Dear Sir :«
Yours «&ug*6th and mine Sept.26th, Stobart station grounds.
The  Department of natural Resources are going to arrange to cancel
the townsite of Stobart. In view of this* I think it would be a good tiling
to arrange to exchange titles with the (Jivernment, giving the Givernment titleto
a road crossing in the location approved by the Board and secure from them title
to the piece which they now own*
I do not see any immediate need of a public crossing at this point,
but as our section house appears to be on the land which the Givernment own, I
think it would be a good plan to make the exchange.

T^ARTMEMT OF  JmiAN AFFAIRS,
OTTAWA,     Nov,  19,   1913.
Sir,
With reference to  your letter of the  5th  instant   I have to   inform you that  prior to  the transfer
to  this Department  of what  was formerly known  as the
neutral  strip of land lying between the  Southerly limit
of the right  of way of the Canadian Pacific Railway and
the Northerly limit  of the Blackfoot   Indian  Reserve,
as an addition to the  said KLackfoot  Reserve,  the  section
road allowance had been  drawn across the  said strip.
The track of land South of the  Stobart   Station of the
Canadian Pacific Railway was  subdivided two  years ago
for  Indian occupation.    A blue print  copy of the plan
of the  said subdivision  is  enclosed herewith.    You may
note that  the   section road allowances have been produced
into  the  Indian Reserve and  in addition to  these road
allowances another  is provided along the  Southerly limit
of the ri&ht  of way of the Canadian Pacific Railway
■ ■ <■
also  that  the  Southerly limit  of the neutral   strip  is
0 bl it e rat eji ft^
It   is evident  that  the portion of the   section
road allowance between  Sections 28 and 29,  Township 22,
Encl.    Range 2S,   W-4-M,   within the   Indian Reserve,   Should not
Messrs. Ewart,   Scott, McLaren & Kelley,
Barristers,  Etc.
Ottawa,     Ont. -2-
not be closed.    There  is no  objection  on the part
of the Department  to  the proposed deviation as  it
communicates with the  said road allowamcos along the
Southerly limit of the  Canadian Pacific Railway right
of way.     It  would be decidedly objectionable to
grant  a road alio wane* across the whole of the  said
newtral  strip;  that   is to   say for any distance past
the road allowance  along the right  of way of the
Canadian Pacific Railway as  it  would serve no  purpose
whatever.    There  is enclose herewith a blue
print   copy of the plan  forwarded with your letter
illustrating the case.
With the foregoing explanation probably the
Provincial  Government   will take the  action desired by
your company.    You will note that this Department   is
not   interested in the matter except  to  the extent  of
giving its consent to  the  closing of the  said section
road allowance  across the  right  of way of the Canadian
Pacific Railway and the  substitution of the proposed
deviation,   which consent   is hereby given.

The portion of the original road allowance which ie being

I praauma,  3m ^?arf   that  th<* Department of Public  Works ^*££ have

not  connect  in  some  way with thia road allowance.    Such connection,
however,  ^ould appear to be a natter to  be decided by the Department
of Indian Affairs.
Tho portion ©f my file dealing with this matter when the
application was made to  the Board in 1910 was lest by &ur former

