W. FRANCIS AHERN
Thousands of the readers of the Australian Worker, Sydney, and the multitude of Labor supporters who were his personal friends, will learn with regret of the death of W. Francis Ahern, which took place at his home in Sydney last week after a prolonged illness which he bore with great fortitude. Frank Ahern, who was one of Australia's outstanding Labor journalists, for the past twenty-five years was associated with the Sydney "Worker" and his service to the cause of the workers, and his beloved Australia, will live long after the memory of his happy personality fades from the mundane sphere. Writing of his demise in the current issue of the Sydney "Worker" Editor H. E. Boote, his friend and colleague for so many years, says of him: "Everybody liked Frank Ahern. He had a way with him that took the bitterness out of even the strongest differences of opinion. His own views, nevertheless, were always firmly held and cogently stated. He held fast to Socialist principles, which he thoroughly understood and convincingly advocated. Compromise was not in his nature, but neither was intolerance of other people's opinions when honestly expressed. "As a Labor journalist no subject of public importance was beyond the range of his pen.

As a member of "The Worker" staff his all-round knowledge and his unusual memory were very valuable assets of which his colleagues frequently availed themselves. "During the conscription campaigns of 1916 and 1917 he did splendid work on the 'No' side, and his articles were largely drawn upon by anti-conscription speakers everywhere. "Never was there one more loyal to his mates and fellow workers. He played his part faithfully always, and more especially gave of his best in times of crisis, without counting the intensified labour it might entail. His dominating desire on all occasions was to do his job well and conscientiously, and act in comradely harmony with those with whom he was associated in the difficult tasks of Labor propaganda by the written word. "Add that he was beloved by his family, whose well-being was ever in his thoughts, and you will have some idea of what manner of man was William Francis Ahern.

"Born at Waralah, N.S.W., 58 years ago, he was thoroughly Australian in his sentiments, while at the same time socialistically international in his outlook on the world. "To his wife, his three daughters, and other relatives 'The Worker' staff and officials of the Australian Workers' Union extend their deepest sympathy."

LT. COL. GEORGE AHERN, AN OFFICER 60 YEARS
———————
Forestry Expert Fought for the Conservation of Woodland
———————
WASHINGTON, May 13 (AP) - Lieut. Col. George P. Ahern, U. S. A., retired, died here today at the age of 82. He was graduated in 1882 from West Point.
Colonel Ahern served in Cuba and the Philippines during the war with Spain, and remained in the Philippines to organize and direct the Office of Patents, Copyrights, and Trade-Marks and later the Bureau of Forestry for the Philippine Government. He was the author of several books on forestry.
   Retired with the rank of major in 1906, he held various active assignments later and was promoted to lieutenant colonel, retired, in 1930.
   Colonel Ahern leaves a widow, Jean Gill Ahern of Washington.
   Colonel Ahern explored the last block of unmapped territory in Montana in 1888. He was the explorer of Glacier National Park and his work is perpetuated on the maps that list Ahern Pass and Ahern Glacier.
He fought for more than forty years for the conservation of our forest resources.
   As a soldier he saw service in the Indian campaigns of the Northwest, the Spanish-American War, the Boxer Rebellion and the Philippine Insurrection. During the World War he was first assistant to the Chief of Military Intelligence and afterward Secretary of the War College. For gallantry in action in the Spanish War on June 30, 1898, he received the Silver Star decoration.
   He was born in New York on Dec. 29, 1859, the son of Patrick Henry Ahern and Ann Dwyer Ahern, who came to this country from Ireland. He was "a son of the Irish revolution," in his own words. His father, who was in the dry goods business, was a flag bearer in the Battle of Bull Run.
   His first active service was in the Indian campaigns in the Northwest. Chief Sitting Bull gave him the title of Chief Two Crows for his kindness in dealing with the Indians. He had a lasting empathy for the Indians and unceasingly endeavoured to obtain justice for them in Washington.

Denis "Dinny" Ahern
The death occurred at Ayr on Saturday of one of the best known and respected of the district's farming community, Mr. Denis Ahern, of Airdale. The late Mr. "Dinny" Ahern was a native of Athea, County Limerick, Ireland, where he was born in 1871. As a youth of 19 he came to Australia and went to the Lower Burdekin, where he engaged in agricultural pursuits on land owned by his uncle, the late Mr. W. D. Casey, so well known in Charters Towers mining. After 18 months there Mr. Ahern went to the Towers, where he became an amalgamator at the St. George Mill. He was a successful speculator In mining, and later acquired the farm lands at Ayr which he had known earlier, and since 1903 he had made his home there.

