.INTRODUCTION 



This book contains the biographical sketches and photographs of all the 
Senators and Members of the Canadian Parliament. 

It is the only one of its kind published in this country and it will 
undoubtedly prove useful to those who take interest in our public affairs. 

Care has been taken to write these sketches with the greatest accuracy, 
the facts in most cases having been supplied by the Members and Senators 
themselves. 

The important place held by the Dominion of Canada in the world to-day 
justifies us in making such a publication.

ERRATA. 



The author of this book begs the indulgence of the reader for a 
few unimportant errors. One will readily understand how difficult it is to 
gather all the information required to write the biographies of public men 
who live in all parts of this extensive Dominion. 

In the biography of Sir Wilfrid Laurier, the mention of the conferring 
of a D.C.Iy. on the Premier by Oxford and Cambridge Universities was 
omitted. 

Under the photogravure of Sir Richard Cartwright, the title of 
" Right Honorable " is not given by a mistake. 

Some of the honorable gentlemen are styled as Q. C.'s whilst they 
are actually K. C.'s. 

Hon. Mr. Lemieux is a Professor of Law at Laval University, besides 
being a lecturer. He is also a member of the National Liberal Club, of 
London, England, and he represented the Dominion in several important 
cases before the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council. 

The birthday of Hon. Hewitt Bostock is May 31, 1864, and not 
1844 ; that of Mr. E. N. Lewis is September 15, 1858, instead of 1856. Mr. 
Lewis was married in 1887 instead of 1897, anc ^ tne name of Mrs. Lewis is 
Julia L. Dwighf, not Welsh. 

The date of the bye-election at which Dr. Wilbert Mclntyre was 
elected to Parliament is April 5, 1906. 

Mr. J. Tolmie was elected in North Bruce on October 30, 1906, by a 
majority of about 350. He was born on August 31, 1845, at Laggan, In- 
verness-shire, Scotland. He is a Manufacturer and sat in the House of 
Commons for West Bruce from 1896 to 1900. 

There have been changes in the cabinet since the first pages of the 
book were printed. 

The late Hon. R. Prefontaine was replaced by Hon. L. P. Brodeur ; 
Hon. Mr. Fitzpatrick became Chief Justice of Canada and was replaced at 
the head of the Department of Justice by Hon. Mr. Aylesworth to whom 
Hon. Mr. Lemieux succeeded. Hon. Mr. Templeman became Minister of 
Inland Revenue. 

The publication of this book has been delayed by the difficulty we 
had in securing some photographs, but it is brought up to the Queen' s- 
Shelburne bye-election on October 31, 1906, when Hon. Mr. Fielding was 
elected by a majority of 992 over Prof. Weldon.
