Wesley United Church Cambridge
 
6011 Wesley United Church

Begun: 1854

The Galt Wesleyan Methodist church was established in 1854 with the arrival of the Rev. George Kennedy (1854-1855). A first church building was located on the north side of North Street not far from the corner of North and Ainslie Streets and next to the Primitive [Methodist] Church and Mission, as shown on Pollock's 1867 Map of Galt. In 1872 the Wesleyan Methodist congregation, known as Ainslie Street Methodist Church, purchased the former Knox Free Presbyterian church building at the northeast corner of Dickson and Ainslie Streets. At the Annual Meeting of the Wesleyan Methodist Church in June 1872, the "Galt Mission" was given "permission to sell the old church and apply the funds in aid of paying for the new one." Rev. John B. Clarkson was minister at the time.

After the union of the Wesleyan and New Connexion Methodists in 1874 the two congregations became one. The new united congregation also included Primitive Methodists whose church had closed c.1865. The former Knox Church building, which had been used for Methodist services, was sold to the Town in 1877 and was removed in 1879. Construction of the present Wesley Church was begun in 1879 and completed in early 1880. The congregation was given permission in 1878 at the Annual London Conference of the Methodist Church to sell "the church lot" and to apply the proceeds towards the building of the new church. At the 1880 Annual Conference permission was granted to sell the "late New Connexion property in Galt" and to apply the proceeds towards the new church. Rev. John V. Smith, who was appointed to Galt in 1875, was minister when the new church was built. New galleries were added in 1885; dedication services to mark reopening of the sanctuary for worship were held on February 14, 1886.

When the Methodist Church voted for union with the Congregationals and many Presbyterian congregations to form the United Church of Canada on June 10, 1925, the name of the church was changed to Wesley United Church. More space for a Sunday School was made in 1937 in the enlarged church basement; an addition for the chapel and the ladies' parlour was built at the same time.

6032 Maple Grove Wesleyan Methodist

Zion United Church

Begun: 1843

Wesleyan Methodist services began in 1843, with meetings held in Mr. Butler's barn and in a log schoolhouse located on the southwest corner of the intersection just south of the present-day church. The schoolhouse was destroyed by fire and in 1851 land for a church was donated by John Hilborn; the frame church was later bricked with white "Breslau Brick." The first minister was Rev. J. Willoughby. In 1954 work began on a foundation just a few feet north of the church to which the building was then moved. The white brick had been stripped off and sold prior to the move and was replaced by new red brick. Rededication services were held on June 26, 1955.

The congregation was on the Dumfries Circuit of the Wesleyan Methodist Church and the Rev. George Ferguson, who organized the Circuit, recorded the early meetings of the Zion congregation in his Journal. The Church was later on the Galt, Berlin, Preston and Hespeler Circuits. Nahrgang (c.1976) reports that during the years 1857 to 1874 Zion was served by the Revs. Hamilton Biggar, C.W. Gilbert,  Ozias Barber , Francis Berry, George Kennedy, Alexander Sutherland, and Luther Rice.

In his autobiography, Rev. Dr. Charles Freshman, the German Wesleyan Methodist missionary who served the Preston area from c.1860-1869, stated that he found a few English Methodist families in the district "who used to attend Zion Chapel, about three miles distant, on the Berlin Circuit, as they had no English preaching nearer" (Freshman 1868:211). Since joining the United Church of Canada on June 10, 1925, Zion has been served in charges with Bloomingdale, Freeport and, at the present time (1992), with St. Andrew's United Church in Cambridge (Preston).

Of interest: the dates on the cornerstone of the church are 1851 and 1954.

Records:
Baptism dates: unknown Location of records: unknown
Marriage dates: unknown Location of records: unknown
Burial dates: unknown Location of records: unknown

Location of early records is unknown, but it is believed that they have been lost. Session books at the church date from c.1900. Wesleyan Methodist Baptisms for Waterloo County c.1830-c.1874 are in an indexed card file at the Kitchener Public Library.

6052 At the time of the revolutionary war Robert and his brother, John, left their father s home in New Jersey and came to Canada, taking up land near Niagara. They were U. E. Loyalists. They lived down at Niagara for some years. Then Robert sold his farm, for which he got eight hundred silver dollars. Though Robert and John were brothers, they differed about how their name should be spelled. John spelled his name Kemp, and Robert spelled his Camp. The date when Robert sold out I cannot give, but however, he took his $800 and came to Beverly with his family and bought eight hundred acres here in front of the township. The family consisted of seven sons and two daughters. He settled on the north fifty of Lot 23, first concession, and also owned the south one hundred acres of Lot 23, second concession. These two lots were considered the homestead. He gave each of his sons 100 acres. David had the south 100 of Lot 20, second concession.

6054 DR. ALEXANDER D. CAMPBELL 1914 - 2008 Sandy was born in North Battleford, Saskatchewan in 1914 to Alexander Douglas Campbell and Marjorie Usher Corbett. He was raised on the grounds of the mental hospital in Weyburn, Saskatchewan, where his father was the superintendent. After graduating in medicine from the University of Toronto in 1939, he began to follow his father's footsteps in psychiatry. After a year or two, he decided it was not the specialty for him, and he began to pursue anesthesiology. He wanted to serve his country during the war, but a physical condition caused him to be turned down by the army and the air force. Finally, the navy accepted him and he spent the years until the end of 1943 in naval operating rooms in Halifax and Newfoundland. At that time, the navy offered to support him in furthering his specialty at Royal Victoria Hospital in Montreal, supplemented by time in half a dozen of the leading teaching hospitals in the U.S. over a two to three month tour. Years later, he continued to speak appreciatively of the opportunities he had been given. After the war, he chose to locate in Kitchener, and, with a partner, became the first specialists in anesthesiology at K-W and St. Mary's Hospitals. Along the way, Sandy was asked to help start a medical library at St. Mary's Hospital. This grew into a strong interest in the history of the local medical profession. Over many years, he read every issue of the local newspapers from the first days they were published, searching for any reference to doctors. He had to teach himself to read German in order to handle the earliest editions. The result was extensive files covering every doctor who had practised in the area. Some of this was captured in materials he summarized as biographical sketches of the physicians of Waterloo County from 1824 to 1924. He also regularly contributed to the Waterloo Historical Society's journal. After he retired from practice in 1984, a broader interest in the history of the profession was satisfied by his time as Chair of the Archives Committee of the Ontario Medical Association. Libraries never ceased to be an important part of Sandy's life. At one point during his retirement, the Kitchener Public Library pointed out that he had borrowed over 5,000 books in a ten-year period. Beloved husband of the late Mary Campbell (1997). Loving father of Sandy Campbell (Janet) of Winnipeg, John Campbell (Anne) of Kitchener, Robert Campbell of Vancouver, Hugh Campbell of Kitchener, Mary Ann Hons (Doug) of Peterborough, Kitty Uffelmann (David) of Waterloo and Jean Al (Bob Nessner) of Kitchener.

Predeceased by his brother, John and sister, Helen McLeod. Friends are invited to share their memories of Sandy with his family during visitation at the Erb & Good Family Funeral Home, 171 King St. S., Waterloo, today (Wednesday) from 7-9 p.m. A memorial service to celebrate Sandy's life will be held on Thursday, November 13, 2008 at 11 a.m. in the chapel of the funeral home.

For his work, Mr. Williams was banquetted and offered the mayoralty. But he was unable to accept the chair, because he had been appointed manager of the sugar factory. The next duty was to induce growers to plant 5,000 acres of beets. Local farmers played Scotch, agreeing to plant only from one to five acres, or what they could till without hiring outside help.

To prevent a shortage of beets from occurring, a number of townsmen formed acreage companies. It was even proposed that the town itself buy 200 acres of land near Bridgeport and grow sugar beets. Finally, without committing the municipality, the acreage was signed up. Dr. A. B. Campbell was one of the growers....1a

6079 DEATH OF MRS. McFEIGGAN.

DIED-In Galt, on Tuesday morning 21st inst, at 4.30 o'clock, Janet Campbell, relict of the late David McFeiggan, aged 77 years 11 months and 9 days. Mrs McFeiggan at the time of her death was perhaps the oldest resident in Galt. She was born in Selkirkshire, Scotland, in the year 1810, and came to this country with her father, the late Duke Campbell, in the year 1824. They settled in the township of North Dumfries, on the farm two and a half miles south of Galt, now occupied by her brother, Mr. James C. Campbell. The township was then almost an unbroken wilderness and she shared wither father and the rest of the family all the hardships peculiar to pioneer life at that time. Galt at that early period was a very small hamlet, indeed. The deceased was married in 1833 and she and her husband, the late David McFeiggan, took up their residence in Galt in the year 1836, where she has continued to reside ever since. She has seen the country changed from wilderness into fruitful fields, and the village of a few log houses into the most important town in Ontario.

6098 Former Chronicle editor Rick Campbell remembered

Rick Campbell a former beloved sports reporter, editor and publisher of the Waterloo Chronicle passed away on Oct. 14 at Toronto General Hospital.

A graduate of Wilfrid Laurier University, Campbell was considered "Mr. Waterloo" joining the Chronicle in the 1970s and helping solidify the Chronicle's place in the community. He developed a loyal following with his reporting, community outreach and his slice of life columns sharing his good humour and good nature with everybody in the city. His more than 20 year career at the Chronicle wrapped up in the mid-1990s after he was promoted to publisher of the paper.

Paul Winkler, who was President of the Fairway Group at the time and worked closely with Campbell, said he will always be remembered for his kindness.

"Rick had a quick and dry wit, lightening fast ability to write with clarity, and, extraordinary photographic skills. He was also a man of sincere kindness," said Winkler. "Several years ago, and long after working together, Rick attended a Rotary golf tournament I had organized in Niagara. There was a fundraiser silent auction during dinner. My then 11-year-old son was sitting at our table, wishing he could bid enough to get the signed Ottawa Senators print, his favourite team. He knew it would be impossible. Without our knowledge, Rick kept going back and forth to bid on that print, won it and when he returned to our table, he passed it over to Jake. That was classic Rick!"

In addition to being publisher of the Chronicle, Campbell was also publisher of Exchange Business Magazine and Visitor Magazine. Rick was honoured early in his career as Waterloo's Junior Citizen of the Year.

"The Chronicle grew exponentially during Rick's time due in large part to his talents and dedication," said Winkler.

Campbell went on to work at Rogers Publishing for publications like The Medical Post and Family Practice Magazine, moving to and working in Toronto. He was still a consulting editor in the health care field when he passed away peacefully surrounded by family.

A celebration of Campbell's life will be held today at Mississaugua Golf and Country Club 1 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations to Crohn's and Colitis Canada would greatly appreciated.

Rev. Robert Campbell
 
6100 Campbell, Rev. Robert, M.A.,D.D., Pastor of St. Gabriel Presbyterian Church, Montreal, was born on a farm near the town of Perth, Lanark county, Ontario, on the 21st June, 1835. Peter Campbell, father of the subject of this sketch, was born at Kein-a-Chullaig, Loch Tayside, Breadalbane, Perthshire, Scotland, and belonged to the Lochnell branch of the Campbell clan. One of his ancestors having taken part in the Jacobite rising in 1715, and thus having incurred the displeasure of Argyll, who was at the head of the Hanoverian forces, did not return to his native district, but placed himself under the protection of his other great kinsman, Breadalbane, who was neutral in that contest, and who assigned him the property called Keina-Chullaig.

Peter Campbell was a man of high character and intelligence. He had for a time been a teacher in Scotland, and this gave him much influence with his Highland countrymen who accompanied him to Canada in 1817, and settled in the Bathurst district. He brought some money with him to Canada, and owned the first yoke of oxen in the settlement ; although during the first season he had to carry a bag of flour on his back through the woods from Brockville, a distance of about fifty miles, having no road to follow but guided only by the blazes on the trees. He was chosen an elder of the first Presbyterian church, which was under the ministry of Rev. William Bell, shortly after his arrival in the country. But as he was born and bred in the Church of Scotland, he united with that branch of the Presbyterian communion as soon as it was established in Perth under the ministry of the late Rev. T. C. Wilson, of Dunkeld, Scotland, and was installed an elder in it too, which office he retained till his death in 1848.

Margaret Campbell, Rev. Dr. Campbell's mother, was of the Gleno and Inverliver branch of the clan Campbell. She was born in Glenlyon, Scotland, her mother being a MacDiarmid, one of the oldest families in Scotland. Mrs. Campbell ably seconded her husband in all his aims and efforts ; and one of the results of their joint influence and instruction was that three of their sons became ministers of the Presbyterian Church of Canada in connection with the Church of Scotland, and a fourth studied for the ministry of the Baptist church, but his health broke down before he was able to complete his course of preparation.

Robert was the seventh son, and eleventh child of the family, his youngest brother being Rev. Alexander Campbell, B.A., of Prince Albert, North-West Territory. He was educated at the common school, near his birth place ; but as it happened that the school was taught by a succession of able masters, one of them being an admirable scholar in both classics and mathematics, he enjoyed considerable advantages, and he, with his youngest brother, made very rapid progress in study. He himself "became a common school teacher at the age of sixteen ; and the desire he had to perfect himself in the subjects which he had to teach was the best master he was ever under, and he learned more always while teaching than while avowedly only a student under the direction of others.

In 1853 he entered as a student at Queen's University, taking the only open scholarship for the year. This scholarship he retained by competition every year all through his course. In 1855 he obtained the first medal ever offered in Queen's College for a special examination in English history and ancient geography. In 1856 he graduated B.A., and in 1858 M.A., in the same university. He taught the public school near Appleton in 1852, and the next year the school at Leckie's Corners, near Almonte. In 1856 he was appointed headmaster of the Queen's College Preparatory School, where he had under his care, at a time when High schools were few and inefficient throughout the country, students from all parts of Canada, and even from Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island, who had it in view to matriculate in Queen's University. A great many of the youth of Kingston also took advantage of the educational facilities afforded by the school. This position he held till 1st October, 1860, when he quitted it with a view to entering the ministry of the Presbyterian Church of Canada in connection with the Church of Scotland.

In the autumn of 1860, after having received license as a preacher in Canada, he went abroad with a view to seeing a little of the world, and becoming familiar with men and things in the older civilized communities, and he remained thirteen months in Great Britain and the Continent, taking advantage of access to the museums, art galleries, and learned societies of Edinburgh particularly, where he spent most of the winter, as well as giving occasional attendance at lectures in the university.

He returned to Canada late in the autumn of 1861, and accepted a call in April, 1862, to St. Andrew's Church, Galt, Ontario, having declined overtures from Melbourne, Beckwith, and one or two other charges. He remained in Galt till 1st December, 1866, when called to his present sphere of labour as minister of the oldest Presbyterian church in the inland provinces. The centennial celebration of the founding of the congregation that built this church was held on the 9th of March, 1886, and was an occasion of great interest to the entire community. The University of Queen's College conferred the degree of Doctor of Divinity upon him at the convocation in April, 1887.

Rev. Dr. Campbell is chairman of the Board of Management of the Widows' and Orphans' Fund of the Presbyterian Church of Canada in connection with the Church of Scotland; a member of the Executive Committee of the Temporalities Board of the same church ; a trustee of Queen's University, and a member of the Senate of the Presbyterian College, Montreal. Ho held the office of lecturer in Ecclesiastical History for two sessions in Queen's University, Kingston, and was a vice-president of the Natural History Society of Montreal. He has maintained steadfastly his early religious convictions. But while orthodox himself, he has always exercised toleration towards those that could not see exactly as he did.

Rev. Dr. Campbell won the prize for the best essay on Presbyterian Union offered by a committee of gentlemen in Quebec and Montreal in the year 1866, which was afterwards published, and greatly helped to leaven public opinion on that question. He is now engaged on a history of the St. Gabriel St. Church, Montreal, which will shortly be published, and cannot fail to prove of great interest to every Presbyterian in Canada.

Rev. Dr. Campbell was married on the 29th of December, 1863, to Margaret, eldest child and only daughter of Rev. George Macdonnell, minister of St. Andrew's Church, Fergus, a faithful, useful, and highly respected minister of the Presbyterian Church of Canada in connection with the Church of Scotland. Rev. D. ,7. Macdonnell, B.D., of Toronto, and G. M. Macdonnell, Q.C., of Kingston, are her brothers. Her mother was Elizabeth Milnes, of the same stock as Moncton Milnes, Lord Houghton.1a

6105 St. John the Evangelist Anglican Church

Begun: 1856 Early Anglican services were held in the Berlin area in the 1840s by the Rev. Michael Boomer of the Galt Mission. In 1856 William Jaffray moved from Galt to Berlin and established an English-language newspaper, the Berlin Chronicle. An Anglican, who had attended Trinity Church in Galt, Mr. Jaffray led in the formation of a congregation in Berlin, where he acted as Lay Reader. Two other gentlemen influential in establishing the Anglican presence in Berlin were Henry Joseph Fletcher Jackson and Dr. David S. Bowlby. Land was purchased on April 5, 1861 on the southeast corner of Water St. N. and Short (now Duke) Streets, and the first church, of red brick with white brick trim, was built in 1861.

The church was demolished in April 1894 to make room for the present church which was built on the same site and dedicated on October 7, 1894.

6108 About William Campbell

William may have been the son of John Campbell and Margaret Sutherland. A descendent who contributed information to the Hillman Family site states he was born in Scotland to John Campbell and Margaret Sutherland.

William lists in the census records that he was born in Ontario. On his death record, the informant (Dr. MacGregor of Caledonia), states that he was born in Dumfries, Canada.

According to an excerpt from `Our Todays and Yesterdays` by Andrew W. Taylor, John `Duke` Campbell and Margaret Lockie also settled in the area in 1824, the family reported to be from Hawick, Roxburgh, Scotland. This information provided by a descendent of the family at the time the book was compiled (copyrighted 1970, an expanded verison of the 1952 `Our Yesterdays`).

Either way, William states he was born abt. 1821, prior to either family settling in Canada.1a

6109 William E. Campbell Well-Known Resident of This Community Passes in His 84th Year

The death occurred in Galt Hospital on Saturday, January, 1st, of William Campbell, North Dumfries Township, in his 84th year. Mr. Campbell entered the hospital on Wednesday, December 30, where an operation was found necessary. Complications subsequently set in, from the effects of which he failed to recover.

He was a son of Robert Campbell and Margaret Easton, one of the pioneer families of this section. As a young man, Mr. Campbell engaged in stumping operations. He had two stumping machines and cleared hundreds of farms in this vicinity of the stumps which had been left after the farms had been cleared of bush. Horses were of little use at this task and oxen were exclusively used. These stumps, by the way, were used for fencing purposed and in many cases it is only of recent years that they have been replaced by wire.

Mr. Campbell was a hearty, healthy man of great determination and he did not hesitate to tackle jobs which would be turned down by men of lesser fibre. For a number of years, he operated the home farm, now owned by Irvine Campbell, 10th concession of Blenheim. Mr. Campbell also engaged in teaming operations for many years and accepted many contracts for gravelling roads and other such tasks.

"Bill," as he was familiarly known to many friends, far and wide, was noted for his cheerful, ready wit, and he was always ready to take or pass a joke. His jovial disposition and keen mind did not deteriorate with the years and he carried his age lightly.

He was unmarried and is survived by the following sisters and brothers: Mrs. Margaret Forbes, Saskatoon, Sask.; Mrs. Mary Gunn, Hespeler; Mrs. Jessie Rutherford, Kitchener; Robert and George, Ayr.

The Funeral

There was a large attendance at the funeral held on Tuesday afternoon from Ball's funeral Parlor to the Ayr Cemetery. The services were conducted by Rev. J.W. Currie, and the pallbearers were: Hector and Robert Gunn, Hespeler; George Gunn, Woodstock; Irvine Campbell, Roy Campbell, and Robert Campbell.1a

6110 DROWNED IN CROSSHILL
William Campbell Loses His Life While Bathing.- Close Call For Charles Burkitt.


A terrible fatality occurred at Crosshill on Sunday afternoon last by which Mr. William Campbell, only son of J. H. Campbell, Esq. lost his life, and a companion narrowly escaped a similar fate.

A party consisting of Messrs Art. Rennie, Geo. Richardson, Walter Barnaby, Chas. Burkitt and Will Campbell walked over to a small pool of water on the boundary between W. Wilford and E. Playford's farms, just east of the village. Campbell and Burkett stripped and went in to enjoy a bathe, the other young men remaining on the shore. Burkett swam across the pond. When Campbell who was only half way across called to him for assistance and he immediately swam to Campbell. Those on the shore apparently did not realize that their companions were struggling with death until Chas. Burkett left his friend made for the shore calling to those looking on to help. A fence rail was extended to him by which he assisted himself nearly to shore when he sank exhausted in about one foot of Water from which he was easily rescued. Meantime poor Campbell had sank in about five feet of water only 12 or 15 feet from shore. Campbell undoubtedly was taken with cramps as he was a strong swimmer and could easily have waded to shore. It was about an hour before his body was brought to land.

Dr. Glaister had been telephoned for and on his arrival attended to Burkett who was in a critical condition for a time but is now about recovered. William Lorne McKenzie Campbell. who was nearing his 30th year, was young man of good qualities and was widely popular among all the people of this section, and his untimely death has caused profound sorrow and sympathy for the bereaved family. Deceased was chief Ranger of the Crosshill Lodge, (No. 335) C. O. F. and the remain [sic] were interred in Rush's cemetery on Tuesday afternoon by the brethren in the presence of a vast concourse of people, many of whom came from long distances to be present.1a

6112 William Wilfred Campbell, whose father was the rector of the Anglican Church at Berlin, where William was born, became one of Canada's most famous poets, and was recognized as the leader of the Ontario poets of his generation.

He attended the University of Toronto and the Episcopal Theological School, Cambridge, Massachusetts, and was ordained as a minister in the Church of England in 1886. He had a parish in New Hampshire and in 1988 became rector at St. Stephen, New Brunswick. He left the ministry in 1891 and entered the civil service.

His first volume of verse, Lake Lyrics, was published in 1889. He published five other books of poetry; four verse-plays; three novels and a descriptive work, The Canadian Lake Region, and edited the Oxford Book of Canadian Verse. Campbell was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada in 1893. One of his best-known poems was Indian Summer.

6113 St. Clement's Roman Catholic Church

The first Catholic missionaries in the area were Father James W. Campion, Father Cassidy and Father John Cullen - beginning c.1828. They were followed by the St. Agatha missionaries, Fathers John Louis Wiriath (1834-1837) and Peter Schneider (1838-1844), but it was Father Simon Sanderl (1844-1848), also from St. Agatha, who organized the construction of a church. The deed for the land, located on the northwest corner of Duke and Guelph (now Dolph) Streets and purchased from the Erb brothers (for five shillings), was dated March 9, 1846, but it is thought that building actually began in 1844. The new church was reported to be "perhaps the only substantial Catholic church west of Toronto" (Spetz 1916:139).
Services were held more or less monthly for many years as priests were in short supply and had to be shared by other congregations. Regular monthly services began in February 1882 with the arrival of Father William Kloepfer of Berlin who looked after Preston as well. Then, beginning in 1889 Preston and Hespeler became missions of Galt. Finally, on March 25, 1905, Preston received its own resident pastor, Rev. Jonas Lenhard. By now it had become apparent that a new and larger church was definitely needed but it was not until January 1907, when Father William Gehl was pastor, that land further along Duke Street was purchased. The cornerstone for the present church was laid September 4, 1911, and the basement of the building was ready for use the following year. The basement continued in use for services until the church was completely finished in 1922. The old church had been torn down in the summer of 1915. Fire on December 26, 1971 caused considerable damage, but the church was not damaged structurally. Repairs were made and the church was rededicated on June 25, 1972.1

6117 SAD ACCIDENT AT GALT

A Pleasure Steamboat Goes Over The Mill Dam -- 8 Drowned

May 23, Galt. --The little steamer EMPRESS OF INDIA, which had been placed on the Grand River, and which on Monday last commenced its trips for the season on Blain's Dam, to all appearance was perfectly safe for the business required of it, and the calamity which has overtaken it was totally unlooked for.

