An old Parramatta identity, Mr. Arthur McManis, died at his residence, Western-road, on Saturday, in his 81st year. Mr. McManis was a son of the famous waggon builder, Arthur McManis, whose place of business was in Hunter street. He built the waggons that carried on all the trade in the early days right into the far north, west and south of the colony. In those days Arthur McManis worked with his father, as also did the late Joseph Booth. When McManis, sen., died the business was for many years carried on by Booth and McManis. After retiring from that business Mr. McManis held the position of council clerk for the municipality of Prospect and Sherwood for many years. He was a staunch member of the Parramatta Wesleyan Church. His wife pre-deceased him several years. The remains were interred on Sunday in the Western-road Cemetery, the Rev. T. B. Holmes performing the last rites of the church. He leaves a family of seven—Messrs. Arthur McManis (Cairns), Lance (on the Queensland railways), Mrs. G. T. Erby, Mrs.W. F. H. Neich, Miss Marian McManis, Mrs. Robert Watsford and Mrs. E. White.
