DEATH OF MR. ERNEST PARONS. Mr. Ernest Parsons, who was well known in Kalgoorlie, was found dead near Scotia Siding, on the Menzies railway. line, Wednesday. The first message received in Kalgoorlie relative to the. matter stated that a man had been lost in the bush, and asked for the services of a black tracker. It was stated that he had wandered away from his camp and had not returned. A tracker left Kalgoorlie, but when he arrived the body of the deceased had been found. It is believed to be a case of poisoning.
The body was taken to Goongarrie, and then to the morgue at Broad Arrow. The deceased arrived in Coolgardie from Southern Cross in the early days to manage the Commercial Bank at the former town. He was also manager of the Commercial Bank at Southern Cross.- Afterwards he came to Kalgoorlie, and was connected for some years,. up to the time of the insurance war, with the South British Company. He was also valuator for the Kalgoorlie Roads Board up to the time of his death. He is said to have been in financial trouble, although his creditors did not press him, and his losses were mainly due to the slump in Boulder Deep Level shares. On giving up the insurance business he went to the Baden Powell mine, and worked his own interest with Mr. Stewart, one of his partners. 'Two or three crushing’s had been made and are understood to have been satisfactory.
One is being put through at the present time. but the result is not known.
Deceased wrote a letter to a Kalgoorlie friend last Thursday, when he stated that he expected 4 oz. to the ton. He had not been in ill health up to the time of his death. Deceased was a brother to the late H. A. Parsons, who carried on a stationery. business in Hannan street. His father lives at Gosford, N.S.W, and a brother is the manager of a branch of the Commercial Bank in Gippsland, Victoria