Last evening about eight o'clock a party of some fifteen young men and two young women embarked on the vessel for a sail up the river. As the boat was crossing the dam something appeared to go wrong with the rudder, and the head of the boat could not be turned sufficiently up the stream to enable it to counteract the effects of the current caused by the flow over the dam. The west side of the dam was reached without mishap, however, but the point where the boat would have touched being rough and rocky, an order was given to reverse the engine, which was done. The boat again getting out into the stream, an effort was made to turn the bow up the stream but again it seemed as if the rudder would not work, and when at last it did, it unfortunately was turned the wrong way, and the boat headed directly for the fall, and before those on board could realize their position the steamer drifted broadside to the fall, and in a moment went crashing over into the boiling water beneath. Before it took it's final leap, however, two of it's occupants, John and William Ovens, jumped into the water, and the latter, in an almost miraculous manner, managed to obtain a foothold on the very edge and to resist the current until he reached the shore. His brother John was not so fortunate, being carried over the faIl, but he was eventually taken out of the river some distance below in an insensible condition.

Of those who went over with the boat, eight were lost, the rest having in various ways managed to reach shore. Both of the young women were saved, one, Miss Landreth, having had an escape that was perfectly miraculous, she floated down the stream until she struck the western pier of the upper bridge, against which the water pressed her so tightly that parties were enabled to get ropes and rescue her.

The following is a complete list of the drowned:-
Jas. Montgomery (engineer and owner), Edward Wren, Andrew Jackson; John Fraser; Frederick Cane; H. J. Jaffray (of the Galt reporter); Thomas Elliott and David Scott. The body of Mr. H. J. Jaffray was taken out of the water within a short time of the accident, but the most unremitting exertions on the part of the medical men present failed to restore life. It is the general impression, that when the boat went over the fall he must have been struck and stunned.

Efforts to recovers of the bodies were made during the night but without success. This morning the boat was turned over where she lay below the falls, t being supposed that some of the bodies must be entangled in the wreck, but none were discovered. The dam is about ten or twelve feet high, with about a foot of water flowing over the fall. The depth of water above the fall is from fifteen to eighteen feet.1a

6130 I have attached the photo of Asa Wolverton. He was born in PA, July 4, 1803; came to Paris, ON with his family from Cayuga NY in 1823. He was a lumber merchant and a very, very wealthy man; in business with his younger brother Enos. Asa died in 1861. Juliet and Asa married in 1842 (still researching for more information) did not have children but I have researched that Juliet had a brother Wm who named his son Joseph Wolverton Capron. Her brother John named his son Joseph Wolverton Capron.

We are currently doing a complete historic restoration of Juliet and Asa's home which was built on the edge of the Grand River in Upper Village of Paris in 1851. It was a one bedroom house with a ballroom. We know that they took in the freed black slaves as well as the Irish families as servants....1a

6133 Born in Guelph, Ontario, Dominic Cardillo - teacher, politician and man of the people - became a household name long before the City of Kitchener named a major ice hockey arena in his honour.

Cardillo worked as a secondary school teacher and coach from 1956 to 1965 at Kitchener Collegiate Institute, at Forest Heights Secondary School in 1964, and Laurel Vocational in 1968.

Cardillo ran successfully for Kitchener City Council in 1963, sponsored in part by a collection taken by his grade twelve students. He remained in office until his retirement in 1994. The longest-serving Mayor in Kitchener's history, Cardillo had many tributes awarded to him, including the naming of the Dom Cardillo Arena.

His service to the community was remarkable and included: director of the Canadian Association of Fire Chiefs; president of Big Brothers; secretary of the Kitchener Minor Hockey Association; member of two hospital boards; and eighteen years as a Hydro Commissioner. He helped raise funds for many local civic projects and charitable causes.

Known to attend all functions to which he was invited, Cardillo had the ability to remember names of everyone he met. He tirelessly promoted his city and its reputation, taking a fastidious interest in the cleanliness of its streets. Also known for passing out pens and lapel pins promoting the City, he was once photographed giving out pens in a rice paddy in Japan.2a

6167 Mrs. Levi Stein

Last Sunday morning, Dec. 15th, death claimed the beloved wife of Mr. Levi Stein. Deceased moved to Elmira with her husband and daughter about 17 years ago. Although suffering with a chronic ailment, she was able to be about and attend to her household duties most of the time until several weeks ago, when her condition became worse and the services of a professional nurse were required. She leaves a sorrowing husband and an invalided daughter to mourn their great loss. She was laid to rest in the Elmira Union Cemetery. The funeral was conducted by Rev. P. Webster. A short but impressive service was held in the Methodist church. Rev Webster spoke on the test: "She hath done what she could." His theme was "The Immortality of Good Work." He spoke very feelingly of the help he personally had received from Mrs. Stein's life, saying it was a tonic to visit at her home. The sympathy of the community is extended to the sorrowing husband and the daughter.1a

6169 THE LATE LEVI KARL

A Few Interesting Notes on His Life

Doubtful Whether He Was 100 Years Old

The News-Record is indebted to Mr. Bachman for the following interesting reminiscences of the history of Levi Karl, the colored gentleman who died at the House of Industry on Thursday Last. Though generally reported to be a centenarian, Mr. Bachman stated that the figures of history would hardly bear out this statement, according to narratives related by Karl himself about his boyhood days. He was born in slavery and stated he remembered quite distinctly when the British, under Rear Admiral Cockburn, worsted the Americans, and advanced upon Washington. He relates the fact of being carried away by his master and hidden away in a large storehouse to escape from the British. As he was only about 5 or 6 years old at the time, he could hardly have reached the century mark. About 60 years ago he first came into this vicinity and was engaged by a Weaver family, who presented him with the land near the High School, on which he lived for many years. After the death of his wife, about 8 years ago, he became involved in difficulties, and for some years was an inmate of the Poor House, his step-daughter and her son being also committed. A son of Karl's, a sailor, met his death on Lake Erie, during a gale and shipwreck many years ago.1a

6176 ...Unfortunately Mr. Bryant's principalship of the school was doomed to be very brief. An infirmity, deafness, which had been gradually creeping upon him, so interfered with his duties as to make it absolutely necessary for him to withdraw from the position and from the profession, and so, to the great regret of the school and the public, he retired in 1884, after three years of splendid work. Mr. Carscadden, M. A., who had been English Master of the school during Mr. Bryant's time, was appointed to succeed him, and from that year, 1884, to the present, Mr. Carscadden has guided the destinies of the Old St. Andrew's Church. Collegiate, maintaining for it that high character which it has held through half a century. It only remains to state that much of the success which the school has attained is undoubtedly due to the able support of the citizens and of the trustees, who have always given the school their best services and support, and have sought by every legitimate means to maintain the high position so long held by this, probably the most unique institution in secondary education in the Province of Ontario...1a

Interview with Miss Kate Carswell conducted on 15 June 1978.

Miss Carswell now resides at the John Noble Home in Brantford. Previous to her move there she lived in Glen Morris She came from a large family and was involved in many community activities including the Women's Institute.

Interview

Interviewer: Were you born in Glen Morris?

Miss Carswell: Yes, I was born in Glen Morris in 1890. My sister and brother and I were born there. The others were born elsewhere. I was from a big family, my brothers worked for farmers and my sisters and I worked doing housework. I went to Galt in 1909, so Glen Morris was my early life.

Interviewer: Could you describe what the village was like in your early days?

Miss Carswell: it was a busy little place at one time. There was a cheese factory, a woollen mill, a saw mill, two blacksmith's shops, a wagon shop and of course a store. There was a frame store that got burned in my day. They had a tailor's shop in there with several people making mens' clothes. There was a hotel where the library is now. That's where they have the good reading books and very old books too.

Interviewer: I've heard some controversy over the spelling of the name "Glen Morris". Could you tell me something about that?

Miss Carswell: Before Glen Morris was Glen Morris it was known as Middleton and then as Dawson's Bridge. And this Glen Morris business being spelled in two words is the funny part of it. There was a gentleman who lived in Galt who wrote a book. His name was the Honorable James Young. It says in the book that he wrote that it was supposed to be spelled as one word. There was quite an argument about that. When we went to school it was always spelled as two words and you would think that if it was supposed to be spelled as one word the teachers would have made us do it that way. In later years my sister wrote to our nephew who was then in parliament to see what it was in Ottawa, so he had his secretary look it up and she found it as two words. As you know Glen Morris was named after a Mr. Morris who was a postmaster at one time and you would think that anybody's name would not be spelled with a small letter. I do have one record that supports the idea of spelling it as one word and that is in a family Bible. My grandmother had this family Bible and the date in it is 18?9. In it she had "Mrs. Carswil, Glenmorris", one word. So at one time it may have been spelled as one word, but we knew nothing about it. Mrs Hester Walker, as curator of the Tweedsmuir History asked about it and they said that it did not matter as to how it was spelled but it mattered to us.

Interviewer: So you moved to Galt and worked there?

Miss Carswell: No, I lived in Galt but my home was always in Glen Morris. I worked at a doctor's house there and I stayed there for 27 ½ years. I did a lot of things there and then I went to work at the silt mills. I rode back and forth, still living at home.

Interviewer: Could you tell me a little bit about the schools that you attended?

Miss Carswell: I know we had an inspector who came around and gave us a half day holiday once in a while. This was at the old school where the Scouts and Guides have there camp now. I don't think that, it went too higher grades than grade eight. When I passed entrance I wasn't going to go on so then I took one more year called Public School Leaving. If anyone wanted to go to High School they would have to go to Galt.

Interviewer: I understand that you were involved in the United Church in Glen Morris?

Miss Carswell: Yes, I always went there. My sister played the organ there for fifty years, believe it or not. She played in 1902 and 1903 and then she went to Galt to work. Then she came home to stay with mother and they kept asking her year after year to play the church organ. She just loved it. I was in the choir at the church. My father came to Glen Morris as "precenter". We still have the tuning fork that he used.

Interviewer: Were you involved in Women's Institute, Miss Carswell?

Miss Carswell: No, not a great deal. I was away a good bit of the time working. I was involved more with it later on though. My sister Mary and I did quite a bit of work on the Tweedsmuir Books.

Interviewer: Did you belong to any other organizations?

Miss Carswell: I was secretary of the United Church Women's Association for twelve years. I belonged to the afternoon group. Let me tell you a little story. We were up at Harknesses one afternoon for a meeting and Mrs. Moore was the guest speaker. Well she was doing her talk and all of a sudden "Katie" fell asleep. So I put in the records "that due to the lulling voice of the guest speaker the secretary went to sleep. She admits that she missed out on some of the important things for which she is truly sorry. That's right in the book. I don't think that anyone else would have put it in.

Interviewer: What was transportation like from Glen Morris to the larger centres?

Miss Carswell: There was a trolley that went from Glen Morris to Galt. In the first place it was the Grand Valley Railroad and it came up through from Paris and cut through some good farmland. Later they put the Lake Erie and Northern Railroad through the bush. The trolley consisted of one car and most people used this in the time of the Grand Valley when few people had cars.

Interviewer: What kind of entertainment was available to you when you were younger?

Miss Carswell:
Well, there were strawberry socials that were held on the Manse lawn. A young gentleman would come up and take the young ladies to the table where they would eat their ice cream and strawberries or whatever and then the band from Paris would play and the couples would stroll around the lawn.

Interviewer: What about dances?

Miss Carswell: Oh yes there were dances too, but that is something I was not very good: at so I'm not a good one to talk about it with. My sister Mary was a lovely dancer. They did love to dance and there were a lot of them around. They really looked nice. They were so smooth and they would just slide over the floor.

We also had concerts. There was one time we had the church annual supper in the hall. We had to wait on each others tables. There were so many people that we had to have three sittings. They would come from all over the surrounding area. After supper they would have the program including recitations, plays and singing.

We had Christmas Concerts at school too. All the children would take part. I had a good memory and I was a fairly good poet. My mother was related to the Stevenson's and some said that we were related to Robert Louis Stevenson, so maybe I inherited his talent.

We were quite a musical family. There were four bass and the rest of us fit in and we made quite a sound. We had a good time on our own.2a

6191 MRS. THOMAS TODD. Mrs. Todd was a kindred spirit to Mr. Todd. If she had one pre dominant characteristic it was this, that she was bent on doing good. Kindness was her distinguishing quality. That in her was always seeking expression. And she gave it expression constantly in secret unobtrusive ways. With her own hands she ministered to the poor and needy. And those in straitened circumstances deserving people found in her a warm friend. But few knew the extent of her beneficence. She hated the pharisaic spirit of sounding a trumpet before one in the work of charity. With her it was pure Christian charity. She did it for its own sake. But this in her sprang from religious principle, that was its source. She loved the pure gospel of the grace of God, and would tolerate nothing else. And as years rolled by she clung to it with firmer and firmer grasp. Nothing but the gospel would satisfy her soul. She must hear of Christ and His work, otherwise she was unsatisfied. Christ s name was to her full of music, and life came into her soul through it. A sermon that did not have something of Christ in it was utterly worthless to her.

Her heart went out after the salvation of souls What hungering and thirsting she had in reference to this! Often when I have called on her our conversation would be of nothing else. One could not but feel the intensity of her spirit in regard to this, and be mightily stirred by it. There was in her no worldly spirit, dwelling upon the frivolities of life and the empty vanities of time. Another light shone in her sky, that was brighter than the light of the noonday sun, and that dimmed all else. Many listening to her talk might think her narrow and out of harmony with her mundane relations, but she was simply coming down upon them from a higher sphere to lift them up. To lift anything higher we must be above it. And one can elevate the world, not by conformity to it, but by being better than it is, and higher than it holds itself. You cannot reform a drunkard by drinking with him, or a worldling by being of the same mind. No, you 18 must be sober and spiritually minded to do both.

Mrs. Todd had strong faith in prayer. When Mr. Todd crossed the Atlantic, as he did often on business, she never failed to accompany him with her prayers Once he had to cross in mid winter, and she was much opposed to his tempting the stormy sea at such time. She entreated him not to go, but he persisted in going. When he would not on any account give up his intention, her greatest conceivable threat of evil was put in these words: " Now, I'll not pray for you, Todd; remember that, I'll not pray for you."

She went out to the North-West to visit Dr. and Mrs. Lowe, and while there was called home. Some years before she had been seriously ill, indeed hopelessly ill, but she recovered, and lived on, with all the experiences of that time as a preparation for the Lord's coming, whenever that might be. She was found waiting and ready to go in to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb.

6192 Unimaginable grief' when two mothers lose four sons

Ten local soldiers were killed 100 years ago, capturing a ruined French village on the Western Front.

It was among the bloodiest days this community endured in the First World War and it happened Sept. 15, 1916, at the Somme battlefield.

The telegrams reached home three weeks later. Two mothers suffered the most.

Harriet Carthy learned that her son Percy was killed in action. That's after his brother Eric was killed in an earlier skirmish. Annie McNicol learned that her son James was killed in action. That's after his brother Alexander died of his wounds following an earlier skirmish.

Percy and James climbed out of the trenches at 6:24 a.m. They were in the first wave to attack the German front line, aiming for the ruins of Courcelette.

The men of their 18th infantry battalion advanced under shrapnel and bullets, inching forward on their bellies, using corpses as cover, after the enemy caught them in the open in no man's land. Percy, James, and more than 90 comrades were killed.

James, 22, checked train cars before he enlisted. He was a cheerful man who played in the battalion band. "I knew there was something wrong," Annie said, absorbing the terrible news. She hadn't received a letter from her son in three weeks.

Percy, 21, was a labourer. The Kitchener News Record consoled his mother by lauding her dead sons as heroes: "Their example inculcated by the spirit of manhood will not die."

Later, a stranger wrote to say that Percy saved her brother's life in a different battle. "I hope Mrs. Carthy that you, your husband and your family in your great loss will find a little consolation in knowing what a great hero your son was."...

6208 Death as Result of Drinking Lye

We sincerely regret to have to report the death of Annie Edna, third daughter of Mr. And Mrs. Chas. Cassady, Blenheim, which sad event took place yesterday. The child was nearing her fourth birthday and the case is all the more interesting from the heroic fight made a year ago last May to overcome the evil effects of drinking a solution of Gillett's lye. The little one suffered excruciating pain at the time and for weeks her life was despaired of. In fact she never fully recovered and before her death, though apparently not suffering much, if any, she was reduced in flesh to a mere skeleton. The funeral takes place to Ayr cemetery tomorrow afternoon and much sympathy will be extended to the bereaved family.1a

6209 Death of Charles W. Cassady
Passing of Another Pioneer Resident of the Section

The death on Saturday, Oct. 5, of Charles William Cassady of South Dumfries, removes a pioneer resident of the section, and one who spent all his life in aiding to foster and build up the agricultural interests of the country. To such men as him the wonderful development achieved is largely due and when their life's work is done and they pass on to eternal rest it is our duty to honor their memory.

Born near St. George over 68 years ago, the late Mr. Cassady moved to Blenheim at the age of three years, where he lived continuously until a few months ago. In his early days a good deal of the work about the farm was done with oxen and there was little machinery to lighten the labor of the husbandman.

In 1884 the deceased married Annie Hunter, who survives, together with the following family: Roy, Sarah and Florence at home, Hunter in Paris, Ernie overseas, and Mrs. Robert McArthur in South Dumfries. A number of brothers and sisters also survive. They are: David in Ayr, Mrs. Marshal Daniels in Hamilton, Mrs. John Petrie, Sr., in Blenheim, Arthur at Hardie Bay, B.C., and Daniel in Paris, Ont.1a

6257 SAMUEL CASSEL was born on a farm two miles northeast of Washington in the Township of Blenheim in the year 1858. In the year 1861 his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Henry B. Cassel, moved to a farm on the Huron Road in the Township of Wilmot, three miles west of Haysville. Here Mr. Cassel spent his boyhood days. After securing an education at S.S.

Three years ago he bought the west half of Lot 27, known as "Spruce Farm", adjoining his own property, from Mr. Manley Mark, thereby securing one of the finest 200 acre farms in the county. Mr. Cassel was married to Miss Mark, eldest daughter of the late Samuel Mark, in the year 1885. Mr. Cassel has won an enviable reputation as a feeder of export cattle. Visitors from all sections visit his large barns to admire the beautiful cattle that are to be found in his stables. He feeds 70 exporters every year. He has been school trustee for three terms, besides being continuous secretary-treasurer of his school section for several years. He was a member of the school board when the present schoolhouse was built and was largely instrumental in making it one of the finest schoolhouses in the county.

Her desire has been granted and though her lips may be silent and her hands cease to minister, yet her labors will still go on for "she being dead yet speaketh."

6267 St. Clement's Roman Catholic Church

The first Catholic missionaries in the area were Father James W. Campion, Father Cassidy and Father John Cullen - beginning c.1828. They were followed by the St. Agatha missionaries, Fathers John Louis Wiriath (1834-1837) and Peter Schneider (1838-1844), but it was Father Simon Sanderl (1844-1848), also from St. Agatha, who organized the construction of a church. The deed for the land, located on the northwest corner of Duke and Guelph (now Dolph) Streets and purchased from the Erb brothers (for five shillings), was dated March 9, 1846, but it is thought that building actually began in 1844. The new church was reported to be "perhaps the only substantial Catholic church west of Toronto" (Spetz 1916:139).
Services were held more or less monthly for many years as priests were in short supply and had to be shared by other congregations. Regular monthly services began in February 1882 with the arrival of Father William Kloepfer of Berlin who looked after Preston as well. Then, beginning in 1889 Preston and Hespeler became missions of Galt. Finally, on March 25, 1905, Preston received its own resident pastor, Rev. Jonas Lenhard. By now it had become apparent that a new and larger church was definitely needed but it was not until January 1907, when Father William Gehl was pastor, that land further along Duke Street was purchased. The cornerstone for the present church was laid September 4, 1911, and the basement of the building was ready for use the following year. The basement continued in use for services until the church was completely finished in 1922. The old church had been torn down in the summer of 1915. Fire on December 26, 1971 caused considerable damage, but the church was not damaged structurally. Repairs were made and the church was rededicated on June 25, 1972.1

6274 Robert Cathcart

LINWOOD\emdash The death occurred here on Friday of Mr. Robert Cathcart at the age 87. Mr. Cathcart for nearly a quarter of a century was a rural mail driver, covering more than 100,000 miles with his buggy and horse. Until last year he had continued as rural carrier and then relinquished this post and proceeded to meet the local trains and cart the mail to the office. A series of strokes, the last one recently, resulted in his death. Born on the old homestead, Mr. Cathcart qualified as a school teacher.

6278 THE REV. WILLIAM CAVEN, D.D., PRINCIPAL OF KNOX COLLEGE, TORONTO.

Principal Caven was born in the parish of Kirkcolm, Wigtonshire, Scotland, on the 26th of December, 1830. His ancestors on both sides had been settled in that neighbourhood for centuries, and several of them figure conspicuously in the local annals. They were in their day strenuous supporters of the Solemn League and Covenant, and the names of some of them are enshrined on the roll of the "Wigton Martyrs." One of the most cherished traditions of the family on the mother's side relates how one of them, for refusing to abjure his faith, suffered grievous bodily mutilation at the hands of the dragoons of "Bloody Claverse"-known to history as John Graham, Viscount Dundee. A less accurately authenticated tradition identifies Margaret Wilson, who suffered martyrdom in 1685, along with Margaret Maclachlan,10 as a member of the family from which Principal Caven's mother is descended.

His father was the late Mr. John Caven, a sound scholar and a very worthy man, who was by profession a school teacher. The late Mr. Caven was a member of the United Secession Church, which, by its union, in 1840, with the "Relief" Church, as it was called, formed the United Presbyterian Church-an organization which still retains a separate corporate existence in Scotland and the United States, though it has long since lost it in Canada and some of the other colonies, owing to successive unions between it and other Presbyterian bodies. Not being a member of the Established Church of Scotland, Mr. Caven was in those days ineligible for the position of a parish schoolmaster, but he had no difficulty in obtaining pupils, and enjoyed a creditable reputation alike as a sound scholar and a successful instructor. He emigrated from Wigtonshire to Canada in the summer of 1847, and for a short time took up his abode near Galt, Ontario, in the township of North Dumfries. After a time he removed to the neighbourhood of St. Mary's, where he continued to reside down to the time of his death a few months since. He resumed his labours in the work of education after his arrival in Canada, first as a teacher, and afterwards as a school superintendent, and was greatly beloved for his amiability and uprightness of character....1a

6280 CAVEN, WILLIAM, Presbyterian minister, educator, and theologian; b. 26 Dec. 1830 in Kirkcolm, Scotland, son of John Caven and Mary Milroy; m. July 1856 Margaret Goldie, daughter of botanist John Goldie, and they had three sons and three daughters; d. 1 Dec. 1904 in Toronto.

William Caven was born into a Scottish Secessionist family with strong Covenanting roots. Among his ancestors were men who signed the Solemn League and Covenant and whose names appeared on the roll of the Wigton martyrs. Liberal principles in politics and voluntaryism in religion were characteristics of this tradition. William was educated at home in Scotland by his father. In 1847 the family moved to Upper Canada, to Dumfries Township, near Galt (Cambridge). John Caven taught in Ayr and later served as superintendent of schools in Waterloo County. William taught school for a few months in Blandford Township before beginning studies for the ministry with William Proudfoot* and Alexander Mackenzie at the United Presbyterian Seminary in London, Upper Canada, in 1847. In 1852 Caven was licensed by the Presbytery of Flamborough and accepted a call to the two-point charge of St Marys and Downie. He was ordained on 7 October that year.

