PRKFACE 




'IIIC KKCKNT phenonunal j,'rowlh ami tin.' marvellous dcVLlopiiKiU of the trade and industry of 
Toronto, together witli the increasing attraetions of the eity both as a place of residence and as the 
metropolis of the Province, have led the Proprietors of Tin-; Mail to prepare a work of a somewhat 
amhitious character which shall deal with the chief features of its local history and civic life. 'I'he 
work which now a|)|iears. it is hoi)ed, will prove in some measure worthy of the occasion which it is 
designed to commemorate, namely, the completion of the first century in the synchronous annals of 
the Province and its Capital, 
hough the scope of the volume, as its title indicates, is limited to Toronto, Old and New, the work 
eriy lays claim to more than local support. It does so for two valid reasons; hirst, because the annals 
' citv. as we all know, begin, run parallel with. and. to a large eMent. are really those of Ontario ; and. 
llv, because Toronto, from its metropolitan character, has now become the focus of the Province, and 
people in all parts of il take a live interest in its affairs, look to it in the main for their intellectual 
■nance, and feel a just pride in the status to which it has attaine<l and the promise of greatness which 
still before it. How large a space Toronto tills in the records of our young ( 'ommonweahh. few even of 
ti-^ens stop to think. Take its history out of >he chroniile of the n.itional life of Pritish Canada iTid 
much of political, induslri.d. and so< ial interest udu'u be gone. What is true of the national is true also of the civic annals 
of the Provincial Capital. Let any old resident recall the successive aspect of things in the local ernironnient of his life, and 
how much will he have t<> tell in the city's praise. lUit Toronto is not only endeared to us by the history of the past, and by 
the associations which cluster round its social ai.d civic life. It has a real and practical |>resent day mtercst. which grows with 
every year of its corporate growth as well as with every stride in its industrial and commercial ilevelopment. Nor is the story, 
important as it is in its material aspects, without its human interest ; for behind the money are the toilers who have made it, and 
within the institutions, factories, and' warehouses are ihe forces of brain and muscle that make for its acli\ities. .\or ha\e 
these forces alone found development in the fields of industry and trade. Other and higher lields have enlisted their service, 
and to their beneficent operation the city owes much of its intellectual and moral advancement. 

Of these various matters. Toronto, Old niiJ Nfit: endeavours succinctly but graphically to treat, .\iming at being a 
thoroughly representative volimie, it deals with most of the various forces and activities that have made Toronto a vast com- 
nierci.d emporium, a great railway centre, the literar) "hub" of the Dominion, the Mecca of tourists, an l-^piscopal and .\rchie- 
piscopal See, and the ecclesiastical headcpiarlers of many denomiii.itions, the seat of the l.iw courts, the ProviiK ial l.egislatnri', 
the imiversilies. colleges, and great schools of learning. \\ hile it has given prominence to trade and commerce, and dealt 
with the banks and other monetary institutions, the loan and insurance companies, and the mamifactories and larger importing 
and tr.uling houses, it has devoted no little of its space to the v.nious professions, setting forth their rise and growth in the 
community and given some account of the men who have risen to eminence iii' them. Interest in this, as in the other 
biographical departments of the work, it is hoped, has been enhanced by the gallery of portraits; while the historical and 
descriptive sections have, it is believed, been enriched by the many views of the streets, churches, villas, residences and public 
buildings which the volume contains. 

The ilesign has been to make the book an important .uul pleasing exposition of the principal phases of Toronto's com- 
mercial and industrial as well as social and iiUellectn;d life, and, if possible, ;i worthy tribute to the genius ;md nation-building 
iiualities ol her toiling sons. In carrying out this purpose the present writer gratefully acknowledges his indebtedness to the 
Proprietors of Tin- M mi., to whose enter'iri .e ;nul public spirit any success the volume may meet with will be entirely due. 'To 
the Rev. Henry Scadding, I). I)., the vener, ble chronicler of Karly Toronto, he is particularly beholden for the introduction, 
tthi( h, coming from so interesting a source, will doubtless be specially valued by the reader.

TORONTO, OLD AND NEW. 



INIkODUCl'ION 



IIV TFIK Ki;V. IIKNKV SCAIIIUM;, D.D. 

THIC \ OI.UMIC here presented siiiijilies the reader with a lively picture of the devclopiiient of a city from its first germ 
to lull eflloresceiice, a consiimiiiatioii reached in the comparatively brief space of less than ten decades, destined it 
is hoped to he maintained perennially by theconlimied "Iiuhistry, Intelligence and Integrity" of its inhabitants in all 
time to come. There is im,i a city, town or village of the Province of Ontario which might not, had the proper 
precautions been taken years ago, have a like record of itself. 

The fault has been the non-establishment at in early period, of a i)ioneer and historical society for every county of 
the Province, associations of intelligent |,crsons taking a real interest in the first foundations of settlements, zealous to collect 
and put on record minute particulars relative thereto. In the absence of such societies important document.s, plans and diagrams 
of much local interest arc continually lost, and characteristii' narratives and anccilotes of enterprising men p.i.ss wholly into 
oblivion. Something has been done in the direction of forming such societies In the Counties of V'ork, Peel, Wentworth, 
Welland, and Lincoln, but it is important that the practice should become general throughout the Province. ICvery city, town, 
and village would then have it in its power, from lime to time, to report progress in regard to itself in as (ileasing and satisfaitory 
a manner as the Capital of the Province is enabled to do in the present volume. It is singular to observe in the works which 
some years .ago were much in vogue, descriptive of ideal commonwealths and cities, that amidst all their arrangements, a 
provision for the maintenance of a standing record of the kind suggested is lacking. In a land like this, where in the future 
new communities are likely continually to be coming into existence, on more or less ideal principles, care should be taken to 
supply the omission. 

The .New World has been a field for making many expei.ments, having in view the material and moral advan<'emcnt of 
mankind, from the days of the Jesuits in Paraguay down to those of loseph .Smith, at Nauvoo, and Brigham N'oung, at .Salt 
Lake City. Unfortunately, extravagances characterize many of these efforts; fanatii ism, superstition and a subtle though 
unconscious selfishness have led to failures which it might be supposed every reasonable man would have foreseen. On the 
other hand, where the more moderate priniiples that usually guide ordinary mortals have been followed, as amongst ourselves 
and other off-shoots of the ISritish stock on this continent, many examples of a very fair degree of success arc to be met with. 
Ill this category, loronto may be cla.s.sed.

now the fair City of 'roroiito, tlie startled onlookers were a floek of wild fowl and a 
(■nii|ile of families of ilie Cliildren of the Wood. At the time we speak of, in tli ■ 
lieaiiliful basin of Toronto Harbour, if we except thi' noiseless movements durinj; the 
hours of day of one or two Mississ;iga Indians, solitude reigned supreme. When the 
sun went down even Nature became still. .\s night fell upon the siene, the pines 
ceased their n.oaning, and nought was heard save the occasional splash of beaver or 
mus(|uash in the waters of the forest-screened harbour, or the cry of the wood-duck as it 
took (light for its evening haunt In the recesses of the wood.s. Hut the year 1793, 
whi( h we are aicustomed to speak of as that of the founding of the capital of Ontario, 
was what may be called the nie>!ia;val era in 'Toronto's annals, for the place had an 
earlier history. 'This history is spread over the fateful period of the dominion of f'rance 
in Canada, in connection with her commene with the Indians and with the thrilling 
story of the Jesuit Missions. 
Ilie early years of the seventeenth century were big with enterpriM' and M,;:'hil of results lor the American Continent. 

Maritime adventure then sought on the .\tlantic the field which had hitherto been monopolized by the .Meiliterranean ; the 

New World for the first time saw a fringe of colonies fa.sten upon its coasts. In 1(107, X'irginia was coloni/ed by Sir 

Walter Raleigh; in irio.S, Champl.iin foundeil (,)uebec. and in the following year New \'ork was settled by the Dutch. 'I'o 

these settlements, in i6jo, was added that 

of .Massachusetts, after the historic landing 

of the I'ilgrim I''alhers. from the I'reiich 

col<iny al (,)uebec came the first attempt to 

penetrate the Conlriunt, though the Dulih 

soon made their wa\ up the Hudson, and 

established a trading post at Orange (.Mbam ). 

New N'ork State at this period was the lair 

o!' the Iioi|uois, while Canada, in the m.iiii, 

was the lumling ground of the .\lgou(|uins 

and Unrolls. The .\lgon(|uins were scat- 
tered along llie banks of the St. Lawrence 

and the ( Itlaw.i, while the home of the 

Hurons or W yandols was the country King 

immediately to the north of Toronto and 

skirting the waters of the lake that bears 

their name. Iletweeii the Hurons and their 

ileadlv enemy, the IriKpiois, lay the Neutrals, 

a nation that with the Huron tribe the coii- 

f .'deracy of the Irixiuois was ere long to wipe 

out of existence. In 1615, Champlain, with 

his Jesuit fi.llowuig, made his eventful voyage IIoKrieci.rcKAi. Gaiu.kns.

and fruitless were the efforts he and his order put forth lo convert and civili/c the aborigines. The missions the Jesuit had 
come to plant among the Hurons were consecrated with tears and watered with his life-blood. Through years of unparalleled 
toil, and with great agony of soul, the hopes of the fathers were alternately raised and crushed. Despite their amazing fortitude 
and unquenchable zeal, the hopes of the mission were doomed to destruction, and the heart of Kaith was humbled in the dust.

which led to the partial opening u;> ol ic later province of 
L'pper ( '.iiiada. though it was ever and anon retardeil by the 

rivalry of the ICnglish of the seaboard. In pursuit of the fur trade, that great source of wealth to the people of both 

nations, these trails to the West became avenues of commerce which it was important for the French to hold and for the 

Knglish to obstruct or strive t ) obtain. 'I'o conserve the trade for the I-'rench crown, a number of forts were early established 

in the West, which hail 1-roiiteiiac (Kingston) as their base of supply. .\s trade expanded and rivalry grew keener, l-'orl Rouillc 

(Toronto) was erected in 17411 to guard the jiassage by the River Unniber. This stockade received its name from the I'rench 

Colonial Minister of the period, .\ntoine I.ouis RouiUe, Count de Jouy. It stood on the lake shore, about midway between 

the (iarrlson Creek, at tlie western entrance of tiie li.irbour, 'id the Humber, and m.ay practically be spoken of as the first 

germ of the City of Toronto. Through the iiistriimeiualily of the Rev. I )r. Scadding, the venerable historiographer of the 

city, a memorial column has been erected to mark the original site of the l-'ort. It stands at tlie south-west angle of the 

Kxhibition (irounds. near the 

exit to the wharf. 

On the south side of 

Lake Ontario the Trench had 

already a fort at Niagar.i. while 

the Knglish had established a 

rival post at Choueguen, now 

Oswego. The Mudson and 

the St. Lawrence were then.

(iovernor. 

Of the iniportanee of the tradnig post which guarded " the pass by Toronto," and which now historically disappears, 
there is on record the statement of Sir William Jolinstm, enil)odie(l in a despatch on Indian afl'airs to the ICarl of Shelhnrne, 
that for the monoply of a season's traile with ine Indians at I'ort Roiiille, could the post be restored, traders would be willing 
to give as much as a thousand pounds I 

Such was the value attached in 1767 to the trade of "the pass by ToroiU.o. ' a value which its location and other 
advantages were increasingly to heighten, anil a quarter of a century afterw.irds was to be turned to fresh account.

\'I'A rs were now about to bring into greater prominence, not only the historic "pass by 
Toronto," but the region through which the Indian trail led northwards to the waters of Lake 
Huron, the virgin .site of 'Toronto itself, and the beautiful harbour that lay near to the 
southern outlet of " the I'ass," the reeili'o\ered delta of the Ilumber. T'rom the Tall of 
(Quebec and the period of the <lisinantling of T'ort Rouille, a generation in the haunts of men 
was to |iass aw.iy ere we again hear of Toronto, or see sign of renewed life and activity in 
its neighboiirhoo<l. Nature was fast resuming its sway over the place, and the little clearing 
round the trading post was again being gi\en uji to solitude. .Meanwhile, the drama of life 
was proceeding elsewhere, and ihrougb the scattered colonies of the continent there ran the 
pulsations of a i|uickeneil e\istence. The previous chapter ended with thi' close of Trench 
rule in Canada: this opens with a new era of (olonial history in .\merica. T'.uropean 
settlements in the New WorM had hitherto 
mainly been lor trade ; now they partook 
of the character of, and felt the desire to be, 
a nation. 'The days of great privileged com- 
panies, with their huge land grants aiul re- 
strictive monopolies, had passed, and the 
ties, commercial ,inil political, between the 
Mother Country and the colonies were al- 
ready being sundered. Ilritains dream <if emprise over the New World had 

been fully realized, and the trading-classes of the " tight little sea-girt isle" 

threw up theii laps when she became mistn-ss of the Western Continent. 

Hut while she had bravely coni|iiere<l, she could not wisely hold. Her wars 

in the Old World had financially crippled her, and she looked to the New to 

have her coffers relilled. .Nor was the desire altogether unnatural. The 

public debt of l''.ngland had been piled up largely im account of her colonies, 

and it seemed reasonable that with their growth and prosperity return should 

in some measure be made to the Mother Country for what they had cost her. 

Hut how and in what shape was this to be returned to her? To lay heavier 

duties on her own imports would be to ta\ herself, not the colonies. To 

lay them on the colonies, Lnglish statesmen never dreameil would lead to 

revolt. To tax the carrying trade was first attempted, and when thi.s wa.s

there can be little (piestion as to the hardships thev 
endured in abaniloning their e-.i.ites in wh.it w.is com- 
parative civili/ation for a home in tin- inhospitable wilds 
of the trackless forest. I'ew of their •limber, it mav 
be. who, for the sake of a principle, had the c (iiirage to 
prefer instant de.ith rather than be untrue to their ion- 
victions : though many are known to have taken their 
I'hances of life or death with the liritish troops in the 
varying fortunes of the war. How many after the close 
of the ( onllict preferred expatriation to living in a 
country that had won inde))endence through rebellion, 
history is here to attest ; and these were the men who 
were to form the brawn and imisi le. the niinil and heart 
of the new settlements of .Vcadia and Canada. True, 
the Loyalists rei'eived large gifts of the soil in the new 
land to which they had come, as some compensation tor 
their losses ; but these grants were such as anv class of

settlers would lie likely to receive unikr any politic 

system of inmiigration. And as to the money appropriation by the C'rown on their behalf, in view of what work lay before 
them as pioneers of a new and unopened country, ;uid deprived as they were of almost everything their previous toil had 
secure<l to them, no generous mind will cavil at, or say that, considering their need, it was not richly their due. 

With the peace of 178,^, which the I'reaty of \ersailles secured, bands of Loyalists entered Canaila from various points, 
and settled ill the neighbourlKjod of Niagara, round the shores of Lake Ontario, up the liay of (Juiiite, down the St. Lawrence,

^1 l\'\\ the establishment, in 1791, of Upper Canada as a separate Trovince, Sir Ciuy C.irleton, now 
'" Lord I )orchester the ( lovernor (leneral of the colonv had Kingston in view as the Provincial 
metropolis. How Toronlo, or rather \'ork, as it came for a time to be called, won the honour 
of being the capital, we shall presently see. .Meantime let 11s take a glance at wh.it had been 
transpiring in Canada since the Con(|uest. With the addition of New I'lance to the Colonial 
I'aiipire of Uritain, the Mother Country took over an element of some perpK\ity. in a pi'ople she 
found it dilViciilt to assimilate with her own n.ilioiialitv. I'rance in the New Worlil not only 
spoke another language, but she 
had peculiar laws of her own, and 
a religioiiwhich. though it had been 
that of the country from the time 
of Champlain, was not that of her 
new rulers. ICngland's policy, of 
course, was to make it as easy ns 
possible to incorporate the l''rench-Canadians int<i the national 
system. l''or a time it was necessary to resort to military rule, 
but this indeed, if we except that of the Church, was the only 
rule the I'rench ( 'olony had hitherto known. With military rule, 
however, courts of judicature were constituted for the hearing and 
determining of all causes, criminal as well as ci\il, with liberty 
of appeal, under the usual restrictions, to the Crown. L'nfortunatilv, though the laws were administered in the justcst manner, 
and with due regard to the feelings of a people who were unfamiliar with the forms of liritish justice, the hreiich, under 
the (^)iiebec .\ct of 1774, had restored to them the "custom of I'aris," a code of civil law which existed prior to the Compiest. 
This privilege, with guarantees for the maintenance of their language and their religion, and the system of seignorial tenure on 
which they were permitted to hold their lands, the I'rench Canadians have continued to eiijov to the present day. To the 
l'',nglish who had .settled in the country the concession gave instant and just offence, as it was a violation of the ordinance 

of I 764, securing the administration of Ivnglish law, and on the 
faith of which numbers of Isnglish-speaking people had taken ii|i 
residence in Canada. In some respects, however, the concession 
was a politii' one, as, though it jilaced the l''.nglish minority at a 
dis.idvantage, it strengthened the attachment of l-'rench Canada 
to the liritish Crown, an object at the time of no little moment, 
in view of the disaffection among the ICnglish colonies on the 
seaboard, and their subseciuent revolt. In other respei'ts the 
measure was good, namely, in its removal of the d' labilities from 
Roman Catholics, as. among other benefits conferred, it gave a 
legal sanction to their religion an act of toleration whic h it took 
I'.ngland many years to extend to the same communion in the 
ToKo.Mo Hakiiouk, 179J.

through Canada fticetiously remarks. Coiernor Simcoe, in the month of Sepleniher, summoned the first I'arliament Of L'pper 
Canada. It i-oiisisted of an Upper House of seven members, appointed by the Crown for life, and a Lower llmi.se of sixteen 
inemhers, to be elected by the peopk-. I'Ik- latter were chosen, in the main, from the fanning and trading classes, the profes-

sensibly met the re(|uireineiits of the coimiry. One of its earliest mea.sures was the introduction of the Civil Law of I-jigland 
ami trial by jury. ( Itlur measures made provision lor the erection of court-houses, jails, and such other public buildings as 
were re(|uired in the various districts into which the I'rovince was at the time divided.

I'oronto came to he applied exclusively to what its cili/ens now proudly designate " the (^)iieen City ol the West. 

Ihroughuut the lirief period of Simcoe's governorship, we see tr.ices of the military rather than of the civil admuustrator. 
It was the civilian and his family he sent into the backwoods, and he gave to the old soldiers grants of land in the front 
townships wi-.hin e.isy h.ul of the capital. The c.ipital itself he seems to h.ive ('esigned for an arsenal. I he 
town plot he locates, with the Court House and Parliament liuildings, at a sale .liMance Irom the enlr.ince mto the 
harhour, and the latter he |)rotects by Mock-houses on Cibraltar Point and at the mouth of the Carnson Creek. 
In his communications witli the authorities at (Jtiebec. he speaks of sending them " some observations 
on the military strength and naval convenieiue of Toronto, now NOrk. whiih I propose immediately 
to occupy. " In writing also to the Secretary of W .u' in I'aiglaiul, we lind him rem.irking that " Nork 
is the most miportant and defensible situation m Upper Canada, or tliat I lia\e seen in North .\merii'.i. 
.\ll this w.is doubtless beiaiise fort Ni.ig.na w,is to be given up to the .\meric.ms. .nid. imtil 
w.is I'ortified. the colony would be at the mercy of his old foe. 

.Meanwhile, however, the civic growth of \'ork went on ap.tce. I'he 
work of I. lying out the town rapidly advanced. " 'The town-plot, as delined 
at this time," observes our antiipiary. Dr. Scadding,'* "was a compact little 
liarallelogram, bounded on the west by Cieorge Street, on the east by Ont.nio 
Street, on the north by I lucliess Street, and on the south by Palace Strict 
streets th.it still rel.iin their original names. The loy.il mon.nchical character 
of the (iovernor appears in nearly every one of 
these street names, as also in the names given to 
other streets, as well as in the name of the town 

itself. The main thoroughfare was King Strict ; 

the ne\t street par.dlel to it on the north was 

Duke Street ; the street north of th.it Duchess 

Street. I'lie bound. iry westward wa^ Ceorge 

Street ; the ne.\t street par.illel to that eastward 

was I'reilerick Street, and the street following 

that was Caroline Street, while the one succeeding 

that was Princes Street. The last street running 

norlh and south was Ont.irio Street. ( leorge 

Street bore the name of (leorge. Prince of Wales. 

afterwards (ieorge \\. ( 'aroline Street com 

memorated his wile, the unfortunate ( 'aniline of 

Unmswiik. Duke Street alluiled to the Duke 

of N'ork, I )uchess Street to his wife, and i'rederic k 

Street was distinguished by his Christian name. 
I'he gener.il n.nne. Princes .Street, was a compre- 
hensive compliment to the other royal princes. 

without specifying them. ( Intario Street indicated 

the tr.ick which, doubtless from time immemorial, 

led down to the cmoe I, Hiding nearest to the 

' carrying pl.ice ' on the Island, where the sm.ill 

i-raft passing up and down the lake and trading al \'ork. were wont to be lihcd .icross tlu n.irrow rui k of l.ind there. P.ilace 

Street was so styled because it w.is expected lobe \.\\v viii \,uiii lo the ' P.il.ice of ( io\crnmeiit.' to speak in I'rcnch sl\ le ;

to look back on Simcoe's effusive loyalty, as seen in the nonieni lature of Toronto's carlv streets. Within the leiitury, we 

have evidently swung to the other extreme of denioc nicv ! 