While engaged in sugar growing, Mr. Ahern was always interested in dairy cattle. He brought the first Illaqarras to the Ayr district, and always had a few good cows, and at the Ayr and Towneville shows took a keen interest in the dairy section. He believed in feeding well, and to ensure having feed in good seasons and bad, grew and conserved fodder for his cattle. Pastures became a hobby with him, and at the time of his death he had a nice lot of South African grasses growing, for which he had written to South Africa. General Smuts had taken a personal interest in these, and had the seed despatched to North Queensland.

Mr. Ahern had the greatest faith in the Lower Burdekin district and its people. A progressive farmer, he was ever ready to assist others, and earned the respect of a large circle of friends, evidence of which was the large crowd which attended his funeral on Sunday afternoon. The deceased is survived by his widow, three sons (William, a prisoner of the Japanese in Hongkong; John and Joseph, Ayr), and five daughters (Mrs. Breen, Brisbane; Mrs. Lawson, Ayr; Mrs. Clayton, Ayr; and Misses Mary and Rene, Sydney). Two brothers also reside in North Queensland (William, Ayr; and Cornelius, Babinda). [see also: Michael Ahern]

Lieut. Commander William John Ahern
The sinking of the Lusitania is recalled by the death at the age of 83 years, of Lieut. Commander Wm. Ahern, D. S. C., R. N. (retired) at his residence, Beechmount, Cove. Joining the Royal Navy as a boy he quickly reached commissioned rank and he was in command of the torpedo flotilla at Cork Harbour during the first world war. His boat, O.52 was the first vessel by half an hour to arrive at the scene of the sinking of the Lusitania, and he took aboard a large number of survivors, three of whom died on the way back to the harbour. Later his vessel was credited with the sinking of a German submarine off the Cork coast for which he was awarded the Distinguished Service Cross.

NAVAL VETERAN.
Death of Lieut.-Commander W. Ahern, Cove.
The death took place, after a short illness, at his residence Beechmount, Cove, of Lieut. Commander William Ahern, R.N. (retired). Deceased, who was a native of the town, joined the British Navy as a boy, and during his service took part in a number of wars. In the Anglo- Egyptian campaign, of 1882, he participated in the bombardment of Alexandria, and it was a coincidence that on the 60th anniversary of that engagement, his grandson, Lieut. Malcolm English, should be called upon while serving also with the British Navy, to take part in an attack on the same port in 1942; when it was occupied by the Italians. Following some service aboard a training ship in Cork Harbour, deceased was sent to take part in the Boer War, and he was one of the first party of sailors to land in South Africa. Later he saw service aboard the flagship of the Mediterranean Fleet. He retired with the rank of Warrant Officer in 1912.

During the World War No. 1, deceased was recalled to active service and commanded a flotilla of torpedo boats in Cork Harbour throughout the conflict. He was promoted Lieutenant in 1915, and shortly afterwards was awarded the D.S.C. for service rendered to the destroyer "Marlay" when she grounded off Cork Harbour. He also rendered valuable assistance when the Cunard Liner "Lusitania" was torpedoed off the Old Head of Kinsale. His boat, O.52, was the first vessel by half an hour to arrive at the scene of the sinking of the Lusitania and he took aboard a large number of survivors, three of whom died on the way back to the harbour. Later his vessell was credited with the sinking of a German submarine off the Cork coast. He finally retired with the rank of Lieutenant-Commander at the conclusion of the 1914-1918 war.

Many of his comrades were amongst the representative cortege which followed the remains when they were removed yesterday from St. Colman's Cathedral to the Old Church cemetery. Rev. T. F. Murphy, C.C., assisted by Ver. Rev. D. O'Connor, Adm., officiated at the graveside.

The chief mourners were Mrs. H. English (daughter), Mr. S. English (son-in-law), Mr. Wm. English (grandson), Mrs. Wm. English, Mrs. M. English, Mrs. Burke, Miss M. Aherne, Mr. R. Ahern, Mr. R.

Amongst those present were Lieut.-Commanders W. H. Payne, V. O'Shea, J. Stafford, D. Fenton, Dr. J. J. O'Connor, Mr. J. J. Healy, P.C. and family; Messrs. J. J. Wilson, M.P.S.I., U.D.C., J.

