DEATH OF MR. EVANDER MCIVER. .
We have already had to chronicle the loss, this winter, of several old colonists. At the meeting of the Brunswick Town Council on Monday evening, the Mayor (Cr. Hamilton, Smith) presiding, . information was received of the death of Mr. Evander. McIver; surveyor and treasurer to the Brunswick Council, which took place early on Monday morning at his residence, Park street, Brunswick, after a long and painful illness, in the 68th year of his age. The deceased gentleman was also for many years shire secretary and engineer to the shire of Broadmeadows, while he was also consulting engineer to the Brunswick, Essendon, Flemington and Kensington. and North Melbourne councils. Mr. McIver was for many years a resident of Brunswick, where he was well known, and respected. He was thrice married, his third wife surviving him; together with several children by,the second.and third marriage.
As soon as a quorum of councillors had assembled, Cr. J. W Flemng rose and move that the council pass the payments on the notice paper, and adjourn for 14 days out of respect to the; deceased officer. After paying a graceful tribute to the deceased gentleman, Cr M Balfe seconded the, motion, and. endorsed the remarks of the previous speaker. The motion was carried unanimously. Cr. Allard then proposed and Cr. N Stranks seconded- That a letter of condolence be sent to the widow and family of the late officer, which was also carried. After deciding that the Mayor and councillors forward a wreath to be placed on the coffin, and and that the councils employees should be granted permission to attend the funeral, at the Melbourne General Cemetery on Wednesday afternoon, the council adjourned until Monday, July 7th. The funeral on Wednesday was attended by a large number of people, as, well as the .Brunswick; Essendon, and Flemington Councils. The service at the Presbyterian Church was conducted: by the Rev T. Tait.

MEMORIAL WINDOW. The Presbyterian Church, Brunswick, has been enriched by a handsome me memorial stained glass window, presented by Mr. Evander McIver. It is in three bays at the rear of the rostrum, the side bays in trefoils of pleasing floral designs, and the centre bay a three 3 light lancet window bearing the following inscription : “In Sacred Memory of Mary Louisa Buzaglo, the beloved wife of Evander McIver a dutiful daughter, an affectionate sister, a faithful friend, a devoted mother, a loving wife, a consistent Christian. Died 1st October, 1887.”The subjects illustrated are from the Life of Christ, the part above the inscription bearing the representation of The Lord's Supper and extending over the three lights. The upper part of the central light represents Christ before Pilate, "Behold the Man I" and the side light with the subject, "Naked, and You Clothed Me," and Mary anointing Jesus Feet. Each of these subjects are surmounted by a very rich antique canopy elaborately designed. The columns are rich blending and harmonizing with nice effect. The work has been executed by the well known firm of Messrs. Ferguson and Urie, and as a specimen of ecclesiastical art it is highly creditable. A new feature in this window is that it can be illuminated by gas at night, this having been effected by Messrs. Danks and Son, of Bourke street.
