    THE TIMES: Mr John Scott, C.B., of Halkshill, Largs, Ayrshire, senior partner of the firm of Messrs. Scott and Co., shipbuilders and engineers, Greenock, died yesterday morning at his Ayrshire seat, in his 73rd year. Mr Scott, who was the eldest son of the late Mr Charles Cunningham Scott, of Hawkhill, Ayrshire, was educated at Edinburgh Academy and Glasgow University, and in 1851, when only 21 years of age, became a partner in the firm of Messrs. Scott and Co., which for many years now has been well known as the builders of warships and important mail and mercantile steamships. In 1850, at the inauguration of the Volunteer movement, Mr Scott raised two batteries of Artillery Volunteers, afterwards incorporated in the Renfrew and Dumbarton Artillery, which he commanded from 1863 to 1892, and of which he was honorary colonel at the time of his death. He received in 1897 the Companionship of the Bath for his services to the Volunteer force. A Conservative in politics, Mr Scott contested Greenock in that interest at the general elections of 1880 and 1885, and at a by-election in 1884, when Sir Thomas Sutherland was first returned for the burgh. Mr Scott married, in 1864, Annie, eldest daughter of the late Mr Robert Spalding, of Kingston, Jamaica.
