DECLARED HE WAS A SINNER
Belfast Youth Who Confessed to Robbery

The strange story of a young man who went to the police and confessed to a robbery after attending religious meetings, at which he declared he was a sinner, was told at the Belfast Custody Court yesterday.   The young man, Samuel Irvine, of Argyle Street, stood in the dock with William Newell, both being charged with breaking into the workshops of Messrs. Megarry & Johnston, photographers, of Bridge Street, on May 17, and stealing £10 6s.  In his statement to the police Irvine said that he and Newell wanted to be "dressed" for the holidays, but, being out of work and getting no dole, they decided to rob Megarry & Johnston's, where he (the prisoner) was employed eighteen months ago.  The Rev. Robert Byers, the minister of the Sandy Row Methodist Church, told the magistrates that Irvine had been attending his meetings, and, declaring himself to be a sinner, decided to confess to the robbery.  Remarking that the lad had never been given a chance, the minister said that he was trying to find Irvine a job, so that restitution could be made.  "I believe he is going to lead a new life."  Mr. Byers added.  Newell was discharged on account of insufficient evidence, and the charge against Irvine being reduced to one of simple larceny, he was allowed out on bail on condition that he came before the Court again in three months. time.  The R.M. (Mr. O'Donoghue), pointed out that Irvine's conduct in the meantime would determine what course the Bench would take at the end of the probationary period.

ULSTER NEW YORK FIRE CHIEF
TOUR IN NATIVE PROVINCE
Lieut. Dennison Revisits Belfast

Of County Armagh birth, Lieutenant Joseph Dennison, of the New York City Fire Department, accompanied by his two sisters, has been revisiting his native Ulster and took occasion before returning to the State to avail of the opportunity of making an inspection of the Belfast Fore Brigade Headquarters.  Lieut. Dennison, who is an experienced officer of the great New York fire-fighting department, was received with characteristic courtesy by the superintendent, Mr. James Stafford (who, by the way, was presented three years ago with the Long Service Medal of the Professional Fire Brigade Officers' Association), and conducted over the splendidly-equipped Chichester Street concern.

The New York fire officer took a keen interest in all the details of the plant, machinery, and organisation, and expressed himself delighted at the spic and span appearance of the brigade headquarters in all departments, the arrangements for expeditious reception of news of fires and turn-out of men and machines.  He also said he was much impressed by the system of training firemen for altitudes - an opinion which derives significance from the fact that New York is the home of "sky-scrapers"; and he admired the system of housing in the married quarters.

Lieutenant Dennison also made a round of the City Hall and other public buildings, and saw through the offices of the "Belfast Telegraph" in the numerous departments. During his visit, Lieut. Denison and his sisters made stay with their aunt Mrs. Magee, at Drumadd, Co. Armagh.  Before taking up his appointment in the New York Fire Department some eleven years ago, Lieut. Denison has held a responsible position in the extensive stores of the firm of Messrs. Rogers, Peet.  He sailed via Queenstown last night (Friday).

ABANDONED MOTOR-CAR
SUICIDE OF CRIPPLE OWNER

Three weeks ago a motor-car, with headlights full on, was found at Swarkestone Bridge, six miles from Derby.  There was nobody in attendance, but on the driver's seat was found a pamphlet opened at a page containing an article entitled "Suicides in everyday life."  Recently the body of the owner of the car, Mr. George Harry Pass, of Hillside, Little Eaton, was recovered from the river Derwent, and at an inquest conducted on Friday a verdict of suicide whilst of unsound mind was returned.  Witnesses stated that Pass, who was a cripple, had complained of pains in his feet.  He had no financial worries, however, being a director of a leading garage in the town of Derby.

The subject of the photograph reproduced to the left, Master James Anderson, son of Mr. Francis Anderson, son of Mr. Francis Anderson, 17 Sherwood Street, Belfast, has been awarded a certificate of merit, being the second prizewinner in the Duke of Cumberland's essay competition in connection with the Lifeboat Institution.

This competition is open to scholars under sixteen years of age attending senior classes of elementary schools in Great Britain and Ireland, and therefore the distinction gained by this bright Belfast boy is one upon which he is to be warmly congratulated.

Master Anderson is a pupil of the McQuiston Institute Public Elementary School.

MADE HOBBY OF SAVING LIFE.