The first winter was s|)eiit by the ( Iovernor under canvas, and the roof of the ( 'ouncil ( 'h.imbcr «,is th.it of the .iirx lent.

stream whirh liDundcd llu' lily on the last. As the I'aHiamcnt liiiildinns were not yet ire<ted, the C.overnor perioihcally 

returned to Niagara to siniinioii and prorogue the Legislature and ih'reet the affairs of State. He also iindiitook many 

e\|uilitions through the Province, to make hiinself aecniaiiiled with the appearance of the coimtry and have an eye to the wants 

and well-lieiiig of settlers. The miitine 
of life was occasionally varied hy the 
festivities of a hall at .N'iagara, ami 
liy the (loveriior's lavish hospitalities 
at Navy Hall or under his fannnis 
tent. These hospitalities wcmld he 
shared at one time hy the Indian 
lirant. at another hy an Old World 
traveller and diplomat. 'The siil)je( Is 
of conversation woiilil then turn on 
Kepiihlicanism and the revolted Col- 
onies, against which the newly-formed 
Province was to he a liiilu.irk and 
wall of defence. Lnliappily for (he 
Province and its capital, it would 
seem these talks of the (lovernor 
were far from pacific, and lest he 
might emhroil the King's (iovernment

I 7()6, .Simcoe left Navy Hall for .San 
I )oniingo, and the Province that owed 
'IcunMo ,si KM 1. Iijiii so miiih saw him no more. 

Willi what devotion and sturdv fidelity he bad served the King in his new Proviine of L'ppcr ( 'anaila. there is hardly need 

here to tell. .\s we have said of him elsewhere, he gave the Colony his every thought, and worked resolutely to put it on its 

feet. Could he have had his own wav, it is not too imich to say that it would not long have remained a mere stripling hy the side 

of the nation to the south of il. lUit he was loo iiidepenileru to lie an official truckler, and h.ul heen lirouglit up in a school

lielore the fust decade of the present 

century had passed, the lirawn and miis( le 

of the inhahitants had done great things for 

the town of \'ork. I''.ven the face of the 

Province hail undergone much change since 

the withdraw. il of its first administrator. ( )ii 

.Simcoe's departure the affairs of the couiUrv 

had passed temporarily into the ihaige of 

President Kussell, until the Crown, in 171)1;. 

sent out a new Lieutenant ( lovernor, in the 

person of (lener.il Peter Hunter. Hunter

he was succeeded ill ihe ( ioveniorship hy Sir

into the hands of Sir Isa.ic llroik. the acting 

(lovernor. While these changes in the ad 

ministration were taking place. York had 

grown and spread itself: churches, houses 

and stores had heen hiiilt ; streets had heen opened out which, though thev have long since hecome unlashioiiahle, were in 

their day the home of wealth anil the dress-parade of fashion ; the Parliament liullilings had heen conipleteil, anil according to 

British use and wont, had witnessed the ceremonial of many openings and closings of the HiHise. Kveii the recesses of the neigh-

en traiiieiiii. The climate of N'ork is temperate and well sheltered from the northerly winds hy the high lands iji the rear. I'he 
Yonge Street leads from hence to Lake Simcoe, and the Diindas Street crosses the rear of the town." 

Such is the picture preserved to us, hy a contemporary hand of tlie appearance of 'I'oronto at the close of the last century. 
Few, we may lie sure, of the rude forefathers of the then liamlel, ever dreamed of the potentialities that lay hid in the 
embryo city. Nor, to look at Captain ('.other .Mann's ])a|)er-plan of Toronto*, ideal as it is, would even the seer of the period 
be likely to predict what the city would become before a hundred years had elapsed. As yet the chroniclings of the Official 
(iazette do not in(li<ate a very fast growing 
town. 'I'he press of the period is chielly 
burdened with the records of the going and 

coining of the Ciovernor or acting (iovernor, ^^^^|i^^|^^B'^b^^ ^^^^^H^H^^^HP^ ^. 

and the movements of the (lovernmeiU 
schooners on the lake, as they carried to 
and fro, on the business of the Crown, the 
law-officers of the I'rovince, and such naval 
aiKJ military magnates as were in this part of 
the world on His Majesty's service. Among 
the latter, in iSo,5, was the Duke of Kent, 
uncle of Her Present .Majesty, who, on paying 
the I'rovince a second visit, was entertained 
at \'ork, we le.irn, by (ieneral the Hon. 
.l''.neas Shaw, one of the I'roviiicial (iovenior's 
( 'oiincillors. .\ still Liter arri\al was the 
Hon. l-'raiicis (lore, who lor some years was 
to figure in I'roviiicial history as l.ieutenaiU- 
Ciovernor. During his administration, both 
N'ork and the I'rovince continued to advance 
ill settlemeiil. Parliament voted sums for 
the construction of roads and bridges, and 
made consiilerable effort to open up new- 
sections of the couiury. Postal ficilities 
were also increased, and communication with 
Lower Canailaand the outer world bec.ime 
more practicable. .\t this .time, we learn, 
the mail between Montre.il and N'ork was 
brought at lengthened intervals, on the backs 
of pedestrians, while the number of post 
olVices in the two Pnninces was then under 
twenty. 

With all the disadvantages, societv at 
the c.ipital. however, grew apace. In iSo,}, 
a weekly public market was established in 
the town, and in the following year was 
erected "the church at N'ork " the first 
" meeting house for I'lpiscopalians," as it was 
for a lime termed, which siibseciuently blos- 
somed out into the Calhedr.il of .St. James. •'■^"^''^ .Strkkt. Lookixi; Noktii (East .Sii.k). 
Its first ( leigyinan was the Rev. (1. Okill Stu.irt, who alterwards became an archdeacon in the Church, and for a time was 
master of the Home District School at Vork. In the reconls of both church .ind school, Canadian .sociologists will meet with 
the names of many estimable citizens who, v iih their families and their descendants, have been intimately associated with the 
town, as well as with the settlement and the political and social advancement of I'.nglish speaking Canada. 

A few incidents in the professional and s.icial life of Toronto at this period are not without interest. One of these is the 
creatiim of the first members of the legal profession by royal proclamition, in the year iSo.f. 'The honour fell upon the 
following gentlemen, who were facetiously termeil the " heaven descended b.irristers ;" Dr. W. W. li.ildwin, father of the Hon.

wholly unknown at this period. While we hear of slaves being ni.iiuiiiiiltcd, we also hear of their being sold or ofl'ered for sale. 
In the Giizttli- of the time, .Mr. I'eler Kussell, then .idministrator of tlie affairs of the Province, advertises for sale "a black woman, 
named I'eggy, agetl forty years, and a black boy, lier son. named Jupiter, aged about fifteen years, both of them the property of

with interest from the day of sale, and to be secured bv bond." His l-Acelleiicy is /ood enough to say, however, that "one-

■'.It)kl) the memorable figure of Hrock appears actively on the scene, the clouds of war had begun 
to stretch their murky curtain over llritish possessions in Canada, and the iiuitterings of a por- 
tentous storm were already distracting the little town of \drk. In Ciovernor ('■ore's address at 
the opening of I'arliameiU, in i8oij, occurs this presage of the coming conlhci : " Hitherto," says 
His lAcellency, "we li.ive enjoyed tramiuillity, plenty and peace. How long it may please the 
Supreme kuler of Nations thus to favour us, is wisely concealed from our view. Hut under such 
( ir( unistances it becomes us to prepare ourselves to meet every event, and to evince by our zeal 
and loyally that we know the value of our Constitution, and are worthy of the name of llritish 
subjects." Nor were the loval citi/.ens of I'.ngl.ind's Crown in Ndrk slow to respond to the appeal 
of patriotism, or indifferent to what was expected of them when the hour of trial came. In the 

thirty months' i cmllii t that was about to ensue, no comiminitv could well have given a better account of themselves. It is 

with just pride lli.it the ( 'aiiadian histori.in pens the narr.itive of the iinei|ual struggle of those terrible vear,., iHi j 14 ; for when 

Congress, on the Kjth of June, 1.S12, declared war against the Motherland, .iml look instant steps to inv.ide Canada, Canada, 

with equal promptitude, proceeded to call out her militia, and determinedly braced herself to resist invasion. 

The total popul.ition of the llritish Colony at this time did not exceed ,?oo,ooo, of which only about a fourth was 

settled in the I'piier Province. The regular troops of all arms in 

the country, as the present writer has elsewhere observed, did nol 

([uite number 4.500 men. Less than a third of this number was 

then in Cpper Canada. With this sm. ill bixb of troops ( 'aiiaila 

had to defend a frontier of over 1.500 mile-,, threatened ,it many 

points by a large and fairly disciplined army, with a popul.ition 

to draw from of nearly eight millions. \'el, such was the spirit ol 

her sons that, hopeless as seemed the undertaking, she did not 

hesitate to take the field at the first signal of danger. Within a 

month after the declaration of war, the .\merican Cieiieral Hull, 

with .111 army of :!,5oo men. ( rossed the 1 titroit kiver and 

entered ( 'aiiada. Later on, at other points, the countrv was 

invaded, namely, on the Niagara frontier, and in Lower Canada, 

by way of Lake Champlain. On learning of the invasion of the 

western peninsula, (ieneral Hrock called an emergency meeting Kisi; Si kkkt Eam, 1SJ4.

the slionnhold on the Detroit Ki\er. I'roinptl) carrying out his project, Urock put liis .small force in lighting array and irossed 
the river into .Michigan, liefon- ass.uilling the fort, he summoned the garrison to surrender. The summons, to lirock's surprise, 
was coin|)lieil with, and J.500 .\merican soldiers g" _ up their arms. I'.lated at his unlooked for success, and enabled liy the 
capitul.ition of the fort to more efliciently arm I'.- Canadian militia, he resolved at once to relurn to \ork, thereafter to cross 
Lake Ontario anil sweep from the N'.igara frontier other detachments of the enemy, liy the iytli of .\ugust llrock and his 
troops were hack al the lapital. where they were received with the warmest acclaims of the populace. Unfortunately, when about 
to set out again, Hiock's design to prevent the enemy from massing on the Niagara Riser was for the time frustrated by an ill- 
timed armistice. This had been agreed to by .Sir Ceorge I'revost, who at the period held supreme conmiand in Lower Canada. 
The armistice delaved action till the following October, and gave the .\mericans time to concentrate a force of about 
f),ooo men. uniUr \'an Rensselaer, in the _ '-j"'!*

hearing at l-'ort ( ieorge the cannonading, gal- 
lopeil with his aides-de-camp to the scene of 
action, and at once Ibund himself in the 
thick of a desperate onset. The story is a 
brief one. Two companies of the 4i)th Regi- 
ment, «ilh about a hundred of the C.inadian 
militia, had lor some time been holding the 
eiiemv in check. hIuii the engagement slid 
deiil) became geiier.il. .\ portion ol the 
invading force, g.iiniiig the heights unol - 
served, from this vantage ground began to 
pour a destructive fire upon the defenders, 
liroek, with characteristic gallantry, inst.mth 
placed liimsell .11 the heail of the troops, wilh 
whom were two companies of the militia of 
\ (irk. and hastened to dislodge the enemy 
Irom the heights. Conspicuously leading the 
storming p.irty, and with the cry, " I'ush on, 
the Nork \dliinteers!" on his lips, Itrock w.is 
struck bv a musket-ball and fell mortally 
wdiinded. .Maddened at the death of their 
heroic icider, the troops twice essayed to 
c lear llu' iinaders from the llame clad heights. 
Twice, however, were they driven back, and 
the gallant column of barely ,500 men was 
compelled to retire upon the village and 
w.iil reinl'orcemeiits. I'reseiilly these came 1111, and under Cieneral Sheaffe they now outllanked the .\niericans and drove them 
over llu precipice, or, on the brink <if the river, forced them to surrender. Victory once more rested upon llrilish arms, though 
its lustre was grievously dimmed by heavy losses sustained by the victors, and by the death of Sir Isaac liroek, their loved 
commaniler. 'Three days .ifterw.inls they laid Ills body temporarily to rest in a b.istion of fort (ieorge, and llu' ( 'anadian people 
mourned for the dead hero.

with is to record briel''. its effects upon the Town of \drk, and to show how bravely its citizens bore thenisebes in the conllict. 
'The Ualtle of (,)ui' nston Heights brought mourning into many a 'Toronto home. With (leneral liroek lln're fell his acting 
aidede camp, Colonel McDonnell, the .Vttorney-Cieneral of the I'rovince. Nimibers of the soldiery of Vork and the Home 
District also fell on the battle ground. Itut the town itself was now to suffer from a closer contact with the enemy. In the 
spring of the following year, the .\niericans renewed their efforts to capture Can.ula. Their designs included extensive naval 
operations on the lakes, with, if possible, the burning or raiding of the i'rovincial capital. On the jjth of .\pril. Commodore 
Ch.iuncev set out from Sackett's Harbour with a lleet of fourteen armed vessels, and 1,600 troops under the comm.ind of 
Cieneral De.irborn. On the evening of the following day, the good peo[ile of N'ork saw this winged menace pass westward,

easy prey. As they pushed on in (oliiinn to take possession, the fire of tlie fort haviiij; ceased suddenly there was a terrific 
ex)ilosion and l!rij;.iilier I'ike, with 200 of his command, hitc unceremoniously shot into the a'r. j'hc powder mana/.ine, it 
stems, had lieen tirid by an artillery ser(;eant of the retreating regidars, to prevent it lallnin into die hands of the enemy, .and 
the fuse was lit, from all accounts imdesii^nedly, at a horribly inopportune moment. Despite this (abmilous 1 heck .md the 
consternation that ensued, the .Amirie.ms .idvanced upon the town and received the submissicjn of (!ol<jnel Chewetl and the 
handful of militia who h.id not lalleii m defence of it. 

The exploding of the iiLigadnc and the loss of life it occasioned, put the invaders in no humour to treat generously, 
either with the town or with the people. S'ork w.is not only taken possession of by the Americans, but the plac e was sac ked and 
many of the public- buildings were given to the llanies. The Houses of I'.irlianicnt, with the library ,ind public records, were 
burned, and everything of value that cciiild be removed w.is put on board the Meet. The Kev. John (alterw.irds Mishop) 
Since li.iii. who h.id nc enlly come to \drk. w.i-, instruiiunl.il in re >tr lining the wantonness ol the enemy, in the lust of destruc-

c.ipilul.ilicm, and toeffect the release on p.irole 
ol the ( 'an.idian militia and other volui leer 
dcfenclcrs of the tctwn. 

Unhappily the humili.ition of \c)rk 
w.is not yet complete. I'hree months after 
w.irds, ( hauncey's Heel made another descent 
upon the capital to revenge the .lid it had 
given (lener.d Vincent in his defence of 
liiirliiigioM Heights. The lown had to siib- 
inil to .1 liirther scon liing and looting, though 
the .\niericaiis had soon to pay lor their 
w.intoiiiiess by severe Iosm's elsc-wherc- and 
by grim reprisals in the later history ol the 
war. To balance the account C.in.id.i has 
10 show to her credit the eng.igeiiieiits at 
lieaver Dam and Sloiiy Creek, the exploit at 
Ogdensbiirg, and the descent upon ill.n k 
Ucick. In these affairs, as well as in the 
Mc tories of the next year at Chryslers I'.iriii 
• ind Chate.iiiguay, the loss to her arms of the 
young Colony was hilly counterbalanced. 
On the lakes, fortune was capricious, now 
playing into the haiuls of Chauncey ancl I'erry, anon into those of Hire lay and ^'eo. I'lie ye.ir iSi^, as we have e hronicled 
elsewhere, closed amid woe and desolation. The .American (leiieral .McCliire, in command of the c-,ipiured stronghold of 
Kort (leorge, being hard pressed by Vincents troop>, dec ided to winter in Kort .Niagara, on the other siele ol the river. I'liinking 
his safety even then endangered by the proximity cif Newark, he c-ommilted the inhuman ae t of turning out cif their homes, in 
the depth of winter, about 150 familii-s, including 400 women and children, ancl fired the town .it thirty minutes' notice. I'or 
this barbarous ae t the .\inericaiis were- held to a terrible: account, in the repris.ils wliie h instantly lollowecl. the surprise and 
capture of fort Niagara, and the consigning to the flames of all .American villages from Lake Ontario to Lake Ijie. 

The re is little, as wc have saiil elsewhere, to reccird in the events of 1S14, save the l.iilure of the liritish attac k on the 
strong position of the .Americans at Chippewa, ancl the crowning victory of the war, the liattle cil l.undy's Lane, with which the 
War of 1812 may he said to have practie^ally ended. The I'reaty of (ihent, which was signed cm the i4tli cjf December, 1S14, 
terminated the protMcted struggle, and left Canada in possession cif her own. The ccjuntry h.ul been dev.istated, innumerable 
homes made desolate, and thciisands of lives sac rificed, in an inglorious attempt by the .Ameriian people to subjugate Canada, 
ancl siippl.int the L'nion J.ie k by the .St.irs and Stripes. I he eirdeal was a trying cmi- for the country; but her sons were ccpial to 
the (jcc:asion, and she accjuitted herself with hcjnour, and carried lo the credit of her national life that whit li has since 
strengthened and ennobled it.

ments, from the coiilidence and goiid will it inspired, and the encouragement it gave to the young men of the c(j|intry to leave their 
homes and take their share in its defence." There was other patriotic work which, while the w.ir 
went on, enlisted the energies, as well as the sympathies, of the resour(eful young e((lesiasti( . In 
the i.hr(mi( les of the lime, Strachan is seen to have taken an active, though rather aggressive, 
part in negoti.iting the terms of capitulation with the .\nieri(an inv.ulers of N'ork. To him, in 
the overtures with the enemy, the town owed wh.itever clemency was shown to it, though his curt 
spee( h and dour manner, luiilrali/ed only by the courteous address and genial ways of Att(jrne\ 
(ieneral (afterwards (hief jusliie) Kobinson, came near cancelling all that had been gained from 
York's rude captors. 

liefore jiassing on with the 
history, let us lake a (loser gl.ince 
at the town's sturdy ( hampion and 
shrewd, though liriis(|ue. mediator. 
Strachan was a young S( ()t( h school- 
master (born .It .\berdeen in 177S) 
who had come to Canada In his 
twenty-first year, with some e\pe( ta 
tion of receiving the priiu ipalship ot 
a college which w.is designed to be 
founded by the (iovcriiment and en 
(lowed with a large grant of land 
from the public domain. On the 
last day of the century the young 
dominie arrived at Kingston, where 
he learned that, with Simcoe's de- ^'' '-*»'"'^''''- Makkkt, kkom tiik So. i 11 Kast.

abandoned. He, however, lud a friend in .Mr. kii hard ( 'artwright, an influential resident, who prev.iiled upon him to open 
a sdiool In the town and light the lamp of learning in the youllilul colony. In this work Strachan /eahmsly engaged, until 
having taken orders, he was appointed by Itishcjp Mountain to a charge at Cornwall. At Cornwall he combined ediK ^^(mal 
with clerical work, and there, in what l)e(^ime a famous prcccptory, he taught many who were ere long to go forth to till the 
highest |M)sitions in the I'rovince. In 181 1, owing to the death of the Rev. Dr. Okill Stuart, the first incumbent of St. James'

While the town and the country were thus making satisfactory material progriss. the situation of .iH'.iirs poliiicallv was 
deplorable. In liotli llie I'pper and the Lower Province, pulilic feelm.u was ,uoused over the irresponsilile ch,nacti'r of the 
Kxecutive Council, and found vent in many stormy scenes in I'arliaiiienI, as will as in angrv outhiirsls iii the R.idical press. In 
the L'pper I'roMiicc especially there was a |ilenlihil crop of grievances, .\iiiong these 
we (|uote from our words elsewhere were the scandalous svsteiii on which the pulilic 
lands were granted, and the partiality shown in the issue of land |i.itenis and other favours 
in the gift of the Crown. Immigrants from the L'nited States, heing tainted as il was 
stijiposod with kepulilicanisin. were the special olijects of official dislike anil the \ii tiiiis 
of legislative injustice and wrong. Oppressive laws were passed ag.iinst tlieiii. and an 
.Mien Act was rigorouslv enforced, whiih for a time deprived them of their poliliial rights. 
excluded them from the privilege of taking up land, and suhjected them to many iiidig 
nities, including arliitrary expulsion from the I'rovince. 'The chief authors of these aliuses 
were the inemliers of the llxecutive and Legislative Councils, who by their close alli,nices 
for mutual advantage, came to be known by the rather sinister designation of the I'amily 
Compact. L'or the most part thev were of I'. I-",. Loyalist <lescent, men of education.

other Crown ]iatronage, which secured for them a strongly attached, but not alwavsa 
scrii|iulously honest, following. In the reforming spirit that now set in, il iiiiisl in justice 
be said, that whatever good was in the administration of the time was but indiffereiilb 
acknowledged. We mav admit that, at the |ieriod, power was firmly centrali/ed in tin- 
haiKls of a dominant and exclusive i l,iss that all the public ottices were in llu-ir gih, and 
that the entire public domain, iiic hiding the ('rown and Clergy Land Keser\es. was also 
in their hanils. It is true also that, through the patronage at their disposal, the I'amily ( 'oiiipai t were enabled lo fill the Lower 
House with their supporters and ailhereiils, and, in largi' measure, to shape the I'rovincial legislation so as to niaintain their hold 
of oltice and perpetuate ,i monopoly of power. That they used their positions autocratically, and laid a heavy hand upon the

earlv cr.idliii}; lime, the place had seen many changes, and its cili/eiis had striven hard to pi. ml I'oronlo tirmly on its feet. 

