Crystal City.

On Saturday last a large number of settlers in this section of the country met for the purpose of forming a branch of the proposed Farmers’ Protective and Co-operative Union. The meeting was held in the school- house, and Mr. John Greenway occupied the chair. Speeches were delivered by John McTavish, James Laidlaw, Donald Shaw, and Thomas Greenway, M. P. P. The latter dealt with the monopoly provisions of the railroad contract, and contended that the predictions he had made as to the manner in which the powers granted would be abused had been realized. H. J. Taylor was appointed president of the society, and G. W. Green, secretary; Messrs. R. Rogers, Robert Rollins and Thomas Greenway were appointed delegates to the Manitou meeting. A committee was appointed to correspond with the Northern Pacific, Saint Paul & Manitoba and Chicago & Milwaukee railways, as to the possibility of inducing them to build to the boundary line. ___________________________________
