E. F. STEPHENSON,

Crown Timber Agent.

CROWN TIMBER OFFICE,

WINNIPEG, 31st October, 1887.

EDMONTON CROWN TIMBER AGENCY.

DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR,

CROWN TIMBER OFFICE,

EDMONTON, 1st November, 1887. SIR, - I have the honor to enclose the annual statements of my office, which show a continued and marked improvement over last year.

The quantity of sawn lumber is 1,400,379 feet, being an increase of 439,058, as compared with last year.

The local demand which I took notice of in my last returns, has been stoadily increasing, and at the present time is greater than it has ever been before, and there is every prospect of its increasing.

Messrs. Moore & Macdowall have purchased Mr. John Kelly's mill and timber berth, situated adjoining the limit owned by them, and I have no doubt they will put now life into the milling business, and next year a much larger quantity will be marketed than heretofore.

There has also been a large increase in the correspondence of this office.

The crops are turning out much better than was at one time expected, the frost we had in August having only injured the wheat.

I have the honor to be, Sir,
Your obedient servant,
THOS, ANDERSON,

Crown Timber Agent.
The Secretary
Department of the Interior,

Ottawa.
