William K. Esling was born in Philadelphia in 1869. In 1896 he moved to the Trail Creek Area and Rossland due to the mining boom. In 1899, Esling purchased the Rossland Record, which was an evening paper, and in 1905 he acquired the Rossland Miner, which he published as a morning daily. In 1920, he became the conservative nominee for British Columbia and was subsequently elected. He redeemed the West Kootenay seat in 1925, 1926, 1930, 1935, and 1940.
