“Another route is now being explored between Telegraph Creek and Teslin Lake and will soon be opened.  Telegraph Creek is the head of steamer navigation on the Stikine River and is about 150 miles from Teslin Lake.  The Yukon is navigable for steamers from its mouth to Teslin Lake, a distance of 2,300 miles.  A road is being located by the Dominion Government.  A grant of $2,000 has been made by the province of British Columbia for opening it.
