ANNOUNCEMENT
THE WiSr ROAD
Considerable discussion arose over
the motion moved at the meeting ol
tne board of Trade on Thursday
n.ght with reference to the urging
upon tbe Government the necessity of
completeing the road to the Wcsi at
as early a date as possible. Some of
the members considered tbat the
road to the Big Bend was of more
importance and many reasons w.re
advanced as to why the question ol
the latter roud and other improvements were not taken up tirst. Some
thought that the tourist traffic was
tbc must important ijuestion at present, while others considered the mining In the lii-.; Bend sh mid come
fcrst. The matter was considered of
such great importance that it was
decided to hold it over until the next
meeting to give the citizens an opportunity to discuss and thrash tbe
matter out themselves before taking
any further sti ps,
