     He volunteered to go from Saskatoon to Clarke's Crossing to set up a ferry for General Middleton's troops during the Northwest Rebellion. He was enrolled in the Transport Service after he completed this task.

As Middleton's force split to both sides of the Saskatchewan River to move toward the Metis at Batoche, Andrews was ordered to take a river scow along the river in order to move troops from one side to the other as required.

After their defeat at Fish Creek, he decided to go on board the Northcote and was on this steamboat during it's ordeal at Batoche. Middleton had intended that the river boat, bearing a small cannon and troops, would attack Batoche as his land force closed in from the other side. However, either the steamboat was early, or Middleton's column was late. The Northcote arrived an hour before the land forces and was subject to attack by the majority of the defenders at Batoche. They riddled the ship with rifle fire. They lowered a ferry cable, hoping to catch the steamboat, capturing the troops and ammunition. It was 6 inches too high and only succeeded in severing the smokestacks, crippling the boat. It then drifted downstream and took no further part in the battle. Shelton was not wounded in the engagement.10
     The following obituary appeared in the newspaper the Saskatoon StarPhoenix published in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan 11 April 1935:

CAPT. E. S. ANDREWS real oldtimer of Saskatoon who died here yesterday. Captain Andrews came to this district in 1884 and built the first house on the west side of the river. Funeral arrangements have not yet been completed.

DEATH CALLS VETERAN OF EARLY DAYS
Capt. E. S. Andrews, Real Pioneer Here, Dies Wednesday
SAW SERVICE IN RIEL REBELLION
LIVED IN SASKATOON FOB 51 YEARS; WAS BORN IN NEW BRUNSWICK

One of the most colorful figures of Saskatoon's early days, Captain E. Shelton Andrews, died at his home, 241 Eleventh Street, east. Wednesday afternoon. He had spent 51 of his 82 years of life in Saskatoon. His was the first house on the west side of the river where the city now stands and in 1884 he brought here the cargo of lumber from which the first permanent building of the Temperance Colonization Society was constructed.

WAS SEA CAPTAIN
Born at St. Andrew's, Minister's Island, New Brunswick, he followed the sea for 14 years, rising to the rank of captain before ill-health forced him to retire. Prior to coming to Saskatoon, he spent three years at Selkirk, Manitoba, where he was captain of a boat on Lake Winnipeg.

Captain Andrews is survived by his widow, herself a pioneer, having come to Saskatoon in 1883, and by seven children, Mrs. Ross Gorham, Edmonton; Mrs. Arthur Kidd, Cookstown, Ontario; Miss Gladys Andrews and Miss Florence Andrews residing at home, Marshall Andrews, Grandora; Shelton Andrews, with the God's Lake Mining Company in Northern Manitoba, and George Andrews, Toronto.
Captain Andrews first cams to Saskatoon early in 1884 when he heard that the authorities were having troubles with the Indians. Nothing came of the Indian disturbances, so he accepted a commission from the Temperance Colonization Society to go to Medicine Hat and bring their recently purchased boat May Queen and a scow of lumber to the settlement. The boat left Medicine Hat on May 7 and took two weeks to make the trip here. The only settlement between the two places was one at Swift Current Crossing.

The island on which Captain Andrews was born was in the possession of the Andrews' family for four generations. It was purchased by the Rev. Samuel Andrews, a United Empire Loyalist, from Captain Samuel Osborne, who had it as a grant from the Crown for services rendered in giving protection to Loyalists in the American Revolution. In later years. Sir William Van Horne owned half the island and resided there. Captain Andrews older brother disposed of his interest in Minister's Island several years ago.

MARRIED IN 1885
Captain Andrews was the youngest of a family of eight. He was educated at 8t. Andrew's and the Naval Academy In Belfast, immediately finding a place in the Atlantic service. After 14 year in this service, his health became poor and he ventured into Western Canada. A few years at Selkirk and then he moved to Saskatoon.

In 1884, Captain Andrews selected the quarter section near the present site of the Quaker Oats plant and built his first home in Saskatoon about 300 yards west of the present mill.

The following year he married Mary Ellen Thomson, who had come into the settlement that season. The bridal couple were obliged to travel to Prince Albert to the nearest minister to have the ceremony performed. They traveled in a "Jumper," spent four days on the road, stopping with settlers between the settlements each night, and arrived at Prince Albert when the thermometer registered 60 degrees below zero.

CAPTAIN OF GUARDS
That year, too, he participated in the Riel Rebellion. When the disturbances first broke out, he was made captain of the Home Guards. The total supply of arms for the guards consisted of eight or 10 shotguns and three or four rifles, until one of the residents returned from Moose Jaw with a supply of arms and ammunition.

Soon Captain Andrews decided to take a more active part. He went to Clark's Crossing where the troops for the invasion of rebel territory were being collected. He volunteered his services and was assigned to duty on the "Northcote" supply ship, which plyed (sic) the North Saskatchewan. On one trip, something went amiss with the boat and the Captain was obliged to climb to the exposed parts of the craft. Rebel snipers were posted on each bank and as the boat drifted down stream, it was hailed with rifle bullets.

Captain Andrews narrowly escaped with his life. One bullet tore the cap off his head. Another struck him on the breast, but a book he had in his coat deflected it.

For many years, Captain Andrews was at the call of everyone in the settlement. Wherever illness occurred, either to man or beast, his neighbors sought his help and found him willing to aid them. He was especially in demand to keep the ferries across the river in repair, and whatever time of the day or night a call came, he was always ready to lend his assistance.

Farming occupied his attention from the time he settled here until his death yesterday. Captain Andrews sold his homestead on the west of the city in 1907 and took his family to live at Victoria. The sea-fever seemed still In his blood. Yet the sea was no longer satisfactory. In 1912 he returned to Saskatoon and bought the site of the present family home.

WAS ANGLICAN
Captain Andrews at various times held large farms all through the Saskatoon district. He bought many pieces of raw lands and prepared them lar cultivation, selling them to incoming settlers. He still held interest in several farm tracts.

He was a member of the Independent Order of Foresters and of St. James Anglican Church. His interest in civic affaire and politics though keen, never led him to active participation.

The body rests at the Saskatoon Funeral Home pending funeral arrangements.6
