* Note.—After the publication of 1901 Report, a return for South-East Kootenay (which had been overlooked) was received ;
therefore, the Report was not as complete as it should have been, and instead of the totals being for births, 2,107; deaths, 1,460, and
marriages, 1,122, the registered births for 1901 were 2,146; deaths, 1,488, and marriages, 1,150. J 66
