Other: The Evolution of Edmonton. Edmonton is the capital of the great Province of Alberta, a province with an area of 233,540 square miles and of unparallelled resources of rich land, minerals, commerce and industries. Twenty years ago Edmonton was a village; to-day it is a fine, progressive city with a volume of trade and business far in excess of the normal for the number of people. This condition makes for higher value of the individual and gives greater opportunity for the success of man, singly or in combination. Read this record of remarkable growth: [Chart] 1908 Population 18,836; Bank Clearings $38,486,496; Building Permits $1,086,864; Assessments $22,535,210; Street Railway Traffic (No. of passgrs). 1910 Population 24,740; Bank Clearings $71,633,115; Building Permits 2,159,106; Assessments 30,105,110; Street Railway Traffic 3,688,839. 1912 Population 53,383; Bank Clearings 8 mos. $135,788,548; Building permits 8 mos. 10,250,562; Assessments 123,902,592; Street Railway Traffic 8 mos. 6,893,005. Edmonton is a railway center of magnitude and power. Canada's greatest railways - the Canadian Pacific, the Grand Trunk Pacific and the Canadian Northern - are spending millions of dollars on terminals, hotels, and new lines connecting Edmonton with other points - especially in developing the vast new territory north and west of the city which has 40,000,000 acres of rich land and boundless resources of minerals, timber, natural gas, water power and cattle ranges. Edmonton's school system is excellent and four colleges afford good facilities for higher education. There are 29 churches in the city and good theatres. The climate is splendid - ample rainfall and long days of brilliant sunshine. Fuel is plentiful and cheap - coal $1.50 a ton - and, in every way, Edmonton is a desirable place to live in. Business and industrial opportunities are many and excellent. Free information on all matters pertaining to Edmonton may be had by addressing George M. Hall, Industrial Commissioner, Edmonton, Alta.
