Mr James Kent, Manger of the system, accompanied by Mr WJ Camp, Electrical Engineer, and Mrs Camp, left Montreal today for a western trip inspection which will take them to Canada's Pacific Coast. Mr BS Jenkins, General Superintendent at Winnipeg, will accompany the party from that point to the Coast. The various superintendents will be picked up en route, each covering his own specified division. Mr William Marshall has been appointed superintendent in Toronto for the Ontario Division succeeding Mr AW Barber, now deceased. Albert W Barber, aged fifty-four years of age, superintendent at Toronto, died 29 July from diabetes. Mr Barber was born at Toronto, and the larger part of his telegraphic career had been spent in that city. He entered the service of the company in 1886 as manager in the Toronto telegraph office, which position he held until 1899 when he was promoted to the superintendency of the CPR.
