SITBVEY BEANCH.  REPORT OF THE SURVEYOR-GENERAL.
Victoria, B.C., January 2nd, 1928.
To the Hon. T. 1). Pattullo.
Minister of Lands, Victoria, B.C.
Sir,—I have the honour to submit the following report on the operations of the Survey
Branch for the year ended December 31st, 1927.
Nineteen parties were engaged on survey-work for the Branch during the season, and a
total number of thirty-one qualified surveyors were employed on field-work, including seven
who served as assistants.
The season in general was satisfactory from the standpoint of work accomplished, but
unfortunately extremely wet weather in the latter part of the season interfered considerably
with operations and in consequence some work which it was hoped to complete had to be left
unfinished;
GENERAL REVIEW OF FIELD-WORK.
The field-work of the Branch is divided into three main classes—namely, surveys of Crown
land for settlement purposes, control surveys, and topographical surveys—and work along all
three lines was carried on during the past season. The following is a short review of the work
done under these various headings :—
Crown Land Surveys.—During the past season 197 parcels were surveyed, covering about
25.244 acres. This consists of logged-off lands on Read Island and in the vicinity of Pender
Harbour, a few lots on Upper Thurlow Island, some small parcels in Kyuquot Sound on the
west coast of Vancouver Island, and scattered parcels throughout the Interior.
This acreage also includes a resurvey of the land settlement area south-east of Prince
George. More particulars regarding all of these surveys will be given later in this report under
the heading " Details of Work."
Control Surveys.—Triangulation control surveys, the nature and necessity for which have
been explained in previous reports of this Branch, were extended in various portions of the
Province, both on the Coast and in the Interior. An attempt was made to carry a net from
Meziadin Lake north-east to Stewart to Telegraph Creek, on the Stikine River. Two parties
were engaged on this work, one working from each end, with a view to having the work connected approximately midway. Unfortunately bad weather conditions in the early fall
prevented the completion of this work. Nevertheless, valuable information was gathered by
the surveyors on this work in a country hitherto only very superficially explored, and the maps
produced as a result of these surveys will no doubt be of value to trappers and prospectors, as
well as to Government departments in connection with the projection of roads and trails and
the investigation of water-power, mineral and forest resources.
A triangulation and topographical reconnaissance was carried on in the headwaters of the
Dean River, east of Bella Coola, including also the completion of the mapping of the area in
the vicinity of Sakumtha Pass, on the route from Kimsquit to the Interior lake area at the head
of the Neehako River. This work was an extension of previous surveys in the district and the
resulting maps and reports will form an important addition to the available information about
this interesting section of the Province.
In the Southern Interior two parties were engaged on triangulation. One of these was
engaged on the extension of the triangulation in the main Kettle River Valley for the purpose
of controlling existing surveys and forming a basis for future photo-topographical surveys. The
other party operated in East Kootenay, carrying control from stations established by the International Boundary Commission and the United States Coast and Geodetic Survey northward to
connect with a system of triangulation established some years ago in the vicinity of Cranbrook
and Moyie, and known at that time as a " Mineral Monument Survey." At the same time this
work was connected with existing land surveys where possible.
On the north end of Vancouver Island a control net was established connecting with stations
established by the Geodetic Survey of Canada on Johnstone Strait and carrying same across
the island to the head of Neurotsos (South-east) Arm of Quatsino Sound.    Connection was also F 10 REPORT OF THE MINISTER OF LANDS, 1927.
made to the stations of the Hydrographic Survey on Quatsino Sound and ties established
between these stations and existing land surveys, thus establishing a control for a large number
of old compass surveys which, up to the present, have been difficult to map properly. During
the past season the Geodetic Survey of Canada completed a triangulation across Vancouver
Island to the entrance of Barkley Sound. One party was employed by this Department to carry
this control northward to Clayoquot Sound.
