(- General Sam Steele, Veteran of Mounted Police, Retired Thoro aro tow men bottor known in Canada than Sir Snmuol Donold Stoole, K.C.M.G., C.B.. M.V.O., who has Just retired from active service. In thn Dominion his name is a household word. "Sam" Steele Is a soldier by his breeding, Us early aBSociatlons, and long and dlatinEuished eervdce. A disciplinarian without being a martinet, he was respected without being feared by the men under his command, whether these were constables ot the Royal North West Mounted Police, cowboys enlisted without much actual training for service in the Alberta Field force, under the command at Major-General T, D. Strange for the suppression of the second lUel rebellion in 1885, or that now tamnuH force raised by General Steele and equipped and armed by the late Lord Strathcona for the South African war in 189!). Ills fatlier, Capt. Klmos Steele, R.N., was a midshipman on board the Leopard in 1807, when that vessel fired on the Chesapeake to enforce the right of search, the claim to enforce which by Great Britain, led to the \war of ISl'J with the Unltoil States. After leaving the navy Captain Steele was given land grants In County Simcoe, and for which county Uo sat as member from 1841 to 18.I4. "Sam" Steele served in the Rod Tllvet-expedltlpniunder the late PIqUI Manelial, then Sir Grant Woftoley, in lS70, in which expedition Sir Redvers. BuUer was also an officer. Joining the North West Mounted Police in 1873 as sergeant-major of the force, under Col. French, ho took pasrt in the march of that famous body, then only ;100 strong, from Winnipeg to the Rocky Mountains. Steele was the first and last sergeant-major of the whole force, that rank being done away with "wlien he received' his commission ob inspector. General Steele was known and trusted implicitly by Sir John Jlac-donald, who when ho held the reins of government In Canada always kept the control of the mounted' police in his own hands. When it was necessary to selqct an officer of the mounted police to en-uro that law and order was ob-eerved during the conatruction of the 0. P. B. through eastum British Columbia, it was Inspector Steele who was selected by Sir John Macdonald for the post, which In those early dtoys was no sinecure. The Northern Pacitlc had been completed during the previous year, and all the murderors, gamblers and bard cases who bad flouted all authority in Montama and Idaho, flocked to Brltteh Columbia, hoping to contlmio their evil courses there. How speedily they were undeceived those who were on the road during construction will well re-inomber. Wlian the Riel rebellion broke out in April, 1885, Steele was at once ordered to report in Calgary with ail the men under bis command and, �with the rank of major, In a few weeks ho organized, mounted and drilled a complete force of police and cowboys, which with the 65th Battalion from Montreal and other troops afterwards, did such effective Borvico under General Strange, defeating Groat Bear, the Creo chief, at 4. .0 Edmonton, Alta.