.Slow as yet, however, were the successive stages of civic developnunl, and the visitor within its piles oluii mocked the preten

the lirinhter day laine, however, Toronto h.id to enter upon a conMicl which tried the spirits of its sons, .mil proved, as with 

fire, their sturdy claim to the rights and privileges of freemen. 

At the time, as we have seen, political power was centrali/ed in the hands of a dominant ami e\chisive class, who rilled 

the I'rovince autocratiially, and shaped the Provincial legislation so .is to maintain their hold of ot'tice and reward, villi 

extensivi- land grants and other favours, their large and not overscrupulous hody of rit.iiiiers. .\gaillst this ruling olig.m hy 

and the plicemen of the time, Koliert (ioiirlay, earliest of ( 'anadian Radic.ils, was the lirsl to proU'st ; and when he had lieeii

of discontent by his series of dislurbiiig

laws and the arbitrary legislation, embodied 

in .Mien and .Sedition Acts, passed by the 

autocr.aii Provincial I'^xecutive. Maikeii/ie 

took up and larried forward the {'ai alibiir

it.self into the m.icliinery of irresponsiliK'

reform, and during a series of stormy years 

gave voice to the popular disiontent and let 

the light of ilay in upon a large and iinlial-

slinhl ones that siparated tlie two hands of 
combatants. Ivaeh side, iiodoiiht, considered 
itself finhlinn lelinionsly for a principle. In 
the politics of the yoiiiif; colony, it was the 
first sharp contest lictwecn privilege and non 
privilege. 'The one side sought to conserve 
what it deemed its sailed trust and was 
jealous of its own rights and privileges ; the 
other had lilllc respect for ( 'row n nominations

pay no deference to the voice of the parlia

In tile meantime the field of parl\

I'olitical feeling, which had long heeii at fever 
heat, took sides in the civic contest ; and 
though Keforni, perhaps fearing the evils of 
increased ccntrali/ation, had at first scouted 
the innovation, it filially accepted it, and in 
the eleitions carried with it a majoritv of the

.\s the event is of some importance in the aiuials of the city, it may he worth while to note the successive incidents in

coimiilmen lor each ward. The eiti/ens were to elect the ward representatives, while the latter were to elect from themselves 
a mayor. The combined body was to have the management of the city's alTairs, and power was given to il to levy such taxes

at Irasl, for tlu' cause of Kcfonn. Mackcn/ic licid ol'licc only for the year, Iml williin llie period iinich was done in the way of 

piilihi- iinproMinents. Tlie first thinn In whii h the 
Coiimil addressed itself was the niendint; ami e\ 
tending of the city's siiUwalks and mails. To meet 
this necessary e\penilitiire, an ai>plication was made 
to the Hank of L'pper Canada for the loan of a 
thonsand pounds, l)Ut as the city was alre.idy a 
delitor to the evtent of nine limes this sum. the 
loan was timidly refiisid. .\ conleinporary docii 
nieiit shows, howiver, th.it an application lo the 
I'ariners' liank was more siiceissfiil, llumuli the 
monev was had only mi the personal security of the 
.\lavor and City Council. The city then mended 
its ways. In these days of liberal and sulistantial 
street pavements, it is not a little curious to con 
irast with them the meanre and parsimonious 
sidewalks of the \car of Toronto'^ incorporation. 
.\ll thai was then allowed of .1 pronuMading area, 
were two Iweheinch pl.mks. I.iid longitudinally on 
the chief streets. 

The statistiis of the period, in other direc- 
lions, show similar sharp contrasts lietweell then 
and now. Into these we h.ive not space here to 
enter, though it may lie noted thai the po|iulation, 
in i.'^.vi. w.i-. under 10. coo. and that the \.due of the 
I .>M K..I .SI i.Ki 1 i;.Mi 1^1 I HI HI M. ratable propertv within the city limits did not evceed 

three i|u.irters of a million of dollars. The " leaps and bounds " b\ wliicli the city has attained its present proportions, the 
reader may reali/e when it is recalled th.U the then area of I'orimto was compressed between the I ion and I'eter Street, and 
between Lot (or (,)ueen) Street and the ll.iv. Outside of these bounds was an unkempt, if not impenetrable, wilderness. Nor 
must we forget one at least, and the iimst dread, of the local causes of the time that retarded the city's advancement. In the 
year of incorporation, Toronio suffered from a visitation of .Asiatic cholera. ICvery twentieth inhabitant, it is recorded, 
bei ante a vii tim lo the fell scourge. 

In spite of this calamitous ilis|)ensation and the increasing political turbulence, the youthful city, impelled by an internal 
force of its own. continued lo make projiress. Stores, blocks, churches, and public buildings were built ; new streets and 
avenues were opened up; and manv fair funilv residences rose solitarv among the thick set pines, upon wh.it are now old city 
sites. Net, in appearance, much of the town was still rude and uncouth. This we learn from a picture lim.ied for us, in iX_^f), 
by .Mrs. lanieson. wife of the then I'rovincial N'iceChancelliir, though its lugubrious tone was doubtless (he product of the 
artist's depressed spirits. Says .Mrs. Jameson (viJf "Winter .Studies and Summer Rambles '")," What Toronto may be in 
summer. I cannot tell; they say it is a prettv place. .\l present its appearance to nie, a slrangir, is most stningely mean and 
mekmcholy. .\ little ill biiill town, on low kind, at the bottom of a fro/^en bay, with one very ugly church, without tower or 
steeple; some (lovermnent oftices, built of staring p 1 brick, in the most tasteless, vulgar style im;iginable ; three feet of snow 
all around ; and the grey, sullen, wintry lake, and the dark gloom of the |)ine forest bounding the prospect ; such seems Toronto 
to me now." I'liis ill-used, unhappy lady, we are glad to remember, has left us a later and brighter picture of Toronto.

making a change in the Lieut

known as the "Clergy Reserves. " 

This act raised the hostility ol 

the denomiiiatidiis t<iwards the

In the popular Chainher the natural results followeil the Reform element denomneil the Ciovernor, anil for the Ihsl time the 
House refuseil to vote the siip|)lies. Sir l-'ran<is retorted by dissolving; rarliament and iin<dnsliliilioMally appealing himself U)

the (loveriior. elated at his success, liecame a tlioroujjh partisan, and still further widened the lireaih between the (Jovemnicnt 
and the people. 

In lower Canada, a somewhat similar slate of thinj^s prevailed, and precipitateil the crisis that now fell upon the whole 
couiUr\. In liolh Provinces, Imperial authority was renounced, disaffection clasped hands, and balked Keform slid into 
rebellion. In the closini; (la\s of July, iS,;;, .Mackenzie organi/ed a " Conmiittee of X'igilance," to guard the irUerests Reform 
had in view ; bm the violeiu appeals it issued soon inllanied the heart of sedition, and the next move was a hostile demonstra- 
tion and the .ittcinpt to erect a revolutionary go\ernmeul. That armed resistance to authority w.is now the game, is sufticiently

seen from the inflammatory handbills which the leading spirit of ihe uioMUunt issued, c.illing upon his fellow " p.iiriots " to 
rise and strike for freedom. Here are a few r.ilher spicy extracts : 

"Can.idians: < iod I'.as put it into the bold and honest hearts of our brelhrcii in I.owit C.ni.ula to revolt not ag.iiiisl 
lawful but against unlawful .uitliority. The law says we sh.ill not be taxed without our consent by the xciice of the men ol our 
choice ; but a wiiked and lyraiuiical ( ioveriuueiit has trampled upon that law, robbed the exchec|uer, divided the iilundir, and 
deilared that, regardless of justice, they will contiiuie to roll in their splendid c.irriages and riot in their palaces at our expense ; 
that we are poor, s|iiritless. ignorant peasaiUs, who were born to toil for our betters, * * Ndu give a bounty lor wcilves' 
scalps. \\ h\ ? Ihi ,Hise wolves harass you. The bouiuy you must pay for freedom (blessed word ! ) is to give the strength of 
your arms to put down tyranny at Toronto. One short hour will deliver our country from the oppressor, and freedom in 
religion, pea<'e and tranciuillity, eijual laws and an improved country, will be the prize. "■ * We have given Ile.id (the 
(iovernor) and his employers a trial of forty live years, live vears longer than the Israelites were detained in the wilderness. The 
promised land is now before us up then and lake it but set not the torch to one house in ToroiUo, unless we are fired at 
from the houses, in which case selfpreservaliou will teaili us to put down those who would murder lis when up in the defence 
of laws. ♦ ♦ ♦ 

" Mark my words, Canadians '. The struggle has begun it will end in freedom : but timidity, cowardice or lainperiTig 
on our part, will only delay its close. We cannot he reconciled to Itritain. We have humbled ourselves to the I'haraoh ot 
England, to the .Ministers and great people, and they will neither rule us nor let us go. We are determined never to rest until 
independence is ours the prize is a splendid one. .\ iiiuiitry larger llian I'r.iiice or I'.ngland, natural resources eipial to our

acres lor land revcmio, frLTiliim from lirilish iriliule, tree trade with all the world hut sto|) ! I never could ■numerate all the 
hlessinns attendant upon independence I 

" L'p, then, hrave Canadians : (let re.i<ly your rilies and make short work of it; a connection with ICngland would 
involve us in all her wars, midertaken for her own advantage, never for ours. With Ciovernors from I'.ngland we will have 
hrihery at elections, <'(irruptioii, villainv and perpetual discoril in every township ; hut independence would give us the means 
of enjoying many hiessings. Our enemies in Toronto are in terror and dismay; the\' know their wickedness and dread om 
vengeance. * * \V<je to those who op|)ose us, for 'Cioil is our trust.'" 

The publication of this incendiary tractate, we need hardly say, laid U:, writer open to the grim courtesies of the law ; 
and the .\tloriiey-(ieneral of the Province naturally informed the (lovernor that .\lacken/ie should be proceeded against for 
treason. The (iovernor acciuiescing, a warrant was issued for the rebel's arrest. lUit .Mackenzie had lied ere he could lie 
apprehended, and was now busy gathering the clans of revolt for the descent upon the ca|)ital. liesides .\I.acken/ie. among the 
leading Upper Canada plotters of rebellion, were Messrs. \'an Egniond, I'erry, l.ount, .Matthews, Duncombe, .Morrison, .Mont- 
gomery, I'riee, Ciorham, I >oel, (iibson, (;rah;nii. .\nder.son, Ketchuni, Idetcher, l.loyd. with other Toronto citizens and yeomen 
of the county. ( )lher inlluential sympathi/ers there were, such as Robert Halilwin and .Marshall .Spring liidwell, who stopjied 
short, however, at actual and overt rebellion, .\nother name, that of Dr. John Rolph, is to be added to the black list, though 
he belonged to the number of astute rebels, in more or less open disguise. The chief leaders of the revolt in Lower Canada, 

it is iKirilly necess;iry now to say, 

were I'aiiineau, Dr. Wolfred Nelson, 
and IClienne ("artier. 

With the incidents of "the 
rising, " we have space only to deal 
brielh. 'The seditious movement 
seems to have drawn iiuo its vorte\ 
the ycom;'nry chielly of N'onge 
Sireel. e\tendiiig from the northern 
boundary of the city northw;ird to 
\'eHui;irkel and Holland Landing. 
The rallying ))lace of the insurgents 
we naturally fmd, therefore, was 
.Montgiimery's T;ivern. on \ onge 
Street, situate about a mile beyond 
Deer Park, the northern suburb of 
'Toronto. Here, in the opening 
days of December, g;Uhered .M;u-- 
kiii/ie's rank and file, including the 
Toronto contingent, which used to 
meet clandeslinel) ,U I )oeTs brewery, 
on l>ay Street, with a sprinkling of 
moderate Reformers from other parts 
of the Province, now goaded into 
active rebellion. .Arms and accou 
tremeiits h;ul ;dready been quietly 
passeil .diout, anil there was mui-h le.ideii stir in the melting-pot to provide the reciuisite bullets. So l;ir, Torydom in the city 
li.ul not taken mn( h ;il.nin. W'h.U regular troops were in garrison had been ilespatched to Lower C;uiada bv the (iovernor, to 
the ;issistance of men.iied l.iw and order in that Province, liy the prevailing indifference and limpness of ol'tiii.d .nithorin. 
Toronto invited Us doom. Hut its doom, however sternly rebcldom hail decreed it, w.is not yet. 

The date li\iil for the descent upon Toronto was origin.dly the 7th of I )eiember. On Sunday, the ,5rd, when M,icken/ie 
re.iclied the :ippointed reiule/voHs, he learned with surprise th;it Dr. Rolph h.ul <hanged the day to the 4th insl;uu. Why 
this h:Ml been done was ;it the time not clear, though it was surmised that it was in consequence of preparations being 
made by the :iutliorities to put Toronto ill ;l state of defence, and that delay would be bad for the rebels and good for the 
loyalists. The insurgent chief determined, hevever, to I'uul out the re.tl position of affairs, and with that purpose he set out 
after dark for the city, accompanied by three of his troopers as a bodyguard. On the way they met two men on horseb;uk, one 
of whom was .Mr. John Powell, an .\lderman of Toronto, who were proceeding as spies in the direction of the rebel cam]). 
Macken/ie's |).irly, being two to one, took the citizens prisoners and sent them on to MoiUgonieiy's, in the custoily of two of 
the insurgents. Hut care, it seems, had not been taki'n to tlivest one of them at le;ist of his concealed we;ipons. T;Lking 
advantage of this oversight, .Alderman Powell, on the way, drew a revolver and killed one of the gu.ird, then wheeled about and 
galloped for the city. Overtaking Mackenzie and his companion, shots were exchanged on the highway, but without tlTect on 
either side ; and Powell continued his flight to the town, where he aroused {iovernor Head from his bed and with him routed

and his drlcnatod powers ho fxcrciscd (in tlio side hotli of iiu-ri y and (if justico. Unlortuiiatrlv, in tin- ruKllinont of his 
duties, he was not able to satisfy his Imperial masters, aiul, iiieeiiscil at tlie opposition some ol his aets met with in I'.n.uland, lie 
ahniptly resigned his office and withdrew from his mission. 

The Durham Administration, however, brought important results. It was tlie turning-poiiU in tlie poHtieal liistory of 
the ( '.ui.idas ; for while in the country his Lordship had prepared an elaborate report on the situation of affairs, and this states- 
manlike document he submitted to the Home Cioveriuneiu, and, in the main, his views were acted upon. In a clear, bold, and 
dispassionate manner. Lord 1 )urh.un set forth the dil'ficulties besetting governnieiu in the Canadas, and, with rare prescience, 
suggested a confederation of .dl the liritish North .\merican I'rovinces. .Admitting that this project was too great for immediate 
fulfilment, he coiUented lumself with pressing upon the Imperial ("povermuent anil I'arliament a mollification of his siheme, in 
the Legislative L'nion of L'pper and Lower Canada. This idea presented itself as a more feasible one ; and to give it effect, 
the Hritish ('io\erninent sent out to the colony the Hon. .Mr. I'oulett 'I'homson (afterwards Lord .Sydenham), who undertook, 
at a special council convened in Lower C'anada, to draft a bill uniting the two I'rovinces. and to obtain the acce|>tance of the 
measure by the two political parties in both sections of the country. The distinctive provisions of the .\ct (of 1840) were that 
the two I'rovinces should be united under one (lovernment : that there should be one Legislative Council anil one .Vssembly, 
with equal representation in both branches ; and that the I-Aecutive Council should hold oltice oiilv so long as it, as a body, 
commanilcd the siip|)i.>rt of a majority in the popular Chamber, 'riuis was gained what Reform had long and wearily contended 

for government by the people, the 
essential principle of responsible 
political rule. The Ciiioii Mill was 
(lasseil in the Imperial I'arliament 
on the 2.?ril of July, 1840, and it 
came into force in Canada in I'eb- 
ruary of the following year. 

In the new political older of 
things, Toronto for a time lost the 
nominal honours of the capital. 
■['lie first L'nion I'arliament met at 
Kingston, that city being deemed 
more central for conducting tlic ad 
minisirative affairs of the Liiilecl 
l'ro\iiiies. I'lUt rnrolito> piislige 
was not now depeiidenl ii|ion the 
retention or the removal of the 
I.egisl.itiirc. Despite the troubles 
and dislraclions of the period, the 
cilv had grown apace. Ten \ears 
after its incorporation the popiil.ition 
h.id doubled, while its tr.ide and 
commerce had greatly increased. 
Manv of its lirst men were proii>I 
to sit in the civic chair, and the 
names of those it sent to I'arliament 
became ■' household words." In 1840, loronto for the first time lit its streets with gas, and four years later, Keform founded 
its long-time chief organ of journalism, The Glohe, Cinteniporary with the latter, there were issued In the rapidly-developing 
city, eight or ten other news|)apers, whose names the /'tilriot. Mirror, lianner. Colonist, E.xniiiimr, and C/irisliun Uiiaidiaii 
will be familiar to the old-time citizen. I'd these evidences of progress has to be added those connected with im|>roveiI 
facilities of coimiiunic.ition by laiul and water, besides the building of churches and founding of schools. This period is 
also known as that whiih saw the ereition of the Provincial L'niversily. Occasionally, iirogress had its set-backs, such as the 
great fire in 1S41;, which destroyed half a million of (iroperty, including the Cathedral Church of St. James. This calamity 
was followed by the second outbreak of .XsLitic cholera, which cirried off over five hundred of the city's inhabitants, most of 
whom were lately-arrived immigrants. On the whole, however, 'I'oronto during this |)eriod made great strides. It generated 
the energies and amassed the resources which found further .mil higher development in the next decade, known as that ol the 
Railway lira. 

Karly in the " I-'ilties, " I'oronto and the Province began to re.ip the lienefits of m.ichinery and steam, which for the 
previous twenty years had done so much for the develoimient of the .Mother kind. Hitherto they had Lc^n the servants of 
man in the workshop, the mine and the manufactory ; now they were to be brought into play to carry him and his goods over 
the wide stretches of C'anada and the Continent. Railway enterprise had its inceiUion in Canada in a project for connecting 
Toronto first with I«ike Simcoo and the (leorgian Hay, and afterwards, in the more gigantic undertaking, of connecting Montreal 
with Toronto and the towns of the Western peninsula. The lirst of these enterprises was known as the Ontario, Simcoc &

Huron R:iil\v,iy, afti-nvnnls and for long called " tiic N'orlhcrii." 'I'liis road was " coniiilftcd and oiiciicd to Aurora in May, 
iSjj, and to ( 'ollingwood in i!<55. in winili year also Toronto obtained direit railway cornninniealion with Hamilton, hy the 
'roronio \" Hamilton (or more familiarly, the ' (ireat Western '), and with Montreal by llie (Irand Tnnik. The latter line was 
later on extended westward to (liielph, and soon after to Sarnia." Tlie " ( Ireat Western " road was also carried tliroiii;li to the 
Niagara River, in the ICast, and to Windsor and the St. Clair River, in the West. (Ireat was the lienelit to Tororuo of these 
roads, for they laid deep the foundations of the commercial fabric wl\i( h now arose in the capital, and fiifnished to the towns of 
the I'roxince a central emporinm for trade. To the I'ommercial development of the city. Reciprocity with the United Sl.ites. 
which had been secured during Lord l'',lnin's re-gime, was very helphil : and Toronto and the I'rovince were also to gain nnich 
by the Civil War which broke out in iS()i in the neighbouring Republic, c.ilannlous as was that event to those iinhai>pily 
engaged in the strife. 

With the political ilevelopnients in Upper Canada, from the period of the Rebellion, the annalist of I'oronto has not 
mu( h lo do. save to record something of the general movements in the then I'nited Provinces, in which the city took part, or 
by which it was in .some degree aided. Of these movements, two were to be distin<tly helpful to Toronto, namely, the 
founding of a system of Common School ediK'a- 
tion, with its higher e\tensions, in the way of 
Ciramniar or High Schools, leading up to the 
University, and the creatioji of the municipal 
.system of local government in cities, towns and 
villages, with power to levy taxes for local im- 
provements, to provide the machinery and pav 
the cost of local administration. The city was 
also more or less aided by the I'arliamentarv 
appropriations of the period for the extension 
of the canal system of the I'rovince, the con- 
struction of coloni/ation roads, the building of 
public works, and the annual disbursements for 
the encouragement of imniigration. .Another 
gain of the time, from which Toronto and the 
country gcner.dly beiieliteil, w.is the granting bv 
the .Mother Land of Connnercial Tieedom to 
the Colony, and the opening of her ports, un- 
taxed, to its lumber, grain and other (iroducts 
of trade. 

