Charles James Chalmers (1844–1907)

Mr. C. J. [Charles James] Chambers, inspector of the Hobart Fruit Board, died suddenly to day. Deceased had been conducting cases at the Police Court under the Codling Moth Act, and had returned to his home, when he complained to his brother of having indigestion. He said, "I had a nasty turn this morning, and I don't know how I got through the police cases." He then staggered and fell, and when his brother picked him up he was found to be dead. Deceased had been subject to heart disease for years. He was the second son of Captain F. E. Chalmers, of Bagdad, and was 63 years of age.
