Prostitute

 

This woman was objected by me, and put off the train at Waneta on the night of the 16th. The Station Agent tried to get her across the line into the US but she refused to go, and started to walk to Nelson. After walking about 3 miles she returned, and slept under the station the rest of the night, she was then without a guard & had any convayence come along would have gone on into Canada without hindrance, but as nothing came along to take her, she was shipped out on the Following morning This woman being drunk & smoking under the station might have set fire to my office & House

Report of Admissions at Waneta BC 1908-1918 transcribed by "Jim Bundy" jbundy48@comcast.net. As it happens, almost all of the people were arriving from various midwestern US states, and on their way to several places in BC and western Canada. A few were arriving directly from Europe. Almost all were travelling by rail.
