ANOTHER  NEW  FIRM.    Mr. Robert mathison has disposed of his job printing business to messrs., E.W. Evans and T. W. Hastings.  The senior of this new firm, Mr Evans, has occupied the onerous position of foreman in the composing-room of The world since its inception, the duties of which office he ever discharged with a fidelity to the employer and employed, which at once endeared him to everyone in the establishment. Being an excellent workman, strictly temperate, thoroughly reliable and conscientious in all his dealings with his fellowmen, we bespeak for him a prosperous business career in his new field of labor. The public will find him to be all we have thus pictured him.  In a sense we regret his severance with this establishment, but, as he has lauched out for himself, our very best wishes go with him, as do likewise those of the entire establishment.  His associate, Mr. T. W. Hastings, is a graduate of The Mercury office, Guelph, and he likewise is a first-class workman and of an obliging disposition.  He occupied the position of foreman for a considerable time in the job printing office of Messrs. Thomson Bros, of this city.  The new firm will be styled Evans & Hastings.  From our personal knowledge of them we ask for them a continuance of the patronage so liberally bestowed upon the founder of the concern, Mr. Robert mathison, Jr., who has now been in business for himself since shortly after the disastrous fire in 1886, and has already netted for himself a competency in his business transactions which enables him to take the world easy, for a time at least.  He enjoyed the confidence of the public, and in no instance did he ever betray it.  he will now devote his attention to other matters, such as real estate and manufacturing industries, in which he is interested.  Mr. Evans has been succeeded by Mr. Dunn, for some time assistant foreman in The Globe, Toronto.  --Vancouver Daily World, Aug. 9, 1890.
