List of events named massacres

The following is a list of events for which one of the accepted names includes the word "massacre". Massacre is defined in the Oxford English Dictionary as "the indiscriminate and brutal slaughter of people or animals, it states that the term is used "in the names of certain massacres of history". The first recorded use in English of the word massacre in the name of an event is due to Christopher Marlow who in c. 1600 referred to what is now known as the St. Bartholomew's Day massacre as "The massacre at Paris"The purpose of the list is to trace such of the term "massacre" specifically. There are many alternative terms with similar connotations, such as butchery, bloodbath, mass killing, etc. as well as euphemisms such as Vespers, Blutgericht or "attack", "incident", "tragedy", use of which are outside the scope of this list. Massacre is used figuratively to describe dramatic events that did not involve any deaths, such as the "Hilo massacre" and the "Saturday Night Massacre". Massacres after 1945 are listed separately because of inflationary use in journalism after the turn of the 20th century.

Camrose (provincial electoral district)

Camrose is a provincial electoral district in Alberta, Canada. The district is named for Camrose, its boundaries have been adjusted many times since its creation in 1909, when it was carved from the eastern parts of Wetaskiwin and Ponoka. Between 1993 and 2019, the city of Camrose was transferred to the new district of Wetaskiwin-Camrose, the surrounding areas were transferred to several neighbouring districts; the new incarnation of the district, re-created in the 2017 redistribution, includes most of Camrose County, all of Flagstaff County, all of Beaver County. Over two-fifths of the district's population lives in the City of Camrose, it includes the communities of Camrose, New Norway, Daysland, Ferintosh, Round Hill, Kingman & Ohaton. The new district was picked up by the governing Liberals in 1909, with George P. Smith serving as MLA for three terms. In his final term, he was appointed Minister of Education. In 1921, the United Farmers of Alberta swept most of rural Alberta from the Liberals, Smith was soundly defeated by Vernor Smith.

He was appointed Minister of Telephones in the new government. Re-elected for two more terms, Smith stayed on as Minister until his sudden death in 1932; the resulting by-election delivered future Co-operative Commonwealth Federation leader Chester Ronning to the Legislature, although at the time he was still a member of the United Farmers. The 1935 election again saw the government swept from power, Ronning was defeated by Social Credit candidate William Chant. In the tumultuous early years of William Aberhart's government, Chant was appointed Minister of Agriculture but resigned as Minister and left the party in 1937, he did not run for re-election in 1940. Social Credit MLA for Edmonton David B. Mullen decided to run in Camrose in 1940, recapturing the district in a razor-thin contest against Chester Ronning, now running as a CCF candidate. Mullen died the same year. Ronning ran again in the resulting by-election, but the district was held by Social Credit once again with Chester Sayers becoming MLA.

He would become the district's longest-serving representative, winning re-election seven times. He retired from politics at the Legislature's dissolution after his eighth term. Camrose would again vote with a change in government in 1971, sending Progressive Conservative candidate Gordon Stromberg to the Legislature, he served four terms as MLA remaining a backbencher. The district's final representative was PC Ken Rostad, he soundly defeated Western Canada Concept leader Jack Ramsay to enter the Legislature in 1986, was appointed Solicitor General by premier Don Getty. He was re-elected in 1989 but was shuffled out of cabinet by new premier Ralph Klein in 1992. Camrose was abolished in 1993, Rostad went on to become MLA for Wetaskiwin-Camrose; the district was re-created by the Electoral Boundaries Commission in 2017 and will be contested in the next general election. On October 30, 1957 a stand-alone plebiscite was held province wide in all 50 of the current provincial electoral districts in Alberta.

The government decided to consult Alberta voters to decide on liquor sales and mixed drinking after a divisive debate in the Legislature. The plebiscite was intended to deal with the growing demand for reforming antiquated liquor control laws; the plebiscite was conducted in two parts. Question A, asked in all districts, asked the voters if the sale of liquor should be expanded in Alberta, while Question B, asked in a handful of districts within the corporate limits of Calgary and Edmonton, asked if men and women were allowed to drink together in establishments. Province wide Question A of the plebiscite passed in 33 of the 50 districts while Question B passed in all five districts. Camrose voted against it; the district recorded the second best turnout in the province. It was well above the province wide average of 46%. Official district returns were released to the public on December 31, 1957; the Social Credit government in power at the time did not consider the results binding. However the results of the vote led the government to repeal all existing liquor legislation and introduce an new Liquor Act.

Municipal districts lying inside electoral districts that voted against the plebiscite such as Camrose were designated Local Option Zones by the Alberta Liquor Control Board and considered effective dry zones, business owners who wanted a license had to petition for a binding municipal plebiscite in order to be granted a license.

Bath Tramways

Bath Tramways Company and its successors operated a 4 ft horse drawn tramway service in Bath between 1880 and 1902. From 1903 until its closure in 1939 an expanded route carried electric trams operated by Bath Electric Tramways Company; the first service ran on 24 December 1880. The initial 4 ft line was from the Bath Spa railway station via Southgate Street, High Street and Walcot to Grosvenor College, it used six horse drawn cars built by George Starbuck of Birkenhead, with a stable and depot in Kensington. The service was not profitable and on 26 May 1884 the company was taken over by the Patent Cable Tramways Corporation. Seven further 12-seater cars were purchased, it entered liquidation and was taken over by Dick, Kerr & Co. on 11 August 1888. This was taken over by the Bath Road Car and Tramways Company, who ran the buses in the area, on 1 April 1889; the horse drawn service continued until 1902 when the company was taken over by Bath Corporation and modernised and electrified by the Bath Electric Tramways Company, a subsidiary of British Electric Traction.

The 4 ft tracks were replaced by a 4 ft 8 1⁄2 in track. Six electric cars were brought in December 1903 and on 2 January 1904 the new service opened. Additional lines to Bathford, Combe Down and Oldfield Park were constructed; the company fleet was yellow. There were 18 55-seat tramcars all purchased in 1903 and 1904 from G. F. Milnes & Co. which operated from a new depot in Beehive Yard off Walcot Street. In 1905 an additional line to Newton St Loe opened and proposals were drawn up to connect this with Bristol Tramways although this was never built. To operate this line the fleet was joined by four single-decked 30-seat cars known as'whippets'. On 3 July 1933, a tram crashed into another tram. A passenger was killed and fifteen were injured. In 1936 the company was taken over by the Bristol Tramways and Carriage Company who began to replace the trams with their buses; the Newton St Loe line closed in 1938 with the rest closing in May the following year. One of the original horse-drawn tramcars has been preserved, is now at the Ipswich Transport Museum.

It was built by Starbuck Car and Wagon Company of Birkenhead as a single deck vehicle around 1880, operated in Bath until around 1884. It was purchased by the Bradford and Shelf Tramway Company, where it was used as a trailer to a steam tram, although details are sketchy. By 1894 an upper deck had been added, the tram was sold again to Cambridge Street Tramways, becoming their number 7; the Cambridge system closed in 1914, the vehicles were sold at auction. Tram number 7 became a workshop extension to a bungalow in Ely, where it remained until it was rescued in 2003 by the museum; the vehicle was renovated between 2012 and 2019, assisted by a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund, its previous history became apparent as the layers of paint were stripped away. In 2006 a private group Trams for Bath proposed their re-introduction. In 2015 a further initiative was under discussion by a new group Bath Trams. In 2017 Bath and North East Somerset council announced it was to carry out a feasibility study of a light rail system.

The study was produced by Atkins, in January 2018, Bath Council identified four routes which could have tram routes and identified that the proposals would need further consideration. Baber, Andrew.
