Stow, Francis Leslie (1870–1935)

Dr. Francis Leslie Stow, late Commissioner of Titles and formerly Crown Solicitor for Western Australia, died last night at a private hospital, in Perth, at the age of 65 years. He had been in indifferent health for some time.

The late Dr. Stow was born in South Australia, and studied law at the Adelaide University, where he took the degrees of LL.B., and LL.D. He came to this State in 1903, and for some years was in private practice in Collie and Perth. In 1910 he was appointed Assistant Parliamentary Draftsman and in the following year he became, in addition, Crown Solicitor. He served in these capacities until 1926, when he was made Commissioner and Registrar of' Titles and Deeds, although he still retained the position of Assistant Parliamentary Draftsman. He retired from the service at the end of last year after the expiration of six months' long service leave.

The late Dr. Stow, who resided at Riley-road, Claremont, leaves a widow, two daughters and two sons. The funeral will take place tomorrow afternoon.
