Proc. 1891, A. 


Royal Society. The following address was then read by the President, Dr. G. M. Dawson, as follows : 

" May it please Your Excellency, 

" Twelve yvm have passed since the Royal Society was founded by the Marquess of Lome, who, 
during hu adininwlration, in this as in other matters showed the interest he took in the development 
of the art, literature and science of tho Dominion. Since he left the country, which he learned to 
love w sincerely and with whose prosperity ho has never failed to identify himself whenever the 
opportunity hM offered, Canada has had as his successors two distinguished noblemen, the Marquess of 
Lansdowne and the Earl of Derby, who encouraged by many judicious public utterances, and by all 
the means in their power, the objects of this relatively new society. 

It has now become the duty of the Royal Society to solicit from Your Excellency the same sym- 
pathetic interest which ii always received from previous Governors-General. In asking you to become 
their honorary president, in accordance with the provision of their constitution and act of incorpora- 
tion, the menibeis of the Royal Society point with satisfaction to the principles on which it has been 
organized the union of two race* in friendly rivalry for tho promotion of literature and science. The 
eleven large volumes ,,f transactions which have been already published, through the liberality of the 
Parliament of Canada, and whi.-h are now distributed in every country of the world, show that French 
a- well as English Canadian writer- and students have combined to stimulate scientific, historical and 
other incjuiries. and to aM'ord -nine interestini,' illustrations of tho accuracy and elegance with which 
the French language is studied and written in this dependency of the crown, whoso whole system of 
political and o, ial institutions rests on a broad basis of equality of races, and on tho desire to raise 
a national olilicc to which French a- well as Knglish Canadians can point with tho same confidence 
aii'l pride. 

It is alo with satisfaction that the Royal Society of Canada calls attention to the fact that since 
its establi-liment it has had the cordial cooperation in its work of all tho scientific, historical and 
oilu-r association* engaged in kindred studies. In this way the Royal Society has become, in a mea- 
sure, a literarv union of all those elements of our population which have for their stimulating objects 
the cultivation of letters and the elevation of our people aliovo those more material necessities which 
are naturally dominant in a country like this, still in the infancy of its development. In this respect, 
to quote the words of the Karl of Derby when he said farewell to ' his fellow members,' the Royal 
Society, ' has stepped in atid done good work, and has united those who were scattered by distance, 
ami who tind in the meeting of our Society a convenient opportunity of coming together for the 
exchanging of ideas and renewing of those friendships which, though perhaps only yearly meetings 
|ermit, are nevertheless enduring.' 

' Kver since Your Kxcellency and the Countess of Aberdeen have come into this country Canadians 
have bail many evidences of the lively interest which Your Excellencies take in every subject affect- 
ing not merely the material advantages of the Dominion, but tho culture and education of the people 
t large. Your Kxcellency has tho inestimable advantage of belonging to an estate of tho realm which 
ha given many great names to the political as well as literary history of England. Not least among 
lbo*v name* we tind that of your eminent grandfather who was once truly designated by a famous 
English poet, ' the travelled Thane, Athenian Aberdeen.' Canada has had already abundant evidence 
from yoor public utterances that Your Excellency inherits the tastes of your distinguished family, 
and that it will be your desire to develop among us that high culture without which no country can 
ever become truly great. 

" It in with deep interest that the Royal Society has noted the ability and energy with which Her 
Ex. ollency the Counter of Aberdeen is identifying herself with a national movement which must tend 
lo make tho women of Canada far more important factors than they are now in the social and intel- 
lectual life of thi new country. 

" With the*s few imperfect words the Royal Society now takes this the earliest opportunity its 
member* have bad, wince Your Excellency's assumption to office, to welcome you to this country, and 



to wish both yourself and the Countess of Aberdeen every success in your earnest efforts to promote 
the happiness of the Canadian people, and to give us additional evidence of how mufib. we owe to those 
distinguished men who are sent from time to time to preside over the administration of public affairs, 
and to represent that illustrious sovereign whose reign best illustrates the genius of the English race, 
and is coincident with that admirable system of government unde'r which Canada has attained hoi- 
present favourable position among the communities of the world." 

Lord Aberdeen replied to the address in the following terms : 

" Mr. President, Your Honour, 1 Ladies and Gentlemen, 

" Most cordially do I thank you for this loyal and kindly address. .Such a greeting, such a welcome, 
as it contains and conveys, coming as it does from a society so representative and comprehensive in 
its nature, and objects, cannot fail to be deeply valued. 

"Allow me, sir, before going further, to express my hearty endorsement of the allusions which 
this address contains to the founder of the Society, the Marquess of Lome. (Applause.) It is not neces- 
sary to have been in this country during the period of his official residence in it, to understand how 
deep and thorough was the practical interest which he displayed in all its affairs. We, in the old country, 
were not unaware of this fact, and since Lord Lome returned to Britain ho has, as you have pointed 
out, continuously displayed the same practical and permanent interest in all that concerns the welfare 
of this country; and it is obvious that a man in his position and with his experience of Canadian 
affairs can render no small services in the mother country by the information which ho can afford to 
the public there as to what is being done in the Dominion of Canada. In view, then, of the connec- 
tion of Lord Lorne and Her Royal Highness the Princess Louise with the formation of this Society, 
it is not surprising that you have alluded to it in this address, nor is it surprising that the interest 
which Lord Lorne and the Princess Louise have taken in the affairs of Canada since the time they 
were here, has had a special exemplification in connection with this particular Society. I had not 
been many weeks in Canada before I received a letter from Lord Lome with special reference to the 
Royal Society of Canada (applause) ; and that quickened the interest which undoubtedly in any case 
I should have felt with regard to its operations. 

The address is gratifying to me, not only on account of the sentiments which it contains, but also 
because of the practical information which it affords as to the work and operations of the Society, and 
I take leave to congratulate you, Dr. Dawson, and your colleagues and fellow-members upon the record 
which this Society can show. There is one point in its constitution and character which I cannot help 
thinking would in itself commend it to the grateful approval of all intelligent Canadians. I refer to 
the opportunity and incentive which it affords for harmonious co-operation between different branches 
and races of our community in the matter of promoting not only literature, art and science, but 
indirectly community of interest and good feeling. (Applause.) It must bo evident that when one 
section of the community shows respect and courtesy and consideration towards another section, they 
show respect to themselves and also to their country. It is obvious also that any deficiency in this 
respect is inconsistent with true patriotism, and with the dictates not only of courtesy and duty, but 
of common-sense (applause) ; and the community at large must be grateful for the example in the 
carrying out of this necessary principle which is afforded by your Society ; I say ' necessary,' because 
obviously any permanent want of co-operation, harmony and sympathy as regards the affairs of the 
country at large would be fatal to its true progress and happiness. (Applause.) 

" When we come to look in more detail at the operations of the Society, apart from its more general 
aspects, there is, as I have said, ample ground for satisfaction and for more than satisfaction, for con- 
gratulation, on the foresight and judicious action of those who took part in the original formation of 

: Among the large audience was His Honour the Lieutenant-Governor of Manitoba. 


the Society because when wo come to think of it, it implied no little confidence in the country that 
uch a Society as this should have boon originated at the time when it was started. As compared 
with the mother country and some other countries of the world, Canada is comparatively young, 
and .11 Ihe belter for her, because of the splendid prospects before her, and the vigour and vitality 

of her life. (Applause.) 

Of course it would bo impossible for me to dilate upon the various subjects which are 
embraced in your work, but I cannot help thinking that your programme for the next few days 
show,, how useful and effective, as well as deeply interesting, is the scope of your operations. This 
programme, which your esteemed honorary secretary tolls mo is larger than any previous programme, 
will !* in iuelfa manifesto of what the Royal Society mean-*, and of what it can do. 

" Then- is oihor jKiint in the address to which 1 cannot forbear from alluding. It appeired to 
mo I.. U extremely appropriate that a society which not only promotes but watchfully observes the 
literary and intellectual, as well a- the social development of the country, should have taken approv- 
ing note of the recent formation of the National Council of Women. (Applause.) Those who from 
the lir>t l-eli.-vcd that this movement was capable of exerting a very useful influence have had that 

opinion < tinned bv the progrc-* thus far of the Council ; and at the same time, I hope that those 

who at lir-t w.-re doubtful as to the practical utility of the movement, are already beginning to feel 
that pet-hap- their doubt-, or mi-giving*, if they hud any, were not well founded, and that the associa- 
tion l.a- before it a verv useful future. (Applause.) I cannot help thinking that this tendency to 
apprrciiti'-n will increase as tlie work goes on, at any rate, on the part of those who observe the 
matter with an open, intelligent and unprejudiced mind. Having alluded to this movement, I cannot 
retrain from exploring on my own behalf, and I am sure on behalf of Lady Aberdeen, the apprecia- 
tion with which we have listened to the special references to Her Kxcellcncy contained in this address. 
(Apphiiioc. i Y"ii can understand how much we value this token of confidence, good-will and encour- 
agement, and I tiu-i that \ on may not bo disappointed by fuither experience of our endeavours to 
take part with vii in the w.nk of this S x-iety. I -ay that, because, in accordance with your kind 
|,ii'li-al. I am olli iallv connected with the Society as honorary president, and I hope the 'Transac- 
tions' ..I the Suci.-ty whieh I have ha I the plea-ure of receiving from my friend l>r. Hour! not may bo 
regiinled it- not merely an otlicial gift, but one which I may carry home with mo to Scotland. 

1 In coiichiMon, I have only to offer my warmo-t and heartiest good wishes for a most successful 
aerie* of meetings This convention cannot fail to lie deeply interesting, and I believe a large amount 
of int'-ie-t will he manifested in the proceedings ; and I am sure that those who attend will bo heartily 
glad that they have done so." (I/nid applause.) 

Hi- Kxccllency then called upon the Honorary Secretary to read the following 

The Council of the Royal Society of Canada have the honour to make the following report: 


The Honorary Secretary who has been Kditorof the 'Transactions' for the post two years, makes 
the following report on the publication of the volume, on behalf of the Printing Committee, of which 
be U > member: 

Tbe eleventh volume of the ' Transactions ' appeared a month earlier than in previous years, and 
(now in course of distribution. It contains with the illustrations some 600 pages,and is consequently 
among the largest issued since 1882. In addition to the volume 3,400 copies of separate papers, or 
10 P*K** ' n ". nave been ii-sued to members and gone into general circulation. The cost of the 
volume bM been somewhat larger than was anticipated at first, on account of the numerous and 
espcn-ivo illustration* and of the necessity for the printing of the conclusion of the Abbe Cuoq's 


valuable work on the Algonquin tongue. The full page illustrations and the largo maps apart from 
several small cuts in the text are twenty-two in number; the valuable paper on Canal* by Mr. T. C. 
Reefer requiring elaborate plans. The cost of circulating the lenth volume last year was increased 
by the fact that it had to bo forwarded by the Society itself to members of the two Houses of Parlia- 
ment on account of it having been ready only after the exceptionally early prorogation. In previous 
years the distribution was made while Parliament was in session, and the members consequently able 
to transmit their own copies direct through the Post Office. This year an experiment has been made 
in the publication of the first number of a series of historical monographs of the Royal Society, with 
the view of meeting the necessity of reaching the public in a more convenient and readable form than 
is offered in the large quarto volume of 'Transactions' whoso circulation and value are chiefly confined 
to libraries and societies for purposes of reference. The literary sections have heretofore been placed 
at a considerable disadvantage compared with the scientific sections who prefer the largo quarto book 
on account of the facilities it offers for illustrations. In some cases whore maps are necessary the 
quarto form may be available even for monographs in the English and French sections, but these 
cases are exceptional, and a desire is generally folt to give larger publicity to valuable work of the 
section than is possible by means of the quarto volume. Authors can toll from their own experience 
that the large quarto size is a barrier to the general sale of a book even though popular in its scope 
and object. Valuable monographs have been refused to the Society simply on this account, and the 
effectiveness of the literary sections consequently impaired. The scientific sections have so far not 
only taken up the larger share of the text of the, but have also required fully four-fifths (if 
the expensive and numerous illustrations that have appeared and cost upwards of $3.000 since 1S82-3. 
Under these circumstances the scion tide sections may fairly be called upon to assist the literarv 
sections in a matter of so much interest to them. These monographs will be placed in the principal 
book stores by the publishers. It is hoped that the experiment of the past year will be such as to 
induce the Society to continue it from time to time in the ease of valuable monographs which are 
likely to meet with popular favour. It is proposed that the author should receive any sum that may 
remain over from the sales after the expenses of publication have been reimbursed to the Society. 
The Society runs little or no risk in such a venture, which can rarely cost more than an illustrated 
paper in a scientific section. It is suggested that this matter bo loft whore it properly rests, in the 
hands of the Printing Committee. They can make from year to year such arrangements as are con- 
sonant with the pecuniary and other interests of the Society. The presence on this committee of Dr. 
S. E. Dawson, the Queen's Printer, and a former publisher of important works, will enable the com- 
mittee to como to a safe conclusion. 

"The following suggestions are also made with reference to the ' Transactions' : 

" That the volume be kept as near as possible to six hundred pages, and that the amount set 
apart for maps and illustrations do not exceed five hundred dollars, unless in exceptional cases which 
may be considered and approved by the Printing Committee. 

" That the amount of copies of the ' Transactions' bound in cloth be limited to eight hundred instead 
of over twelve hundred as at present, to be forwarded to the great libraries of Europe and Ameiica, 
and to the more important institutions in thoso countries. The remaining four hundred and odd copies 
can bo inclosed in strong boards for transmission to exchanges. At present very few bound copies 
are received from American and European societies, and it seems an unnecessary expense to circulate 
the ' Transactions' in so expensive a form in all cases. This saving can go to the equalizing of expen- 
diture and revenue and to the larger circulation of useful monographs. 

" As the number of papers appears increasing each session, and several are now left unavoidably 
over since last year, it is suggested that each section carefully select the papers to be published in 
full, and in less important cases print abstracts. It is also necessary that all manuscripts should be 
type-written or at least written in a clear, legible hand, and kept flat in all cases. The expense of 
printing papers has been increased by the illegibility or obscurity of the manuscript, and the con- 
sequent difficulty of proof-reading " 



Tho account.-, for the publication of the volume nro herewith submitted after examination and 
auditing by the Accountant of the Department of Public Printing. The contractors for printing 
intend providing new type for the next volume. Arrangements have also been made with the well 
known antiquarian bookseller in London, licrnard Qtiuritch, to act as agent for all the publications 
of the SiH-iety, and hi* last catalogue has full page advertisements of the principal papers that have 
nji|K-arol in the ' Transactions ' for the |>;i-l twelve years.

The Council of the Royal Society some time ago invited several representative gentlemen in the 
United States to attend the present meeting and take part in its deliberations, and in those discus- 
sions of the respective sections which may be of especial interest to them. The following have 
accepted : 

Professor O. C. Marsh, of Yale University, President of the National Academy of Sciences. 
Mr. S. 11. Scudder, of the Geological Survey of the United States, and member of the American 
Academy of Arts and Sciences, Boston. 

Dr. Justin Winsor, Librarian of Harvard University. 

Mr. B. E. Fcrnow, Chief of the Forestry Division of the Department of Agriculture, Washing- 
ton, D.C. 

The co-operation of these distinguished gentlemen must do much to promote the usefulness of 
this Society, and tend to keep up that feeling of friendship which should animate the peoples of the 
United States and Canada in all their relations, whether commercial, social or intellectual. 


In accordance with the practice of the Royal Society since its foundation, invitations were sent 
to the various literary and scientific associations of the provinces, asking them to co-operate as usual 
in the labours of this Society, by sending delegates to take part in this meeting, and make reports of 
their work during the year. The following is a list of such societies, and of the names of the dele- 
gates so far as reported to the Honorary Secretary :

The attendance of Fellows for the past four meeting-; has boon exceedingly irregular, owing 
chiefly to the facts that the membership is scattered over so largo an area of territory and the expense 
of travelling is a serious matter to some persons. Professional and business engagements, necessarily 
of primary importance, have also constantly intervened to prevent I bat attendance we sbonM like to 
see at our meetings. Kvery man belonging to the Royal Society is busily employed in scientific, 
educational, or journalistic pursuits, or in oflicial life, and it is often at much inconvenience and 
expense that many of our members havccome to Ottawa to discharge their obligations to the Society. 
It is also necessary to remember that several men who have done good work iii science and literature, 
like Mr. Thomas Kirby, the Abbe Cuoq and Horatio Halo, now feel the burden of the years of a very 
active and industrious life, and are unable to venture on the risks and excitement of travel. At the 
present time Archbishop Bdgin, who was always an active member before the assumption of his high 
office, is in Rome and not likely to return in time for this meeting. Mr. Ramsay Wright, who deli- 
vered one of the public lectures last spring, is now in Genoa. Mr. Justice Routhior is engaged in 
his judicial duties. Dr. Loudon, President of Toronto University, cannot possibly leave his onerous 
duties during the meeting. The Abbd Laflammo is busily employed in investigating the causes of the 
serious calamity which occurred so recently at Saint- Albans, in the county of Portncuf. Mr. Carp- 
mael is in bad health and on his way to England. Several other members have sent excuses regret- 
ting and explaining their unavoidable absence. On the whole, it must be admitted, the attendance is 
above the average of that common to scientific and other societies of America, where the membership 
is far larger. Whilst recognizing this fact as satisfactory, we must not lose sight of the indifference 
or apathy that appears to bo shown by one or two Fellows who never attend or even send excuses. It is 
hardly necessary to say that it is most desirable that this Society should have its annual meetings as 
fully attended as possible in order that its discussions and proceedings may be conducted with oven 
greater energy than at present, and its influence in all the centres of thought and activity increased 
by the presence of men anxious to promote the objects the Society has in view. It was with the 
object of extending its usefulness that provision was made some time ago for increasing the member- 
ship of a section from twenty to twenty five in the course of five years. It is now proposed that the 
rules of the Society should be rigidly carried out, and that each section should carefully revise its 

Proc. 1894, B. 


membership and consider whether any member who has failed to attend for three years in succession 
without presenting a paper, or assigning reasons in writing satisfactory to the Society, shall not be 
called upon to resign or else give some evidence of his desire to assist iu the work of the Society. It 
in suggested by the Council that each section consider if it has any such cases, and instruct the 
secretary to notify the indifferent members of the rule, and to express the hope lhat they will hence- 
forth identify themselves closely with the labours of the Society. It is also suggested that those 
gentlemen whose years preclude their attendance should bo placed on the retired list. Active mem- 
berhip is absolutely necessary to the usefulness of a society like this. 


The Honorary Secretary forwarded (o the World's Fair at Chicngo, at the request of the com- 
missioners, a full sot, bound in morocco, of the ' Transactions of the Royal Society of Canada ' as well 
n.H a special copy of 'Capo Breton and Its Memorials,' one of the publications of the Society. A 
medal has been awarded the Society for the typographical and generally meritorious character of 
theito works. 


It i- proposed I" add to the twelfth volume an index of all the subjects, as well as of the authors 
who-c name* appear in what will thru I HI considered and named the First Series of Transactions, viz., 
from ono in twelve, inelushc. Surh an index has now become a necessity to all those who wish from 
time I" time to consult a series which deals with a great variety of subjects, urchieological, ethnological, 
historical, literary, and scientific, to which at present reference can be made only with great difficulty 
and I"Cs of time 


During the pat I year the Honorary Secretary, in accordance with the recommendation made in 
two report- of the <' uincil, mailed circulars to all the Fellows, asking for a complete list of all their 
published work-, memoir-, and essays, with a view to the printing of a bibliography of the Society. 
Answers have been received from the greater number of the members and it is only the indifference, 
or |n>rliaps pics-ing business, of a very few gentlemen that has prevented the appearance in the last 
volume of what must prove to lie of much interest and value to all engaged in scientific, historical or 
literary pursuit*. At the pre.-ent time, there is no work which gives the information which will bo 
contained in the promised bibliography. Under these circumstances it is hoped that those members 
who have not yet complied with the circular in question will lose no time in sending the necessary 
information to the Honorary Secretary, who proposes to publish the notes in the forthcoming volume, 
t is also suggested that every member should make his answer as complete as possible, and not 
throw upon the Secretary the responsibility and labour of searching for information when it can be 
mont cattily and accurately given by the author himself. 


The Secretary has received the following communication from Professor McLeod on a subject 
of intercut to the Society : 

" Mc(JiLL COLLEGE OBSERVATORY, Montreal, May 16th, 1894.

DtA Sit, In reply to your inquiry as to the progress of the determination of the longitude of

Ur place* s obtained from various catalogues, was completed in June last. The resulting 

together with all the result* of clock comparisons wore immediately forwarded to the 


Astronomer Royal. From these quantities and the corresponding results obtained by the English 
observers the following provisional values of the longitudes of the several stations are derived :

" This value for Montreal is slightly (0'15 see.) in excess of the value hitherto accepted. 
" Early last winter the corrected star places were received from Greenwich and from these the 
clock errors have been entirely recomputed. The final results are now in the hands of the Astronomer 
Royal, and I hope to be able to announce the new value of the longitude of Montreal during the pre- 
sent meeting of the Royal Society.

It is satisfactory to learn from the report of the Department of Marine for 1893-4, that progress 
continues to be made with the survey of tides and currents in Canadian waters. This, report 
contains a very full and interesting account (see Appendix A) of all work clone up to January last, 
by Mr. William Bell Dawson, O.K., who has been appointed to take charge of this important branch 
of the public service. From this report wo make the following extracts as quite sufficient for our 
purpose of keeping the members of the Royal Society conversant with the progress of observations 
in which they have taken the deepest interest from its very inception : 

" Tide Gauge Statio7is Established up 1o December, 1893. 

" St. John, N.B. Gauge placed against wharf in harbour. D. L. Ilutchinson, meteorological 
observer, in charge. In operation since December, 1892. 

" Southwest Point. Anticosti Crib erected for gauge. II. Pope, lighthouse-keeper, in charge. 
Observations commenced July, 1893. 

" St. Paul Island, O.B. Gauge on a crib built into an opening between rock clillk John Camp- 
bell, lighthouse-keeper, in charge. Observations commenced September, 1893. 

" Magdalen Islands At Grindstone, on east side of the islands. Gauge in a well in a timber break- 
water for better protection. A. Le Bourdais, local superintendent of telegraphs, in charge. 
Observations commenced October, 1893. 

" Quebec Gauge placed at the LeVis Dry Dock. U. Valiquet, engineer of Dry Dock, in charge. 
Observations commenced November, 1893. 

" Father Point (Unfinished.) Gauge to be placed in a well sunk on shore, and tide to be led to it 
by a trench and piping. 

" Completion of the Survey. 

"The time required for the survey of the currents on both the Atlantic and Pacific coasts will be 
about six or eight years, on the basis of an annual expenditure as indicated below, and the average 
annual cost should be fully covered by the amount of the present estimate; with the exception of the 
sum allowed for the use of the steamer, which in future years should be available for the whole 
season. With this proviso, it will be possible in the time stated to survey the currents in the open 
waters traversed by the ocean-going vessels, and on the main routes leading to our principal harbours ; 
but it does not contemplate an examination in detail of the currents in the less important bays and 
straitt-. The amount of the estimate also includes the additional tide gauges to be established in the 
first two seasons in advance of the survey of the currents in each region. The margin corresponding 
to this in later years can be used to carry forward the tidal work, until the completion of the survey 


of the current* ; when the remaining tidal work can be completed satisfactorily on the basis of a 
much reduced expenditure. 

" Summary. 

" The following summary may be given in conclusion, with special reference to the work for the 

coming season : 

" 1. The representations ma<lo in pant yean have shown the imperative need of obtaining full 
information a* to tlic tides and currenU in Canadian waters; and this is now generally admitted and 

'2. A practical commencement has been niiide by the erection of five tidal gauges now in 
npeiaiion, mid also l>y the publication of tide tables for the port of Halifax by this department. 

It It is now promised to complete tho series of tide gauges required in the Gulf, and on the 
Atlantic coast ; ninl also to commence the survey of the currents in the Gulf of St. Lawrence. 

I. The credit of $10,000 voted by Parliament, was for the erection of tide gauges and the reduc- 
tion of tin- tidal observations; and did not include provision for the survey of the currents. 

.'>. It mav al-o In- noted that out of the two annual credits of $10,000 each, madeavailable up to 
June. I-'.':!, little over one fourth was actually expended on the work.

The Hoyal Society of Canada has received from the Council of the Scientific Alliance of New 
York, a copy of the following resolution which is referred to the consideration of the Third and 
Fourth Sections : 

" Rnolcrd, That the Scientific Alliance of New York, consisting of the members of the New York 
Academy of Science*, the Torrcy Botanical Club, the Now York Microscopical Society, the Linmean 
Society of New York, the New York Mincralogical Club, the Now York Mathematical Society, the 
New York Section of the American Chemical Society, and the Now York Entomological Society, 


hereby appeals to the several societies and associations with which it is in correspondence, both in 
this country and in foreign lands, to memorialize the postal authorities of their respective governments 
in behalf of a reduction of postage upon scientific specimens, and to use their influence in every prac- 
ticable way to further this object, so important to the interests of scientific study and research, with 
special reference to obtaining some united action among the governments associated in the Interna- 
tional Postal Union, at the approaching conference of representatives of that body." 


The Council have received a circular from the Royal Society of London, calling attention to the 
proposed compilation, under its direction, of a catalogue containing the titles of all scientific publica- 
tions, whether printed in periodicals or independently. This catalogue, it is suggested, should lie 
issued as rapidly as possible, and arranged, not only according to authors' names, but also according 
to the subject-matter. As the preparation arid publication of such a catalogue is beyond the power 
and means of any single society, the President and Council of the English Royal Society have 
appointed a committee ' to inquire into and report upon the feasibility of such a catalogue being 
compiled through international co-operation." The Council refers the circular to the consideration of 
the two scientific sections for their report. 


A number of literary men, some of whom have no connection with the Royal Society, have 
asked the Honorary Secretary to direct the attention of the First and Second Sections of French and 
English Literature to the advisability of having published in the 'Transactions' a short critical review 
of those Canadian books which have appeared in the course of the year and are deserving of notice 
and encouragement. History, poetry, romance, and political science, might be included in this 
review, which, of course, could be extended to pure science. The object would bo to stimulate 
literary taste by that judicious criticism which is rarely been in the Canadian press. As things 
are now, we see either the indiscriminate eulogy of zealous friends or the wholesale advertising of 
publishers who appear to have literary editors ir. their employ, whose special duty is to insert notices 
in the press. In a country like this, where a newspaper's staff is fully occupied in editorial and other 
ordinary journalistic work, it is only at rare intervals, and in a very few journals, wo can see, or expect 
criticism of new books in the true sense of the term. Newspaper notices for they cannot be digni- 
fied, as a rule, with the name of reviews consequently only rank as so many advertisements. In this 
respect the press of Australia shows a superiority over that of Canada, speaking generally. If the 
Royal Society could induce some of its members to devote themselves to a judicious criticism of new 
Canadian books, which could be read at our own general meetings, it is quite possible a positive 
encouragement would be given to our nascent literature. At all events it would be an advantage to 
have published in this way what would be at least a yearly review of Canadian publications of merit, 
which would enable the world outside of Canada to have a fairly accurate idea of the progress of 
Canadian letters. The subject is at all events deserving of the earnest consideration of the two sec- 
tions under whose purview it seems naturally to fall, and the Council therefore refers it to them for 
their report. It is suggested that each section should obtain the assistance of a member of each sec- 
tion to take charge of the matter as editor, and to obtain the co-operation, when necessary, from time 
to time, of other members in his section. 


From time to time we hear of the establishment of local historical societies in different sections 
of the Dominion. For instance, we notice the organization in the city of Belleville of the Bay of 
Quint^ Loyalist Historical Society, which ought to be of much value in preserving the records, 
written and oral, of a district which has peculiarly interesting associations of the early history of the 


province of Ontario. Similar organisations now exist in other parta of Ontario, and the Royal 
Society will be glad to promote thoir objects by every means in it* power. Ite 'Transactions ' are 
always open to the publication of report* of their work from year to year. Such societies should 
make it their s|>ocial duty to press on the municipal councils of their respective counties the value 
of Humiliating the compilation and publication of local or county histories, which must always have 
positive value for the historians of our general history, who have now to go through a great deal of 
research and drudgery, which they would bo saved in the way suggested. Such local histories, if 
compiled in a conscientious and patient spirit of inquiry, and with some enthusiasm for the subject, 
niUHt always win the attention of those who have an interest in the past. The time has gone by 
when it ran U- Miid that Canadian history, us a rule, is devoid of deep interest. It is not always the 
subject, but rather its writers that arc responsible for an opinion which has no foundation in reality. 
Fr-'in K. d Kivcr and Mackinaw to Louisbotirg there arc to bo found themes which may inspire men 
and women to imitate the example of r'rnncis I'arkman in history, and Mary (lartwell Cathcrwood 
in romance. 


In i his roimci-iion reference may be male to the fact that for several years past there has been a 
inovciiu ni, nut very weighty so far, which has lor its object the production of a short Canadian 
hi-torv wh:rh won], I U> |) >niinin in iis -cope and interest, and written with that catholicity of view 
which cmild make it a text book in all the public schools of this country. At the recent meeting of 
tin- National Council i.f Women, established under such favourable conditions under the presidency of 
Her Kx' cllencv the Counts- of Aberdeen, the matter came up for discussion, and several ladies 
interested in tl.c practical work of education, or in the intellectual development of the youth of this 

country. expr I view.-, some of iheni a little divergent, as to the practicability of the scheme. In 

refei rin_- now to the -ul.jcct. I he ( 'ounril of the Royal Society may say that they have no other desire 

ii to stimulate the ell 'it- of all historical .-Indents in this country, and they would gladly welcome 

the publication o| n Work of moderate compass to meet what is probably a want in the public schools. 

In -hort. -uch a hi-tnry. to (jiioie the National Council, as is "calculated to foster in the minds and 

heart* of i he yniing in Canada a spirit of loyally and enthusiasm, a love of their country and a pride 

<>i,c can c|uiio understand that the ehort school histories which are used in some of 

x inces are not always calculated to encourage a love for Canadian history or stimulate Cana- 

Jian patriotism. Hut the very dulness of these .-crappy, weary histories, of itself is an evidence that 

cannot It always- pn,duce<l to order like so many circulars, to meet tho demands of publish- 

the necessities nf an educational department. Tho writing of a good history, large or small, 

spontaneous, but the icsult of years of thorough research, and a deep love for the subject. 

Cenius of any kind cannot be stimulated by mere prizes or lotteries, and it is safe to bay that there 

lamoii- writers who have entered on their career by answering advertisements. When wo 

consider the excellent work that has already been accomplished, both in French and English Canada, 

L- writing of large histories is concerned, we may have every confidence that a small text 

I in style, correct in narration, and impartial in judgment, will sooner or later appear 

naturally, without any of that artificial stimulus which is rather calculated to develop mediocrity. 

r knowledge in a far more important factor with a true historical student like Parkman, 

, or Ca<.grain, or Suite, than the incidental advantages offered by a committee of judges, 

>t always selected with discretion or comprehension of their capacity for a decision. In tho mean- 

Umo, while this nhori school history is being developed in tho mental crucible of some industrious 

it may bo suggested that the persons at the head of our educational systems can advantage- 

otuly avail UicmMlvea of the work of present historians. A work by Mr. Lamed, the first volume 

, ban boon issued with the title " A Uistory for Ready Reference and Topical Reading," may 

'me of our educators an idea how the labours of Canadian historians can be well adapted to tho 

.ional requiremonu of the Dominion. Mr. Larned's plan, for instance, is to give a historical 


sketch of Canada compiled from the best writers on the subject. In this way, every author of note 
is made to contribute to the different epochs or periods of our history, and a most readable and 
valuable compilation prepared for the use of students. It represents the mental effort* of the most 
thorough and cultured historical writers, far more so assuredly than the inferior abstracts that are 
dignified among us by the name of school histories abstracts too often destitute of any redeeming 
literary merit. 


While giving expression to these opinions with respect to (ho writing of a readable general 
history for the purpose in question, the Council of the Royal Society feel that they can heartily sym- 
pathize with the desire of the National Council to see introduced into the public schools of Canada. 
as soon as it is compiled by some qualified person, a small and intelligible text- book, ' having fin- its 
object to fix in the minds of the boys and girls of the Dominion a just conception of their rights and 
duties as citizens." "Probably never before," to quote again the apt words of the resolution of the 
National (, "was there such urgent need for a clear understanding of the principles ot our 
government." Wo agree with the National Council that such studies arc of primary importance, 
and cannot be impressed at too early an ago on the youth, on whom rest the future happiness and 
stability of this rising nation. 


The Council refer the Jioyal Society and all tho-e interested in the collection of historical archives 
to the following interesting report by Dr. Marmette, assistant archivist of the Dominion . 

" The importance of that branch of the public service which has had charge of tin. 1 historical 
archives of Canada since its foundation in 1872, has been shown more clearly year by year, with the 
steady accumulation of now and numerous copies of unpublished documents which come to us from 
England and France. Hardly a day passes without our receiving from all parts of Canada and the 
United States requests for information on certain questions to which we can alone give a satisfactory 
reply, if not always a complete solution, in view of the fact that we alone in America possess the 
copies of unpublished historical documents relating to matters of war, politics and diplomacy all'ect- 
ing these two countries and England. 

" Apart from the copy of the Bouquet collection, which comprises thirty written volumes and 
covers the years from 1757 to 17U5, and the Haldimand papers, which take up one hundred and thirty- 
two volumes, and include the historical records from 1758 to 1787, wo have at present in hand three 
hundred and sixty-four volumes copied from the State papers of the Colonial Record Office at London, 
and containing the correspondence between the English authorities, the governors and oilier official 
personages in Canada, commencing with 17GO and coming down to 1831. The copying of these 
interesting documents is now going on in London under the direction of Mr. Brymner, who has 
nearly closed the investigations which are necessary for the guidance of the copyists charged with 
completing a collection which is unique in America. 

" At the same time there is going on in London, the copying, commenced this year, of the War 
Office papers, of which we have already fifteen volumes, as well as of the Board of Trade papers, of 
which wo have now twenty-nine volumes collected. 

" Besides this collection, so rich in new material relating to the history of the country under 
English dominion, we have also the advantage of possessing one thousand and sixty-three manu- 
script volumes of military records all quite original touching the public events and military works 
during the occupation of Canada by the English troops from 1760 to 18(57. 

" The French portion of the archives somewhat behind for reasons beyond control comprises a 
hundred volumes of manuscript relating to the ' terrier', and the judgments of the inteudants under 
the French regime, as well as the commencement of the correspondence between the court of Franco 
and the French governors and intendants of Canada. 


' Tho arrangement* continue for copying in Paris the numerous State papers relative to our 
history, which arc found, for the greater part, in the archives of the new Minister of Colonies (for- 
merly Minister of Marine and Colonies), where I had the advantage of examining and cataloguing 
these .|-M inn. -nt- -Kim- years ago. 

" I am referring here only to the manuscript section of our archives, and leave out of consider- 
ation our consulting library of printed books, which already comprises several thousand volumes. 

' It in much to be desired that the government soon take measures to provide the department 
with accommodation more suitable for a library, already so important in the way of manuscripts and 
printed books. Tho three small rooms set apart for the archives are already so encumbered that we 
are at -.trait* to place the now collections that we are constantly receiving. Indeed, the dampness of 
the quarter*, which are situated in a basement, is injurious not only to the health of the staff, but also 
to the preservation of the valuable documents which are under its care." 

The Council hope that the Government of the Dominion will soon find itself in a position to 
provide Miitahlc accommodation for liooks and manuscripts collected at such largo expense, and so 
invaluable to the country, and indeed to the world at large. If it were possible to build a national 
inn-. -ma worthy of the I) .minion, then a section of it could bo properly devoted to this service. In 
the meantime care should bo taken to prevent any damage or deterioration lo these valuable manu- 
script-, and to enable the stall' to make the best possible arrangements for purposes of reference. 


The w.-l] known historical writer, ami a member of this Society, the Rev. Dr. Moses Harvey, of 
St. .|..lin's, Newfoundland, has addressed a letter to the Honorary Secretary requesting him to call the 
attention of the Council, and through them of the Royal Society, to an interesting event in the his- 
tory .if tlii- continent and of the Dominion, the four hundredth anniversary of which will occur three 
hence. It \vu- on a .1 unc. lay in 1 1'.(7. live years after Columbus had landed on an island of the 
We-t I i.dian archipelago, and given a new dominion to Spain, thai a Venetian, John Cabot, in a Bristol 
-hip manned by Kngli-h sailor-., -ailed under the authority of Henry VII. of Knglund, to find a north- 
wi tern passage to the riches of A-ia, in emulation of the discovery of the great Genoese. Much 
controversy has gone on lor year- with respect to this memorable voyage, and the landfall actually 
made in ni tbea-tern America by Cabot. |-\ir years this landfall was believed to boBonavista on the 
eastern coast <.| Newfoundland, but latterly a dispute has grown up between the advocates of Cape 
North in Cupe Breton, as it is shown in a recent monograph on that island in the 'Transactions of the 
Royal Society, 1 and the advocates of some point between Cape Chidley and the headlands of Sandwich 
Bay on the coast of Labrador, as il is warmly argued by Henry Harrisso in his latest work. In 1498, 
another voyage was made by John Calot to North America, al.-o under English auspices, and the best 
authority goes to show that the landfall on that occasion must bo placed south of the first, and the 
exploration embraced the northeast coast of the present United States as far as Florida. The famous 
map of 15iK) of the Bincayan pilot, Juan do laCowi the first map we have of the new world clearly 
give* evidence of thenc English discoveries in its delineation of a continuous coast line of a continent 
which at the north contains a line of English flags, and the inscription Mar discubierta por los fngleses 
nd a cape at the extreme north called Cauo de ynglaterra. In the Ribero map of 15'.'9 we have 
evidently also reference to the English discoveries under Cabot, in the inscription applied to a 
northern country. The planisphere of 1544 ascribed to Sebastian Cabot, and discovered in 1843 in 
Germany, in the chief authority on which the advocates of Capo North as the landfall of 1497 mainly 
rt their claim, and it is difficult to set aside the strength of the claim while the authenticity of this 
map can be successfully or, at least, strongly defended, as it assuredly appears to be the case so far 
M the argument has advanced. But this is not the place for an examination of the respective conten- 
Jonsina cartigraphical and historical controversy which waxes very warm at times, and make* 
Henry Harris* an advocate rather than a judge. Its nature has already been reviewed in the mono- 


graph previously mentioned, as well as in an elaborate paper which is to be read by Dr. S. E. Dawson 
before the second section at the present meeting. One fact is quite certain, that it is to John Cabot 
must be given the honour of having first landed and planted the English flag on the eastern coast of 
North America, very probably at Cape North in the Dominion, or at some other point of British 
North America. The landfall may be in dispute, but not the fact of the discovery, under English 
auspices, of eastern North America, and of the Atlantic seaboai-d of the United Stales. If Columbus 
was honoured in 1893, why should not John Cabot also receive his meed of recognition three years 
hence for his discovery which gave England her first claim to territory in the New World, of which 
the Dominion of Canada, and Newfoundland forms so largo and important a portion at the present 
day ? The matter is submitted to the consideration of the Second Section of Knglish Literature and 
History, as well as to that of the various historical societies of the provinces of the Dominion. Of 
the claims of John Cabot to honour from Englishmen and other colonial descendants in North America, 
Mr. Clements R. Markham the eminent geographical scholar, says with truth, " John Cabot was tlie 
great navigator, the explorer and pioneer, who lighted Knglish enterprise across the Atlantic. He 
was second only to his illustrious countryman as a discoverer, ami his place is in the forefront <>f the 
van of the long and glorious roll of leaders of Knglish maritime exploration." 


