Ewing, who with his wife and little son, have passed out ot the : of the people of Taber to take up : their residence In the city ot 'POrt.:; William, a port at the head ot ..tlia . Great Lakes. I might say a great sea port tor that Is what Fo^t William and Port Arthur i will eventually become. Great shipbuilding � interests will grow up there on the completion oC: the Georgian Bay canal when ther win become tlie great shipping poinn for the grain and other produce ot these western provinces. ' Mr. Ewing came among us ,Mm� years ago, taking charge ot the'B^�t>> em Township Bank, which was the 1 first Institution of the kind to locato; here.  Afterwards the Elastem Townships Bank was absorbed by the Ca* nadian Bank of Commerce and Mr. r Ewlng was continued as manager of same. Being a j^oung man ot;good, address, he was veiry successful la-' gaining the good will ot the people o(.'^ Taber and surrounding country and building up a large business for: the, bank which he represented. TheCli-� nadian Bank ot Commerce iB'noyrii showing Its appreciation ot hi; goqd' work in the "Taber district by seleet"'; ing Mr. EwIng to represent them latv'. Fort William where ho will, acquire ;| experience in handing larger lines t>Ci-�<, business. And should be prove'a auc�.,''l cess at Port wnilam (of wblcfa'l haveiij no doubt) he will eventually rise itUlv^f higher, and some day In the; futurer;! will be called to represent'the CBna<< dlan Bank of Commerce as a western'^ director of that institution. ' Mn EwIng will be missed by, many: In Taber as he was a Jovial^ young { gentlemab, taking part in. all �poctaT| and giving a helping hand In overyo, thing that was tor the welfare ot tbq' X town.
