• I must congratulate the Hudson's Bay Company upon the quiet but steady progress made in the movement initiated some two years ago for encouraging emigration to Canada. The present Governor of the Hudson's Bay Company, Mr. C. V. Sale, is eminently fitted for his duties in the sense that, joined with his well-known abilities as a business administrator, he has the enthusiasm for Empire development which undoubtedly gives an impetus to the whole policy of the Hudson's Bay Company, and at the same time creates an atmosphere favourable to the popularity of the company in Canada. In the size and quality of the extension of the great Hudson's Bay Stores in Canada, Mr. Sale has undoubtedly id splayed faith in the future of that country, and already the enterprises seem to be producing most encouraging results.
