As a young man,   Mr. Thomas  Ephraim Potts (1872-1952)  worked at Deloro Smelting and Refining Co. Ltd,  and ran the boarding house in Deloro  for three years.  He later  operated the old St. James Hotel for nine years, the Royal Hotel in Marmora for another nine years,  the Tipperary House on Crowe Lake for five years , and Huyck's Hotel in Tweed (Tweedsmuir)for six years.

During all the time he was in the hotel business,  Mr. Potts carried on without a liquor license and proved it was possible to make a success of it without one.
