    THE CITY COUNCIL
    Council Favors Considering the Sale of the Street Railway Franchise - Alderman Picard Strongly Advocates sale - Alderman Walker is Opposed - Special Meeting Will be Held Thursday to Consider Terms of sale - Isolation Hospital Bungle Further Considered.
    (a motion to consider a proposal to sell the street railway franchise with Ald. Manson, Smith, Picard and Manuel in favour and Ald. Gariepy, Anderson and Walker opposing, with another motion to hold a special meeting on Thursday, which was passed)

    (other items discussed

    Justice Beck's Statement (as Judge Beck was no longer the city's solicitor, he could only give the history of the negotiations for the street railway, plus mentioning that he was also related to P. Cronin, the representative of George Balfour)

    Charter Valueless (the Dominion charter that the city holds is valueless, according to Justice Beck, because it gave cities the power to build on any highway, but it was also framed to not interfere with provincial legislation, in which any highway couldn't be used without compensation)

    Ald. Gariepy's Motion (to invite Mr. Cronin to present his proposition, which wasn't seconded; Ald. Picard then moved to lay down the principles of disposing the franchise, arguing that it isn't a city utility and in order to make the street railway pay, it must be able to tap into the surrounding communities)

    Opposed to Disposal (Ald. Walker was opposed to any sale, arguing that the franchise is the city's most valuable commodity, Ald. Picard replied that a gold mine can also be considered valuable but not until it's exploited; Ald. Smith moved to have a special meeting on Thursday, with both motions carried)

    Congratulations to Judge Beck (on being named to Supreme Court in Alberta)

    Ald. Smith Returns (from his honeymoon in the Orient)

    The Communications (a renewed claim by the Douglas Co. for damages of $125.64 caused by a sewer overflow; an application by C.F. Newell, of Newell and Beck, for the position of city solicitor; a question from Malcolm Groat as to when a sidewalk will placed from 18th St. to Edward, when electric lights are to be placed at 18th and 21st Streets, when Jasper Ave. west from 18th St. is to be paved. Ald. Manuel moved, later withdrawn, that the commissioners begin work, with the mayor replying that the reason was that there wasn't the money to do so until the sale of city debentures. Mr. Groat addressed the council, complaining that the Groat Estate people had faithfully paid their taxes and have received nothing, and offered to do the work themselves if the city remit their taxes for the year. He also added that there was no school or church in that part of town)

    Isolation Hospital Case (further on the settlement claim from Beaton & Mallett for work done on the hospital)

    As To Merry-Go-Round (a recommendation from a special committee that licenses should be $100 for a company to run one, which was approved)

    One Report Presented (on the application by chimney sweep, R.S. Scott, to have mandatory sweeps done twice a year, explaining that there has never been a chimney fire in the city, more than likely due to the soft coal used, and that it would also create an unnecessary hardship for homeowners and burden for the city)

    birth announcement of a son to Mr. and Mrs. Vernon Barford
    I'm not sure if this son was John (Jack) Braford who was clergy at Good Shepherd Anglican Church or possibly an older brother. A brief bio of Rev. Barford says he was born in 1908 ( http://www.goodshepanglican.org/clegry.htm ), and I couldn't find anything on the family of Vernon Barford.

    Edit: I had a look on the 'net and eventually found a site which had a little bio on Vernon Barford:
    http://www.education.mcgill.ca/profs...ry/barford.htm

    In the bio, it mentions that the Vernon and Agnes Barford had 4 children: Marjorie (Biddy), Cuthbert Alan (Tommy) and twins Jack and Jim. Since it was a son (singular), it looks like it was Cuthbert who was born 100 years ago (sorry, no info on him on the web that I could find).

    THE CITY COUNCIL
    Council has Discovered that with Proposed Disposal by Strathcona of that City's Street Railway Franchise that Edmonton's Position is not of the best. Alderman Manuel Holds up Passing of Cold Storage Plant By-law. Routine Business of Unimportant Character.
    (all in attendance except for Mayor Greisbach, who was in Wetaskiwin; the council learned that Strathcona was going to dispose of their street railway system, putting Edmonton's system in a bind)
    (other items discussed

    The Communications (R. Hockley & Co. wrote about the tender on police and fire clothing, with the discovery that the contract had no end date, instead of three years that should've appeared; the federal public works department wrote about the Grierson St. land slide; the St. Albert Agricultural Society asked if they could put a streamer across Jasper, which was granted; Archie Harrington asked about a refund on taxes on his closed restaurant; a paving company wrote looking for business; a petition for a sidewalk on Vermilion Ave. from Fifth St. West was received)

    One Petition Presented (60 names against the early-closing bylaw)

    Cold Storage Plant By-Law (discussion of a new bylaw for the plant in which the exemption from taxation was dropped and a request for free utilities for 30 years, with Ald. Gariepy wanting an arbitration clause, Ald. Picard advising that a specific quantity of water light and power should be shown, and Ald. Manuel also insisting on an arbitration clause, in case the city sells the utilities and gets stuck with still having to pay, first and second readings passed with Manuel in disagreement, holding up third reading until next meeting)

    Rat Creek Trunk Sewer (a report was presented that the province required that all sewage be treated before it's discharged, with the city proposing building settling ponds and septic tanks with the discharge then going through a filtering contact bed, with the Province provisionally approving this and then asking about the two other sewer outlets)

    Sidewalk Petitions Granted (the requests for a 6ft. plank sidewalk on Morris St. from Kinistino to Syndicate Ave. and 4ft. walks on north side Ross St. from Namayo to Kinistino Ave., Wilson St. (Kinistino to Syndicate) and south side of Cameron St. (Grierson to River St.), with all granted because of the sale of the debentures; the committee report of the progress on the Isolation Hospital indicated progress, but Ald. Manuel says that the work was les than creditable and suggesting suing the architect for damages)

    Answers to Inquiries (the mayor had asked about any charges for anyone who wanted to look up their back taxes, with the answer that a charge of 10¢ for the first entry and 5¢ for all subsequent entries is charged, Ald. Smith suggested that no charge be made for anyone who's just looking up their tax bill, which was approved)

    Another Big Gust of Accounts (totaling $62,108.04 ranging from 25¢ owed to both Ibbotson and James A. Stovel to $14,517.44 to Bithulithic Co. Ltd.)