In the Canadian Tarliament, |)artv had 
still its burning (|ueslions to fight over, and 
keen and bitter w.is the strife and great the 
social agitation and discord. On the death of 
Lord .Sydenham, c.nne the brief administr.ition 
of Sir Charles liagot. followed, in r,S4j, bv that 
of Sir Charles (afterwards Lord) .Metcalfe. In 
assuming the (loverixir-deneralship, .Metcalfe 
soon betrayed the fait th.it lie looked i.ith dis- 
favour upon Responsible (lovernmeiit, and that 
in the distribution of patronage and appoint- 
iiHiil to ollicc he rigidly upheld the prerogative 
of the Crown. This attitude, with which the 
Dniper Tory Covernment was idelitilied, w.is a 
retrograde step unpalatable to Reform and to the laberal ele lent in the .-ouiitry. Torlmiately the regime did not last kmg, 
for, in 1S47. .Metcalfe withdrew in ill-heallh to Kngl.ind. and he was succeeded in ofhce bv Lord KIgin, a sim in-law of the 
Karl of Durham. The administration of this statesman is marked by the lull development' of Respimsible Covenmieiit. for 
Ins policy was not only .oiieiliatory, but it led him to pay defereii.e to the wishes of the people, as expressed b> their 
Parliamentary representatives, ami to guide himself by the counsels of those only who enjoyed their conlideii. e. His 
regime was unfortunately marred by factious opposition in I'arli.iment, which then met at .Montreal, and was the si cue of 
frenzied riots and incemliarism, and by much wild agitation in both Trovimes. 'This arose over the passing, bv a Reform 
.\dministralion then in power, of the Rebellion Losses liill. a measure which anllioriml the ( loverniiien't to raise 
Xioo.ooo to iiideinnify Lower Canadians lor their losses in tS.57, but which was op|iosed by the Tories, on the ground th.it 
the claims were preferred by ami the compensatiim was to be paid to "rebels." Notwithstanding this contention, the Itill 
passed, though it cost the country the loss of the Parliament liuildiiigs, which the .Montreal malcontents gave to the ll.imes, and 
for a time subjected Lord KIgin, though unfairly, to public odium. Time, however, allaved the cx( iteiiieiit, .iiid Toronto once

We sh.dl lint complete the political simniiarv, if we chronicle the fact that, in iSyr, liritish Colmnliia entered Confedera-

misaihentures of a political kind, which we need not here go into, this great undertaking was completed, in i.S,S(). to \'.mcou\er 
and the sea. and the Pacific Provinie, with its vast resounes. was thus hrought within easy reach of the older settlements. In 
1S70, Manitoba was carved out of the North-West ; and three years later, Prince ICdward Island completed the chain, from 
ocean to ocean, nf the Confederated liritish Colonies liy entering the Hominion. 

In this Northern h'.mpire of liritain, on the Aimrican Continent, the Provinii' of ( )nt.irio holds the chiel placi. and 
'roronto, its capit.d. has a high and um li.illeMged sh.ire in its prestige and honours. It is perhaps not an i A.iggeration to say

that Toronto has had nuicli to do in making, at ome, the Province and the llominiiin. hrom lur loins ha\e gone lortli not a 
little (if the lirain and muscle which have entered into both and contributed to their stability and greatness. Solar as loial 
government is concerned, Confederation has conferred a boon noon both the capital anil the Province. It has taken from 
'roronto some political importance, but it has given it peace, and removed from it 'he chief cockpit of party estrangement and 
strife. That has gone to the other end of the Province, and ours to-d.iy is the happiest of all histories. < )nly the ghosts of old 
factions now stalk in our legislative halls, though we sometimes seek to reanimate them with the evil spirit of the past. Put we 
have something better to do than this. On our people devolves the care of half a continent, whose nsources are illimitable, 
whose <apabililies are untold. Ours is a noble heritage. In population, if we have not as vet the innnbers which betoken 
progress, we have a country vast and productive enough to n-ar numbers. In our .North West we haw a belt of land which 
could provide sustenance, with plenty, for thirty or forty millions. In Ontario alone, twice the present population of the 
whole Dominion could be comfortably housed and fed. 

With such a past and present, if we are but true to ourselves, who can despair of what the future will bring ? The past 
twenty years' progress of Toronto is in itself sufficient to dispel all doubts. The developnent of the city is but a rellex of the 
development of the nation as a wliole. If this is challenged, let the i|uestiiiner look abroad, and if he has known what 
the country was a generation ago, he will, if a candid man, be convinied. Nor has the orogress alone been ntaterial. liesides

a little slill lo |nr|ili'\ ami lirwiliUr ; hut there is also much to encourage anil ins|iire. 

Only o|itiMiistie ean lii' the ohserver of the reeent urowlh (if 'I'oronto. Since Confeileralion, its strides in i)o|iulation 
and realty outvie escn the nuishriioni growlli ol the typical Western ( ity. In 1SO7, the population was under 50,000, 
and the realty jo niilliun ; today the population is in the neinhliourhocid ol.!00,ooo, while the realty evceeds a 1 .^5 millions ! 
It is said that on one of <iur streets 'Toronto Street thoU};h only a lilock in lentil, the realty an<l personalty are assessed, 
in round nuniliers, at one million doll.irs. 'The imports of the city, within the perioil, show a like marvellous advance. 
In iSti;, the amount was a trille o\er seven millions ; in iSHcj, they approached twenty millions. I''a<ls such as these s|ieak 
volumes. When we lousider not only this ama/iii),' increase, in population and in the \alue ol the city's ratable property, 
lint the evideiK IS on all sides of solid prosperity and substantial comlort, and even luxury, we may venture to picture the 
'Toronto ol' the coming time as a place u( phenomenal importance, and wielding great inllueme over the destinies ol' the 
country. .\lu( li in this respect will of course <lepenil on 
the character of its public men. the repute and public 
spirit of its <iti/cn^. .uid the mamur in which its aff.iirs 
are administered. T.iliiolism re(|uires that a man shall 
work for his country and fellowmen as he works for 
himself. Self-seeking and the building up of the indi- 
vidual at the expense of e\ery other interest has been 
too often the rule, and civic life has thus been deprived 
(if its animating principle, and the public weal has been 
left to shift for itself. Cities, like nations, il should be 
remembered, are living and growing or atrophied and 
dving organisms ; and the individual citi/en has a pro- 
portion.ite interest in the life and prosperity, and a 
corresponding responsibility for the decay and lelrogres 
sion, of the citv which he makes his habitation and linds 
his daily bread. 

( )f interest in any historical retrospect of Toronto's 
annaK must be the list of her chief magistrates. 'There 
h.ive been, in .dl, twenty six men who h.ive filled the 
civic chair since the city's incorporation in 1834. Of 
the number, most of them have been her own sons and 
some of them her best blood. .Xot a few have served 
her interests so well, that they have enjoyed a second. 
and even a third, term. In the early days, when the 
incumbent of ollice was elected by the Council rather 
than liv the people, some mayors have even done better 
than a third term. The list is full of interest for another reason, 
of a high olfice conferred upon them, but identifies with successive periods in the life of the city those who have been 
instrmnent.il in l.iboriously and fiithhilly serving her. We append the list : —

to the city in the autumn of 1S58. The street railway w.is not \et in operation : nor had we those usehil adjuncts of our

.Mcdee, Canada's silver tongued or.itor, who bv the w.iy on ih.it occ.ision could not get beyond the eNordiuni of his exteinpor-

drama, as rendered by the Holinan Sisters, or delighliug ourselves with the personations in light comedy 
of ( 'harlotte Nickinsoii. belter known to a Liter generation as Mrs. Mmrison. 

The p.isNcnger st.ition ,it which we l.imled

gr.itil'ying re.itures in the city's recent career. .\ i|iiarter of a century ago, il' our memory is not at fault, tlure were not more 
than eight or nine city schools, besides the I'roviiici.il, Normal and .Model Schools, iliiellv for professional tr.iiiiiiig. To-day the 
number has ini-reased to forty-eight, while most of the old ones have been rebuilt and enlarged. The school ec|uipmeiil has 
also greatly improved, while the iharacter of the training has advanced. The city has also added to the luimlier of its colleges 
and seals of higher education for both sexes. In ihi^ and oilier ways. Toronto h.is added grcall\ to it-, .illr.iciioiis as ,i place 
of residi nee. iiarliciil.irl)' for those having f.imilies to re.ir and educate. 

A^ the c\e ranges over the immense are.i which rei'eiit years h.ne broughl within the ciiy'-. embr.ice, one notes ,ilso with 
priile the e\ ideiices of a higher ideal in the comfort and luvurv of living. Not onh does the vast number of elegant vill.is and 
semi-ilelached houses on our chief residential streets dinole an increase of we.ilth and the enterprise born of its possession, but 
it is an indication that we have rehned our t.i^le in domestic arcliiliciure .iiid heightened and bcimilicd our m.inncr of life. 

'This is also shown m the lastehil surround 

ings of our homes and in the boulevaiding 
and tree-planting of our streets. The rei og- 
nition of the need for public parks and drives 
about the lity, and what we have already 
aihieved in this direction, are further pleasing 
fe.ilures 111 Toronto's soc i.il adv.inceliieiit. 
.Nor in ihi^ eiuimer.uion must we overlook 
the .iddilion-' which phil.mlhropy h.isof receiil 
vears made to the number of hos|iit.ils. ch.iri 
lies and other eleemo.yn.uy iiistiiulioiis in 
all par! of Ihe lity. The gain in this respcc t 
has been large and gratifying. In these pro 
fu^e evidences of prai tic.il bcnevolein e there 
is proof that the hearts nf Toronto'-, i iti/eii--. 
with all their wc.illh. li.ne not h.ircleiied. 

What Is seen in the way of improvi- 
meiit in Toronto's domestic and six i.il lile 
has its (dunterpart in Toronto's manuf.ictur 
iii^ anil business life. The dingy and < r.impid 
estalilishmeiits of other d.ns h.ive been ri' 
placed by those of sp.u iousiuss. loftiness .ntd 
light. If one w.iiits to see the evidcluc ol 
this, lei him look in at the mammoth w.irc 
rooms of our merchant princes, at the now 
bright ami roouu factories, at the p.il.itial 
banking houses. ,iiid ,il the imposing offices

Not less worthy of ( uniiiicnt. .is m.irks of ihe c ii\ 's progress within the p,i-l iwo or three dec .ides, is the evleiision of ihe 
various agencies of the civic administration, and notably those of the I'oliie Tone .iiid the Tire Urig.ide. The growth of rei eiit 
years of both of these deparlineiils i- another indicalion of the lity's development ; .mil the growth is noi more rcm.irk.ible ih.in 
is the practical effii-icncy. With the ciil.irgemenl of the immii ip.il .ire.i. absorbing as it now doe-, the once oiillyiiig suburbs ol 
llrockton, I'arkdale, Seaton \'illage, \'orkville. and Deer I'.irk, there has of iiecessitv been a i oiisider.ible addition lo the city's 
debt. Itilt to-day the debt does not exceed twelve millions of dollars, and it is amplv i.ivercil by the value of die ciil.irgcd and 
improved lily proiierty. Much, of <ourse, requires still lo be done, and large sums have yet lo be expeniled ere Toronto's city 
fathers and the public geiier.illy shall be content with the sanitary i-ondition and the a'sthetii appearance of the town. Hut 
what has been accomplished insfiires confidence in what will be accomplished, and gives assuram e that Toronto will i (inlimie 
lo add to her ({realness and lo Ihe material and moral enrichment of every phase of her civic lile.

sav. from the intersection of \oiige and T'roiit Streets one embracing some of the sights of the lity to the e.ist and north, the

.\t the st.uting point named, three hue buildings, fairly typical of the city's wealth and enterprise, will be sure to .illr.ict 

the tourist's .itteiltion. These are the Custom I louse, the Toronto liranch of the It.ink of Moiitre.il. and the new Iv erected 

home of the locil lio.ird of Tr.ide. The interior as well as the exterior beaut\ of tlle^e threi' buildings is a matter of just pride 

to the I iti/eus. Trom this point r.idi.ite 

the business streets, whose massivi- ware 

houses may be seen on every hand, each 

house or linn seeming to vie with it-- 

neighbour in the eiei tion of elcg.int .iml 

commodious premises, with the best fii ill 

ties for doing business. To the westward. 

a block and a half dist.int. is the well 

known hostelry of "The (,tiiecn's." .\

not be .ilile to oNcrl.ikc .ill its point- of

therefore wend our way northward, by w.iy

at the Museum. .\rt (iallery and l.ibrarv of 
the TaliK .ition Dcp.irtiuenl. Mlu.ite in the I'lm i ik losure of St. Jaiues' S(|iiaie. Here arc the hea(li|uarters of the ediK alional

.Assyrian and T^gyplian sculplure, I he adjoining building- .ire used as a Model S( hool for the youth of both se\es, and a

the way to the TaliKalion ( M'lice, stands one of the l.irgest ecclesiasli( al edifices in the Dominion and a speci.d adormiienl to 
'Toronto, the .Metropolitan (.Methodist) ('hurch. The 1 hurch owes its existence to the deiioliiin.ition.il /eal and ability of the 
KSi'V. Dr. .Morley Timshon. who for some years made Toronto his home and did mm h lor .Methodism in Canada. The interior 
of tlie liuiUling is eleg.ml .is well as s|i.i( ious. and the whole structure excites admir.ition for the harmony and effei tiveiiess of 
its gener.il design. Close liy, on Sluiler Street, is St. Michaels ( R.C.) Cathedr.il, a massive slrticture with;' line lower and

'riirninfi oastwnnl. Hi' m.iv |)a^^ iiito one or other of tlu' two ininiipal ^^■^illl■Mlial slrcels of tlic castfrn part of the city 
|ar\is Sirrc't and Shcrhoiinu- Slrii-l. On holli ihf visitor will liiid sonic ornate villas, set out wit!) well kept groiniils anil plenty 
111 heanlilul shade trees. Mere he will also find some eharniing specimens of ecclesiastical architecture, a particidarly attraitive 
one hein;,' the Jarvis Street I'.aptist ( 'luirch. In Jarvis Street is situate the Toronto Collejji.ile Institute, one of the liest of the 
second.uy vchools of the Province, inider its illicient recti>r, Anhilialil M.icMiirchy, .\I..\. Occupying a sipi.ire .ilioiit ten acres 
in extent, (Linked liy Cierrard, Carlton and Sherlioiirne Streets, are the heaulifiil Hortiiiiltiiral (lardens and l'a\ilion, ,i shrnie 
of flora imich l'rei|iiented liy the citizens and the wheeled cheriilis of the home, '('he j;rounds are laid out with grcit t.iste. 
and with an artist's eye for lloral adornment. In the north eas* corner of the town overlookini; the lieaiitiftil vale ol the I )on, 
are the city cemeteries, where sleep " the nide forefathers of the hamlet " the old time " Little \'ork " with their offsprinji ol 
a later generation. .Across wh.it is known as the Rosedale Ravine, which is connected with the city liy two ornamental bridges, 
cMends to the northward a new and pictiiiVMine siiliiirh of Toroiito. This section of the city should lie seen liy the visitor 
who h.is an eye lor du' lie.iiitifiil. There are pleas,int drives in ti.e neighlioiirhood, and the uhole region is taken in liy the new 
scheme of a licit Railway round the city, and liy a lordon of pulilic drives and p,irks. 

We sh.ill now turn westward along llloor Street and take a glance at Occidental Toronto, for nearly a couple ol 
generations, liloor Street was the northern limit ,.^,,- 

of the city, and for long more than one-half of 
the .irea to the south of it w,is covered with 
virgin woods. I'oilay, not only has the city 
lieen Imilt ii|i to the erstwhile Iiounds, hut il 
exlemls far lieyond iind is now cliinliing the 
ridge, the ani'ienl marge of the lake, and on 
this high elevation is lir.inching out into vast 
evtensioiis <if the town. Here avenues and 
streets are lieing r.ipidly opened up to the west 
ward of I )eer l',irk and \(inge Streil. the re.il 
est. He ageniies giving an impetus to tlieci\ic' 
development. In a lieautiful sitii.ition on this 
high ground, thirty acres in extent, is lieing 
erected the new home for I'pper Canada Col 
lege. ,\ half mile or so to the eastward is the 
pretty woodland cemeteiy of .Mount I'le.isant. 
I'ursiiing our westw,ir(l route on I'door we come 
to the upper lioundary of die (,)ueen's i'ark, on 
the northern alignment of which is situate .\lc 
.Master Hall, the denominational college of the 
I!a|)tist liody. It is Imilt of a rich dark lir<iwn 
stone, with dressings of lilack and red lirick. 
The ( iillege is the gilt ol the donor whose n.ime 
it hears, and it is ,iriili,iteil willi the roroiuo 
L'niversity. On I'.loor Street uill lie found ,i 
continuous chain of ( hurches, called into i \ 
istence liy the recent evlension to the north 
ward of the residenti.il .ire.i of the citv. Their 
elaliorate arcliilccturi' ,inil elegant roominess 
within ,ire indic.iiiM- of the geiier.il opulence of 
the neighlioiirhood. 

Turning into the (,lueeii's I'.uk. .1 short 
drive will liring the visitor to the precincts of Toronto Cniversity. We say precincts, for unfortunately this grand Norman 
pile, which was justly deemeil the llower an<l glory of roronios architecture, fell recently ,1 prey to the llaines. I.nckil> its 
outer walls, and particularly its nolile front, were saved Irom ilestructioii, and the lieneli.ence which the i alamity called forth 
may lie expeited soon to restore the liuilding to its uses. Though in p.irtial ruin, the lieauty of the structure and the harmony 
of Its design are not concealed Irom the admiring spectator, .\cross the lawn from the University will he found a group of 
huildings, auxiliaries of the College, \\i. : the new liiological Institute, the School of Tractical Science and the Meleorologic.nl 
Ohservatory of the Province. In rear of these are W'ycliffe College, the theological hall of the evangelical section of the 
.\ngliian Church, and the fine auililoriiim of the l'niversity Noung Men's Chrisli,ni .Association. Tlu- parent home of the 
N'. M.C. A. is in Vonge Street, a little to the south of the College .\venue. In the (,)ueen's Park are in course of er.-ction the 
new Parliament Ituildiiigs, ,1 v.ist pile HJiich is now lieginniiig to lake noMe form and shape, (hough a c|uestionalil' intrusion 
on tliL' reireation grounds of the people. In the vicinity will he fouiul a line bron/e statue of the late Hon. (leorge Drown, 
and .1 momiuieiil in memory of the volunteers of the city who fell at Ridgeway, on the Jiid of June, iS()6, in repelling invasion.

lor the disinterestedness of his motives, and pay triliiite to the liierarv charm, as 

well as the force and lucidity, of his writint;s. Net it is not in a negative, liut in

congregation in the western fcction of the city. During the se\en \ears ol his pastorale, Chalmers' ( 'luirch has grown from a 

very small mission to an important and inlhiential congregalioii. Mr. .\liitch is deservedly 

popular in this fold of I'reshyterianisrn, and is untiring in his relief of the poor, in advancing 

temperance work, and generally in promoting the high interests of his calling in this part 

of the Lord's vineyard. He is a member of the Ivpial Rights' Association.

on I )overcourt Road until increase<l numbers compelled removal to ICssery Hall, corner 

of <,)iieen and I. isgar Streets. In iSSi the rear of the present church was built on the 

lot at the corner of Doverconrt Road and Argyle Street, whiih had been presenled to the 

congregation by Mr. 'I'honias l.aily. In iSSS the present edifice was built and opened lor 

public worslii|i. The 1 hurcli is of Romanesc|ue style, built of pressed red brick, with 

terra cotla and red stone trimmings. The exterior is jilaiii, chaste and well iiropoitioned.

ai cepted a <all to the first liaptist Church of lirantford, and in 18(15 removed to 

.Montreal to t.ike < h.irge of the First I'aptist Church of that city. He returned to 

lirantford in 1870 and removed to Hrockville in 1880 to work up a church which was 

in financial distress. In 1SS4 this congregation was so strengthened that he devoted him 

self to building up I loverconrt Church. During his six years' ministration there the 

membership has grown from 50 to 275, various branches of work have been developed, 

and the church placed on a sound footing. 

The Rev. .\lexander Sullicrland, D.D., an able divine of the Methodist body, and 

the powcrhil leader of what is known a- tie "Third I'arty" in Canadian politics, seekiiij;

land's early years were years of toil and ailversitv. 

dirough whiih he struggled nobly to educate him 

self for the ministry and the high positions in the 

Cliur< h to which he has since attained. After a 

brief course in X'ictoria College, Cobourg, he was 

received into full connection with the Conference of his Church and ordained. He then 

lilleil pastoral charges succissively in Niagara, 'I'horolil, Drummondville, Hamilton. I'or- 

niito .ind .Montreal; and in 1874 was elected (leiieral Secretary and Clerical I'reasuier of 

the Missionary Society of the Church. In this responsible position he has travelled o>- r 

the whole Dominion, superintending missionary work and stimul.iting Ihe /eal of his 

denomination, and at the same time doing much for the cuise of temperance and other 

moral reforms. He has been a mighty worker for union in the Conferences of his Church, 

in which he has held the highest positions, and repe.itedly been its delcgateil representative 

•ibroad. He is a man of immense energy and unllagging /eal, and done much to mould 

the thought and guide the work of his (,'liurch. In 1871^, \i(loria L'niversily conferred 

upon Dr. Sutherland the degree of Doctor in Divinity. 