Caven would make significant contributions to church and nation in three areas: as an educator, as an ecclesiastical statesman, and as a leader of public campaigns for the preservation of Protestant moral principles in the legislation of various levels of government. In 1866 he was offered and accepted the chair of exegetical theology and apologetics at Knox College, Toronto, where he had been lecturing in exegetical theology since 1864, following the resignation of George Paxton Young*. By 1869 Caven was also teaching biblical criticism. Towards the end of his life, in 1896, a separate chair of Old Testament literature would be created, and Caven would be left with the chair of New Testament literature and exegesis. Upon the retirement of Principal Michael Willis* in 1870, Caven was named chairman of the senate of Knox College. Three years later he was appointed principal; he would hold the post till his death. Under his leadership the college raised some $120,000 for new buildings on Spadina Avenue, which opened in 1875. As an educator he was active outside the college as well, and in 1887 he succeeded Goldwin Smith as president of the Ontario Teachers' Association. Queen's College, Kingston, had conferred an honorary dd upon him in 1875 and Princeton Theological Seminary in New Jersey did the same in 1896. Also in 1896 he received an lld from the University of Toronto.

Caven guided Knox College during a time of intense theological ferment and taught biblical studies in years marked by heated debate in all Protestant theological colleges over the nature and authority of Scripture. His position in the religious controversies of the late 19th century was that of a moderate conservative. Though open to new insights gained by thorough investigation of the Bible, he insisted that the burden of proof rested on those advocating change in doctrine or practice. "A well-balanced mind," Caven wrote in the Knox College Monthly in 1891, "is at once conservative and progressive; - conservative of everything good which has come down to us, while it seeks by careful investigation to enlarge the boundaries of ascertained truth and to purge away errors and mistakes." He was confident that the central doctrines of evangelical Protestantism concerning God and humanity - the Trinity, the person of Christ, original sin, the atonement, and justification - were clearly evident in Scripture and were sufficient foundations for any task of theological reconstruction that might face the church. "The Church started out with a revelation of truth," he told Donaldson Grant in an interview in 1902, "which could not be disproved and which no change could destroy. The belief in one God, in one Saviour, in one Holy Spirit, and in one way of salvation from the guilt and power of sin, may be more clearly apprehended and more exactly stated, but no radical change can be made in the content of that belief, based as it is on divine revelation."

In the various proceedings of the heresy trial of Daniel James Macdonnell* from 1875 to 1877, Caven supported Macdonnell's right to raise questions about the doctrinal standards of the Presbyterian Church in Canada. Caven's view of the limits of that questioning, however, was clearly stated in articles in 1879 and 1882 in the Catholic Presbyterian, a journal serving the Pan-Presbyterian Alliance, an international council of Presbyterian churches. Whatever developments there might be in the construction of doctrine, he argued, these would have to remain steadfastly biblical, take due regard of the church's doctrinal attainments, and contribute to "the growing spiritual life and holiness of the Church."

Caven's views were promulgated through many articles, reviews, sermons, and addresses published or reported in the religious and secular press or issued in pamphlet form. The international theological journal with which he was most closely associated was the Presbyterian Review, edited by Archibald Alexander Hodge of Princeton Theological Seminary and Charles Augustus Briggs of Union Theological Seminary in New York City. Caven became an associate editor in 1885 and regularly contributed book reviews and reports on Canadian affairs. In 1890, on the eve of the heresy trial that led to Briggs's suspension from the Presbyterian ministry in 1893 and broke the official connection of Union seminary with Presbyterianism, the journal became the Presbyterian and Reformed Review. Caven remained on the editorial board and continued to publish in the journal until 1903.

In addition to his duties at Knox College, Cavenwas active in the affairs of the University of Toronto. For almost 20 years following the affiliation of Knox with the university in 1885, he served on the university's senate. He played a crucial role in the negotiations that resulted in more adequate government funding for University College and in the federation of the University of Toronto in 1887 [see Sir Daniel Wilson*]. Caven had initially opposed the appeal for increased funding, but came to see the value of a single university with several colleges. His position was made public in two lengthy letters to the Globe in December 1883, later published in a pamphlet. A single university, he argued, would bring together various classes and creeds and make a significant contribution to the elimination of sectionalism, partyism, and denominationalism. State control should be coextensive with state support, eliminating any alliances between individual churches and the civil government. This position was consistent with the voluntaryism of Caven's Secessionist background.

Caven was recognized as an adviser of Sir Oliver Mowat, premier of Ontario from 1872 to 1896, and of George William Ross* during his years as minister of education in Ontario from 1883 to 1899 and as premier from 1899 to 1905. Both Caven and Mowat belonged to St James Square Presbyterian Church. They were elected elders by the congregation in 1870 but declined to serve because of the burdens of their respective offices. Both were officers of the Evangelical Alliance, Caven serving for some years as vice-president of the Toronto branch. Caven gave the eulogy at Mowat's public funeral. Premier Ross saw Caven as a "better judge of abstract problems than of men," but acknowledged him to be a valued adviser. The two politicians recognized Caven as a key figure in keeping the Scottish and Irish Presbyterians in the Liberal camp.

Caven was a leader in the negotiations that led in 1875 to the unification of various Presbyterian bodies to form the Presbyterian Church in Canada [see John Cook*] as well as in the initial stages of the negotiations that would lead to church union in 1925. When the Cavens had immigrated in 1847, Presbyterians in British North America were organized into eight distinct bodies reflecting geographical and theological differences. A series of regional unions reduced the number to four by 1868. In 1870, in the wake of confederation and at the urging of prominent Presbyterian businessmen, negotiations for a single Presbyterian church in the dominion began in earnest. The following year the Canada Presbyterian Church (formed in 1861 by a union of the Free Church and the United Presbyterian Church in Canada in connection with the United Presbyterian Church in Scotland) added Caven and five others to its union committee. Their presence was intended to counteract the resistance to union from such Free Church partisans as the Reverend Lachlan McPherson of East Williams Township and the Reverend John Ross of Brucefield. Caven's leadership in the cause of church union was acknowledged when he was elected moderator of the Canada Presbyterian Church for 1874-75 and invited to participate in the founding service of the Presbyterian Church in Canada at Montreal's Victoria Hall on 15 June 1875 (he would serve as moderator of this body in 1892-93).

Presbyterians now constituted the largest Protestant denomination in Canada and were confident that their numerical strength, economic resources, and ecclesiastical vision were adequate to the challenge of expansion that faced them in the new dominion. Caven and others, notably George Monro Grant of Queen's College, hoped for a broader union that would bring together all of the evangelical Protestant churches in Canada. From 1888 until his death in 1904, Caven chaired a series of committees on church union appointed by the Presbyterian General Assembly. In 1889 he was a key speaker at the Toronto Conference on Christian Unity, which brought together Presbyterians, Anglicans, and Methodists. These talks faltered as a result of the Anglican insistence on the historic episcopate.

In 1898 the Canadian Society of Christian Unity was founded under the presidency of Herbert Symonds, an Anglican; George Grant served as its second president, and Caven as its third. Caven presented his General Assembly with a memorial from the society in 1902, asking that union be actively pursued. That same year the Methodist General Conference in Winnipeg issued an invitation to the Congregationalists and the Presbyterians to seek organic union. The Presbyterians again appointed Caven to convene their committee. The first joint meeting, led by his successor Robert Harvey Warden, took place in Knox's Church, Toronto, from 20 to 22 Dec. 1904, just three weeks after Caven's death. Caven had also played a leading role in the Pan-Presbyterian Alliance from its inception in 1877. He served as its president for the last four years of his life.

In a feature article in the first issue of the Westminster, an interdenominational magazine edited by Caven's former pupil James Alexander Macdonald*, Caven summarized the principles that informed his advocacy of church union. There was nothing in Scripture, he argued, that sanctioned the divided state of the church. Admittedly, many of the current divisions resulted from conflicts over the purity of doctrine or the freedom of religion, but when the reasons for disunity disappeared, as Caven was sure they had among evangelical Protestants, union should be restored. He listed four conditions for reunion: affirmation of the great doctrines of the Christian faith, agreement on the constitution and administrative structures necessary to allow the church to pursue its mission, a free spiritual life that acknowledged the glory of God as its supreme aim, and mutual esteem and affection among the denominations. One of the reasons for Caven's advocacy of church union was his belief that a united Protestantism would have a much more powerful influence on national righteousness than separate denominations.
Together with his work for church union, Caven was a spokesman for the Protestant moral reform causes of "equal rights," sabbath observance, and temperance. Like his fellow clergyman Donald Harvey MacVicar, he played a major role in the opposition to the Jesuits' Estates Act of 1888 [see Honoré Mercier*]. Caven's objections to the Quebec bill restoring to the Jesuits a significant portion of the income from estates confiscated at the time of the conquest were fourfold. He saw the legislation as a violation of the trust under which the lands were given to the Quebec legislature; it disrupted the arrangement by which the revenues were devoted to higher education; it elevated the authority of Roman canon law over the law of the empire; and it recognized the right of the pope to interfere in Canadian civil affairs in a way that compromised true freedom. His opposition was based on the principle that churches must not receive public funds to aid them in their proper work, nor may they draw upon the public treasury with the excuse of doing work beneficial to the state.

Opposition to the act and to the federal government's refusal to disallow it crystallized in ministerial associations and in the Evangelical Alliance. In Toronto protests culminated in the gathering of Canada's first and only Anti-Jesuit Convention, on 11-12 June 1889. The meetings, chaired by Caven, led to the establishment of the Equal Rights Association to continue the agitation for disallowance. Caven was chosen as its president. Ensuing events led to a struggle between Caven, who saw the ERA as a principled pressure group, and D'Alton McCarthy*, who sought to turn the association into a Protestant political party. Caven's views held sway until his resignation as president in December 1890. Some linked the ERA with the founding of the Protestant Protective Association, but Caven roundly condemned the latter organization for its intolerance and political aspirations. Throughout the controversy, Caven remained supportive of the educational policies of Oliver Mowat and George Ross with respect to the rights of Catholics in Ontario. Later, however, he actively opposed public support for Catholic schools in Manitoba.

Shortly after the "equal rights" agitation, Caven, a member of the Lord's Day Alliance, became a leading spokesman in efforts to resist the introduction of Sunday streetcars in Toronto. From his appearance on the platform at a mass rally in December 1891 until Sunday cars were allowed in 18, he was consistent in his opposition through ministerial associations and citizens' committees, in the pulpit, on the platform, and in the press. It was not enough, he argued in a pamphlet published in 1897, to leave sabbath observance to the religious sentiment of the community. "A community has a common life, and the fundamental convictions of any community must at length necessarily influence and find expression in its laws." Legislative protection of the rest and quiet of the Lord's Day as a commemoration of creation and redemption was "surely necessary and right" in a Christian nation such as Canada. Caven's minister at St James Square, Alfred Gandier, noted in an obituary in the Globe that he refused to use Sunday streetcars and walked two miles to church each week.

Another important moral cause that enjoyed Caven's public support was the temperance movement. Caven was on the executive of the Ontario branch of the Dominion Alliance [see Francis Stephens Spence*] when in 1902 the Ross government introduced temperance legislation patterned on that in Manitoba. The Manitoba act had just survived a legal challenge in the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council. Attached to the Ontario bill, however, was provision for a referendum to ascertain public support. Caven and the executive of the Dominion Alliance reluctantly accepted the referendum, recognizing that the legislation required significant public support if it was to be enforced. Caven took part in the campaign through platform and press, but the temperance activists were narrowly defeated. Writing in the Globe in 1904, Caven continued to urge the government to be true to its promises and abolish the bar, though he was satisfied with the proposed legislation that would permit the consumption of alcohol in private homes.

Caven's death from pneumonia late in 1904 was mourned in editorials across Canada. As a churchman, he was remembered as one who steadfastly opposed any unreasonable innovation that threatened to destroy popular reverence. As a citizen, he was honoured as one who upheld the centrality of Protestant moral principles in the life of the nation.

THE REV. WILLIAM CAVEN, D.D., PRINCIPAL OF KNOX COLLEGE, TORONTO.

Principal Caven was born in the parish of Kirkcolm, Wigtonshire, Scotland, on the 26th of December, 1830. His ancestors on both sides had been settled in that neighbourhood for centuries, and several of them figure conspicuously in the local annals. They were in their day strenuous supporters of the Solemn League and Covenant, and the names of some of them are enshrined on the roll of the "Wigton Martyrs." One of the most cherished traditions of the family on the mother's side relates how one of them, for refusing to abjure his faith, suffered grievous bodily mutilation at the hands of the dragoons of "Bloody Claverse" known to history as John Graham, Viscount Dundee. A less accurately authenticated tradition identifies Margaret Wilson, who suffered martyrdom in 1685, along with Margaret Maclachlan,10 as a member of the family from which Principal Caven's mother is descended.

His father was the late Mr. John Caven, a sound scholar and a very worthy man, who was by profession a school teacher. The late Mr. Caven was a member of the United Secession Church, which, by its union, in 1840, with the "Relief" Church, as it was called, formed the United Presbyterian Church an organization which still retains a separate corporate existence in Scotland and the United States, though it has long since lost it in Canada and some of the other colonies, owing to successive unions between it and other Presbyterian bodies. Not being a member of the Established Church of Scotland, Mr. Caven was in those days ineligible for the position of a parish schoolmaster, but he had no difficulty in obtaining pupils, and enjoyed a creditable reputation alike as a sound scholar and a successful instructor. He emigrated from Wigtonshire to Canada in the summer of 1847, and for a short time took up his abode near Galt, Ontario, in the township of North Dumfries. After a time he removed to the neighbourhood of St. Mary's, where he continued to reside down to the time of his death a few months since. He resumed his labours in the work of education after his arrival in Canada, first as a teacher, and afterwards as a school superintendent, and was greatly beloved for his amiability and uprightness of character.

His son, the subject of this memoir, received his early education at the school kept by his father, in the parish of Kirkcolm. He was a diligent student, and did full justice to his father's instructions. He chose the ministry as his profession, and when the family emigrated and settled in Dumfries, he began his studies under the auspices of the United Presbyterian Church, [Pg 191]which had been planted in Western Canada, largely through the instrumentality of the Rev. William Fraser, of Bondhead, and the Rev. Alexander Mackenzie, of Goderich, both of whom came as missionaries from Nova Scotia. The educational institutions of the country were not in a very forward state in those days. The Presbyterian body had at that time no regular collegiate institution of its own, and candidates for the ministry were forced to content themselves with such appliances as could be provided. The training of students was entrusted to the late Rev. William Proudfoot, of London father of the present Vice-Chancellor and the Rev. Mr. Mackenzie above mentioned. Mr. Caven devoted himself assiduously to the prescribed literary and theological course under the direction of those venerable men. During the academical year of 1850-51 he studied in Toronto, and completed his course by reading for another year. He was licensed to preach in the early part of 1852, by the old Flamboro' Presbytery, and in October of the same year he was ordained and inducted into the pastorate of the charge known as St. Mary's and Downie. At one period in his career as a student he was engaged for a short time in the work of teaching, and during 1855 and 1856 he spent nearly a year in Scotland for the benefit of his health, without, however, surrendering his pastoral charge. These were the only interruptions which occurred in his work as a student and minister until 1865, when the Synod appointed him and his present colleague, Professor Gregg, to fill, during alternate terms, the chair of Exegetical Theology and Biblical Criticism, which had been vacated by Professor Young in the previous year. The appointment of Professor of the same Department was permanently conferred upon him in 1866, and from that time to the present he has continued to occupy that position. As a teacher of Exegetics, he has from the commencement of his incumbency been noted for his great moderation and candour in stating the opinions which he feels bound to controvert, not less than by his firm adhesion to views of Biblical interpretation held in common by all Evangelical churches, as well as those which are more distinctively characteristic of his own. The truth, as he holds it, and as the Presbyterian Church holds it, has no more fearless and uncompromising defender, and few more efficient.

In 1870, Dr. Willis, who was Principal of the college, resigned that position, and was succeeded by Professor Caven, under the title of Chairman of the College Board. This title, in 1873, was abandoned for that of Principal, which position and title he still holds by appointment of the General Assembly. When an effort was made to procure a new edifice for the college he was chosen chairman of the committee appointed to canvass for funds, and in this capacity he, in company with his colleague, Professor Gregg, spent two summers in making a tour through the Province of Ontario. Mainly through their exertions the building fund had by the end of that time risen to nearly $100,000, all of which, together with about $30,000 since raised, has been expended on the new building, the cornerstone of which was laid in April, 1874. The college was occupied for the first time during the academical year of 1875-76. There is also in existence in connection with the college the nucleus of an endowment fund, the principal part of which consists of a bequest of $40,000 from the late Mr. William Hall, of Peterboro', who died intestate, but whose well-known intentions in the matter were carried out by his heirs-at-law in a manner as creditable to them as it will doubtless prove beneficial to the institution. The endowment fund at the present time amounts to about $52,000.

Principal Caven has always been a zealous advocate of the union of the various branches [Pg 192]of the Presbyterian Church. By the amalgamation of the Free and United Presbyterian Churches of Canada in 1861 he became a minister of what was for the next fourteen years known as the Canada Presbyterian Church. He was appointed a member of the Union Committee of that body when an amalgamation between it and the Presbyterian Church of Canada in connection with the Church of Scotland was first projected, and no one person did more to bring the negotiations to a successful termination than he. He was Moderator of the Canada Presbyterian Church in 1875, and at the Union it devolved upon him, in his official capacity, to sign the Articles of Union in the name of the Church.

Though not past middle age, and though neither a brilliant nor a showy orator, Principal Caven has won a high reputation, not only as Principal of one of the most important of our educational institutions, but as a preacher, a member of church courts, a scholar and a thinker. Persons thoroughly capable of forming an unbiassed opinion have declared that as a debater he is unrivalled in the Presbyterian Church. It is said that "Having first clearly thought out his own view of the matter in hand, he has the faculty of presenting it in a singularly effective way for the consideration of others. His arguments are invariably characterized by an amount of lucidity and a freedom from sophistry which are well calculated to give weight to his utterances, and which, combined with a considerable amount of forensic skill, and the well-known intellectual sincerity of the speaker, seldom fail to win a substantial victory for the side which is so fortunate as to secure his advocacy. Although one of the most immovable and uncompromising of ecclesiastics in all matters where a principle is at stake, Principal Caven is at the same time one of the gentlest, most retiring, and most unassuming of men, his great influence being the result of no conscious striving after it on his part; while his manner is the perfect embodiment of quiet power."

Principal Caven takes a deep, if unobtrusive interest in all questions affecting the public welfare, and is specially interested in educational matters. In 1877 he was elected to the Presidency of the Ontario Teachers' Association, as successor to Professor Goldwin Smith. This position he still retains. He was appointed Chairman of one of the sederunts of the General Presbyterian Council, which met in Edinburgh, Scotland, in July, 1877.

In July, 1856, he married Miss Goldie, of Greenfields, near Ayr, in the county of Waterloo, Ontario. He has a family of seven children.2a

6284 Margaret Cavers Richmond was born in Roxburghshire, Scotland, November 24, 1832, the daughter of Adam and Janet Cavers. Adam was for some years in the British Army and came near being "one of the soldiers of on that memorable day was at some distance from the scene of action, and though they moved by forced marches, when they arrived on the field the battle was over, the victory won, and Napoleon had started on his long and dismal journey to St. Helena. Not many years after young Cavers settled down to family life in Scotland, and he and his wife became the parents of ten children, and of the ten Margaret was the last to leave the world, having lived 87 years lacking 8 days. Adam seems to have been a deeply religious man. His daughter told someone that she remembered her father praying most earnestly for his family and especially for the salvation of his children.

When about twenty Margaret came with a brother and a sister to Ontario, Canada, and February 18, 1858 was married to Mathew Richmond at Ayr, Ontario. After living ten [JMR:years] in that land they came west, and crossed the Mississippi near Lansing, Ia. where one or two of her brothers had been living for some time. Mr. Richmond with his little family started west in a wagon over northern Iowa. He told me that they arrived Thursday at Decorah, Friday at Howard Center, and by Saturday night reached Burr Oak in Mitchell county. They rested, of course, over Sabbath and on Monday arrived at Ellington, Hancock county. Tuesday at Buffalo Forks, and by Wednesday night were at E.B. Campbell's in Armstrong Grove Township. Mr. Richmond had been here the year before and had secured section 34 at Government prices, but he settled with his family on section 36, near the county line.

They were industrious and economical and prosperity came their way. The log house was replaced by a large and modern residence, and here they lived until the spring of 1897 when they moved to the town of Armstrong. In early days, of course, on the farm, they were familiar with pioneer life with its pleasing as well as its trying features. In early [JMR: "days"] both had become members of the Presbyterian church and in Armstrong and vicinity this church owes more for its success to them than to any other couple. Mr. Richmond was elected elder, and the presbytery of Ft. Dodge conferred a special honor upon him by sending him as a delegate to the General Assembly at Los Angeles in 1903. Mrs. Richmond accompanied him and they both greatly enjoyed the trip. We must not forget Mrs. Richmond's services to the church. There was not much of the 'public' about her. I do not think she was prominent in sunday school, or as a 'missionary worker'. She was retiring, modest, humble; there was nothing of the "modern woman" about her. But at home Mrs. Richmond was a queen. One feature we must mention especially. She will long be remembered for the entertainment and encouragement she gave to ministers of the gospel, who always found the most cordial and sincere welcome to her home and to her table. Her service to the church in this line is remarkable, and she kept this up for 20 or 30 years, when advancing years suggested the propriety of leaving the farm for a more quiet life in the town.

In recent years advancing age was beginning to tell upon her, and after suffering considerably, especially during the last three months, on Sabbath November 16, about noon she entered, as we believe, the great Sabbath rest, the rest which remaineth for the people of God. She longed to depart and be with Christ, and one day she said,-showing the simplicity of her faith- "Jesus said that he could ask the Father for 12 legions of angels. I know, he can send one for me."

On Saturday, about twenty-four hours before the end, her old neighbor and friend, Mrs. Jane Dundas, from Estherville came to see her, to whom she said, "I want you to pray for me and pray loud so I can hear you." A very sincere prayer was offered, then the patient being very weary, turned and said in a friendly way, Now Good-bye.

Numerous friends have testified to the help and inspiration her life has been to them. The local paper said of her,"The life of a woman like Mrs. Richmond does much to prove there is a spark of the divine fire in man upon this earth, and that there is a better realm where such spirits must go and whence they have come. For they are not of the earth."

In the sermon I observed that Mrs. Richmond was one of the old selttlers and that probably very few of them were left. At the cemetery after the burial, Mrs. Fish and Mrs. Dundas came to me and said they are the only ones living who were here and were heads of families when the Richmonds came in October, 1868. The Fish family came in September and Mrs. Dundas was married here the spring before.

The pall bearers were her two sons, William and Walter, and four nephews, William and James Weir of Estherville, George Stewart of Armstrong, and Adam Cavers of Village Creek, Ia.

Mrs. Richmond leaves to mourn their loss her husband, six children, and fifteen grandchildren. All of her children are living in or near Armstrong except John who lives at Waterloo.

On the Passing of a Pioneer
By George N. Luccock

Recently at Armstrong, Iowa one died who had an unusual share in development of Presbyterian Christianity in northwest Iowa. Mrs. Mathew Richmond with her husband who survives her and who became the first Presbyterian elder in that region; went to Emmet County; Iowa in a very early day when the prairies were roadless; fenceless almost homeless and altogether churchless. Born Presbyterian; it was her dream or hope and her unceasing prayer that God would send a Presbyterian minister to her new country. As I was the unexpected and at the first quite disappointing answer to that prayer; I crave space for a bit of church history; which is also reminiscence; in Mrs. Richmond's praise.

Dr. A.K. Baird; synodical superintendent; himself Scotch and sympathizing with this desire of the Scotch Richmonds for a Presbyterian share in the religious developoment of the promising prairies; requisitioned the seminaries for summer students. So he sent me to Richmonds.

It did seem a mysterious providence. The dear lady's idea of a Presbyterian minister was definite and clear. He should naturally be tall of course he would be dignified; and in all the virtues and example to youth. With what pride and expectancy did she look forward to next Sunday; when all the neighbors would assemble in the schoolhouse to see and hear a real Presbyterian minister! Alas that the spirit of moral should be proud! The minister proved to be a boy. He was not tall and he was fat.

