LOCAL MINING MAN IS ON TITANIC'S DEATH LIST

LOCAL MINING MAN IS ON TITANIC'S DEATH LIST

San Francisco Bulletin

Colonel John Weir, a well known mining man of the Pacific Coast, was one of the victims of the Titanic horror. It has been learned by his friends that he took passage on the ill fated steamer on an unexpected trip to California, probably on urgent business connected with mining interests in this State. The Titanic passenger list shows the name of J. Weir, and he was not among the rescued.

Colonel Weir was very well known in San Francisco, where he lived many years. He was president of the Utah and Nevada Mining and Smelting Company at one time.