Since the last meeting of the Royal Society we have to record the death of one of it> most hon- 
oured corresponding members, Francis 1'arkman, whose great series of historical narratives on 
" France and England in North America," a scries of eleven volumes has connected his name to 
all time with the annals of the continent, and especially with those of the I>ominion of Canada. It 
was he who, above all other writers, first showed the world the piediroMjiie and even dramatic 
features of the two hundred and sixty years or so that had passed since I'e.Monts landed at Sic. Croix, 
and Champlaiu founded the ancient capital of Quebec. Dulncss and Canadian history were too often 
considered synonymous, and with some reason, before the publication of his " Pioneers of France ir. 
the New World "in 1865, or fourteen years after the appearance of his ''Conspiracy of Pontiac," 
the first being the beginning, and the latter the end of his series of narratives. The only meritorious 
history of the French regime that had appeared before 18(J5 was that by (larneau, a French Cana- 
dian; but its circulation was chiefly among his compatriots, and the imperfect and ill done Knglish 
translation that had been made did not tend to make him popular among Knglish speaking peoples. 
The first volume of Ferland's excellent work had boon printed in 1HIM, and the second in 1S(55. but it 
is safe to say that very few persons, even in Knglish Canada, are yet awaieof its value. In the I'nihd 
States neither Garneau nor Ferland had any readers except a few historical students. Hut despite 
their undoubted merit, these French Canadian authors can never captivate the reader like Parkman 
with his power of vivid narrative, his charm of style, his enthusiasm for his subject, his remarkable 
descriptions of historic scenes and places, which are so many pen pictures of the past. To his great 
work, which he conceived in the commencement of his manhood, he devoted his life with a rare 
fidelity, industry, and patience that have never been surpassed in the domain of letters. The record 
of those years during which he laboured to accomplish what he made essentially his mission is one of 
struggle not with ill fortune, or straitened means, for ho was happily well supplied with the world's 
goods, but with physical infirmity to which many other men of less indomitable purpose would have 
yielded. The story of his life should be often told to animate the youth of our country to patient 
effort, whatever may be their vocation in life. " He who shall tell that story of noble endeavour," 
writes one who knew him well, Justin Winsor, whom the Royal Society gladly welcomes to-day, 
"must carry him into the archives of Canada and France, and portray him peering with another's 
eyes. He must depict him in his wanderings over the length and breadth of a continent wherever a 
French adventurer had set foot. He must track him to many a spot hallowed by the sacrifice of a 
Jesuit. He must plod with him the portage where the burdened trader had hearkened for the lurk-

ing savage. He must stroll with him about tho ground of ambush which had rung with the death- 
knell, and must survey the 6eld or defile where tho lilies of Franco had glimmered in the smoke of 
battle, lie who would represent him truly must tell of that hardy courage which the assaults of 
pain could never lesson. He must describe tho days and months, and even years when the light of 
the sun was intolerable. Ho must speak of tho intervals, counted only by half hours, when a secretary 
could read to him. Such were the obstacles which for more than fifty years gave his physicians little 
hope " But nowhere in tho pages of his books, so distinguished by bright, graphic narrative, is there 
any evidence of depression of spirits arising from that suffering which would have daunted so many 
men. and infu.-cd a certain vein of melancholy into their writings. Tho genius of his intellect, stimu- 
late! by a doop enthusiasm for the work in hand, always carried him far above all such considera- 
tions of Ixxlily suffering. After all. in a sense, this same spirit of devotion to a worthy object was 
the influence that animated the Jesuit missionaries whose story he has so eloquently and accurately 
told. It was the same spirit of patience and endurance that gave La Salle tho courage to overcome 
the dittii-ultio- which personal enemies, us well as obdurate nature so long interposed as he followed in 
the p:ith lir-t broken bv J"lliet and Manjuctte. and at last found his way down the Mississippi to tho 
<iii!t of Me\ii-n. A groat book and ho certainly wrote such a book is as much an event in history' 
as the dNonvery of new land or river. Much happier, however, than tho heroic men of whom ho writes, 
he lived long enough I" see ihe results of his laborious life crowned amid the plaudits of tho world. 
It is an opinion now generally entertained that among the historians of tho century not one can sur- 
pass him in clearness of stylo, in that charm which ho throws around tho lightest incident, in tho 
fidelity with which he used the material he accumulated at such groat expense and despite so many 
difficulties, in that disregard of all sentiment when it became a question of historic truth ; but there is 
another and most conspicuous feature of his works which has certainly been never equalled by any 

lisiorian. European or American, anil that is his ability to bring before the reader tho true natural 
characteristic- of the scenes of his historic narrative. Every place which forms the subject of bis 
history boars the impress of an enthusiastic student of nature in her varied guise of one who knows 
every rock, stream, lake, and mountain associated with the incident ho relates. Whilst everywhere 
in his narrative we see the skill and lidolity of a true historian, at tho same time we can note tho love 
of the man for the forest and river, for trees and (lowers, and all the natural beauties of tho country 
through which he leads us in the movement of his history we recognize one who has studied Indian 
hie in tho wigwam and by the camp tires, who is a poet by tho power of his imagination, and his 
depth of admiration for t.od's creations, who is a political student who can enter into the animating 
purpose and motives of ambitious priests and statesmen. A great historian must in these days com- 
bine all such i|ii.ilii jes if he is to rai-e his work above the level of the more annalist. It may be said 
that his love of tho picturesque was at times too dominant in his narrative, but if that be a fault or 
weakliest, it is one which the general reader of history would wish to see more frequently imitated. 
vcnU, it cannot l said that the imaginative or dramatic faculty of his nature ever led him to 
conceal the truth as ho read it, or to attempt to deceive his readers by so obscuring his facts as to 
lead us to wrong inferences. He had the love of the Puritan for truth and none of that narrowness 
or bigotry that too often made tho Puritans unsafe teachers when it was a matter of opinion or feel- 
ing. A few of iw, especially in French Canada, will differ from some of his opinions and conclusions 
on moot-point* of history, but no one will doubt his sincerity or desire to be honest. In paying this 
tribute to Francis Parkman the Royal Society of Canada, composed of English and French Canadians, 
meeting on a common platform of historic study and investigation, need only add that its members 
neognttc in him a writer of whom not simply New England, but Canada is equally proud, since 

leraturc knows no geographical or sectional limits, and though we cannot claim him as one of our- 
m>lve* by birth, we feel ho became a Canadian by the theme he made his own, and by the elevation 
and mtermtbe ha* given to the study of tho history of this Dominion. 



The Council, in concluding this report, must once more press on the members of the Society the 
obligation that rests upon them as upon every similar organization to show their sympathetic interest 
in the work of the Society, not only by a regular attendance but by their contributions to the dif- 
ferent departments of literary and scientific labour that the 'Transactions ' open to them. So far the 
results that have been reached amid all the disadvantages that necessarily stand in the way of intel- 
lectual progress of any high order in a relatively new country are of a character which should give 
the Society much confidence for the future. On the whole these results may fairly challenge compar- 
ison with the work of similar institutions in other and older countries. During the present session 
the contributions to the English literary section take a far wider range than at any previous time since 
its organization. The catholicity of the Society, in a secular sense, can be judged from the presence 
of men differing widely in politics, creed, and opinion, but meeting here on a common platform of 
intellectual advancement, and in this way doing not a little to remove those asperities and prejudices 
which do so much to keep men apart in the world. The Society rests on a bi-oail basis of thought and 
discussion, and recognizes no sectional, political or sectarian distinctions in the selection of its mem- 
bers, or in the pages of its ' Transactions." Carefully avoiding nil those purely controversial or party 
questions which are antagonistic to the success of a literary and scientific association, it claims at the 
same time for its members the freest and fullest discussion within the limits of its legitimate work. 
It is not selfish or narrow in its aim or object, and the literary or scientific student who has anything 
valuable to offer will always find free access to its pages. If wo consult the programme of the present 
meeting, it will be seen that a fair proportion of the papers are otic red !>} learned divines, public 
functionaries, and scholars who are not members of the organization, but come forward voluntarily to 
give us the benefit of their mature thought and study. On this basis the Society has already been 
able to enlist the cordial and active co-operation of a number of able scholars and thinkers, whilst at 
the same time adhering to that rule of limited membership which it has always deemed best calcu- 
lated to sustain the high standard which is necessary for the development of literary and scientific 
culture. It is satisfactory to know that the labours of the Society have so far obtained an amount of 
recognition among scientific and literary bodies of other countries that fully comes up to the hopes of 
its most sanguine promoters and friends. The 'Transactions ' reach every scientific, historical and 
literary society, as well as library of note throughout the world, and it is now beyond our means to 
meet the demands that are made upon us to supply the early volumes of the series. The Society has 
circulated its 'Transactions ' with great liberality under the conviction that it can in this way best 
discharge the responsibility that parliament has placed upon it in placing at its disposal a generous 
grant for the publication of its proceedings. In its typographical appearance, and wealth of illustra- 
tions and maps, the ' Transactions ' are only equalled by some half dozen societies of a cognate char- 
acter in Europe and America. The Council are convinced that the wide distribution of the volumes 
has been a positive advantage to Canada since they have reached a large body of learned men and 
earnest students in many countries who otherwise would know very little of many phases of the 
scientific, material, political and intellectual progress of Canada. The contents of the ' Transactions' 
are now so varied in their character, that the foreign reader can gather a vast amount of information 
in the eleven published volumes of over six thousand large quarto pages respecting the Dominion, 
that no other series of volumes, printed in this or any other country, can pretend to offer. Papers on the 
geology and mineralogy of the Dominion supplement the labours of the able geological staff of Can- 
ada, and are printed simultaneously with disquisitions on the development of government, and the 
nature of our political institutions. The canal system of Canada is brought to our notice, as well as 
the progress of literature and science in French and English Canada. The language and traditions of 
the aborigines are treated with as much fulness as are the history and story of the ancient rocks. 
Under the circumstances the Royal Society claim from the Canadian people the same encouragement 
and attention that it is receiving from those countries where its 'Transactions' are now studied, and at 


the name time appeal to it* own members to keep over steadily in view the high duty and responsibi- 
lity resting upon every one of them. To quote the language of one of its founders, twelve years ago : 
" We must discharge this high duty and responsibility in the most perfect manner possible, and with 
a regard not to personal, party or class views, but to the welfare of Canada and its reputation before 
the world. We should prove ourselves first unselfish and zealous literary and scientific men, and 
next Canadians in that widest sense of the word in which wo shall desire, at any personal sacrifice, to 
promote the best interests of our country by the aid of a pure and elevated literature, and a true, 
profound and practical science." 

On motion of Dr. Dour! not, seconded by Dr. Stewart, the consideration of the report of the 
Council was deferred until the general meeting on the following day at 10 a.m. 


The Honorary Secretary again read the list of societies who take part in the work of the Royal 
Society, and the following reports wore submitted by their respective delegates: 

I._ From '/'A* 1 \,ilnr<il /listury Society f Montreal, through Mr. Justice WURTELK, D.C.L. 

The Natural History Society of .Montreal has, this year, us in the past, taken advantage of the 
privilege, which it |M.s-csse.-<, to send a delegate to the meeting of the Royal Society of Canada. 

The w.'i k n( the society during the past year has been satisfactory, and the interest therein of 
the members and also of the public has been shown by the increased attendance at its meetings and 
Use of the library by members and associates has increased, and this is due, in some 
measure, to ihe addition which has been made to it of a few new books. The society regrets however 
that its museum, which is well worthy of a visit, is not more generally resorted to, and it will 
endeavour to make arrangements to open it gratuitously to the public, as soon as its finances will 
permit the necessary outlay. 

During the pa-t year, the society lost one ordinary and one corresponding member by death, 
but on the other hand, it added twenty-six ordinary members and three associate members to its 

It was considered that a closer association between the various societies, in Montreal, which are 
engaged in the study of natural history, would conduce very materially to promote that study by con- 
centrating their etlorU and bringing their members into pen-anal intercourse. The report of the 
committee, intrusted with this matter, states: " that the object aimed at is not in any way to improve 
the financial [>"-i:ii>n of one society at the expense of another, but to bring the workers in the 
various branches of natural history in Montreal into closer contact, thus strengthening all the 
iclie* and making their work more efficient." The Natural History Society, _with that view, 
entered into negotiations with several of its sister societies, and these negotiations have resulted in 
the affiliation with it at the present time of the Microscopical Society, the Entomological Society and 
the Agoseiz Society. Kach of these societies forms a section of tho Natural History Society, and 
while retaining it- name and organization, tho members become associate members of the latter 

It has been decided to extend the range of subjects to be presented to tho society at its monthly 
meetings so a* to include both the natural and the physical sciences, and, with a view to give a more 
popular character to tho papers which are road at the meetings, to request their authors to use 
language as free as possible from technicalities. Those papers, however, which are accepted by the 
society for publication in tho ' Record of Science,' may be recast and appear in technical language, 
hoald the authors desire it. 

The ' Canadian Record of Science ' has been published for a number of years by tho Natural His- 
tory Society, and u appreciated in scientific circles, and its discontinuance would be much re- 


gretted. It has hitherto been in part maintained by the small annual grant of $400 made by the 
legislature of Quebec, and when this grant was discontinued it was feared that the society's funds 
would not permit its further publication. The society was loath to see it disappear, and resolved to 
use every effort to continue its quarterly issue. It appropriated from its funds a sum of $200 
towards the cost of its publication and trusts to the well known liberality of the citizens of Montreal 
for subscriptions to cover the balance. 

The lectures of the Somerville course were delivered on the Thursdays from the 1st February to 
the 15th March inclusively and were as follows: 

1. The Dog, his origin, history, characteristics, varieties, etc., by Professor T. Wesley Mills, 

M.D., D.V.S. 

2. The Dog, his management, his relation to the family and the community, the dog and the 

cat compared, by Professor T. Wesley Mills, M.D., D.V.S. 

3. Cattle in their Commercial Relations, by Professor Duncan McEachran, F.R.C.V.S. Eng. 

4. Cattle in their Sanitary Relations, by Professor Duncan McEachran, F.R.C.V.S. Eng. 

5. The Domestic Cow and Dairy Industries, by Professor M. ('. Baker, D.V.S. 

6. Milk and Microbes, by Professor Adami, M.A., M.D. 

7. The Horse, by Professor D. McEachran, D.V.S. 

All these lectures were free and were remarkably well attended, and, except the second and 
fourth, were illustrated. 

The following papers were read and discussed at monthly meetings of the society: 

1. The Guanches or Aborigines of the Canary Islands, by Sir .1. William Dawson, LL. I)., 

F. R. S., F.G.S., etc. 

2. Hibernation and Allied states in the Lower Animals and in Man, by Dr. T. Wesley Mills. 

3. How a Chemical Analysis is made, by N. N. Evans, M.A. Sc. 

4. Denudation, or the Waste of Land, by F. D. Adams, M.A. Sc., Ph. D. (Heidelberg). 

5. The Mechanics of Haulage, by J. T. Nicholson, B. Sc. (Kdin.) 

6. Ancient Myriapods, by G. F. Matthew, F.R.S.C., of St. John, N.B. 

The annual field day of the society, last year, was on the 3rd of June, at the village of Sto. 
Agathe, on the Montreal and Western Railway. The scenery in that part of the province of Quebec is 
very beautiful and the day was much enjoyed by the excursionists. The thanks of the society were 
given to the mayor and inhabitants of the village for the cordial welcome extended to its members. 
This year the field day will be on the 2nd of Juno and the trip will be extended to Sault aux 
Iroquois, now called the village of Labollo, which will give the members the opportunity of seeing 
more of that section of the country which may be called the Switzerland of Quebec. 

The gentlemen whose names now follow are the present officers and members of the council of 
the society : 

Honorary President Sir J. William Dawson, C.M.G., LL.D., F.R.S., F.G.S., etc. 

President Dr. T. Wesley Mills. 

First Vice-Prosident James S. Shearer. 

Vice-Presidents Hon. Edward Murphy, J. H. R. Molson, J. Stevenson Brown, Sir 

Donald A. Smith, Rev. Robert Campbell, George Simmer, Very Rev. Dean Car- 

micbael, J. H. Joseph, B. J. Harrington. 
Recording-Secretaiy R. W. McLachlan. 
Corresponding Secretary Dr. J. W. Stirling. 
Members of Council Edgar Judge, Frank D. Adams, Albert Holden, L. A. N. Latour, 

Hon. J. S. C. Wurtele, Joseph Fortier, Samuel Finley, Professor Cox, C. S. J. 


Chairman of Council George Sumner. 
Superintendent Alfred Griffin. 


In conclusion, thenocietj deeiree to nay that, to the extent of its ability, it will always bo happy 
to aid workers in the study of natural and physical science. 

II. From The Entomological Society of Ontario, through Rev. THOMAS W. FTLES, F.L.S. 

I have the honour to report that the Kntomological Society of Ontario continues, with zeal and 
suet-ens, it* researches into all such subjects as naturally full under, or in any way have a bearing 
u|x>n scientific und economic entomology. 

The membership of the society during the past year has greatly increased, especially by addi- 
tions from tli- province of Ontario. This fact betokens both a growing interest in the subject of 
entomology, and also an increasing confidence in the society as a guide and helper in its pursuit. 

The society was established in 18IJ3. Of its founders but few now remain to us. Most of them 
have U-cii losi to ti- through death or departure to distant places of residence. By the members of 
the present duv their memory is held in grateful respect. The society, however, still enjoys the 
U-nctit of the experience and scholarship of the Rev. C. J. S. Bothuno and the business talent of Mr. 
.1. M. IVnton. The names of those gentlemen appeared in the first list of officers published by the 
-ocielv. and thevare louud al-o in the list published in the present year. 

The -ocii-tv enjovs the contidence o|' the many able entomologists who have been appointed to 
p..-iti..n- in the colleges and i-xperimental stations of the United States of America, and numerous 
:n -tide* from these gentlemen have appeared in the society's publications. It also numbers among its 
correspondent* leading entomologists in Kngland and Germany. 

It i- largely due to the wise and liberal support of the Ontario Government that the society ban 
U-.-n enabled to attain it.-- jire.-ent eminent position of usefulness. 

The report of Mr. J. A. Balkwill, treasurer of the society, shows that its finances are in a highly 
satisfactory state all expenses having been met, important purchases for increasing the advantages 
of the society having been made, and a sufficient balance remaining for carrying on the immediate 
Work of the society. 

Seventy volumes have been added to the society's library in the course of the year, by donation 
and pun-base. Among-t them are the tenth volume of the Proceedings and Transactions of the 
Royal Society of Canada, the Report of the Ontario (iame and Fish Commission, the Report of the 
Smithsonian Institution, the Rejiort of the New York State Museum, the Mammals of Minnesota, the 
Hawk- and Owls of the t'nited States, and the Seventeenth Report of the Geology and Natuial 
History nf Indiana. The number of books in the library is now 1,284. Very important additions 
have ul-o been made to the society's collections of natural objects. 

Valuable work has been done by the ornithological, the botanical, the microscopical and the 
geological sections of the society; and a report from each of them was read at the annual meeting. 
With a view to bringing the knowledge and experience of the members of these sections to bear more 
frequently for the good of the society at large, a committee on field days, consisting of Dr. Woolverton, 
Messrs. McClement, Klliott and Stevenson, and one representative from each section, was appointed at 
the annual meeting. 

The Montreal branch of the society held eight meetings during the year, at which interesting 
papers were read and much profitable conversation upon entomological subjects generally was held. 
The branch numbers among its members men well acquainted with the entomology of the Montreal 
inland, Mown. L. Gibb, A. F. Winn, F. Hansen and H. B. Cashing ; and the hospitality of Mr. H. H. 
l.yinan, the president of the branch, and the access he has afforded to his extensive collections of 
Lepidoptera have made the meetings of this branch exceedingly pleasant and profitable. 

The annual report of the society, printed by order of the Legislative Assembly of Ontario, con- 
tain* record of the proceedings of the annual meeting held October llth and 12th ; reports from 
the council and the various officers and sections of the society; the opening address of Mr. James 
Fletcher, given in the absence of the president, and telling of the injurious insects of the year and the 


various modes of dealing with them ; and the annual address of the president, Mr. W. Hague Harring- 
ton, likewise containing much valuable information on these subjects. These are followed by con- 
tributions from members of the society, viz. : 

Entomological Mistakesof Authors, by Rev. Thomas W. Fylcs, South Quebec. 
The Season of 1893, by Rev. Thomas W. Fyles, South Quebec. 
Mosquitoes, by J. Alston Moffatt, London, Ont. 
Canadian Uroceridro, by W. Hague Harrington, Ottawa. 
Additional Notes on Japanese Insects, by W. Hague Harrington, Ottawa. 
Notes and Queries, by Rev. W. J. Holland, Ph. D., Alloghany, Pa. 
The Dragon Fly, by T. J. McLaughlin, Ottawa. 
The Song of Thyreonotus, by William T. Davis, Staten Island, N.Y. 

Notes on some of the more important Entomological Exhibits at the Chicago Exhibition, by 
James Fletcher, Ottawa. 

Then comes a full report of the annual meeting of the Association of Economic Entomologists, 
furnished by Mr. L. O. Howard, of the Division of Entomology, Department of Agriculture, Washing- 
ton, D.C., together with some of the most generally interesting papers read at the meeting. Some 
of these are by the most eminent and practical entomologists of the United States, and all of them are 
valuable. The closing pages of the report are devoted to book notices, obituaries, etc. 

The 'Canadian Entomologist,' the society's monthly organ, completed at the end of the year its 
25th volume. This volume contains descriptions of no less than 162 new species of insects. The 
contributors to its pages number 50. Amongst them are men of world wide reputation. 

That the society may be of service to the community at large, by teaching our fanners, gar- 
deners and fruit-growers the life-histories of their insect friends and insect foes, and by showing them 
how the injurious attacks of the latter are carried on and what steps should bo taken to meet and 
nullify them is, we believe, the earnest desire of every one of its numerous members. 

Appended will be found a list of the officers of the society.

<il' the battle of Slimy Crock, when addresses were made by A. Brown, Esq., Chairman, Principal 
Gnint, (it C^iieen's. and Mr. Sanford Evans, president <>f the Canadian Club. Airs. John ('aider read the 
following address : 

Mr. President, ladies and gentlemen of t lie Wentworth Historical Society: The day and the 
voar in-crihod on the banner which I have the honour of presenting to your society record both a war 
and a decisive engagement. The war of 181--K5 was an unprovoked and unjustifiable invasion by a 
country people-! by eight millions against u population of but 250,000 peaceful and unoffending 
French inhabitant* and British pioneers, scattered over the then sparsely settled portions of the now 
wide and great I) niiinin of Canada ; "luring which war Canada gave so freely of the life-blood of hoi- 
son- in defence of our glorious patrimony. It has been said, ' Blessed is the, country that has no his- 
nay. rather would I say, perish the people which have no spirit of patriotism to warm and 
stir the ptil-e of national life inciting them to noble thoughts and deeds ! 

" I'IKUI reading the first publication of the proceedings and transactions of the Wontworth His- 
torical S.M-iety I was impressed by the records, and with the fact thai you, ladies and gentlemen, us a 
M-ieiy. are worthy custodians of the few but glorious memories of our still young country. I am 
proud to bo able to claim descent from 1'nited Empire Loyalists, as my great-grandfather, Captain 
James Gage, was killed while lighting under the old flag in the revolutionary war of 177>. My great 
grandmother, unhappy and broken-hearted at the loss and the result of the war, and not content to 
remain under the rule of the newly formed republic, preferred, in connection with other U. E. 
Loyalists, to seek a new home under the British flag, and with her only son undertook the long and 
periloiu journey to Canada. God grant that Canadians may never dishonour the memory of that noble 
ban! of exile* whose loyally to their king and country led them to Canada, and afterwards to perform 
no many heroic dee 1- in its defence. 

" I feel, therefore, that I have a hereditary right to hand over to the keeping of your society 
thin banner, commemorating the engagement of Stony Creek, which was fought upon the home- 
stead of my grandfather, James Gage, and which was taken possession of by two thousand Americans, 
and his family imprisoned, until released by a small but gallant band of British and Canadian heroes, 
in number but 704, who defeated the invaders at every point, and whose bravery has bequeathed to 
an the pricelemi boon of Canadian freedom. And you, gentlemen of the Canadian Club, I am sure, 
will never fail to honour the national sentiment which this banner is intended to foster and perpetuate, 
nd that you, if ever summoned to emulate the deeds of the heroic post, will be over found at the post 
of doty. 

" I h*T great pleasure, sir, in presenting you with this banner." 


President George H. Mills replied as follows : 

" Dear Madam : As the unworthy representative of the Wentworth Historical Society, I accept with 
profound respect and sincere gratitude this beautiful banner, along with your patriotic and impressive 
address. I understand that the presentation waa intended for the 6th of June, the anniversary of the 
memorable battle of Stony Creek, but that unavoidable circumstances prevented the presentation on 
that day. By singular coincidence, however, the ceremony of this evening very appropriately hap- 
pens on the identical date, 19th June, when in 1812 the declaration of that unnatural and unprovoked 
but unsuccessful war against Great Britain and Canada, referred to in your address, was ratified. It 
is indeed eminently fitting that you, the direct descendant of patriotic United Kmpire Loyalists, 
upon whoso farm the brilliant engagement took place, should bo the donor of tliis significant 
memorial. It also appeared to me as eminently fitting that the presentation should take plaee in the 
county of Wontwortb, and especially in this temple dedicated to justice, inasmuch as it will be 
remembered that the place whore we are now assembled is historic, ground, that within a gun shot of 
this building still lie the remnant of earthworks on Burlington Heights, erected in defence of our 
country, whence issued that small but brave band of men, that forlorn hope, whose heroism, under 
Harvey, turned back an invading and victorious force, numerically thrice their own strength, pre- 
served this land to the British crown, and conferred peace and prosperity upon their descendants. It 
is well that memories of such events bj perpetuated ; and you, madam, have contributed not a little 
to that end by this presentation. 

"Speaking for the Wentworth Historical Society, I can safely assure you that to our successors 
recorded instructions shall be given to preserve and transmit the valuable gift that we. through your 
generosity and patriotism, have this evening been made the recipient. 

" In conclusion, I desire to earnestly thank you, not only on behalf of the society over which I 
have the honour of presiding, not only on behalf of all loyal Canadians, but as well on behalf of Kng- 
lishmen, Irishmen, Scotchmen and Frenchmen too, with British la-arts imbued with love for their 
inherited or their adopted country." 

The banner was, at the request of the Canadian Commissioners, sent to the World's Kair at 
Chicago, and placed in the Canadian building. 

The society has, during the year, again petitioned parliament for a grant in aid of the erection 
of monuments at Burlington Heights and Stony Creek. 

In compliance with tho action of other sister societies, (he Wentworth County Council has been 
respectfully requested to make provision for a money prize to be given for the best essay on the his- 
tory of the county. 

Tho only paper read before the society this year was one by J. W. Smith, M.D., of Dundas ; bis 
subject being Notes from the History of the County of Wentworth, which was delivered on the even- 
ing of January 15th, 1894.

It i- in th.- work of these section- that (he value chielly lies. The several departments have been 
activclv engaged in pur-nit.- of a more special nature (ban that exhibited by the papers read before 
(lie general meetings of the association. 

K-|n-cial mention is necessarv of the work of (he geological section, whoso investigations, directed 
l-v it- indefatigable chairman, < 'ol. <".('. Grant, have attracted ihe attention of scientists, both in 
America and Kurope. 

A number of donations have been made to (he museum during the session, including a valuable 
case of botanical specimens from (he late Professor Wright, of Los Angeles, California. 
The published transactions of the association arc in great demand. 

V. From Tl,e .AV<i Scotia Historical Society, through A. II. MACKAT, LL.D. 

t'nder the jucsidency of the Hon. M. II. Kichoy, the society has done the usual amount of work 
during the year l*!t.'{-'.'4. 

The papers read were as follows : 

1. Voyages and Discoveries of the Cabots, by the Rev. Moses Harvey, LL.D., F.R.G.S., 

F.U.S.C., Nov. lUb. 1893.

At a special meeting of the society held July 28th, 1893, after an address by Dr. Sandford 
Fleming, C.M.G., the following resolution was moved by Mr. F. Blake Crofton, seconded by Dr. De- 
Wolfe, and unanimously adopted : 

" JSetolced, That this society respectfully seconds the recommendation of the Canadian Institute 
that the government of Canada should adopt some means of commemorating the fact that the first 
vowel propelled by steam through the entire voyage across the Atlantic was the ' Royal William,' built 
at Quebec and owned in Canada, and which made the pioneer voyage from Pictou to London in 1833. 

" And further Ketolvfd, That this society suggests thecxpedioncj' of having the evidence proving 
Ihe pioneer ocean steamship to have been a Canadian vessel properly collated and published in 
pamphlet form under the auspices of the government. 

' And further Revolted, That the members of parliament and senators from Halifax and Pictou be 
requested to prevent these recommendations to the Dominion authorities." 


It is satisfactory to note that the action of our own and kindred societies has borne good fruit. 
On the 17th of April, 1894, the Under Secretary of State addressed the following letter to Mr. Stairs, 
M.P. for Halifax : 

"SiR, Adverting to the subject of your letter of the 31st July last, wilh which you transmitted 
copy of a resolution of the Nova Scotia Historical Society, respecting the ' Royal William, ' I have 
the honour to inform you that His Excellency the Governor-General having had such resolution 
under his consideration in council, was pleased to order that the suggestion therein contained as to the 
collation of evidence to prove the pioneer ocean steamship to have been a Canadian vessel, should be 
acted upon. 

" Subsequently, a pamphlet prepared free of charge by Captain F. C. Wiirtele, Honorary Secretary 
of the Literary and Historical Society, Quebec, in which evidence is collected establishing the fact in 
question, was submitted to His Excellency in Council, and His Excellency in Council having been 
pleased to authorize the publication of the same by this department, it will be added in the form of a 
special appendix to the report of the department for the current year." 

VI. From The Nova Scotian Institute of Science, through A. JI. MACKAY, LL.I).

Tin- publication i >f the ' Proceedings and Transactions' for 1892-93 (being part 3 of volume i. of 
tin- now serievi lia- been somewhat delayed, but has now been issued, and is being distributed to 
menilxTs and corresponding societies. Besides shorter papers, it contains a long, valuable and well- 
illustntted discussion of tlie I'ictou coal-tield, l>y II. S. 1'oole, Ksq. The 'Proceedings and Trans- 
Hctioiif.' for l*'.>.'!'.i| is under way and will probably be issued during the summer. 

Tlie librarv continues to grow at a rapid rale, a large number of now exchange arrangements 
having been made with other .societies during the past year. The- available accommodation in the 
prnviiu ial building having become too small, the f-ection of foreign publications has boon removed to 
a room kindly furnished by Dalhousie College. The institute still finds itself unable to rent suitable 
riMim- lor the accommodation of the library, but hope is still entertained that such accommodation 
may be provided by the provincial legislature for the institute and other similar societies and for the 
collections of the provincial mu-eum. 

VII. From The Yv Hrunsicick Natural History Satiety, through Mr. (i. U. HAY. 

I haw the honour, its delegate from the Natural History Society of Now Brunswick, to present 
the following report of the work of the society lor the year: 

TI.e work of tin- past year has been increasing in interest and value to the community, and wo 
IIOJK-, in making better known, from a scientific point of view, the resources of the province. The 
papers read, as the subjoined list will show, have been on a variety of topics connected with the 
natural hitry of the province, and designed to make this subject bettor known to the other pro- 
vinces of the Dominion as well as to countries abroad. For this purpose the usual yearly bulletin 
(No. XI.) has been published for distribution among the members and copies have been sent to 
scientific societies abroal. 

In onlcr to make the society's work more popular, and add to its membership, a series of scien- 
tific lectures was arranged and carried out, in addition to the usual monthly paper* read. The society 
haa kept the object steadily in view for years of giving elementary instruction to all those who desire 
to avail themselves of such privileges; and by the aid of its museum and library, which are con- 
stantly being added to and increasing in value and importance from year to year, we notice with 
satisfaction an increasing interest in natural science, especially among the teachers of the public 
school*, who have it in their power to such a largo extent to foster the study of natural science in the 
future, and make it of permanent and ever-increasing interest. 

In August of last year the society held a summer camp for general field work, and especially for 
the collection and study of archwological remains at French Lake, in Sunbury county, New Bruns- 
wick. About twenty-three members attended, and ten days wore spent in studying more especially 


the implements aud weapons of the Indian period. Much information was gathered and the archaeo- 
logical department of the society's museum was greatly increased. 

The membership of the society shows a healthy increase, and the associate membership, com- 
posed of ladies, has done much to advance the objects of the society. 

The report of the botanical committee of the society shows a list of over thirty species of flower- 
ing plants new to the province within the past few years. 

A circular has been received from the Philadelphia Academy of Science, and another from the 
Council of the Scientific Alliance of Now York, in regard to the much desired reduction of postage on 
natural history specimens between students and workers. We hope that this matter may be con- 
sidered by the Royal Society, and a memorial sent to the Government to secure, if possible, a 
reduction of postage on scientific specimens. If a bureau could be established in Canada for the 
exchange of the publications of the different scientific and literary societies throughout the Domin- 
ion, it would load to more economy and a better distribution than if each society managed such 
exchange on its own account. 

The following papers were read before the society during the past year: 

June 6 (1) Report of the delegate to the Royal Society, G. U. Hay. 

(2) Archseozoon Acadiense, with a description of its nature and a new locality,

VIII. From The Microscopical Society of Montreal, through Dr. GIRDWOOD. 

On behalf of the Microscopical Society of Montreal, I have the honour to report that they have 
limi a very successful session. Their meetings have been as usual on the second Monday of every month 
from October to May inclusive, and the papers road at the meetings were as follows : 
IS'.J.'t Oct. 9. President's address, Dr. Girdwood. 

Nov. 13. The histology of the "central nervous system," Dr. McConnell. 
Dec. 11. Vegetable Histology, Dr. Girdwood. 
|S'.i4 .Ian S. The Protozoa, Dr. Drake. 

Fob. \'2. Tln> pcriphiral nervous system, Dr. McConnell. 
March 1L'. Plant Sections, Dr. Stirling. 

April '.'. Leach's lantern microscope as itn aid in demonstration, C. F. Williams, Esq. 
May 14. Method of mounting Polycistina, Fred. Richards, Esq. 

The attendance at these meetings was good and the discussion on the papers instructive. Besides 
the papers read many subjects of interest were al.-o brought before the society. Specimens of the ova 
of some of the poly/.oa f'rinttiliflla maynijica of Dr. Leidy were hutched out by some of the members, 
and the living specimens brought before the society. 

Tlie Microscopical Society has arranged for a series of papers for their meetings for the coming 
session, and have arranged with the Natural History Society of Montreal by which the members of 
the Natural History Society are admitted to the meetings of the -Microscopical Society, and notice of 
the subjects for discussion and papers to be read are given in advance, so that members and visitors 
may be prepared to enter into the discussion of the papers with some preparation. It is hoped by 
this means to have a large audience at these meetings and to popularize the subject of microscopical 
science and by interesting a larger number of individuals, to have more workers and to increase the 
general knowledge of nature and the methods adopted by those who devote themselves to the study of 
her mysteries, and thus by extending education drive out ignorance and superstition. 

The society has much pleasure in being able to report that no loss has occurred this year in their 
number, but that five new members have been elected, and two corresponding members in the United 
That they have no arrears on their treasurer's book; all debts are paid and a balance of $220 
to their credit. 

The officers elected for the ensuing year are : 
President Dr. Girdwood. 
Vice-President Dr. Stirling. 
Secretary C. J. Williams, Esq. 
Treasurer J. Shearer, Esq.

Les limites de temps ndcessairement preterites aux deldgues des socidtds adjointes no nous per- 
mettent pas d'en dire plus long pour donner une iddo exacte de la physionomic des sdances de notro

de notre spirituelle secrdtaire, M mc C'ornu, sera plus intdressant quo quoi que ce soit quo jo 
dire, et completera mon rapport :

qu'4 plonger la main dans ses tiroirs et nous avail apportd deux rdcits dont le contraste rehaussait le

ce style coulant et clair et avec la note touchanto que nous apprdcions si vivement. 

'' Le second, 'Tit Pit'e Vallerand, dtudo de moeurs prise au vif, d'un naturel saisissant qui tantot 
nous secoue d'un rire inextinguible, tantot nous fait frdmir d'horreur. Car ces " cageux " ont des 
poetes, et des podtes d'apocalypse, leur imagination excitde par toute sorte de Idgendes, par les grnnds 
silences des forets, 1'influence d'une nature sauvage qu'ils peuplent do toutes sortes d'etre.s sauvages, 
se livre i la plus extravagante chevauchde qu'on puisse rver. Et quel vocabulaire ! celui de M. Frd- 
chette, j'entends, car quelque rdels que semblcnt ces personnages on a peine 4 croire qu'ils possedent 
un choix aussi abondant d'dpithetes pittoresques, uno tello pldthore de vorbes ! Bref, nous avions 
totalement oublid que nous dtious commoddment assis sur des fauteuils confortables dans un salon 
modorne, et il nous semblait Stre emportds dans la nuit noire sur le radeau tournoyant, le long des 
flancs de la montagne maudite, une bande de Jacques Mistigris 4 nos trousses. Bnfin, de quoi nous 
faire river toute la nuit. Un morceau de musique est venu nous rappeler il la rdalitd, ou plul6t nous 
prdparer 4 ce qui allait suivre." 

Je me fais 1'interprete des membres de notre socidtd quand je dis que nous apprdcions 1'honneur 
que nous a fait la Socidtd royale en nous demandant d'envoyer encore une fois, cetto annde, un ddldgud 
a cette fgte intellectuelle. Si nous rdussissons i donner une impulsion au mouvement littdraire qui 


s'accentue dans lea rangn du protestantismo francais, nous aurons accompli une oouvre, quelquo faible 
<|u'elle soil, dont nous aurons raison de nous rejouir. 

X. From The Ottawa Field Naturalists' Club, through Mr. FRANK T. SHUTT, M.A. 

I have the honour to make the following report respecting the work and welfare of the Ottawa 
Field Naturalists' Club. 

Puring the past session seven general meetings have been hold. The large attendance of mem- 
U>r* and their friends at these, and the discussions that have been taken part in at the close of the 
lectures, assure the council that the year 1893-4 has been one of the most successful in the history of 
the club. 

The lecture course was n particularly interesting ono, embracing as it did lecturers of scientific 
reputation and subjects of importance mid fascination in the various branches of natural science. A 
n..vel feature, and one that proved exceedingly valuable to our audiences, was the use of the oxy- 
calci in lantern for illustrating the lectures. 

The programme, as prepared and carried out, is as follows: 

I*:I:!|IT. IL'. Inaugural Address: The Kxtinct Northern Sea ( 'ow and Early Russian Ex- 
plorations in the North Pacific, Dr. <i. M. Dawson, C.M.G., F.R.S.

Mar. I'M. Annual Meeting. 

The summer excursions have given, as in past years, much enjoyment to the members of the 
club and their friends, though owing to the unpleasant character of the season for outings several of 
our field-days were either postponed or their pleasure seriously marred. The talks given by the 
leader- at the close of these excursions uj>n the collections of the day, have always contributed largely 
to the information of our members upon the fauna, flora and general natural history of the district 

The "Ottawa Naturalist" for the past year forms a volume of 178 pages, and contains, besides 
the transactions of the club, man)- original contributions to science. Its circulation now numbers 
about 400, and its monthly appearance is looked forward to with much pleasure by our members in 
Canada, the United Stales and abroad. By its means the club has been enabled to disseminate much 
information of a scientific and educational character. In this way, undoubtedly, our society is doing 
a good work, but one that perhaps has scarcely received the appreciation in the past that it deserved. 

The financial condition of the society is satisfactory, though the council are of the opinion that 
the usefulness of the " Naturalist " could bo greatly extended if a larger sum than now at their com- 
mand could IKS appropriated to its publication. Hitherto the club has been self sustaining, but since 

its influence and work has of late so greatly increased it is felt that a small annual grant given fr 

the provincial treasury could be wisely expuudcd in improving and enlarging our publication. Hold- 
ing these views the council have formally applied to the provincial legislature for a grant, urging 
their claim on the ground of an equal right to support with other Canadian societies doing educa- 
tional work. 


The membership of the club is nearly 300, showing that the vitality of the society is unimpaired 
and that the interest of its members is marked with the same activity as in the past. 

At the annual meeting, held in March last, the following officers wore elected for 1894-5 : 

President Dr. George M. Dawson, C.M.G.

XI. From The Ottawa Literary and Scientific Society, through Mr. F. K. BENNETTS. 

I have the honour, as delegate from the Ottawa Literary and Scientific Society, to make the 
following report to this honourable body, upon the affairs of the society for the year ended on the 31st 
March, 1894. 

The prosperous state of the society's finances, reported last year, has continued to exist, and the 
number of new members elected was larger than for many years past. 

The library now contains over 2,600 volumes, of which about a third were added during the year. 
Three thousand five hundred and eleven books were taken out, very nearly twice as many as in any 
previous year. The books added to the library have consisted of standard works of history and 
biography, many valuable works on sociology, some of the most recently published scientific works, 
and a number of recent works of fiction. Although overshadowed by the great parliamentary library, 
the society's library is very useful. Thei;e is no public library in Ottawa, and our library is open to 
any one on payment of a small fee ; it is yearly increasing in extent, and is accessible in the evenings 
and at all times of the year. 

The reading room has been well attended. A large number of the leading British, Canadian and 
United States newspapers and periodicals are supplied to it, and through it the society does all in its 
power to keep its members informed of current events, and in touch with modern thought. The 
lecture course as carried out was as follows:

The course was perhaps the most successful one over hold by the society. The attendance 
throughout WHS largo and the greatest interest was shown. It may be hero said that during the last 
few yearn the society has brought professors from the foremost universities in Canada, to the city, 
thus providing liierarv and scientific entertainments of a high order for the public, .and bringing 
Ottawa into closer intellectual relation with other centres of thought throughout the Dominion. The 
lecture courw- i- intended to In- a stimulus to intellectual activity rather than a series of classes, and 
the greatly ini-rca.-ed at tendance and interest shown last year led the society to believe that the 
course I'u Iti In a very useful pur|xc.. The closing lecture, that of Dr. S. E. Dawson, was honoured by 
tin- pre.-cni e of Hi- Excellency the <iovcrnor-( ieneral, who was pleased to say a few words of appre- 
ciation and encouragement. 

The i|ucst.on of securing new pi cruises lias been before the society for some years, and at present 
a -cliotne is iifnirr consideration, and .some steps have been taken looking to the erection of a building 
in which not only will this society find quarters for itself, but may possibly bo able to supply roonia 
for other societies having somewhat similar aims. 

Last year the delegate from (his -ociel y had the satisfaction of stating that Colonel Allan Gilmour 
had made the generous donation of 8.~>(HI to the funds of the society. I am glad to bo able to report 
that this munificence has been renewed, I lie society having received a similar amount from the same 
donor, who in this very practical w;iy testilies his approval of, and interest in, the work the society is 
doing. A large portion of this amount will, as last year, be devoted to the improvement of the 

At the annual general meeting, held on the 27th April last, Mr. W. D. LoSueur was re elected to 
the presidency, and the other members of the council were, with the exception of Mr. R. E. Gemmill, 
re-elected to the offices they previously tilled The new member is Mr. J. C. Glashan, public school 
inspector for the city of Ottawa. 

XII. From The Eijin Historical and Scientific Institute, through Mr. COLIN A. SCOTT. 

The Elgin Historical and Scientific Institute begs leave to report. The officers of the institute 
are att follows: 

President K. W. McKay. 

Vice-President W. Atkin. 

Secretary W. II. Murch. 

Curator J. W. Stewart. 

Treasurer J. A. Bell. 

Editor Judge Ermatinger. 

Council -The officers, together with Messrs. A. W. Campboll, J. S. Robertson, W. K. 

Jackson, J. S. Brierley, J. Wilkinson, Frank Hunt, J. H. Coyne and Dr. Way. 
During the year valuable additions have been made to the library and museum. A visit was 
made to Victoria, Fisher's Glen and Turkey Point. Information of historical interest was collected 


from persons living in the neighbourhood, especially Simpson McColl, Ksq., ex-M.P.P., with refer- 
ence to the conquest of Canada, the early settlement of the county of Norfolk, the war of 1812 and 
the rebellion of 1837. A paper on the war of 1812, based partly on these reminiscences, was read 
to the institute by His Honour Judge Ermatinger. 