The Rev. Ira Smith, I'astnr of lieverley Street liaptist Church, was I irri in the Township ol Saltlleit. ( )nt., June 71I1. iS((). 

Mr. Smith i-omes of siurdv lintish stoik, and inherits from both father and mother the memories of the War of 181 j, and from 

their forebears the memories of the Revolutionary War and of loyal service on the siile oflhet'rown. .Mr. Ira Siiiilh was 

educated at Wdoostoi k College, and at Toronto L'niversily, of which he is an tin lergraduate. Like his fuller, the Rev. 'Thos. 

Holland Smith, he studied for the ministrv of the liaptist denomination, and in 1877 was ordained ,ind inducied into the pastorate 

of the liaptist Church in Dundas. In 1880 he acce|)ted a pastorale in Itarrie, and two years later one in Waterlord ; and in 1885 

came to Toronto to lake the pastoral oversight of his (iresenl charge. His labours here have been instrumental in building up a 

large and still growing congregation, which erected, three years ago, a very comnuidiiius house of worship. Mr. Smith has held 

the Secretaryship of the Home Mission Hoard of the Baptist Convention of Ontario and (,)uebec since 1888,

Rev. Cicorge .M. .Milligan. I>..\., I'.islor of ( )ld St. .Xnilrew's Presbyterian Church, 

was born at Wick, < 'aithness-shire, Scotland, in 1S41, and came with his parents at an early 

age to Canada, where they made their home at 
Kingston, Ontario. Intending todevote himself 
to the work of the ministry, he entered (Queen's 
L'ni\ersity and at once took a high place in the 
('ollcge class list. In 18C12, he took his 1!..\. 

degree, graduating with honours. Six years afterwards he was ordained, and laboured 
for a year in the County of Middlesex. Here ho received a call to Detroit, and in a 
pastoral charge in that < iiy he remained for nearly seven years, meeting with a large 
measure of sik cess. In i,S76. Mr. .Milligan was invited liy the congregation known as 
Old St. .Xndrew's, Toronto, to fill the pul|)it of this hi toric church, and, accepting the 
call, he was at once inducted to the charge. 'The success of his work soon appeared 
in the erection, in 1878, of the line building at the corner of Jarvis and Carlton Streets, 
and in the gratifying extension of the church's membership. During the past twelve 
ye.irs. the church has continued to grow and has become a sphere of influential and 
usel'ul work. It has now a membership of over five hundred, with a large annual 
revenue. I'ntiring as well as able. Mr. Milligan is a forte in Presbyterianism, and is 
to be found serving every good and useful cause. He is President of the Mii.isterial 
.\ssociation of the city, and has taken an 
active interest in educational ,md leniper- 
ance work, as well as much labour on the 

lAcculive of the Foreign Mission Hoard of his Church, .\gainst the incorporation 

of the Jesuits and their endowment by the Stale, he entered a vigourous protest, 

and last year look a prominent part in platform discussion of the subject. I'or 

some years he was one of ll e ex.imincrs in the Departmental Intermediate I'.xami-

Society, and has also been Mission Secretary of the i'rcsliyterian Church. 

.Xuion;; the rif;ures of well known clergymen of the city, once familiar to the 
citizens, was that of the Kev. Dr. John Jenniiins, for many years pastor of the Hay 
Street I'nited I'reshyterian Church. Thi.i e\ccllent minister has lon^ since gone to 
Ills rest, thouf;h his memory survives to-day in many breasts, and his laithful work 
ill the ministry has, we are sure, borne no small fruit. The Hay Street U. !'. Church, 
which was erected in 1,^48, has, in the march of improvements, also passed from 
the scene, and its connregation has become merged in other gatherings of the I'res- 
byteri.m ( 'Inirch. We are glad to preserve in these pages the likeness of an old and 
worthy pioneer in the Cliristian ministry in this city, who in his <lay was faithful to 
his sacred calling, and also took a warm interest in the cause of etlucation. Two 
of his sons worthily represent his name in Toronto. 

The Rev. Donald (1. Sutherland. D.D., 1.1,1!., Lite I'aslor of the Kim 
Street Methodist Church, is a native of Toronto, having been born in the <itv in 
iiS^i). I ii' is the son of t 'aplain l.niies Sutherland, a well-known owner of steam- 
boats on 1. , ike Ontario, who was killeil in the Desjanlins Canal accident in 1S57. 'I'he 
subject of this sketch was educated , it Il.imilton ColleLiiale Institute and at \'ictoria 
University, where he took in 1 (lurMthe 
degrees of 1!..\., .\!..\. and l!.D. lor a 
time Mr. Sutherland inclined to the pur 
suit of law as a profession, and w ith that 

view he studie<l in the oltiie of Jiiilge O'Reilly, Hamilton, took the law course at 
Toronto Univer'-ity, and obtained the degree of I.I,. I!. I le afterwards, however, 

took a theological i-ourse. entered the Methodist Church as a probationer, and in 

i.S(),S was ordained a minister b\ the late Rev. Dr. .Morley Tunshon. Ilisihief 

a|ipoinlments have been in King^loll. (iall, Simcoe, St. 'Thomas, London, and Tor 

onto. He !ias held positions in the Church as Chairman of District, Secretary of 

Conference. Confereiue and L'niversity ICxaniiner ; and from N'ictoria L'niversity has 

had the degree conferred upon him of Doctor of Divinity. The reverend gentleman 

has also been a member of three Confereiues. Dr. Sutherland has travelled con 

siderably in Ivastern countries, and has published in the denominational magazine 

interesting accounts of ihe-e excursions. 'I'he aciouiUs are graphic and entertaining. 
I'he (leneral Secretary of the Domestic and I'oreign Missionary Society of 

the Church of laigland In Canada, the Rev. C. H. Moekridge, D.D., .\ssistant 

.Minister in the Cluirc h of the Holy 'I'rinity, who is also editor of the Canadian 

Church Misiiiuiary Mni^azine, is a resident of 'Toronto, so that in a sense 'Toronto 

is now the headiiuarters of that Society. It was formed in i.S.S? by the Provincial

of Ontario, (,)uebec and the Lower Provinces, together w'th two clergymen and two laymen from each Diocese of the Ij cle-

'The Church of St. .Stephen, the I'roto- .Martyr, on the icirner of College Street and Hellevue ,\venue, is one of tlu inkr- 

esting old landmarks of the city, where for many years it stood alone in fields that are now entirel\ built on and deiiselv iieopled.

Canada resort should be had to the I,aws of ICngland as the rule for the decision of the same. These early legislators, 
imhued with the spirit of the liritish Constitution, which they desired as freemen to follow as a model, then jiassed an 
Act to establish trial by jury; and in the second session of the First Parliament of Upper Canada (held at Newark [Niagara] in 
the summer of i 79_^), they abolished sla\ cry in the Province. Other measures of the time made provision for the erection of 
court-houses, jails, and such other publii buildings, with the necessary let.al machinery, as were re(iuired in the various districts 
into which the Pnjviiice was then divided. Prior to the constituting of the Province, the government of any settlements there 
were in the West partook of the military i haracter which was introduced at the Conquest. If offences were committed, the 
military commandant went through regular forms of law, and tried, and sometimes himself e.\e( uted, those whom he deemed 
deserving of the death jienalty. 'I'he law pro( eedings were usually summary, and not infreiiuenlly irregular, the oflicer, as it 
more than once happened, being judge, gaoler, sheriff and executioner. .\t the founding of the Province, there seems to have 
been a Court in existence, designated the Court of Common Pleas, being part, no doubt, of the legal machinery of Lower 
Canada. This Court, however, was abolished in 1794, and was not reestablished in Upper Canada until 1849. What took its 
place was the (,'ourt of King's Hench. which was created by an .\ct of the Provincial Assembly (34 (ieo. III., ch. 2); and to 
preside over the Court a Chief Justice and two Puisne judges were appointed. Hy the same .\ct a Court of .\ppeal was estab- 
lished. The hrst Chief Justice of Upper Canada was the lion. Win. ( )sgoode, after whom Osgoode Hall is nameil, and his 
appointment dates from 171)2, though he seems to have served in the newly ((instituted Province for only a little over a year. 
The fust Puisne judges WTe the Hon. Wm. Dummer Powell and the Hon. John ICImslev, both of whom were appointed in 
1794, the latter sncceedinu to the Chief Justiceship two years later. Judge Powell did not reach the Chief Justiceship until 
iSiO. The Hon. John While, the first .Xtlorney (ieneral of Upper Canada, who, by the way, was killed In a duel, was 
appointed when the Puisne' judges received their patents from the Crown. I'he Law .Society was first established in 17(^7 by 
the .Vet 37 (ieo. III., ch. 1,5. which enabled the then legal practitioners in the Pro\ince to form themselves inio a siuiely and 
make rules for its government. In 1S22, this .\ct was in part repealed .md amended by 1 Ceo. 1\'.. 1 h. 5, by which it was 
ena( ted that "the treasurer and benchers of the Law So( iety, for the lime being, and iheir su( lessors, are declared to be a body 
corpor.ite and politic by ihe name of the Law Societv of Upper Canada." Under the by-laws and regulations of the Society, 
its affairs are goxerned by a lioard of IUtk h 
ers, of which there are at present thirty elective 
members (exclusive of c.v i'jffiiio members), 
consisting for the most part of gentlemen of 
high legal attainments and long standing in 
the profession. The lienchers sit in Con- 
vocation every term for the call of barristers, 
the admission of altorneys and xilicitors to 
practice, and of students to enter the Society, 
the fees paid by whom form part of its revenue. 
When, by the .\ct of i8j2, Ihe l,iw 
Society was formally incorporated, a site was 
sought in the city for Ihe Canadian "Inns of 
Court." In i,S2,S the present site of ( )sgoode 
H.ill w.is purchased from Sir John lieverley 
Kobiiison, and the .Society proceedeil to the 
erection and occupancy of its new nuartcrs. 
As yet (1832), however, only the east wing 
was completeil, and not till 1S45 was the 
west wing erected, having a connecting hall 
or corridor between the two, with a large Kksh imk ok .Mk. IIknrv o'Hkikn, i^).C'., Siieruoukne SiKKgr,

surmoimliny tlome. Some twelve years later, tlie ( eiilral structure was remoilelled, ami in the idiirse (H a lew years the whole 
was completed, with a hamlsome/iiiv/i/c of cut stone. Of recent years, consideralile additions ha\e been made to the liiiildiiigs, 
includinj; a fine Convocation Hall and a series of new Court rooms. Within and Hithnul, ()sj;o(iile Hall is now, architecturally, 
an ornament to the ci'v. Here law has its chiel' home, .uid justice is doled out to the suitor in the various High Courts of the 
Province. These now consist ol' the Supreme ( 'oiirt of Judicature, composed ot tlu' Chief Justice of Ontario and three Justices 
of .\ppeal, and the High Court of Justice, of which tlure are three branches or divisions, having i oncurrent jurisdiction. The 
latter are known as the (Queen's liench and Connnon I'leas Divisions, each presided over liy a Chief Justice and two jmlges, 
and the Cham cry Division, presided over liy a Chancellor and three judges.' 

It mav he said of law, not only in the Province hut in the Dominion as a whole, that il has drawn into the |irofession 
more of tlie hrain and energies of the coiuUry than ha\e gone into any other pursuit or c.illing. h'rom this source, mainly, have 
tlu- I'arli.unents and Legislatures of the 
country drawn to a |ireponderaling extent. 
This is partly accounted for hy the ne< es 
sity for lawyers for ex|)ounding the Con- 
stitution, for drafting Hills, and for giving 
form and shape to the national and pro 
vincial legislation, .\nother reason may 
l)e found in the fact that the iircfession 
are generally good and ready speakers. 
Above all, they are usually practical men. 
not theori/ers, and know how to econo 
nu/e time ami e\pe<lite business. Com- 
monly, also, their reputation is high and 
their personal character unblemishe<l. 
This is most trui\ maintained when one 
speaks of the leading men who practice at 
the liar, and of those, especially, who sit 
on the liench. The high character and 
independence of the judiciary of Canad.i 
is the proud boast of the people. Doubt 
less, no liale of this is due to the f ii t 
that the judges are not dependent on the 
appointing power, nor is their retention in 
otiice subject to the will of the peopli-. 
'I'hey hold tluir positions during good 
behaviour, and can be riinovetl only li\ 
petition of both Houses of Parliament. 
Their tenure of olfice is thus assured, and 
in this respect the principle is al'ied to 
that in T'.ngland, but imlike that in \ogUL 
in many of the neighbouring Stales. .Most 
:)f them, in their day, have fought in the 
political arena, but of no one has it been 
saiil that he has carried Party with him to 
the liench. .Almost without exciption 
have the) been honourable men, and h.ae 
i>een spe( ially distinguished for their judi- 
cial .mil dis|)assionate character. High, 
particularly, has been the reputation, alike 
for honour .ind ability, of the Chief Justices 
and Ch.incellors of the L'pper Canada and 
Ontario liench. Their names shed lustre 
on a noble profession. Here is the roll 
of the later ones, who have been personally known to many of the < iti/eiis of to-il.iy : Kobinson, .\Iacaulay, .NM.ean, 
Richards, Draiier, Harrison, Moss, Cameron, and Hagarty, C/iief fusticfs : Hume Mlake, Spragge, N'ankoughnel, and liovd, 
Chtincdlor^. High, also, has been the repute and the juridical status of their brethren on tlu' liench who have not attained 
to the chief pri/.es of the judiciary. •There is hardly a name in the roll of the Provincial liem h that will fail to be remembered 
not only in the legal records, but in the general annals, of the coualry. The liar, also, has known many eminent men, whose 
gifts would do honour lo the l-iw in the .Motherland or imked to the highest professional circles of any (duntry. These pages 
preserve the reconi of a lew of them.

enterprise in the dni.u trade, imr was the medical pnilession thronged not to say glutted as it appears to he now. Vet men 

lived then to a good old age, and barring periods 
ol pestilence, few were wont to lie gathered to 
their fathers until they were full ripe for the 
sickle. 'The good people of the time did not 
live in such a whirl as we do, and they took 
more al enjoyment out of mundane existence. 
There was therefore nut sn mu( h need of the 
health officer, or of heneliciary .societies and 
mortality statistics. 'The doctor was hut rarely 
in re(|uisition, for the domestic pharmacopn;ia 
w,is usually at hand and the old wife could he

drawn from ihe primitive herbs and simples. 
\\ hat pimpernel, liverwort, rue and rosemary 
cduld not cure, must have been smitten of the 
ICvil One and was past the chirurgeon's art. 
Kven for the most persistent ailments, a posset 
brewed by the family herbalist was counted a 
more sovereign remedy than the (|iiassia of a 
while faculty of physiiians. Troin an early 
period in the l'ro\iiicial history we find mention 
made, however, of doctors and licensed practi- 
tioners. Commonly these were old armv sur- 
geons who had emigrated to the colony, or hail 
come to it on the staff of the first governors. 
These early physicians, we read, carried medi- 
( ines and a pair of tiny scales, weighing out 
their prescriptions at the houses of their patients, 
and their long(|ueues, powdered hair, and ruffleil 
shirt fronts eiifoned the respect which their 
professidii cdimnanded. 
In the aliseiKc of any wurk, of an historical or liiographical character, dealing with the Medical Trdfession in the early 
days of the Province, we have I'ounil it diltii ult to say much as an introduction to this chapter. ( )f a few of the first practitioners, 
Dr. Scadding, in his 'I'oronto of Old. gives us some .account, and this we have been able to supplement through the courtesy of 
Dr. CannilT, late City Health Otticer, and like the venerable historian of 'Toronto, an enthusiastic student of the civic and 
Trovincial annals. 'This gentleman is at present, we are glad to know, preparing for the press an historical account, with 
interesting original documents, of the Mediial Profession in Upper Canada, from the founding of the Trovince to the year 
1S50. Its appearanie, we venture to think, will be eagerly looked for. Chielly from this source we learn some facts with 
referenie to the pioneers df the profession and of the establishing of the Medical Schools. We are also indebted to Dr. I'yne 
for some statistic al inlormation regarding the College of Physicians and Surgeons. 

'The three most notable of the first practitioners in the city, were Drs. Win. Warren Haldwin, James Macaulay, and 
(.;hristo|)her Widmer. I )r. Italdwin came to York (Toronto) towards the close of the last century, and was the first civilian in 
the embryo capital to practice mediiine. He also entered upon the study of law and was duly legalized to |)ractice that pro- 
fession as well as that of a doctor. Mis name is well know 1 in early Canadian history, and our readers need hardly be told that

llif hill over-looking Davenport Road and the spaeious avenue that hears the name of his residence. Drs. Maeaiilay and 
Widnier were originally surgec/ns in the army. Dr. Ma<aulay, who w.is the lather of Sir James Macaulay, a distinguished 
oeeupant of the L'pper Canada lieiuh, was attaehed to the 33rd Regiment and the ^Jueen's Rangers, of which (ioveriior .Simcoe 
was Colonel during the ke\(ilutionaiy War. He removed from Niagara to Toronto aliout the year 171/1, and long practised his 
profession in the city. Dr. U idmer, who was a Scrgion on the Cavalry Staff, began his medical career in Toronto in 1815 or 
iHid, and was for many years a familiar figure in the professional and social lircles of the Capital, .\ssociated with Dr. 
W'idmer for a time was Dr. I'eter Deihl, who came to the city from .Montreal, and died so recently as the year iSfi.S. In their 
early careers, tluy monopoli/Ced almost the whole medical pra<ticc nf the town and vicinity. ,\nolher of the pioneer 
medicos, w.is Dr. Thomas D. .Morrison, who com 
inenced practice in \i)rk, in 1.SJ4. when Win. I. yon 
.Mackenzie came to the pl.iie, and was a participant 
with that "reliel" in the trouhles of i.S,?;. Dr. .Mor- 
rison was one of the lirst aldermen, after the 
ineorporation of the city, and its third .Mayor. Dr. 
John Rolph is another of the notalile names of the 
profession in the city, and he also, as we have seen, 
wa; a sharer in the storm which disaffected Reform 
at th. time breweil. .\mong other pre rehellion 
practitioners were Drs. Daily, Rees, King. Ciwynnc, 
Duggan, Crawl'ord, Hornby, and Mcllnuirray. Of 
the later men, who have passed from the scene, a few- 
names deserve to be chronicled here. These are Drs. 
Hovell, lieaumont, Hodder, Hall, I'hilbrick, Darrelt, 
Herrick, N'ieol, lierryman, l-'ulton, Russell, Campbell, 
lladglev, and Hallowell. .\ few are still with us. such 
as Dr. Joseph Workman, as connecting links with 
the past. The later-day men the Ogdeiis, .\ikins, 
Wrights, Richardsons, 'Thorburiis, Temples, liethunes, 
Cirasetts, S|iragges, etc., worthily maintain the high 
repute of the profession and do honour to the memory 
of the distinguished men of their huuiane art w ho have 
preceded them. 

I'Voiii an early period there seems to have been 
a Medical lioard in L'liper ( 'anada, for the licensing 
of I'ractitioners, but of its organization aiul any legis- 
lation passed in its behalf, it is dilliciilt now to obtain 
information. Krom I )r. ( 'aniiiff we learn that the first 
Medical School in the l'ro\ince was the .Medical 
Department of King's College, which early in "the 
fifties " became by .\ct of Parliament the University 
of Toronto. The professors of that school were Drs. 
Ciwynnc, King, lieaumont, Herrick, Nicol, SiilKvan 
and ( )'llrieii. The school seems, however, not to have 
fieen long in e\istence, the Legislature depriving the 
L'niversity of its early .Medical and Law faculties. 
Roliih's School of Medicine, which for a time foriiied 
the .Medical Department of \ictoria College, Cobourg, 
was founded by the Hon. Dr. Rolph in 1.S43, andwas 
incorporated by Act of rarliament eight years later. 
In 1.S5.5, it became the 'Toronto School of Medicine and was al'tiliateil with both 'Toronto and \icloria L'iii<\rsities. liesides 
I )r. Rolph, it had on its teaching staff for a time, I )r. Joseph Workman, I >r. ( ieikie, I )r. ( 'annil'f, I )r. lierryman, 1 )r. .\ikins, and 
Dr. Wright. 'The two latter gentlemen are still on the faculty, with some sixteen other medical men anil over a do/eii lecturers, 
demonstrators and instructors. Dr. W. 'T. .\ikiiis is at present Dean of the T'ac nlty. 

In 1.S50 Trinity .Medical .School was founded by Drs. Hodder, Hovell, Kadgley, and Uethune, and then became a Kaculty 
of Trinity University. In 1855 ft it however cea.sed to be a Kaculty of the University, though in 1871 it was reorganized under 
a Kaculty differently constituted but with many of the original professors. In 1877 the School was alVilialed with 'Trinity 
University and to-day has a teaching Kaculty, with Dr. (Ieikie as Dean, composed of ten doctors of the city and twelve 
lecturers and demonstrators. 

