Mr. KENNEDY:

There are three or four of them in the Peace River district. In connection with those districts there may be twenty-five or fifty families living from twenty to thirty miles from a post office. One applicant received. the reply that it would be too expensive to supply mail routes for those localities. I will admit the roads are not paved highways, but it seems to me that when there are about fifty settlers living twenty-five miles from a post office there should be some sort, of mail service. I think they have the right to expect this country to undertake development in their districts.