A connection was also made by triangulation from the head of Knight Inlet along the valley
of the Klinaklini River to the 1926 surveys in that valley, thus completing a connection between
the Coast and the Interior nets. During the progress of this work the surveyor was able to
determine the position and elevation of a mountain in the Coast Range which is doubtless the
highest peak in the Province. This mountain has been featured in the press as " Mystery
Mountain," but the Department proposes to recommend to the Geographic Board of Canada that
it be named " Mount Waddington " to commemorate the name of an early active pioneer, Alfred
Waddington, who was in 18G3 identified with a project of building a road up the Homathko
Valley from the head of Bute Inlet to the Interior. The elevation of the mountain was found
to be 13,260 feet, which is nearly 300 feet higher than any other known in British Columbia.
Coast triangulation work—that is, triangulation at or near water-level for the purpose of
tying in existing surveys and accurately defining shore-lines—was carried on at the mouth of
Rivers Inlet, in Johnstone Strait, and the various channels and inlets between Sunderland
Channel and Nodales Channel, and in Tasis Canal, on the west coast of Vancouver Island.
Photo-topographical Surveys.—Three parties were engaged during the past season on photo-
topographical surveys. One of these extended the work of the previous season in the Shuswap
Provincial Forest, covering an area in the valley of the Shuswap River and extending to the
vicinity of Sugar Lake.    Early rains in the fall somewhat hampered the work of this party.
Another party was engaged in mapping the southerly portion of the main Kettle River in
the vicinity of Rock Creek and Beaverdell, and connecting with the work of the Geological
Survey shown on their Greenwood and Beaverdell map-sheets. The work of surveying the
North Vancouver area, undertaken in 1926 in co-operation with the Greater Vancouver Water
Commission, was completed during the past season, and it is hoped by the spring of the current
year to complete a map on the scale of one-half mile to an inch of all the area bounded on the
south by Burrard Inlet, on the north by the Britannia Mineral Zone, on the west by Howe
Sound, and on the east by Indian  (North)  Arm and Indian River.
In addition to the above, a topographical survey was made in the Lillooet District, covering
some 450 square miles, comprising parts of the Green Timber Plateau, Marble Mountains, and
the Big Bar Valley.
Miscellaneous Surveys.—During the year certain other surveys which cannot be definitely
classified under the above headings were carried out by this Branch. Among these are: The
subdivision of an area on Tenth Avenue, in Point Grey, now generally known as Jericho Heights ;
the subdivision of Unit No. 2 of the University Endowment Lands; the subdivision of a small
area near Williams Lake; an investigation and check survey at Pemberton Meadows; and an
inspection of a survey near Jaffray, East Kootenay. ,
DETAILS OF FIELD-WORK.
The following paragraphs are compiled to present a resume of the work done by each of the
various parties in as short and concise a form as possible:—
John Davidson, B.C.L.S. As mentioned above, an attempt was made last year to carry a
triangulation control from Meziadin Lake to Telegraph Creek. Mr. Davidson was placed in
charge of the northerly party. He reached his base of operations, Telegraph Creek, via Wrangel,
Alaska, travelling up the Stikine River on one of the boats operated by the Barrington Transportation Company.
He commenced his work at Telegraph Creek, establishing a base-line on a bench back of
the town and connecting with a triangulation carried up the Stikine Valley during the previous
season by the Geological Survey of Canada, which latter net was connected with a net established
about twenty years ago by the International Boundary Commission. The main object of this
work was to form an additional link in the chain of triangulation along the east side oft the
Coast Range, and the connection to the Geological Survey work serves as a means of checking
back to the Coast where connection is made to the Geodetic net in Alaska, established by the ISKUT RIVER, CASSIAR DISTRICT, ISKCT,  TELEGRAPH CREEK.
.*.;       -

United States Government, and connected through to the Strait of Georgia, via the Canadian
Geodetic net along the Coast. Consequently this will permit of the work done by Mr. Davidson
being calculated on the Standard North American Datum.
This triangulation was carried south-easterly along the Telegraph Trail about 50 miles to a
point near the Bell Irving River Valley. Owing to bad weather conditions in the early fall
some of the stations at the southerly end of the net were not occupied, and although every
effort was made both by Mr. Davidson and Mr. Monckton, who was working northerly from
Meziadin Lake, the proposed junction of their work could not be effected, whereas under fair
conditions this could readily have been accomplished.
