MACKINTOSH, Charles Herbert, Canadian journalist, born in London, Ontario, in 1843. He was educated at Galt grammar-school and at Caradock academy and studied law, but left it for journalism. In 1860, on the visit of the Prince of Wales to Canada, he wrote the address of welcome. He was afterward connected with newspapers in London and Hamilton, Ont., and in 1865 began publishing the Strathroy " Dispatch," which he sold in 1874. Mr. Mackintosh founded the Parkhill " Gazette" in 1871, was managing editor of the Chicago "Journal of Commerce" in 1873, and in 1874 became editor of the Ottawa "Daily Citizen." He was mayor of Ottawa in 1879-'81, chairman of the Dominion exhibition in 1879, and president of the Agricultural association in 1881. He was an unsuccessful candidate for the legislature of Ontario in 1871, but was elected to the Dominion parliament for the city of Ottawa in 1882. He is president of the Ottawa Colonization railway, of the Ottawa and Gatineau Valley railway, and of the " Citizen" printing and publishing company. He wrote "The Chicago Fire" (1871); "The Financial Panic in the United States and its Causes" (1873); a prize poem for the O'Connell centennial, for which he was awarded a gold and silver medal (1875); and speeches in pamphlet-form, in which he advocates a protective tariff (1876-'8); and he edited the "Canadian Parliamentary Companion" (Ottawa, 1877-'82).
