'Toronto special correspondence: A few words explaining the reasons which l)romplted the Canadian government to send the expedition to Hudson's bay for two years, which left Halifax, under colminiand of Lieutenant Gordon, of the Toronto meteorological service, the other day, will be found interesting. For 'ilany years Canadian exporters in this province have been put to considerable inconvenience by having to send all their freights for Europe either to American Atlantic ports or to Montreal and Halifax for shipment. The people of Ontario are not satisfied to give their freight toAmerican steamship compa1ies to handle all the year round if it can be avoided, and the Grand Trunk company discriminates against them in freight rates and in favor of Montreal and east ern province merchants. It took twent) five years to excite anything like suffi cient indignation in Ontario's breast to arouse her people to look about them for an independent outlet to the sea, and finally, a little over two years ago, the Hudson bay route was decided upon as the only scheme that would secure per fect freedom for Ontario in the cbntrol of her own continental trade. Immed lately surveys for railways from three different points to Hudson's bay were made, and these railways have to-day an existence-like many other roads-on paper only. These surveys were found to De satisfactory, and only one thing remained to determine the feasibility of establishing a direct route between On tario and Europe without going outside of this province. There was a doubt whether the waters of Hudson's bay were navigable a sufficient length of time during the year to warrant the ex penditure of building a railway to con nect its southern shores with the Ontario railway system. It was for the purpose of getting reliable information on this point that the government, sent out the expedition to Hudson's bay, above refer rea to. The Canadian Pacific railway, when completed as far as Callender, in the Nipissing district, the farthest point north in Ontario that it will touch will be within 320 miles of James bay (Hud son's bay.) It is Iront this point, therefore, that the Lake Nipissing & James Bay railroad will run. The road will cost $18,000 per mile and the whole undertaking about $7,000,000. Between Ontario and the Hudson's bay are situ ated the most valuable mining and timber lands in Canada, and geologists who have explored the country asserts that large deposits of coal and iron are to be found in some parts of it. If steam ship communication between James bay and Europe can be established this road would be a paying enterprise, for besides the large amount of traffic it would be assured from the cattle and grain export ing trade alone, the amount of trade from the Hudsons bay territory in the way of products from the whale and seal fisheries would be large. The Lake Nipissing & James Bay railway is the most likely scheme& to connect with Hudson's bay by rail and is the one that will probably be carried out if the navigation of the bay during a reason able length of time is found to be prac tical.