Arrangements have been completed for the publication of a volume of transactions of the institute 
which will contain an historical account of the country of the Neutrals, the early history of the 
Talbot settlement and the county of Klgin, and also a paper outlining the development of local 
government in this section of the province from the settlement of Detroit up to 1853 when the 
organization of the county of Elgin was completed. The expenses of the publication will be defrayed 
by a grant generously made by the county council for that purpose. It is hoped that this will be 
ready by next fall. 

XIII. From The Canadian Institute, Toronto, through DR. SANDFORD FI.EMINO, C.MG. 

The forty-fifth annual report of the Canadian Institute shows that a largo amount of valuable 
work has been done during the past year. Besides the annual meeting recently held there wore 
twenty-three ordinary meetings of the society, exclusive of meetings of the Biological section, the 
Historical section and the Geological section. In all fifty-four papers were road, coin prising papers 
on, (1) Archffiology, (2) Astronomy, (3) Biology, (4) Ethnology, (5) Fine Arts, (G) Geography, (7) 
History, (8) Literature, (9) Meteorology, (10) Natural History, (11) Sanitary Science, (12) Minera- 
logy and Geology. 

There has been an increase in the attendance at all the meetings, and an increase in the number 
of members. 

The curator of the museum has received many valuable additions to the collections, especially of 
Astec, Zuni and Toltec pottery and images carved out of stone. He also obtained for the institute the 
premiums for tlie best collection presented by any nation at the World's Columbian Exposition, being 
the highest award made by the commissioners. The exhibit of the institute attracted a large amount 
of attention. 

The transactions of the institute continue to be widely circulated in all parts of the world. The 
last number issued contains exclusively a monograph on the Western De'ne' Indians by the Rev. A. G. 
Morice, a work of very great interest and value, being an archaeological, industrial, sociological and 
ethnographical sketch of these native tribes of British Columbia, describing the characteristics of a 
fast vanishing people of whom little is known. 

The librarian's report shows that a very large amount of literature is annually received from 
foreign societies in exchange for the transactions of the institute. The total number of exchanges is 
3,062. They are received from the following countries, viz., the United States, Mexico, South 
America, the West Indies, Great Britain and Ireland, Austria-Hungary, Belgium. Denmark, France, 
Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Roumania, Russia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, 
British India, Java, Japan, China, Australasia and Africa. 

During the past year the institute has jointly with the Astronomical and Physical Society of 
Toronto continued the efforts to secure at an early day the unification of the astronomical, civil and 
nautical days. As the results are of world-wide interest the report of the joint committee is presented 
to the Royal Society in full. 

Report of the Joint Committee of the Canadian Institute and the Astronomical and Physical Society of Toronto.

Tho joint committee, appointed by the Canadian Institute and the Astronomical and Physical 
Society of Toronto, have the honour to report on that branch of the subject of time-reckoning spe- 
cially referred to tlicm. 

The unification of the reckoning of theday hon long been under consideration. Sir John Herschell, 
in hit* "Outlines of Astronomy," alluded to the advantages which would result from bringing into 
agreement the civil, the astronomical, and the nautical days. Ho pointed out that the adoption of 
the civil day for astronomical purposes would but slightly inconvenience astronomers, and that in 
a cjiioslion which concerns all other classes of men, astronomers should resolve to act on general prin- 
ciples and cheerfully submit to a small inconvenience in view of the far wider interests which would 
l>c l.enelilc'l. I'niforinity," ho .said, " in nomenclature and mode of reckoning in all matters relating 
to time, space, weight, moasu.'e.s, etc., is of such vast anil paramount importance in every relation of 
life as to outweigh every consideration of technical convenience or custom." 

The civil day In-gins at midnight ami ends at the midnight following. Tho astronomical day 
begins at no .n of the civil day and continued until the, following noon. The nautical day concludes 
at noon nf the civil day, having commenced at the preceding noon. 

It is obvious that any given date extends over, or into, throe different days. Take for example, 
Wednesday, .lime llith. Hy astronomical and nautical reckonings, only half of this date in each case 
is on Wednesday : the lirst half of Jam- !.'{, according to nautical reckoning, is on Tuesday, Juno 12, 
while the second half of the same date i.lune Kith), according to astronomical reckoning, is on 
Thin-day, June 14th. civil time. 

In thi~ we have tho element* of confusion, and it is not surprising that the Washington Interna- 
tional Conference "i l- s St recommended that the civil day should take the place of the astronomical 
and nautical days for all purp'ises. The recommendations of the Washington Conference must be 
held to carry weight, a- this assembly comprised representatives of science from twenty-five nations 
specially called together to consider questions of time-reckoning. Among them were astronomers 
of world-wide fame, as well as men who held high rank as navigators. They were unanimous in 
the opinion that as soon as practicable the astronomical and nautical days should be arranged every- 
where to coincide with the civil day. 

The civil day is the reckoning used by the generality of mankind. It is the exact mean 

between the astronomical and nautical days, and differs precisely twelve hours from both. To effect 

a complete coincidence, it is only necessary to shift astronomical and nautical days each twelve 

hours, and this -hitting will bring both to the civil day. Many ships have already abandoned nau- 

ical lime and date their logs according to civil reckoning; all ships would use the one reckoning 

tho Nautical Almanac and Kphemerides generally were arranged for civil time. There can 

be no doubt whatever that the marine of all nations would benefit by the change. 

we consider the subject simply in its relation to the Nautical Almanac and navigation, the 

unification of time-reckoning would simplify the calculations of mariners and reduce the chances of 

error. One correspondent (Dr. Johnson, of Alcliill University), points out very truly " that the 

omission of even a single step in an oil-repeated process of calculation has an obvious advantage; 

when the simplification removes at the same time that most dangerous source of error, an ambiguous 

' l 'comes great gain." He says that the subject resolves itself unto a question of 

practical utility, viz., what is the greatest good of the greatest number ? Tho Nautical Almanac, aa 

name implies, is for the use primarily of navigators, who are very numerous and yearly increasing. 

d with the men who guide tho floating tonnage of tho world, astronomers are extremely few 

number, and astronomers as a class are skilled calculators ; moreover, astronomers can make 

calculations under tho most favourable circumstances, consequently with the least liability to 

error, as they arc removed from tho disturbing influences to which seamen are frequently exposed. 

The joint committee considered it important to ascertain how far astronomers generally would 
the proposal which would practically abolish the astronomical day. On April 21st, 1893, a 



circular was issued to astronomers of all nations, inviting replies to the following question, viz. : " Is 
it desirable, all interests considered, that on and after the first day of January, 1901, the astronomical 
day should everywhere begin at mean midnight ? " The circular was sent to every astronomer 
whose name appears in tho general list of observatories and astronomers prepared by Mr. Lancaster, 
of the Royal Observatory of Brussels, with the following result: 171 replies in all have been 
received, a complete list of which is appended ; of these 108 are in favour and C3 are not in favour of 
the proposed change. Many of the former are strongly and earnestly in favour of tho adoption of tho 
civil day for astronomical purposes, while tho writers of some of tho latter seem to have been under 
a misapprehension. They object to the adoption of the civil day on the ground that its division into 
two series of 12 hours, designated A.M. and P.M., would bo inconvenient for astronomers. It is obvious 
that this objection has no weight, as tho '24 hour-notation would remain associated with astronomical 
reckonings as at present; moreover, indications are not wanting that the astronomical practice of 
counting the hours in a single scries from 1 to 24, will gradually win its way into general favour in 
civil life. The 24 hour-notation has already boon introduced into use over wide districts in Canada, in 
the whole of Italy, and throughout the Indian Empire, and there is a movement in Europe, in Aus- 
tralia, as well as in tho United States of America, especially among railway men, to bring this mode 
of reckoning the hours into general use. 

In classifying the replies from astronomers according to the countries from which they have 
been received, the votes for or against tho change, stand as follows: 



In favour of the change. 







Unfavourable to the change. 


United States. 


According to this classification of the astronomers hoard from, those of eighteen countries are in 
favour, and those of four are against, the adoption of the recommendations of the Washington Inter- 
national Conference of 1884 with respect to the astronomical and nautical days. If we compare the 
shipping of the countries thus classified (and tho shipping has an important relation to tho Nautical 
Almanac), wo find that the first list, that is to say, the countries in favour of adopting the civil day 
for astronomical purposes, represents ij, or 85 per cent, of the tonnage of the world's marine. 

Thus it appears that there is a preponderating weight of opinion among astronomers themselves, 
that a change should be made in the astronomical day. The joint committee, therefore, feel war- 
ranted in recommending that the home authorities be informed of the facts and that a respectful 
appeal be made to have the Nautical Almanac adapted to the change proposed to take effect at the 
beginning of the coming century. The joint committee are of opinion that the proper course is to 
lay before His Excellency the Governor-General a respectful memorial asking His Excellency to 
bring the whole matter to the attention of the Imperial Government in order that some common 
international understanding may be reached, by which all nations shall assent to the change, and in 
order that the Nautical Almanac which has to be prepared four or five years in advance may be made 
conformable to the change. 

All which is respectfully submitted. 


Joint Committee of the Canadian Instititte and 

the Astronomical and Physical Society of Toronto.

The genernl meeting of the Royal Society w M then adjourned until the following day, and the 
members met for the organization of sections. 


XIV. From The Literary and Historical Society of Quebec, through Mr. P. B. CASQRAIN. 

The general and annual meeting of the Literary and Historical Society of Quebec was held on 
the 10th of January last past in the library of the society, when the following wore elected officers 
for the presi nt year: 

President Archibald Campbell. 

Vice-Presidents The Very Reverend J'eari Norman, William Hossack, P. B. Casgrainand 

John Hamilton. 
Treasurer J. Geggie. 
Librarian Frederick C. Wurtele. 
Recording Secretary T. A. Young. 
Corresponding Secretary A. Robertson. 
Council Secretary William Wood. 
Curator of Museum W. Clint. 
Curator of Apparatus James Morgan. 
Additional Members of Council J. M. LeMoinc, Peter .lohuston, Cyrillc IVsM'.'r an<l 

W. II. Carter. 

We have to lament the removal by death of the following members of our society : (\. Collev 
(a life member) ; Messrs. S. II. Holt, T. II. Jones, Commissary -General M. liell Irvine, < '.M.<!., and 
Messrs. C. A. Scott and W. A. Asho. 

As the past and present position of the society is most graphically described by the out-going 
president, Mr. Cyrillo Tessier, in his report of last year's proceedings, I cannot do better than extract 
such portions of it as will answer the present object. 

I may preface by stating that in 1828 the most prominent men both of French and Knirli-h origin 
in Quebec, united to form a literary and historical association for British North America, and it is 
due to the memory of the late John Charllon Fisher, a graduate of Oxford and a gentleman of high 
attainments, to recall its initiative in its formation. 

The bettor to promote their object the members of the association obtained in IS.ifl a charter of 
incorporation from His Gracious Majesty William IV., under the name of " The Literary and Historical 
Society of Quebec," " for the prosecuting, procuring and publishing interesting documents as to the 
natural, civil and literary history of British North America, and for the advancement of the arts 
and sciences in tho province of Lower Canada, from which public benefit may bo expected." 

Among the names of the incorporalors tho society has pride in mentioning tho Earl of Dalhou.-ie. 
Sir James Kempt, the late Chief Justice Sewe'.l, the Lord Bishop of Quebec, Rev. Joseph Signay, 
future bishop of Quebec, the late Chief Justices Sir .lames Stewart and Vallierosdo St. Heal, Rev. Mr. 
Demcrs, Sir John Caldwell, Messrs. Perreault, Price, Taschereau, Wurtele, Campbell, Ilamel, doSalles 
Laterrier, F. X. Garneau, Ed. Caron, Morrin, Parent, Sheppard, Lee, McCord, Rouchette, Panet, 
Wilkie and many others, the last surviving of whom is our aged and valuable friend Mr. (r. W. 
Wicksteed, who wo are all happy to see present at this convocation. 

Many of tho above-named appear as contributors to tho literary lore of Canada, as may be seen 
in the following work. 

Latterly our librarian, Mr. F. C. Wurtele, after considerable research, has prepared and published, 
under the auspices of tho society, a report of tho scientific works produced by the leading members or 
lecturers of the association, from its inception. Among those were : Chief Justice J. Se well, Dr. 
John Charlton Fisher, Admiral Bayliold, General Baddely, R. K. ; George B. Fairboault, Honourable 
William Shepherd, John Langton, Honourable T. D'Arcy McGeo, Commander Asho, R.N. ; James 
Douglas, Honourable P. J. O. Chauveau, the historians Garneau, Cusgrain, LoMoine, Miles, Turcottc, 
John Rcade, F.R.S.E., General Noble, R.A., Lieut.-Col. Strange, R.A., Andrew Stuart, Amable Ber- 
thelot, Joseph X. Perrault, Dr. J. W. Anderson, Bishop Mountain, Rev. Dr. Wilkie, Dr. George 

Proc. 1894. F. 


Stewart, Alfred Sandham, E. A. Meredith, Professor Goldwin Smith, Dr. J. Harper, Fred. C. 

Wtlrtele, etc. 

During tho post year one of our most esteemed ox presidents, Professor James Douglas, now a 
resident in the United States, and who kindly acted as our delegate to Spain during the festivities 
organized there to celebrate tho discovery of America, gave us a most delightful account, accompanied 
with illustrations, of his trip, touching, amongst other things, upon the voyages of Columbus, 
Magellan and others, navigators of the 16th century. 

The Honourable Mr. Joly do Lotbinierc was good enough to favour us with a very useful paper on 
tho most rapid and economical mode of growing forest trees, exhibiting to his audience specimens of 
black walnut and other trees, the produce of his own plantation, on his manor property at Pointe 

The Reverend Dr. Norman, tho I >oan of Quebec's paper on Julius Ciusar, was also very highly 

On perusing ilio transactions of tho Literary and Historical Society of Quebec, disseminated 
now over tho whole world, it must bo admitted that tho society has not been recreant to tho useful 
and M-itntitic minion which its illustrious founders contemplated. 

So well satisfied were the public of the advantages derived from the labours of the society that up 
to the la-t two ye,n> the government proposed and the legislature thought fit to vote an annual grant 
for the pur|Mic of enabling the society to publish and disseminate the transactions of tho society, 
and exchange them with those of similar societies of other countries. 

Hut this brilliant vision of tho past and its course of desired improvement of the present must 
now, we tear, come loan end. that is tosav, so far as the publications are concerned, if, unfortunately, 
or sociely cannot reckon any longer upon the treasury of the province of Quebec for this sustenta- 
tion ; or unless the large and benevolent spirit of liberality prevailing among the merchant princes of 
Montreal finds a similar echo in the heart and mind of some of the wealthy citizens of Quebec, in 
order to perpetuate the noble end of the society. 

It is not out of place to mention that in the past, for three-quarters of a century, the society, the 
eldest of its kind in ( 'anada. has been an honour ami a credit to tho city of Quebec, not only through- 
out I 'anuda but al.-o abroad. 

It is to be sincerely hoped that the provincial government may find means to continue tho small 
subsidy hitherto extended to our society, and to preserve tho continuity of printed records, so in- 
teresting alike to strangers and citizens desirous of maintaining the historical and literary traditions 
of this ancient province. 

It is to bo regretted that, owing to various causes, the number of the members of our society has 
not sufficiently increased to become independent of extraneous support. 

Hut at the same time it must be admitted that the intellectual progress of the city of Quebec is 
on tho increase, for we see that a public library, in addition to our own, is to bo created for St. 
Hoch's suburb, a monument which is due to tho public spirit and spontaneous liberality of a few of 
it* prominent citizens and self made men, among whom deserve to be mentioned Mr. LaMberte", the 
most extensive furrier trader in the Dominion ; Mr. Paquet, the large dry goods merchant, and Mr. 
Rochelte, an enterprising manufacturer. 

Tho society has to apologize to the other sister societies for being unable, for the causes stated, 
to exchange this year their usual publications. 

XV From The Botanical Club of Canada, through A. H. MAOKAT, B.A., B.Sc., LL.D. 

I bog leave to present the following summary of tho work of tho club throughout tho Dominion 
during the past year, 18U3-94, and of its objects and present constitution. 


ONTARIO. On the 19th April, 1893, Professor John Macoun started for the Pacific Coast and 
spent the summer collecting on Vancouver Island. Collections were also made at Victoria, Nanaimo, 
Comox, Valdez Island, Sooke and many points inland, and a large series of specimens was obtained. 
Altogether 1,400 species were collected ; and in addition to the many new species detected in 1887, 
over thirty additional ones have been so far worked out from the collections made. New species of 
Musci, Hepaticro and flowering plants 'have been named, and others are under consideration. Mr. 
James M. Macoun is writing a series of papers on the plants in the herbarium of the Geological 
Survey, which will appear in the 'Canadian Record of Science' (the first of the series is already pub- 
lished). In these articles all (he later revisions of species will be discussed and descriptions of now 
species as well as copious notes on the herbarium specimens will be given. Later in the year many 
now facts will be arranged and published, and it is hoped that all working botanists will be helped by 
this series of papers which will appear regularly. Mr. William Scott, late of Ottawa, and now of 
Toronto Normal School, did some excellent work last summer. During his vacation he crossed over 
to Vancouver Island and collected there and at various points on his way home nearly 1,000 species 
of flowering plants and ferns. Among other novelties, ho obtained on Vancouver Island, Linaria 
Canaden&is, and in the vicinity of Ottawa, Myriophyllum alternillorum, I. inn. Another member, Mr. 
Roderick Cameron, of Niagara Falls, has been at work for some years in milking a complete catalogue 
of the plants growing without cultivation on the Canadian side of the Falls. Mr. .1. Dearness, Lon- 
don, although for a part of the collecting .season at Chicago, in charge of the educational exhibit, 
reports the addition of nineteen now species to the Fungi of the province. Those include a curious 
Licea described by Dr. Morgan, in the Cincinnati ' Journal of Science,' as Lii'ta bifuris, (externally 
it closely simulates a small bivalve) and a new species of Asche,rson/a, a rare genus not hitherto said 
to be reported north of Mexico. Mr. James White reports seventeen additional species of .Musci to 
the local flora of Edmonton. 

QUEBEC. The work of Professor Penhallow, during the year, on the determination of the species 
of American Conifersc by the structure of the stem (which is now being presented to the society), is 
recognized to be of very great importance in the development of phanerogamic botany. 

NEW BRUNSWICK. Lists of local floras have been sent in during the year from many of the 
county secretaries, as well as the dates of the more common flowering of plants which form a portion 
of the so-called phonological observations referred to elsewhere in this report. Those most worthy of 
specification were from J. Vroom, St. Stephen, Charlotte Co.; N. F. Perkins, Queen's Co.; Alex. Ross, 
B.A., Restigouche Co., and Miss Fenwick, Upper Springfield. Mr. Geo. Oulton, Dorchester, County 
Secretary for Westmoreland, reports much interest throughout his district in botanical work. 

NOVA SCOTIA. Botanical work here has been, to a considerable extent, associated with the 
phonological observations. 0. B. Robinson, B.A., for the first part of the year of King's County 
Academy now of Pictou Academy, reported the dates of first flowering of about 270 plants, with 
valuable additions to the flora of Pictou county. Prof. Coldwell, M.A., of Acadia College, took charge 
of the organization of a corps of phenological observers in King's county. Miss Antoinette Forbes, 
B.A., of Yarmouth County Academy (agent for all material generally required by botanists), Mr. 
Harry Piers, Halifax, Principal W. R. Campbell, B.A., Truro, Miss Mary E. Charman, of Wallace, 
and Miss Louise M. Paint, of Port Hawkesbury, sent in similar reports from their districts. Charles 
E. Brown, Esq., of Yarmouth, sent in a list of the local grasses. Geo. H. Cox, B.A., prepared a 
paper on the local flora of Shelburne, which is being published in the transactions of the Nova Scotia 
Institute of Science. The number of persons engaged in similar work this present year is very con- 
siderably greater than ever before. A summary of the phenological observations has been collated 
for publication in the transactions of the Nova Scotian Institute of Science. 

PRINCE EDWARD ISLAND. Mr. John McSwain has been working on the mosses of the island 
during the year. 



NEWFOUNDLAND. Rev. A. C. Waghornebaa made a very good report, indicating a very energetic 
prosecution of the work of collecting and of the determination of the species collected. The follow- 
ing table summarizes the annual addition to his large list of the previous year (referred to further on) :

him onu a study and description of anew fungus (Cylindrosporium Chrysanthemi) ; the other (with 

. Kilis) de-ci iptive of twenty new Sphaeropeid&e and ffyphomycetes found at London, Ontario. 
I Hiring the year 1 S !I2 he discovcreil 67 new species of fungi, 2!l of them being Pyrenomycetes 
described in the February number of the Proc. Acad. Nat. Sei., Philadelphia, by Ellis and Everhart, 
authors of the " Pyrenomycetos of North America." Ho also makes interesting notes on the distribu- 
tion, etc.. of over twenty species of Phanerogams. .James White sent in a list of mosses collected in 
the vicinity of Edmonton, Out , among which are some interesting find?. 

" From Prince Kdward Island, F. Bain sent in a printed catalogue of additions to the flora of the 
inland, including :J3 Phanerogams and l-'ilicos and 63 Alga-. 

Specially wmthy of notice is the work of the Rev. A. C. Waghorne, in Nowfoundland. He 
has commenced the publication of the floi-a of the island in the Proc. and Trans, of the Nova Scotian 
Intitutc of Science. In the hpring ho re|K>rtod from Labrador to the Islands of St. Pierre and 
fiquclon, a flora consisting of Phanerogams 907, Acrogens 61, Bryophytes 68, Mosses 285, 
Li.- ben- W.I, Algii- 73 ; total 1,17. To this li*t he added in his last report, from Newfoundland and 
Labrador, Phanerogams 27, M owes 34, Algio 13, Fungi 17, Lichens 87, a total of 154 (120 species 
and 31 varieties). 



"In Nova Scotia a specialty has been made of the observation of the times of the flowering of 
plants, etc., in addition to the ordinary work going on in all the other provinces. 

"Following the suggestion of ray circular of the 12th April, 1892, observations made at several 
stations in the province were sent in, from which I select a few by way of example, with the notes 
made thereon at the time. In order to facilitate the changing of the day of the month into the day 
of the year and vice versa, note the number of the day of the year corresponding to the last day of 
each month for 1892. January 31, February 60, March 91, April 121, Hay 132, June 182, July 213, 
August 244, September 274, October 305, November 335, December 3;6. Such a table may be found 
convenient when a calendar giving the day of the year with the day of the month is not at hand. 
For the record book, the day of the month is probably in all cases the safest for general use. The date 
can bo readily converted from the day of the month to the day of the year when necessary for aver- 
aging for a district.

" In all good common schools, and especially in every high school and county academy, there could 
be compiled from year to year and carefully preserved for comparison, with very great advantage to 
the stimulation of the observing instinct of pupils and even of more mature students, and to the 
general development of the scientific habit and culture in tho community, local lists of the times of 
flowering, etc , of plants, to bo permanently kept in the archives of the school. From year to year 
these might also be reported to county or provincial centres, with much addition of interest to the 
local work." [Summaries of these local observations might be published annually in the transactions 
of local societies or in the local newspapers. Provincial summaries might in like manner be pub- 
blished in the transactions of provincial societies or in the provincial newspapers. Local and provin- 
cial statistics could then at any time be collated and compiled for Dominion or continental range.] 
" All schools making observations should most punctiliously receive credit for their contribution to 


the county or provincial summaries based on thorn, when these summaries or generalizations are pub- 
lished. In this way a great deal of valuable information could be gathered, practically without cost, 
and jKKtitively to the advantage of scientific training in the schools of the whole of Canada. I hope 
~-.ii to be able to report the full realization of this plan in the schools of Nova Scotia so far as the 
county academics are concerned. 

There is often a very great difference in the times of flowering of plants even in the same small 
circumscribed locality, according as the place is a specially sheltered one or otherwise. In a spot 
abnormally situated with respect to the heating of the sun's rays and to protection from cold winds 
or even cold nil in some cases, solitary plant may bloom in January, and a May butterfly burst 
from its chrysalii-in February. Tocount such sports as indicating the date of the first normal appear- 
nnce of flowers, etc., for a given locality, would bo very misleading. 1 would suggest the uniform 
adho-ion to tin- practice of recording two dates when necessary. First, the date of the sport, if one 
.hoiild !. ol.-ervcd. inclosing it within brackets; sfcond, the date of the first flowering which is imme- 
diately fallowed l.v the rest of the same species in the particular locality. This latter date is the one 
which i> of the greatest importance, perhaps the only one of very much importance from a general 
I*. int .if view. The tit>t or abnormal appearance is often, however, of great local interest, and by 
inclo-in:,' it within brackets the two dates may be recorded on the same line; but for section, district 
or province avei ai,'c> (botanical sections, districts and provinces), the normal first appearance would 
alone be utilized." 


The r.olani' al ('lull of i 'anada was organized by a committee of Section IV. of the Royal Society 
ot t'aiiada at its meeting in Montreal, May 2!>th, ISill. 

"The object i to adopt means, by concerted hical efforts and otherwise, to promote the explor- 
ation of the flora of evei y portion of British America, to publish complete lists of the same in local 
P:I|HM> a> the work goes on, and to have these lists collected and carefully examined, in order to 
arrive at a correct knowledge of the precise character of our flora and its geographical distribution. 

" The method is to stimulate, with the least po.-sihle paraphernalia of constitution or rules, 
increased activity in our botanists in each locality, to create a corps of collecting botanists wherever 
there may be few or none at present, to encourage the formation of field clubs, to publish lists of local 
flora.- in the local press, etc., etc. ; for which purpose the secretaries for the provinces may appoint 
dccn-tarien for counties or districts, who will be expected in like manner to transmit the same impetus 
to a.- man}* as possible within their own sphere of action. 

" Members and secretaries, while carrying out plans of operation which they may find to bo 
promising of success in their particular districts, will report as frequently as possible to the officer 
under whom they may be immediately acting. 

Before the end of January, at the latest, reports of the work done within the various provinces 
luring the year ended December 31st previous, should be. made by the provincial secretaries to the 
general secretary, from which the annual report to the Royal Society shall be principally compiled. 
By the 1st of January, therefore, the annual reports of county secretaries and members should be 
ient in to the provincial secretaries. 

"The annual report to the Royal Society will contain, in addition to other information, a cor- 
reeled list of active members and officers. 

" To cover expense* of official printing and postage, a nominal fee of twenty-five cent* per annum is 
expected for membership (or one dollar for five years, in advance, or five dollars for life membership). 
Provincial secretaries in remitting the amount of fees from members to the general treasurer are 
authorized to deduct the necessary expenses for provincial official work, transmitting vouchers for 
the name with balance." 



1. Tho recording and publishing of phonological observations in as many localities as possible, as 
suggested in the quotation from the report of 1892-93 given above. 

2. Tho formation of a standard list of the flora of each locality, so that a report of the number of 
species known to bo contained in it may bo briefly given under, say, the following provisional heads: 

Dicotyledons, ; Monocotyledons (non-glumaceous), ; Glumales (grasses and sedges) ; 

Pteridophyta (ferns, horsetails and club-mosses), ; Bryophyta (mosses and liverworts), : 

other Cryptogams, , total species, Tho additions to the flora of any locality during the 

year may then be briefly reported thus: D., ; M., ; G., ; P., ; B., ; O. ('., 

; T.sp, 

3. The herbarium in the museum of tho Geological Department at Ottawa the nucleus of which 
is the private collection of Prof. John Macoiin has been increased to many times its original M/.C 
during tho past ten years. Prof. Macoun or his assistants have collected in all the provinces, and many 
additions have been received from botanists working in various parts of tlie Dominion, so that the 
herbarium now contains, with few exceptions, specimens of all plants known to occur in Canada. 
Tho aim has been to procure at least one sheet of specimens fiom each province in which it is found 
for every species. In addition to this, all forms that dill'er in the slightest from the tvpi- have been 
preserved ; so that of species of wide distribution there are in some cases as many as twonty-tivc or 
thirty sheets of specimens. Tho value of this is shown when tho extreme eastern ami western forms 
of common species are compared. Those of the east often appear to present good varietal diU'ci-ences 
from those of tho west; but when the specimens from various other parts of tho Dominion are com- 
pared with them, it is frequently found that they represent intermediate forms running into one 
another, that though the extreme forms, when coiixidercd alone, might be taken to lie separate 
varieties, the intermediate forms show that this is not the case. The greatest value of such an 
herbarium lies in its ottering a ready means for the determination of doubtful specimens collected l>v 
local botanists. What may appear to them a new variety of a plant with which they are familiar 
may prove to be only a form that is common elsewhere. It is important, therefore, that when 
possible specimens of all divergent forms should be sent to the "national " herbarium. 

In order to encourage the formation of private and other herbaria, Professor .Macoun has ottered 
to receive specimens from any locality and to give in exchange for them an equal number of the desi- 
derata of the person or society sending them. Tho only proviso being that the specimens he from 
the vicinity in which tho collector resides, and not from several parts of a province. To facilitate 
such exchange, check-lists will bo sent to all who may apply for them. All communications connected 
with such exchange should be addressed to tho 


Geological Survey Department, 

Letters and parcels of specimens are transmitted to this address without postage, according to law. 

4- The place and date of every specimen should always accompany it. If this label be lo.-it the 
specimen may be valueless. If the label should happen to go with the wrong specimen it is worse

5. The most convenient manner of obtaining the determination of plants from the curator of the 
Canadian herbarium or any other botanist, is to make an exact duplicate of tho set, the specimens 
being similarly numbered. Tho botanist determining the plants keeps the set sent him, and returns 
simply a list of the names corresponding to each number. Great care must be taken, especially in 
the case of the smaller Cryptogams, that one and the same species are in the duplicates. Mistakes 
often occur from the indiscriminate division of a tuft of moss or lichen supposed to contain only one 
species, while it may contain two or more, and even these in different proportions, in tho supposed 


"The local prens will no doubt help in this work with pleasure and profit, nnd its powerful aid 
slinuld not only be invoked, but also duly appreciated by the botanist*. Where there is no botanist 
to commence work, all that is necessary is to get one or more collectors, whose collections can bo 
determined and named at any time. Such collectors will find their correspondence with the club 
officers an admirable means of facilitating their own botanical studies and of speedily transforming 
them into genuine botanists."

XVI. From The American J-'olk- Society (Montreal Branch), through Mr. JOHN UEADE. 

The fifth annual meeting of the American Folk-Lore Society was held at Montreal on the 13th 
and 14th of September, 18'.'3, Prof. I). P. Penhallow. of Mcdill University, second vice-president, in 
the chair. 

After an address of welcome from the chairman, tho secretary, Mr. W. W. Newell, read a letter 
that he had received from tho president, Mr. Horatio Hale, M.A., of Clinton, Ont., in which ho 
regretted that the state of his health would not permit him to be present, and set forth the lines 
of research comprised under the head of folk-lore. 

Mr. Newell then read the report of the council, which showed steady progress both in member- 
ship and work accomplished. The society had been incorporated by an act of the Massachusetts legis- 
lature. The number of local branches had increased. Advance had been made in tho project of 
publishing a aerie* of folk lore monographs to be entitled " Memoirs of tho American Folk-Lore 
Society," and the first volume of the series, " Folk-Tales of Angola," collected and edited by Mr. Heli 
Chatelain, late of Loanda. Africa, was already passing through the press. Another volume, by Prof. 
Alcte Forlier, of Tulane University, New Orleans, would deal with the dialect tales of Louisiana. 

Tho report having been adopted and other business disposed of, the following papers were read 
or presented : 

Canadian Folk-Songs, by Mr. John Keude. 

On the Origin of Some Popular Oaths, by Mr. J. M. LeMoine. 

Some Causes of the Retarded Development of African Civilization, by Mr. Heli Chatelain, 

late of Loanda, Africa. 

Indian Writing and Hieroglyphics, by Mr. H. Beaugrand. 
The Study of Folk-Lore : its Material and Objects, by Mr. W. W. Newell. 
Mythology of tho Columbian Discovery of America, by Dr. A. F. Chamberlain.

SESSION II. (May 22nd). 

The Royal Society and delegates held a public meeting in the evening at 8 o'clock, in the 
Assembly Hall. His Excellency the Governor-General presided as honorary president Among the 
large audience present were Her Excellency the Countess of Aberdeen, His Honour Lieutenant-Gov- 
ernor Schultz, Mrs. Schultz, and many prominent citizens of Ottawa; and the distinguished visitors 
from the United States, Dr. Justin Winsor, Professor S. H. Scudder, Professor O. C. Marsh, Professor 
B. E. Fernow. 

After a few remarks by His Excellency the Governor-General, the retiring president, Dr. G. M. 
Dawson, C.M.G., F.R.S., delivered the annual address as follows : 



In a society formed to include as fur as possible representatives of ull branches of literature 
and of hcience, it appears to be nio.-t appropriate that the president for the time being should 
devote the address whii-h it is his privilege to deliver, to Borne specific topic, or to the consideration 
of such matters of interest or im|>ortnnco as may lie particularly in his own line of work or thought. 
At the last meeting of the Society, Dr. Iknirinot presented a masterly essay under the title of 
" Canada's Intellectual Strength and Weakness," dealing principally though not exclusively with the 
literary. artistic and political development of the country. It may now be of some interest and 
service tu supplement thi- e>say by a very general and very brief review of what has been accom- 
plished, and what remains I" be accomplished in ( 'anada. I)}' various scientific agencies working in the 
investiir-itjnii !' I In- natural features and towards the development of the natural resources of the 

\\ c lind ourselves |M-M'>-ed in ' 'anada of a country vast in its dimensions, but of which the popu- 
lati'.ri is a- ye! comparatively small. If. therefm-e, we have good reason to believe that the natural 
resource- "I mil territory :uo in any respect commensurate with its aro:i, wo may look forward with 
e.iniideiiee (.. a L -ie:i! future. Hut in order that this maybe realized properly and soon, wo must 
devote ourselves to the exploration and definition of our latent wealth, and to the solution of the 
problem-- which inevitably arise in the course of its utilization under circumstances which are often 
more or lc>- entirely novel. For HIM purpose, we are provided at the present day with methods, 
appliances and an amount of accumulated knowledge not previously thought of, but which wo must 
|M' prepared to enli-t in our service if our purpose is to be achieved. 

Ii is unsatisfactory to read, as we often may, the statement that ('anada is possessed of " unlim- 
ited natural resources," for such a statement means little more than that we have boon unable to 
make even a reasonably complete inventory of these resources. In order intelligently to guide the 
work of those endeavouring to utilize the benefits given to us by nature in the rough, and to attract 
population and capital for this end, it is necessary to be much more specific. It is true that great 
regions of < 'anada still remain very imperfectly or almost altogether unexplored, but we are never- 
theless already in a position to form some general estimate of the importance and character of the 
prodiii-tH which the country at a whole is best capable of yielding. Thus, in respect to mineral 
wealth, 1 believe we are justified in assuming that Canada is equally rich with any known area of the 
earth's surface of comparable dimensions. So, in regard to products of the sea, these, relatively to 
oar length ofcoa-t line and this is very great are probably at least as valuable as those of any other 
similar length of coast. Of arable and pastoral land, because of the rigorous climate of the northern 
portions of the geographical urea of Canada, the extent is not commensurate with that of the country, 
but it is practically so great that we may bo pardoned if describing it at present as " unlimited." As 
the natural wealth represented by our forests, it is probably correct to state that Canada is still 
capable of affording more timber than any other country in the northern hemisphere; but of this, 
with the constant and increasing drafts ii]x>n it, we can already begin to see the end, unless some 
ive in.-a-iit e tdiall be Uikcn, and that soon, toward* its conservation and reproduction. Wo have, 
in fact, yet to leain to regard a forest as a special kind of farm, in which, if wo do not sow, we cannot 
hoj> to reap perennially. 

, however, my purpose to enter into any details respecting the natural wealth of the 

wintry, but raiher to point out as briefly as may be what has been done and what still remains to be 

mpli-hwJ by means of the various scientific organizations and associations of Canada, in aid of the 

utilization of them) resogrcwi, in the matter of making them known to the world at large, and toward 


the solution of various important questions which lie before us in connection with them. Science is 
but another and a convenient name for organized knowledge, and as such it has entered so largely 
into every branch of human effort, that when, at the present time, any one attempts to pose as a 
" practical " in contradistinction to a scientific worker, he may bo known to be a relic of the past age, 
in which much was done by rule of thumb and without any real knowledge of the principles involved. 
Neither can we safely make any division between what is sometimes called " practical " or '' applied " 
science and science in general, for the knowledge must be gained before it can lie applied, and it is 
scarcely yet possible to bar any avenue of research with a placard of "no thoroughfare," as an assur- 
ance that it cannot lead to any material useful end. 

At the same time, there are certain directions in which investigation is very closely wedded to 
results of immediate and tangible value, and it is practically in such directions that the State may 
reasonably be expected to exercise its activity. But the line should not be too rigorously drawn, for 
should the investigator for a time stray into some by-path of research, because of his individual 
interest in his work, it is not improbable that be may return from his excursion with some unexpected 
discovery, which may prove to have important bearings on the problems of every -day life. Take, for 
example, the study of Palaeontology which, relating as it docs, to extinct forms of life, might appear 
to be a branch of science wholly removed from any practical object, however interesting it ma}- lie to 
disinter and to reconstruct these remarkable forms. Hut we all know that this study has become an 
indispensable one as an aid to the classification of the rock formations and thus to the search for llie 
useful minerals which some of these contain. This is more particularly the case perhaps in the 
instance of coal beds, which are usually confined in each region to some set of strata, which may be 
defined with precision only by the aid of the evidence afforded by fossil remains. 

Before going further and entering into the principal subject of my remarks, I should make it 
clearly understood that in endeavouring to give some account of the several agencies of scientific 
work in Canada, it is my purpose to refer to those only which may be considered as engaged in 
widening the borders of knowledge by means of original research, tending more or less directly to 
the development of our natural resources and advantages. Thus the very numerous matters in which 
science has already been enlisted in every-day service of a routine character will not be alluded to, 
neither is it intended to allude to the numerous educational institutions in which a scientific training 
is given ; nor is it possible, within the limits by which I must be bounded, to note the results which 
have accrued from the individual labours of scientific workers throughout the country, though in 
many cases these have been of the most creditable and important character. 


may be said to be the senior or doyen among the scientific efforts of the Canadian Government, for 
although the Magnetic Observatory had been established some years earlier in Toronto, it did not 
till long afterwards come under the control of the government of Canada. 

The first effort made toward the establishment of a Geological Survey in Canada, appears in a 
petition addressed to the House of Assembly of Upper Canada in 1832, by Dr. John Rao. .Nothing, 
however, came of this or of several other attempts of the same kind, till in the first united Parliament 
of Upper and Lower C'anada, in 1841, the Natural History Society of Montreal and the Historical 
Society of Quebec joined in urging the matter upon the government, with the result that the modest 
sum of 1,500 sterling was granted for the purpose of beginning such a survej'. 

The selection of a geologist was referred to the Secretary of State for the Colonies, by Sir Charles 
Bagot, the governor, and on the recommendation of the best known geologists of the day in England, 
Logan, afterwards so well known as Sir William Logan, was appointed. Born in Montreal in 1798, 
he was at the time forty-four years of age, and his admirable work in the survey of the South Wales 

1 Most of the notes here given relating to the early history of the Geological Survey are derived from Dr. B. J. 
Harrington's life of Sir William Logan, Montreal, 1883. 


coal fields, had attracted the attention of Sir Henry De la Bocho, under whose auspices the Geological 
Survey of Great Britain had lately been inaugurated. In 1843, Logan entered upon his new duties, 
with the greatest possible zeal, and for more than twenty-five years the history of the Survey and 
that of its director were the name. 

It must be remembered that at thin time the utility of geological purveys had only begun to be 
generally recognized, and the Survey of (i real Britain, which became the parent and model of so many 
others, was scarcely twelve years old. 

It is not my purpose to follow, even in outline, the story of the progress and results of this 
Survey; but as it has very recently celebrated the fiftieth anniversary of its foundation, it may be 
useful to refer to some matters connected with its work which early impressed themselves upon ita 
first director, several of which still retain the importance they had at that time. 

In 1854. a select committee of the legislature was appointed to investigate the working of the 
Snrvcv. Ample evidence was produced of its utility within the limits possible with the small amount 
o: ni'Hicv granted, and so thoroughly were the members of the committee satisfied on this point that 
they ivco'iitncnded the provision of greatly increased facilities for the enterprise. 

When before the committee, Logan was asked what the principal difficulties he had met with 
were; ho replied : " Independently of those unavoidably incident to travelling in canoes up shallow 
' river-, or on toot through the forest, are those arising from the want of a good topographical map 
of the country. Accurate topography is the basis of accurate geology." In answer to other ques- 
tion- relating to thoconnectimi between the ' scientific" and the "practical" result* of the Geological 
Survev, he ad<luce<i a number of instances showing this connection which had already occurred in the 
course <>f the work then done, and added: "The object of the survey is to ascertain the mineral 
resources of the country, and this is kept steadily in view. Whatever new scientific facts have re- 
Miltc-l from it, have come out in the course of what I conceive to bo economic researches carried 
" on in what I conceive I" lie a scientific way.'' 

I'nlnrtunately the complaint made at this time in regard to the want of trustworthy topogra- 
phical maps -till holds, anil this want yet constitutes an important obstacle, oven in some parts of the 
country which have long been inhabited and are thickly peopled. Unfortunately too, there are still 

f.iund, even in these days of popular education, those who call aloud for " practical results " 
without appreciating the necessary concurrent or antecedent stages of scientific investigation by 
means of which such results may be attained, or the way of attaining which is thus evidenced and 
made plain. 