Before a week had gone she made him feel that her heart was glad he had been chosen of God to come. Her home became his home; and what a home it was! Just a cabin; with two rooms and an attic. It was a large family too. But there was always room; not for just one more but for as many as might come; even strangers stranded on the prairies. I think the record was the sheltering of sixteen wayfaring guests for a night. Later in prosperity; a commodius; modern house was built; but it could not surpass the charm of that hospitality cabin.

It is not my purpose to write an obituary eulogy; but to bring into the publicity of these pages; which first as The Interior and since as The Continent she had cherished for more than a generation; the name of a woman rare in her quiet faithfulness and; with her good husband the real founder of Presbyterianism in that part of northwest Iowa. It was my privilege last winter to have an hour's visit with her; then in her eighty-seventh year. She had never expected to reach old age; but her talk of the goodness of God through the lengthening years; her joy in seeing the development of the country to which in her youth she had come as a pioneer; her happiness in recalling the beginnings and growth of her own church; and her fine readiness to go hence whenever God willed-all was like the benediction of a mother's hand on the head of her first pastor in that new country. And many other such like men and women joined with the Richmonds in helping along the kingdom there.

6315 Chaplin family sells Canadian General-Tower business
Nov 30, 2012

CAMBRIDGE It is the end of an era for Canadian General-Tower, a Cambridge plant that has been in the Chaplin family since the early 1900s.

Rick Chaplin, chief executive of Canadian General-Tower and part of a fifth generation of Chaplin family industrialists in Cambridge, announced on Friday that the company was sold to Holcan Investments of Burlington.

Canadian General-Tower on Middleton Street in Cambridge is a major producer of coated fabrics and flexible polyvinyl chloride films, used in everything from vinyl trim for the auto industry and swimming pool liners to roofing membranes and environmental containment products. It is one of the oldest operating industries in Cambridge.

... The Chaplain family industrial roots go back to William Chaplin, who in the 1800s got into tool and wooden wheel manufacturing. His son, J.D. Chaplin, took over the Victoria Wheel Works factory in Galt and renamed it to Canadian General Rubber Company in 1927.

The company then passed to Gordon Chaplin, who was also a one-time member of Parliament for Waterloo South. When he died, his son Jim took over and led the company for decades, growing it from $3 million in annual sales to $300 million and establishing the company's presence throughout Canada and in the United States.

Jim's son Rick took over as executive chair of the company about two years ago. Jim's daughter, Jan Chaplin, had also been involved in the business as president and chief executive officer but stepped down in 2009.

During the war years, the company was a major supplier of coated fabrics including rain wear, and then got into consumer products such as shower curtains, wall coverings and table cloths....rsimone@therecord.com1a

_________________________


The village of Ayr, along with the rest of South Waterloo, was saddened on Saturday by the death of the constituency's member of parliament, Gordon Chaplin of Galt. Mr. Chaplin, 57, who held the seat for the Progressive Conservatives, had been in poor health for several months, but his condition became critical only three weeks ago. A resident of Galt since 1936, Mr. Chaplin was a prominent industrialist, holding the position of president and general manager of Canadian General Tower. He resigned the latter position in 1962 to devote more time to his political responsibilities. He began his political career in 1945 when he was elected as Conservative member for this riding to the Ontario Legislature, where he served until 1948. He was first elected to the Commons in 1961 and had held the seat since. The funeral at Trinity Anglican Church, Galt, on Monday was largely attended by friends and associates. Among the dignitaries present was Rt. Hon. John Diefenbaker. Leader of the Opposition.

6316 Chaplin continued family legacy

CAMBRIDGE '97 When Jim Chaplin was forced to step back from the company he built into a $300-million enterprise, the late Cambridge industrialist turned to the one person he could trust most '97 his son.

Rick Chaplin had been a part of Canadian General-Tower his whole adult life, and as the fifth generation in his family to manage the company, it seemed the big factory and the vinyl products it produced just ran in his blood.

Chaplin, who passed away suddenly last week, is remembered for shepherding the family business through a difficult transition, ending in its eventual sale in 2012 when he was the CEO.

"He had dad's confidence," said Jan Chaplin, one of his three sisters. "It was really important when he took the helm, because our father was really challenged by his Parkinson's disease. He really needed someone he could trust by his side. And he chose Rick."

Chaplin, 58, will be mourned Thursday at 2 p.m. at Trinity Anglican Church in Cambridge, as friends, family and former employees say goodbye.

As the only son to Jim and Janet Chaplin, Chaplin was kept busy running his family's affairs after Canadian General-Tower was sold, while tending to his ailing father and mother. Selling the business was one of the most difficult things he ever had to do.

"It was excruciating," his sister said. "All the wolves were out and everybody had an agenda. But Rick was very savvy to navigate around all that stuff. He did an amazing job."

The company Chaplin ran had been around since the early 1900s, but his family's industrial roots go back to William Chaplin, who in the 1800s got into tool and wooden wheel manufacturing......

CHAPLIN, Richard Robert Gordon January 12, 1959 - September 13, 2017 Dear Rick, There must have been a very good reason for your unexpected passing.

Perhaps it was because you had learned what you were meant to learn. It may not be for us to know 'Why?; perhaps it's enough to know your memory is heartfelt. Thank you for being such a beautiful person. Thank you for giving us a legacy of laughter, compassion, love, courage, calm, and cuisine. Dear son of Janet Chaplin Young and the late James Dhu Chaplin. Beloved brother of Elizabeth Chaplin (Gord McCulloch), Jan Chaplin (Jean Rablat) and Diana Chaplin Leitl.

____________________________________

Death of John Chapman, Esq., Reeve of Hespeler
- We deeply regret to state that the illness with which this well-known gentleman has been afflicted for the past few months has terminated fatally, and that, too, in a strange land, and under circumstances calculated to enhance the grief of his family and many friends.

As our readers are aware from statements in the Reporter, Mr. Chapman, who had lately retired from business, intended to start in May last for Manitoba with his second son, for the purpose of taking up land there. Before the time for starting arrived, however, Mr. Chapman was seized with illness, and was unable to carry out his intention. He recovered sufficiently, however, to attend the June meeting of the County Council and it was hoped by his friends that the crisis of his disorder was passed. He shortly afterwards went to St. Catharines to take advantage of the baths? In that city; and returning somewhat improved, he believed that his strength was sufficiently recruited to permit him to carry out his cherished intention of visiting Manitoba. He accordingly started for Winnipeg about two weeks ago; and we learn that upon reaching St. Paul he felt satisfied that his health would be thoroughly recruited by the trip. This improvement did not continue his arrival in Winnipeg; but even on reaching that city he felt able to visit the land he last purchased. What occurred there is of course not known, as all the information as yet obtained has been received by telegraph; but certain it is that on Tuesday evening his family received a telegram from Mr. William Hespeler, stating that Mr. Chapman had arrived in that city dangerously ill, and that this was followed on Wednesday by another message stating that he had died at St. Boniface, opposite Winnipeg, a 7 o'clock on Tuesday evening. This is all that is known up to the time of writing.

Mr. Chapman was probably one of the best known residents of the County of Waterloo. For many years he kept a dry goods store in Galt, afterwards removing to Hespeler, where he was appointed Postmaster and carried on a general business. About six years ago he was elected Reeve of that village, an office which he held at the time of his death. He was a valuable member of the County Council, and was universally respected by all who had the pleasure of his acquaintance. He would be in the neighborhood of his 60th year at the time of his death.

It is probable, if the necessary arrangements can be made; that Mr. Chapman's remains will be brought to Hespeler for interment; but of this nothing certain is known at the time of writing.3a

FUNERAL OF THE LATE JOHN CHAPMAN, ESQ. - the remains of this gentleman - who died at Winnipeg, Man., in July last, while on a visit to that province - arrived at Hespeler on Friday last, and were interred in the RC Cemetery in that village on Sabbath morning. The remains were conveyed in a metal coffin, hermetically sealed, with a outside box. The funeral services were conducted by the Rev. Father Fleck, of Guelph, whose address was eminently suited to the occasion. The funeral was very largely attended, parties being present from all the neighboring towns, villages and townships. The Hespeler band preceded the cortege from deceased's late residence to the church, playing the "Dead March." The occasion was one of universal solemnity, and the large concourse of mourners expressed universal regret at the death of Mr. Chapman, and their sympathy for his family in their painful bereavement.4a

6336 CHARLTON, JOHN, farmer, businessman, politician, office holder, and social reformer; b. 3 Feb. 1829 in Garbuttsville (Garbutt), N.Y., eldest son of Adam Charlton and Ann Gray; m. 1 Nov. 1854 Ella (Ellen) Gray in Charlotteville Township, Upper Canada; they had no children; d. 11 Feb. 1910 in Lynedoch, Ont.

Born on the family farm at Garbuttsville, near Caledonia, John Charlton relocated with his parents in 1832 to Cattaraugus County, N.Y. His father continued farming and was employed as financial manager for the Holland Land Company in Ellicottville. Charlton was educated at the McLaren Grammar School in Caledonia and at the Springville Academy. In addition to working on his father's farm, he learned to set type at the Cattaraugus Whig of Ellicottville. After a year in a general store there, he read law briefly and may have studied medicine for a short period. In 1846 he travelled by lumber raft down the Allegheny and Ohio rivers to Cincinnati, Ohio.

In 1849 Charlton and his family moved to Upper Canada, settling on a farm south of Ayr, in Waterloo County. For the next four years he farmed with his father; in his spare time he organized a circulating library and a debating society. He had come to Canada with the intention of leaving for the western United States as soon as possible. In 1853, as he was planning to migrate to Minnesota, he instead accepted an offer from George Gray (a relative of his mother and his future father-in-law) to join him in opening a general store in Norfolk County at Wilson Mills, near the Lynedoch post office. The white pine in the area was of high quality and, in addition to selling goods, Gray and Charlton traded in timber. With the advent of reciprocity between the United States and Canada in 1854, their firm soon entered the timber business on a formal basis, in association with Smith and Westover of Tonawanda, N.Y.

Business commitments made it impossible for Charlton to join his parents and brothers when, in 1855, they left for Iowa but soon afterwards he visited them. Although he considered himself a protectionist in trade, the trip convinced him that Canada needed better access to American markets so that it might share the commercial advantages enjoyed by Iowa and other western states. He now regarded Canada as equal or superior to the United States in most respects, and his sojourn in Iowa, he claimed, cured him of "western fever."

In 1858 Charlton's brother George returned from Iowa to replace him in the general store at Lynedoch, allowing John to devote more time to the timber business. Charlton became head of the Canadian operations of Smith and Westover the following year. He purchased the firm's Canadian business in 1861, in partnership with James Ramsdell of Clarence, N.Y., and was joined at Lynedoch by another brother, William Andrew. He had bought out Ramsdell by 1865 and was in business on his own at Lynedoch and Tonawanda. In 1868 he was joined in the lumber and timber business by his brother Thomas. Their firm, J. and T. Charlton, would operate under this name until John Charlton's death in 1910. In partnership with Alonzo Chesbrough of Suspension Bridge (Niagara Falls), N.Y., Charlton expanded his cutting operations into the United States, acquiring large tracts of pine in eastern Michigan.

Charlton had first held public office in 1856-57 as a Charlotteville Township councillor. His interest in politics was rekindled by the build-up to the American Civil War. In 1860 he delivered a lecture in Lynedoch - "Does the Bible sanction slavery?" - which brought him into prominence, and he continued to give it throughout the war. He believed the answer to his question was no, but felt that many Canadians, particularly Tories, sympathized with the Confederacy. Around 1866 he organized a circulating library and founded a debating society called the Lynedoch Lyceum. Local Tories accused it of treason for its frank debates on reciprocity and annexation to the United States.

In 1872 Charlton sought and received the federal Liberal nomination in Norfolk North, despite the objections of some Grits who argued that, as an American, he had "annexation proclivities" that would harm his chances of election. Returned to the House of Commons that year, he would hold Norfolk North until his resignation from politics in 1904. During this period the Liberals were in power from 1873 to 1878 and again from 1896. As a government backbencher in the 1870s Charlton served on the committee appointed to investigate Canada's economic problems. On trade policy his shifting views reflected the divisions within his party [see Alexander Mackenzie*]. Despite his speeches in the house in favour of reciprocal trade with the United States, he could sympathize with those urban Liberals and manufacturers who, he believed, sought protective tariffs out of self-interest. By 1876 he was advocating an increase in duties to satisfy the party's protectionist wing. In the two years before the federal election of 1878, however, he was a tireless campaigner for reciprocity, the policy supported by party leaders.

Charlton adopted this position at some cost: in attacking his views, Tory opponents again took aim at his American origin. In his unpublished autobiography Charlton recorded, "I was often made to feel the power over the Canadian mind, of narrow bigotry and senseless prejudice." After the Liberal government's defeat in 1878, Charlton continued to serve his party faithfully. By January 1882, with an election expected, he and George William Ross* had formed its committee on campaign literature. Publishing supplements for county newspapers from the office of the Ottawa Free Press, they selected extracts from "speeches pertinent to issues of the day and original contributions from members of the House." In fact, Chariton later noted, he and Ross were the authors of much of this political boilerplate.

By the mid 1880s Chariton, a prominent member of the Canadian Forestry Association, had come to be known in the commons as "the member for Michigan" because of his forestry interests there and his agitation for commercial union with the United States [see Erastus Wiman]. In 1884 and 1885 J. and T. Chariton wound up its operations in Norfolk County and Michigan and began working limits on the north shore of Georgian Bay as a new source of supply for the firm's factory at Tonawanda. In addition, Charlton and his brother William purchased limits at the headwaters of* the Blind and Serpent rivers in the Algoma District. In 1888 Charlton was appointed chairman of the royal commission established by the Ontario government to examine the province's mineral resources and their exploitation. In its report of 1890 the commission called for an end to "commercial belligerency" between Canada and the United States.

Chariton's business took him to the United States several times a year, and he had cultivated connections in several state legislatures and in Washington. In 1890, after Canadian lumbermen had persuaded their federal government to remove duties on American lumber, in return for favourable American duties on Canadian lumber, Chariton lobbied successfully for additional reciprocal-trade concessions made possible by the McKinley tariff in the United States. He visited Washington again in 1892 and 1893, as a representative of the Liberal party, for further negotiations on the trade in forest products.

Although trade relations occupied much of Charlton's time, his religious beliefs and strong convictions about moral reform also found frequent expression, both commercially and politically. A member of the Presbyterian Church from the 1850s and a confirmed Sabbatarian, he did not permit labour in his lumber camps on the sabbath and he managed to confine his business travels to the other six days of the week, returning home to Lynedoch by Sunday. For Charlton public morality and national strength were most definitely connected. In parliament in 1879 he seconded the motion by Thomas Christie calling for stricter observance of the Lord's Day by agencies of the dominion government. Charlton argued that Britain, as an avowedly Christian nation, had enacted similar laws to secure religious liberty. Within a decade the call in Canada had escalated to a drive for a national Lord's Day observance act. In 1888 Charlton was elected vice-president at the inaugural meeting in Ottawa of the Lord's Day Alliance, which drew support from Presbyterians. In 1894 Chariton argued in the commons that to prevent great social upheaval, including labour violence, it was necessary to apply "Christian principles . . . and the first step to take in applying them is to recognize God's law, that the Sabbath Day is to be remembered and kept holy, and the labourer is to be secured in the possession of his right to enjoy . . . a day of rest."

On 20 Feb. 1882, driven by "a profound sense of public duty" and evidently drawing on the views of his church and on legislation in Britain and some American jurisdictions, Charlton had introduced a bill in parliament to provide for the punishment of adultery and seduction under criminal law. The bill proposed prison sentences for men convicted of having sexual intercourse with girls under 16, for teachers who seduced female students, and for men who seduced women through the promise of marriage. Charlton noted that when introduced the bill was "scarcely accorded a hearing, and was made the butt of ridicule and discourteous remarks." Prime Minister Sir John A. Macdonald* facetiously observed that the legislation would cause thousands of young men to leave the country. The bill died on the order paper at the dissolution of the house for the election of 1882. Charlton reintroduced it in 1883, only to see the section on adultery removed by a select committee, and the amended bill laid over by the Senate. The following year it was again blocked in the upper house. Bolstered by a resolution of the Presbyterian General Assembly in 1885 that advocated extended protection against seduction, Charlton put the bill forward once again in 1886. "The degradation of women is a crime against society," he said. "The pure Christian home is the only safe foundation for a free and enlightened state. Vice in the shape of social immorality is the greatest danger that can threaten the state." At the request of John Sparrow David Thompson*, the minister of justice, the bill was referred to a special committee for modifications proposed by his department. Designed to mollify opponents of the bill, the amendments weakened its force, requiring, as they did, corroborating evidence for charges of seduction. The amended bill, which became known as the Charlton Seduction Act and was passed by the house on 14 April and by the Senate on 13 May, provided that a man convicted of sexual intercourse with a girl under 16 be sentenced to three years in prison. Although the act would lead to relatively few prosecutions, it did establish Charlton's reputation as a moral reformer and brought gender relations further into the sphere of criminal law.

Charlton's religion also influenced his views on French-English relations in Canada. In 1886 he voted with the Tories against the motion by Liberal leader Edward Blake* condemning the execution of Louis Riel*. Shortly after Blake's five-and-a-half-hour discourse on the subject, Charlton, himself a logical and concise speaker, had proposed a motion to limit the length of speeches in the house. He also angered Blake's successor, Wilfrid Laurier*, when in 1889 he thwarted Laurier's attempts to limit his role in the parliamentary debate over the Jesuits' Estates Act [see Honoré Mercier*]. Supporting the call for federal disallowance of this Quebec statute, Charlton declared: "Now these are British provinces. The design was that these should be Anglo-Saxon commonwealths." Thus "the tendency to foster an intense spirit of French nationality" should be resisted. As one of only 13 mps to vote in favour of disallowance - the "noble thirteen," in the words of Macdonald - Charlton found himself increasingly estranged from the Liberal leadership. Indeed, he shared the platform with Conservative maverick D'Alton McCarthy* at a meeting to honour the "noble thirteen" in Toronto on 22 April 1889. Although he became a member of the Equal Rights Association, formed in June under the direction of William Caven, Charlton ultimately refused to sign its manifesto. He resented McCarthy's partisan attacks on the Ontario Grits and, after assuring Premier Oliver Mowat of his support in the provincial election campaign of 1890, he accused McCarthy of trying to turn the ERA into a "donkey-engine of Toryism." Nevertheless, Charlton had come to believe that the Liberal party was now only the lesser of two evils. With "a French Catholic leader and under the manipulation of such unscrupulous machine politicians as J. D. Edgar . . . I have not the utmost confidence in the future of the Reform party," he wrote. At the same time his own credibility in parliament may have diminished. On drawing the commons' attention in 1890 to incidents in which French Canadian mobs had driven a female Protestant evangelist back across the Ottawa River from Hull, Charlton was attacked by both Macdonald and Blake for trying to score political points.
In 1895-96 public debate in Canada was dominated by Manitoba's elimination of public funding for Catholic schools. Siding with the provincial Liberal government of Thomas Greenway in its opposition to remedial legislation, Charlton encouraged Laurier to do the same. Despite their differing views on the question, Laurier and Charlton met in the spring of 1896 to discuss the impending federal election. Laurier, who believed that the Liberals stood a good chance of winning, asked Charlton if there was a cabinet position he would like. Charlton told him that he would prefer to be made commissioner to the United States. The Liberals were victorious in June and Charlton was accordingly dispatched to Washington to push free trade. The assignment, however, may have been only a means to satisfy the free-trade wing of the Liberal party, for its leadership was, in fact, moving away from reciprocity [see George Hope Bertram*]. Charlton returned in December, his mission foiled by re-emerging protectionist sentiment in both countries. In 1897 Charlton went back to Washington in an unofficial capacity to lobby against the Dingley tariff, which restored protective duties, particularly on forest products [see John Bertram], but he succeeded only in embarrassing the Laurier government. He was nevertheless appointed in 1898 to the joint Canadian-American high commission, where he encountered entrenched American resistance to tariff concessions.

By the time of the general election of 1900, Charlton had become deeply disillusioned with the Liberal party. He believed that it had failed to keep its promises on such matters as prohibiting the granting of land, timber, and mineral rights to mps and friends, an issue that had claimed his attention since the 1880s. He was bitter too over the influx of new faces into Laurier's cabinet. Charlton made his feelings clear to his constituents, and in so doing won the support of many Conservatives. According to his autobiography, he made an agreement with the Tories whereby he was able to run unopposed in Norfolk North in return for his promise not to campaign for Liberals in other ridings. By 1904 ill health forced him to retire from politics, and he did not run for election that year. He had continued to be an active businessman. In 1899, with his brother William and Thomas Pitts, he had formed another timber company. The following year his early company, J. and T. Charlton, opened a sawmill in Collingwood, Ont. He died in 1910 as a result of a stroke at his home in Lynedoch.

Politics in 19th-century Canada was about business and religion. John Charlton's career reflects that fact. As a lumberman who sold most of his product in the United States, he naturally sought better access to the American market. As a Presbyterian, he became the parliamentary agent for his church, pressing for legislation which reflected its stance on seduction and the sabbath. Although the Charlton Seduction Act of 1886 was a weak version of his original bill, he viewed it as his major legislative achievement. In many ways, Charlton was an outsider: his concern for the protection of women met with ridicule, he was frequently subjected to disparaging remarks about his American origin, and he became increasingly isolated from the mainstream of the Liberal party, both as a Protestant stalwart and as a free trader. Charlton's politics flowed from his personal interests, but throughout most of his career those who shared his concerns were seldom in power.

JOHN CHARLTON, M.P.
Lynedoch, Ontario

It is a recognized axiom among parliamentarians that it is in Opposition that leaders are developed. In the comparatively long time in which the Liberals in the House of Commons have sat to the left of Mr. Speaker, a number of men of pronounced individuality and great ability have attained their political maturity, and have fitted themselves for office, then the party shall succeed in obtaining a parliamentary majority. Among these none is more prominent in the eyes of his fellow members or in the eyes of the people than the subject of this sketch. The Charltons are an old Northumberland family whose genealogical records date back to the Norman ear of English history. Adam Charlton, of Newcastle-on-Tyne, came to America in 1824, and settled in the State of New York. He married Ann Gray, whose people came from Northumberland, and who was born at Gorham, N.Y. The couple lived for a time near Caledonia, N.Y., where their son John was born on February 3, 1829. Three years later the family removed to Ellicottville, where Adam Charlton entered the employment of the Holland Land Company. At the same time he carried on farming, and John Charlton as he grew up assisted his father in its management. He attended school also and got a very fair education at the McLaren grammar school, Caledonia, and at the Springville academy. When he was sixteen years old his father moved from the farm into Ellicottville. He spent a good deal of his spare time in the office of the Cattarangus Whig newspaper, where he learned to set type, and he was for over a year a clerk in a general store.

In 1849, when John Charlton was twenty years of age, the family removed to Canada, settling near the village of Ayr, in Waterloo county, where the father again embarked in the vocation of farming, assisted by his son. Three or four years later, when the young lad was about leaving for Minnesota, Mr. George Gray, of Charlotteville, Ont., proposed to him a partnership in a general store to be opened at what had been known as Wilson's Mills, where the post office of Lynedoch had lately been opened. The result of this was the establishment of a firm destined to prosper, and the opening of a career in mercantile life which has made Mr. Charlton a man of considerable means. The capital of the firm, including the cost of the building which they had constructed for their business, was about $1,800. Besides the money capital, however, there was sound business ability, capacity for work, and excellent opportunities. Pine timber was abundant in the district in those days, and Messrs. Gray and Charlton branched out from their regular business into lumbering in connection with Messrs. Smith, Westover & Co., a wealthy and reputable firm of Tonawanda, N.Y. In 1859, Mr. Charlton sold out his interest in the store to engage in the lumber business solely. He was engaged by Messrs. Smith, Westover & Co., to take charge of their business in Canada. Mr. Charlton discharged his duties to the thorough satisfaction of his employers, and when, in 1861, they retired from business in Canada, they gave him the opportunity to buy out their interest on favourable terms. Mr. Charlton then formed a partnership with Mr. James Ramsdell, of Clarence, N.Y., to carry on the business, and the firm of Ramsdell & Charlton continued in successful operation for several years.

