The City of Edmonton is the capital of the Province of Alberta, which has an area of
about 265. DUO square miles and a population (estimated) of 61)0,000. It exceeds in area any
state in the United States excepting Texas, being five times greater than New York State
and as large as the combined areas of Montana, North Dakota and Minnesota. It is one
of the most productive of all the Provinces of Canada, .
Edmonton is situated about midway between Winnipeg and the Pacific coast. It Is on
the main line of the Grand Trunk Pacific and Canadian Northern Railways, which extend
from the Atlantic to the Pacific, and is the center of a complete system of competing rail
way lines radiating in every direction throughout the Province.
There are now located in Edmonton approximately 100 wholesale houses, in addition to
a number of important "diversified industries, including- three meat-packing establishments,
flour mills, creameries, shoe factories, elevators, brick works, car repairing shops, as
well as the general shops of the Edmonton, Dunvegan and British Columbia Railway.
Edmonton is surrounded by an excellent agricultural country, the soil being a rich black
! vegetable loam, practically unexcelled for grain growing. In addition cattle and sheep
raising and dairying are very extensively carried on. The grain crop last year had an
estimated value of 8118,000,000 and other agricultural products apart from grain of
810,610.000. .
Rich deposits of coal, which are being steadily developed, underlie a large section of
the country surrounding Edmonton, so that the city is not only in a position to get very
cheap power and fiiel, but also derives a substantial benefit from this industry. Be a

It is just as much the duty, and the function of the
modern investment banking institution to render cour
teous and conscientious service after selling an issue of
bonds as it is to place every reasonable safeguard around
the preliminary investigation and proceedings.
After satisfying himself that an issue of bonds is safe
and desirable, the investor has the right to inquire:
Will the company handling the bonds ex
tend me service from the day the money is
invested until final payments of interest and
principal have been made ?
Will it keep in touch with the affairs of
the obligors?
Is the company faithful to its promises and
representations, or is it extravagant and,
boastful in its claims and guaranties ?
