Hosking, who died at Burwood on Saturday, aged 70, was until the last few months a resident of Wollongong, where he had lived for upwards of 60 years, during the greater part of which time he carried on business as a chemist and druggist. He took an active part in all public matters, filled the office of Mayor, and was alderman for several years. He look great interest in the agricultural association, of which he was vice-president for a number of years. He was also a prominent member of the local Masonic lodge, and had filled the higher offices. His remains were taken to Wollongong yesterday by train, and conveyed to St. Michael's Church, of which he was church-warden for many years. The interment took place yesterday afternoon in the Church of England Cemetery, the funeral procession including members of the Masonic lodge in regalia.