I think  I arn quite correct   in  stating,  however,  that the

Dear Sir:-
" WINNIPEG, MAM
Stobart Road Diversion, Your Ref. G-
In reply to your letter of the 27th ulto.  Our Ottawa
Agents have taken this matter up with the Department of Indian
Affairs and have advised as follows:-
"Mr. Bray thinks that the Department will be quite
satisfied to convey to the Province for the purpose of a
public road the portion of the proposed road running across the
strip of land which was formerly Dominion lands but which was som e
years ago added to the Black foot Indian Reserve, but he thinks
that as a term of this the Province should transfer to the
Department the corresponding portion of the road which is being
closed up. We gather from the plans that this corresponding
portion has not so far been closed but apparently it will serve
no purpose in being left open north to the station grounds and
Mr. Bray thinks* as we say, that it should be closed and transfer..
red to the Department in lieu of the portion of the Indian
Reserve in question.
Mr. Bray is somewhat at a loss to understand why this
proposed road should b§ carried just as Car as indicated and
no further. lou will observe that while the strip of land
across which it runs was at one time a strip of Dominion land
lying between the northerly boundary of the reserve and the
southerly boundary of the Company*s property, it is now added
to the reserve and there is no distinction at present between
that portion and any other portion of the reserve. Mr. Bray
thinks that the proper way to have done would have been to
have carried this road all the way to connect with the road
being closed and then close the portion of the old road thus
cut, off.  However, we do not think he will insist on this ~3~
_ being  done but will  recommend the transfer of the piece now in
question provided,   as we  say,   the corresponding piece of th e
old  road is  conveyed to  the  Department.*
Kindly  advise  as  to Mr.  Bray*s   request to have the
portion of the original  road allowance conveyed to his  Department
in exchange.

cancel those two letter and take the laatter up In accordance vjith
the followingf-
Ehis Diversion was approver' by the Boatd under Order
Ho* 12238 dated the 11th Hoventber 1910. Plan upon which the order
issued showed the diversion extending across the station grounds and
across the strip of land between the Southerly boundary of the station
grounds and the northern boundary of the Reserve, The  matter of
transferring title to the Province for this diversion K&6 obtaining
conveyance from the Province of the portion of the original road
allowance closed was left in abeyance awaiting survey, plans and
descriptions of which only came to hand recently* I ohtrined. execution
of transfer by the Company in favor of the Province covering the portion
of the diversion within the property o^vnefl by the Company and forwarded
seme to the Department of Public -orks advising that Department that
the projection of this diversion across the strip of land controlled
by the Department of Indian Affairs ted better be taken up direct - 2 -
by that Department with the Indian Agent, on account of the Indian
Department*s objection to opening highways leading to the Indian
Reserve* The Department of Public Torks, however insist that the
Company obtain and furnish it with e  transfer eoverir      projection
of the diversion serosa the said Btrip 8.n3  refuse to convey to us
the portion of the original ror.d allowance closed until this is
done, I had Mr. Osborne, Local Right of Way Agent, 0Slg»ry, Interview
the Indian Agent, at Glelehen, in this connection for the purpose of
getting his recommendation to the Department at Ottawa to arrenge  the
ne OSS sary conveyance, but the seid Agent is adverse, to having the
diversion opened to the northerly limit of the reserve. The -Agent
also appears to be in doubt as to whether the Department of Indian Affai
controll the strip referred to or not. I would therefore request thst
you take tho matter up with the Department and ascertain as to the
Ownership of the strip referred to f and if the Department of Indian
Affairs controll same arrange to get conveyance of the necessary
lend in favor of the Province. Shis will of course involve the getting
of the consent of the Department of Indian Affairs to the Diversion
being opened to the northerly limit of the reserve. We will have to
get this consent in any event whether the Department of Indian Affairs
cont oil thft strip of land or not.
It will of course serve the Company's lntor&st jiist as well fo CANADIAN    PACIFIC    RAILWAY   COMPANY.

If the  diversion is made  to terminate  at the  South

Herewith I enclose plan showing proposed diversic|
of highway, Section 28 - 22 - 25 West 4th.     this diversion
arranged in order to obtain extension of Stobart Station Grouncs.
You will note from the plan that there is 8 strip of land 164 feet
between the right of way and the northern boundary of the Indian
Reserve*    I am under the impression that this strip was recently
transferred to the Department of Indian Affairs.    The Indian
Agent is objecting to the crossing being put in, as they do not
wish to hrve access from the reserve at this point.     Kinflly
hf    . Scott take this matter up  with the Depart ent of Indirn

