Donald Macmaster

MACMASTER, Donald, Canadian member of parliament, born in Glengarry, 3 September, 1846. He was graduated at McGill university as bachelor of civil law in 1871, admitted to the bar of Quebec in that year, and to that of Ontario in 1882, when he also became a Queen's counsel. He represented Glengarry in the Ontario parliament from 1879 till he resigned in May, 1882, to become a candidate for the Dominion parliament, to which he was elected for the same constituency. He has gained reputation as an eloquent speaker.

--BEGIN-Gilbert McMaster

McMASTER, Gilbert, clergyman, born in the parish of Saint field, Ireland, 13 February, 1778; died in New Albany, Indiana, 15 March, 1854. He emigrated with his parents to the United States in 1791, studied two years at Jefferson college, Pennsylvania, and was licensed to practise medicine in 1805, but abandoned it for theology, and in i807 was licensed to preach, being ordained the next year as pastor of the Reformed Presbyterian church of Duanesburg, New York. He officiated there until 1840, when he accepted a call from the church in Princeton, Indiana, which he resigned, on account of the failure of his health, in 1846. Union gave him the degree of D. D. in 1828. His works include "An Essay in Defence of Some Fundamental Doctrines of Christianity" (Utica, New York. 1815); " The Shorter Catechism Analyzed" (1815)" " An Apology for the Book of Psalms" (1818); and the "Moral Character of Civil Government" (1832).--His son, Erasmus Darwin, clergyman, born in Mercer, Pennsylvania, 4 February, 1806; died in Chicago, Illinois, 11 September, 1866, was graduated at Union in 1827, studied theology under his father, and in 1831 was ordained pastor of the Presbyterian church in Ballston, New York. He became president of South Hanover college, Indiana, in 1838, but resigned in 1845 to accept the presidency of Miami university. After four years' service in that institution he was made professor of systematic theology in New Albany theological seminary, and from January, 1866, till his death, a few months afterward, occupied the same chair in the Theological seminary of the northwest, Chicago, Illinois. Dr. McMaster exercised an almost unbounded influence over the students with whom he was connected. Union gave him the degree of D.D. in 1841.--Another son, James Alphonsus, journalist, born in Duanesting, Schenectady County, New York, 1 April, 1820" died in Brooklyn, New York, 29 December, 1886, entered Union college, but left without being graduated, began the study of law, and became a private tutor. In 1845 he united with the Roman Catholic church, and soon afterward went to Belgium, where he entered a Redemptorist novitiate for "reflection and study to decide his vocation." His own inclination at that time tended toward the priesthood, but his confessor commanded him to " enter the world and become a Catholic journalist." He returned to the United States, bought in 1848 the "Freeman's Journal and Catholic Register," and for nearly forty years was regarded as the chief Roman Catholic journalist in this country. In 1861 he was arrested and confined in Fort Lafayette for his uncompromising strictures upon the war measures of President Lincoln, and his paper was suppressed. At the end of eleven months he was released, and the publication of the "Freeman's Journal" was resumed, 19 April, 1862. Although a life-long Democrat, he bitterly opposed the candidacy of Samuel J. Tilden, and, in spite of his devotion to his church, he did not spare its highest dignitaries. Much of his violent language during the last ten years of his life was attributed to chronic disease.
