 60 Vict. Re Provincial Constable at 150-Mile House. 761
RETURN
To an Order of the House for copies of all correspondence between the Government or
any member thereof and any other person or persons, in relation to the proposed
appointment of Mr. T. P. Reed as Provincial Constable, etc., at the 150-Mile House.
JAMES BAKER,
Provincial Secretary.
Provincial Secretary's Office,
22nd March, 1897.
Soda Creek,  12th October, 1894.
Theodore Davie, Esq., Victoria:
Dear Sir,—I "have been given to understand there is a probability of the Government
re-establishing the constableship at the 150-Mile House this coming year, with probably
increased or extended duties. If such should be the intention of the Government, I respectfully
beg to make application for the position. Mr. Adams has promised to support my application
and others of position will, I have reason to believe, approach you on the matter. Of course
my only claim is that of an old residenter and a long supporter of the present Government
or party.    If such a move is made, I trust I may look with confidence on your support.
I am, etc.,
T.   P. Reed.
17th November, 1894.
T. P. Reed, Esq., Soda Creek, B.C.:
Dear Sir,—In going through the correspondence which accumulated during my absence,
I have your letter of the 12th October, the receipt of which was already acknowledged by my
Secretary.
I note your desire to be appointed to the position of Constable at the 150-Mile House,
should that position be opened, with an increased extension of duties.
I can assure you that if such a move is made, you may look for my support.
Yours truly,
Theodore Davie.
11th May, 1895.

and of further increasing his responsibility by appointing him an Issuer of Mining Licenses,
Clerk of the County Court, and Tax Collector for this portion of the district.

Clinton, 17th August, 1895.
The Honourable Provincial Secretary, Victoria:
Sir,—I have the honour to inclose, for your perusal, a paper signed by some forty-five of
the principal and most influential settlers in the lower part of the Cariboo District, relative to
my appointment at the 150-Mile House. Most of the signers are residents of the Chilcotin.
1 have confined myself to settlers only, leaving out the floating population, in order that you
may the better see the value of the petitions against me.
Mr. Martin's sudden departure from above compelled me to shorten my canvass, as I deemed
it necessary this representation should be forwarded you at once, otherwise I could have
obtained about thirty more signatures.
Awaiting your decision in the matter, I have, etc.,
Thos. P. Reed.
The Honourable the Premier and Executive Council
of the Province of British Columbia:
We, the undersigned, residents of Cariboo and Lillooet Districts, being personally
acquainted with Mr. Thos. P. Reed, many of us for the past twenty-five years, believe him to
be a man of honesty and uprightness in all his dealings, and that we have full confidence in
his ability to take charge of and conduct any office the Government may deem fit to entrust
him with, creditable to  himself  and satisfactory to the Government and as a public servant.

T. P. Reed, Esq., 1044, Hornby St., Vancouver:
Sir,—I have the honour to acknowledge the receipt of your communication of the 28th
ultimo, with reference to your claim for compensation.
I may state in reply that the Government has given this matter due consideration, and
under all the circumstances have decided that you are entitled to some compensation, and that
$400 would be a fair allowance for the same. That amount, however, cannot be exceeded, and
I trust that you will see your way clear to accept the same in full for all claims in that connection. I have, etc.,
J. H. Turner,
Minister of Finance.
1044, Hornby St., Vancouver, 13th May, 1896.
Sir,—I have the honour to acknowledge the receipt of your letter of the 3rd inst., wherein
you state your willingness to compensate me to the extent of $400. This account, therefore,
please pay to Mrs. Reed, who is now in Victoria, and whose receipt will be equivalent to my
own.    Agreeable to your wish expressed to Mrs. Reed, I inclose duplicate of my claim.
I have, etc ,
Hon. J. H. Turner, Minister of Finance, Victoria. T. P. Reed.
