Beveridge, Andrew Steele (1863–1907)

from Dubbo Dispatch and Wellington Independent (NSW)

We regret to have to chronicle the fatal termination of the illness of Mr. Andrew Steele Beveridge, of Mullah, in his 44th year.

Mr. Beveridge, who was the eldest son of Mr. James Beveridge of Gundagai, had been in Trangie district about 16 years. He was known as the owner of Mullah and Reddonville properties. He also for a time held Wombiana, but disposed of this to the Messrs. Austin some years ago.

Mr. Beveridge was a remarkably good station manager, and as a stock dealer was held in high repute, both for his judgment and his integrity. He operated largely, and in the main very successfully; and was a man of sterling business characteristics, whose decease will be a marked loss to the district.

He was broad-minded and devoted to the welfare of the district in which he had made his home, and commanded respect even among those who in important matters differed from him. He was a member of the Trangie Branch of the Farmers and Settlers' Association and a prominent exhibitor at and helper of its annual Carnival. Lately he had shown much interest in trotting with a view to its development in Trangie dietrict. In a word he was held in general esteem by all classes and strove to be worthy of the opinion entertained of him.

He leaves a widow and several children, most of them very young.
