It was I who was chos· en to go with Sir I Sandford Fleming to th e Northwest when h e made his first trip aCrOSS the counrtry, t hirty· one years ago this year, and my re· port on the Northwest the following year had much to no in opening tne eyes of our eastern people. To the generation that has passed, away, I was a sort of a prophet, but it was Dot prophecy; it was' s·imply a deduc­ tion from other lmowledge t hat 'I had; I stood at Dawson and turned south ta in I went straight down the side; and I found by the map tlIat this mass 1 1 had gone up on the slant.