A sea career, with a record of heroism honoured by the King and the Government, has been brought to a close by the retirement of Captain John Parry, O.B.E., of the Leyland Line.  In 1882, when second mate of the Clydevale, he jumped overboard and rescued a sailor of the Elizabeth, in Malaga.  In 1898, as chief officer of the Ottoman, he took 37 of the crew of the Scotsman off the rocks at Belle Isle.
     In 1906, as captain of the Bostonian, he rescued 18 of the crew of the British King, and received plate from the Government, and the Shipwreck and Humane Society's gold medal, the New York Life-saving gold medal, and the Emile Robins award for the most meritorious act of the year.
     In 1912 he prevented an insane man from jumping overboard.
     In 1917, as captain of the Georgian, he went down with his ship, got into a collapsible boat, and rescued nine Greek soldiers.
     In 1920, as captain of the Oxonian, he rescued 25 of the crew of the Bradboyne, in a heavy gale in the North Atlantic.
     He received the O.B.E. for services during the war.

TWO ULSTERMEN'S WILLS

Mr. R. McBride, Bladon Park, Belfast, linen merchant, chairman of McBride & Co. Ltd., left £70,115.  Amongst the bequests is £200 to his coachman, Wm. Malcomson.  He had left by his will several legacies to charities, but these were revoked by codicil.

Mr. John Montgomery, Cranmore Avenue, Belfast, left £11,777.  Amongst the bequests are £200 to All Souls', Elmwood Avenue, Belfast, and £100 to the minister; £500 to the Royal Victoria Hospital, Belfast; £500 to the Subscription Fund of the Irish Non-Subscribing Presbyterians; £200 to the Orphan Society in connection with that body; £200 to his housekeeper, Eliza Milliken.

HEROIC TRAWLER HAND
THRILLING RESCUE OF MATE
Seen by Crowd on Quay

Crowds of holiday-makers and relatives of crews who were waving farewell to Fleetwood trawlers as they left port for the fishing grounds saw an exciting rescue yesterday.  They were standing on the quayside when one of the new luxury trawlers owned by Macline Ltd., names Northern Wave, steamed out of dock bound for the Iceland fishing grounds,  As soon as she got into the middle of the river most of her crew went aft to wave to their wives and sweethearts ashore, and as they were waving and the trawler was giving answering blasts on her siren, the crowd were horrified to see one of the crew overbalance and fall headlong into the sea.
     Woman immediately began screaming, but the man had not been in the sea a minute when the crowd saw another fisherman dive over the side of the trawler, fully clothed, to the rescue of his shipmate.  There were shouts aboard the ship, which pulled up, while the people ashore dashed for the lifebuoys which are always kept in readiness for emergency along the quayside.  A strong tide was running, and both men were being swept away by the powerful current, but they managed to reach the quayside in an exhausted condition.
     Lifebuoys were thrown to them, and they were hauled to safety.  It was then learned that the man who fell overboard was Albert Sievewright, aged 21 (single), a native of Aberdeen but lodging in Fleetwood.  His rescuer was Thomas Harrison, aged 22 (married), of Walmsley Street, Fleetwood.  Four years ago Harrison dived overboard from the Fleetwood steam trawler Hildina and rescued a fisherman at the Northern Ireland fishing grounds.

YOUNG BRIDE JAILED
YEAR'S TERM FOR THEFT

Married for two months, a young husband saw his bride leave the dock at Tottenham Police Court, London, to serve a year's imprisonment for theft.  The bride was Lily Laken, aged 21, of Walthamstow, who pleaded guilty to four charged of theft.  It was alleged that she called at houses in Tottenham where there were rooms to let.  After seeing the rooms it was her plan to accept them and then say that she would like a cup of tea.  While the woman occupier was preparing it Laken took money from her handbag.  A detective said that Laken had been previously in prison for similar thefts.  The magistrate said he was very sorry for the young husband.

AIDING PAROCHIAL FUNDS
MONEYMORE TENNIS TOURNAMENT

A tennis tournament in aid of parochial funds was held on the Manor House courts, Moneymore, kindly lent by the Misses C. and A. Lenox-Conyngham, on Wednesday and Thursday.  Rev. W. A. B.