To take a very recent instance of what I mean, allusion may be made to the present conditions 
in the region about Ilainy Lake, in western Ontario. It had long been known to geologists that 
among the Archa-an or oldest rocks of the eastern part of Canada, those of the Huronian system are 
often found to contain metalliferous deposits of value. No such deposits had been found in this 
particular region, but several years ago iu rocks wore carefully mapped out. Within the last few 
months veins of gold-bearing quarts have boon discovered in these rocks, and hundreds of prospectors 
are flocking to the district, while the Geological Survey is besieged for copies of the map, by which 
the researches of the miner may bo guided. Meanwhile, the Survey is at work elsewhere in preparing 
similar map*, and though it is not always possible to be, as in this instance, in advance of the pros- 
pector, he may at least in most cases be followed up pretty closely. 

At about the time ut which the committee of inquiry above referred to wa constituted, Logan had 
b*cnpre*ed to accept a geological appointment under the government of India, but fortunately for 
Canada and for the continuity of iU Geological Survey, he declined the appointment. Writing to his 
friend, Ie la Heche, on this matter, he says: " Just look at Arrowsmith's little map jf British North 
America, dedicated to the Hudson's Bay Company, published in 1842. * * * You will see that Canada 
*.mpriM* hut small part of it. Then examine the groat rivers and lakes which water the interior 
between that American Baltic, Hudson's Bay, and the Pacific Ocean some of the rivers as great as 


the St. Lawrence, and some of the lakes nearly as large as our Canadian internal seas, with a climate, 
as I am informed, gradually improving as you go westward, and becoming delightful on the Pacific. 
It will be a great country hereafter. But who knows anything of it geology ? Well, I have a sort 
of presentiment that I shall yet, if I live long enough, be employed by the British Government, under 
the Survey you direct, to examine as much of it as I can, and that I am here in Canada only learning 
my lesson, as it were, in preparation." He then states that ho had been informed of the existence of 
coal in the Saskatchewan territory and Oregon, adding : " In Oregon the value of coal for the supply 
of steamers protecting and connected with our new Chinese trade will perhaps soon be felt, and it 
might be an item worthy of the attention of the British Government in any settlement of the Oregon 
question with the Americans. When the British Government gave up tho Michigan territory at the 
end of the last American war, with as little concern as if it, had been so much bare granite, I dare say 
they were not aware that 12,000 square miles of coal field existed in the heart of it." 

This it will be remembered was written as long ago as 1845, and what Logan then foresaw has 
since come to pass, though not precisely in the manner he anticipated. Some years later (1H51) Sir 
John Richardson, after his journey through tho northern part of tho continent in search of Franklin, 
was still able to write thus : 

" Beyond Lake Winnipeg no geologist has yo( penetrated and tho descriptions of the rocks 
occurring within tho space of twenty degrees of latitude that lie to the north of that sheet of water 
are, with all their imperfections, entirely my own. It would be true economy in the Imperial ( iovrrn- 
mont, or in the Hudson's Bay Company, who are the virtual sovereigns of the vast territory which 
spreads northwards from Lake Superior, to ascertain without delay the mineral treasures it contains. 
I have little doubt of many of tho accessible districts abounding iti metallic wo:ilth of far greater 
value than all the returns which the fur trade will ever yield. 1 '' 

Following Richardson, tho first fruits of geological exploration in the western part of tho 
Dominion, were gathered by Dr. (now Sir James) Hector, attached to the liritish Xortli American 
Exploring Expedition in 1857 to 1860, by Professor Hind, despatched by the Canadian (iovornnu'iit 
in connection with the Assiniboine and Saskatchewan Exploring Expedition in 1858, and by the N'orth 
American Boundary Commission, with which I had the honour to bo associated, in 187'! and 1871. 
But at about the same time with the work of tho last mentioned expedition, tho investigations of tho 
Canadian Geological Survey were extended to the Northwest Territories, and Logan (who had then 
retired from the directorship of tho Survey) had at least tho satisfaction of seeing before his death. 
which occurred soon after, tho initiation, under tho auspices of the Survey which he may be said to 
have created, of the work which ho had outlined so many years previously and had then hoped to 
have himself taken part in. 

This work has since been continued, with results which may be stated without contradiction to 
have been of great importance to the settlement of tho country and to the development of railways 
in it. 

The extension of the work of the Geological Survey above alluded to, followed naturally from tho 
confederation of the various parts of British North America. It was no longer limited to Upper and 
Lower Canada, but spread to the maritime provinces in the east and over a truly vast area to the 
west and north. 

The general nature of the objects to bo attained by the Geological Survey, as originally contem- 
plated, were set out as follows in Logan's own words, incorporated in the act of 1845 : " To make an 
accurate and complete geological survey of tho province, and furnish a full and scientific description 
of the rocks, soils and minerals, which shall be accompanied with proper maps, diagrams and drawings, 
together with a collection of specimens to illustrate the same ; which maps, diagrams, drawings and spe- 
cimens shall be deposited in some suitable place, which the Governor-General in Council shall appoint, 

1 Arctic searching expedition ; a Journal of a boat voyage through Rupert's Land und the Arctic Sea. London, 


ami shall serve as a provincial collection. Any duplicates of the same, after they have served the pur- 
pOBce of the Survey, shall be deposited in such literary and educational institutions of the eastern and 
western divisions of (ho province as by the same authority shall be deemed most advantageous." 

Tlio Inter act under which the Geological Survey is now carried on, specifies the nature of its 
operation* in somewhat greater detail, but the general linos thus originally laid down have not 
changed, although the scope of its operations has, from the very necessities of the case, gradually 
enlarged. The investigators in the Meld found themselves everywhere in contact with the flora, the 
fauna, the climatic conditions and the native races, and, particularly in the less known regions where 
all these presented new features and where no other scientific agencies were at work, it did not 
liehoovo ivallv intelligent observers to omit to record and, in so far as possible, to study those subjects 
when (ipporlunitv otl'erotl. Time, Iwtany and, to some extent also, zoology have become auxiliary 
branches nf the work "f the Survey, and in l>oth subjects much useful work has already been done, 
while far in relating to ethnology, meteorology and other similar subjects are contained in appendices 
tn in:inv f the published report*. The statistical return* of mines and minerals have also of late 
years I'ccn given a prominent place; aii'l from the very first, much geographical and topographical 
work \\-.\- licfii unavoidably assumed by the explorers. 

The field work of ihe Geological Survey necessarily began with exploratory trips in. which the 
main feature^ to be dealt with, in a country almost entirely unknown geological I}', wore ascertained. 
In maiiv parts even of the older provinces such explorations arc still requisite, but in most of those 
province-, it bei-ame possible after a time to proceed with the more systematic mapping of definite 
aiva-. the map sh. ets produced forming parts of a connected whole. When the great western regions 
wen- added to the lield, these could only be attacked by extended exploratory journeys in which 
geolugv ami geography went hand in bund. As it is now, the tielil work of the Survey may be divided 
under thri e ela-.-es : (1) Reconnaissance surveys. (2). The approximate mapping of large ATOM 
on a -mall -ca!e. ('.',). Finished map sheds on a larger scale and forming continuous series. All these 
three class, of work arc in progress concurrently in different districts, while the auxiliary chemical, 
pnhcontoliigical and lithological investigations in the office arc kept in touch with the field work and 
render it possible to bring this together in a homogeneous form. Were there in existence any com- 
plete topographical maps of Canada, approaching in accuracy to those which have been made in older 
countries, much more geological work could be accomplished with a given amount of money and in a 
given time, and thus the construction of such maps must bo stated yet to be, as it has been from the 
beginning of the Survey, one of the principal desiderata. There is, however, one other matter which 
at the present moment must be regarded as even more urgent, and one which might bo attained 
within it short time and at a relatively small cost. This is the construction of a suitable and safe 
museum building for the preservation and display of the important collection which has grown up as 
the result of 80 many years of investigation. This collection is not merely a matter of record, closely 
connected with all the publications of the Survey, but it is fitted to become also a great educational 
and I may add a groat advertising medium in regard to the mineral resources of the country. With 
proper accommodation it* utility could bo vastly increased for all purposes. 

Nothing can be adduced which is more creditable to the system of government in Canada, than 
the quietly persistent and uninterrupted supjwrt accorded to the Geological Survey by every political 
party, but it remains to provide such a museum building and centre for the work as that of which I 
have spoken, and it may be confidently asserted that nothing would be more favourably received by 
the general public. This museum should be of a national character, and there is every reason to hope 
that when it i* undertaken, it plan will include provision for all the valuable collections which have 
been or may bo made by the several government departments, so that it may form in effect a repre- 
Miitation of the resources, the history and the various linos of activity uf tho whole country. 

It in time, asked : When will the work of the Geological Survey bo completed ? To such 
a question one can only reply, that so long as mining or industrial operations dependent upon the 


minoralsaiul rocks of the country continno, the work of some such department AH the Geological 
Survey will never bo quite completed. We may, it is true, look forward to a time when all accessible 
purls of the country will be geologically examined and mapped, when the expenditure on thin work 
may be relatively diminished; but in a region so vast as the Dominion of Canada, thin time lies in 
the distant future. I have already spoken of " finished maps," but in doing so I employ :i relative 
torm. The maps so described vary much in their amount of detail and accuracy, not only as between 
themselves but also in different parts of a single sheet. As settlement progresses and as now sources 
of mineral wealth are discovered, it will become possible and necessary to add largely to the detail 
and accuracy of many of these maps. But apart from this primary condition it will always bo 
requisite to place on record and keep up to date, for public use and reference, tin- developments made 
in the mining and utilization of mineral products and to paint out in the case of new discoveries, in 
the light of our knowledge of the geological structure of the country, where and in what manner 
further developments of the same kind may reasonably be anticipated. 


Although I have stated that the Geological Survey was the first scientific branch of the Govern- 
ment service established by Canada, it must be noted that several ye:irs previous to its inception the 
Magnetic Observatory had been founded at Toronto. This, however, was not at that time under de- 
control of the Canadian Government, but had been originated and was supported for man}- years bv 
the Imperial Government. It was established as the result of representations made bv the I'.i-iti-h 
Association for the Advancement of Science, at its meeting in Newcastle in 1S;;8, acting in conjunction 
with the -Royal Society of England, and as a part of a system of magnetic research on sea an 1 in the 
colonial possessions of Great Britain. 

The observations wore actually begun, under Lieutenant ('. .1. B. Iliddell of the IJoyal Arlillerv, 
with three non-commissioned officers of the same force, in IS.'iO. Toronto had been selected as the best 
place for the observatory, and for a time the observations were conducted in a barrack situated in 
what then represented the city of Toronto ; but in (bo next year, a log building was erected as an 
observatory on the site still occupied, a grant of two acres and a halt of land having been accorded for 
the purpose by the University of King's College, now the University of Toronto. The lir-t director 
was succeeded by Lieut. Lefroy, II. A., afterwards so well known as General Sir .1. II. Lefrov. for his 
various scientific researches. From its foundation, up to 1853. the expense of maintenance of this 
observatory was defrayed by the Imperial Government, after which it was supported by the United 
Provinces of Canada, till at the time of confederation it passed under the charge of the Dominion 

Meteorological observations had been made concurrently with those relating to magnetism, from 
the time of the establishment of the observatory; but it was not until 1871 that the Canadian Govern- 
ment first made a grant of $5,000 for a meteorological service. Prof. G. T. Kingston, who had boon 
appointed director of the Magnetic Observatory in 1855, was an enthusiast in meteorology, and in 
1869 he had succeeded in establishing a voluntary meteorological association among a number of 
amateur observers in Canada. In 1871, in conjunction with Dr. Smallwood, who had long maintained 
weather observations in the vicinity of Montreal, he represented the importance of the work to the 
Dominion Government with such force, that the initial grant above referred to was made in favour 
of the work. Communication was then had with the United States Signal Service, which had been 
established a few years previously, and a system of exchange of telegraphic weather reports was 
arranged for. 

Professor Kingston's first report on the work, published in 1872, a model of concise statements, 
shows how clearly he had, even at that time, the proper constitution and future lines of develop- 
ment of the meteorological service mapped out before him. He then had one hundred and twenty- 
three stations in Canada and two in Newfoundland in communication with him. 

Proa 1894. H. 


In 1876, the issue of daily weather forecast* and storm warnings was begun, and since that time 
these have become so much a part of the evory-day life of the country, that it is unnecessary to enter 
into any explanation of their character or to present any plea in their favour. They are equally 
important and necessary to the farmer as to the navigator, and are, in addition, of value in a hundred 

other ways. 

In 1SSO. owing to failing health, Professor Kingston retired, and was then succeeded by the pre- 
sent director, Mr. Carpmacl, under whose control the service has grown, till there are at the present 
time over four hundred stations in Canada reporting to the central office, of which twenty nine make 
daily telegraphic lejxn-U, useful primarily in affording data for the weather forecasts. The meteoro- 
logical service thus developed naturally (nun the Magnetic Observatory, and both have become merged 
in a common organization, the growth of the meteorological work now perhaps overshadowing the 
original inagneiir purpose of the observatory in its immediate interest, though the importance of 
the magnetic observations lias never been lo.-t sight of. 

In Professor Kindlon s first report, already alluded to, he specifics throe matters, which, as he 
sav-. Ih'inifh line. nnected with the subject of the report, by reason of their importance "justify my 
introdu^im; them tn your notice." These are us follows: 

1 Arrangements forgiving the correct local time throughout the Dominion. 

'_' Tin- determination of the latitude- and longitudes of places. 

;;. The rectification of the magnetic chart-' of Hritish North America, and more particularly the 
correct determination of the i-o^.inic line- or linen of equal magnetic declination. 

I mention these desiderata here for the purpose of stating in how far they have since been sup- 
plied. The lir-t item has now, largely in consequence of the development of telegraphs and railway 
linen, been prettv satisfactoi -ily covered. It has been greatly facilitated by the system of stand- 
ard time, which one of our members, Mr. Sundfoid Fleming, C.M.ft., has been so largely connected 
with bringing into employment. 

The determination of latitudes and longitudes yet remains to bo fully accomplished. Much 
accurate work of this kind ha- been done in connection with the Dominion land surveys in the far 
we.-t. but many large towns in the eastern provinces, not to mention places of smaller importance, 
are still laid down on the map only approximate! v and with large possible errors. The longitude of 
Montreal ha- long been that most accurately fixed, this having been done by telegraphic comparisons 
between the observatories of Mcdill and Harvard universities ; but the methods of effecting such com- 
jMris'ins have, of late years, been so much improved, that it became eminently desirable to effect a 
new determination based directly upon the initial meridian of Greenwich. The Royal Society of 
Canada has been largely instrumental in bringing this about, and in securing the co-operation of the 
Royal Observatory, the Admiralty, and the Department of Marine of Canada for this purpose. The 
requisite observations have since been carried out, and it remains only to complete the reduction of 
the observations to establish the result. We have thus now, in the observatory of Mc<iill Univer- 
sity in Montreal, an excellent ]n>\i\l of reference for the exact determination of all other longitudes in 

Respecting magnetic charts of the Dominion, much also remains to be done, for though scattered 
observations of precision have been made, particularly in the west, no systematic attempt at a 
magnetic survey has liocii undertaken since that accomplished in an extended journey through the 
northern parts of the country in 1842 and 18 J3, by Sir J. H. Lofroy. It is well to remember that the 
magnetic polo itself is situated within the limits of Canada, and that problems of the greatest import- 
Mica, both fn-m a purely scientific and from a practical point of view call for solution by a systematic 
study of iU secular movement as well as of any changes in intensity and dip by which this may be 
accompanied. These are all strictly domestic problems and they should not be left for solution to 
enterprise from abroad. 

In regard to further requirements in connection with the meteorological service, it is of course 
much to be desired that the number of stations, and particularly that of those reporting telegraph!- 


cally to the central office, may be increased, for all suih increase means greater precision and a longer 
reach in time for tho weather forecasts. There is another mutter, however, to which the director of 
this service has called attention on several occasions, namely, greater facilities for the reduction of 
tho observations and a special appropriation for the production of a climatology of Canada to be 
based upon such reductions. Such a work would bo of essential service from an educational point of 
view and as a record to date of the great mass of observations on the climate of the country which 
have now accumulated. 


Next in order in regard to the date of its inception is tho Dominion lands survey, with a history 
not nearly so long as that of the organizations already noticed, but which has already accomplished a 
great amount of valuable work. 

In 1869, it became evident that some convenient and accurate method must be adopted for the 
subdivisions into farm holdings of tho great western country, which had then recently come under 
tho control of the Dominion. The late Lieut-Col. Dennis, was intrusted with the duty of devising a 
plan of operations, and although the scheme at that time elaborated by him was subsequently consid- 
erably modified, the basis upon which it was drawn up has remained substantially unchanged. While 
tho primary objects of this survey may bo described as cadastral, it must bo classed as a survey of a 
distinctly scientific character, by reason of the great tract of country over which it has extended, and 
the accuracy and refinement of the methods employed, as well as because of its later developments in 
various directions and the great body of trustworthy observations on the general character of the 
country which have been brought together by its means. 

The actual work of surveying can scarcely be said to have begun until 1S71, in which year also 
the first edition of a Manual of Surveys, explaining and affording the requisite data tor the methods 
to be employed, was published. These were primarilj 1 , tho establishment of a number of " prin- 
cipal meridians," crossed at certain intervals by lines known as ' ; base-linos " and corrtction- 
lines," the whole forming the skeleton for tho division into rectangular townships, sections and 
quarter-sections. Upon the '' correction lines " the "jog" resulting from the convergence of merid- 
ians was allowed for, and methods of chock were established intended to insure the greatest accuracy 
in the whole of the work. 

In 1874 and 1875, a system of triangulation was undertaken, under the immediate superinten- 
dence of Mr. Lindsay Russell, by which it was proposed to establish the ruling points of the entire 
survey, beginning at an initial point near the Red River; but owing to various causes, this was not 
continued much beyond the 102nd meridian. Since 1875 the ruling points of tho survey have been 
established astronomically, and telegraphically. 

Until 1884, this system of surveys had been confined to Manitoba and the Northwest Territories, 
where a great extent of country had already been covered, but in that year work was extended to the 
so-called " Railway belt" in British Columbia. This was continued and telegraphic determinations of 
longitude were made in British Columbia and in tho Northwest Territories in 1885 and 188C. 

In 188C, also, topographical surveys of the western mountainous region were begun, which have 
since covered considerable tracts of country. In the following year, tho photo-topographical method 
of survey was introduced in connection with this branch of the work, and though much has been said 
for and against this particular method, it must be admitted that under the direction of Capt. Deville, 
the surveyor-general, it has accomplished excellent results in practice, and has been developed into 
a method of precision, and upon a scale not heretofore considered possible. 

No detailed mention is here called for of the continued progress from year to year of the ordinary 
work of the Dominion lands survey; although it may be affirmed, that no region comparable in 
size to that over which its operations have extended has ever before been so expeditiously and so 
accurately surveyed for purposes of settlement. But the work still to be accomplished and the 


requisite expansion of the activity of this survey or somo oven more comprehensive one which may 
grow out of it, is still very groat. While the methods heretofore employed may be described as next 
best to those of a trigonometrical survey, it if the experience of other countries that such a survey is 
ooential as a basis for the complete geographical delineation of any groat area. The topographical 
work proper, embracing hypsometric determinations and leading to the production of contoured maps, 
can only bo considered as begun, while the demand for such maps is yearly becoming greater, not 
only in the Kockv Mountain region, where mining and other operations are extending in advance of 
the geographer, but also on the great plains and in the foothills, where schemes of irrigation are 
already lcing discussed, for which maps of this kind, together with accurate determinations of the 
volume of water carried by the rivers and streams, are absolutely necessary. 

SD far, 1 have spoken only :>f the western lands which are under the direct control of the 
I > minion Government. It must not bo forgotten that the actual state of the geographical delinea- 
tion K|" tin' i, MIT provinces leave* much to bo desired. Many parts of those wore surveyed during the IH-I..I v "f the country by methods which would now bo regarded as extremely primitive, while 
n p -ii'-h tiling :is a topographical map. properly so called, exists for any considerable tract in any of 
the-e I'p'vii.ccs ; although some approximations to such maps have had to bo attempted in certain 
district-. IP\- i lie < I. -illogical Survey, for its own purposes. It is possible only to form an adequate idea 

I' the eoiiijplirated inacciiraeic-i of the older html surveys, when an attempt is made to combine thorn 
into ruin': Tnt map> nl' largo areas. 

It i-. iheiTt'iire now most desirable that some system of survey of a gcnei al kind, based upon 
modem and accurate methods, should be extended throughout the Dominion. Exactly what form 

ii'-h a sv-trin shoul'l take or under what au-pices it should bo carried out, 1 do not venture to 
-u^'gi'-t , but it i- eh-ar that something in the nature of an established geodetic survey must bo ranked 
a- aiming the requirements of the immediate future. 


Thi- branch of the public service was established as the result of the recommendation of a select 
coininitti-c of the House of Commons appointed in 1881 to inquire into the best moans of encouraging 
and developing the agricultural resources of Canada. Mr. G. A. Gigault was chairman of this 
committee, and in iSSt!, in consequence of the ctl'orts of Sir John Carling, then minister of agricul- 
ture, the "' Kxpcrimcntal Farm System Act" was passed, and the organization of the work began in 
the same year. 

It is thus only about seven years since the initial steps in this new scionti6c enterprise of the 
government were taken, but in that time, thanks to the energy and ability of the director and start' of 
the farms, great progress has been made, and the way has been opened in many directions for still 
further usefulness. Besides the central farm at Ottawa, which was first undertaken, branch farms 
have been established for the Maritime Provinces, Manitoba and the Northwest Territories and 
British Columbia. 

If any line can be drawn between that which may be described as strictly practical and that 
which may bo called purely scientific work, it will bo found to run through the centre of the field of 
operations of the Experimental Farms. An inspection of the reports already published will show 
that the work consist* largely of submitting actual observations in the field to scientific tests, and in 
the application in turn of the best rosulu of scientific knowledge to matters of overy-day importance 
on ovary farm throughout the land. 

It is, however, from the side of original scientific investigations, rather than from that of applied 
cienco, that I am regarding tho work carried on by the government at the present moment, and from 
thin point of view, the following may perhaps be selected for mention from among tho many lines of 
work undertaken in this service : 



One of these is the origination of new crosses or hybrids of cereals, fruits, and other useful plants 
to meet the requirements of the varied climates and conditions of different parts of Canada. Special 
attention is drawn to the importance of these experiments by the director of the farms, who states 
that a large number of such new forms are already under cultivation and observation. Their 
importancj will be obvious to anyone who considers, in view of the great area over which any crop 
may bo grown, how great a financial benefit must accrue to the fanner if he is placed in possession of 
a variety of grain capable of producing any substantial increase of yield to the acre. Even in the 
case of fodder plants, the introduction of a now variety capable of producing a larger yield of hay or 
ensilage to a given area, means, in concrete form, that the farmer may be able to keep and to market 
a proportionally greater number of cattle than may before have been possible. 

Other branches of the work involving much original research arc : the investigation, by chemical 
analysis, of soils, in their relation to fertilizers, and of grains, grasses, fodder plants and other products 
of the farm, by which a fundamental knowledge of their respective value and of the best and most 
profitable methods of their treatment may be arrived at and the stud}' of insects and parasitic plants 
injurious or beneficial lo vegetation and to stock, such as to enable the pests of the agriculturist to bo 
combattcd cither by methods which may be classed as direct or !>} means which are indirect. The latter 
implies a study of the life-history of the forms to bo dealt with, including not only those which arc 
native to the country, but those also which may bo from time to time introduced, such as the 
Colorado Potato Beetle, the Horn Fly and many others. It includes also the study of the best 
means of counteracting the attacks by all those lower forms of vegetation, known as rust, smut. 
mould or mildew, which prey upon the plants which arc the special care of the farmer. 

Even in connection with the familiar and almost world old operation-: of butter and cheese 
making, the results of purely scientific investigations are now being proved to have a great 
importance. I do not refer merely to the best mechanical methods of dealing with the milk from 
which these are made, but particularly to the fact that the nature of the vegetable ferments which act 
upon this milk and upon the cheese, after it has been produce I, ar:> now known to give character to 
the product. That is to say, the effect of inoculation of the mass with some particular species of 
ferments is favourable, while the presence of others is deleterious. Thus the results obtained in the 
whole field of bacteriology are being made contributory to the success of the dairy. Already in 
Denmark "pure cultures" of certain kinds of ferments are beginning to be regarded as necessary to 
the success of the butter maker, and essays of a similar kind are actually in progress here. 

It is not possible to refer in detail to the innumerable experiments and tests being made or which 
may be made of varieties of plants and animals which may be already well known, but of which it is 
desirable to ascertain those best suited to the actual circumstances of the country. Nor is it possible 
to enter into questions such as the tests of fertilizers, the testing of the vitality of seeds, or the 
propagation of trees suited for planting on the plains of the Northwest. Though a part of the useful 
work of the farms, these do not imply original research in the same measure with those subjects 
already alluded to. Neither can I at this time refer to the methods adopted of making the information 
gained available to the public, such as the publication of special bulletins and reports of progress, the 
distribution of samples of seed grain (which in 1892 reached the number of 30,000) and of young trees 
for plantations. All these are obviously the necessary outcome of the work done on the farms. It 
is in addition most important by such means to make known throughout Canada the results which 
have already, or may from time to time bo reached by experiments conducted by similar institutions 
in the United States or elsewhere, many of which are equally applicable here. 

In his report for 1892, the Secretary of Agriculture of the United States writes with reference to 
the similar work carried on by his department : " The Natioual Government has taken, as it were, a 
contract with the farmers, and to carry it out efficiently this department must be prepared to answer 
all reasonable expectations in bringing into the service of agriculture all that science, whether in this 
country or in any other country upon the globe, has been able to evolve for ite benefit." 


Thin expression may serve as a general indication of the ficope of the work lying before the 
Kxpcri mental Farms, but in order to show more clearly into how many branches this work may 
ultimately divide itself, it may further be noted that in the volume just alluded to reports are 
contained from the chief of a bureau of animal industry, a chemist, an entomologist, an ornithologist, 
a mammalogiM, a botanist, a chief of division of pathology, a pomologist, a microscopist, a chief of 
division of forestry, a special agent in charge of fibre investigations and a chief of seed division, 
besides executive and some other special reports. All these lines of investigation and more, are 
c<ju:illv im|N>r(ant to the agricultural industry in Canada, and while it may no doubt bo some time 
before tlio area to IH) covered can l>o divided under so many separate heads, it will obviously conduce to 
tin- value of the results to place each branch of the work as far as possible in the hands of some 
trained specialist. 

Ik-fore concluding this brief review of the i-evoral branches of scientific research or work carried 
on by the government, allusion inu^t l>o made to several comparatively lato undertakings of this 
nature begun under the auspices of the Department of Marine and Fisheries. 

l'ndcr the name ol the "(ieorgian Hay Survey," :i hydrographic survey of the Canadian portion 
of the (treat Laker, was begun in 18S.'!, and several excellent charU of the northern part of Lake 
Huron liave already been published. The outline of the northern shores of the Great Lakes had up 
t . ibis tune de|>eiided mi old siirvev- by Admiral Bayfield, which, though exceedingly good as 
ivcoiinai-sanee work, have long cea.scd to bo up to the requirements of the increased and increasing 
navigation of th.--c water-. As many parts of our sea coasts, both on the Atlantic and Pacific side, 
should now al-o be rccliartcd and more acrurately laid down, it is to be hoped that this hydrographic 
. tu:iv U- eontiniieil and extended. An able plea for the establish in out of a regular hydrographic 
siirxev wa. it will be remembered, laid before this Society by I'rof. Johnson at the last meeting. 

When the Itritish Association for the Advancement of Science mot in Montreal in 1884, a com- 
mittee n!' that holy which had lor many years been engaged on tidal determinations, interested itself 
in the cxt'-n-ion of siic-h observations to ('.inadiati waters, and a joint committee of the Associa- 
tion and of the IJoyal Socic'y of Canada was formed, by which the importance of such observations, 
made - teiuatically and with modern appliances of accuracy, was urged upon the government. In 
IS'.ui, a beginning was made in this work, and provision has since been made for its continuation and 
extension. The earrying oui of such tidal and current observations cannot fail in the near future to 
pro lu< e praetieal results of the greatest importance to shipping, particularly in the gulf of St. 
where a want of proper knowledge of the cm-rente has already often led to groat loss. The 
investigation is essentially a scientific one, involving questions of considerable intricacy, but its 
outcome should 1-e the formulation of plain and definite rules which may servo as a guide to the 

Another promising departure is the initiation of a scientific study of that inostjinportant element 
in the wealth of the country, the fisheries. Much has already been done in Canada in the matter of 
the propagation of food fishes, but much yet remains to be done in investigating the conditions of the 
fisheries of both salt and fresh waters, and it may now be anticipated that before many years an 
im|M>rtant l> of fact will have been built up upon this subject. 

So far, I have npokcn chiefly of the scientific enterprises under the control of the general gov- 
ernment, but it must not be omitted to mention that several at least of the provincial governments 
have contributed their share towards the encouragement of scientific research. This has been done 
very often by according annual grants to the local scientific societies, and in Nova Scotia and in 
British Columbia by the initiation of provincial museums. It is to be hoped that none of the prov- 
ince will long remain without such a museum. Again, in several of the provinces mining depart- 
ment* exint, which though chiefly occupied with economic details and statistics, occasionally afford 
omo contribution to the scientific basis upon which all such work must rest. 


A few words may now bo added respecting the various scientific societies and associations 
throughout the Dominion. Most, if not all of these have, since the organization of the Royal Society 
of Canada, entered into affiliation with it, and send each year to our meetings some representative 
authorized to speak in the name of his society. This fact, with the circumstance that the very inter- 
esting annual summaries of progress made on the part of those societies appear in full in our ' Trans- 
actions,' render it necessary scarcely to do more than to mention the names of the several societies 
for in those statements each has very well told its own story. In so doing I refer, of cour.-e, to those 
only which interest themselves in natural science, as distinguished from literature and history. 

The three oldest Canadian societies of a scientific kind are the Literary and Historical Society 
of Quebec, the Natural History Society of Montreal and the Canadian Institute of Toronto. It is 
perhaps not strange that these societies weie founded in the order above given, which corresponds 
with the order in date of origin of the cities in which they are situated. 

The Literary and Historical Society of Quebec dates from the year 1S2.'!, when it was (bunded 
at the instance of Lord Dalhousio, then governor. The name of this society does not indicate the 
fact that in its transactions are to bo found many important sc"ientitic papers, a fact which enables mo 
to include it for consideration in the present address. The Natural History Society of Montreal closely 
follows the last in the date of its organization, having been incorporated in 18153. The Canadian 
Institute of Toronto comes next, having been incorporated under a royal charter in 1^51. 

These three veteran societies of Canada have almost from the first published their proceedings 
or transactions, and the volumes thus accumulated now form a small library by themselves, and arc 
. particularly in the case of the two societies last mentioned -replete with information on the natural 
history and natural resources of the country, and absolutely indispensable as works of reference to 
the Canadian investigators of the present day. Each of these societies has accumulated and continues 
to maintain a valuable museum. 

The Entomological Society of Ontario, though much later in origin, dating from 1 $(>.'! only, may 
next be alluded to. In 1868, it began the publication of the" Canadian Entomologist," which remained 
for some years thereafter the only publication in America devoted entirely to the science of ento- 
mology. This journal is notable for the amount of original investigation which has appeared in it, 
both of a purely scientific and of a strictly economic character. Its excellence has been freely acknow- 
ledged both in Canada and abroad, and the membership of the society is largo and exceptionally 
active. The Literary and Scientific Society of Ottawa was incorporated in 1860, arising then from 
the fusion of an older Natural History Society with a Mechanics Institute. Since that time it has 
had a career of uninterrupted usefulness, although it publishes no account of its proceedings. The 
Ottawa Field Naturalists' Club was founded in 1880. It at first interested itself in purely local nat- 
ural history, but has latterly achieved a wider scope, welcoming all scientific papers relating to 
Canada and publishing a monthly journal. The Hamilton Association for the Promotion of Litera- 
ture and Science (dating from 1857) and the Murchison Society of Belleville are two other active 
scientific organizations in the province of Ontario, the first-named issuing a very creditable journal, 
in connection with which it may be noted that McElwraith's book on the Birds of Ontario found a 
means of publication. In the province of Quebec, wo have in addition to the two societies already 
named, the Geographical Society of Quebec (incorporated in 1874) and the Montreal Microscopical 

In Nova Scotia, we find the Nova Scotian Institute of Natural Science, organized in 1862, as a 
result of the effort made to represent the province fitly at the London International Exhibition of 
that year. It has since published a number of volumes of its transactions, well and widely known. In 
New Brunswick the Natural History Society of New Brunswick, established in 1862, has since 1882 

r published bulletins, which excel in respect to the proportion of original work represented by them. 
The Historical and Scientific Society of Manitoba organized in 1879, has since produced good 
work, and has published much of interest in the form of bulletins; while in British Columbia, we 


find tho Nntural History Society of that province (founded in 1890) with which several able natural- 
ist* ure associated, working in conjunction with tho provincial museum, and publishing results of 
exceptional value on tho fauna of that comparatively now field. 

In concluding this lint, which may possibly not bo an absolutely complete one, mention must be 
made of tlie Kotanical Club of Canada, an organization which grew out of a recommendation made 
lV Sot-lion IV. of the Royal Society of Canada and which by tho compilation and publication of local 
lint* of plant*, ba-l upon the collections of its member*, is contributing toward a complete knowledge 
i>f the gcojriaphical distribution of our flora. 

I regret (hat it is not possible on this occasion to mention, oven by enumeration, the many indivi- 
dual workers in geology, /.oology and botany, who as amateurs and without any public support, have 
devoted thorn-elves to the study of various branches of natural science in Canada. The names of these 
pri\ate investigators would form a long and very honourable list. They may be found of constant 
oecuiTcncc in the transactions of the h-arncd societies just referred to, as well as in those of the 
i;.>\al --oeietv <if C.-mada and no inconsiderable part of our actual knowledge has resulted from their 

'I'hf IJoval Niciotv of Canada at the time of its organization in 1882, at the instance of the 
Mnnjuess of Jjorne. had m-t before it a niiinlier of objects. It was inlcndcd to constitute a bond of 
roniiociion between tho heretofnrc scattered workers in literature and science in Canada and a mode 
of a elation between i he variou^ societies alreadv existing for the furtherance of those objects. It 
wa- inioiided al-o i" atlord a -uitahle means f publication for scientific, literary, or historical work, 
not lion -ai'ilv oiiiciinod to that accomplished by its members. It was to promote original research 
in i!.c-c lieM-. and it w;i- undei'sto'xl tliiit its advice and assistance would bo at all times at the dis- 
|i -a! ot tin- x'ovci nuieiit for the solution of problems which might from time to time arise. 

'I'll'- Society has MOW been in existence twelve years, and has been consistently aided in its work 
hv the i_'ovei iiim -nt, bv means of ai: annual grant toward publication and in other ways. It may 
therefore be well to inquire in how far the field of activity originally mapped out for it has now been 
covered. It has, I believe, been suecos-fiil in forming a rallying point for scientific and literary 
wi-iki-r- throughout the country, and ii, bringing about a spirit of fraternity and of mutual interest 
an i co-operation, nut only amon^ individuals but between the various societies and associations, 
who-e representatives form an important element in our annual meetings In respect to publication, 
the Sieieiy, I conceive, ban achieved at least an equal measure of success. The cloven handsome 
volumes o| ' Transactions,' including not only memoirs ai.d special treatises by tho members of the 
Society, but contributions from other workers who have been glad to avail themselves of this medium, 
contain great mass of valuable matter, much of which could not otherwise have been published satis- 
factorily in Canada, and some of which would undoubtedly, under other circumstances, have found 
publicity through scattered M-ienlilic journals abroad. The publications of tho Society have now in 
fact It-come an indispensable part of every scientific library, and care has been taken that they shall 
be no distributed as to be generally available. It may, I think, bo claimed that they are a credit to 
the country. 

The encouragement of original research has also already followed to some extent from the organ- 
ization of the Royal Society, but chiefly in an indirect way and largely by means of tho facilities 
afforded by its publications. Wo have as yet no funds (as the Royal Society of England has, both in 
the form of government grant and in that of piivato benefactions) directly at tho disposal of the 
Society for pursues of original research. Those, it is to bo hoped, will come in time. A valuable 
and exhaustive report was, it will be remembered, made by a committee of the Society in 1885, which 
dealt chiefly with the benefit likely to accrue from the establishment of fellowships or foundations in 
connection with universities, by the aid of which students might be enabled to engage in original 
invent i gat ion* 

He-pecting that aspect of tho functions of the Society in which it is contemplated as an auxiliary 
to the scientific effort* of the government, much remains to be developed. The Society has from 


time to time, by means of deputations or memorials, drawn the attention of the government to 
matters which appeared to it to possess especial importance. Those have generally been of a char- 
actor such as to require some expenditure on the part of the government, but they have in all cases 
been favourably received, and in some inHtances have already been acted upon. This has been the 
case in respect to the tidal surveys, and the determination of the longitude of Montreal, both already 
referred to. At least one matter of importance which has constantly been before the Society since 
its organization has, however, not yet achieved any practical recognition, this is the establishment 
of a National Museum to which I have already alluded. Hut the relations of the Royal Society to the 
State wore not intended to consist merely in petitioning the government in favour of certain lines of 
action. In a thoughtful essay on the subject read before the Society in lH8:t, the late Dr. Todd 
explained in some detail the connection existing between the Imperial Government and the Royal 
Society of England upon the general lines of which the Roj-al Society of (Jana 'a is frann-d - 
pointing out in what way this had grown up, in consequence of the marvellous flexibility of that 
complex organism, the British Constitution. 

As this appears to me to be a matter of importance and one which should engage our attention, 
I need make no apology for quoting Dr. Todd's words. Ho writes : " It is well known to students of 
political history that one result of the establishment of popular government has been to oblige the 
ministers of the crown to take the initiative in preparing and submitting for the sanction of 
parliament whatever measures may be required by the public interest, whether it be to improve our 
administrative or social system ; to amend the operation of existing laws, to aid the progress of an 
advancing civilization, or to encourage tho application of scientific truths to practical beneficial ends. 
Ministers are expected, not oidy to forward sound legislation in these directions, but to re>i-t and 
expose every crude, imperfect, or otherwise objectionable notion of this description which may be 
propounded by private members. It is impossible that any ministers, however able and enlightened, 
can be invariably competent to deal intelligently with questions which form no part of an ordinary 
political education. Neither can they always command in the ranks of the civil service, capable 
assistance upon such topics. Realizing this deficiency, the Imperial Government have gladly availed 
themselves of the co-operation of the Royal Society of London, to assist in the disposal of mallei's 
requiring a special knowledge of art or science, in regard to which executive or parliamentary 
interposition may be necessary. In such cases it has been of inestimable public advantage that the 
executive government could have recourse to the advice and assistance of a body occupying the 
impartial position of the Royal Society, and could freely avail themselves of their services, not 
merely as individuals, but with tho acknowledged weight and responsibility attaching to them in their 
corporate capacity." 

I trust that in the review which I have attempted of tho various institutions engaged in scientific 
work and investigation in Canada, I have succeeded in conveying tho impression that while something 
has already been accomplished, much more remains to bo done, while the continued expansion of the 
interests of the country is every year opening up new fields of investigation and new problems which 
must bo undertaken and solved. In each such case 1 have endeavoured to connect tho new work which 
appears to lie before us with that one of the present organizations to which it appears to be naturally 
affiliated, but one important line of inquiry must yet be mentioned in which no systematic beginning 
has been made, either under the auspices of the government or by any society or institutions 
especially devoted to it. This is the field of ethnology, which in Canada is a very extensive one, and 
which calls for immediate effort, inasmuch as the native races with which this study is concerned, are 
either rapidly passing away or are changing from their primitive condition. The late Sir Daniel 
Wilson, by whose death tho Society has suffered so great a loss, more than once brought this subject 
to our notice in eloquent terms. 

Proc. 1894. j. 


The Council of the British Association for the Advancement of Science, when that association 
met in Montreal ten years ago, was so much impressed with the urgency of investigations of this 
kind that it not only appointed a committee to deal with the subject, but has since given each 3 - ear 
a substantial grant from its own funds in aid of this work. The Canadian Government for several 
years supplemented this grant, and eight reports tilled with valuable observations on the Western 
triU'- hare HO far, as a result of this action, been published in the annual reports of the association. 
It has been decided, however, that the functions of the committee, with the grant accorded by the 
association, shall cease this your, so that if further progress is to be made, the mutter must now be 
taken up by the Canadian Government. It is earnestly to be desired that the governmont'may at 
least contemplate the attachment either to the Indian Department or to some other department of 
a properly <|iialilied ethnologist, by whom these investigations may be continued. 

The Royal Society of Canada has fortunately been able to afford the means of publication for some 
valuable ethnological and philological material, to which it may be observed several missionaries have 
contributed largely. The government has also on several occasions by moans of small special grants, 
aided in the production of dictionaries of the Indian languages. But this is not enough ; the investi- 
gation of the native race-- themselves should lie systematically prosecuted till all that can bo gathered 
in relation to tliem shall have been ascertained. Specimens, too, illustrating the arts, the manufac- 
tures and the anthropology of the native races should be collected and carefully preserved. Upon 
the Pacific Coast, where the alioriginal arts are most remarkably developed, many collectors have 
already descended, hearing away to Germany and toother foreign countries much that should have 
the grcato-t intere-i to Canada To fully appreciate the importance of this task it is necessary to 
endeavour to realize in u hat way the next generation may regard any omission on our part in 
fulfilling thi- duty. 

