I L + f HI El Eft 4 ' ;o:o c) 'Ufi Kdmonton Bulletin; Tho meetings of tho lOdmonton Canadian Cluhluivc h been very successful ho far and give promise of realizing the aim of its promoters. The addresses that have teen given have been exceedingly entertaining ami instructive. The addresses ot two such prominent old timers 11H the president of the ciUb, Mr. .lohn A. McDougnll. and Mr. Matthew McCauley give the new comers to the city en nddiUorialfttlth In lis future. The remark* %\t these gentlemen indicate that Edmonton is nut a mushroom town, hut huh successfully withstood tempts to crush it. The. story of such attempts was graphically told yesterday afternoon at the regular meeting of the club by **** Mr. Matthew McCauley. who has lived in the district since 1N7V). He be-gnn at the time when the N.W.M.P. were sent out to this country, ami repealed nt - Donald Ross oalled hi* hotel the "Edmonton Hotel,11 the people of south Kdmdntort built one and called It *;The Hotel Kdmonton," offors of free sites were given to the business men of Edmonton to locate In South Edmonton. The most insolent and bold faced attempt to rob Edmonton was made in 1892. One day a procession set out from South ICdmonton and end* ed up nt the Edmonton land office. Before the clthwm know it everything was loaded on the wagons. The men of -Edmonton left their places of business and rushed up to the land office. The horses were unhitched. Mr. McCauley who was mayor of the town at that,time addressed the people. He knew the only way to avert u riot was to hold the land office. A company of militia were placed aw u guard nrouml (he office during the night. The next day am men from the south of the river came over with tenuiH ami wagons again. The driver of the head team tried to force the hordes through the crowd, and hegan to use the butt of his whip. Me was knocked off his Keel and Mk uutm taken from him.

Kdmonton felt it wns time to organise the pop. ulatlon into a corporal body, and a of the Thr Falls Tribune.) i The theory has been advanced by scientific men long ago that the cultivation of the soil increased rainfall in any country. The plough- ed land, it Is argued, absorbs mere moisture and stores It away, and as the moisture evaporates it comes down to the earth again in rainfall The theory has had considerable support in the practical observation of tavmevH where irrigation works have 1 oen started. The spreading of the waters of a river over a larger area of land of course causes a much larger proportion of the river to go up into the atmosphere In evaporation and the moisture laden clouds drop it again in rainfall. The theory is reasonable enough and of consider -able interest to those portions of the arid west where irrigation projects are contemplated. Perhaps the most striking instance of the practical demonstration otthts theory comes from Arizona, New Mexico and Texas, where It Is asserted the new Salton sea seems to have worked a miracle In the desert regions that are now visited with a plentiful rainfall, ft v ill 1>c remem-Isred that the Colorado river got |iiwd.v from some contractors who were endeavoring to lead a portion of its waters out of the channel for irrigation purposes, and the entire rher, cmt'.ug a now_ channel for it-, .self made its way toward an ancient s abed known as the Salton basin. 1 'I L I- ft* - ^1.

Tremendous efforts were made to stop the outbreak and restore the river to its old- channel without avail except to exhaust the financial resources of the company doing the work. Only short time ago President Uoosevelt called on the Southern Pacific railroad to restore the river to Its channel to prevent the threatened arruiity of the submersion of many hundred* of thousands of acres of good land which was becoming a lake bed. Now the Inhabitants ol adjoining territory are not so sure that they want the new sea meddled with.
