Mr. Friedrich Wilhelm Paech.
Mr. Friedrich Wilhelm Paech, one of the
members for the District of Wooroora in
the House of Assembly, died on Tuesday
morning at the North Adelaide private
hospital. The deceased legislator, who
had been in failing health for seve
ral months, was early in the re
cent session granted leave of absence
from his legislative duties on the grounds
of ill-health. Mr. Paech was born near
Hahndorf, on October 3, 1861, and was edu-
cated at Hahndorf College. He lost his
parents at an early age, and went to live
on his uncle's farm at Ravenswood, near
Balhannah. Some years later he started
farming on his own account. He was
elected a member of the District Council of
Echunga at the age of 22 years, and was
Councillor for nine years, during the last
seven of which he was Chairman. He
then retired, and declined a requisition,
signed by a majority of the electors, to
stand again. He was appointed a justice
of the peace by Dr. Cockburn's Govern-
went while he was still very young. He
always exhibited an interest in political
matters, and contested an election at
Mount Barker in 1893, but was defeated by
Dr. Cockburn, He was not daunted, how
ever, and in 1894 he unsuccessfully sought
the suffrage of the electors in the District
of Light. He was defeated by Mr. D. J
Moody, but entered the House of Assembly
as one of the members for that constitu-
ency in 1899. At the last general elec
tions he was returned as one of the mem-
bers for Wooroora, the District of Light
having been merged into that division.
For several years he acted as auditor for
the District Council of Neales, and was an
energetic supporter of country institutes.
He was largely responsible for the opening
of five first-class institutes in various places.
He was in the front rank as a rifle shot.
He took an active interest in the promotion
of the agricultural industry, and was Pre
sident of the Eudunda Agricultural So
ciety. All public matters affecting that
town and the district which he represen
ted so faithfully were ever in his thoughts.
Mr. Paech was one of the most popular
members of the Legislature, and was re
cognised as a loyal party man and a gene
rous and courageous opponent.
The remains of the late Mr. F. W.
Paech, M.P., were conveyed to Eudunda
liy the Morgan train on Wednesday. All
the Ministers excepting the Minister for
(Water Supply (Hon. J. G. Bice) were pre
sent at the station, and saw the coffin
placed on the van. The Premier (Hon. T.
Price), on behalf of the Government, con-
soled with the widow and a brother of
the deceased, who were accompanying the
remains to Eudunda. The Speaker of the
House of Assembly (Sir Jenkin Coles), with
the Clerk of the House (Mr. J. C. Mor-
phett), also went on to Euduuda to ba pre
sent at the funeral of his late colleague,
and Mr. David James, the other represen
tative of Wooroora, joined the train at
Kapunda. Our Eudunda correspondent
