Note. From Spirit River and Grand Prairie to Findlay forks the Stewart route would be identical woth the Peace River route but from Findlay forks (or Mount Selwyn) the line would run through a new terriotory tp Stewart, the direction of which would be somewhat tortuous, on account of crossing several minor summits. The construction costs would be semi-mountainous.
