Doctor C. H. Stuart Wade, Police Magistrate
Doctor Wade was born at Macclesfield, England, in 1853, and is a descendant of one of the 
oldest British families. He was educated at the Plymouth Collegiate School and Kings College 
and received his commission as Lieutenant which he resigned to enter the civil service. He held 
many important positions there, athe last being in the department of the Received General. Dr. 
Wade was decorated by the late Lord Salisbury for special services. In 1897 the Doctor came to 
Canada, and with his two sosn travelled through the then wilds of Athabasca and Peace River 
exploring the country. In Edmonton the Doctor is known principally by his work as a magistrate, 
he having conducted most of the criminal trials for several years past. Among the most important 
of the murder trials he has sat upon, are the famous Lesser Slave Lake (King trial) and the R-- -- 
case, both lasting over ten days. His scientific work has been acknowledged by the Fellowship of 
the British Society of Arts and Sciences, Royal Horticultural Society, and Historical Society, and 
he is recognised by the Masons as a leading authority holding the rank of Grand Registrar of 
Alberta. As a prolific writer and supp--er of the Edmonton district, Dr. Wade rendered the city 
valuable services when sent to Winnipeg three years ago to receive and advise British settlers 
whilst recent articles as the English press show that as a private individual as is more than 
satisfied with his adopted country.