to has been transferred to that Department by the Department of the

DearcSir,-
Re. Stobart Road Diversion.
Your file G. 887.
This  matter has beenr discussed with the Indian
Agent at Gleichen, and he is averse to having the road allowances
or the diversion opened to the limits of the Indian Reserve.  Of
course, #rom our point of view, it would be distinctly advantageous
if we could have the road allowance closed without the need of a
diversion at all, but the question hinges on who controlls the
strip of land 164 feet wide between the Indian Reserve and the
South Westerly boundary of the right of way.
I have taken it up with the Land Titles Office, and the
Dept. Public Works, neither of which office are able to say who
has title to this 164 foot strip.
I return the tracings, etc., and Mr. Talbot suggests that
the matter be taken up with Ottawa to ascertain the ownership of
this 164 foot strip, that is to say, whether it stands in the P# McP. laq...  contd.
Indian Dept., or in the Crown, and without the jurisdiction o]
the Indian ©ept.3

28thf and copy of further letter from Mr. Oharlesworth
of July 4th.    So far as I am aware the strip of land

by the Department of Indian Affaire.    1 would be glad
■if you would have the matter taken up at the first
opportunity ^ith the Indian Agent at Gleichen, and providing
he is agreeable to having the crossing referred to opened to
the northerly limit of the reserve,arrange to secure hie
recommendation that the land across the strip referred to
be provided for the purpose of this highway.       When
the matter was submitted to the Railway Commission ih 1910
a plan furnished the Board showed this crossing to extend
to the northerly limit of the reserve, but mj  file in this
connection was lost by* Mr. UcPhillipe, and I have no record
that the Department of Indian Affairs was ever consulte
About a year ago that Department made  serious objection to J.G.C. Ho, £
the Company opening highways leading to the reserve without
its consent.

the matter up with the Indian Ageat.

Sir:
:'d
ff WIN W 2 F Bit  M_a.ll
I have to acknowledge receipt of your letter
of the 28th ult.t in connection with road diversion at Stobart.
In reply I would say that we have no information to show whether
the strip of land lying between the north boundary of the Black-
foot Indian Reserve and the sftuth boundary of your Company's right
of-way at this point is owned by the Department of Indian Affairs,
and hardly think that this is the case. In any event the original
road allowance which it is proposed to close in favour of your
Company extended to the northerly limit of the Reserve and the
evident intention of the diversion is to take the place of this
road allowance, and to do so it is necessary that it should be
extended to the nlrtherly limit of the reserve. We are aware that
the Indian Department in some cases object to the opening of highways across their reserves but in this case we are not doing so.
There is, however, a certain amount of traffic which leaves the
reserve at this point and unless this diversion was produefed
across to the northerly limit of the reserve there would be no
outlet. It appears that the obtaining of transfer for this -
further portion is a matter that should be looked after by your
Company, and I am accordingly again returning the transfer
enclosed in your letter. ^^^^

properly handled when application was made to the Board in 1110,
as although our plan which was submitted t© the Board shews the
eressing to extend to the northerly boundary of the Indian Reserve,
yet no consent was ever obtained from the Department of Indian
Affairs to this highway being opened. Afceut a year ago th-
Department of Indian Affairs complained rather strongly to the
o
Railway Company a%out   such highways fceing opened without  consent of
that Department. I would therefore,   suggest that you 3J^mr%h%

Sir:
I have to acknowledge receipt of your letter
of the 13th inst., enclosing copy of townsite plan of subdivision
of Stobart, also transfer in favour of his Majesty The King for
crossing over the station grounds being an extension of First
Street• As far as the extension of First Street is eoneerned this
is probably correct and agrees with the plan covered by the Order
of the Board of Railway Commissioners #12238, but as no distances
were shown on this plan it is impossible to check same without
going over the ground* The transfer,however,does not go far enough
for while it covers the area required for diversion within station
grounds it does not give any Connection to the north boundary of
the Blackfoot Indian Reserve which is necessary,
I am therefore, returning transfer herewith in
order that it may be amended to cover diversion as far as the north
boundary of the reserve.

