- VERY SUDDEN DEATH. .
- AN OLD BALLARAT RESIDENT'S END
- Mr. Richard Ince, of Ballarat, who was paying a visit to Melbourne, died very suddenly at the Victoria Coffee Palace, Collins-street, last night. Mr. Ince, who was 72 years of age, was a well-known resident of Ballarat, where he had conducted a flourishing tailoring business and brought up a family. Yesterday he married again, and, it is said, intended with his young wife to take a trip to the old country. He took a room at the Victoria Coffee Palace, and purposed catching the R.M.S. Ophir at Adelaide per express train. Soon after Mr. and Mrs. Ince had retired, at 9 p.m., the former was taken ill, and collapsed. Dr. Officer, in response to a telephone call for assistance, attended promptly, but on his arrival, at about 9.40 p.m., found Mr. Ince dead. The coroner has been notified. The deceased gentleman was widely known and highly respected throughout this and other States, and will be deeply regretted. He leaves a grown up family. Messrs. Ince Bros., tailors, of Swanston-street, are his sons.