Mr. Davidson's work covered the valley of the South Fork of the Stikine River, the headwaters of the lskut River and some of its tributaries. He is engaged on the preparation of a
map of this area which will be a valuable addition to the scanty knowledge now available
regarding this district. He reports the country rugged and of slight value from an agricultural
standpoint, although small scattered areas will be available for cultivation if mining, lumbering,
or other developments should afford a market. At the present time the country is visited
almost exclusively by big-game hunting-parties which organize in Telegraph Creek. The country
apparently abounds in moose, caribou, sheep, goat, and other game, as well as fish.
P. M. Monckton, B.C.L.S. Reference has been made to Mr. Monckton as being in charge
of the party working northward from Meziadin Lake with a view to connecting with Mr.
Davidson's triangulation carried southerly from Telegraph Creek, but owing to poor weather
conditions this was not accomplished. He carried his work to the north of Bowser Lake and
obtained information to prepare a map of this area which will be invaluable in the consideration
of road and trail location and construction, railway projection, or the development of the timber
and mineral resources. The elevation of the summit of Bear River Pass was definitely determined as 2,031 feet, and the feasibility of constructing a railway through this pass, by resorting
to tunnelling for a reasonable distance, is practically assured.
Mr. Monckton found the country hard to travel through owing to dense underbrush and
the difficulty of crossing the streams, which are high and rapid during the summer months.
J. A. F. Campbell, B.C.L.S. For some years the settlers in the land settlement area east of
the Fraser River, near Prince George, have complained of their inability of locating their
boundaries for the reason that the original posts could not be found. Arrangements were
accordingly made to have these lands resurveyed during the past season under the provisions of
sections 121 to 128, inclusive, of the " Land Act." This resurvey, carried out by Mr. Campbell,
covered an area of about 21,000 acres and necessitated the running or rerunning of some 150
miles of line. Special care was taken to have the new survey monumented as permanently as
possible, and a number of corners have been marked with concrete pillars sunk beneath the
frost-line, with the tops flush with, or a few inches beneath, the surface. It is anticipated that
this survey should preclude any difficulties with regard to boundaries in this area for many
years.
F. C. Swannell, B.C.L.S. Mr. Swannell was employed on a triangulation and topographical
reconnaissance survey on an area lying directly east of the summit of the Coast Range, between
the Dean and Bella Coola Rivers. His assistant, M. H. Ramsay, B.C.L.S., in the earlier portion
of the season mapped the lower portion of the Dean River and including Sakumtha Pass, which
is an important pass from the head of Dean Channel to the lake area at the head of the Neehako
River, and through which a trail is being constructed with a view to assisting mining development in this area. The area, covered is mountainous throughout, but Mr. Swannell reports at
least 200 square miles of territory as suitable for summer sheep-range.
He also definitely identified a number of points along the route followed by Sir Alexander
Mackenzie on his historic overland expedition in 1793; chief among these is the pass through
the divide between the Dean and Bella Coola Rivers.
J. T. Underhill, B.C.L.S. During the season of 1926 Mr. Underbill was employed in running
a triangulation control from the Interior net down the Klinaklini Valley. Owing to difficulties
encountered and a canoe accident, resulting in the loss of supplies, he was unable to extend this
work to the mouth of the river at the head of Knight Inlet. During the past season he was
engaged in the completion of this gap, which covered approximately the lower 20 miles of the
river. During the course of his work Mr. Underhill was able to obtain several rays to what has
been referred to in the press as " Mystery Mountain," but which it is proposed to recommend
2 F  18 REPORT OF THE MINISTER OF LANDS, 1927.
to the Geographic Board of Canada that it be named " Mount Waddington." The elevation of
this peak has been determined as 13,260 feet, and is undoubtedly the highest mountain in the
Province.
After the completion of the Klinaklini Valley work Mr. Underhill was engaged on Coast
triangulation-work on Rivers Inlet, where he connected with previous triangulation surveys at
the southerly end of Fitzhugh Sound. Rivers Inlet is an important fishing area, several canneries
being located there.
