The 
Royal Military College 
of Canada 


T HERE are few national institutions of more value and in- 
terest to the country than the Royal Military College of 
Canada. Notwithstanding this, its object and the work 
it is accomplishing are not sufficiently understood by the 
general public. i 
The College is a Government Institution, designed primarily 
for the purpose of giving instruction in all branches of military 
science to cadets and officers of the Canadian Militia, In fact, 
it corresponds to Woolwich and Sandhurst, 
The Commandant and military instructors are all officers on 
the active list of the Imperial Army, lent for the purpose, and 
there is in addition a complete staff of professors for the civil sub- 
jects which form such an important part of the College course, 
Medical attendance is also provided, 
Whilst the College is organized on a strictly military basis, 
the cadets receive a practical and scientific training in subjects 
essen tial to a sound modern education, 
The course' includes a thorough grounding in Mathematics, 
Civil Engineering, Surveying, Physics, Chemistry, French and 
English. 
The strict discipline maintained at the College is one of the 
most valuable features of the course, and in addition, the constant 
practice of gymnastics, drill and outdoor exercises of all kinds 
secures health and excellent physical condition, 
Commissions in all branches of the Imperial Service and Cana- 
dian Permanent Force are offered annually. 
The diploma of graduation is consid..,red by the authorities 
conducting the examination for Dominion Land Surveyor to be 
equivalent to a univerc;ity degree, and by the regulations of the 
Law Society of Ontario, it obtains the same exemptions as a 
B.A, degree, 
The length of the course is three years, in three terms of 9l 
months each, 
The total cost of the course, including board, uniform, instruc- 
tional material, and all extras, is about $800. 
The annual competitive examination for admission to the 
College takes place in May of each year, at the headquarters of 
the several military districts, 

 For full particulars regarding this examination and for any 
other information, application should be made to the Secretary 
of the Military Council, Ottawa, Ont,; or to the Commandant, 
Royal Military College, Kingston, Ont, I January. 1912

PREFACE. 


T HE first edition of "Canadian :Men and 'Vomen of the Time" 
appeared in 1898, It comprised a volume of 1,118 pages, royal 
octavo, and included, approximately, 2,891 sketches of living char- 
acters. Of these over 900, or almost 33 per cent., have since died, 
The volume met with a warm reception and was more than ordin- 
arily successful. Its circulation was large, and extended to the re- 
motest. corners of the world, It was and is to be found in all the 
principal public libraries of Europe, Asia and America, as well as in 
a great many private collections, It was largely used by the news- 
paper press, mostly, however, without acknowledgment, a species of 
plagiarism into which a p;rtion of the Fourth Estate seems to have 
fallen, in the present day, without any apparent sense of shame. 
Various works, modelled upon the same lines as the present one, 
have since been started in Canada, but none of them have answered 
the public expectation-hence a demand has arisen for :=t second edi- 
tion of cc Canadian :\len and Women of the Time," to meet which the 
present volume has been prepared. Like its predecessor, the Editor 
trusts that it may be found accurate, trustworthy, and up-to-date. It 
is certainly as complete, as regards the number of characters repre- 
8ented, as well as the facts and information touching them, as 
circumstances have permitted. If any name of importance has been 
omitted, the fault, upon examination, will be found not to rest with 
the Editor, but with someone more directly concerned. 
rrhe volume now submitted will be found to contain a greater 
number of names than the previous one, some 7,900 sketches being 
included within its folds. Of these some have died while the book 
was being published, but any such occurrences, with other unforeseen 
changes, will be found to be duly recorded in their proper place, 
A second volume, embracing portraits of the persons represented 
herein, will appear just as soon as all the portraits have been collected 
for the purpose. 
rrhe Editor has been indebted to many persons for various cour- 
tesies and other assistance received during the preparation of the 
book. A list of thes'e ladies and gentlemen is subjoined, and to one