    2) The recent opening of the Port of Prince Rupert has the potential to open Edmonton and region to a variety of economic opportunities. I understand the importance of such a link for Edmonton, but I'd like to know what your stance is on utilizing another port that rarely gets mentioned, that of the Port of Churchill. This would likely involve partners at scales larger than the city of Edmonton and region, but is there anything on the radar that will enhance the connection Edmonton has to Europe, Russia, Africa, Latin America and the Middle Eastern markets through this port?

    It’s something we can look into – certainly in terms of linking into business to and from European markets it could have potential. There’s lot more homework we need to do on this initiative overall so at this point, all I can say is we can look at it more.
    This came from the Mayor Mandel thread and it was a bit of a coincidence that there was a story on a railline to Churchill in the Oct.12th, 1907 Bulletin. The story also had a distance comparison between Western Canadian cities to Churchill and to Montreal.

    http://www.ourfutureourpast.ca/newsp...e=N01P0859.JPG

    At the time there was a lot of talk of building several lines to Churchill, including one from Edmonton ( http://railways-atlas.tapor.ualberta...s/Maps-16-1-4/ ).

    That would've been a great shipping route if it had ever been built.

    It's an amazing coincidence of timing for sure, and I gotta say my eyes are being opened to our past time and time again with these things. I feel an even greater sense of connection with the city.

    I can hardly wait till next spring, when the Eskimos challenge for the 'cup! (The Stanley Cup, of course!) Go double E!

    Re: using Churchill:

    The truth, although I don't like it, is that if global warming continues, Hudson's bay is going to open up to being a year round shipping prospect, and indeed has a bright future. That would most likely benefit Winnipeg more than us though.

    The Russians are already talking about shipping over the pole, although they're talking icebreaker escorts and reinforced cargo hulls just yet.

    Another coincidence is that this is the notice, that started appearing the other day a 100 years ago, to form the railway company and the routes it was to take if it was ever built:


    It wasn't a direct line, but to connect at Lac la Biche to Churchill would've been as good.

    I know that I'm really getting interested in what's went on in the past. Going through history on a day-by-day basis really brings more life to the history of the city and fills in a lot of events that might be found in a general history book of Edmonton's past.

    HIS OPPORTUNITY TO LEARN (a comment on Robert Borden's policy on the telephones and telegraphs, suggesting that if he had learned a few facts then he'd know that it still would take money to build the infrastructure, and not just collect money for the treasury, and that a city can make money off owning their own telephones, even when badly run, that nationalizing the phones would just be taking over the infrastructure built without federal aid, and that the remuneration for taking it over may not be worth the takeover)

    "RANKEST IMPERTINENCE" (a comment on Mr. Haultain calling the Prince Albert Liberals call for a debate between Mr. Turgeon and Robert Borden "rankest impertinence:, suggesting that it was normal to have such debates during an election, that the Liberal party would've been stupid and cowards not to do so, and that it was Borden's meeting that was butting into the by-election)

    A POLICY OF SLANDER (an editorial from the Toronto Globe over a report from the St. Cloud, Minnesota Journal-Press, of an American traveling through Western Canada, stating that there was 2 feet on snow on the ground in Moose Jaw, crops were still green and now damaged, the railroads are using snowplows, the Canadian government grossly overstated the crop yield and American settlers are now expected to leave in droves, with the response from the Globe's correspondent that there's no snow there or in much of Saskatchewan or Manitoba and that the comments were meant as slander to keep American farmers emigrating to Canada)

    KIPLING AT THE HAT
    Famous Author Visits Gas Town and Spends Day There.
    (Medicine Hat)
    Although it's not mentioned in the story, this was the visit that Rudyard Kipling made to the Hat which prompted him to quote that the city had "all hell for a basement". According to a website, he made the quote that appeared in the Medicine Hat News, dated Oct.17, 1907:
    http://edalliance.ca/news/print.asp?newsID=2

    Edit: OOps, my mistake. The edition I looked at was for 1906. Sadly, there is no editions of the Medicine Hat News from the end of August, 1907 to sometime in 1909 at the U of C site.

    WANT EDMONTON TO MAKE A PROPOSITION
    Before They Discuss the Street Railway Franchise - Curt Reply to the Letter from Mayor Greisbach.
    (city council meeting, with all in attendance except Ald. McKenzie and McFarland)
    (issues discussed

    Communications (a letter from the lawyers for the American-Canadian Oil Company looking for a charter to run gas lines in the city; from the Calgary branch of the Winnipeg Rubber Co. looking to supply further goods; several groups of lawyers looking information on taxes, a bill due and unpaid insurance on the public hospital; from Deputy Minister of Agriculture George Harcourt asking if a bylaw had been passed against letting cows roam the streets, from Mayor Greisbach that a committee of himself, Ald. Manson and Ald. Gariepy had been formed to look into acquiring the Strathcona street railway franchise and meeting with a committee from the city to discuss the offer, with one Alderman making a remark but the others suggesting that it was worth listening to, and instructing the secretary-treasurer to reply; from provincial weed inspector A. Mitchell for a bylaw to destroy all noxious weeds; from Immigration agent John Fraser, about an old man that arrived in town, asking if the undesirable could be deported; and from the secretary of the school board A.T. Mode inviting council to attend the laying of the corner stone of the future University of Alberta next Friday)

    The Public Library (Rev. W.R. George addressing council about setting up a city library, suggesting a room in the Duncan Block which could be bought for $70, and a caretaker for $20 a month, with the mayor saying that a request had n=been made before, but, owing to the shortage of money, it had to delayed until the funds were found, with the matter sent to a committee of the mayor and the city solicitor to report at the next council meeting)

    Electric Motor Rates (J.H. McDonald asked whether the rates for running an electric motor was the same as for electric lights; discussion of taxes to charged towards the C. and E.)