In 1883, the Women's Medical College was founded, and is doing good work under Dr. Xevitt, Dean of the I'aculty, 
and a leaching staff of over twenty professional men of the city. Toronto has also the following schools : the ( )ntario College

I'he Homeopathic Hospital, Jarvis Street (.see page j.S), had its inception in a 
small free dispen.sary which the friends of Homeopathy opened in 1887, on Ri<li 
inond .Street Mast. 'I'he movement was aided by the city with a grant and the 
inslilulion was voluntarily attended by the physicians of this school, prominent 
among whom were Dr. John Hall, Senior, and the late Dr. ( ampbell. I^arly in 
1890. it was felt that there was a pressing need for a I loiheopathic Hospital, to 
supjilement the work of the dispensary, and by means of private subscriptions and 
an increased grant from the city, the first venture was made iii a house at the 
(iMiKr of Richmond and Duncan Streets. The hospital was opened on January 
17th. ttilh one patient and a staff consisting of lady siiperinlcndenl, caretaker and 
housekeeper. I'.efore two months had elapsed the accommodation of the hospital 
was found lo be utterly inadeipiale for the demands upon it. The preseni ipiarlers 
were opened on May Sth, largely through the efforts of Ills Honour Judge Mac 
dougall. .\ |)rivate ward was furnished by .Mrs. ( Irani .Mac donald, and the largest 
public ward was furnished and ilecorated by .Mr. John Ross Robertson. I!y.\ugust 
the average number of ])atients was seventeen and the calls upon the dispensary 
averaged one hundred a week. 'Pile nursing staff had reached six a head ruirse 
and live in training. Since ( )ctober a regular training school for luirses has been 
organized, the members of which attend lectures by the medical staff. The hospital 
movement has had the hearty endorsation of the members of the Homeopathic i)rofession in I'oronto.

The care of the sick has not been left in Toronto entiiely to the good (iriice-. of mcdiial n\cn. Willi the cue .ilso of 
the destitute, provision has been made for the sick by the philanthropy of the citizens, aiiUd to some extent b\ both the 
Corporation and the Provincial Legislature. The Toronto (leneral Hospital is a nobk' example of the city's luimanitv, and 
largo is the provision it has made, and annu- ^^t^my - jti /jfci'ri^-ir 

ally makes, for the maintenar.ee and eipiip 
meiit of the institution. As early as 1817. 
the (iovernnient of Upper Canada granteil 
400 acres towards the fimndation of a (leneral 
Hospital in the city. With this land appro 

and /.'4,ooo i^^^^^^B^^I^^^Bk!-'^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^fe^^l^^^ ^ 

and Patriotic Society of the Province, being 
unexpended moneys collected for the relic' 
of sufferers in the War of 1812. an hospital 
building was erected, in 1817, at the corner 
of King and John Streets, near where the 
.\rlinglon Hotel now stands. It was, how- 
ever, not devoted to its purposes until i8.-!y, 
the (iovernnient having appropriateil it five 
years before for the housing of the Legisla- 
ture, fire having destroyed the Parliament 
Muildings. In 1854, the present Hospital 
site, occupying four acres, on (lerrard Street 
Kast, between .Sackville anil Sumach Streets, 
was selected and buildings were erected. Kksm.k.nck oi Dk. s. (. T. llvMos, h,„..k v.kik, v..

Another lienel'icent instiliition is the 
Mouse of I'rovideme, I'ower Street, near liy 
the (ieneral Hospital. It is .supported liy 
the Kunian Catholic Church, and nianageil 
by its worthy and self-denying sisterhood. 
Its object is the relief of the aged, infirm, 
and destitute of both sexes, without distinc- 
tion of creed, and of hapless orphaned 
luunam'ty. It well deserves the aid and 
sympathy of the charitable. The Hospital 
fiir .Sick Children, on College .\venue, at the 
corner of IClizabeth Street, appeals with an 
uiu|uestioned claim to every feeling heart. 
The new and elegant building, which has 
just been erected, shows the response of the 
citizens to this excellent charity ; and its 
bright interior, with the good offices of its 
kindly management, will make glad the heart 
of its suffering inmates. Towards the erection 
of the new building, the 1 ity, in 1SS7, made 
"a Jubilee (iraiU" of $20,000. The hospital 
is designed fiir the relief of children as out- 
door patients from birth to the age of fourteen 
years, and for the reception of children as 

in-door patients from two to fourteen years. In connection with the institution, thanks to the beneficence of Mr. b)hn Ross 

Kobertson who gave the mom.-y for its erection, there is a convalesceiU branch on the Island, called the Lakeside Home. 

St. Inhn's Hospital, on Major Street, is another excellent institution which well merits recognition in these pages. 

In I'omiection with the hospitals, it is hard to refrain from saying a woril here of one or two of the city's charities, 

though we hail hopeil, had space permitted, to have given them a separate chapter. The Industrial School is not altogether a 

charity, for tlie I'rovincial Ciovermneru. we believe, contributes to its maintenance, as does the city, and the (iovernment has 

given it a plot of eight acres at .Mimico, and leased it forty-two .acres in addition. The institution, which owes its inception to 

the zeal of ICx-.Mayors \\ . H. Howkuid and \V. I!. McMurrich, well deserves the couiUenance anil support of the citizens. lCi|ually 

dcsirving of support is the Newsboys' Lodging and Industrial Home, on h'reilerick Street, which receives the good offices of its 

longtime I'riend and benefactor. Sir Daniel Wilson, and those of the zealous 

Chairman of the Home, the Hon. Siiiator .Mian, !).('. I.. Of other deserving 

charities we must content riurselves merely with their eiumieration, viz.; the 

Home for Incurables, on Dunn .\venue ; the House of Industry, Kim Street : 

the St. \i( holas Home, Lombard Street : the Infants' Home and Infirmary, St. 

.\I.uv Street: the Hillcrest ConvalesieiU Home; the Wayfarers' Home; the 

I'risoners' .\id ; the Ladies' Mission and Relief Society; the Haven fi>r Dis- 
charged female I'risoners; the Industrial Refiige ; the Sunnysiile Children's 

Home ; ;ind the Inilustri;d Refuge fi)r(iirls, a section of the 'nslitulion known 

as the .Men er Keform;ilory lor (•'emales, which is supported by the I'rovincial 

(iovernmeiU. I'o ;ill these i h;irities the city devotes about $30,000 yearly. 

To these institutions h.ive to be ;uMed the Hoys' Home, on (leorge .Street ; the 

Ciirls' Home, on ( lerrard Street L;ist ; and the ( )rph.ins' Home, on Dovercourt 

Road all worthy objects of public beneficence. I'or the e\cellent man:igement 

of these charities, the city is indebted to many philanthropic lailies of Toronto, 

who find in them a worthy field fiir their activities. The Hoys' Home is designed 

fi>r the training and maintenance of destitute boys not convicted of crime, from 

the ages of (wi: to fi)urteen. 'The institution, which was opened in 1R59, afliirds 

ai commodation for over 150 boys. Since its fiiimdation, it has afforded a home 

fi)r nearly i.fioo boys. The dirls' Home was established as a public nursery in 

the year 1857. Some three ye;irs huer, the institution was enlarged to admit girls up to the age of fifteen, and to train them 

for household work. The Orphans' Home was founded in 1851 for the relief and support of all friendless orphans of members 

of all Protestant denominations. Ilesides these charities, the city's destitute or distressed are materially helped by the various 

n;itiiinal societies and benevolent organizations, ecclesiastical and industrial.

EDUCATION, from :iii iwrly period in the liisiory of L'pptr Cannila, lias had a large sliarc in tlu- iiitiTi'sts of tin- 
juoplc, and few conuniinitics have more heavily and uncomplainingly taxed themselves for its support than have the 
piil>lie of the City and the Province. The C'ity's annial assessment for I'lihlic Schools alone amoimts now to ahoiit 
$fioo,ooo ; while it disburses nearly another himdred thousand in support of the Collegiate Institutes and Separate 
Schools. These two sums exceed in amoimt the whole Legislative grant of the Provincial tlovernmeiit for the yearly mainten- 
ance of all grades of the schools in Ontario, including the ilishurseineiit for inspection and general adininistration. Though 
Separate Schools continue to he recognized and aided holh liy the City and the Province, the ICducational System of Ontario 
is, in the main, unse<tariaii, and the Piililic Schools at least are free. The chief source of the school maintenance is local 
taxation, aided liy (iovernnient grants from the public chest, supplemented, in a small measure, by some unexpended balance 
from the Clergy Reserves I'uiid. The total annual expenditure for school purposes throughout Ontario is said to amount to 
34 jier cent, of all the taxes collected upon the assessable property of the Province. Submitting to this enormous annual public

burden, it ■.iiinot he sai<l tli.it Ontario is indifferent, or lacking in public spirit, in seeking the cnliglUenincnt of lur people. 
Her schools arc essentially popular institutions, organized and sustained for the education not of anv privili'ged order or class, 
but of the masses. They are open to the children alike of the most we.dthy and the most humble home. 

The Public .School System of the Province dates from llie year 1816, when the Legislature of L'pper Canada passed a 
Common or ICIementary School Law, and appropriated /^5,ooo sterling -a like sum to be granted annually for the mainten- 
ance of the .schools. Six years later, a Hoard of Education for the Province was established, which also for a time had un<ler 
its supervision the Royal (irammar S<hools, for which provision had been made bv grants of the public domain when the 
Pro\ince w,.s founded. It was not, however, until after the Cnion, in 1841. that eliicieiit provision was made throughout the 
Province for national educuion. In 1844, a further impetus was given to the movement by the appointment of the Rev. Dr. 
ICgerton Ryerson to the i hief superinteiulency, and a .s<hool system was founded of an e( lectic character, combining the best 
features of the educational system in vogue in New Kngland and the Old World. Since that period the system then inaugurated 
has made great strides, and ti -day there are close upon 6,000 sihoo] houses in the Province, emploving over 7,000 teachers, 
with a registered school population of nearly half a million, liesides the Public .Schools, the Province maintains 115 High 
Schools, of which twenty-six are Collegiate Institutes, employing over 400 highly-i|ualit"ied teachers, with a registered attendanie 
of nearly 18,000 pu|)ils. I'hese High .Schools provide an advanced education in the Knglish branches, and a classiial course

was liorn of Highland Sidltish parentage al Stewart field, .\rgyleshire, and when quite young came with his parents to Canada.

.Model School, while taking his undergraduale course at the University of 'Toronto. 
Throughout ihe latter course, Mr. Mac.Murciiy was a lirst-elass honour man in 
inathematics, ICnglish, Trench, and the Sciences, and graduated with honours and 
a medal. ( )n graduating, he devoted himself lo his life-work as an educator, his 
high academic standing, ability as a teacher, and sterling character, serving him in 
good stead. In iiSjS, he w..s appointed mathematical master at the 'Toronto

Rectorship. .\s the head, for now nearly twenty years, of this excellent institution, 
Mr. MacMunhy has not only earned for it a high and honouralile repute, hut has 
lieeii able to turn out thousands of young men who, in numberless walks of life, 
have made or are making their mark in the Dominion. ' lis enthusiastic interest 
in his profession is shown also in his able editorshio of the Canada Ediuaiioiial

commercial walks of life. Its proprietors are Messrs. Thomas

and ex|)erienced accountant, liotli men are experts in their several 
departments of phonography and penmanship, and are thoroughly

busy days, our chiefs of commerce are too much oc( upieil in 
their ventures to have time for the training of " raw material " in 
their 1 lerkships, and the yoimg man who would set out favourably 
in life is more likely to be succtsshil if, before entering an office, 
he spent a session or tv.o in a Uusiness College. The Canadian

a department of school work which we would like to see more

rational means of obtaining and transmitting useful kncwiedge. On this subject we recommend the reader to |H;ruse the latf

AKI', like litiralUR-, is still in its iiifniu v in ('aii.ula. Our artists, liowcvir, have made a beginning, anil no little of their 
wnrk is (Teililal)le tiillieni, parliciilarly in the less .imbitimis field of waterioldur painting. There is, naturally as yet, a 
^ iiianifesi lack of originality and ol' ell'ort to fdiiiid a distinclively ( 'anailian School ol .\rl. W ork in oils is lor the must 
part <rudi',and «here it has merit il too IreinieiitK reminds one olC )ld World models. Our best native pirtures indicate 
that lioth the eye and the li.ind of ( 'an.idi.ui p.iinters have lieen trained in l-^ngland or on the Continent, and though they show 
cultivated taste and more (jr less of paiii,-.taking effort. tlie\ l.ick originality of design and that true art power to grasp and execute 
a good native suliject. In water colours, _ '-"Hm 

Canadian artists are not open so nuich to 
this charge ; though even in this department 
there is a tendency to draw inspiration, not 
from N.iture, liut from Old World models, 
and |iarlicularly Irom the Impressionist 
School of h'rance. This, perhaps, is a phase 
of art life in Canada through which it has 
to pass liefore it rises to the higher region of 
original and < reative work. Increased study, 
less lonvi'iilional and more original treat 
ment, and a greater deteriniiialion to go 
directly lo Nature for sulijei ts lor the brush 
and for the inspiration for their adeipiate 
execution, will doubtless cause these defects 
in time to disappear. .\ greater measure of 
competent art critici.Mii will also be helpful 
in improving the work of our native artists. 
with a more liberal encouragement of art by 
the well to do <lasses in the c (luntry. With 
the wealth and variety of natural beauty in 
( 'anada, the picturesc|ueliess of some aspects 
of its life, especially in Irencli Canada and .imong the Indians and half breeds on the great |)lains of the West, there is no 
nasoii why the v.Drk of our artists should be commonplace or lacking in originality and local colour. Historical subjects, 
particularly in the l-'rencli regime, abound, which it can hardly be said ha\e as yet been touched. Incidents in the life of the 
settler ar.d pioneer furnish many themes for trealmelU. while the woods and waters of the country supply unlimited material for 
the dell handling of the skilled artist. Canadian sports, and many of the outdoor industries such as lumbering, fishing, lish- 
drying and canning, running rapiils in a i anoe, and numerous agricultural operations, lend themselves lo art treatment ; while 
art education is beioming increasingly necessary in the more skilled artisan pursuits, in the factories and workshops. 

I.ixal art assoi iations in some of I'le chief cities of the older I'roviiKOS have iieeii in existence for a number of years and 
have done much to idiicate taste in tile fine arts. The Royal ( 'anadian .\cadeiny. founded al ( )ttawa, in iS.So, by Lord l.orne, 
has also given a great impetus lo .\rt in Canada. In 'Toronto, private enter|)rise li.is supplied the city with an excellent Callery 
of .\rt, ai lessible and well-lighleil. Here loan exhibitions of paintings, engravings, cerainiis and other works of art, are period- 
ically held, besides the attractive exhibitions of the permanent collection. In the I'rovinceof Ontario, a local Society of .\rtists 
was founded a number of years ago and has done mudi to educate the public taste and evoke an intere.st in Art, which hitherto 
had nothing but the annual exhibitions al Ihe .\gri<iiltural I'airs upon which to feed. Though this Society has done much to 
raise the stanilard of excelleme among local arlisis, and, in its art rooms and annual exhibitions, to furnish the means of bring- 
ing art productions before the public, the limiteil wealth of the lomimmity h.is failed to givi' the Society that measure of support 
needful for its active inainlenance. Nor has it been able, with the aid of a small (lovernment grant, to keep out of debt. Its 
financial management of recent years has also been unfortimale. Tor a number of years the Ontario Society of .\rtists 
maintained for the use of its lucinbers and such pupils as had a desire to study .\rl, classes for model and life drawing and

lie done in Tornnlo lor An. 



The i)ro(;ress oltlie art of Misic in 'I'Dronto during the past twenty years has been connnensurate with the material 
growth of the city. 'I'wiiuy years ago, there was not a single choral or orchestial socielv in evistence, the 'roronto Musical 
Union, formed l)y Mr. John Carter, in iSdio, having died for want of support. One or two perforin.nices of oper.i and an 
occasional concert constituted the artistic eihicational amusement of the niusic,\l pulilic. Mow great an advance has since been 
made may he best appreciated by calling to mind that there are now in active oper.Uion two associations for the production of 

oratorios and other works reipiiring both 
chorus and orchestra, I'he i'hilharmonii- and 
( horal Societies ; two orchestral societies, the 
Toronto Symphony Ori hestra, and the 'I'or- 
rington Orchestra, and two societies for the 
practice of unacconipanied part-songs, the 
'I'oronlo \'ocal Society and the llaslam \iical 
Soiicty. There are now, moreover, three 
thcalrc-. an<l several |iublic halls, at which 
music.il enlcrlaiiunenls are often ' given. 
While in 1S70 a proiluction of opera was a 
rare occ urrem c, we fmd that during the sea- 
s{in i.s,S()()o, no fewer than fifty si\ operatic 
performances were given, while the mnnber 
of different operas presented was twenty-six. 
.\mong the l)rii- dramas put on the Toronto 
stage within the past five yc.irs then' m.iy be 
mentioned as specially worthy of note, W ag- 
iier's •■ Tlying Dutchman" and " Lohengrin," 
< loldiii.irk's " (Juecii of Sheli.i," .Meycrbei'r's 
"l.es Huguenots," and Rossini's "William 
Tell." It must not lie forgotten, too, that of 
late ye.irs few artists of renown who have 
visited the L'niled Slates ha\c omi'.led lo 
appear in the cil\. Still another leaturc ol 
recent years has been the foundation and 
development of two large teaching institu- 
tions, the Conservatory of .Music and the 
College of .Music, I'onducted on the plan 
found so successful by the Musical 'Training 
Schools of Tairope. 

The event which perhaps may be 
considered the most eonsiiicuous l.indm.uk 
on the road of progress w.is the .Musical 
I'eslival of i.SSfi, under the direction of Mr. 
T'. II. Torriiigloii, The forces pi, iced under 
the b.ilon of the icnductor consisled of a 
chorus of one V iiisand singers .ind an' 
on liestiM of one hundred meinbcrs. The 

,,,,,. .,..,. ,. principal works given were Ciounod's trilogy,

".Mors et \'ila," and llindeTs "Israel in 

ICg\|)t." 'i'he festiv.il was a great success and brought \ isitors to the i ity from all parts of the country. The date of the second 

festival has not as yet been decided upon, but no doubt when it takes place the result will show that Toronto ha-- m.ide anoiher 

important stride in the development of niusi< . 

Though hut a reet ot a<'(|uisition to Canada, Mr. Hamilton MacCarlhy has already by the skilful use of his i hisel broughl 

credit to the land of his adoption and added many beauties of art to our national treasines. .Mr. llamillon C. T. I'. Mae-

Street Methodist Churih, and there estahlished several orchestral and vocal 
societies, fie was also organist of the Jesuits' Church at the evening services, and 
profes.sor of the violin at the Jesuits' College. In iHfiy, he was engaged hy .Mr. 
I'. S. (lilmorc to form a Canadian contingent of the great Orchestra for the first 
I'eace Jubilee held in lioston ; was one of the solo organists who gave recitals upon 
the grand organ in the lioston Music Hall, and also took part in the first concert. 
Shortly aher the Jubilee, he ac<eptcd the position of organist of King's Chapel, 
r.oston, which he hekl for four years, and then became one of the regular solo 

organists at the .Music Hall, and at the \ew laigland Conservatory of .Music, at which institution he was one of the professional 

staff of teachers. While in lioston, he was conductor of many iuusieal societies, and one of the first violins of the Harvard 

Symphony Orchestra, Handel and Haydn Society's h'estivai and Oratorio Concerts, and in the ICnglish, Cerman and Italian

rington was induced to come to 'I'oronto. being ollered the positions of organist and director of the choir at the Metropolitan 

Church, and of conductor of the 'roronto Philharmonic Society. In both these positions he has laboured incessantly lor the 

musical cause. .\t the Metropolitan Church he organized and maintained a volunteer choir of from sixty to eighty voices, in 

which a l.irge number of choir leaders, solo vocalists, and organists holding prominent positiims in Canada have been trained. 

The standard of music set up by Mr. 'rorringlon has been ihal of the most eminent church composers, and the inHuence thus 

exerted has been an important factor in 

establishing a correct taste fiir good < luirch 

music in Toronto. I'he field of Mr. I'or 

rington's labours outside his church work 

has been largely in <-onnection with the 

Philharinoni<- Society, through which 

medium, the standard oratorios, < antatas, 

miscellaneous vocal and instrumental 

works of the great composers have been 

studied and introduced to the i'oronto 

public, .\uioiig the most celebrated of 

these are "ICIijah" ('iw'.; times), "Messiah " 

(six times). " Redemption " (twice), and 

".Mors cl \'ita." Ciounod; "Rose of 

Sharon," Mackenzie: ".Spectre's Hride. ' 

Dvorak; " Ooldeii Legend," Sallixan ; 

" .\nninius," liruch. anil selections from 

the grand Wagner operas, etc.. etc. The 

result of .Mr. 'I'orrington's work was 

manifested at the Toronto Musical lesti- 

val held in June, 1.SS6. at the Caledonian 

Rink. Not the least amongst Mr. Tor 

rington's elTorts have been the steps he 

has taken to establish an effective local

I'rok'ssor I. V. Davis was liorn at Oakville, in the year iS^^s. Alter 

having received a lilieial education he removed to Toronto, in i<S55, since which 

time his name has liecome lainous in eoiineetion with the art of ilancing. 

