Martin Clayton, Kingston's veteran ship carpenter, residing at 137 Bagot street, died on Friday afternoon, after an illness extending over eleven months. The late Mr. Clayton was born in Ireland, and came to Kingston when very young. When a youth he learned the trade of ship carpenter and was regarded as one of the best in Canada. He served his apprenticeship with John Counter. He worked at various places, going as far as Cleveland and Sandusky. Four or five years ago he built a tug at Farran's Point and two years ago constructed one at Cornwall.

Mr. Clayton was a liberal in politics, one of the real old-time liberals, who were party men because they believed in liberal principles. He was a warm-hearted Irishman, and a member of the Y.I.C.B.A. He was also a member of the Ship carpenter's Union.

Mr. Clayton is survived by his wife, one daughter, Miss May, at home, and two sons, Henry, in Montreal, and Frank in Chicago. The funeral is to take place to St. Mary's Cathedral on Sunday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock.
