Pass no. 4, issued for 1898 to HA Jackson, traveling agent for Great Northern Railway Company. Preprinted signature of the president. Black and red print on tan cardstock. Countersigned on reverse by Robert Irving and Jackson. Some paper loss on reverse. This line was a narrow-gauge railway between Kaslo, Slocan, and the mining community of Sandon in the Kootenay region of British Columbia between 1895 and 1955. After silver was discovered near Sandon in 1891, the Great Northern Railway and the Canadian Pacific Railway sought to build a line out to the mines. The Kaslo & Slocan Railway competed with the CPR's Nakusp and Slocan for the ore from the mines. On December 16, 1895, crews from the Kaslo and Slocan demolished the station the CPR had just built on land disputed between the two railways. Both railways competed with building spurs to service mines in order to obtain ore traffic destined for the other railway.
