tuatu. As the result uf thu persistout
. nmi of Mr. |i, II. Stevens, M.P. ably
supported by Mr, .1. H. Qroeufield, post
ulliee inspector and Ur. A. J, Mi-Mil
lun, local p., ii,.,, iei. the pn im.'Tel
general has issuud the necessary order
that a free mail delivery lie inaugur-
utod iu this city at once, The urder
fur the equipment weut furward frum
the iuspectur's oflice sume duys since
umi ijic equipment is nuw cn route .for
this cily by fast freight. Tho corps of
delivery clerks has already been de
lulled fur North Vuncouver und immediately upon the arrival of tbe equipment whicii should nun..iui.' within a
Uiw duys, the service will be Inaugurated.
In addition tn the free mail delivery

It Is the intention to locate one of the

What with the Improvements reeoutly
inaugurated as noted in those columns
a few in.nui'.n iluce, together with tbo
inception of the free mall delivery, the

celled. The arrangements now pending
will have the offect of greatly reigning
the situation in the main post office
und shuuld largely do away witli tho