In 1865, Mr. Charlton purchased his partner's interest, and for some years carried on business on his own account. Subsequently he extended his operations considerably in partnership with Mr. Alonzo Chesborough, of Toledo, Ohio, the firm of Chesborough & Charlton being one of the best known in the State of Michigan. Besides his lumber business in connection with Mr. Chesborough, Mr. Charlton, in partnership with is brother, Mr. Thomas Charlton, carried on an extensive trade in timber, first in Canada and later in Michigan. The business of the former firm was gradually reduced, and had been about to wound up when, in 1887, Mr. Chesborough, the senior partner, died. At present, Mr. Charlton's business is centered wholly in the firm of J.& T. Charlton. As a business man, Mr. Charlton has exhibited qualities of enterprise and judgement that would alone entitle him to rank among the prominent men of the country. It is in public life, however, that his most noteworthy work has been done, and his abilities have been shown at their best. Mr. Charlton's first pubic experience was as a member of the township council of Charlotteville. He was elected for two successive years, but the pressure of business prevented him from devoting much time to the affairs of the council, and soon compelled his retirement.

Mr. Charlton had always taken a warm interest in politics, and had done good work for the Liberal party, with which he was closely identified. He had developed good abilities as a speaker by taking part in pubic meetings of various kinds. His activity in connection with church and Sunday-school work did much also in this direction. He had attracted a good deal of attention by several lectures he delivered in various places in Norfolk county, and the Western peninsula generally. The first of these was entitled "Political Aspects of American Slavery," first delivered in 1861. In this lecture Mr. Charlton took the grounds that the South having gone to war to prevent the restriction of slavery, the upholders of the union need not hope for better than a series of reverses until they declared for the abolition of slavery altogether. The utterance was prophetic, for the fortunes of war changed in favour of the North with the Emancipation Proclamation. In 1872 the Liberals nominated Mr. Charlton for the Commons for North Norfolk. He accepted the nomination, and took the field against Mr. Aquilla Walsh, a prominent and experienced politician, and for some time previously the Intercolonial railway commissioner. The contest was one of the fiercest the riding had ever seen. Both sides fought with determination which left the issue in doubt to the last moment. North Norfolk had been Conservative before this election, and this fact, together with the prominence of their candidate, gave the ministerialists great hopes of success. The count, however, showed a majority of fifty for Charlton, a result which was received with the greatest enthusiasm, not only by the Reformers in the country, but by their sympathizers in every part of the Dominion. From the time of his entrance into the House of Commons, Mr. Charlton took a prominent part in the work of legislation. While he has made himself known as one of the strongest advocates of the principles of his party, he has also manifested a determination to go beyond the line of mere party strife, and to make his position useful in the direction of social and moral reform. His first important step in Parliament was a business-like proposal that the Government should make a geographical and geological survey of the North-West Territories, the great new country that Canada had recently acquired. In support of this resolution he made a forceful speech, but, of course, as it came from one in Opposition, the proposal was not favourably received. On the Liberals assuming office, the duties of the many able debaters in the ranks were to defend rather than attack. Without forgetting his independence, and without slavishly following the lines laid down by the Government, Mr. Charlton proved an excellent supporter in this respect. To him as assigned the important duty of defending the draft reciprocity treaty, as tentatively arranged by Hon. George Brown with the authorities at Washington. His speech was a masterly effort, and assured him once and for all of the distinguished place he holds in the front rank of parliamentary debaters. Even the leader of the Opposition, the late Sir John A. Macdonald, complimented the member for North Norfolk upon the ability he displayed on this occasion. This was among the most noteworthy of the speeches made by Mr. Charlton during the liberal .

The most important legislation with which his name was associated was a bill for the prevention of cruelty to animals, a well-considered measure which has continued since then with some amendments first proposed by Mr. Charlton himself at a subsequent period. Mr. Charlton also performed the duty of unearthing the scandal of the retention of a large sum of secret service money in the hands of Sir John A. Macdonald after he retired from office. He presented a full and exhaustive report on the subject, which was adopted by the committee of pubic accounts, and by the House. The report was strongly condemnatory of Sir John Macdonald's government. With the return of the Liberals to the opposition side of the House, the duties expected of such men as Mr. Charlton were very laborious. The record of his work since 1878 must, therefore, be confined to only a few of the more prominent points. There are two general divisions of parliamentary work in which Mr. Charlton has been equally prominent. In the first place, as a critic, he is keen, strong and incisive. He not only states clearly and forcibly what he believes to be the fault, but he presents his remedy with decision and with much persuasive power. He is known, also as the promoter of a number of important bills, and he has made a fine record by the success he has achieved through hard, persistent parliamentary fighting. First, as being most important from a political point of view, the trade question may be mentioned. On this point Mr. Charlton's position has, in some respects, changed. He began as a protectionist of a moderate kind, but is now one of the strongest advocates of a pure revenue-tariff policy. He has always been enthusiastically in favour of reciprocal free trade with the United States. On this question, so long ago as 1869, he publicly advocated a zollverein or customs union with the United States. In 1881 he referred the question to a convention of the Liberal electors of the riding of North Norfolk, and by that gathering his position was endorsed, and instructions were given to him to continue his advocacy of the policy. Before the general election of 1887 he urged the adoption of this policy upon the leader of the Liberal party, Hon. Edward Blake, but that gentleman did not see his way to proposing it as the party platform. Nevertheless, after the general election in the first of several bye-elections in Haldimand in 1888, Mr. Charlton squarely advocated Commercial Union, as the proposal came to be called, and also addressed a large meeting of his own constituents at Waterford, his utterances on the subject being received with favour by the people. At a later date the Hon. Wilfred Laurier, who followed Mr. Blake as leader, formally made reciprocity the principal plank in the part platform. Mr. Charlton tried hard to induce his friends to make a declaration for a customs union, representing that only in this way could the revenue difficulty be met. Notwithstanding that the party's platform is Unrestricted Reciprocity, Mr. Charlton makes no secret of his personal opinion that the clearer and more easily explained system of customs union, which obviates the loss of revenue difficulty that will attend Unrestricted Reciprocity, is the true policy for the country and for the Liberal party. In no speeches that he makes does Mr. Charlton display more ability than in those he makes upon trade and fiscal questions. As a leader in the denunciation of extravagance and corruption, whether in high or low places,

Mr. Charlton has rendered his party and his country signal service. In the session of 1885, he called for a return showing the applications for timber limits with notes as to what had been done in each case. The papers were brought down in 1886, a tremendous collection of thirteen or fourteen thousand foolscap pages. With a perseverance, worthy of all praise, Mr. Charlton went through the whole of this material, and having mastered its contents, he presented in a powerful speech a summary of what he had learned. He showed that about twenty-five thousand square miles of territory, a large portion of it in the disputed territory, had been granted by the government by private arrangement and without calling for tenders. Of the grantees a score or more were members of Parliament and senators, and there were, besides, a hundred or more applications granted to outside parties on the application of legislators. Upon the facts thus presented, Mr. Charlton based a resolution declaring that the practice of thus using the public lands to conciliate parliamentary supporters was one destructive of the independence of parliament. The resolution was voted down, but he facts presented in the speech were used with tremendous effect in both the provincial and Dominion election campaigns which followed within twelve months. Another question which, in its time, even overshadowed that of the tariff, was the proposal for the construction of the Canadian Pacific Railway. When the contract with the syndicate was announced in the session of 1880-81, the Liberals opposed it with all their force, not only in the House, but in the country during the short time in the Christmas recess that was available for public agitation. In the forefront of this force fierce war of opinion, Mr. Charlton was conspicuous. He, more clearly than any of his colleagues, outlined a policy which he contended would build the line within a time short enough for all practical purposes. He urged the construction of the road from Lake Superior to the Rocky Mountains, proceeding with such haste only as the progress of settlement might require. This portion completed and a traffic assured, it could be handed over to a company as a bonus for building the other portions of the line. By such a plan, he contended, the country would save at least twenty-five millions in money, and the whole enormous land grant of twenty-five millions of acres of land. The fight over the Franchise Act is one not soon to be forgotten. The effort of the Liberals to compel the modification or withdrawal of the bill when the Government pressed it in the session of 1885 led to the longest session on record. The Opposition, roused to exasperation by the determination of the Government to press the measure through, blocked the progress of the business so as virtually to compel the withdrawal of features which they regarded as objectionable. Mr. Charlton was persistent in his opposition to the measure, and even after its adoption he scored many points in his platform and parliamentary addresses by dwelling upon the costly and cumbrous character of the new law, and upon what he regarded as its essential unfairness. He also introduced the resolution in the section of 1887, squarely demanding the repeal of the act, and has twice introduced a bill to make the provincial franchise in each province the Dominion franchise.

In the session of 1891 he presented a bill to provide that where the provincial voters list was later than the Dominion list, the former should be used in Dominion elections. These were, of course, voted down by the ministerial majority. In connection with this may be mentioned an amendment to the election law which Mr. Charlton has very strongly urged upon the House. The use of the power of spending money on public works, to advance the interests of the dominant party, has become a crying abuse in Canadian politics. Mr. Charlton seeks to meet this evil by a proposal to declare it a corrupt practice within the meaning of the act to give or promise openly or tacitly any public work to any locality with a view to affecting a pending election. This measure he has twice, though vainly, introduced. In no way is the member for North Norfolk better known than by the statute which is commonly known as the Charlton Act. The object of this measure is to protect women against the wiles of unscrupulous men. As first introduced in 1882, this bill was one to declare the seducer a criminal, and punish him accordingly, and to visit with still heavier punishment anyone enticing young girls to disreputable resorts, or seducing a woman in his employ or placed under his guardianship or control. With his usual thoroughness, Mr. Charlton, before presenting the measure, had made himself familiar with the statutes upon this subject throughout the civilized world, and presented to the House such a list of precedents as revoked the expressions of contempt with which his proposal was at first received.

Year after year for four successive sessions did he propose his bill without effect. In the session of 1886, however, he had the gratification of achieving a partial success by seeing his proposal embodied in the statutes in a modified form. In the following year the bill was strengthened on his own suggestion, and as it stands to-day it is a strong protection to youth and innocence, at least against the calculation debauchee and the soulless trafficker in vice. In much the same line as the last named act is Mr. Charlton's bill respecting Sabbath observance. This bill was first presented (backed by numerous petitions from churches and other religious societies, and from individuals), in the session of 1890. Its objects were to prohibit Sunday newspapers and all Sunday work in newspaper offices, save that necessary to issue the paper on Monday; to prohibit canal traffic between six o'clock a.m., and ten a'clock p.m. on Sunday; to regulate railway traffic on Sunday, so as to reduce it to a minimum, and to prohibit Sunday excursions by boat or rail. The bill was among the "slaughtered innocents" at the close of the session. In the following year it met the same fate. But Mr. Charlton has not only his natural determination, inspired by a cause which most men will regard as a worthy one, but also the memory of his own success after repeated defeats, to cause him to persevere. He declares his intention of keeping on with this bill as he did with the other until he succeeds or ceases to be a member of the House. Mr. Charlton was one of the "noble thirteen," as they were called, who voted to condemn the Government for failing to disallow the Jesuits' Estates Act. Ad not only did he vote, but both in the House and on the platform he denounced with eloquence and power what he considered as a great wrong to the people of the whole Dominion. He contended that the question of the act should be referred to the Supreme Court for an opinion as to its constitutionality.

He attempted, on April 30, 1889, to present a resolution in favour of that course, but the Speaker gave the floor to another gentleman who rose at the same time. Mr. Charlton hotly contended at the time, and has always since believed, that a deliberate arrangement had been made to juggle him out of the opportunity he desired, and there were certainly strong reasons for believing that the Prime Minister of that day, Sir John A. Macdonald, put up one of his supporters to "head off" what threatened to be a very awkward proposal. By a singular coincidence, however, Mr. Charlton gained his point by having the subject of reference to the Supreme Court passed upon by the House just one year from the day on which his first attempt had failed. The motion was then debated and lost. Mr. Charlton was a leader in the Equal Rights Association which grew out of the agitation on the Jesuits' Estate question. He was the subject of much criticism for his subsequent action, but his course was one quite consistent with every principle he had previously laid down. He found the attempt made in the executive committee of the association just before the provincial general election, by means of a manifesto, to reflect, as he believed unjustly, upon the Ontario Government as led by Hon. Oliver Mowat, a government which he held to be the purest and best the country had ever known. He declined to be a party to this action, refused to subscribe to the manifesto when it was issued, and not only that, but to offset at much as possible the attempt that had been made, he published a letter to Wm. Cavan, D.D., president of the association, giving his reasons for refusing to sign the manifesto, and took the stump in favour of the Government. In the course of that campaign, which seemed more ominous for the Government than any previous one since Mr. Mowat's accession to office, Mr. Charlton addressed many meetings, and always with effect. The forgoing is but a part of the public work, the conscientious, even laborious, performance of which is the solid foundation upon which the political reputation of Mr. Charlton rests. He is thoroughly popular in his own country, having turned a Conservative riding into what is commonly known as a "Grit hive." He is also held in high esteem among his fellow members of the House of Commons.

Those of his opponents who grow restive under his denunciations of their course, or who fail to find argument with which to reply to him, invariably call him an annexationist, some even clinching this accusation by reference to his American birth. This was the chief cry raised against him in his first election, and wherever attempts are made to reply to him on the platform or in Parliament, the same may still be heard. Instead of weakly begging out of such accusations, Mr. Charlton meets them aggressively, and makes them add to the strength of his position. He is a close and intelligent student of American affairs, and his illustrations of warning and example respecting the political course of Canada are largely drawn from the history of the Republic. Instead of noting only those points where Canada has the advantage of her neighbour, and vaingloriously boasting of it, Mr. Charlton, recognizing how many points of similarity there are in the social and political circumstances of the two peoples, seeks to use the experience of the Americans as a matter of practical and real benefit to Canada.

A sound-minded man holding this view is naturally unaffected by sneers. By his whole private and public life, Mr. Charlton has declared his preference for Canadian over American institutions as a whole, and few have done harder or better work than he in keeping those institutions sound and strong and effective for the maintenance of the rights of the individual. Though engaged in an extensive business, and devoting much time to public affairs, Mr. Charlton has made opportunities to do good, useful work in connection with church and Sunday-school. He is an ardent Presbyterian, and has taken a prominent part in the affairs of the denomination.

At the meeting of the General Assembly in Hamilton, in 1886, he made a strong speech in advocacy of the consolidation of the theological colleges carried on under the auspices of the Presbyterian Church in Canada. The proposal was received with a good deal of favour, but it aroused opposition among the representatives of the colleges, who are a power in the Assembly by reason not so much of their numbers as their commanding ability. The debate was the occasion for a lively passage at arms between Mr. Charlton and the Rev. Principal Grant, in which that divine did not have it all his own way. Mr. Charlton purposes pressing this question again upon the attention of the Assembly. His ability and his knowledge of public affairs, combined with his thorough practical acquaintance with their business, has led those engaged in the lumber and timber business, to look to Mr. Charlton for assistance in matters which require legislative executive action. For years he fought the export duty on logs, and his speeches had much to do with causing the Government (in 1889) to rescind its action in increasing that duty. Another public office in which he has been engaged, and one wholly different from those mentioned above, was that of chairman of the commission on the mineral resources of Ontario. That commission visited the important mining districts of the province, and took the evidence of all those mining experts, mine owners and others who, it was believed, could give information of value to the people on the subject engaging the attention of the commission, and Mr. Charlton and the secretary of the commission, Mr. Blue, also visited some leading centers of the United States, where information respecting mining in its legislative, economic, or industrial phases, was to be had. Among other places visited were Washington, Pittsburg, Pa., Chattanooga, Tenn., and Birmingham, Ala. The report of the commission was presented in 1889. It is admitted to be one of the most valuable state documents of this character ever issued. Mr. Charlton's home is at Lynedoch, where he has resided since commencing business there in 1853. In 1854 he married Miss Ella Gray, of Lynedoch, a native of Portage, N.Y.1a

__________________

Dr. Charlton came here in 1902 and served on the Hespeler School Board in 1904-1905 and 1906 and some time later went to Galt where he took quite a prominent part in the Public Life of the community and was on one occasion Candidate of his Political Party for a seat in Parliament. His son, David, now Judge of the County of Waterloo, was born here.

Dr. Charlton's first name was Sylvester and while he taught school in Puslinch before going into Medicine some of the farmers in the section used to call him "Yes". Among these was an old Irishman, who used commonly the words "Thank God" in his conversation. Once Dr. Charlton got settled here some of these old friends paid him a visit. This old Irish chap came in one day and after the customary greetings the old Gentleman asked "Well, Ves., and how is things goin?" The Dr. replied that he was getting along very well and that just at the moment he was very busy; adding that there were an awful lot of people sick just now. The old man just said "Thank God." It amused the Doctor who told me the story at the time.2a

After a residence of about nine years, he removed to Dundas, where he ran a flouring mill, until he came to Preston, in 1879.

The deceased was the father of ten children, of whom seven are living. They are Mrs. Woolams, of Brantford; Mrs. Wilson, Rolands, Wyoming; Mrs. D. Burnfield, Ogden, Utah: Mrs. Fallis, London; Samuel Cherry, Preston; John Cherry, Galt and Edward Cherry in Alton.

6362 THE HOLLOWED CHOCOLATE

from Memoirs of a great detective:
incidents in the life of John Wilson Murray (1904)

compiled by Victor Speer

A CALL to Galt awaited Murray on his return from Thessalon and the search for Maud Gillespie. Great excitement prevailed in the county of Waterloo. Many people were terrified; others were infuriated. A fiend was among them spreading death and planning the extermination of whole families. No one had any clue to the mysterious one's identity. It might be a stranger, it might be a neighbour; it might be a person of high estate or it might be a creature of low degree. None knew, and there were myriad suspicions. It was as if an avenging angel or a deadly devil were abroad in the county, lurking to slay and escape unseen, leaving no trace of the manner of death. A victim arose in the morning well and happy, and fell lifeless before noon without a sign of sickness or an intimation of the end.

"The climax came when little Meta Cherry, the three-year-old daughter of John Cherry, a prominent mill-owner of Galt, died in a sudden and mysterious way," says Murray. "I went to Galt, a prosperous town near Berlin, in the county of Waterloo It was September 1888. Several persons were sick, as if a plague were upon them. I looked at the little child. She seemed startled, even in death, as if the hand that thrust her into eternity had seized her roughly and scared her. I talked with John Cherry, and he told me of a box of chocolate drops that had come through the mail. He showed me the box. A few of the chocolates were gone. Meta had eaten them. I took one out, and carefully scraped the chocolate off with a knife-blade. I found on the bottom of the chocolate a spot where a cavity had been bored, and this had been filled with a whitish substance, unlike the cream candy of the chocolate, and the hole then had been sealed deftly by glazing over the bottom with more chocolate. I took the contents of the box, and sent the chocolates to Professor Ellis for analysis.

"I examined the box minutely. It revealed no clue, simply an ordinary pasteboard box. The wrapper in which it came showed a label pasted over an old address. The address on this label was printed with a soft lead pencil. I steamed the label to get at the address underneath it, but it had been washed out and scraped away, except for the one word 'Miss.' The package had been mailed in Galt. On inquiry I learned that similar packages had been received by the Rev. John Ridley, minister of the Church of England in Galt, and by Miss May Lowell and Mrs. Lowell, daughter and wife of Charles Lowell, proprietor of the Queen's Hotel in Galt. The boxes were quite small, and the inscriptions were alike as to the soft lead pencil. The packages had been dropped in the mail when no one was around, and the sender had vanished unseen.

"Professor Ellis reported that the cavities in the chocolate drops were filled with strychnine. This established clearly the intent of the poisoner to kill many people, and wipe out a number of families.

"I spent days gathering all the gossip of the town for generations back, hearing all the tales of trouble, and searching for some secret feud or some deadly hatred that would supply a motive for the deed. I ransacked ancestral closets for family skeletons, and I poked in all the after-dark affairs and twilight scandals since the days when the oldest inhabitants were gay young folk, fond of walking hand-in-hand through the gloaming. I ran down secrets that distressed dear old ladies, and left them in tears. I heard confessions of errors of youth that had lain locked in gentle bosoms for many kindly years; in fact, for a time I was an old Paul Pry Gadabout, poking my nose into other folk's business, until I felt I had sifted the lives and winnowed the chaff from the wheat in the collective career of the entire community. Every town has its chamber of horrors, where the sad episodes of indiscreet living are laid away to crumble in darkness, and the town of Galt has no more than its share of secrets of the passing generations. I found nothing in the long-gone years to throw light on the crime. There was no venerable hatred sufficient to inspire the murder of a little child. So I turned to later years, and for entanglements of recent months.

"In the meantime, about the middle of October, I arrested Hannah Boyd at Thorold. Hannah was a fine-looking girl, and had been living as a domestic in the Queen's Hotel, of which Mr. Lowell was proprietor. Later she removed to Thorold, and worked for a family there as Hannah Bond. Her home was in Hamilton. I kept her a week, and interviewed her thoroughly, particularly as to the family life of the Lowells, and whether she knew of the receipt of the package of chocolates by Mrs. Lowell and Miss Lowell, and whether she ever had heard of any trouble with the Ridleys, the Cherrys, and the Lowells. I was satisfied after these interviews with Hannah that she had no guilty knowledge, and that she had nothing whatever to do with sending the packages.

"I did develop promptly a strong suspicion as to the person who did send the poison packages. I searched the drug-stores through Canada, and examined the poison-books in all of them, and went so far as to describe to some of the druggists the person I suspected; but I found no clue that would hold in a trial as sufficient evidence to convict anybody. It is one of the most aggravating cases of my entire experience, yet I hold steadfast to my first impression."

6365 SAMUEL CHERRY

Samuel J. Cherry was born on February 4th., 1843, at Diamond, Carleton County where his parents had settled on emigration from the County of Armagh, in the north of Ireland, and died at Preston, July 2nd., 1917. The family moved to Dundas in his infancy. Here he went to school, one of his teachers being Robert Edgar, grandfather of Town Clerk Edgar, of Preston. At the age of about 15 years he became apprentice in the grist mill of the late Jas. Coleman. At 19 he came to Preston to work in Abram Erb & Bros. Cambridge Mills, which later became his own. In Preston he married Barbara Wilrick, who predeceased him by seven years. He returned to Dundas to take charge of the Joseph Webster mills and a few years later went to Guelph, to the Speedsville mill, then owned by the late James Goldie, who subsequently built a new mill of which Mr. Cherry was superintendent for about 12 years. By this time he decided to go into business for himself, or rather with his brother John. They had in succession the Phoenix mill in Guelph, the Glenmorris mill, then one in Walkerton, and later operated the Clendinning mill until in 1879 they acquired the mill in Preston. Ten years later the brothers dissolved partnership, S. J. Cherry continuing alone. The present mill buildings date from 1894 when they replaced the old frame mill built in 1835 on the site of the original John Erb mill. Mr. Cherry improved and beautified the property generally, building also the two handsome brick houses on it, the first replacing an old frame house.

In public life Mr. Cherry was member of the town council of Preston, chairman of the Park Board almost from its inception to the time of his death and for eight years member of the County council, ending with being warden of the County in 1906. He was member of the Toronto Board of Trade, member of the Dominion Millers' Association, and director of the Galt Malleable Iron Co., Ltd., and of the Canadian Millers Mutual Fire Insurance Co. He was a member of St. Johns Church (Anglican) Preston. In politics he was a Conservative.

He left two sons, George and William, and one daughter, Mrs. Carl Nispel, all of Preston.

