Lytton, February 8th, 1902.
Sir,—I have the honour to acknowledge the receipt of your telegram of this date in
regard to foreman at Salmon Arm. In reply, I have not appointed man named Scott foreman.
I don't know the man referred to. No work going on at Salmon Arm necessitating foreman
at present. I enclose a letter received from Mr. F. J. Fulton, M. L. A., in regard to road
foreman at Salmon Arm. Mr. Fulton's letter explains what has been done. Please advise
me if this appointment will be satisfactory when foreman required.
I have, &c,

F. C. Gamble, Esq., Road Superintendent.
Public Works Engineer, Victoria, B. C.
[Enclosure.]
Kamloops, B. C, January 14th, 1902.
Dear Sir,—I enclose herewith letter received to-day from the Secretary of my committee
at Salmon Arm, in which you will notice that they have selected A. C. Shaw for road foreman.
Will you kindly make the appointment in accordance with this. I think the Canoe Creek
section appointment can stand for the present, as you will observe that Neelands mentions a
letter received by the committee, which he has forwarded to me, from Mrs. Cummings, and I
have also a letter from her asking to have her son appointed, but I wish to go slowly about this.
You will remember I mentioned Pat Owens' name to you last year. I will see about this in
a little while.
Yours truly,
A. Stevenson, Esq., (Signed)        Fred. J. Fulton.
Road Superintendent, Lytton, B. C.
Lytton, February 10th, 1902.
Sir,—Your second telegram of the 8th inst., regarding road foreman received too late to
answer on Saturday night, and our telegraph office is not open for commercial business on
Sunday; consequently, I could not answer before this morning. Now, knowing that you will
have my letter this morning, I don't consider it any use to wire to-day. Having your previous instructions to consult Mr. Fulton and Mr. Murphy in regard to the employment of
foreman for the North and West Ridings of Yale, I did not consider it necessary to write to
you on the subject when I received Mr. Fulton's letter. However, if the Government are not
satisfied with this choice of the people or Mr. Fulton's, notify me to that effect and I will
employ Mr. Harebell when foreman is required.
I have, &c,
(Signed)        A. Stevenson,
F. C. Gamble, Esq., Road Superintendent.
