-with the surveyor's notes and descriptions. As you are aware, one of the mam objects
the company has in view in laying oat the land required at suoh places, is to prevent
squatters taking possession and erecting taverns and other objectionable buildings in
close proximity to the railway. This is particularly necessary in these two instances.
They will be places of popular resort for tourists and it is important that the company should be in a position to prevent the establishment of such objectionable places
as I have referred to.
I shall be obliged if you can give this application early consideration.
Yours truly,

certain quantities of land at Glacier and Griffin Lake Stations, in British Columbia,
that as these are being made, at the expense of the company, attractive places of

these places are bemg made, at the expense of the company, attractive places of

the company for lands at Donald, that is to say, that so much of the area, in each

25th and 28th ultimo, you were advised that the lease of the 160 acres which have*
been allotted to the Canadian Pacific Railway Company, for station purposes, at
Banff, was being prepared.
I have now'to state that it was a printed form of the lease which is to be Used
for lands within the Rocky Mountains Park of Canada, which was being prepared,
and that a supply of such form was only received by this department from the Government Printing Office on the 13th instant.
Although Mr. G. M. Clark, the solicitor of your 'company, has already approved
of a draft of such >form as being satisfadtory to the company in so far as relates to its
mSe for the tract within the park which has been allotted to tbe company for the pur-
poses of their hotel at that place, it is deemed advisable, before preparing the 'lease
for the lands to be used for station purposes, to submit to Mr. Clark a copy of the
form of lease which it is intended to issue to the oompany for titfeh lands.
I am, therefore, directed to enclose a copy of the form in question herewith, andl
to remind you that this action is also in accordance with your own suggestion.

My Dear Sir,—I notice that you advertise the sale of town lots at Golden, B.C.,
on the 15th September. How will this affect our application now before the Department for station grounds, &c. ? We have been under the impression that you would
deal with this town site in the same way as was done with Donald, give us a sufficient area for railway purposes, and sell us the re6t at $2.50 an acre, , It would be
far more satisfactory if this were done, as we are in a better position than the
Government to keep out whiskey s<Hers and bad characters generally. Will you
kindly let me know what the chances are ? It is very desirable, under any circumstances, that our application now in should be dealt with before the sale takes place.
Tours truly,
C. DRINKWATER, Secretary.

told to be careful not to sell anything inside the reservation which covers the lands
applied for by the company as marked on the plan of the town of Golden prepared
for the purpose of sale.
I enclose you a copy of that plan.
The decision to hold a public sale of town lots at Golden was authorized by the

considered advisable to let the existing arrangement stand.
