Daniel Sutherland Hutton (1863–1924)

Daniel Hutton, n.d.

Daniel Hutton, n.d.

Mr. D. McNeill, a councillor of the Miners' Federation, and secretary to the combined committee of the West Wallsend group of lodges, stated yesterday that at a meeting held on February 26 he had been instructed to forward the widow of the late Mr. D. [Daniel] Hutton a letter expressing regret and sympathy with her in the bereavement she had suffered. The letter stated: "While we regret your sad loss, we also recognise that we have lost a faithful comrade and true fighter against tyranny and oppression. Your late husband had always been in the vanguard of Progress, and his death will be a distinct loss to the working-class movement. He will be sadly missed by the men who take an active part in the fight for emancipation." Speaking of the late Mr. Hutton, Councillor McNeill said that for over forty years the former had been associated with the coalmining industry in England, Scotland, Canada, America and Australia. After working for some years in this country, Mr. Hutton went back to the United States, returning to Newcastle twenty years ago. Since then he had resided continuously in the district. It was in appreciation of his sterling qualities and the important part he played in the organisation that the combined lodges had decided to forward to the widow their expression of appreciation.
