Death of Mr. W. Tunks. We regret to have to report that Mr. Wm. Tunks, of St. Leonards, died yesterday morning, after a long and painful illness. Mr. Tunks was born in the Nepean River District in the year 1816. In early life he was apprenticed to Mr. James Byrne, of Parramatta, to learn the trade of a carpenter and joiner. This occupation he does not seem to have followed long, as after his marriage he kept an hotel at the corner of Park and Castlereagh streets. In addition to this business, he commenced contracting, an occupation he followed with great success. Amongst the larger undertakings he had in hand were the supply of blue metal from the Pennant Hills quarry to the Sydney Municipal council, and the erection of a number of lines of telegraph in various parts of the interior. One of his contracts of the later class was establishing telegraphic communication with Albury, and thence with Melbourne. In 1864 Mr Tunks was returned as a member for St. Leonards, and continued to represent that constituency until 1874, when he retired. Mr. J.S. Farnell being his successor. While Mr. Tunks was not a leading spirit in the deliberations of the house, he was a useful conscientious legislator, who devoted much of his time and attention to his Parliamentary duties. Hisa most successful labours however were of a local nature and confined mainly to the district of St. Leonards and North Shore. He was the means of having St Leonards incorporated and became the first Mayor of the Borough. So much were his good offices appreciated that he was re-elected to the same office no fewer than 15 times. The improvements in the public reserve at St Leonards, the general cemetery at North Shore, the baths at Lavender Bay, and other works of public utility in the district testify to his ability and foresight as an administrator of local affairs. Mr. Tunks was the founder of the St. Leonards School of Arts and chairman of the district school board, North Shore. During his busy life he filled other offices of trust and responsibility with credit to himself and benefit to the matter with which he was associated. In his younger days Mr. Tunks made a considerable figure as a cricketer and represented his colony in the earliest matches with Victoria; his contemporaries being Clarkson, Rowley, Still, Mount, and Richard Driver. Mr. Tunks has been in failing health for some time, and an attack of paralysis, which occurred a short time ago left little hope of his recovery.
