Kdniontoii liulletin: Thu inc�tingM o( the lUdnioiiton C'aimitian C'hibhiivc iMicn very sunceNsful .40 far and give prnnitNe of realUinff the aim of its pruinoter.s. The addresses that have fceien given have been exceedingly en-tertaitiing anil instructive. The addresses of two such prominent old timers hm the |>ro8ideht of the clUb, Mr. .lohn A. McDougnll. and Mr. Matthew McCuule.v give the new cunusrs to the city an addltloiialfalth in its future.. The remarks (if these gentlemen indicate that Edmonton in not a iiiiiNhroom town, hut has successfully witliiitoorl rcpr-aU'd at -temptN to crush it. - The story of such Attempts was graphically told yesterday afternoon ot the rcifular im^-ting of the club by Mr. Muttlicw McCaulcy. who has lived in the district since IflTa. He ho-gnn at the time whi-n the K.W.M;r. ['were sent out to this country, and Avoiv settled in Part Saskatchewan OS their heailipiortei's. The govern -nient of the day and the offlciafs in tile district were rcsponHible.for^siUc-tracking Kdinonton in this manner .which did n good deal to retard the progress of Edmonton. Mr. McCaulcy related the circumstances'in connection i^vith-the found-ins of the Bulletin and read sbme. of the ads from the ourly issues which showed the citiaons in those da.yswere not afraid to ])ublish their opinions of their nf;ighlM�rs in the newspaixsrs. The iiVarch of progress has eg- and prices of lots i-ose to-$300 anil ?-tOQ, The people could notobthin titles to their property, and new'Comers lusgan to invade the place aiid cliiini juniping l>ecainc prevalent. Matters culminat4;d-in the; attempt of'some new-comers to erect liuilding. near where the Queen's Hotel now StMnds. The citizens getting' no tsatlNfaction from the government, took matters in their own FOR THE REST SERVICf: W LETHBRIDGE STOJP J\T "l^^ Vonnld ItosB called hia hotel the Edmonton Hotel," the pcopJ� of snvith Edmonton built one and called it 'iThc Hoi*J Edmonton," olTers of free sites wer� given to the business m�n of 'Edmonton to locaU in South Edniontou. The most Insolent and bold faced attempt to rob Edmonton was made in-1893. One day a procession set out from BoutH Edmonton-and ended - up at the 'Kdmonton land office. Betoro the cUiMns Jcnew it everythfhg wes-loaded on the wagons. The men of- -Gdn�nton left their places-of business and rushed up to the land office! -The ''hurses were Unhitched. Mr McOauloy-wb6 was mayor of the town at that,time addressed the people. He knew the only way to avert a riot'-was to hold the land office. Acompuny of luiiitia were placed as u giiiaril around the offlco during^ the night. The; next 'l�iy ten men from tlie south Ot the rivurcanie owr with teams and wagons again. The driver iif the head ,>teani trittd to force the; horses through the crowd, and liegan to use the 'butt of his whip. He was knocketl off his seat afiri his loam taken from him. The next day n party Vhcn the building was finished and reedy for ojiening, the contractor refused to deliver the key until the unpliid balance of $185 -wuB handed over to him. the money was subscribed by the citizens In two hours. �sTho robolUon broke out in 1885. .The old fort was fortified, the l>a.s-tinns repaired^po shot was made-for the ciinnon by breaking up all the old pots available. A courier was sent to Calgary. The only horse available was one belonging to Geo. Simpson. The courier reached Calgary safely, and returned with a company of the 65th regiment from �Montreal, who wore stationed in tho-fort. Olio Sunday morning three of the soldiers set out on horseback to attohii church at St. Albert. The roads were, so muddy "that a rescue party was sent to bring thoni back. They nearly-lost their horses, in the mtid. The citizens decided to share the defence of the community with the soldiers, anil agreed to go on watch halt the night. Mr.'McCauley was p>aced on sentry duty one ni|^t. Astaiiv^put up his hands and implored the sentry to spare his life. During the i^eliollion times were very hard In Kdmonton, a state ot things which existed until the close of the relHiUion and the arrival of Cionorai Strange. In theautuimi /olio wing the rebellion scrip was issued to the halt-breeds, and however It happened, the (icoplo . had money "galore." Edmontoninns were sorelj' disappointed when tlie CP,!!, wont to' CaJgary. The C. E. was built and a town started on the south bank of the river. Everything was done by 4.he C^.R. and the government ot> flciats to boost south Edmonton, and down the real Edmonton. The loyalty, of the citizens never wavered. s.iec'.or Percy told him to put the weapon away. Then -Mayor McCauley and the land agent carried back all the books they needed. A n epidemic ot incendiarism ~' neKt threatened the existence ot' the - town As many as Ave fires were started In one ni^ht. livents I'f'this nature reached a climax when one night a man was seen to enter a new building that vas being erected^ear the site of the-present Grand Central Hotfl. The man-had a bottle in his hand. At first it was thought that he was going to have a +swig" out of his whiskey bottle. A-tew minutes lntectfully request our rejire-s.ntativos in congress and -United 'States senators from the state of Texas to take such action ns they deem extiedicnt to have investigated the Sulton sea, and the reference to climatic change, and, if found that said sea creates said changes, thnt the same lie not destroyed but the property interest therein be paid for by the United States under such terms that will l)e just to the interest therein involved." The resolution of the Texas legislature is interesting, but its bland request thot the submerged land be paid for by the whole United States is a triile cheeky in view of ,the allegation that it ha.s benefited 'them and the surrounding country to the extent of untold millions. If any such vast benefit has been received by the desert regions of the southwest We submit that i't would be more suitable and equitable that the parties benefited iihould pay the comr puratiVcly �mall damages instead of requesting the people ot Manitoba, Maine and Massachusetts to chip in and pay for the land. Out then'I'ex-as never lacKcit' for nerve at any time. The whole matter bears a local interest for. this section pf Montana for tl\i! vast irrigation enterprises l>roJected by the gavcrnment by which the Sun rivcr and the Milk river are to ho taken out of their channels ond sjiroad over a million acres of land will result in the cultivation of great arctis of land now lying hard and uncultivated, and convert them ^nto moisture reservoir from which a vastly increased evaporation rttust arise. It would tie in no wise strange it at the same time it increased the rainfall and greatly extended the season when it ordinarily tails to the great advantage of agriculture In northern Montana in sections where no irrigation is possible.