Professor Davis is the author of "The Modern Dance Tutor," which has had a 

large eireulation. lie is the originator of a numlier of popular dances, including 

the lersev Ripple, I.e llronco, Thireka, (lavotte Lancers and others. He has 

invented a method liv which the aei|uisition of new dances is greatly simplified. 

Professor I )avis is a memlier of the .National .Xssocialion of 'Teachers of I )aiicing 

of the United Slates and Canada. The fancy dances composed liy hini for the 

recent Kermesses received very favouralile comment. Instruction in instrumental 

music and calisthenics, as well as dancing, is given liy Professor Davis, at his 

residence, on Wilton .\veiiue. 

With all thai has lu'cn said of music and musicians, the confession, we 

fear, miisl lie made that 'Toronto is not distinctively a musical city. The masses 

perhaps are more fond of sport. N'el Toronto possesses twci good military hands and some excellent musical conductors, with 

more than average material for park and island instrumental c mic erts. I'ew out-door entertainments kir the people are m<ire 

worthy of encouragement than these summer hand c (ineerts on the island and in the city parks. In attracting the masses to 

them, they not only afford innocent delights, liul are potent counter attractions to the sensational drama and the saloon.

In ( '.inad.i theri- ,iie, in ihc l-aiglish sense, not in, my gre.it houses ,iiul no great 
territorial families. In the .New World democracy reigns, and its I'ommunitics 
are little accustomed to l)e dominated by the soci.il inlhieiiies of a landed gentry 
or of a single ruling house. .\s wt-.ilth increase-, there will no doubt coine into 
the siM-ial svsteili lords of many acres .iiid holders of cMcusive landed estate^. In 
time we may also look for large addition-- to the i.iiiks of iiu-n of (oinpeti-ncc and 
liisiire, and see arise the great city mansion ,iiul, here and there in the kind, the 
line property of the country gentleman. In ih ■ city's suburbs we have, already, 
not ,1 few handsome residences, and no lack of eligible sites on which to build 
more. Some of the old family homesteads are also (u-casionally coming into the 
m.irket, within tolerablv easv reach ofthecitv, and these, with their often pictiiresiiue 
sites, are desirable acciuisilioiis for moderni/ing and making into an eiijov.ible

liidc of the industries of Toronto ram 
it honour, aiul mark with ilistinciivc 
cmpliasis the transformation wliicli luis 
come over the lity from the savagery of its early 
wilds. It lias been often said, that we of this 
generation live in an ago of artilieial wants ; hut 
this is h.irdly true of the people of Toronto, if 
our wants are wholly met liy the mamifaitures 
of the native market. In the main, it is utility 
rather than ornament that employs the labour 
of the loial artisan and craftsman. Our want.s, 
of course, have gone beyond those of the savage, 
.iiul even beyond the wants of the early settler. 
Hut this is merely to say that we, as a people, 
have advaiiceil with the civili/alion of the lime, 
and have sought to share the comforts and to 
utilize the machinery with which science and 
invention have endoweil our modern age. At 
an eariier period, wood and the products of 
wood used to be sufiii'ient for our needs. If 
we have gone beyond that era of simplicity, it 
does not follow that we have become artilieial. 
It means merelv that we are economizing the 

, 111' 1 1 LaKKVIEH HorEl, I'ARLIA.MF.NT STRRF.r. 

materials which are now becoming scarce, and 

making use (>f those which are more durable and better adapted for our wants. It is marvellous the extent to which the metals 
are now fade use of in almost every branch of manufacture ; and Science is daily placing its triumphs at the service of man, 

to enlarge the range of his achievement, as 
well as adding to the hum of industrv. Here 
toil and skill are happily put to beneficent 
uses. It is not in the making of rilles, can- 
non, ironclads, or other agents of destruc- 
tion, that industry is here employed ; but 
rather in the useful arts and the lile.ssed 
servi<e of peace. Much is also locally being 
manufactured which we used to imiiort. In 
this respect we have become more enter- 
prising as well as more self sul'ticing. AVo 
no'v build our own locomotives, cars and 
steamships ; m.mufacture all the material for 
our bridges anil bouses ; and even forge and 
fashion the ma< hiiiery for turning out ma- 
chinery. In this latter regard, it is to be 
feared, the saying is true, that the tool some- 
times overshadows the wo k'liaii. It is 
noticeable that much of our machinery re- 
flects .\meri<an, rather than Ilritish, inlluence. 
Here our craftsmen have shown themselves 
adepts at adaptation. Perhaps, however,

whole peace-loving and just. Here legislation ' ^ 

and humane sentiment have been actively on 

the side of labour. This the workman no 

doubt sees, and he is fair enough to 

acknowledge that compared with Old World 

experiences, industry in Toronto is pursued 

under good auspices. 

The I'olson Iron Works Company 

(Limited), of Toronto and Owen Sound, was 

founded in iS86, by .Messrs. William I'olson 

\' .Son, for the Jiianufacture of marine engines. 

boilers, steamboats, yachts, launches, and 

steam-ferries, and has since grown to mam 

moth proportions, and achieved some notable 

successes in the development of this now 

well-endowed and enterprising incorporated 

Company. The Company has its engine and 

boiler works, with machinery of the most 

recent device and capable of turning out the 

largest class of work, at Ksplanade .Street, in .Sikf.i. Stea.mshu' -'Mam roii,\,' IScii.r liv tmk I'oi.son Ikon Wouk^ Comianv. 

this city. Here are constructed, besides every variety of vertical, hoisting and marine engines, and boilers (.f all descriptions, the 

famous " Mrown .\iitoniatic ICngine,' largely used in the chief cities of Canada, and of which the Montreal i:ieclric Light Co. 

alone have ten in use. The Company have also at Owen .Sound perhaps the most thoroughly ei|ui|iped ship-building works on 

the Continent, and e(|ual to any of s'-iiilar capacity on the Clyde. They are also the owners of the Owen Sound Dry Dock, 

which is of siilhcient capacity to lloat the largest vessels on om' inland seas. .\l Owen Sound the Company conduct an industry 

of the first magnitude in the Dominion, and have turned out from their yards some of the finest steel vessels afloat on Canadian 

waters. Here, from the works of the 1' ilion Co., was launchetl in May, r 889, for the Canadian Pacific RailwayCo., the splendid 

steel steamship Afaiiitoha, which had Iv / ; constructed for its owners within the remarkably short period of nine months. T/if 

Maiiiloba, at the time of her completion, uas the largest vessel on fresh water, being 305 feet long, ,vS feet beam, and drawing 

13 feet. So satisfied wc'e the officials of the 
C. 1'. R'y Co. with the results of the work on 
The Afanito/ia, that before she was completed 
they awarded a second contract to the I'olson 
Iron Wo-ks Co., for the construction of a 
steel car-ferry, 295 feet long anil 73 feet beam, 
for the conveyance of cars across the Detroit 
River from Windsor to Delroii. Work on 
this steam ferry was begmi in June, i.SScj, and 
she was plving on the Detroit River in the 
following Spring. The engines and boilers 
tor this ship were built at the works of the 
Company at 'I'oronto. ami are the largest of 
the'r kind ever built in Canada. The boilers, 
which are \\ feet, 3 inches in di.niieter. 
weighed 37 tons each, and were the largest 
ever carried by rail on this Continent. A 
third contract has now also been completed, 
in a steel steamship for the I'.irry Sound 
Lumber Co. I'he vessel. The StX'/i'i, is J15 
feet long, with J4 feet beam, and is designed 
to carry general freight on the lakes. She is 
propelled by triple expansion engines, and is 
of a class of vessels which, thanks to the 
enterprise of the I'olson Comjwny, must 
some day cover the waters of our inland .seas,

railroads now being built in the Xorth- 

W'esl, were made by the Ontario liolt Company. In the rolling mills adjoining the liolt Works, about two hundred men are 

em|)loyed day and night, making in all from .seven hundred to one thousand men and boys who find work in this immense industry. 

With sue h enter]irises as this in our iniilst, Canada may fairly claim a share in the industries that mark our epoch as an iron age. 
The Dominion Saw and Lead Works, and m-nal warehouse, owned and operated i)y Messrs. James Robertson S: Co., 

was established twenty-live years ago, by Mr. James Robertson, of .Montreal. There are branches in Montreal, Winnipeg, St. 

John, and liallimore, besides the Toronto factory, which is at 253-371 King Street West. The Company does a large business 

in the manufacture of lead pipe, shot and .saws. They are the most extensive grinders of white lead and colours in the 

Dominion, and are extensive importers of heavy metal goods. The firm is an enterprising an<l successful one and conducts a 

large and important indus-

Mr. James Morrison, lirass

Toroiilo, in iSf)4, with a very limited 
capital. I lis liiisiness spread, howi'ver, 
rapidly, and he was compelled t(i move 
into larger premises from time to time, 
till Iv tinally took iiossession, in 1X7J, 
ol his present factory on Ailelaide 
Street West. In addition to brass 
lomuling and fmishing, .Mr. .Morrison 
does a large husiness in engineers, 
•team fitters, plumbers and gas-fitters' 
<iipplies. \arioiis additions have been 
niaile to the factory to meet the press- 
ing demands upon it. .\ four storey 
foundry was erected on I'earl Street, 
and show rooms and stirage rooms have 
been .idded. Mr. Mor ison has also 
a ciippersnnth's dep.ir.menl, where 
cojiper work for distillers, brewers, 

confectioners and |ihnnbers is manufa<tnred. It is shortly intended to remove this department to the new fictory in .Mimico, 

where new lines will be adtled. The firm employs 150 hands, and pays annually out in wages ovtr .$So,ooo.

ment to a large number of hands, besides a staff nf 

nie<hanical experts and experienced heating engineers. 

In iS.Si, this Company was awarded, at the Toronto 

Industrial ICxhibition, the Silver .Medal for their 

llconomy I'urnaees, the only premiimi given on that 

occasion, though all the other manufacturers were 

represented. I'he heaters manufactured by this firm 

arc the product of thirty years skill and thought given 

to the vital subject of . sanitary heating and ventilation. 

The Company are each year introducing improve 

ments, and have recently perfe( ted an entirely new- 
heater, designed for warming all manner of buildings, 

by a tombination of hot water and warm air. Three 

distinct classes of heaters are now m.ide by this 

t'oinpany, vi/. : the " Kconomy " Warm Air Kurnace, 

the " I'.eonomy " Combination Steam and Warm .\ir

secured for them the highest recognition in

im|)ortant manufacturing industry. That his services have been appreciated by his employers and associates, however, is 
attested by numerous valuable testimonials, accompanied by various illuminated addresses. Among the testimonials which he 
chiefly prizes are a gold watch, presented him by a former employer, Mr. James Morrison, and an illuminated address presented 
bv steamfitters and dealers in steamfitters' supi)lies in Canada and the United .States. 

The business carried on at the extensive premises, 24 Front Street West, of which we give interior and e.xterior views, 
was started by Mr. (ieorge I'". Hostwick in 1884, Opening an otifice in that year on 'Toronto .Street for the sale of Messrs. 
(loldie & McCulloch's safes, Mr. Hostwi( k 
was compelled by the rapid extension ol his 
business to remove to a warehouse on ( 'luirch 
Street, thence to the large building on King 
Street, adjoining Tlic Mail Olifice, and two 
years ago, to his jiresent premises. 'The 
business now embraces, besides the famous 
sales of theCalt firm, ajl kiiuls of commercial 
furniture ; bank and ollicc fittings : chunh, 
hall and opera seating ; school furniture, and 
various kinds of heavy iron work, Hy a 
careful .selection Mr. Hostwick has been able 
to guarantee that every article in his ware- 
house is the best of its kind, and certain to 
win approval for everything offered to his 
patrons.

extended. 

Mr. J. !•'. Maurice .Maefarlane, of 
Messrs. .Maefarlane, .MeKinlay vV Co., 
niamifactiirers of window shades, is the 
grandson of the late Hon. James I'Vrrier, 
member of the Dominion .Senate, and for 
many years Chairman of the Canadian 
Hoard of Directors of the (irand 'I'rimk 
Railway, and other public olViees. Mr. 
Maefarlane was born in Montreal, on the 
iSth of Se|)t., 1.S49, and was educated at 
the .Mcdill High .School. .After leaving 
school he entered commercial life in 
Montreal, and later on in Chicago. 
Returning to Montreal, he took a position 
in a prominent wholesale dry -goods house. 
In 1875, Mr. Maefarlane located in Wood- 
stock, Ontario, anil engaged in business 
on his own account, in which he continued 
five years. When the N. 1'. was inaugurated he decided to en;'ai';e in manufacturing, and in 1880, settled in Toronto, and 
entered upon his present undertaking. The firm of Maefarlane, AlcRinlay & Co. now turn out .ibotit 10,000 yards per week t)f 
painted shade cloth, which leave the factory in three several styles either in pairs artistically decorated, finished with fringes or 
laces, or in plain tints. Mr. Mai farlane is a Royal .\rch Mason, and a member of the Royal Canadian \acht (,'lub. Mr. .\. 
Keid .MeKinlay, who is associated with Mr. Maefarlane in business, is a native of Toronto, and was eilucated at Cpper 

Canada College. He was fi)r many years a 
member of the (,)iieen's Own Rilles; is a promi 
neiit Ma.son, and a member of the Koyal 
Arcanum. He is a successful man of business, 
and was connected with some of our largest 
wholesale dry-goods houses, and at one time 
interested with his father in the lumber trade. 
Only in recent years has the attempt 
)cen made in Canada to utilize photography, 
in what is called a process-picture, for book 
illustration. In 1888, The (^inadian I'hoto- 
ICngraving liureau wasestabli.shed, at 20,5 \'onge 
Street, in this city, for that purpose, and began 
to supply the local demand which already 
existed for artistic halftone engravings. In 
addition to halftones for books and magazines, 
ine engravings are here made for newsp.iper and 
advertising purposes. .\ large proportion of the 
illustrations for "Toronto Old and New" were 
made at The Canadian I'hoto iMigraving liureau, 
and tell their own story. Mr. I. I'. .Moore, the 
senior proprietor, is a native of l.oiulon, lang- 
uid, where he was born in 1863. In 1871, he 
came to Canada. In 1879, he removed to the 
United States, and after experimenting in Art 
methods, he returned to Ontario, where he was 
attached to the CiH/> Printing and Publishing 
<!()., as foreman of the .Art department. He 
reliiKiuished that position to inaugurate the 
)resent enter|)rise. Mr. J. Alexander, Jr., of 
the firm, is a son of the |wstor of the Dovercourt

TOkON rO'S (inancial resourc's, in urcat measure, account lor the city's eniincnie in Iraile and coniinerie. 'I'liey are, 
as it were, llie life lilood of her industry, and impart liealtli as well as vigour to her frame. It is uixin llie hanks and 
monetary institutions of a town, with the organization of creiht which they control, as well as upon the enterprise and 
energy of its commeriial and industrial <lasses, that the edifice of prosperity is huilt up. Toronto divides with 
.\loiureal tlie repute of being at once the seal and the nerve-centre of Canadian finance. In these two cities are the hea<l- 
((uarlers of our great Hanks, with a total assets, available in the main for the transactions of Connnerce, of something like two 
hundred millions of dollar^ 'I'heir combined paid-up capital is not far short of a fourth of this amount. 'I'heir financial 
position and management are such as to extort admiration, and give at the same time the amplest security to the investing and 
borrowing |)ublic. The inteit'st of both these classes is further protected by the National ('lovernmenl, in the wise and safe 
provisions of the Hanking .\ct, and in the security it exacts before an institution can open its doors for business. The chief 
banking institutions having their headcpiarters 
in the city are the Commerce, 'I'oronto, Im- 
perial, Dominion, Ontario, .Standard, and 
Traders' Hanks ; while those having branches 
here are the Montreal, liritish. Merchants', 
(^•uebec, Cnion, Molsons and Hamilton 
Hanks. To these is about to be added, by 
the enterprise of Mr. (\. \V. N'arker, one of 
our ablest and best known bankers, the \'ork 
County Hank, an institution which, it may 
safely be predicted, will a.ld materially to 
Toronto's legitimate banking facilities and to 
the renown which existing institutions have 
brought her. I'liblic convenience is further 
served by the Savings Hanks, which of recent 
years have become a useful adjunct to many 
of the chartered banks, by the I'o.st Otiice 
and Covernment Savings Hanks, and by the 
Loan, Savings and Investment ( ompanies 
doing business in the city. The facilities of 
these institutions are great, and public confi- 
• lence in them is well grounded. Of Loan 
and Investment Companies, there are now 
twenty-five, having their head(|uarters in Tor- 
onto, with a total assets of over sixty-three 
millions. Their paid capital amounts to twenty-three millions, and they place fiirty millions more, raised on debenture or on 
deposit, at ;he financial service of the public. There is little need to say much here in commendation of those beneficent 
enterprises, which mark the provident iharacter and the humanity of the age, the Life, Lire and Marine Insurance Companies, 
In their operations, aside from their practical benefit, they remove from the mind of the wage-earner, and all ranks of toil, a 
load of anxiety which would in many iistances become an intolerable burden. The following pages present to the reader some 
of these institutions, as well as those connected with finance, whose operations are part of the multiform features of Toronto's 
cosmopolitan trade. 

Of late years, architecture has done great things fi)r financial Toronto. What it has done for two or three of our banks 
it has doiu' and is doing for several of our great insurance otVices. 'Though not imposing in appearan<e, the Toronto Hranch 
of the Hank of Montreal is, within and without, one of the most artisti( buildings in the city. Substantial, as well as attractive, 
are the edifices recently erected fiir the Standard Hank and the 'Traders' Hank. 'The branch of the (^)uebec Hank, if we <:an 
say no more, has at least the advantage of a good site. Not only is the site gooil, but imposing is tlie new home of the 
Canadian Hank of Commerce. 'The building is, In style, that of the modernized Italian Renaissance, and its whole architectural

composition is ;il once dij^iiilkd and pleasing. It is liiiilt of a deep brown sandstone, its massiveness lieing relieved hy 
delicate chisel work and other tasteful ornamentation, as well as liy an abundance of window-light. It has a double fa<;ade 
and a symmetrical corner tower with a frontage both on King and on Jordan .• treets. The interior is spacious and the 
decorations are rich and effi-ctive. .Suites of rooms open out of the main flour, and an entresol, artistically designed, affords 
further ai-comniodalion for the elegantly furnished parlours of the ofHcers of the Hank. .Massive and elabor.iiely contrived 
vaults with ample storage facilities are among the neces.sary ap|)urtenances of the institution, together with a series of lavatories 
and other well-appointed ollices. The Bank of Conimerce has a history which dates l)ack to the era of Confederation, when 
it was foiMided, mainly through the instrumentality of the late Senator Mc.Master, and it has had on its directorate many of the 
most substantial and enterprising of 'I'oronlo's chiefs of commerce. It had originally a capital of one million dollars, with six 
branches in the chief cities and towns of the Province. To-day, it has a paid-up capital of six millions, with a rest of 
$800,000, and thirty-eight branches, in addition to five local agencies in different sections of the city. It has also branches in 
Montreal and New Vork, and agents and correspondents in the chief money mirts of the world, upon whom its letters of 
credit and bills of exchange are drawn. The institution has been of the greatest service to the industrial and commercial 
interests of Toronto, and its present management justly merits the confidence of all classes of the community. Its stock is 
(|iioted at \2(\, and it usually pays an eight per cent, annual dividend. It has a strong Directorate, and possesses in .Mr. 1!. V.. 
Walker, the (leneral .Manager, a banker of great ability and extensive experience. The following compose the Hoard and 
ofticers of the liank ; (ieorge A. Cox, President; John I. Davidson, \'ice-l'residenl ; James Crathern, W. li. Hamilton, John 
lloskin, (^).C., I,I,.I)., Robert Kilgour, Matthew I.eggatl, and (ieorge Taylor, Directors ; li. V.. Walker, (ieneral Manager ; J. 
H. riummer, Assistant (Ieneral .Manager ; A. II. Ireland, Inspector ; (1. de C. O'Crady, .\ssistant Inspector. 