Large Number At Funeral Of Detective
The funeral yesterday of Detective V. D. Ahearn, who was shot by a gunman on Sunday, was one of the largest seen in North Sydney. Christ Church, Lavender Bay, was crowded for a memorial service. About 300 members of the police force remained in the street, and many other sympathisers were unable to get into the church. Detective-Constable Alexander Bowie, who was injured in the police car in which Detective Ahearn was shot, was among the mourners. The funeral service was conducted by the Rev. Dr. Frank Cash. Archbishop Mowll, who gave the address at the service, said he hoped it would be some comfort to Mrs. Ahearn that so large and representative a gathering had come together to do honour to her husband, who in the course of his duty had suddenly been killed.
INCREASING DEBT
"Others are here," said Archbishop Mowll, "to show regard for the police force, to whom the community owes an increasing debt of gratitude. "The episode of last Sunday afternoon brings home to everyone the risk continually being run by members of the force. We are grateful to them for what they are doing to protect us." Boy Scouts of the 1st Lavender Bay Troop, of which Max Ahearn, son of the detective, is a member, occupied the choir seats at the service. The coffin was carried from the church after the service by Detectives Whiteman, Fagan. Griffin, Kelly, and Tupper, who had worked with Detective Ahearn. A detachment of about 300 uniformed and plainclothes men preceded the hearse. These were followed by a company of' military police in the charge of Captain Wiseman, and by members of the New South Wales Fire Brigade under Inspector J. Neville, who also represented the Chief Officer and the Board of Fire Commissioners.
CITIZENS LINE ROUTE
The funeral proceeded through the city to Rookwood Cemetery. The cortege as it left the church was preceded by motor cyclists, a detachment of mounted police, and the police band. Along Lavender Street, Blues Point Road, and Blue Street to Bradfield Highway the route was lined by hundreds of spectators. Ordinary traffic along the route to the Bridge was held up for about half an hour. There were about 100 motor cars following the hearse. The chief mourners were Mrs. Ahearn, widow, Max Ahearn, son; Mr. P. Ahearn, father; Mrs. R. Moon, and Mrs. A. Clarke, sisters, Messrs. Moon and Clarke, brothers-in-law; and Mr. and Mrs. H. Mallard, father-in-law and mother-in-law. Officers and members of Masonic Lodge Tuscan also attended. Superintendent J. F. Scott represented the Chief Commissioner, Mr. Mackay. Other police officers present included Superintendent B. E. Sadler, who was in charge of the police arrangements; Superintendents F. Matthews, T. Wickham, and N. D. James, of the C.I.B.; Superintendent W. E. Sherringham, Inspectors M. Cahill, W. L. Alford, C. Kennedy, and J. Nealon; ex-Superintendent W. Sherringham and a number of retired officers and men.

ACCIDENT VICTIM TAKEN TO HOSPITAL—Police Officer John McNiff, at one end of stretcher, and Chauffeur John Brodley, in ambulance, are shown, assisted by bystanders, as they prepare to remove Andrew L. Ahern of Watertown, to hospital after he was struck by a truck at Merrimack and Central streets late yesterday afternoon. Ahern was pronounced dead upon arrival at St. John's hospital.
   LOWELL — A 50-year-old Watertown man was instantly killed about 4.50 o'clock yesterday afternoon when he was struck by a huge tank truck on Merrimack street near Central street.
   The victim, Andrew L. Ahern, of 26 Chauncey street, Watertown, was pronounced dead upon arrival at St. John's hospital where he was taken in the police department ambulance manned by Officer John McNiff and Chauffeur John Brodley. It was reported that he was employed in Billerica.
   Operator of the vehicle, a fully loaded 15-ton tank truck owned by the Consolidated Rendering company of North Billerica, was David Valorose, 33, or [sic] 19 Apple street. Valorose stated that he did not see Ahern and was not aware of the tragedy until he heard a thump at the rear of his truck and heard screams.
   Hospital officials reported that Ahern sustained numerous internal injuries including several broken ribs. He also suffered fractures of both legs and an ankle injury, it was reported.
Probe Accident
   Inspector Warren A. MacDonnell of the registry of motor vehicles and Officer Bernard Gilbo investigated the accident. Valorose told them that he was stopped at the intersection and upon receiving a “Go” signal from Officer Gilbo, made a right turn onto Merrimack street, when he felt the thump and heard the screams. He applied the brakes immediately to the slow-moving vehicle but apparently, the dual wheels on the truck passed over Ahern before it could be brought to a halt.
   Although the streets in the area were jammed with pedestrians taking advantage of the excellent weather, authorities were unable to immediately procure the names of any witnesses to the tragedy. They are continuing their search for someone who could provide more information on the accident and asked the public's co-operation on the matter in an effort to bring about an accurate conclusion to their probe.
   Ahern is survived by two sisters, Margaret T. Ring of Watertown, with whom he made his home and Mrs. Harry Fox of 9 Henstead road, Jamaica Plain, Boston. [see also: Patrick J. Ahern]