H. H. Roberts, B.C.L.S. Mr. Roberts's work consisted of the triangulation of several
channels and inlets between Port Harvey and Nodales Channel and a portion of Johnstone
Strait. Connection was made to previous triangulations at Call Creek, Sunderland Channel,
Wellbore Channel, and Nodales Channel. Connections were also made to Geodetic stations—
'" Palmerston " on the south side of Johnstone Strait, " Victory " near Port Neville, " Bradshawe "
near Green Point Rapids, and " Valdes " on Sonora Island.
Mr. Roberts also surveyed some 400 acres of land into eight parcels at Bickley Bay on
Upper Thurlow Island. These areas consist of sandy loam with clay subsoil, broken with a
few rocky hills. It is considered that these areas will prove very productive after clearing
and cultivation.
A survey of a small area of lands reverted under the " Taxation Act " was also made by
Mr. Roberts at Shoal Bay.
G. M. Downton, B.C.L.S. Mr. Downton's work consisted of a northerly continuation of a
topographical reconnaissance in the Lillooet District commenced by him in 1926, together with
the completion of certain tracts in 1926 and which could not be filled in satisfactorily last year.
He was in the field from May 12th to August 11th, and during that period covered about 450
square miles of territory lying mainly north and west of Clinton.
The survey consisted of rapid methods of collecting at small cost all topographical details
of the area covered. Elevations were obtained chiefly by barometer based on the Pacific Great
Eastern Railway datum. All roads and trails were traversed "by stadia and compass and tied
to existing surveys. Numerous sketches and photographs were used in the preparation of the
final map, which shows contours of 100-foot intervals, and information as to the extent of
timber and grazing areas, nature of soil, water-supply, land suitable for agricultural purposes,
and hay meadows.    Existing improvements are also shown on the map.
Owing to the elevation of the country, which varies from 3,000 to 5.000 feet above sea-level,
and the dense growth of timber, mostly jack-pine and fir. there is not a great deal of agricultural
land in the area covered, but it presents good possibilities from a pastural standpoint.
O. B. N. Wilkie, B.C.L.S. The main work of Mr. Wilkie's party was located in the Trout
Lake and Arrow Lake areas. In the former vicinity he was engaged on tying in existing
mineral-claim surveys for the purpose of correcting departmental maps, which are in increasing
demand owing to the revival of interest in the mining industry. At Summit Lake, east of
Nakusp, on Arrow Lake, Mr. Wilkie laid out fifteen lots for settlement. This area, consisting
of a light clay soil, is located on a new road being constructed between Nakusp and Nelson. It
is also served by the Nakusp & Slocan Railway, and as the general elevation is only about 2,500
feet it is expected that the area will be in demand for settlement as soon as the existing reserve
on these lands is cancelled.
Mr Wilkie also surveyed a small addition to the townsite of Tulameen and other lands in
that vicinity, together with a number of other small miscellaneous surveys in the Southern
Interior.
Wm. Hallam, Jr., B.C.L.S. Mr. Hallam was employed on a triangulation control survey in
East Kootenay, his work extending from near Flagstone, on the Kootenay River, to Yahk, on
the Moyie River. Connection was made at both ends to stations of the International Boundary
Commission surveys and to recent stations established by the United States Coast and Geodetic
Survey. The control was also connected to a previous mineral monument survey made about
thirty years ago and to other points on existing surveys where possible. The results of this
work will be of great assistance in the accurate mapping of this area and serve as a basis for
future topographical and other surveys.
In the latter part of the season Mr. Hallam made au investigation and check survey of a
block of land near Jalfray. being an exception from the lands repurchased by the Crown from
the British Columbia Southern Railway Company some years ago. rt-;" '-"rt".'- '        "     :     ::

MOUNT WADDINOTON   (ELEVATION 13,260 FEET).     ELEVATION DETERMINED DURING 1927.  F. S. Clements, B.C.L.S. Mr. Clements was engaged in the extension of the triangulation
net in the Kettle River Valley for the purpose of controlling photo-topographical surveys to be
extended over this area. Owing to bad weather conditions a number of the stations established
by him were not occupied instrumentally.
