Former Dartmouthian Dead
The North Sydney Herld has the following:-
"Another of North Sydney's oldest and most respected citizens has passed away in the person of Daniel LAWLOR, of the firm D. Lawlor & Son, merchant tailors. The deceased had been ill for some time and his death was not unexpected. Mr. LAWLOR had been a prominent figure in business and social life of this town for more than half a century, and he will be much missed in the community. He was active as a temperance man, being a member of the order of the Sons of Temperance from its organization in Cape Breton more than fifty years ago. He was always a foremost member of Royal Albert lodge A.F. & A. Masons. In both these societies he held the confidence and esteem of his associates in a noteworthy degree during his long connection with these bodies. The deceased was a man of kindly heart, a warm friend, a good citizen and an affectionate father and husband. In every relation of life he was the same true man. Born at Cole Harbor, Halifax county, he came to Cape Breton when a young man in 1848. He lived for a time at Sydney Mines, but took up his residence two years later at North Sydney, and he had been a leading citizen ever since. The deceased was a brother of the late Henry M. LAWLOR, was associated with his father son, T.J. LAWLOR, [who] some years ago went to Manitoba, in the western section of which province he is one of the leading merchants. His second son, M.W. LAWLOR, was associated with his father in business."

Dartmouth News - The many friends of Andrew LAWLOR will regret to learn of the death of his wife which took place this morning shortly after midnight. Her death was sudden and unexpected. She had been confined for some time but there was not the slightest comprehension of danger. Last evening she was visited by her sister. While in conversation Mrs. LAWLOR took a weak turn and went off in a faint. Medical assistance was quickly summoned, but ere the doctor had arrived the spirit had departed from the body and was winging its flight with the old year to the regions above. The deceased was a young woman and her early demise will be learned with much sorrow. Mr. LAWLOR has the heartfelt sympathy of the community in his bereavement.

The Proprietor of the Lorne Passes Away
John LOMAS' Unexpected Death Casts a Gloom Over the Popular Morris Street Hotel
There passed away at half-past four o'clock this morning, at the Lorne House, of which for twenty years he has been the proprietor, John LOMAS, one of the best known men in Halifax.
The sad news will be received with great surprise and genuine regret. An air of gloom pervaded the Lorne House this morning, for the genial host was heartily liked by all the guests, and his death after a week's illness was a real shock to them.
In June last Mr. LOMAS fell ill, and about eight weeks ago he underwent the amputation of one of his legs. The result was in a high degree satisfactory and he had apparently made a complete recovery, when, one week ago, he contracted a heavy cold. Pneumonia subsequently developed, but a fatal termination was not dreamed of until yesterday, when an ominous change in his condition made it impossible to encourage any hope of his recovery.
He passed away in the early morning in the house which under his admirable management has become one of the most popular private hotels in the whole province.
John Stakesby LOMAS was an Englishman. On November 23, 1836, he was born in Derby, England. At the age of 17 years in the midst of stirring times, he enlisted in the British army and was subsequently ordered with his regiment - the sixty-second - to the Crimea, where he gallantly defended the flag through a memorable, a glorious campaign.
At the close of the war his regiment was ordered to Halifax. Here he purchased his discharge from the army, and was successively thereafter in the employ of Lord MULGRAVE, the officer commanding; Sir Brenton HALIBURTON and Mr. Enos COLLINS, as butler.
Subsequently he became steward at the Halifax hotel and still later visited the United States.
In 1887 he returned to Halifax and purchased the property now known as the Lorne House, which he has since continuously conducted.
He married in 1859 Ellen, daughter of William HAZLETT, of England, who died in 1892, at the age of 55 years.
Four children of this marriage survive - George A., baggage master on the Intercolonial railway; Emma (Mrs. CAMERON), living in Winnipeg; Laura, wife of Rufus ZWICKER, chief engineer on the government steamer Tyrian, and John W., unmarried and living at home.
Mr. LOMAS' second wife, who survives him, was Jessie, daughter of Charles WHYTE, of Turiff, Scotland. There was one child of this union - Isabel May - who also survives her father.
Mr. LOMAS' death removes a sterling man. Sympathy will be widely felt for his wife and family.
He was an active Mason and a member of St. Mark's Lodge. Every one of his fellow members will feel his loss as a personal sorrow. "LOMAS", said one this morning, "was a good fellow." He was in politics a staunch conservative. He was a member of St. Luke's, whence his funeral will take place at half-past three o'clock on Wednesday to Camp Hill cemetery, Dean CRAWFORD officiating.

Herring Cove Fisherman Loses His Life in the Snow Storm of Saturday Night
William MANN, of Herring Cove, was drowned on Saturday night almost within sight of his home. MANN had been in Halifax on Saturday and set out to return in the afternoon. He did not reach home, and in the morning parties found his boat on the rocks broken up. Further search discovered the body. The boat had capsized, probably by a squall, or MANN lost his way in the blinding snow that was falling heavily, driven by a high wind, and his boat struck and he perished within a few rods of his home.
The Evening Mail, Tuesday, 15 January 1907, p. 3:
Great difficulty was experienced by the residents of Herring Cove in recovering the remains of William MANN, who was drowned Saturday night within sight of his home by the capsizing of his boat. The body was discovered at ten o'clock Sunday morning, a few yards from the shore. As this part of the shore where the body was located was very rocky, it was impossible to launch boats, as they would have been dashed to pieces. As the sea was rough the body was carried right upon the beach, but before the men could reach it another sea would come up and carry it out again. Grappling hooks were attached to long pieces of wood and these were floated out and at three o'clock in the afternoon they finally succeeded in recovering the body.
