Canada Not Yet Discovered. Columbus, we learn, discovered America in 1492, and Champlain and Cartier later discovered what was then known as Canada, but, he re- marked, although a seeming paradox Canada has not yet been discovered to. this cday. We are prosecuting now the discovery of Canada in so far as we are disclosing and uncovering her hidden resources and possi- bilities. The vision of Canada in 1867 was most narrow and confined compared with the Canada of to-day in its ex- tent of territory, its possibilities and resources. We. have rolled back the scroll-farther north until the long narrow strip, stretching to ocean, to the magnifi- cent wide expanse of the country of to-day. This discovery is going on from year to year, and even now there is no one here that has an quate conception of what it will in the years to come. During the last forty years we have also been discovering ourselves. The horizon of the Canadian and the sense of his responsibilities arelarg- in a massed empire. The history of the nations has been parallel with the history of indus- tries, merging from small-disjointed states to larger important nations, and Britain cannot afford to disre- gard the history of the world. "It is wrench or check, without the loss oi autonomy we are a long way on the road towards imperialism.

I DOINGS AT GRASSY LAKE (From the Herald's staff reporter.) Grassy Lake, Oct. the ex- cellent results from this year's crop Grassy Lake is looking for a boom this fall. Business is very satisfac- tory at present, and the indications for the future are exceedingly en- couraging.

The people look to the provincial govern- ment for this-hut as yet practically nothing has been done. Its Voice Will G-row. be sure the voice of the north is weakj but the time wdiLcbme and that shortly, when the colonization and development of the north by "as- sistance from the provincial govern- ment will be a livedssue. "The Federal government has done much for northern Alberta, because there.the situation in. the north' is understood.. It has given-'the settlers postal service, telegraph service, sur- veyed the "country where settlement demands it, and improved the water- ways. It rests with the provincial government to improve the roads so as to bring the country in touch with the centres of civilization. Means Much to- Edmonton. "Edmonton's future is- dependent on the opening.up of the Peace River country. Hundreds of settlers would, go in there if the problem of trans- portation were rendered less acute. I visited nearly all the new settlers who have gone in this year and they are doing splendidly as far as pro- duction of marketable goods is con- cerned. Although arriving in the country late in the season, not a few have sown their fall wheat for next year's harvest." Mr. Cornwall was accompanied on his two thousand mile trip by Mrs. Cornwall. 1 J.
