Old members of the Catholic Truth Society will learn with regret of the death, last Tuesday, of Mr. J. H. McChane, who was for many years the Society's Manager. Mr. McShane had reached an advanced age. He retired from active duty about twelve years ago.
At the time when Mr. McShane entered the service of C.T.S., the Society, if not actually in its infancy. was so near to that early period that he took charge ire the first public depot, the shop in Westminster Bridge Road. SE., on the site of which building St. George's Hall was afterwards erected. He went with the migration to Southwark Bridge Road, and throughout the long period in that locale saw the work advance and extend into many parts of the English-sneaking world.
When the Society crossed the river into Westminster Mr, McShane continued at his post. and it was not until the scheme of reorganisation was effected, in Victoria Street, that he was induced to relinquish the task to other and younger hands. He will be remembered as truly one of those " good and faithful servants " who guard the;r trust with unstinted devotion to duty.
