, auctioneer, applied for an injunction against Cecil Stewart and Charles Wood, two former clerks who had been in his employ up to December last, but who had since set up in business on their own account.
    Mr. Bryant (instructed by Messrs. Blake and Riggall), who appeared for plaintiff, applied for an order restraining defendants from improperly soliciting the business of plaintiff's clients, and from making use of certain of his property, catalogues and other records, which he alleged in an affidavit that defendants had taken from his office. Defendants, by their counsel, Mr. Kilpatrick (instructed by Messrs. Farmer, Turner and Thompson), though admitting that they had issued circulars to a number of persons, including many whose names appeared in plaintiff's books, denied that they were the exclusive clients of plaintiff, and alleged that the properties of these persons were also on the books of many other agents. They also denied the removal of any catalogues or records from plaintiff's office. They claimed that in everything they had done they had acted in good faith, and had only used the ordinary modes of fair competition. After cross-examination of both defendants, Mr. Justice Hood said he thought defendants had acted neither improperly nor illegally in what they had done, and refused the injunction.15

  • 23 Dec 1933, DISPUTE OVER MOTORCAR. Hurried Plea To Judge
    The dispute between Alexander Mackie Younger, of North Road, Caulfield, builder and contractor, and Cecil James Stewart, of Swanston Street, Melbourne, auctioneer and farm valuer, over the sale of a Silver Ghost Rolls-Royce car, which was the subject of a judgment by the Acting Chief Justice
    of Victoria (Sir Frederick Mann) on Wednesday, was responsible for Mr Justice Dixon, of the High Court, being called to his chambers today.
    The judge is on vacation, and the Registrar (Col. Seaforth Mackenzie), and one of the clerks, had to forgo their usual Saturday morning off. Sir Frederick Mann had given judgment in favor of Younger, the purchaser of the car, for the price paid, £1025, on the ground that a fraudulent statement had been made by a man who had acted as an agent for Stewart in the sale of the car.
    Against that judgment. Stewart lodged notice of appeal. Younger then lodged an application that execution on the judgment be not stayed. In the circumstances, this was treated as urgent, and Mr Justice Dixon came in to hear the application.
    Mr Justice Dixon ordered that unless, on or before January 3, 1934, Stewart paid into the High Court the amount of the judgment. Younger should have leave to proceed to judgment, upon giving security, to the satisfaction of the Registrar, to abide the decision of the court of appeal. " He also ordered that a receiver be appointed, to hold the car in the meantime.23

  • 2 Aug 1906, BISHOP LANGLEY. AT DEATH'S DOOR.
    It is with sincere regret that we have to announce that the Right Rev. H. A. Langley, Anglican Bishop of Bendigo, is lying at his residence, Bishopscourt, White Hills, in a condition bordering on death. A week ago his Lordship was stricken with paraly sis, the faculty of speech and recognition leaving him. Since that time he has remained in a state of partial consciousness, only at brief intervals feebly recognising the members of the household.
    On Monday his Lordship's condition, though serious, was regarded in a hopeful light. On the following day, however, symptoms of an alarming nature were manifested, and Dr. Green had to be hastily summoned. The night was passed anxiously, and at 7.30 o'clock on Wednesday morning the watchers at the bedside noted a perceptible weakening of the heart's action. Drs. Green and De Ravin, in response to an urgent message, drove out to Bishopscourt, but could only confirm the fears of the household. His Lordship was indeed in a precarious condition, and practically no hope was held out for his recovery. The feeble flame of life had to be sustained by oxygen supplies, and last evening it was hoped that life would at least be protracted long enough to permit of the arrival of other members of the family, who are hurrying homeward from other States. Numerous messages of sympathy and anxious inquiries were received at Bishopscourt yes terday. Among those who communicated with the family were Dr. Saumarez Smith, Primate of Australia; Dr. Lowther Clarke. Archbishop of Melbourne; the stand ing committee of the Diocese of Sydney, Bishop Payne (Gippsland), Bishop Green (Ballarat), Bishop Armstrong (Wangaratta), and Archdeacon Hindley, Melbourne), besides scores of messages from parishioners and local clergymen.
    A resolution of sympathy with his Lord ship the Bishop of Bendigo in his present illness was on Tuesday evening passed by the meeting of Christ Church parishioners, Echuca.7
  • 6 Aug 1906, DEATH OF BISHOP LANGLEY. AN HONORED CAREER ENDED.