From the Galt Reporter: "Sam" Cherry was one of the most successful of the old time flour millers, a worthy contemporary of the Sherks and Sniders and Goldies, who have made Waterloo County famous in the flour markets of Canada, England and Scotland. Sam was a public-spirited citizen, as Preston well knows. Who has not admired the beauty spot he created out of the canal and the slopes thereof? What would he not have done to beautify Galt had he been the owner of the dam and the surrounding property which, not long ago, offered opportunities for embellishment rarely at hand in a growing and picturesque city? The Cherry idea in Civic Beautification should not be allowed to lapse in the district of which Galt and Preston form a part.1a

1aFifth Annual Report of the Waterloo Historical Society 1917

______________________

From the age of fifteen, when he became an apprentice in a gristmill at Dundas, until his death some sixty years later, Samuel Cherry was associated with flour mills. The Cherry Mill at Preston is the oldest continuing business in Waterloo County. The 1807 original "John Erb" mill was replaced by a frame mill in 1835, and the brick structure was erected in 1894.

At the age of nineteen, Cherry moved to Preston to work with the Abram Erb and Brothers Cambridge Mill, which he later owned. He subsequently had charge of mills at Dundas, Guelph, Glenmorris, Walkerton and Glendinning. In 1879 he and his brother John acquired the Preston mill and ten years later he became sole owner.

Cherry served the municipality as a member of the town council, chairman of the park board, as a member of the county council and as warden in 1906.2a

6404 A gruesome and particularly unusual case (I have found no parallel to it in the province) comes from Waterloo in 1859. A Dr. Frederick Christ was convicted of having stolen the body of a child of the Eby family from the grave to make a skeleton. Dr. Christ had apparently performed the same operation on a number of bodies and, it appears from the evidence at the trial, freely admitted to enquiring friends and visitors at his house what he was doing. One witness testified that he saw the doctor boiling what the doctor affirmed to be human bones in a kettle, another that he saw human bones in a tub in the doctor's barn. Presumably the accused was in the business of selling mounted skeletons to doctors and medical students. He and an accomplice were each sentenced to three months in the common jail.

________________________________________

A distressing investigation was held before the Magistrates of Berlin, on Wednesday, involving the character of one of the medical gentlemen of that town, another residing in Elmira, and a gentleman closely connected with the first-charged offender. It seems that for some time suspicious hints and cirumstances, and smells, had indicated that the resurrection trade was being revived in Berlin, and that the remains of certain bodies had been conveyed to the premises of a medical gentleman, and, after dissection, the flesh had been consumed by boiling. The circumstances were so pointed that the magistrates deemed them sufficient to issue warrants for the arrest of the parties accused, and search warrants were also put into the hands of the officers to examine the Doctor's premises, and there accordingly they found the mutilated re-mains of several human bodies. Among these were the remains of a fine young lad named Eby, the son of Mr. Abraham Eby, of Bridgeport. The youth had been accidently killed at a soiree at Bridgeport a week or two ago, and his body interred, amid the heartfelt sorrow of a multitude of friends. A portion of his body was found on the premises of the accused, and they were sworn to by the afflicted father from certain marks. Portions of two other bodies were found, which the accused stated were those of certain persons; the tale was found to be false. The bodies appear all to have been taken from a graveyard in Berlin.

QUEEN vs DR CHRIST

This case, which we noticed in this journal a short time ago, arose out of the fact that the prisoner, Dr. Christ, had been detected in the act of boiling parts of a human body on his premises in the Village of Waterloo. From some remarks he, Dr. Christ had dropped, it was suspected that a son of Mr. Abraham Eby, who was killed at Bridgeport had been taken from his grave; which on examination proved to be correct. The indictment is as follows: The Jurors of our Sovereign Lady the Queen upon their oaths present that Frederick Christ did on the 13th of August last willfully and indecently enter the churchyard of the Mennonites in Berlin, and dig open the grave in which one Edward Eby had been buried, and did then take away the said body.

The following witnesses were then called on behalf of the Crown:

JOHN WALTER - Sworn - Was on Christ's premises on the 29th August, and saw him boiling something in a kettle. Christ said those are the bones of a human being, of which I am going to make a skeleton.

Cross examined - Was not annoyed by the smell. Christ did not say to me he was going to sell the bones.

Dr. S. S. BOWERS - Is a physician in Waterloo. Was on Christ's premises on the 30th day of August last. Opened a tub in a barn and saw quite a number of human bones. The smell I the barn was that peculiar to a human body in a state of decomposition. Saw also in the house where Christ lived, the whole of the bones belonging to a skeleton. Saw other bones taken from a trunk. The bones so found, belonged to a head. Can't tell what size they were, as they were broken and only a very few of them. Should think they belonged to a child of 7, 8, or 9 years. Can't tell how long since they were dressed. Here the bones were produced and Dr. Bowers described them fully to the Court. A scalp was also produced, which showed evidence of the skull having been fractured.

Cross ex'd - The bones in the tub were those of a grown person. Have no means of connecting the bones of the head with the scalp shown. The trunk in which the bones were found was not concealed.

ABRAHAM EBY - Affirmed - Had a son killed on the 23rd of July, aged nearly six years, was buried in the Mennonite Churchyard, Berlin. With the particulars of this child's death our readers are already acquainted. Witness identified the hair as belonging to his son. The scalp produced is that of my son. Swears positively that the bones produced are belonging to his child.

MR. SPENCER, ESQ. - Sworn - On going to the premised of Dr. Christ, I told him I understood that they were carrying on the business of preparing skeletons. Christ said he did and he made no secret of it. He had a right to do it, and it was nobody's business how he made his money. Corroborated the evidence of Dr. Bowers as to the appearance of the bones in the tub, and of the skeletons in the house. Went and saw the grave of Mr. Eby's child, opened it and found the coffin empty. On returning to Christ's house found the pile of small bones removed. Was present when Mr. Abraham Eby's son was killed. Find the same marks on the scalp produced, and were on the head of the child. Cannot be mistaken as I helped to wash and lay out the child.

Cross ex'd - I committed Christ for a misdemeanor for cutting up bodies and boiling them. I am not on bad terms with Dr. Christ. Considered it my duty after examining the premises to have Christ and Werthman arrested. Offered to take bail from them on their appearance at court. The did not tender any.

JOHN W. KOEHLER - Sworn - A few days after the burial of Eby's child, Dr. Christ came into Schnarr's Tavern in Waterloo Village, and made the remark that the bodies of William Rebscher, John Nahrgang, and Zoeger were not in their graves. Afterwards, Dr. Christ offered to bet with witness that Abram Eby's child was not in his grave. Christ said that he would not go and bring the bodies himself, but that he could get plenty at an outlay of ten dollars.

Cross ex'd - But for Dr. Christ having offered to bet with me as to the child being out of his grave, I had no reason to suppose that he had taken the body. Thinks it was about a week after the funeral, when defendant offered to bet with him. have always been on good terms with defendant.

Abram Eby - Recalled by Crown Attorney - Said he examined the grave where his child was buried, and found the same empty. D.S. Shoemaker and Moses Springer, Esqs. were present.

WM. LOEFFLER - Sworn - On two occasions saw a team leave Christ's premises about 10 pm and return about 2 am. Saw the parties unload bags from the wagon. Christ owns a team.

Cross ex'd - Has known Dr. Christ to be called to attend patients after night. I am on good terms with Dr. Christ.

M. SPRINGER - Recalled - Saw a large bag on the premises. I recognize the hook now shown to me as the one found in the cellar of Christ's home. Is ignorant of its uses.

CONRAD SMITH - Sworn - the hook produced was made in my shop, by order of one of Werthman's boys.

This closed the case for the prosecution. [Mr. Palmer, Barrister, of Guelph, did all he could for the prisoner, but the evidence was too strong against him. - Ed. Ch.]

His Honor read the indictment, and the evidence in full to the Jury, and stated at some length the different Statutes connected with such cases. The jury retired, and after a very short absence returned into Court with a verdict of Guilty.

The trial of the QUEEN vs WERTHMAN, was then gone into. The evidence was in every respect similar to that adduced in the case of Dr. Christ. Verdict Guilty.

Christ and Werthman were sentenced to 3 months in Common Gaol.

__________________________________

CHRIST, FRIEDRICH,
was a Mecklenburger, born about 1824. He described himself as a "forty-eighter", a follower of Carl Schurz. When he came to Canada in 1851, it was probably because his revolutionary activities had not endeared him to the authorities of his homeland.

His card first appeared in Der Deuusche Canadier on December 1, 1853, and was followed by an amplified form on January 12, 1854:


Dr. F. Christ Physician, Surgeon and Accoucheur introduces himself to his German fellowcountrymen to assist in all matters of medical science. My residence is with Mr. Teuscher, Editor of the "Canadischen Bauernfreundes" above Clark & Co.'s furniture factory on the road to Bridgeport.

A week later a further announcement indicated that he would pay weekly visits to Mr. Nicholas Hug's inn at New Germany.

In April a notice concerning the death of a young consumptive was the occasion of an expression of thanks "for his unremitting solicitude and devotion in the treatment" of the patient, and goes on to say "that they and all the neighborhood are aware of the high quality of Dr. Christ as a physician and as a man."

This is the only reference to his medical abilities and qualifications, but it is of interest to note that when in 1866 eligibility for registration came under examination, he left for the States.

During his stay in Waterloo he was constantly involved in controversy, especially concerning politics and religion, being, as one source reports. "much more zealous than cool in the advocacy of his principles or opinions. "

An episode of more serious nature took place in the fall of 1859, the first intimation being found in the Berlin Telegraph of September 2, 1859, under the heading "Resurrectionists in Waterloo. "It was reported that Christ had been remanded to the Quarter Sessions for trial on a charge of grave robbing. For fear of prejudicing the opinion of the public, they could not discuss the case, and they then proceeded to say "that the open manner in which he went about his work, was so bold an outrage upon the feelings of the community, that his conduct could not be passed over by the authorities."

At the trial, Moses Springer, the magistrate who laid the charge testified:

On going to the premises of Dr. Christ, I told him I understood they were carrying on the business of preparing skeletons. Christ said he did, and made no secret of it. He had a right to do it, and it was no body's business how he made his money…"

Other evidence was that Christ had, while in a tavern, names those whose bodies he had acquired through his assistant in crime, Hugo Werthman. Both were found guilty and sentenced to three months in jail.

Werthman was a poor choice of associate as no sooner had he served his time than he was charged by the police in Hamilton with stealing furs.

On August 17, 1860, D. McDougall, editor of the Berlin Telegraph in an attack on his political opponents suggested that they should be looked after by Dr. Christ. Christ responded to this remark by what appeared to be a challenge to a duel. The editor made an ambivalent reply: "We intended no slight to that personage" and then "Having heard of his skill as a physician, especially in the dissecting line"

Despite the comments of the press, his standing in the community does not appear to have been seriously affected. When his son was born in October, 1861, the Turnverein, of which he was secretary, held a reception for him, at which the Turners, including out of town members, took part in appropriate costume.

In May 1866 his wife died after a lingering illness. This produced the usual spate of rumors that she had been poisoned, as the Berliner Journal was to point out in the future.

In September of that same year he moved to Lansing, Michigan, to practice there and in Grand Rapids, although a wedding announcement in January 1867 gives his address as Muskegon. Three children were born to this marriage, but after some seven years his wife became insane and she committed suicide.

On January 21, 1875 he followed her by taking an overdose of morphine. The Grand Rapids Eagle of that date said that since the death of his wife "he has apparently cared little for life, indulging considerably in drink." According to the Berliner Journal his practice was "on its last legs", and they also mentioned his first wife's death.

6409 CHRISTIE, DAVID, politician and farmer; b. in Edinburgh, Scotland, in October 1818, son of Robert Christie; d. at Paris, Ont., 14 Dec. 1880.

David Christie was educated at Edinburgh High School; he was a good student, particularly well versed in Latin literature. In 1833 he came to Canada with his family. The next year his father took up a farm near St George in the southern part of Dumfries Township (in what is now South Dumfries Township), an area of largely Scottish settlement in the Grand River valley of Upper Canada. The Christie family was closely connected with the Dumfries Secessionist Presbyterian congregation, especially through David's uncle, the Reverend Thomas Christie, a Presbyterian missionary in the district for the United Associate Secessionist Church, a fragment split from the established Kirk in Scotland. David was certainly exposed to the Dumfries church's strongly held doctrine of voluntaryism - that churches should be voluntary organizations, not established, aided, or in any way interfered with by the state.......Meanwhile, he had continued to make his own estate, "The Plains," an agricultural showplace. The Dumfries property was also held until 1871, and by 1868 Christie already had, by deed, some 540 acres in his Brantford Township estate, on which he built a handsome mansion. He had married Isabella Turnbull of Dumfries in 1848. She died in 1858, and in 1860 he was married again, to Margaret Telfer of Springfield in Elgin County. The Christies had a large family at their Plains residence, where they frequently housed friends, political allies, and visiting agriculturalists. Moreover, from 1866 onward, a one-time schoolfellow become political enemy and now again an increasingly close friend, George Brown, had been developing his own extensive farming estate at Bow Park on the other side of Brantford. In the 1870s the two became frequent visitors, happily reminiscing about past political battles. Christie, in fact, became vice-president of the cattle company which Brown incorporated for his large-scale pedigreed stockbreeding enterprise at Bow Park.....1a

Death of Hon. David Christie

At four o'clock on Wednesday morning last, this gentleman died, after an illness extending over about three weeks. The cause of his death was somewhat singular. For a few days a corn on one of his toes had been troubling him very much and he undertook to cut it. Happening to cut to the quick it was observed that a small quantity of pus exuded, but nothing was thought of it at the time. The toe continuing very sore, while in Paris, he showed it to a medical man, who advised poulticing. This Mr. Christie did for a few days, but without any beneficial result. Another medical man was consulted, who simply changed the poultice, and thought a few days would effect a cure. Continuing to get worse, on Friday last symptoms of mortification showed themselves, and there been some delay in securing the attendance of a physician, we believe that when the medical man did arrive he pronounced the case as almost hopeless, as the mortification had extended so far that amputation to check it could not be resorted to in the then low condition of the patient. From this time Mr. Christie gradually sank, until at the hour we named, he died.

It is needless to write of the life of this gentleman. In this district the record is well known. Successively he has occupied very responsible positions of trust. He was born in Edinburgh, Scotland, in 1818, and was therefore aged 62 years at the time of his death. A brother in arms, in every sense, of the late Hon. George Brown, it is a curious coincidence that in the same year and from somewhat similar cases, they should both have been called away.

Mr. Christie's funeral takes place today (Friday) at 1 o'clock pm, from the residence of Mrs. Telfer, Paris, to the Cemetery of St. George.2a

6412 MRS. KEEFER

Mrs. Keefer, widow of the late Peter Keefer of Galt, after a fortnight's illness, passed quietly away last Friday afternoon, December 15th. Her illness was more the breaking up of a naturally strong constitution than actual disease. Bad she lived two weeks more, she would have completed 81 years of life. Galt loses in Mrs. Keefer's death one of its oldest residents, one who has seen all the changes, advances and progress that have taken place here in the last 44 years, for it was in the early part of 1850, that Mrs. Keefer first moved here with her husband and young family. The journey they made from Thorold, in the Niagara peninsula, took the greater part of two days in stage sleighs, via Hamilton, where the night was spent. Of the family of five children who came with her, three only remain, one son a retired officer of the Indian Army, at present settled in Galt, and two daughters, one married to Mr. David Sipiers of Galt and the other to Mr. John Barnard, General Manager of the Omaha and St. Louis R. R. Her husband died about six years ago, having attained almost precisely the same advanced age at which she has just passed away. Mrs. Keefer was of Scotch descent, her maiden name being Christie. She came to this country in 1835, with her parents who settled for a time at Niagara, but eventually returned to England, their daughter having meanwhile been married to Mr. Peter Keefer, one of the well known families of U. E. Loyalist's of Thorold. Six of Mrs. Keefer's uncles served their country faithfully and well, three having been in the army and three in the navy. Of the latter Captain Peter Christie, R.N., had the honor, when a private officer, of being presented with a miniature portrait on Ivory of Napoleon Bonaparte by the Emperor himself, when the latter was a State prisoner on the Bellerophon, on which ship young Christie was serving as midshipman. Christie afterwards lost, his life in the Crimea campaign and this portrait of the Emperor came into Mrs. Keefer's possession. During her life here Mrs. Keefer attached to herself many sincere friends. Her bright manner, animated conversation and numerous accomplishments making her a general favorite. Of her contemporaries hardly one survives her. Besides the three children named above, she leaves behind her sixteen grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.

News Of Death of Last Surviving Member of Family Held Back For Fear of Too Great a Shock

The two last surviving children of Mrs. Jane Christman's family of seven children, passed away within several days of each other. Word was received this week of the death and burial of her son Philip H. Christman at Denver, Colorado, following a paralytic stroke. He was widely known in mercantile circles there. Mrs. Christman was informed of the son's death this week. Word of the death of her daughter, Agnes Christman, who was well-known in town, reached here on Tuesday but was not passed on to Mrs. Christman immediately for fear that news of the deaths of her last two children within such a short time of each other and so sudden would be too much.

The funeral service of Miss Agnes Christman was held at 10:30 Thursday morning from the Dreisinger Funeral home. Interment was made in the family plot, in Elmira. Rev. J. Ure Stewart conducted the funeral services.

The account of the death of Philip Christman as recorded in a Denver paper was as follows:

Mr. Christman was born in Elmira, Ontario, on March 22, 1876. He came to Denver, 27 years ago and had lived here since. He was a member of Masonic Lodge, No. 84 A.F. and A.M. He is survived by his wife and a daughter of Denver, his mother, Mrs. Jane Christman, and a sister, Agnes of Elmira. Funeral services will be held on Wednesday after at the Olinger Mortuary, Speer boulevard and Sherman street. Burial will be in Fairmount Cemetery."

The death of Miss Agnes Christman took place at the Old People's Home in Kitchener. Deceased was born in Elmira on Sept. 13, 1872. Her death followed a short illness of flu which later developed into pneumonia. On Monday she expressed a wish to have her mother come to see her, but owing to Mrs. Christman's age, which is nearly 90, it was thought advisable for her not to go.1a

6419 Sad, Sudden and Mysterious

A very sad and unexpected death was that of Mr. David L. Christman, youngest son of Mrs. J. Christman of Elmira. The young man died at Toronto where he was employed in a whole-sale house. He enjoyed good health until a few days before his death. The first symptoms he noticed were small dark spots appearing under the skin on different parts of the body. Then his nose began to bleed and as all ordinary means to stop the bleeding failed, a doctor was called in who succeeded with some difficulty in stopping the flow of blood. The patient felt considerably better and when his brother lay down to sleep beside him on Wednesday evening (of last week) nothing serious was feared. But when the brother awoke on the following morning he found the pillow saturated with blood. The patient had already lost consciousness and the efforts of two doctors, who were at once summoned, failed to revive him. He died in short time being suffocated by the quantity of blood in the air vessels. The doctors were very much puzzled and said they had never met with a similar case. They thought a blood vessel burst and clogged up the circulation, but a definite, adequate solution of the case they could not give. The corpse was brought to Elmira and buried on Saturday afternoon. The bereaved family have the sympathy of the community in their sudden loss.1a

6420 It is our duty this week to chronicle the death of Mr. Henry Christman, one of our pioneers. Mr. Christman died on the 9th inst., 1888 after a lingering illness of several years. His sickness was a complication of disorders, but death was due to flooding of the heart. Mr. Christman was born in Greese, Rhein Giessen, Baiern on the 1st of July 1818. He emigrated to America in 1846, going to Gensborough near St. Catharines, where he stayed four years, when he came to West Woolwich in 1850, being one of the very first settlers here. After his arrival here he worked for Mr. Edward Bristow at the blacksmithing for a time, afterwards starting for himself, at which he was employed until 1856 when he built the brick hotel now occupied by Mr. Henry Zilliax, and was second Postmaster here, being followed by Mr. Peter Winger our present Postmaster. After being in the hotel for some time he bough the farm known as the Christman Homestead, one mile south of Elmira, on which he lived 15 years, after which he retired to Elmira, where he lived until his death Mr. Christman was married twice having 11 children of the first wife of whom 6 are living. After the death of his wife he married the widow of Mr. Warle, having 6 children of his second wife of whom 3 are living. His wife and 9 children therefore survive him. His children are Mr. Philip Christman of Elmira, Mrs. Lewis Hollinger of Wallace, Mrs. Fritz Conrad near Elmira, Mr. Jacob Christman do., Mrs. Jacob Brown of Listowel, Mr. William Christman of Chippawa Hill and Herman, Leopold and Henry. Mr. Christman was a member of the Lutheran Church for a good many years, a staunch conservative and believer in the N. P. Mr. Christmas died surrounded by his children and large circle of friends. The funeral which took place on Sunday was largely attended.1a

6421 Last Sunday morning, Mr. Jacob Christman, a well-known citizen, who had spent almost the whole of his life in this neighborhood, passed away after suffering a number of years from a lingering illness which, however, did not confine him to the house until last Christmas. Deceased was a son of the late Henry Christman and came to Elmira with his parents when he was two years of age. He was born on the "Twenties" Lincoln County, in 1848, was married to Miss Louisa Miller in 1875, with whom he had six children, two of whom died in their youth. He leaves a sorrowing widow, two sons, John and Oscar, and two daughters. After his marriage, deceased engaged in agriculture and lived several years on the farm now occupied by Mr. Hy. Horst. Later he returned to the Christman homestead, a short distance south of Elmira. He was a model of physical strength and manhood of a kind and generous disposition and enjoyed the respect of his acquaintances. In 1892 he purchased the Union Hotel in Elmira, where he did a large business until fire destroyed the premises after which he purchased the O'Donnell House. This he conducted until a few years ago, when he retired and lived in a private residence. He was a member of the local lodge of Odd Fellows, and his fellow members participated in the funeral services which were held last Tuesday. After the burial, Rev. Schulz preached an impressive sermon in St. James Lutheran church where a large concourse of relatives and friends had gathered.1a

Philip Christman, Pioneer Resident, Mourned In Death:
Respected Citizen, Who Succumbed, Aged 85, Long Identified With Elmira Affairs:
WAS A WATERLOO WARDEN

Spent More Than Score of Years at Smith's Forge: Odd Fellow Over Half-century

Gale Presbyterian church was filled to capacity on Sunday afternoon when friends and relatives from far and near gathered to pay tribute to the late Philip Christman, aged 85, Elmira's oldest resident and second oldest citizen, and an outstanding figure in the life of the community. Services were conducted at this late residence, Arthur street, at 2.30 p.m. And later at the Presbyterian church, of which he was a faithful member for many years. Rev. F. McAvoy, pastor of the church, was c in charge of the services, assisted by Rev. A. M. Hamiton of Guelph, an old friend of Mr. Christman and a former pastor here.

Former Postmaster

An ex-postmaster, and an ex-warden of Waterloo County, Philip Christman was one of Elmira's pioneer citizens and was intimately associated with the growth of the town from its early days. Born in Bavaria on February 14, 1842, in sight of the Rhine, he came with his parents to Ontario in the year 1846, locating near St. Catherines. He moved to Elmira in 1856, where as a lad he got what little schooling there was available and commenced the trade of blacksmithing under the tutelage of Walter Wells, later a prominent citizen of Waterloo.

Farmed For Time

Mr. Christman worked for Block Markle at this trade and eventually bought the business which he carried on some time. Two years later Mr. Christman bought a farm near the town, which he and his son Charles worked for three years. Neither liking farming, he sold out and returned to Elmira and started blacksmithing again, continuing in this business for 20 years. Mr. Christman came to Elmira when it was not even a Hamlet, and it was sturdy stock such as he that made Elmira what it is today.

