The death occurred in Melbourne on Sunday last of Mr. Henry Lane Wilkinson, second son of the late Judge Wilkinson, of Sydney, at the age of 67 years.

A native of Sydney, Mr. Wilkinson was educated at Sydney Grammar School, and later at Sydney University, where he graduated B.A. He was articled to Messrs. Want, Johnson, and Want, and later practised the profession of solicitor at Croydon, North Queensland, and at Broken Hill and Deniliquin. He retired from practice about five years age.
