Mrs. and Miss Galletly and Captain Thompson's Obsequies Take Place

At 11 o'clock this morning the remains of the late Mrs. and Miss Galletly will be borne from Christ church cathedral after the funeral service to Ross Bay cemetery. A meeting of the Victoria clearing house, held on Monday, decided that business at the banks should be suspended, as far as possible, during the funeral of Mrs. and Miss Galletly, and the banks have requested their customers to act with them in showing this last token of respect to the bereaved family.

Full military honors will be accorded the remains of the late Capt. Livingston Thompson on the way to their last resting place. The Grange Association of Victoria will also attend in a body the funeral of their late worshipful brother. The Fifth Regiment will march from the Drill hall shortly after 2 p.m. for Christ church cathedral to attend the last service. Three captains of the Fifth and three captains from the forces at Work Point barracks will be pallbearers, and the coffin will be borne on a gun carriage. A full attendance of members of the Fifth Regiment is expected owing to the great popularity of the late Captain Thompson.

After a short private service at his late residence, Gorge road, at 12:30 p.m. today, the remains of the late Mr. N.P. Shaw will be conveyed to St. James church, where service will be held at 1 o'clock.

Today at 2 p.m. the funeral of the late Mr. Hudson will take place, under the auspices of the local Eagles, from W.J. Hanna's parlors.