E. R. Foster, B.C.L.S. Mr. Foster was engaged in carrying a control survey from Canadian
Geodetic Survey stations near Hardy Bay across Vancouver Island to Quatsino Sound and westward to Cape Scott. He met with extreme difficulties owing to clouds and fogs, and consequently
the results of his work are not as complete as was hoped for. However, a fairly rigid connection
was carried across the island which it is hoped to improve during the coming season. He also
made a survey of a small lot at Beaver Cove.
H. E. Whyte, B.C.L.S. Two years ago a survey was made of portion of Quatsino Sound
by the Hydrographic Survey of Canada, which was based on a triangulation similar to our
Coast triangulation-work. Mr. Whyte was employed to tie the stations of this triangulation to
existing surveys and to extend the triangulation over the portions of the sound not previously
triangulated.
He also co-operated with Mr. Foster in connecting the Quatsino' Sound surveys to the overland net and extending the latter southward toward Kyuquot Sound. Both Mr. White's and
Mr. Foster's work form part of a scheme of control to be carried along the west coast of
Vancouver Island based on the Geodetic Survey net along the east coast.
Mr. Whyte also made some investigations of previous surveys on Rupert Arm and at
Koprino.
W. J. H. Holmes, B.C.L.S. Mr. Holmes carried on a survey of the Coast triangulation order
extending northerly from his previous season's work in Nootka Sound, through Tahsis Canal
to its head and tying to his 1926 triangulation in Hecate Channel. His report mentions considerable fishing activity in these and adjacent waters, there being a number of salmon-canneries
and pilchard-reduction plants in this vicinity.
H. M. T. Hodgson, B.C.L.S. Mr. Hodgson was employed in extending the triangulation
established last season by the Geodetic Survey of Canada in Barkley Sound to Kennedy Lake
and Clayoquot Sound.    He reports that rain and fog interfered considerably with his work.
Fred Butterfleld, B.C.L.S. Mr. Butterfield made a subdivision of some logged-off lands on
Read Island. As these lands are accessible by a good trail from Burdwood Bay, and as each
parcel, as laid out, contains some good land as well as a plentiful supply of fresh water, they
should be fairly desirable from a settler's view-point.
Scattered surveys were also made at Carrington Bay, Seaford and Blind Channels on Cortes
Island.
On the completion of the above work Mr. Butterfield subdivided an area of about 1,040 acres
of logged-off lands at Pender Harbour. This area contains a considerable proportion of agricultural land and is shortly to be served with a road now under construction by the Public
Works Department.
Later in the season Mr. Butterfield was employed on the survey of the foreshore at Cowichan
Bay. The work here consisted of laying off water lots in front of the various ownerships along
the water-front in order that difficulties which have arisen here with regard to riparian rights
and squatters might be adjusted.
A. S. G. Musgrave, B.C.L.S. The presence of Mr. Musgrave in Kyuquot Sound on private
surveys in October was taken advantage of by the Department to have a number of small surveys
made for which there was a demand. He surveyed seven lots for home-site purposes, some of
which are small islands, and made a traverse of some 2V2 miles of shore-line for the purpose of
properly correlating his and existing surveys. On Walters Island, which contains about 60
acres, he laid out a small subdivision of ten parcels, which it was considered would be in demand
as home-sites for fishermen who frequent these waters, the island itself forming a shelter for
small boats which anchor in a cove on the lee side of this island from the prevailing winds.
G. R. Bagshawe, B.C.L.S. At Williams Lake a Government-owned lot containing 189 acres
was subdivided by Mr. Bagshawe into fourteen parcels, ranging in area from 10 to 20 acres, for
home-site purposes. He also made an investigation and correction survey in Township 45,
Cariboo District.
