Details: The sudden death of Alexander Watt, of the Grand Hotel, which occurred at 6.15 last evening, will be learned, with sincere regret throughout the Newcastle district. The deceased gentleman attended the Victoria Theatre on Monday night, and upon reaching the hotel complained of a. soreness in the throat, but on the following morning he went for his usual bathe in the breakers, and returned apparently, in the best of health. Later in the day. however, he again complained of sore throat, which began to swell, and in due course, acting on advice he went to bed. Dr. Harris was called in early the same evening, and he ordered Mr. Watt s immediate removal to the hospital, where an operation was performed at an early hour on Wednesday morning, the trouble having been diagnosed as oedema of the glottis. The operation was regarded as being a very successful one, and the patient rallied well. Later in the evening, how ever, pneumonia suddenly supervened, and the end came shortly after six oclock. The deceased gentleman was a native of the North of Ireland, where he was born on May 10th, 1839. He came to Australia with his parents when only three years of age, and resided with them for many years in West Maitland. where they settled down. As he grew into manhood Mr. Watt, who had served his apprentice ship as a carpenter and joiner, came to Newcastle, and worked at his trade until he took over the license of tie Albion Hotel, in Watt-street, from his brother. Mr. Robert C. Watt. Upon leaving the Albion, Mr. Watt took over the license of the Criterion Hotel, and subsequently became licenses of the Great Northern Hotel. Mr. Watt spent nearly forty years in Newcastle, and during that time he enjoyed the respect and esteem of all classes. not only in the city, but in all the country centres. He was liberal and tolerant in his opinions, and kind-hearted and generous. Up to the day he took ill he was an exceedingly active man, whose cheerful disposition made him a general favourite. He was one of the first members of the Newcastle Bowling Club, and it is safe to say that no more popular man than he ever stepped upon the green, For many years he took an active part in the affairs of the Newcastle Jockey Club, and as a member of the committee of that, body, did excellent work.