Canada is perhaps too young to a fiord public support to purely abstract researches in such 

subjects as diemi-try, physics or biology, however valuable their possible results may be to the 

u'eiicral knowledge of the world. Neither can we expect at present to organize and send abroad 

c mi ions of exploration or expeditions to enrich our museums with the records of ancient 

li/utions drawn from the mounds of Syria or the sepulchres of Hgypt. For such enterprises, if 

they are to he undertaken, we must trust entirely to the munificence of private individuals ; but for 

eld of scientitic investigation which relates to our own vast territory, I fool strongly that we 

should accept the responsibility, and in expressing this feeling trust that I have the sympathy not 

only of the members of this Society, but also of the general public. 

On the conclusion of the address u vote of thanks was given to the learned president on the 
motion of the Governor-General. 
The meeting then adjourned. 

SKSSION III. (May 23rd.) 

The Society, in accordance with order, met in the Assembly Hall of the Normal School at 10 a.m., 
and the President called the meeting to order. 

The consideration of the report of the Council was further deferred until a later meeting on

In pursuance of notice duly given by the Royal Society, Mr. F. G. Marchand, M.L.A., of Quebec, 
doctcur es let Ires, delivered a lecture in the Assembly Hall before a large audience on " Un Tour do 
France durant la Seconde Re"publi<[uo." The vice-president presided. 


No business or sectional meetings were held to-day, and a number of Fellows and delegates paid 
a visit to the Experimental Farm at Ottawa, to which they had been invited by the director, Mr. W. 
Saunders . 

In the afternoon the Royal Society, delegates, and American visitors had the honour of attending 
at Government House a luncheon and a garden party, to which they received a gracious invitation 
from their Excellencies the Governor-General and the Countess of Aberdeen. 

His Excellency the Governor-General sent as Honorary President the congratulations of the 
Society to Her Majesty the Queen . 


FIRST SESSION. (May 26th.) 

In accordance with order, the Royal Society mot at 2.30 p.m., on Friday, in the Assembly Hall 
of the Normal School building, the President in the chair. 

The Honorary Secretary read the following letter from His Excellency the Governor-General :

The report of the Council was then considered and the following resolutions approving of certain 
recommendations therein were unanimously adopted : 

(1.) Resolve J, That this meeting approve of the publication of the bibliography of the Royal 
Society, commenced by the Honorary Secretary, and hope that all members will assist him by all the 
means in their |>..\ver. (On motion of Dr. Stewart, seconded by Dr. Patterson.)

1 arrangement* for printing and publication of papers as are essential to their usefulness and wide 
distribution. (On motion of Mr. J. F. Whiteaves, seconded by Dr. R. W. Ells.) 


Mr. Matthew read the following telegram, dated 22nd May, from St. John, N.B. : 
" To Geo F. Matthew, Royal Society Meeting, Ottcuca. 

On behalf of citizens I have much pleasure in inviting Royal Society to meet in St. John next 


" Mayor." 
After dome debate, the following resolution was adopted : 


Resolved, That (ho Royal Society of Canada here assembled return their thanks to the Mayor of 
St. John for the invitation, and recommend the same to the favourable consideration of the Council. 
(On motion of Rev. Dr. Patterson, seconded by Mr. McFarlano.) 


The committee appointed in May, 1893, on the organization of a Hydrographic Survey for the 
Dominion made the following report : 

" Your committee beg to report that they had an interview with the Hon. Sir < 'has. Ilibbcrt Tapper, 
Minister of Marine, to-day, at which they were most courteously received. The President and Vice- 
President of the Society, Sir William Dawson, ox-President, and other Follows of the Society, formed 
part of the deputation. On behalf of the Society a representation was made in which the need for 
placing the hydrographic work of the department on a permanent basis, with u suitable organization, 
was strongly urged. The committee are happy to state that the minister, in his reply, not only 
expressed his entire accord with the views of this Society, but informed them that action had already 
b.en taken by the department in this direction, and that in future there would be a permanent 
hydrographic staff in connection with the department.

9. The Tablet of the Cross at Palenque and other Hieroglyphic Inscriptions of Central America 

deciphered. By Rev. John Campbell, LL.D. 

This essay is an original decipherment of four monumental inscriptions in the hieroglyphics of 
the Huastec-Mayaguiche peoples of Yucatan, Guatemala, and the neighbouring countries. The well 
known tablet of the Cross was found in a palace among the elaborate ruins of the city of Palcnquc on 
the borders of Yucatan, anil the Mexican province of Chiapas. Inthc.-c memoirs, the author fully 
states his process of decipherment, not only of the long Palenque inscription, but also of those of the 
Copan altar tablet and the tablets of Chichanchob and Akatzeeb in Yucatan, lie provides ample 
material for the interpretation of other Central American documents, whether in the shape of monu- 
ments or of codices.

11. Documents Illustrative of the French Occupation of lie St. .lean, now Prince Kdward I>land, 

Edited with Notes by Dr. Bourinot, C.M.G. 

During the past year the editor has had collected and copied in the Paris Archives for the Royal 
Society a large number of valuable documents relating to the earl} 1 history of Prince Kdward Island 
when it was in the possession of the French. One of the most valuable and interesting documents is 
the Report of Siour Franquet, the French Government Engineer, on the voyage of inspection lie 
made in 1751 to the ports and settlements of St. Jean, to Forts Beausejour and Gaspareaux in Acadia, 
and to Port Toulouse in Isle Royalo. This report is accompanied by valuable sketches and plans of 
projected forts in the Island of St. Jean, as well as of maps of the harbours and settlements. M. 
Franquet's report is very full in details, showing thoroughly the condition of the island at the time 
of his visit, just seven years before it fell into the possession of the French after the fall of Louisbourg. 
In addition to this report, extracts are given from other documents showing the trade and population 
of the island at other times, from 1732 to 1758. The editor purposes to give these documents, both 
in the original and in a translation, and to add such notes as will make them more intelligible to the 
modern reader. He also gives an introduction on the discovery and settlement of the island, when it 
became an appendage of lie Royale. The most interesting maps and plans will illustrate the text. 
These documents and illustrations will appear for the first time in print in this complete shape.

The paper* were referred to the publication committee. 

The oflicei-H elected for the coming year are as follows : 

President Dr. B. J. Harrington. 
Vice- President Prof. H. T. Bovey. 
Secretary E. Deville. 

The following resolutions were passed, and are now submitted to the Society : 
On motion of Prof. Bovey, seconded by M^r. Hamel : 

Th this section recommends that authors proposing to read papers be requested to prepare ad- 
typc w.itic,, copies for diHtribntion among such members of the several sections as may be 
interested in the special subjects of which the papers treat. 


On motion of Dr. Sandford Fleming, seconded by Mr. Hoffmann : 

That Section III. unanimously recommends that Rule 6 be suspended, and that the Rev. James 
Williamson be elected a member of the Royal Society. 

The section consists of twenty members, of whom twelve were present. 



Report of Section IV. 

Section IV. respectfully reports that seven meetings have been held during the present 
session of the Royal Society, and that the amount and value of work accomplished has ex- 
ceeded that of any previous year. Thirty papers in all were presented. Of these twenty were by 
members and ten by non-members; three only were read by title, the others being presented in full 
or in abstract. The attendance has been fairly largo and very enthusiastic, and wo may safely report 
this as the most successful series of meetings in the history of the section. 

It has given the members special gratification to note the presence of His Excellency Lord 
Aberdeen, and the constant presence of Dr. S. II. Scuddor, of Cambridge, Mass., Prof. O. ('. Marsh, of 
New Haven, Conn., and Prof. B. E. Fornow, of Washington, all of whose observations upon the 
papers read have contributed in largo measure to the interest and success of the meetings. In this 
connection, the section feels that the policy of inviting distinguished scientists from abroad so suc- 
cessfully instituted this year should receive a larger measure of consideration in the future. 

Three new members have been added to our list this year: G. U. H:ty, I'h.B., of St. John, N. 15., 
Mr. W. Hague Harrington, of Ottawa, and l!ev. G-. W. Taylor, of Victoria, British < 'olumbia. 

Respecting questions referred to the section by Council, wo beg to report as follows : 

1. Concerning the promotion of systematic reviews of scientific and literary publications there is 
no representation. 

2. With respect to the formation of a catalogue of scientific papers, the information now in our 
hands is insufficient for the formulation of a definite recommendation. 

3. That upon an examination of the attendance and work of the various members, only one has 
been found to deserve admonition, and it is asked that the secretary of the section communicate the 
rule of the Society to him, and advise him that its observance in the future is desired. 

It is also recommended that because of eminence in their respective fields of work, and tlieir con- 
tributions to Canadian science, Sir James Hector, of New Zealand, and Dr. Samuel II. Seudder, of 
Cambridge, Mass., be elected corresponding members of this Society. 

The section would also report that, having carefully examined the phonological data so far col- 
lected, they observe great want of uniformity and some inaccuracy in the results submitted. They 
therefore feel that the continuation of those observations should be referred to local societies who 
should bo urged to place this important work in the hands of competent observers. Reports may 
thus be embodied in the annual reports of these societies to the Royal Society, and interim re- 
ports may also be made to and consultations held with the secretary of the Botanical Club of Canada. 
The election of officers for the following year resulted as follows: 
President Mr. James Fletcher. 
Vice-President Dr. Wesley Mills. 
Secretary Prof. D. P. Penhallow. 

The whole respectfully submitted. 



The Honorary Secretary communicated the following notices of motions with respect to the 

mode of electing Fellows of the Society : 

Proc. 1894. K. 


" That at the next meeting of the Royal Society, the undersigned will move: 
"That in any contest for the election of Fellows should no candidate receive the requisite number 
of votes, the Council shall elect such members as it may deem most suitable, at any mooting of the 
Council held before the date fixed for the annual meeting, provided a quorum of members of Council 

l>e present." 


HALIFAX, May 19th, 1894. 
Thf lion. Sfcrettiry of /Ac Roijtil Society of Canada. 

lr. \R SIK, Heing unable to bo present lit the approaching meeting of the R. S. C., I take the 
liberty nf addressing 1" you a few remarks to servo as a contribution to the discussion of the amond- 
iiifiit nf Rule ; mi (ho mode of eltvtion of mombers. 1 assume you are familiar with the modes of 
election propo-rd liv l>r. Fleming and myself respectively and referred to in the Proceedings of the 
hint two years. Thev -o far as I know are the only methods under discussion. I wish to institute a 
<-"Mi|ian-'in nt' their ro-poctivo merits or defects. 

l>r. Fleming's method may fail to effect an election even when the voting papers contain sufficient 

information l"i- the purp >-e. Tim- let there lie live candidates A, 15, C, D, E, and lot us suppose 

i-li -\i-n \oi.-r- attai-h the niiinl'ors f>, 1, '.',, '_'. 1 to their names respectively ; three voters the numbers 

1. :; i. .V .' . other three voter- the numbers 1, '2, 4, 5, ,'J ; one voter, the numbers I, 2, 3, 5, 4; one 

the unrulier-. I, .'!, -, I. ">. an I one voter, the numbers 2, 1, 3, 4, 5. Their totals are thus 65, 65, 

il.'i. ti.'i. In n-pectivoly. If therefore then- lie only one or two or three vacancies, I>r. Fleming's 

I fail- to deet, although obviously a majority of the voters wish A to till the first vacancy, B 

to till the -fe.ind and C the third. 

If, a- would appear from l>r. Fleming's statement of his method in the Proceedings, he proposes 
to require :i candidate, in order to election, to obtain a total equal tu two-thirds of the highest possible 
total, hi- in ft Imd will frequently fail to elect. In the above example no candidate has so largo a total ; 
and thu- in thi- ea-e even if there were tour vacancies bis method would fail to elect. But this 
restriction i- not e.- ential to his sy-tem and may therefore bo led out of account. 

My method alr-o may tail to elect , but only in the case in which the voters are equally divided 
bftwri-n candidates (in which ca-e an election can be effected only by some species of fictitious com- 
promi.-e under an}- good system), and in the case in which the voting papers do not supply sufficient 
information Ui show that at least one candidate is preferred to all others (in which case also com- 
promise is the only resort, as c. /. in the ordinary method of balloting at public meetings). So far 
a.- I can see no method of voting by letter can meet these case-i. In my "propos-ed amendment of rule 
6 (Proceedings of IH'.i^, p. V.) the first case was provided for; the second case, which would probably 
be of very rare occurrence, might IK> provided for by referring the election in any such case to the 
next meeting of the section, to bo conducted by the ordinary method of ballot. 

That Dr. Fleming's method may effect an election in both these cases is so obvious that I need 
not give an example. At first sight this might seem lobe an advantage; but the election of a 
candidate whom the majority of the voters do not wish to elect, cannot be advantageous. 

The possibility of electing the wrong man, ie., of electing one candidate when the majority of 
th voters wish another to be elected, is the most serious defect of Dr. F.'e method. That this is 
powible was shown by me in the Proceedings of '!)2, p. VI., in the case of a single vacancy, and was 
tacitly admitted by the committee appointed to report on these methods (Proc. of '93, p. XLV.) ; for 
they reported that in the case given, Dr. F.'s method elected "the best all-round candidate," not the 
candidate whom the majority of the voters wished to elect. 

That even when there are two vacancies the wrong candidates may be elected is obvious from 
the following example :--Let there be five candidates, A, B. C, D and K. Let eleven voters attach to 
their name- the numbers 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, respectively, arid nine voters the numbers 1, 2, 4, 5, 3. The 


totals are 64, 62, 69, 67 and 38, respectively. Thus Dr. Fleming's method would elect C and D 
whereas obviously the majority of the voters prefer A and B to all the other candidates. 

With twenty electors voting, a similar complete miscarriage may occur if there are three 
vacancies, provided there be six candidates. I need not give an example, for the assertion is easily 

The committee, in asserting that the candidates elected by Dr. F.'s method in such cases are the 
best all-round candidates, give no adequate grounds for their assertion. They obviously regard the 
numbers by which a voter indicates the order of his preference of the candidates as somehow giving a 
measure of his opinion of their merit. That they do not give any such measure, however, even of the 
roughest kind, is clear from the fact that though one voter may regard the candidates as all very good, 
and another as all very poor, he yet uses the same numbers in indicating his order of preference. In 
the former case No. 1 means: very good, but not so good as the others ; in the latter ease it means : very 
poor and poorer than the others, but still fit to be a Fellow, llcnce, to conclude from the fact that 
though a candidate gets few high numbers awarded him ho also gets few low ones, that if his total is 
greatest he is the best all-round candidate, seems to me to be a complete non *e<juitt<r. 

The possibility, according to Dr. F.'s method, that a candidate who is considered best by a major- 
ity of voters may lose his election if a sufficient minority place him low down on their lists, gives a 
minority a veiy dangerous power. It seems improbable that with four or live candidates in the tield 
one so eminent as to be considered best by a majority should, on grounds of fitness for a fellowship 
alone, be ranked sufficiently low by a sufficiently largo minority to lose his election. Hut it may readily 
happen that he is placed sufficiently low to give this result on other grounds, say because the minor- 
ity arc not familiar with his work and have not taken the trouble to make proper inquiry, or because 
he is connected with an institution, or is resident in a province already in their opinion sufficiently 
represented in the Society. Thus Dr. F.'s method enables a minority of voters to reject, on what I 
may call unworthy grounds, a candidate whom the majority wish to elect. This seems to me a very 
dangerous power to confer upon a minority. It may be right enough within certain limits to elect a 
candidate of less eminence in order to secure a more equable representation of institutions, provinces, 
etc., but this should bo done by the will of the majority of voters, not of a minority. 

Dr. F.'s method makes no provision for the case in which a voter may regard two or more 
candidates as equal in their claims, a case which may frequently arise. If a voter considers A best, B 
and C equal and second best and D the least desirable of four candidates, is he to attach to their names 
the numbers 4, 3, 3, 2, or 4, 2, 2, 1, or 4, 3, 3, 1, or 3, 2, 2, 1, or is he to toss up as between B and C 
for the numbers 3 and 2 ? The result of an election on Dr. F.'s method may obviously turn upon the 
mode of notation in such cases. 

The committee report that Dr. F.'s method is much the simpler of the two. It should be noted, 
however, that it is the simpler ordy so far as the work of the scrutineers is concerned. Both methods 
use the same voting paper, except for the defect in Dr. F.'s method mentioned in the last paragraph. 
The simplicity which is desirable in an election is simplicity in the voting paper. Scrutineers can 
easily be found to do the work of collating the voting papers; but it is often difficult to get even 
intelligent electors to fill up properly a complicated voting paper. As, except for the difficulty 
mentioned in the last paragraph, the voting papers are the same according to the two methods, Dr. 
F.'s has no advantage in this respect. With my method the work of the scrutineers is less simple 
than with Dr. F.'s, but the number of voters being small, the difference is hardly appreciable. After 
many trials, I find that to determine who are elected in any election such as wo hold, my method 
requires say fifteen minutes more than Dr. F.'s, while the process is within the capability of any 
school boy. The difference of simplicity is therefore negligible. 

I dare say it was the form of my proposed amendment of rule 6 that made my method appear so 
complex to the committee. But if Dr. F. will prepare an amendment embodying his mothod and 
providing for all cases that may arise, I think it will be found to assume an equally complex and 
repellent form. 


To test the two method*, I have this evening conducted 19 elections, the number of candidates 
ranging from 3 to 6 and the number of vacancies from 1 to 4 and the voting papers being made out 
in a perfectly haphazard manner. The result was as follows: In one case Dr. F.'s method brought 
out two candidates as equal when my method showed that one of them ought to have been elected. 
In two cases Dr. F.'s method elected a candidate between whom and another candidate my method 
showed that the voters were equally divided. In one case Dr. F.'s method elected a candidate to 
whom mv method showed another candidate to bo preferred by the voters. In all other cases both 
methods gave the same result. Thus 21 per cent of the elections resulted in miscarriages with 
In;* method, and a little over 5 per cent in miscarriage of a serious kind. If a larger number of testa 
were applied percentages would probably be different, though whether larger or smaller it is im- 
pov%iMe to KIV. They seem to me, however, to show that before adopting the recommendation of the 
committee the Society should refer the mutter back to them with instructions to apply a large num- 
ber of tests and determine how frequently miscarriages are likely to occur. 

It would bo better still, it seems to me, to avoid the possibility of miscarriages altogether by 
adopting the method which I proposed. When it effected an election, the candidate or candidates 
elected would bo those whom the voters wished to elect, and when it failed to effect an election the 
failure would l>e due to the equal division or the very conflicting opinions of the voters. I know, sir, 
that you would not object to the additional fifteen minutes of time which it would require of yon as a 

Should tlio matter come up for discussion in the Society, I should be obliged by your reading 
this communication. Should it be referred to a committee this letter might bo laid before the com- 

Yours very truly, 



The Royal Society then proceeded to the election of officers of the Society, for the year ending 
May, 1W5, and the following gentlemen were unanimously chosen : 

President J. M. LeMoine, Esquire. 
Vice- President Dr. Selwyn, C.M.G., F.R.S.

Honorary Treasurer. James Fletcher, Esq., F.L.S. 


The following resolutions were unanimously adopted : 

1 1.) Resolred, That Rule 6 be suspended and that the Reverend Dr. Jamea Williamson, of Queen's 
University, Kingston, Ontario, be elected a Fellow of Section III. of the Royal Society. (On motion of 
Dr. Sandford Fleming, seconded by Mr. Hoffmann.) 

(2.) Retolved, That Dr. S. H. Scndder of Cambridge, Mass., be nominated as a corresponding 
member of the Royal Society of Canada. (On motion of Prof. Penhallow, seconded by Dr. Selwyn.)

ocean steamship ; 

That as a result of these effort* it is intended at an early day to place by order of Parliament a 
memorial brass within the precincts of the Parliament buildings, and it is felt that on the occasion 



of the brass being so placed, it would be well to have the Royal Society and associated societies 
represented ; 

That the president, officers and resident members, or as many of them as can conveniently be 
present, bo requested on the call of the Honorary Secretary, to represent this society and associated 
societies. (On motion of Dr. Sandford Fleming, seconded by Dr. Bourinot.) 

(5.) Resolved, That this Society desires to express its appreciation of the hospitality extended to 
it by their Excellencies the Governor-General and the Countess of Aberdeen and by the citizens 
of Ottawa. (On motion of Prof. Penhallow, seconded by Dr. Stewart.) 

(6.) Resolved, That the Royal Society of Canada express the pleasure and profit they have 
derived from the presence at this meeting of our distinguished visitors from the United States, and 
of so many delegates from associated societies in this Dominion. (On motion of Dr. G. P. (Sirdwood, 
seconded by Dr. Kingsford.) 

(7.) Resolved, That the thanks of this meeting bo given to Dr. J. A. MacCabe, for the use of 
the Assembly Hall and for other courtesies extended to the Royal Society. (On motion of B. Suite,

in the Department of Agriculture at Washington, D. C., would deliver a public lecture on Friday 
evening at 8 p. m., on " The Battle of the Forest," with very full illustrations. 

The thirteenth general meeting of the Royal Society then adjourned sine die.

Any imperfections in this bibliography must lie largely ascribed to the ditliniltv tin- 
editor has experienced, in some cases, in obtaining information from iiicmlicrs ot'thc Soci.-iv, 
and to his own inability to supply the missing facts in tin- parliamentary library and other 
institutions to which he has applied. On the whoh-. liowevcr. tin- hihlio^raphv, which is 
modelled on that of the American Historical Assneiittiuii, now a branch of the Smithsonian 
Institution at Washington, will be found as accurate as it is possible to make it. in view of 
the very range it takes for nearly half a century. It will be, probably, of min-h advantage 
to scientific and literary students when they wish to obtain all the literature on certain >ul>- 
jects in which many members of the Royal Society have been earnest workers fur years. 
It is proposed to publish each year a similar bibliography of the work of the members of 
the Royal Society, and to include the publications of deceased members, which have not 
been available for the present volume.

The report for 1883 contains Hynopses of papers in the 
Public Record Office, London, relating to Canada, and 
the MIIIIO lij Mr. Marraette of papers in the State De- 
partments, Paris ; letters on the state of Canada in 
1835, by T. Fred. Elliot, secretary of the (losford com- 
mission, and by Hon. A. N. Horin in 1811, in antici- 
pation of the flnt meeting of the Legislature of United 
Canada : also, " Transactions relating to Hudson's 
Buy in 1687." 

Fur 1884, the prrliininarv report contains a sketch of 
the capture of Quebec by Kirk in 1629, and its restor- 
ation by Charles I. to France in 1631. A very interest- 
ing letter written in 1631 by Charles to Wake, the 
ambassador to France, unearthed by Dr. Brymner in 
the British Museum, was published in Iliis report, 
clearing up an obscure historical point. A manuicript 
account, written in 1678, of (he martyrdom of Fathers 
Hivl'ii-ui' and L'Allcmant is printed in this report, 
with a translation inlo English. In the description of 
Nova Scotia hy Lieut. -Col. Morse, in his report dated 
in 17S4, is the first proposal fur confederation of the 
Provinces, the place suggested by Col. Morse for the 
metro|>otis being Cape Breton An abstract of the 
" Fealty Kolln " of L'iwer Canada has proved of great 
vnluc to inquirers respecting the first grants and suc- 
cessions to the seigniories in that Province* The 
calendar of the llaldiniand collection was begun in 
this volume. 

In l^sfi, tin tj/nofww o/ papers in the department! at 
I'.in . the abstract of the Icalty rolls and the calendar 
of the llaldiniand collection were continued. In the 
l>r.-l iiniiiHrv rej.nrt a sketch is given of the events, so 
far as they atlrcted Canada, of the American Revolu- 
tionary War, and a hiatus supplied in the letter writ- 
ten l>y Lord Ucorge Uennain to Sir Guy Carloton* 
which, it ,-i.|.in- probable, led to the resignation of the 
latter. The correspondence is given in full in a note 
Uimrked U) to the report. A careful outline of the 
life of an ex-Jesuit named Rimbaud : s of interest to 
the investigators of Canadian history. 

In ISSi) tht rrprt i>n ^rt licit Art-h iff a ami th<' calendar 
of t fir Iliiltti Hinntl ciill'ftiim are continued. The pre- 
liinini.ry report gives an account of the capture of 
Ijiiist><>tirg in 174'), with chart of Uabarus Bay and 
plan of Louisboiiric, showing the position of the fort, 
etc. ; note A giving the proposal of Samuel Waldo 
for its redaction in l"-"8. The journal of Legardeur 
St. Pierre in H.W to 1752, with Sir (!uy Carleton's re- 
marks on Western trade (notes C and D), and the 
letter-bonk of Mil".- Macdonell, reporting his pro- 
ctcd ngs with the emigrants taken at the expense of 
I.'.r.l Selkirk to settle Rupert's Land, give a view of 
different parts of the Canadian North-West at differ- 
ei.t periods. The history of the construction of the 
first canals on the St. Lawrence in 1780 and 1781, and 
ill. discovery that a canal was in existence on the 
Canadian side of the Saiilt Ste. Marie from 17-7 and 
a few year?* onwards, are of interest to engineers. 
The visit of Capt. Knys to Niagara in 1787, the journal 
of which is published in full, has been regarded bj 
geologists as of considerable importance. 

In 1887, thr Ilrp'irtnn trench Archivet anil the cal- 
rnilnrofthe fliililiuianil paper* were continued. In 
the preliminary report is the sketch of the life of 
Cieneral Haldimand, who became Hover nor of Canada 
in succesiou to Sir liuy Carlctonand who continued in 
command till the close of the Revolutionary war. A 
letter fiom M. Tremblay, agent for the Seminary of 
Quebec, dated in 1896, published in full with a transla- 
tion, affords reason for a sketch of the ecclesiastical 
affairs of that Province during the incumbency of the 
first Bishops, Her. de Laval and Mgr. St. Valliere. 
The account of the capture of Fort Shelby, at Prairie

du Cbien, by Lieut. -Col. McKay, in 1814, taken from 
the original documents among the Archives gives de- 
tails of a little known episode in the war of IS] 1 .'. 
Fort McKay, so called after the capture, was restored 
to the United States at the close of the war. Some 
idea may be formed of the hardships experienced by 
the early explorers for a route to be used by the 
Canadian Pacific Railway, by the journal kept by Mr. 
llanington of his survey in the Rocky Mountains 
during the winter of 1874-5. 

In W8, tlir calendar of ike I/alilimand cnllreli'in 
was continued. The papers published in full as notes 
to the preliminary report have the titles : The Walker 
Outrage, 1764; General Murray's Recall ; the French 
Noblesse in Canada after 17C:I ; Pierre du Calvet ; the 
Northwest Trade and French Royalists in t'pper 
Canada. In tho preliminary report are sketches of 
the character. etc.,ol Walker, the subject of the out- 
rage, and of Pierre du Calvet, who^c statements are 
rigorously weighed in the light of the correspondence. 
The almost forgotten attempt of French Royalists 
under the Count de Puisaye to settle in Upper Canada 
alter the Revolutionary party in France had been fully 
established is clearly shown by the correspondence on 
the subject, which is published in this report in full, 
and by the sketches in the preliminary report. 

In 1SS9, III, calmdar </(/!. Ilal,limau<l (.;// clinn is 
complete;! and the diary of llaldimand, containing 
many curious entries among many that are very 
trivial, is printed in full with careful translation the 
names mentioned being so far as possible identified. 
The Bowiui-t C'll/i-cti'iu is also calendared, being liestun 
and completed in this report. Iiou<iuet, it may lie 
mentioned, was a brother toldier with Ilaldiuiand, 
both being foreign officers of the Royal American, 
afterwards the nOth regiment. In the preliminary re- 
port is a reprint of a paper on Archives, read before 
the American Historical Association, which tjivcs a 
history of the origin and progress of the department. 
A sketch of the schools and schoolmasters in Canada 
is in the body of the preliminary report ; remarks 
on early explorers in tho Northwest : additional re- 
marks on the forgotten canal at Sanlt Ste, Marie, with 
lithographed views of the remains. The general 
topics dealt with arc Northwestern explorations, the 
journal of La Verandryc of 1738-li'J and other twelve 
documents on the subject being printed in full ; re- 
ligious, educational and other statistics ; Vermont 
negotiations; liefore and after tho battle of Edge 
Hill (usually called the battle of Bushy Run), includes 
the original correspondence published in full ; the 
Reservation of Indian Lands (after the capture of 
Canada in 1700 and the treaty of Paris in 170-'l) ; cor- 
respondence respecting tho construction of a canal 
from Lake Champlain to the St. Lawrence in 1785 to 

In 1890, the calendar of the Stale Papers fur tin- 
Province of Qurluc was begun, the preliminary report 
giving a summary of the history included in tho 
papers, such as the advances made by Amherst, the 
first Governor, to give the inhabitants after the sur- 
rentler in 1760 an opportunity to retrieve their fortunes- 
the Government and recall of Murray) the first Lieut. 
Governor ; the accession of Carleton ; the passing of 
the Constitutional Act of 1774 ; a reference to the 
Revolutionary war, and a summary of the papers 
published in full, which are under these heads: Ad- 
ministration of Justice (after the close of the military 
rule in Quebec; Correspondence respecting the Con- 
stitutional Act of 1791 ; Northwestern exploration ; 
Internal communication in Canada ; Relations with 
the United States after the peace of 1783 A litho-

<Lu le i iniii IKllli 

Parmi taut d'ecclesiastiqucs ((iii, sous la domination francaise au Canada, suivnt allier 
a un grand zele pour la gloiiv de Dion et les travaiix do lour miiiisti'-re un devourment 
sans homes pour lo bien do la patrie, je n'eii connais pas qui aiont niontiv plus d'attaelieinent 
au service du roi et do la France quo le digue sulpirien doiit le nom est en tote do cette 
notice. L'ahbo Picquet etait , vraimoiit de la race des Feiiolon, des Vignal, des d'Urto, des 
Dollier dc Casson, des IJelmont. Sa devise, durant toiite sa earriere, soluble avoir etc : 
Tout pour Uiou et la patrie ! " 11 aiirait souhaite, disait-il dans line de ses lettres, pouvoir 
etendre 1'ompire de Jesus-Christ et du roi, ses bons mattres, jusqu'aux extromitos du 
monde." "Je serai trop beiireux, oerivaif-il encore, si mos potits travaiix peuvent con- 
tribucr en quelque chose au bien de la religion et du service du roi. Ce sont la toiites nies 
vues et mes desirs, et les sentiments dans lesqucls je veux vivro et niourir." ' 

Tons les gouverneurs qui so sueeederent de son temps au Canada rendirent honima^e a 
son devouement et ;\ son merite. ' Cot eeclesiastique est part'aitement desinteresse, ocrivait 
un jour M. de la Galissoniere au ministre ; et il omploie line jiartie do son revenii pour 
I'ex4cution de son projet (la fondation de la Presentation)." 1 Et M. "Duqucsne : 11 a servi 
la religion et 1'Etat, disait-il, avoc un succos incroyable, pendant pros do trente annees ; et 
il s'est acquis une grande reputation par les beaux etablissements qu'il a formes pour le roi, 
au Canada." 4 MM. de la Jonquiere et Vaudreuil faisaient do la memo maniero 1'ologo de 
cet homme de bien. 

La grande 03iivre, 1'oeuvre par excellence de M. Picquet, cc fut d'assurer ;\ la Franco le 
concours des nations sauvages, dans la lutte de notre aucienne mere patrie contre 1'Anglu- 
terre pour la possession de rAmorique du Nord, le concours, surtout, on du moins la 
neutralite des Iroquois, qui, malhcureusement, s'etaient toujours montres si hostiles au 
Canada. On comprend 1'importance de cette oeuvre pour la France, dans les vingt-cinq 
dernieres annees surtout qui precedercnt le denouement fatal, sur les plaines d' Abraham, de 
ce grand drame ou tant d'interets majeurs etaient en jeu. M. Picquet reussit au deli de 
toute esperance.

II avail un talent incroyable pour attirer les sauvages, pour les mettre sous sa main, 
pour les tloniiner, pour lea civiliser. A part les Agniers, (lout il avait fait son deuil, et qui, 
Diiivant sou expression, " n'etaient plus regardes que coiume des Anglais," il gagna toutes 
les iiatioiin iroquoises a la raiise do la France, sans compter les autres peuples sauvages, 
dout il sut conserver et inaintonir 1'ainitii'. L;i victoire do la Monongahe'la, qui a rendu 
iiniin>rtel le intiu do M. dc Beaujeu, tut due rii grande partie au coueours des sauvages. Au 
siege du (>rt William-Henry, M. de Montcalm avait sous ses ordres pres de mille sauvagcs, 
appartfiiant a qiiarantr ct une trilms ditferentes. 1

dans les e'glises de sa ville natalc. A 20 ans, il obtint de 1'autorite ecclesiastique la permis- 
sion de precher dans toutes les paroisses de la Brcsse et de la Franche-Comte. 1 

II tit sa theologie a Paris, et entra dans la societe de Saint-Sulpice. Hes superieurs, 
connaissant ses dispositions heurenses et precoeespour la vie de missionnaire, lui proposerent 
de 1'envoyer au Canada; il aceepta avec joie. II fut ordonne le 10 avril 1734, ft partit 
presque aussitot pour rAmeriquc. II arriva au Canada le 6 juillet, et t'ut accueilli avec bien- 
veillanee par ses confreres de Saint-Sulpicc a Montreal. II avait 25 ans. 

Montreal, a cette epoque, n'etait pas encore, taut s'en taut, cette immense et magnifiqiic 
ville commerciale quo nous admirons. C'ctait mi long et etroit assemblage de inaisons en 
bois ou en pierre, a un seul ou deux etagcs ; au-dessus de ccs inaisons sYlcvaient les tours ilu 
se'minaire, les clochers de trois eglises, les iniirs de quatre convents, avei: les arbres dc Iciirs 
vastes jardins. On apercevait de loin, a I'extremite cst de la ville, un liant rempart en terre, 
couronne par uno redoute snr laquclle etaient inontes quelques canons. Toiite la ville rtait 
entouree d'un pro fond, et cl'un mur en pierre avec bastions, capable de la protegcr con t re 
les attaques des sauvages, mais nulleincnt de resistor a la niitraille. 

"Cette ville, (lit un ecrivain de I'epoqiic, n'a |iroiireincnt quc deux grandes nics lungues. 
La maison des sulpiciens et celle des jesuitos occupeiit cbacuue un tres grand terrain. II 
y a aussi le convent des reeollets, celni des liospitalieres, et celni des sn'iirs de la C'ongrc- 
gation." 2 

La population de Montreal etait de 4,210 anus, en 17:W, et de S,:',12 en 17liD. ! 

Voici ce que Knox ecrivait dans son journal, sur le coni[itc des habitants de Mnntn'al : 

"Us sont vifs et enjoues, dit-il, et beaucoup pins recbercbes dans leur toilette et Iciirs 
parures, que ceux de Quebec ; il semble exister line certaine emulation a ce snjet cut re les 
habitants des deux villes. A voir le grand nombre de robes de sole, d'habits brodes, de tetes 
poudrees de tout age ct des deux sexes, que Ton rencontre dans la rue, dn matin an soir, un 
etranger serait porte ;\ croire que Montreal n'c'st habite que par des gens de grandes et inde- 
pendantes fortunes." 4 

Quant aux mneurs du Canada, en general, a cette epoque, voici ce qu'eerivait en 1730 
la sceur Duples-sis ; on salt que cette religieuse n'etait nullement portee a 1'exageration ; il 
suffit d'aillenrs de parcourir les documents de 1'epoqne, les documents cpiscopanx, en parti- 
cnlier, pour s'assurer de 1'exactitude de sa description : 

" Nous somines, dit-elle, dans un pays qni devient plus dnr que jamais ; nous n'y voyons 
rien qui puisse plaire ; on n'y parle que de misere, de mauvaisc foi, de calomnies, de procfes, 
dc divisions. Tout le moiule se plaint, et personne ne remedie a rien. .Te crois (pic Dieii 
ch&tie cette colonie pour les crimes qui s'y commettent, et les bons souffrent avec les mediants, 
les uus pour s'epurer, les autres pour faire penitence." 

Elle ajoutait, en 1733 : 

" Nous sommes dans un siecle ou je crains tout, car la corruption est a son comble ; nous

il reste bien peu de foi dans le nionde." 

Le clerge du Canada avait evidemment beaueoup a t'aire ; mais il fut a la hauteur de sa 
tncho. L'auteur, deja cite, des Memoires sur les Aftaires du Canada ne rend justice ni a M r 
de I'onthriand, ni aux jesuites, ni aux rocollets, lii aux sulpiciens de Npoque ; il n'y a quo 
lo soininairo et le on re tie Quebec, M. Resche, qu'il traite avec bienveillance. Voici ce qu'il 
dit des nulpicieiiH : 

Lo srininairo de Saint-Sulpice, liaut et puissant, se regardait comrae le souverain et 
1'arbitrc du pavs : on no pouvait ni agir, ni rien t'aire a Montreal que conformement Pleura 
idres : eeiisours <lu public. ils t'oivaiont los particuliers ;\ leur ouvrir leurs maisons, pour y

!, co pa^airf. " di'-pit ilu inaiivais esprit qui I'aninie, il resulte clairement que les sul- 
pii-ii'ii- avainit lii-aiii-iiiiji <lr /Mr rt il'antui-iti-, rt i|ifils jouissaient a Montreal d'une grande

vugus doinioilios ot sodontairos : la mission do Caughnawaga. On y compta jusqu'^ trois 
eentH guerrierH iroipiois. Kilo etait sous la direction dos pores jesuites. II y avait un fort,

P. Tournois, qui e"tait alors directeur <le la mission. 1 

De 1'autre cote de Montreal, au Sault-au-Recollet, se trouvait une autre mission de sau- 
vages sedentaires ; il y avait en 1716, cent cinquante gucrriers iroqnois, algonquins et 
hurons. Cette mission, eommencee en 1696, 2 appartenait aux sulpieiens. Le scminaire 
de Montreal y avait fait construire une belle eglise en pierrc. 3 

En 1714, les snlpiciens demanderent & lacour de France, par I'entremise de M. L'Kebns- 
sier, superieur de Paris, qne la mission tut transported ait lae des Helix-Montagues : et il 
fut convenu, en eft'et, " qu'il etait necessaire pour le bien de 1'ile de Montreal, et la mettre 
a convert des insultes des autres sauvages, en eas de guerre, dc placer ccttc mission a 1'cii- 
droit demande." 4 

Le gouverncur, M. de Vandrenil, et rintendant l?egon signc-rent le 17 octobce 1717, en 
faveur des sulpiciens, 1'acte de concession du terrain du lac des Deiix-Monta^nes ; cette con- 
cession tut confirmee par le roi le 27 avril 171S, e( eiiregistrec an Coiiscil siipc'rieur de (Quebec 
le 2 octobre 1710. 

La mission du Sault-au-Recollet fut close en 17L'l, et transtrn'e alor> an lac <!<> |)cii\- 
Montagnes. Les sulpiciens se haterent d'y organiser tout ce (jui etail mVcssaiiv pour I'ii^tal- 
lation de leurs neophytes. On y eonstrnisit mi fort et une c^Tise en pierce. 1 

C'est k cette mission du lac des Deux-Montagnes i|iie M. I'icijiiet I'ut en\d\i' en 17:',!i. 
II y resta dix ans. 

Ceux qui out visjte le lac des Deux-Montagnes n'ont pu s'empeclier d'ailniirer cet 
endroit enchanteur, cette belle nappe d'eau, sillonnc'e par les vaisseaux qui deseendent on 
remontent 1'Ottawa, ce superbe etablisseinent d'Oka, 1 ' 1 graeieusemenl assis au pied de collines 
verdoyantes, et derriere ees collines 7 les deux mont agues, bien gacnies de bois sains et 
toufFus, qui out donne leur nom au lae et a, toitte la contcee avoisinante : sue le somnict 
d'une de ces montagncs, sc dessine un jietit groupe d'ermitages, dont I'l'datante blandicuc 
rayonne sur la sombre verdure de la tbcet ; le touriste, en les apereevaiit de loin, se rappelle 
involontairement le eelebre pelerinage de In, Mudninin <lc.l S'</.vxo, a la fete du lac Majeiir :

Sulpice : une partie des mure a ote conservtfe dans la construction do cette maison. II etait de forme (juailran- 
gulaire, et renfermait une partie de ce qui est anjourd'hui le jardin. Une nouvelle ('glise a remplati' 1'ancienne 
qui est devenue la proie des flammes en 1877 : elle est de style roman. 

6 Le nom d'Oka a et6 donne il la mission du lac par M. I'abb6 Mercier, lorsqu'il en etait le directeur, en 18<J7, 
Oka est un mot sauvage, qui veut dire poisson dore. 

7 Ces collines, formees de sable aride, et minees sourdement par 1'action de 1'eau qui descend des montagnes, 
nienagaient, il y a quelques ann^es, de se dt'sagreger, et le sable envahissait d^ji le village, lorsque M. 1'abW 
Lefebvre, le cur6 actuel d'Oka, proposa 4 ses confreres de Saint-Sulpice nn moyen d'arre'ter le fleau, Le si'tninairo 
de Montreal souscrivit g6n<jreusement 4 sa proposition. Dans 1'espace de quelques semaines, plus de cinquante 
mille arbres, pins, cedres et epinettes, furent plant^s sur ces coteaux sablonneux ; puis, entre les rangees d'arbres 
bien align<5es, on sema & profusion de la graine de mil et de trefle. Le sol, d^sormais proteg^ centre le vent et 
consolide par les racines des arbres, se couvrit bientot d'un gazon vigonreux. Les collines autrefois dlnmiees sont 
maintenant revalues d'une riche verdure; et tout danger de desagregation a disparu. Jamais 1'ancien adage ne 
s'est mieux v6rifi6 : Omne IvJit punctum qui miscuit utile duld. 


ce sent lea chapelles du Calvaire, 1 qui doivent leur existence a M. Picquet ; t<5moins vivants 
do *a foi, do sa religion, dc sa piete, elles perpcStuent le souvenir de son nom et proclament 
bien hnut BOM zele eelainS pour la civilisation des sauvages. 