Councilor and Warden

In later years he became interested in municipal affairs and became councilor and later reeve of Woolwich and warden of Waterloo County. He was a member of the Odd Fellows for 54 years and was installed Nobel Grand 14 years ago. Mr. Christman was a remarkable healthy man all his life. At the age of 81 he could still turn a horse-shoe and set a tire as well as the more modern tradesman. In 1915 he was appointed postmaster here but retired in 1922. Since that time he has been enjoying a well earned rest. He was married to Paulina Vogt in 1867, a union which was blessed by five children, Mrs. Amelia Harper, Waterloo; Charles, Windsor; Otto L., Orillia; Miss Bertha and George at home.

Many Mourners

The remains were interred in the Elmira Cemetery, the burial rites of the Odd Fellow being performed at the graveside. The pallberarers were Messrs. William Behrens, J. A. Schroder, F. Shurly, Frank Rudow, A. Moses and Jack Maine. Among the out of town mourners were: Mr. and Mrs. Charles Christman, Windsor; Mr. and Mrs. Otto Christman and son Lorne, Orillia; Mr. and Mrs. J. A. Harper, Mr.and Mrs. Hugh Rogers, Dr. and Mrs. Grant Harper, Mr. and Mrs. A. MacIntyre, Mr. and Mrs. J. Schondelmoyer, Mr. and Mrs. J. Conrad and daughter, Waterloo; Mr. and Mrs. C. K. Jansen, Mr. and Mrs. Robert Hunter, Galt; Mr. and Mrs. S. H. Elby, St. Thomas; Mrs. J. Brundle, Mr. and Mrs. William Smith and Mrs. Frank Dunham, Hamiton; Mr. and Mrs. Scarrett, Port Huron; Miss Annie Uttley, Kitchener; Mr. and Mrs. Alf Jeanneret, Mr. And Mrs. Boomer, Toronto; Mrs. William Smith, Mr. Allan Smith, Mrs. Adam Pfaff, Rev. A. M. Hamilton, Guelph; Mr. and Mrs. George Hathaway, Mrs. Edward Roos, New Hamburg, and Mrs. Theoph Winn, Preston; Mr. and Mrs. John Goldner and son, Mr. and Mrs. Alfred Hollinger, Listowel.

_________________________________________________

Mr. Phillip Christman was born in Germany. When 10 years of age he came, with his parents to Elmira, in the year 1851, and is therefore one of the earliest residents of Elmira yet living. He served his apprenticeship to the blacksmithing trade in Elmira and later started a shop of his own. Thirty years ago he conducted the Anglo American Hotel, where the Zilliax House now stands. Later he disposed of this and bought a farm in Woolwich Township. Twelve years ago he returned to Elmira and again engaged in blacksmithing. He has been councillor of Elmira two years and Reeve for three years.1a

News Of Death of Last Surviving Member of Family Held Back For Fear of Too Great a Shock

The two last surviving children of Mrs. Jane Christman's family of seven children, passed away within several days of each other. Word was received this week of the death and burial of her son Philip H. Christman at Denver, Colorado, following a paralytic stroke. He was widely known in mercantile circles there. Mrs. Christman was informed of the son's death this week. Word of the death of her daughter, Agnes Christman, who was well-known in town, reached here on Tuesday but was not passed on to Mrs. Christman immediately for fear that news of the deaths of her last two children within such a short time of each other and so sudden would be too much.

The funeral service of Miss Agnes Christman was held at 10:30 Thursday morning from the Dreisinger Funeral home. Interment was made in the family plot, in Elmira. Rev. J. Ure Stewart conducted the funeral services.

The account of the death of Philip Christman as recorded in a Denver paper was as follows:

Mr. Christman was born in Elmira, Ontario, on March 22, 1876. He came to Denver, 27 years ago and had lived here since. He was a member of Masonic Lodge, No. 84 A.F. and A.M. He is survived by his wife and a daughter of Denver, his mother, Mrs. Jane Christman, and a sister, Agnes of Elmira. Funeral services will be held on Wednesday after at the Olinger Mortuary, Speer boulevard and Sherman street. Burial will be in Fairmount Cemetery."

The death of Miss Agnes Christman took place at the Old People's Home in Kitchener. Deceased was born in Elmira on Sept. 13, 1872. Her death followed a short illness of flu which later developed into pneumonia. On Monday she expressed a wish to have her mother come to see her, but owing to Mrs. Christman's age, which is nearly 90, it was thought advisable for her not to go.1a

Messrs Philip and Jacob Christman attended the funeral of their brother William, at Port Elgin last week. Deceased was a successful and prosperous farmer living several miles from Port Elgin. A few days prior to his death he met with an accident, a cow having fallen against him and fractured his leg. The wounded member was bandaged and all seemed to be well with the patient. A few days later he was seized with pain in the head and on Wednesday morning while attempting to take breakfast he expired suddenly. He was the youngest son of the late Henry Christman, spent his youth and early manhood in and near Elmira and removed to near Owen Sound and later to Port Elgin, many years ago. He had reached the age of 50 years and 5 months.

Shantz.-Leah Christner, beloved wife of David S. Shantz, died in Waterloo Co., Ont., Sept. 15, 1914; aged 55 y. 11 m. 17 d. She was the mother of 10 children and leaves to mourn a loving husband, 6 sons and 2 daughters, 2 sons having preceded her. She was a faithful member of the Mennonite Church for many years. She was of a kind and loving disposition. Her place in the church is vacant, but much more in the home. "What is home without a mother?" We feel to sympathize with the bereaved family, but we believe that our loss is her eternal gain. According to our views this mother could not have been spared, but the Bible teaches us, "For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord." "For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts." Funeral was held Sept. 19 and was perhaps the largest ever held at this place. Services at the house by Orphen Wismer and at the church by Bish. Jonas Snyder and Manasseh Hallman. Text. Matt. 25:6; Phil. 1:23. Interment in Shantz's Cemetery. May God comfort the bereaved.1a

6463 One day, early in 1875, Sheriff Moses Springer made a proposition to Edgar Chrysler, a member of the Methodist Church Board. He had in his hands the disposition of a twenty- five-year-old Township Hall on Queen Street North. It belonged to the Crown Lands Department and it was rented at the time to the German newspaper, but, if Edgar Chrysler would buy it for church purposes within twenty-four hours, he might have it at a bargain - $200.00.
Edgar Chrysler, after consultation with some of the church members, went to his employer, John Fennell, and asked him for two hundred dollars on a note. Fennell advanced the money and Chrysler came into possession of the hall. At a church board meeting, on Nov. 20, 1874, Chrysler presented a receipt for the money and the deed for the property. When the note was about to fall due, a congregational meeting was called and $222.60 was raised to pay the note and the accrued interest. The old church built in 1841 was then sold to the United Brethren Church. I. E. Bowman, M.P., was the recording steward of the church at the time.

Frederick Clare, President of Clare Brothers, in 82nd Year

PRESTON, Jan. 14— Frederick Clare, president of Clare Brothers and Company, Limited, Preston and the Stamped and Enamel Limited, Hespeler, died suddenly early this morning at his Queen street home here. He had been in failing health for some time. The late Mr. Clare was in his 82nd year. One of Preston's leading citizens, the late Mr. Clare was at the time of his death, the oldest stove manufacturer in Canada. It was said recently that the Clare firm manufactures more furnaces than any other company in the British Empire, a tribute to the ingenuity of the late Mr. Clare who, with his brother, the late Hon. George A. Clare, founded the firm here in 1881. The deceased was also the prime mover in the establishment of the Hespeler company about 1912. With the late Mr. Clare the business in which his firm is engaged was his uppermost thought practically from the time the industry was started on a small scale until late years when he took a keen interest in its progress. He was always a regular attendant at his office, paying his last visit there ten days ago. Illness however, forced his retirement to his home and he appeared improved considerably even yesterday. He retired last night about 11.30 o'clock and passed away peacefully in his sleep during the early hours of this morning. Friendly associations with his employees were always one of the keynotes, to his success. The late Mr. Clare was an inspiration to all who knew him. His interest in his fellow-worker was an attachment that endeared him to all workers in the plant as evidenced at gatherings of Clare Brothers Benefit Society, a mutual aid organization which he helped to sponsor and of which he was honorary president. From a civic standpoint the deceased was a robust citizen. He believed that every capable man should assist in the operations of his community. To this end the deceased did civic service for many years, commencing public life first as an alderman, then as a reeve and in 1906, 1907 and 1908 the electorate voiced appreciation of his services by returning him as mayor. The late Mr. Clare was born in Preston and apart from a short time, some six months that he worked in Chicago, he lived here his full life. He received his education at the Preston public school and upon graduation he attended the famed Tassie Hall in Galt. A staunch Conseevative in politics, the deceased was also a member of the Oddfellows lodge. Besides his wife, who before her marriage was Isabella Stuart Cameron, there survive two sons, J. Stuart Clare of Preston and Frederick C. Clare at home and two daughters, Miss Elizabeth at home, and Mary, Mrs. George Moss, Blair. Two grandsons and two granddaughters also survive. The funeral will be held Monday afternoon from the family residence, 231 Queen street, at 2.30 o'clock. Interment will be made in the Preston cemetery.

John Clare, one of the oldest inhabitants of Preston, died on March 9th, of pneumonia, at the age of 64 years, 4 months, and 23 days. He was born in Odenbach, Rhine-Bavaria, came to America in 1834 as an 11 year-Old boy, first to Rochester, N.Y., later worked in an iron foundry in Hamilton, settled in Preston in 1844, where he carried on his business for 33 years.

In 1845, he married Margaretha Beck from Weiler in Baden (Margaretha Beck von Weiler in Baden) and the peaceful marriage produced 10 children, 5 boys and 5 in 1880, a dreadful misfortune befell him, in that his left hand was torn off as he attempted to start up his machinery. As a result, he retired from business in 1881. He was a good family man, an industrious business-man, a loyal and active member of the lutheran church, and a capable official of the town of Preston, which he served for several years as councillor and reeve in the town council, and more recently, in the county council.2a

____________________________

An enterprising young German came here [Preston] about 1838 by name of Mr. Jacob Beck. He had invented a peculiar kind of water-wheel, small in size but of great power, and its use in several small water powers gave young Mr. Beck quite a reputation. He commenced a small foundry near a saw-mill in the village of New Hope, and finding considerable encouragement came to Preston, where he erected a foundry upon the premises now owned by Peter E. Shantz in Fountain Street. Business increased rapidly, but unfortunately a fire broke out which completely destroyed his flourishing foundry and Mr. Beck, no insurance having been effected, stood once more poor and penniless; but, thanks to the liberality of his neighbors in and around Preston, a subscription was raised, men turned out to help with work and material and in a short time after the fire, Mr. Beck was again in possession of a foundry of considerably larger dimensions than the one destroyed by fire. He did an excellent business, and had men selling his stoves and other wares over a large part of Western Ontario. His means increased at a rapid rate, and he enlarged his premises according to the wants of his business. Some years later he took in as partners two of the young men in his employ, viz: John Clare and Valentine Wahn, and the foundry business continued to prosper for several years. Mr. Beck had in the meantime arranged with Mr. Robert Hunt of the Woolen Mills to improve his water power by heightening the dam and digging a canal from the dam alongside the (Speed River. This canal is still in existence except a small portion of its terminus which has recently been closed. Mr. Beck for the construction of the said canal obtained the privilege of erecting a saw-mill upon Mr. Hunt's premises. This saw-mill Mr. Beck carried on for some time but seeing that a grand scheme that he had in mind could not be carried out, he sold his sawmill to Messrs. Hunt & Elliott. This grand scheme was nothing less than extending the said canal, crossing King Street and Queen Street and erecting along the canal a number of factories and mills. The proprietor of the land positively refused to grant permission to construct such a canal and Mr. Beck was forced to abandon his cherished plan of making Preston a great manufacturing place, such as the Town of Galt is at the present day. Mr. Beck, notwithstanding the good business done in his foundry, became displeased with Preston. The partnership of Beck, Clare & Wahn was abruptly dissolved, the business closed and the affairs of the firm wound up. Each partner obtained his proper share of the assets, which were largely in excess of the liabilities, Mr. Clare a store and other property and Jacob Beck a large sum of money. He went in search of a mill property which he found in Wilmot. There he erected mills, foundry and other industries, and founded a village which he named Baden. The grist-mill built by him was the third grist-mill built with money earned in Preston.3a

The family name of John Clare, an astute and forward-looking industrialist of Preston who came to Canada from Germany, was originally Klaar.

In his late teens he learned the moulding trade in a foundry in Buffalo, NY, and in 1843 was hired by Jacob Beck of Preston. A short time later he became Beck's partner.

In 1853 when the Great Western Railway was being built Beck said: "We must locate on the railway." Clare replied: "They will have to come to us eventually." Both proved to be right for the railway did go through Preston. Beck sold his interest in the flourishing firm which became John Clare and Company.

Several sons succeeded him in the business, one of whom, George became a member of Parliament at Ottawa and a member of the Cabinet.4a

6496 CLARK, Agnes Sarah Ann

Miss Agnes Clark died Monday, January 18, 2016, at The Hanning House Retirement Home after an illness of several weeks. Agnes was born on Francis Street in Galt, September 2, 1919. She was the only child of Emerson Clark and Estella Munshaw. Agnes moved to Hamilton Street in Preston in 1929, and lived there with her parents and grandparents, James and Sarah Clark. Agnes was a woman of accomplishment, intelligence, and deep compassion. She was taught the responsible use of firearms from an early age and accompanied her father and grandfather on hunting expeditions. An expert trap shooter, she enjoyed the sport until her late 70s. Agnes was also a great naturalist and conservationist. She wanted to care for every animal she met, especially those who were misfits in some way. There was a long succession of cats and dogs in her house and even a beloved pet Mallard, Pete the Duck. She loved classical music and attended concerts and theatre until the end of her life. A keen gardener, she enjoyed maintaining her home though admittedly housework was not her strong suit. She did however always have time for others, be they her weekly bowling companions, neighbours, or life-long friends. A talented student, Agnes attended business college after graduating from the Preston Continuation School. Following a short time working at Canada Sand Paper she spent the next 55 years working for The Werlich Manufacturing Company, and then its successor Werlich Investments where she was the trusted manager of family assets. Late in life she, somewhat grudgingly, decided that she enjoyed travel including trips to the U.S., Italy, England, and France. At the age of 90 she became the first of her family to visit the grave at Vimy of her uncle, Corporal William Clark. She continued to visit New York City and attend the opera until two years ago. Agnes was predeceased by her parents, grandparents, and best friend of 86 years, Miss Elisabeth Clare. She is survived by her devoted cousin Mrs. Elsie Macmillan of New Liskeard and her family. In addition to being a much-loved friend of five generations of the Clare family, she had a group of caring friends who returned her kindness and empathy until her last day. Lynne Mixer and Allan Doyle were close confidants over the past 20 years. During her four years at The Hanning House her genuine interest in the lives and well being of the staff and fellow residents was noted and appreciated by them. Nobody could be a more devoted and faithful friend than Agnes Clark. Agnes enjoyed a long and happy life and was grateful for it. A Service of Celebration of Life well be held on Friday, July 15, 2016 at 4 p.m. at Knox Preston Presbyterian Church, 132 Argyle St. N., Cambridge. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Cambridge Humane Society or Community Living in memory of Agnes Clark.

6578 On Feb. 12th, 1831, Mr. Peterson married at Dover, Delaware, Mrs. Harriett Middleton Clayton Douglas. She was the widow of Walter Douglas, and was born May 6th, 1798 at Dagsboro, Sussex County, Delaware. Her parents were Mr. and Mrs. James Clayton, leading residents of that community. Her father was descended from one of the most noted families of colonial days. His great grandfather was Joshua Clayton who was said to have come to Pennsylvania with William Penn and his sons and located in Kent County, Delaware as early as 1895. Mrs. Douglas was a woman of rare ability, and made Mr. Peterson a devoted wife. By her first husband she had three children one, Harriett, dying in youth. The others were Margaret Ann and James Clayton Douglas. Margaret married Joseph P. Comegys, a son of C. P. Comegya, Governor of Delaware. He became one of the leading jurists of America, and Chief Justice of his State. One child of this union who survived until 1928 was Harriett Comegys of Dover, Delaware. In her declining years she was cared for by Margaret Peterson, of Guelph, Ontario, her niece, the grand-daughter of Henry William Peterson.

He was Secretary of State of the United States under President Taylor, and was joint author of the Clayton-Bulwer treaty, between the United States and Great Britain. His life was greatly saddened by the early death of his wife, and both his sons died as promising young men, leaving the father alone. Thus he took a kindly interest in relatives, and was ever a close friend and adviser of his brother-in-law, Henry William Peterson. and his son, Henry William, Jr.

After the marriage of Henry William Peterson to Mrs. Douglas, they came to Canada, going to his father's home in Markham township, York County. It was there that Henry William, their son was born, Dec. 13th, 1831.

PRESENTATION

On Monday afternoon the Women's Association and ladies of the congregation gave a farewell tea for Mrs. Eli Atkinson, who is leaving his community to reside with her daughter in Galt. A very pleasing event of the afternoon took place when Mrs. J. Caslor was asked to read an address to Mrs. Atkinson and Mrs. Albert Sibbald, on behalf of the ladies, presented her with a beautiful reed rocker.

The Address

Dear Mrs. Atkinson '96 We learn with much regret that you are soon to leave this community, and we, as members of this church, feel we could not let you go without conveying to you some idea of our esteem and love for you. During the years we have been in touch with you, we have always admired your loving disposition and feel that we shall miss you greatly, but we are cheered by the fact that our loss will mean a decided gain to the circle of friends you will go among. In order that you may carry away with you some visible token of our esteem and appreciation of you and your family, we ask you to accept this chair, and as you may often rest in it during the many years of usefulness and happiness which we trust and pray are yet before you, may it call to your remembrance the many pleasant times we had in this church and keep for us ever a place in the chamber of your memory. And when earth's shadows and mists have vanished, may we all meet again to enjoy the unbroken happiness of our Father's home. Signed on behalf of Women's Association: Mrs. Longwell, President, Mrs. Bunt, 1st Vice-Pres.; Mrs. Lindsay, Secretary; Mrs. Caslor, Treasurer.

Mrs. Eli. Atkinson Passes In 95th Year

By Evelyn Crickmore


One of the outstanding personalities of this area, Hannah Clegg Atkinson of Streetsville died peacefully on Thursday, October 21st in her 95th year. She had been the wife of the late Eli Doane Atkinson and mother of W.N. Atkinson, Streetsville, in whose home she died, following a stroke a week earlier, Fred E. of Clarkson, Len J. of Streetsville, Mrs. W.E. Bell (Isobel) of Galt and the Late G.G. of Bradford, and the friend of all who knew her.
Her story which we wrote in the Party Line last July was as inspiring as her personality. And this delightful personality all her long life incorporated a love of people, a great capacity for enjoyment, a warmly expressed appreciation for anything done for her and a joyous sense of humor and was achieved in spite of a handicap which might have daunted a less courageous spirit. She had been blinded in one eye by a kick from a horse when she was but 8 years old. She accepted it, and never complained and lived life to the full.
Although a cataract was beginning to form over her remaining eye, Mrs. Atkinson was still knitting and making lace and the evening she was stricken she had as usual insisted on washing the supper dishes and as she passed by had cautioned her daughter (for all daughters-in-law were beloved daughters to her) not to work too long at her sewing. Mrs. Fred Atkinson, a R.N., shared with Mrs. W.M. the nursing of that one week when she could not speak, but knew them all as she peacefully relaxed and then slept away, her three sons, their wives and Rev. L.G. Stapleton beside her.
The United Church, Streetsville, was filled last Saturday afternoon with her many friends who came to say their last good-bye and hear a wonderful eulogy and appreciation of their old friend by Rev. L.G. Stapleton. He quoted this hymn which her mother had taught Hannah Clegg when she was seven years of age and which she had remembered and recited recently to her family.

How tedious and tasteless the hours when Jesus no longer I see,
Sweet prospects, sweet birds and sweet flowers, have all lost their harmony.
The midsummer sun shines but dim the fields strive in vain to look gay,
But when I am happy in Him, December's as pleasant as May.

The pall bearers were Mr. Vic Johnston, Mr. H. Wright, Mr. Alfred McCracken,Mr. Frank Reid, and Mr. Ben Drennon of Streetsville and Mr. Jack Drennon of Islington. Interment was in Streetsville cemetery.

Streetsville's Oldest Resident, Hannah Atkinson, 95, Passes


Streetsville--One of South Peels eldest residents, Hannah Atkinson, died following a short illness about noon last Thursday. Almost a lifelong resident of this community, she had made her home in recent years with her son and daughter-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. W.N. Atkinson, Maiden Lane, Streetsville.
A native of Leeds, Yorkshire, England, she was the daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Wilmer (sic) Clegg. She came to Canada in 1867 at the age of seven, taking up residence in Streetsville, and remained there until her marriage. For a short time after her marriage, to the late Eli Doane Atkinson, on December 27, 1892 she resided in Hespeler, but soon returned to Streetsville where she remained ever since.

In her 95th year, Mrs. Atkinson had been in exceptional health and retained all her faculties until shortly before her death. At the age of 12 she was a weaver in the old Barber Mill, now the McCarthy Milling Company, Creditvale. She was predeceased by her husband in 1922 and a son, George, of Bradford, 10 years later.
Her survivors include three sons, Fred E. Atkinson of Clarkson, W.N. Atkinson and L.J. Atkinson, both of Streetsville, and a daughter, Mrs. Walter Bell of Galt, as well as seven grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren.

Mrs. Atkinson had always been a great church worker and was a prominent member of the United Church, Streetsville. She was present for the laying of the cornerstone of the present church and was a member of the Women's Association. She was also a member of the Trafalgar Community Club. During the last few years she has held the notable distinction of being the oldest resident of Streetsville.

Rev. L.G. Stapleton was assisted by Rev. T.D. Jones in officiating at the large funeral, which took place at the Lee and Kaiser Funeral Chapel, Queen Street, Streetsville, and interment was in Streetsville Cemetery. Pallbearers were Frank Reed, V.C. Johnson, W.H. Wright, Jack Drennan, Ben Drennan and A. McCracken, while flower bearers were R. Pidgeon, F.E. Hill, E. Wolfe, W.H. McCaughterty, A. Couse and W.G. Clements. F.F. Thomas, Ontario Minister of Agriculture and a lifelong member of the family was also present.

Following the funeral, two baskets of flowers were presented to each of the four churches in Streetsville to every shut-in in the United Church congregation, and to Queen Elizabeth Hospital. The funeral was one of the largest held in the community, with relatives and friends attending from as far away as Rochester, N.Y., Detroit, and Ottawa.

6583 W. G. Cleghorn was an important figure in early 20th century Berlin/Kitchener as an industrialist, politician, sportsman and civic-minded citizen.

He and partner Louis McBrine founded McBrine Luggage that became one of the world's largest luggage manufacturing companies. The company employed thousands of people from 1905 until the 1960s.

When the Four Wheel Drive Company came to Kitchener in the early 20th century, Cleghorn served as treasurer on its board of directors and he was prominent on the local Board of Trade.

In civic life, Cleghorn served on the board of the Berlin-Waterloo Hospital for five terms. He was an alderman on city council during the rancorous era of the Berlin-to-Kitchener name change of which he was in favor and spoke eloquently about during the debate.

It was on the sporting field that he also made a major mark. Scotty Cleghorn, as he was known in Ontario Lawn Bowling circles, helped the Berlin/Kitchener club capture several provincial championships and his team represented Canada at the British Commonwealth Games in 1934. He was also one of the first to introduce curling to the community.1a

Before coming to Elmira he was associated in a general store business with Reiner Brothers & Co. Ltd. at Wellesley for some fifteen years.
Mr. Cleghorn was born in New Hamburg and when a young man went to Wellesley, where he continued to reside after his marriage, being a resident there for about thirty-five years with an exception of a short time at Clifford.
He was an active lawn bowler, being an honorary president of the Elmira Lawn Bowling Club and a former member of the Wellesley Bowling Club. He played on most of the greens of the district, and was well-known in bowling circles throughout this section of the province. A couple of years ago, he was a member of a rink here calling themselves "the four Bills"who were well over 70 years of age. They attended a number of out-of-town tournaments and were invariably were among the prize winners.
The late Mr. Cleghorn is survived by his widow; one son, Rueben R. and one daughter, Miss Victoria, both of Elmira, the latter being public health nurse for the town.
The funeral service was held at his late home yesterday (Wednesday) afternoon, the service at the home and also at the graveside in the Elmira Cemetery were conducted by Rev. G. D.

