It is always difficult, and sometimes quite impossible, to predict
accurately   the  exact direction of
ioJal oVwTeftiwnt. -Kite - capital,
trade i».«jttremel»:semitivc in many
rcipssss, asid.ie-sosssiisassdiverted
from it* •eoustouied thsnnels by. cir-
cuimrtwnmof the inosHrivlal character;    A" tin; pebble sometimes
determines  the course of a great
river,.«nd so it happens that a bad
piece of stout, or a handsome shop
front, amy .sthife into nowchannels
I ho bulk' of. a city's trade,   But as
u rule tntfe-will rje developed where
tho natural conditions are suoh as
to Invite it   No person in possession of common sense would dream
of planting a oity in » desert, where
natural,resources wiero:wanting and
manufactories could not be jromctad
with1' success.    In a few instances
cities hsve been founded upon pure
speculation arid' boomed into communities of considerable population
by Demons skilled in the art of palaver; bnt these unnatural growths,
forced byartifioial stimulant, have
fallen  Into  decay whenever they
have been put upon their own resources.     It . is beyond' dispute a
fact .patent tor all observers that a
city,of "considerable size, of .considerable resources, of muoh energy,
and. of vast expectations, has grown
up on Borrard Inlet,    In less than
a year it has been built, and now
contains a population of about 3,000
persons—practically equal to  the
population of' Westminster.   This
new city, is the western terminus Of
thai Canadian Bacifio Railway, and
thii, having been said there remains
very , little else to be added in the
way of enumerating its resources.
But, to be the western terminus of
an immense transcontinental road
like tbe 0. P. B. is a very great deal
indeed.    The railway oompany has
a great deal of patronage, and it
meant  to use that patronage as
much as possible to build up a city
where its interests chiefly lie.   The
through tratBey th» ttantkipment of
goods, the loading and unloading of
vessels, the tourist trade, and the
permanent  workshops, will necessarily give employment to a considerable number of men, and cause
the' circulation of a good deal of
money.    Beyond the benefits af a
large transfer business, and whatever Mtrooage  may be  received
frott' 'the railway company, Vancouver has a largo lumber manufacturing inlsistry.and may be made
still more important by the estab
lishmeat ,vl 'Other s manufactories.
This   depends,   however,   almost
wholly upon her own enterprise and
the willingness of her citir-ens to
adventure capital  where the  returns, are not quite certain.   Under
present stimulous Vanoouver is certain to keep on growing for a time
st least.    At the present moment
'TEere'ilrimarge number of build-
inn in course of construction, and
although a majority of them ore
cheap snd temporary,aome of them
are ..quite, large: and  substantial.
Then   are   now   more  shops   in
Vancouver  than in Westminster,
but there ore quite a few of them
empty and the only sign board visible is the announcement ■To Let."
Wo are inclined to think the build
ing of business places is going on
mow rapidly than the circumstances
warrant, arid the same remark applies to retail dealers.     These re
marks are made from the personal
observations of the writer, and from
enquiries whichi lead iunto the conclusion that although Vanoouver is
going '• forward    with remarkable
rapidity at present, many people
have overestimated the extent of its
tattle development, and some have
conceived emmeaus notions as to
the effect the building up of this
new  oity  will have on the other
cities of the province;   It has been
our opinion always tbat the completion of theO, P. E. would necessarily be followed by a revolution
in trade   Instead ef receiving our
goods 'from the south, through Victoria, 'He shall receive them from
the east snd the west through the
0. P. R. and the Pacific steamships.
This will transfer the wholesale dis-
trihjstisjf ipeint (rem Viotoria to the
njands-sl,snd whether it ahall be
Wieumtnttui or Vanoouver depends
entirely  upon the citiiens of the
two places.   That this change will
shortly jbe brought about, every one
must perceive, and we counsel the
people of this i city to open their
eyesie thie eery great opportunities
thst are lying within their reach.
It fa rthe Wholesale trade more than
anything elee that has built up Victoria end enriched so many of her
merchants; and unless we keep our
eyes open, when thst trade leaves
the imA—tt it is sure to do—it
will ,»6t oeme to the royal eity but
to <fce>ter»y on the inlet.   In many

deepened, ocean ships of all dimensions will have no difficulty in reaching this city, and tbo advantages of
ny. fresh t waller port are well known.
This ought,■) therefore, to be the
Wholesale dpriaating point, audit
will be if am- business men exhibit
the energy necessary to make it so.
A comparison of resources shows
very largely in our favor against
any other business centre. We aro
of opinion that the building up of
Vancouver. will not interfere with
the development of Westminster.
The effect so far has been of an opposite character, for Westminster
never exhibited so many signs of
life and growth as it does at tho
present moment. It is useless, however, for us'to shut out eyes to the
fact that a eity is springing into existence on Burrard Inlet. The fact
is patent, and it is the mark of
wisdom not to quarrel with facts,
but to meet them with judgment
and firmness. Wo havo no reason
to four the rivalry of Vancouver if
our people address themselves intelligently to the development of their
resources and turn their undoubted
advantages to practical account.

of the cause.
" Bounding the corner ot an alley I

N THE 10TH OF JANUARY, 1887,
the Coiujibias Newspaper and
Printing Concern was purchased by a
joint stock company composeil of cltiiens
of New Westminster, to be known as the
"British* Columbian Printing Co.,
Limited'." Tho concern has been for
nearly a year owned and controlled by
the British Columbia Stationery and
Printing Company, ol New Westminster,
Victoria and VancouTer. Tlio object of
tho new company 1. to oontinue the publication of the British Columbian newspaper and carry on a general printing and
publishing concern, controlled entirely by
those whose Individual Interest It will be
to promote the development, especially
of this Mainland. There will be no
slackening of the energy hitherto dis*
played In the management ef the establishment, and its patrons may rely upon
receiving full value for their money.
The Colombian will oontinue to be entirely Independent In both Dominion and
provincial politics, and will dovote Itself
to the advancement of such schemes as
may be considered in the publlo Interest.
The concern Is now entirely separate from
any oth.r business, the book tnd
stationery: establishment in this city
having been taken over by Mr. T. B.
Pearaoo, who will continue to carry it on
In hie own natno aad for his own benefit.
It is desirable that a dally newspaper
should be maintained in this city, and
the new company asks for publlo patronage on the ground that lt la engaged In
an enterprise calculated to promote the
publlo Welfare, It asks that the Columbian bo judged on Its own merits tad
supported only so long u Its policy ts
enconslltt with its professions. Inconsequence of tills business change all ao-
connts duo the' concern must be settled
without delay so that the hooks of the
former company may be adjusted aud
oloeed. Address all communications and
remittances to   .

in this paper Mr. Daggett by implication denies this, lt is a matter of
very great importance, however, and
ought not to pass from public notice
until a thorough investigation has been
made. If the building is such as represented by Mr. Webb, the owners
should bo required at ante to make
such alterations as will ensure the
safety of guests. Don't let us have
