OBITUARY
COL. J. P. McMILLAN
Col. J. P. McMillan, a veteran of the Fenian Raids of 1866-70, died at the Hotel Dieu Hospital at Kingston last Thursday, in his 81st year. He practised law at Guelph, many years ago and was county attorney at Orangeville, Ont., for some time. When unrestricted reciprocity was a leading issue, Col. McMillan covered the province with the late Erastus Wiman, in advocating the step. He, it was who read the address presented by the municipalities to Lord Dufferin, on his departure from Canada, after completing his term as governor-general. He is survived by two sons and one daughter, N.A. McMillan, of North Bay; Jas. McMillan, of Ottawa, and Miss Minnie McMillan, Glen Nevis. James married Miss Lamb, daughter of the late Patrick Lamb, Acton, and resided here for some time. Col. McMillan was a warm personal friend of the late Col. Wm. Allan, Acton.
