LT.-COL. A. E. MASSIE DEAD AT SAINT JOHN
Born in Scotland, Lived for Many Years in Fredericton -- Ill Short Time.
News of the death in Saint John yesterday of Lieutenant-Colonel Albert E. Massie, was heard of with regret in Fredericton by many friends, who were unaware of the seriousness of his condition, although they knew he was not in good health.
Born in Aberdeen, Scotland, on Oct. 14th, 1868, he came to New Brunswick with his parents at the age of 11 years. With his parents, William and Annie (Soutter) Massie, he took up residence in Fredericton where he lived for a great many years. He was educated in the schools of Fredericton and a pupil of the late Sir George R. Parkin, principal of the old high school located in Brunswick Street. He was engaged as a young man in the watch repairing business and later entered the shoe
business, conducting a business in Queen Street. He later became a commercial traveller, representing several well known shoe and rubber concerns. He covered eastern Canada and Newfoundland. During his years on the "road" he acquired a great knowledge of people and conditions and was known for his genial and affable manner, his willingness to enter into any activity for the good of the community he happened to be in. Before leaving Fredericton to take up residence in Saint John where he was employed Colonel Massie was active in every work of Fredericton. He was a member of a musical organization in Fredericton known as the F. O. M. W., of which W A. Adams of Fredericton, was a member. In 1934 he offered as a candidate for the Saint John City Council and was elected. He served as commissioner of harbor, ferries, public lands
and publicity until the recent election in Saint John when the old commission system went down to defeat. He was vice president of the Board of Trade, and enthusiastic member of Saint Andrew's Society, being president for some time. He had the honored office of "bard" and his exceptional literary gifts were displayed in the greetings sent out by Saint John to sister societies on St. Andrew's Day. He was connected with the Saint John Tourist Association and in 1932 was appointed director of publicity. The airport was also under his supervision and he did much to have the airport facilities keep pace with modern ideals. He was a keen golfer, being a member of the Riverside Golf and County Club.
Col. Massie had a long military career which began in Fredericton in the ranks of the 71stYork Battalion. He was commissioned as an officer and later was captain and quartermaster of that unit. After removal to Saint John he was selected to organize and command the first unit of the Canadian Army Service Corps in New Brunswick. His success was so outstanding that he was promoted in that branch of the militia and in the early stages of the Great War was appointed to command the 2nd Divisional Train, C. E. F. and served with it in France. Col. Massie won the D. S. O. in active service, being three times mentioned in despatches. He returned to Canada at the end of the war and was for a time general sales manager with the Dominion Rubber Company footwear division in Montreal office before taking up the Maritime appointment under that firm.
In early life Col. Massie was prominent as a rifleman. "Al" Massie, as he was known to his numerous friends, visited Fredericton last fall and met many old friends, who will learn of his death with sorrow.
Besides his wife, who was formerly Miss Ada Burchill of Fredericton, he is survived by two sons, Dr. R. A. Massie, Sawyerville, Quebec and Donald A. at home; two brothers, Stephen of Boston and George, a barrister of Edmonton, Alta.; three sisters, Mrs. E. C. Dyer, South Portland, Me.; Mrs. William C. Clarke, Duke Street, Saint John, and Mrs. F. C. Wry, 127 Wright Streeet, Saint John.

