DART-DICKER
Another gay function of a matrimonial character was celebrated at Wynyard on Tuesday afternoon, the contracting parties being Mr William Dart, eldest son of the late Mr Wm. Dart, of Wynyard, and Miss Emma Dicker, eldest daughter of Mr. Jas. Dicker, also of Wynyard. The marriage was performed by the Rev. W. Hamilton, assisted by Mr. W. H. Pollard, in the Methodist Church. The church was very tastefully decorated for the auspicious event, and looked very nice. The bride wore a handsome fawn cashmere dress trimmed with white silk and gimp, with veil and orange blossoms, and looked exceedingly pretty. She was attended by the Misses Ada Dicker and Alice Dart, young sisters of the bride and bridegroom, as bridesmaids, the two latter wearing white hail spot muslin over pink zephyr, with short voile trimmed with flowers. They also looked very comely In their fairy-like costumes, Mr R. Dart acted as best man and the bride was given away by her father. The church was crowded during the ceremony, a large number being unable to obtain admission. After the ceremony a large number assembled at Mr Dicker's residence, where the usual wedding festivities were indulged in and breakfast partaken of. The customary wedding toasts were received with great applause, and honored with the heartiest wishes of all present. The wedding presents were very numerous, and embraced the useful with the beautiful. A large number of the presents were from South Australia, where the bride and her husband in their early years resided. The teachers and scholars of the Methodist Sunday school presented the bride with a handsome tall metal lamp and butter dish and sugar bowl as a mark of their love for one who has for many years been connected with the school as organist and teacher. Mr. and Mrs. Dart have gone to Launceston, where they intend to spend the honeymoon. As usual, rice, rose leaves, and flowers were scattered with prodigality upon the happy pair.

Chronicle, 12 November 1898 ~ DEATH
The Emu Bay (Tasmania) 'Times' in its issue of last week had the following letter, dated October 28, from its Wynyard correspondent:—
'Quite a gloom was cast over the township this morning when it became known that an accident, which terminated fatally, had befallen George Dicker. Deceased was engageed with his brother William scrubbing at Camp Creek. William was felling a myrtle tree, George was working about 20 to 30 yards away, and was warned of the falling tree and jumped behind another close by. It is supposed that he looked out to see where the tree was falling to and was struck on the head by it. Deceased never spoke and died an hour afterwards. Deceased who was only married about last Christmas, leaves a young wife, for whom heartfelt sympathy is expressed.' At the inquest the jury returned a verdict that deceased came to his death accidentally. The deceased was a son of Mr James Dicker, an old resident of Modbury, but now of Wynyard, and about 10 months ago he married Miss M. Dart, of Millbrook.
* 11 Nov 1898 - The sad accidental death of Mr. George J. Dicker cast quite a gloom over the whole district, as he was a very worthy young fellow, who had won the goodwill of everyone. He leaves a young wife to whom he was united on Boxing Day of last year only, to mourn her loss and his parents and relatives, who also reside here, to unite with her in their grievous affliction. Fully 400 persons assembled at the local cemetery to pay the last respects due to a worthy son, an affectionate husband and a popular resident.
Emu Bay Times, North West & West Coast Advocate. 28 Oct 1899 ~ IN MEMORIAM

1873 - 1965 Alfred John Dicker

born: 9 June 1873
married: ?
The Express and Telegraph, 8 Oct 1875 ~ ACCIDENT
A child, named Alfred Dickers, aged three years, had his right foot cut off and his left foot nearly so, by a mowing machine at Modbury on Thursday, October 7. The poor little fellow was admitted into the Adelaide Hospital

Mr Alfred Dicker, bootmaker, late of J. Duncan's, Orr street, announces that he has taken over Benjamin's business in Sticht street and invites old friends to give him a trial
Advocate, 31 August 1927 DEVONPORT BLAZE
PRACTICALLY ALL STOCK AFFECTED. The damage to the stock as a result of the fire at Messrs. Roe and Paul's yesterday morning proved a great deal more extensive than was at first thought. Mr. W. Whitfield, the insurance assessor, stated that he had not gone thoroughly into the damage, but he estimated it at roughly £4500. The stock was covered by £5400 with the Liverpool London and Globe Insurance Company. The fire, it is thought, originated as the result of a wooden plug in the brick wall igniting through being in close proximity to a fireplace in the premises of A. J. Dicker, bootmaker, next door. On examination, there were several plugs in the wall where tho fire started one of which was burned out. After burning through, the plug caught on to the rolls of material and shelving that was against the wall at this particular spot, when, after smouldering for sometime the cloth and other fabrics evidently burst into flames. The steel ceiling of the shop was severely scorched where the flames played round in a circle in an endeavor to find an outlet. At the opposite end the partitions at the back of the windows were scorched, and lines of cashmere hose and other inflammable articles hung on top of tho counters were burned to cinders, showing how the flames leaped round. Articles in practically all parts of the shop were destroyed and others damaged by water. The section where the conflagration started was where the most expensive goods were and very little was left untouched in the whole row of shelves on this side. After burning for a while a large skylight above the heart of the fire was broken open by the heat and this caused a current of air to enter which fanned the blaze making it increase in volume, and giving it a fair hold. It was at this stage that the fire brigade arrived. The draught caused by the opening of the door for the admittance of men with the hose further increased the blaze, but it was soon under control, and within an hour they were able to leave the premises. Had it been other than a calm night or had the alarm been given half an hour later there would have been little hope of saving the building, in fact, the shops adjoining would have been endangered. The firemen arrived on the scene promptly on receiving the alarm. Articles in the windows of the shop at tho top, where the flames reached, were damaged, while three plate glass windows facing Stewart street were cracked. On the floor above, the rooms occupied by Mr B. C. Wall, dentist, were not affected. It is a remarkable coincidence that this shop was the scene of a fire in January. The outbreak on that occasion occurred on the upper storey, in Mr. Wall's dentistry chambers, but considerable damage was done to the goods in the shop by water.
The Mercury, 25 July 1954
At the Court of Requests
Alfred J. Dicker, of Devonport, sued Aaron E. J. Cowburn, of Eugenana, for the recovery of 10/9 for a pair of slippers which it was stated were sold to the defendant. The plaintiff's case was that the slippers and shoes were purchased, and the latter were paid for by a daughter of the defendant, but the slippers were omitted from the bill by mistake, but an account was rendered later. The defendant denied making the purchase, and said he had not met the plaintiff till that day. On tho day when he was supposed to have been in the shop October 18 1922 he was working at the quarries. Evidence was tendered by the then secretary of the Broken Hill Proprietary Co. to show that Cowburn was working at the quarries on the day in question. The Commissioner said it was not clear that the right person was being sued, and he nonsuited the plaintiff.
