Tho Hudson's Bay Company started humbly, but In the course of generations it devolojied until it has risento be tho greatest fur trading corporation in the world with hulf a continent dotted thickly with its trading posts, with in -numerable white men and indhins in its employ, and with a name and prestige universal. Though the laws of the great west am not now made and administered by the Hudson's Hay Company and the untire trade it. not controlled by it yet ono twen  ticth of the "fertile belt" was giv. en to the company by the Cnnadiun government when the new provinces wero organized nearly forty years ago. and it is a very wealthy and influential organization. On the second day of May, two hundred nnd thirty-seven years ago eighteen London merchants secured from King Charles, England's merry monarch, a charter granting them the privilegeof exclusive trade In furs in that part of British North Arnar ica drained by the streams flowing into Hudson bay. His Royal Highness Prince Ru|>ert nephowof tho king, the dushing cavalry leader who performed such pro f|igijes of valor against Cromwell's invuipible ironsides, ^ns selected by tho nwrcfrnnts as the head qf tb"ir company and the chapter was grant od to "The Governor and Cpmpany of Adventurers Trailing into Hudson and two black ben vers, but the papers show that �fi00 of the original stock was placed to his credit and the payments of the dlvliletnls wero {made a mart or of considerable, importance. "Pro Pellc Cutcm," the motto ot the company signifies skin for skin and Illustrates that tradlag und fur trading principally, v-as vho irtmc object of the Hudson's Hay Company. Tlie organ I/el's at once 'fitted out ships which curried traders and merchants to the shoivs of Aha Hudson Hay and o|tcncd up trade, by barter, with the Indians. Gradually tha trade was pushed forward and coveted British North America. As the company grew in wealth and power the iwrtners on this sido of the water made their headquarter* nt Montreal where they lived splendor and thoir meetings with the wintering partners at the western headquarters, on the shores ot tho great lakes were occasions of mu ,'.t IMimp and ceremony accompanied I y wonderful feasts. ^ The story of the secession of dls affected partners and the orgnnl/.a tlon of the X. Y. und NorWost com Itaiiios and the sanguinary strugglo which was carried on over the pral  lo country, culminating in the terrible disaster of Seven Oaks, is well known to all renders and requires uii comment. It was followed shortly afterward by the amalgamation of tho rival companies under.the name of the pioneer traders nnd since that time has gone forward fn>m strccet* to success. Trade has always lieon by tmrtor and the Iwover skin was originally the standard by which tne prices |ioid for other furs. At one time a s|>eilcs of token-money was used by the company, by which if the trapiiors did not wish goods in immediate return for thole furs they received a duo bill, negotiable al any of the posits of tho company. Owing to tho systematic orgnnizutious of the Hudson's liny company It has Ivon aJ>le to give a great deal of help to exploring ami scientific parties travelling across Canada for generations past, und hns also been of great assistance to the govern iik>nt at different times. The nrcti mails ore carried by the company for the government ami their cig teams traverse thousands of miles over trackless snows with |i '.'(-! safety. les nnd markets more furs than any Other company in the world, SKINS AT �l,.-i00 EACH. The silver, fox skin Is the most valuable fur on the market andsklns of that allium I have been secured which wero worth $t,fi00 each. In securing the furs nnd transporting them to London, the world's great  est fur market, a great deal of labor is entailed. Some of the furs are carried on the Imrks of men formlles nnd miles. Some dragged on dog sledges, some in canoes are paddled long distances along the northern lakes ami stream* and others sro carried in sail and steamboats. The company has n large number of steamers on all, the large waters of the north, which carry supplies to the north during the summer and in return bring Imck tho winter catch of furs. When tins railroads wero opened uu through western Canada tlie onty place where supplies could be obtained was nt the stores of the Hud  son's Ikiy company and with the inrush of settlers the trade rapidly grew. With the Increase of trade the stores grew In size nnd nnmlwr until now the company hns departmental stores in till the lni|x>rtnnt centre* of the west. Tho largest store Is in Winnipeg. In addition to the nuiny other linos of work taken up by the fur-trading ompany they hove shown the possibilities of the Pence River district as a wheat raising country ami at Fort Ycnnilltn, fifteen hundredmiios north of the United States, txumdary is located a (lour mill where nil tho Hour samples of it have taken prircs when placed on exhibit ii.n at the grout fairs of tho world. It is found much rheapor to manufacture the flour in tho north thnn to Impi rt it In some of 1he northern forts elec -trie plants have Isvn installed nnd all modern conveniences have been utilized on land, lake and river to provocate the work of the company. Tho hifrtvMJi fiyfi's c/,Qthing and .miner's supplies at tho rea.r. fills section is flt-.tod up with nino of the silent &aji"- - trading company was tho outcome of a trading expedition which the mor (thantu had sent to tha Hudson bay country a yt��r or two previously. They hud spied out tho land and know that It would yield V bountiful fur harvest, which would bring abundant returns to them when placed on the market in London. The charier gave not only the fur trade but tho minerals In the district, the administration of Justice and tho power to "nuako war or peace with nc n-chrisiian peoples or princes."

The Duke of Mnrhnrougli was for a time governor after tho death of Prince Rupert, and when the amalgamation of the companies took place in 1821, Sir George Simpson was rhoson as its head. He was a young man, inexperienced, but possessed of wonderful organizing abll -Hy and soon had all wounds healed. So groat was his power that he was called the "Emperor of tho Fur Trade." Tho present governor of the company is Lord Htrulhcana, who spent many of his earlier yours us a Junior clerk of the roui|Hiny In the wilds of northouslorn Canada. The executive head of the company in Canada is C. C. Chipman, conuniss -loner, who, from his office in Winnipeg, regulates the work of tho eom-|wny over a district larger than half a dozen EurojMiun empires and it is thought his energy and ability during the |�isl fifteen years thatthe commercial enterprises of tho coun-pany have Injen prosecuted success -fully.

The grouter part of tho shares of tho $5,000,000 capital stock is held by shareholders In London. The country ever which the trade is carried on is divided into districts and sub-dis-trlcis.
