On Ancestry.com, in the Historical Newspapers, Birth, Marriage, & Death Announcements, 1851-2003, I found the death notice in The New York Times in both the January 2 and January 3 issues.

Record for William Scott Pyle, The New York Times, 3 January 1906
On Chronicling America (Historic American Newspapers) (a free website), I found a death notice in the the January 2, 1906, New York Tribune. (Note the error in his age: he wasn't fifty years old; he was in his fiftieth year of age.)

At Old Fulton NY Postcards website (another free website), I found an obituary from the New York Herald, which gives a bit more information about his family.

On GenealogyBank.com, I found a death notice in the January 23, 1906, Anaconda Standard of Anaconda, Montana. Amazing that it took three weeks for this news to get from New York City to Montana. Not important enough to send this news by wire, I guess.

This last obituary indicates that my great grandfather, James T. Pyle, is now the sole manager of the James Pyle & Sons business.
