DEATH OF A HASTINGS MAGISTRATE. LONG AND ACTIVE LIFE OF MR. STRICKLAND. The Robertson-
A staunch but very liberal Nonconformist, he attached himself to the Robertson-
Love of travel was perhaps his greatest recreation, and he visited many countries in Europe as well as in the near East and America. He was a great reader, a man who, though never in the limelight, was ever the alert to cultivate his mental powers and then pass on to others the fruits he had gathered in the fields of literature, art and science.
Mr. Strickland married in 1878, Jane, the eldest daughter William and Mary Ann Slade, of Hastings. He was made Justice of the Peace 18 years ago and sat regularly on the bench until failing health prevented him carrying out his magisterial duties. A memorial service will be held at the Congregational Church on Monday at 2.30 to be followed by the interment at the Borough Cemetery at 3.15 p.m.