John Elliott, B.C.L.S. Some difficulties in the very old surveys in Pemberton Meadows, in
the vicinity of the Pacific Great Eastern, have been encountered from time to time in dealing F 20
REPORT OF THE MINISTER OF LANDS, 1927.
with rights-of-way and other applications. In order to determine the nature and extent of
the errors, Mr. Elliott was instructed to make an investigation of the surveys of this area,
which was done during the early fall of the year, when it was expected that the waters of the
river would be lowest. Early fall rains, however, interfered with this work, necessitating its
abandonment before completion.
D. M. McKay, B.C.L.S. Mr. McKay was employed during the season by the Department of
Indian Affairs on the survey of Indian reserves in the Williams Lake Agency. Advantage was
taken of his presence in the district to make certain surveys in special demand. He surveyed
seven lots containing 703 acres, in scattered locations, including Nemaia Valley, Nazko Valley,
and Kluskus Lake.
V. Schjelderup, B.C.L.S. Mr. Schjelderup was similarly employed by the Department of
Indian Affairs in the Babine Agency, and was instructed by this Department to make some
necessary surveys at the mouth of the Fulton River, on Babine Lake.
J. A. Walker, B.C.L.S. The work of subdividing the lands being developed on the University
Endowment Lands at Point Grey is done under the direction of this Branch. During the past
season Mr. Walker was employed in subdividing Unit No. 2 of this subdivision. This area
contains about 83 acres and was divided into 106 lots. Special monuments are utilized in the
marking of these surveys, consisting of brass caps set in concrete, which not only serve as
boundary monuments, but also as bench-marks for engineering purposes.
Mr. Walker also made a subdivision survey into blocks of an area on Tenth Avenue,
between Imperial and Crown Streets, which blocks were subsequently sold by tender.
L. H. Hinton, B.C.L.S. In connection with an agreement with the Grand Trunk Pacific
Development Company, as ratified by chapter 19, Statutes of 1923, the Department was required
to make a survey of an area on Kaien Island which was to be eliminated from the area to be
reconveyed to the Province.    Mr Hinton made the necessary survey during the early part of 1927.
W. G. McElhanney, B.C.L.S. Owing to a number of difficulties which arose from time to
time in connection with the survey of the foreshore of False Creek, the final adjustment of this
survey wras delayed in 1926, but as most of these difficulties have been cleared away Mr.
McElhanney, who was in charge of this work, was able to practically complete the necessary
surveys during the past year.
D. J. McGugan, B.C.L.S. District Lots 71 and 72, situated in the Municipality of Burnaby,
are owned by the Crown, and owing to an apparent demand for these lands Mr. McGugan was
instructed to make a preliminary topographical survey of same with a view to designing a
suitable subdivision.
Photo-topographical Surveys.—R. D. McCaw, B.C.L.S. The photo-topographical work in the
Shuswap Provincial Forest Reserve, commenced by Mr. McCaw in 1926, was extended farther
easterly by him during the past season, covering a total area of about 255 square miles in the
vicinity of Cherry Creek and Sugar Lake. By arrangement with the Topographical Survey of
Canada a small area lying between the Shuswap River and the southerly boundary of the
Railway Belt, just west of Mabel Lake, was covered by Mr. McCaw.
The wTork of his party was considerably retarded by adverse weather conditions making
photographic work impossible and interfering with transportation, the trails becoming impassable for pack-horses on account of heavy rains.
G. J. Jackson, B.C.L.S. Mr. Jackson's surveys comprised an area of approximately 350
square miles in the valley of the main Kettle River, extending from Westbridge to Midway.
The area covered is bounded on three sides by previous topographically surveyed areas—on the
west by Mr. McCaw's Okanagan surveys, on the south by the International Boundary surveys,
and on the east by surveys shown on the Greenwood Sheet of the Geological Survey of Canada.
In all cases the work has been correlated with previous surveys, with a view to preparing a
complete map with the least possible duplication of effort.
A. J. Campbell, B.C.L.S. A photo-topographical survey of the Greater Vancouver watershed
area was commenced in 1926, and this work was completed during the past season by Mr.