Pour le hut que Ton voulait atteindre, former une mission de sauvages sedentaires, et y 
attirer le plus do sauvages possible, afin do les Christian iser, on ne pouvait choisir un lieu 
plus favorable quo le lac des Pcux-Montagnes, car il so trouvo preeminent sur le chemin que 
Muvaiont les Algonquin*. Ics Nipissiugs et les Hurons lorsqu'ils descendaient pour la traite a 
Montreal on a Quebec. M. 1'iequct les guettait an passage, les attirait a lui, les engageait a 
re-ter plusieurs scmaines a la mission, et lour onseignait les verites de la religion. II ne se 
passait pas d'annee qu'il nVn baptisat t rente on quarante. 

I! .ettntvait aiissi de les faire renonccr a leur vie errante et vagabonde. II rdussit a en 
tixer un irrand nomUv. et leur apprit a cultivcr la terre. 

I! attiraaii-M heaiio.up d' Iro,,uois ; <le sorte (|ii'il cut hientftt a Oka quatrc petits villages

., i. -nait alr. r-ur se. irardi-s. 

I .a pri-e de Liiuirlmiirir en 174."i jela la consternation dans le Canada. On eraignait 
beaiici.up .pie les Anglais, protitaiit tie leur victoire, ne se rendisseut jusqu'a Quebec. On 
craitrnait snrtout ijiu- les salivates, se rangeaut eoinim- d'habitude du cote du plus fort, ne BC 
tmiriiassent i-uiitn- la France et ne iissont (pielque niauvais coup. " M. Picquet, dit Lalande, 
repondit de eette partie." II siit nous garder 1'amitie des sauvages, memc des Iroquois. 

I^i giu-rre, rependant, eoiitinuait entre 1'Angleterre et la France. La flotte du due 
d' Anville. destinee a reprendre Louisbourg, avait ete detruite. M. de la Jonquibrc, nomm4 
goiiverm-ur du Canada, venait d'etre fait prisonnicr par les Anglais; et M. de la Galis- 
soniere etait nomme, a sa place, administrateur de la colonie. 

Dans 1'i-te <le 1747, M. Picquet descendit a Quebec avec soixante guerriers iroquoia. II 
voulait les mot t re en rapport avec le nouveau gouverneur, M. de la Galissoniere, croyant 
aans doute que rien n'etait plus propre ;\ attachcr ces sauvages a la France, que de leur faire 

1 II y en a wpt, main on ne voit de loin que lea trois dernicres : lesquatre autres sont perJues dans la fortt 
le Ionic >lu clifiniii qui conduit au somniet de la montagne. Ce sont de petiu ermitages de forme qnadrangulaire,

wvn de la Paasion, et en avait placr un dans cliacune de ces chapelles. Mais couinie cea toiles, d'un grand

ce plerinage one indulgence pl^-nirre que M. Picquet lui-meme obtint du souverain pontife. 


oonnattre cet homme distingue, cc savant remarqnable, cc milituirc intrepide qu'ellc noun 
avait envoye. Sa demarche tut couronnee d'nn grand twcces. LCS Iroqiiois fureiit eiichan- 
tes de 1'accueil qui leur tut fait a Quebec ; ilsjurerent tidelite a la France ; et lorsque plus 
tard Us retournerent dans leur pays il.s nous recruterent bon nombre d'allies. 

A Quebec, M. Picquet ne s'appliqua pas seulcment a taire de ces Iroqiiois dcs amis 
dcvoues a la France, il travailla aussi a en taire de IKMIS chretieiis, et emplova a les evangc- 
liser tout le temps qu'il demeura avec eux. Mais laissons purler ici MM. de la (ialissoniere 
et Hocquart ; leur lettre an ministre de la marine ne fait pas nioins leur clogc quc celui dc 
1'abbe Picquet : 

"II est a propos, monseigneur, ([tie vous soycz infornic i|iic, pendant le loin; scjoiir qiie

1'avenir nous le fera connaitre encore inieux. 

" Le sieur Picquet prepare 1'ouvrage dcpuis longtemps avec licaiic-c>u]p d'aclrcssc et dc 
zele. II a dans le village dcs Cinq-Nations quelques-uns dc-s sauvagcs dn lac-, dc-s plus sages. 
ct qui lui sont affidcs, dont il sc serf pour gagncr Ics autn-s. N"ous 1'avons eiieouragt' 1 ;'t 
suivre ce qu'il a commence, ct il sc fiatte du succes. 

" Cet eeclesiastique est parfaitcinent desinteresse, et emploie une partic de smi rcvcnu

de demander pour lui ;\ Sa Majestc une pension snr Ics l)enetieesde (i a 800 livres ; il n'en 
pent taire qu'un bon usage et quc pour une tin tres eonvonable.'' 

II est evident que 1'abbe Picquet, duraiit son si'joiir a (iiit'bcc, avait tail unc- exi-dli'iilc 
impression ;\ M. de la Qalissonifere. De son cote, le gouverneur avait dulaisser clans 1'esprir 
du digue sulpicien line haute idee dc scs talents ct dc ses capac-itc's administratives. 

En arrivant au Canada, M. de la Qalissonierc vit tout dcsuitcle coti' I'aible de la c-olonie. 
La France pretendait, et avec raison, a la possession de tout le tcrritoire amerieain nu'elle 
avait decouvert. Etait-ce en vain que les Champlain, les Xicolct, Ics .lolliet ct les Murqwette, 
les Cavelier de La Salle, ct tout recemment (174:5) Ics Varcnnes <!* la Verandrye avaient 
parcouru ce vastc territoire, au prix de fatigues ct de dangers iucroyables, avec une ardeur 
et une iutrepidite qui nous etonnent, ct qui n'exciterent pas nioins 1'admiration dc leurs 
contemporains que, dc nos jours, Ics courses de Stanley et de Livingstone a travers 
1'Afriquc n'ont excite la u6tre? 

La France pretendait avoir droit a tout lc territoire qui s'eteudait depuis les Alleghanys 
jusqu'aux montagnes Kochcuses. Oui ; mais elle avait oublie de prendre effieacement pos- 
session de ce vaste domaiue. Qucls etablissements avait-clle, par exemple, dans la grande 
vallee de 1'Ohio ou Belle-Riviere?

II lui donna le nom de la Presentation, en I'honneur, sans doute, du jour ou, chaque 
annee, les pretres de Saint-Sulpice ronouvcllent solcnnellcmont leurs promesses clericales, 
" ct ce choix fut approuve de ses superieurs." ' 

Voici en quels termes il rcndait compte, 1'annee snivantc, ;\ M. do la Galissoniere, do 
son voyage, de ses travaux a la Presentation, de ses esperanccs, do la situation de son 
e"tablissement. On remarquera les propositions qu'il faisait au gouvernenr pour I'amelio- 
ration de la navigation dans les rapides du Saint-Laurent : ces propositions ne sont pas d'un 
homme ordinaire, et denotent un esprit pratique : 

" Voici en substance, monsieur, ce que j'ai deja en I'lionm-nr de vous ecrire dans 
plusieurs lettres successivement, que M. de Beaudicourt '-' m'a (lit ([tic vous n'aviex jias replies. 

" Je partis de Montreal, conimc vous le savez, le !> niai, Men cliarnie, en m'eloijrnant,

" Je passai par le lac des Deux-Montagnes pour y prendre ma eliapelle et mes hardes, 
et j'y appris que les gens du Sault-Saint-Louis n'avaient eu pour objet dans 1'alarnie qu'ils 
donnerent ce printernps, que de m'einpecber de suiviv ma route. Je ne crois pas. (|iioi qii'on 
puisse dire, que personne lour ait inspire cette maim-uvre : les sauvages sont assex coquins, 
e*tourdis ou betes, pour fa ire de leur tete de pareilles affaires, coinnie cela s'est vn pi-ndant

" Je ne parlerai point des niauvais raisonnements que des envoves sauva^es de Ladiine

Cette inscription latine est premlee d'une note qui est comme le titre du Reuistre :

Le premier acte du Registre est du 9 Janvier 1750 ; le dernier, du 23 jnillet 1760. II y a, en tout, 409 baptcmes 
et 56 manages. 

A partir du 10 nov. 1759, lee sepultures se font " dans la grande ile des Galops nommee 1'lle Picquet" 

Dans ses dlfferents actes, M. Picquet se nomme " missionnaire de Saint-Sulpice, charge du nouvel etablisse-

nomroer par d/-riion le fort qni y fut bAti : la folie Picquet " ; ce qui ne 1'empeche pas de donner (p. 13) un magni- 
Aqne plan do fort de la Prtaentation. 


" La traversee n'a guere qu'un quart tie lieue au phis, et tous les canots qui tnontent et 
descendent ne sauraient passer ailleurs. 

" La vue en est extremement etendue, et elle n'est point bornee du cdtc d'en liaut. Un 
fort sur cette pointe serait imprenable, a cause qu'il serait impossible d'en fa ire les approches, 
et que rien ne le commanderait. J'ai dcja fait nettoyer tous ces endroits, ce qui rend cet 
e"tablisseinent dee plus agreables. 

" Le c5te" de Test est plus eleve, et va, par une peiite douce, en amphitheatre. On v pour- 
rait dans la suite bStir avantageusement une belle ville. 1 Mais sa jiointe ne s'avance pas si 
loin dans le large de la riviere, et la vue en est bien nioins etcndue.ct fort agivable en meinc

" La riviere de la Presentation est cgalcment belle et navigable jusqn'a sa naissance, 
qu'elle prend j\ la hauteur des terres dans un lac i|iii est tort beau, et i|iie les Sativaires 
appellent Massaouapi. Ce lac touehe presqite aux Agnicrs. et a Corlar. et aux habitations 
voisines des Anglais. 

" Une autre riviere asscz jolie tombe dedans, un pen phis has c|iie ee lae, et vient du 
c&te des villages des Cinq-Xations. Meaudicourt, qui a ete, suivant son estime et 
celle de ses gens, jusqu'A, trente lieues dans eette riviere avee un eanot de six places, vous 
rendra compte lui-meme de ses decouvertes. 

" Ce qui vient naturellement A la pensee est que les Anglais el les Iroijiiois des('ini|- 
Xations peuvent egalement descendre sur nous, en temps de guerre, par cette riviere, dmit 
les Anglais neanmoins n'ont aueune veritable eonnaissancc ; et si par malbeur |iciiir nous ils 
avaient pris possession de cette riviere plutot <|iie de celle de Cbouaguen.' ils nous auraient 
entierement bouche le passage de la riviere du fort Froiitenae, et ils auraient pu secnurir

Le qui avait couronne' en si pcu de temps rentreprise de M. Picquet a la Pre"seu- 
tation depassait toute attcnte. Aussi le bon missionnaire ecrivait-il on 1752 avec une satis- 
faction bien legitimc : " C'est un grand miracle que malgre 1'envie, lea contradictions, 
t'oppoaition presque generate de tons les villages sauvages, j'aie forme en moins de trois ans 
unc des plus florissantes missions du Canada. Je me trouvedone dans 1'occasion de pouvoir 
etendre 1'empire de Jesus-Christ et du roi, mes bons mattres, jusqu'aux cxtremites de ce 
nouveau monde, et de plus faire, avec quelques secours que vousme procurerez, que la France 
et PAngleterre ne pourraient faire avec plusieurs millions et toutes leurs troupes." ' 

L'annde precedente (1751), M. Picquet avait fait unc excursion sur le lac Ontario, dans 
le but de recruter dcs neophytes pour sa mission. II ecrivit le recit de son vovairc ; c'est un 
document interessant, qui nous fait, pour ainsi dire, accompagner le missionnairc dans sa 
course autour de ce lac si convoke alors par I'Angleterrc. 8 

Le canot monto par 1'abbe Picquet etai1 conduit par six Canadiens; un autre ranot le 
suivait, moHtc* par cinq sauvages. 

Apres avoir franchi les Mille-Iles, on arriva au fort Krontenac, on s'eleve aiijourd'hui la 
ville de Kingston. C'eta'it autrefois le rendez-vous dc heaucoup de sauvages ; i! n'v en avait. 
presque plus, parce que le fort. Oswego avait. pour eux hien plus d'attrait. 

A la bale de Quinte, N[. Picquet visita avec intt'ret I'umplaeemcnl dc rancicnne mission 
que MM. de Fenelon et Trouve y avaient etahlie.' " L'endroit. dit-il, est charmant, mais le 
terrain n'est pas bon." 

On se rendit ensuite a une tie voisine, on M. I'icipiet rei;ut la \'isite de raumonier du 
fort Frontenac, du commis du magaaiu et de plusicura autres personnes de la garnison. 
" Mes chasseurs, dit-il, m'avaient procure le moycu de leur donner un excellent ri'gal. Xous 
bumes, de tout cceur, a la sante des autorites civiles et ecrlesiastiqiii's, an bruit de notro 
mousqueteric, qui reussit parfaitement et rejouit lieaucoup les insulaires." II y avait, en 
eft'et, un certain n ombre de sauvages qui habi talent cette ile ; M. Picquet leur donna un 
festiu,les instruisit des verites de la foi,et tinit par les decider a se retirer a la Presentation. 

Nos excursionnistes cotoyerent durant huit jours la rive nord du lac Ontario et 
arriverent le 26 juin t\ un fort nouvellement construit, aiupiel on avait donne le nom du 
ministre de la marine du temps, M. Rouille. C'est ;\ cet endroit que s'eteud aujoiird'hui la 
florissante ville de Toronto. 

Le fort Rouille avait ete construit en 1749 par M. de Portneuf, pour y attirer les sau- 
vages du nord et les dissuader d'aller a Oswego, ou les Anglais les captaient par 1'appat de 
magnifiques marcbandises, qu'ils leur donnaient en echange de leurs pelleteries. Aussi 
avait-on approvisionne avec soin le fort Rouille : " Le vin, dit M. Picquet, est ici de la meil- 
leure qualite ; il ne manque rien dans ce fort ; tout y est abondant, beau et bon." 

Une tribu de Mississagues vint le supplier d'avoir pitie d'eux et de leur temoigner les 
memes bont38 qu'il avait pour les Iroquois, a qui il procurait des missionnaires. " Au lieu

fortement le desir d'y voir eonstruire 1111 tort par les Fram;ais ; mais, ajoute-t-il, il vaiidrait 
encore bien niieux detruire Oswego, et ne jainais laisscr les Anglais le reeonstruirc." 

Le 10, il arrive en face de ee poste si rcdotite. II a proniis a M. de Joncaire ct a scs

afin dc mieux le reconnaitre. " II est. commando, dit-il, prescpie de tons les cotes. ct l'on pent

Le bon missionnaire tit line nombreuse recrue de [irtwolvtcs an fort Krontciiac. |iuis 
poursuivit son voyage a la mission de la Presentation, on il rentra vers le ^0 juillet. et " t'nt

Ce nc fnt pas sans une grande douleur de part et d'autre (pie M. I'icipiet si 1 decida, 
deux ans plus tard, en 1753, :\ quitter encore une fois ses enfants bien-aiim's, pour nn voyage 
en Franco qu'il avait resolu d'entreprendre pour le bien de la eolonie.' II voulait rend re 
compte ;\ la Cour de ses travaux, solliciter des seeours pour son etablissement et amener 
avee lui quelques missionnaires. 

Avant de partir, il reunit les sauvages de la mission, et lour proposa de lui donner pour 
compagnons de voyage trois des plus considerables d'cntre eux. Son but etait d'en faire, 

1 II partit dans le mois de juillet, et fut remplac6 durant queUjues mois par M. Etesson ; puis, i 1'autonnne, M. 
Ddpdret, cure de Sainte-Anne du Bout-de-1'Ile, fut envoytf comme missiounaire a la Presentation A la place de M. 
Picquet: son premier acte est du 7 octobre. On ne retrouve la signature de M. Picqnet que le ISjuin 1755.

pour uiiisi dire, des otages, dc maniere a assurer la paix, durant son absence, a la Pre"sen- 
tation, par la crainte qu'auraient lea sauvages de ne pas voir revenir leurs compatriotes, s'ils 
so rondaient coupablos de quelqiies desordres. II voulait aussi, par la vue de ces sauvages, 
iiiU-iviwor los Francais It 1'u'uvre de leur civilisation. II voulait surtout attacber de plus en 
phis les Iroqiiois a la cause do la Franco, persuade qu'ils seraient enchante's de 1'accueil qui 
scrait fait la-has a lours compatriotes. 

On lui accorda volontiers los trois sauvages qu'il demandait, et il s'embarqua avec eux 
ct lion iioiuhrc d'autrcs passagors sur Y Al<j<>n<iin, un vaisseau construit a Quebec meme. 1

La paix d'Aix-la-Chapelle n'avait qu'assoupi, suivant Fexpression de M. de la Galis- 
soniere, la jalousie des Anglais en Europe, mais cette jalousie eclatait dans tonte sa force 
en Amerique. 1 Une compagnie s'etait formee dans la Virginie pour prendre possession des 
terres de la vallee de 1'Ohio. M. Picquet croyait si pen an niaintien, ou plutot a lYxistem-c

1752 au gouverneur la formation d'un parti de guerre compose de 3,NOO saiivasres, pour 
allcr chasser les Anglais do la vallee de 1'Oliio, et combat t re les sauvages i(iii leur etaicnt 
allies, a- savoir les Miamis et les Cherokces. 2 

On ne donna pas suite ;\ son projet, sans doute par un respect exrcssil'dcs traiti's. Mais

1'amitie de la France, ;\ auginenter et a fortifier sa mission de la I "resentation : et ]<>rsc|ii Yn 1 7.")4,

que la guerre de Sept ans ne tut ddclaree en Kurope, ses sauvages ne I'nreiit pas le> dcrniiT> 
a se rendre sur le theatre des dvenements et contribuerent hcaueoiip a la Iirillante vidoiiv 
de M. de Viliers au fort Xeeessite. Le vaimpietir rentra en trimuplie an furl I)iii|iiesne. i|iii 
venait d'etre construit. "Aiiciin pavillun anglais, dit Nf. I'arkiiian, ue tlottait [iln> di'-<>r- 
mais au dela des Alleghanys." ' 

Mais voila que le 8 juin 1755, 1'amiral Boscawen, avee une eseadre de i|iiai(>r/.e \-aican\ 
de guerre, rencontre sur les banes de Terreneuve deux navires IVan<;ais. et s'en einpare. sans 
combat, au mepris du droit des nations. 1'resquc en nienie temps, des eursaires anglais 
enl^vent plus de trois cents batiments de eommerci 1 qni navigiient sur la 1'oi des traiti's. Kn 
meme temps aussi, le 10 juin, 1'armee du general Uraddoek se met en maivlie pour t'randiir 
les Alleghanys. Le signal de la guerre est donne parto\it : et Louis XV se decide a envover 
des troupes au Canada. 

Braddock s'avance sur le fort Duqnesne, ([iii s'eleve a 1'endroit on la riviere Alli'tflianv 
et la Monongahela sejoignent pour former 1'Ohio. Mais M. de Contrecieiir est la. avec, ses 
in trepides lieutenants deBeaujeu, Dumas et Ligneris. 

On connait les incidents de la fameuse victoire de la Monongahela, a laijiielle M de 
Beaujeu a attache son nom. Cette victoire tut due en grande partic au concours des >au- 
vages; 4 et il est certain que la plupart de ees sauvages etaient la a la demande. et pour ainsi 
dire sous les ordres de 1'abbe Pic(piet. M. Duqnesne lui avait recommaiide d'envcyt-r le 
plus qu'il lui serait possible de detachements sauvages a 1'encontre du general Uraddoek, et 
le missionnaire avait mi? un zele incroyable a obeir aux volontea du gouverneur. Cet 
evenement (la defaite de Braddock), on le dut principalement, dit Lalande, aux soins que se 
donna M. Picquet pour 1'execution des ordres de M. Duquesne dans cette expedition. L'as- 
sii ranee qu'il donna ;\ ses sauvagcs qu'ils vaincraient 1'ennemi, echauffa tellement leur imagi- 
nation, qu'ils croyaient dans le combat voir le missionnaire a. leur tete les encourager et leur 
promettre la victoire, quoiqu'il flit eloigne d'eux de pres de cent cinquantc lieues. C'etait 
14, ajoute Lalande, une de leurs superstitions dontil avait bien de la peine ;\les fairerevenir." 

On le voit, M. Picquet n'e'tait present que de eceur ;V la Monongahela ; mais il assista de 
sa personne, comme aum&nier de ses sauvages, 4 plusieurs de nos expeditions contre les

La petite ariin'-e fait bieiitot son apparition an milieu des souches, de bnissons, dcs

adressant chaleureuscment la parole, leur recommande de ne pas fairc qnartier aux ennemil

Ilaldimand cst pris par surprise. Bon nombre de scs soldats sont disperses dans la foret,

jainais perdu pour la France, et le vieil adage Sir n /m// /<;///* est unc I'ois de plus veritie. 
Quebec a capitule. De Montreal, M. de \'ainlreuil in'gocie encore avec les sauva^v^ pai- !<

le Registre de la mission t'st du 10 mai ITiiH. Mais eiitin il taut partir. car il ne pent sc

Tons les Anglais ne peusaieut pas comme le general Andierst : un grand nombreavaient 
mis a prix la tete de M. Picquet. On raconte ijiie les sauvages se saisireiit un jour d'un 
officier anglais qui etait dans ces dispositions, c't 1'amenant a M. Picc|iiet. ils se mireiit a 
danser autour de lui avec letirs casse-tetes, attendant dc leur vem're missionnaire le signal de 
la decapitation. Celui-ci ue leur repondit (ju'en t'aisant grace a sou ennenii. 

On sait que M. de Levis ne se soumit ([ii'a eontrecu-ur a la capitulation de Montreal par 
M. de Vaudreuil ; il protesta surtout centre la clause (mi obligeait les soldats fran^aisamettre 
bas les armes et a ne plus servir durant la presente guerre. "II otfrait a M. de Vaudreuil 
de se retirer avee ses troupes sur 1'ile Sainte-IIelene ; il avait menu- I'esperauce, si la France 
ne pouvait rester maitresse du Canada, qu'on pourrait engager un grand nombre dc C'ana- 
dicns de remonter par les lacs jusqu'aux Illinois, et d'aller se fixer a la Louisiane. II se 
soumit cependant ^ la volonte de M. de Vaudreuil, et acceptales conditions qui furent impo-

M. Picquct n'h&ita pas a executer, pour sa part, la resolution concue par M. do Levis. 
Au lieu tie s'en retourner en France par la voie ordinaire, ou il lui aurait fallu rcncontrer Ics 
fnncmis do sa patrie, il prit le chemin des grands lacs, des Illinois et. de la Louisiane. 

" II espcrait, dans cette retraite, dit Lalande, eiuinener avee lui les grenadiers de chaque 
tmtnilliin, pour sauver ainsi les drapeaux et I'lioniieur de lour corps ; niais il n'en fut pas le 
maitre. II tut oblige de se contenter de vingt-cinq Francis qni I'accompagn&rent juequ'i 
la I/>uisiane. 11 avait avec lui deux petits detachements de sauvages, dont Tun le preeedait 
de quclqiics lieucs, et 1'autre raccompagnait, et ils ctaient releves successiveraent par de

M. de Vaudivuil se plaisait a vanter ses talents pour gagner 1'esprit des sauvages, ses 
resources dans les nioiiieuts critiques, et sou activite pour tout ce (pii pouvait promouvoir 
les int.'-rets de 1'Ktat et de la religion. M. de Bougainville disait que son credit aupres des

denieura asscz longtemps au mont Valerien. 

L'Assemble'e generate du clerge de France, en 1765, lui oft'rit une gratification de 1,200 
livres, en reconnaissance des services qu'il avail rendus au Canada: cello de 1770 en tit 
autiint. II accepta avec reconnaissance, remerciant du fond du ccrur la divine providence 
de lui procurer ainsi le moyen de realiser un vd'ii qu'il avait to rim' depuis longtemps. 

Tout jeune, il avait desire d'aller i Rome ; inais les citvoustauces 1'eii avaient ompecbe. 
En 1777, il entreprit lc> voyage. La ronoimneo de ses vertus, de ses travaiix et de son 
merite 1'avait precede dans la Ville Eternolle. II fut re<;u par le soiiverain poutife avec 
unc bienveillance toute speciale, conime un missionnaire qui avait reiidu de irrands services 
a 1'eglise et a son pays. Le Saint-Pere, qui goiivernait alors realise, t'tait I'illustiv Pie VI. 
de la grande famille des Brasclii, cet hoinnu> de eu>ur et de <o'nie dunt les int'ortiiiies out 
immortalise la memoire. II ne se contenta pas de vaines paroles de louange,i, dc ti'lieitations, 
d' encouragement a 1'adresse de M. Picqnet : il insista ]icmr lui t'aire acce]pter une <rratiliration 
de 5,000 livrcs, sous pretexte de lui defray cr ses depenses de vovaire. 

On tit des efforts iuutiles pour reteiiir a Rome M. I'icqiiet; il reviut en Miv-se, son 
pays natal, et y apporta des rcliques, qu'il expo.-.a a la veneration des HiK-les dans 1'i'irlise 
collegiale de Bourg, dont il avait et/' fait diaiioine honoraire. 

Quelque temps apres, il se ivndit a ('limy, jioiir y visiter uu iieveii (|ii'il estimait

" M. Picquet etait d'une taille avantageuse et imposante, ecrit Lalande. son ami. qui 
1'avait si bieu connu : il avait une physioiiomie ouverte et engageante ; il t'tait d'une 
humeur gaie. Malgre 1'austerite de ses mn-urs, il ne respirail (jiic la gaii'te ; il f'aisait ties 
conversions au son des instruments ; il etait theologien, orateur, poete : il cbantait et eom- 
posait des cantiques, soit en fram;ais, soit en iroquois, avec lesqucls il rccivait et iuteressait 
les sauvages. II etait enfant avec les uus, lu'ros avec les autrcs. Son indnstrie memc en 
mecanique le f'aisait quelquefois admirer des sauvages. Kniin, il savait employer tons les 
moyens propres a attirer des proselytes, et ;Y se les attacher : aussi, eut-il tout le succes 
qu'on pouvait attendre de son Industrie, de ses talents et de son zele." 

" Une pbysionomie ouverte et engageante," voili\ bien, on effet, ce que Ton remarque 
dans le portrait de M. Picquet, suspendu dans une des salles de la maison des messieurs de 
Saint-Sulpice, au lac des Deux-Montagnes. Mais cc qui frappe le plus, cependant, dans ces 
yeux vifs et pe'tillants, dans ces levres un pen dedaigneuses, dans tous ces traits, en general, 
c'est la determination : M. Picquet etait vraiment un bomme decide. II tend la main vere 
un objet, sa mission de Souekatsi, sans doute, et semble nous dire : " Voila ce que j'ai reussi 
^ faire,'malgre les contradictions presque generales des habitants de cette colonie."

d'etablissements stables. 

Le contrat portant reconiiaissanc'e des articles accordes par Louis XIII, en date du 4 
mai 1627, donnait i\ la compagnie des Cent-Associes, "entoute propriete, justice et sci- 
" gncuric, le Fort et Habitation do Quebec, avec tout ledit pays <le la Nouvelle-Franco, dite

" Douce et an dela, etc., etc." 

Le traite de Saint-Gertnain-en-Laye, du -it mars lii-'!2, restituait a la France \\\< !>> 
lienx occnpes par les snjets de la Grande-Bretagne, e'cst-a-diiv. 1'Acadie et la N'ouvelle- 
France qui comprenait le Sagnenay, le Labrador et les terres adjaeentes. telles ipie decrites 
dans les articles du 4 mai 1027, <|iii n'avaient souleve auciine protestation de la part <le la 
couronne britannique. 

L'edit de creation dela Compagnie des [tides occidentales, du mois de mai Iilii4.ini 
accordait la liberte du commerce dans le Canada, 1'ile de Terreneuve et les autre- lies du 
nord, etc. 

Done, en 1668, quand les Anglais vinrent arliorer leur drapeau sur les rives de la bale 
d'lludson, ils agissaient contrairement ;\ nn traite (|iii n'avait pas subi de revocation. Les 
sauvages, dn reste, reconnaissaient volontiers la snpreinatie !'ram;aise. et lors<|ii'en liJTn.

compris les Cristinos, repondireiit a 1'invitation, cl s'engagerent par nn paete >oleiinel a 
accepter la domination de la France. 

Devons-nous admettre que la dcconvertc d'un pays <|ii'mie prise de possi-ssion ne suit 
pas de pros, ne constitue }>as nn titre de propriete ? l>u temps de la reine Klix.alietli, 
vers 1'annee 1580, rAngleterre s'effor^a de faire agree r cot to admission emume priueipe de 
droit public, lorsqu'elle resista aux pretentious des Espagnols, qui se disaient les rois de la 
mer, en vertu d'un privilege accorde par le souverain pontil'e. N'oici ce i|iic' dit Camden a 
ce sujet ; " De meme qne la reine Elizabeth ne reconnaissait pas le titre donm'- par I'l'vecjue 
" de Rome aux Espagnols, de meme elle ne leur rcconnaissait de titres <pie pour les lieiix 
" dont ils etaient en possession ; car, n'ayant aborde (pie ci et la le long des cotes, et 
" donne des noms a quelques rivieres on caps, tontes choses d'aucune portee, ils ne pouvaient 
" s'en reclamer pour faire agreer lours titres de propriete, excepte dans les endroitn ipi'ils 
u habitaient et qn'ils n'avaient pas eesse d'habiter." 

Les pretendus titres de Cabot et d'lludson tombent par la meme, car ce qui est juste 
centre 1'Espagne en faveur de 1'Angleterre, doit 1'etre egalement contre cette denuere on 
favour de la France et des autres puissances enropeenncs. La colonisation immediate on 
1'habitation persistante faisant defaut, il s'en suit que rAngleterre, en 1668, ne pouvait pas 
s'attribuer la souverainete des terres arctiques, ' pas plus qu'clle no pouvait interposer son 
autorite sur les sauvages de la Nouvelle-France. Ceux-ci, habitues qu'ils etaient <\ vivre ;\ 
c6te des Frai^ais et a trafiquer avec eux, se portaient plntot vers les postes du Saint-Laurent

La compagnie s'mtilulait: " The Qorrrnor and Company of A'ltentuTeri of England, trading into lludton'* Bay." 


" commerce en fourrures, mine'raux on autres marchandiscs importantes, et que ces entre- 
" prises ont dej;\ produit des de"couvertes suffisantes pour encourager les participants a pour- 
" suivre leurs desseins, dont il y a apparence qu'il pourra revenir des avantages considerables 
" a Nous et & nos Royaumes, etc., etc." 

Pour ces raisons le roi accordait au prince Rupert et a ses associes,' le commerce et le 
territoirc de la baie d'lludson, comme privilege exclusif, a la seule condition de relever du 
chateau de Greenwich, dans le comte de Kent, avec une redevanee de deux elans et de 
deux castors noirs par an. 

Le premier fonds de la compagnie monta seulement a 10, ">00 sterling, on environ 
240,000 francs. Sir John Kertk souscrivit 300 pour sa part. Le comite de direction se 
composait de sept membres, etle prince Rupert, principal actionnaire. t'ut nomine troiivenicur 
de la nouvelle compagnie. 

La creation de ce monopole en faveur d'un petit groiipe dc favoris du roi. dcvait 
soulever une opposition terrible, qui dura pivs de deux cents ans. jusqii'a ce que les droit- 
et privileges de la compagnie furent am'antis par un arbitrage et mi acliat ri'^ulicr. 

Les motifs invoques contre les pretendus privileges de la compairnic se tirent de qiiativ 
chefs principaux : 1' la charte du 2 mai Ki70 ne t'ut pas ratitice par lc roi: 2' la eouroinif 
n'avait pas le droit d'accorder le monopole du commerce a des favoris : -'! la compairii' 
jamais rempli 1'iin des huts de sa formation, (pii ctaif la deconvertc d'un passage 
atteindre la mer du Sud ; 4" une partie au moins des territoires reclaim's par la conq 
avait ete donnee, en 1598, par le roi de France au marquis de la Roche. 

En 1847, parut pour la premiere tbis mi document dont le goiivernement anglai- 
semble jusque-la meconuaitre 1'existeuce. II Cut trouvc par liasard dans les Roles dc la 
chancellerie. 1 ' 1 Ce document etait la continuation douin'e. en lii'.H). a la cliarte dc lt',7o. 
La compagnie avait alors demande la ratification de ses privileges, parce qii'ellf avait compris 
que la gratification royale, en dehors de 1'autorite du parlcincnt, serait insuflisaiitc a so I'm-. 
Le parlement la con firm a dans tons ses droits antericurs. inais seulement pour une pcriode 
de sept annees, et la compagnie ne s'occupa plus de la chose a I'expiration de cc ternic. 

L'annee qui vit naitre la compagnie de la baie d'lludson, Jean Talon, alors intcndant 
de la Nbuvelle-France, ecrivait a Colbert une lettre qui laissu perccr son inquietude au >ujct 
des agissements des Anglais dans la baie ; " Yous pouvex, Monscigncur. disait-il. connaitrc 
" par le memoire que je donne au roi, qu'il y a des aventuriers CMI campagne qui vont a la 
" decouverte des pays inconnus, et a la recherche des choses qui peuvent ft re utiles a sou 

" Etat. A mesure que j'aurai quelque avis, j'en ferai partir d'autres 1'ar le retoiir 

" des Algonqnins qui hivernerent cette annee a Tadoussac, j'apprends (pi'on a vu deux 
" vaisseaux europeens qui cabanent (c'est le tcrme des sauvages) assex prcs de la baie 
" d'Hudson. Apre.s avoir bien repasse sur toutes les nations qui peuvent avoir perce jusipi'a 
" ce lieu bien nord, je ne puis rabattre que sur I'anglaisc qui, sous la conduite d'un nomine 
" DesGrozeliers, autrefois habitant du Canada, a pu prendre la resolution de tenter cette 
" navigation de soi fort inconnue et pas moins dangereuse "

Craven, lord Arlington, lord Ashley, sir John North, sir James Hayes, sir William Young. " Les premiers pro-

graves raisons les induisireut sans doute a Itriser des liens aussi ]iiiissants. 

Quoi qu'il en soit, Chouart et Radissou se rendirent a I'aris an mois d'octoln-e I(i74. 
Colbert leur tit un excellent aceueil, et il s'engagea a tenir les pnunesses i|u'il leiir avait 
faites de les degrever de tontes dettes, et d'obtenir du roi leiii- ]iardon pour les t'antes de leur 
vie passee, enfin de leur payer coiuptant (juatre cents louis d't.r. Le tout sans prejudice 
d'un emploi lucratit'. Tout vint a point, a 1'exeeption de 1'emploi, qne C'olliert liesitait 
encore a leur accorder, a cause de Radisson, dont le manage eonstituait une mauvaise note 
aux yeux du ministre. 1'robablement en vue de se debarrasser de leurs obsessions, Colbert 
leur conseilla de se rcndre a Quebec, et de s'y entendre' avee le gouverneur touchant leur 
sort futur. Ils y allerent done, mais trouverent toutes K's avenues t'ermees, taut a raison de 
la jalousie des marchands que par I'inditterence de M. dc Frontenae, qui subissait 1'influence 
do son milieu. 

Radisson se separa de son beau-frere, pour retourner en France. Chouart demeura 
dans sa famille, a Trois-Rivieres, attendant des jours meilleurs. Rendu en France, Radisson 
prit du service dans la marine, sous Jean, due d'Estrees, vice-amiral de France, qui venait

Radisson arriva a Quebec, le 25 scptembre 1681. Chouart uc s'etait pan abnente du pays 
depuis le depart de son beau-frere, six ans auparavant. II n'etait plus jeune il avait attuint 
ses soixante ans mais le retourde son ancien compagnon d'aventurea lui fit retrouvcrlcgout 
de sa vie d'autrefois, et il n'hesita pas un instant a ott'rir ses services a M. de la Cbcnave. 
Celui-ci etait un marchand a 1'aise, et il pouvait risquer ties capitaux dans une entrcprise 
qui pouvait avoir une issue heureuse. Le commerce des fourrures a]*]iortait sotivent de <TOS 
benefices. Tout dependait de eeux qui s'y livraient ; s'ils avaient le talent de s'attirer la 
confiance des sauvages, s'ils parlaient leur langue, les chances leur t'taienf beaiicoup phis 
favorables. Chouart avait une longue experience jointe a une habilcte Imrs liirne. ("c'-tait 
un honime spirituel ; " il fait I'homine d'esprit, ecrivait la Merc dc 1'Incarnntion, eoniine 
en eft'et il en a beaucoup." ' De son cote, Radisson etait 1'activite en peisonne, et les scrn- 
pules ne derangeaint pas ses plans. Connaissant son sauvage connne pas un. il pmivait lenir 
tete, par la ruse et la fourberie, an plus ingenienx des Iroquois. 

Tons deux reussirent a persuader M. de la Clieiiayc <|if il y avait des pi-ntits a ri'ali>er 
dans le trafie avec les Cristinos. II leur pn>niit un vaisseau. pmn 1 le printeinps suivant. l,e 
plan etait fju'ils se rendraient immodiatemont a IVive sur le vaisseau en parlance dn xi\- 
verneur de 1'Acadie, qu'ils y passeraient 1'hiver pour prendre ensuite la route (!< la l>aie 
d'lludson. Frontenac leur accorda trois excellent^ compa t u:nons. dans la persoimr dc .Iran- 
Baptiste Chouart, lils de Medard - et neveu de Radisson, 1'icrre Alleiiiainl, pilot, rxp.'i-i- 
mente, et Jean-Baptistc Qodefroy, bon iuterprete. 

Radisson partit le 4 novembre avec scs trois honiiucs, laissaut a Quebec son beaii-l'ivre. 
qui devait le rejoindre an moment dn depart de I Vive, a la cloture de 1'liivcr. I^c \ai>-eau 
promis par Aubertde la Chenaye arriva an lieu et an temps dits, et Clioiiart vint a <<>i\ tour 
sur une barque de trente tonneaux, avee quin/.e homines d'equipage. 

Tout etant pret, les deux petits navires- cinglerent de 1'erci', le lljnillet lii^^. l,c 
voyage ne se tit pas sans quelque desagrement. Ce t'ut d'abord 1'equipagc <|iii. a tout instant. 
mena^ait de se mutiner, et <pie Ton ne n'nssit a pacifier qu'a turce dc pro messes et d'at lent ions. 
et pnis les glaces entravaient la marclu 1 des vaisseaux. Radisson arriva le premier pivs de 
la c6te oecidentale de la bale d'llndson, le -li aout. apres six semaines de navigation. 

Le 7 septembre, Chouart rejoignait son beau-frere, et tons deux entrereni dans une 
riviere appelee Kakionakiixi par les Indiens. :i 11 leur fallnt s'avancer jnsqu'a line profondeur

roiioontr.'s. Coqiie voyant avec crainte, il rosolut de se rendre matt re dcleur poste, maisplutot 
par la ruso qii'a main arinoo. Son premier plan d'attaque fut d'amener le jeune Gillam au fort 
fram,-ais ot do I'y rotenir sous divers pretextes pour Fempecher de communiquer avec son 
IK? re ot Bridger. C'est oe <|u'il tit prosfjuc sans aucune difficulte. Puis en Fabsence du 
mail re, il alia attaqner le fort des Bostonnais, et s'en empara sans coup ferir. Un Ecossais, 
qui avait refuse de se livrer, eourut avertir Bridger de la conduite de Radisson. Mais, 
foluw-i reniln pins audacieux jiar la peur d'une surprise, n'attendit pas qu'on vint le eoramer 
!> delivrer le jeune Gillam et sa troupe. Proliant avec lui une douzaine de bons hommes, 
il coiimt mis a FAnglais de Londres, desarma F equipage en un tour de main, et revint 
vietorienx aupres de s<m bean-frJ-re anxieux. 

L' Anglais et FAmurirain n'etaient plus leurs maitres, et la France rentrait dans ses 
dmitM, en fauant reconnaTtrc son autoritc aupres de ces intrua. 


Le restc de 1'hiver ne hit plus qn'une longue succession do mulheurs pour les equipages 
de Gillam, pere et fils. Quatre de leurs hommes moururent de faim, en courant les bois. 
Deux s'empoisonnerent par accident; un autre sc cassa un bras. Bridger, de HUH cflte, 
charmait ses nombreux loisirs en caressant la dive bouteille. ' Quand le printemps arriva, 
la debacle brisa le navire de Zachary Gillam. Touches de cos malhcnrs inintcrrompus, les 
Francais s'offrirent a lui preparer une grande barque pour sou retour. Bridircr ne vonlnt 
pas conrir les risques de la mer sur une aussi frele ombarcation, et il prcfera pn-ndre passage 
sur le vaisseau fraii9ais. Quant a Gillam, fila, il etait entendn qu'il suivrait les antres a 
Quebec, dans son propre navire, quo les Fran<;ais lui avaient eontisi|in'. 

Le depart de la baie d'lliulson cut lieu le 27 jnillet. IFnit Fram;ais v rcsterent. sous la 
conduite de Jean-Baptiste Chouart, a tin de former une eolonie stable. La flottillo arriva a 
Quebec :\ la fin d'octobre, nousans avoir eprottve de longs retards de navigation. Le l-Ybvre 
de la Barre, qui etait alors gouvernenr de la Nouvello-France, tit restituer an jeune <!illaiu

partit avec Gillam pour se rendre a IJoston. et de Boston en An^leterre.- 

L'acte de clemcnee du gouvernenr de la N'oiivelle-France a l'i'<;ard du jeune (iillam. I'm 
blame a la cour. M. dc Seiguelay lui eerivait le 10 avril suivant : 

" On no saurait s'imaginer ce quo vons ave/. pivtcndu, lorsijiie. de votre autorite, san.- 
" appeler I'Intendant, et sans porter 1'atlaire an Conseil soiiverain. vons ave/. tail reiidre an

" si bien reconnu quo ce vaisseau etait muni des expeditious in'i-essaires. ipie vons l'ave/. 
"fait rendre an proprietaire, et pretendront par ce moycn fa ire connaitre (pi'ils out pris 
" une possession legitime de la riviere de Xelson. avant (pie Icsdits Hadissoii et Desgroseliers 
" y eussent etc, ce qui serait tres prejndiciablc a la eolonie." 