    The Accounts (totaling $1075.45)

    Reports of Committees (a report that a bylaw be held off to compel residents on the water and sewer lines, because of the stringency, but perhaps in 1908; the hospital committee reporting a difference in the grant amount from the government to the hospital was due to differences in claims made for patients)

    Unfinished Business (dealing with Weed Inspector Mitchell and John Fraser; that the new maps should be sold for 75¢)

    A Public Meeting (to discuss the bylaws to be submitted on Oct. 31st, with the meeting set for the 28th; the question of the appointment of an auditor was discussed but would be discussed further at the next meeting)

    THE "OVERPRODUCTION" FALLACY (a comment on the thought that the money scarcity is being caused by the overproduction of goods, and that destroying those goods would bring about prosperity, comparing that to a carpenter who builds a house, then destroys it in order to stay busy, with the conclusion that factories are still busy and that this thought is being fostered by those who also want high tariffs on foreign goods)

    AN INSTANTANEOUS CONVERSION (a comment on the Whitney government considering that public employees should not talk about politics, showing that that conclusion came not from any general feeling, but from the comments from Dr. Beattie Nesbitt, who's employed in the registrar’s office in West Toronto)

    UNANSWERED PROBLEMS (a comment on a political cartoon in the Toronto Telegram of a banker and a butcher, with the captions being how no matter how much money banks make, they never offer more than 3% on deposits and why, no matter how cheap cattle are, meat can never be gotten cheaper than 25¢ a pound, with no replies from either)

    AN ORIGINAL POLITICIAN (an editorial from the Calgary Albertan on the vice-president of the Stock Growers' Association, Mr. Root, who is supporting the Conservative opposition because of what he sees as the Liberals support of high tariffs and the support of the C.P.R., showing that Mr. Root is a new settler who has no prior knowledge of the past two federal elections, in which the Canadian Manufacturers' Association and the C.P.R. were main backers of the Conservatives and how it's been that group who pushed for high tariffs and no competition from rival railways)

    CITY COUNCIL MEETING
    Application Made by American-Canadian Oil Co. for Natural Gas Franchise - Representative of English Capitalist To Be Asked To Make Offer For Street Railway Franchise - Opposition Developed To Application Made By Cold Storage Plant Promoters - Much Routine Business.
    (items discussed

    Natural Gas Franchise (an from the American-Canadian Oil Company, through their lawyers, Short, Cross & Biggar, to lay mains and supply the city with natural gas from their wells near Morinville, showing the text of the letter, which the offer referred to a special committee of Aldermen Smith, Manuel and Walker and the city solicitor)

    Street Railway Franchise (Mayor Greisbach brought forth this issue, with the recommendation that Commissioner Kinnaird respond to Mr. Cronin, who was representing Mr. Balfour, to make an offer, Ald. Picard suggesting that it not be sold to the highest bidder but to those that will undertake the terms and conditions, with the mayor also stating that he had received several letters from other parties looking to purchase the franchise, ending with a motion by Ald. Gariepy to instruct Comm. Kinnaird to communicate with Mr. Cronin)

    Big Grist of Communications (from chief provincial weed inspector Robert Mitchell that the city pass a bylaw against noxious weeds, letter sent to the committee on bylaws and special legislation; from A.D. Cartwright, from the Board of Railway Commission, asking to find out if there was any opposition to laying of industrial spur lines by the G.T.P., which was left on the table until the exact details of the lines were known; from City Solicitor Bown that the assessment appeal by the C.P.R. was considered by Judge Harvey and the decision was reserved for a short while, letter filed; from F. Deckendorfer, on 8th St. and jasper, about the plumbing that he laid to connect to the his house to the city's water and sewer mains, and that the city build an extension to those mains, which, under new plans, were laid in a lane, letter sent to the commissioners for a report; the company of Nicholson & Bain complaining that they've been assessed for an entire year, although they only went into business on April 23rd, with Ald. Picard moving that they be given a 4 month remission, which was passed; from the Edmonton Trades and Labor Council, who passed a resolution condemning the unsanitary conditions in Chinatown, with the mayor stating that the medical health officer had been giving this his attention, with a motion passed to have the officer make a report to council, further that Ald. Walker and Gariepy suggesting that the city look into controlling overcrowding; from Edward C. Jones and James McArthur, representing the Vermilion Ave., demanding that the 5-foot sidewalk from 5th to 13th St., which was petitioned for a year ago, be built immediately, the matter being sent to the commissioners for a report; from the city solicitor that the city was not responsible for an account made by Dr. Gillespie on an employee of Wiliamson Brothers, who had his hands frozen, with Ald. Picard advised that the medical health officer prepare a report on dealing with paupers seeking medical attention; from the residents of Cliff and River Streets asking the city to reconsider building a two-plank sidewalk instead of a four-foot walk they wanted, Ald. Manuel wanted to move to have it built at once, but the mayor stated three things to be considered: "priority of petition, the motion of council approving of a policy of completing work most needed and the question of funds", with Ald. Walker and Gariepy moving to refer the matter to the commissioners, which was carried; and a petition for a six-foot cement sidewalk on the south side of Athabasca Ave., which was referred to the commissioners for report)

    Remission of License Fee (to A. Harrington, who ran the C.N.R. Restaurant on Macdougall Ave. for three months, with the city refunding a half year's amount, $12.50, with an explanation as to the decision)

    To Indemnify Commissioners (the city commissioners and the medical health officer were being sued for damages by the Alberta Hotel after a smallpox case there forced quarantining the hotel, with the commissioners and the medical officer asking for indemnification, as they had done this as official city business, with adoption of Ald. Gariepy's motion that the city had moral obligations to protect the commissioners)

    No Walk for Vermilion Avenue (a report from the commissioners, which was passed, on a petition to build a walk on Vermilion Ave. from 5th St. westward, with the text of the report explaining why it wouldn't be done, including that the petition wasn't officially from the property owners, the lateness of the year, that the drainage situation had to be addressed in that area before any grading or sidewalks could be built)

    To Make Landlords Responsible (a complaint from the city's electrician that renters often leave town without paying their electric bill and that landlords should be charged and pass the costs to their renters, with the text of the report, the report sent to the committee on bylaws and legislation to prepare a bylaw, Ald. Smith objecting to this as he thought that it was the city collector's job to make sure payments were made, met with an explanation that the landlords were in a better position keep tabs on their renters use and probably be necessary to pay, Ald. Picard thought this was unfair as renters sometimes walk out on them and thus making landlords pay an extra burden, making an amendment to lay the issue on the table, the amendment was lost and the motion carried)

    Groat Estate Improvements (a commissioners' report that the repairs and filling of holes on Jasper and Victoria Aves. in the area was nearly finished, and when finished the roads connecting to the roads to St. Albert and Stoney Plain would be good for travel, but a three-plank walk on the south side of Jasper from 18th St. to Edward St. had to be moved to the north side owing to the road being built too close to its south limit, but that a crossing would be built to connect with the walk that already runs to 18th t.)