Campbell. He has gathered sufficient data to complete a map, on which he is now engaged,
covering the whole of the area between Indian Arm and Indian River on the east to Howe Sound
on the west, and extending from Burrard Inlet to the northerly boundaries of the watersheds of
Seymour and Capilano Rivers. It is expected that this map, in addition to the assistance it
will give towards the administration of the watershed area, will be in popular demand from the THE HIGHEST SUMMIT CROSSED BY SIR ALEXANDER  MACKENZIE IN  1793 BETWEEN

standpoint of varied interests, such as real estate, industries, mountaineering, and tourist trade
development. It will be the first comprehensive and detailed map of this interesting mountain
area in relation to the north shore municipalities, and should reveal to an extent impossible in
any other form the possibilities of the area both industrially and as a playground within easy
access of the citizens of Greater Vancouver, and for the annually increasing numbers of tourists.
Private Surveys.—Surveys of Crown lands and mineral claims made at the instance of and
paid for by private applicants under the provisions of the various Statutes are known as
" private surveys." There was a slight decrease in the amount of such surveys dealt with from
the previous year with regard to surveys under the " Land Act," but a large increase is shown
in mineral-claim surveys.
OFFICE-WORK.
The office staff is divided into two main sections—namely, the Survey Division and the
Geographic Division.
SURVEY DIVISION.—This Division deals with general correspondence, supplying survey
information and blue-prints, the preparation of instructions for surveys, examining field returns
and plotting official plans, compiling departmental reference maps, clearing all applications,
and other incidental work.
During the year 997 field-books were received, containing notes for 1,021 lots, and including
forty-seven field-books containing notes of traverses and control surveys. The number of lots
plotted and gazetted during the year totals 591; tracings of the plans of these lots were prepared
and forwarded to the various Government Agents. A number of surveys of reverted lands were
also dealt with by the Branch. These surveys are occasioned by the fact that frequently the
descriptions of these lands, or their definition on the ground, is imperfect, and in order to ensure
proper title it is thought advisable to make a survey before a new Crown grant is issued. In
many cases also the lands require subdivision in order to dispose of same to best advantage.
Miscellaneous tracings prepared totalled 293, while 1,705 tracings were made in duplicate
for leases and Crown grants.
A schedule of the various kinds of surveys gazetted during 1927 follows:—
Acres.
Purchase surveys  .'.     1,762.96
Mineral-claim surveys   15,694.86
Timber surveys      6,651.00
Coal-licence surveys  ..'. ,        Nil.
Lease surveys  :     5,411.45
Government surveys       8,476.57
Total   37,996.84
A comparison of these figures with those of previous years is given in Table A, attached
to this report.
Right-of-way Plans.—Plans of surveys of rights-of-way for railways, logging-railways, and
power-lines are examined and dealt with by this Division in connection with the applications of
the companies for Crown grants of the available portions. Plans of 60 miles of rights-of-way
were thus dealt with during the year.
Clearances.—During the year the Survey Division supplied clearances for various applications, as follows:—
Pre-emptions      456
Applications to purchase       216
Applications to lease       244
Coal licences   _       133
Water licences        149
Timber-sales  -    1,480
Hand-loggers' licences         68
Crown grants  _    1,255
Reversions     1.184
Cancellations   _       949
Inquiries       680 F 22
REPORT OF THE MINISTER OF LANDS, 1927
It is pointed out that a graphical record is kept of all clearances on the maps of this Branch.
In many instances it is necessary to consult numerous records to make certain that no other
interests are affected. Considerable increase is noted in the applications and inquiries regarding reverted lands. These are frequently complicated matters to deal with, requiring in many
instances considerable correspondence, mainly with the District Registrars. An indication of
the work involved is given by the number of plans and field-notes which are consulted. During
the past year there were removed for reference and replaced 38,215 documents of this description.
Departmental Reference Maps.—In order to keep a proper graphic record of all land transactions, a set of reference maps, on the scale of 1 mile to 1 inch, covering the greater portion of
the Province, is maintained by the Division. There are, in all, about 158 such maps, prepared
on tracing-linen in order that printed copies may be supplied to the public if required. They
are kept as up-to-date as far as possible with regard to geographical information and every
survey and application is plotted on as soon as received. Being continually in use and under
revision, they become worn and illegible and require frequent replacement. During the past
year seventeen new maps were prepared.
