In the history of great enterprises the
work Itself (must always take second
place. Human Interest lies In the man
or women who planned and accom
plished the work, eir William Van
Home could lest his fame solely upon
the building of the Canadian Pacific.
Bue he Is more than a general mana
ger, a ptesldent, or a. railway builder.
He has been compared to Cecil Rhodes
from the standpoint of marvelous ver
satility. Ho is an artist of undoubted
ability, and a connoisseur in music. Ho
rends Spanish, Italian and Japanese
with facility, and has made an exhaus
tive study of the art, history and Ht
eratuie of Japan. His Interest In tha
latter country has caused him to un
dertake an extended history of Japa
nese art which will be published in
many volumes, illustrated in color by
Sir William himself, with sketches of
all the exquisite gems in his own col
lection. In his palatial home In Montreal this
product of Illinois soil has a magnifi
cent collection of paintings, ancient
and modern. The Dutch seventeenth
century school Is largely in evidence,
while modern French, English and
Spanish are lepresented. In addition to.
the engrossing cares of a railroad
magnate, having under his supervision
a gigantic corporation valued at two
bundled million dollars, Sir William
has found time to become a prosperous
nmatcur farmer In two provinces, nnd
to cultivate special species of, mush
rooms. Toduy he is still comparative
ly young only 57 years of age and
from all appearances he has barely
commenced to employ his talents.
A short time ago a special writer visit
ed Montreal for the purpose of securing
matetUl for several magazine articles.
One was on tho Canadian Pacific. To
obtain this he interviewed Sir William
Van Home. Tho next subject on hi
list was the paper pulp industry. He
applied tn a Canadian paper company
and met with this reply:
"If you want anything on that sub
ject see Sir William Van Home. He
is at tho head of the largest paper pulp
concern In the country."
The thltd Item called for Information
about ths new coal and Iron develop
ments nt Sydney, Cape Breton. A vis
It to a Montreal tiado review resulted
in this response:
"Better see Sir William Van Home.
He has the Unseat Interests there."
The special writer finally returned
to New York. A commission fioin a
prominent weekly figured In thn mall
awaiting his return. It called for an
article on a new Cuban commercial
sndlcate, one recently organized on a
stupendous flnnnclnl scale. The letter
from tho weekly paper ended with
"The Information, In all probability,
can be obtained from Sir Wllllnm Van
Home. Ho heads the syndicate."