    Electric Lighting in This Vicinity (a report from the city electrician that wires to the Groat area wouldn't be worth the costs, as there was no commercial advantages in that area at present, but that an arc light should be placed at the corner of 17th St. and Jasper and the wires run there, as well the upcoming winter would put a strain on the electrical system)

    The Weekly Accounts (totaling $40,553.64 ranging from 25¢ to D.H. Douglas, to $11,492.36 to the Bank of Commerce)

    Cold Storage By-Law (opposition grew towards the bylaw since the last meeting, with Ald. Gariepy saying it was fortunate that third reading wasn't passed as he found that public opinion was against the bylaw and that he couldn't support it if the taxpayers wouldn't, moving that third reading be put off for 3 weeks, Ald. Manuel stating that he blocked third reading because he wanted an arbitration clause inserted, and now determined that the company would get a large bonus estimated at $4800 over 20 years, he was now totally opposed, Ald. Walker questioned Ald. Gariepy's attitude, as council had agreed to a new proposition favourably and as he couldn't know how all the taxpayers would vote on the bylaw, with Ald. Gariepy replying that a favourable consideration didn't mean endorsement, Ald. Manson advised postponing third reading only for a week and giving his opposition to so large a bonus, suggesting that the new industries commission advise itself of every point, Ald. Daly then mentioned that a cold storage plant would be of great advantage to the city with the question being if the city should pay for it, with the motion to put off third reading for a week passed and a further motion to place the matter in the hands of the new industries committee)

    In An Enquiring Mood (Ald. Picard asked how many contagious diseases will be handled at the Isolation Hospital, who the order for raising the plank sidewalk on Fraser Ave. and the number of staff, and their duties, of the city engineer, all of which were noted; Ald. Walker asking who was building the sidewalk on Rice St., with Commissioner Pace saying that it was an old contract from 1906; Ald. Manson drawing attention to draymen and stock owners watering their animals on the market when the water should be for farmers, with the commissioners looking into it, Ald. Gariepy asking about the affairs of the International Heating and Lighting Company, with the Mayor replying that they had started operations without the city's consent, but now that their plans were filed, the company will proceed once they agree on laying of house connections to the mains on all streets to be paved; and Ald. Picard gave notice of a motion of a bylaw that all drays using the city streets should have four-inch tires at the minimum)

    THE NATURAL GAS FRANCHISE (a comment on a company that is applying for the franchise to build gas lines to supply natural gas to the city, suggesting that the first condition is that they have a gas supply to provide, with this application being competition to the artificial gas company, but if one of them builds mains but has no supply then it either have to give up their lines to the other company or let a third party take over, the comparison between having a monopoly situation and of having competition)

Hamlin of Massachusetts, former assistant secretary of the treasury at Washington, of American makers of farm implements dumping their goods in Canada at prices that are well below what are being asked for in the States, with Mr. Hamlin complaining about Americans not getting the same low price, with the thought that the American consumer is tied to the American manufacturer while the Canadian consumer isn't)

    LAYING CORNER STONE OF COLLEGIATE INSTITUTE
    Ceremony Took Place in Strathcona Yesterday Afternoon, With Beautiful Weather Conditions Prevailing.
    ("In the box put in the stone were: Records of the Strathcona School Board, the local papers, stamp of the country, samples of the grains of the country, trustees of the board, the premier's name and honors, the staff of teachers.")
    This was the laying of the corner stone for what would later become Old Scona (I may have said U. of A. by mistake, although the U. of A. did spend a couple of years there in 1909 and 1910). There are a couple of sites for some history on the school, one from Lawrence Herzog at the Real Estate Weekly:
    http://www.rewedmonton.ca/content_vi...ONTENT_ID=1728

    ...and several pages from Chapter 9 (starting at page 95) of the book "Looking Back : A Century of Education in Edmonton Public Schools" by Michael A. Kostyk, published in 1982:

    STRATHCONA NEWS

    STRATHCONA AT PRESENT AT MERCY OF FIRE FIEND
    Alarming State of Affairs Revealed Last Night at the Meeting of the Strathcona Council - Immediate Steps to be taken to Remedy Condition.
    (all members in attendance except for Ald. McKenzie, who was in Calgary for the Liberal convention, items discussed at the council meeting

    Expected Edmonton Committee (the committee was expected from Edmonton in order to discuss the purchase of the street railway, but a statement was read that the mayor of Edmonton didn't receive the reply, which may have been because of the fire at the Edmonton post office, with a copy of the letter to be sent)

    Law Suit Threatened (by Deitz and Main, who had the contract to do the water and sewer lines in Strathcona, against the city for $6325.23 for being denied the materials to finish their work, which the city had other contractors finish)

    Suit Against Alderman Crawford (by the Alberta Nursery and Seed Company against Ald. Crawford, who was the secretary of the parks committee, for non-payment on some trees for Allendale Park, of which almost all died)

    Other Communications (dealing with financial obligations to various companies)

    Accounts (totaling $466.10)

    Reports of Committees (a report from the fire and light committee on electricity rates to be charged depending on the amount used and recommendations that landlords be made responsible for their building’s accounts, thirty days before overdue accounts be disconnected, with a reconnection fee of $1 and that no bills be posted on light and other city poles; the industrial committee recommending a site to build the armoury on, with both reports adopted)

    Reports of Officers (the pound keeper reported impounding 5 horses and 48 cows)

    Increase of Salary Turned Down (Ald. Archibald recommended giving the medical health officer a raise to $35 a month, with several aldermen wanting to hold it off until after the next civic election, which the mayor reminding them they were elected for 12, not 10, months and to deal with the matter now, with Ald. Crawford moving, Ald. McFarland seconding, that the raise be denied, which was passed)

    Street Railway Agreement (J.R. Lavell submitted a subsidiary agreement regarding the Strathcona Radial Tramway Co., in which the condition to have the main buildings, except the power house, within Strathcona, was omitted)

    Rutherford Park (Ald. Hulbert inquired about Premier Rutherford's offer of some land for a park, with the Mayor saying that he had spoke to the Premier about it several times, with the matter then referred to a committee of the Mayor, Ald. Hulbert and the city engineer to meet the Premier and have the land surveyed)

    The Pound By-law

    Serious Menace to City (a matter was raised in which, if the there ever was a large fire in the city, there'd be little water to handle it, with the city engineer saying that if the pumps were run at full strength, the water would run out in half an hour, with the decision to purchase pumping machinery, for $2544 to take water from the river, to move the gas engine from the fire house to the power house, and to drill the sides of the reservoir wells t0 increase the capacity, the meeting adjourned after that)

