Crane, the manager,  having, after considerable delay,  finally got everything in first class  shape.  Lumber is to be sold at Vancouver prices, though the cost of  delivery will be father heavy on  the start because the company's  plans for lumber yards bave'not  yet been consummated.

BUILD TELEGRAPH  LINE IN SPRING  Engineer Thome Makes Selection of  Most Suitable Route.  MASSET     INLET  Not to Build Along East Coast on Account  of High Cost.  From the wireless station on  Dead Tree point, to Masset .via  Queenstown, is the most suitable  route for the proposed telegraph  and telephone line, according to  J. A. Thome, an engineer connected  with the .Dominion Telegraphs.  Mr. Thorne tramped over .muck of  the route between Masset and Queen  Charlotte city, and is of the opinion  the route is preferable to the route  along the east coast, which was  among those suggested to H.

Graham  island will become ' the first stopping place of the.new steamers to  the Orient. From Prince- Rupert  to the Orient is the shortest distance of any route and the value of  this fact is appreciated by those  who known that time is the essence  of contracts for valuable shipments.
