If T is a labelled tree, A is totally positive relative to T , principal submatrices of A associated with deletion of pendent vertices of T are P-matrices, and A has positive determinant, then the smallest absolute eigenvalue of A is positive with multiplicity 1 and its eigenvector is signed according to T. This conclusion has been incorrectly conjectured under weaker hypotheses.
