The spiritual growth of the Diocese has not lagged far behind its material development."--Report of the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel, etc., for 1892. Atert Bay School, (No. 1 on the list of British Columbia Schools).--"At Alert Bay, and throughout the Kwawkewith Agency, the natives are looking forward anxiously to the time when they may be able to send their children to the school which is in course of construction at that place, and which is expected to be ready for the reception of pupils before the close of the year 1892."--Report of Mr. A. W. Vowell, Visiting Indian Superintendent, Victoria, B.C. "A new church is being built by the Rev. A. J. Hall, Church Missionary Society, which, when completed, will no doubt prove a further means of improving the condition of these Indians, and will also be an ornament to the Bay....... "In March I visited the school of the Tsa-waw-ti-eneuh Tribe, at Gwa-yas-dums, where Mr. A. W. Corker is teacher. The attendance was very good and the children attentive, and had made some progress since last year, though they had been away for six months at their summer village at Kwa-ee. After school they engaged in a game of football; nearly all the village joined most heartily in the game, which is capital exercise for them.... "The conduct of the Indians during the last twelve months has been very good, at times they have obtained more or less liquor, but in the spring a number of young men under Mr. A. W. Corker formed a Temperance Society, which has over forty members, and this has been of great assistance in checking the liquor traffic."--Report of Mr. R. H. Pidcock, Indian Agent, Alert Bay, B.C.
