from Daily Telegraph (Sydney)

The Minister of Lands has received a cablegram announcing the unexpected death of his sister-in-law, Lady [Martha Coates] Lyne. Deceased, who was 58 years of age, was born on the East Coast, Tasmania, and was a daughter of the late Mr Edward Carr Shaw. The cause of death was erysipelas. The deceased lady had only been ill a few days.

SYDNEY, Tuesday— Lady Lyne, wife of the Minister for Home Affairs, died to-day at the residence of her daughter, Mrs McCausland, at Cremorne. Death was due to septic pneumonia, which supervened on an attack of bronchitis contracted a week ago. The family has received many messages of sympathy.
