As the successor of the Very Rev. I n an Keating, his coming
m Ottawa to take charge of St. Columba parish, with all that implies,
was in itself a big undertaking and one which only a big man could
do successfully. Following a man who had endeared him-eli to all
members of society and had accomplished .urcat things. Dean uninn
soon proved himself a worthy successor of his illustrious predecessor,
lie took up his work without intermission and completed the under
takings which had been started, and immediately undertook new en
terprises for the benefit "f the parish. These lie pushed through
with his characteristic enterprise and vim, until now St. Columba
parish with all its adjuncts is a model and a ,reat institution.
An intense Catholic, Dean Quinn was never bigoted. He was
too big a man for that. He was a priest in every sense, one whom
both Catholics and Protestants naturally called "father." as a right
and mark of respect; but he was also a man among men. He never
"worked the cloth." but ranked high as a model citizen and a nun
interested in and working tor civic betterment in every way. In
every public undertaking his advice and assistance was always in

and then came the large increases in salaries to postal employes
and atlded compensation to railways for transportation, ordered by
acts of congress, followed about the same time that these increases
became effective with a slump in business. Commenting on the
pared post system, the Postmaster General is quoted as having said:
"It is a commercial venture, pure and simple. There is every reason,
therefore, why it should be made at least self-supporting." He ex
plained the department's plans for reducing operating costs $i5;ooo,
000. but that w ould be a small sum compared with the total amount
that will be required to bring the expenditures within the receipts.
"For the fiscal year ending June 30, igiO, the deficit was S17.000.