     In the final of the mixed doubles Miss Helen Lavery and Mr. J. Mayne, Cookstown, defeated Miss McAlister, of Kildress and Mr. M. Nelson, Cookstown.  The ladies' doubles were won by Miss McAlister and Miss Cluff, Kildress, Messrs. B. Christie and W. McLernon, of Magherafelt, beat Messrs. I. Fleming and E. Elliott, of Cookstown.
     On the motion of Rev. C. T. Jackson, seconded by Rev. W. A. B. Jackson, a vote of thanks was accorded the Misses Lenox-Conyngham for the use of the courts.  Miss C. Lenox-Conyngham acknowledged.

LATE MR. R. S. JEFFERSON
Tributes by Guardians

To-day at the Belfast Board of Guardians tribute was paid to the late Mr. R. S. Jefferson.  Mr. James Jamison (chairman) said Mr. Jefferson had been with them that day week in perfect health and strength and very happy.  That day he had gone from amongst them and they missed him very much.  Mr. Jefferson's father had been an old and respected member of that Board.  When he died, Mr. Jefferson took his place.  Their deceased colleague was a man who had always been doing good by stealth, being of a most charitable disposition.  He moved that they send a letter of sympathy to his widow and family.  Mr. Small seconded the motion, which was supported by Messrs. Ardis, J.P.; Fulton, Leacock, McGookin, Cochrane, J.P.; Hart, Lowe, Loan and Lyttle, also the clerk, Mr. R. W. Craig, on behalf of himself and the members of his staff, and passed, all standing in token of sorrow.

General News

starts halfway through item....
.........Mrs. Edith Annie Brown said that she was holding her little girl's hand as she was crossing the road. "I had taken a few steps off the kerb," she said, "when all of a sudden the car seemed to swoop on me - absolutely swoop down on me. I clung tighter to me little girl's hand, but I could see their was no hope/ I could not go forward, and I could not go back. The car just seemed to come forward into me and take my little girl out of my hand, and tore by me along the road. I thought it was not going to stop at all. The swiftness of the car seemed to hold her on to the side, and when it had got some distance along the road I saw her fall back."  Mrs. Brown herself was not injured. Ronald George, Saddlington, of Vinery Road, Cambridge, who was cycling near the scene of the accident, estimated the speed at between 35 and 40 mph. Leslie Garnet Willis, of Holbroke Road, Cambridge, a passenger in a car which Reilly's car passed, estimated the speed of Reilly's vehicle at 50 to 55 mph, and added, "In my opinion he was driving in a reckless manner, having regard to the nature of the road." Saddington said that it was amazing that Mrs. Brown was not hit by the car also. Robert George Watkins, of Hill's Road, Cambridge, driver of the car in which Mr. Willis was a passenger, estimated the speed of Reilly's car to be at least 50 mph. This was also the estimate of John Anthony Orr-Ewing, until recently an undergraduate of Jesus College, Cambridge, who was walking near the scene.

DEATH OF REV. J. B. BRADSHAW
RECTOR OF ALL SAINTS

     The death occurred with tragic suddenness on Monday night of Rev. J. B. Bradshaw, M.A., rector of All Saints' Parish Church, Belfast, and is deeply regretted by his many friends.

     Seemingly in his usual health, Mr. Bradshaw spent the weekend at Ballycastle with his only son, Mr. Arthur Bradshaw, who recently joined the Army from Campbell College.

     When he returned on Monday evening he complained of feeling unwell and went to his sister's nursing home.  There it was apparent that he was seriously ill and despite the fact that the most expert medical advice was called he gradually sank and passed away.

     Mr. Bradshaw was the only son of the late Mr. J. B. Bradshaw, who resided at Eglantine Avenue, and of Mrs. Bradshaw, now of Ballygally, Co. Antrim.

    He took his degree at Trinity College, Dublin. Ordained in 1914, his first curacy was the parish of St. Mary Magdalene, Belfast.  In 1916 he was appointed curate of the Cathedral, Lisburn, and in 1923 he was selected as rector of Aghalee.

     In 1930 All Saints' became vacant through the appointment of Rev. R. H. C. Elliott to St. Patrick's, Ballymacarrett, and Mr. Bradshaw was chosen for this important parish.

     Courteous, kindly and sympathetic, he made many friends amongst all classes of the community during his thirteen years' service there, and his passing is genuinely mourned.

     He was beloved by his parishioners and the news of his death came as a terrible shock to them, many not knowing that he was ill.

     He is survived by his wife, who is a daughter of Mr. Joseph Lockhart, solicitor, Lisburn; his son, mother, and sister with all of whom the deepest sympathy is expressed.
