The death of Mr. William Noall, a veteran sharebroker, and at one time chairman of the Melbourne Stock Exchange, took place at his residence, "Duhallow,'' St. Kilda road, on Wednesday night. The deceased gentleman was the father of Mr. A. J. Noall, who is the present Stock Exchange chairman. In referring to the sad event yesterday, the acting chairman, Mr. W. J. Roberts, said that another link in the chain connecting the Stock Exchange of the "seventies" and the "eighties" had disappeared. Mr Noall was one of the 23 members of the old Melbourne Stock Exchange who amalgamated with the present association in 1885, of whom only four remained. In 1886 Mr. Noall was elected on the committee, and two years later he was appointed chairman. He resigned from the committee in 1890, but was again re-elected in 1895 to the chairmanship. At this period his health broke down. In 1896 Mr. Noall resigned. He had been one of the best chairman known. This was the only instance in the history of the Exchange where a father and son had occupied the position of chairman. Mr. Noall was highly esteemed by all with whom he had come in contact. On behalf of the members he conveyed their sympathy to the family. The meeting then adjourned as a mark of respect to the memory of the deceased member.