The Hank of Toronto has for more ,^ 
than a generation been one of the most use <(B** 

ful, as well as stable and representative, of ff , _. ' 

the monetary institutions of the city. Its • >■ 

charter dales back to the year 1H55 ; but its 
authorized capital, of two millions, was not 
wholly issued or paid up until twenty years 
afterwards. Hesides this capital, the liank 
has by uniforndy good management accumu- 
lated a rest of seventy-live per cent, of its 
paid-up stock. .\t its last general meeting, 
the Hank added $100,000 to its total rest of 
$1,500,000, besides paying a half-yearly 
dividend of five per cent, and carrying a 
substantial sum to the credit of its profit and 
loss account. The net profits of the last 
financial year were not far from $500,000; 
and its tcit;il assets were in the neighbourhood 
of eleven and one-half millions. Its stock 
is now cpioted at izi. Hesides its Mead 
Offices in Toronto, the Hank has Hranches 
at .Montreal, London, Out., Harrie, Hroc k- 
ville, Cobourg, Collingwood, Cianaiioc|iie, 
Peterborough, Petrolia, Port Hope, and St. 
Catharines. It has also agencies in New 
N'ork, and in London, Kngland. The fine |)remises of the Hank in I'oronto (see illustration on i)age 47), were erected in 1H62. 
Its management has fo. a long series of years been exceptionally good, and it naturally enjoys a most excellent financial reputa- 
tion. Its administration has always been wi.sel; conservative, though it is an institution which has extended to the exjianding 
commerce of the city such facilities as legitimate expansion seemed to need and its large resources could well supply. In its 
cashier, .Mr. Duncan Coiilsc.c, the Hank of Toronto has had fi)r many years an ofiicer of acknowledged ability, experience and 
sagacity ; and it |)osses.ses a Directorate composed of men of sound judgment and large wealth. 'The Directors for the present 
year are .Mr. ( Ieorge Cooderham, President ; Mr. Wm. H. Heatty, Vice-President; and Messrs. A. 'T. Inilton, Henry Covert, 
John Leys, Henry Cawthra, and W. (i. (iooderham. Mr. Hugh Leach is .A.ssistant Cashier, and Mr. J. Henderson, Inspector. 

'The Imperial Hank of Canada was incor|)orated by an Act of the Dominion Parliament, in 1874, and opened its doors 
for business on the ist of .March, 1875. Its first Hoard of Directors were Messrs. H. S. Howland (late \'ice- President 
Canadian Hank of Commerce), W'm. Ramsay, John Smith, Patrick Hughes, Robert Carrie, 'T. R. Wadsworth, and John I'isken. 
Mr. I). R. Wilkie, formerly Manager of the Hranch of the (Jucbec Hank in Toronto, was apiioiiited Cashier. In 1S75, authority 
was obtained from Pariiament fiir the amalgamation of the Niagara District Hank with the Imperial, which was c-onsummated 
in the same year. Hy this arrangement the Hoard was strengthened by the accpiisition of Mr. 'T. R. Merritt and the late Hon. 
Senator Henson, the former being the President, and the latter the Vice-President, of the well-known St. Catharines' institution. 
Since then, the Hunk has succeeded beyond the expectations of its founders, and, from a comparative!) >.iiall institution, has

The Home Savings\- Loan Company 
(Limited), of which the Hon. Senator Trank 
Smith is President, and .Mr. James Mason 
(.Major of the Roval (ircnadiers) is Manager, 
grew out of the 'Toronto Savings liank, which 
was established in 1S54, under the authority 
of .Acts 4 and 5 \'w. This institution proved a most usei'iil one to the farmers, and to the working classes of the 1 at a time 
when savings banks were either unknown or few in number, for it gave an incentive to thrift and led the wageeat r to make 
provident provision for ill-health or old age. 'The .Act under which savings banks were originally established in C.' ..da having 
been repealed, it was considered desirable lo continue the business of the 'Toronto Savings liank, and to a(T<rd .-"id maintain 
opportunities for its beneficent working. 'The Home .Savings &.• Loan Company (Limited) was therefore incorporated, and in 
1S78 an agreement was entered into between the two institutions, and sanctioned by .Act of the Dominion Parliament, whereby 
the business of the Savings Bank was taken over by the new Company. Hy the same agreement, a sum representing the surplus 
profits of the Savings liank, amounting to $20,000, was paid by the Companv, and this sum, bv the terms of the agreement and 
.\ct, is held as the 'Toronto Sa\ings liank (Charitable 'Trust, and controlled bv 'Trustees appointed under the same .Ait, and 
having no connection with the Company. The yearly earnings of this 'Trust are divided among some of the charitable institu- 
tions of the city. 'The former President and N'ice-President of the Savings liank Hon. Frank Smith and .Mr. ICugene O'Keefe 
— are and have been since its organiration the President and Vice-President of the Home Savings iS; Loan Company. 'The

three ipiarters. The investments of the ( 'ompany are restricted to debentures, morl- 
g.iges. and such other securities as are I'onsidered by the (iovcrnmenl of a proper 
character for such an institution. 

Mr. James Mason, .Major of the Roy.il (iren.idiers, and the popular manager of 
llie Home .Savings and Loan Company (Limited), was born of Irish parentage in the 
City of Toronto, August 25th, iS^. .\fter receiving his education at private schools, 
and at the Toronto .Model School, where he was head boy, he entered the olVue of 
the late Mr. Walter Mackenzie, Clerk of the C'ounty Court, and remained there several 
years. .Mr. .Mason intended to study surveying and civil engineering, but owing to 
the discouraging prospi'cts of the profession in his youth, his attention was turned to 
banki'.g. laitering the employment of the Toronto Savings liank in iSfifi, he was 
appointed assistant manager in 1X72, and manager in the following year. He 
remained in that position till the business was taken over, in i<S7(), by the Home 
Savings \- Loan Company, and has since continued to be manager of the new and 
now nourishing institiUion. The Home Savings \- Loan Company, whose offices 
arc at 7S Church St., and of which the Hon. Senat<;r T'rank Smith is President, has an 
authorized capital of $j, 000,000. It enjoys an excellent reputation as one of the 
most useful, as well as sound, financial institutions in the city. Under Mr. Mason's 
able and prudent management, it has of recent years added largely to the volume of its 

business. Mr. .Mason finds til ' to fulfil the active and patriotic duties of a citiz.en. He was I )irector for several years of the Toronto 
.Mechanics' Institute and its last I'lesident when the institution was merged into the h'ree l'ubli<- Library. In the founding of the 

latter he look a warm interest as a member of the Hoard of Trustees and served as its chairman. On his retirement he was 

presented with a handsome address. He was also one of the promoters of the .\tlien;viun Club and its first President. .\ 

taste for military life led .Mr. Mason, early in the sixties, to join the (Jiieeii's Own killes. As a passed cadet of the .Military 

School, he was appointed to a commission in the corps, the organization of which was untlertaken at the time of the I'enian 

Raid, but was abandoned at its suppression. In iS.Sj, he was appointed to the e<immand of one of the two companies which 

were then added to the Royal (irenadiers. During the Xorth West Rebellion, he served as Captain of No. 2 Service (Company 

of his Regiment, and was present at the action of T'ish (!reek, on which oicasion his Company, at his own reipiest, was the first 

to cross the Saskatchewan to cover the crossing of the remainder of the column, and to support the other half of Cienerai Mid- 

dleton's force then engaged with the rebels. Speaking of the feat then aii'oinplished, Cienerai .Middlelon thus reports : "'To 

fully appreciate the rapidity with which this was done, in spite of the difficulties which existed, the river must be seen ; wooded 

heights on each side, one hundred feet high 

- at bottom, large boulders encrusted in 

thick, sticky mud a fringe of huge blocks of 

ice (m e.ich side ; a wretche<l s<()w, carrying 

about sixty men at most, pulled with oars 

made with an axe, and a rapid current of 

about three or four miles an hour, were the 

obstacles to be surmounted by dint of deter- 
mination and anxiety to join with and aid 

their comrades." On reaching the scene of 

the fight and learning that the attempts to 

capture the position occupied by the rebels 

had failed. Captain .Mason volunteered with 

his Company to charge this point, but the 

Cicneral declined the offer, saying there were 

" too many valuable lives lost already.'' At 

the eng.igement at liatoche, No. 2 Company 

was one of those that gallantly led the attack, 

and here Captain Mason received a gunshot 

wound in his right side while .advancing on 

the rebel rifle-pit.s. The wound proved a 

severe one, and he suffered a long time from 

its effects. Mr. Mason, as an esteemed, 

useful and patriotic citizen, enjoys the respect 

of the community and the confidence of Cosi;rave's Urewerv, Quekn Strkkt West, Corner ok Niagara Strket.

.Mr. I. 1. Kenny. .Managing- ( 

Director of the Western .\ssuraiice 
(,'ompany, was born in London, I'.ng 
land, in the year 1X46. Coming to 
Canada with his parents when ipiite a 
lad, he was educated in Hamilton, and 
commenced his insurance career, at 
the age of eighteen, as a clerk in the 
agency office of Mr. Ceorge .\. Voung, 
the then representative of the Koyal 

for that district. .Mter four years thus spent, he was for a short time in the 
em|)loyment of the Can.ida Life .Assurance Company. Two years later he accepted 
a position on the staff of the Western Assuran<e (,'ompany, and for nineteen years 
he has remained in their ser\iee. I'roni clerk he rose to be agent at Toronto, 
Inspector, .Secretary and Managing- Director. The phenomenal progress of this 
Company, since he took charge in 1H80, is due in no small degree to .Mr. Kenny's 
skill and energy. 

The Confederation Life .\ssociation is one of the most substantial and 
successful of Can.idian Insurance Companies. It is a home company, doing 
business e.xclusively in ('an.ida, and was incorporated by the Dominion I'arliament 
in 1871, with a strong body of directors, under the presidency f)f the late .Sir Kraneis Mincks, K.C.M.Ci. In 1874, Sir W'ui. I'. 
Howl.ind, C.H., succeeded to the presidency, and has since held that position in the Company, aiding it largely with his iiwture 
experience and .sound judgment. The .Association has also had the benefit, for nearly twenty years, of the business ability and the 
wi.se counsels of a number of inlluential men, chiefly well-known residents of the city. I'rom the first, thanks in the main to 
the careful and capable .■idininistration of Mr. J. K. Macdonald, .Managing-Director, the Company has met with uni|ualified 
success. Its volume of current business has grown fr<mi an amount under two millions in 1873 to nearly eighteen millions in 
i88g, while its assets within the same period have ex|xiiuled from $1 13,293 to $2,894,502, or, including the capital of the 
institution, to $3,800,000. During the pitst year alone, the incrcise in tlie volume of insurance in force amounted to nearly a 
million ; while the increase in assets, available in part as policy-holders" profits, was not far from $350,000. Results so 
gratifying as these figures show, denote not only, as we have said, successful management, but the public confidence and 
favour which suct'essful management inspires. Something is also no doubt due to the liberal character of the Company's

.Mr. .Maleolm (libbs, Ixirn in 
(ilasgow, Scotland, .May i8th, 1^,57, 
was educated at (ilasgow University. 
Coming to Canada a young man, his 
interest in his adopted country did not 
make him forget his native land. .Mr. 
(libbs has been ideiitilied with all the Scotch societies in Toronto, and was Presi- 
dent of St. Andrew's Society, of which he is now the popular Manager. His name 
lias been intimately connected with the insurance and real estate business in 
I'oronto for man; years past. He has taken a dee)) interest in moral reforms, and 
".IS formerly President of the Temperance Reformation Society, and District Chief 
of the Independent Order of (iood Templars. He is a Pa.st Master of Rehoboam 
I odge, A. I''. \- .\. M., .\iiditor of Capital Lodge, A.O.U.W'., and an lixecutive Com- 
mitteeman of the hiw and Order League. Mr. Ciibbs has been Seiretary of the 
( 'aledonian Society. He is an active member of Lirvis .Street liaptist Church. 

Mr. Riihard W'ickins, insurance agent, is an laiglishnian, and was born 
.\ugiisl i.?lh, 1826. Coming to Canada while (piite young, animated by a desire to 
remain under the old Hag of the lam' of his birth, he received in this country an education specially designed to fit him for com- 
mercial life. His connection with the C'ommereial Union .\ssurance Company, of London, ICngland, for some years past has 
caused a large amount of Canadian insurance to go to that reliable Company. Mr. Wiekens takes an active interest in his 
fellow-countrymen whr) come to Cana<la, being a member of St. (ieorge's Society. His denominational connection is with the 
Methodist Church, of which he is a worthy and devoted meml)er. 

Mr. .Mfred W'ightman Smith is a native of I'oronto. He was born in this city in .September, 1847, when what is now the 
Metro])olis had scarcely more tiian emerged from its rural obscurity, .\fter receiving the rudiments of his education he became a 
student at Upper Canada College, and subsequently at the Toronto (irammar School. Mr. Smith is one of the best known of 
Toronto's insurance men. His connection with the Imperial Kire Insurance Company, and the British ICmpire Life Comixiny,

has drawn a great ileal of business to those organizations, lor some \i\irs Mr. Smith has l>ccii a imnihcr of the Toronto 
Board of Underwriters, of wliieh he has heen President since i.SSy. He is a inejniier of the ('hur<:h of iMv-land. 

Mr. Kyre Thuresson. J. I'., was horn of United Knii)ire Loyalist stock, at Picton, Prince Kdward County, .Xpril 17th, 
1831;. His education was imparted bv private tuition. During the SandfieldMacclonald adnn'nislration, Mr. 'Tluiresson was 
appointed one of the justices of the Peace for the South Riding of Wentworlh. I'rom 1850 till iSfio he operated extensive 
agricultural implements works at .\ncasler, which he relinquished to enter upon in c maiuifaiture of knitteil goods. The lirsl 
Canadian factory for the production of card clothing for wool and cotton carding machinery was established by Mr. Thurcsson, 
in 1866. After carrying this enterprise on for thirteen years, the worthy gentleman retired from active business. Since locating 
in 'Toronto he has invested largely and profitably in business and private property. He is a T'reemason, and a member of 
Macnab Lodge, Port Colborne. Mr. 'Thuresson, in politics, is a Liberal, and in religion, an I'^piscopalian. 

Tor the security of T'inancial Toronto, as 
well as for the maintenance of good order, the 
city is possessed of two organizations, of which 
it may well be proud, the Police T'orce and the 
Tire Urigade. The Police T'orce is composed 
of a very fine body of men, three hundred 
strong, well drilled, well set-up, and serviceably 
iniiformcd. Many of the men have served in 
the I!riti-.h .\riny, or in the Royal Irish Con 
slabulary, and in addition to being amenable to 
discipline have military instincts and possess a 
soldier's sense of diUy. 'Tlu'ir fme [jhysiipie and 
soldierly bearing are the subject of comment 
with visitors to the city, as well as among towns- 
people who see them as a body at drill or, 
occasionally, in some pageant on the street. 
Tliev are excellently commanded by l.t.-(!ol. 
IL J. (irasett. Chief Constable, a.i ex-arniy 
otHicer, and a singularly good administrator. 
( III. Cirasetl is erticienily aided by Deputy ( 'liiel 
Stuart, and by four Inspectors, .Messrs. .Stephen, 
Ward, lohnston and llreckenreid. besides the 
ordinary force, there is a small .Mounted Police 
Patrol, and an .Ambulance and Detective 
Corps, the latter inider Inspeitor Win. Stark. 
The government of the City Poli<e is vested in 
three Commissioners, the .Mayor for the time 
being, the Stipendiary .Magistrate, I t.-Col. (\. 'T. 
Denison, and His Honour, Judge Macdougall, 
of the (bounty Court. 

'Toronto's Fire Hrigaile vies in efticiency, 
and may we not say, in no objectionable sense, 
in the lust of manhood, with the city's other 
protecting arm, the Police Torce. The organi- 
zation is of cx<eptional importance to the vast 
and far reaching interests of the Proviniial 
Capital, and to it and its admirable system is the city indebted, daily and hourly, for its immunity from fire. Nothing 
could well lie more efficient than the electric alarm system now in force in 'I'oronto and the thoroughly organized staff, 
with its hook, ladder and hose equipment, at the several conveniently-situated lire stations. 'There are now in operation 
we believe over ,500 signal boxes throughout the city, and the rapidity of movement which the system has introiha ed and 
excites is most assuring to all interests at stake. 'The nund)er of street hydrants is well-nigh legion, and very ex<'e|itional 
are now the circimistances that will permit a fire within the city ''mils to get a headway and do much damage. The present 
Chief of the Brigade is .Mr. Richard .Vrdagh, with Mr. Thomas Craham as assistant. 'These act under the authority of the 
I'ire and (las Committee of the City Council, of whom .Mderman Bell is now Chairman. The Tire Brig.ade System has 
attained its present perfection as the result of a constant evolution whiih has been going steadily on for many years. To look 
back today to the old methods in use at fires in the city is to seem to look back on the days of the .\rk and the deluge. We 
have made a long stride from the era of the old hand engine and the barrel of water. 'The citizens would be ingrates it ihey 
forgot to whom they owe credit in a large measure, for the modernizing and present e(|uipmenl of the system now in vogue. 
'Two names, at least, claim to be mentioned as instrumental in bringing about the change, these are, the late Mr. janies .Ash- 
field, who was long Chief of the Tire Brigade, and ex-.AIderman James B. Boiistead, for many years Chairman of the Tire and 
(ias (Committee of the Council, and one of the most zealous, hard working and self-sacrificing of our City T'athers.

wiiti's Mr. .MoiUgdincry .Martin, in liis work on The liiilish C 
I'ariii ailjdiiiing anollirr, tlii' average lieinj,' 
one larni house in every three miles. The 
eity had then no liriek liouses, no tinned roofs, no 
l)lanked sidewalks ; the stumps of trees remained in 
the streets ; the site of the present (St. I.awrenee) 
market was an unhealthy Imn. 'I'liere were no hanks, 
no markets, no sewers; only a few stores, and siareely 
a s( hooner rrei|uenteil its wharves. Now (Mr. Martin 
wrote in 1S45), Toronto I'ontains ,^0,000 intelligent 
citizens ; rows of handsome hrick buildings, roofed 
with tin ; numerous places of worship ; splendiil shops 
or stores, with plate glass windows ; ga.s-lil and ma- 
ladami/.ed streets. The city had by this time, we 
learn, risen to the dignity of a town hall, and pos- 
sessed law courts and a university. Its wharves were 
now loailed with produce and crowded with steam- 
boats and schooners. There was a hoard of Trade, 
a Mechanics' Institute, public baths, and a fixed anil 
floating property estimated at live millions sterling. 
Arounil anil about the city in all directions, Mr. Martin 
adds, were villas, farms, and line orchards and gar- 
dens. Nearly fifty years have gone by since this description of I'oronto 
strides the city has made and is making. .Marvellous as h.is been the

progress within the city proper, no le.ss marvellous has

chief progress has been westward. 
. ' .; No sooner do I'arkdale and lirocklon 

bloss<im out into a new and popu- 
lous Toronto, and in time come 
within the city's embrace, than still 
another civic extension appears and 
grows up to maturity like a gourd in 
the night. If the pace is maintained, 
we shall have ere long a continuous 
city, vocal with the sounds o( indus- 
try, from the waterfront to Weston. 
A stroll through West Toronto Junc- 
tion will astonish the 'Torontonian 
who rarely niiils the beaten paths 
of the <'ity proper. Mere he will 
find manufactories and all manner 
of industries that have sought at 
the Junction room to expand freely, 
with exemption from city taxation. 
The suburb has a stir and life about 
it which mark it as .-!! ofl'-shoot of 
the city, and born of the same enter- 
prise and energies that have made 
Toronto what it is.

equipped he passed to the I'oronto School of Medicine, where he graduated in 1882, receiving the degrees of ^LI). and C..\L 
Dr. (.'lendenan at once came out to and settled at the Junction, and in a comparatively short time built up an apprecial)le 
pr.ictice. which is now one of the largest and most lucrative in that suburban town. He holds the office of Coroner, having 

received his connnission in March, 1882. He 
is also .Medical Health Officer, C'hairman of 
the I'liblie School Hoard, and I'resident of 
the .Mechanics' Institute, positions which he 
has held since the incorporation of the Junc-

taken a deep interest in social and benevolent 
societies, being a prominent member of Stan-

Workman of the A. (). U. W.: a I'ast Chief 
Ranger of the C.O.I''.; and a member of the

painstaking in the pursuit of his profession. 
One of the most deserving of the 
city's charities, as well as one of the oldest, 
is the Protestant Orphans' Home, situate on 
Dovercourl Road, surrounded by ample |)lay- 
grounds, the Home itself being a model one, 
and by its comfort and cheerfulness tending 
to soften the asperities and brighten the out- 
look of its orphaned imnates. I'ew of 
Toronto's charitable institutions appeal more 
urgently than does the Orphans' Home to 
the sympathy and support of the public. 
The charity was hmnded so far back as 1849, and loni; liad its home on Sullivan Street, from which it removed some years ago 
to its present more suitable site. In the heyday of iier fame Madame Jenny l.ind sang on one occasion in Toronto for the 
benefit of the institution. It has not wanted iieither then nor since, many good and true friends, among whom, perhaps the 
best antl truest has been .Mrs. Matthew Vankoughnel, who h.is for many years with loyal anil unwearied devotion served its 
interests. Itesides .Mrs. \ankoughnet, and we might mention Mrs. J. S. McMurray and Mrs. R. I.. Cowan, it has on its 
directorate an active and enthusiastic band of friends among the ladies of Toronto, as well as a few staunch supporters and 
workers of the other se.\. Since the founding of the Home, fully 1,600 children have been cared for under its sheltering roof, 
and the number of its present inmates varies from 150 to 200. The efficient maintenance of this deserving charity appeals to 
the benevolence of every citizen of Toronto. An illustration of the Home will be found on page 195 of this volume.
