OCTOBER 31, 1895


A TRAGIC END : One of the broadest thinkers and most highly respected men that Collingwood Township has been proud to claim for many years, passed quietly and painlessly away on Tuesday night under circumstances that were most sad and startling.

 Mr. Thomas B. White of the Tenth Concession, while with a number of ratepayers were discussing at Lougheed's schoolhouse the advisability of an appeal in the Holladay case, was stricken down without a moments warning. He had been ably and most forcibly advocating no appeal and it is thought that the excitement occasioned by an interrogation on the statement that he had made, was the cause of his sudden death. He had taken his seat and while Mr. Hartman was making the closing speech of the evening the latter gentleman noticed a peculiar change in Mr. White's appearance and at the same time, a fainting fit. Without another word, Mr. Hartman was at the old man's side and as he dropped over, let him gently down to the floor where everything that could possibly be done to restore consciousness was tried but without effect, for the heart had soon ceased its action and the soul of the grand old man passed from its clay tenement. For a time hope was in the breast of every man present that the spark of life might not yet have gone out, and Dr. Large was sent for in posthaste. When he arrived, however, the body was becoming cold, and heart failure had claimed another victim.
 Too much can not be said in praise of the subject of our sketch. He was always true to his convictions, honest in every dealing with his fellowmen, possessed a brainy intellect and was honoured by all who knew him.
  It is needless to say that the startling event created a profound impression on all  present in the face of the boisterous, exciting meeting that was all but closed. The vote had not yet been taken and never will be, for who would dare disturb the quiet dead with such a paltry matter?
  We hear occasionally of old statesmen, when in the course of great debate, so exciting their husbanded strength and power for the particular event, that a similar fate ensues, and are not much surprised, but to think that these uncalled for meetings, to please the whim of certain parties, should produce such results, pains to the very centre of our systems.
  Our warmest and most heartfelt sympathy goes out to the wife and family in their deep affliction. Deceased was in his 71st year.
