Obituary. —In the death of Mr Thomas Sanderson, of Greta Peaks Station, which took place at Waikari on Friday, after a short illness, Canterbury suffers the loss of another of her most energotic colonists, as well as a gentleman who was in every sense disposed to take a broad view on general subjects connected with the country's welfare. Mr Sanderson arrived in 1851, and took up land on the Rakaia, afterwards joining Mr G. Brayshaw in 20,000 acres, near Oxford, and subsequently he bought into the Greta station, originally owned by Messrs Clifford and Weld. He leaves two sons and five daughters, one of whom is the wife of Mr J. C. Martin, Crown Prosecutor for the Canterbury district, from whose residence, at Fendalton, the funeral moves for the Riccarton Cemetery, reaching the place of interment at 3 p.m.