    CITY COUNCIL MEETING
    Edmonton Will Go Into Field With Strathcona Street Railway Co., as a Rival Competitor for That City's Franchise - Edmonton's Proposition For an Inter-Urban System - Commissioners Present Report on Question - Action Taken To Bring Matter of City Market to a Head - Routine Business.
    (council heard from an exhaustive report on undertaking a proposal on build a line to Strathcona and to purchase their street railway franchise, with the Edmonton representative making a proposal to a public meeting there before the ratepayers vote on selling the franchise next Thursday, the report went on to say that if Strathcona did give Edmonton the rights, the city would undertake to build a line by 1908, with a mile of track for every 3000 people and build the connecting line over the High Level Bridge, when it was built, and the report also considering what would happen if the franchises were to be sold to private interests)
    (other items discussed

    The Communications (City Solicitor Bown informed council on the C.P.R. assessment appeal, the McInnis Lumber Co. applied for a C.N.R. spur line to their lumber yard, which council granted under the conditions covering other industrial spurs, E. Halyizuk appealed the assessment of his lots, which was rejected)

    City Insurance Scheme (the commissioners put forth a plan for the city to be its own insurer, showing a list of city properties and their respective coverage and annual premiums (totaling $81,600 coverage and $1240.53 premiums), and as the telephone building, isolation hospital furniture and city warehouse and material having to be insured in the future, Ald. Smith moved, which was carried, that it be laid on the table for a week in order to have all members present to consider it)

    Question of Market (a report was made on opening a market in the city, recommending setting aside 2 days a week and charging a fee to vendors, but nothing of a building, with the full text of the report, which was referred to the trade and commerce committee, comprised of Ald. Picard, Smith and Manson)

    Sidewalk Application (the business of Gariepy and Lessard applied for a sidewalk in front of their store, but the commissioners report requested that it be refused, as it would only cover half a block and not connect to any other walks, and that the cost of them building it themselves would be about the same as if the city built it, with the report adopted)

    Walk For Cliff Street (the residents of Cliff St. complained about their request for a 6-foot walk replaced with a 2 plank walk, which the city had done owing to the financial stringency, but the commissioners' report suggested that a 4-foot walk be built as there's a steep grade at one end of Cliff that would require building some steps, and further the residents requested extending the walk down River St. to Cameron St., which could be done but only if the residents of River petition for it)

    Remission of Taxes (the business of Nicholson & Bain's request of remission due to opening in May of 1907 was granted, with a refund of $22.27, the city solicitor saying, though, that council had no power to remit taxes, but some Commissioner Kinnaird got around that)

    The City Will Make Connection (an application of F. Deggendorfer for connection to the water and sewer lines was approved, with the text of the report as to the circumstances of the laying of the utilities along his property and the recommendation that he not be charged extra for the change, with the report adopted; the commissioners then recommended extending the police and fir department uniforms Contract with the Hockley Company for another 3 years, as the product and service had been done satisfactory and that the company would know better on handling the city's requests for new product, with the report approved)

    Accounts Not So Large (totaling $18,469.96 ranging from 20¢ to Lundy & McLeod to $9103.48 to Canadian White Co.; council then heard that there was no report on the application of the American-Canadian Oil Co. for a natural gas franchise, as Chairman Smith hadn't been able to arrange a meeting of the committee; City Medical Health Officer Ternan presented a report on overcrowding, adding that a more detailed report would follow)

    Cold Storage Plant (Thomas S. Williamson, of the Edmonton Produce Co., addressed council and said he was waiting for a counter-proposal from council, and going as far to say the way the city has treated his company was like a "bunco game", and that if the city was going to be indifferent, they'd go look to set up shop elsewhere, council putting discussion off for a week so that they could hear from the committee dealing with this)

    Street Numbering (Ald. Walker asked about the way the city numbers properties, with the reply from the city engineer that it was based on a unit system of 100 numbers per block north and south of Jasper, with it being easy on the west side but hard in the east because of the river lot survey used; C.F. Newell, representing the McDougall Methodist Church, asked for permission to build an extension on the church, which was granted)

    Thought this exchange at the Strathcona council meeting was too good to just summarize:


    LIQUOR MEN'S MEETING ENDS IN CONFUSION
    Wonder why?

    This is a good example on how society was like back then, even though the city was still far more rugged than any present rural town (as well, I like food):

    A SOLUTION FOR THE STREET RAILWAY PROBLEM (a comment on Edmonton's offer to buy Strathcona's street railway franchise, saying that it would be beneficial for both to be combined, because if one were to sold to a company the other would pretty much held to selling to the same company, but that one shouldn't have to get permission from the other to do something, with the editor suggesting that both cities obtain a charter from the provincial or federal government to run an inter-urban franchise)

    MAKING WAR ON THE SETTLEMENT POLICY (a comment on a Socialist M.P. from Great Britain, Mr. Kier Hardie, who strangely showed his love for the common people of Canada by denouncing the federal government for giving them land for nothing, and how the Montreal Star agreed with him, calling it "gambling on land" and that the government sold it for too low a price and should've held onto it and made the gain)

    BADLY MATED ARGUMENTS (an editorial from the Strathcona Plaindealer on Conservative Mr. Cockshutt saying that the reason behind the financial stringency is because of the low tariff policy of the Liberal government, with the Plaindealer arguing that if that were the case, Eastern Canadian industries would be starving for business instead of being swamped with orders)

    The Kilties Band of that era were formed from members of Canada's 48th Highlanders, based in Belleville, Ont. Apart from that, there's not much else online (there is a highlander group called the "Kilties", formed in Wisconsin in 1935, but I don't think it has any connection to this band).

