CHIEF GRAHAM, TORONTO, CANADA. Thomas Graham was appointed to the fire department of Toronto, Canada, in the capacity of engineer of one of the Steam fire engines, and continued in that capacity until January 1876, when the permanent paid fire depart ment was established. Of that department he became second assistant, chief and occupied that position till February 1879, when he was promoted to that of first assistant or deputy chief. On the death of Chief Ardagh, the fire and light committee of the city council of Toronto, recommended Mr. Graham to the vacant office, to which he was accordingly appointed by the council in February of this year. The promotion was eminently suitable, for not only is Chief Graham in every way a practical fireman, and a thorough disciplinarian, but he is also extremely popular with both the officers and men of the department.
