REV. PINE TAMAHORI. It is with much regret that we record the death, m the Gisborne Hospital, on July 22nd, of the Rev. Pine Tamahori. After a brilliant career at Te Aute College', he matriculated m 1904, and passed on the following year to Te Rau College, Gisborne. He passed Grades I. and 11. in 1905, Grade 111. m 1906 and Grade IV. m 1907 and 1908. He was ordained Deacon by the Bishop of Waiapu m 1908 and Priest m 1911. From 1908 to 1912 he was assistant tutor at Te Rau College, under the Rev. F. W. Chatterton, and m the latter year he was appointed to the charge of the Maori Cure of Hikurangi, m the Waiapu County. He was a man of considerable intellectual ability, and won the respect and affection of the Maori and pakeha alike. In his younger days he was a keen footballer, and has for many years represented the East Coast on the New Zealand Rugby Union. A few weeks ago he thought it wise to consult a doctor, but did not imagine his trouble to be serious. It turned out, however, to be cancer of the liver, and he underwent an operation m the Gisborne Hospital on Monday, 17th. On "Wednesday, 19th, he took a bad turn, and gradually sank, passing away on the 22nd. His place

will be hard to fill. His loss will be mourned by many friends. His wife and family will have the sympathy of all who knew him. There passed away on June 29th last, m Napier, the Rev. Oliver Dean, who retired from the active work of the ministry 14 years ago. The deceased gentleman, who was well and favourably known beyond the bounds of this Diocese, was born m London m 1856. He came to New Zealand as a young man and took Holy Orders. He was first curate m Gisborne, then vicar of Woodville, and later, for a period of 27 years, vicar of St. Andrew's, Port Ahuriri. He relinquished active service m 1919, and has lived m retirement at Napier since then, taking occasional services until the last year or two. He is survived by his wife and four children, to whom is given the deepest sympathy of a wide circle of friends throughout the Diocese. Another notable character passed to his rest m the person of the late Mr Henry Hill, on July 14th. Mr Hill was at one time a member of Synod. His life interest was education, and those who were privileged to know him will cherish his memory. He reached the ripe age of 84 years, and gave a life of splendid service to his country. To his sorrowing relatives we extend our sincere sympathy.
