Keys to History
About this time Hon. (now Sir) John Rose, late Minister of Finance in the Dominion Government, left Canada to take up residence in England, where he still resides. Sir Alexander Galt, Mr. Rose's predecessor in the Finance Department, had recently re-entered public life. Both gentlemen had long been prominent citizens of Montreal.
