The death occurred in Sydney on the 4th inst. of Mr. Alfred Lionel Manchee, a well-known figure in grazing circles throughout New South Wales and Queensland. He was born at Quirindi, N.S.W., 76 years ago.

Mr. Manchee was educated at The King's School, Parramatta, where he was prominent in many different branches of sport and was captain of the cricket team during his last year at school. He left school to manage Binneguy, Moree, N.S.W., for Manchee Bros., and later managed Glen Moan, near Willow Tree, for his father, the late Mr. J. C. Manchee. When his grandfather died in 1914 Glen Moan was sold and the partnership of A. P. and L. Manchee was formed. This partnership acquired Binneguy, and also bought Yamburgan (Queensland), Cashmere West (near St. George, Queensland), Retreat Station, Moree, and Ontario, near Bellata, N.S.W.

On the dissolution of the partnership in 1928, the late A. L. Manchee took over Yamburgan and Retreat. Well-known Merino, Poll Shorthorn, and thoroughbred studs were formed on Yamburgan, and this property has for some time been managed by his son, Mr. J. S. Manchee.

While at Binneguy the late Mr. Manchee was president of the Moree branch of the Pastoralists' Union of New South Wales, as the Graziers' Association of N.S.W. was then called. He also represented Moree branch on the Graziers' Association of New South Wales and was for many years on the P.P. Board at Moree. He was one of the founders of the Moree Club and for 16 years was president. He was also a member and vice-president of the Moree Picnic Race Club, and president of the Moree Polo Club in the early '20's.

Mr. Manchee married Miss Maude Stewart, a daughter of Alexander Stewart, of Millera, Tenterfield, N.S.W. He is survived by his widow and two of their three children—Mrs. Ross Arnott, of Collaroy, N.S.W., and John Stewart Manchee, of Yamburgan.