The land Department have apparently laid out a

station grounds for s street.    Ireceived no advice of this
until recently when the question of highway diversion came up.
I do not hold title to the station grounds, but only hold a
Certificate of reservation fron the Lend Department.
This is only another instance in support of
my  contention,that title to all lands required by the Operating
Department should be turned over from tho Land Department.

Replying to yours of February 3rd, your

road dTv&^sion was ever made by this Department.  The road
diversion as shewn on the sketch forwarded by you, which I

in our townsite, in fact the road leading across the Railway
is practically the extension South Westerly of First Street
as shewn on our registered plan Ho 396.^
I do not understand why this road should be
opened up as there is absolutely no traffic across the railway
at this point.  However if the Board of Railway Commissioners
saw fit to aporove of it, it is not for us to object.

requesting transfer in favour of your Company of portion of the
original road allowance between sections 28 and 29, Tp.22~23~4.
In reply I may say that the diversion approved under Order of the

but covers a diversion wholly within station grounds, and
returning to the boundary of the Blackfoot Indian Reserve.

Dear Sir:-    Re Stobart,.,r Your, file 1955.
Referring to yours of the 8th. instant*- I note
that the proposed enossing as shewn on the tracing plan which
accompanied my letter of F* ruary 3rd., is the extension of
First Street as shewn on your registered plan.
1 also note your resnarK as to there being no
traffic across the Railway, but that if the Board of Railway
Commissioners approved the crossing, it is not for us to
object.  In this connection, 1 would state that I am not
aware whether the Board have approved the crossing or not.
TK^ order *ftjch issued in this connection provided for the
diversion, but does not refer to any crossing.  1 am writing
to Medicine Hat to get a copy of the plan,which was filed
with the Board under the above order, to ascertain tfhether
it showed this crossing or not.
I would also point out to you that 1 hold Certificate
of reservation aigacd by the Land Department, Calgary, dated ( 2 )
August 29th./OB. According to which there was reserved for
the use of the Operating Department, a strip of land 250
feat in width, North of and adjoining the Northerly limit
of Right of Way in the S. W. of 28 ~ 22 ~ S3 - West 4th,
the length of this strip being 1500 feet mear-ured South
Easterly along the Northerly limit of Right of Way from It*
intersection with the West boundary of said quarter section.
fhe roadway shewn on your plan of subdivision as Firtt Avenue
encroaches on the land which wan reserved, and I beg to state
that lands reserved for the Operating Department should not
subsequently be appropriated for the use of the Land Department,
without the Operating Department being notified.  I have no
record of having received any notification in this connection,
e.ltbon^h tiart of my fila was lost come time ago by Mr.
McPhillips. I do not think, however, that any notification
of this encroachment was. sent thin Department, because, had
I Known that the Land Department were laying out c.  Townsite
showing thie roadway, I would not have incurred the expense
of survey by a Dominion Land Surveyor.  1 have no record whatever
$f having dealt with application to the Board in this connection ( 3 )
and was under the impression that the Land Department at
Calgary may have dealt with the matter*
Will you Sindiy see that in all cares,where property
reserved for the Operating Department li required for any
other purpose'|that the matter is either brought to my attention
or to the attention of Mr. J. G. Osborne, Local Right of Way
Agent, Calgary.

