Career of Late Timothy Eaten Should
Be Inaplration to All Buaineaa Men
���Personal Sketch.
Whatever may be the prevailing
Western opinion resiiecilng the patronage of Eastern departmental stores,
the history of a successful business
man, such as that of the late Timothy
Eaton, Is worthy of business emulation.
The late Mr. Timothy Eaton was born
in Ireland, at Clogher. so miles from
Belfast, and nut tar �����n. Slcmlsh,
fumed in in., vatnatH as the place wuera
Sl. Patrick herded sheep during his sojourn in Ireland. Mr. Katun's forefathers migrated from Scotland nearly
200 years ago. They, with many other
Scotch families, formed a settlement,
and for several generations engaged in
agrarian pursuits.
He was the youngest of a family of
nine. Before his birth his father died,
and hla widowed mother faced the
world with a dependent family and
nothing to support IL She was ambi-
Houb tor ber children, however, and
managed to give them the advantage of
such education as could be acquired at
the national school In Clogmr. Farming In those days was not conducive to
the acquirement of great wealth. The
most favorable years found the tollers
little wealthier than before, and when
calamities In the form of crop failure
befell, they were In dire need. The
year 1846 was one of the darkest lu the
history of Ireland. The potato crop
was mined with rot; other crops were
partial or total failures and starvation
stalked through the land. Those who
were able emigrated; the others bore
their sufferings patiently.
Among those who left tor other lands
to seek their fortunes was lbe eldest
member of the Eaton family, About
the same time, Timothy, the youngest,
waa apprenticed to a draper at Port-
glenone, a small market town on the
bank! of the River Banu, celebrated as
one ot the belt fishing streams ln all
Ireland. Portglenone Itself was notorious tor the free fights lhat characterized every market day, fights that al
last became so furious that the market
wis abolished altogether, and only
within the last few years has permis-
���lon been granted for Its re-establishment At the end of five years, the
term of Ibe apprenticeship, the subject
of the sketch was given his wages,
which amounted to something like
��100, and with thii be took passage
to Canada.
He arrived In Canada In 1857, and
loon afterward opened a store at Kirk-
ton, In Huron county. At that time
little money waa lu circulation. Produce waa traded for goods, and goods
in turn were bought for produce. Roll-
ways wer eunknown, and the merchant
was compelled to do his own freighting. With wagon and oxen he hauled
his produce to the nearest |K>rt nnd returned laden wltlh merchandise, which
was again exchanged for produce. After astay of short duration tit Klktton,
Mr. Eaton moved to St. Marys, where
he conducted a store for some years.
Not satisfied with Ihe trading system
there In vogue as elsewhere, he diced-
ed to move to Toronto, where money
was sufficiently plentiful lo permit of
his desire to conduct business on a
cash basis. Thi! he always regarded
a, the only sound and honest system.
and thla system he Institutes! in his
wide builnesi sphere when ho established In Toronto.
In Toronto he opened a small store
on Yonge street, below    Kins     These
quarters were abandoned for more
commodious ones at 178 Yonge street;
and these were later on vacated when
still more desirable accommodation was
secured nl 190 Yonge street, the preaent address of the company. The reason for the Inst move wbb thut Mr.
Eaton looked Inlo tbe future. In his
imagination lie pictured the present establishment, und he saw clearly that
expansion was Impossible In the block
below Queen street. A blrdHcye ulew
of the present premises bears out the
wisdom of the move. The enormous
growth of the business is u standing
testimony to the truth of the old adage,
"Honesty is the best policy."
The history of Mr. Eaton's late years
is the history of the growth of the
business. He was Its Inspiration, Its
mainstay, Its guiding star. Through all
the stages of its development he had
held the tiller; he steered it clear of
shoals, and at last brought il in safety
to the port that he had striven for, to
make the business a national Institution, an institution that ministers to the
needs of a nation, an Institution that
occupies an Important place ln the economy of the country. While in St.
Mary's Mr. Eaton married Miss Margaret Beatty. of Woodstock. They had
five children, three sons and two
daughters. All are still living except
the eldest son, Mr. E. Y., who died five
years ago.
The late Mr. Eaton's successor at the
head of the T. Eaton company will be
his eldest son. Mr. John C. Eaton, the
present vice-president of the company,
who has been closely associated with
his father In the conduct of the great
establishment. It ls largely due to his
untiring energy that a store has been
established in Winnipeg. Of a buoyant nature, be was seised with the spirit of the West, and like many other
business men. he sees a great future
for the granary of th eempire.

which has prevailed In those parts for
the past few weeks. Tbe power plant
at Hedley City has also been forced
to close down, and 'al there is very

