(From the Victoria Colonist-Artlole II.)
The resources t>f British Columbia are very diversified. All the
chief industrial pursuit* of man-
kiud can be carried on here successfully. There are agriculture, stock-
raising, mining, lumbering, fishing
and munufacturing. Of few individual stales, provinces, colonies or
even countries can this be claimed.
In addition, the geographical position of the province is such that it
must play an exceedingly important part in the commercial development of the Pacitic Ocean. A
little space may be well devoted to
a consideration of this aspect of the
The   continents   of   Asia   and
America  converge   towards   each
other as they approach  the north,
so that at Behring Strait they are
only 36 miles apart.   The convergence ie greater than is indicated
by   the   difference   in   longitude.
Thus the longitude of San  Fran-
cisoo, Cal., is 122 deg. 34 mill. West,
and that of Port Simpson, the most
northerly port in British Columbia,
is 130 deg. 20 roiri. West, but owing to the shortening of degrees of
longitude towards the North, the
difference in distance between these
two points and Yokohama, is nearly 700 miles in favor of the British
Columbia port.   The difference between the distance of more southerly ports in British Columbia from
Yokohama and that of San Francisco is somewhat less than  this,
but it is sufficient to give our coast a
great advantage   when   the time]
comes for time to be a governing el'
cmeiit in the trans-Pacific trade.
This advantage holds good not only fir the coast, but also  for the
productive interior of North America and for European traffic, which
may  seek a  western route to the
Orient or Oriental   trade,   which
may traverse America in order to
reach Europe. From San Francisco
to New York the distance hy rail is
3,331 miles, and from New York to
Liverpool 3,130 miles, which makes
the distance   from Yokohama to
Liverpool via San Francisco 10,931
miles. The distance via Vancouver
and Montreal is over 700 miles less
than this.   But there is a shorter
route than either of these across the
continent of North America, and
that is the most northerly route of
all, namely from Port Simpson to
Fort Churchill on Hudson's Bay
and thence to Liverpool.    From
Port Simpson to Fort Churchill is
1,450 miles, and from Fort Churchill to Liverpool 2,960 miles.   Adding to these the 3,865 miles between
Yokohama and Port Simpson, we
have the distance between Yokohama and Liverpool reduced to 8,275
miles, a difference of 2,678 miles in
favor of the Port Simpson-Hudson's
Bay route over that via San Francisco and New York. In an article,
which will be printed in tomorrow's
Colonist from the pen of Mr. E. J.
Clarke, one of the staff of the paper
who bas given much study to the
Hudson's Bay route, many interesting and valuable data in regard to
this subject are given, and to these
the reader is referred.   Even without taking into consideration the[sition
Hudson's Bay route, and relying
upon a land route to the Atlantic,
the distal^ from Japan to Europe
will be much less via British Co
lumbin ports than by any other
possible route.
An immense business is likely to
be developed between America and
Siberia. Vladivostock is the eastern
terminus of the trans-Siberian railway. During a portion of the yeur
the approach to this harbor is obstructed by ice, but for the greater
part of the year it is as easily accessible as any harbor in the world.
It is little if any further from British Columbia ports to Vladivostock
than from those ports to Yokohama, but from San Francisco to
Yokohama it is several hundred
miles further. The reason of the
great difference, is steamerB from
British Columbia will pass around
the northern end of Japan.
If in this connection we turn our
attention tn the great producing
belt of the North American continent, that is the portion of the continent which will produce what the
Orient will purchase, and will purchase what the Orient will export,
we will see that it is more readily
accessible from the British Columbia coast than from San Francisco.
The great tier of states which
stretches across the continent im
mediately south of the International boundary, with the exception of
those in the extreme west, can be
better served, so far as Oriental
traffic goes, from British Columbia
ports than from any in the United
States, and this is true of the whole
Atlantic seaboard states. It is
necessarily true of all of Canada.
A further recommendation to the
northerly routes is that the height
of land to be overcome by railways
ieless than towards the south.
There ia a growing commerce between Canada and the Australasian
colonies, the full development of
which is yet far from being realized. When reference is made to the
varioun products of British Columbia, mention will be made of thej
lines in which trade can be profita
bly done with that part of the
world. The distance from Victoria
to Sydney, N. S. W., iB 6,754 miles.
British Columbia has an almost
innumerable number of excellent
harbors. No one can tell how many
there are, which are fully equal to
the demands of ocean-borne commerce. They are at all times absolutely free from obstruction by ice.
It is obvious that on this phase
of the subject nil that can be done
is to point out the salient facts.
The inferences from them must be
left to each reader. We have shown
above sufficient data to warrant the
claim that for the prosecution of
commerce on the Pacific ocean,
British Columbia is exceptionally well situated, and it is only
necessary to add that the magnitude of this commerce is certain to
be enormous, and that in the long
run the facts of physical geography
control the avenues of trade. Undoubtedly among the most important recommendations which this
province has to those who desire to
settle or invest in a couutry whose
prosperity will rest upon a permanent basis, is ita geographical po-
Local News Proa Abroad.
Engineer Anderson, of the Cascade Water Power and Light company was in Greenwood last week,
and being pursued by the ubiquitous reporter, gave the following
information, according to the
Greenwood Times: "So far practically tbe whole of the local works,
including the dam have been completed at a cost of about $115,000.
The first installation of machinery
will consist of three turbines of
1000 horse power each.
In order to guarantee the utmost
efficiency, the company will erect
two independent lines for the transmission of the power to its customers. As soon as the first 2000
horse power has been contracted
for, four more turbines will be installed to bring the full efficiency
up to 6000 horse power. The estimate for the installation of the first
2000 is $433,135, while to bring the
efficiency up to 6000, a further estimated expenditure of 1431,210