    But, you can listen to one of their songs, recorded in 1902, here (on the right side of page and half way down):

    STRATHCONA NEWS

    STRATHCONA DISCUSSES ITS TRAMWAY FRANCHISE
    Large and Representative Meeting of the Ratepayers Present - Mayor Greisbach Present, and makes a Plea for Co-operation by the Two Cities.
    (this meeting was held not only to discuss the streetcar bylaw, but also a money bylaw to raise $96,000 to pay for waterworks and sewage construction and to pay off the debt owing to Deitz and Main, and a ward bylaw that would split the city into wards, all three which would be voted on by the ratepayers on Wednesday)

    The Money By-Law (Mr. Campbell asked why the Deitz and Main contract wasn't completed, with Mr. Jameson replying that the firm had broken the contract, with the city finishing the work, with a pending lawsuit)

    The Ward By-Law (one elector complained that when the city grew to the south and west, either 2 wards would be larger than the other 2 or a new Ward 5 on the opposite side of town would be needed, another elector asked if a person could vote in every ward that they owned property in, with Mayor Mills replying that they could, if the assessment for each property was over $200 but could only vote once for Mayor, a follow-up question by A.H. Richards on whether an alderman had to live in the ward he was running in, with the Mayor replying not necessarily but it'd help his cause if he did)

    The Street Railway By-Law (Mayor Mills opened by stating he was in favour of selling the franchise to an outside company; D.H. McKinnon (who opposed the by-law) argued that if the company didn't meet its obligations it'd lose its right to external lines from town but still have the rights in town, and brought up the problem with a private company running the Toronto railway; then ex-Mayor Sheppard (opposed) asked if there was a guarantee the company would have the line up and running in the allotted time, with acting city solicitor J.R. Lavell (in favour) replying that it was in the contract, Sheppard saying he saw no guarantee there; Lavell continued, saying that they'd look to avoid what happened in Toronto; after another exchange, Mr. McLean (unknown) asked if there was a provision to prevent the company to sell the charter to someone else with Lavell answering that they could sell it like any other business, Capt. Carstairs (opposed) recommended adding a penalty to the franchise for non-fulfillment with Lavell saying that council could watch for that but what they've really been looking out for is the return on earnings and how much municipal control there'd be over the company; after some more questions and answers, Mayor Griesbach was called on, by several ratepayers, to speak; Griesbach couldn't act as the Mayor of Edmonton, as Mayor Mills would not allow him that privilege, so Griesbach was there as a lawyer for Mr. McGrath, of McGrath, Hart & Co., who had large interests in Strathcona, but couldn't attend; Greisbach began by referring to the early rivalry between the two cities but hoped that rivalry had mellowed, although he couldn't make the proposal made by Edmonton until Strathcona's council meeting the next night, he appealed to the crowd that the Strathcona deal was similar to the one Edmonton had made before but Edmonton got $10,000 after Tretheway forfeited its deal while Strathcona would get nothing unless they go to court and that having one combined franchise would be better than two fractured ones; at this point Mills got a little testy, rose and said that "close attention be paid to the remarks of the mayor of Edmonton - he begged his pardon - of the solicitor of Mr. McGrath" and noted that it'd be McGrath, not Greisbach who'd be voting, at which point Griesbach shot back that if Mills would stay seated and let him continue; Griesbach then mentioned the recent shared services between the cities; Jamieson then mentioned that he was disappointed with Griesbach's remarks and expected a proposition, but Griesbach replied that "You did not give me - or the mayor didn't - the status to deal with you."; Jamieson then mentioned that the company would then try to secure entry to Edmonton or buy Edmonton's franchise; others then spoke for a while and the meeting broke at about a quarter after twelve)

    LITTLE BUSINESS AT STRATHCONA COUNCIL
    Large Number of Ratepayers Present Expecting Further Developments in Connection With Edmonton's Offer But None came.
    (all members of council were in attendance)
    (items discussed

    The Communications (F.C. Jameson, secretary of the Strathcona Radial Tramway Company, offered to pay for the city's advertising the streetcar bylaw; Edmonton Mayor Griesbach wrote suggesting a conference to discuss the street railway, with a number of ratepayers in attendance to hear something more on this, but the letter was laid on the table until after the bylaw vote that day; A.T. Spohn, of the Strathcona Rink Association, wanted to take possession on Nov. 1st and asked the city to remove their goods and clean the place up, with the city engineer being instructed to do so; R. Bugg, fire hall teamster, asked for a raise to $60 a month; a firm in Regina asked if debentures for $50,000 had been disposed of; W.H. Martin, of the Odd Fellows' Building Association asked to have a hole dug behind the hall in order to dispose of refuse until the sewer line was built; H.F. Sandeman, enclosing a letter from C.S. Lott of Calgary, inquired about buying the proposed park site on the river bank for $550/acre for 22 acres, with the matter laid on the table until a later date; Officer Frank Harris asked for a $5/month raise since he'd be with the city for 3 years)

    Reports of Committees (the committee looking into a new public library was in favour of it and recommended a vote be held at the next municipal election, with 60% of the eligible ratepayers needed to make it pass, but some aldermen thought that would be impossible since plenty of ratepayers live outside of town; other minor matters were discussed and then the meeting was adjourned)

    CITY COUNCIL MEETING
    Early Closing By-Law Repealed - Fire Limit By-Law Suspended to Three Applicants - Committee Appointed To Consider the Question of Municipal Insurance.

    (the meeting started with the moving by Ald. Picard, seconded by Ald. Manuel, to repeal the early closing bylaw, with East End businesses complaining against the bylaw, with Ald. Daly suggesting it made that part of town look bankrupt at night and that the reduction in use of electricity for lighting hurt the electric utility, the mayor then mentioning that he'd support the bylaw and would so on a similar basis but had to support repealing the bylaw, which the motion being passed unanimously)

    (other items discussed

    Who is Entitled to Interest? (there was a question involving the sale of the city bonds over who gets the accrued interest of $2800, the city or the Bank of Montreal, which depended on the difference in laws between Canada, which gave the interest to the vendors, and England, which favours the purchaser, but the city did add a clause to the bylaw that made the interest payable to the city, and that local Bank of Montreal manager, K.C. Pardee, didn't inform the London office of that clause but only that a formal resolution had been passed, the whole matter was referred to D.R. Wilkie, the city’s representative)

