CHAS. FRANKLIN STILWELL, manager

of the Edison Lamp Works, Hamilton,

Out., was born on the 28th of March, 1861, at Newark, N.J. He was educated at the public schools of that city. Leaving home in 1874, he became connected with several branches of mercantile business until 1879, when he went to Menlo Park, N.J., the birthplace of the incandescent light. Under his brother-in-law, T. A. Edison, he acquired a thorough and practical knowledge of the manufacture of incandescent lamps. In 1881 he started a lamp factory in Montreal, and in 1883 came to Hamilton, where he began the present works, the only establishment of the kind in Canada. The works employ thirty hands, and are lighted from their own plant. They make all kinds of lamps, from the smallest, giving half a candle power, to that of one hundred and fifty candle power. The manufacture of these lamps is most difficult, as they have to pass through more than two hundred operations. Mr. Stilwell was married in December, 1881, to Sarah

F., daughter of Prof. S. D. Frazee, Plain-field, N.J. In religion he is a Methodist, and in politics a Conservative.
