Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 30, 1910, Lethbridge, Alberta Daiiy WILLIAM WHYTE; NATION BUILDER (Toronto Globe.) Once the Scotchman gets fairly under way, he will travel a long way from the porridge ipot. The innate hungrlness of the av- erage Scot for book learning, the Spar tan self denial of his early training, the granite like strength of his char- acter, the indomitable optimism, the dauntless perseverance, the passion- ate earnestness, the self reliance, the ihonesty, the integrity, the oh, pshaw! This bust on a 'pedestal style gets tiring. Let us come uown to a living, breathing, human example, who loves .and hates and errs and triumphs. Take Bill Wlhyte. Bill Whyte! Who is Bill Whyte? .you say. My dear reader, did you never trav- el west of -Fort William? Ah, now you know. Yes, that's the man I mean. And you nw be excused for not recognizing him at first mention, for ihe man lias raised himself to such a high pinnacle of human endeavor that even his old associates are tak- ing to dropping the "'Bill" and substi- tuting the "William." Take ..Mr. William then, if you will have it so, and, since you're so formal, let us add on his full offi- cial uile, and speak of him as Mr. William Whyte, the Second Vice-Eres- iuent of the Canadian Pacific Hail- way. Tihere is not a Scotchman in. Can- ada who has travelled so far from the porridge pot as he is still going. There's not a man in the West of whom the West is prouder For a man whose '-word is law up and down the odd miles of the Can- adian Pacific Hallway system in a man who holds the destinies of thousands of employees in jjis hand William Whyte is delightfully companionable and human. Just imagine how un- bearable some people would be if they were in his position, how aloof they would hold themselves, and how, once -they did suffer" your presence', they would make ..u ordinary indi- vidual diminish to the -size of a spot on the carpet because of" their'aug- ust majesty. William Whyte may be a proud man ought to be, if he there is none of the pouter pigeon about him. if you want to see him, and after, you have had your inter- view, no mater bow serious the sub- ject of conversation'.may be, you will come away feeling as though you have been home on a visit to fatiher. As far as-thQ western system of the C. 'P. u. goes, William Whyte Is prac- tically the absolute master and final authority. All the extensions and de- velopments of the 'Western division are also planned uiuiu-iug it 5UU1- I his, m frier, is the history of the mer home of his own there; how he in XT. moral 'welfare of the men under him; about his exciting as, for instance, when he 'headed the band of men that went out to resist toy force the forcible laying of the Northern Pacific tracks over those of the -C. K. at a place twelve -miles from Winnipeg, said place ever since known as Foil Whyte; how he made Keewatin popular as a summer resort for Winnipeggers by building a sum- besr known man in the West, essarily, "he has had manv things to do and -to say in his time, but neither his actions nor his words have ever left bitterness .behind them. Perhaps a story or two will best in- dicate the character of the man. One of the best known editors in Canada once -told me that he owed a good deal of his success to a few words of advice from William Whyte. likely he has forgotten all about it." he said, "hut I haven't. was doing the 'assignment' of rail- ways' at that time, and I had been bad ly scooped several times by a report- el on a rival paper. His yarns were fakes, i felt sure, but I couldn't prove it., So one day I went to William and told him 1 wanted to ex- pose one of this other fellow's stories, i asked him to give me some material to make my rival's stoYies look silly." said Mr. Whyte, 'let me Nee-j earned the tiianks of Winnipeggers hard for all time by building the De Lor- raine branch up to Whytwold, the hoi iday resort on Lake Wdnmueg; how he delights in sport, especially In hunting prairie chicken, in company, with his ibosom friend, Sir Daniel Me-! -Millan, governor of Manitoba; and last, but not least, how he wooed and won Jane, daughter of Adam Scott, of Toronto.

Now a little story to show iMr. Whyte's diplomatic powers.

With the watches disappeared at the same time -a-ihorse and wagon 'belonging to the National Express Company. Vice President Pitts said, as the watches were numbered, the robbers in Winnipeg with the. intention of will; have hard work to dispose of 'making many sweeping demands from them.
