    The funeral of the late Mr. Michael Wallace, a well-known miner nnd prospector, who died suddenly at Launceston on Thursday evening, took place on Saturday at the Carr Villa Cemetery. At the graveside were several with whom deceased was associated on the mining fields, particularly at Mount Victoria. A native of Westbury, where he was born 75 years ago, the late Mr. Wallace at an early age was engaged in mining on the West Coast, and for some years was employed at the Mount Lyell mines. On the death of his parents he returned to Westbury, and took over the farming property, which he later disposed of and returned to mining. Most of his time was then spent on the Mount Victoria goldfield, with the exception of a short while at the Adams field osmiridium rush. He always had great faith in the Mount Victoria field, and opened up one or two gold shows, but success did not attend his efforts. Deceased is survived by his wife. There is no family.
