Gentlelmen:
I beg to acknowledge receipt   of    your telegram of
even date as follows:-
"Resumption    former     mai

"mend sorting all mail this
"itate speedy delivery to majority
"ulntion."
and with reference to the same, desire to say that tho change
refereed to was made with a view to expedite the
delivery of mail for Fort George, concerning which numerous
complaints of delays in transmission have recently been received in consequence of its having to pass through the
South Fort George Post Office, and I beg to submit that the
citizens of Fort George are entitled to at least equal consideration in this respect with the citizens of South Fort (leorge.
lt is now a matter of eighteen months since the South Fort
George Post Office was established and it is only reasonable
to suppose that in such length of time, the citizens of South
Fort (leorge have had ample opportunity to notify their
correspondents and to have bad their mail properly addressed
to South Fort George. If this had been done, the present arrangement should prove the most satisfactory for all persons concerned, speaking, of course from a strictly Post Office
standpoint. I feel that in justice to the citizens of Fort George
and in view of the recent justifiable complaints, I cannot revert to the former practice of having mail matter addressed to
Fort George forwarded pn -South Fort George, which practice
of course, resulted in more or more or lefts delay in the delivery of mail for the Fort George office. Very explicit instructions in the matter lime been issued to all Postmasters and
railway mail clerks concerned and 1 feel sure that if the citizens of South Fort George will only cooperate with the Department in the matter to the extent of having their mail
properly addressed, the difficulty will be overcome", and all
cause for complaint speedily removed.

The abovo letter was received I
from Post Office Inspector J. R.

a well     considered   document,

that he has been here anil is

the arguments I.*' puts forward
i in justification of his rulings are
i flat and insipid. Ho will doubtless remember that   the South
I Fort George office was the original post office of those parts,
and that it was moved here
from the Hudson's Bay post,
where it was originally established, years ago, for the convenience of the great Canadian.

postal authorities christened a
little two by    four    suburban

demoralized the service utterly
by insist int;- that all mail addressed to that place, without
the prolix "South" should go
direct to the suburban office.
Does . Mr. Greenfield noi.
know that over two thirds of
the population of all inhabited
townsites here live in South
Fori George? The South Fort
George office is well handled. It
has three distributors. When
mail arrives it is sorted quickly

have the mail inl ended for

will again   be represented from
the old    Cariboo   road, unless
one of the   political   aspirants
from tho north can prevail upon
the majority of delegates in the
lower part of th • district at the
convention, which seems rather
unlikely, for lower, or old Cariboo, is over jealous of the advancement of the now norl horn
territory. The government has,
of course strong motives for not
bringing down   the redi. tribution measure. But they are fully ;
aware that there are many constituencies in British Columb'a
that have     outgrown   the efli- j
oiency of   their allotted representation, and never in the history of the province was there
a more propitious time for the
enactment   of a   redistribution
bill!  than  now.  Cariboo is the
largest electoral district in the
province. It has been represented by two   members   since the

manv occasions to feel inconced

from Victoria. Lands have b -en
reserved that ought not to have

the worst of it, accord'ng to

a crude piece of work on the

that even in this remote but
promising section of the province the redistribution bill is
needed, and needed badly. Our

ANDREW JOHNSON.
September 16th., 1411. Dec 9 would set in nml ion Lho proper
Hfittlemenl of tlmi country hy
means of wugon roads connecting with the witter tributaries
of tin' great northern river. I iii"
of these tributaries extends
from the headwaters of the
Peace to wit hin I welvc miles "f
the Fraser river at a pninl '^
miles upstream from Fort
George, Inn in its present state
this route ran only be navigated with difficulty by a canoe,
It could be followed by a wagon
road unl il navigable water was
struck mi i';r Parsnip, a dis-
lani'i' of about "ill miles. Again
if (lie government were to build
a sl i n't but somewhal difficult
section of wagon road between
a poinl on llie Hie' Salmon
river which could he reached by
steamboat from the hraser
this road, wl iich would he only
20 miles in length, would strike
a lake which forms the headwaters of the Parsnip river
from wl.i ch point a steamboat
could navigate without serious
difficulty, lo the western end of
Rocky Mountain Portage, on
tl.!' Peace, across winch other
steamboats could carry lhe
traveller, with a few portages
en route, clear to the Arctic sea.
In other columns the pooule of
Stewart Lake advocate the construction of a road from
Stewart Lake to McLeod lake,
from which point tl o Peace
river may be reached by canoe
or scow, or with the expenditure of no very great sum by
the Federal Department of
Works on the Pack river, by
small steamboats.
Hut none of these, or any similar projects are accomplished.
]f they were British Columbia
would be settling the Peace
river country today. The actual :
Peace River' Hows'for lllll miles
from its headwaters, formed by
thc junction of two big navig.
able rivers, the Peace and the
Parsnip, until it reaches th ■
provincial boundary. To the J
north and south alone- its
course, and back behind the "ill '
mile reserve placed on either'
side of the fiver, lie the thousands of miles of land purchased by speculators. 'I'lose interests have paid their good
money for thc lands and they
are surely entitled to some return  in  the   form uf   means of
access    to      th       They were
purchased, ostensibly, for colonization purposes, but colonizers can not reasonably expect to    induce     settlement     of
their  lands  when   th,.  pros| t-
ive settlers learn that they
must crawl in over saw-tooth
mountain ranges or risk their
lives in dug-out canoes, They
want roads, and iu tl.o meantime the land l.i ilders must pay
the "Wild Land Tax" of 1>.\ per
cent per annum, imposed by the
government until the lands sold
by (hem are brought under a
proscribed slate of Lmpiw ■•■
mant. It looks like a "big-
mitt" game to us. Li'her tlie
colonization men do nol wish
undue investigation of their
lands, or else the government
prefers raking in ihe Jj-per-cent
income to tin' expenditure of
revenue on roads to assist in
developing the country.
We. in South Port George,
looking for the trade of the
Peace River country, want progress and development. We
want (o see the natural routes
into the Peace river country
opened up by the removal of
those few natural barriers that
lock the would-be settlers out
of the norl hern valleys, and restrict their population to a
handful of men wl.i > can run
dug out e.uioes through ha I
water. Ue know that the rail
roads are coming, bin. we arc
nol content, as was Yaiicouvi r,
to sit and wail their arrival,
whilst Alb Tla is en ruetically
advancing Ier inroads upon lhe
trade of thai  vast  area.
"I have here," siad the pallid
young man, "a few jokes on thi'
man who does not advertise."
"Young man." siad the editor, "we never jest about, the
dead."