It is a responsibility too vast to be
measured by mere figures or described
in mere language.
No fanciful theories, untried methods
or mere experiments are proposed. The
simple God-given remedies, viz.. Fresh
air, suitable food, rest and exercise,
under expert supervision, and suits.
ble cheerful surroundings, have more
than proved their efficiency. Practically speaking, these requisites are obtainable only In a sanltorlum.
A further advantage connected with
such an institution is tliat the admission of a patient means the removal of
one source of contagion from the general community, and when, after treatment, such person is returned cured,
or otherwise, to the ranks of the public, be or she is an educational centre
of first importance, because the first
principle Impressed on a patient on entering a sanatorium ls the care he
should exercise In his personal habits;
the necessity for cleanliness, for care
in disposal of anything about him
which would spread, or even be likely
to spread, contagion: In a word, he Is
persistently taught to move and live
so that no otber human being shall be
likely. In the remotest sense, to suffer
on account of any thoughtlessness on
his part tn tbe care of hlmielf. guch
a person, when discharged from the institution Is, by his training ln the sanltorlum, not only Impressed with the
necessity for continuing such caution,
but because of his knowledge so gained, becomes in bis family and general
surroundings an educational Influence
infinitely more effective than all the literature and arguments of physicians
and authorities on the subject.
The condition! as to consumption are
not only fully -understood, but are well
recognised, and it la now an accepted
fact that consumption Is preventable
and may be cured, or Its course arrested. That being so, Inaction is. to say
Ihe least, criminal. Il is our duty to
endeavor. In any case, to stem the progs ess of this sacrifice of human beings.
lt Is imuposed to build a sanltorlum
in British Columbia. The provincial
government is prenareii to assist, and
the people generally, through local societies formed all over the country, are
willing to maintain. You are asked to
help us build. Action, Immediate action, is imperative, If we wish to stem
this awful tide of mortality. To stand
idly by any longer la tantamount to
being willing participators in -something
worse than race suicide.

6100,000 for the erection of a building

Is a consumptive sanltorlum ueeded?
During the month of September of last
year a boy 19 years old became consumptive. He lived in a hotel and was
dependent on his own efforts ae a laborer. As a result of bis disease he
was turned out of three hotels and refined admisalon to a public hospital.
The boy is now dead. A man wbo befriended the boy wrote as follows:
"God have mercy on us for our neglect
ot such cases!" Need we further ask
is this Institution needed?
The death roll from consumption In
Canada exceeds 12,000 yearly; In British Columbia lt is over 200.
The number of persoui invalided
from consumption Is authoritatively
estimated to be five times as great
as the number ot deaths therefrom;
therefore, we have some 60,000 Invalids In Canada, and 1000 ln British Columbia.

of  Imperial organltatlon.    In   respect
,.:  sis ��� develo) m  ol  lhal  organlia
lissn. lie pointed mn lhal there is a
,-i,,,i,, helwet si two methods, One
method, which wai baaed upon the aa*
sumption that tbe existing organltatlon
li impel!-ssiy deficient, postponed ipe-
i-itis- acta of Imperial cooperation,ludh
as reciprocal trade arrangements or
consultation aboul foreign attain, until
tin machinery shall huve been Initalled
which, ii is Imagined, is required for
dealing with euch matters.
The other method which be ailvocat-
ed was to loee no opportunity of effect-
inn the particular acta of co-operation,
using whatever makeibift machinery
already existed, In the expectation that
the attendant diftlcultlel should themselves suggest the necenary Improvementi. He concluded: "History '">
doubt leaches us to anticipate the day,
however distant, when the Instinct of
patriotism will really lei the general
welfare or the Empire before lhe welfare oi the particular fatherland, At
some future date the goverpmenta in
iiiiileieiire may agree m subordinate
ihemselvi's 10 an external authority,
flrsi advisory and afterward! legislative nnd executive. Bul il is my humble belief thai for our generation the
principle of national government! In

of subsidiary machinery, represent* the

look for Iiis subject, "Notes on Imperial
Orgnnlaatlon." Dr  Qeo  It. Parkin was
In ihe chair.   Mr. Jehb st.-ni ,1 wiili the
Idea tlsai the siniimiM nt a new and individual nationality, lu ihe modern and

peilal union DUgbi its be contemplated
as a close form of International alliance

unity.       That  being ss,. tbe practical
question was bow t" develop gradually
the machinery requisite for sn International co-operation  far mon-  Intimate
nnd  comprehensive  than   Is associated
wiih the ordinary Idea ot alliance.    In
lils view ihe central principal of Imperial organization was to bs. sought In a
system   of  consultation   between   lhe
government* of the allied  nations by
nn ans of frequent conference! and permanent ambassadors; lho Colonial or
Imperial confeneuce   and    Ihe -agents-
gcneral seeming to hlm to be a  good
starting poini. The conference, confined
to  reipomlblc   ministers,   was   coterminous with the national governments
��ollocH��ely. and  true to  the  principle
of alliance.   But a conference admitting
aon-mlnlsterlal members would be ex-
t- nml lo the governments collectively,
and therefore would represent rather
the principle of federation.
Auy additional machinery which
proves necessary for si, ciflc purposes
as time goes on should be created by
ausl strictly subordinated to the govern-
in. nis in conference, lie expressed a
strong belief In the supreme importance
Of preferential trade, wjleh he regarded