    A Grist of Communications (the Bithulithic company asked if they could use a concrete base for Jasper Ave. rather than a gravel base, as gravel was scarce at that time of year, which would add 30¢ per square yard to the contract price; W.G Harrison, lawyer for E.C. Hopkins, the Isolation Hospital architect, wanted his client's account paid immediately, with the committee looking into it recommending non-payment and getting the building inspector to go through the plans and see if the hospital was built to those plans; Reverend A.J. Law, of the Norwood Methodist mission, asked for tax exemptions on 2 lots in the Norwood Extension, which, because of the city's policy to exempt church property, was granted; A.J. Healey, corresponding secretary of the Trades and Labor council, asked to have the city restore the 8-hour day, with the request sent for a report; Mrs. R. Lampman, of 35 Water St., asked if she could go through the city as a book agent without a license, as her husband was a cripple and hers was the only means of income, with Ald. Daly vouching for this and the city grating the request; Mr. Justice Harvey gave formal notice of the dismissal of the C.P.R.'s assessment appeal; council waived the fire limits bylaw for several frame buildings; Driscoll and Smith applied to repair the lower portion of the recently gutted post office, with Ald. Smith, part owner of the building, saying that the government lease of the building could demand its rebuilding, and, since his firm was thinking of putting up a new building in a few years, that the lower story could be rebuilt and that it could then stay a one-story building, which would look nicer than an empty lot, with the request granted through a motion by Ald. Picard and Anderson; the Mechanics' Construction Co. applied for a 14 foot annex to the Mechanics' Hall to accommodate the post office and to have the fire limits bylaw lifted, J.A. Kinney, secretary of the Trades and Labor council, stated that the cost would be no more than $300 and the fire risk wouldn't be increased, as the building was separate from its neighbours, the city giving permission as long as a rubberoid or metal roof was used and the neighbours gave consent; John I. Mills wanted to repair a lean-to on his building on Rice St., which a building permit for this being rejected, with the city giving permission as long as the cost was no more than $100, the neighbours didn't object, and the roof was either rubberoid or metal; photographer S.W. Sanderson applied to build a frame building at the rear of 544 1st St., behind some new buildings owned by Mrs. Hannah, next to the Windsor Hotel, and would be a 12'by 30' building, Ald. Picard suggested that the building would increase the fire risk and if Mr. Sanderson could look for an existing building, with Mr. Sanderson replying that there would be no risk and that there were no other places for him to set up shop, Ald. Daly agreed with Ald. Picard and a motion was made to reject the request, but Ald. Gariepy and Walker made an amendment to have the matter referred to the building inspector and fire chief to make a report on the hazard, which was carried)

    A Question of Rival Stables (an application by C.J. Carter to amend the bylaw defining where livery and feed stables can be located, made as a result of A.E. Potter, of Potter & McDougall complaining about the stables neighbouring their stable on Queen's and Fraser Aves., which he wanted enforced, with the report from the commissioners on how this all came about, Mr. Carter then saying that his stable was one of three in that area, Potter's stable was unsanitary as a public feed stable and that no objections were made by other disinterested neighbours, Potter then addressed council claiming that it was Powell's and Carter's stables that were objectionable and that it might make him move to Fraser Ave. to get away from them, Ald. Manual challenged Potter's objection and said that the others had as much right to be there, the other council members not disposed to entertain Potter's objection but would investigate his allegations of the other's stables, with a report to be made)

    The Insurance project (council again considered the city insuring its own properties against fire to save on premium costs, Ald. Picard moved to have the city undertake insuring itself as the building were currently being insured for half their replacement cost, Ald. Gariepy then asked how the city would handle paying to replace a building if the sinking fund hadn't reached a sufficiently amount, which may mean having a deficit in the fund, Ald. Walker also considered that question, as government reports had shown in most years, the rates collected by the insurance premiums were not sufficient to cover replacement costs, and also rejected the notion of charging a flat fee on all buildings when one could be a greater fire hazard than another, the mayor agreeing with that, suggesting that rates be charged in the same formula as insurance companies until the sinking fund has sufficient funds and then charge a flat fee, Ald. Manson suggested that the city carry the portion of the insurable value not covered by the insurance companies, with the matter referred to a committee of the commissioners and Ald. Picard and Walker)

    Cold Storage By-Law (Ald. Daly, chair of the committee looking into the bylaw, reported that he wasn't prepared to submit the bylaw to the ratepayers as it had more concessions from the city than the one that was voted down, with the committee then instructed to see if the Edmonton Produce Co. would make another proposition)

    Dealing With Vehicular traffic (Ald. Picard moved to have regulating the minimum width of 4-inch tires on wagons within the city limits; a bylaw to borrow $25,000 for current expenses went through the various readings and was passed)

    An Enquiry (Ald. Smith asked if concrete sidewalks would be laid on Fraser Ave. this year, with the mayor replying that a delegation of residents had asked the commissioners that morning and were told that it could only be built on one side of the street this year, and, since the residents couldn't decide what side to put it on, left it to the commissioners to decide)

    There was no paper published on Thursday, October 31st, 1907 due to the Thanksgiving Day holiday.

    At this point in history, Thanksgiving was proclaimed on a yearly basis and wasn't always set at same time of the year. The 1907 holiday would be the last scheduled Thursday holiday, which Canada observed to keep in step with the U.K. and U.S. tradition of holding it on a Thursday. But it wouldn't be the last time it would be held on a Thursday, as in 1935 it was moved from Monday, Oct.14th to Thursday, Oct. 24th, due to the general election that year. Plus it would be held at various times from early October to the week of Armistice Day. It wouldn't be until the Proclamation of 1957 that it'd be set on the second Monday in October.

    The history of the holiday proclamations can be found at:

    THE FRUITS OF INTERFERENCE (a comment on the sale of the Strathcona streetcar franchise to the Radial Railway Company, suggesting that the chance for Edmonton to gain the franchise was lost due what looked like to the Strathcona ratepayers as interference and a blatant opportunity to gain the franchise in order to sell both off to the highest bidder, with the result now being that Edmonton's franchise is now orphaned, ready to be possibly sold off, and the result being that instead of having a combined municipally-owned railway, there might now be a disjointed privately owned one)

    THE REFORMATORY (an editorial from the Calgary Alberta opposing setting up the provincial reformatory in Calgary, suggesting that it shouldn't be placed in any city but maybe in a small town, like the one in Ontario, and even suggesting that Alberta and Saskatchewan combine and form one reformatory between Swift Current and Medicine Hat)

    THE TROUBLES OF A "BANKER" (a comment on Montreal Star publisher, Hugh Graham, giving his first hand views of the financial situations of the 1904 federal election, in which he was the Conservative party banker, in which he doesn't mention the individuals who didn't come through when a money call came, but the Bulletin suggests that the money came through those who shared Graham's opinion of high tariff protectionism, those being the manufacturers)

    AN EXCEPTION (a comment on an ad that appeared in a St. John, N.B., paper, selling a 4-story building, with the seller, the White Candy Co., Ltd., indicating that the main reasons for selling it was high taxes, scarce labor, high fuel cost, high cost of living and interference from the Common Council, with the Bulletin suggesting that the actual reason is that manufacturers have had exemptions in taxes and utilities not available to others and, now that St. John is trying to remedy that, manufacturers are trying to make St. John and unattractive place for business)

