OTTAWA. -- Prlendshlps m?ai- ninth to Richard B. liiimelt. new- I iy-elected piime minister of Can- j ada, and ihe wealihiest man whi | hns ever held lhal po.sition. Heimelt owns JU.OKl.QM worih o .slock in one of Ihe world's large.-, h.mbtr companies, bill he- ntv • paid lor a share of 11. Tlie .slock wus given him by boyhood friend.-; through a peculiar chain of eh eumstances. Behind the gift of Ihir, vast fortune to the eminent lawyer am leading poliiician lies a sloiy o unique freindshlps begun in ihr eighties when Bennett was n hl-j school student at Cnatham. Nev. Brunswick. There he came in con inct with the family whose at miaintance was to mean .so mud: (o him. ' Mel Oirl at Debates Prrmler Bennell is probably Ihe j brilliant orator In ihe Canadian parliament. The foundation for this achievement, was laid in those early days when he led high school debates on potiiical subjects.; culled from newspapers. The young man iaughi Sunday I school and bscamc un advocate of j temperance. There were many de- | bat?s held In the Temperance Halt In Chatham in which he took part. Among his closest associates in these debates were Jennie and John T. (Harry) Shirelf, children of the high sheriff of Northumberland County. Bennett had formed few friendships al school because he spent most ol his time at hi.s ttudies. But he'came to'know the Shlreffs well and oficn was seen at their home. He was too busy (o have a sweetheart, which probably explains why, at. CO. he has never married. High .school days over, Bennett entered college at Halifax and then returned to Chatham to praciice law. Jennie Shireff went to Brookline, Mass., to train as a nurse. She became the companion of the daughter of Ezra Butler Eddy, pi- ouecr lumberman, owner of vast Quebex tlmberlanrls. and even then a millionaire. Mrs. Eddy had died a year before Jennie Shireff became the second Mrs. Eddy in 1894 and her brother became manager of the Eddy company's big plant at Halifax. Meanwhile, Bennett was making a name for himself politically as well as in the legal profession. In Ihe. late nineties, he went west to grow_..up_K!th_ ihe country. _He lamtKS-«t;Calgary and in the growing province of Alberta he was sc.Dii noled as an orator. Before he was 30 he was a member of the Legislature of the Northwest Territory. As the years went by Bennett grew in prominence. Ofier he visited his old friends in the casi. He gave valuable legal advice to the old lumberman and his young wife and her brother, but refused lo accept remuneration. In 1906 Ezrn Eddy died, leaving the bulk of his fortune to his wife, who had proved herself an astulc business woman. > Bennett Inherits Fortune When Nfrs. Eddy became ill in 1921. she drew up a will leaving her brother 1007 of the 3000 shores of Ihe Eddy stock, and "my friend of the last 30 years. Kichard Bedford Bennett, barrister." 500 shares. Besides that, she left more than a. million dollars to charities and churches. Her brother, than vice president of ihe lumber concern, bought himself one more share of the stock, which was valued at S1000 a share.- He and Bennett were to come into their stock five years after the death of Mrs. Eddy. But Harry Shirred did not live that long. He died a few months before the period * up, in May, 1926. His will transferred to Bennett his 1008 shares of paid-upstock, giving the man who was shortly after to become leader of Canada's powerful Conservative party the controlling interest in one of the largest pulp and paper and match industries in the world. The company's plant at Hull, which Prime Minister Bennett can sec from the windows of his office in the Parliament Building on Parliament Hill. Ottawa, is roughly valued at J4.000.000 and the company is rated at being worth more than three limes thai amount. Bennett also has accumulated oilier wealth. Hon. Richard B.
