The Daily Examiner, Charlottetown, August 18, 1902:
The railway station in Charlottetown and the principal stations on the line were the scenes of much bustle this morning owing to the departure for the Northwest and Manitoba of the sturdy farmers-sons and others of the Island to assist in the harvesting of the grain crops of that part of Canada. About one hundred and twenty-five left from Charlottetown. Many tickets were given the excursionists last week so as to prevent a repetition of last year's crush.
