Captain Albert Wentworth Randell.
who died on October 3 last at Miss
Laurence's private hospital in Ade-
laide, was a well known river iden-
tity. Born at Gumeracha 51 years
ago, he was the fourth son of the
late Captain W. R. Randell, the hon-
oured pioneer of steamship navigation
on the Murray. Captain Albert Ran-
dell spent nearly all of his life on
the river and was an acknowledged
authority on its navigation. For a
period of five years he acted as chief
engineer and watermaster of the Ren-
mark Irrigation Trust, and latterly
his activities were divided between
"life on the land" and the river. Not
long since Captain Randell purchased
the s.s. Tyro, and with this vessel
he commenced cargo carrying opera-
tions. During his career he com-
manded many steamers. For about
about eighteen months before his
death Captain Bandell had been in
indifferent health, but he was only
in hospital a fortnight before the end
came. At the time of his death he
was in command of the s.s. Federal
for the Irrigation Commission and was
running the boat between Berri and
Cobdogla. Captain Randell was a
man of artistic temperament and like-
able disposition. He was thrice mar-
ried. His widow, formerly Miss Em-
ma Agnes Stoeckel, is a daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. W. Stoeckel of Paringa
House. His second wife was a daugh-
ter of Mr. C. A. Preiss of Devon
Downs. Mannum. Three sons of a
former marriage were at one time
resident in Renmark, and one of them,
"Cos," was killed during the Great
War. There are four sisters of Cap-
tain Randell and two brothers, well
known on the lower river, living.