menced studying the piano at age of 
5, and made her first appearance as a 
pianist at 12; soon afterwards went 
to Europe to continue her studies; 
spent 5 yrs. at the Berlin Royal Acad. 
High Sch. of Music, and took the high- 
est diploma for piano-playing; later, 
abandoned her intention of becoming 
a professional musician, deciding to 
become' a dancer instead. her idea 
being to represent music by dancing; 
after much fresh study, she made her 
first appearance as a dancer before an 
invited audience at the Conser. of 
Music, Vienna, in 1902; she was 
highly compHmented by the press; her 
first public appearance took place at 
the Theatre Molière, Brussels, and she 
subsequently performed at Berlin, 
Buda Pesth, Hamburg and Paris, at 
all of which places she aroused much 
enthusiasm; at London. where she 
appeared in .. The Vision of Salome," 
early in 1908, she became the rage, 
and had the honour of dancing before 
the late King and tlhe -present Queen 
Mother (q.v.); SlIJbsequently she suc- 
cessfully RJppæred in N. Y.; Ihas writ- 
ten and 'PubHshed 'her life; "is proud 
to claim Can. as 'her country."-Ca1"e 
Canadian Office, London, Eng. 
"As Salome she has brought pose 
dancing to perfection. Her costume gives 
a luxurious impression of Oriental gor- 
geousness. Her figure is as symmetrical 
as Canova's Venus. Above her slender 
waist U seems to be unconcealed except 
for jewelled trappings. Her feet. which 
are not too small but finely modelled, are 
bare and she gets expression even into her 
pink toes. She impresses her spectators 
by the power of her representation and by 
the varied intensities of her facile expres- 
sion, and, best of all, shf' does not appeal 
to the baser passions."-N. Y. World.

vice means that; it means the mak- 
ing of men physically, Intellectually 
and morally; It means instilling re- 
spect for law and order; it means 
placing the responsibilities of citI- 
zenship where they belong, not on 
the few who are willing to volun- 
teer, but on the shoulders of every 
man; .one of the objects of patri- 
otic service is to safeguard the na- 
tion against war, by showing that we 
are prepared for it, and to ensure 
that, should war break out, the whole 
national forces may be brought to 
bear, in order to speedily re-estab- 
lish peace."-Cayuga, Onto

Jl. Comte. of 1.he P.e. in Eng., his SeT- 
vices being retained In many cases 
taken there from the Dom.: was chief

was chief counsel for the Dam. in the

Quebec, atter the previous census, 
1904: was also the chief counsel In the 
Alaska Boundary case, but had to 
throw up his brief on account of sud- 
den Illness; his 'Political career began 
in 1867, the epoch of Confederation: 
early espoused the Lib. cause, and was 



110 


often Importuned to enter ParIt.; In 
the year mentioned was elected both 
to the Ho. of Commons and the Legis- 
lature; was Immediately offered the 
leadership of his party In the latter 
body, but it was not till 1869 that he 
consented to aücept that position; on 
the de,feat of the Sandfield Macdonald 
govt., Dec., 1871 (an event largely due 
to his efforts), was called upon to form 
a new Admn., and succeeded In the 
task; he himself took the office of 
Presdt. of the Council without salary; 
on the abolishment of dual representa- 
tion, some time later, resigned the 
Premiership with the view of devoting 
the whole of his attention to Federal 
politics; in the H.C. he was urged to 
accept the leadership, but declined the 
honour; was, nevertheless, one of the 
greatest champions In the well-remem- 
bered con test OVier the Pacific Scandal, 
which resulted In the downfall of Sir 
John A. Macdonald; when Mr. Mac- 
kenzie became Prime Minister of Can., 
accepted a position In his cabinet, with- 
out office; was sworn of the Privy 
Council, Nov. 7, 1873; In Feb., 1874, re- 
signed owing to lll-heaHh; In May, 1875, 
accepted office as Mlnr. of Justl
, 
and while such undertook an official 
mission to Eng., touching amendments 
to the law of extradition, etc.; was 
mainly Instrumental In perfecting the 
constitution of the Supreme Ct. of Can. 
at Its establishment, and personally 
selected the judges first apptd. thereto; 
after the diefeat of the Mackenzie Govt. 
at the pons, 1878, was chosen leaàer 
of the Lib. party In the H.C., In place 
of the ex-Premier, whose health had 
become Impaired by his arduous official 
labours; remained In that position until 
ø.fter the g.e. of 1887, when he retired 
and W3!S succeeded .by !Mr. (JlJOW Sir 
W.) Laurler; subsequent to that event 
took no prominent part either In the 
debates In the House, or In the general 
work of his party; at the g.e., 1890, 
ðeclined renomination, and sent to his 
constituents In West Durham a letter 
expressing his views of the condition 
and prospects of the country; this 
letter was believed to be of the greatest 
Importance, but It was not pUblished 
until after the elections; when the 
letter was made pUblic it created a 
genuine sensation, for It not only an- 
!bOunced the great leader's retirement 
from political life, but expressed the 
gravest forebodings concerning the 
future of Can.; U The splendid oratory 
and brilliant genius of Mr. B.,.. says 
Mr. Adams (q.v.), from whose work at 
biography we 'have ,taken some of the 
facts herein, U were keenly missed In 
Parlt., and many were the hopes ex- 
pressed that he would recon.slder his 
determination, and return to his right- 
ful place as leader of his party to; in 
June, 1892, these hopes were dispelled 
by his acceptance of an Invitation ex- 
tended to him by the le.ad.eJI's of the 
Irish parliamentary party to accept a 
seat In the Brit. H.C.; he landed In 
Irel. a few weeks prevIous to the 
electJIO'll of 1892, and was reælvoo with 
great cordiality; he stood for the con- 
stituency of South Langford and was 
returned by a very large majority; 
his advent Into Imp. politics was made 


