Tilley was reelected in , becoming premier in and remaining in office until defeated as a champion of confederation in The anticonfederate forces fell apart, however, and in Tilley was back in a proconfederation Cabinet which won a healthy victory at the polls in the same year. Before Tilley's chief public interest was confederation, and he had long been an advocate of one of its chief requisites, a railway uniting British North America. He was a delegate representing New Brunswick at the conferences in Charlottetown and Quebec in and in London in It was a natural step for him to become a member of the first Canadian House of Commons, and he was elected for Saint John City in and reelected in The first prime minister of Canada, the Conservative Sir John Alexander Macdonald, carefully constructed his first Cabinet to give the fullest possible representation both to the new provinces and to existing political interests; and Tilley, although a Liberal, was taken into Macdonald's government as the first minister of customs.
Wilmot and Tilley
This portfolio, involving as it did the reorganization of the former provincial services into a unified federal administration, was a major, though not a spectacular, assignment in which Tilley acquitted himself well. Shortly before the parliamentary session of Tilley was appointed minister of finance, a distinct promotion but a short-lived one, as the Macdonald ministry went out of office in the same year, and Tilley had been appointed lieutenant governor of New Brunswick even before that event.
Tilley served in the province until , when he was again persuaded to run for Saint John. Upon his own reelection and the formation of a second ministry by Macdonald, Tilley again became minister of finance. He was reelected to the Commons in and served in Finance until , in a portfolio made particularly sensitive by Macdonald's adoption in of a general policy of tariff protection for Canadian industry, the National Policy.
Tilley, long a protectionist where New Brunswick was concerned, had no trouble adapting his views to the national scene.
