    I also added a cutout of some off-the-cuff comments by the editor. Sometimes it's a little inflammatory and there may be racial comments of that time (I'll keep those out if they're meant as derogatory comments).

    ^ So people were "living" in tents then too...although the Bulletin says it was "Not an Unpleasant Experience".

    Difference in reporting in 2007 is now there are stories involving Capital Health, the City, EPS, concerned citizens and the like and rallies are being held to overcome the crisis.

    Very sad that in 100 years some of our citizens are still in the same place--tents-- due to the "inability to secure other quarters".

    Wow, a lot has changed in things. Notably that Mars and Earth apparently weren't the best comparison. Eerie to see the "abdication" of the Korean Emporer as it was presented at the time too.

    I'm pleased to have a look at 100 year old Calgary jokes though. Some things may never change.

    Thanks TerryH!

    I don't think it is a very good idea to censor history.

    I agree with Glenco... one good thing about not
    censoring history is that it let's us see how we've
    progressed ( or the opposite ).

    Agreed.

    By the way, did anybody notice that ironically, on page 4 there's a section called "24 years ago- Taken from the Old Fyles of the Bulletin, July 1883" Stories include the first "frame barn" going up in Edmonton and the fact that carpenter's wages were "still $4.50 per day."

    Great stuff.

    OK. But I'm just posting headlines and other notable items. The links go to the actual paper, which hasn't been edited or altered to censor out stuff. Because these are .jpg files, and not text, means having to retype what was published and that would be an immense chore.

    ^TerryH,

    I agree with how you are just posting the headlines and notable items with the links. I have checked them out.

    I also agree with you that having to re-type would be an immense task (says the girl who does this often when she cannot find an article online).

    I agree with Glenco and MylesC who post that history should not be censored but do not think this is censorship as it is simply grabbing some key information.

    Thanks again, I love this kind of stuff!

    I decided to do all the major and minor headlines to show the type of stories being done at the time. It's interesting to see how the news was more Western Canadian, national and international, mainly because of the population, commnication and transportation of Edmonton and area in those days. Plus the issues that were affecting the city, and elsewhere, then.

    I read in an earlier edition about farmers complaining about the scarcity of cars. Even back then, it was a car-orientated society...

    ...although those were rail cars back then.

    For those that haven't read the story, it was about gravelling St. Albert Trail from Edmonton to St. Albert. there was concern about gravelling it outside of the city limits, due to the cost, and that part of the trail went through private property.

    For you pothole fans, this bit may be interesting (from Queries to be Addressed):

    "Ald. Picard said his attention had been called to a mudhole in front of the St. James hotel. He considered that a couple of loads of gravel would be well placed at this point. The commisssioners noted the complaint."

    i would like to echo djgirl's thank you for this thread as well.

    i'm not sure if i'm the only one that tries to read it as if it was today's paper - and not 100 years ago today - to see how much, if anything, has really changed in the last century.

    From the very first post's:
    "1098 TENTS IN EDMONTON OCCUPIED BY 3294 TENTERS:
    For pleasure, for economy and for inability to Secure Other Quarters - Almost a Fifth of Edmonton's Population Lives Under Canvas - Not an Unpleasant Experience"

    to today's:
    "THE AIR GUN
    Harmless Toy Could Be a Lot More Harmless."

    it's pretty eerie how we manage to mirror the past.

    Thanks, Ken.

    What is also interesting is the stories and opinions that shaped what the city would later become. I'm not sure which paper would be more definitive in reflecting the attitutes of Edmonton and not having access to the Journal keeps the views one sided, if there was much difference.

    Of course, finding that out would take a lot of reading.

    "TOO GENEROUS" (quoting from the Edmonton Journal on the ability of current rural landowners to buy additional land at a low prices.

    ^ So even 100 years ago there were Representatives to spread the news of Edmonton's Advantage to the US and foreign journalists were touring here (Canada).

    Only had to "raise" $2,500 then though!

    Land cost disputes were topical then also!

    The more things change the more they are still the same...

    Back then, the city was going also through a period of rapid growth. I read that later on that the population would rise to about 72,000 (including the amalgamation of Stratchcona) by 1914. And Prince Rupert was alraedy being touted as the next great port.

    On the other hand, the editorial on the eastern banks passing on investing in Western Canada, including the reluctance to loan money in order to buy land, which may have been for housing instead of homesteading. This was a main reason why the city would hit hard times until Leduc No.1. And why some people here still have little sympathy that our current prosperity is playing havoc in southern Ontario.

    I had a look at the aldermanic race in 1907 and found out something interesting. (couldn't resist when I saw C Ross Palmer)

    The story was for a bye election in August for remainder of term to December when the full election was held.

