Lord Grey, give .'jo him, the .Excellency, Sir Henry George, Earl Grey, Viscount of; Howick, Baron 'Grey., of the county .'of Northumberland, .'.and a Knighty Grand.-Cross of, the "Most distinguished Order of St.- Midi-, ael George, received his com- mission as Governor-General of .Can- ada: on, September 1M4.. -Accord- ingly, his term expired on'September 26th, 1909; tout on April 19th of.'that, year: Qie was asked, by the Secretary of for to ac- cept an extension of one "year, which he ,did. Therefore his governor-siiip will formally, be at-aa end'September 26th 1910. Vvith the members of his" family, and entourage, Lord Grey-left never bound himself with the fetters of any party. He described Mr. Stread, as "a Liberal who sup- ports the Conservatives a temperance reformer, who runs public-house, a the chair for Onairi'herlain, and a peace crusad- er who promoted the South African In explanation of tthis cryptic saying it may he added that Lord Grey was Administrator of Rhodesia in and-in England concern- ed- himself with .co-operation amongst the working, people, and the admin- istration of the Bishop of Chester's. Trust for the amelioration of the ev-: iis connected the liquor traffic. Lord Grey .came to Canada at. a critical moment, when the provinces were'.disposed to 'think rather o-f their own rights than of their privileges, Or'better, terms for'themselves rather than the .good of Canada as a whole, to say nothing of ;the interests of the Empire: .It was a .moment of great expansion; and prosperity .does hot engender in a new community a quiet temper and a reasonable mind. .The of the hew Governor and; the blithesome joy which he displayed in his office -were precisely the quali- ties which-were needed to wile away the danger of .those doubtful'times. By a certain flexibility tion he 'was able to." enter .into' the minds of of. every province those of despotism, militarism, and centralized ;By a ...swift turn he demonstrated -that these were leaily .thw issuer which were at stake in "the Boer war: _ .Again, in; Ottawa, in an address 'to school children on the occasion of the celebration .of the centenary ,of 'Nelson's .death, he repeated the.ies; son.-by 'pointing out that "it was the cause of freedom as opposed to ;potism, self-government .op- posed to militarism, the ,.equal; free men as opposed to .the coercion of a tyrant." J. Not infrequently Lord Grey -has enunciated political principles; as' pregnant with meaning as the .maxims of Burke. .One of these was imbed- ded in an address at Toronto: "If it was the mission of the last century to establish, the principles of individ- ual.-rights, it; is the mission of the present century to teach the lesson of individual duty, and the.subordina- tion of personal advantage to the more commanding interests of..the pub He good." At other times his thought has .risen to a high .level of.-I'-abUc as when he .urged the peo- the prairies to make those id- eals their "which shall require. Liverpool on December 1st- 19 Dv the and arrived -in Halifax December 10. This -ship, which has since 'become sadly old fashioned' -was then the traditional transport for high Imperial officials. Upon his arrival in Halifax .the new Governor-General was met..by .Major- General' Sir C. by -the ,LIeu- on October 9th, "It -is hecause I rregard the British Empire as the most struine'nt that has ever been fashioned for .spreading.-the.Messing .cvt. equal rights, of impartial; justice, of Christian true chivalry, that 1 regard it as the .greatest priv- ilege allowed to any man, to pfoplaim himcelf a British citizen, and to have the of placing his services at the disposal of his King, who is the visible incarnation of the race." No man living knows so much of Canada as Lord Grey, or has seen so many of'its cities or men. To, il- lustrate the extent 01 his travels, his itinerary of 'last "summer will 'serve, In June he went to England and re-. turne4 in July; Then he visited the .Pacific coast, and proceeded as far north as Dawgon City. Upon the return journey he'called at Prince Kupert, "encamped in- the Kootenay district, and in turn, Nelson, Calgary, Edmonton, "Regina and Win- nipeg. At: .the present moment he is. on a journey 'to England, ard is afooiit to.make..a...voyage through the Hudson's Bay and Straits. .To a "mind-of extreme altertness, .Lord'Grey has brought .the. experi- them esteem honor ab6ve success, vehce. which only a large-knowledge of the- spirit of; sacrifice and, service above that of selfishiness and greed, and nobility aiid rather than the -pursuit of-pleasure, and. the gratification of Nor have the children.of Canada can procure. When, the chairman of the -Canadian' Club at Vancouver welcomed him in 1906 to of, the guest able to, refer to a visit he had made to those -parts twenty-five years which he He told the -people of of the "historical halo of adventure, endurance and romance'' which surrounded their country, and mortification which he, suffered', in. sending his .correspondence-to Eng- land via 'New York 'instead of Sydney. He admitted in Kingston that he stood upon holy ground. He commented upon "happy, "handsome appear- ance of the people, of and "the grace, refinement and distinc- tion" with which they did things. He reminded'the citizens of Winnipeg, that' they were housed on an area equal to that of he found in churches moral even taste and culture; and he look- f to the time when theirs would be "a city, of music, literature."