James Wilks who was iu attendance upon the annual convention
of the Western Federation of Miners, bas returned. He says there-
were some 150 delegates present,

in its history. The following were
elected officers and members of the

Denver, secretary-treasurer; John
C. Williams. Grass Valley, California, John Kelly, Burke, Idaho;
Phillip Bowden, Butte, Mont.;
Thomas J. Sullivan, Leadville.

John H. Murphy of Denver, author'
of the eight hour law, as attorney
for the organization. The Miner's

Were tlie matter of government road and trail appropriations taken up by the various
boards of trade in their several
districts, and an honest effort
made by them to assist the
government in distinguishing
"between the appeal of worthy
citizens for a needed improvement and the efforts of political grafters, much money now
wasted would be saved, and
road conditions would be much
improved over their present
state. At the meeting of the
Cascade board of trade on the
ioth instant, a resolution was
passed instructing its secretary to correspond with other
boards in the interior distriot
with a view of bringing this
subject before these bodies for
discussion, and to obtain united actiou by them.
In every community there
are those who are keeping a
close watch on the government pie counter for the
crumbs that might be made to
fall their way. They are ever
ready to advise the government where to vote money for
improvements, and nine times
out of ten they are the principal beneficiaries. These boards
of trade, acting as the reflectors of public opinion and sentiment in their J localities,
would be much more apt to direct the government in the
right course, than an individual who makes politics his
study. We think the Cascade
board of trade has taken a step
in the right direotion, and
hope to see it seconded by all
the other boards of the inland

Two Serlotu Accident! at Orand Forki.
Two serious accidents occurred at
the steam laundry in Grand Forks
when Mrs. Dan O'Rea and Jake
Stover were seriously injured. Mrs.
O'Rea was caught in the mangle
and her arm drawn into the machine. Before the machinery could
be Btopped her hand and arm had
been drawn under the roller and
crushed to pulp. Her hand was
forced tight up against the steam
box and the flesh literally roasted
before the hand could be extricated. The Doctor fears that amputation will he necessary to save the
rest of the arm. The other victim,
Jake Stover, slipped and fell from
a ladder. On the top of the ladder
were iron hooks and one of these
struck Stover's head, cutting his
face so badly that ten stitches had
to be taken in dressing the wound.

It is told that a man was called
to the telephone to receive a message. He asked of the telephone
girl who called him, she- replying
that she thought it was his wife
who wanted to talk with him. He
went to the phone and putting it to
his ear just as a lurid flash of
lightning occurred was knocked
down by the shock. Rising, he
said: "Yes, its my wife; just like
her." Commander Tilley, of the

of the United States portion of Samoa, was banged on the head and
robbed of his watch and money in
San Francisco the day that he returned, and immediately recognized
the fact that he was home again.