WARNING: In my view (Jim McKane), the preponderance of the evidence suggests that at least the first 5 of Abraham's children were born to Rebecca Miller and the last one, two, or three of his children to Mary Custer. Hannah and Elizabeth could have been the last children of Rebecca (and I have listed them this way) or the first two children of Mary. Apparently all the children were born in Chester Co., PA before Abraham and his second wife moved to Canada. But I have no primary sources to confirm the dates of the two marriages or which wife was the mother of each child.

Michael Bergy erected in 1830 the first saw-mill and small foundry which he located a little north of the present R. Forbes Co. site, near where a small spring creek joins the Speed. This streamlet was in those days considerably larger than its present volume. The writer's father told of having fished trout from it in his boyhood. The ruins of the old saw-mill, which has been described by some as a pail-factory and foundry, was a favorite playhouse for the boys a few decades back. Mr. W. A. Kribs, ex M. P. P. recalls the presence of old foundry patterns lying about the place of his boyhood days.

We must continue with the activities of Mr. Bergy who brought the second saw-mill in Bergy-town into existence. it was perhaps with the commencement of this second venture that the name of the place was changed to New Hope, but by the year 1840, Mr. Bergy's hope or interest in the second mill had faded to such an extent that he resold the property to Abram C. Clemens, from whom he had purchased the land. This second saw-mill was the one included in Jacob Hespeler's purchase. it was situated where another streamlet enters the Speed, the site being afterwards occupied by Mr. Hespeler's grist-mill near the stone dam which Hespeler placed in front of Bergy's wooden dam..2a

Mennonite families suffered misfortunes, such as childbirth deaths of women, accidental work deaths of men, frequent deaths of infants and young children, and the scourges of cholera, typhoid and tuberculosis. Cholera epidemics of the 1830s especially in July-August 1834 - could be devastating. Funerals were usually arranged by neighbours and friends, but the community was so demoralized in 1834 that, as Deacon Abraham L.

OBITUARY FOR ABRAHAM S. CLEMMENS

Died on the first day of the recent Christmas holidays, that is on December 25th last, Abraham S. Clemmens died in Waterloo township, Waterloo County, Canada West of apoplexy. He was formerly of Montgomery county, Pennsylvania. He was born in 1790 in Lower Salford township, in the aforementioned Montgomery county, and died at the age of 77 years, 9 months, and 18 days. He entered the holy state of matrimony on May 19, 1812 with Rachel Derstein of Bucks county, and emigrated to Canada with his family in the year 1825. He was happily married for approximately 52 years, and a widower for 3 years and 22 days. He sired 8 children, 6 of whom are still living, namely 3 sons and 3 daughters.

His descendants, with 51 grandchildren and 30 great-grandchildren, number consequently, 89 souls. On the day he died, he arose healthy and happy, sat down to breakfast after he had directed a loud and earnest prayer to the Giver of all good. He shoved aside a coffee cup which was sitting near him, and reached for the jug, to pour himself a drink of water, when suddenly, his hand fell. His son George, who had also just risen from the table, hurried over to help his father; his soul wanted to take leave of his body, and no human effort was of any help to him. He was speedily carried to his bed; but, he did not open his eyes again; his speech became weak and during the night that followed, approximately at 11.30 p.m., he slept away to his Lord. The deceased was generally respected and loved, and after he had accomplished much good, and ,we hope, useful things during his active life, he peacefully paid the debt of nature. For many years, he was the head of the Mennonite congregation there, and his eye was ever watchful over his flock. On the 29th instant, his body was taken to Cressman's Mennonite meeting-house, accompanied by a large number of friends and acquaintances, and committed to mother-earth, on which occasion the Rev. Hagey (at the deceased's house), and the Rev. Enoch Derstein (at the grave), spoke words of comfort and instruction to the crowd present, based on the text in the latter part of Verse 12, Chapter 4 of the Book of Amos: " Because I will do this to you, prepare to meet your God, 0 Israel!"2a

A Destructive Fire
Winterbourne's Only Industrial Establishment Wiped Out by Fire Clemens Mill Burned Last Night

Fire completely destroyed David Clemens' flourmill at Winterbourne last night. It is feared that loss of life resulted. Just at dusk on Tuesday evening a man with the earmarks of a tramp was seen near the mill. One of the surmises as to the origin of the fire is, that the tramp slept in the mill and, probably by the lighting of a pipe, set fire to the structure. An eye witness brings the report to town that shouts and screams were heard in the burning building, the cries gradually becoming fainter until all was still. The origin of the fire will probably always be a mystery. Others say that the fire had its origin in the engine room. The loss is fully $15,000 on building, machinery and stock. The building was a frame one and the flames were not long in devouring it. Amount of insurance not known.2a

6666 George Clemens, "eldest son of Abraham and Catharine Clemens, was born in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, in 1732. When a young man his father paid him his portion of legacy and he left Montgomery County and went to Chester County, same state, where he invested in real estate in both Pikeland and Charlestown Townships. In 1760-61 he erected a grist mill where he made quite a fortune. He was married to Elizabeth Carlisle. They lived retired for several years when he died in September, 1813, aged about 81 years. To him and his wife Elizabeth were born quite a family but the names of only two sons have been handed to the writer, namely: V Abraham and V George who both settled in the county of Waterloo, Ontario."1a

6668 George Clemens, "younger son of George and Elizabeth (Carlisle) Clemens, was born in Pikeland Township, Chester County, Pennsylvania, July 17, 1777. His boyhood days were spent on his father's farm and during the winter months he attended the public school and received such an education as the times afforded. It is well known that the facilities for obtaining a good common school education were at that time far inferior to what they now are. While visiting friends in Montgomery County during the winter of 1799 and 1800, Mr. Clemens was informed that numerous families intended to move either to the western part of the state or to Ohio, and even some were meditating of moving to Canada, the way-out-of-the-world country. No sooner was he in possession of this information than he hunted up such parties who were making preparations to move to Canada in order to receive all the information that could be obtained of this country at that time. Upon his return home he informed his father of what he had heard in regard to Canada. After listening to his son for some time, his father said: 'Well George, if all be true that you have heard in regard to Canada, it truly must be a good country to go to in order to seek one's fortune, but take my advice, first go and see the country for yourself.' During the winter of 1800-1 seven families of Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, made arrangements for moving to Canada which company Mr. Clemens joined. He drove one of the teams (see Historical notes on pages 22, 23, and 24 in regard to Mr. Clemens)and in May, 1801, he arrived where now the village of Blair is situated. After making a thorough inspection of this country he found everything beyond his expectations and immediately selected his land on which he settled. This was about one mile east of Preston, near Speedsville, on the farm now owned by his grandson, Isaac B. Clemens. After having cleared several acres of his land he erected a small log house and commenced housekeeping. In course of time he found the words recorded in Genesis 2:18 to be true, he therefore amended or improved his condition in life by taking to himself a wife in the person of Esther Stauffer who was born December 18th, 1790, and died August 17, 1836. After her decease he was married to (October 27th, 1840) Elizabeth, the widow of David Histand. She was a daughter of old George Bechtel and was born August 8th, 1792, and died July 21st, 1885. old Mr. George Clemens died August 10, 1863. To him and his first wife was born a family of eighteen children"1a

CLEMENS.--On the 8th of June, 1892, at High Banks, near Breslau, Waterloo Co., Ont., of neuralgic rheumatism, followed by general debility, Bro. Geo. H. Clemens, aged 60 years, 10 months and 13 days. His remains were laid to rest in the burying ground at the Cressman Mennonite church near Breslau, on the 11th, followed by a large concourse of relatives and friends. Funeral services were conducted by Bish. Elias Weber in German from Acts 9:6, and Pre. Noah Stauffer in English from 2 Cor. 5:1. Bro. Clemens was twice married. His first wife, Sister Salome Bowman, with whom he was joined in matrimony on the 4th of February 1851 died about 10 years ago. This union was blessed with nine children, of whom seven are still living. On the 15th of January, 1884, he was married to Sister Catharine Weichel.

Bro. Clemens was confined to his bed the greater part of the spring. At times his bodily sufferings were severe, but he possessed that sweet consolation which a firm trust in his Savior gives to the believer. His mind was fixed upon Jesus, and he was permitted to obtain a glimpse of that beautiful land for which he longed and of which he spoke repeatedly. He rejoiced in a crucified Redeemer, and enjoyed telling others of the grace of God. In practical piety and love for the cause of Christ he leaves a beautiful example for all. He spoke guardedly and encouragingly to those who were willing to accept Christ, and to them as well as to the brethren in the ministry, he was an able support and sympathizing friend, He was a true helping brother of the family of the church, as many both in and out of the ministry, can testify. The church of which he was a dearly beloved member feels deeply the loss it sustains, but none so much as the members of the family to whom he especially attached. They have lost a beloved companion, an affectionate father, the church a pillar, the community a kind neighbor. May the missionary spirit that was in him, burn in us and influence others to accept the Savior in whom he trusted and died. Nearly all of his family have accepted their Savior. May God comfort the bereaved hearts and give us grace to walk faithfully in the way of the Lord that we may meet our loved ones who have crossed death's river before us.

"O what has Jesus bought for me!
Before my raptured eyes,
Rivers of life divine I see,
And trees of Paradise.
I see a world of spirits bright,
Who taste the pleasures there;
They all are robed in spotless white,
And conquering palms they bear

6675 "(From the History of Lower Salford Township, by James V. Heckler.) Among the early Mennonites who came to Pennsylvania was one named Gerhardt Clemens, (Notes taken from his diary which he kept in the German Language, showing that his father's name was Jacob, and that Gerhardt, the old pioneer, was born in Germany in 1680. On March 8th, 1709, he settled with his brother John Clemens, for goods purchased in his store. This shows that he had a brother named John who, according to tradition, had settled in New York where he was engaged as a merchant. It is also said that he had a brother named Jacob who had settled in Chester County, Pennsylvania.) son of Jacob Clemens, arrived at Philadelphia in 1709. He settled in Skippack, Montgomery County, where he, February 14th, 1718, purchased, of David Powell, a tract of land containing 300 acres, situated on the north-east branch of the Perkiomen Creek. After the purchase was made the old progenitor cleared away the forest and erected his log cabin on the west side of the small stream aforesaid. He soon made additional purchases of land. We find in April, 1734, he was the owner of 690 acres of land. In 1726 he built the first grist mill in Lower Salford Township, Montgomery County. (The mill was built along a hill. The front was two stories high while the back was only one story. The mill was pulled down in 1823.) To Gerhardt and his wife Ann, were born three sons named III Abraham, III Jacob, and III John, and several daughters, the name of one was III Ann."

The descendants of III Jacob and his wife, Barbara, are quite numerous in Montgomery and other counties of Pennsylvania. He (Jacob) resided on part of his father's farm while III John, his brother received the mill and part of the old farm. He had a family of several children, one son named IV Gerhardt. No information has been received in regard to the daughters of II Gerhardt's, family. We shall now follow the descendants of the oldest son of II Gerhardt"1a

J. U. CLEMENS.

To the farmers of the surrounding district and even in the town itself, the name of Mr. J. U. Clemens was well known long before he opened out in New Hamburg five years ago. For Mr. Clemens had been in business as a general merchant in New Dundee for many years, subsequently going to Berlin. He is a gentleman with an honorable and successful business record to his credit and enjoys a good share of public confidence in and about New Hamburg. He does a general dry goods trade but makes it a Point to have something special before the public most of the time. To this end he handles much bankrupt stock and, as these are always first class goods, his patrons get genuine and very substantial bargains handed out very frequently. Especially in shoes and ready-made clothing, of which he carries a large stock, is this true. His stock of gents furnishings is complete and up to the minute at all times. But it is in ladies' high-class shirt waists that this store specializes. Mr. Clemens is proud of his offerings in this line and truly his selection is a splendid one. Ladies of the vicinity cannot make a mistake in looking through this store for a natty, stylish shirt waist.2a

Being very successful in his undertaking he engaged the Shantz Station school where he taught with marked success for some time, but in course of a few years he found the teaching profession an irksome and irremunerable one. He bid 'Adieu' to this calling and entered upon the study of medicine, and read under Dr. R. McIntyre, of Hespeler, and Dr. J. H. Webb, of the town of Waterloo, well known practitioners of the county, and attended the full course of lectures for four years at the Trinity College, Toronto, and graduated as a M. D., in 1880. Soon after graduating he located in Wellesley village where he had a good practice. Wishing to be located in some larger town, he came to Berlin in spring, 1889, where he has since gained a very large practice, thus proving to be one of our most successful doctors of the county. On February 14th, 1883, he was married to Edith, daughter of Walter Wells of Waterloo. Their family consists of two children".1a

On the 17th of Mar. 1899, at the Berlin Waterloo hospital, Berlin, Ont., after a very short illness of cerebro spinal meningitis, Dr. Levi Bowman Clemens, son of the late Bro. George Clemens of near Kossuth, Ont., aged 43 years, 8 months and 18 days. He was married on the 14th of Feb. 1883 to Edith Wells of Waterloo. To this union were born two children. His companion died about a year ago, also after a very short illness, and in the same hospital, an unsuccessful operation having been performed upon her. He enjoyed a very extensive practice, and his system gradually gave way under the excessive strain. He was highly esteemed by a large circle of friends, who deeply mourn his early death, but none so deeply as the two little ones now left alone to face the battle of life. May God direct their footsteps through the journey of life. Funeral on the 20th from his residence, Cor. Queen and Church Sts., Berlin. Services at the Presbyterian church by A. R.

Dr. L.B. Clemens

Great consternation was caused on Friday morning by the news that Dr. L.B. Clemens was seriously ill and lay close to death in the hospital. The doctor had visited a patient on Wednesday night, and towards morning, became so ill himself that he had to have a colleague take his place.

His condition became worse hour by hour and he began to lose consciousness more and more. Dr. Honsberger took over his treatment and had him admitted to hospital. Dr. Baumann of Waterloo and Dr. Fraser of Stratford were called into consultation. However, there was nothing that could be done to save the seriously ill patient. From Thursday afternoon, he did not regain consciousness, and soon after 6:30 p.m. on Friday evening, he passed away. The cause of death was "cerebral-spinal meningitis," an incurable ailment of the brain and spinal cord.

The deceased was born near Chicopee on June 27, 1855 and was a school-teacher in Shantz Station for several years. In 1880, he graduated as a physician and began his practice in Wellesley. On February 14, 1883, he married Edith Wells of Waterloo, who, almost two years ago, died almost as suddenly as he himself. After a restorative voyage to Australia, he settled down in Berlin in 1889 and soon acquired an extensive practice.

He took an active part in public life. He was a useful member of city council, county council, the board of trade and the health board. In 1898, he made many friends by his pleasant manner and especially, his excellent talent as a speaker. He was a member of the Presbyterian church and belonged to several clubs. He is survived by two children: girls, aged twelve and eight years, who now are alone in this world, with no father or mother.

The burial took place on Monday afternoon at 2:00 p.m. A large number of friends of the deceased had already gathered at his home before this time, to have a last glance at his earthly remains. The memorial service was held in the Presbyterian church, where Rev. Atkinson spoke in English and Rev. Noah Stauffer, in German. The burial took place in Mount Hope Cemetery. Pall-bearers were: E.P. Clement, C.K. Hagedorn, Jos. Bingemann, J.H. Landreth, Hy Knell, Jr. and W.V. Uttley.

The following floral tributes were made by friends and admirers: from City Council, a large wreath; from Berlin and Waterloo physicians, a broken wheel; from Grand River Lodge No. 151, a compass; from Guelph Valley S.R.M., a triangle; from Berlin Young Liberals, a large symbal; the Berlin Reform Association, a large cushion of roses and lilies; Miss N. Ruddell, bouquet; Union Lodge, C.O.F., an anchor. Among the mourners from out of town, were the following: Mr. and Mrs. Aaron Wenger, Ayton; Mrs. A.B. Clemens, Scranton, Pa.; Mrs. M.B. Clemens, Toronto; Mrs. D.L. Bowman, Toronto; Milo B. Clemens, Rochester; Mr. and Mrs. J. Nyce, Ida, Mich.3a

"The bright career of Dr. L.B. Clemens was closed at 6:40 last evening, when his spirit passed to its Maker, after an illness of less than two days.

Previous to his sudden and fatal attack, he had been enjoying his usual excellent health, and had not complained to any one of feeling unwell. He had intended to go to Stratford Friday.
About one o'clock on Thursday morning, he was called from home to attend a confinement case. He became suddenly unwell and sent for Dr. Honsberger to assist him. The latter was unable to respond to the call, and Dr. Cline was secured, to render the necessary assistance.

The latter gentleman reached the suffering Doctor about 5 o'clock in the morning. He found him dazed, and with his usual faculties dulled, so that he was not able to attend to the case in hand. He nerved himself sufficiently, however, to come home alone, between 9 and 10 o'clock on Friday morning. He was not rational then, and Dr. Honsberger hastily responded to the call. The patient was then delirious, and spoke only once, in response to the question asked him, that word being "Yes," when asked if he had a sore throat.

It was with the utmost difficulty that he was roused sufficiently; and his temperature was alarmingly high. His condition grew rapidly worse and Dr. Bauman of Waterloo was called in for consultation. Both were baffled at the mysterious case, and during the afternoon the now totally unconscious Doctor was removed to the Hospital in a cab. But the patient gradually sank, and only at intervals showed moments of partial consciousness.

Dr. J. Fraser, of Stratford, came on the 5 train, in response to a summons and after a consultation with the local attendants - at which Drs. Lackner, Noecker and McGillawee were also present, it was announced, after a thorough diagnosis, that the case was one of cerebro-spinal meningitis. All efforts to rouse him to consciousness were vain, and at 6:40 the vital spark had fled. In the place of the genial, kind-hearted Dr. Clemens, there lay only the cold clay. There were present at the bedside the medical men, Rev. R. Atkinson, Miss Duncan and Miss Wilson of the Hospital staff, Rev. Mr. and Mrs. Hallman, the latter a sister of the deceased. The two little daughters who had been at the Hospital during the afternoon, had been removed just before.

The cause of death was directly due to what is known as spotted fever, as shortly before the end came, dark colored spots appeared on the body. This was the conclusive and only evidence that led the physicians to arrive at a conclusion. The disease springs from a germ, and is quite epidemic, there being three other cases in town at present.

Shortly after 10 o'clock last night a post-mortem examination was conducted by Dr. Honsberger, and attended by the other physicians, excepting Dr. Fraser, for the purpose of verifying the diagnosis.

Samples of the brain matter were secured and will be sent to Toronto and London for pathological examination.

The remains were removed this morning to the undertaking establishment, where they were prepared for burial.

The case is a strange one, and it is believed that the recent train of events, coupled with overwork of professional duties, placed him in a position susceptible to disease. A few weeks ago, the deceased identified himself with the Presbyterian Church and made a profession of faith in Christ.

Levi B. Clemens, M.D., was born June 27th, 1855. His boyhood days were spent on his father's farm and in attending that old "Riverbank" public school. When well up in his "teens" he prepared himself to pass the departmental examinations as a teacher. Being successful in his undertaking he was engaged to teach the Shantz Station school and taught with marked success for some years, but finding the teaching profession irksome and unremunerative, he bade adieu to the calling and entered upon the study of medicine, reading up under Dr. McIntyre of Hespeler and Dr. J.H. Webb of Waterloo. Afterwards he attended and took a full four years course at the Trinity Medical College, Toronto, graduating as M.D. in 1880. Soon after this he located in Wellesley village where he gained a good practice. Hard work told on his constitution and he made a trip to Australia for a rest and a change. In 1889 he located in Berlin and here had secured a good practice. The life of a busy physician is very trying. This made great exactions on his constitution and some years ago he suffered severely from rheumatism, which after convalescence frequently troubled him.

On February 14th 1883 he married Edith, the accomplished daughter of Mr. Walter Wells of Waterloo and the union proved a most happy one. Two children blessed this union - daughters- Louie and Ruby. Early in 1897 Mrs. Clemens died, to the great sorrow of the husband, children and community. Consequently by the Doctor's demise, two young orphans are left to face the battle of life without the care and affection of their loving parents.

During his long residence in Berlin, Dr. Clemens succeeded in winning the confidence and esteem of his fellow citizens generally. He was ingenious and honorable and his genial nature and considerate acts won and retained many friendships. He made a good record as a public man. He served the citizens of Berlin for a number of years in the town Council and for two years was reeve. Last year he was a mayoralty candidate and though unsuccessful, made a splendid run. He was President of the Board of Trade in 1896 and at the time of his death was Medical Health officer.

In 1898 he was chosen as the Liberal candidate for the Legislature and made a strong fight against the successful candidate Dr. H.G. Lackner. He was a member of St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church and of a number of fraternal societies; among these he was a member of Grand River Lodge No. 151 A.F. & A.M. and a 32nd [degree] Scottish Rite Mason, a member of Court Union C.O.F. No. 235 and others.

On Monday afternoon at 2 o'clock the funeral will be held, from his late residence, to St. Andrew's church for service, after which the remains will be interred in Mt. Hope Cemetery. His death is an undoubted loss to the community and his memory will be long kept green in the hearts of many friends, while his two young daughters now left without mother or father will receive the commiseration of all."

DEATH OF MRS. ELSLEY.

At 12 o'clock on Sat. night last at the residence of her son, Mr. C. D. Bowman, Mrs. Elsley passed peacefully away. During the past two weeks, she has been seriously ill, and her physician, Dr. Ullyott, had but slight hope of her recovery. For a number of years Mr. and Mrs. Elsley resided in the village of West Montrose, but for some time past, owing to increasing feebleness, the old couple found a comfortable home in the commodious residence of her son, about a mile north of the village. There kind and loving hands ministered to the requirements of paralytic weakness, and encircled by tenderness and affection after a useful honored life this estimable lady in her seventy-eight year passed calmly to her eternal home. The funeral was held on Wednesday Oct. 19th after the hour of 10 o'clock a.m., the interment being at West Montrose cemetery. The various members of the family, who resided in Pennsylvania and New York arrived in time to see their well beloved mother prior to her departure for a better world; Mr. Byron Bowman, a successful druggist of Lyons, N. Y., Mr. George Bowman, Banker, and Rev. John Lynn M. A., Mr. Lynn and daughter Lida were present at the death bed. The beautiful and devoted life in harmony with the pure and ennobling graces of Christian character will live on in the memory of all who knew her in a more vital memorial than that of marble, a life that lives on, a blessed inspiration to surviving relatives and friends, pointing with no uncertain hand to a glorious immortality. Deceased was in her 78th year.2a

Hallman. - Mary (Clemens) Hallman was born Sept. 11, 1834; died Jan. 17, 1915, at the ripe old age of 80 y. 4 m. 6 d. She was united in wedlock July 18, 1852, with John S. Hallman, whose beloved companionship she enjoyed for 41 years. He preceded her 21 years. This union was blessed with a family of 5 sons and 7 daughters, all of whom are still living except one daughter who died in 1882. She was converted early in life and was a faithful and consistent member of the Mennonite Church for over 60 years. She was blessed with a wonderful constitution, for besides the cares and duties of raising a large family, she managed many a time to lend a helping hand in the families of neighbors, often succeeding well in the treatment of sick children in those olden days when doctors were few and far away. In her declining years she was afflicted with rheumatism and often longed to depart and be with Christ, but although she suffered much at times, she always seemed to be resigned to the will of the Lord, and we have the blessed hope that He has taken her to Himself. Funeral services were conducted at the Blenheim Church by E. S. Bauman from Jno. 14:18, 19, in German, and Jonas Snider from Rev. 14:13, in English. Buried in cemetery near the church2a
