Sullivan, who died yesterday at the comparatively early ape of 55, was a well-known figure in Dunedin, he having been connected with the fishing industry for a number of years. Mr Sullivan had been ailing for some- months, but would not consent to lay up unless compelled, a? ho was for short periods. The actual causo of his illness appears to have puzzled the doctors, and it had been arranged thaUan operation should be performed on Monday last. This, however, was postponed, and Mr Sullivan took a bad turn while attending the Police Court in connection with a case in vdiich he was interested on that day. From this attack ho nover rallied. The deceased was a keen business man, but there aro many who speak feelingly of kindly actions unobtrusively performed by him. He leaves a widow, a daughter who is married to Mr Blowers, of the Taiori, and an adopted son.