The remaining 40 feet of rock

Hon. Smith Curtis was in the

as to (heir wishes and actual needs
in the line of legislation. He told
The Record that the matter of the
Texas Point road to the head of
Christina lake would be looked into
and provided for at the next regular session. He said in the matter
of roads and trails, he acted on this
basis, that a bona fide shipping mine
was entitled to government aid in
building a wagon road over which
to transport its ore, and that prospectors should be aided in obtaining passable trails into the districts
where they toiled devotedly not only
in their individual interest, but for
the benefit of the great mining industry of the province generally.
One thing is patent, that our representative is anxious to serve his
constituents faithfully, and for that
reason travels extensively among
them that he may be the better informed as to present conditions and
know what they should he so far an
required legislation is concerned,
and his supporters have the utmost
confidence in his integrity of purpose and ability.

The Spokesman-Review says:
There was a persistent rumor in
the city yesterday that the contract
had been let for the construction of
the Great Northern branch to Republic.
A St. Paul special reads :
June 20.���The chief engineer's
office of the Great Northern says
the contract for the Republic branch
has not yet been awarded.   Vice-
President Miller will return in a
day or two when it is said the papers will be signed.
A special from Marcus, sayB :
The arrival of two Great Northern railway contractors has led to
many rumors thai work on the road
from this place to Republic is Boon
to begin. Although there seems to
be nothing definite to be learned
here, it is the general impression
that the road has been fully decided
upon, and that work on it will begin in a short time.
This much is certain, the surveys
have been csmpleted and have for
several days been at St. Paul waiting orders from President Hill to
give orders to start work. Hill is
said to be on a fishing trip on the
coast of Labrador.
A Grand Forks dispatch to the
the Rossland Miner states that J.
F. Stevens, chief engineer of the
Great Northern, will reach Marcus
to-morrow (21st) for the purpose of
being present at the commencement
of construction work on the proposed railway from Marcus to
Vancouver. The Canadian section
of the line is known as the V. V. &
E. Ry., and a branch from Curlew,
Wash., will be extended to Republic.
J. H. Kennedy, chief engineer of
the V. V. & E., states that the line
has been located to a point 20 miles
west of Midway. There is an unconfirmed report in circulation that
Peter Simms has been awarded the
contract for the section between the
Columbia river and Cascade.

Skagway heralded the arrival nf
the Canadian Pacific Navigation
Company'* steamship Islander in
its port on its first trip, by the following glowing report, which appeared on the front page of the
"Daily Alaskan:"
"Sunday afternoon half of the
population of Skagway accepted
the oordial invitation of Captain
Foot to inspect the steamship
IslanHer. Captain Foot was personally in ohargeand he war very solicitous to see that everybody had
a chance to see the fine ship and
partake of the good thing*. He was
most ably assisted by Agent Dunn
Mr. Pumphrey and every member
of the crew. They were all just as
.polite and attentive a* though
those aboard had paid their hard
cash to be taken care of.
It would be difficult to give an
accurate description' of the vessel
and her appointments, without going into the minutest details. The
. ship's exterior is well remembered
by many Skagwayana, but the interior has been so, completely
-changed that it was absolutely unrecognizable yesterday. The fittings
are most elaborate and the decorations are all of artistic merit, and
present a harmony of view which
i is indescribably grand.
The dining saloon is exceptionally large for a ship of the proportions of the Islander. Its finish
-could scarcely be finer, it would
seem. The furnishings of the ladies'
-cabin, the lounging room and other
parts are of the finest. One of tbe
attraction* which is always looked
for by the sea traveller is a chance
���to promenade. The Islander'* cabin
ia so located that a splendid walk
oan be had around it.
But it is in the state rooms where
the well being of the passenger has
been zealously guarded. Every arrangement and detail which could
possibly contribute to the comfort
has been provided. From main
truck to kielson, from stem to stem,
the ehip ie kept scrupulously -clean.
As many wended their way up
town after viewing the vessel and
-enjoying the hospitality of Captain
Foot, they were constrained to say
she was the finest vessel, with the
most popular skipper on the run.
On tbe way up there were many
musicians on board and the last
night out a concert wai given, at
which T. R. Pumphrey preaided.
A. H. Thompson will, during the
summer, run an express and passenger stage between Cascade and
Christina Lake, connecting with
the Myrtle B and the train*. Two
trip* daily. *
Don't forget the B. 0. stables
when in need of teams, stabling
room or horse feed. Every convenience is provided at these stables
for any ana all accommodations in
the livery line. *
