Mr. T. H. Ivey, who was for a number of years manager of the Bank of New South Wales, Sydney, died at his residence on the 2nd inst. after a short illness, aged 77 years.

After four years in that position he retired, in 1912. Mr. Ivey was well known and highly respected in business circles throughout Australia.