    On August 6, 1907, Morton Macauley, an alderman on Edmonton City Council, resigned from council. Since his term was not due to expire until December, the city held a by-election on August 26. George Manuel defeated James D. Blayney by a count of 482 votes to 370 votes, and was elected to fulfill Macauley's term.

    The full election was held december 9th 1907 amazing how things have changed. Now it would be up to council continue without an election based on how close the the term ended, the cost would be enormous now.

    And Manuel nor Blayney never ran in December

    Interesting that there was a Palmer running for civic office then as you're doing now. Was he an ancestor of yours?

    Thank you, DJ. I try to keep up. It's a little tough as there's no computer text to copy and paste, and I'm a slow two-finger typist. Sometimes takes 3 hours to do depending on how many minor headlines there are. Many are just one paragraph or even one short sentence.

    Just call me Terry, as well. I would've used that as my name here but there's probably someone else out there with it as well.

    I did invest in a 4Gbyte memory stick, though. That way I can download the images at work and take them home.

    Not sure can only find reference to him on the EPL website as part of the board of directors with the then current mayor.
    Here are the only references I can find for C. Ross Palmer and Edmonton:

    1909
    First Edmonton Public Library Board appointed, consisting of: Mayor Robert Lee, Alderman J.E. Lundy, C. Ross Palmer, K.W. McKenzie, Judge Beck, Prof. Riddell, and L. Madore
    http://www.epl.ca/EPLCapsuleHistory.cfm

    059 EDMONTON DAILY
    JULY 5, 1907

    FORDE, F. Mrs.
    PALMER, C. Ross
    KENNETH, R. Mrs.

    Word reached the city yesterday announcing the sudden death of Mrs. F. Forde at Ottawa. Mrs. Forde was visiting her brother and sister. Mr. C. Ross Palmer and Mrs. R. Kenneth last summer in Edmonton.
    http://www.rootsweb.com/~abwcobit/Ne...DE19070705.txt

    282 EDMONTON DAILY
    AUG 1, 1907

    CAIRNS, Agnes Miss.
    ASHWELL, Lulu Miss.
    RACE, C.E. (Prof.) Mrs.
    ROSS, C.
    PALMER, C. Ross

    Miss Agnes Cairns of the treasury department, government offices, left this morning on a six week trip to Banff and the coast.

    Miss Lulu Ashwell has returned from a visit to her home in Strathcona, and is the guest of her sister, Mrs. (Prof.) C.E. Race.

    Mr. C. Ross Palmer returned yesterday from a three months' trip to Mount Selmyn, at the junction of the Parsnip and Findlay Rivers. He confirms the reports concerning the levastation of the wolves on the Upper Peace and states, that the Beaver Indians have consequently been reduced almost to destitution. The peace was unusually high this season, and Mr. Palmer experienced the utmost difficulty in making the ascent. The water was so
    deep and the current so rapid, that it was practically impossible to either pole or paddle the canoe.
    http://www.rootsweb.com/~abwcobit/Ne...ES19070801.txt

    Would help if we knew what the C. stood for.

    Not sure can only find reference to him on the EPL website as part of the board of directors with the then current mayor.
    Here are the only references I can find for C. Ross Palmer and Edmonton:

    1909
    First Edmonton Public Library Board appointed, consisting of: Mayor Robert Lee, Alderman J.E. Lundy, C. Ross Palmer, K.W. McKenzie, Judge Beck, Prof. Riddell, and L. Madore
    http://www.epl.ca/EPLCapsuleHistory.cfm

    059 EDMONTON DAILY
    JULY 5, 1907

    FORDE, F. Mrs.
    PALMER, C. Ross
    KENNETH, R. Mrs.

    Word reached the city yesterday announcing the sudden death of Mrs. F. Forde at Ottawa. Mrs. Forde was visiting her brother and sister. Mr. C. Ross Palmer and Mrs. R. Kenneth last summer in Edmonton.
    http://www.rootsweb.com/~abwcobit/Ne...DE19070705.txt

    282 EDMONTON DAILY
    AUG 1, 1907

    CAIRNS, Agnes Miss.
    ASHWELL, Lulu Miss.
    RACE, C.E. (Prof.) Mrs.
    ROSS, C.
    PALMER, C. Ross

    Miss Agnes Cairns of the treasury department, government offices, left this morning on a six week trip to Banff and the coast.

    Miss Lulu Ashwell has returned from a visit to her home in Strathcona, and is the guest of her sister, Mrs. (Prof.) C.E. Race.

