DISTRICT CHIEF HEWINS.
     District Chief J. Foster Hewins of the Boston Fire Department died at his residence at Dorchester Sunday morning.
     District Chief Hewins was born in Dorchester, Apr. 5, 1838, and received his early education in the schools of that district.  After leaving schools he was employed in the grocery business and conducted business for himself for a few years.  In 1865 he was appointed Inspector in the Water Department, a position which he held for several years.
     He first performed fire duty when but 17 years of age as a member of the volunteer company attached to Torrent Engine 3.
     He enlisted in 1862 as a sergeant in Company I, Forty-second Massachusetts Volunteers, and after serving nine months was taken prisoner at Galveston, Jan. 1, 1863.
     On his return to his native place he organized a fire company of which he was made captain, and which did service until the annexation of Dorchester to Boston in 1870, when he was appointed Captain of Torrent Engine Company 18 on Harvard Street, Dorchester.  Upon the reorganization of the Fire Department, April 7, 1874, he was promoted to the rank of District Chief, which position he held at the time of his death.

     Hiram George Fancher died suddenly Sunday afternoon at his home, 238 Pleasant Street, Watertown.  He was apparently as well as ever in the afternoon, when suddenly he felt a severe pain at the base of his brain and complained to his wife.  She hastily dispatched a messenger for medical aid, and tried to soothe the pain, but in less than 20 minutes Mr. Fancher was dead.  Dr. Mead said the breaking of a blood vessel was the cause of death.  Mr. Fancher was born in Essex, N.