There were people opposed lo prefer-
ence in tbe colonies, the notion bl Ing
ihai England is being asked to sacrifice
herself on the Imperial nllar. Me therefore suggested to tariff reformer! that
Ihey slisstilsl treat Mr. Chamberlain's
proposals as primarily an Insular question, and only Incidentally an Imperial
question. He noted, in respect of Imperial organisation, thai preferential
arrangements have already been concluded between certain of the partner
nations, and declared that he could not
sec- how preferential trade could be
discussed In conference furthei than it
bai been until we had adapted our national tarlfr to the Imperial purpose,
The idea ol alliance suggested that
lhe scleral nations iuil-Iii tsi maintain
naval ami military forces of their own.
and this conception of Imperial defence
was gaining ground, especially in Australia and Canada. The obvious policy
"was to encourage the younger nations
to lay the foundations of future navies
which might relieve the I'nled Kingdom
of posterity from single-handed and
Over-costly Imperial responsibility. The
notion of alliance did not preclude but
positively sanctioned the idea lhat each
partner nation should equip itself for
war on a recognized scale, it implied
a contract covering willingness to fight
and  ability  to fight.
His eoneepllon of Imperial defence
would be fulfilled as regarded defence
when each partner state gave all Its
young men a rudimentary military education, entrusted home defence to an
efficient "citizen" army of whatever
kind It preferred, supplied contingents
to an Imperial striking force stationed
centrally in Souih Africa, and furnished
a national squadron or squadrons to an
Imperial navy. Our special understandings with foreign natious embarrassed
us ln Imperial conference about foreign
affairs, the claims of our foreigu
friends who had the ability to fight In-
It was against a combination of men

Tomorrow wil] be Qiilnqtiagesima
Sunday, or the Sunday next before
I.ent. Tuesday will be Shrove Tuesday,
uml Wednesday Ash Wednesday, the
first day of the season of Lent, and
Thmsiluy is St. Valentine's day, hardly
a rellKloiis festival, alihotiBh named
from s iilotiH Ins-Insji of lhe early church.
Aliliisiss'.ii iireteded in tlie church year
hy another period of fasting und abstinence** (Advent), Lent ls and has always
been the great penitential season of
the church.
To many Lent signifies only a period
during which public festivities and entertainments are suspended. But to
the serious il Is a nol unwelcome season for review of spiritual growth, or
decline, and for meditation on the later days of Christ's earthly ministry,
and what Its significance i6 to the
world. It is the serious and solemn
meditation, not the refraining from
amusements and pleasures, or the par-
tiui abstinence from meat and rich
fare, that Ib the essential feature of
Lenten observance, although undoubtedly the double seir-denial Is an aid If
not a necessary condition to the spirit
or meditation and self-searching.
It is considered not unlikely that
Pope Pius X. will absolve the Romanist
world from fasting during Ixnt of 1807.
as Pope Leo XIII. did In 1S90. and for
the same reason an almost world-wide
prevalence of la grippe witli Its weakening effects, whlph would make fasting dangerous to health

railway, who was In tlie city today.
"You will understand,'* he continued,
"that we do not kick at missing Ihe
mall for a day or two, hut when it
tomes to a whole week the thing Is
past a joke. Now, fo, Instance, one
week ago we were without a mall at
the point where 1 live for six days, and
again we had no service from Thursday last until this morning. Mind you.
we are only 25 utiles from Winuipeg
and there ls a line of railway, the C.
N R. running within a few hundred
yards of the postoffice.'*
"What have you done in the matter
of mall service?"
"What can we do? We have had the
mall sent out by a team. It would
probably have remained in the poet-
office another week If we had not taken some action. Surely there Is some
penalty for the non-delivery of mails. If
the railway cannot carry out their contract the postoffice authorities should
hire a rig and charge it to the com.
pany. The government has no business to let Ihe people suffer this Inconvenience. The i-oads in the country
are not first class bm a good driver
will huve no difficulty In making seven
miles an hour witli a good team and ���
light load. I hope you win publish my

here that the Manitoba government
will undertake to finance a railway line

Ing heavy freight rates. It Is planned
to start the construction of the line at