Cette lettre severe avait sans doute etc inspiree jiar Cbonart et Kadisson. ipii s'i'taient 
transportes en France, a 1'automne qui vit leur retour de la baie d'lludson. Kn arrivant a 
la Rocbelle, ils avaient appris la mort de Colbert, a la deraande diii|Uel ils avaient entrepris 
ce voyage. Ils etaient ;\ Paris eu Janvier 1684. Lord Preston y remplissait alors les tbnetions 
d'ambassadeur delegue par 1'Angleterre, et il avait porte plaintc contre ia conduite des 
Frangais dans la baie d'lludson. Appelcs a se justitier, les deux beaux-treres s'en aeimit- 
terent victorieusement. "Loin d'avoir ete bhune, ecrit Radisson, je pnis dire, sans me flatter, 
" que je re9iis uue complete approbation. Je ne dis pas quo j'aie merite des elogcs, mais je 
" me suis eftbrce, dans tout ce que j'ai fait, d'agir en honncte bomme." 

1 II paraitrait que tous les eens de Bridger et de Gillam auraient p6ri de misere et de faim, s'ils n'eusseat 6t6 
proteges par Radipson. Du reste ils solliciterent Radisson de venir & leur secours. 

2 Radisson ecrit qu'il se separa en bons termes d'avec Bridger. " Je lui donnai Pa'wuranee, dit-il, que je portals 
un grand inttTet aux Anglais, que j'6tais dispose a serviret le roi d'Angleterre et la nation anglaise, avec tout 
le zele dont j'avais fait preuve 4 1'^gard de la France."

Les Anglais comprirent, quoique tard, de quellc taille etaient ces deux Fraucais, 
lorsqu'ils eurent pris connaissance de ce qu'ils avaient fait pour les marchands du Canada, 
en 1683 et 1684. Aussi ne doit-on pas etre surpris de la tactique de lord Preston, epuisant 
tous les moyens pour les ramener au service de son pays. Tout ce qu'ils pcuvent desirer il 
le leur promet, taut de la part de Sa Majeste que de la Compagnie de la baie d'Hudson et du 
gouvernement anglais. Ses promesses sont sanctionnees par sir "William Young et sir

Le sauvage s'empressa de courir informer le jeune Chouart do la venue de son oncle, et 
de la nfMivclle position qu'il occupait au milieu des Anglais. Le lendemain, Chouart arrivait 
en compagnie de trois Frangais et des sauvages de la veille. L'entrevue se fit dans rancicn 
fort frangais. Pendant quo ehacun s'amusait h discourir, Radissou prit son nevcn a part et 
lui i>arla a peu prfcs dans ces termes : " Tu te rappelles sans doute d'avoir entendu racontcr a 
" ton pere les peines et les fatigues qu'il dut endurer lorequ'il etait a 1'emploi dc la France. 
" II t'a aussi raconte quo la recompense que nous avions raison d'esperer d'elle, a tourne 
" en la plus noire ingratitude, aussi bien <le la part de la com- que de celle de la compagnie, 
" et qu'ayaut etc forges de chercher du service aillenrs, nous avons etc ac.-ueillis a l.ras ouverts 
" par les Anglais. 

"Tuconnais en outre les motifs qui out force ton pere et inoi a quitter 1' An^lrtcrrc 
" apres treize annees de service. Le besoin de vivre, le rel'iisde justice .me nous avou- cssuvc. 
" out donne lieu a notre rupture et a 1'etablissement que noiisavuns fait ici. pour la c.>n>cr- 
" vation duquel je t'ai laissc 1'annee dcrniere, lorsqiie je suis parti |iour la France, .\faistu 
"ignores sans doute, que le prince qui rcgne en Angleterre ' a desavoue les proccdes de la 
" compagnie a notre egard, et qu'il cst rauteiir de notre ivtmir aiix Anglais. .I'ai lai~>.' ton 
" pere a Loud res, plus heureux que nous, car son existence v est assutve, et dmvnavant il 
" pourra vivre dans la securite. Moi je suis veini t'appivndre que nous somnics niaintenant 
" sujets anglais, aimant mieux vivre sous le sept re d'uu mi clement et an >ervice d'un peuple 
" d'honneur que d'acccpter les ofi'res <|iie nous a t'aites le roi de France par rintenn.'diaire de 
" ses ministres, pour que nous travaillions indircctcment a sa propre tcloire. 

"J'ai regu 1'ordre, avant de quitter Londres, de prendre soin de toi. et de t'oNiuyr a 
" obeir a la loi anglaise. Tu es jeune et en .'tat de travailler avee I'm it a ta I'.trtuiie 
" personnelle. Si tu te decides a suivre m.m inclinatioii vers 1' An^leterre, je ne t'aband.m- 
" nerai point. Tu recevras le meme traitenu-nt que nioi. Je ferai en sorte que tu sois 

" satisfait, au detriment meme de mes interets -le t'aime, car nous sommes de ni-ine 

" sang. Je te sais courageux et resolu ; preiids vite ton parti, et prouve-nioi. par ta repiniM'. 
" que tu es digue des bontes du prince que je sers. Mais n'onblie point, avant tout. Irs 
" injures que les Fraucais out inHigees a celui qui t'a donne la vie, et que tu es en nion 
" pouvoir." 

Le jeune Chouart pouvait diffieilement resister si 1111 tel discours. Kntraine par les si'iiti- 
ments de loyaute a sa famille et a son pays, inoins peut-etre que par la crainte de ne pouvoir 
resister a des gens beaucoup plus puissants quo lui, il declara sur le champ a sou oncle qu'il 
etait pret a se soumettre, mais a la condition <pie Ton prendrait s.)in de sa mere, restee seule 
en Canada. 

Les sauvages, beaucoup plus attaches aux Francais qu'aux Anglais, se montrerent un pen 
plus difficilcs & convaincre. Us pretendirent que I'un des capitaines les avail trompes en 
leur assurant que Medard Chouart n'existait plus et que Radissou etait prisonnier de 
1'Augleterre. D'autres pretextferent leur pauvrete, disant que les Anglais etaient mesqnins 
dans leurs transactions. Ajoutons a cela difterentes gaueheries dont ces derniers s'etaient 
rendus coupables plut6t par ignorance que par defaut de jugement, et Ton comprendra 

1 Le roi d'Angleterre 4 cette 6poque etait Charles II ; il avail succ&te & son pc-re Charles I, en 1660, apix-8 les 
onze uiincVs d'interregne qui avaient suivi la mort de son pr&l^cesseur. C*e8t a Charles II que la Socie'tt 1 royale de

ilonin'-e. eii gage d'ainitie pour lui ot sa tribu. Ce chef avait bien conuu Radisson ; iln i-taieiit

vers le |Kste des Anglais, ;\ 1'embonchare de la riviere Nelson, bien d^termin^s d'y mettre lo 
feu. I'ar bonheur les Anglais furent avertis a temps du danger qui les menacait, et ils 

1 If per* Charlevciiz et la Poiherie 1'appellent Nieusavanne. LM Franjaia lui avaient d'abord donn le nom

coururent se cacher dans les bois. Plusieurs fois deji des Groseilliers avait tente de re"tablir 
la paix entre les sauvages et leurs adversaires, mais toujours saus resultat. Radisson arriva 
entin, et, comine nous 1'avons vu, il reussit ;\ tranquilliser les sauvages ct a les t'aire coimentir 
a tratiquer avcc leurs ennemis de la veille. 

Cette besogne terminee, Radisson n'eut riende plus presse que de proceder a I'inventairc 
dee pelleteries entassdes pardon neveu dans le tort frangais, duraut 1'hiver precedent. II v 
trouva 239 paqucts renfermant 12,000 pcaux de castor, et des marchandises qui, par IV-chan-rc, 
ponvaieiit en rapporter encore 7,000 on 8,000. C'etait, pour lui, unc fortune en perspective, 
an prix que se vendait le castor a Londres. II. donna anssitot 1'ordiv dc lain- porter 
068 richesses sur les navires qui devaient les transporter i-n Anglt.-tcrre. L;i IM-SO^HC niar-

liatf de donner la-bas des preuvi-s <U- son lialiilctr. Mais avant qiic dc partir. il cut unc 
dcmifere ent revue avee les sauvages, dont le diet' (''tail un vicilliird ti-cs vciieiv panni les >icnr-. 
Ce veteran de la baie lui tint a jieu pres cc langage : 

" Tete de Pore-Epic e'etait le noin imlicn de Radisson ton co-nr cst lion, et lu as en

Ce discours sentimental fut suivi de plusieurs autrcs dans lesipicls cc-; Indicns rccon- 
naissants epancherent leurs eccurs dans cclui dc leiir vicil ami Radisson. Cclui-ci leiir tit scs 
adieux, 11011 sans etre touche d'une dcmonstratinn qui prouvait leiir urande svinpalhic pour 
les Fran^ais. 

II ne restait plus qu'a terminer le chargement des vaisseaux. (V t'ut 1'aiiairc de IMIC!- 
quesjours. Radisson comptait les heures, tant il etait joyciix dc s'cii retourner avcc >a 
fortune. Une bien grande deception 1'attendait. ]A' gouvenn'iir, de sou propre inouvenient, 
sans le consulter, 'Jonna 1'ordre a tons les Fram;ais, sans en exccpter un seiil, dc s'einbarquer 
avec Radisson. Ce tut comme un coup de tbudre sur la tctc dc ct' dernier, et pen ne 
s'en fallut qu'il ne so querellat sericusement avec le haut representant de la compaguie. 
"Comment, lui dit-il, emmener mon neveu, mais j'ai re<;u instruction de sir Jaiiu-s Hayes de 
" le laisser ici, pour des raisons (pie vous dcvriex ctre le premier a comprendre. Comment 
" reussirez-vous, sans lui, h negocier avec les Indiens?" John Abraham se montra inflexible, 
et il fallut bien se soumettre ;\ son arret. Ce personnage, an dire de Radisson, detestait les 
Francais. II aurait pu ajouter qu'il les craignait encore davantage. Le jeune Chouart n'eut 
pas meme la permission de retourner a son fort pour y chercher des hardes et des papiers de 

L'escadre mit A, la voile le 4 scptembre, et le 23 octobrc elle arrivait aux Dunes, d'ou 
Radisson se transports ;\ cheval jusqu'il Londres. Leleudemain de son arrivee, sir William 
Young le preseutait au roi, qui ecouta avec attention le recit de ses exploits. Quelques 
jours plus tard, il comparaissait devant le comite de la compagnie, et lui faisait uu rapport 
circonstancie de son voyage. II faut croire qu'il ne fut pas heureux dans son expose, car au 
lieu de recevoir Papprobation qu'il attendant, il cut & subir un deni de justice. " On etait 
" jaloux, dit-il, parce que j'avais obtenu 1'insigne honneur d'etre presente au roi et a Son 
" Altesse royale."

En depit do tons so* motifs tie plaintes, Radisson n'en persista pas moins i demeurer en 
Anglctorre, avee son beau-frere. Quant an jeuiie des Groseilliers, il essaya par deux fois de 
HO saiivcr en France, inais il tut arrete ;\ chaque fois. II se ddcida alors d'4crire a 
M. tie Dononvillc, lui disant qu'il ri'tournerait au Canada aussitdt qu'il pourrait s'tSchapper.

Nous rations encore line tbis la presence do Radisson dans les oaux do la grande

juillet 1685, I'etablissement situe k quatre lieues du poste des Anglais, a la riviere Nelson 
lorsqu'en revenant a Quebec, il fit la rencontre d'un vaisseau arme do dix 011 don/.e canons of 
commando par le capitaine Oslar. Co navire, ({iii arborait le pavilion anglais, .portait le 
gouverneur Bridger, le memo que Radisson avait emmen4 a Quebec avee les deux (iillain, 
pere et tils. Au cours d'une conversation quo Bergor out avec le eapitaine ( >>lar. il apprit 
que Radisson et son neveu, Jean-Baptiste des Groseilliers, dtaient rondns an tort do Sainte- 
Therese, et avaient 1'intention d'y hiverncr. 1 

Cbarlevoix nous apprend qu'cn 1689, M. d'Iborville et son fiviv Maricourt, ivvcnant de 
la baie d'lludson, rencontrerent sur lour route un naviro anglais ou etait (Mioiiart. tils, "(|ui 
" n'avait pu encore se tirer des mains des Anglais dopnis la surin-ise <lu tort Xelson."

La descendance des families Chouart et Radisson s'est jierpi'tin'-e par les temmes, et 
encore ne fut-elle pas considerable. L'epouse do Chouart vocut a Trois-Rivieres, dans un 
etat voisin de la pauvreto. En Ii564, ({uand an retour do son voyage dans 1'onest. ChouaiM 
allait demander dcsmoyens d'existence aux Anglais de Boston, le Conseil Miuverain nbligeait 
M. de la Ferte de fournir a la feiume du mari absent " vingt-cinq livros de lard pour 1'aider

La France pardonna aux deux transfugos. En 1075, le roi signait en leiir favour des

le loup-marin dans les eaux du fleuve Saint-Laurent. Ce tut pour eux la dorniero favour 
de la fortune ; il etait statue" que Chouart et Radisson iraient tinir lours jours sur une 
terre etrangere, loin de leur famille, loin du pays natal et plus loin encore du Canada, 
leur patrie d'adoption. Leurs dernieres pensees devaient sans doute se tourner vers notre pays,

Voila pourquoi cette question, opportune en tout temps, semble cnqirnntcr nnc exccp-

qui cherelie a s'introduire en Canada; enlin, nous en montrerons 1'injustice et les tnncstes 
consequences, sans omettre de faire connattre comment., juscju'ici, la question sociale s'est 
trouv6e resolue tout naturellement dans la province de Quebec. 


Qu'il se rencontre dans les villes populeuses du Canada des individus aigris par la misere 
ou par 1'envie, qu'il y ait de ces pauvres desesperes parce qu'ils ont tons les vices des riches, 
des revoltes par nature, des sans religion, des declasses par le vice ou par la paresse, des gens 
en uu mot murs pour le pire socialisme, la chose est assurement probable. Mais, on nous 
accordera de dire que c'est le petit nombre, quo c'est 1'exception, et que les lois de police 
suffisent a proteger la propriete contre leurs entreprises.

et d'apparence inoffensive ; il vicnt dc 1'importance et clu caractere des socie'te's ouvrieres qui 
ont traverse la frontiere pour venir s'implanter pnrmi nous. Ce sont des unions ouvrieres, 
des associations de secours, des confreries d'artisans dont 1'objet parait Stre irreproehable en 
soi : inais leur origine est e"trangi>rc, et c'est la une tres grave objection. Ellessont amcricaincs

la balance peiidier tin cote des ind'-ivts anierieains. Kn voici un exemple.

-i.-ir.-ant aux Mtat I 'nis. apres exaiuen ilu eas des interesses, proclama la greve de tons les

et 1 mmefce du pays en t'ut ebranle. La lutte entra bientfit dans sa periode d'intensitt5. II 

i-tait raUomiable de penser ijiie les negociationa du cflte des conducteurs canadiens seraient 
coiifii'-es a leiirs propres delegues ; il n'en t'ut pas ainsi. Le lendemain de la greve, on vit 
arriver a U'innipeg deux on trois chefs du Grand-Conseil central amerieain, eux-memes 
employes sup/Tieiirs de elieinins ile fer, qui veuaieut s'emparer de ladirection du mouvement. 
i >r, tout le monde sail qiie le Paeifique-Canadien fait aux cbemins de fer de nos voisins une 
concurrence transcontinentale dt's plus actives, et que les cornpagnies amerieaines ne reculent 
devant aiicun nioyen pour entraverou paralyser leur terrible rivaledu Canada. Qu'arriva-t-il ? 
!,e- pourparlers entre les chefs de la greve et les autorites du Pacifique n'eurent d'abord 
aueun rei-ultat : les eboses se mirent ;\ trainer en longueur, et bientdt la crise se fit sentir 
partout. On etait an printemps, epoque du reveil des affaires et d'une grande activite dans le 
transport iles immigrants et des raarebandises. Un journal de Winnipeg se fit un beau matin 
I'l-cbo des inurniures, et, a mots converts, accusa la direction des gr^vistes de temporiser a 
dessein atin de Jeter sur les voies ferrees amerieaines le trafie qui ne pouvait attendre. Les 
direeteurs se defendirent ; mais quel ne fut pas 1'etonneraent quand on vit la rapidite avec 
laquelle les negoeiations furent tout a coup reprises et terminees ! Evidemment la d^noncia- 
tion uvuit prod ti it son ettet, et les chefs americains, en voyant leur jeu demasque, comprirent 
qu'il valait mieiix pour eux de s'en aller. 

On 1 voit, cette greve, 1'une des plus serieusea qui aient jamais eu lieu dans le pays, fut 
wir le |njiiit de causer un tort irreparable au Pacifi<|uc-Canadien en fournissant aux ligues 
ri vales de Etats-Unis lea moyens et 1'occasion de s'emparer de son trafie. 


Ceux qui aiment leur pays ont done bien raison de redouter cette autoriti* que nous per- 
mettonsaux Ame"ricain8 de venir exercer chez nous, autorite abaolue et irrespon sable, autorite 
susceptible de devenir a un moment donne", nous venons de le voir, niineuse pour lew interets 
canadiens. Et puis, il y a dans cette dependanee acceptee un oubli de dignite nationale et un 
e'le'ment de danger public qui ne font honneur ni a not-re fierte ni a notre sagacitc. 

Nous croyons les ouvriers du Canada assez intelligentH et assez eelaires pour regler leurs 
affaires sans avoir a se mettre a la remorquedes Unions americaines. S'ils craignent d'etre en 
temps de greve incommodes par les ouvriers des pays limitropbes, qu'ils n'ont pas dans 
le parlement un pouvoir qui les protegerait avec toute I'emVai'iti- desirable ''. (V <|iii se fait 
dans la republique voisine pourrait a cet ogard leur servir d'exemple. 

Car, enh'n, il est impossible de ne pas voir que c'est surtout pour empecber la concur- 
rence de 1'ouvrier canadien que 1'ouvrier amcricain a pousse ses unions a si- tain- iutcrna- 
tionales. C'est son interet propre qui 1'y a porte. II a pris les inoycns de rester maitre chex. 
lui, ou il ne souffre ni le journalier cbinois, ni le travailleur canadien. 

L'ouvrier americain,d'ordinaire bien pave n'emigre pas ; il meprisc la Chine et dedaiirne 
le Canada, mais il redonte 1'arrivee de leiirs travailleiirs. Aussi. avec quelle ailivsse il e>t 
parvenu a s'en debarrasser ! Tout d'abord il a fait rendiv line loi par le eonirivs i|iii autorise 
le douanier a termer sans facon 1'entree du pays a (|iiiconi|Ue y arrive pour travailler 
apres avoir ete embaucbe aillenrs. 1 Knsuite, sous pivtexte de philantropie et de L-OII- 
fraternite, il a reussi a jetej adroitement le filet de ses associations sur le Canada, et a forcer 
I'ouvrier canadien ainsi embrigade a subir ses decisions et a refuser d'aller lui t'aire concur- 
rence chez lui. 

L'etude serieuse des choses nous a eonvaincu ijue ces relations internationalcs des 
societes americaines n'ont guere abouti a aineliorer la condition du salurii' canadien. Klles 
ne se seraient pas etablies que la question aurait ete toute aussi avanc.'-e, avec cette difference 
toutetbis que nos soeietes ouvrieres auraient ete nationales an lieu d'etre di']iendantes de 

D'un autre e6t5, les tendances et 1'aetion des associations anit'ricainc>> sont neeessairenient 
le reflet de 1'etat social des Etats-Unis, leipn-1 ditfere essentielleineiit du notre. Sans etre aussi 
malade que la plupart des pays d'Europe, le peuplc ainerieain est loin d'etre saiu de corps et 
d'esprit. Le materialisme 1'envaliit . cliaque jour davantage ; les inillionnaires s'y inultiplient 
rapidement ; le pauperisme s'y developpe dans une egale proportion, et les crises industrielles 
aidees des plus monstrueux monopoles semblcnt y t'aire de la grevc 1'etat chroniquc ties 
classes travaillantes. II ne se passe pas de semaine que la presse n'aniioiue des agitations 
ouvrieres les plus graves dansquelque partie de 1'immense territoire. La politique n'einpeebe 
rien ; elle est au contraire, du moins en apparence, du c6te des masses. Entendez-la (k'noncer 
Paccumulation des ricbesses, applaudir tons les tribune qui parleront de la royaute du salaiiv, 
de I'affranchissement du travail et des odieuses tyrannies du capital. Ace torrent materialiste 
qui grossit sans cesse, la religion seule pourrait opposer une digue salutaire : mais, Findifle-

droits et de >> devoirs. 


Kt iral)i-d, qn'est-ce <jue le travail ; qu'est-ee que la propriete? 

I/iine des erreurs les plus repandues detinit le travail eomme etant la somme de temps 
et de labeur donnes par un ouvrier moyennant un salaire eonvenu. D'apres cette notion, un 
travailleur est <-elui-la seulement qui, avee ou sans apprentissage, appartient a quelqu'un des 
divers i-orps de metiers, dont les plus en vue dans lea villes, sont ceux des menuiaiers, ehar- 
pentiera, macon*, taillenrs de pierre, cordonniera, typographes, peintrea, etc., auxquela il con- 
vient dejoindre les employes des manufactures. Sans doute, toua cea individus appartiennent 
a la grande annee du travail : mais il- ne sont pas les seula, et s'il y en a d'autres, pourquoi 
It* ex el u re ? 

Le chef d'atelier est un ouvrier; 1'entrepreneur est le plua aouvent un ancien ouvrier; le 
cultivuteur qui engage des journaliera pour 1'aider dana ses travaux eat auaai un ouvrier; le 
commit! cat un travailleur; pareillement le marcliand, 1'architecte, 1'arpenteur et le marin. 


Klargissons la sphere : qui oserait refuser de compter comme ouvriers ou travailleurs le fonc- 
tionnaire public, le militaire, 1'homme de profession, le juge, le pretre? Que le salaire Hoit 
paye a la journee ou a la piece, qu'il prenne le nom d'honoraire ou de traitement, il n'en 
reste pas moins analogue a celui que le macon retire une fois sa journee finie. La difference 
entre tous ces hoinmes consiste le plus souvent dans 1'habit, et generalement dans une 
remuneration qui s'eleve par degre"s a mesure que le travail physique exige tin plus grand 
effort de 1'intelligence. C'est la hierarchic sociale qui s'etablit en ccrclcs conccntriques ct ijiii 
oftre le spectacle de 1'unite dans la diversite. 

II n'est done pas vrai de dire que le travail soit simplement ct uniqucmcnt le louage dc 
son labeurque fait 1'ouvrierou lejournalier pour enrichir celui qui I'cinploie. Cette definition 
est imparfaite parce qu'elle ne vise qu'une espece de travail, elle est t'atisse paive qu'elle 
erige en regie generate une exception on une condition incidente, elle est inexacte pan-e 
qu'elle meYonnait la realite des choses. C'est au inoyen de cette insidieuse definition que le 
socialisme arrive a partager en deux classes toute la societe htimaine, d'un cote I'nuvrier, de 
1'autre le capitalists, qu'il preche la croisade du travail contre le capital, ct s'attaqtic a la 

Qu'est-ce que le travail ? 

Le travail estlemoyen universe! employe par 1'homme pour subveniraux besoins dc sa vie. 

Personne n'echappe a cette ordonnance supreme ; il n'y a de difference (pie dans lYspecc. 
Tel pourvoiera a son entretien par la chasse, tel autre par la pcche, celui-ci par lYlcvaife des 
troupeaux, celui-la par la culture des champs, d'autivs par le louagc de leur temps ct dc leur 
labeur : Facio lit des ; do ut fades. 

C'est aussi par le travail que gagncnt leur vie le commis, lYmploye, le negociant. riiomme 
de bureau, le soldat, 1'ecrivain, I'.artiste, le savant et le ministrc de la religion. Qifun liuimuc 
volontairement s'abstienne dc travaillcr, et il se condamne a souff'rir la peiue terrible portiY 
par la loi inexorable du travail ; il mourra de faim. 

Les economistes distinguent outre le travail qui est productifet le travail qui ne Test 
pas: cette distinction nous parait vaine. Tout travail produit tin n'sultat, parce ipic la 
matiere maniee par 1'homme subit sous son effort une transformation quelconqiic. II est 
possible que le resultat soit plus ou moins f'ructueux, et que sa valetir differe ; mais si t'aible 
que soit 1'eftbrt de 1'homme agissant sur la matiere inerte qtii Itii a etc soumise par Ic (Yea- 
teur, cet effort ne peut pas etre improductif. 

La richesse publique, sur laquelle les economistes out ecrit taut de volumes, n'est pas 
autre chose que 1'abondance avec laquelle 1'homme satistait aux besoins de sa vie physique 
et immaterielle. Le surplus constituc la richesse; ce qui nous permet dc dire dans un certain 
sens avec Adam Smith que plus considerable est le travail plus grande est la richesse. Le 
travail ne commence a la produire qu'au moment ou pouvant s'arreter il continue son activite, 
aiguillonne par le desir sans cesse renaissant de faire mieux, de faire plus grand, de faire en 
plus grande quantite, de faire plus beau, de se rapprocher de plus pres du type ideal resplen- 
dissant dans I'&me humaine. 

De la, deux especes de richesse publique, 1'une toute materielle, 1'autre toute morale et 

Le travail doune naissance a la propriete ; il en est la source, la sanction et la recom- 
pense. Aussi, la propriete est-elle un droit nature!. 

L'homme, en operant sur la matiere se 1'incorpore pour ainsi dire ; il lui communique 


une forme qui vient tie lui-meme ; il 1'anime de son labeur et la transforme a son usage ; il se 
1'assimile. L'homme donne son nom a sa propriete", c'est-a-dire a la matiere brute ou animee 
qui a t'te toucbee, modifiee ou transtbrmee par son travail. Et si un jour il re9ut de Dieu 
1'ordro de donner par son travail un nom a toutes les creatures, il ne les appela pas de son 
nom a lui, mais il les qualitia suivant lours aptitudes, rendant ainsi hommage au PropritStaire 
Createur de toutes choses visibles et invisibles. 

II v a deux espeees de proprie'te', celle qui reside dans le fruit du travail destined a la 
satisfaction immediate des besoins de la vie ile I'hoinme, tels que la nourriture, 1'abri, le 
vctemcnt et les oiitils ile son travail : c'est la propriete naturelle. L'autre espece consiste 
dans riii-cumulation des moyeiis employes par rhominu pour subvenir aux besoins de sa vie. 
('Y~t << genre de propriete i|ii'on appcllc comniunement le capital. Toutes deux sont <$gale-

dependant, le travail ne Be borne pas ;\ donner naissance a la propri4t4, il produit encore 
le salaire i|tii est son equivalent. 

IA- travailleur, dit le socialisme, a le droit, aprfes avoir regu le prix de son labeur, 
d'exiger de partager avec celui qui 1'emploie les benefices retires de son travail. N4anmoins, 
vninnie ee partagc pourrait susciter beaueoup de difficult^ dans la pratique, 1'ouvrier, a titre 
de compensation, se eontente de reclamer une diminution des heures de sa journ^e, une 
augmentation de salaire et 1'abolition de la concurrence. 

CY^t sur 1'existence de ce pretendu droit que s'appuient aujourd'hui tous ceux qui, 
exagerant k dessein les profits du capitaliste, s'adressent a 1'Etat pour lui demander son 
intervention toute-puissante et d'amelliorer la condition d'une classe aux de"pens des autres. 


II serait assez facile de prouver par des statistiques que le bien-etre du travailleur subit 
generalement le contre-coup du developpement et de 1'activite du capital ; cette demons- 
tration serait inutile en ce moment. Qu'il suffise d'aflirmer ce que pcrsonne ne pent nier, a 
savoir que le salaire est en general le double de ce qu'il etait il y a trente ans. L'ouvrier, 
mieux paytS, se donne plus de jouissances qu'autrefois sans travailler davantage, et sa 
situation mate'rielle et intellectuelle a progressed d'une maniere sensible. Xoiis atHrnions en 
meme temps que ce resultat est du au jeu des interetsdu patron et de ('employe, a lYlastieitc 
des besoins et de leur satisfaction, ad'exercice legitime et opportun d'une prcssion raisonnable 
sur le capitaliste par 1'asssociation des travailleurs: nous ret'usons absolunient d'y apercevoir 
la moindre consequence d'un droit. 

Qu'est-ce en effet que le salaire; quelles sont les lois qui president a sa fixation : et si le 
salaire donne naissance ;\ quelque droit, quel est ce droit 'i 

Le salaire est la retribution du travail loue librement par le travailleur a eelui <|iii en a 
besoin. C'est done un contrat commutatif en vertu duqiiel cba(|iie partie reroit lYquivalent 
de ce qu'elle donne: or, le salaire etant 1'un de ces equivalents, il sYnsuit que le maitre est 
quitte en justice ot en droit des lors (pi'il 1'a paye. Le salarie, de son cote, n'a plus rien 
a reclamer ; le contrat prend fin par 1'acquittement des obligations reciprocpies des deux 
parties. Le seul droit que possede le salarie, une t'ois son labeur tini. cYst d'exiger son salaire. 
seul fruit pour lui et seule cause determinante de sa convention. 

ReconnaTtre un droit ultorieur provenant de ce contrat a 1'insii des parties serait done 
changer les termes d'egalite dc la convention, et attribucr a I'une des ]iarties une part d<- 
propriete dans un accroissement de richesse qui ne lui appartient a aucun litre. /i'i> r/v.vr// 
domino. Pour retablir la justice il faudrait que le travailleur tut egalement teiiu respon- 
sable des pertes que pourrait essuyer le maitre dans Sexploitation : inais alors le contrat 
changerait de nature, et au lieu du contrat de louage on aurait le contrat de s< M -icte. 
Or, ni le maitre ni 1'ouvrier n'ont 1'intention de former une societe lorsque 1'un des deux 
loue son salaire a 1'autre et lorsque celui-ci y consent ; tons deux contractent librement. et 
aucune autorite n'a le droit d'intervenir, exeepte* pour faire respecter la justice (jui pourrait 
etre violee. Si deux individus, usant de leur droit naturel pour former une convention. 
etaient exposes a. voir le gouvernement meconnattre leur volonte expresse et s'interposer 
pour en fixer la nature, on serait la justice, ou serait la libertc liumaine, ou serait la societe 
elle-meme ? 

Personne n'ignore que le desir, chez le salarie, de tirer tout le profit possible de son tra- 
vail, 1'a porte a. se syndiquer, ce qui a donne naissance aux societes co-operatives ; nous 
savons egalement que souvent un patron s'associera partiellement son engage afin de Pinte- 
resser davantage au succes de son entreprise : rien de plus legitime ni de plus raisonnable. 
Chacun dans ces difterents cas donne au travail une signification acceptee des deux parties 
contractantes, et Pinteret particulier sert de motif a Pacquiescement mutuel. 

Le socialisme ignore sciemment et volontairement 1'intention qu'ont cue le maitre et 
Pengage ; il nie a chacun le droit de rechercher son interet propre, parce qu'il nie le droit de 
propriety source de cet interet. C'est pourquoi, foulant aux pieds la liberte de Pindividu, il 
s'adresse a PEtat pour faire imposer de force la reconnaissances et les obligations de ses 
monstrueuses maximes. 

Dans la conception politique de Pe"conomie socialiste, le gouvernement est investi de 
tous les droits possibles, droit religieux, droit de la famille, droit de propriete, droit d'asso- 


oiation. (Test un organisme doiie* d'une vie et d'une fin particulieres, dans lequel les 
oitovons disparaissent pour t'uire place a de simples unites individuelles qui naissont, agissent 
et meiiront suivant ce qu'il en a dtk-ide". Est-il besoin de faire ressortir tout ce qu'a d'avilis-

" procurer les moyens n5cessaires a eette fin par le prix ou le produit qu'il retire de son tra- 
' vail. Quelle est la consequence de ces deux propositions, c'est que le salaire ne doit pas v'tre 
" intuffitani ,\ faire virre Fouvrier sobre et honntte. Que si, contraint par la ndcessit^ ou pouss4 
" par la erainte d'un mal plus grand, il accepte des conditions dures qui lui sont imposeea 
" par celui qui fait 1'offre du travail, il subit alors une violence centre laquelle proteate la

Pre*tendre que le salaire du travailleur doit otre subordonne a wen besoms et tion a son 
travail, defini comme nous 1'avons fait, est une erreur soutenue par certains chefs socialistes. 
Kilo ne resiste pas aun6 discussion taut soit pen serieuse ; elle rosnlte d'uneetrange contusion 
de la justice et de la charite. En ett'et, la justice est satisfaite lorsque sont accomplies les con- 
ditions du contrat du louage du travail ; ce n'est qu'alors, et alors settlement que la diarit/- 
pent et doit s'exercer. 

" Que la charite, suivant le langage de 1'illustre M" Kreppel, victim- aehever IV-nvre 
" de la justice, qu'elle ticnne compte des besoins de 1'ouvTicr pour mettre a son service Ics 
" ressources dont elle dispose, e'est un devoir qni, a 1'oecasion, pent devenir tout aussi impe- 
" rieux qu'un devoir de justice." 

C'est & la eharite que nous devons tons les hospices, asilcs, hopitaux, creches, insti tut ions 
d'aveugles et de sourds-muets qui se rencontrent dans Ics grandcs villcs dc la pmviiirc dc 
Quebec. C'est pour 1'ouvrier, e' est pour le pauvro, c'cst pour la vicillcssc, r'cst ]mur tunics 
les inlirmites dont la pauvre liumanite est affligee et <[ui sc rcm-untrciit surtuut <lans Ics 
classes travaillantes, que ces refuges out etc fondes, (pi'ils sun) cntfctcniis ct ((ii'ils prus- 

Cependant, gardons-nons bien d'oublier qnc si la charite est un devoir, die ne eivc JKIS 
cependant chez le pauvre un droit correlatif; et que si !e salaire est insutHsaut a garantir le 
travailleur contre la maladie, les accidents et les dioinages des niortes-saisuns, cctlc sitiiiition 
ne lui donne aucuu droit contre le matt re qui lone son travail. Kile ei-i'e senlenient pour ] 
patron et pour le riche le devoir de venir an secours de lenrs t'rcres dans le nialheiir. devoir 
que la religion se charge de faire remplir par sun admirable conception de la charite. 

D'ailleurs, quelle ne serait pas la difficult/- de fixer le salaire suivant les hesoins de 
chacun ! Qui se chargerait de determiner ees besoins (jni varicnt suivant rage, suivant qne 
le travailleur est marie on non, suivant le nombre des entants, suivant le cours des lovers, le 
cout de la vie, de Phabillement, des taxes ;\ payer, et millc autres accidents de lieu uu de 
condition? Est-ce qu'il n'arrive pas quelquefois ([lie le travail d'un ouvrier expert ct indus- 
trieux est plus profitable ;\ un patron que celui d'un autre dont les hesoins scront cepen- 
dant beaucoup plus considerables que eeux du premier? Ou serait la justice si ces deux 
ouvriers etaient salaries suivant leurs besoins et non pas suivant la somme et la qualite de 
1'ouvrage fait ? 

La valeur du travail s'apprecie d'apres les cireonstances, sous 1'influence de 1'ofFre et de 
la demande. L'habilete individuelle du travailleur, 1'epoque du travail, la nature de 1'ouvrage 
sont autant d'elements qui concourent h. en fixer le prix. Ce prix varie suivant les metiers 
ou les industries. Si done tant de conditions diverses entrent dans sa fixation, comment une 
legislature pourrait-elle entreprendre de remplacer cette elasticite naturelle des cireonstances 
par Pinflexible rigidite de ses dispositions statutaires? Xon, 1'Etat, c'est-a-dirc 1' ensemble 
des pouvoirs publics, ne saurait sans injustice intervenir pour determiner lui-meme en matiere 
privee les termes de n'importe quelle convention expresse ou tacite. Vous lui demandez 
aujourd'hui de fixer un minimum de salaire ; qui vous cmpechera demain de le sommer 
d'avoir i regler de la meme maniere le prix du pain, le prix du the, le prix des meubles, le 
prix du loyer, en un mot le prix de toutes les necessites de la vie ? 

Loin de nous la pensee que le travailleur n'a pas, comme tout autre membredela societe, 
le droit de s'attendre a la protection de la legislature de son pays. Cette protection lui est 
meme due tout particulierement & cause de son humble condition et de sa faiblesse. Mais

Le ineine raisonneinent s'ap]ili(jue a la question de la reduction des heures de travail. 


Kn Canada cette joiirnee est generalenient de dix heures. La boutique, 1'atelier, la 
fabriqae ouvreiit leurs portes a la fourmilliere des travailleurs a sept heures du matin ; sus- 
l-n-i--ii du travail pour diner de midi ;\ une heure ; 4 six heures, 1'ouvragc cesse et 1'ouvrier 
rentre che/. lui. Dans leu bureaux et les magasins, la journee de travail est en general de 
huit heures. lxt< employes publics et lea commis de banque ne sont tenus qu'a un travail 
quotidian de ept heures, sauf le saniedi ou il n'est (jue de quatre heures seulement. Les 
pretreH, Iwjoornalutes, le ministrc d'Etat et le magistral sont souveut occupes jour et unit, 
A la eaiupagiir. le 1 1 avail dun champs est plus exigeant, et la journee se compte souvent d'une 
toil,. ;, 1'antrv. 




Endoctrine's par les socialistes americains ou Strangers, quelques zele"s parlent de 
s'adresser aux legislatures pour faire fixer un maximum de la joumee ouvriere. En Angle- 
terre, le parti soeialiste demande en outre que la loi oblige le patron ou 1'entrepreueur a 
payer le meme salaire qu'auparavant, c'est-a-dire a payer pour une journee de huit heures le 
meme prix qu'il donnait pour un travail de dix lieu res. 

II semble que 1'enonciation d'une telle proposition suffit pour en montrer toute la de 
son et 1'impossibilite pratique. Qu'un ouvrier robuste, industrieux, habile stipule avec 
patron qu'il lui donnera uu travail regulier tie dix et meme de onze heures pourvu que le 
salaire soit convenable, ou est le mill ? En vertu de quel droit voudrie/.-vous empecher 
1'homme libre d'exercer son activite dans les limites justes et raisonnables? An nom de 
quel principe la loi pourrait-elle intervenir? Si, an contraire, un truvuillant t'ail.le, lache, 
mediocre, trouve la journee de dix heures trop longue pour sa capacite, serait-il juste que 
son collegue plus fort et plus capable doive en souffrir? 

D'un autre cflte, le patron dans ses entreprises, rindustriel dans sa tabrique, si- guide 
ordinairement pour fixer le salaire d'apres la marge de profits que le emit de son outilla-je et 
de la matiere premiere lui fait esperor sur la rente on sou contrat. Suppose/, crn'mie loi suit 
portee ayant pour objet de regler le maximum de la joumee de travail a hint heures, qu'arri- 
vera-t-il? De deux choses I'uno ; ou 1'usine, la lioutiqiie et leehantier diminuernnt les salaires 
dans une mesure eorrespondante, ou ils suspendront tout travail. Or, si I'oiivrier dans les 
villes suffit a se procurer les moyens de vivre et d'elever sa tamille aver un salaire, disons, 
de deux piastres et demie par jour, comment pourra-t-il se tirer d'attaire avec ciii([iiante rents 
de moins, soit une reduction de trois piastres sur le salaire de la semaine? (pliant an patron 
ou & rindustriel pour qui le temps est geiieralemeut un eleim-nt tres ini[iortaiit ilans la livrai- 
son ou 1' expedition de 1'article t'abrique ou di^ 1'ouvrage enti'e^n-is, cette diminution obliifatnire 
de la journee de travail le ruiuera du eou[>, ou entravera d'une maniere tres grave ses op.'ra- 
tions futures. D'ailleurs, ces mesures de socialisme legal peuvent. jusqu'a un certain point, 
avoir une application plus ou moins t'uneste dans les pays temperes : eomnient eoiirir le risque 
enorme de les essayeren Canada ou les hivers imposeiit ;\ 1'ouvrier des ehomai^esde plusieiirs 
mois, et ou la saison de travail en plein air est si courte'.' 

Dans tons les cas, autant il est injuste et dangereux d'autoriser I'Etat a eiitruprendre 
d'aineliorer soi-disant la condition du salarie en fixant le maximum de ht journee ouvriere 
a huit heures, autant il est legitime et a propos d'abandonner la solution de la question an 
patron et a I'eugage. L'un et 1'autre y sont egalement quoique difteremmcnt interesses. 


Cependant, investir brutalement la legislature du droit d'ingerence dans le contrat de 
louage du travail ne suffit pas encore a la theorie soeialiste ; elle se revolte en outre contre la 
loi de 1'offre et de la demande et en reclame ['abolition. Cette loi, dit-elle, cree la concurrence 
entre patrons, entre industriels, entre maitres, entre ouvriers, enleve a la matiere produite 
son prix normal, et determine une fluctuation incessante dans les prix de vente et dans 
ceux du travail. Done, la concurrence est 1'ennemie du salarie : done il faut Pabolir. 

Si cette loi e"tait, en effet, 1'ceuvre d'une legislature quelconque, son abrogation serait 
peut-etre chose relativement aisee. Mais cette loi est comme celle de la gravite decouverte 
par Newton ; elle n'est rien autre chose que Pexpression d'un fait e"conomique universel, 
constant, irresistible qui de tout temps a regi les rapports d'utilite des homines eutre eux. 


L'oftre eat le desir exprime' par un individu de se procurer une certaine chose en 
1'eehangeant con t re une autre d'espece difterente qu'il possede; la demande est le d&sir 
exprime par tin individu de coder une chose qu'il possede en Pe'changeant contre une 
an t re d'cspoce difterente. Cette definition peut se returner en deux mots : j'offre ; je dcmande. 
D'oii la regie suivante : la valour d'un article d'utilit^ est en raison inverse de 1'ofFre et en 
rai-on directe de la demande. 

