This letter informs the Governor General of the opening of the railroad station at Toukoto and the transfer of the "magasin du Service Locale" (local government warehouse) from Badumbé to Toukoto.
(p6) The railroad had 850 workers in the vicinity of Kayes, 300 near Bafoulabé, and 3250 near Kita, for a total of 4400.
(p7) The Service colonial employs an additional 450 "hommes conducteurs" (animal drivers) and 450 mules.
This provides some figures for the size of worker rations. Railroad workers received one kilogram of millet and 0.015 grams of salt each day. Conducteurs d'animaux (animal drivers) got one kilogram of millet and 0.300 grams of meat per day. Mules got 4 kilograms of millet and 0.020 grams of salt.
This file contains a series of documents that consist of a questionaire distributed by the Gouverneur General to various commercial houses. The Governor-General wanted their opinion regarding the new system of provisioning the "Compagnie de Conducteurs et la Génié" through the use of a bidding system.
This is a list of the companies that responded to the questionaire and the name of the company's agent in Kayes.
