Ion. mnl Hurry Cummiugs,
Alter some discussion of llie
ili'lieieiieies of our inuil service
generally, Mr. Swoofiuim slated
llinl lie laid seen mnl lienril
enough of tlie postal requirements hero lo Justify liim in recommending lo the Postmaster
General the continuance of n
weel.ly service Irom Goldon during llie winter, instead of the
fortnightly whiter service thai
1'ie present mail contract culls
f ir. lie eiiiilil imi Imlil mil any
liope of n semi-weekly service
during llie remainder of llie stimuli r nml full, because of llie expanse il would involve being oul
of pi'opiirlion lo tlie revenue
from iiie service. During tlie
fiscal year ending on June 80th
of this vent' tin' revenue had
been iiliuiil $1,000, while (lie
present service cost 1*511,000 u
yeur for currying tbe mails, besides tbe expense ol' niuiiiluining
tbe postoftices.
li wus pointed out to Mr.
Sweetntiin that Insl year's revenue from ibe postotttco here
wns no ground on which to base
lhe service for this yeur. Tlie
business bud been multiplied
several limes over, and if Ilic
postal facilities were greater
thoro would be u slill further increase in ihe revenue. A greal
purl of the mail service of the
district was now being conducted
through irregular private channels, because of the inadequacy
of the government service. However, if ii weekly service were
established southward over Ibe
boundary line Ilic people would
roinain sulislieil for this winter.
Mr. Sweettiain replied thut be
inul determined to recommend
llie service to the soutli.
'I'lie Inspector's attention wns
called lo Ibe fuel llial owing to
the weekly mail singe arriving
on Thursday nigbls after llio
mail for llie uorth bail been
made up, mul starting out again
nexl morning, no opportunity
wus allowed Ibe business men ol
Ibe cily lo answer correspond
ciice l.y flint illllll, nml thus llie
so culled weekly service wns ill
,'ll'eel only u fortnightly one.
The uui.il slagn lies oil' lor Iwo
nights and it duy nl Golden between HlllgOS, Where Ihey receive lliiilr malls dally by train.
Korl Sleele Wllllled the singe lo
remain here from Thursday
nighl io Saturday morning so
lhul correspondence arriving by
lhe in-doming mail niiglil be answered by lhe mil-going one of
llie sum.' week.
Tbe Inspector suid that Ihal
arrangement would interfere
witli tlm convenience of the inuil
contractor who made his headquarters ut Golden, and would
occasion some expense to him
also.
Dr. Wall said it was tlie convenience ol the public that
should be looked afler in litis
mallei.', and not that of tbe contractor, If lhe contractor were
{ml to additional expense liis
pay should be increased.
Tho Inspector said Port Steele
people should be reasonable in
this matter, tf the singe left ut
three o'clock on Friday afternoons, surely lliul would allow
sufficient lillie to answer ciirre-
spoiuleiii'e. nml iio justice to llle
COlltl'llCloi' us well.
The   -Cllllelliell   present  COllId
mu ugreu wilii lhe Inspector,
They wi re unanimous in their
desire Ihm ihe singe should remain over illl Saturday, nml nny
r. -<-. Hit mi inin I "u >n short of lhat
would fall short of their requirements mnl would tie lhe cause of
coiisltiul I'iiiiIi■linding.
Thul pari of the discussion
wus then dropped, :n,i\ the inuil
route to lhe  soalh  wus  lakon
lip.       The     lllS] till'    Sllid     tile
until iii Kalispell could be arranged so Hull il would leuve
Port Steele ou Tuesdays so lliul,
working in connection with Ibe
service to lhe norlli. il would
mean two mails a week for Port
Steele. I'nsiiil matter coming
Iiiiiii nny part nl Canada or llie
United Stulcs uud marked via
Kalispell would como in by the
southern route, lb' would recommend lo ihe Postolllce Departnienl llinl ii contract for Ibis
service he let immediately, so
ibut in u very sliorl time, less
llinn u month, perhnps, ii would
be established,
Mr. Gulbriiilh roinurkod Ihal
in lhe lelling of lhis contract
Canadian conl meters should be
favored, even il I heir ligures
were higher Ihan those of alien
leiulerei's.
The confab then broke up,
the Port Sleele men expressing
themselves us fully satisfied with
lite proposed urriiiigenieiils, provided Ihm lhe slug.' for lhe
north wus limed lo leuve here on
Saturday mornings.
Mr. Sweet tin ill bus been in
town mosl of the week und bus
given directions, in accordance
with lhe wishes of lhe people,
by which lhe mail for the north
will leuve hereafter on Saturday
mornings.
While Mr. Sweelnmii. us Chief
Inspector of the Department, is
not empowered lo net finally in
these mailers, his recommendations no doubt will bo immediately carried into affect.

I'li-TOU Ihal President Van-
horn, of Ibe C. P. R,, ll few

thnl n three or four mile branch
inlo Porl Sleele would be constructed to tup the business of
this place, Ibe leading cily of
Kusi Kootenay, ll wus lhe
President's idea lliul such a
branch would give Porl Steele
ns good u service as if the main
line were run direclly into the
cily, while it would avoid the
lengthening of ibe ninin line
throe or four miles.
Tile people of Port Sleele
don'l agree witli Sir Win. Van-
borne on lliul subject, and lhe
surveys llial are now being made
by lhe C. P. It. engineers into
Ibis cily are more than likely lo
convince him that the people
here are right. 'I'lie main line,
il is true, would be lengthened
nbout fifteen minutes by coining
lo Port Steele, but what is lhat