boar  Sir:*-
1 enclose herewith a plan of road diversion at
Stobart, prepared by C, D. Brown, D.L.S,  I find that the
Land Department filed a a .ian of subdivision which was
A
registered as Ho. 396 X and wfeicb. shows this diversion, but
it doer not show the diversion crossing the Rail>    t the
South Easterly limit of the sxtra land in the name manner
shewn on the tracing here.  I find., an order of the Board
issued authorizing this diversion in accordance with plan
filed with the Board as Ho. 16114.  I assume this is the plan
of the Sownsite, but in the absence of definite in formation
1 am writing you to ascertain if thia is the case. She
application to the Board in connection with this diversion was
not made through this Department and I am, therefore, assuming
your Department is familiar with the transaction.
With regard to the crossing over the Railway leading
to the Indian Reserve as shewn on the tracing plan herewith.
I beg to state that about a year ago the Department of Indian ( 2 )
Mb a   Duff, Esq*
Affairs raised considerable objection to the Ctempany opening
roads leading to the Reserve, which resulted in cattle straying
over the Reserve much to the annoyance of the Department.
I find in taking this matter up with the Operating Offices
at (Jaigary thrt thero is no record of the consent of the
Department having been obtained to a crossing as shewn on the
tracing herewith.  Before doing anything further I would like
to be advised whether your Department has had this question
up with the Department of Indian Affairs.  If so, has approval
been obtained?
I would also like to be advised whether the road
allowance between Sections 38 and 29 (within the limits of the
Right of Hay and Station Grounds) have been closed and conveyed
to the Company,  If not, please say whether your Department
is attending to this.  Shis matter has bean outstanding for
about two years "awaiting a D.L.S, survey, plans of ^hich have
only recently been received by me.
Kindly let me hear from you on the points above
mentioned as early as possible.

Re:- Road Diversion Stobart.
Your File G. IXB 887.
Replying to yours of the 10th inst., on the above
matter.    This matter was first brought to your notice
by Mr* Price sending you plans for application the Board in
August 1910.  You wrote Mr. Price for consents from the
Department Public Works and these were sent you by Mr. Price
in October of that year.
Apparently application was made to the Board as
Order No. 12238, was issued covering the diversion and an
extra track across the Road allowance between sections
28 and 29.  I enclose you herewith blue print copy of same
for your information.
There is nothing on file to shew that i^osGrneefit
4$ the Indian Dept was ever consulted in the matter.
Upon searching title I find that the C.P.R., has
registered a plan 396 X Stobart and the NOrthEast bbundary
of the Road on the North East side of the Right-of-Way scales
approximately the same distance from the centre line as in
Mr. Browns tracing returned herewith namely 350! XIX
Plan No. 396 X of course does not shew the Diversion.
Trusting this is the information your require and
returning the tracings enclosed with your letter,

from the cases you cite.  In this case there is a new track
being constructed across the old road allowance, and a diversion
of the road which appears to be in the intereat of the Company

to have madej tint Otilirf cases referred to in your letter dealt
with a »€W crossing being opened up across the old main line

be of any advantage to the Company.

Re proposed t iversion at Stobart,
:rencc fcer to
last,! bug tc ;nt of the
Director of Survey*, Department Public wo rice, Edmonton, to tiie
road diversion at Stobart,subject to certain c    ions .:i_ich th
Ooiapany has undertaken tc fb.Mil.
This application raises the old question as to whether or n
the Railway Company can make application- to the./Board of B&ilway
Commissioners for an order authorising a road crossing*
Your position has al    been that the Company has, no right to
make such.application and that they should be made by the Depart
ment of Public Works for the province in vfelah the crossing is
situated.  The Public Works "Department Officials claim that as
the diversion is made at the request of the Railway^ Company and
that all they should do is ;e give their consent.
I would point out that such applications are constantly made by
the Grand Trunk Pacific and have also been made by the S.P.K*
Company where the diversion is on a line under construction.
If yeu are still of the opinion that these applications should 26/lQ/lQ*
H.I. (2)
he  made by tbe Dej       of Public Works, pleaee return the
plans which were sent you on the 16th September last,during my
absence from, the Office* and I will again take up. the matter
with the Department' of Public Works.
Of course tha arrangements necessary for the transfer
of the land for the road diversion,tho closing of the original
road allowance and conveyance of tft* land thereby affected,must
dealt v/itii through the Department of Public Works.   This
matter is receiving attention*
