Excerpt from Ottawa, an Ocean Port and the Emporium of the Grain and Coal Trade of the North-West: A Paper Read Before the Ottawa Board of Trade on Tuesday the 7th of November, 1893

At the solicitation of a large number Of people now interested in the scheme for the completion of a ship canal onthe Ottawa river route, this second edition of the following address is published. Very soon after its delivery before the gentlemen of the Board of T1 ade of Ottawa, further study of the matter convinced me that the success of the under taking Of making this city an ocean port really depended to a great ex tent upon the carrying out Of the larger project of opening the Ottawa river for traffic from the lakes to-the head of ocean navigation, now at Montreal. The fortunes of the smaller project appeared so bound up in and inseparable from those of the larger one, that in spite of the pre ference then expressed, a preference based on the fact of amore inti mate kn'owledge of the lesser undertaking, I soon felt assured that in order to attain the object in view, the Ottawa river must be opened from Georgian Bay eastward, so as to furnish an unobstructed channel for the enormous through traffic being developed on the Northern Lakes. A further investigation served to Show, too, that the difficulties to be surmounted in the construction Ofa through waterway were not so great as I had formerly supposed them, and that the cost of the! Undertaking and the time required for the necessary works were esti mated by prominent engineers to fall within bounds extremely reason able. The immense benefit, also, to be derived from this undertaking, not only by the city of Ottawa, but by very large portions of Canada, grew upon me and the great advantages possessed by the Ottawa route. Over all others became more clear.