BLAKE. 


under the most auspidous circum- 
stances, and fully justified the fondest 
hopes of his !rlends; he continued to 
sit for South Langford while he re- 
mained a memo of the Brit. ParIt., and 
did much to popularize the Irish cause 
throughout the Empire; was presented 
to Queen Victoria, Buckingham Palace, 
July, 1882, and again, subsequently; 
In 1894 he was elected a memo of the 
Extve. Comte. of ttIe II'IIsh ParlIament- 
ary party; in the same year he was In- 
cJm<1ed in tlhe Royal Comn., apptd. Do 
enquire Into the finanC'lal relations 
between Gt. Brit. and Irel.; this Comte. 
reported that Irel. was bearing an un- 
fair share of taxation, and In 1897 he 
was selected to move an amendment to 
the address In reply to the Queen's 
speech on the subject; later, he moved 
a substantiV1e resolution thereon; In 
1895 he went to New Zealand, to serve 
as arbitrator between the New Zealand 
Govt. and the New Zealand Midland 
Ry. Co., and made his award In Dec., 
wholly In favour of the Govt.; In 1896 
he was one of the comte. of 15 of the 
H.C. appointed to Investigate South 
African affairs and the causes of the 
TraIl'SV1aa1 raid; his cross-examination 
of Cecil Rhodes has been spoken of as 
"a masterly piece of work to; he was 
very successful in obtaining funds for 
carrying on the work of the Irish 
Parliamenrtary party, and contributed 
himself Largely thereto; to the election 
fund of the McCarthylte wing of the 
NatLonallst party, 1895, his subscrip- 
tion was n,ooo; was arbitrator for 
Nfd. In the Reld-Nfd. Govt. case, 1904- 
5; in the same year was elected chair- 
man of Comtes. (H.C.); was the first 
(and for 14 yrs. continuously) presdt. 
of the Toronto Gen!. Trusts 00. ; on his 
resignation of the office, 1896, the 
other directors of the Co. presented 
the Ont. Legislature with his portrait 
In oils, "to mark their esteem for him 
and their appreciation of his services 
In some lasting way to; throughout his 
career, his Interest In education-and 
especially higher education-has been 
most marked; he was eLected Chan- 
cellor .of the Unlv. of Toronto, 1873; 
In 1888 he gave $2,500 to found 
scholarships In poUtlcal science In that 
Institution, and In 1891 he agreed to 
give $20,000 as a fund towards en- 
dowing junior matriculation scholar- 
ships therein; after the destruction of 
.tihe 'buHdlngs Off ,the Un-Iv. by fire. 1890, 
he gave largely to the rebuilding fund. 
and did much otherwise to assist In 
tble 'W1OTk of l'eStoratilon; he declined 
a K. C. iM. G., :for his pUblic 'services. 
1876; 'Was a del. 1:0 the 3rd Com-