Owing to smallness of the scale of the ordinary reference maps they are unsuitable for
showing mineral-claim surveys, especially in the areas where these surveys are numerous.
Consequently the office has prepared maps on a larger scale covering the most important mineral
areas. Prints of these maps can also be supplied on application. Owing to the heavy demand
for prints of the reference maps of the Slocan area, the Department during the past year had
two of these maps reproduced by lithography. This map covers roughly the area between
Kootenay and Slocan Lakes on the east and west respectively and from the latitude of Nelson
to that of the north end of Slocan Lake. Owing to the recent revival of the mining industry in
this district the demand for this publication has been very brisk.
Information supplied.—A nominal charge is made for the preparation of copies of field-notes,
blue-prints, etc., required by surveyors, other departments of the Government, and the general
public. The revenue derived from the copying of field-notes was $917.36 and that for the blue
or ozalid prints was $3,544.74. The total number of prints was 31,139, an increase of over
10.000 from the previous year.
A new "Blue Streak" printing-machine was installed.during the year, without which this
increase could not have been handled.
Correspondence and Accounts.—During the year 6,249 letters were received and 5,342 sent
out, the latter figure not including form letters and interdepartmental memoranda.
The accounts for the field-work done under instructions and the sale of information have
been dealt with in the usual manner.
GEOGRAPHIC DIVISION.—The Geographic Division deals with the compilation and drawing of maps for lithographic reproduction, the preparation of standard base maps and the
calculations incidental thereto, the distribution of map stock, and all photostat and map-
mounting work.
During the past year a larger number of new map-sheets have been printed than for some
years previous.    The production for the year is outlined in the following schedules:—

The Queen Charlotte Islands Map is the first printed map upon detailed scale of all the
islands, and the first time it has been possible to clearly picture the available information. An
authoritative appraisal of the known resources of the various areas of these islands, and their
potential development, is furnished by the "economic " notes shown in red.
The work and practice of economic geography is becoming more widely known and of more
general use in its application. As in war-time, the work of the high command and staff of our
armies is particularly to study the past, present, and future conditions for or against successful
attack or defence; so is the work of the economic geographer for peace and general well-being
to define the conditions of prosperity and possible growth through the study of the past and the
present as a guide of what may be expected in the future. With this in view, the Queen
Charlotte Islands Map appreciations covering forest, climate, water-power, mining, grazing,
fisheries, agriculture, etc., furnish valuable reference.

Plots on the scale of 20 chains to 1 inch were made of the areas Covered by photo-
topographical surveys in the vicinity of Fire Valley and Mabel Lake east of Vernon, and
covering the valley of the main Kettle River from Beaverdell to Midway. This involved the
preparation of fifteen 10-minute quadrangle sheets.
The work of plotting the skeleton routes on the scale of 1 mile to 1 inch was continued,
nine new sheets being completed, additions and alterations being made to four other sheets.
The extension of the Provincial triangulation control system necessitated the compilation
of new S.B.M. traverse routes and the revision of certain others; in all, 900 miles of ordinary
traverse and 100 miles of railway traverse were compiled.
The recording of details of all triangulation stations established in British Columbia was
continued, and at the present date 1,170 triangulation stations have been entered in two registers,
one register being arranged alphabetically and the other in accordance with the quad-index
system.
During the past season the surveyors employed on triangulation surveys, with the exception
of those engaged on Coast trlangulation-work, were instructed to forward their field observations
for adjustment and computation by the Department. This work involves a large amount of
calculation, and it is important that in order to correlate all the work of the various surveyors
for different seasons the computing be done in a systematic manner and under uniform method.
The returns of three parties were dealt with in this way before the end of the year.
As in past years, control nets were supplied, as required, for geographic printed maps,
departmental reference maps, and to the Forestry Branch, details of which follow:—
