OBITUARY. A large circle of friends in Melbourne; and the country will regret to learn of the death of Mr. Thomas Fairbairn, which occurred in London on Tuesday, February 12. The cable message announcing Mr. Fairbairn's death reached his brother Senator Fairbairn, early this week. It did not give particulars, but it has been known among the relatives that he had been in failing health for some time. When in Victoria Mr. Fairbairn lived at Meltham, near Geelong; and at the time of his death was only 57 years of age. His only son, Mr. Eric Fairbairn, was killed in France at the commencement of the war. Mr. Fairbairn's brothers are Senator Fairbairn, Mr. F. W. Fairbairn, Mr. Charles Fairbairn, and Mr. Steve Fairbairn, all of whom live in Victoria, with the exception of Mr. Steve Fairbairn, who, like his late brother, has made his home in England for many years.
