We have to record the death of Miss Alice M. Stephen, daughter of the late Sir Alfred Stephen and sister to Mr. Justice M. H. Stephen, which event took place at her residence, 55 Macleay Street, Potts Point, on the 13th instant. The late Miss Stephen had a large circle of friends, and was well known for her efforts on behalf of the charitable institutions of the city. Upon the death of Lady Stephen the late Miss Alice Stephen assisted her father greatly in his labours, more especially in connection with the charities. The deceased lady had been in failing health for some time, and was attended by Dr. Scot Skirving. The funeral took place on Sunday morning at St. Jude's Cemetery, Randwick. The remains were placed in a cedar casket, which was covered with wreaths, and laid in the family grave. The service was read by the Rev T. J. Heffernan. Amongst those who attended were Mr. Justice Stephen, Mr. Cecil Stephen, Mr. W. W. Stephen, and Mr. E. Stephen (brothers), Mr. A. Consett Stephen, Mr. Colin C. Stephen, and Mr. Leonard Stephen (nephews), Mr. A. P. Bedford and Mr. A. M. Severn (brothers-in-law), Mr. T. H. Smith, M.L.C., Mr. E. W. Knox, and Dr. Scot Skirving.
