1902
The business office of The Evening
Sun is located at present in Columbia,
where all correspondence with it, and
exchanges should bs addressed.
Mr. Wm. Spier, of the Eastern
Townships bank, took: an honoiable
stand at tbe Board of Trade meeting
Wednesday night, when he stated he
would not support, any movement on
tbe part of the board to make any
change in the proposed amalgamation
plans not voluntarily acquiesced in by
Columbia. Mr. Spier, doubtless, discovered that a few anti-amalgama-
tionist were seeking to use the influence of the board in an effort to gain
a result they so ignominiously failed
to accomplish at the polls. His remarks were drawn out by tbe proposal of a prominent member of the
board that the name Grand Porks be
insisted on for the enlarged municipality. «____»_

The Oity of Columbia 's situated

of the Kettle river with the main Kettle river, and is distant about 300
miles east of Vancouver.
Tho natural situation of the city for
tbeuuty Is not excelled In America. A
verdure-clad and Uower-bespaugled
rolling prairie, traversed by a river or
bright, sparkling waier, fringed with
forest trees and surroundjd by mountains, fortfiiii'.; a charming combination of'pioturesquas'.iess and grandeur

The climate, taken all the year
around,'is,the best iu 'iiiiadn—part of
the summer Is rattier iiot nil dry, but
the rest of the year is enjoyable.

thare'ie an, extent «f fertile agricultural land, part of which is now being cultivate:!.
Apples, plums, pears, prunes,, cherries und all the small fruits grow
iibiinduntly. The valley surrounding
Columbia, divided into small fruit and
vegetable..farms, will sustain a large
population.
Uttilding material is plentiful in the
district. Lumber can be, procured at
fair prices, and brick lime and stone
of good quality can always be obtained when required.  ..
Tlirt mining interests are of the first
importance to this country, and will
do much to build up Columbia. Large
mineral lodes have beesr,discovered
through the mountains adjacent to
the City, and what were mere pros-
peots.a short time since are how large
paying mines.
Water is supplied the eity by pumping from a beautiful spring of exceptional purity ..capable of supplying a
city of 50,000 inhabitants.
The Granby smelter and converter
—the most modern and perfect plant
of the kind in America—employing
hundreds of men, is contiguous to the
city,
Owing to the fine climate, the central situation, the beautible environments, the bright prospects for future
growth and prosperity, Columbia will
be an educational eentre, a city of