Edmond F. Ahern
E. F. AHERN DIES
Former Contractor Spanish-American War Veteran Had Served On Board of Welfare
Edmond F. Ahern of 1 Webster Street, retired president of Welch and Company, general contractor, and former welfare commissioner died at his home Thursday night. He was 73. Mr. Ahern was stricken while shoveling snow at his home. He was born in Hartford October 3, 1874, a son of the late Daniel E. and Susan Howard Ahern. He had lived in this city all his life. He was a veteran of the Spanish-American War. He first entered the general construction business with his father and later was president of the Ahern and Welch Company. During his 40 years in the field he supervised the construction of many local schools and public buildings. Among the schools his firm constructed are Alfred E. Burr School, Washington Street School, Moylan School and St. Augustine's Parochial School. He also was in charge of building the Hartford Public Market, Pope Park recreational building and St. Augustine's Rectory. When St. Augustine's Church was enlarged at the beginning of the 1930's his firm was called on to take down the side walls of the church and reconstruct them several feet away. This feat was done without interrupting the regular church services and without the loss of a single stone. Mr. Ahern was chairman of the board of trustees of Hartford Lodge No.19, BPOE, of which he has been a member since 1900. He was a trustee of St. Augustine's Church, a memeber of the Knights of Columbus, the Eight Ball Club, Holy Name Society of St. Augustine's Church, past captain of Charles L. Burdette Camp, USWV, a member of St. Augustine's Post, Catholic War Veterans. During the Spanish American War he served with Company K, First Connecticut Volunteer Infantry. He is a former member of Company B, First Regiment, Connecticut National Guard. He was a familiar fixture to members of the Elks and was in charge of repairs and building improvements to its clubhouse on Prospect Street for many years. He was a member of the commitee which started the annual Children's Party, sponsored by the Elks, Shriners and Knights of Columbus members 26 years ago and had attended each party. He was elected to serve on the Welfare Board in 1945, going out of office with the last board when the City Manager form of government was put into effect in January. Because of the esteem in which Mr. Ahern was held by members of the Elks the annual St. Patrick's Day Dance and Eight Ball Club Minstrel Show scheduled to be held at the clubhouse tonight has been postponed until March 20. Mr. Ahern leaves two daughters, Miss Katherine Ahern, and Mrs. Raymond G. Brown of Danvers, Mass; four sons, Daniel Ahern, Francis Ahern and David Ahern all of Hartford, and Howard Ahern of New Britain; four sisters, Miss Ellen Ahern, Miss Agnes Ahern, Mrs. Frank Perry and Mrs. Benjamin Caulfield, all of Hartford; seven grandchildren and several nieces and nephews. Services will be held at the Ahern Funeral Home, 180 Farmington Avenue. Monday at 9:15 am followed by a solemn requiem mass at St. Augustine's Church at 10 o'clock. Burial will be in Mt. St. Benedict Cemetery.

REV. FR. AHERN CALLED BY DEATH
Many Attend Last Rites For Beloved Priest
ELK, Oct. 13—The sudden death of the Rev. Father [Donatus] Ahern, who was found dead in the Parish of this place Saturday afternoon, was a distinct shock to the entire coast. He was found by two ladies from up the coast who came to Greenwood to call on him. They found the door open and upon entering found Father Ahern, fully clothed, lying on his bed, dead. He came here three months ago to take the place of Father Leopold O'Riordan who went to Ireland for a vacation. It was known that Father Ahern was not well, but it was not realized he was so ill. Twelve years ago, he came here and filled this parish for six years, after which he was transferred to Willits.

Fr. Ahern was a native of County Cork, Ireland, and was 52 years of age. Prior to becoming a priest, he had received a degree in civil engineering at the National University of Ireland. He was for many years a Missionary and was a member of St. Patrick's Capuchin Monastery of Willington [sic], Delaware. He is survived by several brothers and sisters in Ireland.

A Solemn Requiem Mass was celebrated in the church here Wednesday morning, which was beautiful, and many priests were in attendance. The music for the Mass was furnished by the Dominican Sisters from the Albertinum, Ukiah, and interment was in the plot of the Capuchin Fathers in the Ukiah cemetery.