    Widespread regret will be felt at the announcement that the Bishop of Bendigo, the Right Rev. Henry Archdall Langley, died at his residence, Bishopscourt, White Hills, yesterday afternoon.
    On the 25th July his Lordship, after experiencing a trying day in Bendigo, returned to Bishopscourt in the evening, and soon afterwards sustained a paralytic seizure, consequent on a blood vessel bursting on the brain. He became unconscious, and from the outset it was recognised by his medical adviser (Dr. Green) that his Lordship's condition was grave. Dr De Ravin was called in consultation, and by the aid of artificial means, the patient's life was sustained for the space of 11 days, enabling all the members of his family, with the exception of the eldest son, Mr. F. A. Langley, who is hastening from Western Australia, to reach his Lordship's bedside. Bishop Langley appeared at times during his illness, to have brief intervals of consciousness, but as the paralytic stroke had deprived him of speech, the members of his family were not certain as to whether or not his Lordship recognised them. During last week Bishop Langley rallied slightly, but on Saturday night his condition became critical, and at 3.15 yesterday, afternoon he passed away peacefully, surrounded, by the members of his family. The immediate causes of death were cerebral hemorrhage, followed by heart failure.
    Profound sorrow will be created through out the Bendigo diocese at the death of his Lordship, and throughout Australia his loss to the Anglican Church will be mourned. During the 4½ years his Lordship had occupied the See of Bendigo; he had, by his genial disposition and his earnest warm-hearted, Christian character greatly endeared himself to the members of his own church, while the adherents of other denominations held him in affection and admiration for his broad-minded and tolorant attitude towards them. The deepest sympathy is felt for Mrs. Langley and family in the loss they have sustained. The late Bishop Langley was born in Dungarven, Ireland, and came to Australia in his boyhood. His ministerial training he received at Moore College, New South Wales, and was ordained deacon by the Bishop of Sydney in 1865 and priest in the following year, His first appointment was to the curacy of Bathurst, a charge which covered a very large district, and was subsequently formed into three parishes. During this curacy he was secretary of the Bathurst Bishopric Endowment Funds and took an active part in the creation of that see. In 1867 he took charge of the parishes of George's Plains and Orange—both in the diocese of Bathurst—and in 1870, on the occasion of the visit of Bishop Barker to England, he was appointed to assist the Dean of Sydney in the administration of diocesan affairs, but before the Bishops return he was nominated to the parish of Balmain, where he remained for five years. Then in 1876, when the Dean of Sydney visited England, he took charge of the parochial work in connection with St. An drew's Cathedral. A year later, by family considerations, he was led to accept the parish of Windsor, in the diocese of Sydney, and in 1878, at the invitation of Bishop Moorhouse, he was installed as incumbent of St. Matthew's, Prahran, a position he held with conspicuous sucess until 1890, when he was appointed Archdeacon of Gippsland, where he organised the archdeaconry and introduced the system of training readers for holy orders, now in vogue in that diocese. In 1891 he accepted the position of Archdeacon of Melbourne. Frequently his services were in demand for parochial mission work in the Victoria and New South Wales diocese. As a result of a paper given by him before a clerical meeting on the subject, the United Mission of 1902 was formed; subsequently he went to Melbourne; and was co-secretary with the Very Rev. J K Stretch, now Dean of Newcastle, in the inauguration of the first simultaneous mission in the metropolis.
    ...
    In addition to Mrs. Langley, who maintains good health, there also survive six sons and six daughters. The sons are Mr. Archie Langley, bank manager National Bank of Australasia, Leonora, W.A; Mr. Aylmer Langley, land salesman, Collins street, Melbourne; Rev. W. L. Langley, of St. Phillip's, Collingwood; Rev. H. T. Lang ley, of St. Phillip's, Sydney (who is with his uncle, Archdeacon J. D. Langley, rector of St. Phillip's), Dr. F. E. Langley, house doctor at the Alfred Hospital, Melbourne; Mr. Arthur Langley, who is in his second year of medicine at the Melbourne University. Of the daughters, the elder is the wife of the Rev. J. Carrington, of St. Peter's, Eaglehawk. The other daughters are the Misses Hilda, Ruth, Aphra, Nona, and Doris Langley.8