#79a (The only date I can find on this clipping is on the reverse side - "...y 17, 1937." This seems to have come from the Saint John, NB newspaper, and was folded so that it would fit in a small envelope. There is a picture of Colonel Massie which I have scanned and will send to anyone who requests it.)
PASSING BRINGS MANY REGRETS
Lt. Col. A. E. Massie Dies Suddenly at East Riverside.
With profound sorrow, friends throught the Maritime Provinces will learn of the death of Lieut. Col. A. E. Massie which occurred at his home at East Riverside shortly before last midnight. He had been in poor health for some months but the seriousness of his condition was not generally realized.
Born in Scotland, he came to New Brunswick with his parents as a lad of 11 years and had been identified with many different phases of life in this province, besides serving overseas during the Great War.
In every phase of community life which he touched as skilled mechanic, commercial traveler, leading business man, a member of the City Council and the Board of Trade and in his membership in St. Andrew's Society he displayed an ability and geniality coupled with the sterling qualities of his Scottish heritage that made him an outstanding figure, enjoying the esteem and high regard of all with whom he came in contact.
He was born in Aberdeen on Oct. 14, 1868, a son of the late William and Annie (Soutter) Massie and when the family came to New Brunswick they took up residence in Fredericton. There he received his early education. He graduated from the Fredericton High School with honors and he delighted to recall his association with his famous teacher, the late Dr. George R. Parkin. He made his residence in Saint John and vicinity in 1910.
His first business venture was in watch repairing and in that skilled craft he received training in matters mechanical which stood him in good stead when he launched out into wider business endeavors. From watch repairing he stepped out into a field in which he was most eminently
successful, that of commercial traveler. He represented Ames Holden Co., Montreal; James McCready Co., Ltd., Montreal, and Merchants Rubber Co., Kitchener, Ont. Eastern Canada and Newfoundland were embraced in the territory he covered and during those years "on the road" he
obtained a knowledge of people and conditions through the extended area that were invaluable in later activity.
He was advanced in the employ of the Dominion Rubber Company (Maritime) Limited through all the various stages from traveler to that of head of the firm's organization for the Maritimes and Newfoundland. When the firm underwent reorganization, Colonel Massie enjoyed a short period of
retirement only to return again to full business activity as a member of the firm of The Jones Electric Supply Co., Ltd., King Street.
Enters Politics
He first offered as candidate for the City Council in 1934 and was elected at that time. He served with zeal as commissioner of harbor, ferries, public lands and publicity, until the recent election returned the full slate of the Civic Improvement League nominations and the old commission system went down to defeat.
Colonel Massie served as a vice-president and as a member of the council of the Board of Trade, being chairman of the entertainment committee. He was among the most enthusiastic members of St. Andrew's Society and had served as president of that organization. Until last year, he held the honored office of "bard," and his exceptional literary gifts were displayed in the writing of the rhymed greeting sent by the Saint John Organizations to sister societies on St. Andrew's Day. He
had been a noted singer as a young man.
He had served for 30 years in the militia and enlisted shortly after the outbreak of the Great War and went overseas as lieutenant-colonel commanding the 2nd Canadian Divisional Train and won the D. S. O. in active service, being three times mentioned in despatches. He returned to Canada at the end of the war and was for a time general sales manager with the Dominion Rubber Company footwear division in Montreal office before taking up the Maritime appointment under that firm.
For a considerable period, Colonel Massie was connected with the Saint John Tourist Association and in 1932 he was appointed director of publicity. When publicity was added to the activities of his department as city commissioner, he continued his enterprising efforts to bring Saint John's attractions before the public and make the city a centre of tourist traffic. The air port was also under his supervision and he was untiring in his endeavors to have the airport facilities keep pace with modern ideals.
Colonel Massie had membership in the Riverside Golf and Country Club and in St. Andrew's Curling Club and was a member of the Masonic order.
Besides his wife, who was formerly Miss Ada Burchill of Fredericton, he is survived by two sons, Dr. R. A. Massie, Sawyerville, Quebec, and Donald A. at home; two brothers, Stephen of Boston and George, a barrister of Edmonton, Alta.; three sisters, Mrs. E. C. Dyer, South Portland, Me.; Mrs. William C. Clarke, Duke Street, Saint John, and Mrs. F. C. Wry, 127 Wright Street, Saint John.

something of the scope of the provincial as against the federal laws and some of the duties of the various courts. James Williamson, vice-president, was in the chair and at the close of the meeting a vote of thanks, moved by Robert Gooderich and seconded by H. W. Jones was tendered to the speaker. A committee consisting of P. L. Miller, F. M. Hastings and Roy Ruddock was in charge of the refreshments served in the social hour at the close of the evening and shuffle board was enjoyed.
There was a good attendance.

Paul Kool, her father, is the skipper of the "coaster."

The article on the reverse of the Isabel Carr picture is dated "Ottawa, Aug. 11" and mentions a government Order-in-Council of April 1926 being repealed by the present government. The reverse side of the Budd Fisher picture is about the provincial budgets of 1937, 1938, and 1939.)

Blazing Barn In Midst of Ice-Run
"Fire! Fire!" was the shout that was rendered on the Fredericton-Devon Highway bridge yesterday afternoon at the height of the ice run. There floating down river was a barn, ablaze in all its glory, giving color to the huge white cakes of ice, which surrounded the blazing barn which a few hours before had been standing on one of the islands, full of hay.
As the floating fire drifted down river, it was soon lost to view as it was first enveloped in a dark cloud of smoke and then graciously vanished from sight among the floating cakes.

#80h From the People
A PIONEER
To the Editor of The Gleaner
Dear Sir, -- In regard to your notice of recent issue of the passing of the Glasiers from the St. John River, I might say that Raymond's History of the River St. John has some points interesting from a historical view. In 1764, in Montreal, officers of the 44th and other regiments, joined the St. John's River Society and chose Capt. Beamsley Glasier as their agent. Having obtained three years' leave of absence from his regiment, he set sail for Halifax, where he was received by the
Governor, who called his council together, to consider what assistance they could give him. He then went to St. John, and took a boat up the river. Of the country he says: "The intervale lands on the St. John are wonderful - not a stone, and black mold six feet deep. No underwood; large, tall trees, all hardwood; you may drive a coach though the trees; the whole country abounds with game, and the river abounds with all sorts of small fry as trout, salmon, bass, white-fish and sturgeon." The Governor and Council consented to 20,000 acres of timber land being set aside, and a mill erected for the Society. Beamsley Glasier chose "Nashwaak Creek," and a townsite was surveyed. Next year another town was proposed, and Glasier proposed St. Anne's Point, which is the finest spot on the river for our purpose." Of his work for the settlers a contemporary said "Capt. Glasier has done everything that was possible for any man to do, and more than any one else in his situation would
have done to serve the Society." His descendants, Senator John and Stephen Glasier, were the first lumbermen to bring a drive over Grand Falls. At that time they employed six hundred men. I might add that Grant No. 1 in the Crown Land Office here was made out to Beamsley Glasier. He was also the first member to go from the new County of Sunbury to the Parliament at Halifax.
Respectfully,
A DESCENDANT