    Mr. C. Ross Palmer returned yesterday from a three months' trip to Mount Selmyn, at the junction of the Parsnip and Findlay Rivers. He confirms the reports concerning the levastation of the wolves on the Upper Peace and states, that the Beaver Indians have consequently been reduced almost to destitution. The peace was unusually high this season, and Mr. Palmer experienced the utmost difficulty in making the ascent. The water was so
    deep and the current so rapid, that it was practically impossible to either pole or paddle the canoe.
    http://www.rootsweb.com/~abwcobit/Ne...ES19070801.txt

    Would help if we knew what the C. stood for.
    I found a fourth item which shows C. Ross was invoved with the 1907 civic elections but not as a candidate:

    1293 EDMONTON
    DAILY DEC 2, 1907

    J.A. McDougall and Ald. Picard are the Mayoralty Candidates. Fourteen Nominations for Aldermen.

    The municipal contest next week gives promise of being one of the keenest in the history of the city of Edmonton. There are now sixteen candidates in the field, including the two for mayor and interest is already growing red hot.

    At the nomination this morning there were many citizens present and the interest shown gives some indication of what the excitement will be on election-day.

    For the first time in some years there promises to be a contest for public school trustee, but some of those nominated may withdraw before election day.

    The following are the nominations for Mayor
    McDOUGALL, John A. - Supported by
    SHORT, Wm. (William) C.
    DOWSETT, J.C.
    WEST, W.R.

    In the separate school board P.E. Lessard and Jos. Schuster retired last year, and as Mr. Lessard and Js. McAllister are the only nominees this year they are elected by acclamation. The other members of the board are;
    GARIEPY, Wilfrid
    HART, E.J.
    PICARD, J.H.

    In public school trustees there are May and Alex. Taylor vacate office and Justice H.C. Taylor has also resigned. There will thus be three new candidates, elected. Messrs. May and Taylor are both standing for re-election. The other members of the board are Dr. Ferris and Rev. H.A. Gray.

    There will be two election booths, one at Jaeger's fur store, west of the Windsor hotel for the West end and the other at the city hall for the East end. N.F. Harbottle is returning officer and A.H. Allan and C. Ross Palmer, retrospectively for the West and East ends.

    So, it looks like he never ran for office again and instead sat on the library board, although for how long is not sure.

    I'm not sure if the box that was laid under the corner stone is still there or not, but if it is, it had the names of the king, the prime minister, the Lieutenant-Governor, city council, memebers of the Masonic Lodge and school trustees. An inscription of the date, the population of Edmonton and the school population was also inscribed. It contained some grains from the province, a set of postage stamps, the school report for 1906, and copies of the Bulletin, the Journal, The Saturday News, Le Courier de l'Quest, The Alberta Herold, The Wheat Belt Report and a scroll.

    It would've been a good idea for that time. Of course, if that were done today, there'd be a lot more housing out there and no population squeeze.

    For a few issues, there was a notice from the Grand Trunk Pacific as to placing a right-of-way for a set of tracks. This sketch shows where this R/W went towards the downtown area:



    At the time the G.T.P. railyards went straight east/west along what is now the area between the Yellowhead and 127th Ave crossing the river at the Beverly viaduct. The Canadian Northern crossed the river near Fort Saskatchewan and travelled southwest and put its yards in the downtown area and exited to the west a couple of blocks north of Stony Plain Road (this portion was torn out in the 50's).

    The G.T.P. spur to downtown came off the main line at the intersection of the two railways in the northeast and followed the C.No.R. up to 121st St., where it turned north to rejoin the main line.

    If you're on the LRT going towards Clareview, the C.No.R. R/W was on the west side of the LRT tracks while the G.T.P. R/W was on the east side, and it's the C.No.R. that parallels the LRT as it goes towards Clareview. Of course, both railways went bankrupt and were reformed as the Canadian National.

    A bit of a history lesson as to why the Canadian National would have 2 yards within 20 blocks of each other instead of just one.

    There's a writeup in the vancouver Sun, about the race riot, that appeared in the September 1st edition:

    Vancouver Sun

    There was a reference to a person from Bellingham, Washington, in the Bulletin story, who was part of the race riot there and who came up to help provoke the one in Vancouver. There's a couple of stories of that riot in the Bellingham Herald:
    http://www.bellinghamherald.com/102/story/170095.html
    http://www.bellinghamherald.com/102/story/170568.html

    There are also plenty of sites and references to the events on the web. I used the words "vancouver race riot" in my search.

    Interestingly, the first site that pops up is one from CUPE. They make no mention of the labor involvement in fostering the racial divide, their reference to it only being from a "white supremisist crowd".

    I should mention that the locality of Hurry was later renamed Bruce, which is about 21 km NW of Viking on Hwy. 14.