    TWO VIEWS (a comment on Winnipeg city council overriding Mayor Ashdown's decision not to sell the city debentures and to hold off until things got better, showing the uncertainty of the market and that it's the controllers, who stayed at home, who are looking to sell, over the mayor, who went to Europe and saw the market firsthand)

    Correspondence

    THE MUNICIPAL COUNCIL'S INCOMPETENCE (a letter from "Wide-Awake" blaming the current council for bungling the street railway franchise, by not selling it when they had a chance, in supporting municipal ownership and passing a bylaw in favour of that, with a return of only building the length of 9 blocks on Jasper, and then trying to get Strathcona's franchise with no plan on what to do with it, which the people of Strathcona saw through and voted overwhelmingly to sell to the Radial Railway; with the final comment that Edmontonians should do nothing with the railway, suggesting that now they'd do so to cover up their blunders, until clearing out the present council and bringing in men who have a better business acumen)

    In the Nov. 2nd "Locals" section on page 12, there was a reference to the first publishing of the Henderson Directory for Edmonton. For many years, this would be the best directory of finding people and businesses in the city.

    In the Nov. 4th edition, there's a reference to the publishing of the Ordinances of the Northwest Territories to August 31st, 1905. I can find the individual ordinances for the years of 1877 to 1905 at:
    http://www.ourfutureourpast.ca/law/b...st+Territories
    but I can't find anything online about that book and it may well be found on a few library shelves.

    AN UN-CONVENTION-AL LEADER (a comment on Mr. Bergeron, during the tour of Mr. Borden, mocking the Liberal convention of 1893, with the Bulletin noting that Mr. Bergeron may be against having a party convention where supporters from all across the country can come together and set a policy, and that Robert Borden holds conventions in low esteem as he considers that the party leader should be an absolute leader and that a convention only be called when he decides to leave)

    OPENING NEW MARKETS (a comment on negotiations for a trade agreement with Germany, noting that it's an industrial country that needs to import food stuffs, with the Bulletin suggesting that the current tariff prices should be lowered in order to sell food to Germany, with the comment that Eastern Canadian manufacturers may be more inclined to accept lower prices for imported raw materials but be opposed to selling Western Canadian goods at any low costs, with the reason for the treaty with France and the negotiations with Germany come from the present government who are willing to lower the tariffs and not take a protectionist stand)

    (editorials

    CLINGING TO THE TRADITIONS (a comment on Robert Borden not calling a national party convention, suggesting that he's clinging to the traditions of the party in which the Conservatives ideals were imported from England, it was a despotic and favouritistic movement in which the policy was to protect the privileged against the rising tide of democracy and the rights of the individual, with the operations in Canada being no different, where the people of the country were meant only to provide returns for friends of their masters, where the manufacturers can set their own protective tariffs and where the national credit was ruined to provide a monopoly to the railways and a half of the prairies were reserved from settlement on behalf of the railway)

    HE "FELL AMONG THIEVED" (a comment on the defeat of the Labor candidate in London, with the Conservative papers suggesting one reason was that it was the appearance of Mr. W.F. Maclean in support that sealed his doom, with a comparison of Maclean to the parable of the man who went down from Jerusalem to Jericho and fell among thieves, with the Bulletin suggesting that it was Maclean who did the robbing of the Labor person)

    LEVELLING DOWN THE RATES (a comment on a statement by Assistant Freight manger Peters of the C.P.R., in which he denies that an increase in freight rates would happen and that, actually, a decrease would be announced between Western and Eastern Canadian points and between Western Canadian points, with the Bulletin suggesting that the reason for this is a ruling from the Railway Commission that the C.P.R. stop charging discriminatory rates and set a uniform rate scale, and a theory that if the C.P.R. had its way, it'd raise the lower rates to reach equalization if it weren't now for competition and the commission)

    AN EXCELLENT MUDDLE (a further comment on the situation in Winnipeg between mayor Ashdown and the Board of Control over the sale of the city's debentures, with a suggestion that other cities study how Mayor Ashdown, who had gone to Europe, saw the financial situation firsthand, and advised to not sell, with the Board, who had not gone to Europe and had no idea of the situation, and wanted to override the Mayor and sell, and if the Board didn't want a informed view of the situation, why send the mayor there in the first place)

    THE KING'S BIRTHDAY (a comment celebrating the 66th birthday of King Edward VII, but criticizing the Royal proclamation that May 24th, 1908 will be observed as the official date for celebrations as set by the observation of Queen Victoria's birthday)

    OVERHAUL THE DRAFT AGREEMENT (a comment on the agreement between the city and the American-Canadian Oil Co., with the Bulletin stating that the agreement, as it stands, looks to have been drafted by the company, with no clauses to protect the city, such as a guarantee to provide an adequate supply, or even any, gas, while at the same time tearing up the streets to lay gas lines, nor any clause that tells what happens if the company can't provide an adequate supply, nor any time limit to the agreement, so that if a better situation came along, the city would be bound to the agreement, nor for a maximum rate to the municipal users, other than the city, so that it can raise prices for no reason at anytime, with the suggestion that the agreement be thoroughly overhauled before it's granted)

    CANADA'S EMIGRATION PROBLEMS (an article about the work of the Canadian Emigration office in Charing Cross and the work of Bruce Walker and his staff, who sift through the people looking to emigrate, separating the wheat from the chaff, with Mr. Walker's comments on the type of person they look for, telling those in power of the potential of Canada, of the success rate of a very low deportation rate, from Canada, of those who he and his office have chosen and of helping those who do emigrate to set up house and live for a few weeks until they can afford to live on their own)

    A NEW UNIVERSITY (an editorial from the Montreal Witness on the Western provinces having a huge interest in education, with the setting out of lands and opening new universities, with a comparison to the Western U.S. doing the same, and by doing so, give themselves a large advantage over the East)

    THE WESTERN LANDS (an editorial from the Ottawa Free Press on the public lands policy of Robert Borden's Conservatives, giving one reason why Alberta and Saskatchewan were hesitant in trading land for subsidies, that being the provinces were not in a position of organization to handle the massive immigration by themselves, while the federal government was highly organized and able to handle the influx, with th3e example of Manitoba, which was allowed to build its infrastructure without the added burden of handing immigration)