Korecr et ohtenir la commando par le IMS prix extreme et la qualite" de ses produits, tel

Ce n'e-t pa> tout : <'e n'e-t |>as eneoi'e asse/. Avee le devclopponieiit immense qu'a pris 
rimlii-trie dans le nionde entier, la concurrence, toiijours insatiable, a pris dee proportions 
ill- plus en [ilus gigaiitesques ; die a imagine 1'assoeiation dsins un jiieme pays de toutes les 
industries similairi's. Comliinant ensemble un systeme nnii'urme de productions et de ventc, 
ees a.-.MM-iatioii> scint deveinies inait resses absnlues du marclie ; dies out realise la formule 
?-iipri"nie: red inn- a un seiil 1'ort're, oliliger tons a la domando. Tels sont les combines de 
notre tcmp!>. inunstrueuses conceptions dans lesquelles le travail bumain est impitoyablement 
avili, mal traite et mal pay', que ce travail serve a tournir la matiere premiere ou qu'il soit 
employe a la eonvertir en article de vente. 

Dans do telles conditions, la concurrence disparatt, la concurrence n'existe plus. Nous 
n'en apercevons que 1'alms dans des monopoles dont 1'Etat est oblige* de s'occuper, afin de 
prot : ger U- droit du t'aible et faire respecter la justice. Get abus est contre nature, et ce n'est 
pa etre soeialiste que <le demander aux parlements d'intervenir. Mais c'est 1'etre fonciere- 
ment que de vouloir faire decreter par 1'Etat cette chose absurde et irr^alisable, a savoir que 
tout homme oft'rant ou demandant une commodite" sera puni, et que tout individu offrant ou 
demandant du travail sera poursuivi judiciairement. 

II n'y a pas a se le caclier, 1'unique objet dusocialisme dans tout ceci est d'empecher 1'ou- 
vrier d'entrer lui-meme en concurrence avec ses semblables. De cette maniere, disent les 
adeptes, nous Atona tout pretexte an maitre, au patron, a 1'entrepreneur de toucher au salaire, 
et nooa aaaurons la situation du travailleur. 

Personne ne doute un instant que 1'employ^ ue prendrait pas tous les moyens de 


faire augmenter ses gages s'il n'cn e"tait pas empeche par la concurrence qui le guette avec la 
vigilance la plus implacable. II sait qu'a la porte de 1'atelier, de 1'usine on du chantier se 
tiennent d'autres ouvriers qui n'attendent qu'un signe du patron ou du bourgeois pour venir 
prendre sa place, et cette frayeur le rend sage. Que cette surabondance d'oft're de travail 
cesse, et sur-le-champ le salaire s'eleve, grossit, commando jusqu'a ce que rindustriel pressure 
et e'puise ferme ses portes et eteigne ses t'eux plutot que de se ruiner. C'est 1'histoire de la 
poule qui pondait des csufs d'or. 

Et puis, quo devient avec ce systeme de cahne plat absolu, universal, la situation du tra- 
vailleur sans ouvrage? II dcvra se resigner a mourir de faini ; et alors on se demande ou est 
la justice dans un systeme qui forcerait le nnutre ;\ garder a son emploi un oiivrier inhal)ile, 
paresseux, sans initiative, quand son interet lui coinmande de le rcinplacer par un aiitre plus 
actif, plus adroit, plus devoue? 

Cette proposition socialiste est done t'ausse, inhumaine, tyranniquc, et d'ailleurs alisolu- 
ment impraticable. Elle detruit la liherte et Finitiative, res deux principes du veritable 
progres materiel. 

Ainsi done, impuissaut a conccvoir la veritable organisation du travail, de la propriete, 
de la richesse et de la concurrence, le socialisnic, nous venous de le voir. reste egalement sans 
id4e pratique quand il entreprend d'ameliorer la condition du travailleur. Impossible d'cn 
arriver a une autre conclusion. Cle n'est pas en seniant ladettanee et la hame eiitre les classes 
de la societe ([ii'on peut faire plus ln'iireuse la vie ilu salarii' ou augmenter sun hien-eire. 
Le secret ce n'est pas le soeialisme cpii le possede ; on le sail bien en Canada. C'est vers la 
doctrine cbretienne qu'il taut tourner les regards : e'est la settlement i|iiese troiive la vi'ritalile

IV. Le baron de Lnhonlan 


(l,u le 25 mai 1893) 


Louis-Annand do LOTH d'Arce, mieux connn suns le nom de baron de Lahontan. est 1111 
otticier fran^ais qui a servi uu Canada de lt>8;$ a 1(!!>3. Qnclqnes annees aprcs son rctoiir en 
Europe (1703), il publia un do sc-s voyages qui tit hcaucoup de limit duns le temps. On 
peutjuger de la vogue qu'eut cut ouvragc, puisqu'il en t'ut donne plus dc doiix.c editions t'ran- 
9aises en rnoins d'uu demi-siecle (1703 a 1741), sans comptcr qu'il tut traduit en anglais, en 
hollandais, en allemand, ot quo les grands recueils de voyages compiles en France mi en 
Angleterre en contiennent de volumineiix extraits. 

Ecrit en un style un pen dnr mais portant Failure liadine et egrillarde. rmivraife de 
Lahontan penetra dans des couches ou n'avaient ]ui se rendre des livres un pen mystiijiics. 
comme leu relations des missionnaires, on des in-folios comme cenx de Oharlevoix. CY-tait la 
premiere tbis qu'un voyageur sortait dc la voie commune, ahordait la discussion de toiites 
ehoses et marchait sans lisiere. Les chercheurs, les gens si'rieux avaient In I)ncreux. I^escar- 
bot ou Champlain. Lahontan s'adressa an pulilic leger et moqnoiir du commencement du 
xvin" siecle. Quelques-uns, comme Parkman, jngent meme iju'il devanca les pamjilili'taires 
de ce temps. Lahontan t'ut hi et contrihua peut-etre pins (|iie liien des autenrs graves et 
savants a f'aire connaitre le Canada. Dans le oours de son ouvrage, il regne nne pointe de 
malice, un air t'rondeur, un ton de persiflage qui dnrent jilaire a l'e]ioque. 

Lahontan, qui fut jiendant dix ans un militaire mediocre, qui passa obscur an Canada, 
conquit tout i coup par sa plume une renommee pt>ur ainsi dire europeenne. Les princes de 
Hanovre lui donnerent leur t'aveur, et il vecnt dans 1'intimite du grand Leilmitz. C'est ainsi 
qu'un pauvre cadet de Gascogne, qui n'avait que la cape et 1'epee, (jui avait maiupie sii vie a 
vingt-sept ans, qui' se croyait un homme perdu et ruine apres avoir deserte le drapeau et t'ui 
sa patrie, s'acquit la reputation d'un grand voyageur. Le hasard a voulu <|iie ceux qui oi'cu- 
paient alors les premiers emplois, ou qui gagnerent a la France par leurs immortels travaux 
plus des trois-quarts du continent americain, fusseut pendant un temps ignores ou engloutis 
dans le plus miserable oubli, et qu'un officier du plus maigre merite se couvrit de leur inan- 
teau glorieux. 

L'importance que Ton a donnee pendant tout le xvnr si^cle a 1'ouvrage de Lahontan, 
celle que lui donnent encore certains ecrivains contemporains en le citant de temps & autre, 
Justine cette etude. II importe que Ton connaisse plus intimement un homme qui a porte" des 
jugements tres severes sur nos origines, qui a popularise en Europe 1'idee que les colonies 
franqaises furent des lieux de deportation, et qui, d'un coaur leger,. a voulu infliger un 
stigmate honteux a toute une race. 

II y a peu d'ecrivains qui ait eu une carriere aussi accidentee que le baron de Lahontan. Son 
histoire ressemble i un veritable roman. Parti du Beam a 1'age de dix-sept ans pour venir an 
Canada comme simple volontaire dans les troupes de la marine, il habite tour a tour Quebec, 


Montreal, le detroit, Michillimakinae. II assist*- ;\ deux campagnes sans trouver a s'y illnstivr. 
Commandant de garnison, il abandonne l&chement son poste pour He faire voyageur iso!6 dans 
les regions lointaines du Minnesota. Commensal du gouvenieur Frontenac, on le retrouvc 
lieutenant de roi dans les brumes de Terreneuve, d'ou il s'enfuit sur unc miserable barque de 
pechcur qui le jette sur les cotes du Portugal. Refugic en Hollands, il tk-rit, eontre sa patrie 
-t cciix ile sa rare, des pamplilets reni]>lis de h'el, se donue liypocriternent la gloire de deeoii- 
vertes imaginaires, devient Kami des princes et rangers et. d'un savant comnie Leibnitz, qui le 
prcnd pour tin lioiunie serienx.

le gracieuses ondidations font contraste avec le plat pays des Landes et les escarpements 
al-rupt- de< in.- nt- pyreneens, dort le paisible village de Lahontan avec Ba population de 1,200 

La commune de Lahontan a eu jadis ses jours de splendeur, et scs habitants aiment a en 
le souvenir. 


Au xni* sifecle, un paysan y d^uouvrait au milieu d'une solitude couverte de ronces et 
de broussailles une statue en hois de la Vierge Marie. En ces temps de fervour et de foi 
vivace, une pareille trouvaille fut eonsideree comme miracle, et la statue devint bientdt I'objet 
d'une grande veneration dans toute la contree. Elle fut invoquee sous le nom de Notre-Damc 
d'Abet, et on e"leva ensonhonneur un magnitique sanvtuaire. Les muines d'un abbaye voisin, 
les benedictins de Sordes, en eurent la garde pieuse. 

Des frontieres d'Espagne, des pays basques, des rives de 1'oeean, et des landes sterilcs 
accouraient de nomhreux pMerins. La legende et la tradition locale disent quTrbain IF, le 
pape des Croisades, Saint-Bernard, d'illustres templiers, le pape Clement V, sc plurent a 
venir gainer la vierge miraculeuse dans ces lieux benis. 

M Kt Charles-Anguste Lecjuien de la Neuville, dernier t'vcque de l>ax, dioei'-se d'ou 
Labontan dependait alors, contirma de son autorite, a la tin dn xvin" sieele. le n'eit des 
merveilles qui s'operaient an sanctuaire de Xotre-Dame d'Abet. Cet antique pMeriiiar<- suli- 
siste encore, mais 1'eglise qui abrita si longtcmps la statue veiien'e est toute en mines. Ses 
murailles decrepites, noircies par le temps, sY-levent commc une sentinelle perdue aux bords 
du gave de Pan. Dcpuis quelques annecs, des Ames pit-uses et cbaritabU-s travaillent a la 
restaurcr. ' 

A droite et ;\ gaucbe du vieiix sanctuaire, gisent d'anciennes t'ondations d'une iri'cisseur 

demesuree et d'une solidite a toute e[)reuve. On emit y voir les restcs de c(Hi>tmi-ti(in> n- 

mencees sous la domination romaine, mais les traditions sont obscures, et les Validities out 
aneanti toutes traces liistori<nies de ces temps n-cules. 

Situe sur les coniins du Beam et dc- l';uicienne (iuyenne. Labontan dut pendant plus de 
deux sifccles et demi subir lejoug anglais. La ebroniijue rapporte qiu- li-s Mt'arnais et les I'.as- 
ques, voulant reconquerir la liberte de leur patrie. trouverent plus d'une t'ois rt-tuge derrit-n- 
les epaisses murailles de Xotre-Dame d'Abet. 

Un des anciens seigneurs de Labontan, le baron de Ce-s-Caupenne, qui appartenait a une 
maison illustre de la Cbalosse, etait tres attacbe a la tamille royale d'Angleterre. On dit 
meme qu'il lui pretait de 1'argent. Mais les vassaiix de i'e banquier de bant ton lui prou- 
verent (pi'ils ne gontaient guere ses sentiments britanniques. - 

Montaigne partagea avec Caupenne 1'lionneur d'avoir les Lubontanais pour vassaiix. 
L'illustre ecrivain prit la peine d'en rappeler le souvenir dans une page 1'ort originale de ses 

1 Notice fur IK PMerinagc dc Notre- Dame d'Abet, d J-alxmtan, dinette de Hai/onm: 

'' Les chroniqueurs rapportent quo vers la fete de la Purification, en 1254, Gaston de I'.earn eut la hanliesse de 
vouloir g'introduire a Bayonne, mais qne, repousse par los Anglais, il vint chercher un refuse sous les murs d'Abet. 

Le 6 avril 1299, Edouard 1", roi d'Angleterre, ('crivait au niaire de ISayonne pour leprier ile faire conduin- a la 
tour de Londres Jean Deville, son fils Pierre-Olivier Deville, Jean de Sancerre, Jean Odoual, Michel Arbide et 
Aim6 de Cantines, seigneur de Saint-Paul. Us avaient pris une part active a la conspiration qui avail pour but 
de delivrer Bayonne de la puissance anglaise. Mais ces courageux conspirateurs, qui voulaient reconqui'rir la 
libert^ de leur patrie, vinrent chercher un refuge dans 1'abbaye d'Abet 

On dit que sur 1'ancienne cloche de 1'eglise d'Abet, on lisait, en caracteres gotliiques, cette inscription eu latin . 
Le roi Edouard 1", tainte Marie, priez pour nom Jeeus de Nazareth. 

En 1569, le protestant Montgomery, fleau des eglises et des lieux saints, se jeta sur IVglise d'Abet et le bonrg 
de Lahontan. Le combat fut acharne, mais les Lahontanais, qui tous avaient pris les armes, sortirent vainqueure, 
et se rrudirent a 1'eghse d'Abet pour remercier Dieu et y deposer les " bant-res de rouge sandal " prises & 1'ennemi 
et qui signifiaient : Mori sans remede et mortelle guerre en tous lieux. 

Un membre de la famille des barons de Caupenne, Garcias Amand de Caupenne, fut eveqiie de Dax

Le deuxieme baron <le Lahontan tut Isaac de Lom d'Arce. 

Isaac de Lom d'Arce appartemiit k une famille bien coniiue du Beam. II etait apparente 
par les dc Braigelonne h. la fameuse maison d'Artagnan qui a joue un si grand riMe pendant 
les troubles religieux de la France. ' Les Lom etaient uux-memes seigneurs de Laba.stide. 
Apres avoir servi avec distinction dans les armees du roi en qualite d'ingenieur, Loin 
d'Arce avait d'abord acquis la terre d'Esleicb, situee en face de la baronnie dc Lahontan, sur 
la rive droite du gave de Pan. II rendit alors aux populations du midi dc la France des ser- 
vices considerables en umcliorant la navigation des gaves pvreneeiis. 

Le gave de Pan, nourri des glaciers et des neiges eternelles des pics qui separent la 
France de 1'Espagne, passe a Lahontan. 11 a roule jusquc la comme un torrent, inais en tra- 
versant cette plaine heureuse, il calme sos ondes ecumantes, pour pivndrc les allures plus 
paisibles d'une honnete riviere, jusqu'a ce qu'il se jette au golt'c de (Jascognc. Tel il est 
aujourd'hui, mais au temps on vivait Lom d'Arce, il etait impossible d'en exploiter le 
cours. Trois siecles auparavant, Edouard II, roi d'Angleterre, pris d'uu beau /.Me pour ses 
sujets de Beam, voulant faciliter la navigation et le flottagc, avait ordonm' renlevcincnt des 
sables de 1'Adour, ainsi que celui de quelques obstacles sur legave de 1'au. II prit dans son 
ordonnance pour point de depart 1'abbaye d'Abct. 

Lom d'Arce voulut renouveller des travanx du menie genre, mais plus en grand. II 
ne desirait rien moins que de rend re le gave navigable depuis Bavomie jusqu'a Pan (ItvJO). 

Pour cela il tallait faire sauter les rochers qui obstruaient la navigation, aplunir les 
rapidcs, detourner le cours de centaines de ruisseaux qui pourraient gror-sir les gaves d'. \dour 
et d'Oleron, affluents du Pan, crcuser et elargir des rivieres. 

1 Par ses deux branches, les Monthic et les Montesquiou. 

Les ecrivains du Canada et des Etats-Unis ont tollement dt-figun' le noni patronymique du baron <le Lahontan 
que je crois utile d'en rt'tablir la veritable orthojiraphe. Jo dois ces notes aux patientes recherches de M. IHifan de 
Maluquer, 1'auteur de 1" Armorial de Jiearn, et celui qui connait le mieux les aneiennes families des provinces pyrr- 
neennes. II est incontestable que. le nom patronymiqne de la famille du baron de Laliontan rtait '/ Lom, (juoi(|uo 
ce nom soit ecrit tK-s liciblement du Loin dans les arrets du conseil du roi de I'epoque. 11 existe encore i Nay, une 
famille de Lom, et dans les environs de Lembeye une fainile de Lom-Sorbo. Mais il n'y a pas en Beam do locality 
du nom d'Arce. On ne trouve dans le Diclionnaire den Pastes qu'un village de ce nom, eitut- dans la commune de 
Vendensies, dans 1'Aube. Laliontan est un nom de terre et un nom patronymique. II y a en France la commune 
de Lahontan, dans les Bashes-Pyrenees, canton de Salies. II y a anssi la commune de Hontaux (dt'-partement des 

Les mots Lahontan et Lafontan sont absolument synonymes. (Paul Raymond, Dictionnaire topographique de> 
Batset-Pyrhiles, page 90.) II existe &. Pau une famille Lafontan. On ecrivait indiffcreminent autrefois Laltontang 
Lafontan, Lahontan. Ce mot signiflfl un pays de funtainen. 

John Gilmary Shea, dans sa traduction de Charlevoix, Histoire de la Nowelle- France, ecrit: Armand Louis de 
Delondarce de la Hontan, baron de la Ilontan et Herleche. 11 faut lire Lom d'Arce, baron de Lahontan et HOB- 
leche (maintenant Esleich). 

Un mot sur les armes d'Isaac de Lom d'Arce. 

On voit dans sa correspondance avec le corps de ville de Bayonne qu'il s'est servi des sceaux suivanU: 1 ecu 
a la bande cbargee de trois sangliers ou porcs-4pics, timbr^ d'un heaume de profll a lambrequins, surmonte' d'un san- 
glier au nature! (lettre du 12 octobre 1659) ; 2 ecu portant le nom d'Arce en lettres entrelacees, surmont<5 d'un 
tortil de baron (lettre du 12 octobre 1661). 

Lahontan, qui se trouve dans le canton de Salies, fait partie d'une region ou Ton trouve assez commnne'ment 
des sangliers. On organise meme, de temps en temps, des battues, ces animaux faisant beauconp de ravages dans 
la plaine. Rien de surprenant si, a raison de cette particularite, le baron de Laliontan a fait figurer des sangliers 
dans ses armes.

Tn jour (1648) les habitants de Bayonne <5tonn& virent aborder devant leur ville trois 
bateaux, qui vcnaient de plus de 22 lieues dans I'interieur des terres. C'tStait Lorn 
d'Aree qui les envoyait. Cela ne s'etait jamais vu et frappa tout le monde d'e'tonnement. On 
en ecrivit a Paris et les gazettes en parlerent. Les e"chevins de Bayonne assembles donnerent 
aux mariniers qui avaient conduit les bateaux une gratification de 20 livres. 

(V travail gigantesqiie, conronne de succes, et que Ton avait cru jusque-la impossible 
aj.porta a Bayonne 1'abondanee. Son port difficile d'acces, enfoui sous les sables que char- 
rovaient les -raves, en fut grossi a tel point qif un vaisseau de cinquante canons y put entrer 
ave<- plus de facilite que ne le pouvait fa ire auparavant une fregate de dix. On put des lore 
open-r la desccntc des mats et des vcrgues des Pyrenees, par les gaves creuse's par Lorn 


On compivndra encore mieiix rimportance de ces travaux, si Ton songe qu' auparavant, 
les navires du plus faible tonnage echouaient dans le port de Bayonne. 

("est en li;:!0qiic Lorn d'Aree avait commence eette gigantesque entreprise. II prit 
dix-buit ans a la mener a bonne tin. II cut a bitter tout le temps centre 1'opinion et les

Lorsqu'il f'ut nomme,en 1664, conseiller an parlement dePau et re'formateur dii domaine 
des eaux et forets de Beam, Lorn d'Arce dut ne'cessairement abandoiincr la eapitalc pour 
venir exercer ses emplois en province. II possedait deja sur les bords du gave de I'au dont 
il avait dompte le cours la terre seigneuriale d'Esleieh. II ajouta ace domaine la ban.nnie 
de Lahontan, qui etait situ^e en face sur la rive opposee. C'est la quo, devcnu viciix, Loni 
d'Arce voulait terminer ses jours. 

Une serieuse consideration 1'engageait encore a ecbangcr le taste de la cour contrc le 
train d'un gentilhomme campagnard vivant an milieu dc ses vassaiix. 

Tour rend re les gaves de son pays navigables, lc baron avail depcnse des soinm.-* 
enormes. II n'avait pas su eviter 1'ecueil dans leqtiel les grands sentiments jettent soiivent 
des hommes de mediocre fortune, et son avenir et celui ilc sa famille s'en trouvaient serieiise- 
ment engage pour le bien public. 

Du temps dc son premier manage avee Jeanne (iuerin, alors ijii'il etait deja avaitee en 
age et sans posterite, le baron avait fait don a la ville de Mavonne a tit re via. r iT d'une summe 
de 30,000 Hvres. Profitant de cc que Mayonne Ini avait toiijours nuil servi ses inteivN il 
reclama ce constitut, afin de se liberer de ses creaneiers les plus eiinuvcux. et de paver ! 
prix d'achat de Lahontan. Mais le capital de la rente bayonnaise n'avait pa- sufli a eomMer 
le gouffre, et les emprunts ruineux s'etaient sueeedes a courte .'elu'anee. ' 

C'est ainsi que s'ecoula tristement la vieillesse d'un liomme ampiel le Meant avait le- 
plus grandes obligations. 

Le 4 novembre 1674, on ensevelissait dans la eliapelle du cbatcau <le Lalt<mtan, Isaa.' de 
Lorn d'Arce. La mort etait venu le prendre a 1'agc dc> (mat re-vin^ts ans. a temps pmir (tu'il 
ne vit point la mine compile de sa maison.-

utile de recueillir tous les documents qui peuvent s'y appliquer. II est important de connaitre le point d'ou 
Labontan est parti.

La chapelle de la baronnie, distincte de 1'^glise de la paroisse, se nommait "de Sainte-Mapdeleine." Kile for- 
mait partie du chdteaii et servait aux baptemes et aux sepultures des vassaux marquants. C'ette chapelle dovint 
dans la suite "^glise paroissiale," et sur son emplacement on a bati 1'oglise actuelle de Lahontan. (Lottre do M. le 
curt Bacqu6 a 1'auteur.) 

De 1666 a 1674, Lorn d'Arce avait presque continuellement v<jcu sur ses terrep, ainsi que les actes suivanfs 
en font foi : 

" Le 10 juin 1666 a est^ baptist Isaac de Lamaison, fils d'Arnaut de Lamaison, juge, et de damoi?elle [Marie]

Isaac de Lom d'Arce eut encore un enfant nature! qui fut baptise A Lahontan le 25 fevrier 1674.

A peine sorti de I'erifauce, le jeune baron vonlut embrasser la carriere des armes, et sa 
faniille lui obtint line lieutenance au regiment de Bourbon. ' 

La terre natale n'avait plus pour Arinand de Loin d'Arce que d'amers souvenirs. 
Comment lui, pauvre cadet de Gascogne, ne possedant plus que la cape et I'epee, i>uviiit-il 
vivre desormais dans ces licux ou son pore avait tenu un jour le premier rang? Les revers 
1'avaient brutalement assailli a 1'entree de la vie, il lui t'allait chercher ;\ re fa ire une fortune 
nouvelle. Dans 1'espoir d'obtenir un avancement plus rapide, il se tit bientot verser dans U-s 
gardes de la marine. 

Le jeune baron de Lahontan n'etait pas sans avoir entendu parler sun vent de rAnieriqiie. 
Un des allies de sa famille, Claude Bragelonne, surintendant et commissaire general iles 
vivres et des camps et armies de France, avait forme aiitrefois partie de la eompagnic des 
Cent-Associes de la Nouvelle-France. C'est du pays de I'x'arn, de la ville d'< Huron, presqiic 
voisine de la baronnie de Lahontan, que quelques vingt ans auparavant etait parti le baron 
de Saint-Castin. On avait du se raeonter bien souvent a la veillee, comment ce IV-arnai-. qui 
s' etait embarque a ITige de quin/.e ans, simple lieutenant, avait tini par cpouser une prinee.-v-e 
indienne, puis etait devenu eomme le veritable rui de la puissaiitc et belli(|Ueuse nation des 

Plus d'une fois, Isaac de Lorn d'Arce avait du eonduire sun tils a me dans ee port de 
Bayonne agrandi par ses suins. II y avait vu se balancer les barques des bardis pecheurs de 
baleines, il s't3tait rencontre sur les qiiais avec les equi[iatres. retuui 1 des baucs de Terre-N'eiive. 
N'etait-ce point a Bayonne et au ]>ays de Labour qiie les arniatenrs recrntaieiit les nieilleuis 
matelots pour la peehe ;\ la niorue'; 1 Son imagination d'ent'ant avait du sVpreiidiv au n'eit de 
ces lointains et perillenx voyages. 

Le petit pays ou Labor.tan etait ne tout-he aux contins du I'x'arn et des pavs basques. 
Or, il n'y a pas de provinces en France qui aient antant donne a I't'-niigration quc cette 
region. Encore aujourd'bui on y signale le meme exotic. 

" Les jeunes hommes, dit Elisee Reclus. faciles a entrainer par ranioiir ties aventiires 
lointaines, qui est ehez eux instinct de race et qui tit tie leurs ancetres de si banlis pecheurs 
de baleines, ne craignent pas de s'expatrier et de s'enfuir en Amerique, mr-me sans espoir de

chatelain bearnais un. billet de logement chez des colons de la seigneurie de Beaupre. II 
aurait pu se croire chez lui dans ce coin de pays. En ett'et, les anciens pecheurs basques 
avaient donne a cette partie de la colonie le nom de Biscaye, et ils appolaient Pyrenees la 
chame de montagnes qui la separe des regions du nord. 1 La seigneurie do Beaupre etait 
alors, comme aujourd'hui, une des plus belles ct des plus riches campagncs du Canada. 
Lahontan garda le meilleur souvenir de 1'hospitalite qu'il y re<;ut. C'ust de 1'une des tonnes 
de Beaupre, par un jour clair et serein d'hiver, qu'assis dovant une largo chcminoe on flaiu- 
baient d'enormes buches, il ocrivait a un do ses vieux parents cos lignos <|ui respirent le 
contentement et le bien aiso : - "Les paysans vivont iei. sans mentir, plus comnindonient

* Lahontan avait alors dix-sept ans. Dans la preface des Dialogue* (p. ii. &1. 1704), il dit qu'il avail de quinze 
& seize ans lorsqu'il passa au Canada- Mais il eet facile de verifier par son acte de naissance. Le baron de Saint- 
Castin, son compatriote d'Oloron, avait quinze ans lorsqu'il passa avee le regiment de Carignan.

Le spectacle de la mis^re de 1'un et de Pabondance de 1'autre devait frapper virement 1'esprit d'un obeervateur. 
Le paysan canadien tait d6j4 un citoyen, celui de Trance n'^tait encore qu'nn ilote.

cabinet avnr six den principaux marchands de la colonie. Ils lui ont fait comprendre que leurs marchandi^es 
allaionl rtrn pilli'-es et qu'il falluit (jue le |uple fdt appeli'- a d^fendre leurs inten'ts. On accunait ans-i la Barre 
d'avoir envoy*'- dex polleterios a Altiany sous prtexte de communications oflicielles avec le gouverneur de New-

ccuae de faire la traite clandestine des pelleteries, accusation qu'il porte du reste contre Perrot, gouverneur de

Pour en flnir avec 1'ezpMition de 1084, disons que dans un role den troupes au fort Frontenac pour cette annee,

parlona ici ae tronvait prvs de 1'endroit ou eat maintenant le fort Gratiot, a la tete du detroit. 

" Greyaolon du Lulh eatabliahed a post at the head of the ntraight, or very near the present fort Gratiot," dit 
M. Jamw V. Campbell dana sea CHttlinet of the Political History of Michigan (1876). 

Ce fat le premier poate l-Ubli en cet endroit. 


Et quela homines commamlaient ces postes perclus ? A Saint-Louis, Henri de Tonty et la Forest, 
les anciens lieutenants du de"couvreur du Mississippi, chez les Nadouessioux, Nicolas Perrot, 
du Luth an saut Sainte-Marie, et M. de la Durantaye, eoniinandant pour le roi au pays des 
Ontaouais, Miamis, Pouteouataniis et Sioux. 

Le 7 juin 1687, la Durantaye venait sur les bords de la riviere Saint-Denis, a trois 
lieues des lacs Erie et Huron, au sud du detroit, et la, au noin du roi, en presence des chefs 
du pays, il nHterait la prise de possession de ces terres, et il ordonnait qu'il fut fait plusieiirs 
logements pour 1'etablissement des Francais et des sauvages, Choiianons et Miamis, depuis 
longtemps proprietaires du detroit. ' 

A van*, d'entrer en campagne eontre les Iroquois, le marquis de Denonville avait charge 
du Luth, Tonty, la Durantaye, Nicolas Perrot, et les traitants les plus cousiden's parmi les 
sauvages de 1'ouest, de parcourir les vastes contrees habitecs par les Miamis, les Illinois, les 
Outaouais et les Pouteouatamis, et de reunir uutant de guerriers qu'ils le pourraicnt pour 
se joindre a son expedition. A cette armee de confcderes il t'allait 1111 point de ralliement et 
c'est le nouveau poste du detroit, au fort Saint-Joseph, qni avail etc clioisi. l>e la, on s'otait 
rendu a la rencontre de M. de Denonville. 

La campagne terminee. il s'etait agi de clioisir 1111 commandant pour le poste Saint-Joseph, 
considere comme 1'un des anneaux les plus important* de la eliamc des postes jefi'-s vers 
1'ouest. Lahontan fut nomine. C'etait pour lui un grand honneur et un avaiieement conside- 
rable. Mais on conceit sa surprise lorsqu'il se vit appele a se rendrc au loud des lacs, au 
bout du monde, au lieu d'aller a Paris, ou des affaires pressantes rattendaient. \'<>il;'i a 
quoi lui avait servi d'apprendre les langues saiivages. Denonville 1'assura (|u'il manderait 
i\ la cour les raisons qui 1'obligeaient a le retenir au Canada, malgre le conge qii'il avait 
ordre de lui donner. Un autre aurait ambitionue de servir dans ees circonstances, mais 
Lahontan ue songeait alors qu'a son chateau sur les bords du gave de Pan, qu'une nieiite 
acharnee de creanciers etait en train de devorer.

Quuiul viurent les premiers soleils d'avril, Lahontan, n'y tenant plus, partit en canot 
pour se rendre a Michillimakinac. II avait pretexte, pour faire ce voyage, le grand danger 
ou sa garnison etait de perir par la famine, cc qui ne 1'empecha pas d'etre trois mois a non 
voyage. De Miehillimakinac, il poussa une pointe jusqu'au saut Sainte-Marie, et le premier 
juillet il revenait enfin a son poste. Quarantc gucrriers du saut Sainte-Marie etaient partis en 
meme temps quo lui pour faire la maraude du c6te des Iroquois. Sans s'inquieter plus de 
ses soldats auxquels il jeta quelques sacs de fariue an passage, il continua a suivre ses 
maraudeurs dans une excursion qui se tormina sans gloire comme sans sncces. (Test an 
retour de cette expedition qu'il apprit qne le postc de Niagara, on (oniniandait M. de Troves, 
etait abandonne, que la plus grande partie de la garnison y etait morte ilu scorlmt. 1 Anssi, 
sans attendre d'etre relevo, et croyant avoir deja les Iroquois a ses trousscs, il brulait son 
fort (27 aoiit 1688) et gagnait prdcipitamment Miehilimakinae avec toute sa garnison. Voila 
a quel pietre" soldat Denonville avait contie le soin de garde r le poste si important ilu detroit. 

On comprend le desenehantement et la melaneolie <|iie doit eprouver un liomine de 
bonne famille, habitue a bien vivre, mine apres avoir gout/- la fortune, lorsqu'il se voit lianni 
aux coufins de la terre, parmi des tribns sauvages, an milieu des Brands bois, oblige 
d'echanger lea splendours du chateau des aneetres pour une miserable butte d'ecoree, et de 
vivre an milieu des traiteurs et des soldats. Mais Lahontan. (|iii se trouvait dans cette 
position, aimaitla vie des bois. S'il eutsecoue sa torpcur, si. an lieu de pcrdre son teni|is en 
vains regrets, il se tut mis a I'cBUvre avec toute la vignenr de la jeunes^e, ijuel bel avenir il 
eut pn se creer. A son fort du detroit, il anrait pu ramener les Outaouas, les Sakis, 
les Ilnrons, sur ces terres d'ou les Irotjnois les avaient cbasses, il y avait plus de einquante 
ans, vers lesextremites du laeSuperienr, ;i 500 lieues an nord, dans 1111 i>ays sterile et afl'reiix. 
An lieu de Michillimakinac, il anrait pu lenr ott'rir les terres tertiles dud'troit. Us seraient 
rentres an foyer de leurs peres, et lui se serait fait leur MoYse. 

Douze ou treize ans apres (1701), Lamothe-Cadillac, re[irenant la pensee de la Salle. 
fondait sur ces memes rivages le fort Pontchartrain, qui est devenu la grande ville de Di'tmit.

source des grands Heuves. La, ou aujourd'bui se sont installes des milliers d'habitants qui

annongaient 1'approche de la nation comme des vapeurs mobiles precedent 1'arrivee du jour. 

Avec quel enthousiasme Lamothe-Cadillac decrit ces lieux on il est venu planter sa 
tente d'explorateur ! 

"Ses rives, dit-il, sont autant de vastes prairies, dont la fratcheur de ees belles eaux 
tient 1'herbe toujonrs verdoyante. Ces memes prairies sont bordees }>ar de longues et larges 
allees de frnitiers, qui n'ont jamais senti la main soignense du jardinier vigilant, et ces jeunes 
et anciens frnitiers, sous le poids de la quantite de leurs fruits, mollissent et courbent lenrs 
branches vers la terre feconde qui les a produits. C'est dans cette terre si fertile que la vigne 
ambitieuse, qui n'a pas encore pleure sous le couteau du laborieux vigneron, se fait un toit 
e"pais avec ses larges feuilles et ses grappes pesantes sur la tete de celui qu'elle accole et que 
souvent elle ^touffe pour trop 1'embrasser. C'est sous ces vastes allees, ou Ton voit assemble 

1 Le 6 juillet 1688, le marquis de Denonville avait crit, en effet, au commandant de Niagara, d'abandonner ce 
poste, ordre que celui-ci avait ex6cut6 le 15 septembre. Le marquis alloguait la difficult*? de soutenir des postes 
i'-loi;_'n.'s environn^a de bois. Les geus n'y pouvaient s'6carter plus loin que la demi-port^e de fusil sans courir le 
risque d'etre assassin^s par quelque sauvage cach6 derriere un arbre.

VoYAliK A I,A RIVIKRK LoNGUE (1688-1689). 

A part son insouciance ft sa mobilite tie caraetere, il y avait uneautre raison qui poussait 
Lahontan a abantlonner son itste tie Saint-Joseph. Avant tie partirtle Niagara, 1'annee prt5c4- 
dfiite. il avait appris de France que ses affaires pecuniaires allaient de mal en pis. Lou 
cn-iineiers inexorable^ de son pere ne eessaient de reclamer devant les tribunaux les Homines 
qui leuretaient tines. A son passage a Micbillimakinae, en mai, une lettre re^ue de 1'un de 
net* amis Ini aniiont;ait la perte infaillible de tous ses biens. II pretend que par insensibilStt? 
on par force d'esprit eettc nouvelle ne Tavait nullement touche, mais cette fausse philosophie 
ne 1'avait pas empeche d'ecrire an ministre de Seignelay une lettre fort pressante lui deman- 
dant iiiritamment son retour et a protection centre Parme'e de cr^anciers voraces qui le voulaient 
dejiouiller quand il t-tait au bout du monde, incapable de se defendre. II lui rappelait les 

1 II avail batta le Ixiimon, un autre prit le li 


services quo son pere avait rendus autrefois au roi dans le pays de Bearn, les grand* travaux 
qu'il avait entrcpris pour la navigation du Pan anx depens de sa fortune. ' 

A son arrivee a Michillimakinac, apres la destruction du fort Saint-Joseph, Lahontan y 
trouva M. de la Durantaye qui venait d'etre nomine conunandant den coureurs de hois. * 
Celui-ci lui apprit 1'heureuse nouvelle que le marquis de Denonville le rappelait a Quebec. 
Mais, helas ! les guides manquaient pour entreprendre un aussi long voyage. Tons les 
sauvages etaient disperses dans les bois, h. la diasse. Conunent so ivsmulre ;t frandiir ime 
aussi grande distance, par dcs rivieres inconnues, avec des s<ildats inexpcriinentes pour In 
plupart ? II fallut bien so resigner a attendre a la saison prodiaine, an printemps, quand 
descend raient ;\ Montreal les coureurs de bois avee leur.s pelleteries. L'anden ctunniandant 
ne voulait pas se morfondre a faire la vie de poste a Michillimakinac. Depuis longtemps 
de-jail nourrissait un projet qui souriait a son esprit d'aventnrier. Les cotireiirs de bois lui 
avaient parle bien souvent du pays mysterieiix de l'< hiest. Tontv lui avait decrit les 
merveilleuses contrees qu'arrosent le Wisconsin et 1'Oliio. I'urrot et du Lutli avaient. ciix 
aussi, racoute plus d'une fois avec quels delices ils s'cnfoncaient diaque hiver dans les soli- 
tudes de 1'occident. 

Au printemps de 1688, Lahontan se trouvait a Michillimakinac, quand Irs mallieiireux 
compagnons de la Salic, I'illustrc explorateur, y etaient arrives, apres avoir paivouru a pied 
1'immense distance qui separe le golt'e du Mexique des grands lacs. 1 (Ys voyageursy avaient 
raconte que la Salle, reste a 1'embouchure du Mississipi, leur avait command/' dc prendre 
cette route pour porter des depeches an roi. Malgri'- Iciirs ri'ticencfs, on soup^onnait dt-ja 
que le grand decouvrenr etait tonibe vietime dc son courage. 1 Que dire? Qm- jiciiscr? II 
n'en fall ait pas plus pour enflammer 1'imagination nu'ridionalc dc Lahontan. N'oir des pays 
nouveaux, descendre le cours du grand flcuve, rencontrer pcut-ctrc la Salic, (^uc d'aventuivs 
a la fois ! Acquerir la gloire d'uu decouvreur, trapper un grand coup, rentrer en France 
avec ces lauriers. Toutes les portes nes'ouvriraient-elles pas dcvant lui. 

Lahontan, qui etait sans ressourcc, venait heureusement de reeevoir sa solde et celle de 
ses soldats, en marchandises. Au lieu de retourner aussitflt au Canada et tie vcndre a jerte 
pour realiser, il aurait peut-etre le temps de refaire sa fortune par un simple voyage. Taut 
d'autres s'enrichissaient en un tour de main. S'il ne faisait pas fortune, il pourrait sans 
doute s'attirer une gloire qui le menerait surement en bonne voie. Tellesfurent les reflexions 
que dut se faire Lahontan lorsqu'il se vit condamne a passer un nouvel hiver dans les postes 
de Pouest. 

II n'eut pas de peine a persuader a ses soldats qn'il etait de leur avantage de 1'accompa- 
gner. II fallait quelqu'un qui connut la langue du pays qn'il allait traverser. II mit dans ses 
interets cinq sauvages de la tribu des Outaouais, et fit ses preparatifs de depart. 

Jusqu'a present, ainsi que le lecteur a pu en juger, nous avons constamment appnye

restrent mai et juin et partirent le 20 de ce mois. 

* " Mais nous soupconnons ici, dit Lahontan, qu'il doit etre mort, puisqu'il n'est pas venu lui-m^me." II avait

notre re*cit sur des pieces et des documents complement Strangers aux relations monies quo 
Lahontan a laissees de sa vie et do ses voyages. Ici commence, dans la carriere du baron 
bearnais, un episode dontla ve'rite a ete vivement contested par la plupart des historiens : 
c\irt le voyage a la riviere Longue. Ann de ne point briser 1'enchainement des faits, nous 
allons suivre de point en point le journal que Lahontan a fait de cette expedition, nous 
reservant de t'etudier quand nous parlerons du livre de 1'auteur. 

Le 24 septeinbre 1688, six canots, pesamment charges, laissaient la grkve silenciense de 
Miehillimakinae. Seuls, les pecheurs de poissons blancs, levels avant 1'aube pour raccom- 
inoder leurs tilets, les virent s'avam-er lentement :\ la file indienne sur les eaux tranquilles de 
la liuie. puis disparaitre derriere la langue de terre qui separe le lac Huron de celui des 
Illinois.' Ni les oth'eiers de la petite garnison, ni les mission naires n'e-taient descendus au 
rivatre pour les saluer an depart, ainsi qiic eela se faisait d'habitude. C'etait la flotille orga- 
nisee par Lali"iitan. Le vent i|iii soutttait du nord In mena heureusement en quatre jours a 

1'elil r.'-f lie la liaie de> 1 'ollteoliatamis. - 

Le '2'.'. les vovatfeurs atteijrnaifiit le fond de la bale, et se reposaient trois on quatre 
jours a la inisMon tlorissante que les pen-s jesiiites y avaient etablie. Rec,us en grande 
e.-n'-iiioiiie par les Sakis, sauvages de ees eon trees, ils se remirent en route le 4 octobre 
par la riviere aux Ueiianls dont ils t'ranehirent les rapides, puis de nouveau pour 
prendre laiiirue an villaire des Kikapous. Apres avoir traverse le territoire babite par les
