London; Jan. 29.—~The Rev. Hugh Reginald
Haweis, incumbent of St. James's, Marylebone,
who was Anglican delegate in the Parliament
of Religions, at Chicago, 1893, and lectured and
preached in all parts of the world, died sud-
denly this afternoon. He preached twice on the
subject of Queen Victoria on Sunday, was

stricken with illness on Monday, became un-
consclous and remained so throughout the day.

Hugh Reginald Haweis was born at Egham,
Surrey, on April 3. 1838. His father was the Rev.
J. O. W. Haweis, Canon and Prebendary of Chiches-
ter Cathedral. He received his education at Trinity
College, Cambridge, being graduated in 1859. Taking
orders in the English Church he'was appointed
curate of St. ‘Peter’s, Bethnal' Green. In 1866 he
became incumbent of St. James's, Marylebone. He
was at that time the youngest incumbent in Lon-
don, and the prospect before him in his new church
was none too, pleasant. The congregation was in-
significant and the church building was dilapidated.
Owing to his indefatigable labors both as a smash
er and a man or business. his church became one
of the most crowded in London.‘ ' -

He took great interest in“tlie’I‘talian revolution
under Garibaldi, and was present at the siege of
Capua, where he had several narrow escapes. All
his life Mr. Haweis was a contributor to the news—
papers and magazines, and among his writings for
periodical publication were accounts of his experi-
ences in Italy and memoirs of Garibaldi. He was
always interested in providing open air spaces for
the people and had much to do with the planting out
of disused London churchyards and waste spaces.
He was also a strong advocate of the opening of
museums and galleries on Sundays. He was an
amateur violinist of remarkable ability, having
been, when a lad, a pupil of Oury, himself an old
pupil of Paganini.

Mr. Haweis was said to be the greatest clerical
' traveller of the nineteenth century. Between 1885,
when he was appointed Lowell lecturer at Boston,
and university preacher at Cornell and Harvard,
i and 1895, he covered no fewer than one hundred
~ thousand miles outside Europe; while notes of his
travels in Italy, France, Germany, Morocco and
other countries would alone fill several books, and

are not even touched upon in his two amusing vol-
umes, “My Hundred Thousand Miles.” At the time
of the Chicago Exposition he attended the Parlia-
ment of Religions, and afterward lectured in many
places in the United States on "Music and Morals."
In 1894 he lived in San Francisco forltwo months,
preaching in Trinity Church and drawmg enormous
congregations. He then visited the Hawaiian and
the Fiji islands. Australia. New—Zeaiand and Tas-
mania: In 1897 he was called to Rome for the. third
time to give his lectures on Mazzmi and Garibaldi.

He was the author of “Music and Morais.”_
“Thoughts for the Times,” “Speech‘in‘ Season,’
”Current Coin," “Arrows in the Air. ’ .‘American
Humorists," “Christ and Christianity" in five vol-
umes; “The Broad Church: or, What Is Coming?"
"Life of Sir Morel] Mackenzie" and several other
books. ' ,

He‘ married on his appomtment to St. James 5,
Marylebone, ary E. Joy, daughter of T. M. Joy,
the painter. Mrs. Haweis died in 1898.
