  202 The Halifax Herald.Sept. 11th, 1907 THOMAS J. WALLACE HAS PASSED AWAY- One of the oldest Barristers of Nova Scotia dies after a long and active life..reminiscence of an interesting episode in which Mr. Wallace came out best on appeal to the Privy Council of England, the result of which came as a surprise to our court. A large circle of friends and acquaintances will greatly regret to learn of the death of Thomas James Wallace, one of the oldest and best known barristers in the province, which even took place at his residence 90 Birminghan St. after a short illness. Born in Chatham, N.B eighty years ago two years after the great fire of 1825 of Irish parents, subsequently the family removed to Halifax. After completing his general education the son, Thomas, studied law in the office of Joseph Whidden at that time one of the prominent barristers of the city, and was admitted to the bar with the late Hon Thomas Weeks, J.G. Tobin and others . For many years Mr. Wallace carried on a lucrative law business in partnership with the late J.G. Tobin, and later with Martin J. Griffin, C.M.G., the brilliant editor of the Halifax Herald for some years pervious to 1878, and now parliamentary librarian, Ottawa. Mr. Wallace was a keen lawyer, and a man of great deal of independence as well as force of character a fighter. In the course of his practice in the supreme-court, he incurred the displeasure of the late Chief Justice Sir William Young. Defiantly refusing to apologize to the judges, hew finally disrobed for contempt of court. There was no supreme court of Canada in those days , and Mr. Wallace took his case directly to the judicial committee of the privy council which promptly reversed the action of the supreme court of Nova Scotia. The news of the action of the supreme court of the empire was received by Mr. Wallace long before the official notice was received by the Nova Scotia judges. The first intimation the later had of the great victory won by the disbarred counsel was when Mr. Wallace appeared in court to make a motion which Sir William Young was compelled to hear, greatly to his chagrin and humiliation. Mr. Wallace was the first lawyer in Canada to make an appeal direct to the privy council of the empire . The surviving widow Mrs.Henora Wallace was a daughter of the late John Quain of St. Andrews, N.B., son Dr. Thomas A. Wallace, residing in New York , and daughters , Mary (Jane ) (who was one of the first women to enter the newspaper field, she became social editor of the Acadian Recorder for a number of years. Later she joined the staff of The Halifax Mail and wrote her own column under the heading of "Joan's Letters". ") and Sara residing at home, will have the sincere sympathy of a very large circle of friends in their bereavement.