He was sworn -in -the same' day by the -late Chief Justice Sedgewick- who acted for the Chief Jus-tice; and; after the usual social ceremonies' left -for Otta- wa, arriving at the capital on. the December .13th. By a curio of circnnv. stances Lord Grey had many family affiliations with ttxe affairs-of Canada. The. Countess of Minto is his sister. Lord Durham was married to an aunt and Lord Elgin was married-to their daughter. His.grandfather the second JBarl, was Secretary of State the Colonies in Lord John Russell cah- With. Lord Grey it is not easy to say. where the, pleasantry- ends and the seriousness Begins; If he had" oc- casion to address the evil one he would faegin by commending his per- sistency, and conclude (by telling him other truths which were equally ob- vious if not equally pleasant- lAt St. tainment of' its own aggrandizement, and in its selfish pursuit, ftlind and deaf to the higher interests of the State." He also told them that they did not know how to cure herrings. In equally plain terms at Winnipeg he reprehended those who seek position no idea of serving any other in- been -forgotten.

To -be. "honest, said, was more praiseworthy than to. ibe smart, There has also been a for women, "the most lovely of the Creator's Vorks." and "the most powerful for setting social stand- ards." When Lord Grey came to Canada, there was little feeling in the minds of the people of their Imperial rponsSbility. As he goes away the sense is deep-seated, and has already begun to manifest itself, iby certain motions towards the pocket. ing could have been more winsome than his countenance toward that l movement 'which has s ended in the creation of a Canadian navy- There was no attempt to persuade the peo- ple -to engage in an expenditure about which they anight afterwards repine. On the contrary, at the club at St John, August 14th, 1907, he gave good reasons for his "view that Can- ada should' not make any immediate contribution to the as there Tvere other directions in which it was more important in Imperial interests that Canada should expend. sr en- .ergies at that time. He comforted the people of Toronto by. telling them that -they were contributing to the Kmpire in many ways, if not to the Imperial fleet, and on another formal occasion in Quebec he affirmed that "there is other worfc to be performed of even greater importance than an immediate contribution." And all this time he gently chaffed us When he on our be- muca as a- baptismal name and was known as Gastowh. In all activities, Lord Grey has observed punctiliously .that rectitude of a official demeanor -which a long tradition .has prescribed for the sovereign and for his representa- tives. .With" an easy .grace he evad- ed the entanglements of those minor has had no champion more ar- dent.

It was a shrewd and humorous thrust they received "Gentlemen, it is not -for me to express- any opin- ion as to the measures which Parlia- ment in its .wisdom may see fit to with the object of developing the resources of your .province and in- crease its commerce. But I may, perhaps, ibe permitted to say that any measure intended to promote your prosperity and that of the Dominion, not he less welcome to .me than to any of you."

With -the affiliations one would expect Lord Grey to be a Liberal in politics. Indeed lie was the Liberal inem-ber for. South .Northumberland till 1886, when he identified himself with the Unionists at the time when Mr. Gladstone declared for Home Rule for Ireland. But Lord Grey has instead of guardians "'become vampires upon the people whose trust .they have be- trayed." In all his public speeches Lord Grey has combined a singular graciousness with sincerity of feeling and absolute truth of .statement. vVhen he had occasion to refer to Wolfe and Mdfit- calm, he reminded French and Eng- lish thai it'was possible in one na- tionality to -comibiae the virtue and valor of the two races. In Quebec, on August 15th, at the unveiKng of the monument in memory of those who fell fighting in South Africa, when it was necessary to Nelson's victory over Napoleon, he careful to point out that the .great war was not a struggle between and English, "tout [between the principles of liberty, of freedom, and ed us most-delicately that the ship was a joint undertaking.

Then ne told us how certain he was, as he witnessed on every side, a healthy, manly, self-re- specting spirit, that Canada, when the time was ripe, would do even more than her- duty towards the fleet which protected her. He described on oth- er occasions the pleasure and pride which Englishmen felt in paying their taxes for the maintenance of that fleet and how. resolved they were to bear the burden, though they num- bered 50 per.cent, less .than the peo- ple of Germany, and only hslf the population of the people of the United States. At Kingston, he expressed the be- lief that "if we do not hurry unduly we shall see the realization of our Imperial hopes." What is still more strange, the thing is coming faster than one could have suspected at .that time. In this result lies the proof of political wisdom. Lord Grey's Imperialism may be Alma.

When he reminded them that "of the one thousand years of Bri- tain's pride, nine-tenths are yours as much a.s there was really noth- ing more to be said; and it was no wonder "the toast was drunk standing with cheers."
