"Canadian Pacific Telegraph Company"
Announced 01 August 1900
Messrs. James Kent and B S Jenkins of the Canadian Pacific Telegraph Company, have recently completed their tour inspection covering the entire CPR circuit from the east to the west coast. A careful examination of the telegraph system in British Columbia especailly throughout the Kootenay and along to Victoria were of special concern and interest. Mr Kent notes that, "When this season's work is finished, we will have a new line between Laggan and Fort William. We have been doing so many miles each year, and now we have completed that distance, besides accomplishing several hundred miles of renewals on the Pacific Division. Additional wire facilities to the extent of one-thousand miles will be provided this year alone."
